Girish Koushik jumps to second spot in world junior chess

Quote:
Hari Hara Nandanan, TNN Aug 10, 2011, 01.41am IST

CHENNAI: Fourteen-year-old Girish Koushik is turning out to be the find of the world junior for India. The Mysore boy played a waiting game against second seed Sanan Sjugirov of Russia in the seventh round in the open section of the world junior chess championship and jumped to second position with six points.

Sixteen-year-old Vidit Santosh Gujrathi played an exciting game with black against fourth seed Alexander Shimanov of Russia and pocketed a point that would enhance his chances of gaining a GM norm from the event.

For Girish Koushik, a ninth standard student of St Thomas school, Mysore, it has been a dream run so far. He has not yet earned his first International Master norm but it looks as if he is in a hurry to get the GM norm straight. He has so far beaten three top GMs, Sjugirov, SP Sethuraman and Vasil Durarbeyli (Azerbaijan). However, his seventh-round win over Sjugirov is something special, though he says "all are equal".

Playing on the third board, Girish waited patiently in the Ruy Lopez game. Sjugirov, with already a loss in the first six rounds, went after black early. The Russian started pushing his pawns in an attempt to win and lost two of them. Girish forced the exchange of white's strong bishop and then in a rook and bishop ending, the Russian had no play after 53 moves. "He lost the game after he exchanged the dark-coloured bishop," said Girish.

Vidit finished off the game against Shimanov in just two hours. The Nasik boy adopted the Razogin variation in Nimzo Indian Defence. The Indian sacrificed a pawn in the opening and got good queenside attack.

Vidit brought the rook to the queen-bishop file on move 13 and since then enjoyed a winning position. Ten moves later, he combined his rook, queen and knight to unleash a mating attack on the long-castled white king. "This was the best game that I have played so far in this championship," said Vidit.

For a change, leader Axel Rombaldoni of Italy dropped a half point No. 7 seed Ter-Sahakyan Samvel of Armenia on the top board. He continued to lead with 6.5 points. "I can't go on winning, he (Samvel) played well," Rombaldoni, who was slightly better before he pushed a pawn in the king-rook file and then handed the same to the Armenian. "However, it is not enough to press for a win," he added.

Defending champions return with 69 medals; Maharashtra second

Sangvekar shines as Karnataka retain title

Quote:
From Josey Samuel, Bhopal, Aug 9, DHNS:

Saurabh Sangvekar nailed his fifth individual title on Tuesday, with a National record in the 800M freestyle, as Karnataka remained champions for one more year in the 38th Junior National Aquatic Championship that concluded at the Prakash Taran Pushkar pool here.

Defending champions Karnataka tallied 528 points (24 gold, 17 silver, 28 bronze) to beat back the challenge of Maharashtra, who garnered 468 points (26 gold, 12 silver, 13 bronze). Tamil Nadu swimmers put up a valiant effort but had to be satisfied with third place with 19 gold, 22 silver and 13 bronze medals.

Saurabh stormed to victory in the 16-lap event, clocking 8:24.97, bettering the old mark by a good 18 seconds. The 17-year-old erased State-mate AP Gagan’s two-year-old mark of 8:43.60. Soon after, Saurabh, who trains under National coach Pradeep Kumar at the Basavangudi Aquatic Centre, touched the tape in 57.94 to pocked the 100 butterfly gold.

Saurabh’s five gold medals and two National records -- 800 and 200 freestyle -- got him the best swimmer award in the Group I boys category. Karnataka’s Group I boys’ 4x100M medley relay team obliterated the National mark. The quartet of Pranam B, Akash Rohit, Saurabh and Ajay A posted 4:07.71 to rewrite the previous mark of 4:08.35 created by Delhi in 2006.

The State Group II boys’ quartet of Pushpanand H, Likith SP, Md Yaqoob Saleem and Nikhil Rajaram timed 4:30.13 to bag the corresponding title. Akash Rohit took home his fourth gold when he timed 2:30.46 to win the Group I boys’ 200M breaststroke. In the corresponding Group II event, Likith SP clocked 2:39.11 to complete a double.

