Boxing hall of famer Pernell Whitaker dies at age of 55 in car accident

first_img Source: The Guardian Pernell Whitaker, widely considered to be one of the greatest defensive boxers of all time, has died after being hit by a car. He was 55.Police in Virginia Beach said Whitaker was killed as he crossed the road at an intersection on Sunday night. “When officers arrived on scene they located an adult male victim who had been hit by a vehicle.The victim succumbed to his injuries on the scene,” a Virginia Beach Police Department spokesman said in a statement. “The driver of the vehicle remained on scene with police.”Whitaker was elected to the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2006, and was a champion in four weight classes: lightweight, junior welterweight, welterweight and junior middleweight.The American was known as a brilliant defensive boxer with many opponents struggling to lay a hand on him. He retired in 2001 after three defeats in his final four fights with but he was in his prime in the 80s and 90s.He also won a gold medal as a lightweight at the 1984 Olympics.He was a successful trainer after his retirement although he became involved in an ugly dispute with his mother over money in recent years. His youngest son, Devon, described his father as a “cool guy” on Monday.“That’s all I can say about him,” he told the Virginian Pilot newspaper. “I can’t really say how I’m feeling because I’m feeling shocked. I’m still trying to process everything that’s going on. But he was a cool guy.”last_img read more

Diego Costa sidelined for a month

first_imgChelsea manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Diego Costa may miss up to a month due to a hamstring injury.The striker hobbled off during Chelsea’s 2-1 win against Stoke City and was initially ruled out for a fortnight, with Queens Park Rangers and Manchester United the likely games he would miss.However, in this afternoon’s press conference, Mourinho confirmed that he expects Costa to play four out of the remaining eight games.”Only Diego is injured, everybody else is fine and ready (to play at QPR).”I think we have eight matches to play, if he plays four it is normal. If he plays three he is a bit below what I am expecting. If he plays five that is more than I am expecting. I am not concerned (by his injury).”last_img

Clippers stay alive with frantic Game 6 win at Utah

first_imgPaul theoretically could have been playing his last game as a Clipper, with free agency looming and Blake Griffin at home taking care of the big toe injury that will keep him out for the rest of the season.Through six games, Paul has averaged 27.3 points and 10 assists. At times he single-handedly helped the Clippers stave off defeat.On Friday, he had some help.Five Clippers scored in double figures, with defensive stalwart Luc Mbah a Moute helping out on the offensive end with 13 points to match DeAndre Jordan, who added a game-high 18 rebounds. And perhaps most significantly, Austin Rivers.The reserve guard was thrust into a surprise starting role in a desperation effort to neutralize the run-and-gun Jazz.He had logged just 18 minutes all series after missing 10 games dating back to March 30 with a strained hamstring. He played 34 minutes and drained a 3-pointer with 3:58 left in the game to give the Clippers a 14-point lead, their largest of the game.When the Jazz rallied to cut that lead to 93-86 with 1:51 left, it was Rivers once again coming up big. His corner 3 22 seconds later gave the Clippers a 96-86.Ballgame, right?Not exactly.The Jazz rattled off six straight points and forced Paul to commit his fourth turnover, a bad pass that skittered out of bounds with 1:07 left in the game.On the manic Jazz possession that ensued, Gordon Hayward missed a shot in the lane, Joe Ingles picked up the rebound and found Hayward for a wide open 3 with 48.5 seconds remaining that cut the lead to 96-93.After Paul missed a jumper from the top of the key and Jordan muffed the rebound the Jazz had a chance to tie, but Johnson’s shot caromed off the rim and the ball went out of bounds to the Clippers.Hayward led all scorers with 31 points while George Hill added 22 for the Jazz. However, Utah shot just 7-of-26 on 3-pointers and Ingles, a thorn in the Clippers side all series, was held scoreless in 32 minutes. Johnson finished with 9 points on 3-of-9 shooting after his final, potentially game-tying, 3 was off the mark.Paul made a pair of free throws with one second left to secure the victory and ensure the Clippers would play on.The core, what remains of it, of this embattled franchise will play at least one more game. SALT LAKE CITY>> When Doc Rivers prepared to address his Clippers in the small locker room next to the tunnel that led to the deafeningly loud stage that awaited them, he did not plan to focus so much on the particulars of Game 6 as he did a broader message.“I usually try to do it for … the whole team,” Rivers said. “Meaning the journey that we’re on.”Rivers loves to talk about the journey. So, where are the Clippers in theirs?Not at the end. Not quite yet.The Clippers held on for a 98-93 win in a wild Game 6 of their back-and-forth power struggle, which will now come down to Game 7 on Sunday at Staples Center.The Clippers led by 10 with 1:29 remaining before the Jazz scored seven straight points and had a chance to tie it, but Joe Johnson – Utah’s hero in their three wins in the series – misfired on a 3-pointer with 3.9 seconds remaining.On the brink of completing another playoff collapse and landing abruptly in the offseason, the Clippers instead flexed their remaining muscle to earn the chance to win the series at home and force a second-round matchup with Golden State.At the center of everything, of course, was Chris Paul. The Clippers point guard scored a team-high 29 points, including 15 in the first half.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Virginia changes sword handles in its logo because of reference to slavery

