Commonwealth Games 2018 closing ceremony is being ripped to shreds

Australia blitzed the medal tally with 80 gold, matching its haul in 1998 to make it the country's fourth most successful Commonwealth Games behind Victoria, Canada (87 gold, 1994), Melbourne (84, 2006) and Manchester (82, 2002).

But again organisers said that on Sunday afternoon, during a run-through of the performance, "the host broadcaster rehearsed cameras as part of the rehearsal" and that "rights holders were allowed to view the rehearsal".

There were reports many began leaving the venue less than an hour into the event.

The next edition of the Commonwealth Games in 2022, would be hosted in Birmingham, England, from July 27 to August 7.

While the Closing Ceremony and the Games were broadcast on Channel Seven, Griggs said that it wasn't the network's decision not to air athletes entering the village.

Social media users also criticised the opening ceremony for being too long and featuring too many speeches. I was part of that and I acknowledge it. Organizing committee chairman Beattie apologized on Monday in the face of a barrage of criticism, saying "we got it wrong".

"It is very simple".

'I have spoken, I have communicated sufficiently on this and the issue is now in the hands of the Australian Government, especially the Australian police.

"We wanted athletes to be part of and enjoy the closing ceremony". Yes, we did get it wrong. "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", stated PM Modi in an official release.

"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".

'The buck stops with me. Now, I'm sorry, if I get a chance I'll apologise to Kurt (Fearnley) this morning.

Simmone Bernetzke said she was completely surprised when a friend told her the athletes arriving to the stadium was not shown on screen. Twitter is where live sport happens, and through the games, fans on the platform supported the Indian athletes in real-time.

In fact, viewers didn't really see any athletes in the broadcast of the closing ceremony, and they were pretty mad about it.

"The other thing there were too many speeches".

Amber Pitty said ticket prices may have been to blame. "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".

George Wilson provided a less than ringing endorsement for the ceremony, calling it "not bad".

Griggs in particular was visibly furious, making a point of sharpening her criticism when she felt Zempilas was holding back.
