CGF delegation impressed with Games Village: Organising Committee


The Commonwealth Games Village is under construction, as Architectural drawings of the buildings stand in the foreground on Thursday.PTI

According to an Organising Committee statement, the CGF Secretary General Louise Martin and her colleagues in the delegation were highly impressed with the Games Village and hoped the athletes would enjoy the facility spread over 27 acres to house 8000 sportspersons in its 4,000 bedrooms.

"Absolutely fantastic. The athletes will enjoy," Martin wrote in the Guest Book at the Games Village.
Craig Hunter, a delegate from England, was also impressed with the Village, where the delegates were taken to Tower 9 and shown a set of furnished apartments.

"This is a wonderful Games Village and we look forward to stay (here) in 2010," he wrote.
The delegates also visited the Thyagraj Sports Complex and appeared to be satisfied with the progress.
They were split into two groups and taken on separate tours where the venue owners apprised them of the progress made, the pace at which construction is being carried on and the prospective dates of completion.
"After the completion of the Village, it seems to be better than staying in a five-star hotel," gushed Tanzanian delegate Filbert Bayi.
