Cycling: Mitchelton-Scott binds seven riders longer
18.53 hours: Mitchelton-Scott has tied seven Australian riders longer. This includes Luke Durbridge, who has been part of the team since 2012.
The 29-year-old Durbridge is a four-time time trial champion of Australia. Cameron Meyer, reigning Australian champion on the road, extended his contract for two years.
Robert Stannard (22), Callum Scotson (24), Alex Edmondson (26), Damien Howson (28) and Nick Schultz (26) also signed a new commitment.
Football: Spain without Busquets in decisive duel
17.56 hours: The Spanish team must do it Tuesday in the decisive group match in the Nations League without Sergio Busquets. An MRI scan showed that the 32-year-old midfielder of FC Barcelona did not suffer any major damage to his left knee, but he must stay on the side. Spain and Germany compete in Seville for the group win and therefore placement for the final round of the country tournament.
Busquets was injured against Switzerland in Basel on Saturday. According to Spanish media, Busquets stands on the side for about two weeks with a slight stretching of a knee band. Trainer Ronald Koeman of FC Barcelona lacks the Catalan midfielder on Saturday against Atletico Madrid and next week in the Champions League against Dinamo Kiev.
Swimming: Suspension Australian Jack reduced to two years
14.33 hours: The International Sports Tribunal CAS has reduced the suspension of Australian Shayna Jack from four to two years. In the summer of last year, the 22-year-old swimmer tested positive on the banned ligandrol at a check outside the matches. Although Jack denied taking the drug deliberately, the Australian anti-doping authority imposed a four-year suspension.
The swimmer took two silver and two bronze medals on the relay numbers at the 2017 World Cup. Jack retired to the World Cup in South Korea last year, officially for personal reasons. Later it turned out that she had tested positive.
Jack went to the CAS to challenge her suspension. The case was dealt with in September. The Sports Tribunal finds it plausible that Jack did not deliberately take the prohibited drug. The swimmer will be able to take action again from 12 July 2021, but will have to skip the Tokyo Olympics.
Football: Kadioglu joins Jong Orange
12.33 hrs: Young Orange finishes the EC qualification without Ferdi Kadioglu. The attacking midfielder of Fenerbahçe has too much injury to go to Portugal for the last group match in the EC qualification. Federal coach Erwin van de Looi does not call for a replacement for 21-year-old Kadioglu and therefore travels to Portugal with 21 players. Kadioglu stayed on Sunday in Almere against Young Belarus (5-0).
Last month Jong Oranje assured himself of participating in next year‘s European Championships in Hungary and Slovenia. The team of Van de Looi managed to win all nine group matches and has a goal balance of 45-3. Young Portugal has 3 points less than the Dutch promises.
Previously Dani de Wit, Tyrell Malacia (injuries) and Abdou Harroui (positive corontest) left Jong Oranje. Ryan Gravenberch and Sven Botman moved last week from the selection of Van de Looi to the ‘big‘ Orange.
Tennis: “Tennis Bubble” for Australian Open in state of Victoria still uncertain
10.24 hours: The Australian Tennis Association’s plan to move the preparation tournaments for the Australian Open to the state of Victoria, has not yet been approved by the authorities. Prime Minister Daniel Andrews warned that fighting the coronavirus is a higher priority than creating a tennis bubble in the state where the city of Melbourne is located.
“ The Australian Open is definitely an important event, but avoiding a third wave of infection is perhaps even more important,” said Victoria Prime Minister.
The Australian Tennis Association unfolded Monday the plan to move the tennis tournaments of Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Hobart, Adelaide and Canberra all to Victoria. In this way, thetennis players avoid the tightened travel restrictions and play the warm-up tournaments in the same state. The players travelling to Australia first go into quarantine for a period and then can move freely in Victoria. “This gives us a guarantee that the Australian Open can continue,” said Director Craig Tiley.
But state premier Andrews tempered the enthusiasm for the tennis bubble. “It‘s not a foregone case yet. It’s a huge logistics company with complicated quarantine arrangements. I think we can let the Australian Open continue, but it will look very different,” says the Prime Minister, whose state has only recently emerged from a lockdown.
The Australian Open are scheduled from 18 to 31 January. The preparation tournaments are in the weeks before. Tennis Australia in its plan for the bubble assumes that about 500 foreign tennis players will be quarantined for two weeks upon arrival in Victoria. They must stay in their hotel, but have access to a tennis court. Coronates are part of protocol.
Football: Coronavirus hits South Korean football team in Vienna
09.13 a.m.: South Korea‘s national football team was hit by the coronavirus during the practice trip in Austria. Six players have been tested positive. The whole team quarantined at their hotel rooms in Vienna, reported team officials.
South Korea played against Mexico last Saturday without the six infected players and lost by 3-2, while Sterp player Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur was among the negative tested players and participated.
A practice duel with Qatar is scheduled for Tuesday. That match can continue if, according to the rules of FIFA, thirteen players who are not infected are available. The selection will undergo a new test round on Monday.
The six players infected with the virus are Kwon Chang-hoon, Lee Dong-jun, Hwang In-beom, Na Sang-ho, Kim Moon-hwan and keeper Jo Hyeon-woo.
Football: Norway does send football team to Austria
08.40 a.m.: Norway plays the match in the Nations League in Vienna against Austria on Wednesday. The Norwegian Football Association sends a new selection which will be led by the national coach of Young Norway, Leif Gunnar Smerud. That team will be presented on Monday.
The Norwegians did not play their planned competition against Romania on Sunday. The Norwegian government forbade the football players from flying to Bucharest. The selection of national coach Lars Lagerbäck had to be quarantined by the Ministry of Health after a positive corontest by international Omar Elabdellaoui.
Footballers were already ready for departure at Oslo airport when the announcement came in. Presumably, the duel will be transformed into a regulatory 3-0 defeat for the Norwegians, who are in full race for promotion to the A-Division of the Nations League. Even with that defeat, Norway can win the pool.
“ It was a tough task, but we are glad that the race can continue. Not only for sporting reasons, but also for fulfilling our obligations towards UEFA,” said a statement by the Union.
The temporary coach Smerud sounded combative. “I look forward to meeting the players who, in this chaotic situation, are willing to help the national team. It is now about preparing and performing well against Austria.”
Football: The Bruyne already talks about a longer stay at Manchester City
07.35 a.m.: Kevin De Bruyne talks with Manchester City for a longer stay at the club. This is what the Belgian international said at the Flemish TV channel VTM. He has played for the Premier League club since 2015 and has won two titles with City.
The 29-year-old midfielder does the negotiations himself. “In this situation, I can, because I would like to stay with City. If I wanted to leave City and the club wouldn’t want to, it‘s a situation where you need someone to mediate,” says De Bruyne, who still has a contract until mid-2023.
“I still have a contract for 2.5 years. We’re talking a little bit at the moment, but we‘re not far in the talks yet. There will be no difficulty in the negotiations, and that applies to both sides. Because that’s not how we are.”
