Candidate Cities 2024 deliver vision, concept and strategy plans to IOC

Candidate Cities 2024 deliver vision, concept and strategy plans to IOC

(Championspk )The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has received the four Candidature Files from Los Angeles (USA), Rome (Italy), Budapest (Hungary) and Paris (France)* for hosting the Olympic Games 2024. Today was the deadline for part one of the Candidature File: Vision, Games Concept and Strategy to host the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad 2024.

The Candidature Process 2024 is the first to be launched following the adoption of Olympic Agenda 2020, the IOC’s strategic roadmap for the future of the Olympic Movement. The new Candidature Process encourages the Cities to present Olympic projects that best match their sports, economic, social and environmental long-term planning needs. It calls for the use of existing facilities where possible, and provides flexibility for the venue concept to meet local sustainability and legacy needs and ambitions.

“Los Angeles, Rome, Budapest and Paris are all submitting projects fully in line with Olympic Agenda 2020. It is impressive to see how they have incorporated the Olympic project into the long-term development plans of their city, region and country. Coming from different starting points, for all four there is a clear focus on sustainable development, legacy and in particular how the facilities are going to be used after the Olympic Games. We are delighted to have four extremely strong candidatures and look forward to a fascinating competition”, IOC President Thomas Bach said.

Jacqueline Barrett, Associate Director Olympic Games/Olympic Candidatures, commented: “Following Olympic Agenda 2020, the Candidate Cities are making use of an extremely high percentage of existing and temporary venues, possibly the most ever. The plans received indicate very thoughtful consideration of what the Cities and their people need for the future. The IOC has significantly simplified the Candidature Process, symbolised by the fact that the submissions arrived for the very first time on a USB key only, instead of thousands of pages of paper documents.”

The new Candidature Process features a progressive submission of information to allow planning to develop organically and at an appropriate pace. The three stages each address different elements of the Cities’ proposals:

Young Blues fan makes heartwarming gesture, gifts Tarasenko stick to another youngster

Young Blues fan makes heartwarming gesture, gifts Tarasenko stick to another youngster

(Champiospk )Every young fan at a hockey game thinks of the moment a puck comes sailing into the crowd and they make a great grab to take home a souvenir. That’s a moment that kid will never forget. So imagine instead of a puck, it’s a stick, and instead of catching the stick, he or she is handed it by one of the best players on the home team. That’s exactly what happened in St. Louis this past weekend, as post-game a young fan leaned over the railing and held his hands out only for Vladimir Tarasenko, arguably the best Blues player, to hand off his stick as a souvenir.

The young fan who snatched it up and was ready to leave, but instead of taking off with his newfound treasure, the young man, who was wearing a Jori Lehtera jersey, spotted a youngster in a Tarasenko jersey and did the selfless thing: he walked back down the stairs, up to the kid and passed off Tarasenko’s stick

The story doesn’t end there, though. The Blues caught wind of the young fan’s gesture and took to their Twitter account to seek him out. “Anyone know the young fan in the (Lehtera) jersey?” the Blues asked via Twitter. “We’d like to reward him for his nice gesture.” In less than a day, the Blues had located the fan and contacted his family. What exactly the team did for the youngster isn’t known, but we’re sure St. Louis took care of him. It’s nice to see the Blues rewarding him, too, because after giving away a prize like that from Tarasenko in order to make another young fan’s wish come true, he deserves everything that comes his way.

Taylor guides England to convincing win

Taylor guides England to convincing win

UK(Championspk )James Taylor’s well-crafted century paved the way for England to thrash South Africa A by 163 runs at the Diamond Oval in their warm up for the one-day international series.

A beautifully paced run-a-ball 116 from the Nottinghamshire batsman on a slow surface laid the foundations before Jonny Bairstow and the lower order upped the ante to post 368 for seven.

England scored 127 from the last 10 overs, with Bairstow clearing the rope six times in his blistering 58, before Chris Jordan and David Willey added further late impetus.

Reece Topley and David Willey then struck early and South Africa A eventually folded for 205 in only 30.5 overs.

Hampshire left-armer Topley, leg-spinner Adil Rashid and Sussex seamer Jordan all took three wickets in a convincing display from Eoin Morgan’s side, despite some notable resistance from Theunis de Bruyn, who made an unbeaten 73.

Jordan also took three slip catches in an excellent all-round display.

Morgan won the toss in clear conditions and opening pair Jason Roy and Alex Hales added 49 before falling in quick succession.

Roy had just hoisted Marchant de Lange over long-off for six, when at the other end he was lbw to a full delivery from David Wiese’s second over for 22.

Hales made 23 but then looped de Lange to mid-on, before Taylor and Morgan shared an 80-run stand.

Morgan fell to a superb caught-and-bowled grab by Wiese for 41, and Moeen Ali hit Aaron Phangiso over the leg-side for a couple of sixes before he was run out backing up.

