written on January 24, 2022

6 portraits of Savoyard sportswomen to support women’s sport in Savoie! Our department, which is the 3rd in France for the number of licensees in relation to its population, has 54,130 licensees, or around 25% of its female population!

2020 01 Perrine Pelen 390

The Courchevel Méribel 2023 World Ski Championships could hardly have dreamed of a better general manager: Perrine Pelen returns to his first love.

The young Sofiane Djahafi was on trial for two days with the Crocos (Photo Boris Boutet)

Like every day from Monday to Friday, discover the essentials of Gard sports news in a few pieces of information.

Nimes Olympic

Twenty-four Crocos on the bridge. Ueda left for selection, Cubas injured and Briançon in the recovery phase did not participate in the session of the day. This was not the case either for Bratveit and Valerio, who remained in care but who should logically be operational for the reception of Valenciennes this Friday at 7 p.m. for this late match of the 21st day. While Aribi and Ferhat trained separately with Aurélien Boche, the physical trainer, twenty-four players took part in the session led by Nicolas Usaï and his assistants. We note in particular the presence of Nazih, back from injury. Nicolas Benezet, who has been training with the group for a few days was still there. For a simple fitness? ” Maybe more replied the person concerned to a child who had questioned him. Endoume striker (N3) Sofiane Djahafi trained for two days with the Crocos for a trial. Nicolas Usaï has decided to release him tomorrow.

The 24 Crocos present: Dias, Nazih, Malafosse – Burner, Paquiez, Sainte-Luce, Guessoum, Martinez, Pontet, Zaidan, Philibert – Delpech, Sarr, Fomba, Ponceau, Khalid, Benrahou, Eliasson, Benezet – El Ftouhi, Omarsson, Koné, Doucouré, Jahafi.

Benrahou and Eliasson at the wand. During the day’s session, the Crocos worked on the ball exits from the sides, leading to crosses for the attackers. Direct and indirect free kicks, corners, the Nîmes also repeated their ranges on offensive and defensive set pieces under the watchful eye of Nicolas Usaï. “ The ideal when you’re in the wall, it’s to take the ball in the face, and if you’re bleeding from the nose, too bad “, he said in particular to his players. At the baton, Benrahou and Eliasson were rather skilful. The two men also stayed at the end of the session to challenge Nazih during an exercise in front of goal in which Koné, Omarsson and Sarr also took part.

USAM Nimes Gard

Quentin Dupuy is hit in the adductors (Photo Anthony Maurin)

Paul back, Dupuy touched. After finishing second last weekend at the Saint-Raphaël tournament and enjoying two days of rest, the Usamists resumed training this morning at Parnassus. A session where coach Franck Maurice picked up two additional players: young Guéric Vincent and goalkeeper Teodor Paul, back from Euro 2022 which he played with Slovakia. The Nîmes will therefore have at least one professional goalkeeper to face the Var formation again this Saturday at home for a last preparation match. On the other hand, a new player has joined the always busy infirmary. This is Quentin Dupuy, hit in the adductors. As a reminder: Tesio, Rebichon, Gallego, Nyateu, Jakobsen, Hesham, Acquevillo are unavailable. Desbonnet participates in the Euro with the Blues who are playing a decisive match tonight against Denmark to qualify for the semi-finals.

RCN

RCN – TOAC-TOEC highly threatened. The covid is definitely going after the good performance of the Federal 1 championship and particularly the meetings of the Rugby Club Nîmes. After the matches against Ceret (postponed to February 13), Castanet (postponed to March 20) and Saint-Sulpice (cancelled), it is the confrontation against TOAC-TOEC scheduled for Sunday which is ” highly threatened” according to Steeve Calligaro, the president of the RCN. Even if the Toulouse leaders have not yet officially requested a postponement, it should not take long. Indeed, a dozen positive cases at Covid would have been detected in the Haut-Garonne club. Faced with the accumulation of match postponements for a few weeks, the French Rugby Federation would consider postponing the final stages by two weeks to free up dates in order to update the calendar. As a result, the Saint-Sulpice – Nîmes match which was initially canceled could therefore finally be played. For now, the Nîmes, who have not played since December 19 (victory against Graulhet 37-30), do not know if they will be able to return to competition on Sunday at Kaufmann.

