  1. University level athlete Infinite Tucker not only has the most heroic name in the global sports fraternity, but also has the superpowers to back it up. Participating in the 400m hurdles final at the Southeastern Conference (SEC) Track and Field Championships in the United States of America, Tucker instantly became a social media hit when he channelled his inner Superman just inches away from the finish line. Finding himself to be neck to neck with a fellow athlete while the finish line approached, dedicated to win the race, Tucker launched himself into the air, clearing the line in the most uncanny yet badass manner. When Miller-Uibo “dove” (fell) to beat Felix a couple years back, I was on the radio for an hour or so explaining to people why diving is likely not a good finishing tactic. Thankfully Infinite Tucker wasn't listening. #bestnameever pic.twitter.com/JR0VhZyBq3 — Jason Kerr (@kerrjason) May 12, 2019 Once the race was over and people lauded Tucker's dramatic finish, the athlete let out the secret as to why he decided to jump over the finish line this way: Comments from Infinite Tucker on his diving victory in the SEC 400m hurdles. pic.twitter.com/PhCOb2ozzO — Texas A&M Track and Field (@aggietrk) May 12, 2019 The athlete who saw Tucker take the leap while running besides him, Robert Grant, on the contrary, was not at all pleased with the way the race came to an end, yet managed to show his displeasure while not gathering too much attention: "If I say what I thought on this camera, microphone right now, Coach (Pat) Henry would kick me off the team." he said after the race. The jumping clip quickly became a social media meme source and Twitter of course had things to say: He went full Superman! @aggietrk's Infinite Tucker goes ALL OUT for the gold. #SCtop10 pic.twitter.com/gEr05kdPd9 — SEC Network (@SECNetwork) May 12, 2019 I wish I was as dedicated to anything as Infinite Tucker is to crossing the finish line first. pic.twitter.com/DgEoPvJwHZ — Clara Goodwin (@5NEWSClara) May 12, 2019 This is how you finish a race! Check out Infinite Tucker from Texas A&M winning the 400 hurdles at the 2019 SEC Championship this weekend. The video is pretty impressive if you look it up. Never give up or jog across the finish line in a race. ð pic.twitter.com/KzAEdq9o2M — C-C Cross Country (@CCCSDxc) May 12, 2019
  2. The idea of motorsports is just a cog in the wheel of India's mass opinion. We consider it a largely elitist hobby that is only affordable for a privileged few, despite being among the world's largest automobile manufacturers. Maybe that's why the country has barely contributed to the global motorsport scene, both in terms of producing world-class race drivers as well as racing technology. Part of the Mahindra & Mahindra automobile conglomerate, Mahindra Racing is out to change the latter, and eventually, influence the former. First things first; Mahindra Racing is the only Indian team (and one of the founder teams) in the Formula E Championship, a quickly growing class of international motorsport that uses only electric cars. It has already garnered a sixth of the total viewership of the Formula 1 around halfway into the fifth season of its existence. A total of 11 teams are contesting for the team championship with two drivers representing each outfit in the 2019 edition. Click here for Formula E rules, points system and more Mahindra Racing had finished on the podium (at third) a couple of seasons ago, followed by a close fourth last year. This season, they were at a healthy third as I arrived in Paris on the eve of the ePrix on Saturday. Jérôme d'Ambrosio of Belgium, who drives the #64 for MR led the driver's standings by one point. “The fundamental line that we use in Formula E is,” Mahindra Racing Team Principle Dilbagh Gill tells me on the sidelines of the race track, “you don't go to the race, the race comes to you.” Dilbagh has had a more than a decade-long journey with Mahindra and comes on the back of a colourful CV with various international projects. He speaks with fervour about being an international pioneer in this field and you might recognise him from passionate mid-race garage visuals. © Mahindra Racing Naysayers were sceptical about the no-sound 'disadvantage' of these cars, the 'slow' speed of the race and the feasibility, he tells me. But Formula E has come a long way with 11 teams in contention this season, with the likes of Porsche and Mercedes said to be joining in from 2020. “It (Formula E) has become a genuine form of racing. It's no longer like Formula 1. This season, the seven races have had seven winners from seven different teams. And you still don't know who will win the eighth one,” he says. “Second part is if you see any traditional