Indonesia and Australia. Related News It will go down in history as Indian badminton’s famous mic drop – beamed out of Australia and witnessed by many at home on TV Kidambi Srikanth had just beaten Chinese Olympic and World champ Chen Long in a final of a Super Series He celebrated the triumph by spreading his arms looking skywards like he owned this universe and sent his racquet tumbling to the floor with slow-mo finality His smashing slashing racquet had done all its talking over three tournament-weeks and the country’s other men’s singles players – HS Prannoy slaying reputations Sai Praneeth hitting the peak – were determined to end all the fretting about their abilities to win big The Indians had arrived There are bigger landmarks in Indian shuttle – PV Sindhu’s being the biggest: a silver at the Olympics Then the twin All Englands by Prakash Padukone and Pullela Gopichand like spectacular sightings of Haley’s Comet And of course the sheer consistency of India’s biggest badminton superstar Saina Nehwal winning titles after titles year after year for over a decade But ‘Srikanth bt Chen Long’ of that Sunday morning was an advent of a different kind It’s too early to talk big coach Gopichand says adding with a sobering tinge that the upcoming World Championships and future All Englands and Olympics remain the definitive ambitions More on that later but first a quick recap of what you might’ve missed in Indian badminton’s men’s singles since Gopichand’s All England win The blips on the radar while you were sleeping: the strapping Anup Sridhar had a big game and no sparkling silverware He beat Olympic Champion Taufik Hidayat during the 2007 World Championships after having thrice lost to him That day the freshly appointed coach Gopichand would tell Anup to hold back his two best shots – the down-the-line smash and the cross-court service return – until 16-16 so he could spring a surprise on Hidayat Having lulled the legend into predictable responses the Indian star would bring out the big weapons and come from behind to win the decider and the respect of the world The titles though never stacked up Arvind Bhat was at the fag end of his career in 2014 and recalls discussions about taking a set off or winning the next round than staking claim on titles when touring India hadn’t won big abroad since Gopichand and Bhat would string together 6 good matches over everyone save the Dominant 3 of that era to claim the German Open Parupalli Kashyap had scalped big names like Chen Long and Jan O Jorgensen here and there and made 7 semifinals of Super Series He chuckles about the ‘random s*&^’ like strings breaking or opponent blitzing blind shots to the lines that would ensure he would sit in the stands and applaud even as Saina Nehwal forged further winning finals Until in 2014 when in the semis of the Commonwealth Games against Rajeev Ouseph he finally defended out of his (attacking) skin getting back more than 20 shuttles to finally win Incidentally Gopi was there too He had one eye on Kashyap and the other on PV Sindhu and a third on Gurusai Dutt as matches overlapped Srikanth of course beat Lin Dan in China famously and then plunged to 9 first-round defeats in the next two years while Sameer Verma (Hong Kong) and Ajay Jayaram (Korea) fell at the last finals hurdles stubbing the big headlines HS Prannoy Rank: 23 There’s the big title to be won for shuttle’s big smasher the hulking Prannoy Not only does he hit hard he also retrieves maniacally He took out Olympic finalists on successive days in Indonesia but will need to keep his confidence high and temperament even if he has to fulfil his potential and win a title There are too many runner-up finishes to not want to break out of that pattern for the mammoth stroker HS Prannoy had a killer smash that slayed all in the juniors as he won silver at the Youth Olympics though he plateaued in the world of men But perhaps the biggest blink-and-miss is B Sai Praneeth Playing a late night first round match at the All England against long-time World No 1 Lee Chong Wei the talented touch-artist who’d beaten Taufik as a teen would score a sensational upset against the Malaysian “By the time the next edition’s papers came in India I’d played a very early morning (and very rubbish) second round match and gotten thrashed already So no one remembers me” Sai Praneeth recalls chuckling wildly Something changed these last two months in men’s singles badminton after years This summer the Indian men started winning titles So what was brewing “It is down to the amount of work you put in in training If you are physically stronger and know that you won’t tire you will have the confidence to deal with anything on the court for however long it takes” It is Gopichand’s eternal refrain and it comes with its limitations of dogma but no one – save Saina whose base was this very system – has figured a viable alternative With results showings even the doubters change their mind The last six months have thrown up results in the form of Sai Praneeth and Srikanth winning titles as well as HS Prannoy scalping big names on back to back days Unlike in the past Gopi now has a helping hand rather a co-mastermind Last winter in a coup of sorts Mulyo Handoyo the Indonesian former coach to Hidayat was roped in Taufik was a dazzler on court – a misleading quality masking the hours of prep-work