The 2010 Indian Commonwealth Games Committee has added a final sporting event to this years games. Not content with the usual British sports the committee has decided to add a 'spot the spectator' element to each sport.This has been a decision made in the first few days of the Commonwealth Games

Speaking earlier today the chairman of the Games, Mala Bolamie, talked about this new initiative. "With so few people turning up to watch sports we had to do something about this drastic situations. Many people believe we should give away tickets but this is India, not some third world backward country. So we have decided to invent a new sport. Prior to the sport starting each competitor must pick a seat number and if your seat is sat in by one of the 34 spectators then you gain a point for your country. The beauty of this sport is every athlete is involved and the winning country will be declared at the closing ceremony."

At this stage New Zealand is lying in forth place in this event with India the run away early leader. India are so far ahead there have been rumours of match fixing but at this stage there has been no official inquiry.
