Pandelela, 23, from Sarawak, who has previously won the award in 2011, and 2013, said her focus now was to improve her diving performance in the final three months leading up to the world’s biggest sporting event.
Meanwhile, national silat athlete Mohd Al Jufferi Jamari, who was named as Sportsman of the Year, described the award as a significant achievement for the sport of silat, which has generally been given less attention compared to other sports. Mohd Al-Jufferi and Pandelela each received a trophy, a certificate and a cash prize of RM20,000 from Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah.
Also present were Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin.
KUCHING: It’s 80 days to the third edition with Kuching Marathon 2016 poised to be the biggest ever marathon event not only in the city but also the state as well. According to event director Liew Tang Chieh, more than 10,000 participants are expected to set off from Padang Merdeka in the heart of the city on August 14 2016.
In comparison, only about 800 runners took part in the Sarawak Marathon in Bintulu last year. Liew told The Borneo Post that the event is already a proven winner in boosting the local sports tourism industry. Out of 7,500 in 2015, over 30 per cent or 2,264 were non-Sarawakians from the other states and 35 countries including Australia, Brunei, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, India, Indonesia, Japan, Singapore, the Philippines, Kenya, Britain and the United States.
Feedback from local industry players showed that most hotels and lodging houses in the city area were at full occupancy during the past two marathons. Organisers The Kuching Marathon Association said the event is set on becoming the biggest annual (non-musical) tourism event in Sarawak with Honda as the main sponsor.

Highlighting the mantra ‘Miri Boleh,’ she told The Borneo Post that her association will continue to scout more talent in Miri to take up the sport. Currently, she added, there is already a team of youngsters training and showing results who just need more intensive training and exposure. Over the weekend, Sarawak won the overall title at the 47th Mr Malaysia championships after lifting four of the fourteen major individual titles. KUCHING: Four secondary and seven primary schools participated in the Padawan district-level Integrated Special Education Programme Petanque Competition here recently.
The schools were SMK Matang Jaya, SMK Matang Hilir, SMK Batu Kawa, SMK Penrissen, SK Petra Jaya, SK Jalan Arang, SK Stapok, SK Temenggong, SK Tan Sri Datuk Haji Mohmed, SK Pelaman Sijigandar and SK Semenggok. The competition also served as a platform to select athletes to represent Padawan district in the upcoming state-level tournament.
Meanwhile, hosting school SMK Matang Hilir represented by Steward Jalak Ngedun and Sta Lauren Hawel was champion for the secondary school boys category while Deplinca Waynie Sika and Janie Jehal led SMK Batu Kawa to win the girl’s title. As for the primary schools, SK Semenggok with Mohd Zulfahmi Abdul Talib and Mohd Azwandy Apandi and SK Semenggok with Antanasia Fabio and Aricca Buli won the boy’s and girl’s competition respectively. Prizes were given out by headmaster Wahab Bujang who represented the Padawan District Education Office. The eight-time world champion from Malaysia would complete a hat-trick of titles in the PSA World Series finals if she were to win the tour’s revived flagship event in front of the Burj Khalifa, starting Tuesday.
David has, however, won only one big tournament in the 17 months since the last of her eight world titles, not long after which the Professional Squash Association lowered by two inches the height of the tin — equivalent to the net in tennis.
That may be an oblique reference to two hard-hitting young Egyptians, Nouran Gohar, the 18-year-old world junior champion, who beat her in the China Open in Shanghai in September, and Nour El Sherbini, the 20-year-old who succeeded David as world champion last month and is now world number one. David may need to atone for that loss if she is to qualify for the semi-finals for Gohar is in her round robin group. Sherbini is now the favourite in a major event for the first time and heads the other group.
They include a revival of the PSA World Series finals, for the women after a three-year interval. Mr Malaysia ‘Champion of Champions’ Fong joined by (standing, from left) Wee, Chia and other officials after the grand announcement. SIBU: Entrepreneur and fitness trainer Fong Hui Kong never imagined that his comeback could turn out to be so triumphant. The 36-year-old local born muscleman clinched the ‘Champion of Champions’ title at the 47th Mr Malaysia bodybuilding championships in the final showdown of all winners of the nine senior categories here on Sunday night. Fong, who topped the Lightweight category earlier in the competition, last made his appearance in the national tournament in 2013 held in Penang. In the months leading to this year’s national championships, Fong was also adjudged the best among all bodybuilders competing in both Mr Sibu and Mr Sarawak competitions. Fong’s victory helped the Sarawak contingent to secure their third consecutive ‘Overall Champion Team’ honour — the only state in the nation to have ever performed this feat. A beaming Sarawak Bodybuilding Association (SBBA) president Dato Wee Hong Seng was overjoyed that Sarawak exceeded their set target for the event. More significantly, Wee hoped that Sarawak’s Mr Malaysia ‘hat-trick’ would open the eyes of state sports authorities to the true potential and capability of the state in bodybuilding.
For the record, Kuching played host three times — 1974, 1983 and 1996 — while Miri hosted the 2005 event. SIBU: The tremendous value of sports has been highlighted by Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem. The national event was organised by Sibu Division Bodybuilding and Weightlifting Association (SDBWA) in collaboration with Sarawak Bodybuilding Association (SBA) and sanctioned by Malaysia Bodybuilding Federation (MBF). On the event and the body builders, Adenan pointed out that no one can build such amazing bodies overnight because one needs focus, commitment, discipline, dedication and willingness to sacrifice. Sarawak emerged as the overall champion beating 12 other states and teams from Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) and Armed Forces (ATM).

KUCHING: The Sarawak Sukma XVIII team received a big morale boost by winning the Pre-Sukma Lawn Bowls Tournament at the Sarawak Lawn Bowls Arena, Petra Jaya last Saturday.
They topped four categories, finished second in three categories and secured a third placing in one category. Although Perlis swept the men’s and women’s singles titles via Daeng Dhadry Dahasry and Daeng Dessy Dhabita Dahasry, Sarawak dominated the team events. Sarawak’s Abdul Rahman Aminuddin, Mohammad Adib Nazeem Nazaruddin, Mohd Samsullaulaiman Yacub and Muhammad Naqiuddin Durrani Nor Afandi topped the men’s fours and their counterparts Sharifah Syaza Nisrina Mumtaz Wan Jemudin, Nur Fitri Rosmadi and Nur Fitrah Rosmadi were victorious in the women’s fours.
Syaza paired with Nur Fithri Yaani Hamdin to capture the women’s pairs title while Jamiah Hasbi, Nur Aryan Bujang and Nur Fitrah Rosmadi won Sarawak’s fourth title. Perlis’ other two wins were in the men’s pairs (Mohamad Firdaus Fawzi and Daeng Dhadry Dahasry) and men’s triples (Azriff Iqmal Aris, Mohd Yusoff Imran Azalan and Faiz Najimi Noor Mohd Zakri). The Sarawak Back-Up squad grabbed the silver in the men’s triples through Mohd Fitri Afiq Jamsari, Mohd Zaim Murtadha Tahir and Luqman Nur Hakim Muhd Helmi, and finished third in the men’s singles, men’s pairs and men’s fours. The competition was used to test the newly completed green and served as a practical for the 26 technical officials for Sukma XVIII, who were also attending a Malaysian Lawn Bowls Federation (MLBF) Level II Judging course. Among those present at the closing ceremony were MLBF vice president Dato Mohd Shukri Ali, MLBF technical advisor Capt (rtd) Ahmad Shah and Salba president Awang Mahyan Awang Mohamed. Awang Mahyan (centre) with Ahmad (second right), MLBF deputy president Dato Mohd Shukrie (second left) and other officials giving the thumbs-up for the Sarawak Lawn Bowls Arena.
KUCHING: The Sarawak Lawn Bowls Arena has received the green light from the Malaysian Lawn Bowls Federation (MLBF) to host the lawn bowls competition for the 18th Sukma from July 22-31. This was confirmed by MLBF technical advisor Capt (rtd) Ahmad Shah who was in town to conduct the MLBF Level II Judging Course at the recently completed green at Petra Jaya.