In the water polo competitions, Karnataka girls clinched bronze. The State lasses routed Bengal 7-1 in their last league match to register their second win from four matches.

Belgaum boys skate into record books

June 7, 2011 By Naushad Bijapur DC Belgaum

Quote:


They skated into world records with ease.

Twenty four Belgaum boys, all below 18, joined 56 other skaters from around the country to set new records in non-stop speed skating at an international event here on Monday.

Beating the earlier world record of 24 hours, 14 minutes and 3 seconds for speed skating over 410 kms set by the skaters of Singapore Roller Sports , the young Indian skaters seemed to fly over 560 kms in 17 hours.

They also set a new record of speed skating for 31 hours non-stop beginning 11.25 am on Sunday. International skating referees Mayne Chow from Hongkong and Pablow and Marcello from Brazil who represented the Federation of International Roller Sports, certified the new records, which were also taken note of by representatives of Limca Book of Records, Ramakrishna and Murthy.

“The Singapore skaters skated 410 km in 24 hours when creating the earlier record . The Indian skaters broke it without any hassles," Jyoti Chindak, president of Shivganga Roller Skating Club of Belgaum, said.

The Indian team continued skating even after breaking one world record and created another by skating over 720 kms in 31 hours. Eleven-year-old Nikhil Chindak from Belgaum, best known for his limbo-skating , said he was not at all tired through both events.

Several of the other boys from various parts of the country who took part in the world class performance, are highly talented skaters as well with several achievements to their credit.

Collective effort:The 78 skaters with their coaches and officials of the Shivaganga Roller Skating Club after creating a new record by skating non-stop for 31 hours covering 720 km at the club's rink in Belgaum on Monday.
Belgaum: The Shivaganga Roller Skating Club's rink here on Monday evening reverberated with cheers with young Indian skaters establishing a new world record in the “Continuous Speed Skating Marathon”.

The new record was set at sharp 6.30 p.m. local time after covering 720 km in 31 hours although these skaters had broken the world record a couple of hours earlier during the day, announced A.D. Sharma, Chief Referee and Senior Skating Coach, Department of Sports, Government of Haryana, Sharma in the presence of international referees Wayne Chow from Hong Kong.

Surender Kapoor from New Delhi and Amita Sood from Haryana were the two other referees for the event. Officials of the Limca Book of Records and India Book of Records were present to record the event.

The previous record in this category – 410 km in 24 hours was established in Singapore in 2009, he said.

In all, 78 skaters from Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Madhya Pradesh, Delhi, Rajasthan, and Karnataka, including 22 from Belgaum city alone, participated in the challenging feat accomplished under rainy conditions. Guest international skaters Pablo Navarro and Marcelo Campos from Brazil were all there to lend moral support towards achieving the goal.

It was at sharp 11.30 a.m. on Sunday that skaters in groups of 7 or 8 took off for the challenging task, with each group rolling non-stop for at least half an hour.

As the clock clicked 6.30 p.m. on Monday, the distance covered was 720 km (3,600 laps of 200 m long ring) in 31 hours and under rainy weather conditions.

The organisers had decided to conduct the event for 30 hours. But extended only an hour longer when the skaters wished to skate for a few more hours to set a tall figure before anyone could break the record. President of the host club Jyoti Chindak and Secretary Ramesh Chindak congratulated all the skaters and the team coach Sunil Dhage from Pune for providing special training to the skaters and thanked all those who directly and indirectly supported the club to achieve glory to the city, Karnataka and India.

It was at the same rink that Indian skaters had established a world record in non-stop inline-hockey skating on June 16, 2010.

Longest Limbo Skating-world record set by Aniket Chindak

Quote:
[Jan 3] BELGAUM, INDIA--A six-year-old Indian boy, Aniket Ramesh Chindak has set a new world record for the longest limbo-skating by squeezing himself under a row of 57 four-wheel drive cars in 45 seconds.

