    cute Atheletes started arriving for Commonwealth Games



    As athletes begin arriving, CWG finally on track Indo-Asian News Service
    New Delhi











    The controversy-hit 19th Commonwealth Games here Oct 3-14 are finally on the home stretch, despite some more pullouts by star athletes, and Australia, which hosted the previous edition, even questioning why the Games are being held in India. After days marked by doubts and uncertainty, England'sfirst batch of 47 officials and athletes, including the hockey and lawn bowls teams, arrived in New Delhi Friday. The full contingent of 551 athletes will arrive in the next few days, officials said.





    For the Organising Committee, there was much to cheer as Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) president Mike Fennell said Friday he was pleased with the confirmations of Australia, England and Wales to participate in the Games.
    "I am certainly pleased to arrive in Delhi with the news that Australia has moved into the Village to get ready for the arrival of their athletes, and with the confirmation late yesterday that England and Wales will be on their way to Delhi shortly," said Fennell, who came here Thursday to review the progress.
    "Already so many athletes from around the Commonwealth have started their journey to Delhi," said Fennell, who is taking stock of the Games Village Saturday.
    On Friday, Fennell also met Cabinet Secretary K.M. Chandrashekhar, who is in overall charge of the preparations for the Games. He had sought an appointment with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, but this was declined.

    Fennell said he has learned considerable progress was made in the Games Village, where conditions had earlier in the week been described as "filthy and unlivable".

    "The briefing I received from my CEO, Mike Hooper, last night, was that considerable improvements have been made within the Village, with further significant resources deployed by Delhi Chief Minister, Mrs. Dik****, to make good what was a concerning situation," Fennell said.
    As part of the cleanup operations, around 100 stray dogs have been rounded up from the Village and other Games venues by the capital's civic authority in coordination with an NGO, an official said Friday.
    According to Fennell, "we must ensure that a suitable environment is provided to ensure the welfare of the athletes and their support staff.



    Some 7000 particilants from 71 countries and territories are expected to arrive to attend the Commonwealth Games. The last Commonwealth
    games were held at Melbourne, Austrailia in 2006.