Expressing satisfaction with the country’s third covered green after the stadia at Bayu Emas and Labuan, Ahmad said the two international-size greens at Petra Jaya were able to accommodate 32 teams at any one time. However, he said the State government would need to upgrade the facility if Sarawak wish to organise international competitions. Meanwhile, Salba president Awang Mahyan Awang Mohamed conveyed the association’s gratitude to the state government for providing the facility. It was learnt that the national team are planning to come to train here in preparation for the SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur next year. He added that Salba were planning to organise the Asia Pacific and the Asean lawn bowls championships after the requirements were met with. The two international events are expected to attract players from Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Macau, Japan, China, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Brunei, the Philippines and Singapore.
Denmark team celebrates the victory over Indonesia at the Thomas Cup badminton tournament in Kunshan, in eastern China’s Jiangsu Province. KUNSHAN, China: Denmark became the first European country to lift the Thomas Cup on Sunday, winning the final 3-2 against Indonesia, the most successful nation in the history of the biennial men’s badminton team championship.
Indonesia clinched both doubles matches but Viktor Axelsen, Jan Jorgensen and Hans-Kristian Vittinghus won their singles contests to power Denmark to an emotional triumph against the 13-times champions.
Vittinghus sealed the landmark victory with a smash down-the-line, triggering wild celebrations in the Denmark camp at the Kunshan Sports Centre in China’s Jiangsu province. The 30-year-old looked dazed after his 21-15 21-7 win over Ihsan Maulana Mustofa as team mates, many in tears, mobbed him before forming a celebratory huddle.
Axelsen gave Denmark a perfect start when he outplayed Tommy Sugiarto 21-17 21-18 in less than an hour. After conceding the first game, Sugiarto put up a better display in the second and led 18-15 before reeling off six points in a row to put Denmark ahead. Mohammad Ahsan and Hendra Setiawan won the first doubles against Mads Pieler Kolding and Mads Conrad Petersen 21-18 21-13 to draw level before Jorgensen put Denmark ahead again. The 28-year-old, who missed the semi-final against Malaysia with a hip injury, beat Anthony Ginting 21-17 21-12, celebrating his victory by baring his tattooed torso and throwing his shirt, wristbands and racquet to the crowd. Indonesia flexed their doubles muscle again through Angga Pratama and Ricky Karanda Suwardi to level the contest but Vittinghus remained calm in the final singles to clinch it for Denmark.
According to his son, Nor Effendy Rosli, his father was riding a motorcycle when it was involved in an accident in Jalan Kuchai Lama here at about 7 am. He said the prayers would be conducted at the Al-Ansar Mosque, AU2 here before the funeral at the Taman Keramat AU2 Muslim Cemetery after the Zohor prayers. Rosli was one of nine cycling athletes who carried the Malaysian flag at the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo together with Andrew Michael, Choy Mow Thin, Supaat Hamid, Salam Kamsari, Ng Joo Pong, Zain Safaruddin, Stephen Lim Tian San and Tuow Choon Boon. The 1964 Olympic Games was the first time Malaysia took part in the Games al after the formation of Malaysia involving the Federation of Malaya, Sabah and Sarawak, and also, Singapore (pulled out of the federation in 1965). Meanwhile, for another former national cyclist, Datuk Ng Joo Ngan, Rosli’s demise was a major loss to the nation, specifically cycling.
Li Xuerui of China holds the trophy of her team after the women’s finals group match in the Uber Cup badminton tournament in Kunshan, eastern China’s Jiangsu Province. KUNSHAN, China: Olympic champion Li Xuerui led the Chinese national squad to victory over South Korea at the Uber Cup final in China Saturday, securing the country’s 14th world badminton team championship title in dominant fashion. China rarely surrendered command over the court during its 3-1 triumph in front of a packed home crowd in the eastern city of Kunshan, near Shanghai. Li, the world number three, brushed off an early deficit after dropping the first game to seventh-ranked Sung Ji-hyun.
The Olympic gold medallist rallied back for the win by controlling the pace and keeping the South Korean out of sync with repeated drop shots in the 14-21, 21-13, 21-10 victory. Sixth-ranked doubles team Jung Kyung-eun and Shin Seung-chan from South Korea prevented a whitewash, powering through a 16-21, 21-17, 25-23 scrap against the world number four China duo of Tian Qing and Zhao Yunlei that clocked in at 94 minutes. Wang Shixian put China back in the win column as she exhausted Kim Hyo-min, moving the shuttlecock across the court at will during the 21-13, 21-12 rout. Following the win, Wang downplayed her individual efforts and Olympic ambitions as Rio approaches, saying she was proud to be “fighting for our team, for our national team”.
Chen Qingchen and Tang Yuanting delivered the third and final victory in the best of five series by beating Chang Ye-na and Lee So-hee in straight sets, 21-14, 21-16. With the championship sealed, the fans in attendance unleashed a deafening approval of the pair’s spirited performance as their teammates rushed onto the court to celebrate. The South Koreans, who were aiming to end their six-year drought at the Uber Cup, were unable to find their groove during the tie and suffered in the absence of their second singles player Bae Yeon-Ju, who was sidelined by an ankle injury sustained on court Friday night.
China has won three-straight Uber Cups and 14 in total since the team first started competing in the tournament in 1984. Malaysia’s Chong Wei Feng reacts after losing the fifth match of the semi-finals to Denmark’s Emil Holst 21-15, 21-18. KUALA LUMPUR: The Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) needs to carry out a transformation on all the players following the defeat of the county’s Thomas Cup squad in the semifinals in Kunshan, China on Friday. BAM former president Tan Sri Elyas Omar said Malaysia’s chances of winning the Thomas Cup in the next two or four years are still slim because Datuk Lee Chong Wei may no longer be playing with the team. He pointed out that in the team there must be two players in the singles and doubles who were strong and the badminton parent body should focus on young players aged between 17 and 19 starting from now. He said BAM must prepare the players for another six more years by giving exposure at the international level as well as training for the youth players under their care. Besides giving exposure to the young players, the top leadership of BAM must also assist the players in terms of psychology so that mentally, the players were always in a state of preparedness and were inspired. Elyas, 80, said that the look on the faces and spirit of the national players after the victory by Chong Wei and the first doubles pair of Tan Wee Kiong-Goh V Shem against Denmark yesterday did not show that they wanted victory. He said, Chong Wei and Tan-Goh had demonstrated a strong fighting spirit, so the country’s professional doubles pair of Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong should not have given an easy victory after winning the first set yesterday. In the thrilling semifinal, world number two Chong Wei put his teammates on the winning path after grinding down reigning European champion Viktor Axelsen in a 23-21, 21-18 win. Goh V Shem and Tan Wee Kiong maintained the lead with an exhausting pace against Mathias Boe and Mads Conrad-Petersen with leaping overhead smashes in their 21-18, 21-18 win.
Down two points,  Hans-Kristian Vittinghus wrestled back momentum from the Malaysians by remaining patient during lengthy rallies with Iskandar, whittling away his opponent’s stamina for the 21-18, 21-18 comeback. Kim Astrup and Anders Skaarup Rasmussen kept the Danes in the tournament with a 10-21, 21-8, 21-13 win over  Kien Keat and Boon Heong.
In the dramatic fifth match of the tie, Emil Holst clinched the Danes’ final berth with a 21-15, 21-18 win over Chong Wei Feng.
MIRI: With 61 days to the 18th Sukma, the call has gone out for athletes and volunteers to intensify their preparation. He made the call at the ‘Meet and Greet’ event for the upcoming Sukma at Bintang MegaMall here yesterday. An official target of 72 gold medals has been set for the state contingent taking part in the 24 sports of the 18th Sukma to be held in Sarawak from July 22-31. Telling the volunteers to ensure that “every preparation and arrangement are in order”, he added. Lee, who is also Assistant Minister of Tourism, also hoped that Sukma would also attract sport enthusiasts including their family and friends to come to Sarawak for the games and experience the unique and beautiful culture, nature and lifestyle of Sarawakians. The ‘Meet and Greet’ programme was organised by the State Sports Council working in collaboration with Lea Sports Centre and Bintang MegaMall Miri. Also present at the event were Ministry of Youth and Sports permanent secretary Kameri Affendi, Sarawak Sports Council director Dr Ong Kong Swee and Miri Resident Anthonio Khati Galis.
PARIS: World number one Novak Djokovic insisted Friday that he is not obsessed by the French Open, the only blot on his Grand Slam career. Djokovic, who turns 29 on Sunday on the opening day of Roland Garros, needs a Paris title to complete the career Grand Slam and win a 12th major.
