PM hails Indian team's success at 2018 Commonwealth Games

"AFN 2018 season's developmental programmes were put to test at the Gold Coast and we bagged five medals at the Commonwealth Games within five months".

"You have to take note of that".

"We understand many people have been disappointed by tonight's closing ceremony and to be perfectly honest Jo, so have we been", Zempilas said.

At its start, 2018 was earmarked as a critical year for the Indian men's hockey team - with a number of prestigious events lined up, right from the Commonwealth Games in April to the Hockey World Cup, the holy grail, in December.

She also got to meet Prince Charles, who presented her with that gold medal.

India will look to wrap up a largely successful campaign by aiming for more gold on Sunday. "We have single-handedly supported the rise of women in sports in the country".

"It's our best ever overseas games, we're very, very happy".

However, quite apart from the impracticality of merging two already huge events, there appears little enthusiasm among Para-athletes for emulating the process at the Olympic Games.

Table tennis players, boxers and shuttlers also performed commendably as they delivered a combined total of 8 gold medals alone.

"So proud to sing All We Need Is Love at the Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony - a song I wrote about celebrating love in all its forms and about accepting of our differences and coming together no matter who you are or where you are from, because we are always stronger when we stick together", she wrote. The junior world record holder threw over the 80m mark in the finals and set a season's best to clinch India's sole gold medal in athletics. Meanwhile, Joshna Chinappa and Dipika Pallikal will aim for gold when they play the women's doubles gold medal match. "That should never happen", she said. So we were not able to bring you any pictures because we did not have pictures available to us to bring you. Those teenagers were fearless.

Crowned Asian champion just months ago, Mary Kom added the light flyweight (48kg) Commonwealth crown to her tally today. Instead, the problems that have been plaguing the Men in Blue for long, all came to fore over the course of the 60 minutes of the match as they slumped to a 3-2 defeat.

Winners: McClenaghan's gymnastics gold was the defining moment of the Games for Northern Ireland. Hosking held off several challenges over the past 200 meters from eventual silver medal victor Georgia Williams of New Zealand and Wales rider Danielle Rowe, who took bronze.

Both Sindhu and Olympic 2012 bronze medallist Saina kept their unbeaten run alive and their victories over lower-ranked opponents went on expected lines.

The athletes who took part in the Games emerged from their seats to join throughout the stadium to a thunderous Gold Coast welcome from the 35,000 strong crowd.
