Great Scots say ‘aye’ to Sunshine Coast
Up to 300 athletes and support staff from Team Scotland will call the Sunshine Coast home in the lead-up to the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia.
The team will base their official overseas preparation camp at the Novotel Twin Waters Resort with athletes staying for up to three weeks before the Games begin on the Gold Coast on 4 April 2018.
Team Scotland Chef de Mission Jon Doig OBE said the Sunshine Coast provides a great range of facilities and the ideal environment to ensure athletes will be well prepared for the Commonwealth Games, where the team will aim to have its most successful ever overseas Games.
“The key to Scotland’s success has always been in our planning and preparation and the Team Camp has always played a vital part in developing our strong team ethos and ensuring everyone is in the best possible shape for the Games,” he said.
“We have spent considerable time with all 18 sports identifying the best possible location for their specific needs.
”For the vast majority, the facilities and environment on the Sunshine Coast and at Twin Waters, in particular, will undoubtedly provide the ideal home away from home for the athletes as they adjust to the travel, climate, culture and the unique multi-sport environment of the Commonwealth Games.
