Rohtak, April 26
The Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Rohtak, has introduced a two-year executive postgraduate diploma in sports management.

The institute is the first IIM to launch a sports management programme designed for professionals and sports enthusiasts.

The graduates of this course would be equipped to understand legal, regulatory, operational, financial, and branding concepts in the sports industry.

Director, IIM-Rohtak, Prof Dheeraj Sharma said the Indian sports market was growing at a fast pace.

“This is due to the revolutionised sporting environment created due to professional leagues operating around the year. Thus this programme is designed on a par with the best in the world to train professional managers who can embark on career opportunities in various functions of sports management such as sports administration and planning, event management, sports negotiations and compliance, management of elite athletes, sports academies, facility management, and sports marketing,” he said.

Candidate with a bachelor’s degree in any discipline can apply for this study programme, whereas work experience in the relevant field will be an added advantage.

Professor Sharma said the growing need to professionalise the ever-expanding sports industry created the need for sports management professionals. Sports management professionals are expected to deal with various business aspects of sports and recreation.

“The sports management programme at IIM-Rohtak is expected to produce professionals who have competence in various domains such as sports marketing, sports law, financial aspect of sports, event management, sports infrastructure management and sponsorship, among others,” he said, adding that the last date for registration is May 31. The first batch is expected to start in July 8.

Neeraj Chopra is making more progress. Well past 87m now, throwing 87.43m, almost a metre longer than his previous best.
India's ace javelin-thrower Neeraj Chopra finishes fourth in Doha Diamond League, shatters own national record
This was a creme-de-la-creme event, with all the top throwers present. He finished behind the 3 heavyweight Germans - the Olympic champion Rohler, world champion Vetter and Hoffmann, but ahead of everyone else, amongst them prior world, European and Olympics medalists.

By end of year I hope he will hit 89-90m.

Chopra's throw is at 2:50 here:

A former champion shooter himself, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore knows how lack of infrastructure can scuttle Olympic dreams and the Indian sports minister is determined to ensure his athletes get the best possible preparation for the Tokyo Games.


In an interview, Rathore said the government was 'leaving no stone unturned' to train 200 elite athletes for the 2020 Olympics and beyond under its Target Olympic Podium Scheme (TOPS) programme.

"With just one and half to two years left for the Tokyo Games, we are not only focusing on their training but also rehab if any athlete is injured," Rathore said, sitting on a Swiss exercise ball which he uses as a chair in his office.

TOPS was rolled out in 2014 to identify elite athletes and provide them with world-class coaching and training facilities.

"From selection to funding, everything is managed by a set of people whom we have put under the TOPS," said Rathore, who won the double-trap silver at the 2004 Athens Games.

"This team has high performance directors, CEOs, athlete relationship managers, researchers who are finding details about athletes' toughest opponents in the top international circuit."

More encouraging is the emergence of a bunch of young champions.

A 16-year old Manu Bhaker shot down the 10m air pistol gold at the ISSF Mexico World Cup in March, 20-year old Neeraj Chopra won the javelin gold in the last Commonwealth Games and 15-year-old Anish Bhanwala became the youngest Indian to win a Commonwealth gold in the 25m rapid fire pistol event.

Long a laggard at multi-sports Games, India finished third at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games ahead of more traditional sporting powers Canada, New Zealand and South Africa.

"I think the self-confidence is building up. A sense of self-belief is building up. The athletes are feeding off each other and the whole environment in India is now feeding off itself," said Rathore.

The Indian shooters have been performing exceptionally well at the world stage in recent times, which has been especially pleasing to former marksman Rathore.

"This excellence is largely driven by individuals but it's also due to funding that is coming to them.

"The shooting federation is the highest funded federation. Among the 200 elite athletes, about 200 crore rupees ($29.70 million) have been provided to shooters alone, much more than any other federation. So, we are investing into it."

Apart from shooting, India have made longs strides in disciplines such as badminton, wrestling, boxing and archery.

"We have identified the events that we will do well in and also the athletes who we are hoping will do well. I leave this job of identifying to the super professionals of the TOPS team and I have great respect for the work they are doing," said Rathore.

"It's my job to ensure that the best professional people are into my TOPS team and they will continuously analyse which events, depending on who are the athletes competing there, how they compare with the world standard and fund those athletes.

"Closer to the (Tokyo) Games they (will) keep giving me an account as to which athlete is moving closer and who is likely to win," he said.

India has been here before of course and the only true test of the TOPS programme will come in August 2020.

After all, India were second in the medals table at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in New Delhi but returned home from the subsequent London Olympics without a single gold medal.

Heena bags gold, Nivetha gets bronze in Hannover
HANNOVER: Indian shooter Heena Sidhu clinched the gold medal while compatriot P Shri Nivetha settled for bronze in the women's 10m air pistol at the International Shooting Competitions of Hannover (ISCH) ahead of next week's ISSF Munich World Cup.

Heena was in rollicking form in the final where she was tied with France's Mathilde Lamolle on 239.8 points. She won the tie to win the gold ahead of Mathilde. Shri Nivetha finished on 219.2.

The finish marks a strong build-up to next week's ISSF World Cup in Munich.

After beginning with a series of scores in the 9s, Heena switched gears and notched up 10 and above consistently to break away from the field. Her second series produced consistent 10s and she even hit a perfect 10.9 in the elimination round to put herself in contention for gold.

After initially fighting for the 3rd-4th position, the Commonwealth gold medalist Indian scored a 10.9 on her 13th shot in the final to take the lead and then held her nerve till the end.

Heena qualified for the final in the fourth place scoring 572 while Shri Nivetha topped the qualification with a total of 582.

"I am feeling good with how my training is shaping up. Of course, it's not perfect but we are moving in the right direction so it's just a matter of time," Heena said after her gold medal win.

The ISSF Munich World Cup will be held from May 22 to 29 and will be Heena's second major competition after her twin medal success at the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast and the World Cup in Korea.

Heena had won a gold in the women's 25m pistol event in Gold Coast and a silver in 10 metre air pistol.
