In both the first and second matches that served as qualifiers for Olympic 2020, Harmanpreet made critical contributions to help India punch their tickets for the Games. But just how did Harmanpreet get hooked on the sport?

Farming traction

Born on January 6, 1996, on the outskirts of Amritsar, Punjab, farmer’s son Harmanpreet was enamored by the big wheels of the farm tractor. Seeing his enthusiasm, his father permitted him to drive the vehicle.

It was this endeavor, where Harmanpreet would frequently beat up his shoulders and arms wrestling with the tractor’s unwieldy stick shift, that the stalwart hockey player credits as having imbued in him the ability to carry out his potent drag-flicks.

Steered by the hands of fate

An interest in hockey that he cultivated since childhood led Harmanpreet to join the Surjit Hockey Academy in Jalandhar at the age of 15 with the hopes of becoming a forward.

However, during his debut at the 2014 Sultan Johor Cup in Malaysia, his skill as a defender shone brighter instead. The then 18-year-old Harmanpreet sent in an incredible nine goals during the match and all of them from penalty corners. He would change the path of his low and powerful shots at the last second to keep the goalkeeper flummoxed.

Harmanpreet enjoyed further success in Malaysia the following year, clinching the gold medal at the 2015 Men’s Hockey Junior Asia Cup by being the top scorer of the competition with 14 goals.

Olympic foray and a bunch of other firsts

2016 was a year that saw Harmanpreet begin a streak that has, to date, seen him score 56 goals in 101 appearances, and consequently, win plenty across the board. First, there was a bronze medal at the 2016 Men’s Hockey Champions Trophy in London, where he was also named the Young Player of the Tournament.

After that, it was on to Rio for the 2016 Summer Olympics, where Harmanpreet became one of the youngest hockey players to represent India, before capping off the year with a gold medal in the 2016 Men’s Hockey Junior World Cup held in Lucknow and bronze in the 2016–17 Men’s FIH Hockey World League season.

2017 saw Harmanpreet maintain his sharp form, emerging as the top scorer, with seven goals, in the tenth edition of the Men’s Hockey Asia Cup after India defeated Malaysia 2-1 in the final to win their third title.

In 2018, at the final running of the Men’s Hockey Champions Trophy, before it got replaced by the Hockey Pro League the following year, Harmanpreet Singh and the India team had to settle for silver after they narrowly lost out to Australia on penalties.

Tokyo Olympic preparations

Heading into the Tokyo Olympic, the 23-year-old is shaping up well for the challenge that lies ahead of him in the New Year. While the year has gone by saw the ace drag-flicker take his game a notch higher and test the best in the business, he will know that the road ahead is set to be more daunting if he has to fulfill the dream to handing India another Olympic medal in a discipline that they once dominated.

The Indian team will be next seen in action on January 18-19, when India take on the Netherlands in their opening FIH Pro League tie in Bhubaneshwar.

The International Canoe Federation (ICF) has told the competitor it needs more opportunity to settle on a choice in regards to her doping infringement a year ago. Ladies’ dash kayak makes its Olympic 2020 presentation in Tokyo.

Vincent Lapointe is a gold-decoration contender having won a joined 11 world titles in C-1 and C-2 in her vocation. The 27-year-old from Trois-Rivieres, Que., had a meeting with the ICF on Dec. 9. She remains temporarily suspended for having follow measures of Ligandrol in an out-of-rivalry doping test led July 29.

Ligandrol used to treat conditions, for example, muscle squandering and osteoporosis is on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s rundown of restricted substances since it has an anabolic steroids impact. Her legal counselor Adam Klevinas has fought the Ligandrol could have originated from polluted enhancements. The canoeist has said she gets her items from the National Team Training Center.

While Vincent Lapointe is temporarily suspended, she can prepare without anyone else and expects to go to Florida to do as such. I am surely frustrated that we haven’t got an official conclusion at this point, as I had trusted would be the situation, Vincent Lapointe said Wednesday in an announcement discharged by her specialist.

In any case, while I sit tight for an official conclusion, there are under 200 days before the Tokyo Olympic start and I have to get back on the water at the earliest opportunity with the goal that I can prepare as hard as I can in quest for my objective of winning a gold decoration in August.

