Bajrang Punia won the gold medal

Using a very low shutter speed and a panning technique to create great movement and color, I've captured the four man Malaysian team rounding the home bend on day one of the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. In CWG 2010, New Delhi, India won the maximum medals, when massive 600-plus strong members competed to bag 101 medals.

In more firsts for India, Manika Batra became the first Indian woman to win gold in the table tennis final.

"After 10 years, Nigeria got two men in 100m finals". I've dreamed of this for a long time. "This is the first time I will be India's flag-bearer in an event like this". We got that wrong. "We got that wrong", he said.

In a series of Twitter posts Monday, Beattie said the ceremony had not worked out as organizers planned.

In a statement, the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games organising committee acknowledged it had made a mistake and emphasised the good intentions of the event's creative team.

Presenters for the Seven Network, the Australian broadcast rights holders for the Games, added to the opprobrium, teeing off at Games organisers because the vision they provided did not include the athletes entering the stadium.

Indian shooter Anish Bhanwala, aged 15, created history by becoming the country's youngest ever Gold medal victor in the Commonwealth Games, in the men's 25m rapid fire pistol.

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.

Crystal Palace vs. Brighton live stream
However that run-in sees them face all of the Premier League's top four sides, along with making the trip to an in-form Burnley. Brighton are in a much more comfortable position, sitting 13th in the standings , with a seven-point gap over the bottom three.


The lacklustre ceremony was panned by audiences, who left the stadium in droves along with "bored" athletes, and took to social media to vent their anger.

"So far, they have not disappointed us though we had one or two errors that had been corrected so that others won't fall victim again", he said.

However, Australia thrashed Canada 87-47 in the men's basketball final, Shelley won the marathon and David Palmer and Zac Alexander were crowned men's doubles squash champions on the final day.

The quartet of Patience Okon-George, Glory Nathaniel, Praise Idamadudu and Yinka Ajayi won silver in the women's 4x400m relay.

Nigerian athletics got its only bronze in men 4X400m relay. "They made the decision not to have the athletes enter the stadium".

Seye Ogunlewe finished fourth while Enoch Adegoke finished sixth among eight finalists.

"Jenly has proven that Solomon Islands can compete at the global level and especially at the highest level like the Commonwealth Games", Mr Rara said.

It was, nearly inevitably, set by the Australian team, who put behind them their disappointing 2017 world championships by winning 28 swimming gold medals and 73 overall, well ahead of England's nine (24).
