  1. While India is on a roll from one scientific invention to the other, we have some kids from IIT Madras stealing the show! Elon Musk's Hyperloop Technology concept took an amazing spin when a team from IIT Madras competed in the Hyperloop Pod competition held every year and reached the finals, making them the only Asian team to do so! © YourStory If you're wondering what Hyperloop Technology actually is, it's an advanced technique that could revolutionise travel in the future. The concept was developed by Elon Musk back in 2013 through his space exploration firm called 'SpaceX' and since then, many companies and firms have been working on strengthening this technology. When the competition was held this year, a student team from IIT Madras made it to the finals after they developed a prototype Hyperloop pod called 'Avishkar Hyperloop' that would take 25 minutes to travel from Chennai to Bengaluru. © YouTube The competition had 1500 teams from all over the world who were trying to create the fastest 'pod' or a travelling vessel for the entire concept. Their aim was quite specific to build the pod though. All they had to keep in mind was that their pod attained the maximum speed and correspondingly it had comparative deceleration. Other than that, the participants were allowed to go as crazy creatively as they pleased. As 'Avishakar Hyperloop' are amongst the top 21 finalists, they'd be visiting the 'SpaceX' facility in California in July 2019 to test their prototype in a more relatable environment aka the hyperloop tunnel. © YourStory The IIT team from Madras has managed to develop an achievable prototype that will in all probability be a success as well. Suyash Singh, the founder and the head of the project claims that the pod will be able to achieve 400 to 450 KMPH during the finals and we're super ecstatic about it. The team consisting of graduates and PhD scholars has decided to use a linear induction motor, while the system will be backed by a high-power battery pack. As for the deceleration part, the team is planning on using pneumatic brakes. The pod also runs on four wheels in a single race track and at the final demonstration, the team will have to make the pod run within a one-mile-long vacuumed Hyperloop tunnel. But before the finals, the team will be allowed to test run it to make any final refinements a week prior to the actual event. "Laying the foundation for an indigenously developed hyperloop system for India will take a few years; only after that, will it be tested on the tracks. We believe the team has a long way to go and we expect the student team to be involved till the hyperloop competition is held." Ankit, the co-head of the project told a popular publication. © Facebook Team Avishkar Hyperloop Interestingly enough, all the other teams shortlisted for the finals are returning finalists, while India has made it in for the first time, without any other Asian country to compete with. The total budget for the Avishkar Hyperloop was Rs. 1 crore, which was mostly raised through crowdfunding, in-house funding and via tech companies. © Twitter Well, while we wonder if the world is really shrinking, we're really proud of team 'Avishkar Hyperloop' and we hope they do an astounding job in sunny California in July 2019.
  2. Success is something everyone strives for. Something for which people pour in all their hard work. And when it comes to finding success in sports, it's on a different level altogether. Always finding ways to improve, players and teams tend to give their best at every stage. Off lately, this immense level of competition has surfaced in the tennis circuit. Every player in the ATP Tour circuit has struggled their way to the top in some or the other tournament. Be it newcomers like Alex De Minaur, Laslo Djere or well-established players such as Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer, everyone has had their share in the record. It's probably for the first time that we are seeing 19 different champions in all the 19 tournaments held on the ATP circuit. It's really inspiring to see true competition and not just one player winning it all. 18 finals, 18 different champions on the #ATP Tour this season. Will Federer be the first to get to two titles or will Thiem be No.19? Via @ATPMediaInfo pic.twitter.com/4qtox7Mckd — TennisNow (@Tennis_Now) March 17, 2019 Last season, we witnessed a similar situation where every tournament on the tour was won by different players, but soon the streak came to an end when the 'GOAT', Roger Federer, won the Rotterdam Open right after grabbing his record 20th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open. Unlike the last season, it has been more ruthless for all the players this time around. Starting with Roberto Bautista Agut winning the Doha Open, today, it added Dominic Thiem, the 19th winner to the list, after his epic comeback win over Federer in the Indian Wells Final. Everyone thought this streak would be broken again by the Swiss Maestro but the breathtaking gameplay of the 'Dominator,' stole the show by 3-6, 6-3, 7-5 win and registered his name in the history books. © AP Another great thing about this season is that the title holders include a whole lot of young guns who won their first title on the tour. Starting off with Minaur winning in Sydney and Tennys Sandgren bagging the Auckland Open title, the list is followed by Juan Ignacio Londero in Cordoba, Reilly Opelka in New York, Laslo Djere in Rio and lastly, Radu Abolt and Guido Pella in Delray Beach and Sao Paulo respectively. The domination of the young lads on the tour can be taken as a warning for the established ones to pull up their socks as the competition would just get more fierce from here. With the next tournament being the Miami Open, let's hope we get to witness the rise of a new champion.
