Speed skating Lara van Ruijven world champ dies aged 27

first_imgAMSTERDAM: World champion Dutch speed skater Lara van Ruijven has died aged 27 after battling with an autoimmune disorder, the Royal Dutch Skating Federation (KNSB) said on Friday.The 27-year-old short track skater, who won a bronze medal at the 2018 Olympics, was admitted to hospital in Perpignan, France last month after falling ill during a training camp. She was placed in intensive care and kept in an artificial coma but despite undergoing surgery, her health continued to deteriorate. “What horrible news we’ve just received. Her loss will be felt through the whole sporting world,” said Dutch short track coach Jeroen Otter. “It is an enormous blow for a close-knit group. We’ve missed her over the last two weeks but today’s news is so definite and surreal.” Van Ruijven won the 500 metres title at the world championships in Sofia last year, and an Olympic bronze medal in the 3,000m relay at 2018 Pyeongchang Games. “We feel the pain for her family and the short track team,” said KNSB director Herman de Haan. “This is hard to comprehend. On behalf of KNSB I want to wish Lara’s friends and family strength with dealing with this great loss.” Agencies ALSO WATCH: VEGETABLE PRICES BURN HOLE IN COMMON MAN’S POCKET IN GUWAHATIlast_img read more

Badgers reaching critical point in season against Eastern Illinois

first_imgCommanding performances this week resulted in a 1-1 draw to UW-Milwaukee and a 1-0 win over Big Ten rival Michigan State for the University of Wisconsin’s men’s soccer team. The results allowed the Badgers to get a bump in the polls, propelling them into the top 25 once again.After playing ranked teams back-to-back the Badgers will face a less recognized opponent Wednesday as they take on Eastern Illinois Oct. 30.Eastern Illinois has had a rough season so far. With only one senior on the squad the young team has struggled in many aspects. The Panthers are 1-11-2 on the season and a staggering 0-7-0 on the road and their lone win coming on Oct. 20 against Oral Roberts.In their seven road games this year the Panthers have lost by a combined score of 8-22, with half of their goals coming in one game, a 5-4 loss, to Indiana University-Evansville. After being shut out their last two games, Eastern Illinois will be looking to steal one against the 23rd-ranked Badgers.In contrast, the Badgers have been lights out at home. Wisconsin has won every game in the McClimon Complex dating back to last season, and their wins have come in every shape and form. The Badgers scored a last-second goal forced overtime against DePaul, they successfully rallied against Indiana and they fought off comebacks from Drake and Western Michigan. The Badgers home field has become a fortress for the 10-3-2 Badgers.The fortress has yielded wins against top-ranked opponent’s No.18 Marquette and No.22 Michigan State, as well as a statement win against last year’s defending national champions Indiana. The wins will surely look good when the selection committee meets to determine the at-large bids for the NCAA Tournament later this fall.The Wisconsin squad, led by its four senior captains, has been solid all season all over the field. As always, keep an eye on Tomislav Zadro, Drew Conner and Nick Janus on the offensive end of the field. The Badgers will be itching to get back to their goal-scoring ways after scoring just one goal in each of the last four games.If the game is going in favor of the Badgers, expect to see a lot of young players step up and sub in during the second half. Joe Naughton, Nick Jones and Anders Kristensen have all caught minutes this season, and it is likely head coach John Trask will reward them with a bit more playing time in an easier matchup.The game may also shed some light on the goalkeeper battle that has been brewing. After the loss to Michigan on Oct. 20, Casey Beyers has been pulled from the field in favor of senior Max Jentsch.According to Trask, the move was made to reward Jentsch for his hard work in practice. Since taking the job, he has allowed only one goal to UW-Milwaukee and was able to record a shutout against Michigan State on Sunday.For Wisconsin this is a must win game. Any result other than a win will hurt the Badgers chances of making an NCAA tournament run, while simultaneously ruining the magic of the McClimon Complex.last_img read more

