India end third best CWG show with six medals on final day

Carrara stadium Gold Coastt

IndianOil Chairman, Mr. Sanjiv Singh congratulated the IndianOil players for their performance in the Commonwealth Games, he said, "Our sportspersons have undoubtedly shown commendable determination, grit and ambition for achievement, and this was instrumental in their success. We missed out on that, and I tell you, they've been repaid - there's no athletes in here, and I've never seen a stadium so empty half way through a ceremony".

The fans were disappointed the Commonwealth Games closing ceremony wasn't about the athletes and so were Jo Griggs and Basil Zempilas. "They made a decision not to have athletes enter the stadium", Griggs said on Seven on Sunday. Should (athletes) have been a part of the actual ceremony that was broadcast? 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. Dronacharya awardee, athletics Mr. Nagapuri Ramesh said, "This edition of CWG was a mix of experienced and young (freshers) participants. If we can get such results in our first worldwide appearance, it means we can do more", he said. This time, it's because they...forgot to include the athletes in last night's closing ceremony. We got that wrong. But I just wish we could have had that moment.

This is a clear distinction from the past competitions where settlement for entitlements was mostly an issue as they were either delayed or below the agreed figure, which may sometimes lead to protests from the aggravated athletes. I'm furious - [it's] actually wrecking a tradition that is so important. "Yes, we'll look at that, we're never
content".

With other nations failing to catch up with Australia, and with the standard in most sports - except in swimming where Australia eclipsed its own world record in women's 4x100m freestyle relay - way below world standard, such questions are justified. Way too long. Dare I say a little self indulgent.

Now back in the worldwide fold as the Boxing Federation of India, its president Ajay Singh said at the Gold Coast: "Last year a new federation took over and we are trying to ensure that we hold championships in India and have our boxers participate in all global championships. Again, we got that wrong", he tweeted. The athletes' performance must have surely grabbed the attention of the corporate sponsors too. These are the factors which will confirm whether we have done better here or not.
