German number one player Louisa Lippmann attracts attention for her talent and attracts all eyes thanks to her beautiful look like a doll.
Lippmann is one of the top players in the world right now. The beauty was born in 1994, possesses a height of 1.91 m, with an attack power of up to 3.19 m. She always stands out on the field because she is the leading scorer, with a beautiful face, white skin and high nose bridge.
She played professional volleyball at the age of 16. In 2013, Lippmann started playing for the national team at the age of 19. A year later, she joined Germany to win a gold medal at the Montreux international tournament.
In 2016, Lippman joined the Schwerin army, which is led by a national coach. She has more time to perfect herself, and with her new team that won 2 championships in Germany, became the highest transferable batter and was voted “German Volleyball Player of 2017. “
Lippmann always shows dynamism and harmony on the field. However, she admitted to the completely opposite personality before: “I was impatient with my progress. I quickly became stubborn and disappointed, “the 25-year-old girl shared with Welt.
Under the direction of the new coach, Lippman improved rapidly. Since 2017, she has become the mainstay of the German national team when competing in international tournaments. At the 2018 World Championship, Lippmann and his teammates shocked Brazil with a score of 3-2, in which the beauty wearing the number 11 shirt scored 36 points.
Leaving a great mark in the world’s top league, Lippmann received many attractive invitations from famous teams. She joined Italy’s Bisonte for the 2018/19 season, before joining Shanghai for the finals of the Chinese National Championship for the 2019/20 season.

At the Il Lombardia 2020- a famous sport competition in Italy, Belgian driver Remco Evenepoel unexpectedly crashed from a bridge down a ravine, causing him to break his pelvis and crush his lungs.
At the time of the accident, the 20-year-old man was fourth in the lead as he plunged and cornered on the Muro di Sormano Pass. Due to his inability to master the speed, Evenepoel’s bicycle crashed directly into the bridge wall, causing him to fly off the bridge and fall into the ravine below, approximately 10 m from the bridge surface. Luckily, the medical staff were on time to give Evenepoel first aid before the ambulance took him to the hospital. Reports said: “Evenepoel was forced off the track at the last 50 km after a terrible accident that sent him down a canyon. When medical personnel come to check for injury, Evenepoel remains alert.
Unfortunately, the X-ray results showed Evenepoel’s pelvic bone fracture and right pulmonary effusion, which will leave him sidelined in the near future. Evenepoel will continue to be monitored at the hospital before being transferred to Belgium next Sunday. Evenepoel’s serious injury is also the second most serious accident that the Deceuninck-Quick-Step team has recently encountered. Before that, driver Tim Declercq also suffered serious injuries in France due to the effects of hail.
During the race in Poland last week, fans of cycling also witnessed another terrible accident. A sprint in the last meters caused driver Fabio Jakobsen to fall into the roadside barrier. The Dutch driver had to resort to plastic surgery to treat his facial injuries.
Victory over Napoli brought Barcelona to the quarterfinals of the Champions League, but it was still the match Messi played so great. When this “source of oxygen” is no longer available, Barcelona can stand? There is a ball in the match between Barcelona and Napoli that people will talk about a lot in the years to come. That was the moment when Messi was alone, passing the ball through a Napoli player forest, even El Pulga almost fell. However, the Argentine striker still shot the ball through the extremely narrow gap between the two Napoli defenders and scored a beautiful goal.
That moment is the best testament to the talent and class of genius Messi. Many views say that perhaps, apart from Messi, no one can create such a top ball. However, not stopping there, at the end of the first half, Messi quickly cut off from behind to steal the ball Kalidou Koulibaly. Then the ball-up phase of the Senegal midfielder (the top Serie A midfielder over the years) became a foul. Other statistics also indicate the excellence of the Argentine “superstar”. In the match, Messi touched the ball 71 times (no less than the central midfielders), successfully dribbled 7 times, fouled 5 times (the most on the field). Obviously, Barcelona overcame a nasty rival from Italy but again, that victory was a place to honor Messi. Barcelona’s dependence on El Pulga is getting bigger, especially in important matches. Let’s see where two satellites next to Messi, Luis Suarez and Griezmann, were in the victory over Napoli. Luis Suarez’s biggest contribution was just a goal on the penalty spot when Messi was hurting in the attack. Left, the Uruguayan star was almost lost during the match. Luis Suarez’s passing rate is only 69%, the number is quite bad for the attacking star.
