More than 4,500 athletes from 71 nations will compete for 275 gold medals at the Commonwealth Games. This is the first major multi-sport event which will have the same number of men’s and women’s medal events. The Games will continue for 12 days in Australia with para-athletes also included in the same schedule. India has sent a 227-member strong contingent for the Games and ace badminton player PV Sindhu was the flag-bearer for India at the opening ceremony. The entire 227-member contingent of India will not be present at the opening ceremony, however, as some athletes have their events scheduled towards the end of the Games.
