Russia yet to regain trust of sport before World Cup

By Rob Harris, Associated Press MOSCOW (AP) — Gary Lineker was furious, astonished at how FIFA's executives were handing out the rights to host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups. Leaving the roped off area for dignitaries in Zurich on Dec. 2, 2010, the former England striker provided details of the shocks emerging from a meeting of world football's leadership. Lineker was stunned that England had been knocked out in the first round of voting, backed by only two FIFA executives. Russia won the voting to stage the 2018 tournament, delivering a coup for leader Vladimir Putin, who jetted into Zurich to celebrate. The 2022 vote sent even greater shockwaves through football as the tiny but wealthy desert nation of Qatar secured the World Cup for the Middle East for the first time. Being part of an England bid team that was so resoundingly humiliated by a committee of voters now largely discredited by bribery, financial misconduct and corruption left a deep impression on Lineker. Far removed from the clean-cut image of a player who avoided controversy, Lineker has turned his ire on FIFA and its executives over the last seven years. "FIFA bidding process created a murky world where favors/bribes were just thrown around," Lineker tweeted to more than six million followers only five months ago after the release of an investigation report. "Stinks." Still, Lineker accepted an offer to serve as the face of the 2018 World Cup when he hosts the draw at the Kremlin on Friday. A stage will even be shared with Putin at the seat of power in Russia. Hypocritical? Lineker maintains that taking the draw job and working for a former bid rival is not a "political endorsement." More surprising, perhaps, is that Russia even wants to be so closely associated with Lineker. His trail of tweets adds credence to doubts about Russia's suitability as a host of the world's most popular sporting event. The shadow of the 2014 Winter Olympics and Paralympics in Sochi hangs over the FIFA showpiece as coaches and officials descend on Moscow to discover their World Cup opponents in June. The International Olympic Committee is still working its way through the mass of evidence unearthed about the state-sponsored doping program around the Sochi Games, banning another wave of cheating athletes this week and deciding whether to bar Russia from entering a team at the Pyeongchang Olympics in February. An architect of the elaborate Sochi espionage scheme, which involved intelligence operatives unlocking supposedly tamper-proof drug-sample units and switching bottles through a hole in the wall of the drug-testing lab, remains in office in Russia. Vitaly Mutko, sports minister during the Sochi Olympics, is no longer in that job because he was promoted by Putin to deputy prime minister. Although even the mild-mannered IOC denied Mutko access to the 2014 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, he remains head of the local organizing committee for the 2018 World Cup. FIFA has attempted to portray the doping as an Olympic problem. But football was infected by the scheme, with World Anti-Doping Agency investigators saying positive tests were apparently covered up and arrangements were in place to protect players from Russia's 2014 World Cup squad if they were to test positive in the country before the tournament. Russia's World Cup squad has not been directly accused of doping, but the documents do include records of alleged drug use among players from youth national teams. They remain under investigation by FIFA as the 2018 tournament looms. According to Mutko this week, Russian players couldn't have been on drugs because they performed badly in Brazil. "If we play like that while doped, then how would we do without?" Mutko said. "It's absolute stupidity." Flying in the face of mounting written evidence, Mutko persists in denying any government role in the doping of athletes. That lack of contrition has contributed to Russia's sporting credibility disappearing down the drain as quickly as the urine samples from doped-up athletes. Sochi tarnished Russia's hopes of being seen as a reliable sporting host. The World Cup offers a platform for the Russians to shed their pariah status in sports. ___ Rob Harris is at www.twitter.com/RobHarris and www.facebook.com/RobHarrisReports.....»»

Fans, musicians mourn untimely death of The Cranberries’ Dolores O’Riordan

The Cranberries frontwoman Dolores O'Riordan, the unmistakable force behind the ethereal hit "Linger" and the fiercely political "Zombie" passed away on Monday, Jan. 15 in London. The band catapulted to the 1990s alt-rock scene from the recesses of Limerick, Ireland, making pixie-haired O'Riordan's feisty yodeling and Celtic-influenced singing a familiar soundtrack to many Gen-Xers' youth. These mournful fans, along with the band's fellow musicians and other personalities, poured out their sentiments through posts in social media.

Jr. NBA goes digital as it enters new decade

Jr. NBA is back in business and for 2018, it's about to be bigger than ever. Kicking off a new decade of the youth basketball program, Jr. NBA Philippines has once again teamed up with Alaska to launch the 2018 edition Saturday at Don Bosco Technical Institute in Makati. The Jr. NBA Philippines 2018 will run through May and is expected to hit more than 250,000 participants all over the country. "This year is our 11th year and we wanna make it bigger and better," NBA Philippines Managing Director Carlo Singson told ABS-CBN Sports. "Last year we had about 30,000 players and coaches participating and obviously we want to grow that number but we also want to create new digital, mobile, and social content so that more people can benefit from Jr. NBA," he added. Speaking of the planned move to digital by Jr. NBA, Singson says that their website has been re-launched to accomodate free content. It should allow basketball enthusiasts, even those who cannot directly participate to Jr. NBA events, to access useful tips and drills. "A lot more content geared towards players, coaches, and just fans of the game," Singson said. "So if you're a young basketball coach that has a team and wants new ideas, that will be on our site they can just watch or stream it, potentially even download it. Basically, it's gonna be on 365 days a year. That's the vision for the website, a lot of content is gonna be up. That is one of our key initiatives, to build our presence on the digital side," he added. Following this weekend's tip off, several coaching clinics will run until March while regional selection camps will go until April. Finally, a national training camp will take place in May with the main event slated for May 20 at the SM Mall of Asia.

Young and sober: Drinking on the wane for Australian teens

Drinking among Australian teenagers has declined sharply in the past two decades, with parents less likely to supply kids with booze and youths increasingly conscious of their health, researchers said Friday. The study by Deakin University, which surveyed more than 41,000 teenagers between 1999 and 2015, found that the number of adolescents who had consumed alcohol has dropped from close to 70 percent to 45 percent. Australia, where the legal drinking age is 18, was among the highest youth consumers of alcohol in the world when the survey began, researchers said. But minors buying alcohol has declined from 12 percent nearly two decades ago to just one percent today, the stud...Keep on reading: Young and sober: Drinking on the wane for Australian teens.....»»