Table tennis

Nîmes loses but provides the essential. Unsurprisingly, the Saint-Denis table tennis players, reigning French champions, were too strong for the ASPCN (3-1). But the point won from the outset by the Gardoise Jee is decisive: it allows the girls of Florian Habuda to finish the regular season in 9th place and start their play-downs against Schiltigheim, bottom of the championship. To maintain hopes of maintenance, the Nîmes will have to win this return match. During the regular season, the Alsaciennes at home surprised the Nîmes (3-2).

January 24, 2022 is International Women’s Sports Day. This was created in 2014 by the Superior Audiovisual Council and the French National Olympic and Sports Committee and aimed “to allow women’s sport to gain visibility and contribute to its better representation in the media”. Béatrice Knoepfler, co-president of Bordeaux Mérignac Volley, signs a platform to testify to the persistence of sexist prejudices accompanying the practice of sport by women, and denounces the inequalities of treatment with men, including the invisibilization of sportswomen in the media.

Here is one of the official photos of the 2021-2022 season representing the Bordeaux Mérignac Volley (BMV) team, which plays in the Elite championship, the second national division.

When it was broadcast, observers were moved by the absence of a smile from the players. It was, according to them, “a pity”, even “they make the mouth! “.

Translate: they do not correspond to the representation that we have of women and, by extension, of sportswomen. Because, in this representation housed in the collective imagination, itself housed in the tradition of perception of the feminine, women must smile in the photos.

Do you like to experiment? Ask any woman or young girl how many times she’s been called out to by a stranger on the street saying, “Well, aren’t we giving a little smile?!” As if it were perfectly obvious that a woman has to smile all the time, anytime – and on demand if she doesn’t inadvertently wander around with her teeth out – to satisfy the need for female embodiment that arises. builds an unknown. Who considers, by the way, that this smile is due to him.

It’s exactly the same with this photo.

The Pink Peril

In another style of representation, each sports club has a logo. When Valérie Pull and I were elected co-presidents of BMV, one of the very first actions was to change the club’s logo. The latter was available in pink, like the vast majority of women’s team sports club logos.

Again, a small emotion took hold of some observers. The more daring lamented this change, deeming burgundy and navy blue too dark, while pink was so “bright” and “suitable”. And, there again, for a lot of people, women’s sport = pink. By touch or solid: roses, outfits, roses, logos.

If we take a look at the symbolism of colors, we learn that pink is associated with romanticism and femininity. For a big bundle of dated spirits, it’s the color for girls (versus blue for boys). And if we look a little closer, we understand that sportswomen must retain this part of visible femininity, so as not to destabilize the representation that we have of them as women. However, it is quite rare for a player to declaim Ronsard under an umbrella when planting an attack in the opposing field.

Behave ?

I pass on the institutionalized sexualization of the body of sportswomen who must still and always fight for the right to wear the outfits of their choice (cf. the fine of 1500€ imposed on the Norwegian beach hand ball team by the discipline of the European Handball Federation for having played in shorts and not in a regulatory bikini during the Tokyo Olympics in 2021). I still remember the reflection of a lady during an event linked to the club: she thought it indecent that the logo of a partner was affixed to the back of the players’ shorts and asked me about the compatibility with our positions described as “feminist”. This same logo is on the buttocks of Union Bordeaux Bègles rugby players without raising the slightest question about the hypersexualization of their bodies.

The problem does not come from the outfit, it comes from the way it is perceived and, in short, it is ok on the buttocks of rugby players, but it is indecent on those of volleyball players.

Women’s sport is thus subject to very entrenched representations and suffers, paradoxically, from a lack of…representation in the media, what is also called media representativeness.