But he has known nothing but heartache in the French capital, losing three finals in four years including last season when he was reduced to tears in a four-set loss to Stan Wawrinka. Djokovic starts his 12th Roland Garros against Taiwan’s Lu Yen-Hsun, the world number 100 who made the Wimbledon quarter-finals in 2010. Djokovic is seeded to face Tomas Berdych in the last-eight before a potential semi-final blockbuster against nine-time champion Rafael Nadal in what would be the 50th meeting between the two superstars. Their rivalry began in 2006 at Roland Garros and Djokovic has the edge at 26-23, claiming the pair’s last seven encounters since losing the 2014 final in Paris to the Spaniard.
But Djokovic is not looking too far ahead, desperate to keep a lid on expectations of a victory in the final which would also put him halfway to the first calendar Grand Slam sweep since Rod Laver in 1969. BAM former president Tan Sri Elyas Omar said Malaysia’s chances of winning the Thomas Cup in the next two or four years are still slim because Datuk Lee Chong Wei may no longer be playing with the team. He pointed out that in the team there must be two players in the singles and doubles who were strong and the badminton parent body should focus on young players aged between 17 and 19 starting from now.
He said BAM must prepare the players for another six more years by giving exposure at the international level as well as training for the youth players under their care. Besides giving exposure to the young players, the top leadership of BAM must also assist the players in terms of psychology so that mentally, the players were always in a state of preparedness and were inspired. Elyas, 80, said that the look on the faces and spirit of the national players after the victory by Chong Wei and the first doubles pair of Tan Wee Kiong-Goh V Shem against Denmark yesterday did not show that they wanted victory.
He said, Chong Wei and Tan-Goh had demonstrated a strong fighting spirit, so the country’s professional doubles pair of Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong should not have given an easy victory after winning the first set yesterday. KUCHING: To prime the state’s elite players for professional tennis, the Sarawak Lawn Tennis Association (SLTA) is planning to organise a Men’s Futures or a Challenger event here next year. SLTA president Dato Patrick Liew said the association is expecting to secure funding from some positive sponsors to organise a Men’s Futures US$10,000 or US$15,000 or even a Challenger US$50,000.
Liew said this would benefit local players like Mohd Assri Merzuki, Ariez Elyaas Heshaam, Rohaizat Achop Borhan Janang and Low Zhe Han as they can get wild cards to play in the tournament. He is confident the event would position Kuching in bidding for bigger and higher level tournaments. He said SLTA has been keeping in touch with the Philippines and Indian tennis officials on the hosting of Men’s Futures and Challenger events.
SLTA had organised a Women’s Futures US$10,000 in 2009, Men’s Futures US$10,000 in 2012 and Men’s Futures US$15,000 in 2013. Goh (front row – fifth left) flanked by Hassan (right) and Alias with officials and some of the athletes.
In appreciation of their excellent performance, they were treated to a luncheon at a leading golf club here on Wednesday, while new Assistant Minister for Land and Air Transportation and Safety Datuk Lee Kim Shin presented RM10,000 to the Miri District Education office for athletics development. Datuk Lee, represented by Councillor Ernest Goh, in his speech commended the athletes, officials, teachers and schools for their excellent run at state and national levels. Dr Hassan said the 24 Miri athletes secured four gold, six silver and eight bronze medals at the MSSM meet in Terengganu on May 4-6. Lim How Seng (Riam Road Sec) broke the national discus record while three other gold medallists included his two schoolmates Voon Wei Jing (shotput) and Lee Say King (javelin) while Nurhaziqah (Sekolah Sukan Sabah) won the triple jump gold. In a cliff-hanger finish at the MSSM meet, Selangor edged Sarawak by 14 to 13 gold medals to capture the overall title, putting an end to Sarawak’s six-year reign. The new champions, who last won the title in 2000, also denied Sarawak its 20th title in the last 24 years. Admission is free to the public to watch the free-sparring event of the 26th Nanyang Wushu ‘Kung-Fu’ Festival which starts today (May 21) at Crown Towers. NWFS instructor-in-chief Prof Dato Sri Dr Song Swee Hee said the festival, which is a series of kungfu competitions, will feature more than 510 wushu exponents competing in events such as kung-fu patterns, cudgel display, broadsword display and ‘sanshou’ (free-sparring).
Indonesia’s Angga Pratama (left) and Ricky Karanda Suwardi celebrate after winning the doubles in the Thomas Cup. KUNSHAN, China: Indonesia beat South Korea 3-1 on Friday to reach the Thomas Cup final and raise hopes of their first victory in 14 years in a competition they once dominated.
Indonesia, who have won the men’s team tournament a record 13 times, proved too strong for South Korea, who stunned hosts China a day earlier. But Indonesia rallied in the following match, with Mohammad Ahsan and Hendra Setiawan securing a 21-15, 21-12 win over Lee Yong-dae and Yoo Yeon-seong. Anthony Ginting put South Korea on the brink with a 21-18, 21-18 victory over Lee Dong-Keun before doubles pair Angga Pratama and Ricky Karanda Suwardi beat Kim Gi-jung and Kim Sa-rang 21-15, 21-18. In the women’s Uber Cup competition, Olympic champion Li Xuerui led China into the final as she won a hard-fought three-gamer against India’s Saina Nehwal.
The world number three struggled to her find her groove but eventually established a rhythm, prevailing 21-15, 12-21, 21-17 against the 2012 Olympic bronze medallist. Fu Haifeng (left) and Zhang Nan of China reacting after their men’s doubles quarter finals group match against Lee Yong Dae and Yoo Yeon Seong of South Korea in the Thomas Cup. KUNSHAN, China: China’s all-conquering badminton coach Li Yongbo was urged to step down by angry fans after a shock Thomas Cup exit threw their Olympic preparations into chaos. Spectators hissed and shouted “Li Yongbo quit!” as China lost 3-1 to South Korea in the Thomas Cup quarter-finals in Kunshan, near Shanghai. One weeping and hysterical supporter had to be escorted out by security as world number one Chen Long and then two doubles pairs flopped at the team championships. The result augurs badly for China’s Olympic campaign in Rio de Janeiro, four years after they became the first country to win all five gold medals.
China, led by the militaristic Li, have dominated badminton for the past decade but unease is growing that the golden age may be coming to an end. Chinese great Lin Dan won his match against Lee Dong-Keun but it hasn’t been a convincing tournament for the 32-year-old Olympic champion, who earlier dropped a game against French unknown Lucas Corvee. China’s women safely reached the Uber Cup final but competition will be intense for Rio singles gold, with Spain’s Carolina Marin and Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand among the top contenders. Top-ranked Chen admitted he suffered an attack of the nerves in his 87-minute scrap with South Korea’s Son Wan-ho, which ended 12-21, 21-16, 15-21 late on Thursday.
Chen, who was also taken to three games by Japan’s Sho Sasaki in the group phase, said he needed to relax as the Olympics approach. Chen said he acutely felt the strain of being the world number one, a position which means that every opponent is trying to take him down. China’s men now face the challenge of regrouping before Rio, where they will be defending not only their Olympic titles, but also their coach’s legacy. Philippine boxing star and Senator Manny Pacquiao waves to supporters after being proclaimed by elections officials as one of the new members of the upper house of Congress in Manila, Philippines. MANILA: Philippine boxing hero turned senator Manny Pacquiao said Thursday he supports a plan by the newly elected president to impose the death penalty, a proposal that has been met with strong opposition in the Catholic nation. Speaking after he was sworn into office, the high school dropout and devout evangelical Christian said he supported capital punishment because it was sanctioned by his faith. Tough-talking Philippine president-elect Rodrigo Duterte has vowed to restore the death penalty as part of a campaign pledge to stamp out crime, a plan opposed by the Church and rights groups. Pacquiao, who garnered more than 16 million votes in last week’s national election, has vowed to take his political duties seriously after coming under fire for an undistinguished stint in the House of Representatives. Analysts say the retired boxer has an eye on the presidency and his period in the senate is a possible stepping stone for the top office. His performance in parliament was roundly criticised due to his frequent absences as he trained for boxing matches, hosted television shows and even dabbled in professional basketball.


