Tanzanian team arrives Delhi Commonwealth Games

A contingent from Tanzania arrived for the Commonwealth Games 2010 here on Monday.
Over 1,100 foreign athletes, officials and technical staff from different nations have reached New Delhi for the event.
The African team arrived in the early hours of Monday amid heavy security presence at the airport and police escort vans.

The Indian Government is racing against time to ensure preparations are complete before the opening of the event.

Commonwealth Games Federation President Michael Fennell said on Saturday that despite certain negative trends, there would be full participation by all countries in the Games.

So far all national delegations appear to be attending the Games after pledges from the Indian government that the event would be ready on time.

The Games are due to commence on October 3 and end on the 14th.

India is expecting about two million tourists in New Delhi for the Games, as well as about 10,000 athletes from 71 teams representing 54 Commonwealth member states.
