The IWG World Conference for Women and Sport finished today with a bang!Sunday, 23 May, 2010
The IWG World Conference galla dinner was held last night overlooking the stunning Cockle Bay at Darling Harbour. Olympic Swimming Gold Medalist Libby Trickett was the bell of the ball on the dance floor while her Q & A time was very entertaining. All of the ambassadors present got their chance to thank the official sponsors of the night and explain why they are honoured to be an ambassador of the conference.
This morning around 700 delegates from all over the world were bussed from Sydney's Darling Harbour out to Homebush Bay's Acer Arena for the closing ceremony this morning. Johanna Adriaanse announced the legacy of the 'Sydney Scoreboard' - an online measurement tool that will chart the number of women on sports boards globally.
Following lunch, those women who didn't have to catch flights commuted across to the Athletics centre where they were given the chance to experience 10 Australian sports and indigenous activies all afternoon.
Allison and Assmaah MC'd the 5th IWG Women's Sport Showcase in the ocasionally drizzly weather. The delegates had 20 minutes at each activity before rotating after the golden bell rang. Representatives from the Australian Women's Rugby 'Wallabies' team, Australian Wheelchair basketball team, and Lidia La Riviere and representatives from the sport of Akido where among many women representing their sports.
Allison said, "This Showcase was a fantastic chance for our international guests to meet successful Australian sports women and try some of our great sports such as Cricket and Rugby. All of the women had a wonderful time laughing and taking away experiences that will last a lifetime."
The Showcase conluded the 5th IWG World Conference for Women and sport as the women boarded the busses at 4:30pm to go back to their contries, hopefully better educated, inspired and ready to apply what they learnt here in Sydney.