Aniket decided to take up limbo skating two years ago after seeing it on television.

He had been roller skating since he was 18 months old, and wanted a new challenge. "It took three months before I could get my body in the right position," he said. "Since then I have skated under lots of cars and have never hurt myself."





Aniket said: "The hardest thing is to go fast enough before I bend down. That's how you can skate under so many cars at once."

A celebrity in his home-town Belgaum in Southern Karnataka state, Aniket has an extraordinary ability to perform what is known as 'limbo-skating ' .

His family says he started roller skating from the age of 18 months and has since received many trophies and awards for his skating skills.

Now he is training four hours a day, and skating 60 miles a week in pursuit of the new challenge: he plans to break his world record of 57 cars in 45 seconds with a 100-car skate in New Delhi.

"In the future I am planning to do skating-dancing, skating-singing, and football and hockey skating too, and I want to win many prizes." Aniket said telling AP Television of his future plans.

His parents say they are not unduly worried about Aniket's safety in performing such feats and encourage him to carry on with his practice .

"He himself is so motivated and prepared for small scratches and injuries that even when he falls, he tells me 'no mummy, lets do it once again. We will do it," said Jyoti Chindak, his mother.

Aniket has got inspiration from his mother Mrs Jyoti Ramesh Chindak. As she has also made a record in Biggest Rangoli of Indian Tradition.

The record was covered by ZEE TV of Shabhash India.

Aniket has been inspired by his mother especially and his elder brothet Mr Anand Chindak who supported him to achieve this great success.

Aniket is taking training from Belgaum Roller Skating Academy by his Coach Suryakant Hindalgekar and Suhas Sir.

All the family members supported him a lot in all the activities.He is also been encouraged by his family,friends and relatives and has achived a Great Success.

Limbo-skating is something of a craze in India. Last September, three-year-old Krishna Kunwar Gahlo of Udaipur skated under a bus with a clearance height of 11in, and in October, five-year-old Uttam Gahlot, also from Udaipur, rolled under a car with a clearance height of just 6.75in, which his coach claimed to be a record in the boys' category.

In the United States, seven-year-old Zoey Beda earned the nickname Roller Limbo Princess when she succeeded in skating as low as 7in, while in 1999, six-year-old Xue Wang of Beijing performed the splits under a bar set at 5.75in.

Aniket's father Ramesh says his son is skating for more 60 miles twice a week to get in perfect condition for his record attempt.

"It took him a while to condition his body to hold the correct position – now his battle is to get the speed and control necessary for 100 cars," he said. "He wants to set a world record no one can beat for a long time."


A date hasn't yet been set for when Aniket Chindak hopes to break the record, plans are though for some time early 2008.

But for now, the Aniket is skating 60 miles twice-a week to prepare for the new world record he is determined to set.

ANIKETs AWARDS:
1. He was awarded for BAL KALASHREE PURASKAR Award
2. Belgaum Rollers Skating Academy Championship Award.
3. S.K. Five Star Rolling Skating Championship Award at Kolhapur 4. Enter School Roller Skating Championship Award.

World Badminton Championships: Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa enter last 4 to make history

Quote:



Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa created history when they came back from behind to defeat the Indonesian combine of Vita Marissa and Nadya Melati 17- 21, 21- 10, 21- 17 to enter the semi-finals of the World Badminton Championships in Wembley, London on Friday.

In the process, they became the first Indian pair to enter the semi-finals of the worlds. In the last four clash they will take on the fifth seeded Chinese pair of Qing Ting and Zhao Yunlei.

But it was the end of the road for Saina Nehwal who went down tamely to Chinese third seed Wang Xin 15-21, 10-21. This was the third time that the Indian ace lost in the quarter-final stage of the World Championships.

Jwala and Ashwini were slow off the blocks and failed to negotiate the bullet like smashes of the Indonesian pair. The Indian duo lost the opener in 18 minutes.

