In March Lauber, who has denied any wrongdoing, was sanctioned for disloyalty, lying and breaching his office’s code of conduct. He also had his pay cut for a year after a watchdog group found he repeatedly told falsehoods and broke a prosecutors’ code of conduct. Lauber appealed against that decision, accusing the watchdog of having made several procedural errors, exceeding its powers and “being biased”. FIFA has never denied the meetings between Infantino and Lauber, saying they were intended to show that FIFA was “ready to cooperate with the Swiss justice system.” But the circumstances under which the meetings took place raised the question of potential collusion. read also:FA drag FIFA to court over Chelsea transfer ban If the judicial committee agrees to go ahead with impeachment proceedings, this must be validated by a vote of both Swiss chambers of parliament – the House of Representatives and the Senate – in a joint session. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Lauber ran the Swiss side of operations into the FIFAgate scandal before being accused of bungling the fraud trial over payments linked to the 2006 World Cup in Germany when a five-year statute of limitations to secure convictions against three former powerbrokers of the German Football Association and a Swiss former FIFA number two expired on April 28. Lawmakers now want to know whether Lauber broke rules or was grossly negligent – and whether there was any collusion between Lauber and Infantino. If they not satisfied with his explanations, impeachment proceedings will most likely be opened.

RelatedPosts Akpeyi’s South African club gets new coach South African runner Semenya defiant after court ruling Semenya loses appeal against CAS ruling over testosterone regulations South African middle distance athlete Caster Semenya is aiming to run in the 200 metres at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. By doing so, she will be competing over a distance that will allow her to avoid World Athletics’ regulations limiting her testosterone levels. Semenya is a double Olympic gold medallist in the 800 metres, but as an athlete with differences in sexual development, is bound by regulations. The regulations limit normal levels of testosterone in competitors racing in events ranging from 400m to a mile. “My dream has always been, and will continue to be, to compete at the highest level of sports,” Semenya, 29, said in a statement on Friday. “And so, in order to pursue my goals and dreams, I have decided to change events and compete in the 200 metres. “This decision has not been an easy one. But, as always, I look forward to the challenge and will work hard, doing all I can to qualify for Tokyo and compete to the best of my ability for South Africa.” Semenya had been seen training with sprint start blocks in recent weeks, leading to speculation she would look to reinvent herself over a shorter distance. But she must still earn her place in Tokyo and is some way off the Olympic qualifying time of 22.80. She has a personal best of 24.26 seconds in the 200m set in February 2019. Semenya is appealing to the Swiss Federal Tribunal against a Court of Arbitration for Sport ruling that supported regulations introduced by the sport’s governing body, World Athletics. CAS is based in Lausanne and comes under the jurisdiction of Switzerland’s highest court. A ruling is expected in the first half of this year, which could take her close to the July 24 start of the Olympics. Testosterone increases muscle mass, strength and haemoglobin, which affects endurance. Some competitors have said women such as Semenya, with higher levels of the hormone, have an unfair advantage. Semenya won gold at the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games, but has split opinion in the sport over her refusal to submit to the World Athletics regulations. She has garnered support from many people who see the rules as a human rights violation. Others feel she has an unfair natural advantage that does not produce a level playing field.

Brandon Wu kicked off the 120th U.S. Open with a drive into the right side of the fairway at Winged Foot.That’s considered a great start.Hitting fairways is paramount at Winged Foot. For starters, it’s tough to advance the ball very far. But the greens are severe, and the bunkers are as much as 8 feet deep. That explains why only two players out of 750 who have started the previous five U.S. Opens at Winged Foot finished under par.Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy will get an early start Thursday, though they begin on opposite ends of the West Course. The opening round began with cloud cover. The rest of the week is expected to feature plenty of sunshine and mild weather, unusual for a U.S. Open.Then again, it’s been 113 years since the U.S. Open was played in September. It was moved from its traditional June spot in the calendar when golf shut down for three months in America because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Latest: After 2 holes, Spieth in trouble at US Open He first made bogey from the fairway when his shot rolled down to the bottom of the green and he three putted. And then it got worse.Tiger Woods, Justin Thomas and Collin Morikawa were waiting on the second tee when Spieth in the group ahead arrived in a golf cart. His tee shot got caught in a tree and he had to return to the tee to play his third. He wound up with a double bogey and was 3 over after two holes.Spieth has not won in three years.

