2014 Commonwealth Games Come to a Close

Over the weekend, a major international sporting event came to a close.

But, perhaps because the US wasn't taking part, you may not have heard too much about the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Hosted in Glasgow, Scotland, the Commonwealth Games are a multi-sport event featuring nations in and associated with the British Commonwealth...from England to Ireland to Jamaica and Australia.

Aside from events like track and field, swimming and badminton, the games also feature unique events like lawn bowling, and netball, which is basically like basketball without a backboard.

England won the medal count this year, followed by Australia, and then Canada.
