Share the dream: Progressive Commonwealth Games open in the Gold Coast


GOLD COAST, Australia — The 21st edition of the "Friendly Games" are officially underway, but this year's event — which features the official motto, Share the Dream — could also be dubbed the "Progressive Games."

There are 133 women's and men's events each, plus nine mixed or open events in the east Australian city of Gold Coast, and that change is not lost on Canadian diving star Meaghan Benfeito.
