No Holds Barred with Eddie Goldman
Episode 1465: No Holds Barred: The Fight Against Fixed Fights In Olympic Boxing, Women's Boxing News, on the WAAR Room with Chris Baldwin and Malissa Smith

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with our colleagues Chris Baldwin of Angry Afro Radio and Malissa Smith of Girlboxing on the WAAR Room. A video of this discussion has also been posted on the Angry Afro Radio YouTube page.Our discussion took place Sunday, October 3.We finally have proof of what many already knew or suspected: Much of Olympic boxing has been fixed.On September 30, an independent report, mainly focusing on boxing at the 2016 Rio Olympics, was released by an investigative team led by Professor Richard McLaren. His team also had helped document the Russian state-sponsored doping program in the Olympics.This report documented how officials in AIBA, the Olympic boxing federation, fixed the selection of referees and judges at the fights in the 2016 Olympics, how they manipulated results, the culture of corruption and bribery in Olympic boxing, and how these corrupt practices were carried out and enabled by the top leadership in AIBA at the time.As the report stated, in AIBA,"The people are the problem." It should also be added that what corrupt governments have done in the Olympic movement has been a key reason why Olympic boxing has been so corrupt. The full report can be read here.While this investigation was undertaken at the behest of the current, new leadership of AIBA, many questions remain as to whether or not corruption has been sufficiently rooted out in this organization. The International Olympic Committee suspended AIBA as boxing's Olympic governing body in June 2019, and thus far has not indicated if or when it will be reinstated. The IOC organized the boxing competition at the recently completed Tokyo Olympics without AIBA.We discussed what we know about how the Olympic boxing bouts were manipulated, some of the fights that may have been fixed, the obvious and not-so-obvious motives for this rampant corruption, the implications of this crisis in amateur and Olympic boxing for professional boxing, how this type of corruption in the overall Olympic movement is far from unique, and much more.Malissa Smith also brought us the latest news from women's boxing, including multi-divisional champ Amanda Serrano signing with Jake Paul's newly-formed promotional company. We discussed what this might mean for a potential showdown between Serrano and undisputed lightweight champion Katie Taylor, what is next for unbeaten middleweight and super welterweight champion Claressa Shields who has been fighting in MMA as of late, and much more.Plus, we discussed the postponement of the 2022 Gay Games in Hong Kong to 2023, the latest Triller Trash news and why they are the frontrunner for the 2021 Roger Mayweather "You Don't Know Shit About Boxing" Award, and more.All this is part of our in-depth coverage of the corrupt world of boxing and sports governance in general.Please also subscribe to the No Holds Barred page on Patreon for much more exclusive premium No Holds Barred content.Now you can also support our independent, No Holds Barred journalism by purchasing items such as T-shirts, hoodies, tank tops, mugs, pillows, masks, and even mini-skirts at the new No Holds Barred with Eddie Goldman shop on Redbubble.

#234 Dr. Richard Bailey: How to Turn Coaching into a True Profession (Replay)

Is the way we coach based upon the latest science, research, and best practices of how children learn? Or is it based upon how we were coached growing up? In this fantastic interview, Dr. Richard Bailey (@DrDickB), Head of Research at ICSSPE, separates fact from fiction and discusses some of the common mistakes that he sees coaches of all levels making around the world. He sheds light on what is missing in the coaching profession and the prevailing myths that cause us to approach athletic coaching in the wrong way. He talks about the need for coaching to rely on real science more than it currently does, the fallacy of coach training at the macro level, and what it would take to become a more professional field. He also digs into his research about the dangers of overpraised athletes and the big difference between leaning and training. Hint: it is not about drilling skills, it is about presenting problems. Tune in to hear this smart, humorous, and hard hitting conversation with one of sport's foremost experts. Bio Richard Bailey, the Head of Research at the International Council of Sport Science and Physical Education, is a former teacher in Primary and Secondary Schools, teacher trainer, coach and coach educator. He has been a full Professor at Canterbury, Roehampton, Birmingham and Liverpool in the UK and has directed studies that have influenced policy and practice both nationally and internationally. In addition to his position as Writer in Residence at the ICSSPE Executive Office he is an author and blogger. Richard has undertaken funded research in every continent of the world. He has worked with UNESCO as Expert Adviser for Physical Education, the World Health Organization, the European Union, and many similar agencies. He has carried out research on behalf of the English and Scottish governments, numerous educational and sports agencies. He was a contributing consultant for both Nike-led Designed to Move and Active Kids Do Better initiatives, and has directed numerous scientific reviews, including the most comprehensive review ever published on the benefits of physical education and sport (BERA, 2007‐2008), the UK's independent review of player development in sport (sportscoach, 2008‐2009), and the IOC-funded study of the contribution made by Sport in Education (IOC, 2004).

