STEVE Moneghetti believes the Commonwealth Games' status as a major event on the world sporting calendar remains secure."I have complete confidence in the future of the Commonwealth Games."Moneghetti says he is frustrated by the negativity about the Commonwealth Games after the Delhi experience.He believes too much emphasis has been placed on the build-up to Delhi, when there were questions about the quality of venues and security.Moneghetti said although the pre-Games negativity had affected the brand, the brand did not belong to the Delhi organising committee."It's completely separate.''He said Glasgow had the challenge of rebuilding the brand for the 2014 Games, but he was confident this would be achieved.The gold medallist in the marathon at the 1994 Commonwealth Games, Moneghetti was on the pulse of the sporting extravaganza as chef de mission of the Australian team his first time in the role.Moneghetti said the significance of any sporting event that attracted athletes from 71 nations could not be denied.He said that despite the growth in major international sporting events, the Commonwealth Games remained one of the most recognisable.Moneghetti said athletes in a wide range of sports had much greater access to international competition than he had when he ran in his first Commonwealth Games in 1986.He said Australians and athletes across the Commonwealth identified immediately with the Games"It's clearly defined. It's an event for Commonwealth nations held every four years."Only the Olympic Games are bigger for most."For some athletes, the Commonwealth Game are the biggest," Moneghetti said.He said for many athletes, Delhi would be the first and only time they represented Australia."Their experience will be long-lasting.''Moneghetti said it was the duty of all athletes who took part in the Games to spread the positivity that was created by the experience.IN THE COURIER NEXT WEEK: Steve Moneghetti talks about his Delhi Commonwealth Games experience as Australian chef de mission.
