CWG Delhi 2010 World Discus Throw Champion Dani Samuels Challenges Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist Indian Discus Thrower Krishna Poonia for $20,000 ‘Winner-Takes-All’ Contest:

World Discus Throw Champion Dani Samuels Challenges Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist Indian Discus Thrower Krishna Poonia for $20,000 ‘Winner-Takes-All’ Contest: It is unprofessional... 

All three medals in Discus Throw Event won by Indians

Discus-throw is not an act that can be controlled totally by the thrower him/herself. There are many other parameters that depend on external conditions. I was a discus thrower for about 6 – 8 years in nineteen sixties; as such, I have basic concepts about the sport and the techniques involved with it. Let us enlist the activities involved in throwing a discus. They are as follows:
  1. Firstly- the  thrower holds the discus in one of the hands by resting the centre of the discus over the palm and holding the circular edge of the discus with the help of the fore-ends of all the four fingers 
  2. Secondly- the thrower swings the hand, along with the discus, back and forth,  with the discus suspended intact over the palm and resting at the finger-tips
  3. Thirdly- the thrower continues swinging the discus in anticlockwise direction (for right-handed thrower) along with the entire body by fully outstretching the hand at the farthest distance from the body
  4. Fourthly- the thrower takes a couple of forcefully accelerated  rotations thereby providing the maximum momentum to the discuss held in the outstretched hand constantly in horizontal position
  5. Finally- once the thrower achieves the maximum momentum for the discus he/she launches the discus in the given direction with an  added push at the time of the throw hurling the discus like a projectile at almost 45deg elevation and keeping the discus in horizontal position and parallel to the line of trajectory 
I have explained the above five stages of actions for throwing the discus. Now let us also discuss the following important parameters that influence the success of the throw and the distance achieved:
  1. The radius at which the discus is rotated along with the thrower’s body around the vertical axis passing through the centre of gravity of the throwers body
  2. The more the radios of rotation the farther would be the distance thrown
  3. This is the reason why taller persons make better discus throwers
  4. The discus should be thrown at a suitable angle of elevation almost at 45deg 
  5. The discus should travel spinning fast in a stabilized condition with minimum turbulence or wobbling 
  6. The wind density and wind velocity will affect the distance thrown by drifting the discus towards back, right or left
  7. The foot gear used by the thrower will also influence the push exerted at the discus at the time of throw-off 
Considering the above description of discus throw and various parameters, characteristics and conditions, this event is not a sport that can be challenged for a bout like boxing and wrestling. There are many external, environmental and manmade parameters over which the thrower has no control. 


In view of all that, the world champion Australian Dani Samuels’ challenge for the $20,000 winner-takes-all contest challenge to the Commonwealth Games gold medalist Indian discus thrower Krishna Poonia, appears to be a nonprofessional act. The spirit behind this challenge appears to be vengeance rather than the feeling of healthy competition. I appeal to the world fraternities of sports and games to appeal to the world champion Dani Samuals to take back the challenge and uphold the spirit of healthy competitive regime in the world.

Delhi 2010 CWG Commonwealth Games Discus throw gold-medallist Poonia ready to face Dani anywhere in the world:

Click here for NDTV news report: 
Delhi 2010 CWG Commonwealth Games  Discus throw gold-medallist Poonia ready to face Dani anywhere in the world: 




Commonwealth Games gold medalist discus thrower Krishna Poonia has accepted world champion Dani Samuels’ challenge and is ready to compete with her for the $20,000 winner-takes-all contest, anywhere in the world. However her top priority is her preparations for the Asian Games, said her husband Virender  Poonia.


Krishna Poonia has an all-time best discus throw of 63.69m, which she did in April whereas; Dani Samuels has her best of 65.84m which she threw in February. 


Dani should not take it for granted that she would be able to throw 65.84m or more in the proposed challenge. At the same time she should not have any doubts that Krishna Poonia’s probable throw might also be more than her career best 63.69m. 


In fact throwing such challenges is an unhealthy practice initiated by the Australian Discus Thrower. It would have been better for her if she competed in the Delhi 2010 Commonwealth Games and proved her excellence.

Krishna Poonia entered the history books of Indian sports and has initiated a challenge from her Australian counterpart… CWG Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010:

CWG Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010:  Krishna Poonia entered the history books of Indian sports and has initiated a challenge from her Australian counterpart… 


Krishna Poonia entered the history books of Indian sports by winning the gold medal for discus throw in the commonwealth games CWG Delhi 2010. At the same time the coach of Australia's discus thrower, Dani Samuels has thrown an open challenge to Krishna Poonia to compete with her.


The prestigious Diamond League has offered $10,000 prize money for the winner in the proposed showoff; whereas, another sponsor has doubled the prize money to $20,000 for the competitor who would throw the discus farther. 


It looks a bit off-track and surely against the decent sportsman spirit that should have been maintained in the international sports world. Such statements by sports persons or by their coaches and officials could have been easily avoided.

HHH


Indian hockey team celebrating their victory over England and qualifying for the finals...


India lost to Australia by 0–8 goals and settled for a silver...


-Harish Jharia


India was defeated in the final of men’s Hockey by demoralizing score of 0 – 8 goals. We as spectators and reviewers never imagined such a bad defeat for India who played an international class of hockey with England and defeated them in a nail biting finish in sudden death penalty stocks shootout. 


I firmly believe that Australia have won the match against a very strong Indian team by following strategic tricks in the match rather than outclassing the Indian team in playing expertises, fitness and stamina.  They made most of the goals in counter attacks when the Indian players were in the other half of the ground. 


First they let the Indians to have control of the ball and enter their half and then suddenly they counterattacked by long passes and shot goals at an unprotected goalpost. India should learn this tactics, rather than blindly following the traditional play of keeping the ball in their control and attacking like military troops. 


The other trick Australians followed was strategically and deliberately getting penalty corners in their favor by pushing the ball at Indian players’ bodies in their ‘D’. Thereafter they used their expertise in converting the penalty corners into goals. India will have to learn these tactics also for earning goals by making the opposite team to commit fouls in the ‘D’. 


The Indian team should also learn to frequently changing tactics from short-passes to long-passes and vice versa for breaking the rhythm of the opponent’s play. They should also stop giving so very many back-passes in their own half, at times when they are required to move fast for multiple attacks against the opposite team.
