In one of the photos Bolt and Duarte, are locked in an intimate embrace while she looks into the camera, could it have been an innocent hug?

 A brief bio on Bolt’s love life and hookups

A twenty-year-old student from Rio, Jady Duarte,  has shared photos of what appear to be her with Usain Bolt after a wild night of partying on the final weekend of the Olympics.
Jady Duarte shared WhatsApp pictures that show her wearing a white top while embracing a bare-torsoed Bolt – who has a long-term girlfriend.

In one of the photos – which first appeared on several Brazilian websites including after Duarte shared them with friends – Bolt seems to give Duarte a kiss on the cheek while she looks into the camera.

However, reports from the Brazilian law enforcement authorities has shed more light on her identity.  Apparently Usain be a  nightstand with Bolt, in her othr life is  really the widow of a dangerous drug lord known as ‘Diná Terror’.
According to police, Jady Duarte’s ex Douglas Donato Pereira was responsible for torturing and murdering a teenage girl in September 2014 and played a big part in the narcotics trade at the Faz Quem Quer slum in Rio de Janeiro.
The former gang member, who had two kids with Jady, was shot dead by elite police in March this year.
Douglas Pereira  described himself as a “Lord of War” and “terror of policemen” and is said to have been wanted for at least 10 crimes.

Following his death, Jady wrote on Facebook: “In eternity, I will be with my love the way I always wanted, because in heaven all the time is time to be happy.
“God will take you in, it’s my hope that in eternity I will see you.”
After claiming she spent the night with Bolt, Duarte insisted her time with the Olympian was “just normal” and says she is now “dying of shame.”

I never wanted to be famous, I’m dying of shame.”She was tight-lipped about what happened, but added: “It was not a big deal. It was normal. I’d rather not talk about it to not complicate it.”

The Jamaican sprinter, who turned 30 on Sunday, was also pictured partying until the early hours of the morning at All In, a club in the Barra de Tijuca suburb of Rio.

It was a wild end to the sprinter’s third and apparently final Olympics where he won another three gold medals, cementing his legacy as one of the greatest sprinters of all time.
In typical fashion, the flamboyant runner took to the stage at the De Bracos Albertas club – delighting revelers and fans in the process.

Bolt, who has a girlfriend of two years at home in Jamaica who he calls his ‘First Lady’, also attracted the attention of 20-year-old Duarte who shared photos of herself in bed with the superstar on Whatsapp early Sunday morning.
The intimate photos show the star curled up in bed with  the student at 7am local time, Sunday.

Duarte (pictured), who claims she didn’t know Bolt is famous seem to be making the most of it though. She appears in two photos next to Bolt, that have been published on several Brazilian websites

However, Duarte wasn’t the only woman to catch Bolt’s eye last night – a video posted to Twitter showed him twerking enthusiastically with another local girl during his evening out.
He sang and danced just hours after earning three Olympic gold medals. The first man to threepeat the triple in the Olympic sprints, Bol has now completed the triple, as he won the 100 meters, the 200 meters and the 4×100-meter relay in 2008 in Beijing and 2012 in London.
Meanwhile his sister had just revealed that Bolt had a long-term girlfriend – 26-year-old Kasi Bennett.
Bolt and Bennett have been dating for more than two years and were likely to get engaged soon, according to Christine Bolt-Hylton.
But Bennett shared a cryptic tweet on Sunday. Someone commented on the world ‘discovering’ Bolt’s girlfriend, saying Bennett was ‘hot’.
Bennett replied: ‘I wish there was no discovery, but thank you so much. That’s really sweet of you.’
Bolt made an early exit from Rio Sunday night – departing a day earlier than planned and missing the Closing Ceremony entirely.

Rumour has it Bolt and Kasi Bennett were likely to get engaged soon

The Jamaican sprinter was seen heading for the departure lounge at Rio’s Galeo International Airport an hour before the event got underway at 8pm local time.
His last tweet before departing Rio read in Portuguese: ‘We came, we saw, we conquered. Rio I have endless love for you.’

Bolt had also been expected to attend a party in his honor at the Jamaica hospitality house but the event was canceled due to bad weather, with an apologetic note left pinned to the railings outside.
The early departure of the 30-year-old means the Games concludes with almost no big name stars in attendance, with Michael Phelps and Sir Bradley Wiggins already back on home soil.
Bolt is flying home to a hero’s welcome in Kingston – and has had a reggae song called ‘Bolt the Champion’ composed in his honor.
The sprinter, who will now retire from Olympic competition following the Games, is expected to take on an ambassadorial role in athletics and has also signed a lifetime contract with Nike thought to be worth an estimated $30m a year.
However, the Jamaican champ has had no special treatment during the Rio Games, sharing a room in an Athlete’s Village with team mate Asafa Powell for most of the event.
Prior to the Opening Ceremony, he and his Jamaica team mates were put up in a low-cost hotel close to Galeo International airport, where rooms go for as little as $136 a night.
The only luxury at the Linx Hotel was the services of a Jamaican chef, flown in especially to provide the Olympic star and his team mates with food fit for champions.

