Athletics is often seen as the main event of any multi-sport games and the 2018 Commonwealth Games will be no different. A total of 58 gold medals will be available in track and field for Team England as athletes and para-athletes come together to compete for Team and Country.
Athletes compete to run faster, jump better or throw farther than their competitors across a variety of iconic distances and disciplines.
Team England is one of the only times that athletes and para-athletes compete in the same team and there will be 11 para-athletics Gold medals up for grabs at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Team England is the most successful athletics nation in the history of the Commonwealth Games. The Gold Coast 2018 team will include household names such as 2012 Olympic Champion Greg Rutherford, Katarina Johnson Thompson and 2016 Paralympic Champion Kadeena Cox.
