"defeated by compatriots" rather than opponents Narsingh’s fortunes took a turn for the worse when he was ousted from the Olympics and slapped with a four-year ban for flunking a dope test after Court of Arbitration for Sports overturned the clean chit given to him by the National Anti-Doping Agency File photo of Narsingh Yadav Reuters "It’s not a just loss for Narsingh at the Court of Arbitration for Sports but he was beaten by his compatriots who did not want to let him compete at the Olympics and not by his opponents" IOA secretary general Rajeev Mehta told PTI after the CAS verdict "The picture is clear and neither I nor anyone has to say who’s done the foul play If you go back you can easily connect the dots and would clearly know who could be the suspect "As of now the culprits have been successful in stopping him from the Olympics though we may challenge the order and minimise the ban It’s a loss for the country" Further hinting at a conspiracy theory Mehta added "We must go deep into the matter and the government should initiate a CBI inquiry into the matter It’s not a small thing it’s plaguing our country’s sport and we must nip this in the bud "Days after he won the battle at the Delhi High Court a phone call came from his SAI centre in Sonipat about some doping activities the raid happened and his sample was found positive It cannot be sheer coincidence" The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) had appealed against the NADA all-clear to Narsingh at CAS three days ahead of his scheduled opening bout at the Olympics Mehta was part of the four-hour long marathon hearing inRio de Janeiro The verdict marked a painful end to the sordid controversy which began with the wrestler failing a 25 June test The embattled 74kg category grappler has maintained all along that his scandalous dope test was a result of conspiracy by rivals who spiked his food or drinks Having grabbed the quota by virtue of his World Championships bronze in Las Vegas last year Narsingh’s

session ahead of their tournament opener on Sunday Related News Ahead of the high-profile ICC Champions Trophy Group B contest between India and Pakistan off-spinner Harbhajan Singh feels the Men in Blue have the upper hand as the neighbours don’t have enough youngsters capable of handling pressure of the big games “I haven’t seen too many youngsters capable of handling pressure in the current Pakistani set-up” Harbhajan wrote in a column for ICC More than the skills India discard Harbhajan feels it will be all about the mental aspect of the game – handling pressure “At the end of the day an India-Pakistan game has got more to do with pressure than anything else The team that handles the ‘P-factor’ better on the day is more likely to win “Over the years India has learnt how to deal with pressure And this isn’t just against Pakistan In any case the Pakistani team of the day is no match for its teams of the past There was a time when Wasim Akram Waqar Younis Saqlain Mushtaq Saeed Anwar Inzamam-ul-Haq and Mohammad Yousuf used to play in the same team” Harbhajan who is one of the few individuals to be part of the squad which won all three ICC tournaments – Champions Trophy World T20 World Cup – picked Mohammad Amir and Shoaib Malik to be the key players for Pakistan “I quite like Sarfraz Ahmed the wicketkeeper-batsman Also their batting isn’t anywhere close to what South Africa (AB de Villiers and Faf Du Plessis) and India (MS Dhoni Virat Kohli Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma) can boast” said Harbhajan “When it comes to the ‘danger-man’ in their squad I think Shoaib Malik is one player who plays spin really well Once he gets used to the conditions he can take on any bowler be it a spinner or a fast bowler “The other player to watch out for is skipper Sarfraz because he is very intelligent In the bowling department Pakistan has Mohammad Amir India needs to play him carefully especially when he’s armed with the new ball” Harbhajan added that Pakistan won’t pose much of a problem to India in their tournament opener on Sunday “At the international level there is pressure before any game I would say that there is now more pressure when we face South Africa and Australia or even England for that matter These teams worry us more than Pakistan There is always pressure If there is no pressure you will be over-confident Having said that an India-Pakistan game does get treated differently” Recalling the World Cup semi-final against the same opposition in Mohali in 2011 Harbhajan wrote”I remember the India-Pakistan semi-final in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 I didn’t sleep the night before the match because I was constantly thinking about what people would say and how they would react if we were to lose I remember telling a few people to keep vigil outside my home so that the crowd doesn’t break anything should things not go our way One does think about such things too “People expect a lot more from you when you play Pakistan It seems like

