In every major sports event, we usually look forward to something unique the event hosts have to offer. During the last Olympics, we were treated to a spectacular opening ceremony and the Bird’s nest stadium was awe-inspiring. This year’s Commonwealth games may be marred by controversy and negativity but that doesn’t stop the athletes from breaking personal records and claiming new records. Not only that, a lot of things are unique about this year’s commonwealth games. Take for example, in all the awarding ceremonies, a sash rather than flowers is handed out to the winners (as seen above). We really don’t know the significance of this but this is quite possibly in line with Indian traditions. Well, we think this is quite better than a disposable item (such as a flower) and we hope to see more unique items from future games. There are other unique aspects of this year’s games but that is beyond the scope of this post.