The economics of the Olympics – A golden opportunity or a bronze bust?

Welcome to Finance and Fury. As you might have seen, Brisbane has won the bid for the 2032 Olympics – but is this a good thing for the SEQ economy and the people living in it? in this episode we will have a look at the economics of the Olympics – we will Look at the costs and benefits of hosting the games – to see if firstly Brisbane/QLD is going to benefit – and if there is economic gain for being the host –– Lots to unpack here – lets get into it   Introduction - The Olympics have evolved dramatically over time  From going all the way back to the Ancient Greek times – to the first modern games which were held in 1896 Over time – like many things – Olympics became more commercialised – as over the past 60 years, both the costs of hosting the games and the revenue potentials have grown rapidly – but it seems like the costs have growth at a greater rate than the revenues - sparking controversy over hosting the games – as to whether it is of any benefit to the host city A growing number of economists argue that both the short- and long-term benefits of hosting the games are at best exaggerated and at worst non-existent, leaving many host countries with large debts and maintenance liabilities – so is this true? And if so, what does this mean for QLD and Australia at large I've got the data from a few studies – but the main one we will be looking at is – “Going for the Gold: The Economics of the Olympics” – link in the show notes at www.financeandfury.com.au  Costs Incurred When Hosting the Olympics On the cost side - there are three major categories – 1) general infrastructure such as transportation and housing to accommodate athletes and fans – 2) specific sports infrastructure required for competition venues – 3) and operational costs, including general administration as well as the opening and closing ceremony and security. General Infrastructure – One of the major expenses is the general infrastructure to accommodate the anticipated wave of tourists and athletes that descend upon the chosen city - cities commonly need to add roads, build or enhance airports, and construct rail lines to accommodate the large influx of people as well as build an Olympic Village to host the athletes The International Olympic Committee (IOC) requires that the host city for the Summer Games have a minimum of 40,000 hotel rooms available for spectators and an Olympic Village capable of housing 15,000 athletes and officials. Event Infrastructure - The Olympics also require spending on specialized sports infrastructure. Because of the somewhat obscure nature of many of the events, most cities do not have the facilities in place to host all of the competitions – Think about some of the events, from cycling, needing a velodrome to skateboarding which has been recently added – there are now 41 different sports, of which there are about 340 events all needing different facilities – all of these events and sports need tailored spaces to facilitate the events Additional Expenses - Once the facilities are in place, the Games require spending for operations including event management, transporting and accommodating the athletes, as well as the opening and closing ceremonies, and security So, what does this all cost? An accurate financial accounting of Olympic expenditures in various cities is very hard to find Firstly - It can be difficult to disentangle spending on Olympic building projects from planned infrastructure improvements that might not be attributable directly to the games – such as the Brisbane Airport getting a second runway Secondly – many of the costs are incurred behind closed doors and never fully disclosed – As an example - Submitting a bid to the IOC to host the Olympics can costs millions of dollars. Cities typically spend $50 million to $100 million in fees for consultants, event organizers, and travel related to hosting duties – as an example - Tokyo lost approximately $150 million on its bid for the 2016 Olympics and spent approximately $75 million on its successful 2020 bid But these costs are private due to reforms taken by the IOC – The people of a city don't get a say as much anymore as to whether they wish to host the Olympics – the public used to in plebiscites but in