Motorsports News Lewis Hamilton clinches Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to secure glorious end to record-breaking 2018

No Comments

first_imgAbu Dhabi: Lewis Hamilton ended 2018 with a typically assured victory in the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix amid topless celebrations and farewells on an emotional evening at the Yas Marina Circuit. The 33-year-old Briton, who reeled off the 11th win of 2018 that brought him his fifth drivers’ world championship ahead of four-time champ Sebastian Vettel, showed off his tattooed torso on the podium amid goodbyes for former foe Fernando Alonso, who retired from F1 after 17 years and 311 GPs. “I really wanted to end the season strong,” said Hamilton, who won the F1 championship last month in Mexico. “The team did an exceptional job all year long, and I really wanted, race on, race off, to deliver for them and wanted to end the way that I plan to start next year. That was kind of the new psyche.”Read More |Happy Birthday Sania Mirza: Wishes pour in for India’s tennis starHamilton’s latest win came after Nico Hulkenberg survived a spectacular accident on the opening lap — escaping unhurst as flames licked around him while he hung on the barriers “like a cow” in his upside-down Renault.Read More | Viswanathan Anand wins dramatic Tata Steel Chess Blitz titleHulkenberg smiled as he recalled the experience of hanging in his car while “the barbecue was lit” behind him.    The German driver’s accident came after tangling with Romain Grosjean’s Haas led to a Safety Car intervention, but neither that, nor the later deployment of a Virtual Safety Car, could stop Hamilton from triumphing.    Mercedes team manager Tom Wolff said that for Hamilton and the team it was important to maintain impetus as they head towards defending their record-equalling sequence of five consecutive drivers’ and teams’ double title wins next year.    “It was a great fight this season with Ferrari and then Red Bull came into the mix and there were six cars able to win — that’s why the television ratings increased.”     New American owners Liberty Media appreciated that and the special moment after Sunday’s race when multiple champions Hamilton (five titles), Vettel (four) and Alonso (two) performed semi-synchronised donut spins of their cars during a post-race slow-down lap dedicated to the Spanish driver.    Hamilton also had warm words for Vettel.    “It’s been a real honour and a privilege racing against Sebastian,” said Hamilton. “I’ve known him since our Formula Three days and he’s an honest driver who has always raced his heart out. I know he’s going to come back strong next year.” For all the Latest Sports News News, Motorsports News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

first_imgThe team says all other staff members or players involved in phase 2 of the NHL’s testing protocol have tested negative as teams prepare to start voluntary small-group workouts on Monday.NHL mandatory training camps can open July 10, pending an agreement to returning to play later this summer.VIRUS OUTBREAK-SPORTSTV money gives NFL leg up if fans can’t fill team’s coffersUNDATED (AP) — Timing favors the NFL over other major pro sports leagues in trying to figure out how to keep the coronavirus pandemic from wrecking the 2020 season. America’s most popular sport has another big advantage if the games are played: TV money. — At a Spanish league match in which spectators were banned, a man ran on to the pitch and briefly delayed Mallorca (mah-YOHR’-kah) vs. Barcelona. Televised images showed the man walk on to the field and take a photo of himself with his mobile phone a few meters in front of Barcelona defender Jordi Alba. It is unclear if the young man, who was wearing an Argentina soccer shirt approached other players before he was escorted off by security. Play quickly resumed.USOPC-PROTEST PROBLEMSUS Olympic leaders eye change on protests amid wary athletesDENVER (AP) — U.S. Olympic leaders are open to changing a longstanding rule restricting protests at the Olympics. But the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee is also facing backlash from some of its own athletes who feel they’ve been kept out of the loop.The USOPC is forming an athletes’ group to look into racial issues that have been exposed across the country in the aftermath of George Floyd’s killing in Minneapolis. But the committee made the move before consulting with the group that is supposed to represent athletes on the U.S. team. That upset some athletes. While NFL owners could lose billions collectively with limited capacities in stadiums or no fans at all, the league is well positioned financially because of lucrative media contracts approaching $10 billion in a full 2020 season.Fitch Ratings recently affirmed its “A-plus” credit mark for the NFL and its properties in part because of the league’s media deals. Fitch says the NFL estimates each team’s media revenue at $250 million per season. The number gets bigger later in the contract, and each deal is set to expire in the next two years.So, it’s safe to say more than half of the league’s $15 billion in annual revenue comes from the TV deals shared equally among all 32 teams — unlike Major League Baseball, the NBA and NHL.MLB’s attempts to get the baseball season started are being held up in part by a disagreement over how to compensate players in the likelihood that owners will have no fan-related revenue.In other developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic: Burton, Gragson and Austin Cindric were three-wide going into that last lap, and it was Burton who wound up winning what turned into a wild finish.Cindric got second and Gragson finished third, two spots ahead of Earnhardt — part of his car’s JR Motorsports ownership.NFL-BROWN-MAYFIELDMayfield “absolutely” will kneel during national anthemCLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield plans to kneel during the national anthem this upcoming season to support protests of social injustice, police brutality and racism. In answering a post from a fan on his Instagram account Saturday that pleaded with him not to kneel, Mayfield responded: “Pull your head out. I absolutely am.″ Mayfield has been outspoken recently about the need for more understanding and justice in the nation following the killing of George Floyd, a black man, while in police custody in Minneapolis. On Friday, Houston Texans coach Bill O’Brien said he would kneel with his players if they chose to do so during the anthem.Earlier this week, while not going as far as O’Brien, new Browns coach Kevin Stefanski made it clear he would back his players in any peaceful demonstrations.NHL-VIRUS OUTBREAKCayotes staff member tests positivePHOENIX, Ariz.

