Eight Cameroon athletes go missing at Commonwealth Games

  • Commonwealth Gamesf Federation chief executive David Grevemberg right claimed they were monitoring the issue after it was reported that five athletes from Cameroon had gone missing

According to the BBC, press attache, Simon Molombe reported the "desertion" adding that the missing athletes were last seen at different times on Monday and Tuesday.

There are speculations that some of the athletes could be deliberately "missing" to avoid the problems back home.

Although the Australian Border Force has been informed, the athletes are not yet in breach of their visa conditions.

The Games have welcomed more than 6,600 athletes and team officials from 71 Commonwealth nations and territories to the Gold Coast and event cities Brisbane, Cairns and Townsville, to share in the celebration of sport, entertainment and culture.

The athletes - Fotsala Simplice, Fokou Arsene, Ndzie Tchoyi Christian, Yombo Ulrich, Ndiang Christelle, Minkoumba Petit David, Fouodji Arcangeline Sonkbou and Matam Matam Olivier Heracles - left the designated competitors' village on the Gold Coast this week. "It's not a surprise", Beattie said. "We have no idea which direction they headed in". There were no worries this kind of thing might happen.

"We have solicited the Commonwealth Games Association from India to leave Australia on the principal flights accessible". "We continue to cooperate with the police". This breakfast will give me the opportunity to congratulate numerous New Zealand athletes participating in the Games.

Queensland Commonwealth Games Minister Kate Jones said that the Australian Federal Police "are keeping a watching brief on these athletes".

A statement said testimony from an Australia Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) investigator was "credible", and cast doubt on comments from the two athletes.

Ulunma Nwanaga, a gold medallist at the 2015 All Africa Games, who is representing Nigeria at the ongoing Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, on Thursday, said that she tried her best in her event. "And if they are thinking of doing anything other, I would encourage them not to".

The Cameroonian athletes on the Gold Coast also have the right to apply for asylum.

Two Indian athletes were banned from the Commonwealth Games on Friday and ordered to leave Australia "on the first flight available" after needles were discovered in their room at the athletes village.
