  1. New Formula 1 world champion Nico Rosberg announces retirement Formula 1 world champion Nico Rosberg has announced his retirement with immediate effect. The German beat Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton to the title in 2016, sealing the crown in a tense season finale in Abu Dhabi last weekend. Speaking ahead of Friday's FIA Prize Giving Gala in Vienna, Rosberg announced his retirement from Formula 1. "I want to take the opportunity to announce that I have decided to end my Formula 1 career in this moment here," said Rosberg. "It's hard to explain, it has been ever since I started when I was six years old, I had a very clear dream and that was to become Formula 1 world champion. "Now I've achieved that, I've put everything into it for 25 years of racing and with the help of everybody around me, with the help of fans and the help of my team and my family and friends I have managed to achieve that this year. "So it has been an incredible experience for me that I will remember forever. "At the same time, it has been very very tough also because the last two years losing to Lewis were extremely difficult moments for me, which fuelled my motivation in a way that I didn't even know was possible to fight back and to achieve my dream finally." http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/127368/rosberg-announces-shock-formula-1-retirement
  2. Formula 1 calendar 2017: German GP dropped & Brazil in doubt Germany has been dropped from next year's Formula 1 calendar and the Brazilian Grand Prix is also in doubt. The official calendar, to be published later on Wednesday by governing body the FIA, has been seen by BBC Sport. It contains 20 races with Brazil listed as provisional. F1 commercial boss Bernie Ecclestone told the FIA he was still in talks with Brazil's president and could not confirm the race's place on the schedule until January. The Canadian race in Montreal, which had also been in doubt, has been confirmed. Germany was unable to complete a deal for the race to be held at Hockenheim. In the country's biennial swap deal, it is the turn of the Nurburgring but that circuit has financial problems and cannot host the F1 race. The season starts in Australia on 26 March and ends in Abu Dhabi on 26 November. The British Grand Prix is on 16 July. The race in Baku in Azerbaijan has been moved back a week to 25 June to avoid a clash with the Le Mans 24 Hours. At the meeting, the FIA also said it had identified 11 corners at circuits around the world where changes needed to be made to ensure there was no controversy about drivers gaining advantage by going off the track. This was a major issue at last month's Mexican Grand Prix, where there was a debate about incidents involving Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton and Red Bull's Max Verstappen. It is likely that this will be dealt with by installing steep 'sausage kerbs' that slow cars down if they go off track. 2017 calendar in full 26 March Australia (Melbourne) 9 April China (Shanghai) 16 April Bahrain (Sakhir) 30 April Russia (Sochi) 14 May Spain (Barcelona) 28 May Monaco 11 June Canada (Montreal) 25 June Azerbaijan (Baku) 9 July Austria (Spielberg) 16 July Britain (Silverstone) 30 July Hungary (Budapest) 27 August Belgium (Spa-Francorchamps) 3 September Italy (Monza) 17 September Singapore (Marina Bay) 1 October Malaysia (Sepang) 8 October Japan (Suzuka) 22 October USA (Austin) 29 October Mexico (Mexico City) 12 November Brazil (Sao Paulo)* 26 November Abu Dhabi * = to be confirmed BBC http://www.bbc.com/sport/formula1/38160269
  3. Olympic officials say rowing, swim venues will stay in Tokyo TOKYO (AP) - Olympic officials have agreed to keep the rowing and swimming venues at their planned sites in Tokyo for the 2020 Games. A decision on the volleyball venue has been postponed until Christmas. Representatives of the International Olympic Committee, Tokyo organizers, Japan’s central and city governments have been discussing ways of reducing costs, including possibly moving three sports from planned new venues to existing ones. The group was established in October after a Tokyo government panel said the Olympics cost could exceed 3 trillion yen ($27 billion) without drastic cuts.

