The team is led by three defending Commonwealth medallists: Alysha Newman (pole vault), Christabel Nettey (long jump), recent world silver medallist Camryn Rogers, and Olympic bronze medallist Evan Dunfee. Our athletes will face competitors from 72 Commonwealth countries and battle for medals in one of the top sporting events of the year.

Team Canada will miss Andre De Grasse, Pierce LePage, Aaron Brown and Jerome Blake, who all withdrew from the Commonwealth Games on Tuesday after their success at the 2022 World Athletics Championships. 

In the athletics portion at the last Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Team Canada finished with two golds, six silvers and one bronze.
