Ghana Ends Commonwealth Games With One Medal

The organizers of the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games have apologised for Sunday's closing ceremony on Sunday night which has been roundly criticised for not including athletes. England was placed second with 45 gold medals while India came in third with 26 gold medals.

All Indian Wrestlers return with medals.

The hard fought gold by Shreyasi Singh in Women's Double Trap, the gold medal winning feats of Manika Batra in women's individual category and the gold in men's javelin throw by Neeraj Chopra are fine examples of India breaking the glass ceiling. "It's always wonderful to win a race, but it's so much better to have another Australian up there".

Australia are the only nation to win Commonwealth Games basketball gold after claiming top spot in both the men's and women's tournaments in Melbourne 2006 and at the Gold Coast.

Keralites Muhammed Anas, who missed a bronze by a whisker in men's 400m, and Jinson Johnson, who ended fifth in men's 1,500m race, too can return with their heads held high having broken national records.

Below are some of the significant milestones India has achieved in the recently concluded Commonwealth Games.

GOLDOC chairperson Peter Beattie has apologised for a "stuff-up" at the closing ceremony of the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games after athletes were marginalized from the television broadcast and a string of officials hogged the spotlight with lengthy speeches. The seasoned Jitu Rai, Sanjeev Rajput, Shreyasi Singh, Tejaswini Sawant and Heena Sidhu too cornered glory.

Indian athletes and their performances at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games have taken #GC2018 and Twitter by storm. World champion Mirabai Chanu proved her class yet again in the women's 48kg.

Three months later, Mary proved that her latest return to the ring wasn't a fluke when she won another gold medal in the inaugural India Open boxing championship. Her maiden CWG singles gold came at the 2010 Games in New Delhi.

Boxing gave Team Ghana the only medal when Jessie Lartey picked bronze in the 64kg light welterweight division despite his controversial defeat to Canada's Thomas Blumenfeld at the Oxenford Studios. Saina also played a lead role in India's triumph in the mixed team competition.

Manika Batra was simply sensational in the table tennis events.

Reception of the closing ceremony has marred what was otherwise an excessively successful fortnight for Australia at the games, which saw the Green and Gold collect an astonishing 198 medals in total.

Martin said other multi-sports events should also shift to medal parity between men and women, although this year's Pyeongchang Winter Olympics had a record number of women and close to a 50-50 split between the sexes. "I won this for the whole Malaysian badminton team". This increased Nigeria's medal haul to eight gold, five silver and five bronze medals.
