There has been more than just a few leaks in the accommodation at the Delhi Commonwealth games. The organisers have faced strong criticism after stories and pictures of incomplete and unsatisfactory building work at the athletes residence. Pictures of back filled toilets, beds with muddy animal tracks all over it and walls with tiles falling off have been circulated through the world press and apparently the shambles doesn't end there. It is expected to feature in a future ITV series; World Sporting Events from Hell.
The games are meant to begin in October and some athletes and support staff have been arriving today. However some athletes have spoken out and decided not to go after seeing the state of their rooms and that they really couldn't be bothered as they would miss Merlin on BBC1. Of those who have gone, Taff Jones a hammer thrower from Wales said that its not all bad and that these athletes should go round his brother in laws in Swansea and see the state of that place.
In a desperate move to rescue the games, the organisers have arranged expert commonwealth advice and have shipped in Englands Kim Woodburn and Scotlands Aggie Mackenzie. Kim 'n' Aggie will be taking some baking soda, tomato ketchup and toothpaste in an attempt to clean up the mess and make it livable as it was intended.
Since the leak, rumours have been rife as to how such a large profile sporting event could fall into such ruin. Following a private investigation, files and documents are said to have been found in London 2012 headquarters which put the event organisers as chief sponsors of the building works in Delhi. Further memos were found detailing conversations between high profile ministers and Olympic officials stating that the only sure fire way the London 2012 Olympics will 'not be a shambles' is that if the preceding games were 'diabolical' and one to 'forget'. This revelation comes as the true cost of London 2012 is escalating to higher heights which is putting pressure on the organisers to make sure it turns a profit.
What remains of the games in Delhi and the next Olympic games is only to be seen, we can only hope that the action in the stadia is better than the building and build up.
No one from anywhere was available to comment except for my gran who said that it sounds nice dear.