  4. Future host cities ready to draw inspiration from ‘marvellous’ Rio Games facebook Share twitter Share The IOC Debriefing Olympic Games Rio 2016 got underway on 28 November in Tokyo, the host city of the next edition of the Games of the Olympiad. Organised by the IOC, the event has brought 25 members of the Rio 2016 Organising Committee to the Japanese capital in order to share their knowledge and experience with representatives from future Olympic host cities. Attending the Debriefing are approximately 500 delegates from Tokyo 2020, 25 from PyeongChang 2018, 17 from Beijing 2022 and five from each of the 2024 candidate cities. The event is designed for them to learn and share based on the experience of Rio 2016, from the seven years of preparation to the delivery of the 16 days of competition and the ongoing process of securing the post-Games legacy. The IOC President, Thomas Bach, delivered a message via video to the opening day’s plenary session. In his message, the IOC President pointed out that half the world’s population had tuned into Olympic coverage: “We had an increase of 75% of produced broadcast hours compared to London 2012. We had 5 billion impressions on our social media platforms.” He went on to say: “These were marvellous Games in the Marvellous City. Hopefully, you can carry the inspiration and energy that we saw in Brazil to the next host cities.” “Amazing”, was how Brazilian Olympic Committee President Carlos Arthur Nuzman described the hosting process. “Brazil had enormous pride in this moment,” he said. “We won the Games for the transformation, and Rio delivered history.” Eduardo Paes, Mayor of Rio de Janeiro, echoed his compatriot’s view, highlighting the dramatic transformation of his city as a result of hosting the Games. “There is one Rio before the Games and one Rio after the Games, and this is what I'm sure will happen to Tokyo.” IOC IOC Coordination Commission Chair Nawal El Moutawakel expanded on the transformational influence that the Games had exerted on the host city. “The 2016 Games became a catalyst for urban development, which has spurred investment in Rio that would otherwise not have happened,” she said. “The improvements in the city's infrastructure are a good example. In just seven years, the number of people with access to good quality public transport increased from just 18 per cent in 2009, when Rio was elected, to 63 per cent in 2016. There are now four new rapid bus lines, a better rail service and a new light rail system, as well as improved airports. “The IOC actively supports efforts in social development as part of its overall engagement and as part of the Olympic legacy, and one example is Rio’s Transforma education programme,” continued El Moutawakel. “This took sport to more than 12,000 schools across Brazil, and encouraged more than six million young people to lead healthier lifestyles.” Tokyo 2020 President Toshiro Mori said that the Japanese capital would certainly draw inspiration from the 2016 Games: “I believe that Rio 2016 was a superb Games which conveyed the passion of Brazil to the rest of the world.” He added that he was very much “looking forward to learning from the experiences of the Rio 2016 Games.” Meanwhile, Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike, who received the Olympic flag from Mayor Paes during the 2016 Closing Ceremony, expressed her admiration for everything that had been achieved by the organisers of the Rio Games. “I have the deepest respect for your hard work,” she told the Rio delegates. “I clearly remember sensing the full weight of responsibility as it became Tokyo's turn to host the Games, and we will firmly apply the Rio experience and advance thorough preparations for the success of the 2020 Games.” https://www.olympic.org/news/future-host-cities-ready-to-draw-inspiration-from-marvellous-rio-games
