BREAKING NEWS...Inside Lines: New gay rights row now threatens Glasgow's Games

Just as Vladimir Putin is cynically attempting to stem the avalanche of opprobrium descending on Sochi’s Winter Olympics over Russia’s anti-gay legislation, we hear of a similar political hazard threatening another major sporting showpiece, one much closer to home.

Apparently john barrowman kissing a bloke is a major talking point and scandal because in 42 of 53 commonwealth countries, it’s illegal to be gay. Honestly I won’t be happy until a kiss like that is normal, or at the most a small tribute to those who fought for equality. It certainly never bothered me.

Lighting Bolt controversy


Jamaica’s sprint sensation Lighting Usain Bolt has been caught up in storm of controversy at the XX Commonwealth Games.

The world record holder of the 100m and 200m metres has allegedly made comments that would suggest that the Glasgow games are yet to excite him.

The Times newspaper quoted the world’s fastest man as saying he was “not really” having fun in Glasgow.

Also, Bolt was further quoted…

CWG 2014: Here’s all about 13 venues that will host the Glasgow Games!

NEI India Film Editing Via Daily.Bhaskar New Delhi: Four years back, when New Delhi readied itself to host Commonwealth Games, the event was declared an unmitigated disaster even before the opening ceremony. As it turned out, the event was a grand success, both in terms of organization and India’s medal tally. Now, with the twentieth edition of the Games being held in British Isles, the Indian contingent will be devoid of the crucial home support that saw them court unprecedented success in the summer of 2010.

Also, with most of prospective medal events not being part of Glasgow Games, it will take a lot out of Indian flagbearers to match their 101-medal tally of New Delhi.

That aside, thanks to the recently concluded FIFA World Cup and the ongoing Test series in England, CWG 2014 has failed to elicit discernable interest among India’s sports followers.

However, in course of next 11 days, as over 71 nations slog it out for sporting supremacy across 17 games, the attention is bound to return. We give you a lowdown on 13 venues that will host the Games:

Scotland launches £90m security operation to keep Games safe

The security operation around the Commonwealth Games will be the biggest ever staged in Scotland and comes at a cost of £90m. Led by Police Scotland, it also includes the Armed Forces, prison officers, transport police and a number of private security firms. Organisers want Glasgow 2014 to be known as the “friendly Games” but transport and entry around each of the venues will be tightly controlled, with spectators warned to expect airport-style checks with X-ray machines and scanners being used.

We look at outbreaks of disease, for example, natural disasters - a whole wide range of potential things that could happen and our plan takes account of all of those.

Deputy Chief Constable Steve Allen

The operation is being managed from a 24-hour control centre in Govan with police, Ministry of Defence, Crown Office, Government, fire and rescue and ambulance officials providing support. In total, 17 private security firms will be involved in the operation, including G4S, who will provide stewarding. The firm was heavily criticised for its part in the London Olympics when thousands of military personnel had to be drafted in after the company admitted it might not be able to provide enough guards.
