Brand tie ups for Atheltes
Clifford Miranda is the first Indian coach to win the Super Cup and the first to win a trophy for Indian Super League (ISL) club. Not many gave Odisha FC any chance when they sacked Josep Gombau and handed charge to the former India midfielder. In this freewheeling interview with TOI, the 40-year-old Goan coach explains how he turned it around and what Indian coaches need to do to win owners’ confidence
Having found a place in the India U-19 World Cup squad, Soumya Tiwari is confident of playing her role to perfection whenever an opportunity comes. She admires the erstwhile India captain so much that her team-mates often call her ‘ apni Virat’.
Jaipur Pink Panthers beat Puneri Paltan 33-29 in a tense final to seal their second Pro Kabaddi title in Mumbai on Saturday. “Today before the final, I told Rahul that this will be a game for you. From season 1, he has been putting in the effort to make a name for himself so this title is for him. Rahul is the senior-most player in the team but Sunil is captain. However, the way he listened to everyone and gelled with the boys and contributed towards this team is incredible,” he said after the final.
The India paddler, who has now shifted base to Sonepat, hopes to make rapid strides in the senior category after a mixed 2021.
Although a top competitor, Manav Thakkar wasn’t being able to win the National Ranking Table Tennis Championships in 2021. Just last month, after losing a final to unseeded Sanil Shetty in Dehradun, the India No. 5 lost to Arjun Ghosh in the last 16 in Puducherry.
The nation cheered as Ravi Kumar Dahiya stood on the podium to accept the silver medal in the men’s freestyle 57kg clash at the Tokyo Games, but the smile was missing from the grappler’s face. Dahiya was very disappointed by his close loss in the finals to Russia’s Zaur Ugeyev and later apologised to his fans.
Kerala Blasters FC is happy to announce the signing of the young defender, Hormipam Ruivah on a 3-year deal that will keep him at the club till 2024. The 20-year-old hails from Somdal, Manipur, and has been playing football since his early childhood. He was an integral part of the Indian Arrows in the 2019-2020 season.
NorthEast United exceeded expectations under Khalid Jamil and made it to the Indian Super League (ISL) playoffs last season. But, the journey was very tough and it tested everyone’s character and patience in the Highlanders’ squad. One such player who worked his socks off every time Jamil counted on him is Imran Khan.
The attacker scored 12 goals for TRAU FC in the I-League campaign and is the first Indian to win he prize outright.
Life always gives you a second chance, a shot at redemption no matter what. That has been the case for young Bidyashagar Singh, the Manipuri forward who was associated with many firsts in this season’s I-League.
Khalid Jamil seems to be the a man with a Midas touch. In the 2017 I-league season, Jamil took over the reins of Aizawl FC, a team that was supposed to be relegated the previous season but due to the withdrawal of Goan teams, it got reinstated.
