Winter Commonwealth Games?


Recommended Posts

If a Winter Commonwealth Games were to be initiated, it would most likely be like the Asian Winter games, effectively all current Winter Olympic sports minus, bobsleigh, luge, skeleton, ski jumping and the Nordic combined.

Essentially, no Bobsleigh track and Ski Jumps in order to cut down costs.

It could be like an Asian games that would allow such nations to get valuable experience in order to host a Winter Olympics, but Canada doesn't need that, Australia is a long shot, and NZ is better off just going for a future Winter Olympics bid anyways.

IMHO, I feel that it's unfeasible, just needless costs for the host nation, limitations of potential locations, (Canada, NZ, Australia and possibly Scotland) so basically, the lack of locations, and potential competing nations would seem pointless for the establishment of a Winter Commonwealth Games.

Exactly. Nicely put. It would just make absolutely no sense to create a Winter version.

Hey! I forgot to add India (who considered to bid for 2014 using the ski slopes of Shimla, which of course got lack of government support) and if remotely more so, Pakistan! Heck, while we're at it, why not add Tanzania, which has Mount Kilimanjaro? :lol:
