England hold off Canada comeback to win historic Commonwealth Games bronze

England hold off Canada comeback to win historic Commonwealth Games bronze

The concluding ceremony of the Commonwealth Games held in Gold Coast Australia, this evening.

Beattie took to Twitter on Monday to address concerns, saying the decision was originally driven by the fact there were "restrictions on being able to keep the athletes waiting in comfort".

"What we were trying to do, we were concerned about athlete welfare", he told Seven's Sunrise.

But that didn't cut it for the media with a host of reporters turning on Commonwealth Games organisers following their dramatic failure.

Organizers signed off with the uncontroversial assertion that they had delivered the best possible environment for the athletes from 71 mostly former British colonies to showcase their skills over 11 sun-kissed days in the beachside city.

In a later television interview, Beattie said "did we stuff it up? Yes".

"I'm sorry, you're being way too polite", Griggs said, adding that the decision was "wrecking tradition".

Organisers made a decision to go against tradition and bring in the athletes before the ceremony started, meaning TV crews weren't able to snap shots of the Australian squad arriving at Carrara Stadium, along with flag bearer Kurt Fearnley. To be perfectly honest Jo, so have we.

"It was particularly special for me because I got to celebrate my home town on the world stage with so many people I love!"

"He wondered what we were doing to get such result".

"People are thinking Channel Seven has chosen not to show pictures of athletes or not to show the flag bearer, Kurt Fernley or other nation's flag bearers coming in".

During the broadcast, Seven commentators Johanna Griggs and Basil Zempilas slated the bungled event, with Griggs visibly "furious" by the lack of athletes pouring in to be led by flag bearer Kurt Fearnley.

England leave Australia with a haul of 136 medals but it was a mixed Games for some well-known faces.

Spectators began streaming out of the Carrara Stadium before the ceremony finished, leaving the venue seemingly half-empty when the lights were turned back on. We had at least, 11 semi-finalists which we had not seen in a long time.

And we were. Stretching from Surfers Paradise to the beach volleyball courts of Coolangatta, the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games are destined to go down as one of the greats.

These Games - the first major multi-sport event to feature gender medal event equality - provided not only a platform for Canada's young, developing stars of tomorrow, it also showcased the strength of Canadian women athletes.

That was cyclist Katie Archibald's reaction when she claimed individual pursuit gold in what would prove to be Scotland's most successful away Commonwealth Games.