in the signing of foreign players under 18 Real who called the ruling "profoundly unfair" and Atletico were also fined 360000 ($358000) and 900000 Swiss Francs respectively However the two Spanish giants — last season’s Champions League finalists — have announced they will launch a final appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) Representational image "The Fifa Appeal Committee has decided to reject the appeals lodged by Spanish clubs Atletico de Madrid and Real Madrid and to confirm in their entirety the decisions rendered by the Fifa Disciplinary Committee in the respective cases relating to the protection of minors" Fifa said in a statement Both clubs were sanctioned in January but by appealing had temporarily held off the ban during the transfer window which closed last month They will now not be able to register any new players in either of the next two windows in January 2017 and July-August 2017 before being able to do so once again in January 2018 Barcelona served a similar ban in 2015 with an appeal to CAS proving unsuccessful in their case European champions Real responded by saying they will now go to the CAS in an attempt to have the decision overturned "as quickly as possible" "The club regrets the decision on the ground that it is profoundly unfair and contrary to the most elementary principles of penal law" read a statement posted on their website "The club will begin the appropriate appeals procedure before the Court of Arbitration for Sport requesting that the decision be completely overturned with absolute confidence that said organisation will come to an entirely favourable decision "Real Madrid will request that the procedure be undertaken in an urgent manner in order to obtain a decision from the CAS as quickly as possible" Under international football rules players under 18 cannot be transferred to another country except in limited circumstances and all transfers need the approval of a special Fifa committee Atletico insisted they had such clearance from Fifa for the players under investigation "Our club does not agree with the ruling and therefore has decided to appeal before the Court of Arbitration for Sport" Atletico said in a statement "Our organisation wishes to state that one hundred percent of the licenses of our players who are part of this investigation and continue at the club have been regularised by Fifa itself receiving authorisation from the sub-committee to process the license and compete in different (under-age) categories" Atletico used the close-season window to make several new signings including those of France striker Kevin Gameiro from Sevilla and Argentina midfielder Nicolas Gaitan from Benfica Real had an unusually quiet summer in the transfer market although they did bring Spain striker Alvaro Morata back to the club from Juventus for around 30 million euros ($34 million) Rio de Janeiro:The Rio Paralympics next month is in a "precarious" state and faces more cuts to let it go ahead the head of the International Paralympic Committee said on Monday With a court having stopped Rio de Janeiro from transferring crucial funds to the Rio 2016 organising committee IPC president Philip Craven met government and city officials to get financial guarantees Representational photo AFP "Although the situation is pretty precarious rumours that the Games may not go ahead or that sports may be cut are totally unfounded and not true" said Craven said "If no extra funding is available then the organising committee will have to implement further cuts to the Paralympic Games on top of the cuts we have already made alongside the IOC and Olympics" he added Organisers have already cut transport and food costs to keep within budget Craven said Rio 2016 had committed to pay national committees promised grants by the end of the month "Failure to do so could result in a number of countries being unable to attend theParalympic Games an event they have been planning and preparing for for a number of years" he warned Rio’s mayor vowed Monday to fight a court ban on crucial funding for the event which runs from September 7 to September 18 A federal judge blocked the transfer of public funds to Rio 2016 alleging a lack of financial transparency An appeal is being lodged Mayor Eduardo Paes insisted the city would fund the Paralympics promising up to $47 million to bail them out if needed Funding Shame "It would be a shame for Brazil and for Paralympics sports and people with disabilities if we were not able to carry out the event" Paes told a news conference after a meeting with Craven Rio state authorities declared a "state of public calamity" in June to release emergency funds to finance the current Olympic Games But Paes reiterated on Monday that the city’s own finances are sound "Three weeks ago we verified that the committee does not have the resources to settle some of its accounts" he said "If necessary we will make an agreement to guarantee those funds" For the Paralympics "we are going to be very clear about where this money will be used" he said The budget allocated for the Olympic Games and Paralympics is about $23 billion Rio 2016 spokesman Mario Andrada said that travel grants for national Olympic committees that have to fly athletes to Rio is "the most urgent issue" "The first priority even before the appeal we are working on is to determine how much money is needed for the travel grant and how soon can we offer this" to the countries he said "What has affected the Paralympic Games was obviously low ticket sales and lack of sponsorship" Andrada said Rio city hall vowed in the build-up to the Olympics that the Rio 2016 committee would receive no public funds The pledge came after an outcry from Brazilians furious over the billions being spent on the Games in the middle of an economic crisis Islamabad: Ousted Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s party Monday accused Opposition leader Imran Khan of submitting fake documents in the foreign funding case against him in the Supreme Court after the cricketer-turned-politician vowed to resign if found guilty of corruption Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) Asif Kirmani hit out at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan saying "Imran Khan once said he would never want to be a [leader] like Sheikh Rasheed Now he has nominated the same man as the prime