Pat Hickey, former Olympic judoka and Ireland’s Olympic Chairman,  is arrested by cops over ‘illegal ticket selling’ at Rio 2016 Olympics

Pat Hickey Ireland’s olympic executive

The issue of ticketing has blighted the Games. Is this why there are so many empty seats.

Pat Hickey – the head of the Irish European Olympic Councils – was arrested by police over illegal ticket selling at the Rio 2016 Olympics.

Hickey was held at one of the ‘Olympic Family’ hotels in Barra da Tijuca this morning – as the scandal engulfing his organisation continues.

Then last week an executive was arrested alleged to be holding “hundreds of tickets” designated to Ireland – causing outrage back home.

Hickey faces three charges of facilitating ticket touting, formation of a cartel and ambush or illicit marketing – and tonight it emerged he is “temporarily” standing down from roles in international sports governance.

Then last week an executive was arrested alleged to be holding “hundreds of tickets” designated to Ireland – causing outrage back home.

Hickey faces three charges of facilitating ticket touting, formation of a cartel and ambush or illicit marketing – and tonight it emerged he is “temporarily” standing down from roles in international sports governance.

During a press conference this afternoon Brazilian police said that when they arrived at hotel room, his wife told them that Hickey had left the country.

However video footage captured by ESPN Brazil shows the moment the 71-year-old rep was confronted by Brazilian police – after they tracked him down to another room in the hotel.

Pat Hickey’s arrest took place at about 10am UK time – 6am in Brazil.

Local media have reported that Hickey has since been taken to hospital “after feeling sick the moment he got arrested”.

Kevin Mallon, an executive for sports hospitality company THG, was arrested last week allegedly holding hundreds of tickets marked for the Olympic Council of Ireland.

An executive for sports hospitality company THG, he was arrested with hundreds of tickets marked for the Olympic Council of Ireland.

THG does not have a permit to sell Irish Olympic tickets but an official company, Pro 10, said Mallon was working for them and did have a letter of accreditation.

 

Foot in mouth disease: Hope Solo puts her foot in it again after US women lose to Sweden in the Olympic soccer semi’s – Congrats US ladies, you still rock

Hope Solo almost ruins the day for the US ladies by being ungracious in defeat….

“But I also think we played a bunch of cowards,” – Solo

When asked to clarify her comments Solo said

“Sweden dropped off,”  “They didn’t want to open play. They didn’t want to pass the ball. They didn’t want to play great soccer. It was a combative game, a physical game. Exactly what they wanted and exactly what their game plan was.”
“I don’t think they’re going to make it far in the tournament,” she added. “I think it was very cowardly. But they won. They’re moving on, and we’re going home.”

One goalie let in goals, the other made saves during the penalty shoot out. One turned ugly after the match. Guess who?

Solo shows no class ‘ wins the gold medal for being an obnoxious guest’

Controversial US goalie goes on an epic sore-loser rant after the Americans lost to Sweden in the Olympic quarterfinals Friday.

Calls victorious Swedish women’s soccer team a “bunch of cowards”

Hope Solo8.png

Hope Solo shows her ugly American side when she rips into the Swedish team they knocked the U.S. women’s team out of yhe olympics

Hope Solo who dropped to howlers against the colombian team in last group game, unleashed an epic sore-loser rant after the Americans lost to Sweden in the Olympic quarterfinals Friday: “But I also think we played a bunch of cowards,” after the Americans lost to Sweden in the Olympic quarterfinals Friday.
The outspoken Solo, already on the wrong side of Brazilian fans unhappy with her social media posts making light of the country’s medical crisis, has been jeered with chants of “Zika” throughout the Olympics by the angry fans, but rather than paying tribute to the victorious Swedish squad, denounced the winners as a “bunch of cowards.”
“I thought that we played a courageous game,” Solo told reporters after the shocking defeat. “I thought we had many opportunities on goal. I think we showed a lot of heart. We came back from a goal down. I’m very proud of this team.”
The three-time defending champion U.S. women’s national team will miss the Olympic final for the first time since womens soccer was introduced as an olympic event in 1996. They were ousted by Sweden on penalties following a 1-1 draw in the quarterfinals on Friday.

Tied after three rounds in the shootout, Sweden captain Caroline Seger beat Hope Solo and Christen Press’ attempt against Hedvig Lindhal went over the net. After a bit of gamesmanship, Lisa Dahlkvist beat an outstretched Solo with the last kick, for the win.
As the Swedes celebrated, U.S. captain Carli Lloyd crouched on the pitch at the Mane Garrincha Stadium. It was the first time that an Olympic women’s match had gone to penalties and the earliest the US women had ever been eliminated from Olympic soccer.
After launching into “I thought that we played a courageous game,” The trouble-seeking goalkeeper went on to put her foot in her mouth.
“But I also think we played a bunch of cowards,” Solo added.
“The best team did not win today. I strongly believe that. I think you saw American heart. You saw us give everything we had today.”
Solo spoke out after the U.S. lost in penalty kicks to a Swedish team that the top-ranked Americans were heavily favored to beat.

