Hamilton and other F1 drivers take a knee in Austria

first_imgSPIELBERG, Austria (Reuters) – Six times world champion Lewis Hamilton and a majority of Formula One’s 20 drivers took a knee on the starting grid before Sunday’s season-opening Austrian Grand Prix.The sport’s only Black driver, an outspoken campaigner against racial injustice and for greater diversity, wore a black T-shirt with ‘Black Lives Matter’ on the front and ‘End Racism’ on the back.Hamilton appeared to be the only driver with ‘Black Lives Matter’ on the front of his shirt as they gathered before the anthem at the Red Bull Ring. The others wore ones with the message ‘End Racism’.The knee protest was popularised by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in 2016 and has gained steam following the death of George Floyd, a Black man who died in police custody in Minneapolis in May.Television images showed six drivers standing behind the 14 who knelt, including Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc.Both had already explained their positions on social media.“I believe that what matters are facts and behaviours in our daily life rather than formal gestures that could be seen as controversial in some countries,” Leclerc said on Twitter.“I will not take the knee but this does not mean at all that I am less committed than others in the fight against racism.”Verstappen, winner in Austria for the past two years and on the front row of the grid, said he was also committed to equality and the fight against racism.“But I believe everyone has the right to express themself at a time and in a way that suits them. I will not take the knee today but respect and support the personal choices every driver makes,” said the Dutch 22-year-old.Formula One posted a clip of the drivers on Twitter with the words: “End Racism. One cause. One commitment. As individuals, we choose our own way to support the cause. As a group of drivers and a wider F1 family, we are united in its goal.”last_img read more

De Bruyne Goal Lifts City over Chelsea

first_imgManchester City sunday returned to the Premier League summit with an outstanding win at reigning champions Chelsea that was far more convincing than the scoreline suggested.Kevin de Bruyne’s spectacular 67th-minute winner against his former club, a rising left-foot drive from outside the area, gave Pep Guardiola’s side a victory their dominance deserved and saw them leapfrog back over arch-rivals Manchester United.City were without striker Sergio Aguero, who sustained rib injuries in a car crash in Amsterdam on Thursday, while Chelsea lost top scorer Alvaro Morata to injury in the first half. Guardiola’s men coped with Aguero’s absence superbly, and threatened to score long before De Bruyne finally broke the deadlock, with Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois making a brilliant reflex save from Fernandinho’s header before the break.City never looked in danger once De Bruyne scored and almost added a second when Gabriel Jesus’ volley was headed off the line by Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Water bacteria cancels Tokyo 2020 paratriathlon test swim

first_imgLast Updated: 17th August, 2019 17:39 IST Water Bacteria Cancels Tokyo 2020 Paratriathlon Test Swim The swimming section of a paratriathlon test event for Tokyo 2020 was cancelled Saturday due to high levels of bacteria in the water, the latest in a series of difficulties over water quality and temperature. Written By First Published: 17th August, 2019 15:30 IST The swimming section of a paratriathlon test event for Tokyo 2020 was cancelled Saturday due to high levels of bacteria in the water, the latest in a series of difficulties over water quality and temperature.Olympic organisers have won widespread praise for their preparations but extreme summer heat and poor water quality have brought headaches at practice events, with less than a year to go until the opening ceremony.The International Triathlon Union (ITU) shelved the swimming leg after tests showed levels of e-coli more than double the acceptable standard.The 70 paratriathletes instead competed in a duathlon format with two runs and a bike race. “We will keep doing our best to secure a safe and sound environment for athletes towards the Games next year,” Tokyo 2020 spokesman Masa Takaya said Saturday.  WATCH US LIVE COMMENT Former British paralympic triathlete Clare Cunningham tweeted that Saturday’s decision to abridge the race was “disappointing for all”.Read the tweet here:center_img “I’m so sorry for athletes that we could not prepare the competition conditions effectively,” Shinichiro Otsuka, managing director of Japan’s Triathlon Union, told reporters.”It was regrettable,” he said, vowing to step up preparations for Sunday’s Mixed Relay. Press Trust Of India SUBSCRIBE TO US It was the latest setback at a test event for Olympic organisers after extreme temperatures women’s triathlon run was cut short due to extreme heat in the Japanese capital on Thursday, with French triathlete Cassandre Beaugrand was taken to hospital for suspected heatstroke.Around a dozen competitors and spectators also fell ill at a rowing test event, also due to high temperatures, as Tokyo swelters through a deadly heatwave.Competitors at a marathon swimming test event on Sunday complained of smelly water and high water temperature at Odaiba Bay, the location for long-distance swimming and triathlon.Organisers are desperate to avoid the embarrassment of the 2016 Olympics in Rio when the pool used for diving events turned an unsettling shade of green overnight.Brazilian officials also had to scramble to clean up the bay used for sailing and windsurfing that was plagued by sewer bacteria and filthy with rubbish.In October 2017, Tokyo 2020 organisers were left red-faced after tests revealed levels of e-coli bacteria more than 20 times higher than international standards, sparking doubts about the venue’s safety.At the time, the organising committee blamed prolonged summer rain that had brought pollutants from offshore for the high readings between late July and early September.A year later, organisers said that tests using underwater “screens” to filter the water had successfully reduced bacteria levels at the venue.

