Olympic athlete dies at age 24 after talking about pressure from competitors

BUT Olympic cyclist Olivia Podmore has died suddenly at the age of 24, her brother confirmed.

The New Zealander was pronounced lifeless on Monday shortly after posting on Instagram about the pressure of competition.

“Sport is an amazing salvation for many people, it is a sacrifice, it is a struggle, but it is a great joy,” the athlete wrote.

“The feeling when you win is different from everything else, but the feeling when you fail, when you are not chosen, even when you fit, when you are traumatized, when you do not live up to society’s expectations, such as having a home, getting married, having children, everything. because [se está] trying to give sport to sport is also different from everything else, ”says the publication, which has since been eliminated.

Curiously, a cyclist who competed in the 2016 Rio Olympics died a day after the end of this year’s competition in Tokyo.

“Rest in peace, my dear sister and beloved daughter of Phil Podmora. You will remain in our hearts forever, ”wrote Brother Mitchell.

The causes of death will be clarified.

Feyenoord coach Arne Sloot explained that talks with Benfica about Fredrik Orsnes have stalled and that the midfielder is not close to leaving. The coach also assured that there was no need for the club to sell the midfielder. “Now the situation is calm. Orsnes is not close to leaving. The clubs are not negotiating.

As Record reported, the Eagles sporting director Rui Pedro Braz was in the Netherlands and made a €10 million offer. But now the coach prefers that Benfica not return to the attack.

PSG threaten to send seven ‘undesirable’ players to the fifth division



PSG threaten to send seven 'undesirable' players to the fifth division

Alexander Dionisio

Names don’t count for Christophe Galtier and they will have to find a new club before the market closes.

PSG still have a few names in their ranks who are not considered by manager Christophe Galtier and have therefore been instructed that they will have to look for a new club.

As the summer market draws to a close, L’Équipe reports this Friday that the French champions have threatened to place seven “undesirable” players in the club’s division that plays in the French fifth division.

Among these seven names are Ander Herrera, Layvin Kurzawa, Julian Draxler, Rafinha, Thilo Kehrer, Idrissa Guie and Mauro Icardi.

There are also two youngsters, Édouard Mishu and Eric Junior Dina-Ebimbe, who escaped threats from the club but were also informed that they were not part of the French coach’s plans.

Given the threat, Luis Campos, football adviser to the Parisian emblem, intends to expedite the departure of some of these players who have been training separately from the rest of the first team.

However, it is more likely that, even if some of these names do not find a new assignment before the end of the month, they will later be reintegrated into the PSG main squad.
