French Investigation Exposes Sexual Abuse by Over 20 Skating Coaches
08/04/2020 1:58pm

More than 20 coaches working with the French ice skating federation or its clubs have been identified following an investigation into accusations of sexual assault, harassment or violence, the French ministry of sports said on Tuesday.The fact-finding probe was launched in February at the request of the sports ministry after 10-time French champion Sarah Abitbol said in a book she was raped by skating coach Gilles Beyer from 1990-92, when she was a teen. Her revelations led to the resignation of the long-serving head of Frances skating federation, Didier Gailhaguet, who denied protecting the coach. Gailhaguet is also a member of the French National Olympic and Sports Committees Board of Directors and is facing pressure to resign for the post. He told the 40 members of the board in a May email obtained by the Agency France-Presse that he will not resign, and to those who would call for my resignation, I simply ask for a little decency. In the wake of Abitbols accusations, more skaters spoke out to denounce alleged sexual violence from coaches over a 30-year period.After conducting hearings and analyzing athletes testimonies on a dedicated platform set up by the ministry, the probe found out 12 coaches have been accused of harassment or sexual assault, including three who were sentenced to prison terms. In addition, seven cases of physical or verbal violence were reported, while two other cases related to trainers who died before the end of judicial proceedings.The volume of cases identified is indicative of practices and behaviours that have been replicated through generations of coaches, the ministry said. It is unparalleled internationally. The investigation also pointed out a real alcohol problem among some skating coaches.Paris prosecutors opened a criminal investigation after Abitbol accused Beyer. According to the sports ministry, one coach was placed in detention in February while five others were banned in April from coaching. All of the administrative investigations that had stopped because of the coronavirus lockdown in France have resumed. The Associated Press does not normally name sexual assault victims but Abitbol accused Beyer in a book published last week and has also spoken about her personal experience on television.

Anthony Davis had 42 points and 12 rebounds, and the Los Angeles Lakers clinched the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference playoffs by beating the Utah Jazz 116-108 on Monday night.The Lakers 51-15 own a six-game lead over the second-place Los Angeles Clippers and have five seeding games let before starting their first playoff run since 2013. Utah 42-25 has clinched a playoff berth and is fifth in the West, a half-game behind Houston and a half-game ahead of Oklahoma City.Davis final basket resulted in a 4-point play with 42 seconds left, as he sank a 3-pointer while getting fouled by Rudy Gobert and made the ensuing free throw to give the Lakers a 114-104 lead.Utahs Donovan Mitchell answered with a 4-point play of his own that cut the margin to 114-106 with 36 seconds remaining, but the Jazz couldnt get any closer.

Angels' Shohei Ohtani Strains Arm, Won't Throw for 4-6 Weeks
08/04/2020 3:12am

Shohei Ohtani has a right forearm strain that will prevent the Los Angeles Angels two-way star from throwing for at least four to six weeks, possibly ending his season as a pitcher after just two starts.Angels general manager Billy Eppler announced Monday that Ohtani has a grade 1-2 strain of the flexor pronator mass a collection of muscles and tendons in the forearm near the elbow.The right-hander reported discomfort in his arm Sunday after he issued five walks and got only five outs in a rough 50-pitch start against Houston.Ohtani is traveling with the Angels to Seattle, where they open a six-game road trip Tuesday night. The Angels also use Ohtani as their primary designated hitter between his mound starts, and he is day-to-day as a hitter, the team said.But Ohtani is unlikely to begin a throwing program for at least a month, which means he might not have time to build himself back up to game strength before the 60-game major league season ends in late September.The injury is the latest stateside setback for the 26-year-old Ohtani, who left Japan in late 2017 with a determination to become the majors first regular two-way player in decades.While he has been a solid designated hitter for the Angels, Ohtani pitched in only 10 games during his AL Rookie of the Year campaign before requiring Tommy John surgery in late 2018, and he didnt make it through the second inning in either of his starts after returning to the mound this season.Ohtani appeared to be near full strength heading into this virus-shortened campaign after months of diligent rehabilitation, but his first two pitching performances were dismaying, even if an injury casts them in a softer light. Ohtani has walked eight of the 16 batters he has faced while getting just five outs and giving up seven runs.Ohtani failed to get any outs against six batters in his season debut at Oakland on July 26. His fastball velocity also failed to reach its pre-injury peak, which was sometimes 99 mph. Ohtani said afterward he was reluctant to throw at his full velocity, but believed he would be capable with time.When he returned to the mound Sunday in Anaheim for his first home start since June 2018, he began with a superb eight-pitch first inning in which his fastball hit 97 mph.Everything fell apart in a 42-pitch second inning. Ohtani walked his first three batters and struck out his next two, but issued two bases-loaded walks before getting pulled. Ohtanis fastball velocity dropped to 89 mph against his final batter, George Springer, although Angels manager Joe Maddon thought fatigue was the culprit.I saw some positive signs, said Maddon, who apparently wasnt aware of Ohtanis impending MRI when he spoke after the Angels 6-5, 11-inning loss. The velocity was much better. The slider was much better. It just seemed he tried to hit the edges too much, but he threw the ball much better.Ohtanis injury puts even more stress on the last-place Angels, who have stumbled to a 3-7 start with a string of terrible pitching performances. Three-time AL MVP Mike Trout is expected to rejoin the team Tuesday along with the Angels top prospect, outfielder Jo Adell.Ohtani is just 4 for 27 at the plate this season, but he showed encouraging signs last week when he homered on consecutive days, connecting on both a 99-mph fastball and an 80-mph curve that nearly hit the ground.Ohtani is still working to recapture the magic of his first few months in the majors, when he seemed capable of redefining whats possible in baseball. He went 4-2 with a 3.31 ERA and 63 strikeouts during 10 largely successful starts, and he batted .285 with 22 homers as a designated hitter.But Ohtanis rookie pitching season was interrupted when he sprained a ligament in his right elbow in June, allowing him to make just one more start before Tommy John surgery in October. He spent 2019 solely as the Angels designated hitter while patiently rehabbing his pitching arm, hitting steadily but not spectacularly.Ohtanis return appeared to be on schedule when he reported to spring training this year. He was expected to have an innings limitation when he returned to the mound in May, but the delay caused by the coronavirus pandemic allowed Ohtani to start the season in the Angels rotation in July while serving as their designated hitter between starts.

