first_imgBeijing Olympic gold medalist and ace shooter Abhinav Bindra is set to launch a high-performance center in Chandigarh which will provide top class training facilities to the athletes for free, India Today has learnt. (Abhinav Bindra blames system for India’s failure to open medals tally)Bindra will launch the company in collaboration with Techno Body, an Italian company. The center will be opened on October 20.India’s high performance athletes can approach Bindra and block a period of time to train. This initiative means Indian athletes would not need to travel overseas any longer. The equipment provided at the center are the same types that Bindra had used in his preparation for the Rio Olympics held in August.Earlier, India’s star athletes travelled abroad to train due to a lack of proper training facilities in the country.

‘Mourinho obsessed with staining his legacy’

first_imgUnder-fire Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is “obsessed” with tarnishing his reputation, according to former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon.The 55-year-old tactician has established a standing as one of the finest coaches in world football, with league titles and European success having been tasted in Portugal, England, Italy and Spain.Mourinho has, however, countered his many highs with a number of lows, with it in his nature to come out fighting when questions are asked of his methods and ability to deliver results. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! He currently finds himself in that position at Old Trafford, after overseeing United’s worst start to a season in 26 years, and Calderon believes it is an inability to steer clear of controversy which will be concerning the Red Devils board.The ex-Madrid supremo, who got a close look at Mourinho during his time at Santiago Bernabeu, told talkSPORT: “Undeniably his track record speaks for itself, it’s the one of a winner and a very successful coach.“And because of that he could have had the football world at his feet, in my opinion.“But it appears he’s obsessed with staining it with so many controversies and problems.“And then he blames the world for everything when he loses. It’s a pity.Jose Mourinho Manchester United 2018-19“His track record is very, very difficult to get and it’s something he is now staining continuously.“I remember the great Alfredo Di Stefano [the Real Madrid legend, former player and coach], he used to tell me that a great coach could never complain about referees, injuries, bad luck or any other circumstance – that was reserves for the mediocres.“That was very self-explanatory about what a great coach must do. It’s clear that Mourinho is having many problems, even I’m sure among his followers.“Maybe they don’t understand what he’s doing or what he’s saying. And on top of that – the results.“When you win, everything can be acceptable. But when you’re losing, and when you’re coaching a team so great as United, then fans can be disappointed and at the start of the season with only three points out of nine – that can be a problem.“I don’t know what the owners think about that, but of course they must be worried.”Mourinho is certainly dividing opinion at present, with former United stars such as Bryan Robson, Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs calling for him to be given more time.Others have questioned his ongoing presence, with Lee Sharpe expecting the Portuguese to be gone by Christmas and Paul Parker suggesting that he is dragging underperforming Red Devils players down with him.last_img read more

India outplayed us in all three departments: Rangana Herath

first_imgSri Lankan stand-in skipper Rangana Herath on Saturday lauded India for their comprehensive 304-run win in the opening Test, saying the visitors were outstanding in all three departments and deserve all the credit.India dismissed Sri Lanka for 245 in their second innings on day 4 to complete a comfortable win and lead the three-match series 1-0.”You can’t be satisfied with a defeat. We bowled badly, fielded badly and batted badly in the first innings. We are a better team than that. We need to find out how we can do better than this moving forward,” said Herath.”When you lose a game you are disappointed. But having said that, all credit to India for the way they played. They played outstanding cricket in all three departments. They deserve all the credit,” he added.Sri Lanka were hurt by the absence of Asela Gunaratne and Herath himself after both picked injuries on the field, reducing the strength of both their batting and bowling line-ups.”Losing Aseala was a massive blow for us and he will be out for eight weeks. He has been scoring lot of runs for us in the last few months. He wasn’t available to bat or bowl and that was a huge blow for us,” he said.”I had swelling because I had fracture three years ago in the same area. About Dinesh Chandimal, there’s no confirmation, but I expect him to play the next game,” added the stand-in skipper.Herath highlighted Shikhar Dhawan’s innings of 190 runs for praise and explained how it took the game away from the hosts.advertisement”We had a few plans for him but we failed to execute. If you take for example we allowed him too much of width. In the first session of the match itself the game started slipping away from us,” he said.”We bounced back well but he had by then got off to a terrific start. Some of our plans went very well but we were not 100 per cent perfect. That’s the reason they went onto post 600 runs in their first innings,” said Herath.Herath did have some criticism for the Galle pitch, which was atypical of the turnings tracks usually on display here.”I told before the game too that this pitch will help batsmen a lot. Having said that, I expected the spinners to come into the equation in the fourth or fifth day. But this wicket didn’t have much help for spinners either.”Our wickets are different from each other. We expect a bit of turn in Galle. But there’s no point in blaming anyone after you lose. The plain truth is that we didn’t play well and we are to be blamed,” said Hearth.Herath, however, outlined the performance of Nuwan Pradeep who picked up career-best 6-132 in the first Indian innings.”I think it was after a long time a fast bowler has taken a five-wicket haul in Galle. There’s so much of burden on spinners when we play in Sri Lanka and Pradeep bowling so well and taking so many wickets will be a huge plus point for us moving forward. He was outstanding in this game and his effort was fantastic,” he signed off.The second Test begins in Colombo on August 3.last_img read more

