"The Cameroon Commonwealth Games Team is sad to announce that eight of the 24 athletes they took to the 21st Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast - Australia are missing from their respective rooms in the Games village", the team said in a statement.

"There's been many times when I was faced with the choice of give up or keep going", she said.

Whiteside, 32, who suffered a serious fracture in a freak fall in 2015, will face Carly McNaul of Northern Ireland in Saturday's final.

Nicolson's brother Jamie won featherweight bronze at the 1990 Auckland Games but died in a vehicle crash with another brother before she was born.

Asked if it felt an unsatisfying bronze, she replied: "Yeah, it does".

Cheered on by his jubilant family and friends, Garside was overcome by emotion after claiming gold at his debut Games.

"No, nothing", she answered.

She eventually lost out to Paige Murney of England in their semifinal clash.

Commonwealth Games: 'Ronaldo' spotted on bowling green

Just two months before the Commonwealth trials past year, Stridsman tore her anterior cruciate ligament during a fight in Poland.

She made the courageous decision to fight in the qualifiers before reconstructing the ligament, which helps stabilise the knee joint.

Cameroon's press attache Simon Molombe Lyonga told SBS News he couldn't "pretend to know their intention" for deserting, but said: "As we might say in Africa, they've gone for greener pastures in Australia".

"I would simply say enjoy Australia while you are here, this includes Cameroon and any other athletes, stay within the law and be mindful of the fact that there is a system in place in this country", Beattie told a news conference on Wednesday.

The Sydneysider remarkably carried the injury through all three of her bouts at November's selection trials before having surgery to replace the damaged ligament with an Achilles tendon taken from a corpse.

Hosking's win was even more remarkable given just two weeks ago she was in hospital after crashing at 60km/h during a race in Belgium, leaving her in fear she'd broken her shin. "There were big changes at CA and at first it was a bit of a slap in the face but when I stopped and listened there was a lot to learn and a lot that I could change to make myself better", she said.

Nyika, who had won the past three fights between the pair, maintained his supremacy to add to the gold medal he won in the 81kg division at the 2014 Glasgow Games.
