To mark the official 10-year countdown to the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Health and Wellbeing Queensland shared the excitement at the Green and Gold Runway community sports day on Saturday 23 July at South Bank Parklands.
The event celebrated the start of a decade of opportunities for Queenslanders to move more in the spirit of the games and enjoy the benefits of physical activity and wellbeing.
Dozens of Olympic and Paralympic sports were on show including hockey, handball, judo, fencing, volleyball, soccer, BMX, laser shooting, and wheelchair rugby. Community members were invited to have a go and try new sports that could potentially inspire them to become one of the state’s next sporting champions.
Olympic and Paralympic athletes like 5-time Olympian Natalie Cook OAM OLY (pictured above with Brisbane locals Oscar and Isla) were on the ground to meet with visitors and display some of their past medals.
Brisbane 2032 is set to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for all Queenslanders and we encourage people of all ages and fitness levels in every community across the state to have a go at boosting their physical activity over the next 10 years, and beyond.
