Sports Current Affairs June 5th Week 2017

1.  K Srikanth Wins Australian Open Super series Title.

The world No.11 Kidambi Srikanth has sealed his second successive Super Series win by defeating reigning Olympic champion Chen Long in the Australian Open summit clash in Sydney. 

Chen Long is World No.6 and also the current All England champion. Srikanth had lost all of his previous five encounters with Chen Long. Srikanth has also become the fifth player in the world to take part in three successive Super Series finals by reaching the summit clash in Singapore, Indonesia and Australia. 

Last Week, Srikanth had won the Indonesian Open title. In the last edition of Australian Open tournament, Srikanth was a semi-finalist.

2. Anish Bhanwala set a junior world record at World Championship.

Haryana`s Anish Bhanwala gave a robust start for the Indian challenge by clinching the 25-metre standard pistol gold with a world junior record in the Junior World Shooting Championship in Suhl, Germany. 

The 14-year-old Anish shot 579 to win the gold seven points ahead of Florian Peter of Germany. In the process, Anish also bettered the junior world record of 574 set by Denis Koulakov of Russia in Lahti, Finland, in 2002.

Interestingly, Anish has pistol prodigy Jaspal Rana as the national coach of the junior squad, who had made his initial impact on the world stage with the standard pistol gold in Milan, Italy, in 1994. 

Jaspal went on to win the Asian Games gold in centre fire pistol the same year in Hiroshima.

3. Ulaanbaatar Cup: Ankush Dahiya wins boxing gold, Devendro Singh bags silver.

The fast-rising Ankush Dahiya (60kg) clinched a gold while the experienced L Devendro Singh (52kg) settled for a silver medal on the final day of the Ulaanbaatar Cup boxing tournament in Mongolia.

The 19-year-old Ankush, who is a former Asian youth silver-medallist, defeated Korean Man Choe Chol in a split verdict, while Devendro lost to Indonesia`s Aldoms Suguro, again a split decision.

India thus signed off with a gold, a silver and three bronze medals from the tournament. K Shyam Kumar (49kg), Mohammed Hussamuddin (56kg) and Priyanka Chaudhary (60kg), lost their respective semifinal bouts to settle for bronze medals yesterday.

Devendro, a Commonwealth Games silver-medallist besides a former Asian Championships silver-winner, was the first to step inside the ring for India on Sunday and was his usual aggressive self against Suguro.

The diminutive Manipuri, who is getting back to form after recovering from some niggles, exhausted his rival with a fine display of tempo-boxing, not letting the intensity slip even once.

Denied a clear shot due to Suguro`s shell guard, Devendro did well to connect fine body blows.

However, much to the Indian camp`s disappointment, Devendro`s overall dominance did not find favour with the judges who ruled 3-2 in Suguro`s favour.

However, the disappointment soon made way for celebration when Ankush edged past Man Choe Chol.

The youngster put his long reach and height advantage to good use and landed some lusty straight blows, which swung the contest in his favour.

4. BCCI forms Committee to oversee Lodha Panel Reforms.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has constituted a special seven-member committee to analyse the few contentious Lodha panel reforms which are being opposed by the state units.

The seven-member Lodha committee has been formed under the head of Rajeev Shukla. The other members of the committee include former India captain Sourav Ganguly, T.C. Mathew (Kerala Cricket), Naba Bhattacharjee (North East representative), Jay Shah (Gujarat Cricket Association), BCCI Treasurer Anirudh Chaudhary and BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary.

The decision to form the panel was arrived at the BCCI’s Special General Meeting in Mumbai. One of the major reforms of the Lodha Committee which are being opposed by the state units speaks about disqualifying any individual who is more than 70-years-old, and who has already completed nine years in cricket administration.

The BCCI committee has been asked to submit its written report by July 10. BCCI’s move to constitute a committee is widely seen as its attempt to delay the implementations of the reforms suggested by the Lodha Committee.

Justice Lodha committee was appointed by the Supreme Court in 2014 to make recommendations to the BCCI in order to prevent frauds and conflict of interest in cricket administration. The committee was appointed in the wake of the spot-fixing scandal in Indian Premier League (IPL). The recommendations of the committee are aimed at resolving issues of governance, transparency, and conflict of interest in BCCI.

5. Wayde Van Niekerk Breaks 300m World Best And Bolt`s Meet Record At Ostrava.

Those were the words of 400m world record holder Van Niekerk ahead of his 300m race at the Golden Spike Meet in Ostrava today, and he certainly followed through on them. 

Van Niekerk decimated the field and ran 30.81, a new world best at the distance (the IAAF does not recognize 300m marks as world records). van Niekerk`s mark bettered both Usain Bolt`s meeting record of 30.97 and former 400m world record holder Michael Johnson`s world best of 30.85.

Van Niekerk was already the first ever sprinter to run sub-10 in the 100m, sub-20 in the 200m, and sub-44 in the 400m, and now he can add an impressive sub-31 in the 300m to that résumé. 

Though his much-anticipated matchup with Bolt over 200m will likely never happen as Bolt is retiring this year, van Niekerk will be running the 200m and 400m at this summer`s World Championships in London.

6. Roger Federer wins ninth Halle Open title.

Swiss legend Roger Federer has clinched his ninth Halle Open title after beating hapless Alexander Zverev 6-1, 6-3 in the final. The top seed Roger Federer showed no mercy with fourth seed Alexander Zverev after wrapping up his ninth title in his 11th Halle final within 53 minutes on Sunday.

From the start Federer piled on the pressure to establish a 4-0 lead. Meanwhile, local hero Zverev was unable to gain a foothold into the first set. Thus, the 18-time Grand Slam champion sealed the first set 6-1 with only 22 minutes played.

Zverev grabbed a better start into the second set yet the German was unable to break through Federer`s faultless service despite one break chance in the opening game. 

The former World No. 1 continued powerful and made use of break chances in the 6th game to ensure the 4-2 lead in the second set. 

Alexander Zverev failed to stop Federer`s momentum as the Swiss sewed up the match on his first match ball to reap his 92nd career title.

"It is a dream to start a final like that and to pull through then. I played great today. Everything worked out really well. "It was by far my best match of the week. Alexander also played a great tournament," Federer said after winning the warm-up tournament for Wimbledon. "It is unbelievable how he plays with 35 years. He does things on the court we will probably never see again in Tennis. 

"It is always a joy to play against him, only today it wasn`t. He could have been a little nicer to me," Zverev said. With this result, Federer won, for the first time in his career, one tournament nine times. The match was the quickest final in the history of the Halle Open.
