Highlights of Commonwealth Games

Found Thousands of Condoms in CWG Village - Rubbery problem The Commonwealth Games Village is confronting a civic problem again. It is not the dirty loos or spit-stained bathrooms, but choked drains, which are now causing problems. And this time, the athletes themselves are to blame.

About 80,000 police on duty have been reinforced by 17,000 paramilitary troops to counter the danger of an attack by extremists.

much as the three points that came with the result as it provided the hosts a solid start to their men's hockey campaign in the Commonwealth Games here Tuesday, so says coach Jose Brasa. 'Malaysia had other opportunities to score and we were also not good inside the 'd',' said Brasa while pointing out that one of the major differences between the two teams was the number of 'field players' he had for substitutions. On penalty corner specialist Sandeep Singh's absence from the field for the first 27 minutes, Brasa said: 'We played our best team, but later we played Sandeep for much of the second half. It had to do with our rotation of players so that everyone was fresh.'
