New Delhi, Oct.5 : The Commonwealth Games squad from New Zealand have said that they are satisfied with the facilities but they are careful about their health aspects.

Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, Chris Pilone, the coach of the Kiwi athletes, said that the runners are all prepared but they are taking care to avoid falling ill.

Meanwhile, 21-year-old Nikki Hamblin, the 800m runner, said that she was quite happy with the accommodation and other facilities provided at the Games Village in New Delhi.

"So far everything that I have seen is fine. You know our apartment is fine. There is lots of space in our apartment, which is nice; we are not completely on top of each other. And food hall, you know, great food. And yeah! Everything I have seen so far is great," said Hamblin.

The English-born Hamblin, a middle distance runner, was granted New Zealand citizenship in 2009.

New Zealand has sent a team to every Commonwealth Games since the first in 1930 and at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, New Zealand had an overall total of 529 medals (124 Gold, 168 Silver and 237 Bronze).