The Swedes, after withstanding waves of American attacks, scored the opening goal in the 61st minute. The U.S. team drew level 16 minutes later when striker Alex Morgan tucked in a ball which fell kindly to her, off a Swedish defender.
The Swedish team clinched the victory when Lisa Dahlkvist beat Solo in the fifth stage of penalty kicks after American winger Christen Press sent her shot over the crossbar.
The loss marked the first time the vaunted U.S. women’s soccer team failed to advance to the semifinals of a major tournament.
Asked to clarify her comments after the game, Solo didn’t hold back.
“Sweden dropped off,” she said. “They didn’t want to open play. They didn’t want to pass the ball. They didn’t want to play great soccer. It was a combative game, a physical game. Exactly what they wanted and exactly what their game plan was.”
“I don’t think they’re going to make it far in the tournament,” she added. “I think it was very cowardly. But they won. They’re moving on, and we’re going home.”

Hope Solo2.jpgDefending champions, the U.S. team fail in the bid to retain Olympic soccer gold

Sweden coach Pia Sundhage, who helmed the U.S. national team from 2008-2012 during which the women won two gold medals, quickly fired back at her former goalkeeper.
“I don’t give a crap,” Sundhage said, according to Swedish website Sportsbladet. “I’m going to Rio, she’s going home.”
Swedish goalie Hedvig Lindahl slammed Solo for her late-game stall tactics when the American changed her gloves before Sweden’s final shooter.
“What she did was an act of panic,” Lindahl said.
Solo, who has been jeered with chants of “Zika” throughout the Olympics by angry Brazilian fans unhappy with her social media posts making light of the country’s medical crisis,has always courted controversy.
She was suspended by U.S. Soccer for 30 days leading up to the 2015 Women’s World Cup after she and her husband took a joy ride in a team van during a California training camp. Solo’s husband, Jerramy Stevens, pleaded no contest to driving the van while intoxicated. Solo was along for the ride on Jan. 19, 2015 and nearly got busted for disorderly conduct.
“I apologize for disappointing my teammates, coaches and the Federation who have always supported me,” Solo said at the time.

Magnet for controversy: Hope Solo’s off field antics includes a 2014 arraignment for domestic abuse against her half-sister and nephew

She was reinstated in late February, missing no significant games, and then helped the U.S. win the Women’s World Cup in Canada in July.
Solo was arrested in 2014 and charged with two counts of domestic violence after an incident involving her half-sister and nephew in suburban Seattle. The charges were eventually dismissed on procedural grounds.
After the US was booted ouf the World Cup semis in China in 2007, her big mouth also got her temporarily booted from the U.S. national team after she called out then head coach Greg Ryan who benched her for the semi-finals against Brazil
“It was the wrong decision,” Solo said of her benching, “and I think that anybody knows anything about the game knows that.”
Ryan opted for veteran Briana Scurry and it backfired as the U.S. suffered a 4-0 loss.
“There’s no doubt in my mind I would have made those saves. … You have to live in the present. And you can’t live by big names. You can’t live in the past.”

 

Naija in charge: 7 hours after landing in Rio, Nigeria men’s soccer team beats Japan after landing in Brazil – Summer Olympics opener, well done

The Nigerian men’s soccer team didn’t show any fatigue from a last-minute trip that brought the players to Brazil just hours before their Rio Olympics opener, beating Japan 5-4 Thursday night.

A mix-up at the airport forced Nigeria to make a late flight from Atlanta to Brazil. The team arrived in the jungle city of Manaus about six hours before overcoming jet leg and the heat and humidity in the Amazon city to win a thrilling game.

The team’s spokesman posted a picture on Twitter of the team boarding the plane with the message “here we go” and later displayed images of members going through immigration and collecting luggage.

The team faced the uncomfortable situation of spending the day of its debut at the Olympics aboard an airplane on a more than six-hour flight and facing a Japan team that was in Brazil for several days preparing for the contest.

Bunmi Jinadu, founder of United Soccer Africa, disputed reports that the team missed its original flight because of a money issue between the Nigerian government and a charter company. Delta Air Lines cited a “communications mix-up” that grounded the team’s original Friday flight.

 

The flight the team finally boarded was on a chartered Delta jet. A spokesperson for Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines said it stepped in to help the team get to its destination — free of charge — after learning of the flight issue.

Spain’s Ronaldo Injured out of  in Euro 2016 Final vs. France

Portugal final game for the European title has taken quite a turn and has not gone as planned against France.

Cristiano Ronaldo was injured in the opening minutes Sunday, colliding with French midfielder Dimitri Payet in the knee area.

Ronaldo’s knee buckled, and he was able to resume the match but lacked his usual quickness and seemed to be in a lot of pain. Another collision minutes later put him back on the ground, this time with trainers and teammates surrounding him.

Ronaldo was unable to finish the match, and was subbed out by Ricardo Quaresma.

Ronaldo has nine goals in his Euro career, tied for the competition record set by France’s Michael Platini.

