defeat dashed the Indian’s hopes of a repechage at the Rio Games in Rio de Janeiroon Sunday Expectations were high from Yogeshwar a London Olympics bronze-medallist and he was touted as a strong medal prospect But he looked a pale shadow of his previous gritty self in the 0-3 loss to Mandakhnaran in the qualification round bout Yogeshwar Dutt in action at the Rio 2016 Olympics PTI After his loss in

two-time World Championships bronze-winner The 33-year-old grappler from Haryana had bagged a bronze in the 60kg category at the London Games and was expected to repeat the feat in the 65kg weight division However from the very beginning Yogeshwar failed to get around Mandakhnaran during his qualification bout as the Mongolian moved at a very fast pace In the opening period Mandakhnaran earned a point due to Yogeshwar’s passivity in 30 seconds to take a 1-0 lead Mandakhnaran then turned a defensive position into an attacking one and successfully took down Yogeshwar to quickly bag two points and surge ahead With a minute to go Yogeshwar tried hard but could not get around his opponent and as a result went into the break 0-3 down Yogeshwar who qualified only in March this year for the Rio Games after struggling with a niggling knee injury was expected to turn the tables in the second period but he simply failed to script a comeback In the last minute of the bout he tried very hard to get the hold of his rival and pin him down but all his efforts went in vain The Mongolian wrestler could not earn a point either in the second period as he solely focused on defending But in the end the three points which he scored in the first half were enough to it make the pre-quarterfinal round Mandakhnaran survived one more round before running into the tough Russian who dominated the bout

Magnussen helped Australia to an Olympic bronze in the 4×100 relay at Rio Olympics (Source: Reuters) Top News Former 100 metres freestyle world champion James Magnussen has questioned Australia’s tactics in the relays at the world championships and last year’s Olympics suggesting the fastest swimmer should always lead off A strong Australia squad has yet to claim a swimming gold medal at the Budapest championships winning a silver and bronze in the women’s relays and none at all in the men’s Twice world champion Magnussen who helped Australia to an Olympic bronze in the 4×100 relay in Rio decided to skip the meet to focus on next year’s Commonwealth Games and has been unimpressed by the strategy deployed by the coaches “The relays are really confusing me this meet and they did again in Rio” Magnussen told Fox Sports TV on Saturday “The other countries are leading off with their fastest swimmers putting leads on the rest of the field and then coming home strong to win the gold “In each of the relays so far Australia has failed to lead off with their fastest swimmers have been behind from the first leg and have then failed to feature in the medals in a couple of those events” The men’s 4x100m team which swam the second fastest time in the heats despite the absence of Magnussen and Olympic sprint champion Kyle Chalmers was unable to get on the podium “It really does confuse me that … we had Cameron McEvoy our fastest swimmer swimming the third leg and by the time it got to him we were already in fourth or fifth position” Magnussen added “There’s not much you can do swimming in that what we call messy water when you’re behind “So I’d like to see Australia lead off with out fastest swimmers and even if we don’t win a medal at least at the end of the race we could say ‘we were in with a shot’” “I’m sure there are swimmers within those teams that are frustrated with the order and selection of those relay teams and I’m sure they’d be feeling the same way I did

Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed who passed away at AIIMS in New Delhi on Thursday (PTI Photo) Related News Mufti Mohammad Sayeed lived many lives and wore several hats in his long political career Journeying across parties governments and ideologies the man who constantly reinvented his politics leaves behind a complex legacy An old-school politician he had friends across the political spectrum while refusing to be constricted by any one platform To him goes the credit for expanding the political space in Kashmir When militant separatism altered the political map of J&K after 1989 his politics of outreach succeeded in addressing if not bridging the constituencies of both the separatists and the political mainstream He crafted a nuanced Kashmiri regionalism that tempered the notion of separatism by talking about self-rule and autonomy within the ambit of the Indian state and cultivating friendly relations and building soft borders with Pakistan Goli se nahi baat banege boli se was his famous line that recalled Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s doctrine of “insaniyat” as the paradigm to settle the Kashmir issue and build trust with Pakistan His skills in political management were such that he could even blunt the allegations that he was betraying the PDP’s mandate when he took the bold step post poll of allying with the BJP to form the government in 2015 Most recently his statesmanship was on display when he became the first ally of the BJP to speak up and call for a response from the prime minister in the wake of the silence in the top echelons of the Modi government after the lynching at Dadri The last few years of Mufti’s politics seemed to be in sharp contrast to the early part of his career and it was Mufti’s achievement again that he took the rupture in his stride He was a Congressman in the 1960s and 1970s when it was not profitable politically to be associated with that party in J&K In the 1980s when the NC and the Congress came close he joined VP Singh’s Jan Morcha His tenure as Union home minister in Singh’s National Front government is remembered for the hostage crisis when Kashmir militants kidnapped his daughter Rubaiya and forced the Centre to release militants in exchange for her freedom Yet in 1999 he resurrected his career and redrew the political map of J&K by floating the PDP along with his daughter Mehbooba If Mehbooba was the charismatic leader who built the organisation Mufti was the glue that held the PDP together Mehbooba’s challenge will be to build on Mufti’s legacy both in politics and government She is not just his daughter and heir but a mass leader in her own right and the BJP her ally in government has indicated it would facilitate a smooth transition Mufti was adept at dealing simultaneously with allies the Centre and different political segments in the Valley In his absence Mehbooba will need to take on that large and difficult role For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More
