They also bought souveniers for their loved ones back home.”I have come here to buy something for my wife. I will rather choose an Indian style saree or Salwar suit,” said a Kenyan athlete.Even the international zone which houses recreational facilities like cafe, stores, bar, restaurant, discotheques, games parlours and hair cut salon had a few visitors. Many others were trying to get confirmations of their departure tickets.Only about 5-6 players were seen practicing in the training area.The 12-day long sporting event featuring 17 sports disciplines like archery, cycling, gymnastics, swimming, boxing and shooting will conclude on Thursday.Security personnel also seemed to be in a slight relaxing mood as there were fewer visitors to come to the Village today unlike other day.last_img read more