Photo inspires runner Grinaker

No Comments

first_imgWhen Hanna Grinaker wakes up, the first thing she sees is her team.”Above my bed, I have a blown up picture of all of us,” Grinaker said, adding that it acts as a reminder of who she is and where she can go.”It tells me every morning, ‘This is why I’m here,'” Grinaker added. “I’m passionate about cross country, and I want to see how much I can get out of it.”So far the sophomore from Detroit Lakes, Minn., has done a great deal with her opportunity to run for UW. Last season she was an All-American and was named Big Ten Freshman of the Year. Her third-place finish in last year’s Big Ten Championship with a time of 20:39 was the fastest of all present freshmen and the highest finish by a freshman since 2004.This week marks the one-year anniversary of her first Big Ten Cross Country co-athlete of the week award.What accolades do not describe, however, is her passion for the sport and the art of running.”I love cross country because it’s reckless abandon,” Grinaker said.And despite her success last year, Grinaker wants more. She’s not yet where she would like to be.”I don’t think any of my stats are really impressive. I’m still working to be a better runner,” the modest Grinaker added.Grinaker is only a second away from running the mile in less than five minutes. Although her high school coach was never a runner, Grinaker claims his dedication to making her the best she could be played a major role in her success.Now she’s at UW, following the footsteps of her aunt Mary, who ran track for the Badgers and captured a UW Big Ten Championship.Inspired by head coach Jim Stintzi, Grinaker’s greatest challenge is to stay physically and mentally healthy throughout the entire season.”I think she is someone who is exceptionally disciplined and has a great work ethic,” Stintzi said. “She has a strong sense of her abilities, and she knows what she needs to do to improve.”Grinaker looks to Stintzi for his experienced advice. Stintzi was an All-American Badger and since his return to UW in 2004, he propelled Wisconsin into national rankings in both cross country and track.”His workouts give us confidence,” Grinaker said. “I listen to his advice, and I trust his system. There is always a little bit left in the tank, but the workouts leave us mentally tough.”Despite the fact that she’s only a sophomore, Grinaker has naturally embraced a leading role on the team.”She definitely is a leader in terms of her work ethic,” Stintzi said. “She’s not super vocal, but she’s encouraging of her teammates.”Grinaker sees this season as an opportunity to further progress.”I hope other people would look to me to be a leader. I feel like I am learning all the time,” she said. “I hope I can be a role model to the younger girls. Diligence and hard work really do pay off.”This past weekend the Badgers won their third straight Pioneer Invitational. Grinaker finished second, barely trailing teammate Cassie Hintz, a redshirt freshman from Stillwater, Maine. The Badgers secured the top eight spots and notched a perfect score of 15 in their win.Currently ranked No. 5 in the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association, the UW women’s cross country team will look to Grinaker for continued success and leadership this fall.last_img read more

gbet’s dos and don’ts for ICE 2019

So, how do you go about best managing your time and getting the most out of the annual industry pilgrimage to the ExCeL?As this year’s ICE moves into focus, we caught up with Conall McSorley, Business Development Director for gbet – a leading technology supplier in Europe and the US, with major brands like GVC and the New York Racing Association as existing customers.McSorley, whose company will be promoting its industry-leading solution for platform, sportsbook, exchange and Tote/ADW, outlined his key dos and don’ts for ‘breaking’ the ICE, including keeping an open mind and carrying out key research ahead of time.DosCome to ICE with an open mind. You may have a long standing relationship with a technology supplier, but technology is constantly evolving and adapting to challenges around regulation, product and function. It is a cliché, but a truism, that as an operator if you are not moving forward, you are falling behind. What does your business want to achieve in the next two years, is your current technology supplier the right partner to help you realise those objectives?Think like an end user before the event even starts. Ask yourself, what is your company’s USP to the end user? What is it that brings them to your site? Or perhaps, what is lacking in your offering that is causing them to leave and not return?Be aware of your current technology supplier’s limitations, and speak with alternative tech suppliers with those specific issues as your checklist. A migration to a different platform is only justified if it will make your business more competitive and profitable.Speak to colleagues internally within your organisation, especially in IT and Operations. Find out what projects and strategies they are failing to execute because of limitations of the technology supplier. Try to visit ICE with a tech savvy colleague, who may well have an entirely different approach to supplier evaluation.Do your research ahead of time on companies you want to see and try and schedule meetings. Remember, some companies like gbet for example will not have a stand, but will have private meeting rooms for presentations around the main exhibition floor.Don’ts Remember the open mind? It’s very easy at ICE with all the noise and the razzamatazz to get sucked into the “biggest must be best” mentality i.e. the largest stand must belong to the best business who must have the best technology. Businesses spend fortunes at ICE on branding and marketing (and hospitality), to convey to delegates that precise message. However, you will discover that some suppliers are forced to spend heavily on marketing because they are lacking in core function.Don’t spend too much time indulging in hospitality with existing suppliers. They already have your business, they want to keep it. The more time you are spending with them, the less time you are evaluating the alternatives and building that business case for migration your bosses will thank you for.Don’t play fast and loose with the timings of meetings; if you said 11, be there, otherwise you are having a knock on effect on your hosts schedule as well. If you cannot make a meeting, it really is only decent to communicate that to your host, and reschedule for a more convenient time.gbet will be hosting prospective clients for all three days of ICE.