Taylor fell to mid-off in the penultimate over after reaching his 15th List A century, but by then the damage had been done.

Topley swiftly removed Dean Elgar with one that swung slightly to induce an edge to Jordan at slip.

Reeza Hendricks was bowled through the gate by Willey, Qaasim Adams nicked Topley to slip and Rashid turned one that snared Khaya Zondo’s edge as three wickets fell for seven runs.

Jordan ended a fifth-wicket stand of 73 when Dane Vilas chopped one on, and Rashid – returning from a successful stint in the Big Bash – nabbed two late wickets.

Rumor Roundup: Kessel, Eriksson potential deadline scoring options, Ducks still looking for help

Rumor Roundup: Kessel, Eriksson potential deadline scoring options, Ducks still looking for help

Canda( By Lyle Richardson )The Tampa Bay Lightning’s suspension of unhappy left wing Jonathan Drouin has observers wondering about the effect this will have upon his trade value. Prior to suspending the 20-year-old over his refusal to play in the AHL until his trade request is honored, between 12 to 15 clubs reportedly had varying degrees of interest in the youngster. Drouin’s agent Allan Walsh claims the Lightning informed them a trade was close to completion, prompting their request that he no longer participate in AHL games to avoid injury. According to The Tampa Tribune’s Erik Erlendsson, that drew an icy denial from GM Steve Yzerman. “We never said that there was a pending deal or a deal close,” said Yzerman. The Lightning GM still claims trading Drouin is a priority, but it doesn’t put additional pressure upon him to get a deal done. Yzerman didn’t rule out a reconciliation, but that appears remote right now. Staging a holdout is the only card the Drouin camp has to play. He’s in the midst of an entry-level contract through 2016-17. However, his actions could hurt his trade value, raising questions about his character. PENGUINS SHOULD CONSIDER KESSEL MOVE Right wing Phil Kessel isn’t having the positive offensive impact the Pittsburgh Penguins envisioned when they acquired him last summer from the Toronto Maple Leafs. A five-time 30-goal scorer, the 28-year-old is on pace this season for around 25 goals and 50 points. SI.com’s Allan Muir notes Penguins GM Jim Rutherford’s recent dealing of left wing David Perron to the Anaheim Ducks for Carl Hagelin was essentially his admission that acquiring Perron a year ago was a mistake. Muir suggests Rutherford should do the same with Kessel, pointing to clubs like the Montreal Canadiens and Minnesota Wild are in need of scoring punch. Easier said than done. Kessel’s contract is a significant stumbling block. Even with the Leafs picking up $1.2 million of his $8-million annual cap hit, the Penguins are still carrying $6.8 million. That’s not easy to move during the season. Factor in Kessel’s offensive difficulties this season and his reputation (deserved or not) as a lazy, one-dimensional player, and trading him becomes more difficult. For better or worse, Kessel and the Penguins appear stuck with each other for the remainder of this season. ERIKSSON PRICING HIMSELF OUT OF BOSTON? In the coming weeks, Boston Bruins right wing Loui Eriksson could garner considerable attention in the rumor mill. TSN’s Darren Dreger reports the Bruins opened preliminary contract talks with the 30-year-old, who’s eligible for unrestricted free agency in July. Completing a six-year, $25.5-million contract, Eriksson is enjoying his best season in years. He’s within range of 30 goals and 70 points, becoming an invaluable two-way player for the Bruins in their quest to nail down a playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. Eriksson’s asking price, however, could determine if he has a long-term future in Boston. Dreger speculates his camp could seek a five-to-six year deal around $6 million annually. CSNNE.com’s Joe Haggerty believes that could be too expensive for the Bruins, suggesting they could peddle him for a defenseman like St. Louis’ Kevin Shattenkirk. Dreger thinks the Nashville Predators could be a destination. DUCKS STILL LOOKING TO ADD Anaheim Ducks GM Bob Murray continues to tinker with his roster. Earlier this month, he swapped Hagelin to the Penguins for Perron and minor-league defenseman Adam Clendening. On Thursday, Murray shipped struggling young winger Jiri Sekac to the Chicago Blackhawks for rugged forward Ryan Garbutt. Neither of those moves, however, suitably address the Ducks’ anemic offense. Hagelin and Perron had basically the same stats before their trade. Garbutt provides grit but isn’t much of a scorer. Before the Sekac-for-Garbutt swap, Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman noted the Ducks were in the market for young forwards and could draw upon their blueline depth as trade bait. With Simon Despres and Cam Fowler expected to return to the lineup soon, and young Shea Theodore proving he belongs in the NHL, the Ducks are overloaded with young defensemen. For weeks, there’s been considerable speculation suggesting Murray could move a young d-man or two for a proven top-six scorer. If the Ducks fail to gain ground in the Western Conference playoff chase, he could pull the trigger for either a rental player or a longer-term acquisition before the trade deadline.
