CWG 2018: Shuttlers continue India's medal rush in Gold Coast

Vikas Krishnan was the third Indian boxer to win gold.

Tucked into the program between the 3,000 meters steeplechase and the heptathlon 800 meters heats was Arnott's 100 meters sprint. It was a very hard result to take and you have to grieve a little bit for that.

After the defeat to New Zealand, fans were hoping for an improved display in the bronze medal match against England - an opposition they had just gotten the better of.

"You have delivered a truly Golden Games for the Commonwealth", Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) President Louise Martin said.

"I wish all of the girls could have "Commonwealth Games winner" on their CV", Hosking said.

"This is when I changed my mindset". "They fought, they pushed and they excelled in many areas; it was a privilege for Assistant-Chef Ben Huot and I to share these 11 days with such a spectacular group of men and women". "It's just been one of the best experiences I've ever had".

"Since we came on board, preparations for Commonwealth Games and the African Senior Championship among others have been on the front burner".

Seven presenter Johanna Griggs, a 1990 Commonwealth Games swimming bronze medallist, teed off at organisers, after viewers initially expressed frustration with the broadcaster when athletes were left out. "They made a decision not to have athletes enter the stadium".

Lauded by organisers as "inspirational" and "innovative", the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games have come to an end in a heavily-criticised closing ceremony, with Channel Seven's hosts ripping into the event's organisers live on air.

He said the calibre of the athletes has been unparalleled showcasing world record holders, sporting greats and breakthrough performances from young athletes.

The Tall Blacks need to pick themselves up from a shocking performance in their semifinal defeat against Canada yesterday if they want to leave the Gold Coast with a medal.

"We have a disability, we are different but we are athletes".

"I still think about Olympics gold but other than that I have got everything".

"But beyond medals, we got to finals in major events which we did not near in the last 10 years".

Gold Coast and Australia bid farewell to thousands of athletes, officials and visitors from overseas with a glittering and emotional ceremony.

Nigeria's Oluwatobiloba Amusan celebrates with flag after winning the athletics women's 100m hurdles final during the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games at the Carrara Stadium on the Gold Coast on April 13, 2018.

"Look, we understand many people have been disappointed by tonight's closing ceremony", Zempilas said at the conclusion of the ceremony.

"It's working, it's good, it's the right thing to do". The 20-year old athlete, a farmer's son from Panipat, received a standing ovation from the crowd.

"And it's all for the sport".
