Niue made its debut in the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester competing in athletics, boxing, rugby and shooting.

A notable competitor for Niue at the Commonwealth Games is the nation’s Premier, Dalton Tagelagi. He has competed in three consecutive Games (2014-2022) as part of Niue’s bowls team.

In 2022, Niue won its first-ever medal at the Commonwealth Games, thanks to Boxer Duken Tutakitoa-Williams.
