Commonwealth Games Athletics Schedule

The 2022 Commonwealth Games will see the return of many world-class athletes, who will be determined to capture the gold medal in Eugene across multiple disciplines. Here we take a look at the schedule, date, time, venue of the tournament, venue, and live stream details.

One of the several sports played at the every four years Commonwealth Games tournament is athletics, which has been a part of the Commonwealth Games since the 1930 British Empire Games. It has been a part of every edition of the Games’ sporting schedule because it is a fundamental sport.

Commonwealth Games 2022 Athletics Schedule: Date, Time, Team, Venue, Events, Tickets

One of the main events in the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England, will be athletics. Athletics was one of the first sports included in the Inter-Empire Games in 1911, which is considered to be the forerunner of the Commonwealth Games.

The competition will be split into two parts: the four marathon events, including the wheelchair marathon, are set for July 30th, and the remaining 54 events, including 10 para-athletics events, will take place between August 2 and August 7, 2022. Meanwhile, the much-anticipated Men’s Javelin Throw competition featuring Neeraj Chopra will get underway on August 5 with the final taking place on August 7.

The Alexander Stadium, which serves as the location for the opening and closing ceremonies, will host the track and field competitions. The marathons will take place along a route that travels through Smithfield, Victoria Square, and Bournville, three well-known locations in the city center.

Indian Contingent for 2022 Commonwealth Games Athletics Events & Achievements

A few well-known athletes in the Indian athletics team are Murali Sreeshankar, Avinash Sable, Hima Das, Dutee Chand, Anu Rani, and Seema Punia.
India will send two teams to the Commonwealth Games 2022: an athletics team with 32 members and a para-athletics team with six members. While the para athletes will compete in two events, Indian athletes will compete in 16 other disciplines.

The reigning Olympic champion, Neeraj Chopra, once again made history by winning the silver medal in the javelin throw competition at the World Athletics Championships. With a best throw of 88.13 metres, the 24-year-old finished behind Grenada’s Anderson Peters for second place. In the coming week, Neeraj will once again command attention as he competes at the Commonwealth Games in an effort to win his second consecutive gold medal.

At the Commonwealth Games thus far, India has won 28 medals in athletics, including 5 golds. As the nation strives for the best-ever haul in track & field and overall in Birmingham 2022, Chopra and Co. will want to contribute to the total.
