Wenger in the dark over Anelka gesture

first_imgArsene Wenger believes only Nicolas Anelka can say whether he knew the full implications of his controversial ‘quenelle’ goal celebration. Press Association The West Brom striker caused uproar with his gesture, which is claimed by some to be an inverted Nazi salute and to have anti-Semitic connotations. The Football Association is currently investigating. Wenger, the Arsenal manager who first brought Anelka to English football, said the meaning of the gesture was not widely known even in France. The Gunners boss does believe however that players should refrain from celebrating in any way which might “encourage hate”. Wenger told a news conference: “Personally I believe there is only one beautiful way to celebrate a goal and that is to share it with your partners. That should be for me the only way. “The second thing is that nobody knows in France what it means. Some make it an anti-system movement, some make it an anti-Semitic movement. I think personally I don’t know, I have never seen this movement. “Do we make too much of it? Yes, because he is not (going) to do it again, he has said he will not do it again. Only he can answer (whether) he knew what it meant or not.” The ‘quenelle’ salute was brought to prominence in France by comedian Dieudonne M’Bala M’Bala, who has been prosecuted for anti-Semitism. Anelka has stated on Twitter it was nothing more than a “special dedication to his friend Dieudonne” but West Brom have conceded the gesture caused offence and he has agreed not to repeat it. Wenger said if it was proved to be a “lack of respect” then Anelka could expect an FA charge. He added: “If it is an offence and is recognised as an offence and a lack of respect, you want it to be punished, like every single thing. “What is important is we respect each other and do not show (lack of respect), especially the sportsmen, who are very popular and watched all over the world. We do not want to encourage hate, we want to encourage understanding and respect.” Pictures have also emerged of two other French players, Samir Nasri and Mamadou Sakho, performing the gesture. Nasri clarified his position, stressing it was his view that it should be portrayed as an anti-establishment gesture rather than anything more sinister. He said on Twitter: “The pose in the picture i posted over 2 months ago symbolises being against the system. Its has absolutely nothing to do with being anti semitic or against jewish people. I apologise for causing any hurt to anyone who might have been mislead into thinking this means anything of that nature.” Liverpool defender Sakho said in November that he was tricked into performing the gesture. He wrote on his Twitter account: “This photo was taken six months ago, I did not know the meaning of this gesture, I got trapped!” On Monday, a Liverpool spokesperson told Press Association Sport: “Mamadou Sakho has explained that when posing for the photo, taken over six months ago, he had no knowledge of any meaning or significance attached to the gesture.” last_img read more

Franklin storms to third consecutive senior TT title

first_img– Cummings, Van Lange, Johnson and Chung also victorious on final day CHRISTOPHER Franklin is still the king of table tennis in Guyana.  He marched through a long line of quality players on Sunday, including main rival, Shemar Britton, to win his third consecutive senior national title at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.Although Britton had moments of glory in the championship clash, the class of the defending champion diminished the battle. The 35-year-old was clinical in his execution; he served low, but with speed and stayed calm throughout the entire clash, which helped to stop, at least for this year, his 21-year-old rival’s dream of winning his first senior title.The 14-year gap was never evident as Franklin played some exquisite strokes and was able to weather the storm every time the former Caribbean U-21 champion attempted to stage a comeback.After the opening loss, Britton found himself trailing 8-2, but he rebounded with positive strokeplays by scoring four unanswered points.  Franklin, however, kept his cool and re-adjusted to register win number two.Game three was another scorcher and the pair traded points with Britton keeping the upper hand until Franklin took the lead 9-8, but the backspin of Britton won him key points down the stretch.As he did in his previous games, Franklin again made the adjustments, which propelled him to championship honours.The match finished 4-1 (11-6, 11-6, 10-12, 11-7 and 11-7).Prior to that game, Franklin had defeated Joel Alleyne 4-1 (11-7, 11-5, 11-4, 9-11 and 11-4), while Britton had gotten past former champion, Nigel Bryan 4-0 (11-5, 11-7, 11-4 and 11-6) in the semis.Alleyne and Bryan finished in joint third place.VAN LANGE’S VICTORYChristopher Franklin (left) celebrates while Shemar Britton is pondering where he went wrong after the championship clash in the senior men’s competition.The senior championship final might have been the most impactful, but Jonathan Van Lange stole the show.The 13-year-old junior national champion (U-15 and U-18) stormed to victory in the ‘B’ division even though he was nursing a fractured finger.After finishing as runner up to Elishaba Johnson in the U-21 final, the national U-15 cricketer bounced back later in the evening in a re-match, to take the ‘B’ division title.  Johnson, the son of renowned coach, Linden Johnson, played exceptional tennis, but he was no match for his younger opponent.That contest was very competitive with Van Lange winning the openers (11-5, 11-9), before Johnson came back to tie 12-10, 13-11.  The older player had to dig deep to undermine the strokeplay of Van Lange.  Though the eventual champion would win the last two games 11-5 and 11-8, the points did not come easy.In the semi-final of the ‘B’ division, Johnson had defeated Isaiah Layne 4-2, while Van Lange, who lost to Franklin in the quarterfinals of the seniors (4-1), had defeated Brandon Belle 4-1.Both Layne and Belle settled for a bronze medal.Earlier, it was Johnson who soared to victory.  In the U-21 battle, Johnson was ahead 3-0 (11-7, 11-5 and 11-5) before Van Lange fought back (11-8 and 11-8).  The older player was, however, able to close the match with a 13-11 win.DOMINANT CUMMINGSNatalie Cummings was flawless in the female competition.Without the likes of senior national players, Trenace Lowe, Chelsea Edghill and Jody-Ann Blake, the female championship was less competitive. Instead, several juniors battled Natalie Cummings and she proved why she is highly rated.Cummings did not drop a game as she defeated national U-15 champion, Thuraia Thomas 11-4, 11-5 and 11-7; U-18 champion Crystal Melville 11-5, 11-3 and 11-2, and U-21 champion, Jasmine Billingy 11-4, 11-6 and 11-6.Thomas placed second overall, while Melville finished third.Meanwhile, in the ‘C’ division final, Kyle Chung defeated Troy McRae 3-2 (11-9, 8-11, 9-11, 11-9, 11-9) in an entertaining and close clash.last_img read more

