The 2022 Commonwealth Games got underway on Friday following an incredible opening ceremony the previous night, with Birmingham hosting the multi-sport competition between July 28th and August 8th.
Unlike the Olympics, there will be no Team GB taking part, and athletes from the UK will instead represent their home nations of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
Each country, along with the other 68 participating nations, will hope to hear their national anthem played as often as possible as their medal hopefuls stand atop the podium with their flag proudly on display.
Here is how the current medal table look as things stand:
