Vomiting bug hits Brit players in Doha training camp ahead of Delhi CWG

With less than three days to go for the Commonwealth Games to commence, British athletes have been reportedly struck down by a contagious vomiting bug at their training camp in Doha in the Middle East.


London, Oct 1: With less than three days to go for the Commonwealth Games to commence, British athletes have been reportedly struck down by a contagious vomiting bug at their training camp in Doha in the Middle East.

According to The Sun, bosses of the Welsh team have quarantined up to 14 athletes fearing that the virus could spread to the whole party, including Team England and Team Scotland, and ruin British medal prospects.

The setback has come just few days before athletes from all three nations were due to fly to New Delhi for the start of the Games from October 3.

Athletes at the camp in Qatar, who have been infected, include sprinter Mark Lewis-Francis and teenage diving world champion Tom Daley.

The vomiting outbreak was revealed by Welsh pole-vaulter Bryony Raine who has been confined to an isolation room.

"Unfortunately, many members of Team Wales are currently out with illness. When we arrived the Scottish swimmers, who had been here a few days before, were suffering from a bug and it has spread to our team," the paper quoted Raine, as saying.

"England athletes arrived on Monday night and the first few cases are being reported within their group. Better to get it now than a few days before the event though. The women's pole-vault final is not until October 12, so we have a while before that," she added.

The training camp, where the athletics and aquatics teams are preparing ahead of the Games, is home to Britain's best medal prospects.

A spokesperson for Team Scotland, however, confirmed that so far no Scottish player has been affected by the sickness bug.
