Kidnapped Duke Crew Members Released, One Dies in Captivity

first_imgNineteen crew members of the oil tanker Duke, who were kidnapped by pirates off Benin in mid-December 2019, have been released while one seafarer died in captivity.“(W)e can confirm that 19 of the crew members taken hostage were released by the criminal gang holding them,” Union Maritime and V.Ships Management (India), the ship’s owner and manager, confirmed in a statement.“It is with great regret that we have to report that one valued crew member, an Able Seaman, was evidently taken ill and died shortly after capture.”The companies added that they were seeking further information from the released sailors and that a full investigation into the seafarer’s death would be launched.As informed, the nineteen crew members have undergone medical checks and are reported to be well. They will soon return home to their families.As World Maritime News reported last month, the sailors, all Indian nationals, were kidnapped some 110 nautical miles off the coast of Benin after the 19,100 dwt Duke had been attacked and boarded by six pirates.Following the attack, a Togolese naval patrol boat made contact with the vessel and escorted new sea-staff that resumed command of the 2003-built ship.last_img read more

Man City to learn fate of Champions League ban appeal today

first_imgLosing such a high-profile case would also cause major embarrassment to the legacy of the City project.It is no secret that one of the major motivations behind the billions invested is to promote a positive image of Abu Dhabi around the world.But the stakes are also high for European football’s governing body.Qatari-owned Paris Saint-Germain have already successfully won an appeal at CAS against UEFA reopening a FFP investigation into the French champions.The system which limits clubs to not losing more than 30 million euros with exceptions for some costs such as youth development and women’s teams over a three-year period has helped cut debt across European football.But its detractors point to the fact it maintains the status quo with traditional giants like Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich always enjoying bigger budgets thanks to their large global fanbases.Guardiola embarrassed by treatment of black peopleRead Also:  Man City striker out of Real Madrid Champions League clashShould UEFA lose another case, questions will be asked over how effectively FFP can ever be enforced at the highest level of the game.The decision from CAS is expected at 0830GMT Monday.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Manchester City’s Abu-Dhabi project and the future of UEFA’s financial fair play (FFP) rules face a pivotal day today, July 13, when the Court of Arbitration for Sport delivers its verdict on City’s appeal against a two-season ban from European competitions. The stakes could not be higher for the English side, who have always strongly denied any wrongdoing over allegations they deliberately inflated the value of income from sponsors with links to the Abu Dhabi United Group, also owned by City owner Sheikh Mansour, to avoid falling foul of FFP regulations between 2012 and 2016. In February, UEFA imposed a fine of 30 million euros ($32 million, £25 million) on City as well as suspending them from European competitions for the next two seasons. “Today we achieved qualification for the Champions League mathematically,” said coach Pep Guardiola on Saturday after a 5-0 rout of Brighton which cemented second-place in the Premier League. “We deserve to be there because we won it on the pitch. Hopefully on Monday, UEFA can allow us to play as this team and these players deserve to.” Since Sheikh Mansour’s takeover 12 years ago, City’s fortunes have been transformed from perennially living in the shadow of local rivals Manchester United to winning four Premier League titles in the past eight years among 11 major trophies. Star players such as Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are also unlikely to want to waste two of their peak years without Champions League football.“Two years would be long. One year is something I might be able to cope with,” De Bruyne told Het Laatste Nieuws in June.It would still take huge fees from rival clubs to tempt City to sell, but they may be forced to downsize to gain re-entry to the Champions League even after any ban is over.City made 93 million euros from UEFA prize money and TV rights from last season’s Champions League, with gate receipts and extra sponsorship revenue from Europe’s premier club competition added to that tally.It would be almost impossible for the club to lose that level of revenue for two years and remain FFP-compliant without cutting costs on transfer fees and wages, or selling players.– Man Utd to benefit? –Even more painfully for City, Manchester United could be one of the major beneficiaries of their exclusion.City are comfortably second in the Premier League table, but if they are banned, fifth will be good enough to qualify for the Champions League.United are currently in fifth with Chelsea or Leicester the other sides likely to profit.Manchester City fortunes have been transformed by owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s takeover of the club in 2008 Loading… Yet the prize that has eluded them is the one the Abu Dhabi project most desires – the Champions League. – Guardiola’s last shot? – No matter the outcome on Monday, City will have the chance to do so in August as they resume their Champions League campaign with a 2-1 lead over Real Madrid from the first leg of their last 16 tie. That could be the last chance for some of City’s biggest names to win the Champions League for the club as a two-year ban would have severe consequences for the club’s finances. Guardiola’s contract runs until the end of the 2020⁄21 season and the Catalan is unlikely to still be in charge in two years’ time.

