Birmingham bids adieu to Commonwealth Games 2022

From the beats of Bhangra to the power-packed performance of Apache Indian,' it was a carnivalesque atmosphere at the refurbished Alexander Stadium here, as a dazzling closing ceremony brought the curtains down on the high-octane edition of the 2022 Commonwealth Games. More than 4,500 athletes competed from 72 countries over the past 11 days. India finished with 61 medals, five less than their tally four years ago at Gold Coast. Mirabai Chanu, Achinta Sheuli triumphed in weightlifting by winning Gold while PV Sidhu won Gold in badminton. India also won Gold in Lawn Bowls. Here are the glimpse of the evening:
