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.

Some news on the Commonwealth Games archery and shooting compromise: https://games24.totallympics.com/?p=1764

 

One week following the Closing Ceremony of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, the CGF shall issue a medal table that includes results from the Chandigarh 2022 Commonwealth Archery and Shooting Championships, as a further and final legitimate ranking of competing nations and territories from the respective competitions.

 

So the "final official" rankings will essentially be forgotten by the general public. I guess India gets to feel good about their extra medals? Seems like a bit of a slap in the face to all parties.

With this drama around the Commonwealth Games, I thought I’d ask the following question. 
 

Does anyone actually care about the medal table?

 

I have never once in my life cared where the US anyone else finished on the medal table. I only care about how many countries won gold, and how many countries won medals. The medal table is nice for me because I can see both of those data points easily, and I can see how medals an individual country won. I’m not really concerned with the actual placing, and I think countries that put an emphasis on their placing have a poor strategy for success.

I've spent time in both Australia and the UK -and the US

In no country have I see more triumphalism about medals than the UK . The UK media goes on and on about medals and the Olympics . In the other countries they are hardly mentioned outside the 2 weeks of competition 

Mind you no country spends more money on winning medals than the UK -or is that GB

Well... People here would be upset if Indonesia is not top 3 in SEA Games medal table, or even worse below Malaysia (you can imagine what happened in 2017 :p)
