However, although Thompson-Herah was named on the team, it is understood the Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2021 sprint double champion might not travel to Birmingham as she continues to deal with injuries and fatigue after the recently concluded World Athletics Championships in Oregon.

World champion and the second-fastest woman ever over 200 meters, Shericka Jackson is set to race in that event at the Commonwealth Games 2022, which opens on Thursday, 28 July. The track and field schedule will begin on 2 August.

Also named on the team are world triple jump silver medalist Shanieka Ricketts, Stephenie Ann McPherson, and Kemba Nelson who also won silver medals in the 4x400m and 4x100m relays, as well as Olympic bronze medalist Megan Tapper, Danielle Williams, Danniel Thomas-Dodd and Natoya Goule.

On the men’s side, Olympic champion Hansle Parchment is also named on the team despite suffering a hamstring injury right before the final of the men’s 110m hurdles at the World Athletics Championships 2022 last week.

Nathon Allen and Jevaughn Powell who both were on the men’s 4x400m relay silver medal-winning team in Oregon, are also traveling to the United Kingdom.
