Commonwealth Games Update 2018

DID you KNOW…

Mayor Jamieson said the Sunshine Coast would host a team up to 50 athletes and officials from Niue, located between Samoa, Tonga and the Cook Islands. “This is a fantastic way our community can assist a team of athletes from a small country who’ve never had the luxury of a training base to prepare for a Commonwealth Games,” the Mayor said.

“Niue is yet to win a Commonwealth Games medal, but I hope the Sunshine Coast’s world-famous hospitality will change that.       

“The Sunshine Coast is already set to enjoy significant economic benefits from having hundreds of athletes and officials from Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man staying here in the lead-up to the 2018 Commonwealth Games.”
