WADA accused Moscow of falsifying data from a doping testing laboratory that was handed over to investigators earlier this year.READ | Odell Beckham Jr Addresses Helmet-throwing Incident Against The Baltimore RavensRussia has said it would contest the ban, with President Vladimir Putin slamming the sanctions as politically motivated. Speaking on Tuesday, Pozdnyakov confirmed that the Russian Olympic Committee would support the decision of its supervisory board to defy the WADA ban.

first_imgGhana U17 assistant coach Isaac Opeele Boateng has replied his critics following the team’s disappointing campaign at the African U17 Championship.Opeele has been pilloried for talking much and doing very little as a coach due to his media job.The former Asante Kotoko coach is a columnist in the state-owned Graphic Sports Newspaper and also a pundit on radio and television.Opeele has been tagged as boastful and disrespectful to other coaches in country in most of his post-match analysis in the media.His critics have questioned why he did not put his knowledge on tactics and techniques to good use at the tournament in Morocco.But the Mourinho-esque character has sent a stinker to his detractors in his response. “It’s just jealousy. I am still the special one of Ghana football,” Opeele told Asempa FM.“I’ve heard people say I am a talkative but I will still talk because that gives me money, it helps me to feed my family.“I can never be intimidated; I will be who I am because that’s how God created me. I will never change.“I’ve changed so many things in coaching in the country; I’ve forced coaches to talk about system and tactics after games rather than thanking God, and am proud of that.”Opeele has coached a lot of clubs in his young coaching career including Tudu Mighty Jets, defunct Kessben FC, Sekondi Hasaacas and Asante Kotoko.last_img read more

first_imgOKLAHOMA CITY — Another road trip without LeBron James wasn’t ideal for the Lakers this week, but at least there’s an optimistic note when they return.Wednesday’s news that James (strained left groin) will be cleared to practice next week was a welcome development given that the Lakers haven’t had him able to do much in nearly a month, save shoot and pass in half-court scenarios. But Luke Walton was a little cautious to say it’s a total green light.“We’ll see how this weekend goes,” Walton said. “He stayed back so that he could obviously get more work in, more treatment, not have to travel, hotel rooms. Just 100 percent focus on what he needs to do. And depending on how that goes and how he feels after this weekend will determine how much he can practice.”James’ troublesome groin will now keep him out a minimum of 13 games, and while the Lakers are hopeful he can join them during a stretch of five straight games at Staples Center to end the month, it’s far from certain. James’ agent Rich Paul recently told The Athletic that James’ health was not on anyone’s timeline but his own.

On Thursday morning in Oklahoma, the team did more work than usual during shootaround despite having a number of minor injuries that many players have soldiered through.“It’s easy to say it, but our guys actually, they go out and do it,” he said. “They come in and work, and they bring the right energy no matter what’s happening. Now obviously everyone’s happier when you’re winning, but for the most part, it’s been the same.”KUZMA PLAYS IN POWER-LACE SHOESKyle Kuzma became the second NBA player on Thursday night to wear a futuristic shoe with no knots required.