Griezmann was even worse. Although more touching and passing than in previous matches, it was almost harmless. The Frenchman did not even hit the opponent’s goal with any shot. Meanwhile, Barcelona’s midfield is playing around the shoulder. In this match, the ball control rate of the Catalan team was only 51%. That number is too strange for a controlling team like Barcelona. It feels like Messi is like an “oxygen source” that feeds Barcelona. And if that “source of oxygen” stops working, the whole body of the “giant” will collapse. The situation has happened no less than once this season, especially in the post-epidemic period. It has a reason for Barcelona to keep dropping points. Most of them are matches where Messi has been blocked too closely. Remember, Napoli is not a strong opponent. They only finished seventh in Serie A this season, scoring 61 goals and conceding 50 goals. This is one of the clubs to concede the most in the top 10 of Serie A. So, it is not too strange for Barcelona to defeat Napoli at the Nou Camp.
In UFC, the referee’s decision has a significant influence on the matches that take place in all 5 innings. Sometimes, the boxers’ competition is inversely proportional to the referee’s score.
Alexander Volkanovski (left) and Max Holloway (UFC 251, 11/7). The game caused fans to debate, after the referee decided the winner was Volkanovski. Holloway knocked the opponent down twice in the first half and started leading the score. American boxers have more shots on target than Volkanovski after 3 rounds, respectively 31-20, 34-26, 25-22. Holloway repeatedly kicks the correct kick on the opponent’s head, but the total score after 5 rounds and the aggressive fighting style of Volkanovski help him win the final.
St. Georges St. Pierre (left) and Johny Hendricks (UFC 167, 2013). Most fans think that Hendricks must be the winner and own the middleweight title. According to the statistics after the match, the former Canadian boxer is only higher than the opponent in the number of strong impact attacks (45.7% compared to 43.8%). While Hendricks had a higher number of hits (56.3% compared to 51%), the knockout rate was equal to St. Pierre, and once made the opponent surrender. Hendricks no longer had a chance to rematch when St. Pierre retired.
Quinton Jackson (left) and Lyoto Machida (UFC 123, 2010). Jackson himself was surprised to win against the Brazilian opponent. According to the statistics after the match, Machida has a higher number of hits and hits than the opponent. He also once fell down with Jackson. Although Machida outperformed Jackson, President Dana White agreed with the referee’s decision and refused to hold a rematch.
Carlos Condit (left) and Nick Diaz (UFC 143, 2012). Fans argue a lot when Diaz was not given a temporary semi-middle championship title after his defeat to Condit. According to statistics, Condit has higher number of hits and hits than Americans, but not too big difference (48.3% compared to 45.3% and 47.2% compared to 42.7 %). However, Diaz once knocked Condit to the floor. Most believe that Diaz has a higher attack speed than his opponent. President White said it was Condit’s clever counter-attack tactic.
Michael Bisping (left) and Matt Hamill (UFC 75, 2007). The legendary Bisping is said to be lucky to be recognized as a victory over Hamill. Match statistics show the inconsistency of the referee, Hamill has a higher rate than the opponent in the number of hits, the number of strong impact, and the number of falls. Even American boxers injured Bisping and bloodshed right from the first half. He had 6 times to knock down opponents. After the match, Bisping’s best friend also said that the 41-year-old former star was the loser.
With the American professional basketball tournament coming back, join us to learn the most outstanding NBA names in terms of scoring ability.
James Harden The nickname “Magic Handball” is the most accurate description of James Harden this season. With over 2000 points scored for Houston Rockets, Harden simply cannot be stopped.
In the 2019/20 season, the Houston star played a total of 61 matches, owning a PPG performance of up to 34.4. Can be noticed, Harden will bring difficulties to any opponent he faces. Imagine you have a player who scores 35 points per game, which is an impressive number. That makes James Harden one of the NBA’s most worth watching players.
