The just-concluded Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in Australia had medal equality between men and women for the first time and a para-competition was integrated into the main programme.

South Africa emerged Africa's best team as they finished in the sixth position with 13 gold, 11 silver, 13 bronze medals. The action, drama., sportsmanship and excitement that has defined the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games continued right up until the last second.

Seven has slammed the host broadcaster and organising committee of the Commonwealth Games following an issue with the broadcast of its closing ceremony.

The Gold Coast Commonwealth Games ending without the athletes at the forefront was a mistake, admit organisers. That didn't change in Gold Coast either.

The total of 66 also ensured that India crossed the 500 medals mark on the all-time charts in the Commonwealth Games, becoming the fifth country to do so. And, India can expect some good news from Tokyo in 2020 as Commonwealth Games success has spurred India to improved showing in the Olympics. We can't affect what other people do.

That haul for the Kelowna, B.C. -born athlete included a gold medal in the women's 200m freestyle, where she also recorded a new Games record. India triumphed in non-traditional sports like table tennis (nine, including five gold), squash (two silver) and athletics (three, including one gold).

Shooting, wrestling and weightlifting have always been the frontrunners for India in terms of medals won.

Carter High School said it was extremely proud of former pupil Phumelela Mbande, who operated as goalkeeper for the SA hockey team, while swimming coach Wayne Riddin said he was overjoyed at being present to witness an official member of the local Seals club, Brad Tandy, scoop a silver medal in the men's 50 metre freestyle event.

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.

Northern Ireland matched their total of 12 medals from Glasgow four years ago with the sole gold coming from 18-year-old gymnast Rhys McClenaghan, who beat Olympic champion Whitlock to win the pommel title - his nation's first Commonwealth medal in artistic gymnastics.

India had a successful stint at the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast where the country punched above its weight in some categories, maintained its dominance level in some and produced a tame effort in same.

Disappointments: Despite winning eight medals, Northern Ireland's boxers may well feel there should have been some golds among them. Australia's Michael Shelley ran past the Scot on his way to victory.
