FIH Pro League Hockey India up to third place now without really doing anything after Germany did poorly against GBR recently. India was to play GBR but it was postponed due to the Covid 2nd wave.

I am not sure why, but trying to play the above video shows this message 'This video contains content from ETPL, who has blocked it from display on this website or application.' I have no idea what ETPL is.

Awesome cinematography as well with the picturizations. The only word I recognized is Naeram (water?).

The most brilliant move by Vishy Anand was to resign this game and get this billionaire cheater caught. And the way Nikhil Kamath behaved after the event makes it shameful to even have his name and Anand's in the same sentence.

Click on the video despite the message on the opening page.

Srihari Nataraj earns ‘A’ qualification mark for Tokyo Olympics

No Indian had ever achieved the automatic qualification — the ‘A’ cut — for swimming in Olympics. Now, one day after Sajan Prakash became the first Indian swimmer to achieve the feat, Srihari Nataraj on Sunday became the second Indian to achieve the mark.

Nataraj, who finished an agonizing 0.05 seconds short of the ‘A’ mark two days earlier, got to the mark with a 53.77-second finish in a 100m backstroke time trial at the Settecolli Swim Meet in Italy.

India are now confirmed to have Sajan Prakash and Srihari Nataraj competing in the Tokyo Games. This is the first time two Indian swimmers have earned direct qualification into the Olympics.

Tokyo Olympics 2020: Sajan Prakash becomes first-ever Indian to breach qualification mark for Games

Sajan Prakash on Saturday became the first-ever Indian swimmer to qualify for the Olympic Games by breaching the ''A'' standard time, clocking 1:56:38 seconds in the men's 200m butterfly event at the Sette Colli Trophy in Rome, Italy.

The Games ''A'' standard was set at 1:56.48 seconds and the 27-year-old Prakash completed the run 0.10 seconds faster at the FINA-accredited Olympic qualifier.

"I have worked very hard for this, and I was confident with the way I had trained," Prakash was quoted as saying in a press release.

"This was my last chance, and I knew I had to do it here. I had come so close to the qualifying mark in the previous meets, but my Coach Pradeep Sir and I planned my tapering in such a way that I would peak at these two events in Serbia and Rome."

"I am grateful to all the support I have received from SFI, SAI and the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports (MYAS). I believed in myself and my Coach Pradeep Kumar. Pradeep Sir was the anchor and I owe this to him. I knew I had it in me, and I am glad I achieved it," added Sajan.

Prakash also rewrote his own national record of 1:56.96s that he had set last week at the Belgrade Trophy swimming competition.

This will be Prakash's second successive Olympics, having represented India in the 2016 Rio Games.

"Historic moment in Indian Swimming!!! Sajan Prakash breaks the glass ceiling clocks 1:56.38 an Olympic qualification time. CONGRATULATIONS" tweeted the Swimming Federation of India.

Prakash will take part in the Tokyo Games alongside Maana Patel, who has been nominated by the Swimming Federation of India for the Universality places.

Prakash's direct qualification means Srihari Nataraj, who missed the ''A'' the 100m men's backstroke by 0.05s in Rome on Friday, will not be competing in the Tokyo Games despite being nominated for the Universality places.

The Universality quota allows one male and one female competitor from a country to participate in the Olympics, provided no other swimmer from the same gender qualifies for the Games or receives a FINA invite based on his or her Olympic Selection time (B time).

The Kerala swimmer had always been optimistic about breaching the elusive ''A'' mark.

"This is not my peak yet, when I peak after some skill sharpening, after that, I think it (A mark) will happen. I have to be patient for that," he had told PTI in April after he clocked 1.57.85s in the Uzbekistan Open Championship.

Since then he has constantly improved his time. Last week, in the Belgrade Trophy swimming competition he had clocked 1:56.96 seconds.

It was a good day for Indian swimming as TOPS developmental swimmer Kenisha Gupta also created a national record.

The Mumbai swimmer clocked 57.35 second in the 100m freestyle event at the Rome event.