A butterfly came down to the field while Ronaldo was down, landing on his eyelash while he tended to his knee. Comforting

Learning to Roar: The John McEnroe effect on Milos Raonic’s Wimbledon run – brilliant

…John McEnroe’s  effect on Raonic’s game has been pretty impressive. Enough for tennis fans like us to notice. John you should be doing more coaching, you are  pretty good at it. The impact of john’s input just one month into toughening  Milos mental game seems to be the secret ingredient Raonic needed to beat Roger Federer and reach the final of Wimbledon.

John McEnroe eight-time slam major champion, with three titles at Wimbledon, McEnroe has the job of fortifying Raonic’s mental resolve. This partnership has worked pretty well this fortnight. “Milos is a good kid,” McEnroe said. “He’s very professional, very dedicated, and he wants to get better.”

johnJohn McEnroe and Carlos Moya

John McEnroe is one of three coaches on Milos Raoni’s team including Carlos Moya and Riccardo Piatti the coaching team lead.

The personalities

Raonic being a little laid back, the personality clash may appear jarring but quite intriguing: where McEnroe is rebellious and combustible, his pupil is by nature more reticent and tactful. But they have dovetailed neatly here, with the McEnroe imprint nowhere so evident as in the Canadian’s brilliant comeback to beat Federer.

milos

A week after they began working together, Raonic finished runner-up to Andy Murray at Queen’s Club. McEnroe has helped with his mental approach, Raonic told The Guardian. “He definitely keeps emphasising demeanour on court, which I probably would not have put as one of the priorities.” Raonic was visibly more vocal in his semi-final win over Federer, which is another point of the game McEnroe has emphasized. “He’s definitely put an emphasis on it,” Raonic told The Guardian. “I felt in matches that I need to sort of calm myself down. I feel like when I get positive, I can get negative quickly as well.” Following Raonic’s win on Friday, McEnroe said the combination of emotion, skill and strategy led to his success. “He showed a lot of heart out there, a lot of fight. He found another gear I don’t even think he knew he had. He had some quality shots, huge forehands, you name it, he put it all together at the right moment.”

Raonic appointed McEnroe as an additional coach last month, in an effort to improve his grass court game leading up to Wimbledon. His training team is led by the Italian coach Riccardo Piatti and former Spanish world number one Carlos Moya. “He’s been here on this Centre Court playing the final, winning three times,”  “He’s a guy that knows a lot about tennis, is very well respected and probably the best serve and volleyer ever. He’s adding things to the team and he’s bringing good energy.” Moya brings a calmness to Raonic’s coaching team, while Piatti has been a strong presence.

Serena Williams is leaving Wimbledon with two trophies today after teaming up with her older sister Venus to win the women’s doubles final – just hours after collecting the singles title.

The pair won their sixth doubles championship at the All England Club by beating Timea Babos of Hungary and Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan 6-3, 6-4.

Their triumph comes just hours after Serena Williams beat Angelique Kerber of Germany and secured her 22nd Grand Slam title – making history by drawing her level with Steffi Graf as the joint-most successful women in tennis in the Open Era

 

Chocolatey Goodness, Serena Williams Ft on WSJ magazine edition, strong, powerful, beautiful …

34 year old Serena Williams covers the magazine edition of WSJ – the Wall Street Journal where she is in variations of  white clothing playing off her chocolate skin – interesting

In the magazine, she opened up on her twerking cameo for Beyonce’s single Sorry. She said “I’ve known Bey for a long time,”

And accordingly, she was a good friend by keeping the album a secret. “If you tell me, ‘Don’t say anything,’ I won’t say anything,” she said.

She says all the dancing made her really sore. Surprising for a woman who is unstoppable force on the court.

Janoris Jenkins, 27, NY Giant’s cornerback claps back at his baby mamas ‘not a penny more’ – Responds to child support increase request following his $62m NY Giants deal

Janoris Jenkins, 27, NFL cornerback signed $62 millionfive-year deal March 2016,  Baby mamas, La’Tasha Jones and Lakenya Campbel filed a “supplemental petition for modification” a month later

Both women entered into a paternity settlement in 2013 with NFL player Janoris Jenkins, for $4000 a month in child support.

Demands – In addition to modified child support payments, Jenkins “to pay for private school and all related expenses for the child”
 “Increase the face amount of life insurance Father is required to carry to secure his child support obligation commensurate with the new child support award.”
 “adjust the responsibilities of the Parties with regard to payment of extracurricular activities…”
 “an upward deviation of 5% based upon Father’s failure to spend any time with the child.”

Jenkins’ response – “Father denies there has been a substantial change of circumstances since the entry of the Final Judgment [in 2013]; and that there has been a substantial increase in his income.”

