Pakistan should never Accept the offer to play cricket series in India

ISLAMABAD (Championspk) Pakistani Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has on Monday said that Pakistan should never accept the offer to play cricket series in India. He said that it is impossible for Pakistan to keep singing the ballads of friendship despite continuous hate-mongering from the Indian side,

Talking informally to media at Punjab House in Islamabad, Chaudhry Nisar said that India’s treatment was unfair with former Foreign Minister Khurshid Mehmood Kasuri, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shehryar Khan, PCB Chief Executive Najam Sethi and revered singer Ghulam Ali. “Why was there no action against anyone for such behaviour with Pakistanis in India?” questioned Nisar.

IOC Executive Board takes action following WADA Independent Commission – provisionally suspends Mr. Lamine Diack

IOC Executive Board takes action following WADA Independent Commission – provisionally suspends Mr. Lamine Diack

Norway(Championspk)The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is closely monitoring the situation after the Independent Commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) released its report on 9 November. The IOC expects the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and WADA to consider all necessary action to be taken to protect the clean athletes and rebuild trust.

Even if it has not been directly addressed in the report, the IOC has already decided to take the following steps itself:

The IOC’s Executive Board decided this afternoon to confirm the proposal of the IOC Ethics Commission to provisionally suspend Mr. Lamine Diack, the former President of IAAF, from his honorary membership of the IOC.

As far as the Olympic Games may be concerned the IOC Executive Board decided:

The IOC has asked the IAAF to initiate disciplinary procedures against all athletes, coaches and officials who have participated in the Olympic Games and are accused of doping in the report of the Independent Commission. With its zero-tolerance policy against doping, following the conclusion of this procedure, the IOC will take all the necessary measures and sanctions with regard to the withdrawal and reallocation of medals and as the case may be exclusion of coaches and officials from future Olympic Games;

The IOC studied the functioning of the WADA accredited laboratory in Sochi during the Olympic Winter Games 2014 following the doubts expressed during the Independent Commission’s press conference. In this context the IOC relies on the then report of the WADA independent observer group which makes no mention of any such irregularity. Nor was any such irregularity reported by the international experts involved, nor found by the IOC itself. Therefore, the IOC has no reason to question the credibility of the results of the anti-doping tests carried out at the Olympic Winter Games 2014. However, the IOC retaining all the doping samples for ten years, will retest samples in an appropriate way should substantial doubts arise. In any case, the IOC may retest samples once new scientific techniques become available

Xi appeals for Sino-British football boost

Xi appeals for Sino-British football boost

Manchester( Championspk)President Xi Jinping called on Friday for China and Britain to strengthen co-operation on football as he ended his four-day state visit to the United Kingdom.

As the birthplace of modern football and boasting strong teams, Britain is the country China should learn from, Xi said.

He said both countries should bolster co-operation and exchanges in the sport to promote friendship between their two peoples.

Football is the sport that most people play in the world and it has an extensive influence and is welcomed deeply by people globally, the president said.

Xi, who is a football fan, made his appeal as he toured the City Football Academy in Manchester where he was presented with a football shirt by Manchester City players.

Accompanied by British Prime Minister David Cameron, he visited the state-of-the-art training facility that includes a 7,000-capacity stadium and 16 football fields. The academy is home to Manchester City Football Club and is the headquarters of its global football organisation.

The president and Cameron posed for a selfie with Sergio Aguero, City’s star Argentine striker. The photo went viral on the Internet.

Xi and Cameron were hosted by Manchester City Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak. They watched a training session and met players who helped build the city’s football tradition, including former Manchester United captain Gary Neville and ex-City stars Patrick Vieira and Mike Summerbee.

Xi and Cameron also toured the National Football Museum, which houses artifacts including a ball used in the final of the inaugural 1930 World Cup.

The museum presented a copy of the first competition rules for modern world football to Xi as a gift. In return, he presented a cooper statue featuring cuju, an ancient Chinese football game, to the museum and a cooper statue of a cuju doll to Manchester City.

Another highlight of the visit was the induction into the National Football Museum’s Hall of Fame of Chinese player Sun Jihai, who played 130 times for Manchester City between 2002 and 2008.

Sun, the first Chinese player to score in the English Premier League, was named City’s Ambassador to China last month.

“Xi’s visit to the City Football Academy is a great encouragement for the development of Chinese football,” Sun said, adding that training for young players is the most important task now in China.

With the ongoing football reforms in the country, Sun said he hopes the Chinese national team can make good progress.

Al Mubarak, the City chairman, said,” It was a wonderful moment for all concerned to see Sun Jihai’s contribution to both Manchester and English football recognised by the National Football Museum.

“Today is testament to the club’s strong existing links with China and to our ambitions for them to deepen and grow.”

Xi is scheduled to arrive in Beijing on Saturday.

IOC President Thomas Bach meets President of the Swiss Confederation, Didier Burkhalter

IOC President Thomas Bach meets President of the Swiss Confederation, Didier Burkhalter

Lausanne Switzerland(Championspk)The President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Thomas Bach, today welcomed the President of the Swiss Confederation, Didier Burkhalter, for a one-hour meeting at the IOC headquarters in Lausanne before inviting him to visit the newly renovated Olympic Museum.

The two leaders discussed a number of items of common interest, including the long ties between the Olympic Movement and Switzerland that have led many sports organisations to set up home in the country, and the continued presence of the IOC in Switzerland.

The leaders discussed the future of the Olympic Movement, and President Bach outlined the progress made on “Olympic Agenda 2020”, a strategic plan for the future which will be finalised by the end of the year. They also assessed the highly successful Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, with the Swiss President having just returned from meeting President Putin in Moscow, where he led the OSCE delegation.

“The ties between Switzerland and the IOC are based on great cooperation in the past. We feel at home here in Switzerland, and we certainly hope that it will be possible for this to continue, and this is a sentiment echoed by many of our partners from International Federations and other sports organisations who followed the IOC’s lead and set up their headquarters in Switzerland.”

Discussions also touched upon the celebrations surrounding the 100th anniversary of the IOC being headquartered in Lausanne which will be marked next year. Then-IOC President Pierre de Coubertin moved the IOC headquarters to Lausanne in 1915 in the midst of the First World War. In recognition of the long history that unites the IOC and Lausanne, the city received the title of Olympic Capital in 1993.

President’s Burkhalter’s delegation was composed of the head of the Directorate of Public International Law and Legal Advisor of the Swiss Foreign Ministry, Valentin Zellweger; the Director of Switzerland’s Federal Office for Sport, Matthias Remund; the Head of the President’s office, Damien Cottier; the Communications Chief, Jean-Marc Crevoisier; and the Head of Présence Suisse, Nicolas Bideau