forms of motorsport, only males used to watch it. That is also changing, where it is becoming more family oriented. When the father, who is into motorsports and he brings his kid, he is actually having a conversation during the race with him, because they can speak to each other with the loud sounds of the Formula 1.” As a result, the female demographic has warmed up to the idea. “In F1, 80 per cent of the audience is male and 20 per cent is female. Here, it's 52 per cent male and 40 per cent female and 8-10% kids.” The renaissance of EVs in the 21st Century (electric cars held several performance records over internal combustion engine cars but fell behind in performance during the first decade of the 20th century, notable electric-only racing series have shown an upward trend in both cars and bike circuits. Apart from Formula E, there are the likes of the Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy, the World Rallycross Championship, the World Solar Challenge and the MotoE World Cup. In other racing events, electric vehicles are competing alongside combustion engine vehicles, for example in the Isle of Man TT and the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, and in some cases winning outright. In January 2017, a pure electric car participated in the Paris-Dakar Rally and completed the entire route of 9000 km through Argentina, Paraguay and Bolivia. The vehicle had been specially designed and built for the race. The car had a 250 kW engine (340 hp) and a 150 kWh battery. The battery consisted of several modules. Each module could be charged separately by a power cable to speed up the charging process. The obvious question here is that how does this global electrification impact India? “To a large extent, the user is millennial, says Dilbagh, “They are now delaying the decision to buy the first car. An Uber can pick you up from anywhere at the press of a button, so what's more convenient can be sought. That's why they are delaying those decisions. They are also getting conscious about the mobility coming from the electric and the conversation about sustainability.” With Mahindra Racing, he believes, new electric mobility technology also reaches the end-user quicker. “The transition from race-to-road is much higher and faster. What you see in the car today literally can be in a car within 18 months. While in a conventional model, it takes six years. We say that 2030 (with reference to India's Mission 2030 of going electric-heavy) is far away, but it is just 11 years away and in the next 11 years, Mahindra Racing will have 15 alterations in developing a new car (one race technology every Formula E season).” But where does that take us in terms of motorsport in India? Barring the maiden edition of the Formula 1 that took place in the then-newly inaugurated Buddha International Circuit in Noida, India has stayed away from the global motorsport map. Of course, due credit has to be given to Narain Karthikeyan and Karun Chandhok, but the impact has been hot and cold. Racers have not really lined up to participate in competitions like Indian Formula Manipal DJS Racing Indian National Rally Championship JK Tyre National Racing Championship SPCE Racing 4ZE Racing. “We just need a little bit more clarification in terms of regulations in India, because a lot of other drivers in the championship are still fighting the tax problems, they couldn't drive in Formula One. There is no clear directive yet, as to where does motorsport fall in terms of taxation,” says Dilbagh. Mahindra Racing is now aspiring to further its long-term goals by escalating driver education in India. They want to use the data from the race track and find a way to reach out to public transport and truck drivers in the country for better efficiency. Electric is the way forward after all. “There is a huge shift from three peddled and now going two to one peddle drive. While we talk of passenger cars also, if we can take some of this data and put it in commercial vehicle, you can increase the range by 15-20 percent by just using a peddle inside. At the end of the day you get more mileage and money. Mileage to money there is direct correlation.” I came to Paris with very little knowledge about e-racing but by the end of the weekend, there has been so much to take away despite a bittersweet race day for Mahindra Racing (where Jerome crashed and the team was unlucky to not start the race at the pole position). The beauty of Formula E lies in the fact that the eight race of the season saw its eighth winner, from the eighth distinct country. If we can find a way to channel the passion of the drivers, the ambitions of the manufacturers and the will of the powers-to-be, there could still be hope of saving the environment in a manner that is both simple and modern. © Mahindra Racing © Mahindra Racing
