England is in Northern Europe and is bounded by Scotland, Wales, the North Sea, the Atlantic Ocean and the English Channel.
Traditionally one of the powerhouses of Commonwealth sport, England have appeared in all of the Commonwealth Games ever since they were held in 1930 at which they won 61 medals. They currently rank second to Australia on the all time medal winners list. At the 2010 Games in Delhi they won 37 gold medals, 60 silver and 45 bronze. England has also taken part in each edition of the Commonwealth Youth Games since its inception in 2000.
England have hosted the Games on two occasions, in London during 1934 and in 2002 in the North West region of England and the city of Manchester.
The Commonwealth Games and the Commonwealth Youth Games are the only multi sport events where England competes as a nation and responsibility for organising their participation rests with Commonwealth Games England.