  5. Koike describes pressure to succeed as Rio Games debriefing begins As the International Olympic Committee kicked off a three-day debriefing session Monday on the Rio Games, Tokyo Gov. Yuriko Koike said she feels pressured to ensure the Tokyo Olympics succeeds in 2020. “With the world watching, I accepted the two flags of the Olympics and Paralympics from the (Rio) mayor and felt then that it is now Tokyo’s turn,” Koike said. “The flag itself was not heavy, but the burden of responsibility which comes along with it was.” “We need to capitalize on the experience from the Rio Games as we prepare for 2020.” Meeting at a hotel in Tokyo’ Minato Ward, the IOC, together with the International Paralympic Committee and the Rio organizing committee, is holding a series of workshops to transfer their knowledge to the host cities of the next three Olympics — Pyeongchang (2018), Tokyo (2020) and Beijing (2022). The bidders for the 2024 Summer Games — Los Angeles, Budapest and Paris — are also attending. IOC President Thomas Bach, who did not attend, said in a video message that with Rio now over, Tokyo is the IOC’s priority. “It is important for Rio 2016 to share the experience with future host cities,” Bach said. “So it is great that representatives from Pyeongchang 2018, Tokyo 2020 and Beijing are all joining the discussions.” “Now, all our attention turns to Tokyo, to build on Rio’s success and write the next chapter of the Olympic Games. I’m confident that the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 can be a transformative moment for all of Japan.” One of the main issues to be discussed at the debriefing, which will be followed by a meeting of the 2020 coordination commission on Thursday and Friday, will be the matter of Tokyo’s budget, which the organizing committee is trying to keep to around ¥2 trillion. The metropolitan government originally estimated the total cost could reach ¥3 trillion. Some sense of direction is expected to be given Tuesday, when top officials from a four-party working group including the central and metropolitan governments, the IOC and the 2020 organizers are scheduled to meet. A decision on the venues for swimming, volleyball and rowing/canoe sprint is set to be announced in conjunction with the overall budget, which has caused a national uproar. Koike’s aggressive reform panel has made trimming the fat budgets for the Olympics and the Tsukiji fish market replacement project a priority since taking office earlier this year. Tokyo is also hoping to get a few cost-cutting tips from Rio during the debriefing. “In the organization in Brazil, a lot of attention was given to cutting costs,” said Toshiro Muto, CEO of the 2020 organizing committee. “The use of overlay at the venues was noticeable, and using not just taxpayers’ money but private funding was also noticeable. It was an important suggestion made to us.” The Rio organizers urged Tokyo to work fast and play nice. “The clock is ticking,” said Nawal El Moutawakel, who chaired the coordination commission for Rio. “There is no time to lose at any moment so keep on the pressure and work hand in hand. The Tokyo team really needs to be united and speak one language and have one goal.” Kyodo http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2016/11/28/national/koike-describes-pressure-succeed-rio-games-debriefing-begins/#.WDvy9VzF8ks
  6. Formula One: Button and Massa make proud exits ABU DHABI: Jenson Button and Felipe Massa made emotional exits from Formula One on Sunday (Nov 27) when they took part in their final races of long and successful careers. Briton Button, the 2009 champion, and Massa, who missed out on the 2008 title in dramatic circumstances after winning his home Brazilian Grand Prix, were both given warm farewells by their teams, friends and paddock regulars. Button was forced into retirement after only 12 laps of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix won by former McLaren team-mate and compatriot Lewis Hamilton, for Mercedes. Hamilton's current Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg finished second to claim his first drivers' world title. Massa finished the race in ninth position to score points in his final race for Williams, the team with which Button started his career. "I am so proud and it is very emotional," said Massa. "I have enjoyed it all so much and will have wonderful memories of my time." Massa drove 250 races for Sauber, Ferrari and Williams. Button, who came into Formula One aged 20 in 2000, started 305 races and, like Massa, has been much admired for his easy-going personality. "Our reliability is something we pride ourselves on -- we don't have failures. It's so unusual. It's unlucky, but to be fair I don't really care," he said on Sunday. "But it doesn't change any feelings of my career and ending my career. I'm very content with what I've achieved. Tonight's going to be a hell of a lot of fun."

