She did not have gloves and shoes to wear. She practiced bare-footed and borrowed gloves from others. She was not allowed entry into many coaching centers and district and state tournaments. She became a victim of dirty politics. We had to shift places. We moved to Punjab from Haryana and she had to struggle a lot.” Session ID: 2020-09-09:6dbbf61cea8eeb8c378caef Player Element ID: video_player_5f58480994931 OK Close Modal DialogBeginning of dialog window.

Everyone here are so happy and excited.”Manju’s coach Sube Singh Beniwal told Republic TV: ‘Its an unbelievable story of struggle, strength commitment, and talent. I spotted her at the age of 12 when she used to box for fun. I knew that I was seeing something special.and this child was destined for glory. I trained her and then Politics in sports was trying to sabotage everything.

Glasgow 2014: Commonwealths hailed best in 84-year history

first_imgGlasgow 2014 has been hailed as “the standout Games in the history of the movement” by Commonwealth Games Federation chief executive Mike Hooper.After 11 days of action across 17 sports, the event came to a close at Hampden Park on Sunday evening, with hosts Scotland finishing fourth overall with a record haul of 19 golds and a best-ever tally of 53 medals.England topped the medal table for the first time in 28 years, Wales surpassed their target of 27 and Northern Ireland reaped their largest tally since the Games was last in Scotland in 1986.The Isle of Man had a silver to celebrate thanks to cyclist Peter Kennaugh’s efforts in the points race, but Jersey and Guernsey failed to register.Final medals table CountryGoldSilverBronzeTotal1.England 5859571742.

That means 13 medallists from both England and Scotland, two from Wales and one from Northern Ireland will not get the chance to emulate their successes.Play medialast_img read more
