Colombo Express,

See how 'napstersl' has credited the image to the source with a link back: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...5#post62483555

You need to do the same when you use photos from other sites.

LOL nice first post!

That said crediting other peoples work is a serious issue (due to copyright), so thanks for the reminder! Also welcome to SSC! Are you seriously the SLC Mod? If so, please tell us these stadiums will be ready by 2011. Weve already seen what happens when you leave construction to the last minute (Im sure we all know what Im talking about!)

I have indeed passed school (unlike you it seems, by the fact you are very insecure about people needing to be 'educated'). I never had anything against Indians, although you are making me think the others were right. You need to calm down and see this situation from a world perspective.

Not really, a ceiling just collapsed in an arena. Also there have been reports of dogs jumping on beds and exposed wires in the athletes village. Also people have been crapping inside the athletes village! As such it is totally related to the CWG. However unlike you im a realist and Ill admit so far the main venues do look in good shape. I also hope that Delhi stages a good Commonwealth Games. I dont wish any ill will upon other, unlike you it seems.

Yeah I have seen you Sri Lankans how good friends you are to Indians....anyways thats a different issue..!!!

However , I stand right when I say you need to get educated more.....Its not the CEILING that has collapsed its just a 3X3 ceiling tile that has come down which stands on a 1 inch channel...so thats not even close to being serious....

thats why I sd ....ehhhrrr...Its not even your fault...Its INDIAN MEDIA who are fcuk shits ...they are indeed proven worst media in the world...they have made a mountain out of a very very small issue....pathetic they are...

AGAIN I say all venues are ready and in good shape...

Yeh I suppose we are all taking stuff from the media, which in this world takes a small issue, and exaggerates it. I suppose thats how they make money! Anyway as Ive stated before I hope the games runs well for you guys! And I apologise for anything I said which may have offended you/or others (including the initial joke about 'quality work being exposed'). And Ill disregard anything youve said. Hopefully we can start on a fresh page!

The pictures are rare to find and most people in this forum dont live anywhere near the stadiums (with the exception of Premadasa) so I doubt theyll be many pics soon, unless SLC provides them.

Also continuing on with the CWG theme..

Although Hambantota more than likely wont get the 2018 games, some people overseas seem to be against a Hambantota bid due to rumoured Chinese influence. This relationship was reported in Australian newspapers. Is this actually true?

China threat to Gold Coast games

China is looming as an unlikely threat to the Gold Coast’s bid for the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Many considered the Gold Coast a certainty for the event when it emerged the only competing bid was from the small southern Sri Lankan city of Hambantota.

It may boast a population of about 11,000 - with 525,000 in the district - but the port city of Hambantota, situated on the shipping route between the Suez Canal and the Malacca Straits, is becoming increasingly strategically important in the region.

The Chinese have invested millions - if not billions - in recent years building infrastructure such as a sea port, and now there are fears the non-Commonwealth country could prove very influential in determining which city hosted the 2018 Games.

Gold Coast Mayor Ron Clarke said Hambantota posed a serious threat to Queensland’s chances.

“China is supporting them and China has got lots of money to build new facilities and they have provided facilities and financial assistance to a lot of Commonwealth countries, particularly in Africa,” Cr Clarke said.

“So if they want to call in their charge, then no matter how it appears on the surface, that could have an influence on votes.”

The influence of China has also been noted by Gold Coast 2018 bid chief executive Mark Peters, who said he was taking Hambantota’s bid very seriously.

“We’re respecting their bid - there’s always that question about what does that Chinese investment mean for the bid, but no-one has the answers to those questions,” he said.

“This is not a lay down misere - you see what’s happening in cricket at the moment, where suddenly there are different influences playing out.

“We’re in a much more political world than we’ve ever been.”

Mr Peters said 71 nations would cast their votes to determine the successful candidate city, which could play into Sri Lanka’s hands.

“The fact is that’s their vision is to recreate their country after the civil wars and the tsunami,” he said.

“They have a very strong legacy argument that could go over strongly with some of the African and Caribbean countries.”

Foreign policy expert Keith Suter said it was plausible China would seek to build on its sphere of influence by offering behind-the-scenes support to the Sri Lankan bid.

But Beijing would be careful not to be seen to work against Australia.

“Ron [Clarke] is right, China is now the single most important investor in Africa, but usually has different sorts of agendas,” he said.

“It’s not out to make life difficult for the Australians.”

However, Dr Suter said China already had a strong relationship with Australia, while its relationship with Sri Lanka needed more work.

“The Sri Lankans would say to the Chinese, ‘use your influence where you’re investing in order to help ensure our bid when it comes to the vote’,” he said.

“The problem is that Australia is already seen to be hosting a lot of sporting events, so Beijing may take the view that the Australians won’t mind losing out on the Gold Coast because they get so many other things.

“If the Australian government can counteract that impression by saying to the Chinese that we regard hosting the Commonwealth Games as being very significant indeed and we would regard it as a gross loss of face if we were to lose the bid, then it puts the Chinese in a real dilemma.”

Hui Feng, research fellow at the University of Queensland’s School of Political Science and International Studies, said Beijing’s original intention in Hambantota was to make strategic infrastructure investments.

“It is more likely that the Sri Lankan authorities and the local government would like to further expand the reputation of the town by bidding for the Games by diverting part of the fund from the Chinese investment, and Beijing did not feel compelled to oppose this,” he said.

Dr Feng said the investment was part of China’s “grand strategy” to establish itself as the major player in Asian and African developing countries.

Dr Suter said the new port in Hambantota was also driven by internal Sri Lankan politics.

“The reason for that is that Trincomalee, which is in the north, is in a Tamil-dominated area, so the Sri Lankan government in Colombo wants to develop this alternative port in case of further problems,” he said.

For the Gold Coast, Mr Peters said all the city can do is put in its best bid.

“What influence China has, we don’t know and we can’t lose sleep over it,” he said.

“We just know we can run the Games and they’ll be a very good Games in a friendly, safe environment and that’s the message we will push.”

A decision on the 2018 Commonwealth Games host city will be made on November 11 next year, Brisbane Times reports.