Sophomore midfielder Erica Bodt has been easy to spot during Syracuse’s current four-game winning streak. And it’s not just the sleek new black hair color that she debuted against Florida on March 15.The sophomore has tallied six goals during the No. 3 Orange’s (10-1, 3-1 Atlantic Coast) quartet of recent victories, helping bolster an already explosive attack. She’ll look to pile up a few more when Syracuse charges into battle against No. 18 Albany (9-0, 1-0 America East) at the Carrier Dome on Tuesday at 6 p.m.After starting 2014 with only three goals through SU’s first seven games, Bodt has now bumped her season total up to nine and sits only a pair shy of her freshman mark.“I’m definitely more confident, which has helped a lot,” Bodt said. “The opportunity has just come the past few games that I’ve had a chance to take it to goal, which is really nice.”Much of that confidence stems from the hard work she put in before stepping on campus.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBodt dreamed of playing in the Carrier Dome since her days in middle school. Two of her youth coaches attended Syracuse, so she grew up idolizing the team and made it a personal goal to eventually suit up for the Orange.But she found her dream in jeopardy when she suffered a stress fracture during her sophomore year at John Carroll School in Bel Air, Md. All of a sudden, her usual routine on the soccer and lacrosse field was replaced with rest and rehabilitation. “It definitely shook me a little bit,” Bodt said. “I had to reflect on it a lot.”It also motivated her to come back stronger than ever — and she did. Bodt scored 55 goals her senior season, and was named a 2012 Under Armour All-American. The offer to play at Syracuse became a reality, and she jumped on it.Orange head coach Gary Gait knew Bodt was a potential superstar, but she struggled to trust herself as a freshman. That’s starting to change this season and the results are showing up in the box score.“She’s got all the talent,” Gait said. “Speed, athleticism, a great stick. She just needs to build on her confidence level and I think scoring the last few games helps.”Bodt now adds another dimension to an already dangerous midfield. With two seniors and a junior routinely in the starting lineup, the position is one of the team’s biggest strengths, said fellow middie Katie Webster. But it will be more of a question mark next year after graduation takes four seniors and a lot of veteran leadership from SU’s midfield depth. Based on Bodt’s work ethic in practice and passion for lacrosse, though, Webster is confident the sophomore can help fill those voids.“Having her as a middie out there with us, I know that she’s going to do great things in the next couple years,” Webster said.For now, Bodt is only focused on the season at hand. With six games left on the schedule and tournament play looming, she’ll have plenty of chances to show off her new look and confidence.“I made the right decision and I’m really glad that I’m here,” Bodt said. “It’s really exciting to be part of such a great program and atmosphere. It’s just awesome.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 31, 2014 at 10:23 pm Contact Tyler: firstname.lastname@example.org
The first day of game week is under way for USC football, and head coach Steve Sarkisian has released both his depth chart and his play-calling responsibilities.Sarkisian handed off the reins of the offense to offensive coordinator Clay Helton.“I can still be involved with the play calling,” Sarkisian said in his weekly USC Athletics video. “Clay Helton has got such a good hold of our offense right now, that I’m confident he can do that.”Sarkisian also expressed that not being in charge of play-calling will free his time to work on other things with the team.“It frees me up to be with the defense more, work with special teams,” Sarkisian said. “And to be, in my opinion, more of a complete head coach.”Sarkisian surprised no one by naming Cody Kessler the starting quarterback and was full of only the highest praise for the redshirt senior.