KFC Uerdingen – Planned Insolvency – Sport

KFC Uerdingen:Mountain solvency

The troubled third division soccer team KFC Uerdingen has surprisingly initiated insolvency proceedings under self-administration: “We consider this step to be the optimal solution to secure the future of the KFC,” said President and investor Mikhail Ponomarew, who officially plans to leave in summer at the latest. Game operations should definitely be continued, the hitherto unsuccessful search for new donors continues. Uerdingen benefits from the fact that the DFB is planning insolvency due to the pandemic, which frees the club from most of its debt burden without the previously usual nine-point deduction.

Ski jumping – German team in weak form – sport

Germany’s ski jumpers around Markus Eisenbichler fell into a small performance gap after the Four Hills Tournament. The 29-year-old spent a few minutes in the leader’s box in Zakopane, but only ended up in eighth place and thus missed the podium in the third individual after the traditional event. “The conclusion is rather modest. I always have a bit of a mistake in it,” he said. National coach Stefan Horngacher, on the other hand, recognized an improvement on the previous day and said in the ARD, “the band has now marched forward and not back”. Although Eisenbichler left his overall World Cup rivals Halvor Egner Granerud (Norway) and Kamil Stoch (Poland) behind, he had no chance against the best of the day around the Norwegian winner Marius Lindvik. Behind Lindvik, Anze Lanisek (Slovenia) and Robert Johansson (Norway) completed the podium. For Karl Geiger, not much is going on since the podium in Bischofshofen. After two disappointments in Titisee-Neustadt (25th and 11th), things didn’t work out much better in Zakopane either: With jumps of 126 and 129.5 meters, Geiger did not make it into the top ranks as 25th. The team competition on Saturday had already brought surprises. The Austrians, who were badly plagued by Corona, won without their best, Stefan Kraft, ahead of Poland and Norway. The team of the German Ski Association came in sixth.

NBA – Schröder loses bet – and wins – sport

Dennis Schröder lost a $ 100 bet during an NBA game – and still had fun. Immediately in front of the best German basketball professional, LeBron James turned away in the duel between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Houston Rockets before his throw from the three-point line was even near the basket – and let himself be from his cheering teammates celebrate after the sunk ball. “He said: You won’t bet,” said James after the 117-100 win against the Rockets. “To officially make a bet, you have to shake hands with a man or look him in the eyes. So I turned and looked him in the eyes.” Schröder had told James that he would place “a Benjamin” – colloquially this means the 100 dollar banknote with the picture of Benjamin Franklin. For the Lakers, the second success in a row against Houston was also the sixth away win in a row. Without a defeat after six games in foreign halls, the champion was last 35 years ago at this point in time.

In the course of the increasing number of positive corona tests, the NBA has issued stricter rules. For example, players on the bench must wear a mouth and nose covering at all times and may only do without it in a separate area immediately after substitutions or before substitutions.
