Twelve medals for Team NI in Commonwealth Games

"Kurt has definitely been a big part of paving the way for what para-sports have become in Australia and he's been inspiring for me and all those other strong athletes who have overcome hurdles", Patterson, 19, said. "We got that wrong", &rdquo. Now, I'damn sorry, if I receive an opportunity I'll apologize to Kurt (Fearnley) that morning.

He told Sunrise their decision to not show the athletes walking through the stadium was made based on the competitor's welfare.

They expressed their disappointment over the decision to leave the athletes' entrance out of the broadcast, saying it was not the decision of the network.

There was also concern after a large portion of the athletes and spectators left the ceremony before it had finished, leaving the stadium looking a little bare. However, having them come into the stadium in the pre-show meant the TV audience were not able to see the athletes enter the stadium, alongside flag bearers.

"We can only show the pictures that are provided by the actual host broadcasters", Griggs told Seven on Sunday.

Donegal meat producer among first to enter the Chinese beef market
Michael Creed says after years of hard work, the Chinese authorities will this week confirm access for Irish beef exports. He added that China is already Ireland's second biggest market globally for dairy exports and for pork exports.

It was not just the men who stood on the top of the podium, but where they were in cruise control, a makeshift women's 4x100m team had a tougher time on the way to gold.

Fearnley says he's loved every minute of every Games he's competed in. I did just that, the guys did what they needed to do. They did see that moment.

"We missed out on all of that".

Large sections of seating were empty, while a number of athletes slipped away to the bar before the ceremony had reached its halfway point.

The ceremony has been described as lacking star power, even with sprinting legend Usain Bolt hitting the DJ decks and dancing with mascot Borobi during the spectacle.