  3. After eagerly waiting for the UEFA Champions League draws for the quarter-finals, we finally have the table in front of us. The Champions League quarter-finals are set ð« Happy? #UCL pic.twitter.com/NQRf7Flh0o — Goal (@goal) March 15, 2019 While the rest of the contests look pretty decent, our major focus instantly shifted to the matches between Lionel Messi's Barcelona FC and Paul Pogba's Manchester United that are destined to take place on 9th April (Leg 1) and 16th April. Keeping in mind the performances carried out by two of the most historically prestigious football clubs in the recent past it is safe to say that Messi and Co. clearly have the upper hand. Case in point, Barcelona's previous match up against Lyon which the Spanish giants easily cruised past after winning 5-1 on aggregate. With Messi coming back to form in the second leg as he scored two goals and assisted twice, things don't seem to be getting any easier for the Red Devils. On the other hand, Manchester United have proven their true worth to those who underestimated them during their duel against Mbappe's Paris Saint-Germain. We scoured the internet to check out exactly how the fans from both sides reacted to the draw and the results are hilarious: Overjoyed Barcelona Fans: Rip Man United — Messi ð (@loyalmessi) March 15, 2019 Thank you Jessssssssssssuuuuussssssðððð we're through — Saucererð (@ghermaine__) March 15, 2019 I foresee an easy gameðððð...LOL ðð — Yusuf Olatunji (@Yusuf_Olatunji2) March 15, 2019 It's coming home ðªð — Leoð (@ProudCule1) March 15, 2019 RIP IN ADVANCE MAN U — Keith (@Keith58808029) March 15, 2019 Depressed and Gloomy Manchester United Fans: Dear @ChampionsLeague, Thanks for the memories but it's time to say goodbye... — Himansh (@GunnarMindset) March 15, 2019 pic.twitter.com/xmGFPvZKpy — Esoâ (@EsoKachikwu) March 15, 2019 pic.twitter.com/TMr5fN8wDV — Leo Carter ð¾ðª (@LeoCarter27) March 15, 2019 pic.twitter.com/TMr5fN8wDV — Leo Carter ð¾ðª (@LeoCarter27) March 15, 2019 My brother when I told they'd drawn Barcelona ðð pic.twitter.com/2LKqcF1fPj — William (@talibanscum) March 15, 2019 pic.twitter.com/sItdB4e1eu — Koyin ð³ð¬ (@K0YIN) March 15, 2019
  4. For a girl who often found herself lurking in the shadows of the more-popular SainaNehwal, Pusarla Venkata Sindhu, over the past few years, has not only carved her own niche in the competitive sport, but has now established herself as the poster girl of Indian badminton. The pupil of decorated Pullela Gopichand has made the nation proud on the back of sublime performances, most notably her silver-medal finish at the Rio Olympics. But, despite her ever-improving form and hardwork in training, Sindhu, and for that matter even Nehwal, found it impossible to get past Tai Tzu Ying - the 24-year-old Taiwanese who has taken the sport by storm in recent times. Ying had consistently troubled the two Indian shuttlers across tournaments, with Sindhu losing all of her six games since their meeting at Rio Olympics. For a really long time, Indian badminton fans wondered if Sindhu can someday solve the 'Ying' puzzle. And, on 13th December, to the sheer delight of Sindhu's fans, the 23-year-old recorded her first win over the Taiwanese shuttler in past seven meetings. The Hyderabad-born shuttler stunned the World No. 1 14-21, 21-16, 21-18 in a scintillating Group A match that lasted a little over an hour. © Reuters Sindhu, who had finished runners-up in the last edition of the BWF World Tour Finals, gave ample display of her grit as she bounced back from a game down and nullified a 6-11 deficit in the final game to record an emphatic win over her arch-rival. She clinched seven consecutive points to lead her opponent 18-13 and, despite Ying's resistance, the Indian shuttler held her nerve to take the third game 21-18. Sindhu's triumph was proof of the time and hardwork that her coach Gopichand and the Indian shuttler had invested to break her jinx against Ying. Thus, there was no surprise to see Indian badminton fans hailing her win on the social media. Great victory. Tai was a bugbear for both Sindhu and Saina since the last 18 months or so. Suggest Sindhu share her experience of beating Tai with Saina too.. — Anand Broto Bose (@andyboser) December 13, 2018 Go Girl.