“Her legal advisor anticipates a choice from the ICF in about fourteen days. This further postponement ought not at all be considered as a sign that the result will be troublesome for Laurence, Klevinas said.”

We stay sure that, when the ICF renders its choice, Laurence’s name will be cleared and that she will have the option to put this issue behind her as she seeks after her definitive target — winning Olympic gold in Tokyo Olympic this mid-year.

Under ICF rules, the doping control board had 30 days from the date of the meeting to render a choice. Because of the multifaceted nature of Laurence’s case, just as different issues that the ICF has suddenly needed to manage, for example, WADA’s suspension of Russia and the suggestions this has on Olympic 2020 capability, we comprehend that extra time will be required for the ICF to render a last, contemplated choice, Klevinas said.

Vincent Lapointe, Klevinas and Olympic Canoe Canada won’t remark further on the issue until the ICF declares its choice, the announcement said. The canoeist isn’t the main Canadian competitor fighting a doping infringement in front of the Tokyo Olympic Games.

Olympic Eventing: Swiss Land ‘Final’ Tokyo Slot, But Team Chances Still Out There

Switzerland claimed the last Olympic team place for Olympic 2020 at the FEI Eventing Nations Cup final at Boekelo in the Netherlands on October 13th. Their squad has been coached since the winter by Andrew Nicholson and it certainly shows. They finished the best of the teams in the overall Nations Cup rankings not already bound for Tokyo Olympic.

Olympic fans from all over the world are invited to book Olympic 2020 tickets from our online platforms for Olympic Tickets. Olympic Eventing fans can book Olympic Eventing Tickets from our ticketing marketplace exclusively on discounted prices.

The Tokyo factor added an extra frisson to Boekelo’s traditionally lively end-of-season party. But Boekelo might not quite be the Tokyo last-chance, because “qualification” has a strange interpretation in equestrianism. You can be qualified AND ineligible simultaneously.

Despite all the format manipulation aimed at admitting new countries, Olympic hopefuls still have to meet the Minimum Eligibility Requirement (MER) before occupying the place they have supposedly clinched. And the MER deadline for the team contest – a minimum of three riders of prescribed competence – is approaching like an express train: December 31st.

For newbies China and Thailand, it’s a case of so near and yet so far! Those two countries won their region’s quota place at a special competition in Saumur, France in May, amid much fanfare from the FEI. But the competition was staged at the old two-star/new three-star level. Rather less public attention was drawn to enormous “ask” of now mastering the next level up in a matter of months: the MER requires one completion including a cross-country clear, at the new five-star long format, or two at the new four-star, a long and a short.

While I may have missed something on the FEI database, it looks like two Chinese eventers have obtained the MER so far, the experienced Alex Hua Tian who ran as an individual at Beijing 2008, and Liang Ryuji. Thailand has just one, Weerapat Pitakanonda – both he and Liang secured their MERs in under five weeks at their first four-star attempts in Europe this summer and, it has to be said, did so fairly comfortably. China has a further three rider’s half-way there with four-star short qualifications, and Thailand one.

There are 13 remaining opportunities to obtain Olympic MERs worldwide, largely at events in the Americas and Antipodes. Riders are now prohibited from chasing MERs within 24 days of starting a “Long” CCI cross-country or within 10 days of a “Short.” That is a new stipulation, preventing horses being over-run at last-minute competitions which have had a strange way of appearing in the calendar before previous Games.

But can China and Thailand, in all seriousness, achieve this? And if so, given the precarious nature of Eventing, can they feasibly keep four horses fit and well to start in Tokyo Olympic from such a minute pool of participants? China has invested all its effort in the pre-selected six based in Europe this year.

So at least one team place is likely to be back in the pot soon. Who benefits will be decided by the special Olympic rankings table – most likely northern European. The FEI will reallocate if needed by February 17th. Canada is maybe just a notch too far down this list. However, the top two competitors from the Group D Olympic Eventing ranking list will be invited to compete. The list is currently topped by Karl Slezak and Colleen Loach, but Holy Jacks-Smither is on her way to Les Etoiles de Pau CCI5*-L in hopes of improving her ranking.