that went behind creating magic Srikanth with his jump smash Prannoy with his power-backhand and Sai Praneeth with oodles of deceptive trickery were about to learn that pure skill wasn’t enough to win January 2017 – was the month when the Gopi curriculum got a tweak Sai Praneeth Rank: 18 Truckloads of stroke making talent is now supported by improved fitness as India’s second Super Series winner lines up at the Worlds in August with no dearth of scalping pedigree He’s beaten the big names of the world and shown resilience in learning the art of patience necessary to win titles He can still get stronger and will remain a treat to watch for his sheer talent though he’s spoiling for a scuffle to beat a non-Indian in another SS final soon to prove his mettle The first off the blocks was Sai Praneeth who Gopichand had asked to stay put at the academy instead of travelling to Europe Later Srikanth and Prannoy were urged to skip senseless travelling and first-round-losses in favour of training One exacting week blurring into the next is how Sai Praneeth remembers training – the hardest he’s ever done since starting at the academy in the coach’s first batch “Saturday-Sundays are not holidays like for normal people we actually recover” is his preamble to a breathless description “The Monday-Tuesday sessions are extremely tough by Wednesday morning we’re out Thursday Friday we push push against limits Friday evening is the worst – we have to run on the ground against time If we don’t the clock starts again” You wait for him to exhale but he chants on “you would think after the run Oh My God it’s over but no After the run is the high-intensity court session” It’s how these men – whose first instinct is to kill the shuttle in a flash – have gotten used to lasting longer rallies and not flubbing the end stages Narrow losses – like losing from 19-all – are not glorified anymore Besides Mulyo and the younger Indonesian Hariawan Gopichand has help from Sidharth Jain and Amrish Shinde former players who are chipping in with backroom preps now It’s about quality multi-feeding – like cricket’s tireless throwdowns to batsmen “It’s 5 hours with breaks 15 hrs intense stroke practice” Jain explains “So say once Srikanth is done with his strokes he has to move to the next court and act as feeder to another player Even when feeding you can’t make mistakes so you stay continuously tough even when tired and last session there’s no let up in intensity” he adds The idea of multi-shuttle is to increase court-speed and to improve the ability to return shuttles at faster clip It also enhances lung capacity “The boys are learning to play these strokes under such high pressure that in a match situation they aren’t cracking” explains Shinde “These are strokemakers But they’re learning to last to be in a position to play those strokes” Earlier it was down to one coach feeding – and with 20 wards needing the same intensity Now on any given weekday morning 9 courts witness whirring activity as shuttles take flight and are smashed to pulp – but only after a long rally Mulyo’s entry has freed Gopichand to focus on every shuttler minutely Though initially the new system had faced teething troubles “There were initial doubts about specific drills” Prannoy recalls the struggle to adjust to this new-found personalised attention “Some communication gap and we didn’t know why we were doing a certain dribble-smash-drill No one can do blind training and we needed clarity so Gopi bhaiyya sat us down and explained the thinking behind every stroke and why you need to do certain things in what match situations” he adds Earlier accustomed to blindly hitting his way out of trouble Prannoy cut a calmer frame against Chong Wei and Chen Long He was now thinking through his final points patiently “But Mulyo’s passionate about every session the energy and curiosity just rubs off” Prannoy adds of heady days spent deconstructing rallies There’s sessions allotted to stroke-corrections evenings full of gym-work agility shadow skipping and the dreaded twice-a-week track-runs “When Mulyo told me my game is like the top-class players I was elated His next line was my fitness is awful” Sai Praneeth remembers Indonesians don’t mince words because they come equipped with direct candid English and have no time for euphemisms Sai’s bubble of ‘immense talent’ needed to be burst before he won at Singapore Mulyo was ready with a smile and a prick-pin A thousand needles though had poked painfully when at the turn of the century Gopichand had attempted to manouvre all this into his own schedule as a player “They don’t understand excellence in sport is very finicky Small things matter big time in sport – we hardly got shuttles on time Simple things would take a long time so we wouldn’t ask for anything more Getting sparring partners (for multifeeding) took years and eventually never got done because there was no provision in our system for something like this” he recalls He remembers his 2002 Busan Asiad trip He didn’t have a coach or a sparring-mate He received funding for just one tournament per year “I don’t think when I played in Indonesia they even considered India a team” he laughs while today Indian academies receive requests to coach Indonesians “Courts shuttles physio food basic funding….” He would also train on old, From the moment Snowden landed in Hong Kong.

Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Published 10:36 pm Tuesday, February 26, 2019 Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson The AMA is saving lives every day but there are still too many people who die from heart disease, Phillips said. “The funds raised by the Pike County Heart Walk are used primarily for research into the treatments and cures for heart disease,” Phillips said. “The money we raise here in Pike County is sent to Nashville and only 7.7 percent goes to administrative expenses. The other percentage goes to research and other programs that help reduce the number of deaths from heart disease and stroke and to make life better for those who are living with heart conditions.”Phillips said those who are living with heart disease and stroke are benefitting from the research that has been done.“But we have to do our part,” Phillips said. “In 2008, I had a problem with my heart. My left ventricle was packed like cement and there was nothing that could be done. The feeder veins would have to take care of that problem. Then in 2010, I had two strokes and probably a third. Email the author I had to take better care of myself.”Phillips said the key to taking better care of himself goes back to the fork and knife.“A lot is determined by what you put on your plate, and exercise,” he said. “We have to do our part to be heart healthy.”And, those who attend the 2019 Pike County Heart Walk from 5 until 7 p.m. Thursday at the Troy Sportsplex will have opportunities to learn more about ways to prevent heart attacks and strokes, have blood pressure checks and visit with physicians who will answer questions about physical problems and concerns related to heart disease and stroke. Participants will also have the opportunity to make donations to the American Heart Association.The Pike County community can do something most important Thursday night by supporting the fight against heart disease and stroke, Phillips said.

first_imgJulia_Sudnitskaya/iStockBy AARON KATERSKY, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The latest COVID-19 fraud case involves two purported personal protection equipment (PPE) dealers who are under arrest in California on charges they tried to scam an investor out of millions of dollars.Donald Allen and Manuel Revolorio cast themselves as sellers of scarce protective equipment and tried to entice the investor with photographs of boxes of masks, according to federal prosecutors in Brooklyn, New York who brought the case. Allen and Revolorio created a website for their company, International Commerce and Investment Group, and claimed to have contracts and agreements to sell millions of masks that they didn’t actually own, according to the FBI.“The alleged behavior here is nothing short of a betrayal of fellow citizens — both those serving on the front lines, and the communities who need those essential workers able to safely serve,” said FBI Assistant Director Bill Sweeney.The investor, who was asked to wire $4 million, became suspicious and went to the authorities, according to the complaint. He then agreed to follow the instructions of the FBI when he went to inspect the merchandise, the complaint went on to say.“As alleged in the complaint, the defendants sought to take advantage of the urgent national need for life-saving personal protective equipment through a fraudulent scheme designed to line their own pockets,” said Richard Donoghue, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York.Allen, 62, of Riverside, California, and Revolorio, 37, of Rancho Cucamonga, face wire fraud charges.“The defendants in this case allegedly created an elaborate scam to defraud their victim, going as far as to wrap and label empty boxes and try to pass them off as containing actual personal protective equipment,” said COVID-19 Hoarding and Price Gouging Task Force head Craig Carpenito.
