PV Sindhu PV Sindhu surpassed Thailand’s Nitchaon Jindapol 21-15 13-21 21-17.

Olympic silver medallist P V Sindhu and Sameer Verma notched up contrasting wins on Wednesday to progress to the second round of the Hong Kong Open World Tour Super 500 tournament Sindhu, seeded third, continued her consistent run as she recovered from a mid-game slump to surpass Thailand’s Nitchaon Jindapol 21-15 13-21 21-17 in the opening round which lasted a little over an hour.

It was Sindhu’s fourth win over the Thai player. Sindhu, who won three major silver medals this season — Commonwealth Games, World Championship and Asian Games — will take on Korea’s Sung Ji Hyun next. The 23-year-old from Hyderabad has a superior 8-5 head-to-head record against the Korean.

In the men’s singles, Sameer, who clinched the Swiss Open and Hyderabad Open this year, saw off another Thai Suppanyu Avihingsanon 21-17 21-14 to set up a clash with China’s Olympic champion Chen Long. However, former Singapore Open champion B Sai Praneeth was stunned by Khosit Phetpradab of Thailand in a 62-minute opener.

Love not only makes you happy but, apparently, it also makes you healthy! In case you are wondering that we are making blind claims, we have the findings of a study as proof. According to the researchers at the University of Western Virginia, California, activity in 12 areas of the brain working together results in an individual to become smitten.

Dopamine levels in your brain elevate as love ruptures. It is followed by the release of ‘cuddle hormone’ – oxytocin. Apart from giving warm and fuzzy feelings for your partner, these brain chemicals also help in cutting off the stress and anxiety levels, thereby making you mentally fitter.

According to a study published in the journal Comprehensive Psychology, hugging your loved one can also result in lower blood pressure as well as reduce the heart rate due to increased levels of oxytocin in the body.

Another study by Annals of Behavioral Medicine, reaffirming this, deduced that certain hormones are released by touch which help in lowering the blood pressure. Professor Sir Cary Cooper, a psychologist at the University of Manchester says, “Important life events, such as falling in love, have profound physiological effects as well as emotional ones. The immune system, hormones and many other factors are likely to be involved.”

A research published in the journal Psychoneuroendocrinology also suggest that love can help one fight infections and allergies. The research which studied 50 women, over a period of two years, concluded that those in love showed genetic changes related to higher concentrations of chemicals in the body that help in attacking and fighting viruses and harmful foreign material.

Hence, love does not only makes life more beautiful but also provides a healthy stress-free life.

It’s long journey ahead for young Nihal Sarin, says Viswanathan Anand

Indian chess great Viswanathan Anand sees signs of greatness in Nihal Sarin but says it’s a long journey ahead for the impressive 14-year-old since there has been a trend of players struggling to replicate success as they age. Sarin did exceedingly well by forcing a draw with five-time World Champion Anand in the eighth round of the Tata Steel Chess Rapid tournament.

Currently ranked world number one in the U14 category, Sarin finished the rapid section of the tournament with just three points with six draws and three defeats but impressed with the calm manner in which he tackled the pressure of playing some of the biggest stars of the game.

“Going by the evidence so far, I would not rule it out (Nihal becoming a world champion in future). It’s a long journey forward,” Anand told PTI in an interview. “At the end, he is just 14. I felt that he would really struggle in this tournament and he would be a bit out of place. It seemed the opposite. He seemed quite comfortable here. Not fully there, but he’s a huge talent what I’ve seen of him.”

Sarin, who became the 12th-youngest GM in chess a few months back, has a rating of 2576 in classical chess. Impressed with India consistently churning out talented chess players, Anand said it seems there is a “movement” but was baffled what happens to them when they start maturing.

“The problem with young talents is that you have an impression but they outgrow it very fast. I have no idea about what happens 10 years down the line. Not everybody’s growth is going to be linear but we have got enormous depth of talents. Some of them will break through,” Anand said.

Apart from the Thrissur boy Sarin, India also have seen the rapid rise of Chennai’s 13-year-old R Praggnanandhaa who hit the headlines by becoming the second youngest Grandmaster in chess history this year. “I think what we have already is a movement. It’s steadily producing lots and lots of players, and slowly the movement is taking the game of chess forward in India. I’m very happy with the steady growth that we have had.”

Asked if a parallel can be drawn between Sarin and the reigning world champion Magnus Carlsen, Anand said, “Some results are comparable but Magnus was ahead at this stage. But his (Nihal’s) understand in everything seemed to very high at the moment. But it’s a long journey.” “Magnus was playing amazing things when he was 14. He won the C group when he was 13 and then progressed into the B group and so on.”

Playing white, Sarin opted to play safe and went for Catalan opening against Anand. After a series of exchanges, Sarin had a rook and bishop against Anand’s rook and knight. Anand used his vast experience and defensive skill to salvage a draw with great effort by sacrificing his knight.

