Games should not have gone to Delhi, says Australia
Australia's Olympic Committee president has said the Commonwealth Games should not have been awarded to Delhi.
John Coates said the Commonwealth Games Federation lacked the resources to monitor progress and to ensure that construction deadlines were met.
England have become the first overseas team to reach Delhi, but other nations have delayed their arrivals.
A New Zealand cyclist became the first member of his nation's team to pull out because of health and safety fears.
Greg Henderson, who has won four medals at previous Games, cancelled on Friday, citing concerns over the state of facilities - a day after four British cyclists withdrew from the 3-14 October competition.

What is scarier for me is the bridge that fell down...the bridge that will take people/cars into the stadium.
It is easy for people to criticise now though, the Commonwealth board have a lot to answer as they appear to have not been monitoring them closely or enough or not doing anything about what they saw.

The corruption scandal, gun fire incident and this commonwealth disaster really put India's reputation in rock bottom. I have no idea how India is going to pull themselve together from this slum. Anyway, I hope they(athletes as well) can pull through the commonwealth game in one piece.

Games officials faced more embarrassment yesterday as an Indian boxer's bed collapsed when he sat on it after moving into his accommodation at the athletes' village.
Akhil Kumar, who won gold for India in the 54-kg division at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, said that he was disappointed with his accommodations.
"When I sat down on my bed to take a rest, it collapsed," Kumar was quoted as saying by the Times of India newspaper.

2010 XIX Commonwealth Games in Delhi: More concerns are about their safety fears
Yes, all our different Australian Sports National Associations are quite worried about what's reported not good at this coming 2010 XIX Commonwealth Games to be held in Delhi.
More concerns are about their safety, rather than about the health fears.
I have heard that the Indian Army is now put into full alert to keep a tight security to protect participants.
Let's hope that everything will run smoothly at this 2010 XIX Commonwealth Games.

..all the baddy players/teams should just sleep and shower in the badminton hall/venue. Probably one of the safest and cleanest venues in the CWG..
