Nijel Amos (800m Botswana) has the odds stacked in his favour, as world record holder David Rudisha skips these Games. For Botswana this could be big, especially as Babaloki Thebe and Isaac Makwala are poised to battle it out for the 400m gold.
Great expectations from Nigeria’s Glasgow star, Okagbare, will be steel-eyed as she looks to defend her sprint double, while Kenya pins hope on twin-force Helen Obiri (5000m) and Conseslus Kipruto (3000m)
Four dedicated DStv channels - SS11, SS12, SS13 (Family package) and SS14 (Access Package) - are all set to share moments of the Commonwealth Games.
