2nd Bundesliga - Nuremberg starts successfully under Canadi - Sport
The club is looking forward to the debut of the new coach over a header. After the Australian Mack Horton's protest against Sun Yang, an athlete flies out of her own team.
Football, 2nd League: The 1. FC Nuremberg is outstanding from the starting blocks. The Bundesliga relegated won the first competitive match under his new coach Damir Canadi 1: 0 (0: 0) at Dynamo Dresden. The hit of the day scored the Austrian newcomer Nikola Dovedan (53.). The biggest opportunity for the club in the first round had awarded striker Mikael Ishak just before the half-time whistle. Before that, Dresden's new goalkeeper Kevin Broll did not have much to do.
Scoring chances, however, remained in short supply on the other side, as Dynamo did not finish his counterattack well enough. In the second section Nuremberg used his first good opportunity. After a precise flank of new signing Oliver Sorg the former Heidenheimer Dovedan was head to head. Dresden then increased the pressure, found in front of 29,152 spectators against the well-staggered defensive of the Franks but no getting through. For the season opener, VfB Stuttgart on Friday evening in the duel of Bundesliga relegated against Hannover 96 with 2: 1 (2: 1) prevailed.
Swimming, doping: Six days after Mack Horton's sensational World Cup protest against the controversial Sun Yang, the Australian swimming team had to admit a case of doping itself. Twenty-year-old Shayna Jack, four-time relay medal winner of the World Cup two years ago in Budapest, has been tested positive for a banned substance. The Australian Federation confirmed media reports on Saturday and said the positive rehearsal of the freestyle swimmer came from a training check on 26 June. Jack, who had initially stated "personal reasons" for her departure from the training camp in Japan, confessed to the doping case on her Instagram page, but asserted her innocence.
With "great sadness and grief," she had to start the return journey because "a forbidden substance" had been found in her body, wrote Jack. She emphasized, "I have NOT knowingly taken this substance." Jack was earmarked for the 4x100m freestyle relay that won gold in Gwangju. Also over the 4x200 m she had calculated chances on an employment. The Australian Association suspended the athlete for the time being. The doping case comes for Australia's team at the wrong time. On the one hand, the swim nation presents itself after the last few successful times, one year before the Olympics, with a strong bear and again at eye level with the USA. On the other hand, Olympic champion Horton swung himself to the leader of the protest against doping Sun Yang from China, when he refused to go to the podium, the handshake and the joint photo of the medal winners at the award ceremony after the 400-m finale.
Swimming, World Cup: Open water relay world champion Sarah Köhler has just missed another medal at the swimming World Cup in South Korea after silver over 1500 m freestyle. The 25-year-old finished fourth in the 800m final and clearly beat the 1987 German record of Anke Möhring from 1987 with a time of 8: 16.43 minutes. Gold went to record world champion Katie Ledecky of the USA, who won her 15th world title. Prior to this, many-time starter Marius Kusch had taken eighth place in the final over 100 m butterfly in the victory of US star Caeleb Dressel in 51.66 seconds. "Of course the last one was not the goal," said the Essen, who trains in the USA, "but I'm incredibly satisfied that I was even in the final." Surprisingly in the final over 50 m chest swam the World Cup debut Anna Elendt. The 17-year-old from Darmstadt set her second personal best time of the day in 31.10 seconds. "I could not have dreamed it better," said Elendt.
