If you were an athlete

Would you really like to live in an apartment at the Commonwealth games after a suspension footbridge collapsed nearby. Seems to have been suspended with Post Office string. The whole show has got to be fixed in a couple of weeks.

It would take Jeff Capes to drag me there.

Even Usain Bolt has chucked up his place to go along with a few other notables!

It will depend on the money available.

These people are all professionals.

These people are all professionals.

The builders or the athletes?

india is famous for being dirty, chotic and unhygenic why on earth did they choose to hold the games there?

with so many nations in the commonwealth there must have been dozens of better locations.

A half-wit athlete was being interviewed last night and he was emotionally whining that the accommodation was disgusting...well, may I remind the moron that this is how over 90% of the population live in India so he ought to have done some research before accepting money to ponce around a track that has cost a lot of money.

chaotic and unhygienic"

It is also famous for having an advanced civilisation and culture when our British ancestors were prancing around painting their backsides blue.

For having a rich cultural life when we were still learning how to build wattle and daub huts.

For being well advanced in many branches of science while we still thought the earth was flat.

Perhaps they can round up a load of Fakirs and hold everything up using levitation. However can't help feeling a tad of corruption has invaded the proceedings, using substandard materials and the like. That assumes they have a standard to be subbed, so to speak.