Djokovic Wins 4th Wimbledon by Beating Anderson in 3 Sets

first_imgLONDON (AP) — Novak Djokovic is back at his best and the Wimbledon champion for a fourth time, grabbing a lead right away against a weary Kevin Anderson in the final and winning 6-2, 6-2, 7-6 (3) on Sunday.Anderson nearly managed to extend the match, holding five set points to force a fourth set. Djokovic held steady, saving all five of those, then was as superior in the tiebreaker as he was most of the sun-drenched afternoon.It is Djokovic’s 13th major trophy, the fourth-highest total in the history of men’s tennis.But it’s also his first in more than two years.During that time, Djokovic struggled with a painful right elbow that eventually required surgery and as his losses accumulated, his ranking fell out of the top 20 for the first time in more than a decade. He grew so frustrated with his form that he spoke about skipping the grass-court circuit.Fortunately for him, he changed his mind.At No. 21, Djokovic is the lowest-ranked Wimbledon titlist since Goran Ivanisevic in 2001.—By HOWARD FENDRICH , AP Tennis WriterNovak Djokovic of Serbia returns the ball to Kevin Anderson of South Africa during the men’s singles final match at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships in London, Sunday July 15, 2018.

Leeds owner defends Myanmar tour: ‘This is about people not governments’

first_img Read more news Leeds United, their Myanmar muddle and football’s most boggling tours Share via Email Leeds are due to face a Myanmar National League All-Star team in Yangon, also known as Rangoon, and the country’s national team in Mandalay next month. This is despite the club being fully aware of the violence that has caused 700,000 of the Rohingya population of Myanmar to flee the country in the last eight months.“I have spent over 10 years living in Asia and Myanmar is a country I have visited on many occasions,” Radrizzani said. “I am aware of the serious issues within the country but I also know that it is a beautiful place filled with incredibly warm and welcoming people. “This was a carefully considered decision and we knew it would be controversial but this is about people not governments. It has never been my intention, nor that of the club, to get involved in a political debate in Myanmar. However, if because of the tour we further highlight the ongoing serious issues in certain areas of the country, then maybe that is a positive thing.”The violence committed against the Rohingya people has centred on the northern Rakhine province where entire villages have been razed and horrific acts of violence committed by the military against men, women and children. Leeds’ tour will be sponsored by AYA, a private Myanmar bank implicated in ethnic cleansing against the Rohingya. But Radrizzani denied there was any financial incentive to the club of playing the matches in Myanmar, also known as Burma. “The club is not receiving any fee to play,” he said. “Rather I see this both as a personal initiative to support local football and a way to introduce the name of Leeds United in the fastest growing country in south-east Asia.”Some Leeds players are understood to be wary of travelling to Myanmar and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office guidance is to “check travel advice before travelling”. The FCO advises against “all but essential travel” in some areas of Myanmar, although not the areas that Leeds will play in. Share on Facebook Leeds United Share on WhatsApp Share on LinkedIn Myanmar Topics Marina Hyde Share on Twitter Share on Pinterest The owner of Leeds United has defended the club’s highly controversial decision to play two post-season friendlies in Myanmar, a country accused of ethnic cleansing and human rights abuses against its Muslim Rohingya minority.Andrea Radrizzani, the Italian businessman who became the full owner of Leeds last year, even suggested the tour may be beneficial in raising awareness of what the United Nations has called a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing”.

Sánchez Udinese Serie A The Chile international set off on foot during his time at Udinese, due to an every day mistake Alexis Sanchez once set off on an improvised 8km run during his time at Udinese, because he locked his keys in his car!The Manchester United attacker, who joined the club from Arsenal in the January transfer window as part of a swap deal involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan, spent his formative years in Italy after joining Udinese at the age of 17.The Chilean struggled initially, however, with the physical demands of Serie A, and was required to bulk up to compete properly.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Part of his training came in somewhat surprising circumstances, however, as Italian journalist Pietro Oleotto explained to the Inside United magazine .“Once, after training, Alexis drove into Udine to do some shopping. But he accidentally locked his keys and mobile phone in his car,” he said.”I’m not sure what most people would have done, but he just ran home. He jogged the 8km from the heart of the city to his house in the hills.”Bemused locals saw him in his club tracksuit running and called us at the paper. It was typical of Alexis to turn the situation into an improvised cross-country run.”Alexis’ first full season at Udinese, the 2008-09 campaign, saw him add an impressive amount of muscle, as he played 32 games in Serie A, scoring three goals and providing two assists.“In his first season, he [Alexis] was skinny and stayed on the right wing a lot,” Oleotto recalls. “The physicality in the penalty area was too much for him. But the team needed him more central, closer to the goal, to make the most of his dribbling.“So he began improving his body and they built him an ad-hoc gym. He worked out for two hours a day after training. I remember seeing him halfway through pre-season training camp and being shocked by how much muscle he had put on.”Alexis would eventually play over 110 times for Udinese, before joining Barcelona for a fee of £23 million in 2011.He spent three years at Camp Nou before his move to Arsenal in 2014 and then swapped Premier League clubs before the close of the January transfer window.