Canelo Alvarez intends to start ‘new chapter’ in GGG rematch

first_imgAlvarez and Golovkin fought to a split draw last year in that rarest of boxing matchups: A showdown between two elite fighters near the peak of their powers. Golovkin, who felt he had won, still reached an apex of his late-blooming career after lobbying for years to get a fight with the Mexican superstar.Alvarez knew the fight was close, but he clearly benefited from having a true rival and equal in the ring. The rematch, set for May 5, was a natural for both — but then Alvarez tested positive for clenbuterol in February.Alvarez withdrew from the bout, which was only rescheduled after months of negotiations and a reconfiguring of the financial terms. All the while, Golovkin and his trainer, Abel Sanchez, lobbed increasingly vicious verbal assaults at Canelo’s camp, believing Alvarez had knowingly cheated.Two fighters who once trained together in Big Bear are no longer friendly enough to stand together on stage at their public workout in Los Angeles last weekend. Alvarez is fed up with the criticism, feeling it goes beyond normal fight promotion theatrics.When asked at the public workout if he would shake Golovkin’s hand in sportsmanship after their bout, Alvarez said: “For me, it’s very difficult, especially after all the things that have been said, all the offensive claims. That’s going to be very hard for me. I don’t know.”In a separate interview a few minutes later, Golovkin said Alvarez is “not a champion” and “a liar.”But while the fight promotion is dominated by bad feelings and verbal fireworks, Alvarez is studiously training in San Diego. Eddy Reynoso wants his fighter to throw more punches in the rematch while still avoiding a slugfest that could make both fighters vulnerable to a knockout.“We’re going to keep the defense, but be more active,” Reynoso said. “He’s going to throw better combinations, and he’s going to think about counterpunching much better. We’ve been working on it every day. When Golovkin throws punches and misses, that’s when Canelo needs to stop him.”Alvarez also got a benefit from his lengthy absence from the ring: He was able to have knee surgery in April to remove a cyst that had annoyed him last year.Not everything in camp is going perfectly: At the training session earlier in August, Eddy Reynoso proudly showed off his custom-made gloves — called “No Boxing No Life” — that he intended to have Alvarez wear in the rematch. The Nevada Athletic Commission on Tuesday refused to allow the new gloves to be worn, saying they hadn’t been adequately tested. Chepo Reynoso, Eddy’s father and the veteran boxing trainer who now manages Alvarez’s career, smiles at the familial vibe, along with the loving interplay between the fighter and his daughter.“When so many (bad) things happen, you become immune,” Reynoso said. “Venom doesn’t kill you. It fortifies you.”After making what he insists was an inadvertent mistake by eating tainted meat in Mexico, Alvarez is determined to reassert his supremacy, and to reclaim his reputation. He acknowledges the correctness of his punishment, but he’s also eager to reach a point when he isn’t talking about it every day.Suspensions end, and fights must go on. The redheaded former teenage prodigy who grew to become a father and a champion is moving forward.“The negativity doesn’t get through to me,” Alvarez said. “I always focus on what I’m doing. I have to think about the fight. If (Golovkin) is thinking about me all the time, he’s not thinking about the fight.”ADVERTISEMENT DepEd’s Taal challenge: 30K students displaced Alvarez’s suspension for failing two drug tests earlier this year is the primary source of this animus. It’s the reason the fight was postponed four months, costing both fighters untold millions, and it’s the reason the Mexican champion has been out of the ring for the longest stretch in his 13-year professional boxing career.But in the tranquility of Alvarez’s training gym in an office park set on the gently rolling hills of suburban San Diego, with only his smiling daughter and his retinue for an audience, Alvarez doesn’t fixate on the caustic words thrown his way constantly by Golovkin’s camp, or ponder the loss of any fans whose faith in him waned.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’“This is my biggest fight, and this is starting a new chapter, a second chapter in my career,” Alvarez said. “It’s going to be a big victory for me, and I’m going to come out of it with a new energy.”Alvarez goes through a workout both crisp and familiar, with trainer Eddy Reynoso monitoring each move.

(AP Photo/Reed Saxon)SAN DIEGO — Canelo Alvarez is getting his hands wrapped for training when he cocks his head and makes a kissing noise. In a stroller across the gym, his baby daughter’s face positively lights up at the sound.Alvarez is deep in the final weeks of work before he meets Gennady Golovkin on Sept. 15 in a middleweight title rematch. It’s the most compelling fight of the year and the possible culmination of a sports rivalry that has turned into a bitter personal grudge.ADVERTISEMENT Gov’t in no rush to rescue animals in Taal View comments Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines? But Reynoso and Alvarez are determined to step in the ring in two weeks with a clear focus. The only path to redemption, Canelo feels, is through victory.“Actions speak louder than words,” Alvarez said. “Yeah, it bothers me, but I’m going to use it to energize me and motivate me and inspire me to go harder. They’re going to understand all the fuel they gave me.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California collegecenter_img Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ MOST READ Nadal passes test after test, beats much younger foe at Open Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew SEA GAMES 2019: PH’s Nesthy Petecio boxing featherweight final (HIGHLIGHTS) PLAY LIST 02:11SEA GAMES 2019: PH’s Nesthy Petecio boxing featherweight final (HIGHLIGHTS)03:47PH’s Charly Suarez boxing lightweight final (HIGHLIGHTS)03:24PH’s James Palicte boxing light welterweight final (HIGHLIGHTS)02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Palace OKs total deployment ban on Kuwait OFWs ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
