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.

Man gunned down; police hunt suspects

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Neighbors said the man moved in recently, liked to play music loudly and rarely had visitors. “He was a nice guy, a nice guy,” said neighbor Linda Orozco, 46, a Spanish-language interpreter who works out of her home. “You know, clean, nicely dressed, alone most of the time. … My husband thought that maybe he was a musician because he was always playing music.” Orozco said she was shocked by the news. She didn’t hear any commotion Monday night, and said that when officers arrived, she was told by an officer that the man had been hurt. “I never heard any gunshots,” she said. “I never heard anything.” Police responded to several 911 calls about 11 p.m. and found the body of the victim lying in the living room area. On Tuesday, a seal with the stamp of the coroner’s office was taped to the front and side doors of the shuttered home. GLENDALE – In the city’s first homicide of the year, a 46-year-old man was shot to death inside his home Monday night, and police were searching for his killers. The man, whose identity was not confirmed Tuesday afternoon, was shot just before 11 p.m. Monday in the 3600 block of Virginia Street. Glendale police detectives interviewed witnesses who saw two men and a woman in a van watching the victim’s house before hearing two or three shots, according to one of the witnesses, who did not want to be identified for fear of retaliation. The witnesses then saw the van flee up Dunsmore Avenue. “We believe this particular resident was targeted for a specific reason,” said Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz, a department spokesman. “However, we are still trying to determine what that is. We don’t believe this is random.” The witness who did not want to be identified said two men and a woman in a dark-colored van, possibly gray, drove by the victim’s home before the shooting. The two men emerged from the van and approached the victim’s house while the woman remained behind, the witness said. “The two (men) walk around the back,” the witness said. “The dogs started to bark, and then we heard three shots – bang, bang, bang. They ran to the van and went up Dunsmore.” Lorenz said police were still trying to piece together information. “We haven’t even positively identified the victim,” Lorenz said. “No one knew if he had a job or where he worked.” Jason Kandel, (818) 546-3306 [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
