Kiwi chef de mission impressed with dining hall, recreation zones around Games village

New Zealand chef de mission Dave Currie slammed the authorites on Tuesday for not having done enough with regard to the Delhi Commonwealth Games, but added that he is impressed with the dining hall and the recreation zones around the Games village here.


New Delhi, Sep 21 : New Zealand chef de mission Dave Currie slammed the authorites on Tuesday for 'not having done enough' with regard to the Delhi Commonwealth Games, but added that he is impressed with the dining hall and the recreation zones around the Games village here.

New Zealand was among nations to complain about the unpreparedness of the Games village, and had subsequently been shifted into a separate accommodation building.

"I think it is disappointing...We are only 12 days away from the opening ceremony, and the Village is as delayed as it is...We are impressed with the dining hall and the recreation zones around the village. They are very impressive. But the residential areas being as significantly behind as they are is a real concern," Currie told ANI.

He said that the preparations for the Commonwealth Games should have begun earlier, and urged the event's organizers to address the concerns of the delegates. "If they (the organisers of the Commonwealth Games) look back now, they would hope that they had finished the construction before the monsoons started. I think that the Organizing Committee had seven years from when they were given the Games until they hold them, and I think they should have used that time wisely.

"I am sure there would be people in the Organizing Committee now, who would be hoping they had started a little time earlier that they have done," Currie said.

The New Zealand chef de mission ruled out pulling from the Commonwealth Games, and added that the Organising Committee has serious challenges to overcome before the start of the Games, which are just 12 days away.

"What we have identified, there are some significant challenges that must be overcome. We are working with the Organizing Committee to try and rectify them and we hope we can reach a stage when we can rectify them.

"We are not saying we are not coming. What we are saying is that the Organzing Committee has some serious challenges that are to be overcome," Currie said.

Commenting on the attack on tourists on Sunday, Currie said: "Our heart goes out to the Taiwanese tourists and their families who have been caught up in this latest incident."
