Highlights of CWG 2022 Opening CeremonyThe 2022 Commonwealth Games were officially declared open after the grand opening ceremony held at Alexander Stadium in Birmingham on Thursday. The Indian team is led by Olympic medalist PV Sindhu and captain of the men’s hockey team Manpreet Singh. Neeraj Chopra was India’s designated flag bearer at the opening ceremony, but sustained an injury during the World Championships in Athletics, where he won the silver medal. He had to withdraw from CWG 2022 due to an injury. Earlier, percussionist Abraham Paddy Tetteh started at Alexander Stadium, then classical Indian singer and composer Ranjana Ghatak took the lead, and the section was meant to showcase the city’s diversity. The Games, set to be the UK’s biggest and most expensive sporting event since the 2012 London Olympics, had to deal with the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The opening ceremony will be attended by Prince Charles as the chief guest. The Queen’s Baton arrived at the Games Village in Birmingham on Wednesday, July 27. The entire opening ceremony, which is expected to last about two and a half hours, was written by British screenwriter Stephen Knight, who produced the popular crime drama Peaky Blinders.” Speaking of the CWG, athletes from over 72 countries and territories participated in the multidisciplinary event. Meanwhile, India had 66 medals in the previous edition of the Commonwealth Games held on the Gold Coast in Australia.
