Ex-400 metres runner Milkha Singh, India's best known track athlete, former All-England badminton champion Pullela Gopichand and long jumper Anju Bobby George are among those who have confirmed their participation.

The route will be shortened from that planned due to security concerns following protests against China's response to Tibet. - Reuters
