The Commonwealth Games Association of the Isle of Man (CGA) has announced the names of the athletes who have been provisionally selected at the Tier 2 stage to represent Team Isle of Man at the 2022 Commonwealth Games being held in Birmingham, England.
Nine athletes have been selected as ‘Tier 2’ selections, across five sports.
A total of 30 athletes will represent Team Isle of Man in Birmingham. With Tier 1 and Tier 2 selections now announced, the remaining 9 athletes will be confirmed in April 2022.
President of the CGA, Basil Bielich said:
‘We are delighted to have been able to select nine additional athletes to join the twelve selected at Tier 1. This is a new process of selection which is designed to enable the chosen athletes to plan their preparation and training programme with more certainty and confidence.
‘A number of athletes have been nominated by their respective local sports bodies for consideration. The CGA and Isle of Man Sport are working closely together to give our athletes as much support as possible with their preparations for the Games. This is to ensure that the strongest possible team represents the Isle of Man in Birmingham next year.
‘Our plans for our participation in Birmingham are well underway, along with planning for our key fundraising activities such as the Queen’s Baton Relay and IOMCGA dinner which offer everyone the chance to be part of Team Isle of Man.’
