Here's Why Everyone Is Furious About The Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony

Aussie Rugby Sevens Team Campaign For Gold

Beattie said organisers had meant to spare athletes a long wait before entering the venue but had got the broadcasting decision wrong.

"Look, we understand many people have been disappointed by tonight's closing ceremony", Zempilas said at the conclusion of the ceremony. "And, to be honest, so have we".

He later admitted to SEN Afternoons organisers "did get it wrong", but said he would, "blow up ... when there is a real solid circumstance to blow up".

In related news, Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated India's contingent at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, saying that the competitors will motivate more youngsters to pursue sports.

"But we made a mistake.that was clearly a stuff up". We can only show the pictures that are provided by the actual host broadcasters.

"The athletes would not have enjoyed last night".

"At previous ceremonies athletes were herded around, they stand around, they hate it, they get bored, often they don't go", he said.

Performances from local musicians including Amy Shark, Guy Sebastian, Yothu Yindi, Kate Cebrano and Dami Im were included in the broadcast.

The ceremony has been described as lacking star power, even with sprinting legend Usain Bolt hitting the DJ decks and dancing with mascot Borobi during the spectacle. "It was a journey for that- and then I just happen to walk away with a medal", says Garton.

Griggs was congratulated for her on-air condemnation of the closing ceremony in which she displayed her anger that the broadcast didn't celebrate the athletes.

"But I think at this point at the Games, standing around really isn't the biggest concern given all the athletes had taken part in their events and they've competed".

"While we can't promise you the sun, sand and sea of the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, we can offer you youth, energy, creativity and a love of sport", she said. They were way too long tonight. "I'm not interested in blaming anyone but us", Mr Beattie said.

The 21 Commonwealth Games will witness Mary Kom as India's flag-bearer as bagged a Gold Medal by beating Northern Ireland's Kristina O'Hara in the light flyweight (48kg).

Inexplicably, after being elected flag bearer at the closing ceremony, para-sports gold medallist Kurt Fearnley barely featured on our screens, despite it being the moment that all Aussies were waiting for following his T54 marathon victory. Many athletes were seen leaving the stadium while the closing speeches were still in progress, reports Xinhua news agency.

It was the fifth time that Australia hosted the Commonwealth Games.

"It was the intention of the Closing Ceremony creative to have the athletes involved from the very start of the show, enabling them to be all part of the celebrations, " read the statement.

"We can't let anything distract from that", he said.
