Indian Athletes And 2016 Rio Olympics

There is good news for Indian athletes who will be participating in the 2016 Rio Olympics.  The ministry has decided to double the daily allowance of the national campers so that they can buy good quality dietary supplements. The ministry has also decided to increase the daily allowances of junior athletes to 75% of the amount that will be provided to senior athletes.

According to the ministry order, athletes that will be competing in power games under Category A that includes boxing, taekwondo, weight lifting and throw events will receive Rs700 per day as compared to the previous Rs320 allowance. Athletes under Category B that include sprinters and team events will get Rs400 daily while those qualifying under Category C that includes golf, shooting and archery will be entitled to Rs300 per day.

The ministry has also released a revised list of 14 branded and generic food supplements that will be procured by the Sport Authority of India (SAI). Athletes who prefer branded food supplements that are not available with SAI will have to approach the national federation to make them available. On the other hand, it is the job of SAI to procure the supplements from companies that have been empowered by the government and if they allow the federations to directly purchase food supplements, the ministry runs the risks of increased dope-related issues in the future.

Independent procurement of food supplements for athletes from different companies can be a rather tricky matter. Even if the ministry has made it mandatory that procurement of food supplements should only be made after getting a certificate for safety and WADA compliance, there is no 100% guarantee that supplements are banned substances. The federation might err on this subject because WADA will never accept a plea for a banned substance once it is found in testing. For the record, WADA has conducted random tests in 45 countries to ascertain the quality of food supplements.

After discussion about sports controversies, a better topic is best Indian restaurants Perth where you can enjoy the best Indian cuisine from the different regions. The menu is extensive and flavored with traditional Indian ingredients.

Will Red Bull Quit Formula One By The End Of The Season?

If they fail to find a competitive engine, Red Bull will pull out of F1 at the end of this season. Both Helmut Marko, the brand’s motorsport consultant and Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz have confirmed the team will split from Renault at the end of the season due to their frustration about the engines delivered by the French manufacturer. This will end the partnership with Renault a year early.

Last Friday evening, a round of rumors linked the Volkswagen Group with a takeover of the team but Red Bull has told Sky Sport F1 that there were no truth to the rumors and the speculations are wide off the mark.

With Mercedes Benz unwilling to supply a team that is challenging their dominance and Honda’s units performing a lot worse than Renault, Ferrari is the only option that is available to the Red Bulls for a short term basis. However, Marko told Sky Sports that they have decided that if there is no competitive engine they can use, they will leave Formula 1. When Marko was asked whether he plans to switch to Ferrari, he did not go into details because what he really wants is a competitive engine because at Monza, they were 2 seconds behind. He feels that it does not make sense competing if there is no power unit.

Marko also gave a firm indication that the Red Bull’s deal with Renault will be terminated a year early. Mateschitz also told an Austrian newspaper that the separation with Renault at the end of the season is a mutual agreement because there is no longer any sense to work together.

If Red Bull is going to withdraw from Formula 1 it would put the future of the two teams in doubt unless another investor is found. It would also cast doubt on the Austrian Grand Prix that is currently being promoted by Red Bull and held at their circuit Red Bull Ring.

However, according to Volkswagen, they could buy the team to be their engine providers for 2018. Any speculations are said to be inaccurate because a deal with Volkswagen won’t be done short term. There is also a long term agreement with Audi but there is no deal yet as of now.
