Gold Coast to host the Commonwealth Games

Monday, November 21st, 2011

So it was just announced just over a week ago that the beautiful Gold Coast will play host to the Commonwealth Games in 2018!
It was the announcement everyone on the Gold Coast had been waiting for, a Commonwealth Games right here in our sporting hub how very fitting!!
It is so exciting to hear that our amazing city above all other cities around the world will have the honours of hosting the Games.
I have trained here for the last 10 years and seen this bubbly coastal city grow every year into a vibrant fun happy go lucky and welcoming sporting arena!
With athletes like myself and many others from all over the world coming here to be a part of the action!
There are a plethora or reasons our city will showcase Australia so well and allow the world to see just why this is the place to visit!
After natural diasters like the floods last year in Brisbane, Gold Coast certainly took a blow to the economy, even though the floods were an hour north of us!
Now in the next 7 years its time for us to shine with amazing talent right here on our doorstep Emma Snowsill, Sally Mclellan, Sam Stosur and many more sporting icons who hail from this great city.
I am sure we will do Australia proud and definately create something everyone will remember!
I am really looking forward to helping support this event and excited about the sporting future of the Gold Coast!
Ok I better go I’m off to training!!