many cases, people voted to not host the games – so what the IOC has done in response is to introduce a reform, one of which is putting all the bidding behind closed doors. They're sick and tired of being embarrassed by cities dropping out. So, the process is now secretive. What are the Benefits of Hosting the Olympics – There are some major categories of benefits that exist in the short term and long term: the infrastructure and employment in the lead up, benefits of tourist spending during the Games; the long-run benefits or the “Olympic legacy” which might include improvements in infrastructure, foreign investment, or tourism after the Games – but also intangible benefits such as the “feel-good effect” or civic pride Short run benefits – Employment, Infrastructure and revenues and the intangibles Employment and spending in pre-Olympics phase - Any large public works project such as the Olympics can lead to a short-run increase in economic activity in the run-up to the opening – but these are dependent on the level of slack in a region's labour and capital markets (i.e. if there is higher levels of unemployment) – and the GDP figures can be inflated by expansionary fiscal policy (i.e. through government expenditure) Many Government forecasts show that the short-term benefits in revenues are higher than the costs of the games - However - these before-the-Games predictions are rarely matched by reality when economists look back at the data the studies show actual economic impacts that are either near-zero or a fraction of that predicted prior to the event. Nearly all of the analyses follow the same pattern. Researchers collect any type of regional economic data that is readily available such as employment, personal income, GDP, tax collections, or tourism figures, and then analyze the data before, during, and after the Olympics in search of any changes that occur either during the event or in the preparation stages – their findings are that there is no real changes I won't go through all the numbers for each of the games – but there can be an initial increase in employment for jobs whilst the construction is going on – but these drop off soon after these works have been completed – so it is a temporary boost at best But this is only really a benefit when employment conditions are considered ‘sack' – the construction and infrastructure industry within Australia is not hurting for work – from clients I speak to in this sector, this is the busiest they have ever been – if things continue then these jobs won't be new jobs – but a re-allocation of existing jobs – therefore little economic benefits will be created – this has been the case in many of the previous games as well – those working on the construction were already employed – the unemployment numbers didn't reduce – due to desire and skills – if you are someone who is unemployed in the hospitality or business sector, are you going to all of a sudden go out and get qualified in contribution and apply for a role in this sector for a few years whilst things are being built for the games? The answer is likely – no! Also – the economic gains through realised profits are concentrated to the construction, hotels, and hospitality industries – many of these can be international companies – so the money flows out of the nation The major potential benefits comes in the form that any basic infrastructure improvements have the greater potential to continue benefiting the cities into the future – such as transportation benefits – Plus - Whatever the bill in the end is - half of the costs are covered by the Federal government and the rest from the state – So if QLD upgrades roads and transportation, the Federal Government covers half the costs initial revenues during the games – These are broadly classified into Broadcasting rights, tourism, sponsorship, ticketing and licensing sponsors, media, athletes, and spectators typically visit a host city for six months before and six months after the Olympics, which brings in additional revenue – plus the influx of people that come into the country for the games - But who gets this revenue? These are split between the IOC and the host city – television rights have represented nearly half of total revenues of the games, with the IOC sharing around 30% with 