Event description

Description

City of Gold Coast Libraries presents 2018 Inside Scoop - seven exclusive events taking you behind the scenes of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, bringing you the inside scoop from the people in the know.

It's a unique chance to get the lowdown on our city’s preparations to host its biggest ever international event – and Australia’s biggest since the Sydney 2000 Olympics.

In our sixth 2018 Inside Scoop event, Olympic Gold medalist, Duncan Free and Professor David Thiel from Griffith University's School of Engineering provide an insight into the life of a competing athlete, as they countdown to GC2018.

Retired professional athlete, Duncan Free, explores the life of an elite athlete two months out from a major competition. Professor David Thiel discusses the science and engineering behind the process of monitoring an athletes' progress in their preparations to compete.

2018 Inside Scoop runs to March 2018 at City Libraries, ahead of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. The series will bring you a wealth of behind the scenes insight into the operations of GC2018 straight from the key people organising the Games and academics looking at the impacts on our city. From the athletes’ preparations to what they can expect at the Games Village, to building the venues and managing the world’s media, find out how the Games will run, and its long-term benefits for our city.
