Navigating a tricky gorge, treading across a frozen river and setting foot on a sleepy town buried ten feet under snow- though that may sound straight out of a adventure classic, it is what the winter expedition undertaken by the city-based Science and Adventure Club proposes to do during its 16-day trek kicking off on Saturday.

A nine-member squad including four trekkers from Tiruchi would undertake The ‘Chadar trail' graded as an extreme trek due to the timing and terrain involved. The trekkers would traverse the Valley of Zanskar (Jammu and Kashmir) sheltered by the Great Himalayan Ranges in the South and the Ladakh and Eastern Karakoram Ranges in the north.

The expedition is made up of an eclectic set- ace mountaineer, novices, wildlife photographers and a medical practitioner. Members from Tiruchi include ace trekking couple Ramanan and Vrinda Ramanan, M.P.Saravanan, a doctor with knowledge of high altitude medicine and debutant Mahesh Kanna. Rajeev Sharma, Director, Western Himalayan Mountaineering Institute, Manali, conservationist and wildlife photographer Ramnath Chandrashekar from Chennai, Surendar Soinik and Soinik from New Delhi and Rahul Ogra from Manali comprise the rest of the team.

After careful preparation, the team is all geared up for an exciting expedition with Zanskar touted to be a Shangri-La of sorts according to local legends. “The terrain and the climate are what would make the trek challenging,” says Vrinda Ramanan in anticipation. “We would be walking across a frozen river used as a traditional passage in winter when mountain passes are blocked. The trek might involve detours and rock climbing with the whole area being snowed up.” Temperatures are expected to fall below -30 to -35 degree C.

The team would leave Chennai for Delhi on January 14 and fly to Leh. The trek would commence at Chilling, accessible from Leh by jeep. Journeying to Pidomo across the frozen river, the team would then proceed to Padum, the principal township of Zanskar and make their way back to Chilling. The expedition is expected to wind up on February 8.

Collector Jayashree Muralidharan flagged off the team at the Collectorate today and wished the members bon voyage.

The facility, according to P. Kalaiselvan, District Sports Officer, will enable players to practice late in the evening. “It is also important for young spikers to get used to floodlights under which most of the volleyball tournaments are played these days,” he said.

Thanga. Pichayappa, secretary, Tiruchi District Volleyball Association, observed that such facilities would draw more volleyball aspirants.

Exhibition matches were a part of the inaugural function.

In the men's match, Tiruchi Sports Hostel took on Central Zone Police, while in the women's section, the encounter was between PKR Arts College for Women, Erode and St. Mary's Higher Secondary School, Salem.

T.S. Balan, former Indian volleyball player; R.A. Krishnakumar, Executive Director, DCBL, Ariyalur unit; E.Ma. Masanamuthu, City Police Commissioner; A. Amalraj, Deputy Inspector General of Police, Tiruchi Range; R. Lalitha Lakshmi, Superintendent of Police, Tiruchi district; S.

Indoor stadium to be ready by November

Image

Tiruchi is set to become one of the main sports hubs in the State with major infrastructure developments being carried out by the Sports Development Authority of Tamil Nadu (SDAT).

Following the creation of a synthetic hockey turf of international standard, more sports facilities are coming up at the Anna Stadium complex, said M. Vijayakumar, SDAT member secretary, after an inspection here on Monday.

Remaining works pertaining to construction of a multi-purpose indoor stadium would be completed by next month-end, he said. The indoor stadium can host a range of events, including basketball, volleyball, and badminton with a capacity to accommodate nearly 2,000 spectators. He assured that efforts would be taken to lay wooden flooring for the indoor stadium.

The Anna Stadium would be getting a synthetic athletics track with floodlights. “SDAT is in the process of finalising the tender.” A squash court is also coming up at the stadium and synthetic surface for the tennis courts is on the anvil, he added.

Promising initiatives for appointment of NIS-qualified coaches across the State, Mr. Vijayakumar said: “Coaches play a crucial role in producing future champions. It is important to provide quality training to the youngsters.”

Mr. Vijayakumar visited the swimming pool and sports hostel in the stadium complex. N. Sundaram, Deputy General Manager, SDAT; S. Panneerselvam, Regional Senior Manager, Tiruchi-unit of SDAT, were present.

Synthetic track to clear hurdles for aspiring athletes

With the Anna Stadium in the city all set for getting a synthetic athletics track, the long felt need of the sports fraternity in Tiruchi is poised for fruition.

The announcement made by C.Ve.Shanmugam, Minister for School Education, Sports and Youth Welfare, in the Assembly recently that an eight-lane synthetic athletics track with floodlights would be established in Tiruchi, has brought cheers to the athletics community of the district.

“It has been our yearning for a long time and we are thankful to the State government,” said N.Annavi, former international high jumper and secretary, Tiruchi District Athletics Association.

The synthetic athletics track in Tiruchi will be the fourth in the State after Chennai, Coimbatore and Madurai. Mr.Annavi observed that the facility, once in place, would be of immense benefit to young athletes. “We have highly talented athletes who have done well at different levels. Though they usually go to Madurai or Chennai to practise in synthetic tracks for a couple of weeks before the commencement of an event they have been winning medals consistently.” Mr.Annavi, a former high jump national record holder, felt that the synthetic track would help in the hosting of prestigious events and inspire more youngsters to take up athletics. The flood lights, he said, would enable athletes to practice late in the evening. Welcoming the State government's decision, Olympian P.Subramanian said that synthetic athletics track would benefit not only Tiruchi athletes but also those in the neighbouring districts.

“Apart from the eight lanes, a couple of practice lanes should also be laid,” added Mr.Subramanian, who represented the country in 200 metre sprint in the 1980 Moscow Olympics.

Promising high jumper Nikhil Chittarasu, an employee of Southern Railway, Tiruchi division, is excited about Tiruchi getting a synthetic track. “It will be a boon for athletes like me aspiring to make it big in the international arena,” said Nikhil, who represented the country in last year's Commonwealth Games and Asian Games.

A synthetic hockey turf of international standard has already been created at the Anna Stadium complex, which also has a football ground, swimming pool, gymnasium and a sports hostel. More sports facilities are coming up.

The construction of a multipurpose indoor stadium is nearing completion. It can host a range of events including basketball, volleyball, badminton and handball with a capacity to accommodate nearly 2,000 spectators.

A squash court is coming up at the sprawling stadium and first phase of the works have been completed. The synthetic surface for the tennis courts in the stadium is on the anvil. Once the projects are completed, Tiruchi will rank among cities with best sports facilities in the State.

The six-day tournament, which concluded here on Sunday, threw up some exciting contests. Twelve teams from six regions – Chennai, Tiruchi, Madurai, Tirunelveli, Coimbatore and Dharmapuri – took part in the tournament, which was organised by the Tiruchi-unit of SDAT.