Despite the retired boxer’s political ambitions, Philippine sports officials have said they want the 37-year-old to go to the Rio Olympics in August if professional boxers are permitted to compete. Malaysia’s Iskandar Zulkarnain Zainuddin returns a shot during the Thomas Cup quarter-finals match against Hsu Jen Hao of Taiwan. KUNSHAN, China: Malaysia strolled into the semifinals of the 2016 Thomas Cup Finals after convincingly beating Taiwan 3-1 in a quarterfinal tie at the Kunshan Sports Centre here yesterday, but not without a scare midway.
With the victory, Malaysia took a step closer to qualifying for the men’s final but will have to wait for the outcome of the match between Japan and Denmark to know who their semifinal opponent will be.
With the tie level at 1-1, Iskandar Zulkarnain Zainuddin came on court for the second singles and put up a sizzling performance to defeat Hsu Jen Hao 21-8, 21-13 and regain Malaysia’s advantage. Meanwhile, Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) technical director Morten Frost Hansen praised Iskandar for his outstanding performance throughout the crucial stages. Chong Wei when met said the entire squad were unaware of their opponent until yesterday morning because the draw was only done at 1am after all the group matches were completed.
Meanwhile, there was Uber Cup heartbreak for Ratchanok Intanon as Thailand crashed out against India.
But Pusarla V Sindhu made short work of Busanan Ongbumrungphan and Gadde Ruthvika Shivani beat Nitchadon Jindapol 21-16, 21-18 as India clinched it 3-1.
KUCHING: The state contingent is confident of bringing home five gold medals in this year’s 47th Malaysia Bodybuilding Championship, which starts in Sibu today. Any Olympic athlete or professional athlete, or high school oruniversity athlete, or even a child on a sports team for that matter, has a coach. Per questo momento di grande cambiamento dentro e fuori di noi che tutti stiamo attraversando. In questo processo di evoluzione cominciamo ad “accorgerci”, anche se non lo sappiamo descrivere, che c’e qualcosa in piu, qualcosa di diverso verso cui si stiamo muovendo. Il viaggio verso il risveglio della nostra essenza puo a volte farci sentire confusi o spaesati.
Aiutata dalla numerologia grazie alla quale ogni partecipante potra riconoscersi in caratteristiche sue proprie, latenti che vogliono essere liberate, ho creato questo percorso che e alla sua 2^ edizione. 5 SERATE a tema per ricondurci in un vero e proprio VIAGGIO ESPERIENZIALE alla connessione con la nostra ESSENZA. Se pensi sia piu “Spirituale” andare in bici o con i mezzi pubblici a lavoro, ma poi ti trovi a giudicare coloro che vanno in macchina, sei caduto in una trappola dell’ego. Se pensi sia piu “Spirituale” smettere di guardare la TV perche annulla il cervello, ma poi ti trovi a giudicare coloro che ancora la guardano, sei caduto in una trappola dell’ego. Se pensi sia piu “Spirituale” evitare di leggere quotidiani e riviste di gossip, ma poi ti trovi a giudicare coloro che li leggono, sei caduto in una trappola dell’ego. Se pensi sia piu “Spirituale” ascoltare musica classica o i suoni della natura, ma poi ti trovi a giudicare chi ascolta la musica commerciale, sei caduto in una trappola dell’ego. Se pensi sia piu “Spirituale” diventare vegetariano, comprare cibi bio, praticare yoga e meditare, ma poi ti ritrovi a giudicare coloro che non fanno tutte queste cose, sei caduto in una trappola dell’ego.
Di una semplicita che puoi percepire unicamente quando chiudi i cerchi che la vita ti apre. Vivere assecondando questo flusso e un qualcosa che assomiglia ad entrare ed uscire da scatole incartate.
Diciamo che non vi e richiesto di avere sempre e comunque maestria e padronanza intima delle vostre vibrazioni, la cosa potrebbe farvi scaturire una reazione.
Il lavoro che propongo al centro Mind  basa su un approccio integrato del coaching con diverse discipline sia cognitive, che biologiche volte alla reale espressione del proprio potere personale.
Ed e adatto in generale a tutte le problematiche che bloccano l’acquisizione di un livello di soddisfazione e benessere migliore e stabile nella propria vita. La prima consulenza si svolge con una analisi della mappa della persona e una chiara identificazione della specifica attivita utile al tema su cui si desidera il miglioramento e alle caratteristiche della persona. Ecco perche ho pensato quest’anno ad una particolare consulenza che chiunque puo acquistare per se e per i suoi cari, per un amico a cui potrebbe essere utile. Su prenotazione – se proprio vuoi esagerare  la mappa puo anche essere elaborata per iscritto e ti  verra consegnata sotto forma di un libretto stampato e  impreziosito dalla rilegatura artigianale.
Cosi come le piante in natura, le Donne hanno la necessita di spogliarsi di tanto in tanto di tutti i loro orpelli, dagli impegni e soprattutto dalle enormi richieste che fanno a se stesse… per rigenerarsi. Accompagnata da queste splendide giornate dell’ultimo sole, MAMY MIND ritorna in questa stagione speciale con una edizione autunnale CONCENTRATA. Cosi mi e stato detto tempo fa da una persona a me cara, sicuramento dotata di un genuino buon intento ad aiutare gli altri. Ma non e di questo che voglio parlare… non sono io il soggetto di quel pensiero dissonante. Mi ricordano le lotte psicogenealogiche… ma se hai letto anche solo un semplice blog di uno dei migliaia di approcci olistici… sai che li e la trappola.
Credo che questo accada perche la maggior parte delle persone non conosce tanto bene nemmeno le dinamiche mentali legate al denaro. Se sei una di queste persone Come puoi fare allora a rendere il tuo buon intento un intento davvero supportivo? 1)   chiedi alla persona se ti sta parlando perche vuole un consiglio o solo per sfogarsi (e attieniti alla risposta! Non me lo chiedo tanto nel lavoro che faccio, perche li e chiaro che chi viene da me viene proprio per poter fare liberamente le sue scelte… io non do consigli.
Ma me lo sono chiesta tutte le volte che un mio familiare o una persona a me cara e stata male o ha avuto bisogno di sostegno… oh come e difficile in quei casi… Capisco cosa si prova! Ma io chi sono per “portarti dal mio coach” o “mandarti dal mio osteopatia” dall’ultima operatrice che ho provato? Ma non dobbiamo mai dimenticare che ogni volta che diamo consigli a qualcuno – forse – stiamo semplicemente mettendo la nostra vita dentro la sua. Se sei tra queste persone o ti e mai capitato di essere consigliere o soggetto consigliato in questo modo… rifletti… semplicemente ti chiedo di pensarci su. Voglio dirti che in questo mondo ci sono persone che dedicano davvero la loro vita a fare un lavoro che aiuti gli altri, senza farsi catturare dalle piu subdole regole del business. Voglio dirti anche che ci sono persone che si prendono la responsabilita al 100% di fare un lavoro “olistico”.
Voglio dirti che quando si SCEGLIE di aiutare gli altri per lavoro si da una naturale disponibilita non solo di tempo, ma soprattutto morale e umana di ascoltare, guidare… che bisogna saperlo fare. Voglio dirti che se credi in un mondo “migliore” devi guardare a 360° come usi questo, perche se da un lato lo usi a consumo e poi non lo alimenti, ma te ne tiri fuori… non sei che il prodotto proprio di questo mondo da cui vuoi distinguerti. Olympic qualifying for golf ends in seven weeks, at which time players will have to determine if medals outweigh mosquitoes.
For now, there is only concern - and Rory McIlroy is the latest player to say Zika is on his mind. In an interview with the BBC after his Irish Open victory, McIlroy said he has been reading up on the mosquito-borne virus, which has been linked to serious birth defects.
McIlroy is engaged, and indicated he and his fiancee might be starting a family in the next few years. Willett's wife, Nicole, had their first child just 11 days before he slipped on the green jacket. The International Golf Federation posted a two-page update on its website last month, and is passing along Zika-related material from the International Olympic Committee and the World Health Organization to tours and player liaisons. Andy Levinson, executive director of USA Golf, said on Tuesday updates from WHO and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are posted in the weekly bulletins left in lockers and on the Players Links website, where PGA Tour players get other pertinent information they don't want to miss - like tee times, and FedEx Cup points, and where to leave their courtesy cars. Two weeks ago at The Players Championship, the PGA Tour's doctor took part in one-on-ones with players about Zika. Vijay Singh made a passing reference to Zika last month when the 53-year-old Fijian decided not to play.
