New Delhi: CWG organising committee secretary general Lalit Bhanot on Thursday said all the venues are complete and they are ready to host not only the next month's Commonwealth Games but also Olympics.

"All the Games venues are ready and the International bodies have also certified that they are fit to host events," Bhanot said.

"There was delay in the construction of these venues but they are now completely ready and are of world class standard. These stadiums can host events like the Olympics and world championships," he added.

Bhanot also hoped that India will improve on its previous performance at Melbourne Games.

"In the Melbourne Games we won 52 medals and secured the fourth position. That was the best Indian tally but this time we hope to get the third spot with around 75 medals," he said.

"In athletics we won two silvers in Melbourne. This year we hope for six to eight medals," he said.
