PM Modi hails India's performance at Gold Coast CWG

Gaurav Solanki boxer Joh Griggs' fury: shock over TV outburst
Domingo Copeland | 16 April, 2018, 12:01

Despite failing to win the gold medal battle against Singapore's Gao Ning, Nigeria's Aruna Quadri has described his silver medal as a just reward for his efforts at the just concluded Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games held in Australia.

Griggs: I'm sorry you're being way too polite. We have empowered and encouraged young girls to pursue sports, ' she said. I'm furious. Actually wrecking a tradition that is so important.

It was a mistake not to include the athletes coming out into the stadium.

"Their life stories illustrate the power of dedication and a never-say-die attitude that made them overcome countless hurdles to attain the heights of success they did at the CWG", he said.

"It hasn't really lived up to expectations and I've got to say it's about the only thing they got wrong, but they did get it wrong tonight". While Canadian officials came into the Gold Coast with a stated goal of 100 medal wins from their athletes, their real aim was to use this event as a stepping stone towards Tokyo. "They are a way for us to come together and share what we have in common". We weren't allowed to put it in the ceremony.

The Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Anne Underwood, accepted the movement's flag ahead of their hosting of the next version of the Games in 2022 and their segment of the closing ceremony reflected the diversity of the industrial British city.

Instead, Seven shared footage shot earlier on Sunday night of the athletes in the stadium, including Fearnley.

Organizing committee chairman Beattie apologized on Monday in the face of a barrage of criticism, saying "we got it wrong".

With the help of the venue photo team we gained access to the roof of a hotel across the road, giving the best vantage point possible over the stadium on the beach and waited for the sun to set.

It wasn't just the 63 Aussie para-athletes swooping on 15 golds that elevated the goodwill but competitors like blind para-sprinter Ananias Shikongo, who took inclusion to another level as Namibia's flag-bearer at the opening ceremony.

The 2018 Commonwealth Games provided many memorable moments over the past 11 days.

Mr Beattie said people were understandably angry over the closing ceremony coverage, and ultimately the buck stopped with him. Here are some of the bright stars to emerge from Gold Coast. "My father and mother have helped me the most so this gold medal is for them", Vikas said.

Kenyan athletes missed out on medals in the final event of the athletics calendar, after performing dismally in the men's and women's marathon.
