Kenya's trend in Commonwealth Games worrying

Cameron Pilley now has three Commonwealth Games gold medals to his name Cameron Pilley now has three Commonwealth Games gold medals to his name

During the entire blunder, the marching athletes, including the flag-bearers of various countries, were seen leaving the stadium while the closing speeches were still in progress.

The former athlete took aim at ABC journalist Tracey Holmes, denying claims in an article by her that suggested Channel Seven was aware of the plan to snub athletes, despite the network claiming it was shocked by the decision.

"If NBC could change the IOC's policies, I'm sure that Seven could have prevailed upon the GC2018 Organising Committee and the host broadcaster".

Games organising committee chairman Peter Beattie said as things stood, none of the athletes had breached Australian law.

The XXI Commonwealth Games has come to a close with a glittering closing ceremony on Sunday night. However, having them come in to the stadium in the pre-show meant the TV audience were not able to see the athletes enter the stadium. Of course. We got it wrong.

"The people who are angry are justified". Indian table tennis also got its next star in Manika Batra, who also went on to win the women's singles title.

The Indian campaign marked several firsts as well, the notable being the maiden triumph registered in the mixed team event of badminton, the golden double in table tennis team events - which marked the end of Singapore's long reign at the top.

"I hope India's success at 2018 Commonwealth Games motivates more youngsters to pursue sports and creates larger awareness on the importance of fitness in everyone's lives", he said, adding: "On our part, we in the Government are doing everything possible to strengthen the FitIndia movement".

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, who actually spoke at the closing ceremony, also criticised the organisers on Monday.

United States agency Jack Morton, which has offices in Sydney, was paid a whopping $46 million for its work on the Gold Coast, The Daily Telegraph reports.

"Whoever was responsible for making that decision (not incorporating athletes march in to the televised ceremony) should hang their head in shame", she said.

Jack Morton's managing director, Helen Graney, said the company has worked alongside GOLDOC to develop "creative elements" of the Opening and Closing ceremonies. Considering the way the 2018 Commonwealth Games (CWG 2018) were dominated by Australia - which ended with 198 medals - four less than the combined tally of the next two (England 136 and India 66), the question will continue to be asked in the near future.

"It was a little disappointing with the athletes being brought in before the actual ceremony began", Brandt said on Australian Television on Monday. "We were privileged to have the indigenous peoples of 15 different countries with us on the Gold Coast, and we now look forward to taking this important conversation concerning first nation's peoples' rights to other parts of our family of nations as we continue to champion Commonwealth sport as a force for good in the modern world".

The host broadcaster of the CWG, NEP Group, also released a social media post saying it was "disappointed".
