On Saturday during the #KipKeinoClassic at Kasarani, Omanyala, the owner of the Kenyan record of 9.86sec set last month in Europe, faced the fastest man this year, Trayvon Bromell of the USA, who was keen to sign off the season in style after a disappointing #Olympics Games.
In that start list also was, easily the most accomplished runner in the field, Justin Gatlin, a multiple World Champion and Olympics gold medallist over the distance, and the fastest man ever to compete on Kenyan soil with a stupendous 9.74sec to his name.
No sooner had the announcement been made that the men’s 100m was about to start than the entire sports desk at @NationAfrica Centre got to their feet and moved closer to the giant TV screen in our corner of the newsroom. - Charles Nyende

🏅#Olympics and #Paralympics' athletes were not the only ones pushing boundaries this summer: when it comes to curbing toxic emissions, governments have engaged in a race to the bottom
👎Here's our ranking of the worst performances at the dirtiest of games…
🇪🇺 standards set emission ranges for the most toxic pollutants, but too often governments allow coal giants to:

👟jump over pollution limits
👟abuse of exceptions
👟avoid abatement to save money - while people and nature foot the bill

Coal plants are a massive source of toxic mercury, but too many countries allow operators to jump mercury limits hurdles set by the 🇪🇺

Of the 10 worst European plants in terms of mercury emissions:

#IND Rising Again In Olympics - #Thread

This is going to be a bit long but really interesting as how from one #Bronze at Sydney 2000 we have come to 7 #Medals after 20 years; a journey guided by @geetssethi and @padukoneprakash
Yes, the two maestros and grand champs of their era. So, the story begins at the end of #Sydney2000, where India was sitting in the medal tally with only one #Bronze, a wholehearted thanks to @kmmalleswari to get us in the medal tally.
After the olympics, Geet Siriram Sethi ws invited to a dinner hosted for the Indian Contingent. While talking to them he had observed the primary cause behind the dejection in our athletes; Money. For past all those years our athletes were not been given any cash incentives. 3/11

Why state of #sports in India needs a push now?
A Thread
@IndiaSports @YASMinistry @Media_SAI
The #school curriculums still have tiny space for sports. Indian mentality goes on with the saying, “Kheloge kundoge toh banoge kharab, padhoge likhoge toh banoge nawab.”
This means that those who focus on sports are not valued, but those who are only focused on studies excel. With such a mentality, how can India expect to compete with nations like #China, the #USA, the #UK etc in the #Olympics?

Relationship between defence and games is not recent

The relation is as old as human civilization

What we call 'sports' today began with the idea of self-defence

I am proud that Subedar @Neeraj_chopra1 has added his name to list of great sportspersons like Major Dhyan Chand, Capt. Milkha Singh, Col Rajyavardhan SRathore and Captain Vijay Kumar

India's journey with the #Olympics started at a sports meet of the #DeccanGymkhana Club in #Pune in 1919.

Sir Dorabji Tata was so impressed with the performance of the athletes that he decided to personally finance a team for the Antwerp games (1920).…
The Deccan Gymkhana Sports Club, #Pune was set up as far back as 1906, with a vision to provide good sports facilities to the local population (clubs back then were exclusively for the British). One of the key persons involved in this was Lokmanya Tilak.

39 گولڈ میڈلز میں سے 23 گولڈ میڈل خواتین نے جیتے جبکہ مرد صرف 16 گولڈ میڈل حاصل کر سکے۔ Image
چائنہ نے 88 میڈلز جیتے جس میں سے 47 خواتین نے جیت کر دئیے۔

جب آپ اپنے ملک کی خواتین کو برابری کا انسان سمجھیں اور برابری کے مواقع دیں تو وہ آپ کے ملک کیلئے ایسے کرشمے سرانجام دے سکتی ہیں۔۔
بلاشبہ ٹوکیو اولمپکس میں خواتین کی کارکردگی بے مثال رہی۔۔ اور ہم ابھی تک یہ فیصلہ ہی نہیں کر پائے کہ خواتین کو برقعے سے باہر آنا چاہئے یا نہیں۔۔ افسوس

India Send Record 120 contingent While it was 117 in Rio 2016 most of them gone unnoticed because we just got two medals with very few Hopes.
In Tokyo Almost each and every athlete has brought Excitement & put level up performance
Let's Start With Shooting Young guns raised hopes and gave their best
Each one was Almost there till the last shot just couldn't finished the podium

In Archery All of them created history beating the top Archer and finishing in top 8
Beating the Koreans was Huge effort.
Table Tennis has seen the best till date for india manika & Kamal reached in top 16 and individually in round 3 created history for india

In Boxing Lovlina has super run
Pooja rani also impressed
The legend MC Mary Kom missed due to judgemental error but she gave it all 🙏

Performance of #Bharat in #Tokyo2020 has given confidence n hope to billions that we can do much better here onwards. This is the right time to channelize this zeal, self confidence and aspirations and convert to better medal tally in next Olympics. Here are my take /1
As much I personally detest calling World Games as Olympics (imposed on us by west eu), can't be helped much. So we need to start preparing whatever it is called.
There are categories of games where we are pretty good already like Shooting, boxing, wrestling, weightlifting /2
Archery, badminton - all these games we have good players as well good supply of future players. These games do have good number of gold medals available too. Good infra is in place too. Find out what is causing not translating into medals and fix it. /3

...shall we?

A fantastic start to the Games, thanks to @mirabai_chanu. A silver 🥈 that was a result of a single-minded journey from Rio to Tokyo.

In #Badminton...

Imagine being Satwik & Chirag. They won 2 out of 3 matches, losing only against the world's best. They defeated the pair that would go on to win 🥇 & incredibly, their campaign was over in group stage.

Record-breaker Adam Peaty is home from #Tokyo2020 and ready for a rest – after he’s jet-washed the garden fence. @rosiekinchen meets the king of the swimmers.…
Two weeks ago, Peaty’s torpedo-like form slid through the water to win the 100m breaststroke, winning the first gold medal of the #Olympics for Britain.

He went on to win another gold in the mixed 4x100m relay, in a world record time.
You would expect Peaty, 26, to be walking on air — yet days afterwards he announced that he was going to take a month off to prioritise his mental health.
