The Commonwealth Games, sometimes known as the Friendly Games, are a quadrennial international multi-sport tournament that brings together competitors from the Commonwealth of Nations. With the exception of 1942 and 1946 (which were cancelled due to World War II), the event has been held every four years since 1930. From 1930 to 1950, the Games were known as the British Empire Games, then the British Empire and Commonwealth Games from 1954 to 1966, and finally the British Commonwealth Games from 1970 to 1974. Since 2002, athletes with disabilities have been accepted as full members of their country teams, making the Commonwealth Games the first completely inclusive international multi-sport event. The Games became the first global multi-sport event to include an equal number of men’s and women’s medal events in 2018, and four years later, they are the first global multi-sport event to feature more events for women than men. This year Commonwealth Games began at Birmingham on Thursday 28 July 2022 and end with some beautiful memories, celebrations and medals.