For the 2021 Archery World Cup so far, India heads the medal table. The East Asians (Korea, Taiwan, China, Japan) are all missing from the circuit this year so its hard to tell how good our performance is, but it's clearly the best ever for us:

Deepika Kumari won 3 golds in the latest leg - WS, WT and MxT with her spouse Atanu Das.

Six girls from Gujarat to represent India in Tokyo Olympics and Para Olympics - DeshGujarat
https://www.deshgujarat.com/2021/07/02/ ... pics-2020/
Gandhinagar: Six Girls from Gujarat will represent India in Tokyo Olympics and Para Olympics 2020. Not just this but after a gap of sixty years, Gujarat will be having representation at the Olympics and Paralympics.

It is indeed a historic achievement for Gujarat that for the first time ever, six athletes (all female) from the state have qualified for the Olympic and Paralympic Games to be held in Tokyo from July 23rd.

The last time an athlete from Gujarat had represented India at the Olympics was men’s hockey player Govindrao Sawant at the 1960 Rome Olympics. Before that Shankarrao Thorat had represented India in Wrestling at the 1936 Olympics.

Neeraj Chopra did well in a warmup event in Finland, finishing third behind German frontrunner Johannes Vetter and 2019 world champion Anderson Peters. His javelin throw was nearly 87m. Good competitive performance among the top of the pack. He looks so much skinnier than the top 2 throwers.

Vishwanathan Anand finishes second in Croatia Grand Chess Tour

Chennai Tiger hasn't lost his teeth despite crossing 51 years and played superbly against much younger top tier GMs. Alas Gary Kasparov was a lumbering shadow of his former self, only the grumpyness remains in tact.

Viswanathan Anand, who had beaten Garry Kasparov on the first day of the Blitz on Saturday, came up with a superb performance again to defeat the Russian in the 13th round on Sunday.

Former world champion Viswanathan Anand finished second in the Croatia Grand Chess Tour here on Sunday with an impressive performance, accentuated by his two victories over long-time rival Garry Kasparov. Anand, who had beaten Kasparov on the first day of the Blitz on Saturday, came up with a superb performance again to defeat the Russian legend in the 13th round on Sunday. Frenchman Maxime Vachier-Lagrave (22 points) sealed the title with a round to spare, thanks to a victory over a misfiring Kasparov in the 17th round.

Indian ace Anand took a quick draw in his 18th round game against Alexander Grischuk to finish with 21 points and a clear second ahead of the top-seed Ian Nepomniachtchi. In the penultimate round, he drew against Shakriyar Mamedyarov of Azerbaijan. He would receive USD 25,000 as prize money for his second-place finish.

Playing with black pieces, Anand got the better of the legendary Russian in 25 moves in a Nimzo-Indian defence game. The victory came for the Indian maestro after three straight draws in rounds 10, 11 and 12 against Anish Giri (the Netherlands), Jan-Kryzstof Duda (Poland) and Vachier-Lagrave respectively. He followed it up with a superb win over Russian Nepomniachtchi, the top-seed in the 14th round. Continuing the good run, Anand then defeated Anton Korobov (Ukraine) and Jordan Van Foreest (the Netherlands) and shared honours with Shakriyar Mamedyarov (Azerbaijan).

On the first day of the Blitz on Saturday, the Indian ace had recorded four wins, drawn three matches and suffered two defeats. The former world champion had ended up seventh after the Rapid section, with nine points. He had posted two wins and drawn five and lost two matches.

Indian archers did well last weekend at the PARIS 2021 HYUNDAI ARCHERY WORLD CUP STAGE 3:

Men's compound - Abhishek Verma - Gold
Women's recurve - Deepika Kumari - Gold (World N°2 now)
Mixed Team Recurve - Deepika Kumari and Atanu Das - Gold (husband and wife pair!)

The Korean big guns are absent, but a win is still a win. Well done !

Beds to be installed in Tokyo Olympic Village will be made of cardboard, this is aimed at avoiding intimacy among athletes

Beds will be able to withstand the weight of a single person to avoid situations beyond sports.

I see no problem for distance runners,even 4 of us can do
