The Commonwealth Games are a large, international, multi-sport festival held every four years. Athletes come from nations and territories that are members of the British Commonwealth. As with the Olympics, the games draw athletes from all regions of the world. They have also faced the same issues of international politics, terrorism, and economic inequalities that face all international sporting events. Nonetheless, the games have continued to grow and prosper.
