England win netball gold at the Commonwealth Games in a dramatic final

England win netball gold at the Commonwealth Games in a dramatic final

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).

Kyron McMaster brought some well-needed joy to the British Virgin Islands by winning its first Commonwealth Games medal in the 400 metres hurdles just six months after Hurricane Irma devastated the tiny nation and killed his coach. Very hard to watch. "We are parochial and we are Australians and Michael Shelley is a courageous man and he is hopefully now on his way to a second gold medal but to see what we're seeing in the background tears your heart apart, to be truthful".

Commentator and former middle distance runner Steve Cram called the wait for treatment "disgrace", but Mark Hawkins of the local organising committee said: "We need to check the facts out".

As a result, they were left standing in the shadows of the stadium as the events on stage played out.

"I'm super proud that we were able to put in a performance that we are proud of".

"The older you get the more you are unsure it could be your last Commonwealth Games so you have to take advantage but the bigger pitch is we bounce back for this summer and make sure we are better".

GOLDOC later released a statement confirming the protocol in place for medical treatment.


Fearnley with wife Sheridan and son Harry (pictured after the 1500m race earlier this week) shared an emotional moment after his marathon effort.

Team Scotland later revealed Hawkins was sitting up and speaking with family and medical staff. Australia had three prior golds and two runner-up appearances.

"As a shooter you dream of that moment - Commonwealth Games final, last-second goal - but you never believe It's really going to happen", she said.

The chairman of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation lashed out at critics only hours after he admitted on the Nine Network there were too many boring speeches. "You can't have medical people on every kilometre of the road".

"Personally, everyone just gets together".

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.

After absolutely slaughtering the rest of the Commonwealth on our home turf, the 2018 Commonwealth Games comes to a close on the Gold Coast tonight.
