CWG 2018: Naman Tanwar Wins for Bronze, Three Others Amit Panghal, Gaurav Solanki, Manish Kaushik Enter Boxing Finals

As part of the Closing Ceremony proceedings, the David Dixon Award was also presented to an outstanding athlete of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Griggs fired off another 20 tweets, including ones blaming the host broadcaster NEP, before her and her co-host Basil Zempilas were tasked with wrapping up the tedious broadcast mere seconds after the ceremony had finished.

At the end of 2018 Commonwealth Games yesterday in Gold Coast, Australia, Team Nigeria won nine gold, nine silver and six bronze medals to finish ninth on the overall medals table. "Not us", she wrote, an hour before the ceremony had even finished. They made a decision not to have athletes enter the stadium.

NEP, the American broadcast company in charge of sending footage to every Commonwealth nation, referred blamers to a statement from the GOLDOC Chairman this morning, tweeting they were "just as disappointed in tonight's outcome" as the viewers.

These stellar shows should augur well for Indian sport in its forward journey as preparations are bound to begin soon (if it is already not on) for the Asian Games to be held in Jakarta in August-September this year. Should (athletes) have been a part of the actual ceremony that was broadcast? 8 stars. They're ours, Bermy.

Games organising committee chairman Peter Beattie said as things stood, none of the athletes had breached Australian law.

The organisers of the 21st edition of Commonwealth Games have issued a public apology for conducting a shambolic closing ceremony which drew flak from many sporting organisations and officials.

Calling on the Commonwealth to join together again in 2022, Lord Mayor of Birmingham Councillor Anne Underwood said: "Birmingham is extremely excited and honoured to have been selected to host the XXII Commonwealth Games in 2022". "People are thinking that Channel Seven has chosen not to show pictures of athletes or not to show the flag bearer, Kurt Fearnley".

It was also free to start its coverage earlier than the ceremony's designated start time and play its own exclusive footage of the team arriving to the cheer of the crowd but aired an episode of My Kitchen Rules instead.

Athletes sit at the back of the stadium during the performances.

Simmone Bernetzke said she was completely surprised when a friend told her the athletes arriving to the stadium was not shown on screen. "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. In both, the Gold Coast and the people of Australia have been wonderful hosts and have generated a fantastic atmosphere from the start of the Queen's Baton Relay to this, the closing ceremony. "And I could not be more proud of that fact".

"I don't get why you're apologising Mr Beattie, because to be really honest you don't know what's going on behind the scenes of television production".

Holmes worked as a sports presenter for Channel Seven from 1998 to 2000.