  3. Delhi Capitals (DC) did themselves a big favour when they traded Shikhar Dhawan from Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 2019 Indian Premier League (IPL) Auctions. Carrying on his momentum from the last game against Mumbai Indians (MI), Dhawan went on to score a thrilling half-century in the second match itself against the mighty Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Being the only one to score big in the team, the left-hander piled up 51 runs out of the 147 of the team. Getting some assistance from Prithvi Shaw at the beginning, followed by Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant in the later stages, 'Gabbar' moulded his innings to perfection to aid the home side. View this post on Instagram Patient. Determined. Responsible That was @shikhardofficial today for the @delhicapitals as he notched up his 33rd #VIVOIPL half century ð A post shared by IPL (@iplt20) on Mar 26, 2019 at 9:01am PDT Despite the loss, DC will be delighted as most of their top-order batsman appear in good form, unlike the previous seasons. Whether it was Pant and Colin Ingram in the opening match or Dhawan and Shaw in last night's encounter, Delhi's top-order looks in ominous form. Thanks to his fifty against CSK, Dhawan (94 runs) climbed to the second spot in the race for the 'Orange Cap', which is currently donned by his teammate Pant who leads the list with 103 runs to his name. With the arrival of iconic Ricky Ponting as the coach and legendary Saurav Ganguly as Team Advisor, a new-look Delhi looks is slowly, yet steadily establishing themselves as serious contenders this season.
  4. One of the proven all-rounders in limited-overs cricket, Ravindra Jadeja continued to add value to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) during their six-wicket triumph over Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium on 26th March. The 30-year-old rattled the stumps to send Keemo Paul packing before finishing with impressive figures of 1-23 against Delhi last night. In the batting department, Chennai didn't need Jadeja's services with the willow as Shane Watson (44) and MS Dhoni (32*) took the visitors home with two balls to spare. © Twitter/IPL Earlier in the opening match, Jadeja made merry on the raging turner at the MA Chidambaram stadium where he finished with figures of 2-15. Apart from taking the wickets of Colin de Grandhomme and Umesh Yadav, Jadeja was also electric on the field, taking two key catches to get rid of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. With three wickets in his kitty so far, Jadeja occupied the third position in the list of leading wicket-takers in the ongoing season. He is only behind his teammates Dwayne Bravo (4 wickets) and Imran Tahir (4 wickets) who currently dons the 'Purple Cap'. Also, the fact that four CSK bowlers - Tahir, Bravo, Jadeja and Harbhajan Singh - currently leads the list of leading wicket-takers in the tournament, goes on to show the bowling prowess of Dhoni-led side which is taking huge strides in their title defence.
  5. Defending Indian Premier League champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) seem to have a tight command on the tournament right from the very beginning. After winning the first match quite comfortably against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), CSK stepped into Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium on Tuesday, to play Delhi Capitals (DC) in their first away match of IPL 2019. Too late experienced to be fazed by away conditions, CSK once again restricted Delhi to the score of 147, courtesy DJ Bravo, who took crucial wickets of the dangerous Rishabh Pant and Colin Ingram in the 16th over and then took the opener Shikhar Dhawan by surprising him in his next over itself. View this post on Instagram Moves from ð¹ð¹, brought to ð®ð³ by @djbravo47 ð Celebrating 3 huuuge wickets with a jig the #VIVOIPL has grown to love ð #DCvCSK A post shared by IPL (@iplt20) on Mar 26, 2019 at 8:57am PDT Being backed by Shardal Thakur and Imran Tahir under the Delhi skies gave Bravo an advantage to take wickets while the pressure was built at the other end. Bagging three wickets in this match and already having a wicket from the last match, took Bravo's total wicket count to four, which places him on the second position for the Purple Cap run, right after his teammate Imran Tahir who bags the first spot on the basis of better economy rate. It was the cherry on the cake for the 35-year-old allrounder as apart from getting the wickets, he also got to score the winning runs for his team to take them to victory with two balls to spare.
