PM Modi hails Indian team's success at 2018 Commonwealth Games

Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu in action on Sunday

Nigeria's Oluwatobiloba Amusan celebrates with flag after winning the athletics women's 100m hurdles final during the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games at the Carrara Stadium on the Gold Coast on April 13, 2018.

The ceremony has been slammed for snubbing the athletes and denying them the recognition for their achievements during the 11 days of competition.

A statement said testimony from an Australia Sports Anti-Doping Authority investigator was "credible", and cast doubt on comments from the two athletes.

"When I decide something with my head and heart than even my husband can not stop me".

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. "But I think at this point at the Games, standing around really isn't the biggest concern given all the athletes had taken part in their events and they've competed".

"It was a shame that the flag-bearer wasn't recognised".

"Should they have been part of the actual ceremony that was broadcast?"

"We missed out on all of that".

It wasn't the most flawless sunset I was hoping for but once the light faded and I could balance the lighting of the stadium and the sky it made for a satisfying general view over the beach volleyball venue.

Justin Bieber Punches Man Who Was Choking Woman at Coachella Party
The "Baby" singer yelled at the man to let the woman go after he grabbed her throat, and struck him when did not, reports TMZ . That's when Justin allegedly punched the guy and shoved him up against the wall, which freed the victim.

The Athletes walked into the Stadium in the pre-show of the Ceremony and before the spectacle was broadcast live.

"The future looks very bright when you look at the number of teenagers we had in the squad".

The Closing Ceremony failed to deliver the same ratings as its opening counterpart, drawing in 1.14 million metro viewers compared to the two million-plus who tuned in for the Opening Ceremony.

Instead, Seven shared footage shot earlier on Sunday night of the athletes in the stadium, including Fearnley. We are thankful we were able to get even these pictures.

Australia's retiring captain Mark Knowles bowed out a victor after the Kookaburras won their sixth straight Commonwealth Game title by beating New Zealand 2-0 to win the men's title at the Commonwealth Games. "I don't know. It was pretty unusual, but what do you do?" "It was important that we got into the final".

Zempilas also pointed out the speeches from the dignitaries dragged on for "way too long" and were a little "self-indulgent".

"Inclusion is the Commonwealth Games' future, it's what makes us extraordinary", said organising committee chairman Peter Beattie. Participants and visitors also appreciated the attractive locale that is the Gold Coast - and the beaches, surf and sand did not disappoint. Having said all of that, and we all hope sincerely this doesn't over shadow the Games.

Several high profile athletes like England's Adam Peaty and Australia's Kyle Chalmers appeared to be down on performance, as is often the case at this stage in the Olympic cycle.
