October 15, 2010

They are in addition to the 4,000 already distributed and the condoms available from more than 2,000 bright red machines throughout the city. The athletes are being supplied condoms by NACO, a division of India's Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. The concern with the athletes' health drew praise from Mike Fennell, president of the Commonwealth Games Federation. "It shows that there is use of condoms and I think that is a very positive story. Athletes are being responsible," he said.