70% going to the local Organizing Committees. Revenues from international sponsors are split between the IOC and the Organizing Committees, while ticket revenues, domestic sponsorships, and licensing fees are kept by the host city. There is no doubt that money is made through hosting the games – but the question is whether these revenues make up the money spent on the games – because otherwise the state is left with larger debts to service as well as potentially unused facilities costing further maintenance costs, meaning more debt – and QLD already has pretty large debts Another form of economic boon that is advertised is tourism for the economy at large – but is this level of tourism an increase to the normal levels? Tourism - the “crowding out effect” occurs in relation to cities hosting the Olympics – this is when the crowds and congestion associated with a mega-event dissuades other regular tourists or business travellers from visiting the host region – Every host country has seen a significant drop in tourists in the year that the Olympics are being hosted, nullifying any effects that the influx of people that Olympics may have brought with it – regular tourists avoid the area This can bring up another major failing of standard before-the-fact economic impact analysis in regards to tourism – this is the assumption of the multiplier for expenditures – Someone going to the Olympics may have less of a multiplier than a regular tourist – Costs spent on tickets for travel, accommodation and the games are high – accommodation prices increase as well as travel tickets – leaving less to be spent elsewhere Intangibles - While spending directly associated with the Olympics is typically insufficient to cover the costs of staging the Games, short-run intangible benefits must also be considered. Host cities frequently experience a “feel-good effect” both in the run-up to and in the wake of mega-events Long run benefits - First, the Games might leave a legacy of sporting facilities that can be used by future generations. Second, investments in general infrastructure can provide long-run returns and improve the liveability of host cities. A positive legacy of sporting facilities is the least promising of these claims - due to the nature of the sporting events sponsored by the Olympics, host cities are often left with specialized sports infrastructure that has little use beyond the Games, so that in addition to the initial construction costs, cities may be faced with heavy long-term expenses for the maintenance of “white elephants.” Long run issues – Many of these sites are going to be white elephants - The reason why they didn't exist before the Olympics is because there was no economically viable use for them – so once this Olympics ends, this factor doesn't change - Many of the venues from the Athens Games in 2004 have fallen into disrepair. Beijing's iconic “Bird's Nest” Stadium has rarely been used since 2008 and has been partially converted into apartments. General infrastructure improvements clearly have the potential for better returns if they are implemented well – but there is always the issue of the athletes' villages – in most cases these are converted into another use after the games – I have stayed at the Whistler Olympic Village accommodation as it was converted into a hostel – this has been the case with many Olympic villages, where they are converted into dormitories for universities, hostels or other accommodation sites.   Let's look at the estimates for the Brisbane games and compare this to the previous games – The Brisbane bid documents forecast most of the Games income – these are all in 2032 Dollars – the revenue will come from ticket sales of around $1.2 billion, domestic sponsorship of $1.5 billion, broadcasting rights of around $800m, and the IOC would contribute another $900 million – Including other Revenues the total is estimated to be $4.5bn AUD The bid predicts economic benefits of hosting of around $17 billion nationally, with about $8 billion of that for Queensland – This is a pretty staggering estimate – and is likely using some pretty generous assumptions – remember this is against an estimated cost budget of around $5bn The real issue is the cost estimates - Past Games have shown that the final budget for staging