The wrestling event has three different formats due to the low number of athletes

 

5 athletes: round robin (nordic)

6-7 athletes: group stage, then semifinal+final

8+ athletes: bracket with reprechage

 

6/12 events have less than 8 athletes. Not a very good showing and could put the sport at risk from appearing in future games (it is an optional sport)

All team sizes added to the first page.

Australia as hosts will have the largest team of 474, with England (396) and Canada (282) rounding out the top 3 largest delegations.

Gambia with 6 athletes has the smallest team as it was only allowed to compete a few days ago, both Tuvalu and Montserrat with 7 athletes each have the other smallest teams. Brunei who only had 1 athlete in 2014, has 10 in 2018 who will all compete in Lawn Bowls.

Not a clue, there are some funny stories in the teams though!

Imo Fiamalua (Tuvulu's Javelin Thrower) has 4 caps for the National Football Team and scored for the Tuvulu Futsal team at the Oceanian Championships.

Montserrat have even managed to enter 6 athletes into the 4x100m Relay, which means 1 in every 980 people in Montserrat will be competing in their relay team!
