Simons & Douglas in CGF General Assembly

CGF Vice Patron, HRH Prince Edward
Bermuda Olympic Association President Judy Simons and Acting Secretary General Stanley Douglas were in attendance as South Africa were warned that they have less than two months to meet a series of conditions or Durban will be stripped of the 2022 Commonwealth Games.

Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) President Louise Martin told the General Assembly that South African officials must fulfill its contractual obligations by November 30th or they will lose the event.

Durban were awarded the Games at the last CGF Assembly in September 2015 but have so far failed to sign the Host City contract, establish an Organising Committee, confirm the underwriting arrangements as per contractual requirements or make any payments to the CGF.

"This historic decision awarded the Games to Africa for the first time - an inspiring and important moment for our Commonwealth sporting fraternity," Martin told delegates.

"I must state clearly, as has been reaffirmed this week, that we all remain committed to ensuring that Durban 2022 will be a great success.

"As you know, the award to Durban was based on a number of conditions which were to be achieved within a specified period."
