She explains, "He knows me and the sport, too, so he comes up with ideas that suit me".

She said she may give the Olympics another attempt - "if I am fit enough, I will go for Tokyo 2020".

"As rights holders, we were only allowed one camera in the stadium, a news camera, on the condition we wouldn't show the vision for 24 hours", Griggs said. You know things are bad when the commentators are ripping into how awful the ceremony was and what bad decisions the organisers have made.

The closing ceremony of the 21st edition of Commonwealth Games or XXI Commonwealth Games is scheduled to take place on April 15, 2018 (Sunday).

"The other thing there were too many speeches".

Queensland's Courier-Mail reported that athletes left the ceremony early to hit the bar. "I can't be more honest about it than that", Mr Beattie said on Sunrise.

Australian media slammed the decision, noting it denied viewers the chance to see para-sport star Kurt Fearnley carrying the Australian flag into the venue.

Robertson said it's awesome to see our athletes fight for and win medals at the pinnacle of their discipline.

"It is the first time that Jamaica is winning this many medals at the Commonwealth Games with a significant number of the medals coming from the field".

"We were looking forward to being part of the closing ceremony and being recognised for what we've done at the games and we sort of walked in there and we weren't really sure what was happening and then realised that we'd been brought in before the broadcast had begun". Canadian Olympic gold medalist Erica Wiebe of Stittsville, Ontario, who won the Commonwealth Games gold medal in the women's 75kg wrestling competition in the Gold Coast, was the flag bearer for Canada in the closing ceremonies. We wanted to stand there and celebrate our athletes and it didn't happen. "I have got everything", she said.

She refuted several claims made with regards to the closing ceremony and called the night a "farce" before thanking her co-host Basil Zempilas and Channel 7 for allowing her to speak her mind. "Yes we did stuff it up", he said.

The ceremony was even criticised by Australian broadcasters, Channel Seven, with former CWG bronze Medallist Johanna Griggs saying during the live coverage she was "furious" with the decision.

"We wanted athletes to be part of and enjoy the closing ceremony. Their life stories illustrate the power of dedication and a never-say-die attitude that made them overcome countless hurdles to attain the heights of success they did at the CWG", the PM added.

"I think every other event should be trying to do the same so they have to make the program, they have to look at scheduling and make sure that the male events don't dominate the female events".
