Logo XXI Commonwealth Games - Gold Coast 2018 Queensland

The 2018 Commonwealth Games, officially known as the XXI Commonwealth Games or also known as Gold Coast 2018, is an international multi-sport event for members of the Commonwealth countries that will be held on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. The game will held between 4 to 15 April 2018.

The Commonwealth Games have been conducted by the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) every 4 years (except for 1942 and 1946 due to World War II) since the first British Empire Games were held in Hamilton, Canada in 1930. There have been many magical moments witnessed at the Commonwealth Games over the years, including the famous ‘Miracle Mile’ at the 1954 Games when England’s Roger Bannister and Australian John Landy created history by both breaking the four-minute mile in a race.

A key player in the staging of the first Commonwealth Games was sports reporter and administrator Melville Marks (Bobby) Robinson, who helped bring to reality what Commonwealth nations had been dreaming about for 3 decades. Since then, the Games have grown from an event featuring 11 countries and 400 athletes to a modern sporting spectacular that includes 70 nations and territories and over 6,600 athletes and team officials.
