England win netball gold at Commonwealth Games

17 Avril 2018

Kurt Fearnley had a lesson for us all after his win in the wheelchair marathon.

The 25-year-old briefly got back to his feet to continue, but he soon collapsed once more and the time it took medical staff to attend has drawn widespread criticism.

In a social media post on Monday morning, Beattie said the closing ceremony telecast should have been organised more appropriately. "It is odd playing a match against them, but you just have to go into it and do your best to win the match".

Sheridan cried after the "fairytale finish".

"After Callum Hawkins collapsed on the bridge medical staff provided treatment when requested".

'We shouldn't tear down people who want to do that'.

Corbin took to Twitter to post her delight, saying: "Words can not describe this feeling.WE ARE COMMONWEALTH CHAMPIONS!

I can't be more honest about it than that", Mr Beattie said. "When people in wheelchairs get kicked off airlines, kicked off facilities, when they're not getting access to education, when they are issues with employment, I will fire up and grab everyone along with me".

"Personally, everyone just gets together".

Other African countries on the medals table included Uganda with 6 medals, Botswana with 5 medals, Namibia with 2 medals, Cameroon with 3 medals, Mauritius, Seychelles and Ghana, each with 1 medal.

In athletics, the male 4×100 relay team failed to start in their first round heat, after two members of the team, Martin Owusu Antwi and Sean Safo-Antwi were declared unfit after they picked up various injuries from the 200m semifinals and 100m heat events respectively.

The Roses' victory over the home side came after they fought back from a four-point deficit in the final quarter of the game.

"I think Australia have felt under pressure this whole tournament".

It was their first ever major title and helped England to achieve their highest gold medal tally at an overseas Games since 1990.

"I think there's a few key things around our ability to convert all our changes and I think the outcomes need to be better but that's something we can work on".

"It's a bit different going into the match because you are playing against someone you train with all the time. And that's as good as it gets, that is".

Nigeria placed eighth at the 2014 games with 36 medals.

Meanwhile, host Australia finished atop of the table with 80 gold medals, 59 silver and 59 bronze medals.

"You can never measure the benefit of that, it's just part of who we are as New Zealanders, it's part of our national identity and something to be celebrated", he said.

"I've been waiting for this, and it makes it hard to leave when you win", he said.
