Prime Minister Narendra Modi hails India's success at 2018 Commonwealth Games

For Sindhu, this was the second CWG singles medal of her career, the first being bronze at Glasgow 2014. In both, the Gold Coast and the people of Australia have been wonderful hosts and have generated a fantastic atmosphere from the start of the Queen's Baton Relay to this, the closing c ceremony.

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. The 22-year-old, who dropped out of college to focus on her game, justified what many would call a massive risk. They won 16.2% of the medals available, only delivering a lower percentage at Melbourne 2006 (15%) - which was also staged in the northern hemisphere spring. "If we can get such results in our first global appearance, it means we can do more", he said. "It shouldn't be an excuse".

As the 2018 Commonwealth Games draws to a close, India has amassed more than 50 medal across all the competitions of the games. The wrestling team won three gold, two silver and three bronze.

Ashwini, however, failed to grab a bronze medal in the mixed doubles partnering Satwik, even as H.S. Prannoy suffered defeat in the men's singles bronze-medal playoff. Swimmer Adam Peaty was beaten in the 50m breaststroke final and Alastair and Jonny Brownlee finished off the podium in the men's triathlon.

THE curtain came down last night on "the best Commonwealth Games ever", and global Games supremo Louise Martin declared Queensland had proved it could now shoot for the Olympics. Commonwealth medals are incredibly hard to get.

"It is not the result that I wanted but I am still very satisfied with my performance and silver is better than bronze", Quadri was quoted as saying on the ITTF website.

She used to keep mum about the conflict between the two men in her life, but she made a decision to open up about it now. In the photo, Minaj is also seen carrying a gold-color clutch and leopard-print tape across her nose.

"You sometimes feel embarrassed about over-egging the pride of wearing the Scotland jersey, but this meant so much".

Prime Minister Houenipwela said he hopes the facilities the Government will build in preparation for the 2023 Pacific Games will help the country's athletes train and pave the way for Solomon Islands to win more medals at the Commonwealth Games and other worldwide competitions. In fact, TV audiences didn't get to see many athletes celebrating their appearance at the Gold Coast event at all.

The curtains were drawn on the 21st commonwealth games at Gold Coast, Australia this evening following a colourful ceremony with legendary Boxer MC Mery Kom leading Indian delegation carrying tricolour.

While Canadian officials came into the Gold Coast with a stated goal of 100 medal wins from their athletes, their real aim was to use this event as a stepping stone towards Tokyo.

"You know what, it was a handsome games, it was an unbelievable games".
