Australia top Gold Coast 2018

April 22nd, 2018

Share the dream…

6,600 men and women from 71 different nations took to Australia to compete in the 2018 Commonwealth Games and for the first time ever, at major multi-sport event, an equal amount of events for both female and male athletes took place.

Australia told the world to ‘Share the dream’ but they took the majority of the spoils themselves by topping the medal table with 80 golds and a total of 198 medals overall. England finished in second place with 45 gold medals and India third with 26. 6 nations managed to win their first ever medal at a Commonwealth Games!

It really looked like Australia did a great job of hosting, not only their largest sports event this decade but also the largest in Commonwealth Game history.

Winter success at the Paralympics

March 20th, 2018

After the success of the XXIII Olympic PyeongChang Winter Games, the 12th Paralympic Winter Games shortly followed.

With nearly 570 athletes from 49 different nations taking part in 80 events, with a total of 241 medals being handed out. The United States came out top of the medal table with a total of 36 medals, 13 of those gold. However the biggest cheer of the games was reserved for the last but one day of competition, when Sin Eui-hyun won the first winter Olympic gold for South Korea in the 7.5km seated cross-country ski race.

The games were a great success and there was no need for the initial worry about low ticket sales as over 343,000 tickets were sold. That’s 16,000 more than Sochi 4 years previous, 100,000 more than 2010 Vancouver and more than double 2006 in Torino.
