With less than one year to go until the 21st Commonwealth Games on Australia’s Gold Coast, Giaan Rooney checks in on preparations for the Games and asks, “In 12 months, will everything turn to gold?”
This special production by Australia’s Commonwealth Games and Olympic Games Network, Channel Seven, is set against the dramatically changing Gold Coast backdrop.
Rooney catches up with some of Australia’s most outstanding and well credentialed athletes ahead of the Games, including Cameron McEvoy, Kurt Fearnley, Cate and Bronte Campbell and the new mum Laura Geitz. A Commonwealth and Olympic gold medallist herself, Giaan also interviews those that have been there before– Games legends Hayley Lewis, Sam Riley, Raelene Boyle and Robert de Castella as well as some of the key figures involved in staging the Games.