  7. Draw procedures of the Official Draw confirmed (FIFA.com) 24 Nov 2016 © Getty Images The Organising Committee met at the Kazan Tennis Academy and approved the draw procedures of the Official Draw for the FIFA Confederations Cup. The show, which will unveil the road to the coveted trophy of the Tournament of Champions, will take place at the same venue on Saturday 26 November and will be conducted by FIFA’s Deputy Secretary General for Football, Zvonimir Boban, and Chief Competitions & Events Officer, Colin Smith. They will be assisted by five-time Russian Premier League winner Sergei Semak and two-time Olympic gold medallist Yelena Isinbaeva. Hosts Russia and the three top teams based on the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking released earlier today (Germany, Chile and Portugal) will be in Pot 1, with the next four teams (Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and the African contender to be known in February) in Pot 2. They will then be drawn one by one into two groups – A and B – and their position within Groups A and B will be determined by drawing balls from the respective group pots. A full explanation of the draw procedures can be found at the top of the related items on the right-hand side of this article. At the same meeting, the Organising Committee members also approved the tournament’s regulations, which are now also available on FIFA.com. These regulations come into force with immediate effect, subject to the approval of the FIFA Council on 10 January 2017. http://www.fifa.com/confederationscup/news/y=2016/m=11/news=draw-procedures-of-the-official-draw-confirmed-2854215.html
  8. Tokyo will cut building costs of 2020 Olympics rather than move venues – reports Tokyo is leaning towards building new but cheaper venues for some 2020 Olympic Games events rather than moving them elsewhere, Japanese media reported on Thursday. The city’s authorities are unlikely to make major changes to the plans for several Games venues, but will instead make efforts to pare costs, newspapers reported. Tokyo’s governor, Yuriko Koike, ordered a review of ballooning Olympic expenses that recommended changing three venues in an effort to rein in costs that were projected to hit 3tn yen ($26.6bn), four times the estimates made when Tokyo won the right to host the Games. Cost-cutting proposals included moving rowing and canoe/kayak sprint events 400km (250 miles) north of Tokyo to use existing facilities rather than building new ones in the capital, a move opposed by Olympic and sports officials. But the city now appears to prefer building new venues for these and several other events in Tokyo as originally planned, although it would cut costs by modifying plans, the Nikkei and other papers reported, quoting people connected with the matter. For the rowing and canoe/kayak site, known as the Sea Forest Waterway, the city planned to cut costs from 49.1bn yen to 29.8bn yen by building temporary seats, the Nikkei said. Similar modifications would be made for planned gymnastics and swimming venues, it said, adding that a final decision would be made at a meeting between Tokyo officials, central government, 2020 organisers and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) at the end of November. A Tokyo government official and Tokyo 2020 declined to comment, citing ongoing discussions. Tokyo 2020 added in a statement: “As for the process and the details of the working group meetings, all four parties have already agreed that these will not be announced publicly until we reach a conclusion.” Tokyo’s original bid pledged to keep most venues within 8km of the athlete’s village in downtown Tokyo, though several have already been moved. Cycling will take place in Shizuoka prefecture, about 200km west of Tokyo. IOC reforms known as “Agenda 2020” – carried out with the aim of making the Olympics more sustainable – urge the use of existing facilities, even in other cities or countries, if it makes financial and practical sense. But the IOC’s president, Thomas Bach, said last month that while the IOC was concerned about rising costs for the Tokyo Games, the experience of the athletes had to be a priority for any planning. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2016/nov/24/tokyo-will-cut-building-costs-of-2020-olympics-rather-than-move-venues-reports
  9. Bruce Arena hired as new USMNT manager, replacing Jurgen Klinsmann U.S. Soccer announced that they have hired Arena to take over for Jurgen Klinsmann, who was fired on Monday. Klinsmann was given the axe after two years of struggles, but mainly because of losses to Mexico and Costa Rica to open the final round of World Cup qualifying that left the Americans dead last in the qualifying group. The immediately focus for Arena will be preparing the U.S. for their next World Cup qualifiers, in March, which the Americans must do well in as they try to dig themselves out of a hole and qualify for the World Cup. ... http://www.foxsports.com/soccer/story/bruce-arena-usmnt-manager-jurgen-klinsmann-112216
  10. Malaysia to stop hosting Formula One Grand Prix after 2018 Malaysia will not host a Formula One Grand Prix after the current agreement expires in 2018, the country's tourism and culture minister said on Monday. "After 2018 no longer," Nazri Abdul Aziz told reporters in parliament when asked about reports that the country was considering halting the annual race. "(From the) longer term perspective, it's probably the correct decision because it's more expensive and no longer that attractive," the minister added, according to audio recordings of the comments heard by Reuters. Malaysia had been considering cancelling the race due to declining ticket sales and TV viewing figures. Earlier in the day, Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone has cast doubt over the future of the sport in Southeast Asia by telling a German magazine that Singapore no longer wanted to host a grand prix after its current deal expires next year. The Malaysian Grand Prix was last held in October, when Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo claimed his first win of the season. State oil and gas firm Petronas are the title sponsors for the F1 race in Kuala Lumpur. The company has been hit hard in recent times by the tumble in oil prices.