  6. The casual fans of the Indian Premier League (IPL) may not be aware of the name, 'Nitish Rana' who enjoyed a supreme 68-run innings in Kolkata Knight Riders' season opening game against Bhuvneshwar Kumar's SunRisers Hyderabad on Sunday. However, the left-handed batsman has made quite a name for himself in the first-class cricket circuit and has come to be known as more of a game-winning player for his side much like the former skipper of the Indian cricket team in Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Rana, who hit eight boundaries and three maximums in a heroic run-chase by his KKR last evening, is a Delhi born athlete who made his first-class cricket debut during the 2015-16 season of the Ranji Trophy and ended up being the lead-scorer of the team (557). He also scored a total of 218 runs during the 2015-16 season of Vijay Hazare Trophy and was the second highest run-getter for Delhi. The 2015–16 season of Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy has to be the highlight of the cricketer's career (until yesterday) during which he helped a struggling Delhi survive through tough games against Andhra, Baroda and Jharkhand whilst scoring a total of 299 runs in 8 innings at a staggering strike rate of 175.88. With an aggressive batting style and the ability to fill in the bowling lineup as a part-time off-spinner, Rana eventually made it to the roster of Team India A for the 2018-19 Deodar Trophy and the squad for last year's ACC Emerging Teams Asia Cup. On Sunday, Rana contributed immensely towards Kolkata's successful 183-run chase while forming a decent partnership with Robin Uthappa (35) only for Andre Russell and Shubman Gill to seal the deal and bring a great start to his side. For his efforts, his fans took to Twitter to praise the 25-year-old: Nitish Rana showing positive character, prevailing his fantastic form , how prudently he hit reverse sweep to Rashid Khan.#KKRvSRH #KKRHaiTaiyaar — amey guthe (@amey_guthe) March 24, 2019 Russell you beauty ð¥ð¥ð¥ð¥ Nitish Rana ð¥ð¥ð¥ Subhman Gill ð¥ð¥ð¥ — A Quantum Dot (@aQuantumDot) March 24, 2019 Nitish Rana's cut shot is a thing of beauty.#KKRvSRH — Naresh Singaravelu (@NareshVelu) March 24, 2019 Nitish Rana On ð¥ Great batting.#IPL2019 #KKRvSRH — Prince ð®ð³á´°áµË¡Ê°á¶¦ á¶áµáµá¶¦áµáµË¡Ë¢ (@iPrince55) March 24, 2019 Nitish Rana >>> Rinku Singh End of debate.#KKRvSRH — Akshay Sharma (@akshaypasu) March 24, 2019
  7. As one of the five key players for SunRisers Hyderabad, David Warner has a crucial role to play in the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League and surely the Australian realises his role. Add to that the need for Warner to work towards getting rid of the scar on his identity due to the infamous ball-tampering case in South Africa last year and make the cricketing fans of the world realise his worth and how talented a batsman he is. What a comeback @davidwarner31 ðð#VIVOIPL #KKRvSRH pic.twitter.com/hPQ1I5QX3f — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) March 24, 2019 Warner has, time and again, poured his heart out to the public and spoken about how important are his integrity and respect in the eyes of his fans. For him, it maybe even bigger than the winning the IPL trophy for his franchise for the second time. After being found guilty of ball-tampering charges in March last year, Warner had decided to step down from his role as the captain of SunRisers only to get banned by the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) from playing the IPL altogether. This, however, cannot and did not take away any credibility from the fact that Warner has been one of the most dominating batsmen in the history of the IPL and has the silverware to prove it. Before the 2019 season began and despite missing an entire season of play, the Aussie batsmen held the record for scoring the most runs by an overseas player (4,014), most half-centuries (35) and the highest individual score by a captain (126) in the league. What a comeback @davidwarner31 ðð#VIVOIPL #KKRvSRH pic.twitter.com/hPQ1I5QX3f — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) March 24, 2019 Most importantly, Warner has been the leading run scorer of the IPL for two entire seasons and won the well-celebrated orange cap in 2015 and 2017, both of which were while he played for his current team, SunRisers Hyderabad. It looks like Warner has no intentions of getting rid of the cap anytime soon as he went off in Hyderabad's season opener, scoring 85 runs off just 53 balls which included nine 4s and three huge 6s in a loss to Dinesh Karthik's Kolkata Knight Riders. If Warner continues with his ferocious batting form, the day is not far when he will once again be known for his shots going out of the park and not for the incident that got him disgrace a year ago.
