Commonwealth Games appearances (overview)

South Africa has competed at all but eight of the 21 Commonwealth Games which have been held; from the original Games in 1930 to 1958, and from 1994.

Because of South Africa's then apartheid policy, South Africa withdrew from the British Commonwealth in 1961, but was later re-admitted in 1994.

At the 2006 Commonwealth Games, South Africa was fifth in the medal tally; with a total of 38 medals (12 Gold, 13 Silver and 13 Bronze). South Africa was sixth in the All-time tally of medals, with an overall total of 280 medals (92 Gold, 92 Silver and 96 Bronze).
