      Steffensen ‘to boycott CW Games’

      SYDNEY: Australia’s reigning Commonwealth 400-metre champion John Steffensen will boycott next month’s New Delhi games because of a dispute with Athletics Australia, reports said on Thursday. Steffensen, 28, who won the 400m and 400m relay at the 2006 Melbourne Games, said he he wants to expose the “bullying, egotism and outdated approach” of the national governing body. “This is the toughest decision I’ve ever had to make but I want people to realise this is more than another headline, more than someone creating controversy,” Steffensen said.
