Birmingham 2022

Birmingham 2022 brought together 6,500 athletes and officials in one of the youngest cities in Europe, cheered on by a diverse, welcoming and sport-loving city. It was Team Scotland’s best Commonwealth Games ever outside Scotland and just two medals short of the record tally at Glasgow 2014.

Athletes competed across a total of 19 sports with Women’s Cricket and both 3 x 3 and Wheelchair Basketball making their Commonwealth Games debut. With eight para sports and 135 women’s medal events, Birmingham 2022 had the largest ever female and para sport programme to date and, for the first time ever, Team Scotland was represented by more female athletes than male.
