Team Nigeria Finishes Eighth As Australia Wins 2018 Commonwealth Games

CWG 2018 The five-time world champion Mary Kom wins gold

The 2010 event in India was even a much better event for team Kenya, where the team collected 29 medals in total. The next two in the list are Canada and New Zealand, with 1555 and 655 medals respectively. That included 38 gold, 27 silver and 36 bronze. 26 gold, 20 silver and 20 bronze, came across 9 disciplines. The Indian contingent won 30 gold at that edition along with 22 silver and 17 bronze. India's final gold won by the pioneering shuttler Saina, who beat Sindhu in 21-18, 23-21 in the final.

For Sindhu, this was the second CWG singles medal of her career, the first being bronze at Glasgow 2014.

The pair also informed viewers that Channel 7 was only permitted to show footage provided by the Games itself, and that the network would have broadcast the athletes' entrance if it were allowed to do so. Srikanth was virtually reduced to a spectator as Lee piled on the points.

Speculation continues over what could have gone wrong for the team that finished 14th overall in the medal standings and third in Africa behind South Africa which came in sixth, and Nigeria in ninth.

This was Joshna's first and Dipika's second medal at Gold Coast after taking silver in the mixed doubles with Saurav Ghosal.

The colourful closing ceremony of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games ends on happy note with host Australia top the medal table with 198 medals including 80 gold medals, 59 silver and as many bronze medals while Pakistan finished at 24th with one gold and four bronze medals here on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Manika Batra grabbed her fourth medal at this year's CWG.


Manika and Sathiyan defeated compatriots Sharath Kamal and Mouma Das 11-6, 11-2, 11-4 in the play-off for the third position at the Oxenford Studios here.

"I was one of hundreds of dancers and we had the most exhilarating experience and I'm gutted that Australia missed out on it", she said.

"India's contingent at the 2018 Commonwealth Games has made every Indian extremely proud".

It was also free to start its coverage earlier than the ceremony's designated start time and play its own exclusive footage of the team arriving to the cheer of the crowd but aired an episode of My Kitchen Rules instead. I don't want us to access our success with medals.

'Until it becomes a real issue in terms of visas and so forth we would obviously need to take that very seriously but right now it's a safety and welfare issue for those athletes from a Team Cameroon perspective'.

Then England will host the XXII Commonwealth Games in 2022 and the flag of the Commonwealth Games was also handed over to them during this stunning extravaganza with millions of people enjoyed the enthusiasms showed by the athletes from around the world including Pakistan.

"I hope India's success at 2018 Commonwealth Games motivates more youngsters to pursue sports and creates larger awareness on the importance of fitness in everyone's lives", he said, adding: "On our part, we in the Government are doing everything possible to strengthen the FitIndia movement".
