"We wanted to get them in early, and they came in as part of the pre-show but we made a serious error of judgement by not having them in the broadcast".

"Should've they been a part of the actual ceremony that was broadcast? I can't be more honest about it than that", Beattie said in an interview on the Sunrise morning news show.

The decision was a creative one by GOLDOC, not the faut of the host broadcaster.

"I am chairman of the organising committee, and the buck stops with us". She had to fight and she used her experience and class. "Amit (Panghal) is tremendously talented, but got a very good opponent in the final, Manish (Kaushik) had the toughest draw and Satish (Kumar) had a tough fight in the final (before they settled for silver)".

"People are thinking that Channel Seven has chosen not to show pictures of athletes or not to show the flag-bearer, Kurt Fearnley or other flag-bearers. I am not interested in blaming anyone else", he said.

Every athlete who represented India at 2018 Commonwealth Games inspires us. The last thing they want is to stand in a field for an hour waiting to get into a closing ceremony.

Performer Ricki-Lee Coulter called the controversy "a little bit sad", and said the vibe in the stadium was "amazing".


Griggs replied that he was being "way too polite", adding that the she'd "never seen the stadium so empty" and blaming the host broadcaster.

"You want to see the athletes come in". I wish we could have actually seen him as part of the program.

Guy Sebastian was one of a number of local artists who performed at the closing ceremony on Sunday night.

The Closing ceremony of Commonwealth Games 2018 will broadcast on Sony Six, Sony Six HD and Sony Ten 2 and Sony Ten 2 HD in English Commentary.

With 26 gold, 20 silver and 20 bronze medals, this was India's third best finish in CWG history after 2010 Delhi edition (101 medals) and the 2002 Manchester edition (69).

"Mitch Larkin's efforts in the pool will go down in the history books".

It was a sad way for the Games to end, after 11 days of glorious moments not limited to Fearnley's gold in his last race for Australia, Mitch Larkin's five golds in the pool, the incredible backstories behind the successes of Steele von Hoff and Anja Stridsman, the emergence of 17-year-old swimming star Ariarne Titmus and our superb cycling effort. She was previously a reporter with the Brisbane Times and Domain.
