Powered by its friendly atmosphere, it gave much more than a token nod to gender equality and para athletics, an inclusiveness that has been widely admired.

English city Birmingham was awarded the next Games in 2022 after original hosts Durban were stripped of the multi-sport event for failing to meet Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) deadlines.

The closing ceremony was held at Carrara Stadium and was produced by Jack Morton Worldwide in which the Australian pop stars Guy Sebastian, Samantha Jade, Dami Im and the Veronicas performed.

Beattie also conceded speeches went for too long.

Mr Beattie tweeted an apology on Monday morning. "You've made us all very proud", he said. The numbers puts them at the third position, behind Australia and England. "Now more than two-three boxers are doing well at a major event". As one of the youngest competitors in 10m air pistol, Bhaker set a Games record to top the podium, proving that she remains one of India's best medal prospects for Tokyo 2020.

And these were indeed the "Friendly Games" as they are often tagged.

"To be brutally honest, most of the athletes left during the ceremony".

That makes a mockery of their often-repeated claims of leaving it all out on the field of play.

He added that Mr Pompeo had been "very smart" about preparing for the job and seeking to reassure the "neglected" rank and file. That's not to say that questions about Mueller are entirely irrelevant to Pompeo , however.

Team Australia topped the medals table with 198, followed by England with 136 while Malaysia finished 12 with seven gold, five silver and 12 bronze.

The 2016 edition of the race saw a spectator who had travelled from New Zealand to Australia to watch the race lend his shoes and bike to Tyler Farrar after the American rider had a crash.

"Channel Seven now running a 'countdown to the closing ceremony".which has already started #GC2018, ' someone wrote on Twitter.

Canadian chef de mission Claire Carver-Dias says the 2018 Team Canada was built for the future. "It hasn't really lived up to expectations", Zempilas fired away (a full transcript of their comments is in today's West Australian).

"I've been delighted with the way they've represented the country".

"If they're part? They should have been. I'm furious", she said.

In fact, with the exception of weightlifting world champion in women's 48 kg category Mirabai Chanu, the gold medal-winning performance of the lifters in Australia was nearly 15 kgs-20 kgs less than the medal-winning performances at the last Asian Games and Asian Championship. It's nearly like they were kind of already there and gone to another level. While Canadian officials came into the Gold Coast with a stated goal of 100 medal wins from their athletes, their real aim was to use this event as a stepping stone towards Tokyo.
