CWG brand ambassador to be announced next week

Commonwealth Games Organizing Committee Secretary General Lalit Bhanot said that the brand ambassador for the October 3-14 event will be announced by the end of next week.

"We have a list of names prepared and we will be announcing it by next week." Bhanot said.

Archery Association of India President V K Malhotra had proposed the name of Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan, who was also the face of Asian Games in 1982, as the brand ambassador but the Organising Committee rejected the proposal.

In fact, Suresh Kalmadi, Chairman of CWG 2010 Organising Committee, made it clear that face of the Delhi Games would not be an actor but a sportsperson.

"Brand Ambassador for the Games will be a young sports personality," Kalmadi had said in a press conference last month.

Names of sportspersons like Vijender Singh and Mary Kom have been doing the rounds as possible contenders.

Vijender won bronze medal for India in 2008 Beijing Olympics, while Mary Kom have been a four-time World Champion.
