Those are bad enough.
But the worst thing of all is the prospect of not having a decent toilet to go on.
Now you may think it sounds all soft and prissy for our athletes to object to a lack of proper plumbing. But if you are going to travel to India the one thing you want to have handy is a good crapper. Especially when you're an athlete trying to perform at your peak.
Thankfully for these "pampered" athletes (so-called by many in the media, who have never tried to perform at peak without access to running water or a decent bog), it seems the structural collapse of the actual games venues may be the final nail in the coffin.
A part of the false ceiling at the weightlifting venue for the Commonwealth Games collapsed this afternoon, India media report.If I were an athlete I think that would probably be the last straw for me.
The ceiling collapsed at the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium.
So far there have been no reports of injury.
It follows the failure of a pedestrian over-bridge yesterday outside the stadium.
