    What a shambles! Looks like 3-1 on that most countries that are not desperate for medals may well pull out.

    Disgrace for India.

    its value as a major tournament has been going down since the 90s.

    to be fair the site never said when those photos were taken.. not defending them but still.

    "Westerners have "different standards" of hygiene" says an indian 'senor' official. for me the defence is worse than the rooms not being ready. clearly not fit to hold the games with officials like this. at least they've already got the infrastructure in place before hosting the cricket world cup.

    Agreed Darvs...

    Some of the worlds top athletes compete in these games. Bolt for example, is the world record holder over 100m, and it's likes of him that schedule to compete. Not only him, but many world record holders. Just because USA isn't there doesn't mean it doesn't matter........ well in fact it matters more........ cos they DON'T OWN A GAMES THAT SAYS USA IS BEST.

    It's a complete and utter shame for athletes, if you've even been one, and not a MacDonalds burger eating champion, that they have scheduled and have been let down like kites with cut strings.

    Let's make a RHP Olympics........... Gold medal for longest ban and let back?

    I have SLIVER...... on a sliver snake plate. }