The other players to pull out - Adam Scott, Louis Oosthuizen, Charl Schwartzel - cited a busy schedule or family priorities. Ask a player a question, and there's bound to be an answer, even if it's not entirely informed. IGF executive director Antony Scanlon said he was in Rio de Janeiro a few weeks ago for meetings and saw workers spraying "an unbelievable amount of anti-mosquito" repellant around the various venues. He also repeated the timing - August is the tail end of winter in Brazil, and mosquitoes are not expected to be as prevalent. It could be another example that the Olympics mean more to the women, who rarely get a stage as large as this and have a stronger tradition of competing for country in what was the first truly global tour.
Various headlines made it sound as though McIlroy and Willett might skip the Olympics because of Zika, and while their answers allowed some wiggle room, the context of their statements suggested nothing has changed. This much is clear - golfers currently eligible for the Olympics are having to study more than hole locations and wind direction. Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy tracks a tee shot under the watchful eye of England's Danny Willett during the final round of the Irish Open at The K Club, County Kildare, Ireland last Sunday. Just over six months ago, Knox got in as an alternate for his first World Golf Championship, scrambled to secure a Chinese visa and wound up winning the HSBC Champions in Shanghai. Knox had a one-shot lead with three holes to play in the Irish Open until Rory McIlroy hit two shots with a fairway metal that will be talked about in Ireland for years - onto the 16th green for a two-putt birdie (and a two-shot swing for the lead) and to three feet on No 18 for an eagle. It was his third runner-up finish since Shanghai - he went straight from China to Mexico and lost in a playoff to Graeme McDowell - and moved Knox to a career-best No 23 in the world.
Since missing the cut in his Masters debut, Knox has a pair of runner-up finishes and a performance at The Players Championship that brought him just as much attention for how he handled misfortune with humor and honesty. He was contending at the TPC Sawgrass when his tee shot on the island-green 17th came up a yard short. He called it an "epic fail." He said he would be "terrified" hitting that shot the next day (he hit the green and three-putted for his only bogey in a final round of 66).
Knox, who has lived in Florida since playing college golf at Jacksonville University, took up European Tour membership after winning the HSBC. But he faces a big stretch now - Wentworth, the Memorial, US Open, Bridgestone Invitational, Scottish Open, British Open over the next eight weeks, all of them with plenty of Ryder Cup world points available. The Symetra Tour is not even a third into its season, but Madelene Sagstrom already is in the record book.
The Swede's runner-up finish last week in the Gosling's Dark & Stormy Classic was worth $9,467 and pushed her season earnings to $103,181, breaking the money record that Cindy LaCrosse set in 15 tournaments in 2010. Some of the purses have increased to help Sagstrom become the first to break the $100,000 mark on the LPGA Tour's development circuit. Then again, she did in just under half the tournaments as LaCrosse, and the Swede even missed a cut. She has won twice, was runner-up twice and, except for that missed cut, hasn't finished out of the top five.
She has earned more money than the next three players behind her on the money list combined. As Bryson DeChambeau resumes his pursuit of a PGA Tour card, this much is clear: There are perks for winning the US Amateur.
Colonial will be his fifth PGA Tour event since turning pro, but he has used only three of the seven sponsor exemptions he is allowed as a non-tour member. DeChambeau was one of the two players chosen by former Colonial champions (the other was Kramer Hickok). The Texas Open didn't count against his seven sponsor exemptions because he got in as a top 10 from the previous week (he tied for fourth at Hilton Head). Depending on how the rest of the year goes, it's possible DeChambeau could reach the limit of 12 before he uses all seven sponsor exemptions. Meanwhile, he has the equivalent of 123 points in the FedEx Cup, and would need 361 points (150th place last year) to get unlimited exemptions the rest of the season. The Canadian team would have been Mike Weir and Stephen Ames, while Geoff Ogilvy and Robert Allenby would have represented Australia. Last week: Ariya Jutanugarn won the Kingsmill Championship for her second straight LPGA victory.
Last week: Rory McIlroy won the Irish Open by three shots over Russell Knox and Bradley Dredge. Notes: Four of the top 10 players in the world are members of the European Tour, but three of them are not playing the tour's flagship event - Rory McIlroy, Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose, who withdrew last week with a mild back injury. So far, 17th-ranked John Isner of the United States, Austrian 15th seed Dominic Thiem, world No 22 Bernard Tomic of Australia and Spanish veteran Feliciano Lopez, No 23 in the rankings, have all announced they are giving the Olympics in Rio in August a pass. Isner said that as well as a packed summer schedule, the absence of ranking points was a major factor.
The Olympics is often referred to as a fifth Grand Slam, but the four majors all offer 2,000 world ranking points to their champions. Djokovic, an 11-time Grand Slam winner, will be looking to improve on a dismal Olympic record when the Games open in Rio in August. He won a bronze in Beijing in 2008 and lost to Andy Murray in the semifinals in London in 2012 before dropping the bronze-medal playoff against Juan Martin del Potro. Isner is one of four top 25 players in the world taking a pass on the Games, which fall in the middle of the North American hardcourt season and in the build-up to the US Open.
Meanwhile, Djokovic said he hopes his "great passion for tennis" will finally earn him the one trophy he craves more than any other - the French Open. Twelve months after surprise champion Stan Wawrinka used his wondrous backhand to knife Djokovic's Roland Garros dreams, the Serbian was hoping he would be able to mend his broken heart by becoming the first man in almost 50 years to hold all four Grand Slam titles at the same time. Looking to achieve a feat that was last accomplished by Australian legend Rod Laver in 1969, Djokovic began his pursuit of the only major title missing from his collection with a no-nonsense 6-4 6-1 6-1 win over Taiwan's Lu Yen-hsun in the first round on Tuesday.
In 2012, the world No 1 also had a chance to emulate Laver but was thwarted by a rampaging Rafael Nadal in the final. Last year it appeared as if the stars had finally aligned for Djokovic when he safely navigated past Nadal and Murray to reach the final to face an opponent barely anyone thought would win. But it was not to be and Djokovic was left in tears after Wawrinka dominated him at every turn.
He certainly did that on Tuesday when he appeared to be a in a hurry to escape the cold and dank confines of Philippe Chatrier Court. In fact, facing an opponent who had not played a top-tier match since last October, Djokovic's only blip was when he dropped serve in the eighth game of the opening set. But after battling back to square the set at 4-4, the wheels came off for Lu and the 32-year-old only won two more games before Djokovic safely secured a second-round clash with Belgian Steve Darcis. Four of the hottest prospects in the men's game clashed at the French Open on Tuesday, with Croatian trailblazer Borna Coric and French teenager Quentin Halys reaching the second round.
Nineteen-year-old Coric, already a seasoned Tour professional ranked No 47 in the world, had the unusual experience of playing someone younger than himself in 18-year-old Taylor Fritz of the US.
While Fritz has the more powerful game and has risen from 821 to 67 in the rankings in less than a year, he is a novice on the European clay and was no match for Coric, losing 6-3, 6-1, 6-3. Coric will take on 23-year-old Australian star Bernard Tomic, seeded 20th at Roland Garros, for a place in the last 32. Halys, 19, was one of five Frenchmen to progress on Tuesday, beating South Korea's 20-year-old Chung Hyeon 6-1, 6-4, 6-4. Already tipped as a future French No 1, Halys preferred just to concentrate on his second round against tough Uruguayan Pablo Cuevas. As if surviving a five-set thriller against wily Czech Radek Stepanek in the first round of the French Open was not exhausting enough, the British second seed was then quizzed on why he ended his two-year partnership with Mauresmo. A sequence of interviews by the two Grand Slam champions seemed to suggest things had turned frosty between the duo before they parted ways. Murray won seven trophies under Mauresmo's guidance, including his first two titles on clay. However, the Frenchwoman has not been regularly on the circuit with Murray since giving birth to her son Aaron last August. Mauresmo had indicated that the union ended because she felt she could not "take things further anymore" with Murray before adding: "Andy is complex. Responding to Mauresmo's observation that he was a complex character, Murray admitted there are still things he needs to work on to curb his tendency to shout at his entourage when things are not going his way. Andy Murray reacts during a break in his 3-6, 3-6, 6-0, 6-3, 7-5 first-round victory against Radek Stepanek at Roland Garros stadium in Paris on Tuesday.