“One thing I appreciate about Cody is that he’s a gym rat, he’s a blue-collar guy,” Sarkisian said of the USC standout quarterback. “He’s never satisfied with where he is at.”Unlike many previous USC quarterbacks, Kessler was not a highly ranked recruit. Sarkisian attributes his work ethic and dedication as the factors that led him to where he is now.Behind Kessler at the helm of the offense is redshirt sophomore Max Browne. Freshman Sam Darnold is the third-string quarterback.Sophomore standout Adoree’ Jackson is the listed starter in three positions as well as being slotted second as a wide receiver. Jackson is the starting corner back, punt returner and kickoff returner.“The hard part with Adoree’ is you want to give him a lot, but you don’t want to give him too much,” Sarkisian said. “You’re maybe going to even see him in the backfield some.”“The reason we’re able to do all this with him is he’s got an extremely high football IQ and his work ethic is amazing,” Sarkisian said.The other wide receivers who will be working alongside Jackson are junior Darreus Rogers, redshirt sophomore Steven Mitchell Jr. and sophomore JuJu Smith-Schuster.Smith-Schuster will work with Jackson as a kickoff return man.Also on the offensive side of the ball is a very deep line that will start with senior Max Tuerk. Around him will be redshirt junior Zach Banner at right tackle and Toa Lobendahn or sophomore Viane Talamaivao at right guard. On the left side of the line, either redshirt junior Chad Wheeler or Lobendahn will start at left tackle. Sophomore Damien Mama will fill the left tackle position.The only freshmen slotted to be potential starters for the offense this season are tailbacks Dominic Davis and Ronald Jones II. They are listed in addition to redshirt senior Tre Madden. Junior Justin Davis is questionable due to injury.Stepping into the big shoes at defensive end that Leonard Williams left will be redshirt senior Greg Townsend Jr. Freshmen Rasheem Green and Christian Rector will also likely see playing time.Junior captain Su’a Cravens is listed as the starting outside linebacker. Fellow senior captain Antwaun Woods has been listed as the starting nose tackle.

Linebacker Su’a Cravens was among four Trojans chosen in the 2016 NFL Draft. – Ralf Cheung | Daily TrojanFour Trojans were drafted and seven more signed as undrafted free agents in another busy NFL Draft for the football team.The draft took place in Chicago and spanned three days — Thursday through Saturday.Linebacker Su’a Cravens topped the list of USC entries into the NFL, drafted 53rd overall by the Washington Redskins in the second round. Cravens, one of the Trojans’ most reliable and versatile defensive players as a hybrid safety-linebacker, leaves a big hole on the defensive line.Thirteen picks later, center Max Tuerk was selected by the San Diego Chargers 66th overall in the third round. Tuerk, who started since his freshman year at USC, missed the last nine games last season with a torn ACL.Quarterback Cody Kessler also went in third round 93rd overall to the Cleveland Browns, a much higher selection than expected. Kessler may see playing time in Cleveland at some point down the line and will look to aid a franchise with well-documented struggles at the quarterback position.Cornerback Kevon Seymour wrapped up the Trojans’ draftees, having to wait until the sixth round to hear his name called. Seymour will join the Buffalo Bills, who picked him 218th overall.Developments did not stop there, however, as seven Trojans — as of Saturday night — have signed with NFL teams as undrafted free agents: fullback Soma Vainuka to the Houston Texans, running back Tre Madden to the Seattle Seahawks, defensive lineman Antwaun Woods to the Tennessee Titans, defensive lineman Claude Pelon to the New York Jets, defensive lineman Delvon Simmons and linebacker Anthony Sarao to the Indianapolis Colts and defensive lineman Greg Townsend to the Oakland Raiders.With four draftees, the Trojans remain on top of the NCAA with most all-time NFL draft picks (496), three more than Notre Dame (493).
