"Further to the send-off function of the Indian CWG contingent held today on 22.03.2018, I have had a telephonic discussion with Mr Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, Hon'ble Union Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports (Independent Charge) regarding the required extra officials travelling with the Indian Contingent", Batra said.

However, Indian Olympic Association (IOA) president Narinder Batra said that in case TTFI drops Ghosh, the CWG federation won't allow any replacement.

The Royal Australian Mint is also releasing a limited edition Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Coin Collection album that will be available exclusively at Woolworths for $15, while stocks last.

A former Nigeria coach Adegboye Onigbinde has charged the Super Eagles to use the friendly matches against Poland and Serbia to make statement that they are up to the task of going far at this year's World Cup in Russian Federation. "I don't know why there is so much of noise from the government unnecessarily". They are the ones who are using the public money, " Batra remarked. I am also happy to note that there are four para-athletes who qualified for the Games. There is a 33 percent quota and beyond that if there is a requirement, such officials can travel and the expenses will be borne by the respective NSFs.

"They're so good as making it as good as it can be for the athletes in terms of nutrition, accommodation and the holding camp which are so important for the preparation".

Hynd is quoted by BBC Sport as saying: "My recent re-classification in my main swimming events from S8 to S9 has come as huge shock to me, having not previously been near to an S9 classification in all my years of competing". For the present CWG, we have 222 Athletes participating, hence the permitted officials with the contingent will be 74. These days in every sport you don't need only the coaches but you need managers, doctors, physios and masseurs. He said the ministry should learn from the L Sarita Devi incident during the 2014 Asian Games where the boxer did not have any manager to fall back on after getting a raw deal in her semifinal loss. The chief coach had to supervise MC Mary Kom's bout.

Batra, who has been at loggerheads with the ministry over the Khelo India programme, said the ministry was needlessly pruning down the list. You blame the federation for every wrong step, but how many (SAI) Sports Authority of India officials are going? If our performance goes down, the sports ministry should stand up and take responsibility.
