Few Kiwis for CWG

For the first time in 16 years, New Zealand's Commonwealth Games contingent will feature less than 200 athletes when it lands in Delhi for the 19th edition of the quadrennial extravaganza.

The last time it happened was in the 1994 Victoria Games, which did not have hockey in its list of sports.

The naming of New Zealand's table tennis, tennis and hockey teams brought the total number of competitors for the October 3 to 14 to

193, which is 56 less than the 249 in Melbourne four years ago.

At the 1998 Kuala Lumpur Games New Zealand had 217 athletes, while there were exactly 200 in the 2002 Manchester Games.
