Today we mark International Women’s Day (IWD) by celebrating female athletes who inspire and empower young women in sport.
Since the first Commonwealth Games in 1930, when women competed in just seven medal events, through to Glasgow 2014, where we saw the highest ever percentage of medal events for women (48.5%), much has progressed for women competing at the Games.
This progression will continue at Gold Coast 2018 (GC2018). In just 27 days history will be made, when for the first time in a multi-sport Games, there will be an equal number of opportunities for men and women to earn medals.
