The FIR in the rape case was lodged at Keshav Puram police station on October 9 last year,” Ibrahimovic reaps the rewards. 2017 2:08 pm Zlatan Ibrahimovic is feeding off his goals rather than his reputation. and it showed.With challengers all around he simply wouldn’t be denied After touching the wall first — barely — he held up one finger Then he sat on a lane rope egging on the roaring crowd at the Olympic Aquatics Center with both hands before emphatically pumping his fist in the direction of his fiancee and their infant son Once again the gold medal in the 200-meter butterfly belongs to Phelps Michael Phelps of the United States celebrates winning gold in the Men’s 200m Butterfly Final Getty Being the 20th gold of his career only added to the satisfaction Making up for one of the few losses in his staggering career Phelps held off Japan’s Masato Sakai by a mere four-hundredths of a second The winning time was 1 minute 5336 seconds but that was of little concern The only thing that mattered was getting to the wall first Four years ago Phelps mistimed his finish in the swooping stroke he does better than anyone gliding to the wall a little too long after his final stroke That allowed Chad le Clos of South Africa to stunningly win gold in an event that Phelps had dominated for the better part of a decade Phelps retired after the London Games so it looked like he wouldn’t get a chance to make up for his defeat But when he decided about a year later to start competing again the 200 fly was clearly the title he wanted more than any other Le Clos was in the final again thoroughly inspired himself by his mother and father both battling cancer and in the stands cheering him on But the South African could only manage fourth this time finishing behind bronze medalist Tamas Kenderesi of Hungary In what was shaping up to be another very good night for the Americans Katie Ledecky took the most challenging step toward a feat that’s only been done one other time Ledecky held off Sweden’s Sarah Sjostrom to win the 200 freestyle and give the American star her second gold of the Rio Games Debbie Meyer is the only female swimmer to capture the three longest freestyle events at a single Olympics winning the 200 400 and 800 at Mexico City in 1968 Ledecky looks like a lock to match Meyer having already won the 200 and 400 titles and an overwhelming favorite in the 800 where she’s the world-record holder and far faster than anyone else in the world Fifth at the first flip turn a bit faster than she usually goes out Ledecky powered to the front on the third lap and grittily shooed off a hard-charging Sjostrom coming to the wall Ledecky touched in 1:5373 The silver went to Sjostrom in 1:5408 while early leader Emma McKeon faded to the bronze in 1:5492 World-record holder Federica Pelligrini of Italy was fourth "That was a really tough race and it hurt really badly" Ledecky said "I’m pretty sure it’s the closest I’ve come to throwing up in the middle of a race I’m just so glad I got my hand on the wall first and it was all worth it" Ledecky knew this was the most vulnerable of her three individual events She crushed the world record in the 400 and everyone expects her to do the same in the 800 The 200 may be the shortest race of the bunch but it’s definitely the hardest for Ledecky requiring her to show both her speed and endurance against a far more competitive field "The 200 is a much more stressful race than the 400 and 800 and it always just feels good when it’s over" she said "I took it out pretty fast and kind of forced everybody to try to do that Once I was ahead I knew I wasn’t going to let it out of my hands I knew I wasn’t going to be able to see most of the field on the last 50 so I just had to dig deep" Phelps hustled off the deck after his victory celebration having only about an hour to get ready for his second race of the night — anchoring the US in the 4×200 freestyle relay Conor Dywer was leading off for the Americans followed by Townley Haas and 11-time Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte competing in his first event of these games Phelps was picked to finish up looking to claim gold medal No 21 Falcons TTC put in a high-flying performance in their last league tie against the DHFL Maharashra United team winning by a huge margin of 17-10 It was the second-biggest win in the Ultimate Table Tennis legaue with the Falcons also holding the record for the biggest win when they beat the Oilmax-Stag Yoddhas by 22-5 The third leg matches of the UTT are being held at the NSCI venue in Worli Mumbai and local hotshot Sanil Shetty of the Falcons put in a stupendous exhibition of power and agility as he beat World No 48 Joao Monteiro of the United’s Sanil displayed a ruthless attacking game which proved too difficult for Monteiro Sanil hit powerful forehand strokes from all parts of the table often bending his back to play a ball played on his body Sanil Shetty in action during the Ultimate Table Tennis Image courtesy: UTT 2017 Sanil’s short ball receiving was also impeccable which enabled him to initiate the attack He varied this with the occasional long push surprising Moniteiro Sanil won the match in straight games The other star performer of the day for the Falcons was Sutirtha Mukherjee Sutirtha beat the World No 37 Fu Yu by a scoreline of 2-1 Inspired by Manika Batra and Madhurika Patkar Sutirtha became the third woman to beat a foreign player at the Ultimate Table Tennis league It was a free flowing game with lot of rallies Sutirtha blocked really well and placed the ball to all parts of the table She would often start the rally from the extreme forehand of Fu Yu where she was uncomfortable She would then either play the ball to the extreme backhand or into the body of Fu Yu Her opponent also made a couple of unforced errors while trying to attack Although Sutirtha lost the first game her strategies were very strong and they paid dividend in the next two games as she won the match by 2-1 But the upset of the day belonged to Liu Jia of the Maharashtra United team She was up against Wu Yang who currently holds the honor of being the Ultimate One the player with the most points in UTT The 22nd-ranked Liu Jia overcame Wu Yang who is ranked 13th by a score of 2-1 Liu Jia played a patient game against the chopper Wu Yang She mixed the amount of spin on her top spins as Wu Yang gave away a couple of points on defence when she was not able to read the spin on her opponents strokes Liu Jia won the first game on the golden point In the second game Wu Yang started attacking a bit more so that Liu Jia had to push with perfection and attack even