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.
