Gold Coast 2018: Team Nigeria Drop In Table Despite Wrestling Medals

Sam Webster wins gold in the Cycling mens sprint

The Games have welcomed more than 6,600 athletes and team officials from 71 Commonwealth nations and territories to the Gold Coast and event cities Brisbane, Cairns and Townsville, to share in the celebration of sport, entertainment and culture.

On Monday night, another two were declared missing, and finally, last night, three others left their room, likely never to return.

No failed drugs tests have been reported at the Games, but pre-tournament testing snared three Australian athletes and a number of foreign competitors.

Cameroon press attache Simon Molombe told AFP that he was shocked to learn weightlifters Olivier Matam Matam, Arcangeline Fouodji and Petit Minkoumba, along with boxers Christian Ndzie Tsoye and Simplice Fotsala, had disappeared without warning. Athlete visas for the Commonwealth Games expire on May 15, Grevemberg said.

Prominent barrister Julian Burnside said the athletes' visas could in theory include terms that they have to be present at the Games Village every day.

The Australian police and security services were immediately alerted about their disappearance as the search intensifies to track them down.

A spokesman for the Australian Border Force said the federal government was working closely with the Games organising committee and global stakeholders to ensure officials and athletes were aware of their visa responsibilities.

Seven left the athletes village during the London Olympic Games in 2012.

He similarly petitioned Google to remove search results about a crime he had committed, for which he served four years in jail. In those circumstances, "the public interest in having information with his name about this case doesn't prevail".

"These athletes left in three waves".

"They have taken action against two athletes, which we do not agree with at all. and we will appeal against the decision", they said.

Prior to the Games, Home Affairs Minister Mr Dutton warned athletes and officials travelling to Australia against overstaying their visas.

"When an athlete comes to Australia to compete in a competition we expect them to front up on the field and compete, so we are disappointed about that".

Beattie said it was up to the Cameroon team to monitor the situation up until the point the athletes break the conditions of the visas.

"Gold Coast. are missing from their respective rooms in the Games village", the team later said in a statement.

"The question is how they are confident that one syringe is being used by both athletes", Chaudry said.
