DAILY GK UPDATE - 24th July 1. Spectacular ceremony marks 20th CWG opening in Glasgow i. The 20th Commonwealth Games began in Glasgow. Scotland rolled out a spectacular Opening Ceremony with a dazzling and colourful display of their unique culture and heritage, which also had some Indian flavour. ii. A surprisingly subdued Glasgow suddenly sprang to life and exuberance with a three-hour mesmerising show of light and sound and colourful hues which the organisers claimed was watched by more than one billion people. iii. As per convention, the head of Commonwealth countries Queen Elizabeth II declared the Games Open last night. iv. Britain's all time most successful Olympian cyclist and a Scot himself, Sir Chris Hoy was given the honour of presenting the Queens Baton to Her Majesty who read out her message to the Commonwealth before declaring the games open.

The producers of the Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony and many Scottish Nationalists are complaining that when the Red Arrows flew over Glasgow, they displayed their red, white and blue vapour trails whereas they wanted the blue and white only for Scotland. They had to spoil it didn't they? Get real, the Red Arrows are totally British, they always show the red, white and blue. Many Nats act and talk as if Scotland is already independent. If, God forbid, they achieve their aim, they won't get the Red Arrows at all.
A request by the producers of the Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony that the Red Arrows trail the colours of the Scottish Saltire in the Glasgow sky to mark the Queen’s arrival at the event was rejected by Whitehall, it has emerged.
PROPOSALS for the Red Arrows to release smoke in the blue-and-white colours of Scotland’s Saltire at last night’s Opening Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow were ditched in favour of their traditional red, white and blue.
the front pages. 'Britain Bakes For A Month' says the Express, the paper also has that picture of the Queen photobomb selfie. 'Britain's recovery outstrips the world' is the headline in the Times - as it looks ahead to GDP figures due out this morning. The same story leads the Telegraph which says Britain's economy is growing faster than those of every other major developed country. The paper also pictures a host of English sporting success at the Commonwealth Games. But, the i paper says the poorest are still feeling the pinch because of benefits cuts and council tax rises. The Independent says it effects more than two million people in England. The paper also pictures Palestinian children wounded in an Israeli airstrike which hit a school. The Guardian has more from its investigation into standards in the poultry industry.

New Zealand struck gold for the first time at the Commonwealth Games in real style at the Chris Hoy velodrome today. The trio of Ethan Mitchell, Sam Webster and Eddie Dawkins flew around the 250m track in a Games record time of 43.181 seconds, eclipsing the record they had set in qualifying a couple of hours earlier. The ebullient Dawkins immediately lifted his bike above his head saluting a block of New Zealand fans, before a New Zealand flag was produced and draped around the trio's shoulders. "We came here to win gold and to walk away with that is just...unreal," Mitchell told Sky Sport. While you were sleeping - Day 1 "I think we just had to do the same process we did in the qualifying, we rode really well. We went out quicker and to back up like that is a credit to how fast these guys [Webster, Dawkins] go really." They always had their noses in front of gallant England, who recorded a time of 43.706s. As world champions, courtesy of their victory in Cali, Colombia earlier this year, they were favour ...

Absolutely great to see the grand Opening Ceremony of Commonwealth Games - fantastic spectacle for para athletes joining up with fellow athletes as equals - yet despite my past attempts I am still saddened that Paralympics didn't want to embrace Deaflympic athletes to be amongst the equals at Commonwealth Games - anyhow I remain optimistic this will be realised one day.

Six-times Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt and his coach Glen Mills believe the Jamaican sprinter can run even faster as he targets the 2015 world championships and the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro. It has been five years since Bolt set the 100m world record of 19.58 seconds and the 200m best of 19.19 at the Berlin world championships, and this season began late for him as he recovered from minor foot surgery and a hamstring injury. The lanky Jamaican missed nine weeks of training after having surgery on his left foot in March but shrugged off any suggestion that he might be past his best as prepares for the sprint relay at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow next month. - NBA star LeBron James, whose recent return to the Cleveland Cavaliers in his home state of Ohio sparked a frenzy in the small town where he has a home, sent sweet apologies to the community in the form of 800 cupcakes. The Bath Township police department received five dozen of the desserts, along with a note apologizing for "chaos ...

Commonwealth Games Begins Tonight Sir Chris Hoy says Glasgow will deliver “The biggest and best Commonwealth Games we’ve ever seen”, ahead of the Opening Ceremony tonight. About 4,500 athletes from 71 nations will take part in the 20th edition of the Games, which run until 3 August. “It’s going to be spectacular,” said Scotland’s six-time Olympic and double Commonwealth champion. Swimmer Michael Jamieson, a big Scots medal hope, added: “You can already see there’s a buzz around the city.” The 25-year-old silver medallist from the 2012 Olympics, who is chasing 200m breaststroke gold on the opening day of action on Thursday, said: “It’s known as the friendly Games for a reason. It just has such a great feel about it.” The reputation of the Commonwealth Games was damaged by the 2010 Games in Delhi, which were plagued by poor ticket sales and problems with venues and accommodation. Organisers were forced to give away thousands of free tickets after seats remained unsold, but that sti ...
