Kiwi Commonwealth support staff moves into Delhi Games Village

New Zealand support staffs move into the Commonwealth Games village is being seen as a sign that progress is being made in getting the athletes accommodation ready before the event that takes off on October 3 and lasts till October 14.


New Delhi, Sept.27 : New Zealand support staff's move into the Commonwealth Games village is being seen as a sign that progress is being made in getting the athletes' accommodation ready before the event that takes off on October 3 and lasts till October 14.

A 13-strong New Zealand operations team moved in on Sunday.

"It's certainly an important first step," NZOC president Mike Stanley said.

He added: "We've always said we want to have a team at the Games and we're working really hard, and the team on the ground is working really hard, to ensure that this is the case. This is a signal we are moving in the right direction."

Stanley said chef de mission Dave Currie had consistently said the New Zealanders would not start shifting into their allocated towers until he was confident they were safe and hygienic.

"While all the issues are not solved, they have enough comfort that they can do it," Stanley said, adding that the remaining issues with the accommodation were "becoming more minor".

The first New Zealand athletes expected in New Delhi are the bowls team, who are due to arrive tomorrow just after midnight Indian Standard Time.

The bowlers were originally scheduled to get into the Indian capital last Saturday, as they wanted plenty of time to get used to the slow greens at the competition venue.

Instead, with the accommodation delay, they headed to Abu Dhabi to continue their preparations.

Stanley, along with NZOC secretary-general Barry Maister, last week made a rushed visit to New Delhi to get a first hand look.

He is due to fly back there on Thursday, this time for the Games themselves.

Asked how much doubt there had been over New Zealand's participation, he said the NZOC's plan was always to have a team at the Games.
