There was lots of talk about how it was a 1,000 days till the games.
Interesting, as the official games website gives the 1,000 days starting on this Thursday, July 9, 2015, with a great big counter on the home page.
In spite of this perhaps understandable over enthusiasm from the media, there is a lot that will be happening in these next 1,000 and 3 days, with a full list of media events detailed on the official site here: News and Media.
Lots of information there, such as:
- A full list of their media releases – did you know that the search for the GC2018 Mascot began on 30 Jun 2015?
- The GC2018 emblem features fluid representations of a gymnast, a hurdler and a swimmer.
- It will be the largest sporting event to be staged in Australia this decade, and the largest the Gold Coast has ever hosted.