  5. Basketball is one of the most exciting sports in the world and can keep you entertained for well over an hour. The small size of the court ensures the action is fast-paced throughout. But, even in one of the most exciting sports in the world, there are some games which are a cut above the rest. These games stand out because of the outstanding solo performances, overall team performances or sometimes, even for the sheer magnitude of what's at stake. © Getty Images So, here are 4 NBA Finals games in history that are going to go down as some of the best ever played on a basketball court: 2016 – Game 7 – Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State Warriors The Cavaliers were losing the series 3-1 when the near unstoppable Warriors were taken to task by one of the all-time greats, LeBron James. He helped his team come back to tie the series before leading them to the win in Game 7. It's hard to forget when Kyrie Irving landed a three-pointer over Steph Curry, which got Cleveland the 3-point lead needed to win the title! 1998 – Game 6 – Chicago Bulls vs Utah Jazz This match will go down in history for one reason and one reason alone - Michael Jordan's last-second jumper that left Bryon Russell on the floor. Nicknamed “The Last Shot,” it was Jordan's last basket in a Chicago Bulls jersey and helped him win his 6th NBA Championship. It also has the honour of getting the highest TV rating for any NBA game ever. 1994 – Game 7 – Houston Rockets vs New York Knicks Patrick Ewing and Hakeem Olajuwon. A couple of names not as popular as the ones above, for the average Indian fan, but they are legends in their own right. Olajuwon turned on the heat when it mattered the most. He scored more points than Ewing in every single game of the finals. Olajuwon almost got a triple-double in this game ending with 25 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists. 2011 – Game 4 – Dallas Mavericks vs Miami Heat The Miami Heat was already up 2-1 in the series and was on the verge of making it 3-1, and getting that much closer to winning their first NBA Championship title. But Dallas came back from a 9 point deficit at the start of the fourth quarter to win the game and eventually, their first and only NBA Championship title.
