Melbourne, Victoria gives tips to CWG 2010

Premier of Victoria, John Brumby called on Suresh Kalmadi, the Chairman of Organising Committee of Commonwealth Games 2010 here on Saturday.

Brumby during his visit met the organising committee officials and reviewed the progress of various stadiums and infrastructure projects coming up for the Commonwealth Games. Brumby also shared his experience of holding such sports events.

Melbourne, Victoria hosted the 2006 Commonwealth Games and it was the largest sporting event to be staged in the city after the 1956 Summer Olympics in terms of the number of teams competing, athletes competing, and events held.

Brumby on this occasion on Saturday also wrote a note on the partnership between Melbourne and New Delhi.

Preparations are on in New Delhi for hosting the 2010 Commonwealth Games. Delhi had bagged the games after beating the Canadian city Hamilton in the bid for the games.

Earlier, Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) president Mike Fennell has requested an urgent meeting with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh over the slow pace of work ahead of next year's New Delhi games.

But Union Sports Minister Manohar Singh Gill has expressed confidence that the venues would be ready after visiting the stadiums.

The 2010 Commonwealth Games will be India's first major international sports event after the 1982 Asian Games. New Delhi hosted the inaugural Asian Games in 1951 and again in 1982
