Welcome home our Glasgow heroes

GOLD COASTERS are being urged to show there support at the welcome home ceremony for Queensland’s Glasgow Commonwealth Games athletes. 

Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate is behind the special reception which kicks off at 8.45am on Sunday August 17 at Broadbeach Mall.

“Queensland’s athletes performed particularly well in Glasgow and the City is hosting a special event to celebrate their wonderful achievements representing the Gold Coast, Queensland and our nation,” said Cr Tate.


“Here on the Gold Coast, interest in the Glasgow Commonwealth Games was high and we were all so proud of our athletes, so the welcome home reception is a chance for our local community to come and show their pride and support.”

The reception includes a parade through Broadbeach Mall, one-on-one chats with some of the local gold medalists and an autograph session in the Oasis Shopping Centre from 10am.
