PM hails Indian team's success at 2018 Commonwealth Games

Get live updates of 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast here. Tejaswini Sawant right of India and fellow countrywoman Anjum Moudgil led an Indian 1-2 in the women's 50m Rifle 3P shooting event at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast on Friday

Gold Coast, Apr 14 (PTI) The legendary M C Mary Kom (48kg) became Indias first woman boxer to claim a Commonwealth Games gold before men joined the gold quest through Gaurav Solanki (52kg) and Vikas Krishan (75kg) as the team rejoiced its best ever medal haul at the mega-event here today.

"I thought I won the first round, the second round she was a bit busier and I thought she won that, then the third I thought I had just done enough at the end to win it", said the St John Bosco fighter.

The Whitby, Ont. native says he's bringing home more than a medal from these Games. I'm furious. Actually wrecking a tradition that is so important.

"We made a mistake", he said, and claimed the organising committee didn't want exhausted athletes to have to stand outside for ages waiting to come in.

"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. 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", stated PM Modi in an official release.

He couldn't achieve a hat-trick but two balls later, he rearranged Yuvraj Singh's woodwork with an in-shaping delivery. Rahman, who had until then been very impressive with figures of 3-0-10-1, was expected to turn the heat on Bangalore .

The show continued with a performance by Ricki-Lee and The Koi Boys before Anthony Callea took the stage to perform "You Should be Dancing" accompanied by the athletes.

India has had a long and illustrious association with the Games that begun way back in 1934.

Griggs said half the stadium had emptied during the ceremony and most of the athletes had already left.

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

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.

Stormy Daniels may show up at Cohen hearing
According to The Washington Post, Cohen may be under examination for possible bank fraud and for campaign finance violations. Cohen has not yet been charged with any crimes, but at this point it's a foregone conclusion.

The events management company is part of the IPG group and leading its organisation of the opening and closing ceremonies was David Zolkwer, head of Jack Morton Worldwide Public Events. "We got that wrong" he added.

Commonwealth Games organisers slammed for closing ceremony. The 2022 Games will be held in Birmingham after the city came in on short notice to replace Durban, South Africa, which had lost the hosting rights in 2017 after failing to deliver on key promises in its bid.

In fact, viewers didn't really see any athletes in the broadcast of the closing ceremony, and they were pretty mad about it. "I can't be more honest about it than that", he said. Here are some of the bright stars to emerge from Gold Coast.

Zempilas: Performance from our athletes have been spectacular.
