Team England athletes have produced some of the most iconic moments in sporting history over the years.

History-makers have crossed finished lines and stormed to records wearing the St. George's cross for their country.

This St. George's Day, we're looking back at some of the greatest Team England memories that continue to inspire generations today.

Vancouver 1954 - 'The Miracle Mile'

The name Roger Bannister is synonymous with the four-minute mile.

But 1954 also saw Bannister line up next to Australia's John Landy for one of the most hotly-contested races in Commonwealth Games history.

Both men had broken four minutes in the mile early that year, with Landy taking the record in a time of three minutes and 58 seconds.

Promoted as 'the mile of the century' and later rebranded as 'the miracle mile', Landy was leading with just 90m to go before Bannister stormed past him for gold in a new Commonwealth record time of 3:58.8.

Christchurch 1974 - Precious McKenzie: The Queen's favourite athlete

It's sporting legend that Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh were late for an official engagement at the 1974 Commonwealth Games in Christchurch because she wanted to watch Precious McKenzie win his third consecutive gold medal in weightlifting.

The 'pocket rocket' had won gold at Kingston 1966 and Edinburgh 1970 before making the journey to New Zealand in search for his golden hat-trick.

McKenzie dropped down from bantamweight to flyweight for his third Games appearance and stormed to victory in front of a crowd which included the Queen herself.

Edinburgh 1982 - Steve Cram grabs a golden double

Team England legend Steve Cram clinched the middle-distance double with 800m and 1500m gold in Edinburgh.

Cram clocked a new Commonwealth Games record of 1:43.22 - a record which still stands today - in the 800m, out-sprinting Tom McKean and Peter Elliott to take the title by 15m.

Just days later, Cram was back on the track for the 1500m and triumphed once again in dominant fashion.

Melbourne 2006 - Christine Ohuruogu takes the 400m crown

Before Christine Ohuruogu took Olympic or World titles, she was Commonwealth champion for Team England.

The British record holder was just 21 when she settled into her blocks in Melbourne and knew she had to beat reigning Olympic champion Tonique Williams-Darling for gold.

Ohuruogu had already beaten the Bahamian in their semi-final and repeated the trick when it mattered with a personal best time of 50.28 seconds for a stunning victory.

Delhi 2010 - Daley's diving double

Tom Daley was just 16 when he dived to two gold medals at his maiden Commonwealth Games.

The teenager was already an Olympian but it was his 10m platform antics at Delhi that tightened his reign on the world of diving.

Daley teamed up with Max Brick for 10m synchronised gold before taking individual victory the next day, a feat that would later see him crowned BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year for the third time.

Glasgow 2014 - Claudia Fragapane takes historic quadruple

The first English woman to win four gold medals at a Commonwealth Games since 1930, Claudia Fragapane was the ultimate history-maker in Glasgow.

Fragapane competed in all four of the team events in Glasgow before qualifying top in the beam, all-around, vault and floor.

Aged just 16, the gymnast went on to win the team, all-around, vault and floor titles, with Fragapane becoming the most successful English female at a single Commonwealth Games in over 80 years.

Gold Coast 2018 - Helen Housby makes history for Team England netball

One of the most iconic moments in recent Commonwealth Games history happened in the middle of the night in England.

On Australian soil, Helen Housby took the opportunity of a lifetime to edge England to a 52-51 victory over hosts Australia and take Commonwealth Games netball gold for the first-ever time.

Never before had the final been between anyone other than Australia and New Zealand but a last-minute triumph saw a lifetime dream come true in the most dramatic fashion.

Gold Coast 2018 - Jade Jones-Hall and Joe Townsend para-triathlon gold

Jade Jones-Hall didn't even know how to swim 18 months before she took para-triathlon gold on the Gold Coast.

The sport made it's debut in 2018, with Jones-Hall powering clear to take gold and completing the first leg of a landmark Team England double.

Joe Townsend roared to victory in the men's event, the former Royal Marine completing a historic first-outing for paratriathlon at the Commonwealth Games.

Birmingham 2022 - Myles Hesson's golden final buzzer

Four years after Helen Housby's netball antics, Myles Hesson was replicating the act on the basketball court.

In the dying embers of the men's 3x3 basketball 2022 Commonwealth Games final, it was Birmingham born and bred Hesson who clinched last-gasp gold.

His overtime two-pointer secured a dramatic 17-16 victory for Team England over Australia in front of a raucous home crowd.

Birmingham 2022 - The first women's hockey crown

After 24 years of trying, the England women’s hockey team finally landed Commonwealth Games gold at Birmingham 2022.

England had played Australia in three finals before that famous 2022 win, and lost every one of them.

But on home soil at the University of Birmingham, goals from Holly Hunt and Tess Howard fired the team to a historic 2-1 win, complete with chants of 'Hockey's coming home'.
