Without much support from the authorities and fighting the odds with determination, India's dwarf athletes produced a fine performance in the recent World Dwarf Games in Guelph, Canada. The 21-member contingent returned with a haul of 36 medals, including 14 gold, 10 silver and 12 bronze. Joby Mathew of Kerala led the chart for India with six medals. Bengaluru's C V Rajanna won gold medals in the 200 metres and badminton singles. His state-mate Devappa More clinched gold in the 100 metres.

Bengaluru's Prakash M, who claimed gold in Boccia event, explained the struggles he had to endure just to reach the venue. "I didn't not even have a coach. I had to finance my journey through a loan of Rs 2,50,000 which I borrowed at an interest rate of 4 percent. My sister also contributed to my cause by ...

More success for Sanath 18.8.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Apart from Mumbai, who ended a two-year drought to clinch the title, the team that drew attention in the 2015-16 edition of the Ranji Trophy was Assam. The minnows of domestic cricket scripted an inspiring performance to reach the semifinal and the man guiding a bunch of young talents was Sanath Kumar. It was a historic moment for Assam cricket but despite the success, Sanath was axed by the Assam Cricket Association (ACA) the very next season. The new management asked the 53-year-old to accept a contract with a pay cut and after his refusal to accept the deal, ACA replaced him with Sunil Joshi for the 2016-17 season. Currently coaching Andhra, Sanath felt he was let down by the ACA. "I was actually disappointed with the way it ended because the previous management literally forced me to continue. Suddenly there were elections and when the new management took a decision like that it was too late for me. I was in a situation where I would have been without a job. It was very nice of Andhra to rope me in," ...

The decision was taken at a meeting held by Youth Empowerment and Sports Minister Pramod Madhvaraj in which officials of the department, NSD faculty, theatre persons and litterateurs took part.

Backstroker Srihari Natraj and breaststroke specialist Saloni Dalal continued their fine form to set new marks at the State Senior Aquatic Championships here on Thursday.
