Team Kenya finishes 14th overall at Commonwealth games

Team Kenya finishes 14th overall at Commonwealth games

The exuberance of youth, the endurance of experience and a bit of usual drama that is signature Indian sports - the country's Commonwealth Games campaign was all this and much more with a medal count that turned out to be the third best ever.

Fireworks light up at Carrara Stadium during the closing ceremony of the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, Australia, Sunday, April 15, 2018.

However, Mr Beattie told Sunrise that the reason for leaving the athletes out was based on the competitors' welfare.

The performance of the Kenyan team in the commonwealth games has been going down since 2010.

There you have it: fans and commentators alike agree a crowning achievement for one of Australia's toughest athletes wasn't given the send-off it deserved.

"At previous ceremonies athletes were herded around, they stand around, they hate it, they get bored, often they don't go", he said.

In a later television interview, Beattie said "did we stuff it up? Yes. I have got everything", she said.

Koch's criticism came after Channel Seven's broadcast hosts Jo Griggs and Basil Zempilas gave a scathing assessment of the ceremony live on air. To be perfectly honest Jo, so have we. "Again, we got that wrong", Beattie tweeted.

The marathons kicked off the final day of competition at the XXI Commonwealth Games and they got underway in blazing sunshine on the Gold Coast.

She was competing in her debut Commonwealth Games, also perhaps her last, and made it a memorable one with yet another dominating performance to claim an unanimous verdict of 5-0 over Northern Ireland's Kristina O'Hara in the final.

Griggs was quick to defend her network amid the furore, but went even further with her criticism. "People are thinking that Channel Seven has chosen not to show pictures of athletes or not to show the flag-bearer, Kurt Fearnley or other flagbearers".

Neeraj Chopra became the first javelin thrower from India to win a gold at the Games, while Mary Kom also won a medal of the same colour in her first (and probably last) CWG.

They're not the only ones taking stock of their accomplishments - all of Canada should now know who to watch as the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo draw closer.

Social media users also criticised the opening ceremony for being too long and featuring too many speeches.

Boomers athlete Angus Brandt said many athletes felt a little "left out".

However, in men's singles final, recently crowned world No.1 Kidambi Srikanth let slip a strong start to lose in three games to Malaysian icon Lee Chong Wei, who claimed his third individual gold in Commonwealth Games.
