Twelve medals for Team NI in Commonwealth Games

These Commonwealth Games have been something of a slow burn for Team England, but their campaign well and truly caught fire on the last full day of competition, with 11 gold medals being forged in the process. "Again, we got that wrong", Beattie tweeted. Now, I'damn sorry, if I receive an opportunity I'll apologize to Kurt (Fearnley) that morning.

Seven presenter Johanna Griggs, a 1990 Commonwealth Games swimming bronze medallist, teed off at organisers, after viewers initially expressed frustration with the broadcaster when athletes were left out.

It was not just the men who stood on the top of the podium, but where they were in cruise control, a makeshift women's 4x100m team had a tougher time on the way to gold.

In front of a disappointing crowd at Carrara Stadium, Channel 7 host Johanna Griggs accused the event organisers of destroying a beloved tradition. "They made a decision not to have athletes enter the stadium". However, having them come into the stadium in the pre-show meant the TV audience were not able to see the athletes enter the stadium, alongside flag bearers.

Local media slammed organisers for taking the spotlight away from the athletes, and Australia's para-athlete flagbearer Kurt Fearnley said it was "pretty strange".

The Englewood School District was closed Monday because of a lack of substitutes to cover the teachers who walked out. Therefore, it is necessary every school that they should provide the healthy environment to the students like home.

"We were concerned about the welfare of athletes", he explained.

"Should they have been part of the actual ceremony that was broadcast?" You want to see them jumping in front of camera.

As the event rolled on, spectators began streaming out of the Carrara Stadium before the ceremony finished, leaving the venue seemingly half-empty when the lights were turned back on.