NFL cornerback, Janoris Jenkins responded to the move by his baby mamas to get a larger piece of his newly penned 5-year $62 million deal with the New  York Giants with a resounding ‘NO’.
In response to two Florida women, who each have a child with Jenkins, filing petitions in Florida state court earlier this year seeking increased child support payments and other benefits, Jenkins, 27, filed his own “answer to mother’s supplemental petition for modification” and said his economic bracket has not changed dramatically. In his court filings Jenkins responds:
“Father denies there has been a substantial change of circumstances since the entry of the Final Judgment; and that there has been a substantial increase in his income,” reads Jenkins’ court filing in both cases. The “Final Judgment” refers to the paternity settlement agreement Jenkins and the women reached in 2013.
“Father denies that all relief requested in this petition should be ordered temporarily in this action,” the court filing says.

janoris jenkins2.jpg
Earlier this year La’Tasha Jones and Lakenya Campbell, each whom have one child with Jenkins, filed a “supplemental petition for modification” although both women entered into a paternity settlement in 2013 with Jenkins for $4000 a month in child support.
In addition to modified child support payments, Jones requests for Jenkins “to pay for private school and all related expenses for the child,” additionally requesting that Jenkins “increase the face amount of life insurance Father is required to carry to secure his child support obligation commensurate with the new child support award.”
Jones also asks to “adjust the responsibilities of the Parties with regard to payment of extracurricular activities…”
Campbell requests similar modifications, but she asks that her child support payments include “an upward deviation of 5% based upon Father’s failure to spend any time with the child.”
A third woman, Sontaevia Armstrong, it is reported requested similar increases in benefits for her two children with Jenkins, as well as a new home in a “man-guarded and gated community,” in Florida.
Campbell whose child was born in 2010 and Jones who had her child in 2009,  filed their petitions in Palm Beach County in April and May, respectively, while Jenkins’ filed his response June 6.

8 Russians athletes from the London Olympics fail doping reanalysis – former head of Russian lab: ‘I switched tainted urine samples for clean ones at the doping lab to beat doping tests’

‘8 Russians athletes at London Olympics  doping test’ 

-Russian Olympic Committee


F
ormer head of the Russian lab claims he switched tainted urine samples for clean ones at doping lab used for the Sochi Games, with help from officers of the Russian security services.

IOC announced 23 athletes from five sports and six countries failed retests with improved techniques on 265 samples from tLondon Games

IOC retests aimed at sportsmen hoping to compete at the Rio olympics – 31 athletes could be barred from this year’s games

 

olympic_doping2President of the Russian Olympic Committee Alexander Zhukov

Russia’s Olympic Committee said Saturday that eight of the country’s athletes have registered positive in doping retests for the 2012 London Games.
The brief statement from the ROC did not give names or what disciplines the athletes were in, but said they came from three different sports.
It said further information would not be released until so-called “B samples” were tested that would confirm or contradict the retests. The International Olympic Committee stores Olympic doping samples for 10 years to reanalyze them when newer methods become available.
The announcement came amid heightened attention to the doping of Russian athletes.
The international track and field federation suspended Russia’s team from global competition, including the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in August, after a World Anti-Doping Agency commission report detailed state-sponsored doping. The IAAF is set to decide on June 17 whether to maintain or lift its suspension.
Earlier this week, Russian state television reported that 10 medallists from the 2008 Beijing Olympics, including 2012 high jump champion Anna Chicherova, were among 14 Russians that tested positive in the reanalysis of their doping samples.
The IOC said Friday that 23 athletes from five sports and six countries had positive findings in retests with improved techniques on 265 samples from the London Games. The IOC did not identify the athletes, their sports or their nationalities. The current retesting program targeted athletes who could be eligible to compete in Rio.

The World Anti-Doping Agency announced this month that it has appointed an independent overseer for an investigation into allegations of state-sponsored doping in the Russian team at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

In an interview published in the New York Times, Grigory Rodchenkov, the former head of the Russian lab now living in Los Angeles, said that he switched tainted urine samples for clean ones at the doping lab used for the Sochi Games, with help from people he believed to be officers of the Russian security services.
Awarded the prestigious Order of Friendship by President Vladimir V. Putin, after Sochi, Dr. Rodchenkov had to flee Russia in November, 2015 as the World Anti-Doping Agency identified him as the linchpin in what it described as an extensive state-sponsored doping program in Russia He was accused of extorting money from athletes, as well as covering up positive drug tests and destroying hundreds of urine samples.
Rodchenkov claims , Russian officials forced him to resign after the report, fearing for his safety, he moved to Los Angeles. However, two of his colleagues died unexpectedly in February, within weeks of each other; both were former antidoping officials, one who of whom resigned soon after Dr. Rodchenkov fled the country.

The Russian olympic Committee had retested ten medalists from the 2008 Beijing Olympics, including 2012 high jump champion Anna Chicherova, were among 14 Russians that tested positive in the reanalysis of their doping samples, state television reported Tuesday.  11 of the 14 athletes oaffected were from track and field, including 4×100-meter relay gold medalist Yulia Chermoshanskaya. The others are two weightlifters and a rower.

