Cellia Sullohern, Madline Hills and Elosie Wellings had already crossed the finish line minutes earlier before the last competitor.

The second last place competitor out of 19 competitors from the race was Scotland’s Beth Potter already finished the race three minutes prior to Chaka. It was the first attempt of Chaka at the 10,000 meter race.

The three Australian athletes after their race were already exhausted they continued to say on the track after finishing their run urging and clapping Chaka to finish her race.

Sullohern, the sixth place winner told reporters that “we are here for each other”. This show of support for Chaka was something that she and her teammates wanted for Chaka.

After race Chaka told reporters that pace was too hard for her and that was the reason she struggled from the very start.

There had been issue of Australian Sportsmanship after the recent Ball Tampering scandal from Australian Cricket players but the recent show of sportsmanship has restored the faith in Australia that sportsmanship qualities are not dead for Australian athletes.

Hills pointed out that while athletes are competing against each other at Common Wealth Games, but they still are in need of support and encouragement for each others as well.
