first_img Loading… Olympic chiefs admitted Friday they face a “very big communications job” to soothe concerns over the coronavirus epidemic in the run-up to this summer’s Tokyo Games. The head of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) coordination commission insisted there was no danger of Tokyo 2020 being cancelled or moved, despite fears over the fast-spreading virus which has killed nearly 1,400 and infected around 64,000 – most of them in China. A big communication job lies ahead as the virus spreads ahead of Tokyo 2020 But he said the IOC will send out information packs to reassure athletes that it’s safe to come into contact with competitors from China. “The advice we have received from the World Health Organization (WHO) is that there is no case for a contingency plan to cancel or move the Games,” John Coates told reporters after a project review meeting. “Certainly it’s a very big communications job that needs to be undertaken,” he added, noting that China is set to send more than 600 athletes to Tokyo. “But we hear that most of the Chinese athletes are now out of China. I don’t know how many were to be involved in test events here, but I don’t see a problem if they’re coming from another country.” Coates promised lessons would be learned from Rio four years ago, when concerns over the mosquito-born Zika virus led to several top athletes pulling out of the Olympics, including golfers Jason Day and Rory McIlroy. “The WHO pointed out the likelihood of Zika being a problem at the time of the Games was very low,” he said. “But we did lose some athletes – Jason Day’s wife was pregnant. We didn’t communicate the information well enough.” Tokyo organisers have slammed “fake news” and scare-mongering over the coronavirus outbreak for causing panic ahead of the Games, which open on July 24. More than 25 countries have confirmed cases of the flu-like disease, which the WHO has declared a global health emergency. – ‘Tokyo 2020 on track’ – Promoted Content9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooWho’s The Best Car Manufacturer Of All Time?You’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of AnimeWe’re Getting More Game Of Thrones: Enter House Of The Dragon!8 Fascinating Facts About CoffeeTop 10 Most Romantic Nations In The World7 Of The Wealthiest Universities In The WorldTop 7 Best Car Manufacturers Of All TimeWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Insane 3D Spraying Skills Turn In Incredible Street Art7 Non-Obvious Things That Damage Your Phone8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its Growthcenter_img Japan, which registered its first fatality on Thursday of someone who had tested positive for the virus, is one of the worst-hit countries outside of mainland China. There have been 33 cases on land and more than 200 positive tests of people quarantined on a cruise ship floating off Yokohama since last week. Coates conceded that there could be fear among athletes about facing competitors from China. “We did talk about that,” said the Australian. “The IOC is going to ensure (information) kits are sent to all national committees to explain what’s happening around the world where Chinese athletes are competing,” he added. “But I can confirm Tokyo 2020 remains on track,” insisted Coates, who revealed IOC president Thomas Bach will lay a wreath at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park on the sidelines of the May 19-20 executive project review. The virus has already impacted sporting events in Asia, including Olympic qualifiers for boxing and basketball – both in China. Formula One’s Shanghai Grand Prix, scheduled to take place in April, has been postponed with the inaugural Vietnamese Grand Prix also under threat.

first_imgWest Brom will pay tribute to former Baggies striker Jeff Astle by wearing a replica 1968 FA Cup final kit against Leicester next month. Astle, who scored 174 goals in 361 games for the club, netted the winner as Albion beat Everton 1-0 at Wembley. The kit will be part of ‘Astle Day’ on April 11. Astle’s family will launch a foundation on the day in his name, which will promote care of other sufferers and research and education into CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) – a brain condition normally linked to boxing, from which Astle passed away aged 59 in 2002. Press Associationcenter_img The Baggies confirmed it is only the second time the Premier League has granted permission for a kit change following Manchester United’s switch to a retro design for the 50th anniversary of the Munich air disaster in 2008. Chairman Jeremy Peace said: “We promised at the start of the season to honour both Jeff and his family’s efforts to raise awareness of an important issue by dedicating a home game to him – and it promises to be a special day. “We are absolutely delighted the Premier League have granted permission for this kit change as an additional salute to a footballer who remains much loved. “We are mindful that it is only the second time this has happened, which I think says much about Jeff’s standing and the gravity football places on the issues his death raised.” Albion will wear shirts numbered 2-11, with a blank goalkeeping jersey to mirror the one worn by John Osborne at Wembley. PFA chairman Gordon Taylor said: “We were very pleased to be able to assist the Astle family with the foundation. “We note the help and support of West Bromwich Albion in helping to highlight this very important issue.” And FA chairman Greg Dyke, who has met with the family to discuss their campaign, added: “I am delighted to see West Bromwich Albion dedicate this day to their great hero, Jeff Astle.

