Important Commonwealth Events You Just Must See

Gymnastics: ladies individual all-round, Sunday 31 July

Swimming: men’s 100m breaststroke final, Sunday 31 July

Three-time Olympic champion Adam Peaty was unable to defend his 50m and 100m breaststroke world titles last month after breaking his foot in May. Barely competing this year, he admitted he has no idea how he will fare in Birmingham, but more gold medals shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Para-athletics: T33/34 100m final ladies, Tuesday 2 August

Birmingham 2022 features para events in a range of sports, allowing Hannah Cockroft to win the only medal missing from her collection. The wheelchair racer has won seven Paralympic and 11 world titles, as well as multiple European gold medals, but this should be her first Commonwealth triumph.

In his everyday life, Nick Brett is a humble civil servant. But in his sporting life, Brett is known – somewhat bizarrely – as the Brad Pitt of lawn bowls. At the 2020 World Indoor Championships, he threw perhaps the most famous bowl of all time with an insane shot so good it went viral worldwide.