Russell Westbrook had 36 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists as the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Warriors 118-94 on Tuesday night to take a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference final. Golden State, which won a league record 73 games in the regular season, lost consecutive games for the first time this season and must win Game 5 on Thursday in Oakland to stay alive. Klay Thompson led Golden State with 26 points, but two-time league MVP Stephen Curry was limited to 19 points on 6-for-20 shooting.
The Warriors lost consecutive playoff games by at least 20 points for the first time since Games 2 and 3 of the 1972 Western Conference semifinals against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Golden State's Draymond Green, who was fined for kicking Steven Adams in the groin in Game 3, finished with six points, 11 rebounds and six turnovers. Kevin Durant added 26 points and 11 rebounds and Serge Ibaka added 17 points and seven rebounds. As for Westbrook, it was his first triple-double of the playoffs after posting 18 in the regular season. In the most unlikely of connections, Adams threw a bullet pass to Roberson near the basket for a dunk that gave the Thunder a 56-43 lead with just over four minutes left in the first half. Westbrook had 21 points, nine assists and five rebounds in the first half, and Durant had 18 points and six boards.
Thompson tried to keep the Warriors in it, scoring 19 points in just over seven minutes to start the third quarter.

Chinese boxing fans got a chance to shake the hand that shook the world when Mike Tyson visited Beijing this week.
And, as befits a guy renowned for his legendary capacity to stand and deliver, the former undisputed heavyweight king and "baddest man on the planet" came through like a champ. On Tuesday afternoon, less than a day after an exhausting 15-hour journey to the Chinese capital, Tyson charmed a massive throng of fans and media at the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall, site of the official weigh-in for Wednesday night's International Boxing Federation flyweight title rematch between champion Amnat Ruenroeng of Thailand and No 1-ranked Johnriel Casimero of the Philippines. Tyson was ringside for the bout at Diamond Stadium in National Olympic Park as a guest of the IBF, which is holding its annual convention in Beijing this week. In a chat with China Daily, the 49-year-old Tyson said his first visit to the historic site was an eye-opener. Between posing for photos and signing countless autographs, the youngest heavyweight champion in history (Tyson was 20 years and five months old when he dethroned Trevor Berbick in 1986) inquired about the health of Canadian ring icon George Chuvalo before expounding on Olympic boxing and the decision by the International Amateur Boxing Association to eliminate headgear.
Tyson hung up his gloves in 2005 with a record of 50-6, including 44 spectacular knockouts.
The International Boxing Federation sees a big future for the sweet science in China, and is backing it up with a five-year strategic partnership with LeSport.
Under terms of the agreement, IBF China, LeSport and Chinese promoter Rejoy Group will facilitate webcasting of upwards of 100 IBF pro tournaments throughout the nation, aimed at solidifying the Chinese fan base.
Liu said a recent independent survey indicated China has more than 80 million dedicated boxing fans, which underlines the business value of the new agreement.
One luminary who doesn't need convincing is legendary ring announcer Jimmy Lennon Jr., who was mobbed by fans at the weigh-in for Wednesday night's world flyweight title rematch between Amnat Ruenroeng of Thailand and No 1-ranked Johnriel Casimero of the Philippines at Beijing's Diamond Stadium.
The Pittsburgh Penguins made good on Evgeni Malkin's pledge to force Game 7 in the NHL's Eastern Conference final.
Captain Sidney Crosby had a goal and an assist, and Phil Kessel, Kris Letang, Bryan Rust and Nick Bonino also scored in Tuesday night's 5-2 victory that squared the best-of-seven series with the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-3. Game 7 is on Thursday night, with the Penguins hoping to reach the Stanley Cup final for the first time since 2009 and the Lightning looking to advance for the second straight year. Crosby stepped up with his third game-winning goal of the series when he skated around Tampa Bay defenseman Anton Stralman before snapping a wrist shot between goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy's legs for a 3-0 lead in the final minute of the second period. Rookie goaltender Matt Murray returned to the lineup after being replaced as the starter for Game 5 by Marc-Andre Fleury, but his 10th playoff victory did not come without a bit of suspense.
Brian Boyle scored twice in the third period for Tampa Bay, with one of the goals bouncing off Kessel before getting past Murray, who finished with 28 saves. Instead of flinching, the young goalie who turns 22 on Wednesday retained his composure down the stretch to help the Penguins avoid relinquishing a third-period lead for the second straight game. Tampa scored the first goal of the game midway through the opening period, but the call was reversed when a video review revealed an offside at the blueline. Jose Mourinho is on the verge of fulfilling his dream of managing Manchester United after Louis van Gaal's troubled two-year reign at Old Trafford came to a bitter end. Van Gaal said he was "very disappointed" to be sacked on Monday just 48 hours after leading United to victory in the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace. Missing out on a lucrative Champions League place proved the final straw for the club's United States-based owners, the Glazer family, and they didn't let United's first piece of silverware since the 2013 retirement of legendary boss Alex Ferguson stop them from wielding the axe. Mourinho was sacked by Chelsea in December after a miserable campaign marred by a series of rifts with the club's star players that eventually became intolerable to owner Roman Abramovich as the team, champion just months earlier, languished near the relegation zone. Now the 53-year-old will hope to restore his reputation by restoring the sparkle to United's own tarnished image.
Mourinho's agent Jorge Mendes is said to be arriving in Manchester on Tuesday to tie up a deal that has been widely reported in the British media, setting the stage for one of the sport's most intriguing characters to at last manage United after a glittering career that so far features 21 major trophies, including three Premier League crowns and two Champions League titles.
Former United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel believes Mourinho is the right man to get the club back on track. From the moment, Mourinho danced a jubilant jig down the Old Trafford touchline after a late goal from Costinha gave his Porto side the draw it needed to eliminate Alex Ferguson's men from the 2004 Champions League, the colorful and controversial Portuguese has seemed destined to manage United. He thought his time had come when Ferguson retired, but concerns over his volatile nature prompted United to turn to the more conservative David Moyes instead. But with that move proving a disaster and van Gaal faring little better, United's powerbrokers have decided to take a chance on Mourinho.
Pictured strolling with his former Chelsea assistant Rui Faria while movers took boxes away from his London home on Monday, Mourinho appeared the picture of contentment.
But he is a far less convivial figure once the battle lines are drawn, both with opponents and even his own players.
Having famously locked horns with the likes of Arsene Wenger and Rafael Benitez during his two spells with Chelsea, Mourinho will arrive at United just in time to resume hostilities with Pep Guardiola, who is about to leave Bayern Munich for his first taste of the Premier League as Manchester City boss. Mourinho, then in charge of Real Madrid, never wasted a chance to take a swipe at Barcelona manager Guardiola during their time in Spain. But it was Guardiola who had the better of it, with Mourinho winning just three of their 16 meetings. The duo will go head-to-head for the first time when United faces City in the pre-season International Champions Cup in Beijing on July 25.
By then, Mourinho will hope to have significantly improved an unbalanced and often lackluster United squad.
Paris Saint Germain forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Sporting Lisbon midfielder Joao Mario, Everton defender John Stones, Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic and Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann are reportedly among the names on his wanted list. But Mourinho, expected to bring Faria and goalkeeping coach Silvino Louro with him to Old Trafford, might also have to deal with scepticism from the United squad after a report that some senior players have already expressed concern the tactically conversative coach might prove too similar to van Gaal. Van Gaal's dull tactics frustrated United fans, while the players were reportedly infuriated by his habit of staging video review sessions in which he would criticize their mistakes in front of the team. If he can rebuild the confidence of his squad and make United champion for the first time since 2013, Mourinho may regard it as his finest achievement yet. It didn't count for much in the end - within an hour of the final whistle, it was being widely reported that Van Gaal would soon be out of a job - but the victory at Wembley Stadium at least gave him something tangible to take from his reign, and is his undoubted high point.
A commanding 3-0 win against Sunderland last September saw United climb the summit for the first time in two years. A fourth-place finish in the 2014-15 season saw United return to the Champions League after a one-year absence. And everything pointed to a successful season in 2015-16 when United surged to an easy two-legged win over Club Bruges in the Champions League playoff in August, with new signing Memphis Depay demonstrating his full range of skills and Wayne Rooney scoring a hat trick in the second leg to end a goal drought of more than nine games.
He appeared ready to embark on a relentless scoring run but instead, he managed only four more goals until January.
