Commonwealth Games 2022

The Games, which are supported by the fundamental ideals of humanity, equality, and destiny, seek to bring the Commonwealth family closer together through a spectacular festival of sport. The event, also known as the “Friendly Games,” is renowned for encouraging athletes to compete in an atmosphere of fair play and camaraderie.

Nearly 200 Indian competitors will be competing for gold in 16 different sports from July 28 to August 8 at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

Indian Medal Winners at Commonwealth Games 2022

Indian athletes placed third overall at the 2018 Gold Coast edition with 66 medals won, including 26 gold, 20 silver, and 20 bronze, behind hosts Australia and England.

India would find it difficult to equal their Gold Coast 2018 medal total because of shooting, which was removed from the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games schedule and provided 16 of the 66 medals at Gold Coast 2018.
