The 2022 Games will be held in Birmingham, England July 27-Aug 07, 2022 and home-town favorite, Leah Kirchmann, will be there!
For the first time in its history, the Games will feature more medal events for women (135) than men (133).
Leah will be competing in the Road events and will be a strong contender in both the Time Trial and Road Race (112km). The road competitions will take place in Wolverhampton and Warwick.
“I am very excited about my nomination to Team Canada for the Commonwealth Games. It is always an honour to wear the maple leaf on my jersey!” Kirchmann said. “The technical and rolling Time Trial suits my strengths as a rider, so I hope to target a top result in the event. I think we also have a strong team with a lot of cards to play in the Road Race, so I will be looking to help Canada target a medal performance in the event.”
