good on that event” Locklear has dealt with back injuries in recent years that have limited her focus to the uneven bars and the beam That leaves an opening for Kocian to show the selection committee that she can compete in all four events which could give her an edge since she is prepared to act as a backup if any of her team mates in Rio get hurt “Having these extra events is probably helping my case to make that Olympic team” said Kocian speaking after the competition on Friday “That’s why I’ve been working really hard not just on bars and beam but also on the floor and vault to have that all around score in case Team USA needs it “After (US) championships everyone thought I was a specialist but then I finished fifth overall I think that helps my case for the selection committee” Kocian finished sixth on the beam on Friday beating Locklear who competed on just two apparatus and was 13th Kocian played down the rivalry with Locklear saying she is trying to keep her focus on the beam and floor exercise “Some fans think we are such big competitors or that we hate each other but we definitely cheer on each other” she said Karolyi the US women’s team program director will ultimately have the final say She said on Thursday that “both of them are extremely good bar workers” with Kocian choosing routines with a higher degree of difficulty than Locklear who has better execution scores With Kocian showing she can deliver more than just a flawless bar routine she may have a compelling case to end up in Rio next month “So they are pretty much neck-in-neck” Karolyi said “The decision maker will probably be who functions better under pressure and who gives something else to the team beside a bar routine” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App

Bernie Ecclestone has been appointed as ‘Emeritus Chairman’ – a position without a clearly defined role (Source: AP) Top News Formula One’s new owners Liberty Media may have made a mistake in ousting commercial supremo Bernie Ecclestone immediately after completing their takeover of the sport according to former FIA president Max Mosley Ecclestone 86 was replaced by American Chase Carey on Jan 23 as chief executive of Formula One and appointed ‘Emeritus Chairman’ – a position without a clearly defined role for the Briton Liberty have however said they hope Ecclestone will continue to offer advice to the board “If it had been me in the case of Liberty I’d have kept Bernie on to do the things that he’s superbly good at – such as dealing with the promoters and the organisers and all that side of it” Mosley told Reuters The Briton a close ally of Ecclestone while running the governing body said Liberty could have concentrated on “doing the things that up to now have not been done” in Formula One such as virtual reality and digital technology “But of course they bought a business and are fully entitled to come in and think they can run the whole business better and we’ll just have to see what happens” added the 76-year-old speaking at F1’s annual Zoom charity auction on Friday night Mosley who stood down as president of the International Automobile Federation in 2009 cautioned against too much rapid change in the sport Liberty have spoken about increasing the number of grands prix particularly in the Americas changing the weekend format and giving every round of the championship the ‘Super Bowl’ treatment Carey who has appointed former ESPN executive Sean Bratches to run the commercial side with former Mercedes principal Ross Brawn overseeing motorsport matters has spoken of F1 being like ’21 Super Bowls’ in a season “You’ve always got to be careful if it ain’t broke don’t fix it But they are fully aware of that” said Mosley “They (Liberty) are serious business people Whether they can deal with everything better than they could have dealt with it using Bernie for the things he’s good at and then doing the things that they know about is an open question We shall see” FEW BUMPS Mosley agreed that Liberty had plenty on their plate in the coming months and might find a few bumps in the road ahead despite their undoubted expertise “It always looks easy from the outside” he warned “It’s like if I think I could go and fix horse racing But if you actually go and try and do it you find there are a whole mass of problems you never even knew about But maybe they will be very successful and get the job done” With Super Bowl 51 coming up in Houston on Sunday Mosley was also wary of comparisons between how the National Football League spectacular is presented over the course of a week and grand prix racing “I think that’s easy to say it’s not quite clear to me what that means” he said of the suggestion that every race could be treated like a Super Bowl with more razzamatazz and events leading up to it “But the Super Bowl…is that so wonderful I don’t want to be unkind but Americans always think they can do everything better

which the 90 persons including nine women were given “diksha” following which all present at the programme were showered with rose petals amid Buddhist prayers Following the conversion they gave a short speech in which they cited “inequality and unscientific and superstitious rituals” in Hinduism and their liking for Dr Ambedkar’s ideals as the reasons for conversion “I believe in equality for all and do not find it in Hinduism And I believe in the ideals of Dr Ambedkar who himself converted to Buddhism while shedding Hinduism So following in his footsteps we have adopted Buddhism today”

Makwana (28) another convert says “I have learnt a lot from Buddhism It’s a religion full of equality which is in stark contrast to Hinduism Being a Dalit wherever you go people ask for your caste and then discriminate against you In Buddhism there is no such hierarchy all are equals” “So it is better to follow a religion which practises equality than the one in which one gets humiliated on caste lines” adds Jatin who works as a lab assistant at a pathology laboratory in Dholka Nikita Parmar (26) from Rasikpura village of Ahmedabad is a housewife She embraced Buddhism along with her husband Arvind Nikita converted because she did not like “blindly following Hindu rituals” She said “Also these rituals have given birth to a lot of superstitions which are disgusting I don’t want to be a part of that religion” Secretary of Gujarat Buddhist Academy Ramesh Banker said “We organised this programme as these 90 persons wanted to embrace Buddhism Hinduism is full of superstitions where