more This seemed to have worked as Liu Jia made errors and lost the second game In the third game Liu Jia faced problems against the forehand side spin push of Wu Yang She popped up the returns on those balls as Wu Yang was able to hit on it Wu Yang increased her attacking percentage to take a 5-3 lead At that point Liu Jia upped the tempo and on the next ball her attack was forceful and into the body of Wu Yang This was followed by a risky long serve that made it 5-5 She began reading her forehand side spin stroke and was able to keep it low Liu Jia was very brave and in the tense moments used her backhand open to win a point at 9-9 and finished the match by hitting good top spins Wu Yang came back strong in her second match of the tie as she comfortably dispatched off India’s Kritwika Sinha Roy in straight sets Even in the men’s singles India’s Harmeet Desai did not live up to the mark as he couldn’t take off a single game against England’s Liam Pitchford The only ray of hope for Maharashtra United was actually the way in which Wong Chun Ting played in the last game of his match against Liam Pitchford Wong the best player at the UTT by world rankings has failed to impress so far losing to lower-ranked players Such was his drop in form that in this tie the United team let captain Joao Monteiro play two matches more than Wong who played a single match With the score even at 1-1 and the United team already having lost the tie Wong played a fabulous third game attacking from both flanks and effectively using his backhand flicks and short pushes For the first time in the entire tournament Wonh had the aura associated with a top-class table tennis player The Falcons are way ahead of the pack in terms of points won and will surely qualify as the top team in the League Maharashtra United are in a tricky situation as they have to hope that the RP-SG Mavericks don’t put in a fabulous performance The Mavericks will need to beat the Shaze Challengers in the last league match of the UTT and that too by a big enough margin so as to climb above the United team Even if they do qualify for the semi-final playoffs Maharashtra United will need to address several issues They still seem to be indecisive about who should play the women’s singles – Pooja or Krittwika The form of Fu Yu and Harmeet Desai is also a cause for concern as both players have now lost heavily in the last two ties The four semi-finalists will be decided based on the result between the RP-SG Mavericsk and Shaze Challengers Will Virat Kohli’s team be as successful overseas as it is on home turf Critics have started asking questions: So what you won the series against Australia So what you won four of them in the season Weren’t you playing on home tracks Prove that you are as good overseas That’s where the challenge is; that’s where glory is The Indian team poses with the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after winning the Test series against Australia AP If not made with malicious intent these are valid questions What’s greatness in batting if runs are not scored in the swinging conditions in England the bouncy tracks of Australia tricky pitches of New Zealand or alien conditions in South Africa What’s great bowling if it’s not about troubling and taming batsmen in their comfort zone And what’s team success without a partisan crowd grudgingly acknowledging it with muted appreciation It’s better than any ICC ranking earned through victories at home Thus when cricketing great Sunil Gavaskar says "It is great that we do well at home it is pretty much expected But winning overseas is a completely different satisfaction It’s a great satisfaction" it strikes a chord Consistent overseas victories have been a challenge for India for long The current team won’t be unaware that they would ultimately be judged by how they perform in away contests The just-concluded series provides glimpses of why the Virat Kohli-led team would not be a disappointment A great team is never about isolated brilliance or a sum total of the talent of its individual members It is much more than that The series victory against Australia was a group effort unlike the series against England where the prolific Kohli overshadowed the team Against the Aussies Kohli failed to shine That was a good opportunity for other batsmen to rise to the occasion From KL Rahul to Ravindra Jadeja through Chateswar Pujara to Ajinkya Rahane they did it brilliantly It was not about the scores only it was more about how the grit and determination they displayed to take the battle to the opponents known for their battle-hardened quality Same goes for the bowlers Starting with the spinners given his track record Ravichandran Ashwin was expected to be outstanding But Jadeja so far little more than a support bowler came into his own to steal Ashwin’s thunder Jadeja’s 25 wickets in the series was his coming of age as a bowler Ashwin and Jadeja hunted in a pair seeking out flaws in the batsmen and wearing them down ball after ball India could have found its Anil Kumble-Harbhajan Singh combination for the Kohli age finally The emergence of Kuldeep Yadav a left-arm Chinaman bowler – a rare species in cricket – is an indicator that we could be forming a formidable spin triad a strong bet on foreign wickets Perhaps the biggest takeaway from the series is the discovery of a genuine fast bowling duo When did you last see an Indian fast bowler making batsmen hop in the crease or ducking for cover under a barrage of short well-directed deliveries Australian batsmen are used to pace and it was a revelation watching them getting uncomfortable facing Umesh Yadav Umesh surely has come miles from his erratic days His pace was never in doubt but what was missing so far was control His fiery spell in Dharamsala revealed that he had acquired both And the combination is a deadly asset on fast wickets in other countries Meanwhile Bhuvneshwar Kumar has acquired speed and has teamed it up well with swing that comes naturally to him In the Bhuvneshwar-Umesh combination India has finally found what it takes to crack the overseas code The team has balance and talent However one of the biggest factors that works for it is the confidence and ability to fight back after being in desperate situations There were many occasions like that in the series against Steve Smith and Co What we witnessed against Australia was a team at work which as mentioned earlier is more than the combination of individual talents It reflects in abstracts such as aggression and self-assuredness On overseas tours this would work in India’s favour Virat Kohli has been exceptional in India;
