It was also our most diverse Games ever with 65 para athletes, medallists aged from 17 to 74, and more women than men representing England for the first time in Games history.
The medal rush started on day one when Alex Yee crossed the line to take gold in the men’s triathlon. Thereafter, Team England’s athletes excelled across the board and picked up medals on land, water, sand, wheels, beams, rings, and varied apparatus all over Birmingham and beyond.
As the Games progressed, England surpassed its previous medal record when Birmingham local Delicious Orie boxed his way to gold, while an England 1-2 in the mixed diving on the final day secured our highest medal haul with 17-year-old Andrea Spendolini-Sirieix taking home her second gold of the Games.
The class of 2022 was a team to be proud of: determined, successful, representative of England and united by a love for sport.
