    HISTORY CREATED IN THE FILED OF SPORTS

    Dipika Pallikal and Joshana Chinappa created history by winning the first-ever gold medal in squash but disappointment was in store for the four Indian boxers, including Olympic bronze winner Vijender Singh, who had to be content with a silver each in the 20th Commonwealth Games at Glasgow on Saturday.


    Dipika and Joshana stole the limelight with their historic feat as they beat Jenny Duncalf and Laura Massaro of England 11-6, 11-8 in the womens doubles squash final on the 10th day of competitions in this edition. It was the first squash medal for India in the Commonwealth Games.

    The Glasgow Commonwealth Games were hailed as "the best ever" on Sunday as the 11-day showpiece came to an emotional conclusion inside a chilly Hampden Park after 11 days of competition.

    An event long written-off as a dusty anachronism in the modern, profit-driven era of international sport ended with England on top of the medals table for the first time since 1986 and with rich plaudits ringing in its ears.

    "The Games have made us all very proud and truly brought our family together," said Prince Imran, president of the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF), during a closing ceremony which fused the pop of Kylie Minogue and poetry of Rabbie Burns.

    "Scotland, and Glasgow, you really have delivered in every aspect the best Games ever."

    Prince Imran's warm endorsement echoed similar praise earlier in the day from Mike Hooper, chief executive of the CGF, who described the event as "the stand-out Games in the history of the movement".
    With more than 4,700 athletes having competed for 261 gold medals on offer, the Commonwealth Games flag was then entrusted to officials of the 2018 Games to be hosted by Australia's Gold Coast.

    Last CWG India was at 2nd position with 38golds and 101 medals in all, England was at third position with 37golds and 142 medals in total. So it is home ground which is an added advantage. We did great, but there is a lot of potential which we need to work on in future.

    In addition, other factors may be there as wrestling team selection for CWG 2014 is still a point of discussion in the sports circles.

    India’s medal tally has Jatland imprint
    Chandigarh, August 4
    A tiny Haryana continues to a sports powerhouse of the country with sportspersons from the state bagging 22 of the 64 medals won by the Indian contingent in Commonwealth Games (CWG) at Glasgow.

    The state’s sports policy’s objective of liberal financial assistance and a catchy tagline of padak lao, pad pao (bring medal, get job) seem to have paid rich dividends. Haryana sportspersons bagged five out of 15 golds won by the Indian sportspersons. Of the 30 silver medals, 14 were won by sportspersons from the state. As for bronze medals, three out 19 medals landed in the state’s kitty.
    Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, a keen sportsman himself, was quick to recognise the sportspersons’ achievements, unveiling a bonanza in the shape of a significant hike in the award money in the midst of the Commonwealth Games on July 31. The award money for a gold medallisr was increased from Rs 15 lakh to Rs 1 crore and for a silver medalist from 10 lakh to Rs 50 lakh. For a bronze medallist, the award money went up from a meagre Rs 5 lakh to Rs 25 lakh.
    The achievement of state’s sportspersons was all the more creditable as all medals expect one (silver to Sardara Singh in hockey) came in the individual events — wrestling, shooting, athletics and boxing.
    All five golds came in the traditional sport of wrestling as Amit Kumar, Vinesh Phogat, Sushil Kumar, Babita and Yogeshwar Dutt bagged the top spot.
    Geetika Jakhar (wrestling), Bajrang (wrestling), Saty-awrat Kadian (wrestling), Lalita (wrestling), Sakshi Malik (wrestling), Anisha Sayyed (shooting), Gurpal Singh (shooting), Gagan Narang (shooting), Harpreet Singh (shooting), Sanjeev Rajput (shooting), Seema Punia (discuss throw), Vijender Singh (boxing), Mandeep Jangra (boxing) and Sardara Singh (hockey) bagged the silver medal.
    Pawan Kumar (wrestling), Gagan Narang (shooting) and Pinki Rani (boxing) managed to bring home the bronze medal.

    Hooda ki chamchagiri kar raakhi hai iss "Sharma" ne iss article mein !!!

    While, I am all in favor for rewarding these sportsperson with highest possible amount, but do not agree that Hooda's policy has got these medals.
    Cases like Geeta Balali, Vinesh Balali, Sushil Kumar etc and many others are mostly self driven sportsperson and their success can not be attributed to state govt policy alone.

    Still waiting for that promised job, says shooter Anisa
    New Delhi, August 4
    Anisa Sayyed doesn’t need to wait for long to succeed in a shooting range but her wait for a job seems to be turning into an endless one with the Haryana government dillydallying for the past three years, leaving the champion shooter with no option but to vent her frustration.

    The multiple Commonwealth Games winner, who clinched a silver in Glasgow to go with her record-breaking double gold in Delhi four years ago, though, is still living in hope. “I have been waiting for three years, waiting for that promised job. If they think I don’t deserve this then they should not keep me waiting. That’s not fair to an athlete who continuously strives for international success,” Anisa said.
    The 33-year-old Anisa took silver in the women’s 25 metre pistol event of the Commonwealth Games. In the same event, the gold was won by her “good friend” Rahi Sarnobat.
    Competing with a friend for the top prize is not a problem, but waiting for something that she richly deserves does make Anisa sad.
    “The file has not been processed since 2011, I am still hoping that I will get something out of it. I have met the chief minister (Bhupinder Singh Hooda) twice and he asked me to only concentrate in shooting, and the rest will be taken care of. Because of this I quit my job with the Railways after the Delhi CWG and also did not show interest in a job offered by Maharashtra government. Looking back I think those were mistakes,” she said.
    “I seriously hope that something will happen before we leave for the World Championships or at least the Asian Games,” Anisa added. — PTI

    Bhai anil,..i agree...

    BUT

    haryana is still better in sports in comparison of other states ...noone is giving 1 crore to a commonwelath gold medalist in India except haryana.............punjab was best in India in sports two decades back..but haryana surpassed punjab
    ..hoooda is not best but he is still better of its counterparts...whatever is the reason ..an easy money due to real state, proximity to delhi or other reasons in haryana...haryana is really flourishing..........noone is best..even in USA you can see beggars around

    in no other matters but haryana is really "number 1 haryana" in sports....
