Athletes from 71 countries are expected to vie for honors in 17 disciplines at the Games from July 23 to August 3, 2014.

Thrilled at being appointed as a non-executive director of the Board of Commonwealth Games England, Bhanu said: “I feel honored and excited to be a part of the Commonwealth Games England board. Having been a keen sportsman in my youth, sport has always been close to my heart.” He further added: “In 2010 I chaired the business advisory board for the [Commonwealth] Games in India, and I feel confident that my experience will contribute to the future working of the board.”

Commonwealth Games England Chairman Sir Andrew Foster welcomed Bhanu’s appointment saying: “I am delighted to welcome Bhanu to the Board of Commonwealth Games England, and look forward to working with him on our plans for Glasgow 2014. It is always good to renew the Board and bring in new faces with fresh ideas, and Bhanu’s background means he is ideally suited to the task at hand. I am certain that we will all benefit from Bhanu’s knowledge and experience.”
