Sachin Tendulkar Detailed Biography
Sachin Tendulkar, born Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar, (dob: April 24, 1973) is a living cricket legend and member of the Indian cricket team since 1989. He made his international debut against Pakistan in 1989 at the age of 16. He is widely regarded as one of the best batsmen of all time and possibly the greatest of his era. Sir Donald Bradman, the Australian great said of Sachin Tendulkar, "He reminds me of myself". Born in Mumbai (formerly Bombay) into a middle class family, Sachin Tendulkar was named after his family's favorite musician Sachin Dev Burman. He played his first international match against Pakistan in Karachi facing up to the likes of Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis. He scored just 15 runs and was bowled by Waqar Younis, who also made his debut in that match. It was an innings very different from how the rest of his career went. He followed it up with his maiden test fifty a few days later at Faisalabad. However he could not get a century in that series. His One-day International (ODI) debut on December 18 was equally disappointing where he was dismissed without scoring a run again by Waqar Younis. The series was followed by a non-descript tour of New Zealand in which he did not make remarkable contribution. In the tour of England in 1990 he scored his maiden test century but the other scores were not remarkable. It was in the 1991/1992 tour of Australia that he made his mark as a remarkable batsman. He has been man of the match 11 times in test matches and Man of the Series twice, both times in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia. His maiden ODI century came on September 9, 1994 against Australia in Sri Lanka at Colombo. He was named by Wisden as one of the Cricketers of the Year 1997 which was the first calendar year in which he scored a 1000 test runs. He repeated the feat in 1999, 2001 and 2002.

Olympic gold in BeijingOlympic gold in Beijing
Olympic champion Barbora Spotakova of the Czech Republic broke the women's javelin world record at the World Athletics Final on Saturday.

"I was thinking about how I can throw a personal best today, I never really thought about the world record," Spotakova said, "I was really shocked. I didn't expect it. It's just unbelievable."

The Czech who won the Olympic gold in Beijing with her previous best of 71.42, made 72.28 meters in her first throw to break the world mark of 71.70 set by Osleidys Menendez of Cuba at the 2005 world championships in Helsinki.

Spotakova, also world champion, will receive a 100,000 U. S. dollars bonus for the record.
