India placed 3rd with 66 medals at 21st Commonwealth Games

Mary Kom to be India's Flagbearer at CWG 2018 Closing Ceremony

There Was some controversy around the ceremony, as organisers made a decision to bring in many athletes - including the 474 strong Australian team - before the broadcast of the event started.

It comes after the end to the Games was panned by viewers and Channel Seven host Johanna Griggs live on-air after the network copped criticism for not showing the athletes entering the stadium - including flag bearer Kurt Fearnley.

"Look, we understand many people have been disappointed by tonight's Closing Ceremony", Zempilas told viewers. "To be perfectly honest, Jo, so have we".

"They're actually wrecking a tradition that is so important and part of the Commonwealth Games", Griggs said, live on air.

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. Did we stuff it up? So, when the TV broadcast actually commenced, the march was over and the athletes had left the stadium.

Sunrise's David Koch called Mr Beattie out over the excuse of considering the "welfare of athletes", with previous closing ceremonies always featuring the athletes. "We just need to boost the profile of the Paralympics and get that showcased around the world a bit more".

Performances from local musicians including Amy Shark, Guy Sebastian, Yothu Yindi, Kate Cebrano and Dami Im were included in the broadcast. "I congratulate all those athletes who are bringing back medals", Modi said in a statement.

The United States , Britain, and France launched air strikes against Syrian government facilities on April 14 in response. Moscow immediately denied the charge and blamed delays on retaliatory US-led missile strikes on Syria at the weekend.

"Whoever made that decision not to allow those athletes to march in should hang their heads in shame". I thank you very much for making us proud.

Commonwealth Games organisers slammed for closing ceremony.

"I'm furious", she said.

Athletes have also spoken out about their lacking involvement in the ceremony. I've never seen the stadium so empty. They were way too long tonight. He also said he wasn't interested in blaming anyone else for the mistake.

"You can have a blame game from now until eternity but the reality is, I'm chairman of the organising committee, the buck stops with us".

Fans were left fuming after organisers decided not to show Kurt Fearnley carrying the Australian flag into the closing ceremony, and here's the moment you weren't shown.

The 21 Commonwealth Games will witness Mary Kom as India's flag-bearer as bagged a Gold Medal by beating Northern Ireland's Kristina O'Hara in the light flyweight (48kg). "These Games have changed the conversation; changed the way we think about the Commonwealth, about the city of Gold Coast, about Queensland, about what it means to be a Commonwealth citizen and that's the start of a legacy", Grevemberg said. With a huge team (720 athletes), the home crowds, home venue familiarity, and government investment in sport (more than double Canada - $415M to our $207M), it was expected that the Australians would dominate at the Games.
