first_imgAlbay to send off disaster response team to Batangas “In the course of our discussion with the sports committee (at the House of Representatives), there’s great hope that they will allocate money for the hosting and even the PSI (Philippine Sports Institute) budget,’’ said Ramirez.Cojuangco and Ramirez also functioned in their current positions during the 2005 Manila SEA Games where the Philippines captured its first overall title.“We’ve seen the effects of the 2005 hosting and this is how important it is for our country,’’ said Cojuangco. “I hope this will add more impetus for everyone to contribute to this effort, because this isnot for Peping or Secretary Cayetano or Butch Ramirez. This is for the country.’’Cayetano will arrange a meeting with Cojuangco over the next few days and attend the turnover ceremonies during the closing rites of the Kuala Lumpur SEA Games on Aug. 30.“It’s more of putting a system so everybody will have duties appealable to us. The three of us (with Cojuangco and Ramirez) have agreed to do it the Asean way, which is by consensus,’’ said Cayetano.The Philippine hosting was initially shelved after the government explained that it would just focus on the rehabilitation of war-torn Marawi City.Ramirez said talks were revived to save the hosting early this week through the efforts of Presidential Assistant Christopher Lawrence Go, Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea and Cayetano.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Ai-Ai delas Alas on Jiro Manio: ‘Sana pinahalagahan niya ang naitulong ko’ View comments Teen gunned down in Masbate Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles02:11SEA GAMES 2019: PH’s Nesthy Petecio boxing featherweight final (HIGHLIGHTS)08:07Athletes treated to a spectacle as SEA Games 2019 officially ends06:27SEA Games 2019: No surprises as Gilas Pilipinas cruises to basketball gold05:02SEA Games 2019: Philippines clinches historic gold in women’s basketball05:21Drama in karate: Tsukii ‘very sad’ over coach’s bullying, cold shoulder03:24PH’s James Palicte boxing light welterweight final (HIGHLIGHTS) READ: PSC gives 2019 SEA Games hosting green light “The athletes are the ones who will compete and it will be difficult if someone else will decide for them,’’ said Cayetano during the formal announcement of the country’s SEAG hosting at the Marriott Hotel in Paranaque City.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

Congratulations PV Sindhu, say Saina Nehwal, Parupalli Kashyap

first_img‘Rio Olympic silver medallist’ is a tag that will be attached to PV Sindhu’s name for the next four years now after her amazing feat ensured a Silver medal for India at the ongoing Games in Rio de Janeiro. Sindhu overcame stiff resistance from world class opponents like Wang Yihan of China and Nozomi Okuhara of Japan to reach the women’s singles badminton final where she was eventually beaten by world champion Carolina Marin of Spain. (Rio 2016: PV Sindhu loses to Carolina Marin, settles for Silver)The Indian shuttler has since been flooded with congratulatory messages and calls along with a heaps of praises on social media. From the President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Bollywood superstars like Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar, everybody is going gaga over Indian badminton’s new queen PV Sindhu. (Rio Olympics: Full Coverage)WATCH: PV SINDHU’S FIRST INTERVIEW AFTER RIO SILVERLondon 2012 bronze medallist Saina Nehwal, who became the first female shuttler from the country to win a medal at the Olympics, also joined the bandwagon of sports stars to wish Sindhu on her achievement today. The 26-year-old also had a special word of mention for Sindhu’s coach Pullela Gopichand, who also coached Saina for a long time until she moved out of the Gopichand academy to join hands with her current coach Vimal Kumar in Bangalore. (BAI announces cash reward for Sindhu, Gopichand)”It’s been a super tournament for her. Congratulations to Sindhu and Gopi sir (coach P Gopichand). Carolina Marin played great under pressure, it’s not easy to be number 1 and win like that,” Saina told TOI Sports from her home in Hyderabad.advertisementAnother one of Gopichand’s students – Parupalli Kashyap, who was a quarterfinalist at the London Olympics, also congratulated Sindhu on her silver medal performance.”It is a phenomenal achievement for Sindhu. Just to have beaten the world No. 2 (Wang Yihan) and No. 6 (Nozomi Okuhara) in consecutive matches to reach the final and thus ensure herself a silver is outstanding. Yes, she lost to an exceptional player like Carolina Marin, the No. 1 ranked player and top seed, but to push her repeatedly and win the first game is no small achievement and to beat her would have required Sindhu to play out of her skin,” Kashyap told TOI Sports shortly after the epic final.While the whole country is celebrating Sindhu’s win, a select few have also taken this opportunity to troll Saina. A person on Twitter recently trolled Saina, who had bowed out of the Rio Games after losing to Marija Ulitina of Ukraine in the group stage.Sure thank u ???Sindhu is doing really well ???India is doing really https://t.co/7Sf2rztear Saina Nehwal (@NSaina) August 18, 2016But Saina proved to be a champion off the badminton court as well and posted a classy reply which prompted an apology from the person afterwards.No problem my friend ???all the best to u https://t.co/peMdJaJ4Rs Saina Nehwal (@NSaina) August 18, 2016last_img read more
