Commonwealth Games, day 11, Gold Coast

Bajrang Punia won the gold medal

Australia won the gold medal in women's basketball, beating England 99-55.

For a CGF constantly fighting the perception that a multi-sport event which sprung from the British Empire is an anachronism, there was confidence that the movement was firmly on the path back to relevancy.

Helalia Johannes won the women's marathon in 2:32.40, becoming Namibia's first female gold medallist at the Commonwealth Games.

"Before the 2018 Commonwealth Games, national records are being dusted by home-based athletes at national trials and meets".

"From its beginnings. the Games were always created to be more than just a sporting spectacle". "It's a surreal experience, winning your first worldwide medal on a big stage".

It was by far the best individual performance by an Indian athlete as she ensnared a historic individual gold, a team gold, a women's doubles silver and a mixed doubles bronze.

With the now retired Usain Bolt watching from the stands, Jamaica's sprinters had a desperately disappointing time in the athletics, winning none of the six titles in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relays.

Silver medals were grabbed by Mehuli Ghosh, Heena Sidhu, Sawant, Anjum Moudgil and bronze medals by Ravi Kumar, Om Mitharwal (two bronze), Apurvi Chandela and Ankur Mittal.

NAN reports that Nigeria's Oluwatobiloba Amusan won Gold in women 100m, while Suwabidu Galadima also won Gold in men's T47 100m.

Sanil Shetty and Harmeet Desai won bronze after they defeated Singapore's Pang Yewn En Koen and Poh Shao Feng Ethan in table tennis doubles. It was a rare meet for the Jamaicans, who didn't pick up any gold in the 100, 200 or 4x100 relays - Yohan Blake's men's team was third in the one-lap relay and Elaine Thompson's women's team was second.

The ceremony also featured at least seven speeches by dignitaries, including Mr Beattie, Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, and the Lord Mayor of Birmingham - the 2022 Commonwealth Games host city.

England's Helen Housby held her nerve to land a penalty on the siren and stun the heavily favored Australians 52-51 in the netball. New Zealand are expected to win the semifinal and face Australia in a re-match of the Rio Olympics final. Should (athletes) have been a part of the actual ceremony that was broadcast?

"Since we came on board, preparations for Commonwealth Games and the African Senior Championship among others have been on the front burner".

This is the Commonwealth Games, where Paralympic athletes are not just included but fully integrated in the teams, and their events in the program.