A failure to guide United into next season's Champions League badly damaged Van Gaal's stock. As it was, a second season in three years away from the European elite, missing out on the prestige and vast riches, and playing on Thursday nights in the Europa League just wasn't good enough for the Old Trafford hierarchy. When United was pitted in a group with PSV Eindhoven, Wolfsburg and CSKA Moscow, the draw was viewed as favorable for Van Gaal. Failure to reach the Champions League under David Moyes, Van Gaal's predecessor, meant United entered the League Cup in the second round for the first time in 19 years.
United was drawn to play third-tier MK Dons on the back of encouraging news, having confirmed the signing of playmaker Angel di Maria from Real Madrid in a 59.7 million pound ($84 million) deal - a British transfer record. Kattner's downfall topples another member of ex-president Sepp Blatter's inner circle at soccer's world body. Kattner, a 45-year-old German-Swiss national, had been acting general secretary after previous general secretary Jerome Valcke was also dismissed for irregularities.
The source said the money came from bonuses under a contract whose terms were kept secret from FIFA's audit committees. The internal FIFA inquiry, carried out by the Quinn Emanuel law firm, "covers the period from 2008 to 2014," the source said. According to another source familiar with the workings of FIFA, these bonuses would have been approved by the world body's financial committee, who decided how much the president, general secretary and deputy general secretary were paid. The president of this committee was former FIFA finance chief Julio Grondona, an Argentine and close ally of Blatter.


The Swiss justice ministry, meanwhile, told AFP that "as of today, Mr M Kattner is not under investigation" by prosecutors.
Swiss prosecutors are already investigating Blatter, who is serving a six-year ban imposed by FIFA, and Valcke.
Valcke was sacked and suspended from soccer activities for 12 years after being linked to the sale of black market World Cup tickets. Vardy scored 24 goals from a central role to fire Leicester to Premier League glory this season, only to find himself lining up on the left flank in a 4-3-3 formation in Sunday's Euro 2016 warmup match at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium. But after being moved into the center, he won a second-half penalty, which strike partner Harry Kane squandered, before netting a close-range winner in the 83rd minute to take his tally to three goals in three England games.
Vardy, 29, will miss England's next friendly against Australia in Sunderland on Friday as he is getting married on Wednesday.
Hodgson will recover his Manchester United and Liverpool players on Monday - including strikers Wayne Rooney, Marcus Rashford and Daniel Sturridge - after they missed Sunday's game due to club commitments. He was quietly optimistic about 18-year-old Rashford, his wildcard pick, who hobbled off with a suspected knee injury during United's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace in Saturday's FA Cup final at Wembley.
Kane's fifth international goal gave England a third-minute lead, but Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu levelled 10 minutes later by sweeping home from Volkan Sen's cross.
Kane wasted a chance to restore England's lead in the second half when he clipped the post from the spot after Mehmet Topal was adjudged to have fouled Vardy. But Vardy spared the Tottenham Hotspur striker's blushes by pouncing to score after Gary Cahill's header was parried by visiting goalkeeper Volkan Babacan. All the time Joe Pavelski has spent practicing his stick work has paid off big for the San Jose Sharks.
And the Sharks captain has his team on the brink of their first trip to the Stanley Cup Final. With the Sharks trailing by a goal, Pavelski tied the game late in the second period and then scored the go-ahead goal in the opening minute of the third period in the Sharks' 6-3 victory over the St. Joel Ward also scored twice, including one of two empty-netters, in the final minute for San Jose, which can close out the series at home on Wednesday night.
Pavelski leads all players in the playoffs with 12 goals and has three two-goal games, one in each series. The Blues are just 4-6 at home in the postseason, and failed to hold leads of 2-1 and 3-2 in Game 5. Pavelski was left alone in the slot on a power play at 18:33 of the second and beat Jake Allen to tie it at 3-3.
San Jose goalie Martin Jones allowed three goals on the Blues' first 13 shots, but stopped all seven shots in the third period. The Sharks scored first on Marc-Edouard Vlasic's first goal of the postseason from the point at 3:51 of the first period. Joe Pavelski (left) of the San Jose Sharks celebrates with Tomas Hertl after scoring a third period goal against the St. Echavarri and two other members of the Spanish sailing team were robbed Friday morning when five young men - "not more than 16 years old," Echavarri said - poked pistol barrels into the Spaniards' ribs and chests. Echavarri said they handed over their cellphones and other minor electronic gear, satisfying their assailants who ran off. The Spaniards, who have been in Rio for almost two weeks, were staying in Santa Teresa, a hilltop neighborhood popular with tourists and dotted with restaurants and bars, and a 20-minute walk downhill to the sailing venue.
Echavarri, who won gold in the 2008 Olympics, said he was also robbed at knifepoint in 2009 in the Copacabana Beach neighborhood while competing in the Volvo Ocean race. Street violence is endemic in Rio, a city separated by the wealthy - who live in the south and west of the city - and the poor who live in hilltop slums. About 85,000 soldiers and police will guard the city during the Olympics, twice as many as London four years ago. Beltrame recently cut $550 million from this year's security budget, about 20 percent, as Brazil battles the deepest recession since the 1930s. Security is near the top of a long list of problems plaguing Rio with the Olympics opening Aug 5, including the Zika virus, water pollution, slow ticket sales and budget cuts. Andy Hunt, who heads the World Sailing governing body, was in Rio on Monday and called the robbery "a very, very scary experience". Hunt said he would ask city officials and Rio organizers for more security, particularly around yacht clubs that line Guanabara Bay - the sailing venue.
Four-time major winner Rory McIlroy revealed on Monday he could reject the chance to play at this year's Olympics because of the Zika virus in Brazil. Fiji's Vijay Singh and Australia's Marc Leishman have already decided not to participate in the Rio Games because of the virus, while Adam Scott, Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel have pulled out for what they say are scheduling reasons. World number three McIlroy is keeping tabs on the spread of Zika, which is linked to brain deformities in newborn babies, and the Northern Ireland star conceded it is possible he might join the growing list of absentees.
Golf is back at the Olympics for the first time since 1904 and McIlroy, who has won the PGA Championship twice and the British and US Opens once, has been a big supporter of the sport's return. However, the risk of catching the virus is making the 27-year-old think twice about the trip. Luis Suarez is expected to travel to the United States to join Uruguay's national team for the Copa America, though he is likely to miss the start of the tournament because of a hamstring injury. Barcelona said tests on Monday confirmed that Suarez sustained a right-leg muscle injury in the Copa del Rey final against Sevilla on Sunday. The Argentine football association has extended its "condolences" to the family of a soccer player who died when he was accidentally struck in the head in a regional match on Sunday in northeastern Argentina.

Kyle Lowry scored 35 points, including a driving layup in the final minute, and DeMar DeRozan had 32 as the Toronto Raptors evened the Eastern Conference Finals by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 105-99 in Game 4 on Monday night.
DeMarre Carroll scored 11 points and Bismack Biyombo had 14 rebounds as Toronto improved to 8-2 at home this postseason and got back on level terms after big losses in Games 1 and 2.
After a 10-0 start to these playoffs, the Cavaliers are counting on home court advantage to help them reach their second straight Finals. Cleveland lost consecutive playoff games to an Eastern Conference opponent for the first time since dropping the final three games of the conference semifinals to Boston in 2010.
James scored 29 points and Kyrie Irving had 26 for the Cavaliers, who trailed by as many as 18 points. The Raptors led 78-69 to begin the fourth but Frye made consecutive 3-pointers as Cleveland opened the final quarter with an 8-0 run, cutting it to 78-77.
Toronto Raptors guard Cory Joseph blocks the view of Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals of the NBA playoffs at Air Canada Center on Monday. Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green has been fined $25,000 but will escape a suspension for his kick on Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams, the NBA said Monday. Green left the Warriors sweating on the prospect of a possible ban after kicking Adams in the groin during Golden State's rout to the Thunder in Game Three on Sunday. Golden State's management and Green had insisted the incident in the first half - which left Adams doubled over in pain - was accidental. Kiki VanDeWeghe, the NBA's executive vice-president of basketball operations, said Green's foul had been upgraded to a flagrant two - meaning he would have been ejected from the game if the officiating crew had given that ruling on the court. Thunder star Russell Westbrook had fueled the controversy by stating that the flagrant foul looked deliberate.
