Commonwealth Games should not have gone to Delhi: 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.
