The Commonwealth Games is the highest level competition in which an Isle of Man athlete can compete wearing the Isle of Man vest, and Isle of Man Athletics works alongside the Isle of Man Commonwealth Games Association (IOMCGA) to ensure Isle of Man athletes have the chance to represent their nation and compete in the Games.

Selection for Team Isle of Man in Birmingham 2022 will be subject to rigorous standards.

GB Selection (at full senior level)

Here is the full selection document including the qualifying standards for Birmingham 2022.

Please note:

Achieving the standard is not a guarantee of selection. Standards serve as a useful guide to both Isle of Man Athletics and the IOMCGA section committee that an athlete may be considered for selection.

Athletes will need to show a consistency of form above the standards outlined. Due to the competition for positions on the Isle of Man team it is unlikely athletes will be selected if they only achieve a single standard – this includes time/distance standards.

All timings, wind speed and distance measurements should be validated by UKA qualified officials preferably using electronic measuring devices.

Standards should be achieved in high level competition where possible. (National UK Championships or international events will be given greater consideration).