Bradley Beal Like James Harden, Bradley Beal also possesses the ability to score an average of more than 30 points per game. Specifically, the PPG of the American footballer is 30.5, after 47 matches last season. Beal is currently at the Washington Wizards, and it is fair to say that this is not a team for the handler who has scored 1700 points. Even with the second-best PPG player in the NBA, the Wizards have only reached the top 10 this season. Therefore, the 27-year-old star is expected to move to a stronger team in the near future.
Trae Young The last star to appear on this list is Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks. With 1778 points scored, the 21-year-old talent is the second-highest scorer of the NBA this season. Young also owns an impressive PPG of 29.6, close to Harden and Beal.
The Hawks star has had explosive performances throughout the season. Most impressively, Young scored 50 points in the match against the Miami Heat in February. That shows Young is the star model that can create magical moments on the football field.

One in 17,000 people in the UK has albinism. Unfortunately, Kelly Gallagher belongs to the minority group suffering from this evil disease. But not because of tired feet and fading eyes over the years that Northern Ireland skiers gave up. She is even part of the history of this country’s sport.
Overcome fate Gallagher, 35, is a congenital albino patient from birth. Gallagher’s hair and skin are white, and his eyesight is only 1/10 and tends to decrease over the years. Basically, Gallagher can’t literally open his eyes. When going to school, she was assigned a seat next to … the teacher to look at the board. Gallagher’s brain also could not develop normally, because the only way she could clearly see was that the opposite object had to be cubed and covered with paint in opposite colors. Otherwise, Gallagher will see everything in white and black. In Gallagher’s era, information about albinism was very limited. On the university campus, Gallagher has repeatedly expressed an attitude because teachers and administrators are unable to provide an appropriate method to help a “special” student like her.
To enhance eyesight, Gallagher must strictly follow the instructions of the doctor, using different types of eyeglasses, constantly applying cream and wearing sunscreen to control the growth of albino cells. in person. Sometimes, his evil classmates also mock Gallagher as a “vampire”, referring to those who will not be able to live normally under the sun. But Gallagher and his family have been preparing for this harsh reality for a long time. Together, they help the girl with basic knowledge and always remind Gallagher to say, “I’m normal like everyone else”. As a child, Gallagher exercised by cycling and rollerblading. Gallagher’s hobby of playing toys was also formed through the barbie dolls her father bought. Oddly, Gallagher dolls are often made of hard plastic, not flexible like other common types. At 17, Gallagher went on holiday with his family in Andorra. It was her first time seeing snow-capped peaks. Then Gallagher recalled images of dolls that could neither move nor bend their limbs. And Gallagher suddenly thought, I belong to the peaks, can freely fly, flailing.
Peaked At that moment, Gallagher knew he wanted to be a skier. At the top of the mountain peaks are gray clouds and the bottom is a deep abyss, ordinary people just wish for a helicopter to rescue. And Gallagher, the only thing that inspires the instinct inside is to rush down to the top of the summit at a speed of 120 km / h. For many consecutive years, Gallagher consistently followed Charlotte Evans, a famous guide in the Paralympic Games. In 2010, Gallagher was the first disabled athlete of Northern Ireland sports to win a medal at a sports event (Vancouver Games). 4 years later, she became the first disabled athlete of the entire British Commonwealth territory to win gold at a Winter Paralympic Games (Sochi 2014). “Sometimes when I’m sitting in the airport lobby, I get a bit of complacent thoughts. It’s like I’m the best skier in the world, with a faster pace than a car on the highway. Of course, I don’t mean anything, but for someone not as good as me, it is a doping dose to live and live well, ”Gallagher told SI. That year, Gallagher was awarded the British Imperial Medal (MBE), on a very special occasion. As usual, MBE is only awarded twice a year, on New Year, and the Queen’s birthday. But at the time, Gallagher was accompanied as head of state, meeting the Queen of England alone and becoming an everlasting part of British sports history. “I also want to be like Serena Williams, like other top female athletes in the world, to be able to speak freely and assert myself. But to me, it exceeded both dreams and expectations, ”Gallagher said.