first_imgThe Florida Education Association has filed a lawsuit over the state’s order to reopen schools by fall.The lawsuit is against Gov. Ron DeSantis, Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran, the Florida Department of Education, the Florida State Board of Education and Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez.The FEA said the lawsuit intends to stop the reckless and unsafe reopening of public school campuses as coronavirus infections surge statewide.“Gov. DeSantis needs a reality check, and we are attempting to provide one,” said FEA President Fedrick Ingram in a statement. “The governor needs to accept the reality of the situation here in Florida, where the virus is surging out of control. He needs to accept the evolving science.”“It now appears that kids 10 and older may pass along the coronavirus as easily as adults,” Ingram went on to say. “Everyone wants schools to reopen, but we don’t want to begin in-person teaching, face an explosion of cases and sickness, then be forced to return to distance learning.”The lawsuit claims that requiring students to return to class violates Florida’s Constitution, which requires schools to be safe and secure.last_img read more

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“The game just slowed down, got back to the basics, did my job,” Clarkson said.The back-to-back wins gave the Lakers (17-29) six victories over their past 10 games, and stretched their home winning streak to five games with the erstwhile rival Boston Celtics coming to town on Tuesday.“Whatever he’s doing he should probably keep doing it,” rookie forward Kyle Kuzma said. “It was good, we need him to score off the bench.”The Lakers have the NBA’s third-highest scoring bench, with Clarkson contributing 14.3 per game. Before his recent outburst, Clarkson had been in a bit of a slump, averaging just 10.4 points over his previous 10 games, including just one 20-point performance.“He is obviously a very gifted offensive player and I think he is feeling good about himself right now,” Coach Luke Walton said. The uptick in production from the former second-round pick is also coming at the right time for the Lakers’ front office. The consensus around the NBA seems to be that the Lakers would like to trade Clarkson before the Feb. 8 deadline, and reallocate the $25 million they owe him over the next two seasons toward a top free agent in the offseason.The Lakers would likely be looking for no less than a first-round draft pick in addition to salary cap relief.It’s the paradox of Clarkson, a productive reserve who makes the Lakers better now, but might not be with the Lakers by the time the All-Star break hits.That’s something the Lakers have tried to block out, with Walton saying on Friday that “the message is always the same – you can’t control it. If you get traded, you get traded.”Clarkson figures largely into the Lakers’ immediate plans, if not long term. Rookie point guard Lonzo Ball has not resumed practicing after spraining his left knee on Jan. 13 in Dallas, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is listed as questionable against the Celtics.Those factors have some fans clamoring for Clarkson to make an appearance in the starting lineup, something Walton said “could” happen.“I wouldn’t count on it,” the Lakers coach said. “But he could.”Instead, Walton has embraced the pairing of Clarkson with backup point guard Alex Caruso, who played a career-high 31 minutes off the bench on Sunday.“I do a lot of the little things and a lot of the hustle plays and play hard defense,” Caruso said. “Not that JC doesn’t, but he’s more of an offensive guy and on that side I take a backseat to him. So I think we just complement each other really well.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Jordan Clarkson might have played more games in a Lakers uniform than anyone else in the locker room, but few have been like the pair he strung together over the weekend.First came the 33-point explosion with seven rebounds and seven assists in a win over Indiana.Next was the 20-point blowout against the New York Knicks on Sunday. Clarkson had 29 points, 10 assists, six rebounds and three steals to carry the Lakers.
