A mere 43 years after Giuseppe Savoldi became the first £1million footballer — pre-dating Trevor Francis by moving from Bologna to Napoli for the equivalent of £1.2m — Armando, of Ingelmunster in Belgium, has become the world’s first £1m pigeon. This gathering of the world’s best 400-meter hurdlers Tuesday produced a gold medal for Warholm, a world record, a masterpiece and a slice of history. The World Cup winner scored 10 goals as Napoli lifted the Serie A title 31 years ago – their first Italian top-flight triumph. Nike will commemorate the 20 years of their tie with Barcelona with a special ‘retro’ edition. Springsteen wasn’t a year old when Kraut made her Olympic debut in 1992 in Barcelona. As reporters waited to speak with Jessica Springsteen on Tuesday night, they were warned not to ask about her family. Reporters seeking Springsteen’s thoughts on whether her sport should be more inclusive would have to wait.
Those two individuals have forgotten more about horsemanship than the majority at the BHA will ever know. It would certainly help if the daughter of musicians Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa could talk about more than her horse. Jessica Springsteen approached the reporters lining a partition inside an interview area and glanced at the voice recorders piled onto three brown plastic trays in front of her. Reporters who promised to ask about her performance in the individual jumping qualifier at Equestrian Park were identified, and theirs were the only questions taken before a media manager from U.S. They clinched the trophy with Ronaldo providing arguably his best performance for the Nerazzurri. While Messi did not confirm he would definitely join the Parisians, he said his plans were to carry on playing as long as possible, adding he still harbours ambitions to win another Champions League trophy. Barca qualified for the final with the win, taking on Valencia to retain the trophy.
National team coach Antonio Diaz Miguel decided to leave Villacampa off his final team for the Olympics, but after that, Villacampa became a mainstay for Spain and featured in both the Seoul 1988 and Barcelona 1992 Olympic squads. Penya took the win this time also by a narrow 59-57 margin behind 16 points by Villacampa in 35 minutes. By comparison, in the 400 flat, it took 48 years for the record to come down by a comparable amount — .85 seconds between 1968 (Butch Reynolds) and 2016 (Wayde van Niekerk). That nearly equaled the amount of time Springsteen lasted in her Olympic debut. “He’s a stallion, but he’s a really kind horse,” Springsteen said.

If you go after them, it’s suicidal,” said Kyron McMaster, the fourth-place finisher whose time of 47.08 would’ve won the last six Olympics. —The third-place finisher, Alison dos Santos of Brazil, finished in 46.72, which would’ve been a world record five weeks earlier. Italy has long been seen as one of the fashion capitals of the world and the country’s top soccer league, Serie A, has produced some of the most aesthetically pleasing kits ever seen in the game. Van Niekerk’s world record in the 400 is 43.03. That’s only 2.91 faster than what Warholm did with 10 hurdles to scale. TOKYO (AP) — When brash Norwegian hurdler Karsten Warholm led the field to the starting line on a steamy afternoon at Olympic Stadium, he and his seven opponents had every reason to expect they’d be part of something special. “I decided I didn’t like to lose,” Warholm said. Interestingly, it has been suggested that one of the change kits could be orange, inspired by the kit worn by the 1992 European Cup-winning team.
Nike will not use the full-color Barcelona crest but go with a black and gold one. Defender Gerard Pique, who is a Barcelona native, was at in Independence Day march with his son sporting the jersey. Clearly, the angry intervention of Sir Anthony McCoy after three jockeys were banned on day one carries weight, as would Peter Scudamore’s claim that the BHA had made scapegoats of amateur riders. The suspended jockeys were found to have ridden their mounts beyond the bounds of exhaustion, with one making generous use of the whip as he did. Consequently, as well as some of most stunning kits, Italian sides have also produced some real stinkers down the years.
