NZ to decide on games participation

New Zealand will decide within 24 hours whether it will attend the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi, though its team manager Dave Currie says last minute attempts to bring facilities up to scratch were "like trying to stop the Titanic."

The New Zealand Olympic Committee was due to meet Friday to receive a report from its president Mike Stanley and secretary general Barry Maister who have just returned from the Indian capital. Stanley described the state of the athletes' village as "tremendously disappointing".

New Zealand has delayed the arrival of its athletes by two days to allow organizers time to improve standards in the village.
