Asian Cycling Confederation Chief Disappointed With Delhi Velodrome

Asian Cycling Confederation President Hee Wok Cho was so impressed with Delhi's cycling velodrome that he "gushed about it with top officials in the UCI but a little over two years later, he is disappointed with the venue's maintenance," according to the PTI. "The maintenance of the velodrome is disappointing. I am not happy with it. Maintenance is a problem. The electronic display for example is not working. I have conveyed this to the Cycling Federation of India." Another issue he discussed with the CFI "was the problems that the teams from Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan faced in getting visas to India." In fact the latter three "failed to make it to the event." He said, "I feel terribly sorry that entry visas were not granted." But overall, he is "satisfied with the arrangements for the championships," which began on Thursday. Cho said, "This facility is good but needs maintenance. But I am ok with the arrangements overall, they are ok" (PTI, 3/7).
