(June 24) – A dramatic late-race move gave Thomas Radivoy his second CRSA IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car win of the season at Orange County Fair Speedway Saturday night.The main event was shortened from 20 laps to fifteen due the threat of rain in the area and challenger Bret Jaycox knew he had to make things happen quickly because of the race length.Jaycox used the outside starting lane to work through turn one and two to take the lead away from Radivoy early and dominate a majority of the event.The move of the race was seen when Radivoy and Jaycox were rolling out of turn four toward the white flag. Jaycox drifted a little high and lost just enough momentum for Radivoy to point his car underneath Jaycox and take command of the race lead during the final lap of the evening.The win was Radivoy’s CRSA third on the season and second at Middletown. Sydney Prince and Christian Rumsey snuck by Jaycox to finish second and third, respectively.The Super Gen Products/Champion Generators CRSA Sprint Tour heads back north for another doubleheader racing weekend.

The Los Angeles Olympics in 1984 was a heartbreaking affair for Indians. PT Usha, arguably the country’s greatest track and field athlete, came close to winning an elusive medal. She missed the bronze in the women’s 400m hurdles by 1/100th of a second.Ever since, India have been longing for a world class track and field athlete.

In fact, Neeraj became the only Indian athlete to hold a world record in track and field events at any age category.To put things into perspective, India have hardly had track and field athletes who were good enough to finish on the podium at the Olympic Games level. However, Neeraj’s throw in Poland would have fetched him a bronze at Rio Olympics and a gold at London Olympics.Keshorn Walcott, who won the bronze at the 2016 Games, finished with 85.38m. Walcott had taken the gold at London Olympics with a throw of 84.58m.Golden run for Neeraj in 2018Neeraj Chopra, whose induction to javelin happened by accident after he moved to Panipat in search of a gym, made sure he kept his hunger after creating history at the junior level.Neeraj focussed on consistency. His personal best remained his junior world record mark in the following year but Neeraj kept it hovering around the 85m mark.advertisementWith German great Uwe Hohn training him, Neeraj stepped up big time at the two major events in 2018 — Commonwealth Games and Asian Games. At the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Neeraj became the first Indian javelin thrower to win a gold when he came up with a throw of 86.48m. AP PhotoCut to August 2018, Neeraj Chopra showed the world he means business with gold medal-winning throw of 88.06m at Asian Games.

Olympic champion Thomas Rohler of Germany came up with an 85.76m effort in his final attempt to snatch the bronze away from the young Indian athlete.Neeraj not going to rush recovery for World ChampionshipsJust when things were looking good for Neeraj Chopra, the youngster suffered a shoulder injury earlier this year which was followed by a surgery in March.Neeraj Chopra, who has not participated in a competitive event since September 2018, now has to come up with a cautious approach and he knows it better than anyone else.Uwe Hohn had laid out plans for his talented ward. Chopra, who is ranked 10th in the world, needs an 85m throw to qualify for the Olympics. Throw 92m at September’s world championships and a 94m in Tokyo to finish on the podium at the Olympics.Neeraj isn’t willing to risk rushing back from the injury. The youngster, according to The Indian Express, doesn’t want to pick up another injury in a bid to be ready in time for the World Championships.The road ahead is looking tougher than before for Neeraj but the youngster seems to be clear with his plans.
