    Love the CGs, mainly because NZ usually ends up with an awesome medal haul.

    There must be some nerves amongst those heading for Delhi after the tourist shootings yesterday, though. But I'm sure the security will be excellent.

    Yes, Bolt is injured, but he was never really going to go, anyway, because this is his rest period, before starting preparations for the World Champs in South Korea next year....

    Among those also missing will be Asafa Powell, Yohan Blake, Nesta Carter, Veronica Campbell-Brown, Shelly-Ann Fraser, Kerron Stewart, Sherone Simpson, Sherri-Ann Brooks, Briggite Foster-Hylton, Vonette Dixon, Deloreen Ennis-London, Melaine Walker, Kaliese Spencer, Ricardo Chambers, Jermaine Gonzales, Michael Frater, Mario Forsythe, Dexter Lee, Isa Phillips and Dwight Thomas. All of these athletes are better sprinters than those who were named to the CWG squad. Again, all of them are undergoing their rest period, before starting to work themselves into peak form for the World Champs.

    Honestly wouldn't be going if I was an athlete. Security aside (which I assume will be adequate, but incidents like yesterday certainly don't help), the reports suggesting that dengue fever is a threat would be a major concern for athletes. Wouldn't just be effecting them over the course of the games, but potentially for a reasonable amount of time after.

    Dunno how people can't like an event such as the Comm Games.

    What would you prefer, a Two and a Half Men marathon, ****s??

    I just assumed it was a warm-up for the pistol shooting, didn't realise it was a security breach.
