The Latest: UEFA helps clubs with financial rules

first_imgOlympic qualifying in dozens of sports has been thrown into chaos as continental championships around the world have been postponed.The IWF says it has drawn up a replacement set of qualifying rules and submitted them to the International Olympic Committee but it won’t tell athletes or national federations about the changes until the IOC signs off on the plan.The IWF says it has ruled out extending the qualifying period beyond April 30. That means any rescheduled continental championships won’t count.Weightlifting’s long-standing problems with doping caused the IWF to demand top lifters competed more regularly at international events to be eligible for the Olympics — and to be subject to more doping tests. They were required to compete at least once between November and April.___ The coronavirus outbreak forced a bare-bones version of the usual elaborate ceremony in the stadium where the first modern Olympics were staged in 1896.The 80,000-seat marble stadium was empty apart from a handful of officials and participants. The Japanese delegation was absent because of travel restrictions and Tokyo organizing committee head Yoshiro Mori delivered a speech by video from Japan. But his message was upbeat.Mori says “I hereby pledge that on 24 July this flame will be lit at the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo.”Greek Olympic committee president Spyros Kapralos handed over the flame to a Japanese Unicef official in Athens and former Olympic swimmer Naoko Imoto. It was then headed for the airport to board the flight for Japan.___ Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditLONDON (AP) — The Latest on the coronavirus outbreak’s effect on sports around the world (all times local):___1:50 p.m. March 19, 2020 UEFA is giving European soccer clubs extra time and leeway to comply with financial monitoring rules during the coronavirus outbreak.UEFA says it has extended a March 31 deadline by one month for clubs to show they have no outstanding debts for taxes and transfer fees.The shutdown of European soccer has deprived clubs of match-day income and many risk getting less revenue from broadcasting contracts if games cannot be played.The “Financial Fair Play” system monitors at least three years of accounts for hundreds of clubs which qualify to play in the Champions League and Europa League. Clubs which fail to break even on commercial income and spending on transfers and wages risk sanctions which include being expelled from competitions in the most severe cases.UEFA says the established rules allow for unforeseen circumstances which “is taken into account as part of the clubs’ assessment on a case by case basis.” 10:45 a.m.Players from German soccer club Borussia Mönchengladbach have accepted pay cuts during the coronavirus pandemic.Gladbach sporting director Max Eberl says the players approached the club with an offer of voluntary pay cuts, and the coaching staff, directors and executives have joined in.Eberl says “I am very proud of the boys. A clear signal: we are standing together for Borussia in good and bad times.”Gladbach is fourth in the German league and was on course to qualify for a spot in next season’s Champions League. Gladbach CEO Stephan Schippers says the club and Bundesliga are in their toughest financial situation in more than 20 years because of lost revenue from tickets, TV and sponsorship. The federation says a detailed program of games will be presented after UEFA clarifies dates for rearranged European club tournaments.___1:10 p.m.Soccer in England will stay suspended until at least April 30 because of the coronavirus outbreak and the season could be finished in June.The Football Association and Premier League say they have agreed to extend the suspension from April 4 to April 30.

The Latest: UEFA helps clubs with financial rules ___1:15 p.m.The Swedish soccer association says the start of the top professional leagues in the country have been postponed with the aim of playing again in late May or early June.The decision comes a day after a request from clubs in Sweden’s top two men’s leagues to delay the start of the season until the beginning of June because of the coronavirus outbreak.The season was due to start on the weekend of April 3-4. Gladbach played a game last week in an empty stadium. The club estimated it lost about 2 million euros ($2.16 million) in revenue by playing without fans.In Scotland, Hearts has asked all its players and other fulltime employees to accept a 50 percent pay cut, or contract termination.___10:30 a.m.The Olympic flame has been handed over, by proxy, to Tokyo organizers in Athens. That means the English leagues can continue playing in space that opened up when UEFA postponed the European Championship to 2021.The FA, Premier League and English Football League say they are “united in their commitment” that the season should be resumed.___11 a.m.The International Weightlifting Federation says it has changed its Olympic qualifying criteria in response to the coronavirus outbreak but won’t say how the new system works.

