1989

  • The Islamic Republic of Pakistan joined the Commonwealth in 1947 and re-entered it again in 1989 after leaving the fold in 1972.

Lying North of the Tropic of Cancer and west of India, Pakistan made its debut in the 1954 Games (6 medals) and was ever present up to and including the 1970 Games in Edinburgh (9 medals).

  • After a 20 year absence Pakistan returned to the Games Family in 1990 by competing in Auckland and since then they have enjoyed uninterrupted participation ever since. At the 2010 Games in Delhi they won 5 medals including 2 gold medals in the wrestling.

  • The Pakistan National Olympic Committee is responsible for the country's participation in the Commonwealth Games and Commonwealth Youth Games.
