Humidity of Mangaluru had an impact on the performance of athletes:

The time scheduled for the sports was impractical for the athletes. The humidity of this place affected the performance of athletes.  It would have been better to organize such a sports event here in the month of November or December opined the sports technical association members speaking to the media.

Meager audience:

Meager number of audience was seen during the sports. National Sports organized here in 1987 witnessed huge crowd when Television was less, said one of the members of the organizing committee.
