Steve Moneghetti: Greater Together


Our Australian Team for Gold Coast 2018 is now confirmed.

A team of 710 including 473 athletes.

Selection on an Australian Commonwealth Games Team is an incredible honour. Whether it is the first time – or the seventh time like in the case of shooting’s Bruce Quick.

So much hard work has gone into being one of the 710 team members whether they be athlete, coach or support staff.

Success on the Gold Coast will be a team effort. One of the themes for the Australian Team for Gold Coast 2018 is ‘Greater Together’.

Greater Together is standing alongside Australian athletes from 20 different sports.  It is competing on home soil as part of the biggest Australian Commonwealth Games Team in history.

Greater Together is Commonwealth Games Australia working closely with the AIS, the Australian Paralympic Committee and other key partners to give the Team every chance to perform at their best.

Greater Together is able bodied and para-athletes competing side by side.

It is embracing the importance of every role within the 710 strong Team.

Greater Together is about celebrating all those family, friends and loved ones who have been part of the journey to Gold Coast 2018.

It is about being proud that our team represents the millions of Australians cheering from the stands and watching our athletes strive for success on TV.

In just 14 days it all begins…Bring on Gold Coast 2018.
