Once there, a very physical one. The doughty,Dong Geon Lee,Left Corner:Anil Kumar New Delhi: In a big boost to India’s para-athletes the International Paralympic Committee today gave them permission to compete at international competitions under the IPC flag in spite of the ban slapped on the national body In a letter to the sports ministry the IPC "appreciated" the government’s suggestion to set up an ad-hoc committee to run paralympic affairs in the country and sought the details of persons who can be part of such a panel A file photo of India’s Paralympics team at Beijing 2008 AFP Immediately after the IPC suspended the Paralympic Committee of India on April 17 due to internal bickering the sports ministry had followed suit to de-recognise the PCI for shabby treatment of para-athletes during the National Para-Athletics Championships in Ghaziabad in March Subsequently the ministry had written a letter to the IPC proposing to set up an ad-hoc committee to run paralympic affairs in the country and to arrange for a mechanism for Indian para-athletes to take part in international events with Sports Authority of India sending entries of such athletes "In order not to penalise Indian athletes we have decided to enable athletes who are already licensed in our SDMS (Sport Data Management System) to participate in competitions These athletes will not represent their country but will be competing under the IPC flag for the moment" IPC Chief Executive Officer Xavier Gonzalez said in the letter to the sports ministry "We take note that the Government of India has also suspended PCI We do appreciate the concern about the athletes and would like to assure that we also have their best interest in mind and we will make sure they are not too affected by this sanction" the letter said The IPC’s approval would benefit around 300 Indian para-athletes whose names are already there in the IPC Sport Data Management System (SDMS) for this year including the likes of 2012 London Paralympic silver medallist H N Girisha 2004 Athens Paralympics gold winner Devendra Jhajharia and 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games medallists Rajinder Singh Rahelu and Sakina Khatun "Each year every national body will have to enter names of para-athletes to the SDMS for IPC to grant license We already have around 300 Indian para-athletes who have already got license in view of the now-postponed Indian Open Para Games (which was to be held early this month)" said PCI Secretary General J Chandrashekar Three international events – IPC Swimming World Championships in Glasgow IPC Shooting World Cup in Croatia and IPC Powerlifting Asia Open Championship in Kazakhstan – are lined up in July for Indian para-athletes to take part They will be followed by the high-profile IPC Athletics World Championships in Doha in October All these international events are qualifying events for the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games Regarding the sport ministry’s suggestion to set up an ad-hoc committee to run Paralympic affairs in the country the IPC said "We do appreciate the suggestion of creating and ad-hoc committee to administer Paralympic matters and would gladly appreciate support in establishing this body The world body also requested contact details of the person to start working towards this in the letter a copy of which was also marked to the sacked PCI President Rajesh Tomar who was removed by the national body in its Annual General Meeting in Bangalore on May 17 through a No Confidence Motion The IPC said the suspension of the PCI will remain until the infighting within the national body is stopped "We keep receiving communications and documents from both groups involved in the dispute as well as other parties we cannot identify We would like to clarify that the suspension of PCI is maintained and will remain so until we have identified a solution to the situation" the IPC said "Our intention is to reform PCI and start anew with a refreshed organisation with good grounds to evolve and develop para-sports in India" it added There is also another faction of Paralympic Committee of India headed by BJP Member of Parliament Rao Inderjit Singh which had called

play and ideas about footballing evolution In his first season in Spain he won three titles – the league Copa del Rey and the European Super Cup Barcelona’s style of play was a blend of highly technical and good understandingof the game The kind of football other teams in the league were envious of No long balls no glory diagonal balls but just simple quick passing Keeping the ball on the deck in other words Spain’s Abel Ruiz celebrates with his teammates Getty Images Over the years Spain have played with the same philosophy which worked wonders for the team They played with high-intensity passing exploited gaps and never relied on the direct approach Even at the club level apart from Barcelona the likes of Sevilla Real Zaragoza and Athletic Bilbao have embodied the same kind of footballsince the last decade or so The national team however has been the one to get the most out of the ‘tiki-taka’ concept which helped them lift the 2008 UEFA Euro 2012 World Cup and the 2012 UEFA Euro titles The three-time UEFA U-17 European Championshipswinners too have managed to bear fruit from similar approach At the U-17 World Cup in India Spain have continued the same pattern week in and out to become one of the clinical sides in the competition The La Roja registered a comprehensive 3-1 win over Mali thanks to Abel Ruiz’s heroics and not to forget the plethora of chances created from the middle by sticking to