India real force to reckon with during Delhi CWG: England chef de mission

Englands chef de mission Craig Hunter reckons that India would be a real force to be reckoned with during the Delhi Commonwealth Games.


New Delhi, Oct 2: England's chef de mission Craig Hunter reckons that India would be a real force to be reckoned with during the Delhi Commonwealth Games.

When asked which nation Team England would be competing against for honours on the Commonwealth Games medal table, Hunter said: "We recognize India - because of the nature of the events in the games, there are some core events that the host nation can include - clearly India will be a real force to be reckoned with."

He also considers Canadian athletes as major medal winning prospects.

"Canada have been investing massively in their program and have had great success at the Vancouver Olympics and that will be a knock-on affect," Fox Sports quoted Hunter, as saying.

"So, we know it is going be a challenge. Obviously our aim is to be the very best we can be. As (shooter) Mick (Gault) said, we are going to be there, we are going to be in everybody's face and we are going to be aiming to win," he added.

Team England was second in the medal tally at the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games with 110 medals - 36 gold, 40 silver and 34 bronze.

However, their strength has been damaged by a number of high profile withdrawals from the October 3-14 Games.

Among the British athletes who have withdrawn are world champions Jessica Ennis and Phillips Idowu, Olympic champion Christine Ohuruogu, double European champion Mo Farah and world medallists Lisa Dobriskey and Jenny Meadows.
