The International Children’s Games was hosted in Coventry in 2022 and was a huge success with more than 70 cities worldwide attending and competing. This year the Games is due to take place in Daegu, South Korea. After Team Coventry’s success last year, there will be a team of 18 athletes from the city heading over to compete in up to three sports of our choice. 

Team Coventry placed second overall with 25 medals including gold, silver and bronze.