After the pep talk from coach Gopi Chand, the Indian pair changed their tactics. They kept the shuttle low and denied Vita and Nadya the chance to attack.

In their haste to finish off the points, the Indonesians made a host of errors to lose the second game 10-21.

The decider was a close affair with Jwala and Ashwini holding their nerves to win 21-17.

Saina was too slow in her quarter-final against Wang. The Chinese used her powerful smashes to tame the Indian. The Hyderabadi's was unable to control the net.

"I was simply off form today," she said.

Halappa to miss Asian Champions Trophy

Quote:
BANGALORE: Skipper Arjun Halappa will not figure in the selection trials over the weekend for the Asian Champions Trophy tournament.

Out with a groin injury for more than a month now, the midfielder said it was disappointing he wouldn't be able to figure in the trials as well as the continental tournament. But he has no choice as he will be on rehab for the next three weeks and will take around six weeks to regain full fitness.

There is a cloud of doubt over Vikramkanth and Kothajit, who are down with fever while frontliner Tushar Khandker, who is nursing an ankle injury, may find himself out of the trials, giving chief coach Michael Nobbs the challenge of finding apt replacements in the 18-member squad.

Nobbs will rely on the counsel of his exercise physiologist David John, even if it has to be over the telephone, to pick the best of the 48 that have assembled at the Sports Authority of India, South Centre. John was expected to land in India on Friday but his departure from Australia may be delayed until next week, it is learnt.

The selection assumes significance as it is Nobbs' first. It is natural than anybody in charge of a squad will have his own priorities and strategies with some players fitting into his scheme of things better than the others.

Nobbs will look for a blend of youth and experience but whether he has set his sights on any young gun in particular remains to be seen. The Australian is keen on blooding youngsters so that they get to play at least 10-20 international matches prior to the Olympic qualifiers next year.

In the present scenario, fitness is the key factor which may shatter the hopes of a few senior players, particularly those who chose to break the camp rules and their fitness routines and head to Mumbai for the World Series Hockey launch last month. John had said then that it would be an uphill task for those players to catch up with the others.

The silver lining here is that the Asian Champions Trophy, to be held in Ordos, China from September 3-11, is the first of the tournaments where India would be testing their talent, giving a ray of hope to those keen on a comeback. As Nobbs said: "The Ordos test is a good one to see where we stand competitively. If we do well, then we are heading in the right track, if we don't do well then we know what needs to be done."

Apparently, Nobbs' line of thinking will become even more clear once his core group of around 29-31 players will be decided in the next two days along with the 18 for Ordos.

Among the selectors, Col Balbir Singh, Harbinder Singh, BP Govinda, AB Subbaiah and government observer Dilip Tirkey will watch the trials at SAI.

The venue was decided after the players opined that the SAI turf is not as unplayable as it has been made out to be. Incidentally, the travel time to the MEG turf, which is a clean 20km away from SAI, and the hellish journey, too has contributed to the decision.

President’s XI score over Vidarbha

KSCA teams set up title tilt

Quote:
Bangalore, August 13, DHNS:





It will be an all home affair in the final of the Shafi Darashah Trophy, with KSCA XI and KSCA President’s XI set to lock horns in the 50-over-a-side title round on Monday at the Chinnaswamy stadium.

In the Group B, President’s XI and Punjab Cricket Association ended up nine points, but the former entered the final by virtue of the number of outright win. In the last set of matches, President’s XI defeated Vidarbha CA, while Punjab could only manage a draw against Baroda.

At the RSI grounds on Saturday, KSCA XI didn’t waste much time in apply finishing touches to the Colts’ first innings.

The Colts could add only six runs to their overnight 264 for eight. Left-arm spinner Suchith J completed an astounding nine-wicket haul (9/98), giving the marching orders to Abhishesk Jagan and HS Sharath. The Colts’ tally of 270 gave KSCA XI a 213-run first-innings lead. They could have enforced the follow-on in search of an outright win, but having already assured themselves a berth in the final, KSCA XI preferred to bat a second time to give some practice for their batsmen ahead of the final.