Do we say male sport?

Pile what aims to democratize the International Day of Women’s Sport on January 24. There are in this day – beyond the laudable intention – two problems:

The first is the ephemeral side of the Single Day, which encloses “women’s sport” in the big family of what is considered a minority. Athletes are not a minority. Women are not a minority: they make up 51.6% of the French population (INSEE as of 1is January 2019).

The second is this permanent denomination: women’s sport. Have you ever heard of “men’s sport”?

I offer you a new experience: read, listen, watch sports news. You will never hear “men’s football, league 1”, nor “European men’s handball championship” (currently in progress). Nor ever “masculine” behind any sport info practiced by men. Because it is culturally anchored, and especially in the journalistic treatment very mainly carried out by men, that sport is masculine.

It is implicitly considered the norm, hence the systematic “feminine” specification when it is practiced by women. From this tradition stems the unequal treatment of sport and the low place given to sportswomen.

Persistent inequalities

And when this inequality of treatment is pointed out, the authors object to the archaic excuse of the number of licensees and omit the well-known mercantile argument: “It’s the men who like sport and we serve them what they like , so they buy. »

January 24, 2022 is International Women’s Sports Day. This was created in 2014 by the Superior Audiovisual Council and the French National Olympic and Sports Committee and aimed “to allow women’s sport to gain visibility and contribute to its better representation in the media”. Béatrice Knoepfler, co-president of Bordeaux Mérignac Volley, signs a platform to testify to the persistence of sexist prejudices accompanying the practice of sport by women, and denounces the inequalities of treatment with men, including the invisibilization of sportswomen in the media.

Here is one of the official photos of the 2021-2022 season representing the Bordeaux Mérignac Volley (BMV) team, which plays in the Elite championship, the second national division.

When it was broadcast, observers were moved by the absence of a smile from the players. It was, according to them, “a pity”, even “they make the mouth! “.

Translate: they do not correspond to the representation that we have of women and, by extension, of sportswomen. Because, in this representation housed in the collective imagination, itself housed in the tradition of perception of the feminine, women must smile in the photos.

Do you like to experiment? Ask any woman or young girl how many times she’s been called out to by a stranger on the street saying, “Well, aren’t we giving a little smile?!” As if it were perfectly obvious that a woman has to smile all the time, anytime – and on demand if she doesn’t inadvertently wander around with her teeth out – to satisfy the need for female embodiment that arises. builds an unknown. Who considers, by the way, that this smile is due to him.

It’s exactly the same with this photo.

The Pink Peril

In another style of representation, each sports club has a logo. When Valérie Pull and I were elected co-presidents of BMV, one of the very first actions was to change the club’s logo. The latter was available in pink, like the vast majority of women’s team sports club logos.

Again, a small emotion took hold of some observers. The more daring lamented this change, deeming burgundy and navy blue too dark, while pink was so “bright” and “suitable”. And, there again, for a lot of people, women’s sport = pink. By touch or solid: roses, outfits, roses, logos.

If we take a look at the symbolism of colors, we learn that pink is associated with romanticism and femininity. For a big bundle of dated spirits, it’s the color for girls (versus blue for boys). And if we look a little closer, we understand that sportswomen must retain this part of visible femininity, so as not to destabilize the representation that we have of them as women. However, it is quite rare for a player to declaim Ronsard under an umbrella when planting an attack in the opposing field.

Behave ?

I pass on the institutionalized sexualization of the body of sportswomen who must still and always fight for the right to wear the outfits of their choice (cf. the fine of 1500€ imposed on the Norwegian beach hand ball team by the discipline of the European Handball Federation for having played in shorts and not in a regulatory bikini during the Tokyo Olympics in 2021). I still remember the reflection of a lady during an event linked to the club: she thought it indecent that the logo of a partner was affixed to the back of the players’ shorts and asked me about the compatibility with our positions described as “feminist”. This same logo is on the buttocks of Union Bordeaux Bègles rugby players without raising the slightest question about the hypersexualization of their bodies.