St Louis Series at Detroit Off After Positive Cards Tests
08/03/2020 8:33pm

Seven St. Louis Cardinals players and six staff members have tested positive for COVID-19, causing Major League Baseball to postpone the teams four-game series at Detroit.The series was to have been played at Comerica Park from Tuesday through Thursday.You think about how quickly something like this can spread, Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said. Until it touches you, you sometimes might not believe it, but needless to say we know this is very real and we know it moves quickly and it moves silently, but it can infect a lot of people fast.Mozeliak said that five of those who tested positive did not show symptoms. He said the others did headaches, cough, sniffles, low-grade fever.And of those eight, its a variety of symptoms but nothing at this point requiring anything like hospitalization, Mozeliak said.MLB CoverageMLBAug 1Another Postponement Rattles MLB Brewers&039 Cain Opts OutMLBAug 1No New Positives for Marlins, Phils 2B Isan Diaz Opts OutThe Cardinals have been in quarantine since Thursday in Milwaukee, where their series with the Brewers was also postponed due to positive tests. The league has postponed 21 games because of virus concerns 12 days into the season.The Cardinals situation comes after the Miami Marlins had an outbreak in their traveling party that sidelined half their players, raising concerns about the viability of this pandemic-shortened season.To this point, unfortunately, weve handled this the same way our countrys handled this, Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. We put together guidelines that were well-intentioned and protocols, and then we handed them off to 30 individual operators, i.e. states, and asked them to do their best. Adherence to a set of protocols and suggestions and trying to get it right has just not gone well. It just hasnt gone well. Its because this virus is an incredible, difficult opponent. Its put us behind the 8-ball. I desperately want to play and finish the season its so important for so many people and so many places. But its not going well right now. Its not.Brewers outfielder Lorenzo Cain announced Saturday he wouldnt play the rest of the season and cited all of the uncertainty and unknowns surrounding our game at this time. Teammate Shelby Miller also opted out.How Coronavirus Has Grown in Each State in 1 ChartThis chart shows the cumulative number of cases per state by number of days since the 500th case.Source: The COVID Tracking ProjectCredit: Amy OKruk/NBCCounsell said Monday that its safe to say the news of the Cardinals was jarring and it may have been the final straw for Cain.While all the members of the Cardinals traveling party who tested positive have been returned home, the rest of them remain isolated in their Milwaukee hotel rooms. The team is being tested daily. The hope would be to travel back to St. Louis Wednesday morning, work out Wednesday afternoon and allow players to get their feet moving again, their bodies moving again, Mozeliak said. And then on Thursday have a more robust workout and then play Friday.St. Louis last played July 29 at Minnesota and is tentatively set to resume its schedule this Friday at home against the Chicago Cubs.Mozeliak said he wasnt sure how the team might reschedule some of these games that have been wiped out with two series getting postponed.I havent really even thought about our schedule much other than hopefully playing Friday, Mozeliak said. Its hard to think about the future when youre literally trying to just get through the day.The Cardinals are the second team sidelined by the novel coronavirus since the season started July 23..The Marlins are set to resume play Tuesday in Baltimore following an outbreak in their traveling party that sidelined half the players. Miami has not played since July 26.Because the outbreak occurred in the visiting clubhouse at Citizens Bank Park, the Phillies were sidelined for a week while they were tested daily.I think everyone would be lying if they said they werent frustrated, Philadelphia slugger Rhys Hoskins said. We knew the volatility of the virus coming into the season. We knew these things were a possibility. Not ideal, but here we are where we get to play again.In another virus development, the Field of Dreams game in Iowa was postponed until 2021. The game at a new ballpark on the cornfield adjacent to the site of the 1989 movie had been planned for Aug. 13 in Dyersville.The Chicago White Sox originally were to host the New York Yankees, who were replaced by St. Louis because of MLBs new schedule. The White Sox will be one of the teams next year. The opponent has not been determined.
