world champion’s career and character to ‘keep fighting’ in the face of adversity "We would like to encourage others to never give up" the stricken German racer’s wife Corinna said in a statement presenting the not-for-profit movement on Saturday File photo of Michael Schumacher Getty Images 29 December will be the anniversary of a 2013 skiing accident in which the former Ferrari driver suffered severe head injuries when he fell and hit his head on a rock in the French Alps Schumacher the most successful F1 driver of all time with 91 wins turns 48 in January He has been treated at home in Switzerland since he was released from hospital in September 2014 His son Mick who was with him at the time of his accident is now embarking on his own career in motor racing and is working through the junior series Few details about the champion’s condition have been made public and manager Sabine Kehm said that silence would be maintained "Michael’s health is not a public issue and so we will continue to make no comment in that regard This is also because we have to protect his intimate sphere" she said in a statement "Michael has always been very protective of his privacy even during the most successful times of his career He has always made sure there is a clear and distinct line between his public persona and his private one "We are now celebrating the loyalty of the fans by a range of initiatives including exhibitions social media and now ‘Keep Fighting’ Most of the fans have expressed their appreciation and have embraced these initiatives" ‘Keep Fighting’ will be managed by Schumacher’s office on behalf of the family Kehm said it hoped to "spread the belief that giving up is not an option a message that is valid not only in motor racing In this way we hope to turn a terrible event which affects the whole Schumacher family into something positive" The student of contemporary badminton could well draw a parallel for his beloved sport from tennis where it has become difficult to nominate a Grand Slam major winner from outside the quartet of Roger Federer Rafael Nadal Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray so comprehensively have these four fine players ruled the roost in recent times When asked to predict who he thought would win the men’s singles title at the BWF World Badminton Championships 2017 India’s 15th seeded Bhamidipati Sai Praneeth unhesitatingly opted for one amongst the troika of Lin Dan Lee Chong Wei and Chen Long who have dominated international badminton for at least the past five years even as the first two have been at the summit for a full decade Well those predictions need to be re-cast in view of the sensational opening-round 21-19 22-24 21-17 defeat of Malaysia’s three-time Olympic silver medallist and four-time All England champion Lee Chong Wei at the hands of the relatively unheralded Brice Leverdez of France after 75 minutes of intense edge-of-the-seat action at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow Lee Chong Wei’s exit opens up door for competitors to go for the title AFP Leverdez who trailed the Malaysian ace 1-7 in head-to-head career meetings and had lost their most recent clash at the 2017 All England Super Series Premier in straight games was full value for his success The Frenchman would not have been flattered if he had won the match in straight games for he held two match-points in the second game at 21-20 and 22-21 but failed to convert them the second one on a heart-stoppingly close unsuccessful line challenge It must be said though that Datuk Lee (a prestigious title conferred on him by the Malaysian government and equivalent to the British ‘Lord’ seeking his first world championship crown was at nowhere near the top of his form on the day The man who ended second-best in the last four editions of the Worlds since 2011 was distinctly nervy in his demeanour nowhere near as swift on his feet as he normally is nor as powerful with his usually lethal smashes Lee was also bothered by the strong cross-drift in the vast arena in which five courts had been laid for the proceedings of the opening rounds of all five events He repeatedly netted his overhead drops from the back court; but yet could have won if a line call that would have given him an 18-16 lead in the decider had it not been overturned by Hawk-eye From 17-all Leverdez did not lose another point as he played like a man possessed to claim a five-point reel and show Lee the door The exit of the Malaysian who turns 35 in October meant that the chances of his winning a World Championship gold medal are receding nearly as fast as his hopes of netting an Olympic gold at Tokyo in 2020 at the age of nearly 38 It also meant that two-time reigning world champion Chen Long of China has one less prime contender to take care of in his attempt to record a hat-trick of world titles The fifth-seeded Chen who did not break sweat while literally strolling through his lung-opener against Georges Julian Paul of Mauritius will probably have to deal with veteran Sony Dwi Kuncoro in his next outing The 33-year-old Indonesian who has won silver (2007) and bronze (2009) at earlier Worlds as also an Olympic bronze (2004) has sunk to No 61 in the Badminton World Federation (BWF) rankings but actually leads Chen 2-1 in career meetings Should Chen restore parity in their head-to-heads as he certainly should he will have India’s Ajay Jayaram seeded 13th at Glasgow barring his path to the quarter-finals Jayaram who clashes with Dutchman Mark Caljouw in the second round is not likely to worry the tall 28-year-old Chinese star for he has an imposing 5-0 career head-to-head tally against the Indian and has yet to even lose a single game to Jayaram who turns 30 in September The other main title contender five-time world champion Lin Dan seeded seventh played well within himself while knocking out local boy and Scottish No 1 Kieran Merrilees and has earned a second-round meeting with Denmark’s Emil Holst whom he sensationally trails 0-1 in career meetings The Chinese left-hander unaccountably surrendered tamely to Holst in March this year on the eve of the All England where he lost in the semi-finals to compatriot Shi Yuqi Few will bet on Holst repeating that German Open victory over Super Dan who appears to have prepared well for this event after winning the Malaysian Open Super Series Premier at the expense of arch-rival Lee Chong Wei and being runner-up in three games to Chen Long at the Badminton Asia Championships Earlier in the Swiss Open he had comprehensively