Commonwealth Games Athletics & Para Athletics
August 2 @ 12:00 am
No Commonwealth Games would be complete without an extensive collection of track and field disciplines at its heart, and Birmingham 2022 is no different. Athletics has been crucial to Games programmes since the inaugural event in 1930, and countless Commonwealth records have been broken, set, and broken again.
As well as the ever-present athletics disciplines, Birmingham 2022 will see the largest para athletics field of any games to date, with 8 sports included in the itinerary. With the exception of the marathon, the athletics and para athletics will take place in the city’s redeveloped Alexander Stadium, a venue with considerable athletic pedigree, and a therefore fitting stage for the world’s best to compete on.