minister" File image of Imran Khan Getty Images Kirmani’s comments came a day after Imran’s party observed a "thanksgiving day to celebrate Pakistan’s victory against corruption" after the Supreme Court disqualified Nawaz Sharif on Friday Calling the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s rally on Sunday a "musical night" Kirmani said Imran had brought Quaid-e-Azam’s (Muhammad Ali Jinnah) Pakistan to the "brink of a disaster" "PTI is a fraud party Its leader is not ashamed to present fake documents in the [Supreme Court] This is the height of shamelessness" Dawn newspaper quoted Kirmani as saying "Imran Khan the nation is asking you why haven’t you declared your offshore assets Why are you concealing your assets Why are you still receiving gifts from your [divorced] wife" he questioned Imran Khan during the rally discussed the case against him in the court and had said "I will resign from the party if a single sentence of my statement before the judiciary is proven false" Speaking to the thousands of supporters gathered at the rally Khan praised the judiciary for its verdict against Sharif and said "We knocked on judiciary’s doors instead of taking to the roads because the SC judges asked us to come to the court" Kirmani said his party respects the Supreme Court’s decision which disqualified Nawaz Sharif as prime minister but "there is another court: the public And Nawaz Sharif will again win there" "Imran Khan your politics will end and you will be in jail once you are disqualified in the foreign funding case" he said Meanwhile

Tuesday directing WFI to hold a meeting with Sushil Kumar the decorated grappler’s hopes of competing at the Olympics seems almost over as the Federation is not keen on conducting a trial in the contentious men’s 74kg category saying it would set a wrong precedent and might "finish Indian wrestling" Following the HC directive the Wrestling Federation of India President (WFI) Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh decided to hold a meeting with the two-time Olympic medallist on Wednesday to sort out what has snowballed into a major controversy ahead of the mega-event in August Having already won two individual medals at the last two Olympics the 32-year-old is one of India’s biggest sportingicons but the WFI notwithstanding is keen on sending quota winner Narsingh Pancham Yadav to the upcoming Games Narsingh Yadav and Sushil Kumar the two men contending for the sole Olympic spot AFP "I will be conducting a meeting on Wednesday Earlier there was suppose to be a selection committee but now that the court has directed us to form a four-member committee we will meet and then put forward our opinion" Brij Bhushan told PTI on Tuesday The Delhi High Court said that a committee consisting of the President Vice President Secretary and the chief coach should meet Sushil at the earliest and since the federation was an autonomous body it should try and resolve the matter amicably The court has also sought the response of the Sports Ministry and WFI and asked them to file their affidavits before its next hearing on May 27 Making it clear that WFI would not like to conduct a trial Brij Bhushan said this practice may harm Indian wrestling severely "Till now a wrestler believes that if he/she brings a quota he/she will go to the Olympics But the day it would become a norm that even if one athlete brings a quota but someone else may go to the Olympics that day wrestling in India would be finished No one would work hard to bring a quota as the wrestlers may not feel secure" he insisted The WFI president also said that this ongoing furore has put qualified wrestlers in other division under pressure too "Because of this issue our other qualified wrestlers are also under pressure and not just the ones in 74kg Everyone is worried that if trial is conducted in one category then others will also demand for trials This is also not justified that we hold trial in just one weight division So all the grapplers who have qualified are disturbed and that is hampering their preparations" said Brij Bhushan On whether WFI is also under pressure Brij Bhushan said "No If people are blaming WFI I want to ask what we have done We have only forwarded the names of those who have bagged quota places If forwarding their names is an offence then yes I have committed that offence" He however conceded that finally if things don’t get sorted out WFI would accept the court’s decision "If things don’t get sorted ultimately whatever directive we get from the Court we will accept it" said Brij Bhushan Sushil had moved the court as the last resort as before approaching the Delhi High Court he had taken the matter to the doorsteps of Prime Minister’s Office Sushil had also appealed to the Sports Ministry IOA WFI and fans to give him a chance to undergo a trial for the Rio Games as according to the rules quota belongs to the country and not to a particular wrestler Sushil had argued that the government has spent a substantial amount of money on his training and even the federation has been asking him to keep practising Narsingh has been staking his claim to represent India at the Olympics since last year when he secured a quota place at the World Championship in Las Vegas after winning a bronze in 74kg Sushil who missed the event due to a shoulder injury has been demanding a trial Meanwhile it is also learnt that Babita Kumari who has qualified after Mongolian wrestler Sumiya Erdenechimeg failed the dope test in women’s 53kg freestyle has been pardoned for forfeiting her bout in a recent qualifying event and is now allowed to compete at the Rio Games Puerto Ricans say Trump’s disaster response was too slow too clumsy |
