The Ineos runner Egan Bernal suffered a serious accident today while training in Bogotá. As they assure from the British team, the Colombian «is stable» and under observation in a hospital after crashing into a bus while riding the roads of Cundinamarca, a town 30 kilometers from the Colombian capital.
The fateful hours of Karim Benzema
Ancelotti stressed that everything went wrong in the match against Elche, except for the last ten epic minutes, until the draw. The Italian said that in clear reference to his best footballer, the top scorer in the Spanish League, who has been a candidate for the Ballon d’Or and the FIFA World Player. Benzema is the thermometer from Real Madrid.
The French staged the club’s sports scale. If the ram works, the equipment carburizes. When the striker is “not there”, the white team is not there. And the leader suffered a disagreement on Sunday against the ilicitanos because the nine did not find himself. It was the fateful day Benzema.
The wonderful madness of Jamaica with the snow
jamaica, lo and behold, has found a gold mine in winter sports. What began as an impossible dream, a wonderful madness, is today an indisputable reality that will allow the Caribbean country to attend the Beijing Games with the largest delegation in its history. They are the heirs of that historic bobsleigh quartet, today almost national heroes, who came to Calgary in 1988 with what they were wearing and to the astonishment of the rest of the planet. Today, on the other hand, their growing structure has allowed them to classify up to three teams in bobsleigh (men’s quadruple, men’s double and women’s individual), and for the first time they will send an alpine skier to the Games, Benjamin Alexander, entered in the giant slalom.
Alicante also wants a CAR
The president of the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation and the vice president of the federative body, Javier Sanz and Miguel López Barbero, respectively, have presented the president of the Alicante Provincial Council, Carlos Mazón, with their support for the project to create the Alicante High Performance Center that It would be located in the facilities that the Real Club de Regatas has in the Pigeon Shooting. The project recognizes the long nautical and sports tradition of the city, consolidates the RCRA facilities in La Cantera and continues, in addition to strengthening, the long history of the club hosting this type of activity. Not in vain, the national teams of the 470 and Laser categories have been training since last year in Alicante. Alicante CAR will also serve, beyond its intrinsic objectives, to enhance the image of Alicante and its province in the field of water sports and tourism and to boost the productive sectors linked to these activities in all Alicante municipalities.
Jordi Ribera’s back room
During the matches of the handball team, the players run, stop or score. On the bench is the serious and concentrated face, knees bent, of Jordi Ribera who feeds the close-ups with time stopped. Behind them, there is a retinue of professionals who neither score, stop nor direct the match, but without whom it would be more difficult for Spain to be so close to reaching the semifinals in this European Championship.
Xavi promotes and protects the seniors
The poor results that have weighed down Barcelona and the poor game shown in the last two games, against Athletic in the Super Cup and Alavés in the League, have generated a series of criticisms focused on the performances of the most veteran footballers and who make up the axis backbone of the team Xavi Hernandez. Sergio Busquets, Gerard Piqué and Jordi Alba make up the target against which the darts of the most acidic environment of the Catalan club crash, which urgently demands a generational change that has been aborted with the return of Dani Alvis, 38 years old. All four were in the Berlin final, lifting Barcelona’s fifth Champions League, and the three captains, far from being unseated after the debacles against Roma, Juventus, Liverpool or the humiliation against Bayern Munich, are fundamental pieces for the Barcelona coach. The man from Egar hugs the meritocracy in his speech but he contradicts himself when he states that “the youngsters are the ones who are maintaining the team and are the ones who make the difference, and that is difficult to digest”. Four weeks after the criticism, he defends the veterans tooth and nail and keeps them in the starting team.
