Australia is a fantastic sporting nation and the best of our amazing athletes will begin competing at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham this Friday.

From the 28th of July to the 4th of August, more than 420 elite Australian athletes will compete across all 21 sporting disciplines wearing the Green and Gold.

“I have no doubt Australians right across the country will be cheering our athletes by interacting on social media using #BeBoldinGold and even becoming inspired to take up a new sport,” Shadow Minister Ruston said.

“Australia’s representation at the 2022 Commonwealth Games is a credit to all of the coaches, support staff, families and importantly local communities who support our athletes to train and prepare for events on the world stage. I’m excited to soon be watching our Athletes make us proud to be Australians.

Federal Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry congratulated Queensland athletes on achieving the impressive feat of being selected to compete in the Commonwealth Games.

“It is a great honour that my state has 122 representatives at the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
“I encourage everyone in Queensland to support our amazing Australian athletes,” Ms Landry said.
