TIMBUKTU: Athletes will come down hard on officials who have not performed.
The athletes issued warning letters to officials for failing to keep their promises, pledges or meeting KPIs during the recent Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast.

"What they say often does not translate into reality. When you take up a post, you have to perform."
The athlete added discipline and respect are important but "they work both ways."
