Top News When the world’s top video streaming service, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, 2016 1:41 pm Manpreet Singh has decided to take the plunge after SSCB allowed him to compete on the circuit.welcome in all national and international amateur events,former Asian Games silver-medallist Manpreet Singh has decided to take the plunge after one of Indian boxing’s biggest employers — the Services Sports Control Board (SSCB) — allowed its pugilists to compete on the circuit In a move that could set a precedent for otherinstitutional boards which are wary of letting boxersemployed with them compete on the professional circuit SSCB has finally relented “The SSCB and the Army Sports Control Board have allowedtheir boxers to compete in the professional circuit This movecame about because of Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar’s intervention He has sanctioned this decision” Brig P K Muralidharan Raja President of the Indian Boxing Council a licensing body for professional boxers revealed Brig Raja is here to meet officials of the Boxing Federation of India (BFI) to forge a “harmonious” equation with the national governing body for amateur boxers It is to be noted that AIBA after a recent meeting inLondon decided to allow professional boxers to compete in national events after the Olympic doors were thrown open for them earlier this year With the SSCB letting its boxers go professional at least four have taken the plunge Prominent among them is Manpreet who won the heavyweightsilver medal in the 2010 Asian Games He will compete in the cruiserweight on the pro circuit Also deciding to go professional is Som Bahadur Pun aformer Commonwealth Games silver-medallist Pun had beenrendered inactive owing to his ill-health Pun will be competing in the super middleweight category Joining him will be Sanjay Kolte a former world cadetsilver-medallist who won a gold medal at the 2010 World Millitary Games Kolte is also a multiple-time national champion and will be competing in the lightweight division Another name to join the professional bandwagon from the SSCB stable would be Santosh Harijan (super featherweight) “We had also requested for Suranjoy Singh but he is right now the chief coach of Navy and that has not quite worked out” Brig Raja said Speaking about how a professional boxing body would forgea working equation with BFI Brig Raja said “Given that AIBA has now broken all barriers for professional boxers it wouldbe good to have a larger pool of boxers to choose from The senior guys will have the option of turning pro so that theyoungsters get enough chances of proving their mettle And during trials both pros and amateurs can be pited against each other from where the best can go on to represent India” “All boxers tied up with IBC will be available for BFI They can take a call” he added The BFI on its part has already declared that it is not averse to letting professionals in after AIBA’s waiver “We obviously want a huge pool to pick from so when theAIBA has allowed professionals we will see how they can beassimilated” BFI President Ajay Singh had stated on theopening day of the ongoing National Championships For all the latest Sports News

don’t mind stripping down to the barest bikini silhouettes and strapping feathers on their heads as they shake and stir on the streets of Rio each Carnival Why should their Olympics be any more diffident Never self-conscious always intrepid Brazil is taking it on its chin the ugly criticism and painful appraisals of their preparedness before they reveal their beautiful selves to the gaping 4 billion expected viewership that will tune into this Olympics For no one doubts that come August 5 Rio will put on a spectacular show — at half the effort of the conscious self-effacing humour of London and perhaps half the money splurged by Beijing four years prior On the eve of South America’s first ever Olympics Rio is hoping for the storm of starting jitters to blow over “I don’t see any foreigners coming to Brazil because we are very well organised like the Japanese People come here to relax to have a sense of freedom to express themselves” said Agberto Guimares executive director of sport in the Rio Olympic Committee Unlike former 800m champion Sebastian Coe who helmed the London Games and aged 20 years in the process Guimares isn’t sweating the stuff — small or big — too much There’s nothing ostentatious at the Rio airport that pretends to welcome the world with fake smiles In fact Sao Paulo a southern stopover almost seems oblivious to what’s happening in the host city going about its mad rush of domestic travellers like it’s just another weekend The Australians came and blew their lids at the first sighting of an under-prepared athletes’ village But the Brazilians simply shrugged their shoulders accepted it was under-cooked and went about the repairs No offence-taking at the first world’s tantrum-throwing happened The Russians meanwhile are sitting at home and frothing in rage at the authorities’ blow-hot-blow-cold efforts at policing the doping menace that has kept some of them away from the Olympics And golfers and tennis players have lined up neat sundry reasons to avoid what they might have always intended to avoid — an out-of-season jaunt away from the calendar The Brazilians aren’t really losing sleep over that either: the bevy of volunteers at the airport admitted how they didn’t hold back their giggles when Usain Bolt arrived and a day later Rafael Nadal quietly fetched up This is sporting love in the time of Zika and most Brazilians would have you believe that they’ll gladly welcome the bold ones who come undeterred but hold no grudges against those who fail to show up In its scale and general tenor Rio 2016 is playing out like a sepia staccato film of the Olympics of the 70s and 80s For one there’s no last-minute whitewashing or artificial landscaping of roads leading to the Games And Brazil — one of the world’s most optimistic economies of the last two decades now wracked by recession and political flux — isn’t bending over backwards to make some statement of their emergence It’s a host country that’s willing to look ugly truths in the eye — the Zika virus the Guanamara bay pollution the political instability the economic slump protests terror worries doping dreads and the harsh assessment by complaining visitors “Yes we could have been more prepared and turned out better But we’ve done the best given the prevailing conditions” said a middle-aged volunteer Simone a lifelong resident of Rio adding that it will all be sorted once the Games start They are expecting communications to be erratic through the fortnight and tech teams aren’t beating themselves up over tomato red English faces turning more crimson every minute with each passing botch-up That the host nation speaks Portuguese seems to have calmed down everyone involved in a resigned-to-fate manner or a “susegad” sort of way that tourists lull themselves into in Goa In sport too Brazil is reprising the 50s through 90s taking this opportunity to celebrate Pele and Ayrton Senna not Olympics celebrities exactly but men unequivocally adored for what they did for sport and their country There’s “saudade” a vague feeling of melancholic nostalgia for the joy the two (and Guga Kuerten another man Brazilians can’t stop loving) brought to the nation — there are endless documentaries and grainy TV reruns on sports channels — even as beauty and the ugliness of life continue to wrestle each other like a pillow-fighting couple There’s acceptance that this is way bigger than the football World Cup — marked from the admission that this might not go as smooth And there’s hope though that pain will pave the way for pretty memories as the Games unfoldSuper model Giselle Bundchen is expected to be part of the opening ceremony and a leaked tidbit of her getting mugged as part of a skit on Rio’s notorious streets got panned despite its tangential attempt at heroising police who are expected to assure security to visitors The Brits flung an actor playing the Queen at their opening do four years ago to the strains of 007 and had her saved by James Bond It takes getting used to — military police pointing guns out of grim-coloured vehicles and sirens of federal police beeping from street corners — but Brazil’s having a go It’s a country that expects the rancorous English-speaking world to go berserk pointing to bad plumbing and dirty nooks of the Games Village But given that very little about sport — not the institutional doping not the Cold War-like West vs Russia doping slang match not the gargantuan MNC sponsorships or the high-profile golf pullouts — has remained remotely amateurish to justify the principles of the Games it’s just as well that Brazil puts its foot down and announces we-are-like-this-only Mayor Eduardo Paes has learnt his lessons from the pre-World Cup panning and is the first on the TV to announce problems before the media blares them out Brazilians are rejecting Olympics as a make-believe bubble of everything’s okay-ness Yes there will be bad plumbing poor broadband head-splitting telecommunications and abysmal dirt in some corner of the athlete’s village — the rest of Rio and its celebrated favelas are like that But there will also be song and dance And no one does that better than the hip-swaying Cariocas At best the world can say a little prayer for them and hope to wing it Like the Malawi athlete who was so delirious to have made it to Rio that he surprised the welcome
