1000 gold medals all-time They in fact stand at 1020 currently Michael Phelps Katie Ledecky Simone Biles Ryan Murphy were the gold collectors it was the usual mother sports – athletics swimming and gymnastics that kept the country on track Boxing tennis wrestling golf though seemed to have chipped in with fewer than they normally would Great Britain:They’ve been the story of the Games – the impetus received from London seeming to have carried forward to the next Games as well with the unified islands notching up one medal (at the time of printing) more than London even – 66 The number of golds had dipped marginally though Cycling and rowing in all fetched a third of those medals prompting Gary Linekar to guffaw that them Brits were basically brilliant at “sitting on their arses” The serious numbers trotted out of course have been how GB spent 55 mill GBP on each medal and the lottery system clicked We like Linekar’s light take on it though China:The biggest non-story of the medal count There’s been speculation for a while now that China has been slashing budgets spent on elite athletes and broadbasing the funds across the general population worried about rising obesity in the country though details on this are sketchy At first glance the serious dips have happened in gymnastics (down from 12 to 2 total) and badminton (down from 8 to 3) The economic slowdown was expected to

continued on Saturday with the Croat showing the fighting qualities that have seen her overcome personal trauma financial constraints and injury on a long long road back to the top The 34-year-old who stunned third seed Agnieszka Radwanska in round two battled from a set down to end the dreams of Greek Maria Sakkari 3-6 6-2 6-3 to make the fourth round She will now play American qualifier Jennifer Brady who shocked 14th seed Elena Vesnina Croatia’s Mirjana Lucic-Baroni is having a fairytale run at the Australian Open Reuters It has been a memorable tournament so far for Lucic-Baroni who in 1997 made her US Open debut at just 15 and teamed with Martina Hingis to win the 1998 Australian Open women’s doubles In 1999 at 17 she went to the Wimbledon semi-finals where it took Steffi Graf to beat her But it all fell apart soon after as she was engulfed by heartbreaking personal issues In the background back then was tough demanding father Marinko who Lucic-Baroni later revealed dished out regular beatings — although he described them as "slaps" that were "best for the child" Eventually in desperation Mirjana her mother Andelka and four siblings fled their Croatia home in the dead of night for the sanctuary of the United States The drama however put the brakes on a journey which should have led to fame and fortune as financial problems forced her to put a career on a backburner Lucic-Baroni disappeared from professional tennis for most of the 2003-2010 period before slowly feeling her way back $55 a match She said it had been a rocky road back playing small events but she never gave up on her dream "I never thought about stopping but it was difficult It was a lot of tears a lot of disappointments It was really hard" she said of playing lower-level circuits "I think many would give up and I really take a lot of pride in that because it was really hard I didn’t get any wildcards I didn’t get any special treatment I really had to do it on my own and I had to fight so hard for it "I take a lot of pride in that and it takes a lot of character It takes a lot of hard work It takes a lot of mental strength "The fact that I was able to do that and be here today just kind of proves to myself who I am and what a fighter I am" She added that contrary to popular opinion a tennis player’s life was not all fame and fortune and could be a torturous slog to make a living "Whoever thinks that this is glamorous and all this prize money and all that should come have a chat with me" she said "It is not all it’s cracked up to be and it is — I mean it’s not so easy to get to this point for sure Challenger circuit is very difficult mentally "You don’t have ball boys ball girls You don’t have umpires Things are not as easy or as smooth as they are here as well organized You play for $55 a match so it’s difficult" Until this year she had never gone beyond the second round in Melbourne since her debut in 1998 setting the new record of a 19-year gap between wins at a

respective 2016 season Federer has not played since Wimbledon and Nadal wrapped up his season in October Djokovic had featured in the inaugural season for Dubai but had missed the 2015 edition "One of the Big Four is definitely coming We did not want to reveal all our cards today We will announce the name in the next 48 hours" Bhupathi told PTI confirming that a few big names will be missed There are murmurs that payment issues are plaguing the league but Bhupathi asserted that there was no truth in it "All the players we had last year are back We had a long list of players who wanted to come but unfortunately could not come because there were no spots Everything is good" Bhupathi said "That’s why they say don’t believe in everything you read" he added further The Indian team has shifted base to Hyderabad and Bhupathi said it was done to take the league to other parts of the country "There is no particular reason we did it there (Delhi) for two years the fans enjoyed world class tennis The concept was built about having one team for country Last year we did it in Kobe (in Japan) this year we are doing it in Tokyo The owners wanted an opportunity to move to a different city to see if they get good buzz" Bhuapthi said Asked if it’s a one-off season for Hyderabad Bhupathi said "It’s team owners’ decision We will see if it’s a sold out crowd there are a lot of factors we will see" Phillipines Mavericks are also not featuring in the 2016 season "The owners still own the team but there was some political instability there there were worries about players travelling there" Bhupathi clarified on absence of Mavericks India’s veteran star Leander Paes who played for Japan Warriors last year is also not there this season "The number of players changed since one team sat

another old crumbling mansion in Kolkata it is home to one of oldest film clubs in the country and definitely one of the most illustrious in the subcontinent — Calcutta Film Society was founded by Satyajit Ray and Chidananda Dasgupta in 1947 However the film club is on the verge of closing as it faces eviction from its current address on Chittaranjan Avenue for defaulting on rent With just 300 members each paying an annual fee of Rs 100 Calcutta Film Society is strapped for funds “The owners of the building Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) had rented out the room to us We paid Rs 1500 as rent but now they have hiked it to Rs 4500 We don’t have the money to pay that kind of rent” said Pradipta Sen working president of the society “It was one of the most celebrated film societies in the country It contributed a great deal in developing some sort of film culture in our country” said actor-director Aparna Sen whose father Chidananda Dasgupta was one of the founder members of the society In 1947 when the society was launched Satyajit Ray was a young aspiring filmmaker who supplied books and film magazines to the members Dasgupta who was later to become one of the most respected film critics in the country offered a room in his home for meetings Before the society was founded there was only one film club — the Mumbai Film Society It was however disbanded before the Calcutta Film Society was launched “This means the Calcutta Film Society is the oldest running film club in the country and we need to do all we can to preserve it” said filmmaker Goutam Ghose In 2011 Ghose along with Aparna Sen and directors Sandip Ray and Srijit Mukherji tried to revive the fortunes of the Calcutta Film Society “The fact that the society provided a common platform for film lovers to share their views was integral in shaping the film culture in the country Today people have ready access to films thanks to the Internet or DVDs but we need to watch films together if we want to foster a serious film culture… We felt that we needed to do something about it” said Ghose Now film shows are held every Saturday at the society some of which are attended by the luminaries of the Bengali film industry But the society has always been plagued by funding problems “The LIC has issued a showcause notice to us because we couldn’t pay the enhanced rent But we had a meeting with them and explained the problem It all depends on the LIC now if they disagree to make an exception for us we will have to shut down” said Pradipta Sen For all the latest Kolkata News