Alexander: Dustin May’s education continues in Dodgers’ loss

first_img“I feel like my misses are closer,” he said. “I feel like I’m more around the zone. The execution of pitches is, I feel, getting better.”The Dodgers will utilize a six-man rotation for the next week, at least, for rest purposes, so May’s next start would be Sunday in Arizona. After that? Things are fluid.“I just gotta be ready for anything,” May said. “I have to be compatible with what’s going on. I’m excited to be here, and I’m really excited to do whatever they need me to do. I’m ready for it.”Left unsaid: All of this is expected to reach a crescendo in October, which has become the only month that truly matters for the Dodgers and their fan base.Will the kid be ready?

(AP Photo/Gregory Bull)ExpandSAN DIEGO — Dustin May will get at least one more start for the Dodgers, as Dave Roberts continues to ponder what to do with him down the stretch.As another in a series of auditions, May’s start Monday night in a 4-3 loss to the Padres suggested he might deserve more. (Maybe even an apology from A.J. Pollock, but we’ll get to that.)Right now, the string-bean right-hander with the curly ginger hair is the Dodger pitching staff’s X-factor. Roberts hasn’t yet decided if he would make a greater contribution as a starter or as a reliever. But May’s stuff and his poise suggest that, at just under 22 years old and with five major league games under his belt, there could very well be a place for him in the postseason.If there were justice, he could have pitched six innings Monday night and left with a 5-1 or 6-1 lead. But his teammates have again fallen into a funk with runners in scoring position, leaving the bases loaded twice in the early innings and going 1 for 10 in RISP situations. And Pollock’s inexplicable throw from center field into the visitors’ dugout scored the tying run and moved the winning run to third, and what had been a 3-1 lead turned into a loss that dropped May’s record to 1-3 as a big leaguer. Naturally, May blamed himself for not backing up third base, even though it was an ill-advised throw and third baseman Justin Turner probably shouldn’t have let it slip through him.“I gotta be behind third base to back that ball up,” May said. “There’s no excuse. I gotta be there.”It is what the smart rookie does, take responsibility.He is not the finished product yet, to be certain. But in his five major league outings he has demonstrated growth and he has shown poise and maturity.“For a 21-year-old, (his poise is) off the charts; it really is,” Roberts said. “And he’s a tremendous competitor. He expects a lot from himself, and today showed it. I know he was frustrated by the result … but overall he threw 81 pitches, and I think that a large majority of those pitches were quality pitches.”center_img He got squeezed occasionally by plate umpire Rob Drake’s Incredible Floating Strike Zone, but he certainly wasn’t alone. Both sides had plenty to complain about, and in fact, Turner had some choice words as Drake left the field after ringing him up to end the game.“I thought the pitch execution was pretty good,” May said. “I left a curveball up to Austin (Allen, pinch hitter) in the sixth inning and he hit it pretty hard, but other than that I thought I threw the ball pretty decent.”Allen’s double to right-center started the Padres’ three-run rally in the sixth, though one of those runs was earned. He probably had an advantage, having seen May in the minors.“I went up there with a little bit of confidence just from facing Dustin through the low levels of the minors and even in Double-A a little bit,” Allen said. “I haven’t faced him this year, but I’ve got a pretty good feel in like where his release point is and all that stuff.“I’ve faced him so many times throughout the minors and he’s got such good stuff, don’t get me wrong. But after seeing guys again and again and again, I’m going to take my chances, no matter how good they are, because I know how their stuff is moving, and all the little things that go into it.”That sort of turns the whole “third time through the order” concept on its head. The guy who hit him hardest in that inning hadn’t seen him at all Monday night and was going on what he’d seen in Double-A in 2018.We already know this about May: He will work fast, he will keep the ball down, and he will induce soft contact. He is not yet getting hitters to swing and miss; in his four previous outings hitters had swung and missed on 9.7 percent of his pitches, according to Fangraphs; the rest of the Dodgers rotation is around 11 to 13 percent.Monday night he had eight swings and misses in 81 pitches: four on the two-seam fastball, two on the cutter, one each on the curve and slider. The two-seam was topping out at 97 mph early and was around 95 in the later innings.Roberts said before the game he feels the swings and misses will come as “a byproduct of execution and sequencing. When he can locate the fastball, get ahead and sequence appropriately, the stuff is there to get the swing and miss.”In what areas does May feel he’s improved since he was called up and made his first start against the Padres on Aug. 2 in L.A.?Related Articles Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire last_img read more