The problem does not come from the outfit, it comes from the way it is perceived and, in short, it is ok on the buttocks of rugby players, but it is indecent on those of volleyball players.

Women’s sport is thus subject to very entrenched representations and suffers, paradoxically, from a lack of…representation in the media, what is also called media representativeness.

Do we say male sport?

Pile what aims to democratize the International Day of Women’s Sport on January 24. There are in this day – beyond the laudable intention – two problems:

The first is the ephemeral side of the Single Day, which encloses “women’s sport” in the big family of what is considered a minority. Athletes are not a minority. Women are not a minority: they make up 51.6% of the French population (INSEE as of 1is January 2019).

The second is this permanent denomination: women’s sport. Have you ever heard of “men’s sport”?

I offer you a new experience: read, listen, watch sports news. You will never hear “men’s football, league 1”, nor “European men’s handball championship” (currently in progress). Nor ever “masculine” behind any sport info practiced by men. Because it is culturally anchored, and especially in the journalistic treatment very mainly carried out by men, that sport is masculine.

It is implicitly considered the norm, hence the systematic “feminine” specification when it is practiced by women. From this tradition stems the unequal treatment of sport and the low place given to sportswomen.

Persistent inequalities

And when this inequality of treatment is pointed out, the authors object to the archaic excuse of the number of licensees and omit the well-known mercantile argument: “It’s the men who like sport and we serve them what they like , so they buy. »

For the record, the role of the journalist is to inform about the reality on the ground. Lands. These grounds are also occupied by women, professional sportswomen and high-level sportswomen. And not just on January 24. Behind this unequal treatment, there is nothing less than the evidence of persistent inequalities between women and men.

Because it’s not “only” sport, it’s a translation – among all the others in force in society – of the desire to make women invisible and to work, by cultural tradition with old pompoms, to mark a territory which nevertheless belongs as much to some as to some.

This January 24 is celebrated the sporting activity for women. The opportunity to highlight the work carried out within the women’s section of our club, which for the first season, registers more than 140 players. In its eighth season of existence, girls represent more than 30% of Clermont Foot 63 licensees.

From 5 years old, the club offers a practice for all, with weekly training and teams in all existing categories. An exception in the “Auvergnat” territory and a place in the top 5 clubs with the most licensees in the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes league, the first region of France in terms of practitioners. About thirty girls under 9 practice every Wednesday afternoon and some Saturday mornings.

The U13 and U15 women, coached by senior graduate players Justine Eyraud and Marion Rabeyrolles play in men’s championships. They have just finished first in their pool and each get a promotion to D3!

The first senior team has a 7-point lead over the second and hopes to quickly validate this position synonymous with the D2 accession dam. The players coached by Quentin Vaillant have just won two mid-season friendly matches, against Auxerre (2-1) and Bourges (7-2), two other contenders for the climb. Faiza Houmadi (on the right of the photo), trained at the club and living in the Croix-Neyrat district of Clermont-Ferrand, is having his best season with 4 new goals in these two games.

The reserve still holds its rank by dominating the R2F championship. The young U18F, second in the regional ranking, are still in the race for the national U19 accession play-offs.

We would like to thank all the partners for providing a quality welcome for this women’s section which trains on the Gabriel Montpied and Camille Leclanché complexes. The city of Clermont-FD, Clermont Auvergne Métropole and our sponsors: Crédit Mutuel, Coudert transport and the Sport Féminin & Co association. Finally, thank you also to all of our educators and volunteers for their unfailing commitment .

Find on this link the workforce of the female R1

As well as the different rankings here

The club will organize an “open door / detection” day for 5-13 year olds during the February holidays.