KSCA XI made 240 for six in 71 overs before both teams agreed to end the proceedings at the tea interval. Stuart Binny, Shreyas Gopal and Aman Raj led KSCA XI’s charge with well-made fifties, and Shreyas was impressive in particular.

Composed fifty

The right-hander seemed set for a big score in the first innings, but failed to kick on. However, he made amends on the day with a composed fifty.

Shreyas (65, 130b, 5x4) attached a heavy price on his wicket, and avoided all the frills. The biggest threat for the KSCA XI batsmen was Sunil Raju’s off-spin as he troubled batsmen with awkward bounce.

But Shreyas came right behind the ball to nullify the rising deliveries and rolled his wrist to keep the ball down, away from the grasp of the close-in fielders. He had an equally strong-minded partner in Aman Raj (56 n.o., 99b, 4x4) as the duo realised 93 runs for the stubborn sixth wicket.

Left-arm spinner SK Moinuddin, who has been vastly impressive in this tournament, ended the alliance, forcing Shreyas to edge one to Pavan Deshpande. Binny (53, 55b, 6x4, 2x6) was all fire and brimstone as usual, mullering the red cherry to the fence with brute force. However, the entertainment came to an end when he slashed Moinuddin to Zeeshan Ali at covers.

Brief scores: At RSI Grounds: KSCA XI: 483/6 decl in 175 overs and 240/6 in 71 overs (Stuart Binny 53, Shreyas Gopal 65, Aman Raj 56 n.o.; Sunil N Raju 3-71, SK Moinuddin 2-46) drew KSCA Colts: 270 all out in 88 overs (Karun Nair 64, Pawan Deshpande 57, Abrar Kazi 58; Suchith J 9-98).

At Chinnaswamy Stadium: Rajasthan CA: 277 all out in 105.5 overs and 121 all out in 47.5 overs (Afroz Khan 40; Arav Dave 5-39, Kamlesh Mankwana 2-20) lt to Saurashtra CA: 459 all out in 132.2 overs.

At PES, Mandya: Vidarbha CA: 347 all out in 92.5 overs and 340/9 decl in 73.4 overs (Akshay Kolar 39, Anup Fulpar 55, Ravi Jangid 91, Shalabh Srivastava 81; NC Aiyappa 4-55, Aditya B Sagar 2-48) lt to KSCA President’s XI: 385 all out in 189.4 overs and 300/9 in 57.4 overs (Bharath Chipli 54, Kunal Kapoor 38, KL Rahul 95, Rajoo Bhatkal 32; Sumit Ruikar 6-126).

At Gangotri Glades, Mysore: Punjab CA: 527 all out in 155.4 overs and 86/0 in 16 overs (Amitoze Singh 33 n.o., Sarabjeet Singh 53 n.o.) drew Baroda CA: 385 all out in 133.1 overs (Kedar Devdhar 49, Murtuja Vohra 51).
DHNS

Shafi Darashah trophy has three teams from Karnataka,so no surprise to see karnataka teams in the finals.

Rain will make K-1000 tougher: Gill

Quote:
BANGALORE: Karnataka-1000 rally is always known to be a tough rally to compete in, thanks to the tricky tracks that test the mettle of drivers.

With heavy rain lashing the state for the past few days, the track has become muddy and slushy this time too and the drivers will feel the heat when the 37th edition of the premier rally event -- fourth round of the Indian National Rally Championship (INRC) -- begins at Siddlaghatta, about 70 km from , on Saturday.

Almost all the drivers are wary about the rain and changing weather conditions.

Leading Indian driver Gaurav Gill, driving a Mitsubishi Cedia, gave an idea about the things to expect in the next two days when he observed that the rally will witness high speed action if it does not rain. "It is very tough to drive in these conditions," he said after the reconnaissance on Friday morning.

