Spectators queue to enter Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium to attend the XIX Commonwealth Games opening ceremony in New Delhi on October 3, 2010. The Games are due to open on the evening of October 3 with a glittering opening ceremony that organisers hope will erase memories of a shambolic run-up to the event. The Games, in which about 5,000 athletes will compete over 11 days of sport, have teetered on the brink of collapse in recent weeks over shabby accommodation, untested venues and a host of other health and security fears.
