The Commonwealth Games have been plagued by problems for weeks, most significantly at the athletes' village, which was described as uninhabitable last week. But competitors have been moving in by the hundreds as the opening ceremony nears.
"The village is fantastic. The rooms are brilliant," Walsh said. "The lounges are the most spacious I think we've probably ever had in a world sports games. We've settled in and made it our home for the next two weeks."
In a continued focus on security at the event, the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade said Wednesday it continues to receive reports of possible terrorist threats in India and issued an updated warning to travelers heading to the games.
"There is a high risk of terrorist attack in New Delhi," the department said on its website. "Since 2000, there have been at least 14 major terrorist attacks in New Delhi on locations such as markets, train stations and other public places. These attacks have caused hundreds of deaths and injuries."
