Pooja Dhanda Fails to Make Impact

asian-games-2018

After losing the Bronze Medal match against Altantsetsegiin Battsetseg at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta – Pooja Dhanda has again missed a chance to show to the world that she has all the skills to do anything in the brick-and-mortar world of wrestling. The 24-year-old was so confident of winning a medal for India at Asian Games but failed to deliver in the end.

There is no doubt that the stage of Asiad Games is the best as far as showing your worth for the Olympic Games. However, it doesn’t mean displeasing at 2018 Asian Games will be the end of Pooja’s tenure. Because following the game of wrestling fewer times, only some handful of people know how good Pooja is.

2018 PWL – The Birthplace

Before the Pro Wrestling League season three, which happened in the month of January this year, no many had seen the girl from Haryana. However, after beating the stars like Marwa Amri, Odunayo Adekuoroye, and Helen Maroulis – the 24-year-old made it too clear that she is the one to look for. NCR Punjab Royals player became the poster girl. Many were expecting Pooja to win the Gold Medal at the 2018 CWG and 18th Asian Games in Jakarta. While in Australia, Pooja managed to win a Silver after losing the match against Odunayo Adekuoroye. On the other hand, she failed to win any medal for India at Asian Games. Maybe in the coming PWL season, Dhanda can knock over every blade of grass to regain her full power and strength in order to conquer at the Olympics and Asiad Games. The 2018 Asian Games didn’t flow like a river. Still, It doesn’t mean that this is the end.

Improvement Pooja Requires 

At the one end, the format of PWL suites the style of Pooja fantastically well because of playing one bout on a day. At the other end, every other major competition demands five to six bouts in order to win a medal. Like the fans have just seen at the 18th Asian Games in Jakarta. Taking the reference from the world’s richest professional grappling league, it is more than clear that when it comes to playing long; this Indian star fails to win the bouts. In the beginning, Pooja did well for India at Asian Games but failed to win the following bouts afterward.

More Practice

Every athlete wants to become the will of the wisps and to reach that level; practice becomes the key to success. The Haryanvi girl should remember what happened to her at 2018 Asian Games to make her stamina much better than one could ever imagine. Not winning a medal once doesn’t mean that it will never come. The age is with her, and she can win the Gold Medal for India at the 2022 Asiad Games, which will happen in Hangzhou, China. At the age bright of 28, the grappler from Budana can grow the chances of India at Asian Games. The 18th Asian Games in Jakarta is showing the development and power of India. Adding others, who failed, will surely increase the value of a nation.

Olympics – Hard challenge

Facing Kaori Icho from Japan, Valeria Koblova from Russia and Marwa Amri from the United States of America will be as hard as climbing Mount Everest for the Indian grappler as they are the top-top nemesis in the weight category of Pooja (58kg). The challenge there will become too hard to adjust for her if she denies learning from her happened crashes. Other than Pooja, the 18th Asian Games in Jakarta became a fantastic show form some Indian wrestlers. However, the show remained lackluster for Sakshi Malik. The 2016 Olympic Bronze Medalist Sakshi Malik also failed to win her Bronze Medal match at the 2018 Asian Games. Before coming to Indonesia, Sakshi had managed to win a Bronze at the 2018 CWG but failed to repeat the story for India at 2018 Asian Games. Vinesh Phogat and Bajrang Punia, on the other hand, made the country’s tricolor sky high. What makes the thing even better was Vinesh’s performance, as she became the first Indian woman wrestler to win a Gold Medal at the Asiad Games Pooja Dhanda can do in the coming future what Vinesh and Bajrang have already done for India at Asian Games.

Alabama Based Photographer Heather Mitchell’s Powerful Photo Shoot of Her Daughter As Athletes and Princess Goes Viral on Social Media

Little girls are given one of the two labels since from their childhood after their birth either girly or tomboy. It is something Alabama-based photographer Heather Mitchell saw happening to her own eight-year-old daughter, Paislee, at softball practice.

Mitchell said, one of the moms told me (my daughter) was not athletic-that she was a girly girl, responding to this, Mitchell said.  “I couldn’t sleep that whole night. All I could think was, ‘Why does she have to choose?’” She felt the same about her other 15-year-old daughter, Ivy.

Heather Mitchell recalls playing sports in her school in her childhood and wearing makeup to all her games which she used to play.

She firmly believes that “our daughters do not have to choose” what they are and what they want to be. This is what inspired this mom to create an empowering photo shoot featuring girls as both, athletes and princess at the same time.

