JudoScotland and Commonwealth Games Scotland Announce a Team of 11 for Birmingham 2022!

50 Days to Go: 11 Judoka Selected to Represent Scotland at Birmingham 2022

Team Scotland has marked 50 days to go to the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games with the selection announcement of 50 athletes across seven sports including badminton, boxing, judo, netball, para-powerlifting, squash and triathlon.

Gold medalllists at Glasgow 2014, Sarah Adlington and Chris Sherrington lead an exciting line-up of 11 judoka and, should either repeat that achievement in Birmingham, they would become the first athlete to win two Commonwealth Games gold medals in Judo. The remaining nine judoka will all make their debut as the sport returns to the Games programme, having not been included at Gold Coast 2018.

Sarah Adlington said “It’s a great honour to be selected to represent Scotland at any event but even more so at a Commonwealth Games, I am really excited to compete! It is also another opportunity for the public to see some world class judo. I know there will be a lot of Scottish support in the crowd and this will be great for all the Scottish athletes.”

Team Scotland Chef De Mission Elinor Middlemiss said “I am delighted to welcome another 50 athletes to Team Scotland, taking our total selected so far to 119. What a special way to mark 50 days to go to the Games.

“It is a real honour to represent Scotland and I am really pleased for the athletes who have been selected. There is a real depth of experience and potential in this squad, and I have no doubt that our more experienced members of the team will actively support those who are making their Games debut.

“The excitement for Birmingham 2022 is now really starting to build and I am really looking forward to watching our athletes in action this summer and hearing the roar of support from our fans in the stands.”

The Judo competition will take place at Coventry Arena between the 1st and 3rd of August.