the greatest show on earth is many times more than originally planned- The budget has ballooned to US$15.4 billion, twice its winning bid of US$7.5 billion in 2013. And it could be more – audits by the Japanese government are pinning the figure at more than US$25bn to $30bn – there were additional costs due to the delays, but these are estimated to be around $3bn – the major issue for them is the lack of ticket sales and tourism – leading to one of the biggest losses for hosting the Olympics Is Tokyo a stand out in overspending? Looking at past games – Athens 2004 – Cost estimate of $3bn, spent $16bn, Beijing 2008 Cost estimate of $20bn and spent $45bn (most ever), London 2012 - Cost estimate of $5bn and spent $18bn, Rio 2016 - Cost estimate of $14bn and cost $20bn (smallest blowout) – Tokyo - Cost estimate of $7.5bn then spent at least $25bn Minimum blowout of 42%, maximum of 433% - average of around 2.5 times for these games – Going back to Every Olympics since 1960 has run over budget, at an average of 172% in inflation-adjusted terms Why do we expect the QLD Government to be any different? May see a cost blowout from the original bid to be around the $13bn mark – The one saving grace is that Brisbane's bid, similar to that of the upcoming Paris and Los Angeles Summer Olympics in 2024 and 2028 respectively, will focus on reusing existing venues, refurbishing existing sites and using temporary venues where possible (i.e. ones to be destroyed or removed after the games are done). For south-east Queensland, that means using a lot of the venues established for use hosting the Commonwealth Games in 2018 – also instead of the white elephants of Athens and Rio, the hope is that any venue built will also be used down the track – but this is still only a hope – any newly constructed venue is likely to be underutilised   The Bottom Line Hosting the Olympics tends to result in severe economic deficiencies for cities – there are some exemptions however If a city already has all of the infrastructure to host a games and doesn't need to outlay any capital – then the costs will be negligible compared to the revenues – however, as has been the trend, cities selected have all needed to increased their infrastructure and facilities to host an Olympics Therefore - The economic impact of hosting the Olympics tends to be less positive than anticipated - as most cities have ended up falling massively in debt after hosting the games – and many are left with needless facilities that unless they can be repurposed, end up costing the tax payer on an ongoing basis This begs the question - If the Olympic Games tend to offer only a low chance of providing host cities with positive net benefits, why do cities keep lining up to host these events? First, even if the overall effect of holding the Games is typically negative, large projects will still create winners and losers - most bid to host the games are spearheaded by leaders in the heavy construction and hospitality industries – which are the two sectors of the economy that stood the most to gain from the city hosting the Olympics. Second, economic concerns may only play a small role in a country's decision whether or not to stage the Olympics. The desire to host the Games may be driven by the egos of a country's leaders or as a demonstration of a country's political and economic power. As an example - is difficult to explain Russia's $51 billion expenditure on the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games or China's $45 billion spend in the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics Until you look at these are countries where the government is not accountable to voters or taxpayers, it is quite possible for the government to engage in wasteful spending that enriches a small group of private industrialists or government leaders without repercussions This can also be the case for democratic states that have an disengaged voting base The best situation for a nation the benefit from hosting the games is that the city is a large developed area with a high demand for sports and already existing facilities and accommodation – therefore the costs can be kept to a minimum and the benefits can be in the form of new revenues – If a city is relatively small – such as Brisbane – then the games in the long term can be a total waste Going for the Gold: The Economics of the Olympics - https://pubs.aeaweb.org/doi/pdfplus/10.1257/jep.30.2.201 Thank you for listening to today's episode.

