(BBC) – UEFA will provide an update on plans to finish the 2019-20 season to all its 55 national associations at a video conference on Tuesday.European football’s governing body hopes to end the campaign in August, although with every league bar Belarus still suspended there are doubts over whether that deadline can be met.Uefa has launched two working groups, one specifically assessing the fixture calendar. It is hoped specific proposals will be presented by mid-May at the latest.However, the continuing uncertainty over the spread of coronavirus is creating major issues, with some leagues – including Germany and Denmark – talking optimistically about a resumption next month, while others – England among them – believe it will be June at the earliest before they can play games, and some Premier League clubs feel it will be longer than that.Uefa is still hoping to complete its own tournaments in the normal two-legged format. However, there is an understanding that it may not be possible, so one-off games, and a week-long mini-tournament from the quarter-finals onwards for both the Champions League and Europa League, have also been discussed.Tuesday’s meeting will be followed on Thursday by a meeting of the Uefa executive committee.That is expected to provide an update on the Womens’ European Championship and the Nations League, both of which have been moved to allow Euro 2020 to take place a year later than scheduled, plus plans to relax financial regulations this season.In addition, it is anticipated, Uefa will confirm that it will listen to requests to end domestic leagues early.It has previously warned against this, saying countries risk their places in next season’s European competitions.
A New Zealand jiu-jitsu athlete claimed yesterday that he was “kidnapped” in Rio de Janeiro.Jason Lee, 27, tweeted: “What did you guys get up to yesterday? I got kidnapped. Go Olympics! #Rio2016.”The athlete said he was taken by men in police uniform and forced to withdraw money from two cash machines (ATMs).Lee has been living in Brazil for 10 months, but is not participating in next month’s Rio Games – which begin on August 5- because jiu-jitsu is not an Olympic sport.Meanwhile, the Australian Olympic team is refusing to move their athletes into the Rio Olympic Games Village because of concerns about the state of the accommodation.Also yesterday, seven Russian swimmers were banned from competing at the Rio Olympic Games by swimming’s governing body FINA. Those deemed ineligible for Rio include Yulia Efimova, a 200m bronze medallist in London, who had a provisional ban lifted by FINA last week.It said the McLaren Report has showed anti-doping rules were “not properly applied” by Russian authorities.FINA will also now re-test all the samples of Russian athletes collected at last year’s World Championships.As well as Efimova, Mikhail Dovgalyuk, Natalia Lovtcova and Anastasia Krapivina were withdrawn by the Russian Olympic Committee.Nikita Lobintsev, Vladimir Morozov and 17-year-old Daria Ustinova appeared in the World Anti-Doping Agency-commissioned investigation.That report by Dr Richard McLaren claims Russia operated a state-sponsored doping programme for four years across the “vast majority” of summer and winter Olympic sports.Following the findings, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) said it would leave it up to individual sports’ governing bodies to decide if competitors are clean and should be allowed to take part.FINA said it “acknowledges and supports” the IOC’s position.FINA will, therefore, “as a decision made as an emergency in the context of Rio 2016” subject the eligibility of Russian athletes to specific additional criteria, which are:No athlete corresponding to the samples mentioned in the McLaren report will be eligibleA board will review whether Russian athletes were subject to reliable anti-doping scrutinyNo athlete who has already sanctioned will be declared eligible to compete at RioFINA said the “exact implication for the Russian Swimming Federation is still to be clarified” and an “ad hoc commission will have to investigate”.The commission will consider any further information from McLaren’s ongoing investigation.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
England had to settle for fourth place in both the men’s and women’s European team championships after their double bid for bronze medals ended in disappointment. The men lost 4-3 to Sweden with team manager Terry Casey commenting: “We were again left to reflect on getting nothing out of the day when we had played our hearts out.” Meanwhile, the women were beaten 5-2 by Spain and team captain Elaine Ratcliffe said: “The girls played good golf this week and rallied hard but in the end came across two teams who played fantastic golf against us at the right times.” Overall, the men’s championship was won by Scotland, while France took the ladies’ title. In the men’s bronze medal match all England’s points were provided by Jimmy Mullen and Ashley Chesters (Image © Leaderboard Photography). They won their foursomes by one hole and Mullen went on to win his singles 4/2, while Chesters took his point by the margin of 2/1. But the other England players were fighting hard. Team captain Terry Casey paid tribute to his battling side, remarking: “We put up a great performance and I’m very proud of the lads. “After halving the foursomes the Swedes came on strongly in the singles, but we once again played excellent golf and gave ourselves a great chance. “Ben Taylor played very well against (world number three) Marcus Kinhult and was in a strong position and still ahead with two holes to go. However, despite solid play from Ben and twice being agonisingly close to birdies himself on both these holes, he had to watch as Kinhult converted both times, from off the green on the last.” He added: “We leave in fourth place with our heads held high and England Golf winning many friends from an outstanding effort. The guys were just outstanding in every respect.” In the women’s bronze medal match, England’s points were provided by Hayley Davis and Charlotte Thomas, who had a comfortable 5/4 foursomes win; and by Bronte Law who was on similar form, winning her singles 5/3. Elaine Ratcliffe said: “The standard of play in the foursomes was stunning with both pairings being under par. Hayley and Charlotte won convincingly, not giving their opponents any opportunity to be in the game. The other foursome played amazing golf but were defeated by a birdie on the 19th hole. We were delighted with the standard of golf. “In the afternoon the Spanish girls played some amazing golf and quickly took good leads in four of the five matches. But the performance of the afternoon was from Bronte who birdied five out of the last seven holes to win 5/3, with some of the best golf of the week played.” She also had praise for 17-year-old Alice Hewson who was playing her first women’s European championship and who was second, individually, in qualifying. Elsewhere, England boys beat Scotland 3-2 to finish fifth in the top flight of their championship. This was the highest position they could achieve after losing their first round match. Their points were accumulated in the singles with Bradley Moore winning 4/3 and Matty Lamb and Harry Hall both winning 1 up. England’s girls lost 4½-½ to Sweden, finishing second in Flight B and 10th overall in their championship. The teams: Men, playing at Halmstad Golf Club, Sweden: Ashley Chesters (Hawkstone Park), Nick Marsh (Huddersfield), Jimmy Mullen (Royal North Devon), Ben Taylor (Walton Heath), Ashton Turner (Kenwick Park) and Sean Towndrow (Southport & Ainsdale).