I chatted about this with Alex Hua Tian, who seems pretty sanguine about China’s prospects for Olympic 2020 and looks at the long-term. The mere possibility of a team presence has, he says, already piqued interest at the national level, and if they don’t make Tokyo Olympic, the European experience has stood China’s embryo team in good stead for a crack at Paris 2024. He also reminded me that it took Japan (third in the Boekelo Nations Cup final) two Olympic cycles to develop the strength and depth to be competitive in time for Olympic 2020. Given the chance, other non-traditional nations can catch up quickly and see off some of the well-aired concerns about the dilution of quality.

Meanwhile, Boekelo’s customized version of the Olympic three riders/no drop-score system was unexpectedly entertaining. At least it seemed so to me compared with last year’s trials of the new Olympic 2020 format at Mill street (Ireland) and Strzegom (Poland;) they were so bewildering I thought my head would fall off.

The Boekelo teams all seemed determined to complete their original trio. But I still harbor fears that someone who has been a spectator for half the competition will end up mounting the team podium next year. We saw how real that possibility could be at Boekelo when New Zealand finished fourth out of 12 good squads, despite calling up their substitute after the dressage, having accepted 20 extra penalty points.

Jennie, of course, she is still shown as a non-completion on the individuals’ scoreboard, just the kind of contradiction that will make casual observers glaze over when watching Tokyo Olympic on TV. Diehard fans have been digesting the substitution formula for months, but still probably watched Boekelo with one eye on the “bluffers guides” thoughtfully published by Horse & Hound and Eventing Nation.

Even the FEI’s own press release about Boekelo says the scoring caused a lot of head-scratching! The Boekelo commentators certainly had difficulty trying to distill it to a few words – good luck explaining it on Twitter next year!

“This one a hard eight months ahead for us. We all famine to be on that plane to Tokyo Olympic, so rivalry and training are successful to be even more significant and harder than ever,” she said.

There’s going to be competition for those 16 places. We’ve got a different squad completely so our aims are based on us not looking back. We do not have any pressure just since we are the ruling champions. Nonetheless, I think all of us will want a gold medal so I think that will be our goal. I think to go into Rio people would have written us off and I think if probably if people were looking at it now they would think the same.

“Every single one of us in our squad knows we have so much more to give and over the next eight months we will try and develop that and there will certainly be an accidental of us receiving gold at Tokyo Olympic.”

Olympic Hockey Tickets |Olympic 2020 Tickets | Olympic Tickets | Olympic Packages| Tokyo Olympic Tickets

Pearne-Webb and her side boasted a 3-0 lead from the first leg and pressed home their advantage, with Tess Howard getting the first goal of the second game within just four minutes. Rio hero Laura Unsworth doubled the advantage before Chile pulled a goal back, but it didn’t stop Mark Hager’s side from booking their place in Japan.

They’ll be joined by Danny Kerry and the men’s squad, who overcame Malaysia 9-3 on aggregate after winning the second game 5-2. Alan Forsyth’s hat-trick and a double from Sam Ward took them over the line – 31 years on from the Olympic gold-medal winning performance of Seoul 1988.

“There was a lot of pressure on me – all over social media I was being told I was on 99 goals, so it was hard,” Forsyth told BBC Sport.

“My mum was here on Saturday so I tried to get it done while she was here, but we got the win, that’s what matters. I don’t want to look back and be disappointed but I use not being selected for Rio [as motivation] every day – I missed one Olympics and I don’t want to miss another. I know we’ve qualified but I’ve got a lot of work to do to make sure I’m in the team for Olympic 2020.”

Have a layover at Tokyo’s Haneda airport? Here’s how to spend it

It may seem unnecessarily early to start planning your trip to the Games, but bulk bookings like these – along with recent restrictions on Airbnb listings – mean accommodation options during July and August 2020 could soon become limited, and those looking for a good deal should act fast. Here are what tourists visiting the Japanese capital during the Olympics 2020 need to know.

Do not presume you can rely on Airbnb 

On June 1 this year, the Japanese government made an amendment to the Japanese Hotels and Inns Act, which required Airbnb owners to register their listing by June 15. Those without a valid license number by the cut-off date had their rental status revoked.

The rules, which limit owners from renting out their properties for 180 days a year, have been criticized by some as restrictive and could cause a shortage of accommodation during the Games.

