'We were left out': Athletes bemused by snub

TV Host Blasts Comm Games Closing Ceremony Live On Air

At the 20th Commonwealth Games in Glasgow Scotland in 2014, Kenya finished in ninth place with 24 medals nine of them gold, ten silver and five bronze in 21 sports disciplines.

"I'm sorry you're being way too polite", Griggs responded.

"For me, the Commonwealth Games were a stepping stone for worlds next year, and worlds are a stepping stone for the Olympics".

"This decision to bring the athletes into the stadium before the broadcast was operationally driven, given there were restrictions on being able to keep the athletes waiting in comfort".

"Athletes and coaches that could not make it to Gold Coast are camping in Port Harcourt for the Continental event so that we will not only host but lead the medals table", he said.

It was the intention of GOLDOC to celebrate the accomplishments of the athletes and provide them with a great experience.

She said: "We can not stand by and let Russian Federation trash every worldwide norm and allow use of chemical weapons to go unanswered".

"You want to see the athletes come in".

"Jenly has proven that Solomon Islands can compete at the worldwide level and especially at the highest level like the Commonwealth Games", Mr Rara said.

The decision was a creative one by GOLDOC, not the faut of the host broadcaster. "They are a way for us to come together and share what we have in common".

According to him, myself and my coaching crew believe in possibility of getting better results from raw talents and we put heads together from the onset to realise that objective.

Instead, Seven shared footage shot earlier on Sunday night of the athletes in the stadium, including Fearnley.

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. "We got that wrong". We've never seen a stadium as empty as this.

The US was also anxious that the strikes would prompt a confrontation with Syria's biggest military ally: Russian Federation . The strikes would result in a "long term degradation of Syria's ability" to create, use and deploy chemical weapons, U.S.

They expressed their disappointment over the decision to leave the athletes' entrance out of the broadcast, saying it was not the decision of the network.

"Before the 2018 Commonwealth Games, national records are being dusted by home-based athletes at national trials and meets".

I want to say thanks to the best club in the world - Sporting Clube de Portugal for giving me the opportunity to represent my country here in Australia.

However, the closing ceremony will forever go down as a shocking error of judgement, putting a dampener on a successful 12 days of competition.

The superstar sprinter has shown off a new string to his bow on the Gold Coast.

Several high profile athletes like England's Adam Peaty and Australia's Kyle Chalmers appeared to be down on performance, as is often the case at this stage in the Olympic cycle.
