Commonwealth Games 2018 Opening Ceremony highlights: The 21st edition of Commonwealth Games has begun in great style at the Gold Coast. 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.