“It should be noted that he did not lose a single game with the white pieces. In fact, I don’t even think anyone came close to beating him when he played with white. He impressed me a great deal here,” Anand, playing in India for the first time since losing to Magnus Carlsen in the world championship battle of 2013, said.

“Against me he played a line, which is as solid as it gets. There was not much space for me to try anything. It seemed to me he was dangerous enough and I could not gauge that and it did not work out well,” he recalled about their eighth round exchange on Sunday. “I should have played something else with black but the problem I was not feeling very comfortable. I didn’t know what to aim for.”

Anand, who won his second World Rapid Chess Championship last year, has been struggling for form in speed chess. he endured last-place finishes at St Louis Rapid and blitz meet. “My results have fluctuated much more than I would have liked. Over long stretches, it’s basically I like playing chess. I like studying chess. You just realise that a result here or there does not matter. You keep doing what you have always done — to keep working and to keep learning new things.”

“I’m disappointed but there there comes a time when you have to stop explaining and simply focus on playing chess. One loss you can try to explain it, but if it becomes a pattern, just keep playing hoping that you will comeback.”

Anand however is not giving up and said he still has hopes to fight for sixth world championship title by finishing in the top two of the World Cup in Khanty-Mansiysk, Russia from November 4-30, 2019. The top two finishers of the World Cup qualify for the Candidates Tournament for the World Chess Championship 2020.

“My focus will again shift to the World Cup. Because that would be the next big event to try to qualify for the Candidates (tournament),” he said.

Olympic champion Edwin Moses asks for thorough review of WADA culture

Olympic champion Edwin Moses sent a tersely worded letter to leaders of the World Anti-Doping Agency, asking for an investigation into the culture at WADA that would expand beyond athletes’ representative Beckie Scott’s claim that she was bullied at a recent meeting. The Associated Press obtained the letter that Moses, who serves as chair of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, emailed to WADA president Craig Reedie and director general Olivier Niggli as they prepared for their executive meetings Wednesday in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Moses is asking for an independent investigation into whether “WADA management has fostered and facilitated an open environment where the best interests of clean sport and the wellbeing of athletes may be freely discussed.”

Scott described being bullied at a WADA meeting in September at which executives reinstated the suspended Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA). Scott had resigned from the committee that initially approved the recommendation against her wishes.

WADA officials did not immediately respond to emailed requests for comment from AP.

They are reviewing what happened at the September meeting, but Moses said such a narrow review will not get to the heart of what he describes as culture problems inside WADA “that have not been limited to the singular event of September 20, 2018.”

In another letter sent to Reedie, this one by American runner Emma Coburn and Swedish biathlete Sebastian Samuelsson, the athletes challenge WADA to back its claim that RUSADA’s reinstatement will lead to more Russian doping sanctions. WADA’s key argument for reinstating the agency is that it will give officials access to testing data that can be used to corroborate suspected violations.

WADA has set a deadline of Dec. 31 for Russian authorities to turn over the data.

“We know that many cheating athletes are, and have been, competing on the world stage even (though) they were part of the Russian doping program, and that WADA is doing little to remedy that,” the athletes write. “Can you tell us, the global athlete community, that the decision to render Russia compliant will lead to these people being dealt with appropriately, and if not, why not?”

Despite resigning from the compliance review panel after RUSADA’s reinstatement, Scott remains chair of WADA’s athletes’ committee. Hers has stood out as one of the most forceful voices in favor of WADA taking a harder line against Russia since revelations of the doping scandal inside the country that tainted the Sochi Olympics.

“In short, the world realized that if a person of this unchallengeable integrity and character could feel bullied, belittled, disrespected and marginalized,” Moses wrote of Scott, “that something is potentially seriously amiss with the way business at WADA is being conducted.”

Australia fast bowler Mitchell Starc on Wednesday revealed that he has been released by Indian Premier League franchise Kolkata Knight Riders. The left-arm seamer, who was out for the entire 2018 season due to a leg injury he sustained during the South Africa Test tour, told reporters in Sydney that he was informed by the club about his release via a text message.”I got a text message two days ago from the owners of Kolkata saying I’ve been released from my contract,” the 28-year-old was quoted as saying by Cricket Australia official website.

The bowler added that he will most likely be at home during the 2019 IPL season. “At the moment I’ll be home in April. I obviously didn’t go last year with my tibia injury and it was a great opportunity to freshen the body up, let everything heal by itself. I guess barring a little niggle in my hammy I’ve felt pretty good with my body and my strength and the rest of it,” he said.

Starc added that if he rests during the next IPL season, he will get time to freshen up his body before the World Cup in England. “That little period of time has really paid off for the body. If I don’t play the IPL next year it’s a good opportunity to freshen up for a massive six months of cricket in the UK,” he said.
