Inspiring Games

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) was the biggest sporting event Australia has hosted this decade. Through 11 days of intense sporting competition, broadcast to over 1.5 billion worldwide, GC2018 will inspire communities across Queensland, Australia and the Commonwealth to get involved and unite on issues of importance.

GC2018 will see the largest integrated para-sports program in Commonwealth Games' history, with more than 300 athletes expected to compete in 38 events, including the marathon and para-triathlon.

For the first time in the history of a major multi-sport Games, there will be an equal number of medal events for men and women.

GC2018 was bigger than the event itself; it is a platform to unite communities, inspiring us all to raise the bar on social equality.
