Let the Games begin!

The British swimming teams look strong as the first week of the 2018 Commonwealth Games gets underway in the Gold Coast.

Our director and Olympic medallist, Steve Parry (pictured left with equestrian commentator, John Hunt), is at the Optus Aquatic Centre with BBC Sport to report on the events as they unfold. The Games will also be a trip down memory lane for Steve, who trained with the British team at the venue in the late 90s. 

Discussing the event, Steve said, "It's great to be back here where I have so many fond memories. I'm really excited about the chances our Home Nations have this year and let's not forget, Great Britain actually finished second in the medal table at the World Championships, ahead of Australia, so they'll have a lot to prove over the next week."