The Tokyo Olympics are drawing to a close, and it's with perhaps less enthusiasm for the event than any Games in recent memory. Viewership is down sharply from the 2016 Games in Rio, and while much of that is no doubt due to the timezone difference as well as the lack of spectators due to the pandemic, there is still a sense among many that the Olympic's future is uncertain. Fewer and fewer cities are actively bidding to host the Olympics, and corruption scandals at the IOC as well as doping controversies have left much of the public cynical about the true purpose of the Games. Jeremy Schaap, who has covered eight Olympics on the ground, examines where the Olympic movement is headed...and reflects on some of his favorite extinct Olympic events from history. Then, former rhythmic gymnastics Junior Olympic gold medalist Katie Nolan shares her memories from the sport she loves.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Freitag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.RKI: Inzidenz steigt früher und schneller als 2020 In Deutschland steigen die Corona-Zahlen früher und schneller als im vorigen Jahr. Das geht aus dem jüngsten Wochenbericht des Robert Koch-Instituts (RKI) hervor. Demnach legt die Sieben-Tage-Inzidenz besonders in den Altersgruppen der 10- bis 34-Jährigen zu. Da schwere Verläufe bei jungen Menschen seltener sind als bei älteren, ist die Auslastung der Intensivbetten durch den Anstieg noch nicht größer geworden. Das RKI ruft alle noch nicht Geimpften dazu auf, sich impfen zu lassen, weil der Großteil der neuen Fälle bei Menschen ohne Impfschutz aufgetreten sei. US-Gesundheitsbehörde warnt vor Hunderttausenden COVID-Neuinfektionen Die Chefin der US-Gesundheitsbehörde CDC hat vor Hunderttausenden Corona-Neuinfektionen pro Tag in den Vereinigten Staaten gewarnt. Wenn allerdings das Land zusammenstehe, Ungeimpfte sich impfen ließen und die Menschen ihre Masken trügen, könne man die Situation binnen weniger Wochen unter Kontrolle bringen, sagte Rochelle Walensky dem Sender CNN. Sie wies darauf hin, falls Geimpfte trotzdem erkrankten, sei der Verlauf in der Regel mild. Allerdings könne die Impfung keine Übertragung des Virus verhindern, erklärte die CDC-Vorsitzende mit Blick auf die besonders ansteckende Delta-Variante. Corona-Pass in Italien obligatorisch In Italien ist der Corona-Gesundheitspass von diesem Freitag an in bestimmten Bereichen obligatorisch. So muss er beim Besuch der Innengastronomie sowie im Kino, Museum oder in Gebäuden gelegenen Sporteinrichtungen vorgezeigt werden. Für Passagiere in öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln und an Universitäten wird er zum 1. September verpflichtend. Die entsprechenden Regelungen verabschiedete das Kabinett in Rom. Das in Italien als "Grüner Pass" bekannte Dokument wird an Menschen ausgegeben, die ihre erste Corona-Impfdosis erhalten haben, von COVID-19 genesen sind oder negativ getestet wurden. Frankreichs Verfassungsrat billigt Impfpflicht im Gesundheitswesen In Frankreich gilt nun eine Corona-Impfpflicht im Gesundheitswesen. Der Verfassungsrat billigte ein Gesetz der Regierung zur Verschärfung der Corona-Auflagen in weiten Teilen. Die Regelungen, gegen die es Massenproteste gegeben hatte, werden am Montag in Kraft treten. Ab dann muss auch ein Gesundheitspass beim Betreten von Restaurants und Cafés, Zügen, Flugzeugen, Fernreisebussen, Gesundheitseinrichtungen, manchen Einkaufszentren, Messen und Jahrmärkten vorgezeigt werden. Das Dokument gibt Aufschluss über eine überstandene Corona-Erkrankung, eine Impfung oder einen Negativ-Test. Tigray-Rebellen erobern UNESCO-Stätte Lalibela TPLF-Kämpfer der äthiopischen Unruheregion Tigray sind in der Nachbarregion Amhara weit vorgerückt. Sie nahmen die zum Weltkulturerbe der Vereinten Nationen gehörende Stadt Lalibela laut Augenzeugen-Berichten kampflos ein. Lalibela ist für ihre aus dem zwölften Jahrhundert in Fels gehauenen Kirchen bekannt. Anwohner schilderten, viele Menschen flüchteten aus der Ortschaft. Die US-Regierung forderte die TPLF-Rebellen auf, das UNESCO-Welterbe zu schützen. In den vergangenen