Yossi Benayoun’s second goal in as many games put QPR ahead at Loftus Road.He finished off a lovely team move that started with Joey Barton finding Niko Kranjcar on the left.The Croatian in turn threaded through a pass for Tom Carroll, whose pull-back was cleverly back-heeled by Clint Hill into the path of Benayoun, enabling him to score from close range.In-form Wigan responded strongly and R’s keeper Rob Green had to produce four saves to ensure his team led at the break.Green denied James Perch and Nick Powell before keeping out James McClean’s effort after the Wigan man had squirmed away from fellow Irishman Richard Dunne.McClean then saw another shot stopped by Green and it was soon Nedum Onuoha’s turn to save Rangers, the defender throwing himself into a challenge on James McArthur in the box that had to be perfectly timed, and was.At the other end, Kranjcar fired straight at keeper Ali Al-Habsi from 20 yards after being teed up by Bobby Zamora.Wigan remained a threat and McClean had another chance a minute before half-time but dragged his shot wide of the far post.QPR (4-4-1-1): Green; Hughes, Onuoha, Dunne, Hill, Benayoun, Carroll, Barton, Kranjcar; Morrison; Zamora.Subs: Murphy, Simpson, Keane, Yun, Henry, Hoilett, O’Neil.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
1 June 2015The 90th Comrades Marathon belonged to South Africa – and it was about time, too.Caroline Wostmann became the first South African female winner since Rae Bisschoff in 1998. Wostmann was also less than three minutes off the up-run record held by Russian veteran Elena Nugralieva. She is also the first South African woman to win the Two Oceans Marathon and Comrades in the same year.Only some 35 minutes earlier, Gift Kelehe had won gold in the men’s race, which meant that South Africa had a male and female winner for the first time since 1992. Kelehe’s older brother, Andrew Kelehe, won the race in 2001. Winners of the 90th Comrades Marathon: Gift Kelehe and Caroline Wostmann. (Image: @ComradesRace/Twitter.com)The Rustenburg-based policeman may have had a tough time preparing for the race with work hours providing a major obstacle to his training, but he was never short of confidence. And that confidence remained after the race.“History has been made today,” he said. “It was not over-confidence. But sometimes if you want something you must be confident and you must believe that it will happen. I had a belief that I could win this race today and it happened.”Kelehe had received three gold medals previously, but following his first win, he hoped that he could go on a run and dominate the next few years. “It was my wish and my aim to be the champion one of these days,” he said. “Next year I am coming back for [another] win.”In the Comrades, the annual ultra-marathon between Durban and Pietermaritzburg, gold medals are awarded to the first 10 male and female finishers. Wostmann, an accounting lecturer at Wits University, hoped that this win would bring about a renewed era of South African women succeeding at the Comrades. In recent years they had been spectators to the brilliance of Russian twins Elena and Olyesa Nurgalieva.“It shows that there definitely [has been] a big improvement in South African running,” she said. “We’ve got a lot of strong women. I do think that specifically with Nedbank, [which] has been helping us so much, I think we’ll be seeing a lot more South Africans in the top 10.“We have been working quite hard as South African women to try to improve our ultra- running and that’s definitely coming through now.”There was good news on the medical front, too, with only two serious cases of hyperthermia being reported by the end of the race day.Men’s top 101.

Union Minister Jitendra Singh on Thursday said days are not far off when it will be possible to unfurl the tricolour in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK). “I have faith that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the way New India’s caravan is progressing ahead, that day is not far off when it will be possible to unfurl that tricolour or ‘Nishan’ for which Shyama Prasad Mukherj sacrificed his life in Pakistan occupied Kashmir,” Mr. Singh said at an event to rename Chenani-Nashri Tunnel in Jammu & Kashmir.Mr. Singh, credited Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari for accepting the proposal of renaming the tunnel after Shyama Prasad Mukherjee without wasting time. In 2017, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had dedicated to the nation this 9 km-long tunnel that reduces the distance between Jammu and Srinagar by 31 km but due to “some compulsions” this could not be named after Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, he said. He further noted that 66 years ago on May 11, 1953, Mukherjee was arrested from Lakhanpur in an illegal manner without any FIR, chargesheet or warning and was taken to Srinagar through this Chenani-Nashri road. After Mukherjee’s death on June 23, 1953 his mother wrote to then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru to hold an enquiry into his death. “For some reasons then Prime Minister Nehru did not pay heed to that letter, no enquiry was done. It is a new era now. It was Nehru government then, today it is Modi government… That probe or lapse can not be compensated but this tribute for coming generation will preserve his heritage and memory. “The lapse on part of Nehru government has been atoned by Modi government,” he said. The decision to rename the tunnel comes over two months after abrogation of the provisions of Article 370. The ‘Chenani-Nashri Tunnel’ was built at the cost of ₹2,600 crore. The tunnel, bypassing snow-bound upper reaches, reduces the journey time by two hours and provide a safe, all-weather route to commuters travelling from Jammu and Udhampur to Ramban, Banihal and Srinagar. The key features of the tunnel are — it is a single-tube bi-directional tunnel, with a 9.35-metre carriageway, and a vertical clearance of 5 metres. There is also a parallel escape tunnel, with ‘Cross Passages’ connecting to the main tunnel at intervals of 300 metres. It also has smart features such as an integrated traffic control system; surveillance, ventilation and broadcast systems; fire fighting system; and SOS call-boxes at every 150 metres.