first_imgMoving to Saturday’s finals, McMahon set a new season mark with 1:00.65 and took 34th place overall. Schultz broke his day-old sectional record with 56.14 seconds, runner-up to the 55.03 from Dansville’s Aidan Kreiley.As for junior Keegan Scharoun, he was trying to go quicker than 54.74 seconds in the 100-yard backstroke. While not quite doing so, Scharoun’s 54.83 seconds put him in 40th place, ahead of the 55.55 from the sectional champion, Liverpool’s Curtis Merrick.McMahon and Scharoun got together with two other juniors, Alex Shuron and Chase Foresti, for the 200 medley relay, where WG’s time of 1:40.07 had put them in the state meet.Getting under the 1:40 mark, the Wildcats posted 1:39.99 in qualifying and, in Saturday’s finals, fell off a bit to 1:40.27, but still finished 26th overall.

Syracuse defense shuts down Albany in 15-3 win

first_img Comments Published on February 15, 2020 at 12:11 pm Contact Roshan: rferna04@syr.edu | @Roshan_f16 Asa Goldstock banged the metal handle of her stick against the right goal post midway through the first half. She made sure she had the entire cage covered, then locked in on the Albany attack eight meters away. Seconds later, she extended her stick to the right to make a save.Monday, after conceding 14 goals and then getting benched by head coach Gary Gait, Goldstock threw her stick and gloves on the sidelines in frustration. The confidence wasn’t there. But Saturday, as she stood up to the challenge to make one of three saves on the day, it was clear that she rediscovered whatever was missing against Stony Brook. “Maybe I had a good game, but also I only saw three shots,” Goldstock said. “It’s mostly the defense getting all the stops — they got way more saves then I did today.” That lockdown performance from Syracuse’s (2-1) defense and Goldstock, paired with the team’s ability to balance patience with electric individual play on the transition, helped the Orange beat Albany (0-1) 15-3. It was the first time since 2017 that Syracuse held its opponent to three or fewer goals. Saturday morning, after the No. 4 Orange conceded 17 goals in last Monday’s one-goal loss to Stony Brook, they kept a clean sheet in the first half and did not concede until 11 minutes into the second half. Goldstock recorded her first career shutout. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAll game, SU’s defenders crowded the 12-meter arc, hustling to get numbers back and face the ball. Tight man-marking and pressure from the defensive unit limited the number of shots Goldstock had to face from within eight meters. Goldstock had so much faith in Kerry Defliese and Allyson Trice that the goalkeeper even vacated her net when Albany was attacking on two separate occasions to intercept a pass. “The difference (between today and Monday) is we’re getting those transition goals,” Goldstock said. “We’re getting the ball to the offense and they’re scoring, and when they score we feel better.” The Orange took full advantage of the transition and the counterattack when opportunities presented themselves. At the end of the first half, Sam Swart collected a loose ball at SU’s 10-yard line — 10 seconds later, she was at the Albany 10-yard line. Sprinting the length of the field at full speed, the Great Danes defense had no option but to foul Swart as she entered the 8-meter arc. She scored on the ensuing free position play. Jordan Phelps | Staff PhotographerSingle-handedly, Swart’s efforts ignited the counterattack goal. But SU didn’t run full speed at Albany for the entire game, the way Swart did for the team’s eighth goal. “That goes back to my teammates and cutting open and moving around. That’s why it worked,” Swart said. The Orange picked their moments. They showed patience and composure, moving the ball around Albany’s cage until an opportunity for an offensive spark presented itself. Against an Albany team playing in its season opener, SU controlled possession around the Great Danes’ goal for multiple minutes at a time, connecting on as many as 15 passes. With less than nine minutes remaining in the first half, the Orange swung the ball from right to left and behind the cage and in front, eventually finding Megan Carney. Running from left to right around the 8-meter arc, she rounded her defender and found a wide-open lane to shoot. Just like Swart’s play late in the first half, Carney took the opportunity to bring the offense to life with an electric individual play. And just like Swart, it worked.  In addition to outshooting Albany 33-12, the Orange spent the majority of the game in the Great Danes’ half of the field. Even Goldstock spent time in Albany’s half. For Syracuse’s fourth goal, she carried the ball past midfield before she connected on a 30-yard pass which flew over Albany’s entire midfield. Quick transitional passes from SU’s midfielders got the ball to Hawryschuk, who found a wide-open Carney for her first goal of the night. She’d finish the game with a team-high 5 goals. Swart, who slotted three goals, combined with Carney to make up for Emily Hawryschuk’s quiet two-goal performance. After struggling to take full advantage of the free position in its first two games, SU’s composure was on display as it scored on three of five of its chances during the first half. Defensively, Syracuse applied pressure on the free position and cut off Albany’s players, making them “easy shots to save from the goalie position,” Goldstock said. Gait said the team had a “long week of reflection” to learn from the Stony Brook loss. “Our defense certainly stepped up,” Gait said. “We just didn’t have a let down. We stayed mentally focused for the first 30 minutes and held them scoreless, so we did a really great job.”center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Jamaican drug kingpin ordered to pay $20 million

