Excitement is mounting here on the Gold Coast as well as around the globe as we fast approach the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Much of the infrastructure required to host the games has now been completed, including the mammoth Games Village.
The variety of sports that will be represented is incredible. Many of the disciplines such as athletics, cycling, gymnastics, swimming and weightlifting you would be expecting. Others like badminton, beach volleyball, lawn bowls, netball and wrestling perhaps not so much. The Commonwealth Games are sure to be a fantastic opportunity to introduce yourself to, and possibly experience live as a spectator, many sports you otherwise might not familiarise yourself with. Over the next couple of months several keystone dates will be reached and big announcements made. In October the Queen’s Baton Relay Bearer will be revealed. December will see the 100 days to go milestone and the arrival of the Queen’s Baton Relay on Australian shores.
n January details of road changes and access around venues, waterways and celebration zones will be released to the community. Early in April 2018 the Queen’s Baton Relay will arrive to much fanfare and celebration on the Gold Coast, just a few days before thousands gather for the Opening Ceremony to the Commonwealth Games on the 4th.
