Singapore: The chaotic build-up to the Delhi
Commonwealth Games might have left some participating nations
jittery but Singapore is not one of them and remains committed
to sending its 68 athletes for the October 3 to 14 event.

The attack on a tourist in the Indian capital has not
unsettled the Singaporeans, who would also have 34 officials
in their delegation.

"We are advised to participate in the games as of now,"
an official at the Singapore National Olympic Council told
reporters.

"Singapore sportsmen have prepared for the Games and they
would want to have an opportunity to see how they can
perform," the local media quoted chef-de-mission Annabel
Pennefather as saying.

But the Ministry said it was closely monitoring the
situation in the Indian capital and would continue to do so in
the run-up to the Commonwealth Games following the shooting
incident, which left two Taiwanese tourists injured.
