History! Birmingham 2022 NZ's most golden games on record

August 8, 2022
Day 10 medal tally

Birmingham 2022 is officially New Zealand's most golden Commonwealth Games.


Aaron Gate's sensational victory in the men's road road - his fourth gold in total this campaign - and Joelle King and Paul Coll's squash mixed double's triumph lifted New Zealand to 19 golds, two more than the previous best from Auckland 1990.

There's a decent chance of more as well, when King attempts to add a second gold when she teams up with Amanda Landers-Murphy in the women's squash doubles on Monday evening.

NZ also has 12 silver and 17 bronze.
