England reach first ever Commonwealth Games netball final with last-second win

Team Nigeria ended day seven in the 10th position in the medal table of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

"Rakesh Babu and Irfan Kolothum Thodi are with immediate effect not permitted to participate in the Games".

"The CGF should exhort Ravinder Chaudhry, Namdev Shirgaonker, and Vikram Singh Sisodia that any further infractions by any individual from the Indian group of the "no-needle" approach could bring about the withdrawal of accreditation of the culpable individual", she said.

Two Australians competing against the odds took gold in the men's and women's road cycling races. Thodi completed thirteenth in the men's 20km race walk last Sunday.

The needle was found by a cleaner working for the Icognitus Cleaners company.

In a freaky set of events, five more athletes appear to be missing from Commonwealth Games Village organisers said on Thursday, after eight competitors from Cameroon were suspected of fleeing a day earlier.

ASADA investigators then searched the room and located another needle in a bag belonging to Babu.

Possibly the boldest mass vanishing happened in 2011 - when an entire football team from Senegal disappeared from their hotel in France.

With two days to go, Lartey's win means Team Ghana has equalled its best record of clinching a bronze medal at Glasgow Games in 2014.

The Commonwealth Games Federation said: "The athletes have the right to travel freely on their visas", but admitted that they are monitoring the situation. "How is the CGF so confident that both athletes were using the same syringe". "These are worldwide athletes who have very strict training programs and they undertook their training as was expected", Cr Dobie said.

A Queensland Police spokesman told news.com.au that authorities are not on the lookout for the athletes because "they haven't committed any offence" and the athletes still hold a valid visa. "We will appeal against these decisions", Shirgaonker said during a press conference.
