Sadly, in this case, it's highly unlikely you can seek a refund for the closing ceremony because of the terms and conditions set out by the Games on their website under section 60 and unless the event was cancelled, re-scheduled or significantly re-located, there's little chance of recourse.

3,000 Meters World Champion Conselius Kipruto also won Gold, previously won by Jonathan Ndiku in 2014, with Elijah Manango'i defending Kenya's Gold in the 1,500 meters race, won by James Magut in Glasgow, while Wycliffe Kinyamal won Gold in the 800 meters race, previously won by Botswana's Nigel Amos in the last edition of the games.

Those that choose to attend have enjoyed an electrifying experience they will remember for the rest of their lives.
