Kelly Gallagher, ‘vampire’ challenges the height

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.

Kelly Gallagher, 'ma cà rồng' thách thức độ cao

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.

Injury, defeat and unsportsmanlike behavior engulf Arsenal

Brighton’s defeat on the field caused Arsenal to lose a lot of things, from the score to the pillar of injury and finally unsportsmanlike behavior, badly affecting the image of the young midfielder Matteo Guendouzi’s team.

Chấn thương, bại trận và hành vi phi thể thao nhấn chìm Arsenal

Arsenal entered Brighton’s game with great determination in the battle to win tickets to the European Cup next season. However, the Gunners’ ambition was pouring a cold water in the 37th minute. Goal number 1, Bernd Leno was seriously injured after a collision with Neal Maupay of Brighton and could not continue playing.
In a controversial situation leading to Leno’s injury, striker Maupay plunged into the away team’s goalkeeper when he caught the ball and had a tight hand-pull phase. It was this that led to Leno losing his balance, having to land on the ground passively damaging his neck and right knee.

Tình huống Maupay khiến Leno chấn thương

Maupay was also the player who made Arsenal fans remember last night. The 23-year-old striker was also the one who launched the “punch” in the 90 + 5 minute with a very good coordination situation with Aaron Connolly, thereby helping Brighton beat Arsenal with a score of 2-1.

And yet, after the game ended, Maupay was also mentioned in a messy situation. As the Frenchman celebrated his victory and on his way to the dressing room, he collided with fellow Arsenal midfielder Guendouzi.
Unable to remain calm when the home team lost in bitter defeat, Guendouzi rushed to strangle Maupay. Fortunately, everything was quickly extinguished, when the players on both sides could control the hotheads of two young French players.

Back after the Covid-19 pandemic, Arsenal are living in difficult days with 2 consecutive losses. Not to mention, the problem of injury is also causing coach Mikel Arteta headache. Midfielder Pablo Mari finished the season, midfielder Granit Xhaka was waiting for the results of the injury test, and last night, goalkeeper No. 1, Leno left the AMEX field with the help of two crutches and his knees were fixed tightly. Any trouble may not be over, because, with his unsportsmanlike behavior, midfielder Guendouzi is facing a penalty from the English Football Federation.

On the current standings, Arsenal have been pushed down to 10th place with 40 points, less than the fifth position by 6 points. This is not a big gap, but with what has been going on, the Gunners do not really have many opportunities to squeeze into the group to attend the European Cup next season.

How safe the Caddy PGA Tour works

“Keeping distance, only doing things agreed” is the principle of the caddy at Charles Schwab Challenge – PGA Tour event kicked off today.
At the 10-yard Colonial tee court on June 10, experienced caddie Mike “Fluff” Cowan stood far away from colleagues and golfer with his team during the pitch test. Some of them are closer to each other because they want to return to the previous intimacy. Particularly Cowan adheres to a minimum distance of 1.8 meters according to the standard “social spacing” or equivalent “length of two sticks” as the warning signs are scattered throughout the yard.
The tee hole in hole 10 does not have much space because one side is blocked by brick walls and the other side is the asphalt road for trams. But with Cowan, it is not difficult to implement “self-defense and protection of people around”.
“Fluff, social spacing,” said caddie Mike Greller of young star Jordan Spieth. “I’m trying,” Cowan replied.

It will be a common sight when the PGA Tour re-competes in a new environment with many frameworks and regulations. This week on the Colonial yard, the interaction between golfer-caddy is no longer close. They cannot stand next to each other, whispering tactics, choosing the direction of the stroke, detecting how to read the distance, tossing balls or sticks to each other, high-fiving …

Johnson gives 'new' caddie a try


Caddy professional not only carrying sticks but also professional consultants and even psychologists. But the PGA Tour is asking caddies to change the way they work, to ensure a distance, to agree with the golfer about “who touches what” when playing. In addition, they were also given gift bags by the Organizing Committee, which is perhaps the weirdest in the career process to date. It is comfortable to use three packs of disinfectant towels, each containing 10 pieces to clean “essential labor tools”.
But will they follow suit? The organizing committee has no sanctions. “Is there a penalty for a stroke” a caddy asked. The problem of keeping distance does not mention punishment.
The new setting was completely unfamiliar to many caddies, including John Curtis, Dylan Frittelli’s assistant. On the morning of June 10, the PGA Tour sent a message to remind caddies and golfers to practice social spacing, avoid physical contact, wipe off flag craters, craters, sand traps, and even clubs. As for the high-fiving, it is not recommended. And since leaving South Africa to return to work in Colonial, Curtis has become reluctant to relax. “I haven’t touched the flag all week. Frittelli wants to leave it in the hole when putting and it’s okay,” Curtis said

Habits are often difficult to give up and caddy will have to forget quite a few familiar things. This ability can occur in the famous golfer – caddy pair. Bryson DeChambeau – Tim Tucker must decide who takes the stick. Between Webb Simpson and Paul Tesori, who will clean the ball, or peel off the box to get a new ball. Who will turn to a book to read the whole distance specifications, Rory McIlroy or Harry Diamond when they put their heads together to do so? Will Brooks Koepka and Rickey Elliot discuss how to celebrate the victory, including waving or bowing or texting each other?
According to the Golf Digest, the Colonial round has a caddy that adheres perfectly to social spacing. It was Todd Montoya – assistant of Brian Stuard. Montoya wore a mask and did not allow anyone to come near. When Stuard needed a cane, Montoya simply set the bag on the pitch and moved away. This serious Caddy refused to discuss or explain how he and Stuard worked.