  11. Beijing starts collecting emblem designs for 2022 Winter Games BEIJING started to collect emblem designs for both 2022 Winter Olympic and Paralympic games on Sunday. Designers from Beijing universities were the first to submit their works, with many more designed expected both online and offline in the coming 10 days. Beijing launched a worldwide campaign to seek designs for the emblems at an event held to celebrate the first anniversary of the successful bid for the 2022 Olympic Games in late July. "The designs should embody Chinese culture and the Olympic movement," said Zhao Wei, an official from Beijing 2022 Organizing Committee. A selection panel will pick 10 candidate designs from the applications, before the Beijing 2022 Organizing Committee choose one winning entry and two as back-up designs. The winner of the designs will be announced in the second half of 2017. http://www.shanghaidaily.com/sports/olympics/Beijing-starts-collecting-emblem-designs-for-2022-Winter-Games/shdaily.shtml

  14. World baseball chief plays down Fukushima Olympic fears The president of world baseball’s governing body on Friday played down fears that the sport’s top stars will refuse to play in Fukushima if the nuclear disaster-hit prefecture hosts games at the 2020 Olympics. Olympic chiefs are currently considering a proposal to play part of the Tokyo 2020 baseball and softball competition in Fukushima Prefecture, which in 2011 suffered the world’s worst nuclear accident in 25 years when the Great East Japan Earthquake triggered a meltdown at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant. The prefecture successfully hosted games at the Under-15 Baseball World Cup in the city of Iwaki this summer, and World Baseball Softball Confederation President Riccardo Fraccari believes senior teams will not be deterred from playing there in 2020 should its bid to host games be accepted. “This can be an issue, but from the data I received, the situation at this moment is not dangerous in Fukushima,” said Fraccari, who held talks with Tokyo 2020 organizers in Tokyo on Friday and will visit the prefecture on Saturday to inspect potential venues. “Even at the last Under-15 World Cup, only one country refused to come. But the rest were there. In three years — just now the situation is good, so I think from this point there won’t be any problem for countries to come to Fukushima.” Fraccari must give his consent to the prefecture’s bid before it can be put before the International Olympic Committee, which will make a final decision when it holds its executive board meeting from Dec. 6 to 8. Three venues in the prefecture are under consideration — Iwaki Green Stadium in Iwaki, Azuma Baseball Stadium of the city of Fukushima and Koriyama Kaiseizan Baseball Stadium in Koriyama. “From the perspective of the WBSC, I know the importance of baseball and softball in Japan, and I know how we can facilitate the recovery from the disaster,” said Italian Fraccari. “If the field in Fukushima has all the requirements, we can take it into consideration and analyze internally the possibility. “But I repeat, we have to check many things because we have to see how it’s possible to include it in the schedule, the distance, the fields. There are many issues and we won’t take any decision yet.” Baseball and softball were voted onto the 2020 program as a joint bid after an absence of 12 years at an IOC session in Rio de Janeiro in August ahead of the Summer Games. The format of the competitions has yet to be decided. Nippon Professional Baseball has agreed to suspend play for the duration of the July 24 to Aug. 9 Tokyo Olympics, but Major League Baseball has yet to say whether it will cooperate. “There is, even from the major leagues, a desire to be more international,” said Fraccari. “Now we are discussing, but before we discuss we need to have the details of the tournament, the details of the schedule. I think that we can find a solution to have the best games possible.” Fraccari also played down suggestions that pressure to agree to Fukushima’s proposal, which was floated by IOC President Thomas Bach during a visit to Tokyo last month, will affect his decision. “I used to be an umpire, so I know what it means to be under pressure,” he said. http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2016/11/18/national/world-baseball-chief-plays-fukushima-olympic-fears/#.WC7lHyTF8ks
  15. England & Scotland poppy decision leads to Fifa disciplinary action Fifa has opened disciplinary proceedings against England and Scotland for wearing poppies in Friday's World Cup qualifier. Players from both countries wore black armbands bearing a poppy during England's 3-0 win at Wembley, with the game taking place on Armistice Day. Rules forbid "political" statements on shirts. Fifa, world football's governing body, would not "speculate on any outcome or provide an estimated timeline". ... A points deduction is the most serious sanction available but a fine is considered to be more likely. The British FAs would then have an opportunity to challenge that fine via Fifa's appeals process and a further chance to appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport - a course of action that would probably cost more than the fine.

