Considering the way the 2018 Commonwealth Games (CWG 2018) were dominated by Australia - which ended with 198 medals - four less than the combined tally of the next two (England 136 and India 66), the question will continue to be asked in the near future. He threw 86.47m to clinch India's maiden Javelin Gold medal at the senior level. The action, drama., sportsmanship and excitement that has defined the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games continued right up until the last second.

Meanwhile, host Australia finished atop of the table with 80 gold medals, 59 silver and 59 bronze medals.

The first batch of the Kenyan team that took part in the just concluded 21 edition of the Commonwealth games in Gold Coast, Australia, jetted in this morning, with the rest expected to follow throughout the week.

There was relief that Bolt stuck around, because otherwise this was a closing ceremony that collapsed under its own artifice.

"Athletes and coaches that could not make it to Gold Coast are camping in Port Harcourt for the Continental event so that we will not only host but lead the medals table", he said.

Purely based on numbers, this was India's third best Commonwealth Games - behind Delhi (2010) and Manchester (2002).

It was a step down for Team Nigeria who finished eighth at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

"We stuffed it up and I apologise to the viewers and the athletes".

She also got to meet Prince Charles, who presented her with that gold medal. We can't affect what other people do.

15-yr old Anish Bhanwala won a gold medal in men's 25m rapid fire pistol. Back then, India won eight medals in pairs and six in individual events in shooting. It said it needed to get the athletes on the ground earlier to accommodate the athletes leaving the event early.

The Indian mixed badminton team secured its first gold medal in the history of the games.

There were five medals in the shooting, while Gareth Evans won gold in the men's -69kg weightlifting and teenage gymnast Latalia Bevan was a surprise silver medallist on the floor.

Winners: Cyclist Elinor Barker produced a stunning performance to win points race gold, Hollie Arnold set a world record with her final throw to claim the F46 javelin title and Sammy Lee and Lauren Price won boxing golds.

Angered by the Games' organisers' decision to largely exclude athletes from the televised celebration, Seven Network commentator Basil Zempilas echoed the views of the hundreds of disappointed viewers who took to social media to complain. Rashid Anwar was the nation's first medal victor at the Games, winning bronze in men's 74kg wrestling in London 1934.

"India's contingent at the 2018 Commonwealth Games has made every Indian extremely proud".