Team-first mentality leads to success in pool

first_imgBadgers both new and old found success in the pool over the weekend, as senior Dan Lester was named men’s Big Ten Swimmer of The Week and freshman John Bushman was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week. The meets occurred on Oct. 12 and 13 as the Badgers faced Milwaukee and Green Bay, respectively. Lester claimed first place finishes in the 100 and 200-yard butterfly as well as swimming in the 200 and 400-yard medley relay squads, while Bushman won the 100 and 200 freestyle events in addition to placing second in the 1000 freestyle.However, while the senior-freshman duo continues to rack up individual accolades, both insist it is strong leadership and a team-first mentality that allows them to have success in the pool. “We had meetings early in the year with our coaches,” Bushman said. “It wasn’t individual goals; it was team goals, what are we going to do as a team, what is our team GPA, what are we going do as a team at Big Ten’s.”Bushman, a freshman from Green Bay, Wis., is one of the highest touted freshmen in the country. Despite only swimming in four college meets thus far, he has impressed coaches and captains early on in the season. “The guy can really swim, he came from a very unique background,” senior captain Dan Lester said. “He has done a great job adapting – a very hard worker – and it has shown in his results. He is going to go on to do great things.”“I was home schooled in high school and part of a club team,” Bushman said. “When you got to big meets it was all individual, no one really cared about the whole team. In college we care about everything as a team, our goals are a team…my success is their success and vice versa.”“Good kid, works hard, we’re excited that he has had some success,” head coach Whitney Hite said of Bushman. “He is basically a sponge. Certainly doing a great job in terms of doing the right thing and working hard.”Bushman also pointed to the leadership qualities of Lester as a reason for the team’s early success.“Dan Lester is probably one of my favorite guys on the team. He has amazing leadership skills; a true captain on the team. When I first came on campus it was very easy to tell he was a captain,” Bushman said. “He isn’t someone you’re scared to approach. He is more of an older brother figure, a guy you can talk to about swimming and personal issues. He pushes me to work harder.”Lester, a senior from Brisbane, Australia, has had a lot of individual success over his career as a Badger, receiving All-American honors as well as swimming in the Australian Short Course Championships to name a few.Despite these individual awards, Lester is still a team-first swimmer who believes that the team-over-self mantra is key in college swimming.When asked about the differences between swimming in Australia and the United States, Lester was quick to point out the emphasis on team success.“It’s one of the biggest sports [in Australia], the biggest Olympic sport,” Lester said. “The atmosphere here [in the US] is a team sport,” Lester said. “In college you enjoy being a team. You don’t really have that in Australia – it’s more of an individual sport. Being part of a team is amazing.”In fact, Lester cares so much about the team, sometimes he has to be reminded to focus on himself. “Dan has done a great job from day one of the last year,” Hite said. “…Just very much cares about the success of the team, maybe even to the point we remind him we want him to have success as well.”The Badgers next meet will be against the Minnesota Gophers on Oct. 26 in Minneapolis, where Lester and Bushman look to put on another pair of dominating performances and maybe even win a few more individual awards as well. One thing is certain though: the team will be put first.last_img read more

Lottstift warns Norwegian media on advertising responsibilities

The company is mentioned without the reader being informed that they are illegal players in Norway, and it is already true that 6 out of 10 Norwegians do not know or are unsure of who can offer money games in Norway and not.” Share Norsk charities launch study on ‘sensitive area’ of market models May 11, 2020 Sharelast_img read more

U.S. Open 2019: Co-leader Rickie Fowler encouraged by start

first_imgRickie Fowler was more than happy with his start to the U.S. Open after taking a share of the lead at Pebble Beach.Fowler, Xander Schauffele and Louis Oosthuizen shot five-under opening rounds of 66 to set the pace after Scott Piercy had taken the clubhouse lead with a 67 on Thursday. World No. 11 Fowler felt there were opportunities that passed him by, but does not feel his first round could have gone much better.”I definitely would have been happy [with a 66 at the start of the day],” said the Californian. Related News “Thursday is just about getting off to a good start. You can’t go win the golf tournament today, but you can take yourself out of it or put yourself in position where you’re just trying to fight your way back.”If I would have known I was going to hit it that well, I would have wanted to go out and see — put me in all the spots and give me a chance to putt and see if I could better it.”We made some good putts out there but also missed a lot of good looks. It’s nice when you shoot 66, and that’s about as high as it was going to be. So I’m really happy with where we’re at and looking forward to see if we can keep it going.”Oh Rickie, you’re so fine.Leader board: https://t.co/LUYEHVuVeU#USOpen pic.twitter.com/xsbxn72JRk— U.S. Open (USGA) (@usopengolf) June 13, 2019Fowler is hoping the wind picks up as he eyes a first major title in his home state.”This golf course is a bit more fun and shows its teeth with wind,” he said. “Today was a very scorable day.