  8. For a team that recorded historic win in Tests before winning the ODI series Down Under, the Indian cricket team got a stark reminder of Australia's capabilities in the first Twenty20 International (T20I) following their three-wicket loss in Visakhapatnam. Barring KL Rahul, none of India's batting superstars stepped up as they stuttered to a mediocre total of 126 runs. The Indian bowlers tried to put up a brave fight despite few runs to play for, but in the end, Umesh Yadav's 14-run final over saw Australia to eke out a thrilling win and allowed them to take a 1-0 lead in the two-match T20I series. Going into the 2nd T20I, the Indian cricket team needs to put their best foot forward as they take on the visitors in the must-win clash at the M Chinnaswamy stadium in Bengaluru. But, while the hosts aim to bounce back in a bid to level the series, some of India's biggest superstars will also fancy notching up individual records. © BCCL The likes of Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma are all in fray to etch their name in the history books with the potential individual records they can achieve during the 2nd T20I on 27th February. Rohit is on the verge of shattering the record for most sixes in the shortest format. The Mumbai batsman has slammed 102 sixes in 86 T20I innings so far. He is just two 'big hits' away from overtaking the likes of Chris Gayle and Martin Guptill who are currently tied at the top in the list of most sixes in T20Is. The 31-year-old is already leading the list of Indian batsmen with most sixes in T20Is. The nearest person to his tally of T20I sixes (in India) is Yuvraj Singh who boasts of 74 maximums in 51 innings in the shortest format. He is way ahead from the likes of Dhoni and Kohli who have 49 sixes in 84 innings and 48 'big hits' in 61 innings respectively. © BCCL Both, Kohli and Dhoni might be behind Rohit in the list of most T20I sixes, but, going into today's clash, the duo will be seen competing in a race of their own. The two cricketers are on the verge of bringing up a half-century of sixes in T20Is. And, with Dhoni needing just one and Kohli requiring two 'big hits', it'll be interesting to see who reaches the milestone first. While the individual milestones wouldn't really be on their minds, these three vital cricketers will be eager to produce an improved performance to help their side level the T20I series against Australia today.
  9. If you're a die-hard fan of Valentino Rossi, and have grown up idolising Giacomo Agostini, it is already settled that you love the world of two-wheeler racing, and live for the thrill and danger that come with it. And while you may practise the sport in your hometown, sometime away, we know you dream big. So today, we have listed out five of the most toughest race tracks in the world that are every biker's dream. 1. TT Course, The Isle Of Man iomtt.com The Isle of Man TT Mountain Course is the holy grail of all motorsports across the globe, and undoubtedly one of the most dangerous ones too. Started in 1904, the event takes place every May and June at the Isle Of Man, a tiny country between England and Ireland, that doubles up as 37.73-mile arduous, claw-shaped mountain course with sharp bends, deadly turns and bumpy roads, set between gorgeous, hilly green landscapes. 2. Silverstone Circuit motorsport.com Located right next to the Northamptonshire villages of Silverstone and Whittlebury, the circuit hosts the British round of the MotoGP series. The Silverstone circuit is every pro-biker's dream, and why wouldn't it be? The legendary corners and straights, the thrill of the track and the camaraderie of the pits, add to the adrenaline rush. 3. Suzuka Circuit Suzuka Circuit Suzuka Circuit at Suzuka City is the first full-scale international racing course in Japan with five configurations - the car full circuit, the motorcycle full circuit, the "Suzuka east," "Suzuka west car," and "Suzuka west motorcycle" configurations. Some of the circuit's major events include the Asia Road Racing Championship, Coca-Cola Suzuka 8 Hours and MFJ Grand Prix Superbike Race. 4. The Sepang International Circuit MotoMalaya Designed by German architect, Hermann Tilke, The Sepang International Circuit is a motorsport race track in Sepang, Selangor, Malaysia. The main circuit, which is 5.5 kilometres long, is known for its sweeping corners and wide straights. Some of the major events of the circuit are Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prixx 2019, Sepang 1000KM Endurance Race 2019, and 2019 Pirelli Malaysia Superbike Championship. 