She does not seem to hit the ground all that much. I am prepared to go toe-to-toe or take the match to the ground, wherever I think I have the advantage,” she said. Nonong Araneta re-elected as PFF president Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Dea is impressive on paper. She is a national wrestling champion and a two-time national Wushu Sanda champion with a decent 12-4 record in kickboxing.“I felt really nervous in my first bout. But when I saw my opponent was right in front of me and remembered all the people who supported me, I relaxed and slowly put my focus on winning the match,” Torres said.“I want to win again because I want to give back to my gym and the people who love and support me. I am competing for my country. Everything I do is for all of them and as long as I can do this, I will keep doing this.”ADVERTISEMENT Read Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Deepika, Sushil steal show as India regain second spot

first_imgThe fierce battle for gaining the second spot in the Commonwealth Games continued in earnest between India and England on the seventh day of competitions with the hosts edging in front by bagging four gold medals.Teenage archer Deepika Kumari upset an Olympic bronze medallist to win the recurve gold, Harpreet Singh clinched the 25m centre fire pistol gold, archer Rahul Banerjee grabbed the men’s individual recurve gold and world wrestling champion Sushil Kumar won the 66kg title by destroying all his rivals.Vijay Kumar bagged silver behind Harpreet, freestyle wrestler Anuj Kumar also got a silver in men’s 84 kg, trap shooter Manavjit Singh Sandhu secured a bronze while Jayanta Talukdar finished third behind Banerjee.Sania Mirza and Rushmi Chakravarthi beat compatriots Nirupama Sanjeev and Poojashree Venkatesh to secure the women’s doubles bronze in tennis and swell India’s medal kitty.Banerjee’s sister Dola finished third in women’s recurve and grappler Anil Kumar got the bronze in 55kg freestyle as India came up with another impressive display to jump over England and regain the second spot behind leaders Australia.Asian silver medallist Jai Bhagwan (60kg) and nine-time national champion Dilbag Singh assured India of two more boxing medals but defending champion Akhil Kumar made a shock exit in the Commonwealth Games by advancing to the semifinals today.Jai, a Commonwealth Championship gold-medallist, blanked Waheed Sogbamu of Nigeria 10-0, while Dilbag (69 kg) thrashed Botswana’s Moabi Mothiba 11-3 in while Akhil Kumar bowed out after losing to Olympic bronze-medallist Bruno Julie of Mauritius in the 56 kg quarterfinals.advertisementThe two boxers joined Amandeep Singh (49kg) and Suranjoy Singh (52kg), who won their quarterfinal bouts yesterday, in assuring themselves of their maiden CWG medals.The haul of four gold, two silver and five bronze medals took the Indian tally to 28-19-22 while England were once again made to play catch-up with a haul of 25-45-29. Australia were far ahead with 57-33-35.India were also just three gold medals short of overhauling their best-ever harvest of 30 at the Manchester Games in 2002 when three gold medals were awarded for each weight class, a practice that has been discontinued since.The day opened with 17-year-old Ranchi-born Deepika, daughter of an autorickshaw owner, stunning 2004 Athens Olympics bronze medallist Alison James Williamson 6-0, showing amazing precision and steady nerves in windy conditions to win her second gold of the Games.However, it was heartbreak for the 29-year-old Akhil who lost 5-7 to Julie after a see-saw battle. Ironically, Akhil had beaten Julie in the 2006 Melbourne Games final.Akhil was the first Indian to take the ring today and after an exhausting pre-quarterfinal win last night over European silver-medallist Iain Weaver of England, the Indian seemed tired.”A loss is a loss, I don’t have anything to say. I had beaten this same guy in the 2006 CWG finals, he must have done something right to win today,” said the feisty Haryana-boxer.”I gave my best and don’t think I could have done anything better. This is the way I fight,” he added when asked whether his natural style of keeping a low guard cost him the bout.Defending champion Geeta Rani failed to live upto her expectations as he finished a disappointing fourth in women’s 75+kg category weightlifting competition.Geeta Rani, who won the gold in the same weight category four years ago in Melbourne, cut a sorry figure before her opponents — Ele Opeloge of Samoa, who bagged the gold, silver medal winner Maryam Usman of Nigeria and Australia’s Deborah Acason (bronze).Sangrur-born Geeta Rani, who had won three silver medals in Asian Championship in 2004 and a bronze medal in 2003 Afro-Asian Games in Hyderabad, simply failed to match her own skills, ending with a combined lift of 235kg (100kg in snatch and 135 in clean and jerk).In badminton, women’s seed Saina Nehwal breezed through her match as India continued their rampaging run in the tournament with all the shuttlers in the singles and doubles category winning their respective matches.World number three Saina thrashed Sarah Thomas of Wales 21-5 21-9 to reach closer to her first Commonwealth games gold, while Melbourne bronze medallist Chetan Anand beat Nigerian Ola Fagbemi 21-12 21-6 in 21 minutes to stay on course of bettering his record at the sporting extravaganza.Debutants P Kashyap and Aditi Mutatkar also stormed into the third round in the singles event with straight-game victories in their second round match.–with PTI inputslast_img read more

