Five more athletes missing from Commonwealth Games village

Two Athletes Kicked Out Of The Commonwealth Games After Needles Found

After the 2000 Sydney Olympics, more than 100 athletes overstayed, while during the London 2012 Olympics, seven athletes left the village.

Press attache Simon Molombe said officials viewed the vanishing act as "desertion" and that the missing athletes had been reported to Australian police.

Commonwealth Games Federation CEO David Grevemberg confirmed in a statement that Australian authorities are now searching for "one Rwandan and two Ugandan accredited delegates not present in the village".

Games officials said race walker Irfan Kolothum Thodi and triple jumper Rakesh Babu were found to have a syringe in their room in the athletes' village on the Gold Coast.

Commonwealth Games boss Peter Beattie said while the athletes' visas allow them to spend time enjoying Australia, they should return to their home country as scheduled.

Grevemberg said Nsengiyumva along with two Ugandans and a Ghanaian, went missing and that the Police had been alerted.

In the circumstances: The CGF shall issue a strong reprimand to Vikram Singh Sisodia, Namdev Shirgaonker and Ravinder Chaudhry that they and other persons failed to ensure compliance with the No Needle Policy.




Sportscotland chief executive Stewart Harris said: "Once again Team Scotland has delivered on the global stage with a string of sensational performances surpassing our best ever performance at an away Games in the Gold Coast".

'Right now we are anxious about the safety and welfare of the athletes and we are taking this very seriously and monitoring the situation with team Cameroon'.

The 2018 Games are now underway in the Gold Coast in the Australian State of Queensland.

The thing wasn't thought as an anti-doping principle breach, but the India delegation was warned with the CGF there might be repercussions if they violate the guidelines.

"I don't want to be blase. We're organising a sporting event, if there are breaches of visas, they will deal with it".

Cameroon team manager Victor Agbor Nso on Wednesday confirmed weightlifter Olivier Matam and boxers Ndzie Tchoyi and Simplice Fotsala had been due to compete this week but could not be found.
