Osaka becomes highest-earning female athlete

She earned $1.4 million (£1.15 million) more than American great Williams who had topped the list for the last four years.Maria Sharapova had held the record for 12-month earnings for a female athlete, having made $29.7 million (£24.3 million) in 2015.Female tennis players have always occupied top spot on Forbes’s women’s list since 1990 with either Williams or Russian Sharapova leading the way from 2004.Osaka burst into the limelight by beating Williams in the 2018 U.S. Open final – a highly-controversial match in which Williams was given three code violations by the umpire.The Japanese then won the next Grand Slam, the 2019 Australian Open, although her form has dipped since and she has fallen from world number one to 10th on the WTA rankings. Florida-based Osaka’s mixed heritage – she has a Japanese mother and Haitian-American father – her engaging personality and attacking style of play have combined to make her one of the world’s most marketable athletes.Part of the stable of management group IMG, Osaka currently has 15 sponsorship deals, including with global brands such as Nike, Nissan Motors, Shiseido and Yonex.Tags: Grand SlamNaomi OsakaSerena Williamslast_img read more

Strong passing and ball control on both sides kept play locked in the middle of the field. MDI senior sweeper Molly Carroll wasn’t letting anything past her. Senior outside midfielder Maeve Geary expertly brought the ball back down when it went in the air.The Orono offense took their first shot on goal 20 minutes into the game. It went wide.Three minutes later, the Lady Trojans took their first shot, which was knocked away by the Red Riot keeper.MDI goalie Keely McConomy caught the second Orono shot and ran out of the box to kick the next one away. Another battle at midfield followed with passes intercepted on both sides.With seven minutes left in the half, a foul on MDI led to an Orono penalty kick, which got past McConomy into the right side of the goal. Orono made several more shot attempts when play resumed. They all went wide, but ate up the clock.MDI went back on the attack with Carroll, Kanu, Rachel Jacobs and Emma Fernald in on the play. But the Trojans couldn’t close the deal, and Orono was up 1-0 at the half.The Lady Trojans were kept on the defensive in much of the second half. Orono forwards got behind McConomy for a moment, but the MDI defense had her back stopping them cold. Junior Opal Curless got a few looks at the goal with assists from Fernald. Kanu and Katie Guarino had impressive headers to keep the ball in play and get control.The second and final Orono goal came with six minutes left on the clock. McConomy dove for it but missed.“I’m excited,” Savage said. “There has to be a balance between wanting to improve when you lose and not being too frustrated. We’ve had a lot of games, and we haven’t had a lot of practice. I like that, but there are lots of things to work on.The defensive players are all new to the team except Carroll. “We’re concentrating on defense a lot,” Savage said. “It takes a long time” for the new group to get familiar enough with their teammates and strategy.The Lady Trojans are set to host Hampden Sept. 4 at 5 p.m. After that they’ll have nearly a week of practice before their season opener Sept. 10 in Old Town.

Olympic President Urges Governments to Focus on Those Who Aid Cheating…

first_imgMIAMI, Florida – According to an AFP report, the president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Thomas Bach is urging governments around the world to be more involved to help “drain the doping swamp” by going after the entourage of cheating athletes.“The athlete is not the only culprit,” Bach told this week’s World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) conference in Katowice.“The athlete is supported and sometimes even driven to or forced into doping by a secretive network which may include coaches, agents, dealers, managers, officials from government or sport organizations, doctors, physiotherapists or others,” he said.But while sports organizations can punish competitors who test positive they are powerless “to identify and sanction in a deterrent way the athletes’ entourage”.As an example, Bach said if the IOC identified a doctor guilty of doping it will banish him from the games.Bach cited state-doping in Russia, the Aderlass blood-doping operation, and the scandal-hit Nike Oregon Project as all highlighting the “urgent need to focus much more on the athletes’ entourage”.By holding everybody implicated in a doping case accountable “we can take a major step forward to strengthen justice and credibility for the protection of the clean athletes and to drain the doping swamp.”last_img read more
