Island Learns Valuable Lessons from Games in Delhi

Lessons Learnt Will be Implemented into the Organisation of Commonwealth Youth Games 2011.

With the curtain coming down on the Commonwealth Games in Delhi yesterday attention will now shift to the Isle of Man, with under a year to go until they host the Youth Games.

Delhi came in for heavy criticism from the world’s press for seemingly not being ready for the athletes, against all odds however they seem to have pulled it off.

It’s anticipated there will be a full turn out of all the Commonwealth Countries for next year’s Games.

The Bowl Stadium is set to be the focal point of the games, hosting the opening ceremony and the Rugby sevens competitions, work is progressing well on that development and they expect to be finished well within the deadline.

It was the athlete’s village that drew the largest number of complaints from the competing countries; the Island however will be doing it slightly differently organising accommodation for the teams in the many hotels on the Island.

Chairman of the Organising Committee Geoff Karran told 3FM that the pressure is now on, and they will be working very hard over the coming year to ensure the games are a major success next September.
