CAMERON LEVINS IS scheduled to run the 5000m and 10000m at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

The XX Commonwealth Games open July 23 in Glasgow, Scotland, and Black Creek’s Cameron Levins will be wearing the Maple Leaf in the athletics events.

Canada plans to send a team of 267 athletes, with several Olympic and world championship medallists among the group, along with some rising stars.

Athletics will once again highlight the program in Glasgow, with some 50 events over seven days.

The action starts July 27 with the men’s and women’s marathons on the streets of Glasgow, plus the opening track and field events at renovated 52,000-seat Hampden Park, home of Scotland’s national soccer team.

Levins is scheduled to run in two events, the 5000m on Sunday, July 27 and the 10000m on Friday, Aug. 1. Supporters of the 2012 Olympian can catch his races on YouTube at http://news.stv.tv/west-central/282759-glasgow-2014-games-to-be-streamed-live-on-youtube-for-first-time/, with the 5000m at 9:40 a.m. B.C. time and the 10000m on Aug. 1 at 12:05 p.m. B.C. time.

YouTube notes their dedicated Games channel will be streamed on the official Glasgow 2014 YouTube channel providing non-stop coverage of the Games.

The coverage will focus on the best live sport available with regular short highlights from other venues.

It means that this month’s Games is the first to be available to viewers on the Internet regardless of where they may be in the world.

The Games channel will run from the start of the first significant action each day to the end of the last live competition. The live output will be followed by that same day’s two-hour long highlights shows.

CBC TV is providing live event streaming throughout the Games at http://www.cbc.ca/sports/commonwealthgames.

 

On July 27 they will live stream events at 3:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. then show Day 4 highlights at 5:30 p.m. On Aug. 1 they will have live stream events at 3:30 a.m. and show Day 9 highlights at 6 p.m. All times are PDT and the schedule is subject to change.
