Belize At Commonwealth Games 2014

The Commonwealth Games opened earlier today in Glasgow, Scotland. This station is airing the games daily at two o’clock in the afternoons beginning today through August third with two-hour highlights.   At the momentous opening ceremonies of Glasgow 2014, the Commonwealth Federation and UNICEF partnered to raise funds for Children of the Commonwealth in a programme called Put Children First. It was a star studded event which included presentations by international singing superstar Nicole Scherzinger and cycling legend Sir Chris Hoy. An estimated one billion viewers from across the Commonwealth experienced the splendour of the opening ceremony and heard from the Head of the commonwealth, Queen Elizabeth, who declared the games officially open.
