RFU President Alexander Dyukov at a press conference after the executive committee of the organization expressed his attitude to a possible change in the limit for legionnaires in Russian football. His words are quoted by the correspondent of RBC.

“This system is ‘8 + 17’ – it is more effective than the limit ‘6 + 5’. We see that clubs have become more selective in the selection of foreign players. It became easier for coaches to work. The playing time of young Russians has grown. But any limit, no matter how you set it up, has its drawbacks – it is flawed. And, of course, the optimal system in which there is no limit. We are now discussing the issue of the limit with the government, ”Dyukov said.

In Tinkoff – Russian Premier League (RPL), the limit is “8 legionnaires + 17 Russians” in the application.

In early July, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko, following a meeting with the participation of Minister of Sports Oleg Matytsin, representatives of the presidential administration, as well as heads of sports federations, said that the results of the Russian national team at the European Championship were unsatisfactory, pointing out the dominance of legionnaires in clubs and an overheated salary market athletes. Until mid-July, the Ministry of Sports, together with sports federations and professional leagues, was instructed to prepare proposals for establishing a ceiling for athletes’ salaries. Also, the department will develop proposals for optimizing the number of legionnaires in Russian teams and the requirements for them.

The RFU Control and Disciplinary Committee will no longer be able to cancel erroneously shown yellow cards, which entail automatic disqualification of players for the next match of the Russian championship. Changes have been made to the new edition of the regulations posted on the RFU website.

Now the FTC has no right to cancel the decision of the referee, who mistakenly showed a yellow card following the results of the post-match proceedings. Previously, this item was introduced in an experimental mode at the suggestion of the Krasnodar football club, initially it was supported by many teams in the league. However, it was decided not to use this on an ongoing basis, having excluded clause from Article 52 “Special Jurisdiction of the RFU Control and Disciplinary Committee.”

The new season of Tinkoff – Russian Premier League starts on 23 July. The current winner of the tournament is Zenit.

Usain Bolt ruled out that his records fall in this edition of JO

The Jamaican Athlete Usain Bolt, world record holder in the 100 and 200 meters, declared himself convinced that his records will not fall in the Tokyo Olympics and bet on the American Trayvon Bromell in the Final of 100 meters.

In an interview published by the International Olympic Committee, Bolt, retired after the London 2017 World Cups, predicts that the Olympic 100-meter Final will be very fast, but not so fast that his world record of 9.58 falls.

“I’m very confident (that there will be no record). I’m not saying it won’t happen, but I don’t think they are level enough to run 9.58 (the 100 meters) or 19.19 (their world record of 200),” the Jamaican commented.

Bolt’s sports career exploded in the Beijing Olympics 2008, when he obtained the titles of 100 and 200 meters with two world records. The current ones date from the following year, from Berlin World Cups.

Regarding the future 100-meter Olympic champion, he showed a predilection for the American Trayvon Bromell, which leads the world ranking of the year with a mark of 9.77 seconds.

“He has made a lot of progress, he has shown that he is ready and fit. If he stays that way, he should be at the top,” he said referring to the American.



Come on Peter! Stand up for our poor Dinja

by Jan-Jaap Corré

For those who missed it: The international equestrian federation FEI had an intern and he made a mistake. As it is with interns. As a result, the owner of Dinja’s top horse Hermès, Joop van Uytert, has inadvertently been linked to the German address of a horse owner with whom he works. Dinja is Dutch and her top horse (on paper) German and that is not allowed. Because of this, they can’t shine together in Tokyo.

Bad joke

Van Liere must have been looking for a hidden camera when she heard this. A really bad joke, shouldn’t it be? A friendly smile and back to the Games. But it wasn’t a joke, it’s a nightmare that befell Dinja van Liere at the most important moment in her career.

We have known her for years in Zeeland sport. In 2012, she already won bronze at the World Championships for Young Horses in Germany and in the years that followed she achieved both regional and national success. Now that she has a top horse with Hermès, it was time for the next step: the highest global podium. Nothing stood in the way of that, she thought. And everyone thought. But that was without counting that probably well-meaning intern and especially that much too stiff equestrian association.

fighter family

Van Liere comes from a family of fighters. Her brother Joeri was a good motocross rider, but had a bad crash at the Supercross in Goes in 2014 and suffered a spinal cord injury. Now, more than seven years later, he can walk again with the help of a walking brace and he has thrown himself into wheelchair basketball. With great success, because as a member of the Dutch team he has a chance to play at the Paralympics one day.


Sister Dinja is still going to the Olympic Games in Tokyo this year. She can go with her other horse, Haute Couture, as a reserve. “It is actually very nice that I can go to Tokyo, but at the moment it is difficult,” she says about it after her case was rejected by the sports tribunal CAS on Monday.

gross scandal

But of course it’s not “very nice” at all. It’s a major scandal. And that’s why I’m surprised that we haven’t heard chef de mission Pieter van den Hoogenband say a word about this yet. Nothing.

“No one is going to run or swim faster than the chef de mission,” he said in an interview with the AD earlier this week. That’s right, Pieter, but a chef de mission with such great prestige and track record can open doors that remain closed to others. So pull out all the stops to get Dinja to Tokyo with Hermès after all. It can just result in another medal for the Dutch team, so it is also in your own interest. But even more important: make sure that Dinja is not deprived of the moment of her life.

Tim Tszyu, the son of the former undisputed world champion Kostya Tszyu, defended his WBO Global title in the weight category up to 69.9 kg. He defeated Australian Steve Spark by TKO in the third round.

The boxing evening took place in Newcastle, Australia. Initially, Tszyu was supposed to fight with Australian Michael Zerafa, but he refused the fight due to coronavirus restrictions, he was replaced by Spark.

Match TV responded to claims of “misleading viewers”

The first round was held in an equal fight, but already from the second Tszyu seized the initiative. In the third round, after hitting the body, Spark was knocked down. After some time, Tszyu hit the body well again, his opponent fell, and the referee stopped the fight without opening the score.

The 26-year-old Tszyu now has 19 wins (15 by knockout) and not a single defeat. He won five knockout wins in a row. Tszyu ranks first in the WBO rankings and has the right to fight the world champion, who is now Argentine Brian Castagno.

Spark, 24, suffered a second defeat with 12 wins (11 by KO).

The match was broadcast on its website “Telesport”. And “Match TV” before the fight showed a recording of Tszyu’s previous fight – against Dennis Hogan, which took place on March 31 and ended with Tszyu’s victory by knockout.

Telesport compared this situation with the one that arose in January 2020, when Channel One broadcasted the World Youth Championship final between the national teams of Russia and Canada, and Match TV at the same time demonstrated a replay of the decisive match of the 2011 tournament. The Canadians won the 2020 championship, the Russians won the 2011 championship. Many viewers perceived the replay as a live broadcast.

In Match TV, they said that they wanted to broadcast Tszyu’s new fight live, but “the partners did not show understanding of the importance of showing the fight to a wide audience.” As for the replay of Tszyu’s old fight, his show ended before the start of the meeting with Spark.

Kostya Tszyu held world titles in all three prestigious versions in 2001-2003. In total, he has 31 wins (25 by knockout) and two defeats. Tszyu is also a world champion and two-time European champion among amateurs.
