I would go to Delhi CWG: New Zealand PM

New Zealand Olympic Committee will take another one day to decide whether to participate in the event or not but Key is quite clear that he would have been in the Indian capital come what may.

"Yeah, if I could pick my own sport, yeah I would go," he told 'New Zealand Press Association'.Key said it unlikely that New Zealand would pull out on its own.
"If we are likely to not send our team then it'll be because a large number of like-minded countries form the same view," he said.

"It's heart-breaking for them (the athletes) if they can't go," he added.Asked about NZOC's continuing indecision on the matter, Key said the body is entitled to the time it is taking."Obviously the Olympic Committee feels that they need a bit more time before they can make a final call on that."
