Commonwealth Table Tennis Championships: India men, women’s teams win titles

first_imgIndian men defended their crown beating England while the women blanked Singapore for their maiden title at the Commonwealth Table Tennis Championships in Cuttack Friday.England tried to change the script but the Indian men brought in a twist to the tale through birthday boy Harmeet Desai to end the English hopes to lift the Host Association’s Cup.The men beat England 3-2 while Indian women defeated England 3-0 to dethrone the defending champions Singapore who had a stranglehold on the trophy since 1997. After having won the Cup for eight consecutive times, their vice-like grip was snapped when they chose to send a weak team.Men, on the other hand, could extend their reign for the second successive time after annexing the title in the previous edition at Surat in 2015. The Indian men had won their first crown in Kuala Lumpur in 2004.Indian Men’s & Women’s team on the victory podium after winning their respective golds at 21st Commonwealth Table Tennis Championships 2019.#Smash_It #CTTC2019 #Odisha2019 pic.twitter.com/S3KZAWbHm2 Odisha Sports (@sports_odisha) July 19, 2019Archana Kamath began it all for India but it took some time before she could shake off her rustiness to overcome Ho Tin-Tin, the promising player of Chinese origin with a pen-holder grip.Archana, when attacked on the forehand, found her returns going awry but her strong backhand rescued her against the Briton. After she won the extended second game, the Indian never looked back to put India on a winning path. Manika Batra decimated Denise Payet and Madhurika woke up from her passive play to tighten the noose around Emily Bolton and England for a 3-0sweep.advertisementHarmeet Desai, celebrating his 26th birthday, not only presented himself a wonderful gift but also brought India from the brink to a face-saving title victory. India, trailing 0-2 in the final, needed Desai to give that spark which was lacking. And he did not disappoint with a fantastic win over McBeath to pave the way for Sathiyan and Sharath to complete the task in their reverse singles.If Sharath was awful against Thomas Jarvis, who is No. 186 in the world, in the opening tie, Sathiyan was equally guilty of plotting his own downfall against Samuel Walker, ranked No. 86. And that too after taking a 2-0 lead. But credit must be given to the two English players, especially Jarvis who not only blocked superbly but had the experienced Sharath in a tangle with his accuracy.Unable to counter him, Sharath threw in the towel earlier than one had expected him to.Sathiyan faced a determined Walker who inched his way slowly but surely to first draw level and up the ante in the decider, keeping a sizeable lead. But Sathiyan was able to break the shackled and twice levelled the score at 7-7, 8-8 before the Briton romped home winners to give a nice cushion (2-0).Desai then defeated David McBeath to provide the much-needed oxygen and India snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.Manika Batra pulls out of Individual events, starting July 20Manika Batra, who withdrew at the eleventh hour from singles and doubles, forced the referee to re-draw the seeding list this afternoon. Manika informed TTFI and the referee of her pullout this morning, citing her indisposition. She, however, played her part and helped India win the women’s crown.The results (Team): Men: Final: India bt England 3-2 (A. Sharath Kamal lost to Thomas Jarvis 7-11, 8-11, 4-11; G.

Justice minister wants Supreme Court opinion on new genetic testing law

first_imgOTTAWA – Canadians finally have the same protection against genetic discrimination as citizens in other countries — at least for now.The Genetic Non-Discrimination Act has received royal assent and is now the law of the land.However, Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould remains convinced the new law, the product of a private member’s bill, is unconstitutional and is determined to seek the Supreme Court’s advice on the matter.The act ensures Canadians can get genetic tests to help identify health risks and can take preventive measures without fear that they’ll be penalized when it comes to getting a job or life and health insurance.It prohibits employers, insurance companies and other service providers from requiring genetic tests or demanding to see the results of past tests.A spokesman for Wilson-Raybould says the minister remains committed to referring the law to the top court; the timing of the reference has yet to be determined.The minister maintains the law amounts to an unconstitutional use of the federal criminal law power to intrude into provincial jurisdiction to regulate the insurance industry, which is fiercely opposed to the legislation.The act is the result of a private member’s bill initiated by now-retired Sen. James Cowan, who won unanimous support for it in the Senate.Last March, it won the overwhelming support of MPs in the House of Commons, including more than 100 Liberal MPs, despite pressure from Wilson-Raybould and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to defeat it.last_img read more