“I am not surprised the Japanese government cracked down on Airbnb,” says Victoria Vlissides, the travel editor in chief of GaijinPot, one of Japan’s biggest English-language publications. “I believe they want to protect the traditional hotels over Airbnb.

On the bright side, this could mean that there are more high-quality Airbnb locations after the dust settles because hosts now have to work harder just to have a listing.

Higher-quality rental rooms would be welcome, but some wonder whether it is worth restricting travelers’ choices to bring them about.

“Families, especially with smaller children or those with elderly members with mobility issues appreciate the refuge that a quiet, spacious flat provides,” says Greg Lane, co-founder of online travel guide Tokyo Cheapo.

The cost and experience of renting two or three small hotel rooms are qualitatively inferior to Airbnb – to the extent that these groups considering a holiday to Japan will think twice.

Inner-city apartment hotels such as the Citadines in Shinjuku or Hotel MyStays Hamamatsucho, east of Roppongi, offer families self-service alternatives.

Keep an eye on hotel announcements

According to the Japan National Tourist Organization, 2017 saw the country welcomes a total of 28.7 million visitors, 19 percent more than the previous year. In the months between January and May this year alone, the country reported 13.1 million visitors, just 300,000 shies of the total number of visitors in 2014.

The country has doubled its overseas visitor target number for 2020 to 40 million and – expecting it to continue to rise after the Olympics – set a target of 60 million by 2030.

Tokyo is still building the infrastructure needed to ensure that the city can withstand its biggest ever influx of international tourists. Even so, there are question marks over its capacity to accommodate Olympic 2020 fans.

By way of the present, certainly not, says Alexandra Homma, editor of popular lifestyle and travel site Savvy Tokyo. There is a need to increase everything more hotels, wider trains, more seats and have more space for people to move around.

Lane thinks the city is on the right track, however. “Building the hotel room inventory to replace the inventory lost with the Airbnb crackdown is challenging, but there is currently a huge hotel construction boom.”

Book as soon as you can

Exactly how far ahead you should book depends on which sports you go to see, says June Kawahara, a foreign press coordinator, and journalist for local newspaper Sankei Shimbun. In some cases, this should be over a year in advance, as some of the games are going to be held in Tokyo suburbs, where unfortunately there are not enough hotels.

“If you think you are booking early enough, you aren’t,” says Vlissides. “Tokyo is notorious for having most, if not all, of its reasonable accommodation, booked up months in advance.”

This is especially so if it coincides with a Japanese holiday or event, she says. You need to be aware of this and book earlier than you usually would if you want to have optimal choices for price or accommodation.

Be prepared to pay full price

Higher demand for rooms means you are less likely to find discounted rates. “If you find anything under US$300 per night, you’ll be doing well,” says Lane.

If you do have the option, go for somewhere with a little bit more space or a place that has a nice lounge. The summer heat in Tokyo can be oppressive, so you’ll probably need at least a small relaxing timeout each day.

Those wanting to save money can look beyond traditional hotels. “Hostels in Japan are a definite bright spot – especially the newly constructed ones,” says Lane.

“Places like Kaisu in Akasaka offer an affordable place to sleep, but everything about them is quality. They have high design standards, knowledgeable staff and they consider the social needs of young foreign travelers rather than just providing a sleep capsule.”

Location is key, so do your homework

“When you stay in the center of Tokyo, you have to think carefully about how far your hotel is from the stadium,” says Kawahara.

While staying close to the Olympic 2020 grounds is the most convenient option, given the city’s efficient transport network anywhere within 20 kilometers of the inner city neighborhoods will be easy to access. Kawahara recommends the upscale shopping areas of Ginza, Yaesu, and Kyobashi.

“Foreign travelers have a choice both of ‘cheap and clean’ class and luxury class here,” she says.

Also, English- and some Asian-language staff are available at almost all the hotels in these areas. Shibuya, Shinjuku, Akasaka, and Roppongi are also foreigner-friendly and are well-positioned in relation to many of the Olympic 2020 venues.

“If you can, ask a local to give you tips before booking,” says Homma.

For example, a lot of people book hotels in the Kabukicho area thinking it’s Shinjuku, but it’s a slightly different Shinjuku. A bit of area knowledge is a must. If you do not have a local contact, you can at least research the area and check its position on a map.
