MLC Gymnastics gives us some tidbits:
The team arrived in Delhi last night after a four hour stop over in Dubai and some shopping. It was 33 degrees and humid when they arrived. The team had to wait an additional 3 hours to wait for the Nigerian team so were late to the village.The team is on its way to its first training session right now. They were in too late last night to do any training so did a short physical program and stretch in the apartment lounge. The transport is not up and running yet - so they are taking cars to training today.

MAG hopeful Luke Wiwatowski is profiled here.
"I’m a bit nervous of the competition, it’s my first big multi-sports competition," Wiwatowski said. He said athletes would have to get used to a lot of media reporting on gymnastics at the Games. "Gymastics is not a big sport in Australia,’’ he said. Of the negative reports about security and hygiene at the games, Wiwatowski said: "I have not heard anything that would stop me from going."
