2024 OLYMPICS IN INDIA??

Another scam in the waiting or is it the time for the Phoenix to rise from its ASHES. In the latest development, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been understood to be interested in organizing the 2024 Olympics (the biggest sporting event in the world) in India. India is being seen as a potential Asian Superpower. The International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach is supposed to meet Mr. Narendra Modi later this month to discuss India chances of hosting the 2024 Olympics. Bach has been quoted to say that, “How can we ignore a country of 1.2 billion.” He has also added that,” IOC is much more flexible and understanding now in considering venues, and is happy to have talks with Indian officials and stakeholders here during his visit.” read more

Incredible India!- Actually?

Aaaand it’s a six! , Yes it’s a goal!!, Oh no! We missed a basket. The most familiar one is? But obvious the first one, because we are in India. A nation known for its pluralistic, multilingual and a multi ethnic society is home for 1.2 billion people making it the world’s second most populous country. It’s also the origin for games like chess, snooker and other regional games. In spite of all these exceptional qualities of India we still lack in many things mainly sports. Why? Don’t we have good players? Don’t we have good sporting amenities? Doesn’t the government have enough funds? The answer to all these questions is simple. Government, sports federations, media are so much in love with cricket that they fail to understand or comprehend the existence of other games in our country. read more

The Influence of Music on International Sports

How does it feel when a man plays the same music over and over again, if they get a good hit or a shot and they supervise on playing it for the rest of their lives just because it works for them and the opposite happens if it doesn’t work out at all. A sport is absolutely necessary for every human being to stay fit but in today’s scenario everything has become so commercial that people have actually forgotten the ethics and basic spirit of any sport thereby scaring and killing the strength behind it. read more

Things a person should know before making sports a career

Choosing a career in sport could be tough. Studies too are not easy. In order to become a sportsperson, one must take the decision of playing a particular sport. We live in a society where parents stress more on education than sports. In our society, it is a norm that education is a safe and conventional route to pursue our career. Thus persons who want to further their career in sports need the inner edge, discipline and training to succeed. The best way to develop sport as a career is to find an activity of interest and start to pursue excellence in that area. read more

Survival of a Legend- Shivnarine Chanderpaul

Bleaguered England Cricket aim to get back to past glories

The English cricket team has endured a tumultuous few months. Ever since Mitchell Johnson steamed in at the Gabba and destroyed the English top order in that fateful morning in the first Ashes test, something hasn’t been quite right with them. Just wColin Graveshen it looked like the scars of the Ashes had healed with a thumping victory over India at home, a disastrous world cup showed English cricket in grim light again. The change at the helm of the ECB hasn’t helped either. The incoming chairman Colin Graves has openly contradicted the previous stance that Kevin Pietersen would not be considered for selection. This has led to Pietersen cancelling his IPL contract and rejoin Surrey in a bid to regain his place in the English team. Quite what will happen if Pietersen’s batting starts demanding selection, only time will tell. The undoubted friction that comes with him returning to a side captained by Alastair Cook won’t help matters either. It is believed that Cook played a key part in Pietersen’s sacking after the Ashes. The problem arises due to the fact that Cook has not been among the runs for over a year now and fans are clamouring for the inclusion of Pietersen even if it meant Cook being out of the side. It is quite a pity that it has come to this, as both batsmen sit atop the list of highest ever run scorers for England in tests. read more

Carbo-loading

Carbo-loading: Myth or Reality?

I’ve been around athletes for a while. I even work with one at the same company. And before any competition, this coworker of mine ingested large amounts of carbohydrates. I asked him why and he explained, when taking part in endurance competitions, athletes need to maximize the storage of glycogen in their muscles. When they put their body to work for over 90 minutes, they need all the energy they can get. So athletes consume large amounts of carbs to make sure they don’t run out of fuel. Sounds easy enough, doesn’t it? In fact, it’s not that simple. read more
