Seven sports to challenge cut from UK’s Olympic funding

0 Comments

first_img(REUTERS) – Seven sports, including badminton, are looking to challenge UK Sport’s decision to stop funding their programmes for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.Despite Chris Langridge and Marcus Ellis winning the men’s doubles bronze in last year’s Olympics, badminton had its funding cut and is among five sports which were funded for Rio 2016 and are ready to challenge the decision.“We’ve got a really strong case. Our understanding is that UK Sport doubt our Olympic medal credentials,” Badminton England chief executive Adrian Christy told BBC Sport.“However, we have players who have not only won Olympic medals but also won world tour titles and super-series titles and these are the biggest events in our sport and we are regularly beating the best in the world.”The five sports are joined by goalball and table tennis — not supported in 2016 — as the administrators believe these sports contain a few medal prospects for the 2020 games, according to British media.Apart from badminton, goalball, table tennis, archery, fencing and weightlifting all had until yesterday to bid for a reprieve.Great Britain finished second in the medal table at the Rio Olympics, as they picked up 67 medals, including 27 gold medals.last_img read more

Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield But every nine-game winning streak was once a three-game winning streak, which is what the Angels now take into Thursday’s off day. On Friday they open a three-game series against the Oakland A’s, who now hold the second AL wild-card spot. The Angels (58-58) have not seen the A’s since June 17.The Angels are hoping they’ll have both Mike Trout and Tyler Skaggs back for this weekend. Trout, who has now missed seven straight games because of a jammed right wrist, is expected to return to the lineup on Friday. Skaggs, on the disabled list with a left groin issue, said he’s ready to start on Saturday, the first day he’s eligible.Beyond getting back two of their best players, the Angels finally have some momentum from a winning streak.“It’s always good sweeping a series, my teammates and everyone are upbeat,” Jaime Barría said through an interpreter. “It’s a way better atmosphere.”Barría pitched 5-2/3 innings on a sweltering afternoon, not allowing multiple baserunners until he got pulled in the sixth. It was Barría’s best outing since a June 1 game when he pitched six scoreless innings. Jefry Marte also had a pair of hits, driving in a run in the first and doubling and scoring a run on a José Briceño hit in the sixth.The Angels scored 23 runs in three games against the White Sox, all without Trout.“You never want to play too many games without a guy like Mike, but we’ve been forced to and we’ve been holding our own,” Manager Mike Scioscia said. “In this series, we definitely looked good in the batter’s box.”Related Articles PreviousANAHEIM, CA – AUGUST 08: Manager Mike Scioscia congratulates Shohei Ohtani #17 of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim after defeating the Detroit Tigers 6-0 in a game at Angel Stadium on August 8, 2018 in Anaheim, California.

NFL Draft 2019: Kyler Murray to run 40, have full workout at pro day

first_img Kyler Murray’s agent bashes report on quarterback’s leadership, interviews Quarterback Kyler Murray will take part in a full workout during Oklahoma’s pro day March 13 after opting to sit out on-field drills during the combine last week in Indianapolis.According to NFL Network, Murray will run the 40-yard dash and participate in regular passing workouts. The Heisman Trophy winner also is expected to be measured again after coming in at 5-10 1/8 and 207 pounds last month. He became the shortest quarterback measured at the combine since 2003. There were some concerns about Murray’s measurements entering the combine as he previously was measured at 5-9 7/8 by Oklahoma staffers last fall during his junior season, which is a bit short of the NFL’s traditional quarterback template.With April’s draft quickly approaching, speculation as to where Murray will land has heated up. The Oklahoma product has been linked to the Cardinals, and NFL Network recently reported “people are beginning to believe almost universally” around the league that Murray will go first overall to Arizona.  Related Newscenter_img Murray revealed he planned to meet with the Cardinals at the combine, although he had meetings planned with other teams as well.last_img read more