Wochen hatten die Rebellen ihren Vormarsch auf die Nachbarregionen Amhara und Afar ausgeweitet. IOC sanktioniert belarussische Funktionäre Nach den schwerwiegenden Vorwürfen der Leichtathletin Kristina Timanowskaja gegen die eigene Teamleitung hat das Internationale Olympische Komitee (IOC) erste Sanktionen gegen zwei Funktionäre aus Belarus beschlossen. Juri Moisewitsch und Artur Schumak, die von der Disziplinarkommission zu Timanowskajas Entführungsvorwürfen befragt worden waren, haben ihre Akkreditierungen verloren. Sie mussten das Olympische Dorf verlassen, wie das IOC mitteilte. Die Sprinterin Timanowskaja war nach eigenen Angaben von den beiden Trainern unter Druck gesetzt worden. Seit Mittwoch ist sie in Polen.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Dienstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Vermisster belarussischer Aktivist in Kiew tot aufgefunden Der in der Ukraine vermisste belarussische Aktivist Vitali Schischow ist in einem Park der Hauptstadt Kiew erhängt aufgefunden worden. Laut Polizei wurden Ermittlungen auch wegen Mordverdachts aufgenommen. Wie die von Schischkow geleitete Organisation "Belarussisches Haus in der Ukraine" mitteilte, war er am Montag nicht von einer Joggingrunde zurückgekehrt. Die Organisation hilft Belarussen, die vor der Unterdrückung in ihrem Heimatland in die Ukraine geflohen sind. Freunde von Schischow hatten zuvor berichtet, dass er zuletzt beim Joggen von "Fremden" verfolgt worden sei. IOC leitet formale Untersuchung gegen Belarus ein Das Internationale Olympische Komitee hat nach dem Hilferuf der Leichtathletin Kristina Timanowskaja eine formale Untersuchung gegen das Nationale Olympische Komitee von Belarus eingeleitet. Laut einem IOC-Sprecher wird ein Bericht dazu aus Minsk noch an diesem Dienstag erwartet. Timanowskaja behauptet, ihr NOK habe sie zur Rückreise nach Belarus zwingen wollen. Sie erhielt inzwischen in Polens Botschaft in Tokio ein humanitäres Visum. Ministerpräsident Mateusz Morawiecki warf Belarus einen "kriminellen Versuch" vor, eine Sportlerin zu entführen, die kritisch gegenüber dem Minsker Regime eingestellt sei. Zwist nach tödlicher Attacke auf Öltanker Der mutmaßliche Drohnenangriff auf einen Öltanker vor der Küste des Oman sorgt weiterhin für erhebliche internationale Spannungen. Die USA kündigten ein gemeinsames Vorgehen mit Großbritannien, Israel, Rumänien und weiteren Staaten gegen den Iran an, den sie für die Attacke verantwortlich machen. Die Regierung in Teheran wies die Vorwürfe zurück und drohte ihrerseits mit Konsequenzen. Bei dem Angriff auf den von der Firma eines israelischen Unternehmers betriebenen Tankers "Mercer Street" waren am Donnerstag zwei Besatzungsmitglieder getötet worden. Ortega stellt sich erneut zur Wahl Nicaraguas Staatschef Daniel Ortega bewirbt sich bei der Präsidentschaftswahl im November um seine fünfte Amtszeit. Das bestätigte die Partei des 75-Jährigen, die Sandinistische Nationale Befreiungsfront. Ortegas Ehefrau Rosario Murillo kandidiert wieder für den Vizepräsidenten-Posten. Kritiker werfen Ortega vor, über die Jahre einen zunehmend repressiven Regierungsstil entwickelt zu haben. Das konservative Bündnis "Bürger für die Freiheit" stellte unterdessen einen ehemaligen Anführer der Contra-Rebellen, den 78 Jahre alten Oscar Sobalvarro, als Präsidentschaftskandidaten auf. Wuhan testet alle elf Milllionen Einwohner auf Corona Rund ein Jahr nach dem Auftreten der letzten Corona-Infektionen in der zentralchinesischen Stadt Wuhan haben die Behörden Massentests angekündigt. Nach sieben neuen Corona-Fällen sollen demnach alle elf Millionen Bewohner der Stadt rasch auf das Virus getestet werden. Die jüngsten Infektionen seien bei Wanderarbeitern festgestellt worden. Das Coronavirus war im Dezember 2019 weltweit erstmals in Wuhan auf einem Tiermarkt aufgetreten. Derzeit gibt es auch in China immer mehr Ansteckungen mit der Delta-Variante. Bislang wurden mehr als 400 dieser Infektionen gemeldet.

Meanwhile, the South African runner (and two-time gold medalist) Caster Semenya is not competing in the Olympics at all this year, because of a recent ruling by the Court of Arbitration for Sport. So why is one of these athletes allowed to compete while the other is not? And what does that tell us about how the IOC determines sex?