When we left Interstate 5 in the direction of Carlsbad at the wheel of the Mercedes-AMG SL 63 4Matic+ that we were testing, the beautiful sports car must have felt like coming home. Because it was here, in the Advanced Exterior Design Studio at Mercedes, that it all started. It was here that Christopher Thoms, Senior Creative Designer, took his pencil and put his own vision for the new SL to paper, a project that would win the internal competition and serve as the basis for the first SL entirely developed by AMG in Affalterbach.

Capturing the spirit of the legendary 300 SL

We go through the back door – Carlsbad Design Studio’s only entrance for cars – and of course discretion is key, and even a top priority. Like a luxury hotel that says nothing about its famous guests, total discretion reigns here over the projects under development: in Carlsbad, we know well before anyone else what will roll on the roads of the world in three or four years – no wonder the design team won’t let us see it all on our date. Behind some sketches of the Mercedes-AMG SL, a long black curtain protects the design of a secret project from our prying eyes. After the presentation of Mercedes’ latest show car at the Consumer Electronics Show 2022 in Las Vegas, we imagine: is it the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX? This electric concept car was also designed in Carlsbad.

The studio is a large, bright room, with the employees’ workstations positioned along the walls. No windows, everything is immersed in the white light of innumerable ceiling lights, and mirrors visually lengthen the room – we are definitely on a sleek design. The model is in the center, visible from all offices. So everyone can immediately see where the rest of the team is at.

But before filling, sanding and polishing the Mercedes-AMG SL, it was already necessary to win the internal competition of Mercedes designers from all over the world. The objective of Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer of Daimler AG, was clear: to capture the spirit of the legendary 300 SL, which was also produced as a production sports car from 1954 under the internal designation W198.

After having imposed himself within his studio, Christopher Thoms put his project in competition with the other Advanced Design studios of Sindelfingen, Beijing, Nice… with success: the Carlsbad Design Studio was thus entrusted with the reissue of the one of the most iconic models in the Mercedes range. The champagne corks popped! Then came the fine-tuning stage, in constant exchange with the Head of Design and always following Gorden Wagener’s philosophy of sensual clarity. Some details of the current Mercedes-AMG SL have also hardly changed between the original concept and series production, such as the extremely flat LED taillights, one of the big highlights according to Thoms.

But the designers may also have taken advantage of the fact that this eighth generation of the Mercedes SL was designed from scratch. The raw structure, for example: “Not a single component comes from the previous model or from another model like the AMG GT Roadster”, assures the car manufacturer. The designers thus had more freedom and were able to give the new 2+2-seater a sporty and fresh look, without losing sight of the original SL. The AMG radiator shroud, with its 14 vertical slats and the two Powerdomes on the engine cover, are just two of the many reminiscences of the first generation SL from 1952 (the W194).

Enabling Mulhouse schoolchildren to discover different sports and meet athletes is the objective of Olympic and Paralympic Week, which takes place at the Regional Sports Centre.

“How many medals do you have? How do you transport your horses? On their birthday, what do they eat? » The questions were flying this Tuesday morning, in the auditorium of the Regional Sports Center (CSRA), where a class of CP from the Illberg school met the disabled rider Cloé Mislin, after a volleyball session and before a gym class… “The goal is to introduce people to my sport and tell them to move to stay in shape. This message resonates all the more for me, for whom sport is life-saving and allows me to stay in good health”, explains Cloé Mislin, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease and who is aiming in particular to qualify for the Paralympic Games in Paris in 2024.

“Give them a taste for sport”

And it is precisely thanks to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games and the Generation 2024 label, which aims to develop bridges between the school world and the sports movement, that a good twenty Mulhouse classes can discover the sports world this week. “The objective is to make them meet local athletes or not, explains Jean-Michel Dauce, educational advisor in physical education and sports, who coordinates this week. Some were able to meet the disabled swimmer Béatrice Hess, others did visio with champions like Alain Bernard (swimming) or Margot Pinot (judo). But the goal is also for them to practice sports and meet associations, to give them a taste for sport, while promoting Paris 2024! »