first_imgRichard Byrd behind bars A Jamaican drug kingpin has been ordered to pay $20 million after being sentenced to 28 years in a Maryland Court.Richard Byrd a 43-year-old Jamaican residing in Maryland and Arizona, has been convicted and sentenced to 26 years on the federal charge of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute cocaine and marijuana, and conspiracy to launder drug proceeds.Byrd, who goes by the name Robert Smith, was sentenced Thursday, February 9 in a district court in Baltimore, Maryland.Byrd…ordered to pay 420 millionThe court ordered that he be supervised for 10 years after his release.Byrd was also ordered to pay a money judgment of $20 million, as well as forfeit his interest in two properties, three businesses, and 10 vehicles, and forfeit US $1,609,411.51 in cash seized during the investigation.“This case represents the very height of drug organisations operating out of Baltimore in recent history,” Don Hibbert, assistant special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration, said following the sentencing.“The Byrd organisation had it all — sources of supply, couriers, and lots and lots of money. But now all they have to show for it is a great deal of time behind bars to think about how they destroyed lives with the drugs they put on the street,”Hibbert said.According to his plea agreement and court documents, from 2009 through April 2014, Byrd was the leader and organiser a drug distribution network that provided for the acquisition, transportation and distribution of cocaine and marijuana.The sale of marijuana and cocaine generated proceeds in the millions of dollars. These proceeds were counted and packaged in and around Baltimore. Byrd used couriers to transport the proceeds to the Atlanta, Georgia area, then others to transport the money from Atlanta to cities in Nevada, Texas, Arizona, and California, where the cash was used to purchase additional quantities of drugs.Byrd also acquired a financial interest in a business in order to launder drug proceeds, finance commercial ventures, and pay other bills and expenses.At his direction, several million dollars in cash were deposited into the bank accounts maintained by the business. Many of these transactions involve deposits in excess of US$10,000. In addition, Byrd used bank accounts in the name of an alias, Robert Smith, to conduct financial transactions intended to launder drug proceeds, including paying personal bills and expenses.The conspirators used freight companies to ship drugs obtained in Arizona, California and elsewhere to distribution points in Baltimore, and other east coast destinations.Rasan Byrd supervised the Arizona-based activities of organisation. Under the direction of Richard Byrd, Rasan coordinated the acquisition of large quantities of marijuana and cocaine from Mexican sources of supply and supervised several workers who weighed and packaged the drugs in a way to avoid detection by law enforcement.On April 22, 2013, law enforcement officers in Arizona seized 16 kilograms of cocaine and over 600 pounds of marijuana which were about to be shipped to Byrd’s Baltimore-based distributors.The Baltimore distributors included Jerome Castle, Joseph Byrd, and Harold Byrd. Castle supervised the Baltimore operation, taking delivery of the drugs, selling them, and collecting and counting proceeds from the drug sales. On April 22, 2013, law enforcement officers in Maryland seized approximately 350 pounds of marijuana and over 10 kilograms of cocaine from businesses and residences utilized by Castle, Joseph Byrd, and Harold Byrd. In addition, almost US$58,000 in currency and jewellery valued at more than US$400,000 were recovered at the residence of Jerome Castle. The money and jewellery were also proceeds from illegal drug sales.In addition, over US$1 million was seized in Arizona from Richard Byrd in early 2011. In July 2012, an additional US $372,000 was seized from a residence in Arizona occupied by Richard and Rasan Byrd.These money seizures were proceeds from east coast drug sales intended for use in acquiring additional quantities of marijuana and cocaine.During the course of this conspiracy more than 150 kilograms of cocaine and 20,000 kilograms of marijuana were acquired and distributed by Richard Byrd and his associates.Brothers Rasan Byrd, age 41, of Houston, Texas, Harold Alexander Byrd, age 27, of Phoenix, Maryland, and Joseph Ibreham Byrd, age 35, of Owings Mills, Maryland, previously pleaded guilty to their roles in the conspiracy. Rasan was sentenced to 14 years in prison and Harold and Joseph were each sentenced to 10 years in prison.Jerome Adolfo Castle, a/k/a Dontwon Burris, age 37, a Jamaican citizen residing in Pikesville, Maryland, previously pleaded guilty to his role in the conspiracy and was sentenced to 14 years in prison.Castle was also ordered to forfeit US$57,997 in cash, his interest in seven Baltimore properties, jewellery valued at more than US$411,000, 98 pairs of men’s shoes, two laptop computers and an I-Pad, seven firearms and ammunition, as well as six vehicles, including a 2009 Jaguar XF Premium.Maurice Jones, age 62, and Richard Drummond, age 40, both of Baltimore, also pleaded guilty to their roles in the conspiracy and were sentenced to seven years in prison and two years in prison, respectively.last_img read more