She started taking photographs of her fierce-looking daughter, Paislee who wore a princess dress and a beautiful tiara during her photo shoot while posing with sports gear.

She also shared them on her Facebook account, where she has been flooded with the requests of the same photo shoots by the other parents for their daughters.

The photo shoots taken by her sold-out incredibly quickly and she also has promised that more photo shoots will be available soon with more creative concepts.

The very talented photographer has shared all the beautiful photos she has taken so far of her daughter in a Facebook post, writing, “Because you can do it all.”

And Heather is proud of her work what she has done so far but she said that she has never imagined that this kind of response she will receive from her fans after doing this photo shoot.

Most of her fans appreciated the work done by her. She has got more than thousand of likes, shares and comment on her Facebook post she has created along with a kind message, “girls can be and do whatever and however many things they want.”

 “I hope that every little girl that sees this series can see that there is no box, “Whatever their dreams are, they can achieve them.”

Heather

She has given this message to every little girl out there! Paislee and Ivy are literally so lucky to have a mom like her who always tries her best to bring the best for their daughters.

After seeing her talented work, we can’t wait much for her next photo shoot. This is truly very empowering and inspiring for other moms and their little daughters.

Indian Cricket Team for World Cup 2019

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) which is India’s cricketing body has recently introduced a 15 man squad for the ICC World Cup 2019 which will be organised in England and Wales from 30th May till the middle of July.

The ICC Squad is led by none other than Virat Kohli who will be leading the team and MS Dhoni will be keeping wickets as usual. While, Dinesh Karthik has taken the second spot for the wicketkeeper and unfortunately, Rishabh Pant hasn’t made to the list this time.

The BCCI has selected batsmen KL Rahul who is selected on the basis of some of his good domestic and international performances.

Though, Shankar’s inclusion is still surprising to most of us. Most of them were expecting Rishabh Pant to be selected in the final list, chief selector MSK Prasad has defended the decision by saying “Definitely a case where we debated in length. We all were in unison that either Pant or DK will come in only when Mahi is injured.

Indian Cricket Team for World Cup 2019:

In an important game, wicket keeping is also important. That’s the reason we went with Dinesh Kartik”.

The chief selector, MSK Prasad has further added that KL Rahul will be the reserve opener and will play in the middle order depending on what the team management deems fit to be.

There was some confusion going on between the board for making the final selection of batting spot. Now they have selected Vijay Shankar for this role.

They have told that they have tried on a few people at No. 4, we gave some chances to Rayudu also but what Vijay Shankar brings is three-dimensional. We are expecting him to see at no. 4 to begin with, told by MSK Prasad at the time of press briefing.

India will begin with its World Cup 2019 campaign on June 6, 2019, where they will be playing against South Africa at The Rose Bowl in Southampton.

While India VS Pakistan encounter is scheduled for June 16 at the Old Trafford in Manchester.

Have a look at Full Squad: Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Vijay Shankar, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Shami.

Might be so many girls must be feeling jealous of her as she has got one of the best and the coolest husband that one can ever have. Undoubtedly, Sakshi Dhoni and MS Dhoni make a gorgeous couple together or you can say the best or cute couple.

We wanted to tell you something more about their cuteness together which recently went viral on social media.

They both are giving us some major couple goals when we caught them sleeping together by sharing a single trolley bag as a pillow on Chennai Airport. Let’s have a look at some more cute things of the couple together:

We all are familiar with their epic love story and how Dhoni had struggled a lot to woo Sakshi to make his place in her heart. Their awesome love story makes us believe in the magic of love all over again.

A post shared by M S Dhoni (@mahi7781) on

On April 10, 2019, Dhoni has shared a picture with Sakshi on his official Instagram handle, wherein, we can see that they both are sleeping together on the floor of Chennai’s airport.

He captioned their cute picture as, “After getting used to IPL timing this is what happens if u have a morning flight.”

In an interview, Dhoni had talked about his wife, Sakshi and has shared that “She is the only one that provides me with the spark I might sometimes need. She is the person to whom I have a reference. In person, she is both loving and inspirational at the same time.

Sometimes she travels with me. One day, we both will see the sights together and then she says that can she move on the number second please on his priority list? But for the moment, I am here to play cricket. I have been giving this honour to play for my beloved country India so I want to see it through.’’

Well, they both never fail to give us major couple goals. They also have a cute daughter named, Ziva who seems to extremely talented just like his father and if we talk about this cute incident.

We can say that they are so down to earth as they did not feel humiliated by what they did as normal people do on airport or railway station. Hats off Dhoni Sir and Sakshi! God Bless You Both Always!
