South Africa is currently fourth on the Commonwealth Games medals table with a total of 32 medals (overall positioning will be updated when it is available…).

Since readmission, South Africa has sent teams to six Commonwealth Games starting with the 1994 Games in Victoria, British Colombia. During this period they have finished fifth on the medals table on three occasions (Kuala Lumpur, 1998; Melbourne, 2006; and New Delhi, 2010).

Overall – before the 2018 edition of the Games – South Africa had won 352 medals overall with the 2002 Manchester Games being the most successful in terms of total medals. That year, South Africa won 46 medals – just one behind New Zealand on 45.

Since readmission, the country’s most successful gold medal haul was in 2014 in Glasgow, where the team won 13 gold medals.
