“We are delighted that Birmingham has been awarded as the nomination to go forward for the 2022 Commonwealth Games, we are still celebrating at the moment. It’s going to be incredible, and that’s part of the fun and excitement about these Games. I’m just disappointed that I never had the opportunity to compete in one of the major Games in my own city Birmingham. For the up and coming athletes this will be an extraordinary time for them to look forward to and I’m sure many of them will come from Birchfield Harriers. We as a club will be doing our very best to make sure we produce not only just athletes attending the Games but medal winners.”