first_imgWellington girls celebrate Ark Valley Chisholm Trail League Div. IV Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The girls basketball sign in the Wellington High School gymnasium will no longer stand alone. Wellington has just won the 2015-16 Ark Valley Chisholm Trail League Div. IV title.Wellington defeated Circle 51-32 to improve to 9-0 in league with one more regular season game to play – a trip Thursday to Clearwater. The Crusaders are 19-0 overall and have the opportunity to wrap up their first undefeated regular season in history – boys or girls – before heading into the sub-state basketball tournament next week to be played in Wellington.The Crusaders batted down the Thunderbirds, who were 7-1 in league coming in, with a potent switch-point defense, allowing Circle just 10 points in the second half and four field goals – two of those in the waning moments with the game wrapped up.“The girls had a meeting before the game, and decided defense was going to decide this game,” said Eric Adams, Wellington head girls basketball coach. “They had to win the 50-50 battle, and outbound the opponent.”Wellington had 11 blocked shots for the game as Circle had no answers inside or outside in shooting the ball.Adams said Wellington’s switch-point zone allowed the team to pressure the perimeter while staying in a zone formation. Circle, which shot five 3-pointers in the first game between these two opponents, had just two in the first half – both coming during a wild second quarter.Wellington would end up with 13 deflections and seven steals. Wellington also had 37 rebounds including 25 defensively and 12 offensively.On the other end, the Crusaders shot 45 percent from the field which was much lower in the second half. The Crusaders have been wicked beyond the three-point line as of late. Not Tuesday. They had only two 3-pointers for the game and was 2-of-11 beyond the arch.Wellington got rolling early, taking an early 9-2 lead and held an 11-5 advantage at the end of the first quarter.Circle had its best quarter in the second, scoring 17 of its 32 points. But Wellington was playing tit-for-tat outscoring Circle 20-17 and taking a 31-22 advantage into halftime. The second quarter alone accounted for more than 50 percent of the points scored the rest of the game.Wellington and Circle traded misses for much of the third quarter, but Wellington would go on a 7-2 spurt at the three-minute mark to open up a 15-point lead. Circle could never get any closer.The Crusaders were led by Grace Mitchell with 15 points, all of those points in the first half. Lauryn Snipes had 12.———Technical foul: Mitchell was called for a technical foul in the first half after hitting a 3-pointer. Adams explained that it was not for being belligerent but instead as she was falling she grabbed the jersey of the Circle defender as she was going down. 6 32 — Circle 11 17 5 Wellington 52, Circle 32 Follow us on Twitter. 10center_img Wellington — G.

first_imgParis, France | AFP |  FIFA on Wednesday ordered a World Cup qualifier between South Africa and Senegal to be replayed after the referee was banned for match fixing.The November 2016 tie, which will be restaged in November, was won by South Africa 2-1 after Ghanaian referee Joseph Lamptey awarded them a controversial penalty.Lamptey was initially suspended for three months by African football’s ruling body CAF for awarding a penalty for a non-existant handball”, with FIFA handing down the life ban in March.News of the rematch comes as a boost for Senegal, who are placed third, one point behind Cape Verde and Burkina Faso in African zone qualifying Group D, with two games to go.Only the group winners secure a ticket to the 2018 finals in Russia.

first_img1 25 Lunin’s average this season, counting his appearances with Valladolid and Oviedo, is one goal every 92.72 minutes; that of Areola, 96.16. Considering what was done with the 15th First and 17th Second, the percentage of stops for the Best Goalkeeper of the U-20 World Cup is 75%, well above 55.17% of Zidane’s second goal today. In fact, in less minutes (1,020-1,034), it has stopped almost double, 30-16. These interventions include a penalty (in addition to two of the three that shot him in the round against Marbella, in the Cup), while Areola has not saved any of the two shots received from 11 meters. Although the crisis of coronavirus has grabbed with everything, Months go by and that forces clubs and players to make decisions. The maneuvering time is reduced as June approaches and at Real Madrid one of the hot potatoes is the goal potato. Courtois (27 years old), at a very high level, is a fixture, but Between Areola (27) and Lunin (21) there can only be one at the Bernabéu.center_img TO Lunin Above all, the bet on him from the offices supports him.

To the Ukrainian, in addition, It is ahead by its comparison with its main competitor, Areola: It improves him, among other records, in the minutes that rivals have to invest to beat him and in the percentage of stops. Areola wants to continue after his loan and Madrid values ​​his quick adaptation. With some error, he is a goalkeeper with experience in the elite and who helps the good atmosphere in the locker room. But Lunin, starting his takeoff in Asturias, launched an order last Saturday in Real Madridista: “I would like to go back and compete for number ‘1’.” It is up to the club to decide whether it is for that or it is preferable that it be confirmed after having played only 18 matches since the summer of 2018.last_img read more
