Australians love their sport. At a participation level it gels communities and improves physical fitness. At an elite level, sport provides us with role models, gives us international recognition, and supports a range of commercially successful industries. Interest in sport spans both the public and private sectors, attracting significant investment in competition, administration and infrastructure.