first_imgVirginia made a subtle change to its logo in an effort to remove a reference to slavery.In April this year, Virginia revealed three new designs, two of which featured sword handles. In doing so, the school deliberately made the handles of the sword a reference to the serpentine walls found on campus. At first glance it seemed like a nice nod to the school, but people quickly started to criticize the design. https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/c7/40/virginia-new-logo_1c3vc46c02c5n1plkolaxv2mfm.png?t=-1021544478&w=500&quality=80 https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/fd/4b/virginia-logo_16mr3t4xlb36h1egvsteusw113.jpeg?t=-1022266574&w=500&quality=80MORE: Ranking CFB coaches 1-130 ahead of 2020 Virginia athletics director Carla Williams announced earlier this week the university removed the curves that were added to the handles.Here’s Williams’ statement in full:After the release of our new logos on April 24th, I was made aware of the negative connotation between the serpentine walls and slavery. I was not previously aware of the historical perspective indicating the original eight-foot-high walls were constructed to mask the institution of slavery and enslaved laborers from public view. (Virginia Athletics) (Virginia Athletics)center_img As for how the serpentine walls are a reference to slavery, we’ll cite Virginia’s own report on that issue. In 2013, Teresa Sullivan (president of UVA at the time) formed the President’s Commission on Slavery to look into the school’s history. In 2018, a full report was created.From the report:[Thomas] Jefferson’s architectural plan for the University created distinct zones for the students and for the enslaved. The enslaved were to live and work in the basements and in the garden work yards where students were in theory to have little reason to venture.  … Even though the high walls of the gardens were designed to limit the ability of the enslaved to see beyond them and to essentially isolate the enslaved from contact with anyone outside the walls, they would not function that way in reality. The walls were also intended as barriers separating people owned by one faculty member or hotelkeeper from another and designed to make it easier for their owners to monitor their enslaved people.The report found that the walls didn’t work as intended, but they were built with the specific purpose of keeping enslaved people separated from the student bodt. So honoring those walls was a bad look to represent on the school’s logo, which is why Virginia ultimately removed them. There was no intent to cause harm, but we did, and for that I apologize to those who bear the pain of slavery in our history. As such, we have redesigned the logos to remove that detail. All other aspects of the logos will remain the same.The reference was subtle, but the change was minor enough where Virginia felt it was right to remove it. Over the last few weeks, I have worked to better educate myself and that education will continue.last_img read more

HEAVILY FAVORED RAYMUNDOS SECRET GOES GATE TO WIRE IN TAKING $51,000 SANTA ANITA ALLOWANCE FEATURE BY 2 ¾ LENGTHS UNDER FRANCO

first_imgHEAVILY FAVORED RAYMUNDOS SECRET GOES GATE TO WIRE IN TAKING $51,000 SANTA ANITA ALLOWANCE FEATURE BY 2 ¾ LENGTHS UNDER FRANCO; TRAINED BY BALTAS, FLORIDA-BRED GETS MILE ON TURF IN 1:34.19 ARCADIA, Calif. (Oct. 4, 2019)–Off at 2-5 and firmly in command throughout, Raymundos Secret registered an impressive 2 ¾ length front-running victory in Friday’s $51,000 Santa Anita allowance feature.  Ridden by Geovanni Franco and trained by Richard Baltas, she got a flat mile on turf in 1:34.19.“It’s nice to be two to five!” said Franco, who picked the mount up earlier today when Flavien Prat took off three mounts on the eight-race program. “She was very handy, very willing. Turning for home, she took care of business.”Eighth, beaten 4 ½ lengths in the Grade I Del Mar Oaks on Aug. 17, Raymundos Secret, a Florida-bred daughter of Treasure Beach, was heavily favored in a field of seven sophomore fillies and paid $2.80, $2.20 and $2.10.Owned by Sierra Racing and Sterling Stables, LLC, she picked up her third win from four starts and with the winner’s check of $30,600, increased her earnings to $61,571.“She broke her maiden back in January at Tampa Bay Downs for $32,000 (maiden claiming), and we bought her then,” said Baltas. “When we got her later that month, we just decided to give her some time, so she got about 60 days and then we brought her in and got her ready for Del Mar.“Because she broke her maiden for the tag, she was eligible for the starter race ($50,000, July 24) at Del Mar on July 24, which she won pretty easy (by five lengths).  We took a shot in the Del Mar Oaks and then we just regrouped and ran her here today. The way she ran, we’ll probably point to the Autumn Miss (Grade III, one mile on turf for 3-year-old fillies on Oct. 26).”Ridden by Drayden Van Dyke, Vibrance rallied well through the lane to be second. Off at 11-1, she paid $6.80 and $4.20.Courteous, attentive to the early pace with Joe Talamo up, proved third best and paid $4.40 to show while off at 11-1.Fractions on the race were 23.89, 46.77, 1:10.06 and 1:22.07.She’s Our Charm, who was assigned post position seven, broke through the gate twice prior to the start and was subsequently scratched by the stewards. At the time of the declaration, she was 25-1.last_img read more

It’s too bad because Kobe only had one practice while I’m really impressed with Ricci’s talent and skills.”Guiao added that there’s still a small window for them to include Trollano in the lineup if Clarkson’s accreditation isn’t approved.As for Clarkson’s status as a potential new player under Guiao, the head coach expects that it won’t be a problem for the 26-year-old Cavalier to acclimate himself to the team’s system.ADVERTISEMENT “I’m sure with his experience, his IQ, it would be easy for him to understand the system, it’s a very simple system that we have in the team,” said Guiao. “We still have a few days before the first game on August 16 so we’ll see how he’ll jell in practice.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