5. Mugello Circuit Mugello & Tuscany With a total track-length of 3.2 miles, Mugello Circuit at Tuscany, Italy is known for its fast curves and incredible slopes. Constructed in 1974, the circuit is situated 292 metres above sea level, and has 15 steep turns. When we talk about the craziest race tracks in the world, we also need to include mind-blowing super-bikes that race on these tracks. One such bike that fits the bill of adventurous racing is the all new TVS Apache RR 310 with an engine capacity of 312.2cc that delivers best-in-class power-to-weight ratio. TVS Apache The bike is well-equipped with advanced aerodynamics to achieve maximum downforce, minimum wind blast and higher top speed. But that's not it. Reverse inclined engine makes upstream air being used effectively to pass through the air filter with ram effect. This gives a compact engine layout and optimum engine temperature at all conditions. Besides, RR 310's lightweight trellis frame is perfect for racing. It offers higher stiffness with best structural efficiency for total control, excellent dynamic response at higher speeds and ease of maneuverability to cut through city traffic. And if you're a biker yourself, here is what makes the bike the ultimate racecraft. TVS Apache The rider triangle is optimized for better load distribution on the shoulder that gives excellent steering control and good low-back comfort. The seat profile is sculpted for ease of sliding around to achieve precise racing line while hitting the apex. Sounds like a machine made for every adrenaline junkie ever!
  10. NASCAR races are extremely fun to watch. The sight of sports cars covered in sponsored logos just whizzing past in a split of a second, the sound of engines working on overload combined with the smell of burning tyres grinding against asphalt just gives a rush of adrenaline to the viewer. What makes the sport so exciting, rather nerve-wracking, is the fear of a blunder that could take place even with the slightest of nudges between the races that are going at 320 kph. Car crashes are pretty common in racing events, much like NASCAR Daytona 500 which produced one of the biggest collisions in the history of the sport. When driver Paul Menard tried to do a 'bump and run' around Matt DiBenedetto's car number 95, he nudged the rear passenger side of DiBenedetto's ride resulting in it to spin out in the middle of the race track while knocking out 17 cars in his way with the race in its last leg. Although nobody got injured during the crash, which is miraculous to say the least and Menard took complete responsibility for the entire incident, what prepares a race driver's psyche to take the hit during the smash is worth talking about. In an interview with Tampa Bay Times, NASCAR driver and one of the sufferers of the Daytona crash, Aric Almirola shares his experience. “At a certain point in the wreck, you're just kind of along for the ride. The initial instinct is to try to drive the car and avoid the wreck. Once you know that you're in the wreck, you kind of just brace for impact,” said the driver. “A lot of people take their hands off the steering wheel, but that is very unnatural for me. I keep my hands on the steering wheel. I kind of lock my elbow in and just, everything tenses up and tightens up and you brace for impact.” Amongst the first cars to get involved in the chain reaction that Menard had started, Almirola's ride (# 10) got tagged behind car #12 and almost did a somersault. Due to the momentum of the drag in favour of the car, Almirola stayed on his wheels and didn't turn over. © NASCAR In totality, the crash led to wrecking 21 cars (almost half of the contestants) but luckily not a single driver got injured. Obviously, it wasn't long before people took to Twitter to show their concerns towards the mishap and the safety of the racers: This still amazes me how big this crash was even for Daytona #NASCAR #Daytona500 pic.twitter.com/Shh7tLzp0c — Penske17 (@Penske_17) February 20, 2019 Now that's a nasty crash... #Daytona — Steve Twynstra (@SteveTwynstra) February 17, 2019 The biggest Daytona 500 crash of the whole night!!! pic.twitter.com/dvYojiuAzG — Gameoholic1994 (@gameoholic1994) February 17, 2019 Daytona 500.

    Honest Review: Race 3

    Race 3 was one of the biggest blockbusters of 2018. But, was it a good movie? Zain & Shantanu went to watch it in order to figure out. Here's their honest review of the movie.