their short passing and quick movements strategy In the battle of the continental champions the one who defended well would come out victorious Mali were under pressure since the first minute of the match when Abel Ruiz simply shrugged of the lanky Ibrahim Kane to cross it beautifully for Sergio Gomez whose powerful volley was denied by goalkeeper Youssouf Koita Ruiz was just getting warmed up There were a few long balls as well but not many as Mali captain Mamadou Samake was fielded in the center of the park to block short passing between Spanish midfielders The tiki-taka troubled the Malian defence at times but it was Cesar Gelabert’s sprint from the right that forced Abdoulaye Diaby to commit a foul inside the box When Ruiz is taking a penalty there was always going to be one outcome Hestepped up from the spot and drilled his fifth goal of the tournament to hand Spain a well-deserved lead in the 19th minute The Malian defence was all over the place a couple of misplaced passes had coach Jonas Komla scratching his head at the half-hour mark Mali’s reputation of being a speedy and physical team went for a toss Despite sharing 50-50 possession split Mali were unable to break the Spanish defensive unit There was a Gilabert masterclass once again just before the half-time The 17-year-old winger saw an opening and quickly slid it between Kane and Diaby who failed to communicate at the back allowing Ruiz to continue his run and place a low shot just inside the far post It was a Toni Kross-esque finish to double La Roja’s lead in the 43rd minute The fluidity in the middle and accuracy was in full swing There was no way Mali would get the ball off the Spanish midfield Moving the ball in intricate patterns with sharp one-touch or maybe two-touch passes caused a headache for Mali "We like to keep the ball and move with it" Spanish coach Santiago Denia would say The second-half started with Mali as the strongest side creating chances but nothing to show for after registering just a single shot on the target in the first 45 minutes There was a passage of play where Spain would launch a couple of long balls out of nowhere for a counter-attack It was something that the spectators have never seen from Denia’s young La Roja But the purposeful plan kept Spain in control of the ball while Mali chased down and were left with little energy to make quick runs It was in the 62nd minute when Cheick Doucoure’s stunning strike could have changed the outcome of the match had the referee allowed the goal The replay showed that the ball did hit the underside of the crossbar and landed just inside the goal-line Mali were clearly robbed of what could’ve arguably been the goal of the tournament The Malian dugout was furious when the replay was shown on the big screen some of the staff members ganged up against the referee who in return brandished a yellow card to one of them The senior tournaments have the luxury of goal-line technology but not the oneslike FIFA U-17 World Cup Komla did not comment but Denia said: "I understand if the coaches were upset but I don’t know if it would have changed the game We have to respect the referee’s decision But we might consider not to show the replay on the big screen inside the stadium in order to not to influence the referee coaches or fans The outcome of the game would have changed since Mali were starting to run past the Spanish defence at times only to fluff the finish A 2-1 scoreline around the 65th minute surely would have made the contest interesting In the 71st-minute Sergio Gomez breezed past two Mali players and squared it for an unmarked Ferran Torres who then scored Spain’s third and that was game over for the West African side Mali still pressed and were in search of a consolation goal which they scored via a close-range finish from Lassana N’Diaye Spain switched off for a few minutes just after their third goal however they again sprinted through the middle to create an opening for the forwards Denia’s bunch frustrated the Malians around the 80 to 90th minute stretch with silky short passes between the midfielders and wingers It was ajob well done for Spain despite Mali creating a total of 29attempts throughout the match Ruiz was very much the star man terrorising the defenders whenever the ball was on his feet Credit to the Spanish defence who restricted Mali to just four shots on target The team were excellent in almost every aspect of the match especially merciless up front The win now sets up a repeat of the European U-17 final between Spain and England The La Roja nicked a win via penalties a few months ago but the U-17 final will be a different ball game altogether "We know our opponent We have played England before in the European final they are a very strong unit but we will have to play with a lot of focus" Ruiz concluded By: AP | Updated: December 10 2016 10:14 am Winter Olympics 2014 were held in Sochi and Russia need to perform well at home (Source: AP File) Top News After six months of doping investigations Richard McLaren delivered an emphatic verdict on Friday: Russia has “hijacked” sporting competitions for years cheating rivals out of medals and deceiving spectators A 144-page report backed up by 1166 supporting documents was sent by McLaren to the World Anti-Doping Agency building on his initial findings in July into Russia’s state-sponsored doping program Here is a breakdown of McLaren’s case against Russia: India vs England Live Score THE CATALYST:Four years out from hosting the Winter Olympics Russia was embarrassed by an 11th-place finish in the medals standings at the 2010 Vancouver Games