The best of the year.
We’ve covered a ton of news in 2018, but the most important thing is that we’ve put the content together into one big place.
We know you’re going to enjoy reading this article, and we hope you do too.
Here’s what’s happened so far: September 20 – The Great North Run, and the world’s fastest men’s marathon, has been officially declared as the world record-breaking event by the International Association of Athletics Federations.
It’s been running since 1681 and is the fastest in the world.
The previous record was held by the course at the 2012 London Marathon.
The world record for men was held for two years by Mark Renshaw in 2000 and was broken by Canadian marathoner Andrew Loughlin in 2017.
We’re looking forward to seeing more world records in 2018.
September 21 – The world’s longest-running swimmer, Ryan Lochte, broke a world record at the Rio Olympics by swimming the longest distance ever in a total of 2,622m, a distance that was previously only reached by men in 2020.

This was the highest level of participation recorded by the Australian Olympic Committee since 1998.

September 28 – Australia is one of the fastest growing nations in the worlds with a growth rate of 2.4 per cent last year.
Our economy is booming and the Commonwealth Government has invested heavily in infrastructure in order to ensure that the country is one to watch for the next few years.
The Government also committed $4.4 billion towards providing jobs in the community through the Australia Stronger Initiative, which aims to build on the strong foundation of the Rio 2020 Games.
September 29 – Australia has announced it is taking a further step to boost its infrastructure investment by increasing its share of the global supply chain for building, manufacturing and supplying equipment.

October 1 – The first of three major international sporting events that Australia will host is the Commonwealth Games.
The Commonwealth Games is a joint Olympic and Commonwealth Games event that takes place in Melbourne in 2018 and will be hosted by Australia.
There will be four games across all sports, with each event featuring a different country.
It will take place in 2020, 2022, 2024 and 2026.
The 2020 and 2024 Games are expected to be the largest sporting events in the Commonwealth’s history, with over 300,000 spectators expected.
The event will be held at the Olympic Park in Melbourne.
It is a unique event in that it will not be held in Australia.
It also means that the Commonwealth is the first country to host an Olympic Games.
This means that all sporting events can be played in the city where they take place, with Melbourne in the centre of the country.
The Games will feature a total number of 28 teams from Australia, New Zealand, Australia, China, South Africa, Japan, South Korea, India, Japan and South Africa.
We look forward to sharing more on the Commonwealth games in the coming weeks.
