13 â€˜specialâ€™ athletes from Anantapur in Indian contingent
Thirteen intellectually challenged athletes from Anantapur will take part in the Special Olympics World Games scheduled to be held at Los Angeles (U.S.A.) later this month.
These athletes are nurtured by the Rural Development Trust (RDT) through its community based rehabilitation schools which began in 2010.These schools were started with the support of the Special Olympics Bharat in order to empower â€˜specialâ€™ athletes and integrate them into society.
In 2011, three athletes, a boy and two girls, represented Anantapur at the Special Olympics World Games in Athens in 2011. They came back with four medals. â€œThis success changed their lives for good. It encouraged other intellectually-abled children numbering 34 to join the programme,â€ said Anne Ferrer, co-founder of RDT, on Monday.
Of these 34 athletes, 13 athletes, 7 girls and 6 boys, will represent India as part of the 200- strong Indian contingent in Los Angeles. Nearly 7,000 participants from 170 countries are taking part in this weeklong sports extravaganza.
The RDTâ€™s athletes in the Indian contingent are N. Lakshmi, Vani, Chandrashekhar and Ramachandra (Volleyball), Asifa and Uma Maheshwari (basketball), Balakrishna and Kullaima (badminton), Erryswamy and Naresh (weightlifting), Aswini (handball) Sreelatha (table tennis) and Sanjeeva Reddy (football).

Kurnool veterinary hospital gets Rs. 5 crore
The government has sanctioned Rs. 4 crore for constructing a four-storeyed building for the veterinary hospital-cum-polyclinic in Kurnool and Rs. 1 crore for procuring sophisticated equipment for treating animals.
The building design was approved and tender was finalised and construction work would commence in a week, in charge Deputy Director of Animal Husbandry K. Ramachandraiah told The Hindu on Monday.
The hospital building would have a full-fledged operation theatre, intravenous fluid room, x-ray plant, inpatient rooms for domestic and farm animals, farmersâ€™ rest rooms, hostel for trainees and field staff with rooms and a dormitory, a meeting hall, and would get equipment such as an ultrasound scanner, digital x-ray and endoscopy. The hospital would be fill-fledged in all aspects within a year, Dr. Ramachandraiah said.
Parvo viral enteritis disease was rampant among unvaccinated pet dogs with symptoms of fever, vomiting and blood motions, necessitating administration of saline and treatment ranging from a week to 10 days.
There was no medicine to cure the viral disease, he added. Zoonotic diseases such as rabies and leptospirosis were also prevalent moderately, Dr. Ramachandraiah said. Vaccinated pet dogs were however not affected by the viral fevers and large animals were not afflicted by any specific diseases. Doctors were treating about 100 to 120 animals every day including 60 dogs and 30 sheep and goats, in the veterinary polyclinic operating in the old building now. Most cases in rainy season related to animals facing delivery-related problems.
Dr. Ramachandraiah advocated the need for sanctioning an animal ambulance in Kurnool, a facility that was presently available only at Gudivada in Krishna district. Farmers who shift large sick animals to hospitals bear the ambulance charges fixed depending on the distance of travel, he said.
The Deputy Director posts were vacant all over the State, as their promotion issue was pending in the Supreme Court.
Promotion of assistant directors was pending and hence veterinary surgeons who put in more than 22 years of service were yet to get promotions, he said. Out of 122 veterinary assistant posts, about 15 were vacant, he added.
An amount of Rs. 4 crore will be used to construct a building and Rs. 1 crore to procure equipment

Rajahmundry (AP): Authorities here have stepped up measures to ensure security on the banks of Godavari river due to rise in water level keeping in view the rush of pilgrims attending the 12-day 'Pushkaram' festival.
Last week, at least 27 pilgrims died and 20 others were injured in a stampede at a major bathing spot on the banks of Godavari river where a huge crowd of devotees had gathered on the opening day of 'Pushkaram' festival on July 14.
Nearly 4.85 lakh pilgrims took the holy dip at various ghats in East Godavari and West Godavari districts on the 10-day of festival today, state Information Department said.
Heavy rains in last three days in the catchment areas have led to a rise in water level of Godavari, irrigation department's superintending engineer Harinadh Babu said.
As a precautionary measure, more expert swimmers have been deployed at various ghats for safety of the pilgrims converging in large numbers to take a holy dip during the 'Godavari Pushkaram', official sources said.
Senior police officials and other concerned authorities are also keeping a watch on the ghats, crowded roads, railway and bus stations, for the smooth conduct of the festival, which will culminate on Saturday, they said.
A number of CCTV cameras have been put up at the ghats and main traffic areas of the city to maintain a vigil, sources said.
Some local organisations are supplying food packets, water, buttermilk and milk for children and aged people visiting the ghats.
Meanwhile, the water level in Godavari barrage at Dowleswaram was at 30.99 feet after heavy rains. Around 47,000 cusecs of water was stored in Sir Aurthor Cotton barrage reservoir at Dowleswaram, of which 7,000 cusecs was being utilised for agricultural purposes, Harinadh said.
