Commonwealth Games medal totals: Canada finishes with 82

On the athletics track, England's sprint relay teams won double gold. Swimmer Adam Peaty was beaten in the 50m breaststroke final and Alastair and Jonny Brownlee finished off the podium in the men's triathlon. Commonwealth Games Canada is committed to hosting a Games in Canada, possibly in 2030 to mark the 100th Anniversary of the inaugural Games which were held in Hamilton, Ontario.

"You have to take note of that".

Away from the sport, the Gold Coast Games admirably did not shy away from controversy. Commonwealth medals are incredibly hard to get.

"I'm even prouder that in my video for this song I featured a young gay couple - which was also brought to the world stage for this performance!" "When I don't train I feel sick sometimes", she added.

The curtains were drawn on the 21st commonwealth games at Gold Coast, Australia this evening following a colourful ceremony with legendary Boxer MC Mery Kom leading Indian delegation carrying tricolour.

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. Alex Marshall is now the country's most successful Commonwealth competitor after a fifth gold.

Taylor Ruck was arguably the swimmer of the meeting with eight medals in eight events, leading a resurgent Canadian swimming team along with backstroke world record holder Kylie Masse.

Speaking of her 22-year-old opponent Kristina O'Hara, who works as a carer in a nursing home, Mary Kom said she has sparred with her in the past.

Winners: McClenaghan's gymnastics gold was the defining moment of the Games for Northern Ireland. They were stars in their own right, here to pursue personal goals, not those which cynically box-tick broader pictures like the interminable medals tables or funding cycles. Australia's Michael Shelley ran past the Scot on his way to victory.

Superstars are all well and good, but if they come pre-packaged in PR spin, cellophaned off from the real lives of those who wish to see them as such, then one can hardly hope for future generations to aspire to follow in their footsteps.