Green, however, said ahead of the ruling on Monday he did not expect to be suspended based on his in-game conversation with referee Scott Foster. Rory McIlroy eagled the final hole to cap his first victory of the season on Sunday at the Irish Open, the home tournament at which he had famously struggled over the years.
McIlroy's three-shot triumph over Scotland's Russell Knox and Bradley Dredge of Wales wasn't smooth sailing, but the Northern Ireland native prevailed with a 3-under 69 thanks to superb driving that allowed him to birdie the K Club's first three par-5 holes. Rory McIlroy holds the trophy after winning the Irish Open at The K Club, County Kildare, Ireland on Sunday.
McIlroy's 276-yard second shot on the 18th landed within three feet of the pin to the deafening cheers of tens of thousands who had braved downpours and hail showers to witness the moment. After calmly converting his only eagle of the tournament, McIlroy stood still and silent for a few seconds, then pumped both fists in elation. He had failed to make the Irish Open cut since 2012, and his previous best was seventh place in 2008.
McIlroy looked in danger of squandering his three-stroke lead at the start of Sunday's final round as Knox, playing alongside him, putted impressively while McIlroy wasted several opportunities on the greens, including a two-foot miss for bogey on the par-4 11th hole. When Knox birdied the 14th and 15th to seize a one-shot lead, McIlroy responded with arguably his greatest shot of the year - a go-for-broke drive across the River Liffey that landed improbably in the heart of the 16th green.
As the fans roared their approval, a rattled Knox struck his only back-nine bogey as McIlroy two-putted for a go-ahead birdie. He now faces three majors in the next 10 weeks - and described his Irish breakthrough as a needed psychological "catapult" to reclaim his best form.
Lightning storms caused four hours of delays on Saturday that forced a dozen players - including McIlroy, Knox and Masters champion Danny Willett - to complete the third round at sunrise on Sunday. Their day's combined 21 holes of golf took nearly 10 hours to complete as blue skies gave way to wintry monsoons that left fairways and greens waterlogged and carpeted with hailstones, causing two more suspensions in play.
Germany's Bernhard Langer continued his dominance of senior golf when he birdied the final three holes for a six-shot victory at the Regions Tradition in Alabama on Sunday.
The 58-year-old Langer shrugged off a slow start to the final round to claim the first of the year's five designated major championships on the 50-and-over Champions Tour. Langer started the day with a four-stroke lead and, after a quiet front nine, caught fire on the back with five birdies for a closing 5-under 67 on the Greystone course in Birmingham. He finished at 17-under 271 for his sixth career senior major, and now trails only Jack Nickalus (eight) and Hale Irwin (seven) on the all-time list.
Just last month Langer was only two strokes from the lead going into the final round of the Masters at Augusta National, though his quest to become the oldest player to win a regular major disappeared with a closing 79. Langer will not have to wait long for a crack at another major, with the Senior PGA Championship coming up this week in Michigan.
It is the only senior major Langer has failed to capture and with a win he would become the only senior player to seize all five titles. The 20-year-old from Thailand fired a nearly mistake-free 4-under 67 on Sunday to win the Kingsmill Championship by one shot for her second consecutive victory. The bad news for the rest of the tour is that she said this one was much easier to finish off than her first triumph two weeks ago. Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand is doused with water after winning the Kingsmill Championship at Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, Virginia, on Sunday. After two final-round meltdowns, Jutanugarn became the first Thai winner in tour history two weeks ago in Alabama. Last month in the ANA Inspiration, she had a two-stroke lead with three holes remaining and closed with three bogeys to finish fourth - two strokes behind winner Lydia Ko. In the 2013 LPGA Thailand at age 17, Jutanugarn blew a two-stroke lead with a closing triple bogey in a one-stroke loss to Park In-bee . On Sunday, she gave up the lead briefly after an early bogey but recovered quickly with back-to-back birdies, and played the final 16 holes in 5-under.
South Korea's So Oh finished was second after a 65, with Gerina Piller and Sei Young Kim two shots back. Jutanugarn closed the round by getting up-and-down from the right side of the green on the 18th hole, hitting her chip to within about five feet and rolling it in to become the first player with back-to-back wins since top-ranked Ko in the Kia Classic and ANA Inspiration. I will most probably undergo training abroad in the near future,” she told reporters after winning the award at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC), here, tonight.
I am also happy that UiTM has joined the bandwagon — a move that highlights the importance of sports and healthy lifestyle among its students. So too is Laura Massaro, the English woman who was world number one until the end of April, and Amanda Sobhy, the first American to reach the world’s top ten.
It includes compatriot Raneem El Welily, the world number one for a while last year, and a fourth Egyptian, Omneya Abdel Kawy, a former world finalist, as well as Camille Serme, the former British Open champion from France.
Never would I have guessed that my return would be this awesome,” he told The Borneo Post yesterday during a special interview at Kingwood Hotel — venue of this year’s national championships. The ‘Champion of Champions’ and ‘Best Contingent’ honours are simply the icing on the cake,” he said. We hope that with this three consecutive record win in Mr Malaysia, the SBBA could finally settle our longstanding issue — the takeover of the MSNS Gym at the civic centre.

And the last two days I was supposedly hitting back at Amelie's comments and disagreeing with everything that she said and that we had a really tough breakup," said Murray. Andre Roberson, a player the Warriors have ignored at times during the series, scored a career-high 17 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. The Thunder matched the most points they have scored in a first half in playoff history, a mark they set the previous game against the Warriors.
But the Thunder maintained their composure, led 94-82 at the end of the period and remained in control in the fourth. Westbrook had 36 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists for the Thunder, who can advance to the NBA Finals with a win in Oakland on Thursday. Pros are in the spotlight all the time; the Olympics should be reserved for pure amateurs who are fighting to make a name for themselves.

It's a great opportunity These are the type of circumstances where you have an opportunity to write your own story," said Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan. It got United back among the trophies after a three-year gap and gave the club a record-equaling 12th FA Cup title. A finish in the top four, coupled with winning the FA Cup, and Van Gaal might have limped on. United was eliminated at the group stage after losing 3-2 to Wolfsburg on Dec 8 in a match United headed into knowing victory was essential.
But the doomed European campaign was symptomatic of United under his guidance - the team appeared focused on defensive organization and lacked the attacking flair and creativity to break down stubborn opponents.

Running, one of the most popular sports in China, will be highlighted in the Sunshine Running Film Festival. On Costa Rica’s surf-fringed Central Pacific Coast, at Hermosa Beach, surf school Del Mar Surf Camp is adding “Personal Coaching Sessions” to all of its surf vacations and surf programs.“Adventures like surfing, or canopy tours, or even bungee jumping for instance, can create mental and emotional breakthroughs from the physical adventure,” said Life and Business Coach Paola Castro.

And if you’re faced with activities like surfing, you are physically challenging yourself.”Castro, Costa Rica born and also a surfer, uses the activity of surfing as a metaphorical window into the person’s life.

It is a practice that uses techniques from disciplines such as sociology, psychology, career counseling and positive development, to help people identify and achieve personal goals.
The Personal Coaching Sessions, led by Paola Castro, are an extra activity that participants can add on to “go beyond having just a traditional vacation,” says Maria del Mar. Personal Coaching will only be available at Del Mar’s Hermosa Beach location.Hermosa Beach, just south of the bustling beach town of Jaco, is Del Mar Surf Camp’s headquarters. The popular beach, with its consistent surf, variety of breaks and great exposure to swells, is famous with advanced surfers from all over the globe.
And, just a 5-minute drive away is the south end of Playa Jaco where beginners learn to surf in gentle and easy waves. A big plus is it’s only an hour’s drive away on paved roads from the capital city of San Jose and the international airport.Castro will coach in 60-minute sessions, and can continue with follow-up sessions after a person returns home using Skype video calls.
Coaching can focus on realizing dreams and goals, breaking free from fears, taking leaps of faith, reducing stress, improving health, etc. Castro gives practical steps for shaping behaviors to get results.“The thing with coaching is you need to be responsible for creating the changes in your life,” said Castro.
With all of our gratitude and so much love, we’ve created new special packages for you, hoping to make surfing with us more accessible and therefore continue to share our passion. Simple, beachy, self-guided and affordable, introducing Pacifico, Swell, and Estrella de Mar surf packages.