  12. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced its 2019 Oscar nominations late Tuesday evening, with 'Roma' and 'The Favourite' leading in the league with an incredible 10 nominations a film. via GIPHY Fellow nominees in this category happened to be 'Black Panther', 'Bohemian Rhapsody', 'Green Book', 'A Star Is Born', 'Vice' and 'BlacKkKlansman'. via GIPHY Where on one hand 'A Star Is Born' and 'Vice' earned a giant 8 nominations per film, 'Black Panther' earned 7, 'BlacKkKlansman' got nominated in 6 and 'Bohemian Rhapsody' earned a total of 5 nominations. via GIPHY 'Green Book' also remained a major eye-catcher this year with 5 nominations.

  13. Do you ever feel like a 40-year-old stuck inside the body of a 25-year-old? Getting tired and exhausted easily, prefer chilling at home with a can of Red Bull and cancelling trekking plans with friends and only settling for Goa (because beach)? Well, that's the story for most of us of this generation. While some of us feel that even picking up a needle is a difficult task, people twice our age are setting life goals for us. One of the greatest examples is Milind Soman. © Instagram Recently, the model-actor ran 72 kms in Delhi to mark the 72 years of Independence. He is also someone who finished in 2015, the toughest and the most brutal race on this planet - the 'Ironman Triathlon'. But, looks like Milind Soman has found a tough competition in 53-year-old Nashik Police Commissioner Ravinderkumar Singhal, who successfully completed this difficult 'Ironman Triathlon', in France on Sunday. #NashikPolice congratulate Respected Dr. Ravinder Singal sir #CommissionerofPolice, #Nashik on becoming the #IronMan at #France #Triathlon@ravindersingal @IGPNashikRange @IPS_Association @SpRural @NashikNews @dionashik @CollectorNashik @Dev_Fadnavis @CMOMaharashtra @deshdoot pic.twitter.com/IcGQuEiien — Nashik City Police (@nashikpolice) August 27, 2018 For those who don't know about this event, it includes non-stop cycling for 180 km, followed by swimming for 4 km and 42-km marathon and one has to finish this race under 17 hours. Reportedly, Singhal's training Dr. Mustafa Topiwala said that he finished the triathlon in 15 hours and 13 minutes. © Ironman triathlon Singhal, who is from the Maharashtra-cadre, underwent extensive training before heading to France to participate in what is said to be the world's toughest competition. Can we say, that with this achievement, he has surpassed Milind Soman's 2015 record? Milind Soman completed the race in 15 hours and 19 minutes. We are really proud of you, Sir. Well done!

  14. Internet and the social media have brought people closer than ever, so much so, that we can now legit say "the world is so small". Now, it takes us just a single click to connect with people living miles away from us. Thanks to social media, now we can even comment and like the posts shared by our favourite celebrities. Every time a celebrity endorses something on social media, we instantly like and tag our friends asking them to try it out. Can you guess how much they earn for posting one sponsored post? Someone made the efforts of calculating it and the numbers will make all of us feel really poor. © Instagram In this 'rich' list, that includes names like Kylie Jenner, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Floyd Mayweather and Cristiano Ronaldo, Indian skipper Virat Kohli too has found his name in the 17th spot. HopperHQ, an Instagram scheduling tool, has compiled a list that I would like to call 'Rich Celebrities Of Instagram' - a list that mentions how much each celebrity earns per sponsored post. The list is calculated using the number of followers, per post engagement and frequency of posts. © HopperHQ Virat Kohli, who is one of the most celebrated sportspersons in the world, reportedly earns nearly $120,000 (Rs. 82,50,600 approx) with a single post. Surprisingly, Kohli who has 23.2 million followers earns more than Stephen Curry and Floyd Mayweather who are at the 18th and 19th spot respectively. © HopperHQ Kylie Jenner tops this list and is said to charge as much as $1 million for a single post. Selena Gomez and Cristiano Ronaldo are at the 2nd and 3rd spot with $800,000 and $750,000 respectively.