Separately, the Russian track federation said it would ban former dopers from the upcoming Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in the hope of getting its team reinstated for the games. The IAAF suspended the track federation from global competition after a World Anti-Doping Agency commission report detailed state-sponsored doping.
“No potential participant in the Olympic Games who has been caught taking banned substances in previous years can be a member of the Russian national Olympic team in Rio de Janeiro,” the federation said in a statement.
It said it took “such a tough decision with one aim – to do everything so that clean athletes could take part in the 2016 Olympic Games.”
Two Russian gold medalists in race walking, Elena Lashmanova and Olga Kaniskina, would be affected by the new rule, as would former world champion walker Sergei Kirdyapkin, who was stripped of his 2012 Olympic gold for doping. All three were due to be eligible to compete in Rio. The IAAF will rule next month whether to maintain or lift its ban.
The list of 14 also includes Chicherova, who won the high jump bronze in Beijing before winning gold at the 2012 London Games.
Silver medal winners whose doping retests reportedly came back positive are javelin thrower Maria Abakumova, 4×400 relay runners Anastasia Kapachinskaya and Tatiana Firova, and weightlifter Maria Shainova, the report said.
Bronze medalists included Ekaterina Volkova in the 3,000 steeplechase, men’s 4×400 relay team member Denis Alexeyev, race walker Denis Nizhegorodov and weightlifter Nadezhda Yevstukhina.

Russia’s Olympic silver medal winner Denis Nizhegorodov is reportedly one of 14 Russian athletes who competed in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, who tested positive in the reanalysis of their doping samples.

The IOC said last week that 31 athletes could be barred from this year’s Olympics in Rio de Janeiro after being caught in the reanalysis of Beijing samples. It said the athletes came from six sports and 12 countries, but declined to give names, citing legal reasons.
Before reallocating any medals, it would retest samples of any athletes who stand to move up in the medals

Oh Maria: Mariah Sharapova may ‘never’ play professional tennis again, after failing drug test

After failed drugs test during January’s Australian Open, Maria Sharapova 29, may not play again, says Russian official

Maria Sharapova may never play tennis again after testing positive for banned substance meldonium 

Russian sport chief, Shamil Tarpishchev –  ‘the situation is “bad,”  Sharapova may never play tennis again’

Five-time Grand Slam winner facing upto 4 years ban

article
Russian sport chief, Shamil Tarpishchev: Sharapova is in a “bad situation.”  It is “very doubtful” she will play again

Former world number one Maria Sharapova may never play again following her failed drugs test, the president of the Russian Tennis Federation says.
The Russian, 29, tested positive for meldonium at January’s Australian Open.
When asked if Sharapova would play any more tournaments, Shamil Tarpishchev told R-Sport news agency it was “very doubtful” and added the five-time Grand Slam winner was in a “bad situation”.
When She made the announcement in January, Sharapova, the world’s highest-paid sportswoman claimed to have been taking meldonium on doctor’s orders for 10 years and had failed to note that it had become a banned substance until hearing of her failed test at the year’s first grand slam.

After her January announcement Sharapova was provisionally suspended in March pending the hearing, and has lost some lucrative sponsorship deals. Now could be out for good

She was provisionally suspended on March 12 pending the hearing, and has lost a number of her lucrative sponsorship deals, Sharapova countered saying she was “determined to play tennis again”.
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) said in April, after hundreds of athletes had tested positive for meldonium, that bans might be overturned due to a lack of clear scientific information on how long the drug takes to be excreted.
The International Tennis Federation (ITF) provisionally suspended Sharapova on 12 March.
She is waiting to hear the full extent of her punishment, which could be as much as a four-year ban, although experts say a six-month or 12-month suspension is more likely.
That is because the World Anti-Doping Association (Wada) admitted in April that scientists were unsure how long meldonium stayed in the system. It even suggested athletes who tested positive for the substance before 1 March could avoid bans, provided they had stopped taking it before 1 January. However, Sharapova has already admitted she continued taking meldonium past that date, saying she was unaware it had been added to the banned list as she knew it by another name, mildronate.

Unstopable Dean Karnazes: Can jog for 3 days without stopping

Dean suffers from a condition which clears the lactate buildup in his body at a very fast rate as compared to other runners.

Every athlete has a limit. Scientifically, this limit is defined as the body’s lactate threshold and when you exercise beyond it, running rapidly becomes unpleasant. We’ve all experienced that burning feeling – heart pounding, lungs gasping for air – as your muscles begin to fatigue, eventually locking up altogether as your body shuts down. However, there is one man whose physiological performance defies all convention: Dean Karnazes is an ultrarunner from California and, at times, it seems as if he can run for ever.

Karnazes has completed some of the toughest endurance events on the planet, from a marathon to the South Pole in temperatures of -25C to the legendary Marathon des Sables, but in his entire life he has never experienced any form of muscle burn or cramp, even during runs exceeding 100 miles. It means his only limits are in the mind.

“At a certain level of intensity, I do feel like I can go a long way without tiring,” he says. “No matter how hard I push, my muscles never seize up. That’s kind of a nice thing if I plan to run a long way.”

“To be honest, what eventually happens is that I get sleepy. I’ve run through three nights without sleep and the third night of sleepless running was a bit psychotic. I actually experienced bouts of ‘sleep running’, where I was falling asleep while in motion, and I just willed myself to keep going.”