Loren, about Júnior and Fabián: “I’m sure they dream of coming back”

first_imgLoren Morón returned before the break to be the point of reference for Betis, on his own merits. The youth squad has 11 official goals as a verdiblanco this season (9 in the League, two in the Cup). Now it feels good in Heliópolis: “If I’m fine here, why should I get nervous or have nonsense in my head. If you are good in a place and you are valued for what you are going to make a change that maybe it will not turn out well, “he said in the official media. “I have lived everything here. In the end, everything is experiences and experiences to continue improving. Since I was late I have done a master in everything, in happiness entering Europe and in the bad with last season, that I did not experience good times. I am proud to be part of this team “, the striker claimed. Among other things, Loren spoke about the experiences of former teammates in other teams, such as Júnior Firpo at Barcelona and Fabián Ruiz at Nápoles. Asked about them, he stated: “Everyone who is a youth squad will want to return because both the club and the city are spectacular. This is what Betis does, that you fall in love with it, with the city and always want to return. I am sure that my colleagues who have left dream of returning. They are experiences that are going to live but more than one will end here “.“I talk to Fabián a lot and it is true that I was screwed up by this coronavirus, that he had never experienced it. He is there without the family and only with his partner. But in the end we talk, keep in touch and comment on things. With Junior I also speak and have good contact with all my colleagues “, add the marbellí.Loren presented on Instagram an XI of T-shirts in which, incidentally, included Fabián himself. Oblak; Gabriel Paulista, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo; Samu Castillejo, Odegaard, Fabián Ruiz, Griezmann; Iago Aspas, Luis Suárez and Benzema. “My eleven is more offensive than when you lose in FIFA”, the Betis footballer commented with a laugh.center_img LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of April 14, 2020last_img read more

Orchids were determined to win – Guy

first_imgJanet Guy, coach of newly crowned Berger Elite League champions, the St Ann Orchids, said it took a lot of hard work and determination from her team to win this year’s title. Orchids recorded a 49-37 victory over the Kingston Hummingbirds in the deciding game of the best-of-three finals to win the series 2-1 at the Alfred Sangster Auditorium at the University of Technology on Saturday. It was the Orchids’ first hold on the island’s premier netball trophy. However, they had to do it the hard way after coming from behind to win the series. The Orchids lost the opening game, 57-43, before returning to level the series with a 58-39 victory in Game Two. “It was a good team effort and I think everybody on the team understood what it takes to be a champion,” said Guy. “They train really hard when they do train and they listen and follow instructions and I really think they played hard for the entire season and so they deserved to win here,” said Guy. “We really bounced back well in the second game to force a game three, which was very good for netball, because a lot of people came out to support, and that was very good and I hope that this will continue into the club leagues,” Guy said. Sabrina Spence, who is the competition’s leading scorer, netted 39 goals from 44 attempts as the Orchids jumped out to a 26-15 lead at half-time. Former national captain Simone Forbes was also brilliant for the Orchids as she had her way with national defenders Shareema Sterling and Stacian Facey in scoring 10 goals from 12 attempts. National player Adean Thomas and former national representative Althea Byfield also turned in a good shift in defence for the Orchid as they outmuscled the Hummingbirds shooters, Thristina Hardwood and Kera Christie, throughout the match. BRILLIANT DEFENCE In fact, Thomas and Byfield were especially brilliant in the second quarter, where they limited the Hummingbirds to just seven goals. Harwood was the leading scorer for the Hummingbirds with 31 goals from 41 attempts, while Christie chipped in with five goals from ten tries. Kerry Brown, captain of the Hummingbirds, said they tried their best, but were very disappointed with the result. “I think we did fight because the scoreline was not that bad, but we played in patches and that was what really cost us the game,” said Brown. “We are very disappointed because after winning in the first game, we didn’t play (as well) in the other games, hence we lost the series.”last_img read more

Son jailed for threatening to kill father

first_imgPooran Deonarine JrA man, who laughed throughout Court proceedings, was sentenced to six months imprisonment for threatening to kill father over money to purchase cigarettes.Twenty-five-year-old Pooran Deonarine Jr, of Lot 63 Brutus Street, Agricola, East Bank Demerara, appeared before Principal Magistrate Faith McGusty at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts where he denied the three charges.The first charge stated that on July 5, 2019 at Lot 63 Brutus Street, Agricola, East Bank Demerara, he used threatening language towards his father, Pooran Deonarine.It was further alleged that on the same day and at the same location, he damaged six windowpanes valued $20,000, property of his father.Deonarine Jr, in his explanation to the Court, stated, “I am unemployed, and yes, I threatened to kill him because I wanted the money to buy cigarettes. The only reason I pelt stones through the window was to get his attention”.Police Prosecutor Annalisa Brummell told the Court that on the day in question, the victim was at home when Deonarine Jr showed up and demanded $1, 000 from his father to buy cigarettes in which he refused. The Court heard that Deonarine Jr then became annoyed and began to threaten to kill his father.The elderly man, who became fearful for his life, locked himself inside his home when his son picked up several stones from the yard and threw them through the window causing damages. The matter was then reported and Deonarine Jr was arrested and charged.The Prosecutor pointed out to the Court that defendant was laughing throughout the Court proceeding and the fact that the charge is a serious one.The Magistrate, after listening to the facts, sentenced the man to six months for the threatening language and fined him $20,000, or in default, one month imprisonment for the damage to property.last_img read more