Boxer was assigned to assassinate Hitler (Part 1)

Igor Myklashevsky is a Soviet boxer, once recognized by the world champion Max Schmeling for talent. However, the name Myklashevsky was named in history entirely not because of the victories on the ring, but because he was assigned by NKVD (the predecessor agency of the KGB) to assassinate Adolf Hitler.
The assassination plan was well prepared so that the German counterintelligence had no doubts at all. But at the last moment, Moscow ordered the cancellation of the plan. Let’s find out why a promising Soviet athlete became a super agent of NKVD …
Important goal
For both the Soviet intelligence agencies and the German Secret Service during World War II there was always a permanent mission – to destroy the leader of the enemy country. Although the opinions of historians have so far been inconsistent, it is almost certain that each side will suffer the damage caused by this effort.

In 1943, the German Secret Service drafted a plan to assassinate the leader of Stalin, more accurately, at the same time killing all heads of allies in the Allies (that is, both British Prime Minister Churchill and US President). Roosevelt) during the Summit in Tehran. The commander of this campaign was Otto Scorzeny, famous for his successful rescue of fascist dictator Benito Mussolini of Italy.
But the plot was discovered and stopped by Soviet intelligence. The second attempt was also broken down by Moscow in time to capture the reactionary Piotr Szylo, who was about to assassinate the Soviet leader with a grenade launcher in 1944.

As for Soviet intelligence, the plan to destroy Hitler had been considered since 1938. Hitler was often present at a beer pub, so he planned to bomb the site. Stalin rejected the proposal at that time, especially after the Soviet-German peace treaty was signed in 1939, and the plan was officially rejected.

3 most common injuries in basketball

Basketball is one of the sports that has a lot of bumps. In parallel with the pleasure of scoring or winning is a dark side with injuries and risks affecting daily life.

Injury in basketball has many types, can come from a variety of collisions and therefore, the severity is also very different.

This article will summarize the 5 most common injuries in basketball based on statistics from the National Athletic Trainers’ Association.

Injuries will be sorted by popularity and body part, along with prevention or measures to limit the likelihood of injury during competition.

1. Injury of the ankles and feet

Injury to the lower limb area is most likely to occur based on many statistics done in basketball history, especially in the lower limb group, ankles and feet.

Whether it’s flipping your ankles to the ground, flipping due to side forces or accidentally stepping on someone else’s feet, basketball often makes players vulnerable to injury in this area.

Particularly for foot injuries, the severity will be quite complicated because of the bone structure in this area. So if the pain persists, you need to go immediately to a medical facility or an orthopedic hospital for a scan and get the best results.

In order to minimize ankle and foot injuries, the person in need of support needs extra support. The most basic thing a baller can wear is a pair of standard shoes.

Basketball shoes often have very good support for the ankles. Particularly for the low-neck shoes, the design team will compensate by increasing the balance (adding anti-roll edges in the buffer, reinforcing upper on the sides of the feet …).

3. Injury to the hip and thigh

Speeding, jumping, turning or turning are activities that put a lot of pressure on a player’s legs and thighs, leaving them facing the possibility of injury.

In the thigh area, the quadriceps muscle is strong and strong. But injuries that occur in this area will take a long time to recover completely. In the back of the thigh, the hamstring is a commonly injured part, typically from the NBA is Chris Paul.

In the groin and hip areas, a torn or stretched hip muscle can also occur if the player is subjected to a high impact when competing or landing in an uncomfortable position.

Collisions are inevitable and cannot be prevented. But the best way for the body to withstand a collision is to improve overall strength and especially to warm up before training or competition. In addition, booting the hip is also extremely important but often overlooked by players.

The more hot and flexible the tendons, muscles, ligaments are, and the player will limit the ability to stretch these groups, leading to injuries.

3. Knee injury

Serious injuries such as stretching / tearing / ligament rupture are not so common in basketball compared to other collision sports. But this is still the 3rd most common type of injury in basketball.

Improving the strength of the leg muscles will help increase the ability to support the knee. Note that improving strength doesn’t mean “stuffing” a lot of weight into these muscle groups. Instead, players should balance the power up with exercises to increase flexibility.

In addition, starting well before practicing basketball or competition will also help reduce the likelihood of injury. If a player has had a knee injury, consider using support accessories such as knee pads or KT tapes.
