SA delegation finds snake in CWG Village room

Just when things seemed to be getting on track, the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games has plunged into a new crisis on Sunday. A snake was found in a room allotted to South African athletes, who are yet to check in, High Commissioner Harris Mbulelo Mejeke told reporters.

On a day when contingents from Malaysia and Botswana also complained about their allotments at the much-maligned Games Village, former athletics great Milkha Singh said they were fussing excessively as Indian athletes get by with sub-standard arrangements abroad.

“I think we are getting dominated by our guests. I have also been to number of countries and there have been times when the arrangements were not very good but we never made such a fuss out of it,” Milkha told media.
