Day 5 - 23/04/11 - Closing Ceremony
This morning the squad went to yet another stadium where an Olympic style opening ceremony was held. The athletes waited in the center of the stadium while each delegation received a commemorative plaque.
The athletes and delegations were then paraded around the stadium following flag bearers. There was a big cheer when England walked around and an announcement was made that our National Coach, Wayne Otto OBE was in attendance at the games which demonstrated the high regard he his held in other countries.
The teams were then escorted to their seats to watch the children in traditional costumes dance to traditional music and watch some children's sporting displays.
All the athletes and teams from all of the participating sports were then taken to the Governor of Konya's house for a BBQ and garden party.
There they met the Governor himself and other dignitaries. Entertainment and dancing followed before eventually heading back to the hotel to recuperate.
What a day to remember.
