Canadians aim to win over 100 medals at Commonwealth Games
Canada will send 283 athletes to the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, looking to mine 100-plus medals Down Under.
The Games, which run April 4-15, will draw more than 6,500 athletes and officials from some 70 countries and territories. Competition will cover 18 sports and seven para-sports, although Canada is not entered in netball.
Beach volleyball, para-triathlon and women's rugby sevens make their Commonwealth Games debuts, sports that should boost the Canadian medal count.
