21st Commonwealth Games concludes with new medal record for Sri Lanka

21st Commonwealth Games concludes with new medal record for Sri Lanka

During the entire blunder, the marching athletes, including the flag-bearers of various countries, were seen leaving the stadium while the closing speeches were still in progress.

The part of the closing ceremony that organisers chose to broadcast included performances from local musicians including Amy Shark, Guy Sebastian, Yothu Yindi, Kate Cebrano and Dami Im.

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

"If NBC could change the IOC's policies, I'm sure that Seven could have prevailed upon the GC2018 Organising Committee and the host broadcaster". The pre-show meant that it would only be shown on the big screens within the stadium. "Their life stories illustrate the power of dedication and a never-say-die attitude that made them overcome countless hurdles to attain the heights of success they did at the CWG", the PM added. "I am sorry, and if I get a chance, I will apologise to kurt this morning".

"We're in the process of talking about these things and yes, we want to take the Commonwealth slightly further", she said, taking inspiration from swimming's Duel, which pitted the United States against Australia or Europe.

Mr Beattie also admitted to media that people were understandably angry over the closing ceremony coverage, and ultimately the buck stopped with him.

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.

"Epic flop" is more appropriate tbh.

Most importantly, it is a wake up call for all the senior pros. that they no longer can take their places in the national team for granted, as these youngsters are snapping at their heels and how.

Beattie also conceded speeches went for too long.

Speaking on Sunrise, Peter Beattie copped to the ill-fated decision not to film athletes entering the closing ceremony, which lead to viewers and Channel 7's own commentators savaging the event.

"At the end of the day, we appoint an agency to run the day to day operations of the Games", Palaszczuk told reporters.

"Our decision to bring them in early was right, but what we should have done though is have them parade as well".

Brandt said that shouldn't be a consideration given athletes have already competed. Expectedly, South Africa was the highest placed African team as they finished in the sixth position with a total haul of 37 medals comprising 13 gold, 11 silver and 13 bronze medals.

"We were looking forward to being part of the Closing Ceremony and being recognized for what we had done in the games".

Griggs said her network was not at fault, saying they could only use the pictures provided by the Commonwealth Games host broadcasters.
