Team England boss Mark England praises ‘extraordinary games’ after record medal win

England’s record performance at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham bodes well for a medal boost at the Paris Olympics in two years, according to Head of Mission Mark England.

Team England surpassed their previous overall medal tally by two, finishing with 176, while their final gold medal of 57 was just one short of their Glasgow 2014 record.

“These have been absolutely exceptional games for Team England and what’s exceptional about it is that it’s a very young and ambitious team,” said England.

“We have 17-year-olds winning old medals and it’s by far the best home performance of any English team at the Commonwealth Games.”

England’s performance secured them second place in the final medal table behind Australia, who ended the 11 days of competition with 67 gold medals out of 178 in total.

Scotland finished the Games with 13 gold medals from a total of 51, beating their previous record for medals won outside of their Glasgow home games in 2014.

Northern Ireland’s seven golds – including five in the boxing ring – beat their previous gold of seven from 1994, while Wales finished with eight of 28 golds. Team England boss Mark England praises ‘extraordinary games’ after record medal win
