Flag Bearer Level 2

Flag Bearer Level 2 (7/16)



  1. It was meant to be a showcase to show the world, Nigeria is ready to host the next Commonwealth games in Abuja
  2. I couldn't help but laud at the trony of this statement.
  3. Same here, during the woman's final between the India and Singapore. The home crown just went wild every time the home team scored a point.
  4. In case you were wondering, the Aussies beat the home team 5-2 in that match.
  5. Actually, if my memory serves me right, we never had any sporting event, be it the Olympics, Asian Games, CWG on a Chinese-language channel. I think the YOG was an exception though, although it was still broadcasted in English.
  6. Full Article: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-south-asia-11474371 Is he was weed ? Or has Princess Dianna risen from the grave and gotton a sex change ? No disrepect to Princess Di intented.
  7. They're newly built, although some of the debris and dirt can be attributted to the recent Monsoon rains. However, you do think they would have had a decent drainage system for the village.
  8. Ex=actly, you can understand why theres a big fuss. It looks like it has been partially abandoned even before the games started. I had better accomodation than that when I was up at an inn in Cambodia last fall.
  9. Its one snowball after another for Delhi isn't it ? New Delhi: The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) has presented photo evidence of a stray dog jumping on a bed in the Games Village. The CGF now wants all stray dogs to be removed from the Village site. CNN-IBN has access to the details of the meeting between the delegates and the organisers of the Commonwealth Games, where the delegates raised questions about the unfinished projects of the Games Village. The meeting, which took stock of the progress of various unfinished projects, also deliberated on the shortcomings pointed out by Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) President Michael Fennell about the Games village, said top officials. Fennell said that the final preparations for the Village have been a concern since the federation visited the residential zone on September 15. He condemned the Games village and reports quoted Fennell as saying that the athletes' village is seriously compromised. Moreover, delegates from England and Scotland say they saw workers sleeping on beds meant for players A Canadian delegate has said the external parts of the towers were full of "rubbish" and exposed wires posed a risk. While, delegates from England and Scotland say they saw workers sleeping on beds which are meant for players. But the Organising committee of the Games does not seem too worried. They held a news conference on Tuesday evening and claimed there were no major concerns. "We are confident of completing the cleaning of the towers in the Games Village. We have recieved a letter from Fennel about his concerns. We understand the concerns of the member countries but the situation is under control," said Oranizing Commmittte General Secretary Lalit Bhanot. "We are looking into all the concerns and it will be solved before the arrival of the athletes, " said Bhanot. I would pay big money to see that photo. Also, it just goes to show you, the Western media isn't the only one slamming the games. Better than the Beijing games ? I don't think so, not a long shot. http://ibnlive.in.com/news/cwg-shocker-stray-dog-found-on-athlete-bed/131446-3.html?from=tn
  10. C'mon who ever gave Hambantota a chance of beating the Gold Coast ? Calling a David-Goliath battle would an understatement. No matter how much Hambantota assures the CWF that everything will be fine and ready in time, the Delhi tag is going stuck with them like glue. Does the average American differentiate Slovakia and Slovenia ? No, they don't and its the same for CWF members voting. They're not going to differentiate Sri Lanka and India. If Delhi, the Indian Capital can't get everything on time, what can make the voters assues that some second-rated Sri Lankan city can do it ? Anyway, back to the topic. I can see the games being postponed and pushed back but not cancled. The next week is be really crucial. Although, I have to add, after everything that has happened Delhi is just a nail away in closing that coffin that is the Commonwealth Games 2010. In short, one more hurdle like this and the games are in really deep sh!t.
  11. Its disease that is rampant thoughout the cyberworld. The disease of the Patriot. Defending your country even though you know you're at the screwed end. The Russians and Ukrainians do that what someone criticises their Eurovision entry, james and his nigerian posse did that for Abuja's 2014 bid and now the Indians are doing that for Delhi, we saw that for Rio to a certain extent, we've seen that all so many times...
  12. I think we'll see a Montreal-like run-up, where workers were laying the new turf on the day of the opening ceremony.
  13. I think the runup to these games have been nothing but bad. If India is really intending to uses these games as a coming out party like Beijing's, then they really far for it. Also I think the bad pubilicity has also really squashed India's goal of a future Olympic bid similar to how Cairo's tail got bitten during the 1991 All-Africa Games.
  14. Its not bad that for Singapore, six medals is our best performance in any Olympic Games after all, mind you ! Besides we're not the worst Olympic host of all time, the Japanese won 3 medals in Sapporo (1 of Each) and the Yugoslavs won just 1 silver in Sarejevo. And its worth mentioning the most of Americans are actually part of the the US "B" team.
  15. hi-fived TOM DALEY yesterday at the 3m Springboard Finals !
