Marked as being the largest sports event to be held in the UK for a decade, the Commonwealth Games is certainly an event to look forward to. After over a year of turbulence across the world caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the disruption to most training schedules, Birmingham 2022 feels like it might just be the light at the end of a tunnel.

Stuart Martin, England Talent Pathway Manager, said, “The commitment of English weightlifters and coaches over the last 12-months delivered some strong performances and progress for a large number of athletes. Selection was highly competitive with a number of international and previous commonwealth medallists as well as young up and coming individuals. There is going to be a lot of competition for places which is a strong position for England to find itself 18-months from the games.”
