Human Error To Blame For Comm Games Ticket Fail

Human Error To Blame For Comm Games Ticket Fail

Tickets to the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games opening ceremony are still "totally valid" despite being printed with a date error, organisers say.

Queensland woman Tanya Mathers posted a photo of her tickets on Instagram and, after realising the day was wrong, said she would be arriving on "Wednesday just in case it's Thursday".

The Minister for Home Affairs Peter Dutton said there will be constant reviews of the security procedures.

"We can not be complacent".

The technical director however, said that to ensure that Nigeria's image is not tainted before and during the Commonwealth Games, all the athletes would be monitored to ensure that none of them use performance enhancing drug.

England has a strong record in wrestling at the Commonwealth Games having won a total of 63 medals including 5 gold medals.


Defence helicopters and aircraft are set to conduct flights over Gold Coast prior to the Games to ensure they can operate safely in built up areas.

More than 1000 defence personnel will be deployed on the Gold Coast, while AFP officers will work alongside QPS.

Kenya has been allocated only 125 participants in this year's Commonwealth Games. "We can't wait to get out to Australia and for the Games to get underway".

"The Government appreciates the support and understanding of local communities to enable law enforcement agencies and the ADF to conduct vital training and activities in support of QPS".

Police and emergency services held a two-day training exercise earlier this month, with police tactical units, paramedics and firefighters taking part in the drills.
