Birmingham 2022 is teasing a big announcement they’ll make tomorrow. I would imagine this will be the final sports program (complete with events, and/or schedule), motto, or some big celebrity endorse

Good for the Colonial Games.

They’ve shuffled the Athletics schedule to make it more likely that big names would compete.

The 20 kilometer race walking events in athletics have been downgraded to 10 kilometer track events. Disappointing, but at least they still have race walking at the Games.

Yeah, I’m bummed about the race walk too. Some other points that stood out to me were Mixed Synchro events in Diving, Madison missing from Track Cycling, and the inclusion of more para sports/events.

 

I think this a solid program of events for the Commonwealth Games. My only complaint remains the exclusion of shooting. I wouldn’t mind seeing Tennis or Archery again either.

Not surprised, people preach gender equality, but now men have less events, so its technically not gender equality, lol

 

Hamilton 2026 (the next games bid) was touting they are the first games to offer more for women, but I guess not trolol.

 

The 10km race walk is absolutely shocking. Who decided to approve this bs? @heywoodu@hckosice

 

All the events are expected more or less, at least men's events were not dropped to get more women's events.


Happy that more para athletes will get a shot too compete as well, which is unique about these games. 

 

Disappointed in the team sizes for the team sports. Basketball can easily have 12 per event, beach volleyball 16, rugby women can go to 12.
