Controversy

On 26 May 2022, Northern Irish gymnast and reigning Commonwealth Games champion on pommel horse, Rhys McClenaghan, announced on Twitter that he and his teammates, Eamon Montgomery and Ewan McAteer, would not be allowed by the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) to compete at the 2022 Commonwealth Games due to them representing Ireland in international competition where Northern Ireland does not compete.[6] The FIG stated that Irish gymnasts competing for Northern Ireland would be "a violation of the FIG Statutes and rules"[7] and recommended that the athletes concerned change their FIG license nationality (in effect, switch to a British licence) if they wished to regain eligibility. The Northern Ireland Commonwealth Games Council accused the FIG of "completely disregarding" the 1998 Good Friday Agreement which states that people from Northern Ireland can consider themselves British, Irish, or both; at the time, no other ASOIF member federation associated with the Commonwealth Games had adopted the FIG's stance.[8]

On 27 June the decision was overturned and the three Northern Irish gymnasts were permitted to compete at the Commonwealth Games for Northern Ireland while still representing the island of Ireland at other international competitions.[9]