Messi: Another Copa now begins for Argentina

first_imgLionel Messi has declared that “another Copa begins now” for Argentina after seeing them scrape their way into the quarter-finals.An opening defeat to Colombia and disappointing draw with Paraguay had left the Albiceleste sweating on progress to the knockout stage.They were, however, to complete their Group B campaign with a welcome 2-0 victory over Qatar.

CFB Expert Explains 2019 Alabama vs. Clemson Prediction

first_imgClemson and Alabama lines face off during national championship.SANTA CLARA, CA – JANUARY 07: Patrick Phibbs #58 of the Clemson Tigers snaps the ball against the Alabama Crimson Tide in the CFP National Championship presented by AT&T at Levi’s Stadium on January 7, 2019 in Santa Clara, California. (Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)Clemson and Alabama faced off for the national title last season, and there’s a good chance they play a rematch this year. It would be the fifth-straight season the two programs have met, with four of those matchups coming with a national championship on the line.Most outlets have the Tigers ranked No. 1 in the preseason, with Alabama at No. 2. However, noted college football sage Phil Steele has it the other way around.Steele’s college football preview is out, and he put the Crimson Tide in the top spot. Appearing on “3 Man Front” on WJOX in Birmingham yesterday, he broke down why he did that.Basically, Steele like’s Alabama’s defense better than the Tigers’. “I’m gonna go with the overall defense,” Steele said, via 247Sports. “I know the defense didn’t look good in the last outing that Alabama was in. They got shredded for some 482 yards by Clemson, 471 yards by Oklahoma, and 454 yards by Georgia. But they have six returning starters. Last year’s secondary was very inexperienced. This year they’re more experienced. Clemson, meanwhile, defensively does lose four huge guys off that defensive line — all to the NFL and all early-round draft picks. They’re still going to have a good defense. They’re still going to have a good defensive line, but I think Alabama has a little better defense this year than Clemson.”It would be fun to test Steele’s reasoning out on the field in the College Football Playoff.Both teams will be favored in every regular season game they play this year. Clemson’s toughest two-game stretch is probably early on, with a home game against Texas A&M and a road trip to Syracuse in consecutive weeks in September.Alabama’s schedule is even more favorable. November is probably the toughest month, as it features road trips to Mississippi State and Auburn, with a home game against LSU and a cupcake vs. Western Carolina mixed in.It wouldn’t be surprising if both the Tigers and the Tide run the table again.last_img read more

Big worry for college scandal suspects Their codefendants

BOSTON — Parents and coaches co-operating with investigators in the college admissions bribery scandal could spell trouble for those still fighting the charges and lead investigators to new targets.Since authorities arrested dozens of parents and coaches in March, former coaches at the universities of Texas at Austin and Southern California have signed co-operation agreements.A couple who agreed to plead guilty to paying $600,000 in bribes to get their daughters into two California schools also recently revealed they are working with investigators.They could be key witnesses in cases against other defendants.Former federal prosecutor Bradley Simon says their co-operation also likely means there will be a new wave of indictments.Alanna Durkin Richer, The Associated Press read more

PM Christie dismisses Ingrahams allegations of missing funds

first_img Prime Minister Perry Christie is refuting any claims of missing funds from the Ministry of Finance. On Monday night, the former Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham speaking at an FNM Rally in North Abaco, announced that he was aware of some $860,700 missing from the Ministry of Finance.He then questioned how this was possible under the “watchful eyes or not so watchful eyes of the Prime Minister”.However, in a release, Prime Minister and Finance Minister, Perry Christie is calling on Mr.Ingraham to produce evidence of the alleged misappropriation of funds to the ministry or the Commissioner of police, so that it can be investigated thoroughly.Instead the ministry highlighted its knowledge of ongoing investigations into a matter, where an overpayment to a vendor was done. As a result, the incident has been reported to the Auditor General, and steps have been taken to recover the monies, while disciplinary action has been taken against the officer responsible for the overpayment. However, the ministry says the amount missing is not equivalent to the amount Mr.Ingraham alleged is missing.

It ticks the boxes of having plenty of cafes to work from, and being surrounded by stunning mountains and rivers is good for the soul.I’ve been putting off a return trip for years, even though it’s easier to get to now that AirAsia have flights from Bangkok and KL.
