He however could not maintain his winning streak and lost to fellow teenager Christopher Yoo from New York. In the battle of generations, the Indian came up aces against the veteran Ivanchuk.

Magnus leads Arjun in finals of Julius Baer Cup

World champion Magnus Carlsen stayed on course to win the Julius Baer Generation Cup rapid online chess tournament after winning two and drawing one against India’s Grandmaster Arjun Erigaisi in the first set of four games here. The World No.1 from Norway now holds a 2.5-0.5 advantage over the teen Indian grandmaster and would need to secure a tie in the next set to be played late today to win the prestigious event. While it is a steep climb for Arjun from here it is not impossible for him as he needs to win the next four-set game to force a tie-breaker.
Carlsen began on a dominating note and won the first match in 40 moves followed by picking up a 29-move victory. Carlsen did not take much risk and settled for a draw to go into the final day of the tournament with the momentum on his side.
“I’m a bit disappointed with my play and with the result but it’s going to help me for sure so I take it as a positive thing. I have been telling myself not to think too much about the fact that I am playing against Magnus and just try to play as if it’s any other opponent,” Arjun was quoted. Earlier, the Indian had beaten Vietnam’s Liem Quang Le to qualify for the finals of the USD 150,000 tournament.

Eliud Kipchoge wins Berlin Marathon, sets new world record

Star Kenya marathoner Eliud Kipchoge won the Berlin Marathon with an astonishing time of 2:01.09 hours to set up a new world record here on Sunday.
Kipchoge bettered his own world record by 30 seconds that he set at the same event in 2018.
This was the 37-year-old celebrated long distance runners’ 15th career wins. In a two-decade-old career, the Kenyan is a two-time Olympic champion (2016& 2020). He has won 10 major marathons across the world as well as capturing the world championship in 2003.
On an overcast day, Kipchoge was in his elements from the word go and only few on the grid could match his intensity.
Ethiopia’s Andamlak Belihu stayed hot on his heels for a considerable amount of time but later buckled and fell behind as the Kenyan cruised his way to yet another sensational victory. Kipchoge had come agonisingly close in setting a new record at the Tokyo Marathon in March as well only to miss out on the mark by just a minute.
His compatriot Mark Korir finished second to register a one-two finish for Kenya, while Ethiopian Tadu Abate ended third.

Umar Kremlev to continue as chief of International Boxing Association

Russia’s Umar Kremlev will continue as the chief of the International Boxing Association after the delegates at its extraordinary meeting in Armenia decided against holding new elections.
Kremlev will hold on to his position for a four-year term.
Boris van der Vorst of Netherlands who was harbouring dreams of replacing Kremlev was in for a rude shock as 106 National Federations rejected the proposal election regarding fresh voting. Only 36 National Federations voted in favour of the move while four remained absent.
A total of 74.65% voted in the Russian’s favour while 25.35% aligned with the Dutch. Earlier Vorst had successfully challenged a decision of the Boxing Independent Integrity Unit to prevent him from running at the previous extraordinary congress in Istanbul at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
While the situation seems to be normal as of yet, it remains to be seen what would be the fate of boxing in Los Angeles Olympics 2028 as International Olympic Committee has warned IBA quite a few times in the past over the governance of the current regime including the integrity of the judges and financial sustainability of the organisation.