How will the new season pan out?

first_img The pressure is clearly on Brendan Rodgers after last season’s failure to build on the 2014 title near-miss. Now in his fourth season, Rodgers has recruited extensively for a second summer in succession and needs a quick return. Much attention will centre on £32million striker Christian Benteke and Rodgers also needs Daniel Sturridge back fit and firing. James Milner, Danny Ings, Nathaniel Clyne and Roberto Firmino look like astute signings but Rodgers – now without Sterling and Steven Gerrard – needs the mix to work quickly. WHO WILL BE IN RELEGATION TROUBLE? There will be much anticipation at Bournemouth and fellow promoted clubs Norwich and Watford but for them the primary objective must simply be to avoid the bottom three. Leicester, Aston Villa, Newcastle and Sunderland – after largely unimpressive seasons last time – could all be in the battle with them. WHAT OF PRESSURE CLUBS NEWCASTLE, WEST HAM AND ASTON VILLA? Newcastle fans may not have seen the back of unpopular owner Mike Ashley but they will hope that an apparent change in tone from him might result in more of an emphasis on results than purely the balance sheet. Former England boss Steve McClaren will also have a point to prove on his return to the Premier League. For West Ham the season is a crucial one as they prepare for a new life in the Olympic Stadium from next year. Having consolidated in the top flight they have decided to move on from the dependable Sam Allardyce, but it remains to be seen if Slaven Bilic can take them to the next level. Villa have flirted with relegation for too long. Tim Sherwood’s injection of enthusiasm was enough to save them – and take them to the FA Cup final – last season but, with uncertainty still over their ownership, they lack stability and the departures of Fabian Delph and Benteke leave a hole. The start of the Barclays Premier League season this weekend brings with it its usual mix of excitement and intrigue. Here, Press Association Sport looks at some of the main talking points ahead of the campaign. DO CHELSEA REMAIN THE TEAM TO BEAT? Jose Mourinho’s men enter the new season as clear favourites and with some justification after winning the title at a canter last season. The Blues were criticised for their style at times but results are what matter the most and Mourinho knows how to get them. Their squad remains formidable and if Radamel Falcao can show some pre-2014 form they could be even stronger. WHERE WILL THE CHALLENGE COME FROM? Manchester City will be determined to bounce back after last season’s tame surrender. The capture of Raheem Sterling improves their squad and they will be expecting to challenge strongly. Their neighbours United will also look to step up after regaining top-four status and a summer of strengthening. Arsenal look better for the signing of Petr Cech but they may still be a top-line striker short. Liverpool and Tottenham can only be regarded as outsiders. IS STERLING WORTH THE MONEY? The negativity generated by Sterling’s attempts to engineer a move away from Liverpool obscured analysis of his talent. His form fell away late last season but he has already shown he is one of the most exciting attacking talents to emerge in England for some time. If he can get back to his best City have acquired a potentially brilliant match-winner, but there is some way to go to justify the £49million fee. WHAT WILL HAPPEN AT OLD TRAFFORD? United are now entering the third season of the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era and many are wondering if this giant of English football is now ready to start challenging for honours again. The uncertainty over the future of David de Gea aside, United look stronger with Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin joining their midfield ranks. Memphis Depay is also an exciting prospect and the steely winning mentality of Louis van Gaal is a growing factor as his methods take root. Question marks still remain over the defence, however.

Assam boxer Lovlina Borgohain bows out from Asian Boxing

first_imgOur Sports ReporterGUWAHATI: Assam boxer Lovlina Borgohain (69kg) bowed out from the Asian Boxing Championships losing her quarter-final tie to Chen Nien-Chin of Chinese Taiper in Bangkok today. Chen won the bout 5-0.It was the revenge match for Lovlina as she lost to the same opponent during the semi final in world Boxing Championship last year. However, Chen proved too good for her and never allowed Lovlina to make a comeback into the contest.However another boxer from Assam Shiva Thapa (60kg), a three-time Asian Championships medallist, has kept alive his medal hope. The boxer will fight his quarter final tie tomorrow and a victory will be enough for him to ensure his fourth medal in the Championship.Meanwhile Amit Panghal (52kg) knocked out the reigning Olympic gold medallist Hasanboy Dusmatov while Kavinder Singh Bisht (56kg) stunned 2017 world champion Kairat Yeraliyev as India confirmed four medals at the championship today.The fast-rising Sonia Chahal of Haryana, aged only 21, showed a lot of maturity and calm nerves in her enthralling 3-2 win over Korea’s Jo Son Hwa.Makran Cup gold medallist and national champion Deepak (49kg) did not even have to enter the ring as he was given a walkover by Afghanistan’s Ramish Rahmani due to injury. The semi-final berth awarded Deepak his first Asian Championships medal.Meanwhile like Lovlina two more Indian boxers Seema Poonia (81kg) and Rohit Tokas (64kg) also bowed out from the competition today.

