Commonwealth Games 2022: Jamaica's ex-GB athlete Adelle Tracey ruled out of Games

The 29-year-old switched allegiances after competing for Great Britain at the World and European Championships in June.

At the World Championships earlier this month, she raced for her new country and advanced to the 1500- and 800-meter semifinals.

She told BBC Sport, “It’s a great pity; I was looking forward to that vibe.

I received emails urging me to download the athletes’ village app since Jamaica had chosen me and my information had been transferred, but I was not included on the start list.

There was only a different process for the Games, despite the fact that we had pursued the matter nonstop and made sure that everyone received the correct information.

Earlier this year, Tracey was on a lengthy list of potential athletes for England as she awaited World Athletics’ approval of her transition to Jamaica.

On June 27, she officially switched sports nationality and was chosen for the Jamaican squad for both the World Championships and the Commonwealth Games.

In some of the most eagerly awaited events of the Games’ athletics schedule, she was scheduled to compete against longtime domestic rivals Keely Hodgkinson of England, Laura Muir, and Jemma Reekie of Scotland.

Instead, Tracey will participate in a Diamond League competition in Silesia, Poland, on August 6, the evening before the women’s 800m final in Birmingham.