EPIC Risk Management: Uniting the industry for harm minimisation

first_img EPIC and Whysup ‘continue to make real change’ with partnership renewal August 19, 2020 Share Submit Share Related Articles EFL announces that all non-Sky Sports fixtures will be available to stream August 27, 2020 StumbleUpon QPR names Football Index as new shirt sponsor August 21, 2020 Mark PotterEPIC Risk Management is the UK’s leading independent gambling harm minimisation consultancy, placing its key focus on the highest prevalent sectors. EPIC identifies and reduces the brand, reputational, financial and human risks caused by gambling in the workplace.The firm’s Business Development Manager Mark Potter spoke to SBC about EPIC’s calculated strategy when it comes to increasing education around problem gambling, as well as detailing more about its new partnership with Sky Bet and the EFL.SBC: Firstly could you tell our readership more about what it is EPIC does and why it’s so important?Mark Potter: As we know, the term risk means the exposure to danger. At EPIC Risk Management, we work directly with organisations in the sectors that have statistically the highest prevalence of problematic gambling to help reduce the risks associated with this ever growing societal issue.This comes in the form of education and training, policy development and review, Risk Management and internal audit and executive support. SBC: Are you able to go into more detail about the education programmes you offer and how they differ for each group of people that you aim to help?MP: Traditionally the sectors that we work in are Professional Sport, Financial Services, Military, Criminal Justice, Gambling Operators and Education.Some pretty damning statistics currently show the reasons why we work in the sectors we do;* 500,000 children aged 11-15 are gambling every week in the UK.* There are over 1,000 gambling related frauds have led to custodial sentences in the last 5 years.* 20% of all referrals to the National Problem Gambling Helpline are from people within the financial services industry.* Professional sportsmen are 5x more likely to gamble more than they can realistically afford.* Military veterans are 8x more likely to become problem gamblers than the general population.The work we do in each sector varies.In financial services we do a lot of Risk Management work to ensure fit for purpose policies and procedures are in place. We do a lot of training around anti money laundering and generally help organisations mitigate the risks of financial frauds in the workplace.I will cover pro sport in the next questionMilitary and Criminal Justice we have recently completed two year tenders for Gamble Aware to deliver harm minimisation projects to serving military personnel, serving prisoners, probation staff and families of affected people.Education we have completed a number of awareness sessions within schools to highlight the dangers of problematic gambling to young people. In the current climate where smart phones, ipads, laptops, debit cards are all common within young people, the vulnerability to gambling is higher than it has ever been, which highlights the need to educate around the potential pitfalls of this.Please visit our website www.epicriskmanagement.com which goes into more detail about the different sectors and what we do. This would be beneficial to you.SBC: You recently partnered with Sky Bet and the EFL to provide educational programmes, are you able to tell us more about this and what you hope to achieve with this initiative?  