Naman Tanwar Wins for Bronze in CWG 2018

Inducted into the Indian table tennis team at the last moment, Sanil Shetty bagged a bronze in men's doubles event at the Commonwealth Games and described it as "most memorable".

Adeleye made this known while responding from Gold Coast, Australia, to questions on Nigeria's performance at the games from the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Abuja on Sunday.

Angus Brandt, a member of the Australian basketball team which won a gold medal, said the entire Australian basketball team was disappointed to be left out.

They claimed one Gold Medal, one National Record, a Plate Final, six top 20 finishes and made the island's first ever showing in team triathlon. "Again, we got that wrong", he wrote.

"After 10 years, Nigeria got two men in 100m finals". We came, we saw, we conquered. "I congratulate all those athletes who are bringing back medals", Modi said in a statement. Yes, we did get it wrong. Sophie is an inspiration to so many, and having the para-athletes competing alongside the able-bodied is a wonderful inclusion - and one that I hope will continue with other major sporting events. "The people who have been critical are also justified", Beattie said.

"Definitely, athletics is on the upward swing in the country", he said.

It is England that will be the host of the next Commonwealth Games as it returns to the country for the first time since 2002 when Manchester hosted. Should [athletes] have been a part of the actual ceremony that was broadcast? We did something special on the Gold Coast and it was one of the best weeks of my life.

"Truly if we want a Games that is representative of all the people across the Commonwealth, then our athletes need to be truly representative", said the American, a former senior executive at the International Paralympic Committee (IPC). "Yes, we did stuff it up", Beattie said.

He went further to announce that arrangements have been put in place to ensure that the athletes are properly hosted in Nigeria.

And not just through the athletes and the fierce competition they must face and overcome, but the support teams that surround each athlete.

Similarly, in women Hammer throw, Queen Obisesan finished fifth, throwing 63.84m, unlike 57.16m she threw in the last Commonwealth in Glasgow. England, who were champions at the 2014 edition, came second with 45 gold, 45 silver, 46 bronze, India clinched third spot with 26 gold, 20 silver, 20 bronze.
