BALL - "My father is crazy, but now I believe in him more and more" (Athletics)

Famous slogan Red Bull gives you a sign he looked his best on someone like Pedro Pichardo, the triple jump champion at the Tokyo Games and the winner of the 2021 Diamond League. The successes marked by a renowned energy drink brand with the creation of a personalized can with his autograph and two images of himself, one of them in full swing.

“I’m very happy. I didn’t expect anything to make a can. They already told me they wanted to do something, but I didn’t expect it,” she says in her presentation. “When I was told that the bank already official, I was very happy. It’s nice to know that you have my image, “continued the fifth gold medalist of Portugal at the Games.

Do you think this is also a recognition of the Portuguese people? “I think so. It will be nice to know that they will eat a can with my picture and show that they have it at home,” he replies. But was this a dream year? “If I said no, I would be ungrateful But to say yes to me would be incomplete. I wanted more. Speaking of titles, I couldn’t win anymore, I took home the title of the year and the Diamond League. When I say I want more, I mean brands and in this sense I feel a little empty. I wish I could jump more. Nevertheless, I am happy that I brought all the titles of the 2020/21 season to the country and home, “he emphasizes in his calm tone.

“The 18-meter mark is gratifying,” say those who have already reached it twice, both in 2015, and six others who have reached a height of more than 17.90 meters. “But only when I manage to break the record. [mundial ,18,29m, do britânico Jonathan Edwards] I will feel like a complete athlete. Personally, my estimates of 18.08 m and 18.06 m mean little. On the day they mean, it means that I have already accomplished what I have achieved. I’m not like that yet, ”he says.

“Yes, I am a very ambitious person. Very focused on my job and I try to work 100 percent to get to the titles and make the big leap. Obviously this is not easy. We can talk here, and I can lie. You can even say that I can jump 19 meters, but in fact 18 meters is difficult. It is not easy, but I believe that at least I will be able to overcome the barrier of 18.30 m. You just need to keep working in order to be in good shape, to be healthy, and the jump will happen. “

Zaidoo has already booked a return trip to Porto

Tunisia will now face Burkina Faso in the CAN quarter-finals, which eliminated Gabon today.

Tunisia eliminated one of the top favorites to win the African Cup of Nations (CAN), Nigeria, by winning 1-0 to advance to the quarter-finals where they will face Burkina Faso.

The goal that qualified Tunisia was scored early in the second half, in the 47th minute, by midfielder Youssef Mskani of Al Arabi, currently ranked sixth in the Qatar I League.

Tunisia’s qualification against Nigeria is surprising considering North Africa’s ‘eighth place’ finish as one of the best third-placed teams in a group they only had one win against a fragile selection from Mauritania and two defeats, against the Gambia and Mali, both 1-0.

On the other hand, Nigeria advanced to Group D with nine points added from three wins, one over title contender Carlos Queiroz coached Egypt and two more over Sudan and Guinea-Bissau.

Porto Zaidu FC played 90 minutes for the Nigerian team, whose premature return to Porto is certainly good news for Porto coach Sergio Conceição.

It’s also worth noting that Nigeria were reduced to 10 after the 66th minute when Everton’s English striker Alex Iwobi was sent off with a straight red card.

Tunisia will now face Burkina Faso in the CAN quarter-finals, who eliminated Gabon today in the final shoot-out after a 1-1 draw at the end of regulation and extra time.

Eriksen set to return to Premier League after panic

Eriksen set to return to Premier League after panic

Editorial

Danish international to strengthen Brentford, British press assures

After a big scare set by Christian Eriksen at Euro 2020, the 29-year-old midfielder is about to complete his return to the competition and soon to the Premier League.

The English newspaper The Sunday Mirror guarantees that Eriksen will strengthen 14th-placed Brentford in the next 72 hours, simply by skipping the club’s routine medicals.

Eriksen has spent the last few days training with the Ajax team in order to get back to perfect pace as soon as possible and do his part for the bees.

Eriksen has been a free player on the market since 17 December, when Inter announced the sacking of a Danish international who was banned from Serie A due to having a cardiac defibrillator implanted to control any anomalies.

The player went into cardiac arrest in a Euro 2020 group stage match between Denmark and Finland and has some doubts about whether he can return to professional football. Panic appears to be a thing of the past as Eriksen is about to move to the second English club of his career after a successful run at Tottenham Hotspur between 2013 and 2019.
