Commonwealth Games 2018

I was seduced by the Gold Coast in April,

The Commonwealth Games entertained me from this magical Australian place,

Countries united by a Commonwealth heritage,

In competition, determined to win every Gold medal, match, game and race.

Australia dominated the pool and medals table,

Team England gained an admirable second place with their achievements and medals haul,

There were medals for African, Asian, Oceania, European and Caribbean nations,

They joined in the spirit of these \'friendly games,\' and had a ball.

The Commonwealth Games comes only once every four years,

Next Games - Birmingham, England 2022,

Commonwealth sports men and women await in preparation for the next Games,

Driven by the will to win and their competitive spirits refreshed and anew.
