CWG: Raised by single mother, a cop, Tulika Maan battles odds to win judo silver medal

Amrita Maan slips into nostalgia mode at the mere mention of ‘sacrifice’: raising a child as a single parent, in a tiny government quarter in South-West Delhi, waking up early in the morning to drop her daughter Tulika to school on a bike, and then riding roughly 20km to a police station in Rajouri Garden, the bustling West Delhi neighbourhood, where she was posted. The endless hours Tulika spent in a room at the police station after school, because no one was there at home to look after her, later admitting her to a judo club so she could spend a couple of hours every day not surrounded by cops – or criminals – and taking multiple personal loans and drying up the savings to support her career in a sport that was, in the beginning, just a ‘time-pass activity’. “You can’t gain anything w...

Saurav Ghosal beats best friend, wins historic bronze 

James Willstrop had beaten long-time friend Saurav Ghosal eight out of nine times before Wednesday, almost always in a convincing fashion within three games. Both coached by Willstrop’s legendary father-coach Malcolm, know each other’s game like the back of their hands. Willstrop was also the defending Commonwealth Games champion. Until the Indian squash No 1 finally turned the tide of their history and beat the 38-year-old Englishman to take the bronze medal at the Birmingham CWG. Ghosal’s promising career, given credence when he won the British Junior’s title in 2004, has seen its ups and downs. He has won titles across the world but when it came to the big one, he always slipped agonisingly close to his final frontier. A medal at the Commonwealth Games was, in his words, ‘the gloss’ ...

Saurav Ghosal makes history with maiden singles medal in CWG squash | Commonwealth Games 2022 News – Times of India

BIRMINGHAM: Breaking a long-standing jinx, Saurav Ghosal on Wednesday claimed India's first ever singles medal in squash -- a bronze -- at the Commonwealth Games here. World No.15 Ghosal dominated the contest against England's James Willstrop from beginning to end, winning 11-6 11-1 11-4 in the bronze play-off. It was Ghosal's second CWG medal, having won a mixed doubles silver with Dipika Pallikal in the 2018 Gold Coast edition. Ghosal, playing his fourth CWG, broke into tears after the play-off against the former world number one. The medal meant the world to him and it came in probably his last appearance at CWG. "I'm very very happy, it's a historic day for Indian squash. To be able to do this against a player of this calibre is very special. I'm happy that after all these years I h...

Former India pacer RP Singh senior’s son Harry selected for England Under-19

Former India seamer Rudra Pratap Singh senior’s son Harry Singh has been selected for the England Under-19 team for their upcoming home series against Sri Lanka Under-19.

Unbeaten: Tania, the leading light and firefighter of India A team, continues to dazzle

Usually, as soon as she makes a move, Tania Sachdev swishes her curls back, gets off the chair and takes a languid stroll along the hallway, often pausing beside her teammates and gazing at their board. Her face is impassive. Outside the game hall, she can be the most expressive of chess players, but inside the quiet ambience of the chess ring, she is economical with her expressions, except for her eyes that hold the mirror to her mind. Her eyes talk vividly; observe those and you realise the state of her game, almost a running commentary. A melange of emotions flicker back and forth, from joy to rage, and angst to doubts. When the match against Georgia’s Salome Melia began, her eyes were tranquil. The early manoeuvres were all by the book, too bookish—a Ruy Lopez  opening, one of the m...

CWG 2022: Women’s T20 leading cricket’s charge for Olympic inclusion

As women’s cricket gets auditioned and observed at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games for a possible and permanent entry into the Games gigs – such as Olympics – the city once again finds itself at an important inflection point in the sport’s history. Way back in 1973, seven teams had lined up, mostly donning the inconvenient short culottes skirts in white, to play in the inaugural Women’s World Cup in 1973, the final of which between England and Australia was hosted at Edgbaston. This was a full two years before the inaugural Men’s World Cup. Now, almost 50 years later, with women’s T20 leading the way into the Commonwealth Games, cricket is again on the cusp of something big – with Los Angeles 2028 Games inviting presentations from the sport, and 2032 Brisbane not likely to be averse t...

BIRMINGHAM: Indian weightlifter Purnima Pandey finished a disappointing sixth in the women's +87kg event at the Commonwealth Games here on Wednesday.

In her last two clean and jerk attempts of 133kg, the barbell slipped out of her hands before she could complete 'clean'. Local favourite Emily Campbell smashed the Games record in snatch and total lift as she heaved 286kg (124kg+162kg) to take home the gold medal.