Talent is there for Trojans to dominate

first_imgIn what has become an annual tradition in advance of USC’s matchups with the Huskies, Washington coach Steve Sarkisian once again praised USC for having superior talent to the rest of the Pac-12. But this time, Sarkisian notably changed his phrasing in one subtle respect: He referred solely to the Trojans’ starting offensive and defensive lineups.“I know Lane hates when I say this, but they’re probably the most talented team in our conference when you just look at their starting 22,” Sarkisian said during a news conference Monday.Kiffin has never embraced the former Trojan assistant’s praise of his roster, because, since becoming head coach in 2010, there have been times when USC’s record clearly didn’t reflect its talent. Understandably, Kiffin likely interprets such a comment as a back-handed compliment. If the talent’s so great, then fans can only blame the coaching for shortcomings.“He says that every year,” Kiffin said in response during an interview on USC’s athletic. “He’s just going to say that no matter what.”After all, if USC was truly the most talented team in the Pac-12 each of the three years Sarkisian will have faced his former team, the Trojans presumably wouldn’t have lost eight conference games from 2010-11 and their conference opener this season at Stanford.Sarkisian — much like Kiffin, I might add — is the ultimate gamesman, never one to forgo the opportunity to inflate his opponent’s resume or wax poetic about another team’s star player. There’s no harm in this philosophy: If Washington loses, the Huskies fell to a gifted Trojan team. If Washington wins, however, it’s a banner upset, announcing the Huskies’ arrival in the Pac-12’s upper echelon.Ignoring Sarkisian’s possible pretext, I’ll agree with his sentiment this time around: This year, USC does field the best starting 22 out of any team in the Pac-12, and it’s really not particularly close. In the next few years, USC’s 2012 starting 22 will yield more NFL draft picks than any other conference competitor’s.Let me clarify: This does not mean USC is the best team. Until proven otherwise, Oregon retains that mantle.Still, as an exercise, let’s compare the two teams’ starting offensive lineups and indulge in a fantasy scenario in which Kiffin was given Oregon’s and USC’s starting offensive lineups, but could pick only 11 players to field a super-starting offense.Even though Oregon’s offense averages 52.3 points per game compared to USC’s 34, it’s unlikely Kiffin would choose to field many Oregon starters.Aside from all-purpose threats Kenjon Barner and De’Anthony Thomas, who on the Ducks’ offense would start for USC? Offensive tackle Nick Cody might supplant sophomore left tackle Aundrey Walker and tight end Colt Lyerla — often used at fullback — might replace redshirt freshman Soma Vainuku, but I doubt Kiffin, if given the chance, would pluck any other players from Oregon’s vaunted offense to insert into his starting lineup.To continue this scenario further on the defensive side of the football, Oregon’s starting defensive talent is much more commensurate with USC’s, but Kiffin would still be hard-pressed to tinker too much with his roster in this fantasy scenario.Middle linebacker Michael Clay — a Lombardi Award candidate — would likely replace sophomore Lamar Dawson. Either Ifo Ekpre-Olomu or Terrance Mitchell would start at USC’s perilously-thin second cornerback spot. And Dion Jordan, a 2011 All-Pac-12 first-team performer, would without question occupy one of the defensive end positions.Beyond these three switches, however, it’s difficult to make an overwhelming case that Kiffin would wish to exchange any other starting USC defensive players for Oregon’s.Yet, USC allows 19.4 points per game and Oregon surrenders just 20, including a combined 21 points to Arizona and Washington — more explosive offenses than any team USC has played to date.After completing this thought experiment, how is it possible not to determine that Chip Kelly is simply a far better coach than Kiffin and can extract more talent out of his roster?Surely Kelly is a better coach than Kiffin, but that’s not a biting criticism of Kiffin and the gap isn’t as expansive as the exercise just demonstrated, no one extracts more talent from his players and tailors his schemes to fit his players’ strengths better than Kelly.Right now, the Mount Rushmore of current college coaches is Alabama’s Nick Saban, Ohio State’s Urban Meyer, Boise State’s Chris Petersen and Kelly.So why should Kiffin get a pass and why shouldn’t USC fans clamor for his immediate dismissal?Simply put, because of roster limitations, Kiffin doesn’t have the depth other top teams enjoy. USC’s starting 22 is better than Oregon’s, but its top 44 simply isn’t. The Trojans’ second-stringers don’t experience the competition for their backup roles that those of schools do.The Ducks excel with unparalleled depth, rotating second- and third-string players just as capable as their starting counterparts.Nothing illustrates this point better than the reality that, on USC’s allotted 70-player travel squad for Saturday’s game, the Trojans will bring several redshirting players and walk-ons.Sarkisian and I are in agreement that USC fields the best starting 22 players in the Pac-12, but it doesn’t matter when a program like Oregon capitalizes on superior depth and coaching from a once-in-a-generation offensive guru. “Leveling the Playing Field” runs Fridays.

