Basil Zempilas And Johanna Griggs Absolutely Roasted The Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony

Commonwealth Games 2018 5 Indians in boxing finals 3 settle for bronze

They made a decision not to have athletes enter the stadium.

GOLDOC has released a statement today apologising for a major planning error.

But again organisers said that on Sunday afternoon, during a run-through of the performance, "the host broadcaster rehearsed cameras as part of the rehearsal" and that "rights holders were allowed to view the rehearsal".

"GOLDOC appreciates that this decision therefore did not provide the opportunity for the television audiences to share this moment".

In fact, viewers didn't really see any athletes in the broadcast of the closing ceremony, and they were pretty mad about it.

However GOLDOC had an explanation.

Victor Agbor Nso said the disappearance of five boxers and three weightlifters - who fled the athletes' village over the course of three days - had left him drained.

"If the athletes didn't come into the stadium until the broadcast time they would have been stuck in a field or a paddock somewhere", Beattie told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) on Monday.

"I am sure there are plenty of athletes and parents of athletes from all around the Commonwealth who would have loved to see their guys coming into the stadium and Peter Beattie saying they did get it wrong and, yeah, they did mate", Fearnley said.

According to BBC Sport, the Cameroon team officials confirmed this through their press attache Simon Molombe viewing it as "desertion" and that the missing athletes had been reported to Australian police. They made the decision not to show the flag bearers.

However the closing ceremony has been widely criticised as underwhelming, with Seven Network presenters slamming organisers for not providing vision of athletes entering Carrara Stadium.

Hosts Australia, were the overall winners at this year's games after amassing 80 gold, 59 silver, 59 bronze to bring their medals total to 198.

This is the Commonwealth Games, where Paralympic athletes are not just included but fully integrated in the teams, and their events in the programme.

"The speeches, look we understand the dignitaries need to get their messages out their... but they were way too long tonight", he said.

"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.

Amber Pitty said ticket prices may have been to blame.

"He wondered what we were doing to get such result".