Self-transcendence and respect for the rules

And if, according to the pedagogical adviser, “Children do less sport in general and since the pandemic, it’s even worse”, you just have to push open the doors of the CSRA gymnasium to realize that the desire and the need to exercise are always present among these CP students from the Illberg school. On the program for this hour of gym led by Sophie Etterlen, from the Haut-Rhin Departmental Gymnastics Committee, an agility course in the form of a race, which delights children. “They move a lot, it’s important to develop their motor skills, says their teacher, Anne Roussel. This also allows them to understand the values ​​of sport, team spirit, self-transcendence, but also respect for the rules and the opponent, while discovering new disciplines. A mother told me that she hopes her daughter will find happiness, it’s good to allow them to try several disciplines! »

A new “orange” dumpster has been installed on Place de Bouvier. You can put big boxes in there.

It is now a certainty, the covered sports ground project will materialize in 2022. Monday evening during the meeting of the municipal council, Georges Lacour recalled that during the previous meeting, five work packages out of 10 had been declared unsuccessful and that this Monday was to examine the results of the new consultation: “The new offers concerning the five unsuccessful positions arrived on January 7, they were sent to the economist on January 10 and finally, they arrived this Monday morning at the town hall…” made a point of specifying the mayor of the commune.

After the presentation of the new offers, the elected officials voted in favor of the mayor signing the works contracts. Which implies that they should start in the 2nd week of March 2022, after some adjustments with certain companies. The covered sports ground could therefore be delivered at the very beginning of 2023. “If all goes well, knowing that companies are currently encountering supply difficulties…” specified Georges Lacour.
In terms of financing, the total amount of work (10 lots) now amounts to €737,136 (instead of €804,549 previously) for an overall envelope of €840,000 with nearly €400,000 in aid: “We arrives at €320,000 in aid today and we are still hoping for a subsidy of €25,000 from the Department and €35,000 from the French tennis federation…” recalled the mayor who then cited the aid already obtained with the DETR (equipment for rural territories) 2021 of €150,000, the Region for €144,000 and the Department (in 2020) for the sum of €25,000.

THROUGHOUT THE FILES

2022 DETR Grant Application

The municipality has the possibility of positioning the extension of the micro-nursery to apply for aid within the framework of the DETR 2022. Several offers of work ranging from €28,000 to €62,800 have been received at the town hall for enlarge the existing structure and improve the reception capacity which will increase to 12 children instead of the current 10.
To date, nothing is stopped, the mayor wishes to review the companies. A request for a DETR grant of €40,000 will be requested for this extension, which could materialize at the end of the year or in 2023.
The request for assistance must be made before February 18, 2022.

Maintenance of rural roads

The municipality has submitted a file to the CUCM in order to benefit from the “maintenance of rural roads” competition fund. The CUCM authorized the conclusion of a support fund agreement with the municipality and the payment of the sum of €4,882. It was necessary to deliberate in order to benefit from the payment of the support fund.
The council agreed. The municipality will receive the sum of €4,882 under the “maintenance of rural roads” competition fund.

Points voluntary contributions

After a relative calm, it seems that several incivilities (wild deposits) have been noted at the Saint-Privé collection point. The CUCM is aware of these problems and plans to put up an information panel to raise awareness among the inhabitants of the area. Reminder: the incivilities observed are liable to fines.
Concerning the waste collection point on the Place de Bouvier, Georges Lacour pointed out the presence of a new ORANGE color skip which can accommodate large boxes.

Vanessa Demopoulos defeated Silvana Gomez Juarez by submission this weekend in a preliminary bout at UFC 270, ahead of the clash between Ciryl Gane and Francis Ngannou. Less than two months after having definitively stopped the striptease, the American won her first fight within the prestigious organization.

At a time when all eyes were on the two main fights of UFC 270, the heavyweight clash between Francis Ngannou and Ciryl Gane and the technical duel between Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno in the flyweight category, a young woman 33-year-old won the first fight of his UFC career on Sunday.

