The Games on the Gold Coast created history for major multi-sport events when they offered an equal number of medal opportunity for men and women.

There were additions made to women’s events and categories across Weightlifting, Boxing and Track Cycling.

There was only one addition to the weightlifting with the women's +90kg category coming in and the track cycling seeing women's Keirin, Team Sprint and Team Pursuit added.

In boxing, history was also made when the three new events of 45–48 kg, 54–57 kg and +75 kg were announced. 

It was the most medal events women's boxing had seen at a Commonwealth or Olympic Games.

It's been a long journey for the inclusion of women in sport at the Commonwealth Games with the first games in 1930, having just seven women competing in medal events. 

The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) is hoping the change at the 2018 edition of the Games will lead to Birmingham in 2022 having a 50/50 representation split for men and women.


These are in no particular order, The Women's Game just wants to bring you some of the best moments from 2018.
