Skating: Robinson Loves Schiffrin winning the 70th World Cup
1.48 pm: Alice Robinson won the last giant slalom for the World Cup of the season. 19-year-old New Zealand finished fourth after the first half, but improved so much that it managed to keep American superstar Michaela Schiffrin from winning at Lenzerheide.
Chevrin was 28 percent short of her 70th World Cup victory. Slovenian Meta Hruvat came in third. For Robinson, this was her third World Cup victory in a giant slalom. Italian Marta Pacino was already sure of victory in the final classification. I was ranked seventh this time. Slovak Petra Vlova, who already secured the World Cup victory on Saturday, is 11th.
Felhova won the ranking at the expense of Swiss Lara Gott Bahrami, who was ready after the third gate on Sunday. A spokesman for the Swiss contingent said it “did not have enough energy”. He denied persistent rumors that Gut-Behrami had come down early in protest against the descent and Lenzerheide’s descent and super-G being delayed.
Athletics: Hendrikse to miss Olympic limit for marathon debut
1.16 m: Tom Hendrikse made his debut at the Dresden Marathon at a distance of 42.195 kilometers. The 22-year-old Asinar finished third with a time of 2.13.03. It did not meet the Olympic Games maximum of 2.11.30.
Hendrix traveled to Dresden to attack this limit. It has relied on its shape and the latest generation of running shoes with carbon pad and foam layer in the sole, with which it can gain a proven marathon advantage. The Dutchman was good on schedule for a long time, but ran into trouble in the last kilometers and lost a lot of time.
Ronald Schroer also made a final attempt for the Olympic Marathon in Dresden. It exited north of Hollander after about 30 kilometers. Four athletes have already run the maximum Olympic marathon, Abdi Nagyi (2.06.17), Bart van Nunen (2.10.16), Bjorn Kurriman (2.11.07) and Frank Fotselaar: 2.11.30. Korman and Futcellar want to improve on April 11th in Hamburg.
The Netherlands is allowed to send only three athletes to the Games in Japan, where the marathon will be completed in Sapporo.
General: Special British Olympians’ helpline for reporting abuse in Tokyo
12.28 PM: The British Olympic Committee has set up a special independent helpline for the upcoming Olympic Games in Tokyo where Olympic athletes can report physical or psychological abuse. The measure was taken after a group of 17 former British gymnasts filed a lawsuit against the British Gymnastics Federation last month for years of physical and psychological abuse at the hands of coaches.
“One of the things we take care of when we get to Tokyo is that every athlete knows who to call if he has a problem in that atmosphere,” said Andy Anson, director of the British Olympic Committee. “There has to be an independent hotline that an athlete can contact without fear of blame or anything else. This is very important, because athletes have to feel that we are on their side.”
In the Netherlands, an independent investigation is underway into past misconduct by gymnastic coaches. The KNGU Gymnastics Association reported this week that the number of reports of unacceptable behavior in the gymnastics world has risen to 234.
Tennis: Zverev defeats Tsitsipas in Mexico to claim the 14th title
08.57 am: Alexander Zverev won the Mexican Open. The world number 7 holder was defeated in the ATP Championship Final in World No. 5 Acapulco, Greece, by Stephanos Tsitsipas in two groups: 6-4 and 7-6 (3). The 23-year-old Zverev achieved his 14th championship victory of his career.
The German recovered from a broken back in the first set and clinched the set point at 5-6 in the back in the second set. Zverev was also in the final of the tournament in Acapulco two years ago, but then bent over to Australian Nick Kyrios. “I always said I wanted to win this tournament once,” Zverev said. “I have a strong relationship with Mexico and this tournament. My goal was to win here and I’m very happy about that.”
The fact that he dealt with Tsitsipas in the final gave Zverev even more satisfaction. In the previous five encounters between the two, the Greek had always been the strongest. The 22-year-old Tsipas is stuck with five titles in Thirteen Final.