MP: Our partnership with Sky Betting and Gaming and the EFL is aimed at running a responsible gambling programme to educate the players and staff from all 72 EFL league clubs about gambling related harm, how to identify potential signs within team mates and to highlight the pathway of support should the need arise. It has gone really well up to now and several players have come out on social media to endorse the value of the sessions and its content. SBC: You also work with ex military personnel how important is it that you work with those most vulnerable to problem gambling? MP: It is EPIC’S mission to take the problem out of gambling, so by working the most vulnerable populations, we feel we can have the most impact. This has certainly been the case with the organisations that we currently work with and our website shows a number of testimonials to show the positive impact that we have had in terms of minimising harm, identification and signposting.SBC: With regards to your educational programmes in schools and universities, could you explain how crucial it is to educate people about problem gambling at a young age? MP: It goes without saying that educating young people is critical in terms of reducing gambling harm in the future and also enabling them to make better informed decisions. As part of the sessions, we centre it around a hard hitting personal story, which always gives authenticity and engages the audience. We then educate around the potential dangers, gambling facts, videos and Q and A. We also collect interactive anonymous date from our sessions to provide reports and feedback to organisations.SBC: Lastly, could you tell us more about the response you’ve had from the industry about what you’re trying to do?MP: Over the last 18 months, we have collaborated with a couple of proactive operators in Sky Betting and Gaming and Kindred Group (formerly Unibet), with the idea of helping to make gambling safer and fairer for its customers. I can speak for both, when I know they find our knowledge, advice and training invaluable when it comes to ensuring all aspects of safer gambling.It is EPIC’s intention to work with one, maybe two more operators in the coming months, but only the ones such as our current clients that share our values around safer gambling.last_img read more

Karius on the hit with Ramos: “I never used the commotion as an excuse”

first_imgLoris Karius He was the involuntary protagonist of the 2018 Champions League final. The German goalkeeper did not have his best night and Liverpool fell against Real Madrid. Two years later, and once he had to leave on loan to the Turkish Besiktas, he gave an interview in Sport Bild where he talks again about what he felt and the famous shock suffered, after a collision with Sergio Ramos. Social networks: “If you read all the posts, you can’t sleep for two days. It’s crazy what people say from anonymity and the serious insults, discriminatory and racist comments they send you. If there are personal threats or death threats, the limit”.Future: “I’m not talking about speculation. The fact is, I have a contract in Liverpool until 2022. And right now I’m just concentrating on the season at Besiktas. It’s too early to say anything about the summer. Especially now that nobody knows exactly what to do. due to the coronavirus. “Liverpool Contact: “I mainly write to goalkeeper coach John Achterberg. Almost weekly, he is my first point of contact. But occasionally I also talk to Jürgen Klopp, I am in touch with everyone.” Reaction of the fans after the final: “I’ve had some death threats. But I can’t take them seriously. These are people who post comments anonymously and don’t even show their faces on their profiles. I don’t think when people see me they dare to open their mouths.” .Nightmares with the game against Real Madrid: “In retrospect, I should have reported what was happening much faster. I had a concussion after a stroke by Sergio Ramos, which limited my vision. This was confirmed after research by brain specialists. At first I was happy that I knew why, but I didn’t want to go public. When that finally happened, there were a lot of angry reactions and insults, often very low. I never used it as an excuse. But when people laugh at someone who has a seriously injured head, I it’s hard to understand. “last_img read more
