Commonwealth Games 2022 LIVE: Latest updates and results today

Queen’s Baton arrives in Birmingham on the eve of the Commonwealth Games

The 2022 Commonwealth Games is underway after last night’s Opening Ceremony to kick off 10 days of intense sporting action. Celebrities and musicians welcomed athletes from across the Commonwealth to a three hour performance showcasing the best and brightest from the West Midlands. More than 5,000 athletes from 72 nations and territories will take part in the games, with 280 medals up for grabs.

16 of these will be offered on the first day, as gymnastics, triathlon and netball begin on Friday. Olympic silver medalist Alex Yee took gold in the men’s triathlon for the first medal of the Games for Team England. Georgia Taylor-Brown, also a heroine from Tokyo, took silver in the women’s race.

Women’s T20 cricket makes its Commonwealth debut with a big game as Australia faced India at Edgbaston while England battled Trinidad and Tobago to start their netball defense around midday. There’s track cycling action at the Lee Valley VeloPark in London – including the men’s and women’s team pursuits and team sprint final – before the action moves to the pool and the first of the swimming medals is decided later in the evening.
