Hooper calls for end of Com Games war of words

Commonwealth Games Federation chief executive Mike Hooper has called on Suresh Kalmadi, the chief organizer of New Delhi 2010, to stop verbally attacking him and instead focus on ensuring the event is ready on time.
Hooper and CGF president Mike Fennell are to sit down with Kalmadi in London on Wednesday for talks on speeding up work on venues. The games start Oct. 3.
Two weeks ago, Kalmadi said Hooper was "of no use" and had been an "impediment" in the buildup of the games.
Hooper dismissed Kalmadi's "tirade" Tuesday, but says he is not at war with him and wants them all to focus on producing a top quality games.
