South Africa is currently seventh on the Commonwealth Games medals table with a total of nine medals.

Prior to departure for the competition, Sascoc was coy about a specific “medals target” for the Games, however, President Gideon Sam said the team would be targeting a fifth place overall.

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.

Overall, without including the Gold Coast event, South Africa has won 117 gold medals, 112 silvers and 123 bronzes.
