Commonwealth Games chief caught napping.. OOPS..!!

Commonwealth Games Federation president Mike Fennell has been keeping a hawk's eye on Delhi's preparations for the games. Earlier last month he had raised concerns about India’s preparedness for the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

However he was found napping during a presentation made by the Organising Committee (OC) at the Thyagaraj Stadium here Thursday. During the presentation, Fennell and some delegates were caught on camera dozing off much to the disappointment of the Indian officials.

Fennell has raised questions on the OC’s ability to host the 2010 Commonwealth Games and even asked for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s intervention. He had warned that the Games was heading for a "partial failure" unless the organisers pulled up their socks. Fennell is expected to meet the Prime Minister here on Friday.

With some 110 delegates from 71 Commonwealth countries for federation’s General Assembly slated for Oct 12, Fennell went around the city visiting all the venues and the Games Village. And by the time his convoy of three buses and eight cars came to Thyagaraj Stadium, it seemed that the trip had taken a toll on him.
