Singapore committed to Delhi CWG participation

September 21, 2010 15:44 IST

The chaotic build-up to the Delhi Commonwealth Games might have left some participating nations jittery but Singapore is not one of them and remains committed to sending its 68 athletes for the October 3 to 14 event.

The attack on a tourist in the Indian capital has not unsettled the Singaporeans, who would also have 34 officials in their delegation.

"We are advised to participate in the games as of now," an official at the Singapore National Olympic Council said.

"Singapore sportsmen have prepared for the Games and they would want to have an opportunity to see how they can perform," the local media quoted chef-de-mission Annabel Pennefather as saying.

But the Ministry said it was closely monitoring the situation in the Indian capital and would continue to do so in the run-up to the Commonwealth Games following the shooting incident, which left two Taiwanese tourists injured.