  6. Not very long ago, Saina Nehwal reigned supreme as the postergirl of Indian badminton. Then came a challenger, Pusarla Venkata Sindhu. The young girl fought tooth and nail through a series of brilliant performances on the international stage. But, as Nehwal and Sindhu fought for supremacy, Indian badminton took pride in the fact that they could now boast two of the best shuttlers in the world - a luxury that eluded India for many years. Today, Sindhu is arguably the more convincing and consistent shuttler than her experienced compatriot. While Nehwal has struggled with injuries and unfavourable results, Sindhu has enjoyed a great run across tournaments. If anyone has followed her career graph, they'd agree that Sindhu, over the years, has mastered the art of delivering in crunch situations. And, her silver-medal finish in the ongoing 2018 Asian Games is a testimony to that. After becoming the first Indian shuttler to reach a singles final at the Asian Games, Sindhu went on further to etch her name in the annals of Indian sports history by bagging a historic silver medal in the women's singles event. The 23-year-old went down fighting 21-13, 21-16 against Tai Tzu Ying in the summit clash. © AP Going into the final having lost five straight games to Tai, Sindhu, ahead of their clash, claimed that she had a few cards up her sleeve and some ideas to counter her Chinese Taipei opponent. But, on the day it mattered the most, none of those tricks could save Sindhu from suffering her sixth consecutive defeat against Tai. Having displaced Nehwal in the semifinals, Tai appeared to be destined for glory as she began dominating the final right from the start. Making full use of her speed and precision, Tai forced Sindhu to play catch up as she romped to a 5-0 lead in the first game. The Indian shuttler tried to cut the deficit, but Tai was always a step ahead. From deploying perfectly-disguised drop shots to bamboozling the opponent with clever wristwork, the Chinese Taipei player wrapped up the first game 21-13 in a mere 16 minutes. Staring down the barrel, Sindhu knew she had to begin well in the second game. Playing with a strategy to push Tai to the back of the court, Sindhu did well to put the second game level at 4-4. © Reuters However, a sense of urgency and desperation to push the tempo saw Sindhu committing far too many errors. When she managed to find adequate range on her deep shots, Sindhu's drops that followed were just not effective to win points. With every single point, Tai tightened her grip on the gold medal and an un-returnable smash saw her taking a 15-10 lead. The final stages of the game saw Tai earning a match point and while Sindhu managed to save one, she couldn't prolong the inevitable after her opponent notched up the gold with a brilliant drop shot. Sindhu's dream of pulling one back against Tai and securing India's first Asian games gold in badminton singles event went up in flames. If Sindhu was good, Tai was even better. There is no denying that Sindhu's silver medal is worthy of praise, it surely is. But, the fact that the Indian shuttler has now lost three finals at major events this year undoubtedly exposes an area of improvement that Sindhu needs to work on. © AP Before suffering a heartbreak against Tai, Sindhu lost the Commonwealth Games final to Nehwal in Gold Coast and the summit clash of World Championships to Carolina Marin in Nanjing earlier this year. She had also lost the finals at India Open to Beiwen Zhang and Thailand Open to Nozomi Okuhara this year. Sindhu is undeniably a fantastic shuttler who probably got outplayed by Tai in the final, but the fact she has been losing the finals more consistently than winning them is something that could very well dent her reputation and surely derail her journey to becoming one of the world's best.
  7. It's pouring silver and gold for Indian athletes at Jakarta. There is no dearth of talent in India and the world is getting a taste of it at the Asian Games, with certain back to back victories in fields like shooting, wrestling, swimming and now badminton. In another historic victory, 23-year-old PV Sindhu has scripted history by becoming the first Indian woman shuttler to reach the women's singles final by defeating World No. 2 Akane Yamaguchi from Japan. © Twitter Reportedly, Sindhu clinched victory with a score of 21-17, 15-21, 21-10. She won the semi-finals by a margin of 11 points and finished the game in 66 minutes. Earlier, in 2016 Sindhu became the first Indian to reach the finals and win a silver medal at the Olympics and first from the country to reach two World Championship finals. © Twitter Sindhu will now fight for gold with World No.1 Tai Tzu Ying, who defeated Saina Nehwal by 17-21, 14-21. Saina will take home a bronze medal at the 18th Asian Games in Indonesia. Milestone achieved!@Pvsindhu1 becomes the first ð®ð³woman to secure a ð¥at the Asiad. A confident and boisterous display to seal the SF tie 21-17, 15-21, 21-10 against ð¯ðµ' s Yamaguchi in a thriller of a fixture. #GoForGold #IndiaontheRise #AsianGames2018 pic.twitter.com/rVFjJT7NMi — BAI Media (@BAI_Media) August 27, 2018 It is also the 1st time after 1982 Asiad that India will win singles medals in Badminton. Before the 18th Asian Games, India had won eight badminton medals and six of them are in team events and one in men's doubles and one in men's singles. With this, India's medal tally has now reached 37 - 7 gold, 10 silver and 20 bronze. Source: Hindustan Times
