Every day, Newsround will bring you a daily guide to the main events, big names and best stories at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

We will look ahead to where and when we might expect some of each day's key moments.

Gold medals to be won today: 27. Athletics (men's 100m, shot put, Para-sport 100m T37 and Para-sport discus F42/44; women's 100m, hammer throw and Para-sport 100m T12), badminton (mixed team event), lawn bowls (men's pairs and triples), shooting (men's 50m pistol and 50m rifle prone events, women's trap and 50m rifle prone events), squash (men's and women's singles), swimming (men's 200m back, 50m breast, 100m fly and Para-sport 200m SM8 medley, women's 800m free, 100m free, 100m breast and 200m fly), table tennis (men's team), weightlifting (women's 69kg, men's 85kg).

Highlights include:

14:30 - Squash: The singles finals take place with England expected to dominate the men's event. World champion Nick Matthew and James Willstrop are the top two seeds, with Matthew looking to become the first man to retain a Commonwealth singles title. In the women's singles England's Laura Massaro won this year's world title and has high hopes as the second seed.

14:00 - Hockey: Australia's women face England in the group-stages. In the recent Hockey World Cup in the Netherlands Australia were the top Commonwealth nation, losing to the Dutch in the women's final, while England's women finished a surprising 11th of 12 teams.

Wales will face Scotland's women in the following match at 16:00 BST. Scotland are ranked 16th in the world heading into Glasgow 2014 while Wales are ranked 32nd.

15:00 - Badminton: Hosts Scotland have a strong entry led by Imogen Bankier and Robert Blair, while their mixed doubles rivals Chris and Gabby Adcock lead the England line-up.

18:30 - Boxing: Women's boxing makes its Commonwealth Games debut and England's Olympic champion Nicola Adams is still the star attraction as the world number one at flyweight. Team-mates Natasha Jonas and Savannah Marshall will also fight, while Alanna Murphy is Northern Ireland's entrant.

19:00 - Athletics: Sorry - there won't be any Usain Bolt today. The Jamaican track legend and six-time Olympic champion is expected to feature only in the 4x100m relay event on Friday and Saturday this week. His team-mate Yohan Blake is missing the Commonwealth Games entirely, leaving Nickel Ashmeade, Jason Livermore and Kemar Bailey-Cole flying the Jamaican flag in the 100m.

Adam Gemili, Richard Kilty and Harry Aikines-Aryeetey are the English entrants for this event, with neither James Dasaolu nor Chijindu Ujah - who recently became the third British male to run sub-10 seconds - performing well enough during the qualifying period to be selected. No Scots or Welsh will take part.

Visually impaired Northern Irish sprinter Jason Smyth has been selected to race in the 100m despite struggling with injury and failing to meet the qualification time. Aled Davies, captain of the Welsh team for Glasgow 2014, competes in the Para-sport discus F42 event with Daniel Greaves representing England. Scotland's Libby Clegg, twice a Paralympic silver medallist, races in the women's T12 100m.
