Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games | St-Imier, Switzerland | 20.07.2022 One of the newest members of the Longines 2022 Commonwealth Games Team, gymnast Alice Kinsella, will enjoy the rare privilege of competing at the Games in her hometown. A native of the host city, the 21-year-old will be performing on the global stage at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. Alice has devoted herself to gymnastics since the age of three and her years of hard work have paid off: she is one of the most exciting competitors in the sport and equal to the challenges of its highest-profile events.

At home on the Commonwealth Games stage

When Alice Kinsella competes at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, she’ll be coming home in more ways than one. She was raised in Birmingham so she’s clearly no stranger to the city. But she also distinguished herself at the previous edition in 2018, when her three medals included an individual gold on the beam apparatus, a silver in the team event and a bronze in the all-around competition. Longines is thrilled that this brilliant young gymnast is part of its Commonwealth Games Team and looks forward to sharing her return to her hometown and her performance at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

A powerful podium presence

Following her success at the Commonwealth Games in 2018, Alice’s international success continued when she became the first British woman to win European gold on the beam apparatus at the European Championships in Szczecin, Poland in 2019. And as a member of Team GB, she claimed a medal in Tokyo in the summer of 2021 at the world’s most prestigious sporting competition

Alice Kinsella is looking forward to defending her Commonwealth Games title in Birmingham and in preparation for the event, has continued her rigorous training programme. Her busy schedule will also include the European and World Championships where she is poised to add to an already-incredible legacy.

Alice Kinsella: “A privilege to work alongside Longines”

Alice is thrilled to be part of the Longines 2022 Commonwealth Games Team. She says, “It’s such a privilege to work alongside Longines ahead of the Commonwealth Games in my hometown of Birmingham. This will be one of the biggest events of the year, and a fantastic opportunity to showcase all our hard work on the greatest stage.”
