Eliza Mc Cartney should be one who wins another gold medal for New Zealand

Migration agents on the Gold Coast, where the games are taking place, have reported receiving phone calls from athletes to inquire about how they can stay in Australia once the games concluded. The first round of missing athletes were discovered on Sunday when three of the team "departed the village".

The Commonwealth Games Federation Medical Commission have made a complaint against the members of the Indian team competing in the 21st edition of the quadrennial multi-sport event, according to a press release from the CGF.

SOUTHERN DOWNS mayor Tracy Dobie has expressed her sympathy for Cameroon officials after one-third of their athletes were reported missing from the Commonwealth Games Village.

It's the second time Team India has been in breach of the no-needles policy on the Gold Coast with a doctor from the boxing team reprimanded for failing to properly dispose of a syringe in the days leading up to last week's opening ceremony.

Bill Cosby accuser admits concocting story for memoir
The former women's basketball administrator at Cosby's alma mater, Temple University, alleges he gave her pills and molested her. On Thursday, it was Dickinson's turn to tell jurors that Cosby had taken advantage of her after knocking her out with drugs.

Grevemberg also stated that despite the search of the missing athletes from Cameroon, five boxers and three weightlifters, the welfare of the athletes still came first.

"New Zealand has over 250 athletes competing in the Games including 13 para athletes competing in 3 para sports and I am excited for the opportunity to see the games and support our athletes.

They have the right to travel freely, but this is obviously an issue that team Cameroon is monitoring closely and until it becomes a real issue in terms of visas and so forth we would obviously have to take that very seriously".

"It's obviously disappointing that some of the athletes that have come, didn't compete", Grevemberg said.

Without a new contract, Landry would play the 2018 season on the franchise tag, which the Dolphins used on him before the trade. His $15 million average salary ranks him fifth behind Antonio Brown , Mike Evans , DeAndre Hopkins , and Sammy Watkins .

"Right now we are anxious about safety and welfare of the athletes and we are taking this very seriously and monitoring the situation with team Cameroon".

"We would appreciate them sticking within the law, enjoying themselves but sticking within the law", Beattie said.

In 2012, five boxers, a swimmer and a footballer from the African nation vanished during the London Olympic Games.

At the conclusion of the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games, 45 athletes and officials from Bangladesh, Cameroon, Ghana, Nigeria and Sierra Leone overstayed their visas or applied for protection visas once the Games had finished.