‘Russia State-sponsored Doping across Majority of Olympic Sports’

first_imgIt says Russian athletes benefited from what the report called the “Disappearing Positive Methodology”, whereby positive doping samples would go missing.International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach described the commission’s findings as a “shocking and unprecedented attack on the integrity of sport and on the Olympic Games” and pledged to enforce the “toughest sanctions available” against those implicated.The IOC will decide on Tuesday about any “provisional measures and sanctions” for the Rio Olympics, which start on August 5.The commission, led by Canadian law professor and sports lawyer Dr Richard McLaren, looked into allegations made by the former head of Russia’s national anti-doping laboratory.Grigory Rodchenkov claimed he doped dozens of athletes before the 2014 Winter Olympics, which were held in Sochi, Russia.Rodchenkov – described by the Kremlin as a “scandalous” former official – also alleged he had been helped by the Russian secret service, the FSB.He claimed they had worked out how to open and reseal supposedly tamper-proof bottles that were used for storing urine samples so the contents could be replaced with “clean” urine.McLaren sent a random amount of stored samples from “protected Russian athletes” at Sochi 2014 to an anti-doping laboratory in London to see if they had scratch marks around the necks of the bottles that would indicate they had been manipulated.McLaren said “100% of the bottles had been scratched” but added that would “not have been visible to the untrained eye”.He said he had “unwavering confidence” in all of his findings.The damning report does not make any recommendations, but will fuel calls for a complete ban on Russia from the 2016 Summer Olympics, which start in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on August 5.Wada has recommended the IOC “decline entries, for Rio 2016, of all athletes” submitted by the Russian Olympic Committee and the Russian Paralympic Committee. Russian government officials should also be banned from this summer’s Games, it said.WADA President, Sir Craig Reedie, called the “scope and scale” of the findings a “real horror story”, adding that he was “encouraged” the “correct decision” would be taken by the IOC.“I’m not sure that the system is broken,” Reedie told BBC Radio 5 live. “But if you are determined to cheat you can get round the system. We can’t sit back on the situation; we have to work with Russian officials to change the culture in that country.”President Vladimir Putin made the Sochi Games a showcase event and spent more than $50bn (£37.7bn) staging the Games.On Monday, Putin said officials named in the McLaren report would be suspended, pending a thorough investigation.But a statement released by the Kremlin criticised the report as “accusations against Russian athletes” based on the testimony of “a person with a scandalous reputation”.It also warned of a “dangerous recurrence of interference of politics in sport”.Putin has asked WADA to provide “more complete, objective, evidence-based information” to Russian investigators.The report said Russia’s ‘Disappearing Positive Methodology’ worked when analysis could be done at the Moscow laboratory.But at an international event – such as London 2012, the Athletics World Championships of 2013, or the Swimming World Championships of 2015 – Russia had to adapt its methods.The report found:Dr Rodchenkov’s “cocktail” of steroids was given to athletes prior to London 2012. They were drugs he felt were least likely to be detectedForty six Russian athletes with performance-enhancing drugs in their system were pre-tested from 17-22 July 2012They were categorised as red – will test positive and should be replaced; amber – traces of drugs, but should be clear for London; green – cleanAll records of positive tests were falsified into negative resultsAthletes were also given micro-doses of blood-booster erythropoietin (EPO) up until two weeks before they left for LondonEleven of the 46 athletes won medals at London 2012 – some have since been banned and had their medals strippedIn June 2016, the IOC ordered retests of London 2012 samples – eight athletes tested positiveIt was “inconceivable” that Russia’s Sports Minister, Vitaly Mutko, was not aware of the doping cover-up scheme, according to the report.Mutko has been in position since 2008. He is a member of the executive committee of football’s world governing body, FIFA, and chairs the organising committee of the 2018 World Cup, to be held in Russia.The report claimed Mutko personally intervened to cover up a doping case of “at least” one overseas football player in the Russian League and that 11 positive tests by Russia footballers disappeared.However, it was Mutko’s deputy, Yuri Nagornykh, who was advised of “every positive analytical finding” from the Moscow laboratory from 2011 onwards – in “total violation” of WADA rules – and decided who to protect.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Russia operated a state-sponsored doping programme for four years across the “vast majority” of summer and winter Olympic sports, claims a new report.It was “planned and operated” from late 2011 – including the build-up to London 2012 – and continued through the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics until August 2015.An investigation commissioned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) says Russia’s sports ministry “directed, controlled and oversaw” manipulation of urine samples provided by its athletes.last_img read more
