The Indian athletics contingent over the years has collected 28 medals, including 5 gold, 10 silver, and 18 bronze at the Commonwealth Games.

The Indian athletics squad for the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games will be led by the Tokyo Olympics and 2018 CWG gold medallist Neeraj Chopra.

The athletics contingent for this year also carries some other promising names apart from Neeraj Chopra. The unexpected track queen of the Gold Coast games 2018, Hima Das will be looking to repeat her astonishing performance in the Birmingham games 2022.

Joining the Javelin medal chase with Neeraj Chopra will be D.P Manu Rohit Yadav and Annu Rani - all of whom would be looking to secure their first Commonwealth Games medal.

India will be looking forward to securing podium finishes in long jump and triple jump too.

The ever-tough qualifying standard for this year's athletics participation by AFI has resulted in forming a very strong and determined athletics contingent for the upcoming Birmingham Games.