Dean-karnazes

While years of running can help to improve an athlete’s lactic acid threshold, Karnazes’ abilities come from his unique, innate ability to flush his body during exercise.

He also believes that his very low body fat, and his high alkaline, paleo-style diet also helps his superhuman running skills.

Karnazes, who regularly runs the equivalent of a marathon before breakfast, said his focus is always on endurance.

‘I don’t care how fast I go,’ he told IE. ‘I care about how far I go.’

Milla Bizzotto, 9, is Saying N0 to bullying: Miami 9-year-old girl finishes day-long Navy SEAL obstacle course race, trains for more extreme races in quest against bullying

…good luck girl

A 9-year-old Miami girl is running in extreme races that would crush most men and women twice her age.

Four-foot, 53-pound third grader Milla Bizzotto finished a 24-hour obstacle course race designed by former Navy SEALs after working out under her fitness trainer father

Now, she’s getting ready for more head-spinning feats in her inspiring personal fight against the bullying she said drove her to become a super athlete.

“I don’t want to play Minecraft. I don’t want a hoverboard. I don’t want things to make life easier,” Milla said in a YouTube video of her training. “I want to be comfortable being uncomfortable. I have one body and it is all I want and love.”

Bizzotto helped start a local gym called the Fitness Movement Academy, where Milla began to train with him in June after some of her classmates told her she wasn’t good at sports. She finished a BattleFrog 15K race in November and a Spartan Sprint race the following month.

“I do racing to inspire kids that they have a special side of them and to get them off the couch,” .

marine31n-4-web

She trains for three hours every weekday and gets regular medical advice from a sports medicine doctor. She’s about to take on an invitation-only paddle board and running event in Miami called the Athlete Race and another Spartan Race in Hawaii later in the summer.

Milla posted a thank-you note Tuesday to GoFundMe supporters who donated over $1,700 toward her shoes, hydration pack and other equipment. She told the Herald she’s ready for the next challenge.

“I want to inspire a generation,” Milla said. “I don’t get bullied anymore. I know how to stand up for myself now. And I love what I do. I want to do it forever.”

Tyson Fury, World Boxing heavyweight Champion on a foul-mouthed rant about Jews, rape and bestiality

As his rematch with Vladimir Klitschko approaches, Champion Tyson fury launches a demented tirade about Jews, rape and bestiality

Fury makes the comments on video

He said: “It’s like you’re a freak of nature if you’re normal, you’re the odd one out nobody else. “What’s normal? I’ll just get myself changed into a woman that’s normal isn’t it today call myself Tysina or something like that, put a wig on…”
“I don’t think it’s normal I think they’re freaks of nature.”
He also appears to be critical of Jews, saying: “Everyone just do what you can, listen to the government follow everybody like sheep, be brainwashed by all the Zionist, Jewish people who own all the banks, all the papers all the TV stations. Be brainwashed by them all.”
And he continues: “I think it’ll be perfectly normal in the next ten years to have sexual relationships with your animals at home you know your pets your cats and dogs and all that so that will be legal.

“You are already allowed to marry your animals and stuff.
“It is going to happen though, isn’t it? Whatever you can think of that’s bad, will be made legal, because that’s what the devil wants.”
The interview, which was posted on YouTube and the SportsViewLondon website, appears to be conducted with his uncle and trainer Peter Fury.
Fury, 27, dressed in black tracksuit, appears relaxed and lounges on a settee as he talks about the up-coming clash with Klitschko, 40 in Manchester in July.
But he soon starts firing off expletives as he rages about all the thing he finds offensive in the world.

Tyson Fury
Fury will face Klitschko in July

When asked why he has never been backed by 75% of the British public, he says: “I just think it’s because I’m a believer in the Lord.
“People hate that so they don’t want to hear it so they all come together and talk bull**** it doesn’t matter does it because those that stand fast shall be rewarded.”
He says his views are seen as “draconian”.
“Draconian, living in ancient times where we don’t like women to be whores opening their legs for every Tom, Dick and Harry, we don’t s*** men, we don’t s*** kids, if that’s draconian then I suppose I like being a draconian. They should call me Tyson ‘Dracula’ fury because I’m still living in those times.”
He adds: “I think it’ll be perfectly normal in the next ten years to have sexual relationships with your animals at home you know your pets your cats and dogs and all that so that will be legal.

“You are already allowed to marry your animals and stuff.
“It is going to happen though isn’t it. Whatever you can think of that’s bad, will be made legal, because that’s what the devil wants.
“So if you want to s*** your animals…..it will be made legal.
“In a world that’s changing it’s morals daily and lowering the bar of daily morals then it is ok to do all this sort of stuff.
“I can’t think of anything that is that bad it wouldn’t be allowed to happen.”

deontay-wilder-v-artur-szpilkaFury has come under-fire for his comments

He rages about “plastic dolls that look like children so perverts can s*** them”.
And he adds: “The world has gone mad, there is no morals there is no loyalty there is no nothing.
“Everyone just do what you can, listen to the government follow everybody like sheep, be brainwashed by all the Zionist, Jewish people who own all the banks, all the papers all the TV stations. Be brainwashed by them all.
“Maybe they might start making it legal so that four or five men can grab a granny and rape her in public in front of kids and all that. Or grab an old man and rape him.”