It's been 125 years since the modern Olympics were founded in Athens, and this year will see a monumental first for the world's biggest sporting competition: the inclusion of Laurel Hubbard, a transgender female athlete, in the women's weightlifting competition. In 2015, the IOC issued guidelines that allow transgendered athletes to compete as a woman if their testosterone levels are suppressed to predetermined level prior to competing. Scientific advisers to the IOC argue that hormone therapy is sufficient in creating a level playing field between transgendered athletes and biological females. Trans women, they maintain, who have undergone estrogen therapy, do not possess a material athletic advantage over cisgender women. Critics of the current IOC policy argue that the suppression of testosterone does not mitigate many of the physical advantages gained by those who have gone through puberty as males - such as developing a bigger heart, more lung capacity, longer skeletal structures, etc. Separate sports categories for women and men were created to give female athletes the chance to compete against each other and win on approximately equal terms. Including transgender women in sports competitions like the Olympics is profoundly unfair to cisgender females and denigrates their hard work and sacrifice as elite athletes. Arguing for the motion is Joanna Harper, trans athlete, medical physicist, and adviser to the IOC on matters of gender and sport. Arguing against the motion is Gregory Brown, Professor of Exercise Science at University of Nebraska at Kearney. QUOTES: JOANNA HARPER “We need to be very careful when we make arguments that trans women athletes are displacing other women, because in a sociological sense they are indeed female." GREGORY BROWN “If you're going to compete, you should have a chance to win. Including a trans woman who runs 12% faster than a cisgender woman makes it very difficult for it to be a meaningful competition.” Sources: BBC, RNZ, Good Morning Britain, Fox News, France24 The host of the Munk Debates is Rudyard Griffiths - @rudyardg.   Tweet your comments about this episode to @munkdebate or comment on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/munkdebates/ To sign up for a weekly email reminder for this podcast, send an email to podcast@munkdebates.com.

Highlights:    "US Women's Soccer Team led by the ultra leftwing activist Megan Repinoe suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of the Swedish team in the opening game of the Tokyo Olympics officially ending their 44-game winning streak." “Our Women's Soccer Team decided instead of showing their patriotism and their gratitude to the nation that gave them this amazing opportunity, they decided to deride and mocked and ridicule our nation instead.”“The IOC or the International Olympic Committee has in fact banned podium protests of both the Tokyo Olympics and Beijing Winter Games after ⅔ of the athletes polled said that they believe it was not appropriate to demonstrate or express political views on the victory podium or field of play or at official ceremonies.”“What the real takeaway from all of this, is the sad fact that the epidemic of wokeness really does destroy someone's gratitude and patriotic appreciation necessary for a nation to thrive.""What  the great classical philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre is saying is that without patriotism, without a deep connection to and love for one's own country it's virtually impossible to live a fulfilling moral life."Timestamps:        [01:43] US Women Soccer Team failed to score against Sweden in the opening match of Tokyo Olympics [03:32] Why the US Women Soccer Team has a reputation for being resentful and rude SJWs [05:12] The IOC banning podium protest and how it agitates SJWs like Lebron James [06:37] The great classical philosopher, Alasdair MacIntyre's remarks about the virtues of patriotism[08:37] How the major league soccer players in Texas react to fans booing them when they kneeled during the national anthemResources: Ep. 541 Gwen Berry Completely EMBARASSES Herself!!!Ep. 574 SHOCK POLL!

This summer's Olympics are the fourth for Chicago Tribune reporter Stacy St. Clair. And, it's already like no other games she's covered. After weeks of tests and preparations, Stacy and her colleague, photojournalist Brian Cassella, have each been quarantining in their hotel rooms for three days, and are allowed 15 minutes a day to go outside, get some fresh air, and maybe run to the minimart for coffee. But, only if they can make it back before the security guard's timer goes off. On Wednesday, Tokyo officials reported another spike in COVID numbers, which means reporters and others won't even be allowed that 15 minutes. Athletes are tested daily and some have already had their Olympic dreams slashed because of positive tests. We check in with Stacy to hear more about what to expect from the Chicago-area athletes, how Tokyo citizens are responding to the Games, and how the IOC is handling some of the criticism.  Guest Stacy St. Clair--Chicago Tribune reporter Chicago Tribune Olympics coverage Some Chicago athletes going to the Games Follow us on Twitter: @CityCastChicago Sign up for our newsletter: chicago.citycast.fm

Sugary drink and fast food sponsors have become almost inseparable from sporting superstars and major events like the Olympics. But why are these epitomes of health and exercise aligning themselves with products linked to obesity, heart disease and diabetes? Simon Tulett explores the reasons for this relationship's long history and hears about the damage it could be doing to young, impressionable fans. If this sponsorship is a problem, whose job is it to end it, and can it be done without leaving event organisers, athletes and grassroots sport facing a financial black hole?
