England netball STUN Australia to take Commonwealth gold: WATCH insane celebrations

Another 45 silvers and 46 bronzes gave them a total of 136 medals - also their second best for an overseas Games.

Waddell said the Gold Coast Games medal tally showed that New Zealand sport was moving in the right direction, particularly given the targeted approach to funding. Very hard to watch.

Beattie said organisers had meant to spare athletes a long wait before entering the venue but had got the broadcasting decision wrong.

The athlete who made the biggest impression on me, and many others I'm sure, was weightlifter David Liti - so humble and delighted to have succeeded in his sport.

"We got that wrong", the Commonwealth Games chairman said.

Team Scotland later revealed Hawkins was sitting up and speaking with family and medical staff.

Apart from the marathon, Kenya's dismal performance in Gold Coast Australia was evident in the men's 5000m and 10,000m, women's 10,000m, women's 3000m steeplechase and men's javelin.

LAKEISHA Patterson is eager to step up as a resonant voice for the cause of para-athletes to help fill the void left by the retirement of wheelchair marvel Kurt Fearnley from major Games.

England's John Smith and Simon Lawson finished over a minute later to claim the silver and bronze.

"I'd like to think that although funding is dispersed in different ways, we have got some good collaboration going on within the teams", Waddell said.

Games CEO Mark Peters said organisers had "put in place a wide range of measures to ensure athlete welfare and the response of medical staff this morning was within agreed response guidelines and timeframes".

The closing ceremony will be broadcast from 8:30pm AEST, tonight, April 15. If I can say anything to the next people wearing the green and gold, young kids coming up, when you get on the microphone, when you speak, err on the side of kindness.

"Personally, everyone just gets together".

Usain Bolt dee-jayed and Yohan Blake pranced around the ground dressed like Borobi, the mascot, as the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast came to an end in a spectacular but long-drawn closing ceremony on Sunday.

The Gold Coast Games were the first with an equal number of gold medals for men's and women's events, included 38 events in a fully integrated Paralympic programme and welcomed a high-profile transgender athlete.
