    On this week's Sportsworld podcast, Lee James was at one of the biggest global sporting events - the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Commonwealth Games historian Philip Barker and outgoing Commonwealth Games chief exectutive Mike Hooper joined Lee to discuss why the Games are so important and how it's profile can be improved. What lengths do other athletes have to go to, to make their dream of competing at the Commonwealth Games a reality? To find out, Lee was joined by St Helena swimmer Ben Dillon and Ghana's first track cyclist Jeddie Amoako-Ackah who thinks the future of African cycling is bright. Sunday was a ground breaking day for womens cycling. After vigorous campaigning from some of the worlds elite women road racers, the first edition of La Course took place in the French capital. Chrissie Wellington has been one of those campaigning - she told Sportsworld's Sarah Mulkerrins that she hopes it will only be the start of a bigger Course in the future.