Getting into his stride, Fury says: “Listen to what filth is going on.
“You’ve got men s******* men then going home and s******* the girlfriend, the girlfriend leaves him then goes to somebody else….somebody else s**** her because she’s obviously going to have a hundred partners isn’t she, minimum that’s the right thing to do, so all she’s doing is spreading these diseases, day in and out for everybody else.
“Women are even taking overnight bags out with them, so they are going out just to get laid. Just like men usually do. Women are worse than that.
“They are taking their overnight bags because they know they are going to pull somebody and get at it that night. Filth, pure filth.
“I think we should make a group, a loyalist group to the normal thing in life, just to be normal. It’s like you’re a freak of nature if you’re normal, you’re the odd one out, nobody else What is normal?

“And call myself Tysina or something like that, 6’9’, put a wig on…. you know what I mean, because I want to feel like what it feels like to be s******.
“What is the need of all this s***? It’s all in fashion. I don’t think it’s normal I think they’re freaks of nature.”
He adds: “I’m probably going to get in a lot of trouble for this interview for talking sense and the truth, but there’s a lot of balls-less men, balls-less people out there that haven’t got the b******* to stand up and say something about it.
“I tell you what we are on the development stage of, the end of the world. It can’t keep going on like this, so bent, dirty, corrupt and filthy, everything you see is porn.
“There is a lot of bad things going on in the world and I can only just name a handful of them. But if we only knew the truth about what was going on, we could all be set free and we could all learn from our mistakes.

“It’s hard to follow religion in today’s world because you’re a freak of nature if you follow religion.
“If you follow what it tells you to follow. Because you’re the outcast. You can’t do all the things you think you might want to do.
“In the schools now they’re asking the little kids at five and six do they want to be a boy or girl when they get older, what the f*** is that?
“I think it’s terrible to open an innocent child’s eyes to dirt and filth at young ages, all this sex education and all that, as kids.“Kids need to be kept innocent for as long as possible because there is that much dirt and filth in the world and rubbish.
“There is a long, long time to know about all the s*** in the world, never mind teaching it to pure innocents, God’s children. Terrible, very terrible.”

He said other papers had already been banned from the Tyson Fury camp and added: “It you want to be on that list, you go ahead and print what you want to print.
“I’ve no time for this. Thank you very much, bye bye.”

Contagion ‘He is a walking bag of infections’: Top Baseball player sued for knowingly spreading STDs

Carlos Martinez is in the midst of a solid start to the season for St. Louis with a 4-1 record while pitching to a 2.60 ERA.

Woman in $1.5 million lawsuit, alleges Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez knowingly gave her STDs

Claims on-and-off romantic relationship with Martinez since 2012

The two reconnected last year and began having sex again in Dec.

The woman said she began to feel ill two days later and later tested positive for multiple STDs.

A porn-loving Cardinals pitcher is being accused of knowingly transmitting STDs to his partner. Carlos Martinez is the subject of a $1.5 million civil suit wherein his on-again, off-again lover claims that she tested positive for STDs in the days following a December tryst.
Martinez’s attorney says “I can tell you most assuredly the allegations are 100 percent false.”
The Cardinals are aware of the case and Martinez made his scheduled start for St. Louis on Sunday, suffering his first loss of the season.
“My understanding is that he and his attorney are working on it,” general manager John Mozeliak told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
The lawsuit filed in Miami seeks more than $1.5 million and accuses the pitcher of a negligent transmission of a sexual transmitted disease. It seeks actual and special damages along with mental anguish and exemplary damages. It also seeks punitive damages because of outrageous actions. His accuser is from West Palm Beach, Fla., not far from the Cardinals’ spring training home in Jupiter. According to TMZ, she told the court that Martinez “swore to God that he was not infected with any sexually transmitted disease.”
Two years ago, the Cardinals had to give the randy righthander a talking to about his Twitter account. Martinez, then 22, had a habit of favoriting pornographic images from his account, which were there for every Cardinals fan to see. The club  censured Martinez stating: “We are, like it or not, role models.”
“Regardless of your moral compass and where it points, those sorts of things that we’re talking about are not things we want our kids seeing.”

At 5,000 to 1 odds of winning, Leicester Wins the premier league title in style .

Whoa!!! Congratulations.

Leicester City have won the Premier League title in one of the greatest sporting stories of all time.

Tottenham’s 2-2 draw at Chelsea on Monday confirmed a stunning achievement for Claudio Ranieri’s side.

Leicester started the campaign as 5,000-1 outsiders for the title after almost being relegated last season.

After Leicester drew 1-1 at Manchester United on Sunday, Tottenham needed to win all three of their remaining league games to catch the Foxes.

But their title hopes were ended when they squandered a 2-0 lead to only draw at London rivals Chelsea.
