Commonwealth Games 2010.

The performances of the Athletes during from
April 2010 till the Inter State Athletics Meet held at Patiala in the
beginning of August have been considered for the selection.

In some of the Events, three athletes are selected to compete, but in other
Events only a token participation will be considered for the team. As
there is more than one month to go for the Commonwealth Games, it is
likely that few more Athletes may be inducted and those who do not
maintain their performances, will go out. The final names for the 20
KM Walk will be announced later.
