Gold Coast, Apr 14: nearly every medal that is there to be taken is in her kitty but MC Mary Kom says she still trains like a maniac, the latest result of the regimen being a gold on debut at the Commonwealth Games here.

Organisers made a decision to go against tradition and bring in the athletes before the ceremony started, meaning TV crews weren't able to snap shots of the Australian squad arriving at Carrara Stadium, along with flag bearer Kurt Fearnley.

The closing ceremony came under immediate fire, not least from the presenters on Australian broadcasting rights holders Channel Seven, for sidelining the athletes and spending too much time on long-winded speeches. "And, to be honest, so have we".

"We were concerned about athletes" welfare, one of the problems is when you've got thousands of athletes, where do you put them?' he said.

Griggs said she was "furious" over the decision not to let athletes enter the stadium during the broadcast, and was supported by commentator Mel McLaughlin.

Host broadcaster and operator of the event's International Broadcast Centre, NEP Group, were quick to deflect criticism from its coverage.

'It was such a magnificent Games, how can you stuff up the closing ceremony?' Koch asked the former Queensland premier.

Koch was particularly scathing about Jack Morton Events as "not even being part of the Commonwealth".

Vincent and Kompany toast City's EPL title
We're super happy but there's still so much work to be done before this squad's full potential is unlocked. I've been lucky to win three but I've missed some as well", the experienced defender told Sky Sports.

This was India's second most successful Games overseas, behind only Manchester, 2002.

Mumbrella has contacted Jack Morton Events for comment.

England's netball team stunned favourites Australia to take the gold medal in a last-gasp victory at the Commonwealth Games.

Commonwealth Games 2018 lasted for 8 days and Indian contingent routinely secured gold on an everyday basis.

"So far, they have not disappointed us though we had one or two errors that had been corrected so that others won't fall victim again", he said. This resulted in the athletes entering the stadium during the pre-show, rather than during the live broadcast.

GOLDOC has admitted to being at fault in a statement today, acknowledging that its decisions did not provide the opportunity for the television audiences to share the moment. While the total number of medals did not change from Glasgow, the number of golds plummeted from 31 to 15.

"We came to Commonwealth with about 80 per cent home-based athletes that we believe could do us proud as a nation". The 22-year-old, who dropped out of college to focus on her game, justified what many would call a massive risk.

Apart from the marathon, Kenya's dismal performance in Gold Coast Australia was evident in the men's 5000m and 10,000m, women's 10,000m, women's 3000m steeplechase and men's javelin.