thrashed Shi Yuqi gaining sweet revenge for his reverse in the penultimate round of the All England The top seed in the event South Korea’s Son Wan Ho was hardly impressive while settling the pretensions of unheralded Finn Kalle Koljonen; and further buttressed the feeling that he had gained the top ranking not by a string of outstanding performances but by virtue of having reached the closing stages of almost all the tournaments in which he has participated this season Son takes on Hungarian Gergely Krausz in his second round and appears headed for a pre-quarter-final clash with Thailand’s Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk The Thai southpaw seeded No 11 blew hot and cold while eliminating Nick Fransman of the Netherlands in three games losing his concentration when sitting on a hefty lead in the first game and being forced into going the full distance The Korean world No 1 essentially a steady defensive player should have little difficulty in making the quarter-final where he is slated to bump into India’s eighth seeded Kidambi Srikanth – provided Srikanth works his way through a minefield section of the draw that includes the exciting young No 14 seed Anders Antonsen of Denmark and Indonesia’s former World Championship bronze medalist Tommy Sugiarto The Indian’s second-round outing is against Frenchman Lucas Corvee As for the other two Indians in the men’s singles draw Sameer Verma had a comfortable opening outing against Spaniard Pablo Abian who retired when the Indian had the finishing line well in sight Verma will however have his hands full on Wednesday when he takes on English No 1 and current European champion Rajiv Ouseph seeded No 16 The two will be crossing swords for the first time and the Indian will have to deal with the metronomic accuracy steadiness and excellent court coverage of the Englishman of Indian descent who has a 1-1 career record against Sameer’s elder brother Sourabh who did not qualify for the Worlds Sai Praneeth seeded No 15 and sitting in the top segment of the bottom half of the draw was an impressive 21-18 21-17 winner against the dangerous Hong Kong player Wei Nan and will next run into Indonesia’s Anthony Sinisuka Ginting The diminutive Indonesian who occupies the 26th rung of the BWF ladder has a 1-0 advantage over the Indian in career meetings having beaten Praneeth in three games in the 2016 Thomas Cup finals However Praneeth who won back-to-back international titles (Singapore Open and Thailand Open) earlier in the year is a much improved player after changing his training routine under the watchful eyes of Indonesian coach Mulyo Handoyo coach of former world champion Taufiq Hidayat The 25-year-old Indian is strongly favoured to sideline Ginting and move to a third-round meeting with either sixth-seeded Chou Tien Chen of Chinese Taipei or Germany’s Marc Zwiebler New Delhi: In a first for shooting India’s Angad Veer Singh Bajwa teamed up with Haley Dunn of the USA to claim the Grand Prix bronze medal in mixed team skeet event of the ISSF World Cup on Friday With the International Olympic Committee (IOC) firm on its stand to achieve gender equality in its 2020 Tokyo Olympics program the unique concept of mixed event was tried out for the first time on a global stage Friday’s event was the most unique in the sense that a shooter from a country paired up with an athlete from another for the first time in the sport’s history at world level However since it was a test event only it will not be counted as official World Cup medals Representative image Reuters The duo of Hayden Stewart and triple Olympic champion and skeet legend Kimberly Rhode of the USA won the top prize in the event defeating Argentine siblings Federico and Melisa Gill 29-26 in the gold-medal match Angad and Haley got the better Robert Johnson and Caitlin Connor 28-26 in the bronze medal match at the Dr Karni Singh Shooting Range on the concluding day of the tournament Earlier among the 22 pairings who entered the mixed team skeet event six qualified for the semi-final round They were clubbed into two groups of three pairs each One pair was then eliminated on the basis of having the lowest score after 30 targets The winner went through to the gold medal match while the second placed team made it to the bronze medal round Angad and Haley finished second in their group shocking Italy’s reigning Olympic champion pairing of Gabrielle Rossetti and Diana Bacosi In the bronze medal match Angad was in sublime form missing just one target out of his allotted 15 to easily beat the all-American pair of Johnson-Connor in partnership with Haley India thus ended its campaign with five medals —one gold two silver and two bronze — holding on their own in a tournament that was graced by some of the world’s top shooters Additionally the host nation also won Grand Prix gold in the mixed team 10m air pistol besides Angad’s bronze in the mixed team skeet "It was amazing I enjoyed the experience" Angad who took up the event only four years ago said Asked if he was under pressure Angad said "What happens is if I start taking pressure in situations like that it does not help So I try to take this as a video game and enjoy" About his plans ahead he said "We are going to Acupulco (for the next Shotgun World Cup) end of this month got a camp coming up in another week or so Good two to three days break now and then back to the grind" Angad thanked Olympic Gold Quest for supporting him "OGQ has been a huge support last three years They have been there for everything — physios financial part of it the ammunition it wouldn’t have been possible without them" Summing up the outing in the season’s first World Cup he said "I had a rough second day I could have made it but I didn’t have presence of mind that day I corrected that today I have got a personal range set up in Chandigarh the president has been very kind with this sport" Asked about the growth of skeet shooting in India in the recent years the young shooter added "The belief part has really gone up now which was not there earlier When you are shooting with Kimberly you have to believe that you are better than her if you don’t believe you are better than her how can you beat her Technically (skeet coach) Ennio Falco really helped the team I also looked after my fitness my diet mental side of the game focused a lot on that" said Angad who started out as a trap shooter before making the switch to skeet I found trap boring and skeet more challenging" he said Written by Press Trust Of India | Lucknow | Published:
