Commonwealth Games under fire for not showing athletes entering closing ceremony

April 15, 2018, marked the end of the 21st edition of Commonwealth Games and India concluded its campaign in the sporting extravaganza on a high.

The show got a roasting not just from people who had paid top dollar to attend the event, but live on-air from Channel 7's commentators Joanna Griggs and Basil Zempilas, who addressed the confusion with their viewers. "And, to be honest, so have we".

She said that 49 athletes from RSPB participated in the CWG 2018 Games in disciplines like weightlifting, wrestling, hockey, athletics, basketball and gymnastics.

Australian media slammed the decision, noting it denied viewers the chance to see para-sport star Kurt Fearnley carrying the Australian flag into the venue.

"We're the Australian rights-holders so we can only show the pictures that are provided by the actual host broadcasters".

GC2018 was an extraordinary event, hosted in a truly spectacular location. HAHA! Massive thank you to the Commonwealth Games for having me play such a huge part in both the Opening & Closing Ceremonies in my home town - it was such a huge honour!

In Athletics, Kenya, no doubt, is a power house, but that alone can not make us stand out when other countries totally eclipse us in other disciplines.

Leones ante todo pronóstico venció a Millonarios
En el minuto 87 de partido, Ayron del Valle empató el marcador 1-1 por medio de un penalti cometido a Jair Palacios. Millonarios se mantiene con 20 puntos, mientras que Leones de Itagüí sumó 9 unidades.

Speaking to Mr Beattie as fallout from the disappointing closing ceremony continued, Koch demanded to know what went wrong.

However, this won't beat India's second-best haul of 69 medals in Manchester in 2002.

Mumbrella has contacted Jack Morton Events for comment.

GOLDOC chairman Peter Beattie has apologised for a "stuff-up" at the closing ceremony of the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games after athletes were marginalized from the television broadcast and a string of officials hogged the spotlight with lengthy speeches.

Commonwealth Games 2018 lasted for 8 days and Indian contingent routinely secured gold on an everyday basis. "They made a decision not to have athletes enter the stadium".

"At previous ceremonies athletes were herded around, they stand around, they hate it, they get bored, often they don't go", he said.

GOLDOC has admitted to being at fault in a statement today, acknowledging that its decisions did not provide the opportunity for the television audiences to share the moment. However, the number of golds plummeted from 31 to 15. "We're chronically underfunded. But it is listed as a milestone in the performance pathway and athletes keep saying these games are important". Commonwealth Games Canada is committed to hosting a Games in Canada, possibly in 2030 to mark the 100th Anniversary of the inaugural Games which were held in Hamilton, Ontario.
