After losing coach to Covid, pole vaulter Siva pays tribute with National Games gold and record

When Siva Subramani, the country’s best vaulter by a distance, lost his former coach Don Wilcox to Covid in May last year, he thought his career in athletics was all but over. The pain of losing Wilcox, a retired customs officer whom Siva calls his backbone, was hard to process for the 26-year-old. He not only lost his focus but also his will to pursue the sport. “He was my backbone. What will you do if you lose yours?” asks Siva. But the Tamil Nadu athlete knew he had to pick himself up and continue vaulting. He could not let his late coach down. So, it was only apt that after rewriting his own national record by clearing the bar at 5.31m and taking home the gold at the ongoing National Games, Siva dedicated his medal to his former coach. He clenched the medal in his hands as his eyes ...

India vs South Africa: ‘Instinct and hard work’ fuel KL Rahul’s fluid knock | Cricket News – Times of India

GUWAHATI: He was back among the runs with the slow but steady innings of 51 runs in the first match of the ongoing T20 International series against South Africa. But on Sunday at Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati, India's vice-captain in the shortest format of the game — KL Rahul — was back in form hitting a 28-ball 57. With bowling spearhead Jasprit Bumrah's injured back adding to Rahul Dravid-coached side's growing uncertainties over a perfect team combination going into the upcoming T20 World Cup Down Under, Rahul's coming back into his fluid best augurs well for the highest-ranked T20 team in the world. Much has been talked about his slow T20I half-century in Thiruvananthapuram – the slowest ever in T20I history by a player from a Test nation – but on Sunday the wristy Bangalore...

Rahul adapting to new ultra-aggressive role in T20s

In the series-deciding Hyderabad T20I against Australia last month, KL Rahul tried to heave Daniel Sams over midwicket, but only managed a top edge that was taken by the wicketkeeper. In the Guwahati T20I against South Africa on Sunday, Anrich Nortje slipped in a surprise leg-cutter after bowling a 144 kph lifter. Despite the ball holding up and straightening after pitching, Rahul adjusted and heaved it over midwicket for an 80-metre six. Two disparate and disconnected events, of course, but probably a crucial variable is also the stage of the innings when they occurred. The Sams delivery came in the very first over, while the Nortje six was off the 20th delivery Rahul had faced. WHAT. A.

India without Jasprit Bumrah lacks the swagger of Ocean’s XI or Reservoir Dogs 

A team’s ‘entry’ on the field of play is an important event of the game, a decisive first impression in a mental battle. Reputed teams have an aura, and a swagger, that gives them an edge even before the action starts on the central square.When Ricky Ponting would emerge from the stadium tunnel with Mathew Hayden, Andrew Symonds, Adam Gilchrist, Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath following him, they looked like astronauts heading to the space shuttle destined to conquer the skies. On days, they would be like the Ocean’s XI or Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs – a bunch with varied skills equipped to pull off the most difficult of heists. India, minus Bumrah, faces several questions: Who has the gas lighter to break the safe? Who knows how to drive getaway cars when the alarms start howling and patrol ...

Pole-vaulter Siva Subramaniam, weightlifter Sambo Lapung break records on way to gold medals in National Games | More sports News – Times of India

GANDHINAGAR: Pole-vaulter Siva Subramaniam and weightlifter Sambo Lapung shattered national records on way to winning their respective gold medals at the National Games here on Monday. While Siva from Services soared over 5.31m to break his own national record set four years ago, Sambo, representing Arunachal Pradesh, lifted 198kg to break the Clean and Jerk national mark in 96kg men's weightlifting. Egged on by a seizable crowd at the IIT Gandhinagar, Siva Subramaniam first broke the National Games record, set at 5.10m by Vijay Pal Singh back in 1987, by clearing 5.11m. He then soared over 5.21m and asked for the bar to be raised at 5.31m, with an eye on the national record. He failed on the first try but cleared it the next time.

Why Manav Thakkar chose Table Tennis, the sport he kept losing as a kid

The Indian men’s team has been the stars of their Group at the World Table Tennis Team Championships being held in Chengdu, China. With one match to go against France, they’re current toppers of their group, something not many would have bet on. After blanking Uzbekistan 3-0 in their first encounter, they punched way above their weight to beat World No. 2 and European champions Germany in their second tie. On Monday, they held their nerve excellently to overcome a tricky Kazakhstan 3-2. While the star of the show has been their captain G Sathiyan, who pulled off a stellar win over World No. 9 Dang Qiu of Germany, national champion Harmeet Desai too has been in great touch. And while the focus is on Sathiyan and Harmeet, India’s third paddler – Manav Thakkar – has been nothing short of s...

Mukesh Kumar: Army dreams, father who hated cricket, struggles, cricketing trials….triumph

In 2008-09, a trial ‘Pratibha ki Khoj‘ was organised in the Gopalganj district of Bihar, which started Mukesh Kumar’s tryst with cricket. In the 25-over per side match, Kumar bagged 34 wickets in seven games. A year later, he represented Bihar U-19 in the Associate & Affiliate Tournament hosted by the BCCI. Amit Singh, former captain of the Gopalganj district cricket team in Hayman Trophy (Inter-district cricket tournament in Bihar), who first spotted Kumar’s talent, recalls how Mukesh used to cycle 30 kms everyday, to-and-fro to play cricket at the academy. “His village (Kakarkund) was 15km from the town (Gopalganj). I used to be amazed at how he does that everyday. I told him so many times to take bus, his reply will be ‘Bhaiya leg muscles strong kar rahe, sena mey bharti hona hai...

A Virat Kohli fan for over 11 years, Rahul Rai spent over ₹23,000 to meet the India international in Guwahati and click a selfie with him.