Few fans will get to see WC matches

first_imgMost tickets have gone to ICC, sponsors and local body members.Genuine Indian cricket fans have perhaps never been treated like the way they are for the upcoming World Cup as commercialism becomes more and more ruthless. Few tickets are available for those who buy them from across the counter while official sponsors and other stakeholders get the lion’s share. Consider this: In the 37,000- capacity MA Chidambaram Stadium, only 3,300 tickets are available for the general public and 4,000 seats at the 63,000-pluscapacity Eden Gardens in Kolkata. In Mumbai, just 4,000 seats are meant for fans at the Wankhede Stadium that can accommodate 31,000 spectators. The worst-affected among the genuine fans are those who have no access to the internet over which a good proportion of the tickets/packages are being sold. The rich and thmighty have several options to watch the best of the 49 matches.Ever since the International Cricket Council (ICC) took control of all major global tournaments, in 2003, the world body gets a large number of tickets , for its global partners, television rights holders, and other stakeholders. Host country boards now have little option but to toe the ICC line in exchange of a share of the profit from these tournaments. Kashi Viswanathan, secretary of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA), said that his body has many commitments to meet. “The total capacity is 37,000 and out of this, the ICC will take 2,450 tickets, in addition to the 10 per cent of the total capacity that is (compulsorily) sold on kyazoonga. com. Then we have to give 1,270 tickets to ICC sponsors, plus whatever else they demand,” Viswanathan told MAIL TODAY. “We also have to give passes to government and security agencies involved in organising the matches, TNCA club members and member-secretaries of the clubs. We’ve 25 clubs and each one gets 180 and we’ve commitments towards others,” he said. “That leaves 3,300 seats for the public.” Kolkata fans are only slightly better than those in Chennai. “CAB has 20,000 individual members who will get tickets, and 10,000 will go to member clubs. Further, 1,270 tickets go to sponsors and 10 per cent (3,600) of the total capacity to official travel agents Cricket Logistics, besides other commitments,”Goutam Dasgupta, incharge of ticketing, told MAIL TODAY. “After giving compulsory free-of-cost tickets, 4,000 tickets are left for the public.” Even ICC president Sharad Pawar-headed Mumbai Cricket Association has not given any consideration to the lay fan for the three matches, including the final, it is hosting. Here too, only 4,000 seats – or, who knows, it may be even less – go on public sale. But Punjab fans will be better off. “The Mohali stadium has a capacity of 27,000. There are only about 200 members of the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) and about 750 or so tickets will go to them and the rest to the public,” claimed PCA treasurer GS Walia. On the other hand, Cricket Logistics officials are happy with the huge demand for match packages. “The sales are really good with the most popular matches being the final, the two semifinals, the quarter-final in Ahmedabad, and all of India’s group matches,” managing director John Davison told MAIL TODAY. The relocation of the India-England game from Kolkata to Bangalore, however, has forced some English fans to call off their visit. “Approximately 50 per cent of 4,000 people have cancelled their trip,” said Davison.NOIDA-based TUI India, an official travel agent, is doing roaring business. “We’ve sold out 4,000 packages meant only for India matches. About 400-500 tickets are left, but that is expected as India is a ‘late market’ and the packages are non-refundable. I’m confident the rest will be sold soon. We couldn’t have asked for more,” said COO Rajiv Duggal.advertisementlast_img read more

