Australian shooters worried about safety during Commonwealth Games

Olympic gold medallists Michael Diamond and Susie Balogh are part of over 100 clay target shooters currently competing in Brisbane for selection at the games to be held Oct 3-14.
Diamond said: "Our safety in New Delhi is definitely a concern."

"As long as Australia is sending a team, we have to trust that security is being taken care of, but that worry will always be in the back of our minds," AAP quoted Diamond as saying Friday.

Australian Commonwealth Games Association chief executive Perry Crosswhite has said that the risk was manageable but it would be up to athletes to decide whether they will attend.
