Video: Delhi is gearing up to host world’s second largest sporting event. Apart from developing facilities for national and international athletes in areas such as training, accommodation and catering, the major work to organize the Games is the responsibility of the Organizing Committee Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi.

shera_mascotShera, mascot of the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi, is the most visible face of the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi. His name comes from the Hindi word Sher – meaning tiger. Shera truly represents the modern Indian. He is an achiever with a positive attitude, a global citizen but justifiably proud of his nation’s ancient heritage, a fierce competitor but with integrity and honesty. Shera is also a ‘large-hearted gentleman’ who loves making friends and enthusing people to ‘come out and play’.

In Indian mythology, the tiger is associated with Goddess Durga, the embodiment of Shakti (or female power) and the vanquisher of evil. She rides her powerful vehicle – the tiger – into combat, especially in her epic and victorious battle against Mahishasur, a dreaded demon.

Shera embodies values that the nation is proud of: majesty, power, charisma, intelligence and grace. His athletic prowess, courage and speed on the field are legendary. He is also a reminder of the fragile environment he lives in and our responsibility towards the protection of his ecosystem.

The logo of the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi is inspired by the Chakra, the national symbol of freedom, unity and power. Spiralling upwards, it depicts the growth of India into a proud, vibrant nation. Her billion people coming together to fulfil their true destinies. India`s journey from tradition to modernity, her economic transformation into a super power… reaching out to the world and leading the way, even as she enthusiastically embraces all the 71 CGA nations and territories of the Commonwealth to become one and host the best ever Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

The colour palette for the Delhi 2010 look programme combines two of the distinctive colours of the Delhi 2010 Emblem with the official colours of the Commonwealth Games.

Green:The colour that signifies life, energy and high spirits also represents the fact that Delhi 2010 will be the firstever Green Games. With a spring in your step, face every challenge and overcome hurdles with radiance and gusto. Combining the stable and calming aspects of blue with the mystical qualities of pink, this colour satisfies the need for reassurance, while adding a hint of mystery and excitement. Blue: Commonwealth Games colours, representing the ‘Trinity of Values’ that symbolise the games; unifying Humanity (Red) giving all athletes a chance to realise their Destiny (Yellow) and promoting Equality (Blue). Pink: This colour has also been introduced to the palette adding an element of surprise and luxury to the Games look programme. It plays to the crowd and truly reflects India in all its resplendent glory.

XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi-Environmental ProgrammeXIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi-Environmental Programme: Globally, climate change is threatening the security of eco-systems, food and water. There is an increasing and indiscriminate consumption of natural resources such as food, water, energy, materials, etc, and at a much faster rate than the planet can replenish. This is resulting in a Sustainability Gap due to the consumption footprint.

Global sporting events also have a large ecological and consumption footprint. This is reflected in substantial material requirements driven by construction activities such as energy requirements, water requirements and waste generation. Hence the Organising Committee Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi has taken upon itself the mission to host Green Games by using effective carbon emission mitigation, reduction and offset techniques. This strategic intention has been initiated for supporting environmental activities by UNEP related to planning and staging of the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi. UNEP has agreed to provide necessary technical support for the Games.

The construction and renovation of the venues for the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi is being undertaken keeping in mind the Green vision of the Games. Green initiatives for verticals such as land, energy, water, waste and air have been taken to reduce the carbon emissions from the Games related activities.

Green Sensitisation for XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi: Under the Green Games initiatives OC CWG Delhi 2010 will conduct large-scale outreach events that would educate the masses. Through Green Sensitisation, OC CWG Delhi 2010 will leverage this opportunity into a mega green awareness programme. Sensitisation programmes, that will be implemented to help make a difference.

    Commonwealth Games events could be cancelled over safety fears

    Mike Hooper, the chief executive of the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF), revealed that they still have to receive confirmation from the Organising Committee that the Athletes Village or any of the venues are structurally safe and that they were not prepared to take the risk of using them until they receive the necessary documentation and guarantees that they would not place anyone in danger if events are held there.

    Australia warns of high risk of terrorism during Commonwelath Games in New Delhi India

    Australia today said there was a “high risk of terrorism” during next month’s Commonwealth Games in New Delhi, in a stark travel warning after gunmen wounded two tourists outside a famous mosque.

    The foreign affairs department urged visitors to pay close attention to their safety “at all times” during the Games, after a tour bus was sprayed with sub-machinegun fire at Delhi’s Jama Masjid. “There is a high risk of terrorist attack in New Delhi,” the department said in an updated bulletin. “Australians in New Delhi should be aware that the Commonwealth Games will be held in a security environment where there is a high risk of terrorism,” it added.

