New York City Marathon Signs Tata Consultancy As Title Sponsor

Then there was an ejection that left New England with 10 men. Then Diego Fagundez scored what looked like a huge, dramatic game-winner for the visiting Revolution. And that was while a man down, remember. And then Tim Cahill scored a 97th minute equalizer the goal that puts New York into the playoffs. It was certainly no ordinary night. The backdrop was framed with drama: the Red Bulls needed only a draw to clinch their post-season spot and take another step toward an Eastern Conference regular season championship. They seemed on their way to getting in with a win (surely the preferred way) but a controversial handball on New Yorks Jamison Olave changed the game and breathed fresh life into New Englands playoff hopes. If Olave who was having an excellent match, helping generally prevent New Englands Premier League-bound striker Juan Agudelo from being dangerous got much arm on Saer Senes shot, it wasnt much. Olave appeared to block the ball legally with his upper chest area or front part of the shoulder. Minutes later, Revolution midfielder Andy Dorman was ejected for a nasty tackle, damaging the visitors chances of getting a second, late goal. Fagundezs late goal gave New England a 2-1 win, but Cahills late, late header put a punctuation mark on a wild, wild conclusion. Jay Heaps Revolution may now have to win all three remaining matches, including two on the road, to make the playoffs.

Though the partnership is signed and work will begin now on improving the NYRRs technology structure, Wittenberg said, the name change will begin Nov. 4, the day after this years NYC Marathon that is expected to draw about 48,000 runners. Were babes in the woods in terms of where we are with technology, Wittenberg said. There are a lot of areas we lead with New York Road Runners. I dont think its technology right now.

Other Marathons TCS has been the title sponsor of the Amsterdam Marathon and had smaller sponsorship deals with the races in New York, Boston , Chicago and Berlin, as well as running events in India. About 50 percent of TCSs business is U.S. based, according to Natarajan Chandrasekaran, chief executive officer. Wellness, fitness, education; these are the types of initiatives we actively promote in the communities, Chandrasekaran said in a telephone interview. It helps us to bring the talent that we have to leverage in the work we do in communities, and it helps us to energize our workforce. Last years NYC Marathon was amid criticism over initial plans to hold the race days after Hurricane Sandy devastated parts of the city. We have since last November focused on being here with all of our full energy and resources for our community in New York, Wittenberg said. International Logo Still, the new NYC Marathon logo has a global focus, with blue, yellow, red and green roads leading into the Statue of Liberty, an image that most represents New York City as welcoming the world, Wittenberg said. The New York race has a large international contingent, with last years 47,000 entries including 20,000 from outside the U.S. Chandrasekaran, 50, ran the NYC Marathon in 2009, and said he has also run Boston and Chicago.

“Nabby did a really good job for us,” Capuano said. “He made a lot of key second and third saves.” Columbus, which lost its season opener at home on Friday to Calgary, had a 5-4 shots advantage in overtime. New York held a 30-29 edge overall. Letestu started the rally with a power-play goal at 7:45, Columbus’ first advantage of the night, and Foligno tied it from in close with 8:06 left in regulation. Nabokov wasn’t overly busy early, but looked sharp in keeping the Blue Jackets at bay until the third-period surge. The 38-year-old goalie earned the win on Friday. “This league is so evenly matched up,” Nabokov said. “It’s not much difference between winning and losing.” The Islanders broke out in the second period, scoring twice including a power-play goal that ended the scoreless deadlock. New York put pressure on Bobrovsky and nearly scored when Josh Bailey fired a drive that Bobrovsky barely knocked away with his glove. In the ensuing scrum, Artem Anisimov was whistled for hooking, giving the Islanders the first man-advantage of the game. On the power play, Tavares moved the puck from the right circle up to Visnovsky, who was in the middle of the ice just inside the blue line. Visnovsky sent a pass left to Frans Nielsen , who quickly pushed the puck back to the defenseman for a shot that sailed through traffic and past Bobrovsky at 8:17. The Islanders needed only 5:44 more to double their lead, this time with Tavares and Visnovsky assisting on Moulson’s first traditional goal of the young season.
