    It is mentioned here that 13 out of 31 sports will be participating in the Commonwealth Games from Ghana. You listed only 12 sports so which one is the 13th? I can see that swimming is not mentioned, although Ghana sent swimmers to Birmingham to participate in the competition. Please check and report the correct information. Thank you.