Gaurav and Musa Sherif (Team MRF) are leading the table with 74 points, thanks to their top-of-the-podium finish in the first round at Nashik. Though they did not finish the second round in Chennai due to a mechanical problem, the duo came back brilliantly to claim the top honours in the third round in Coimbatore.

"It will be a disadvantage for the first three cars due to water logging in some parts of the track. Other cars will find it a bit easy once we clear the water. So it is going to be tough for the car as well as the driver," Gill said.

However, he allayed fears about the technical problems that did him in Chennai. "Electrical and mechanical problems have been resolved and I hope to finish on top once again," he said.

His MRF team-mate Amittrajit Ghosh (co-driver Ashwin Naik), who is in the second spot with 44 points, too expressed his apprehensions about the track. "I think the clay stage will be the toughest one. So our aim is to get the stage and we are not concentrating on the championship now," he said.

Team MRF has fielded four teams with Arjun Balu (co-driver Sujith Kumar) and Lohitt Urs (PVS Murthy) being the other teams from the Tyre Major's stable. Last year's K-1000 winner Arjun Rao Aroor (co-driver Satish Kumar) has moved out from Team MRF and is competing as a privateer in Group N+ category.

The three Special Stages -- clay (13.02km), blackberry (9.2 km) and Blueberry (13.63km) -- will be run twice on Saturday and once on Sunday for a total distance of about 110 km.

The spectator-friendly two-km super special stages will be held at Clarke Exotica on Sunday afternoon.

Lohit Urs is from Mysore...I support him

Sadananda Gowda outlines game plan for sports

Quote:
Chief minister DV Sadananda Gowda on Saturday pledged more financial and administrative support to develop sports infrastructure in Karnataka, in addition to fresh financial outlay for developing the existing sport facilities.

Inaugurating the full-fledged indoor sports pavilion, which was built at a cost of Rs3 crore, Gowda said, “My dream is to have such a magnificent facility in every taluk. For now, we will begin with 16 taluks. The government has also decided to go for a synthetic, 400-metre athletic track in four districts, including Mangalore, Udupi, Haveri, and Hosadurga. Udupi will also get a swimming pool like the one used in Olympics.

This will be constructed at a cost of Rs3 crore. The government has passed Rs40 crore for developing sports infrastructure in the state, for fiscal year 2011-12.”

Gowda also pointed out that the government has rewarded Rs1.9 crore to 33 athletes for their outstanding performance in Commonwealth and Asian Games.

Gowda inaugurated the sports facility by playing a game of badminton with national champions Anup Sridhar and U Vimal Kumar.

‘Rs. 108 crore set aside to improve sports facilities'

Quote:
Chief Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda said on Saturday that the Government had allotted Rs. 108 crore to improve infrastructural facilities for sports in the State in the present fiscal.

He was speaking after inaugurating the indoor stadium and laying foundation stone for a swimming pool. He also inaugurated a four-day State-level junior badminton championship.

Mr. Gowda said the Government would construct stadiums in 22 districts of the State. It would construct taluk-level stadiums of 118 taluks. Synthetic tracks were being laid in Hosadurga, Mangalore, Mysore and Shimoga at a cost of Rs. 40 crore.

An amount of Rs. 10 crore had been allotted for the Academy of Sports Excellence for developing sportspersons of top quality.

He said the indoor stadium inaugurated here on Saturday was constructed at a cost of Rs. 3 crore.

An amount of Rs. 36 lakh would be allotted immediately for providing other facilities at the indoor stadium. The Government was committed to the construction of a synthetic track at the Mahatma Gandhi District Stadium in Udupi at a cost of Rs. 4 crore. An amount of Rs. one crore for this synthetic track would be released soon, he said.

Mr. Gowda said though he had become the Chief Minister of the State, he still felt like he was Udupi MP. “I was trying to solve the problems of Udupi district as your MP. Now as Chief Minister, I will strive more for the development of this region. It is the soil of Udupi and the blessings of Lord Krishna that I have become the Chief Minister”, he said.
