Arsenal have given midfielder ‘green light’ to leave – Player ‘wants…

first_imgWith Lucas Torreira seemingly on his way out of Arsenal, there are a number of teams in Italy keen on his services. First we had Torino, who were the ones who brought this idea to our attention, followed by both Fiorentina and AS Roma, with the latter of the two thinking about a swap between the Uruguayan and Amadou Diawara.Well, it’s the Turin club we’ll be focusing on today, as Gazzetta dello Sport look at how they will change under their new manager, Marco Giampaolo.The name might sound familiar to you, and that’s because he’s a huge fan of Torreira, having managed him at Sampdoria, and was the one behind all those stories of the midfielder potentially moving to Milan last year.He’s now in charge at Torino, where Gazzetta explain the idea of bringing the Arsenal midfielder to the club is one that ‘fascinates a lot’.Described as an ‘authentic student of Giampaolo’s’, Torreira’s desire ‘is to return to Italy’, with the Gunners ‘giving him the green light’ to do so.For Torino, the only way they would get a player of the Uruguay international’s value and aware would be ‘through a loan’, but that doesn’t mean it can’t happen.After all, it’s under Giampaolo that Torreira blossomed into the player Arsenal bought, so why wouldn’t he also want a reunion with a manager who knows exactly how to get the best out of him?by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayHero Wars根本不可能获得这个宝藏!来证明我们错了Hero WarsUndoForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoNessa HearingPeople in Singapore Born Before 1965 Eligible for Free Hearing Aid TrialNessa HearingUndoDBS”I had S$9 left in my bank account”DBSUndoWealthMastery.asiaThis Singaporean Couple is Disrupting A $3 Trillion IndustryWealthMastery.asiaUndoInvest With VICLocal Singaporean Mother Collects Rental Income Without Becoming LandlordInvest With VICUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadThe Fantasy World of This Game Is Like Nothing You’ve Ever Seen BeforeRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoSingtelGet 30GB for $25 on SG’s #1 network.SingtelUndoGOMO by Singtel.Switch to GOMO. 40GB for $20 for 12 months!GOMO by Singtel.Undolast_img read more

World Athletics suspends Olympic qualification period until December

first_img COMMENT The pandemic has claimed more than 70,000 lives. Commenting on the decision, World Athletics President Sebastian Coe said: “I am grateful for the detailed work and feedback from our Athletes’ Commission and Council who believe suspending Olympic qualification during this period gives more certainty for athlete planning and preparation and is the best way to address fairness in what is expected to be the uneven delivery of competition opportunities across the globe for athletes given the challenges of international travel and government border restrictions.” Athletes who have already met the entry standard since the start of the qualification period in 2019 remain qualified and will be eligible for selection by their respective Member Federations and National Olympic Committees, together with the other athletes who will qualify within the extended qualification period. The end of the Olympic qualification periods are May 31, 2021 (for 50km race walk and marathon) and June 29, 2021 for all other events. WATCH US LIVE Press Trust Of India SUBSCRIBE TO US LIVE TV Qualification starting dates for entry standards and world rankings remain unchanged with many athletes already qualified by meeting the entry standards during 2019.  “With the qualification period from December 1, 2020 to May 31, 2021 (or 29 June 2021 depending on the event) the eligible qualification period (taking into account the eight-month suspension period) is longer than the original period by an additional four months,” the statement added. World Athletics on Tuesday suspended the qualification period for the Tokyo Olympics until December 2020 in wake of the fast-spreading COVID-19 pandemic following consultation with its Athletes’ Commission, Area Presidents and Council. “Qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games is suspended effective from 6 April 2020 until 30 November 2020 included,” World Athletics said in a statement.  “During this period, results achieved at any competition will not be considered for Tokyo 2020 entry standards or world rankings, the publication of which will also be suspended.”World Athletics suspends Olympic qualification periodcenter_img Image credits: AP Written By Results will continue to be recorded for statistical purposes, including for world records, subject to the applicable conditions but they will not be used to establish an athlete’s qualification status. “Subject to the global situation returning to normal, the qualification period will resume on 1 December 2020 and continue to the new qualification deadline in 2021 set by the International Olympic Committee (see qualification period table at the end).  “The total qualification period, which started in 2019, will be four months longer than it was originally,” the statement read further.

Lionel Messi: Rivaldo Urges Protection For Argentine Ace

first_imgFormer Barcelona striker Rivaldo says Lionel Messi must be rushed after the Argentine completed his first 90 minutes of the season for the Catalans in midweek when he helped them battle back to beat Inter Milan in the Champions League.Messi has endured a frustrating campaign with a foot injury restricting him to only two starts — a major factor in the club’s slow start which has left them fourth in La Liga.Manager Ernesto Valverde knows how vital Messi is to Barca’s prospects and it would be a tough call to leave him on the bench, but Rivaldo says he must not be rushed back.“Lionel Messi is still recovering from injury and finding his rhythm,” Rivaldo, said on Friday.“But I was happy to see him playing for 90 minutes and sacrificing himself for the team, even if it was obvious that he’s not 100% fit.”Barcelona face sixth-placed Sevilla on Sunday with both teams level on 13 points from seven games and while Messi is more than likely to feature in only his third La Liga game of the season, Rivaldo urges caution.“Messi’s importance in this win against Inter only reinforces my view that he has to be more protected in this phase of his career,” former Barca favourite and FIFA World Player of the Year Rivaldo said.“He must be allowed to fully recover so that he can stop feeling any pain and lose any fear of fighting for each ball. He must be allowed to recover his joy on the pitch, as he is very important for Barcelona, especially when on his best form.”Rivaldo says the clash with Sevilla could be too early.“Of course Messi wants to play. But it could be time to reflect with the medical staff and check if playing too much time after coming back from an injury could be risky for his recovery,” he said.“It’s an important match against Sevilla but there is a lot of the league season to play yet, so perhaps protecting the player could reap rewards later, as it would allow Messi to have some more days to recover from his midweek efforts.”Relatedlast_img read more