With no time to cleanly enhance athlete performance in Sochi Russia had to rely on its scientists and secret service agents known as “magicians” to subvert WADA processes to power the country to the top of the standings The doping deception continued through to the 2012 Summer Olympics in London THE SCALE:More than 1231 samples reported by a Moscow laboratory to the sports ministry as containing a prohibited substance were recorded as negative tests on the WADA database or never reported at all And at least 246 athletes were “knowingly participating” in the manipulation of results according to McLaren At the London Olympics 15 Russian medal winners were identified as being part of a deception and 10 have already been stripped of their medals THE METHODS:Grigory Rodchenkov the head of Moscow’s anti-doping laboratory was leading a double life In public Rodchenkov was being acclaimed for his work detecting steroids while “secretly developing a cocktail of drugs with a very short detection window” ahead of the London Olympics McLaren reported Still retesting of samples from the 2008 and 2012 games has caught dozens of Russians whose samples still contained older substances Rodchenkov has previously informed McLaren that urine samples for Russian athletes at the 2014 Games were swapped out for clean samples through a “mouse hole” in the wall at a laboratory in Sochi Late-night bottle tampering was conducted by FSB agents leaving no sign of scratches or marks to untrained eyes Expert testimony details how “thin strips of medal” could be used to push up a ring around the bottle’s neck and photographs show what are claimed to be telltale scratches left by the process The Russians kept supplies of urine when athletes were not doping So when they did cheat those supplies could be used to replace the dirty A samples The A samples would be diluted with salt or even Nescafe coffee granules to match the gravity and appearance of dirty B samples Evidence of tampering emerged when samples showed salt levels above and below levels that were “physiologically possible” in healthy humans And DNA analysis showed that athletes’ samples even contained urine from opposite sexes THE GUILTY There are hundreds of pages of emails allegedly between Rodchenkov and state officials listing athletes who have tested positive and discussing whether to “save” them from punishment or “quarantine” them and let disciplinary processes take their course However almost all of the athletes’ names are redacted so as not to prejudice their privacy or future disciplinary proceedings RUSSIAN REACTION Vitaly Smirnov the veteran Olympic official appointed by President Vladimir Putin to oversee Russia’s doping reforms and the sports ministry issued denials that Russia ran a state-sponsored doping system For all the latest Sports News download

News India’s men’s team hockey captain rued that his side failed to make the most of the penalty corners they got late in the 1-2 loss against the Netherlands in a Pool B match of the Olympic Games on Thursday Rogier Hofman’s 32nd minute goal was cancelled out by Indian drag-flicker VR Raghunath in the 38th minute Penalty corner specialist Mink van der Weerden scored the winner for the Dutchmen in the 54th minute In their bid to equalise India removed goalkeeper Sreejesh to bring in an extra outfield player and their attack was fruitful earning them as many as five back-to-back penalty corners But penalty corner specialists Raghunath and Rupinder Pal Singh failed to convert them as India suffered second loss in four Pool B games “We took out the goalkeeper four minutes before the end of the game as a strategy because that adds a player to your team and whether we lose by 2-1 or 3-1 does not matter In the dying moments you want to go all aggressive to save the match” Sreejesh told reporters after the game “We got many opportunities even playing with nine players but unfortunately we could not convert the penalty corners that we got It was not a good day for us It was rather a bad day” Despite the loss India remained in the third spot with six points while the Netherlands moved to the top spot with 10 points Two-time defending champions Germany second in the table with three wins and the Netherlands are the two teams who have already secured their positions in the quarter-finals India will play Canada in their final pool game where even a draw will be enough to take them to the quarter-finals If they lose against the Canadians it will boil down to goal differences Chief coach Roelant Oltmans said that his wards will come out fresher to seal the deal against Canda “Tomorrow you will see a fresh India” an optimistic Oltmans said Reacting to the game Oltmans said that losing Raghunath and Sunil for indiscipline for 10 minutes and five minutes respectively due to yellow cards in the third quarter changed the momentum of the match as it allowed the Dutchmen to build further pressure on his team that had only eight outfield players India had also suffered due to yellow cards in their previous games Oltmans was also worried by the problem of getting cards at crucial moments “We were the attacking side until we got two yellow cards in the game That was a clear change in the game I am concerned that we are getting too many yellow cards Before that the game was in our favour” Oltmans rued “Getting cards is an area I am not happy with Small areas where we are still lacking but we are close to show that we are well among the top teams in the world We should be proud how in a tough situation we made it” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express
