Kenya's trend in Commonwealth Games worrying

Despite missing out in the gold medal battle against Singapore's Gao Ning, Nigeria's Aruna Quadri has said that he was satisfied with the silver medal than going for bronze at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games held in Australia.

Commonwealth Games Federation chief executive David Grevemberg said his organisation was monitoring the situation but until the missing Cameroonians broke Australian law it was a matter for them and their team officials.

But Fearnley also emphasised the success of the Games, which he said had been "the best and most inclusive Games".

"9 World Records and 83 Games Records were broken".

In related news, Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated India's contingent at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, saying that the competitors will motivate more youngsters to pursue sports.

There were other exceptions as the relay teams got $9000 and $7000 for their silver and bronze medals respectively.

Ric Birch, who was head of ceremonies for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games and the 1982 Brisbane Commonwealth Games, said: "I'm certainly surprised that Seven did not raise the issue of the athletes' entrance prior to the closing ceremony". She also gave special mention to the Yugambeh community and in particular the Indigenous Working Groups and local Yugambeh Advisory Group who contributed to and supported the delivery of the Games. "No one really communicated anything", she said. "Again, we got that wrong", he wrote. What we have witnessed on the Gold Coast has instilled incredible pride in what it means to be a Commonwealth athlete, both as a high performance competitor on the field of play, and as a champion of causes and passions off it.

An official of the college said she was suspended after they received a complaint from students on March 19. The university has no role in the exams. "We are still clueless about the details of charges", he said.

Commonwealth Games Chairman Peter Beattie acknowledged on Monday that organisers made a mistake featuring athletes in the pre-show instead of the television coverage.

"Inclusion is the Commonwealth Games future".

The Commonwealth Games were in the United Kingdom just four years ago, when Glasgow hosted, and were in England as recently as 2002 in Manchester.

"It was a rocking moment and the entire stadium roared ... the athletes were sent in and the cameras were there, they were tested in rehearsal, we saw it on the big screen. We stuffed it up and I apologize to the viewers and the athletes".

Channel Seven was aware athletes would be largely snubbed from the Commonwealth Games closing ceremony despite claiming to have been as shocked by the decision as the millions who watched it, it has emerged.

"Back in the day of Sydney 2000, Dick Ebersol of the NBC network was able to overturn the host city agreement and the IOC Charter by insisting that the athletes not be permitted to be in the stadium watching the ceremony prior to the Parade of Athletes". The action, drama., sportsmanship and excitement that has defined the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games continued right up until the last second.
