Indian envoy steps in to avert Oz Commonwealth Games equipment disaster

Indian authorities have finally released Australias Commonwealth Games sporting equipment after it languished in a port for more than ten days.


New Delhi, Sept.18 : Indian authorities have finally released Australia's Commonwealth Games sporting equipment after it languished in a port for more than ten days.

According to the Herald Sun, the container arrived on September 6 in Mumbai Port, but a shipping backlog forced the vessel to anchor offshore for 12 days.

The container contained poles belonging to champion vaulter Steve Hooker, alongside training equipment, medical supplies and furniture for the association to set up headquarters during the Games.

Australian Commonwealth Games Association officials have stepped up their logistics and monitoring operations as more equipment is headed to India next week.

The recovery and release of the container was made possible after the ACGA made a desperate plea to India's High Commissioner to Australia Sujatha Singh, who contacted India's Ministry of Shipping and asked that the ship be berthed for unloading.

ACGA chief executive Perry Crosswhite received an email about 9 a.m. this morning that the equipment was on the move.

He expects the container to be loaded on a train on Saturday before it begins its 1,400km.