Final destination

first_imgWhile the wedding album becomes an ageless reference point for your youthful charm and rosy beauty, the real journey with Prince Charming picks up pace only with a memorable post-nuptial trip. A smart bride planning a destination honeymoon will always choose nymph-like elegance over sunburns, hay-like hair and fashion disasters.,While the wedding album becomes an ageless reference point for your youthful charm and rosy beauty, the real journey with Prince Charming picks up pace only with a memorable post-nuptial trip. A smart bride planning a destination honeymoon will always choose nymph-like elegance over sunburns, hay-like hair and fashion disasters. A little bit of pre-honeymoon planning and prudence can promise a fairy tale end to your story. This month experts share their views on how to make a style statement on your honeymoon.Tropical sunsetsThink tropics, think high temperatures and humidity. A romantic sneak out against the backdrop of radiant sunlight and torrential rains could turn out to be sensuous and sublime or horrid, depending on your skill at preparing yourself for the moments you want to freeze in time. Save your beautiful saris and favourite pair of jeans for more regular occasions. Don a kaftan to look like an Arabian enchantress. Originally adorned by the sultans of Istanbul, kaftans in their modern avatars instantly transform you into a celestial muse, while raising your comfort levels and seduction quotient. Floral, embroidered or plain solids-choose and charm.Mini-skirt, halter one-piece, off-shoulder dress or long skirt-all these are variations of a single, magical piece called the sarong. Suitable for all body shapes, a sarong can be adjusted with style to deflect attention to a chiselled torso or gorgeous legs. Pack light and look enticing with this trend that has deservingly survived over six centuries.However, if your style is more casual and chic, and you’re planning to tan on the beach, then go for an over-sized t-shirt and snug shorts. Worn over a swim-suit or otherwise, these will eroticise your look in a jiffy. Effortless and easy to carry, this combination is sure to make heads turn as you flaunt your toned legs.Glow wormSafeguard, cleanse and nourish your skin to look your best. Shield your skin against the pitiless sun with an SPF 20+ sunscreen and avoid oily cosmetic products. Exfoliating caked up skin is a must so use a gentle make-up remover. Remember that dry skin tends to improve in humid weather. Hence it requires less oil based moisturising than usual.advertisementRoman holidayCool breeze, pleasant sunshine and just the right amount of rainfall. The only thing that can queer the field is bad planning. The safest yet most stylish option for a European honeymoon is going back to the classics. A knee length tunic or a well-fitted shirt with form-fitting trousers will make you look both elegant and irresistible. Tried, tested and followed by generations of women, classic chic can do no wrong. Stick to colours like beige, white, navy blue and purple. Black of course is synonymous with grace.It is important for a couple honeymooning in Europe to make friends with the rain. If wet denims and drenched dresses is not exactly what you want, then go for a trendy trench coat. Gabardine, thick cotton or leather-flaunt the very latest. For romantic evening dinners, ditch the regular and indulge in something opulent. Gift yourself a cherished memory with a picture-perfect you in an evening gown for this special occasion.Glow wormBe gentle to your skin against the biting wind. Use a cream-based cleanser to remove make-up and avoid using alcohol-based astringents, wipes and colognes. Remember to wear sunscreen, preferably one that moisturises. Guard yourself against the penetrating UV rays of the stark, snowy slopes.Call of the wildAmid the chilly breeze, snowcapped mountains, lush green fields and rocky ter rain, you can experience the joy of a warm and cozy honeymoon. As the pleasant cold wind brushes against your cheeks and turns the tip of your nose icy red, make sure that you are cuddled up in thermals, embroidered jackets, pashmina shawls and windcheaters. Covering up well is always a good idea because no one wants to spend their honeymoon shivering and sneezing, all because you weren’t prepared.Hand in hand with your beloved, as you trek through the rocky terrain to the hill top, sporty shoes like Tod’s, track pants and your most comfortable pair of jeans are a must. Don’t forget to carry your mufflers, caps and gloves with you to avoid constant headaches and painful blisters, which can result from exposure to cold winds. Make sure you break the monotone of the track suit with some colourful options for caps and gloves.Glow wormHill stations call for ample moisturising. Pack in those fragrant body moisturisers, lip balms, hand and foot creams. Since hilly areas supply plenty of fresh air, your skin radiates naturally. Having survived cake-up sessions during the bustle of your wedding ceremonies, your skin deserves a break. Let it breathe, go bare faced and flaunt your beautiful skin. Stick to a basic sunscreen to avoid getting burnt by the seemingly innocuous sun. And remember to hydrate constantly. A honeymoon is quality time spent with your partner away from all that crowds your life back home. Looking fresh and feeling good about yourself are thus important factors when you are getting to know someone so intimately. Smart planning, which involves dressing for the weather and occasion as well as accessorising well, will save you the trouble of last-minute shopping trips at expensive stores abroad. Besides, if you’re well prepared, and make your beauty regime effortless, you’re sure to woo and charm your husband and make your honeymoon a holiday that both will cherish for a lifetime.advertisementTropical1.

Tata Indica eV2 launched with a mileage of 25 km a litre

first_imgTata Motors has cut the prices of its compact car Indica eV2 by Rs 23,000 with the launch of a refreshed version, at a time when other auto makers have either raised their product rates or are mulling to do so.”Tata Motors today launched the refreshed Tata Indica eV2… The Tata Indica eV2 has been made even more economical with a reduction in price by Rs 23,000,” the company said in a statement.The price range now starts at Rs 4,01,162 for the base variant and goes up to Rs 4,87,619 (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the top-end variant, it added.The company claims that the India eV2, powered by a 1,396 cc common rail diesel engine, gives a mileage of 25 kilometre per litre of fuel.”The car is also available with an MPFI petrol engine to provide customers with a wider choice. Both the engines are compliant with Bharat Stage IV emission norms,” it added.Some of the changes that the company has made in the refreshed version include new exteriors, stylish headlamps, new front bumper, integrated stop lamp and alloy wheels.Tata Motors’ move to reduce prices of one of its existing models by introducing a new variant is in contrast to other car makers including Honda Cars, Maruti Suzuki, General Motors and Audi India, who have wither raised the prices of their vehicles or in the process to do so, mainly due to adverse rupee movement.Honda Cars India has raised the prices of its three models — Brio, Jazz and City — by up to 2.6 per cent with effect from October 1.The country’s largest car maker Maruti Suzuki India had also said it would hike the prices of its vehicles and it was working out the details.General Motors India had said it would increase the prices of all its models from October 1 to offset the impact of rising input costs and currency fluctuation.Luxury car maker Audi had hiked the prices of its sports utility vehicle Q3 by up to two per cent, translating into an increase of Rs 50,000, from this month.advertisementlast_img read more