    Two Taiwanese tourists were wounded, one seriously, after attackers on a motorbike opened fire Sunday, heightening security fears for the October 3-14 Games involving 7,000 athletes and officials, and fans from all over the world. Read more at Channel News Asia

    Nations Shocked at Athletes Village for Commonwealth Games 2010 in New Delhi

    Commonwealth Games Federation president Michael Fennell on Tuesday demanded immediate action from the Indian government to fix what he called a “seriously compromised” athletes’ village in New Delhi. Advance parties from participating nations have been arriving in the Indian capital ahead of the troubled October 3-14 multi-sport Games and been “shocked” at what they have seen, he said in a statement.

    “Many issues remain unresolved and as such last night (Monday) I wrote to the Indian cabinet secretary, expressing my great concern with the preparedness of the athletes village …,” he said. “Many nations that have already sent their advanced parties to set up within the village have made it abundantly clear that, as of the afternoon of September 20, the Commonwealth Games Village is seriously compromised.”

    New Zealand officials are one of the team delegations already in New Delhi, and officials on Tuesday said that dirty and unhealthy conditions at the village were compromising the entire Games. Chef de mission Dave Currie said large sections of the village were still not ready with the clock ticking to its official opening on Thursday. “The reality is that if the village is not ready and athletes can’t come, the implications are that it’s not going to happen,” Currie told New Zealand commercial radio, referring to the Games as a whole.

    His warning came after Australian and New Zealand officials pointed to concerns about security following a gun attack Sunday in the Indian capital. Fennell said the village was the cornerstone of any Games and athletes deserved the best possible environment to prepare. “The condition of the residential zone has shocked the majority of Commonwealth Games Associations that are in Delhi,” he said. “Despite their attempts to work with the Organising Committee in a constructive manner since arriving on September 15, significant operational matters remain unaddressed.” He said problems had arisen because deadlines for the completion of the village had consistently been missed. “Now, the high security around the site, while vital, is slowing progress and complicating solutions,” he added.

    “Security remains of the utmost importance to the CGF and our advisors continue to monitor the situation. Currently, this matter remains on track. “However, with the village to be officially opened on September 23, timely acceptable solutions to prepare for the arrival of athletes are of paramount importance. “The CGF has asked the cabinet secretary to immediately deploy the necessary resources to fix all the outstanding issues to an acceptable level.”

    Commonwealth Games Federation: Athletes Rooms in Residential Towers Filthy and Uninhabitable

    The chief executive of the Commonwealth Games Federation delivered stinging new criticism about athletes’ accommodation in New Delhi, saying it was “filthy” and “uninhabitable”. “The major issue is the state of them (residential towers),” Mike Hooper told a press conference in the Indian capital less than a fortnight before the Games open on October 3.

    “They’re filthy. You can’t occupy them. They need a deep clean. There’s builders’ dust and rubble in doorways, shower doors the wrong way round, toilets that don’t work,” he added. There was also “excrement in places it shouldn’t be”, referring to problems thought to be the result of thousands of labourers using the toilets in the “certainly uninhabitable” tower blocks. Plumbing and electrical problems typical of new-build buildings also needed resolving urgently, he said.

    Mr Hooper said the CGF had decided to go public with its complaints “to ensure that the athletes get what they deserve” and elevate the issue to the national government.

    He said the Cabinet secretary K.M. Chandrasekhar, India’s most senior bureaucrat, had visited the athletes’ village today to assess the situation for himself. Earlier, the CGF president Michael Fennell put out a statement slamming the lack of preparedness. Mr Fennell demanded immediate action from the Indian government to fix what he called a “seriously compromised” village, saying advance parties from participating nations had been “shocked” at what they had seen.

    The Commonwealth Games Federation president Mike Fennell was to arrive New Delhi on Thursday and had requested a meeting with the prime minister Manmohan Singh, the federation chief executive Mike Hooper said.

    Today, part of a drop ceiling inside the weightlifting venue collapsed.

    Commonwealth Games: Delhi makes frantic effort with a week to go

    Organisers of the Commonwealth Games scrambled to finish facilities and reassure athletes on Sunday amid warnings much work still had to be done in New Delhi just a week before the opening ceremony. National teams arriving at the athletes’ village were greeted by a massive clean-up operation as hundreds of extra staff tackled uncompleted apartments, dirty toilets and piles of builders’ rubbish.

    The Commonwealth Games Federation denied it had failed to supervise Delhi during preparations for the event, which Indian leaders had hoped would be a demonstration of the nation’s recent economic progress. Federation chief executive Mike Hooper on Sunday pinned the blame squarely on Indian officials. Source: Channel News Asia