Lifeguard recalls his own dangerous ride on deadly water slide that killed boy: ‘We never stopped’

first_img Related ABC News (KANSAS CITY, Mo.) — About a year before a 10-year-old Kansas boy was killed in 2016 on a water slide, lifeguard Nathan Campbell experienced firsthand just how dangerous the ride was, he said.Campbell, 20, was a lifeguard at the Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Kansas City the summer Caleb Schwab was killed on the ride, called Verruckt, and was among a group asked in 2015 to volunteer one morning to do test runs on the attraction, he told ABC News.“Every morning before the park opened, lifeguards had to test the ride three times and the first two times we rode it everything went well,” Campbell said.But on the third test run, something went wrong, he said. The rubber raft he and another lifeguard were strapped into failed to slow down as it reached the run-off pool at the bottom of the 17-story slide.“The brakes just didn’t work, so we never stopped,” Campbell said.He said the raft slammed into a concrete wall at the end of the run-off pool.“We kept going, hit a wall and flipped,” Campbell said. “I mean, it was going pretty fast. It wasn’t a hard hit, but it wasn’t quite a soft hit as well.”He told ABC News the crash left him with minor back injuries that didn’t require medical treatment but nonetheless he was afraid to ever go on the Verruckt again.ABC News has reached out to Schlitterbahn regarding Campbell’s allegations but did not immediately hear back.“Nobody ever followed up,” said Campbell.On Monday, Jeffrey Henry, 62, co-owner of Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Kansas City, was arrested on charges of second-degree murder, aggravated battery and aggravated child endangerment stemming from the Aug. 7, 2016, death of Caleb Schwab on Verruckt. Henry’s business partner, John Schooley, was indicted on the same charges and Tyler Austin Miles, the water park’s former operations director, was charged with involuntary manslaughter, among many other charges.Henry appeared briefly today in a court in Cameron County, Texas, where he was arrested on Wednesday. His attorney asked a judge to set bond for Henry.An indictment unsealed Tuesday alleges Henry and Schooley designed the water slide without any certifiable expertise and constructed it in violation of “nearly all aspects” of industry safety standards.Investigators said a raft Caleb was in collided with one of a series of metal hoops that held netting over the slide to prevent rafts from going airborne, decapitating the boy. Two women riding with Caleb were also injured; one suffered a fractured jaw bone and the other was left with an orbital bone fracture.The defendants, according to the indictment, also allegedly tried to hide from investigators evidence of at least a dozen other incidents in which passengers were injured on Verruckt leading up to Caleb’s death. The water slide opened to the public in July 2014, the same year it was certified as the world’s tallest by the Guinness Book of World Records.Corporate emails, memos, blueprints, videos, photos and statements from witnesses allegedly showed that “this child’s death and the rapidly growing list of injuries were foreseeable and expected outcomes,” according to the indictment.Among the numerous alleged flaws investigators found with the water slide, the braking system appears to have been a persistent problem that Miles was made well aware of, according to the indictment.“In addition to numerous oral reports, [there were] 21 written staff reports advising Miles that Verruckt’s brake system was in the process of failure…” the indictment reads.“On July 15, 2016, 23 days before the death of [Caleb Schwab], a seasonal manager finally heeded the various reports and flagged the brake system as an urgent priority level 1 maintenance issue. Rides that have priority level 1 maintenance issues are not supposed to operate until the repair has been completed,” the indictment states.“Miles possessed authority to close the Verruckt for this repair, but … staff did not. Miles chose to continue operating Verruckt unceasingly. No repairs were made and the brake was allowed to fail,” the indictment states.But Schlitterbahn Waterpark disputed the accusations in a statement.“The allegation that we operated, and failed to maintain, a ride that could foreseeably cause such a tragic accident is beyond the pale of speculation,” the company said.“The accusation that we withheld information or altered evidence is completely false. We have operated with integrity from day one at the waterpark — as we do throughout our water parks and resorts. We put our guests and employees safety first; and safety and maintenance are at the top of our list of priorities,” the statement added. “… We will be fighting these charges aggressively. We know that Tyler is innocent and that we run a safe operation — our 40 years of entertaining millions of people speaks to that.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Georgetown earns NIT bid, set to host Harvard

first_imgThe Hoyas have played the Crimson three times going 3-0. Their last meeting took place in 2009. Harvard, the regular season Ivy League Champion, finished with an 18-11 overall record losing to Yale in the Conference Championship. It certainly isn’t the tournament that fans were hoping for, but for the first time in four years, the Georgetown Hoyas will be playing a post-season tournament. The Hoyas were given a three seed and will host the six seed Harvard at 7:00 P.M. on Wednesday evening at McDonough Gymnasium. The game will be broadcast on ESPN2. The Hoyas enter the game as 6.5 point favorites. They will look to stop Harvard Junior Guard, Bryce Aiken, who scored 38 against Yale and has averaged 22.6 on the season. No other Crimson has averaged more than 11 points per game. Aiken, along with all of the Harvard guards, are dangerous from three which has posed a problem for the Hoyas all year. While the young Hoyas had gotten hopes up for an NCAA bid, the invitation to the NIT is in line with the steady improvement that Patrick Ewing is hoping to bring to the program.
