Commonwealth Games

2nd wave of BD athletes leaves for Glasgow

Sports Reporter

Five weightlifters and three cyclists of the Bangladesh contingent left here for Scotland yesterday morning to take part in the XX Commonwealth Games to be held in Glasgow from July 23 to September 3.
Bangladeshi shooters had earlier flown out of here for Glasgow with hopes of bagging medals in the 10m air rifle event but weightlifters and cyclists have no such big aspirations; rather they want to improve their individual records and prepare for next year's South Asian Games.
Athletes for the swimming, boxing, table tennis and badminton events are scheduled to leave here today morning while the remaining athletes in gymnastics, wrestling and athletics are supposed to fly out on July 24.
Bangladesh will be taking part in 10 disciplines with hopes of winning medals in only shooting and gymnastics.
