matter and the government

  • 24 May
    The Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) has handed Narsingh Yadav a four-year suspension from wrestling, starting today, after it overturned the National Anti-Doping Agencys (NADA) decision to clear the wrestler of doping charges. It instead upheld the World Anti-Doping Agencys (WADA) appeal against NADAs decision.?The CAS further ruled that all competitive results obtained by Narsingh from and including 25 June 2016 shall be disqualified, with all resulting consequences (including forfeiture of medals, points and prizes).Narsingh was due to fight his first bout on Friday morning Rio time but now has to leave the Games Village with immediate effect.Narsingh has to vacate the Athletes village by tomorrow. He is shattered. We demand a CBI enquiry. said WFI President Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh. We will raise the matter and find out the people involved in this sabotage.NADA, UWW (United World Wrestling) had cleared him, along with the IOC (International Olympic Committee) and the Olympic organising committee. WADA should have appealed this earlier, Singh added.Reacting to the development, IOA (Indian Olympic Association) secretary general Rajeev Mehta further told PTI, Its not a just loss for Narsingh at the Court of Arbitration for Sports but he was beaten by his compatriots who did not want to let him compete at the Olympics and not by his opponents.The picture is clear and neither I nor anyone has to say whos done the foul play. If you go back, you can easily connect the dots and would clearly know who could be the suspect.As of now, the culprits have been successful in stopping him from the Olympics, though we may challenge the order and minimise the ban. Its a loss for the country, he said.Further hinting at a conspiracy theory, Mehta said, We must go deep into the matter and the government should initiate a CBI inquiry into the matter. Its not a small thing, its plaguing our countrys sport and we must nip this in the bud.Days after he won the battle at the Delhi High Court (against Sushil Kumar to participate at the Olympics), a phone call came from his SAI centre in Sonipat about some doping activities, the raid happened and his sample was found positive. It cannot be sheer coincidence.Narsingh had tested positive for methandionene, a banned substance, on July 23, and was provisionally suspended. However, he was cleared by a NADA disciplinary panel on August 2, after they accepted Narsinghs sabotage theory - where he claimed his food had been spiked with illegal substances - and exonerated him from all charges.The CAS panel, though, noted that there was no evidence that he bore no fault, nor that the anti-doping rule violation was not intentional, thereby imposing the standard four-year period of ineligibility.?On Wednesday, soon after WADA lodged their appeal against Narsinghs clean chit, the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) had said that?the timing of the appeal was unusual since they had forwarded the NADA decision well in advance, and had even received clearance from them.?Narsingh is one of our best medal contenders. To put him through this mental agony just ahead of his bout is really unfortunate, the WFI had then said.Narsingh was due to begin his 74kg campaign in the round of 32 against Frances?Zelimkhan Khadjiev at 6:38 PM IST on Friday, but following the CAS decision, Khadjiev will now be given a walkover.?The latest decision comes as a huge blow to Narsingh, at the end of what has been a controversial and turbulent Olympic journey for the wrestler, which also included?a public and bitter spat with double Olympic medallist Sushil Kumar, who was the other contender for the sole spot in the 74kg freestyle category. Narsingh was favoured as he had earned the Olympic quota in the World Championships last year.?

Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night. TAMPA, Fla. -- The new-look Baltimore Ravens were tough, physical and opportunistic, all good signs for a team seeking another run to the Super Bowl. "Were a very different team than we were, so we were really anxious to get on the field and just see who we are, because we really dont know in a lot of ways," coach John Harbaugh said after Thursday nights 44-16 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "We suspect we have a chance to be a good team, but weve got a long way to go as far as being on the same page in a lot of ways, so its a good thing weve got preseason, obviously." Joe Flacco was sharp in his preseason debut, second-year pro Bernard Pierce scored on a 20-yard run, and a revamped defence forced four turnovers before an announced crowd of 47,599 at Raymond James Stadium. Backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor threw a pair of TD passes, including a 21-yarder to third-stringer LaQuan Williams, who also recovered a blocked punt in the end zone. "Its good to see him step up and make plays," Harbaugh said of Williams. "Heres a guy that just brings his lunch pail every single week, puts on his blue collar work shirt and goes to work. To see him make those plays, hes got tremendous talent." Josh Freeman and the rest of Tampa Bays starters played sparingly, so most of Baltimores scoring came against backups and newcomers to a defence that ranked last in the NFL against the pass last season. Flacco signed a $120.1 million contract after leading the Ravens to their second Super Bowl title. He worked two series, completing seven of nine passes for 57 yards and one interception. Second-year Bucs coach Greg Schiano liked what he saw from his overhauled secondary early in the game. "I thought we played competitively on defence ... ones against ones," Schiano said. Lavonte David sacked Flacco for a 10-yard loss and Danny Gorrer picked off a sideline throw intended for Jacoby Jones two plays later to stop Baltimores first possession. "It felt pretty good, and not just in terms of finally being back out here," Flacco said. "I felt like we operated OK for being this early and that the offensive line played pretty well. There are a couple of things we need to clean up -- like on the interception -- because those are little things that we need to ... get better at, so we can stay on the field and score points." Freemans first seriees ended with the fifth-year pro, whos entering the final year of his contract as the third quarterback drafted in 2009, being sacked by Chris Canty.dddddddddddd. He left the game on a better note, directing an 11-play, 56-yard drive that produced Derek Dimkes 29-yard field goal. "It felt good to get back out there. Playing a team like the Ravens, theyre going to blitz, theyre going to play man, theyre going to mix it up," Freeman said. "We saw quite a bit during the short time (Baltimores starters) were in." Freeman completed four of seven passes for 34 yards in just under a quarter. Rookie Mike Glennon took over on Tampa Bays third possession, teamed with tight end Tom Crabtree on a 61-yard catch-and-run on his first play, and led two first-half scoring drives. The third-round draft pick threw a third-quarter interception, but his mistake was hardly the only costly blunder for the Bucs. Chris Oswusu muffed a punt return to set up Pierces touchdown, and Baltimore added a TD just before the half when Brynden Trawick blocked Chas Henrys punt in the end zone and Williams recovered. Despite only playing 13 snaps, Freeman felt he accomplished what he set out to in a preseason opener -- mainly working off the rust of a long off-season. "The reason for the preseason is tuning up," the Tampa Bay quarterback said. "We talked about coming out and playing physical and not turning the ball over as an offence. ... I thought it was an effective day to get out and play against somebody, since the last 2 1-2 weeks weve been playing against each other." The Bucs played without cornerback Darrelle Revis, the biggest of several key off-season acquisitions since going 7-9 and missing the playoffs for the fifth straight season. The three-time All-Pro is recovering from a knee injury that sidelined him most of last season with the New York Jets; theres a chance he may not play in the preseason. NOTES: Six other projected starters also did not play for Tampa Bay: guards Carl Nicks and Davin Joseph; defensive end Adrian Clayborn; fullback Erik Lorig; tight end Luke Stocker; and kicker Lawrence Tynes, whos been slowed in camp by a toe injury. ... The Ravens played without linebacker Jameel McClain, one of several possibilities to replace Ray Lewis in the middle of a defence that lost Ed Reed, Paul Kruger, Cary Williams and Bernard Pollard to free agency.
