Oz athletes give thumbs up to Delhi Commonwealth Games on Twitter

Australian athletes for the Delhi Commonwealth Games have used social networking website Twitter to give the thumbs up to their accommodation and security in the Indian capital.


New Delhi, Oct 2: Australian athletes for the Delhi Commonwealth Games have used social networking website Twitter to give the thumbs up to their accommodation and security in the Indian capital.

The build-up to the October 3-14 Games have been mired in controversy with the collapse of a footbridge, the shooting of two tourists and reports of filthy and unliveable conditions in the athletes' village.

Swimmer Ashley Delaney said that the condition of the village was improving.

"Each day the village has gotten better and better! I haven't seen a snake or a monkey yet..." Delaney tweeted.

He also described the security on the way to the main competition pool as impressive.

"We have a police escort take us there and back and we don't stop at all. It's actually pretty impressive!"

World champion cyclist Anna Meares said that the conditions are not that bad as reported in the national and international media.

"First day in Delhi over. Drive from airport was an eye opener. Few unfinished things and bit dusty, but all in all not too bad," The Age quoted Meares, as saying.

Australia has topped the gold and total medal tallies at the past five Commonwealths, and is expected to once again be the number one nation.

Swimming, track and field, field hockey and cycling are generally prolific medal-yielding sports for Australia, while the nation has high expectations in gymnastics, diving, netball, tennis and boxing.
