Commonwealth Games closing ceremony: Australia topped at Birmingham 2022

There was pop music, British Jamaican reggae, Punjabi Bhangra, Asian crossover music, Apache Indian, and local bands presenting their hit numbers producing sounds that are part of a multi-cultural society.

After an amazing closing ceremony that was hosted by none other than Ozzy Osbourne, the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games are now officially over.

After an eventful day that saw Australia secure the top slot in the medal standings, focus now shifts to Victoria 2026, which was prominently showcased at Alexander Stadium. Australia earned 67 gold, 57 silver, and 54 bronze medals throughout the campaign.

Due to how well it went, Australia acquired an overwhelming victory over the event’s hosts and main competitors, England, in the medal count with one day left to go. Then it was party time, and Birmingham put on a fantastic performance.

After Birmingham celebrated what Lord-Lieutenant of the West Midlands John Crabtree called “truly a global and international city”, the Commonwealth Games flag was lowered, folded and handed over to Victorian Governor Linda Dessau.

The ceremony came after the final day of competition, with the Kookaburras winning their seventh consecutive Commonwealth Games gold in the men’s hockey final, beating India 7-0.

That gave Australia its 67th and final gold of the Games, with a silver medal in women’s doubles table tennis, and silver and bronze in mixed 3m synchronized and mixed 10m  diving.
