“Having the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham would be a great opportunity for athletes like myself and the younger generation to be inspired and find their talent in any sport. The Commonwealth Games is a huge event that’s known globally and I think bringing it to Birmingham – where there’s already world class facilities – would be great for Birmingham in the heart of the country, and in the heart of Birmingham where the Alexander Stadium is based. I’m 100% backing the bid for 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.”
