We welcome Karen's contribution on the Board.

Shooting and Archery have rejoined the 2022 program. The 2022 Commonwealth Shooting & Archery Championships will be held in Chandigarh, India. The events will be recognised as two separately organised and funded Commonwealth Sport championships. There will be two individual medal tables, one for Chandigarh 2022 and one for Birmingham 2022. Chandigarh 2022 will present Commonwealth Archery and Shooting Championships medals and produce a medal table at the end of the event. Six months later, the 2022 Commonwealth Games will be held in Birmingham with Commonwealth Games medals being awarded. One week following the Closing Ceremony of B2022, the CGF shall issue a medal table that includes results from Chandigarh 2022, as a further and final legitimate ranking of competing nations and territories from the respective competitions.

Last time archery was in the Commonwealth games in 2010 – Australia won Gold