  16. Pat Hickey: former IOC president allowed to leave Brazil 'for health reasons' A judge in Brazil has ruled that former Olympic Council of Ireland president Pat Hickey is to be given back his passport and permitted to leave the country for medical reasons. Mr Hickey is among a number of people facing charges related to a probe into alleged ticket touting at Rio 2016. He has denied all allegations made against him. Although released almost two weeks after his arrest in August, officials have retained Mr Hickey's passport. A judge at the Special Court for Supporter and Large Events in Rio de Janeiro, which had jurisdiction during the Olympic and Paralympic Games, ruled on Wednesday that Mr Hickey can be allowed to leave Brazil "to treat a health problem". Mr Hickey, 71, must pay a bond to the court of €410,000 (£352,240). 'No links with Brazil' He has temporarily stood aside as president of the OCI during the investigation. In her deliberation, the judge said that, as Mr Hickey "has no links with Brazil", she would allow him to leave to receive medical attention. She noted that there was a risk Mr Hickey may not return to Brazil, but that this needed to be balanced with health concerns. The judge said that Mr Hickey should be allowed to attend to his health, provided that this does not interfere with the ongoing case. In addition to payment of the bond, Mr Hickey must agree to fully cooperate with the legal process in Brazil and be present for any calls that are made of him as the process continues. The judge further agreed that the case be split, as per a request from the public defender's office. This means Marcus Evans, Michael Glynn, Ken Murray, Maarten Van Os, David Gilmore, and Martin Studd will answer to one legal process in Brazil. Mr Hickey, Kevin Mallon, Barbara Carnieri and Eamonn Collins will answer to another. She also rejected requests made that the legal process be shelved due to a "lack of just cause" as was claimed by Mr Hickey's and Mr Mallon's legal teams. In her judgement, Justice Leal de Melo also gave permission for Brazilian authorities to have full access to phone and other electronic devices which were apprehended during the police investigation and she gave 30 days for Brazilian police to come back with their findings.

  17. Great Britain named best Olympic team after Rio 2016 Great Britain have been named the world's best Olympic team following their record-breaking performance at Rio 2016. Team GB's women's hockey team have also been named best female team at the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) awards in Doha. Britain finished second in the medal table, ahead of China for the first time, winning 27 golds, 23 silvers and 17 bronzes - and became the first team to win more medals after hosting the Games. "That feat created history as we became the first nation ever to win more medals at a Games immediately after hosting, surpassing our achievement of 65 medals at London 2012," said British Olympic Association (BOA) chairman Lord Coe, who collected the award. BOA chief executive Bill Sweeney said: "It's a fantastic achievement for both the women's hockey team and the whole of the British Olympic Association. We've had an incredible year." There were also awards for some of those behind some of the most memorable and inspirational moments at the Rio Games: ... BBC http://www.bbc.com/sport/olympics/37990944
