One half of an iconic Team England pairing, Liam Pitchford successfully defended his men's doubles title in Birmingham 2022.
Pitchford joined forces with long-time doubles partner Paul Drinkhall to capture another gold medal, in a complete replay of their 2018 final against India on the Gold Coast.
And with men's singles silver and team bronze, it was a complete set of silverware on home soil for the table tennis ace.
Pitchford’s rise to the summit of table tennis has been relentless, already one of the most successful English singles players of all time.
The East Midlands athlete first broke into the world top 20 in 2018 and has now been there for two years continuously.
Pitchford has a mighty Commonwealth Games record, winning eleven medals in Team England colours since his debut at New Delhi 2010.
He brought back three gongs from the Gold Coast - another complete set of medals - doubles gold alongside Drinkhall, mixed doubles silver with Tin-Tin Ho and team bronze.
