Tony Kanaan during practice for the 2015 Indianapolis 500. (Brian Spurlock, USA TODAY Sports)INDIANAPOLIS — Tony Kanaan wasn’t expecting the response he received to his explanation of racing in the aftermath of James Hinchcliffe’s crash.“I didn’t think it was a big deal,” Kanaan told USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. “I just told the truth. I’ve been around quite a long time. I lost my racing idol (Ayrton Senna) and two of my best friends (Greg Moore and Dan Wheldon) to this sport. We retired another one (Dario Franchitti) because of it. I just told the truth.”FRANCHITTI: 2013 crash cost him more than his racing careerAfter Hinchcliffe crashed and was hospitalized Monday while practicing for the 99th Indianapolis 500, Kanaan was the subject of the post-practice press conference. He delivered a short, impromptu manifesto about racers’ motivation and reasoning that struck a chord with racers and race fans:“Every time we hop in that race car, we don’t know if we’re going to come out of it,” he said. “That’s what we have to live with. That’s what makes us different than other people. That’s why not everybody can do this. It’s tough. It’s not easy to see a friend of yours get hurt or to lose a friend, but this is the sport we chose. I’m not trying to be rude, but if people feel uncomfortable about that, then I think they should not be in a race car.”Kanan, the 2013 Indy 500 winner, said he hasn’t seen much of the online response, but has heard from fellow drivers who responded positively. But his real intention was to clear up the inaccuracies and confusion in light of four crashes that drew attention during practice.“It’s really easy for people to point fingers at things when they have no clue what they’re talking about,” Kanaan said Wednesday. “My point was they were four different crashes and four different reasons. We’re looking into those. … Like everything, it takes research. It’s going to take a little time. But what are we going to do in the meantime? We’re just going to stop?”WATCH: Simona de Silvestro on crashing a car at 230 mphInstead, Kanaan focused on the positives of Hinchcliffe’s crash. Two things weren’t supposed to happen — a rocker arm failing and a piece of the suspension piercing the car’s tub — but two other positive things did: Hinchcliffe did not sustain a head injury, and the safety crew made fast, accurate decisions that helped stop the flow of blood from the injury and get Hinchcliffe into surgery as quickly as possible.“A guy hit the wall at 215 mph is out of ICU right now and talking,” Kanaan said. “He’s going to recover 100 percent, not 90 percent. What does that tell you? Is it safe enough? For sure. There is a risk to what we do, but he’s going to be back at 100 percent.”INDY 500 SUB: Ryan Brisco will replace Hinchcliffe in Sunday’s raceOn Monday night, Kanaan tweeted his best to Hinchcliffe:Earlier in the day, he tried to explain racing to those who question why people do it.“You know when things appear to be obvious, but until you’ve heard someone say it, you don’t get it?” Kanaan said. “That’s what I tried to do.”(Greg Hester, USA TODAY Sports)

The Norway U21 player’s chances of forcing his way into Graham Potter’s plans at The Amex have only become difficult, with Ben White’s return from his loan spell at Leeds United, and the arrival of Joël Veltman from Ajax.Earlier this month, the 20-year-old expressed his desire to continue in Germany for the upcoming season.The centre-back has a year left on his contract with the Seagulls, and speaking to TV2 in Norway, the 20-year-old has made it clear he will not settle for a place on the bench.“I do not intend to be a fourth choice [centre-back] now and not allowed to play. For me, the most importuning thing now is playing time,” he said.Embed from Getty ImagesØstigård hasn’t provided any information on his long-term future with Brighton, but did admit his chances of representing the Premier League side next season look slim.“Yes, it will probably be a sale or a new loan. That I stay at Brighton is certainly quite unlikely now, when you look at the number of players,” he explained.The defender also stressed his employer will prefer to send him out on loan to the Championship, meaning a return to Germany could be ruled out.“Brighton probably want to loan me out to a club in the Championship. So, it’s a question of which clubs are coming on to the field [for me],” the Norwegian stressed.‘It would have been nice [to return to St. Pauli], but Brighton would most like to loan me out to the Championship.“Of course, I loved [my time in] Germany, but I never go back to another club other than St. Pauli in the Bundesliga 2. So, in that case it must be to the Bundesliga.”by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題UndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystDigitization in Banks Is No Longer About Efficiency, but Business Resilience.

The Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) is asking the top players to accept less money for the 2020 edition. An EspnCricinfo report yesterday said, “The competition will be played, subject to (TT) Government approval, behind closed doors with the top-paid players expected to accept a salary cut of up to 30 per cent when compared to 2019 levels. There will be no salary cut for players below the US$20,000 bracket.”Players who normally earn US$160,000, $130,000, $110,000, $90,000, $70,000, $60,000, $40,000 and $30,000 would be asked to accept a 30 per cent cut, and players who would have made US$20,000 will accept a ten per cent cut. Players in the $15,000 bracket or less will not receive salary cuts.CPL organisers are hoping to stage the competition in TT between August 18 and September 10.
Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti felt striker Nicolas Anelka was the key to his side’s 4-1 win over MSK Zilina in their Champions League group game.Anelka set up Michael Essien for the opener before scoring twice himself.“The key was Anelka, he had a fantastic game. He created space, had chances and was the key,” said Ancelotti.“He can play the position in front, sometimes we use him more wide, sometimes in the middle but he shows the same skills if he plays wide.”Daniel Sturridge scored Chelsea’s fourth goal, while goalkeeper Petr Cech’s error helped Zilina grab a consolation goal through Tomas Oravec.“I think that Petr could do better with the goal we conceded but we faced a lot of crosses,” added the Blues boss. “I am happy Sturridge scored, but he has to improve his positioning, I would like him to play more infield rather than out wide.“He showed fantastic movement to score, I am happy with his performance.”Chelsea came under pressure late on when the game was won, but Ancelotti was unconcerned after his side took their goal tally to 21 from five games.“Every game in the Champions League is hard to play,” said the Italian. “We started very well in the first half, we played fantastic football but the second half was different.“Zilina put more pressure on our defence. The back four did a good match. When you are 3-0 up it’s normal to have more difficulty. “I hope to watch my team play a fantastic game for 90 minutes. Obviously, I was a player so I know sometimes there are difficult times, the opponent can come back in the game.“If I have to judge the performance I am very happy because it’s not easy to win 4-1 away in the Champions League.”Zilina coach Pavel Hapel believes the match would have been closer had his side shown a more ruthless edge in front of goal.“I am not disappointed with the game,” said Hapel. “We played well and attacked Chelsea. We managed to score so it was OK.“We kept up with Chelsea as much as we could but I am disappointed with the productivity. The score was a surprise. “We didn’t show the same productivity in front of goal as Chelsea did.”Source: BBC