Arriving in MMA late, Vanessa Demopoulos dominated Silvana Gomez Juarez with a beautiful submission on an armbar in the first round. In just two minutes and 25 seconds of combat on the preliminary card of the event organized in Anaheim (California), the American made an impression. Better, his quick victory earned him a nice bonus of 50,000 dollars for the performance of the evening. An incredible performance for Vanessa Demopoulos who left her job as a stripper to focus on her sports career only a few weeks ago.

Demopoulos: “I was an exotic dancer for 13 years”

After two defeats in the UFC and a rather average career so far in MMA (six wins for four losses before this success) Vanessa Demopoulos did not seem to be destined for the big titles. But after submitting Silvana Gomez Juarez this weekend, the American made an impression with disarming assurance at a press conference. Especially when the journalists present asked her about her previous activity.

“I don’t think it’s a secret, I was an exotic dancer for 13 years,” Vanessa Demopoulos said after her UFC win.

Relaunched on the splits she made in the center of the cage after beating her Argentine rival, “Lil Monster” (understand the “little monster”) again showed a good dose of self-mockery.

“It was my stripper guard, the fighter joked again. And I didn’t really say it in the ring, but I would like to say it right away: I stopped being a stripper. teaser to continue this training camp. I stopped dancing about six to eight weeks ago so I could focus full time on MMA and take it very seriously by going to the gym every day.”

The striptease “saved” his life

Expert in pole dance and jiu-jitsu, Vanessa Demopoulos now intends to make a career in MMA and only in MMA. However, she does not regret her past in strip clubs since this career saved her life when she was at risk of falling into drugs. In 2018, the one who had just started her professional career in combat sports and won the Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA) straw title there confided in the contribution of striptease to her daily life as a fighter. .

“I first got into kickboxing, actually, through pole dancing. I’m an exotic dancer. I got scouted as a pole dancer, and they said if I put that same determination and mentality in combat, I could be gifted, Demopoulos explained to the Combat Press site. […] Pole dancing requires a lot of agility, a lot of body awareness, a lot of dexterity and flexibility, and you have to react quickly. It’s similar to jiu-jitsu, but in jiu-jitsu you have the choice to tap out if you have to, or you’re safe if you’re on the ground. With pole dancing, you face death more in the sense that you literally cling to a single limb. One false move and it’s over. You fall two floors and that’s it. You only fall once.”

In addition to the $50,000 bonus for the evening’s performance at UFC 270, Vanessa Demopoulos took home an additional $24,000 for her fight against Silvana Gomez Juarez. What give him reason to have definitively stopped his career as a stripper in order to use his body in another way, more brutal, in the octagon.

New row over Winter Olympics follows numerous divisive incidents

The order announced by Ukrainian Sports Minister Vadim Gutzeit to the country’s sports stars not to be photographed with Russian rivals at the Beijing Winter Olympics is just the latest in a series of incidents curious involving athletes from both countries.

Gutzeit’s apparent insistence follows a series of controversies and arguments, ranging from oblivious to open provocation.

Here are some themes.

Russian and Ukrainian sportsmen have been warned against fraternization

Perhaps the most enraged political response to stars from both countries posing together came at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, when Ukraine’s defense minister issued a stern rebuke – controversially referring to a “Russian-Ukrainian War” – by summoning bronze high jump winner Yaroslava Mahuchikh to explain herself after she was photographed kissing Russian champion and fellow army athlete Maria Lasitskene.

Some fans also reacted with outrage and called the pair traitors, but several athletes and politicians publicly pushed back against those accusations and backed the mutually-admiring medalists, who were pictured together again after the Olympics.

The response prompted Ukrainian Paralympian Ihor Tsvietov to refuse to join his Russian sprint rivals on the medal podium, having been photographed alongside them in an earlier event.

Premier League champion Oleksandr Zinchenko has been warned he is failing to “defending honor” of Ukraine posing with Russian UFC great Khabib Nurmagomedov during a match in England.

“I wish you good luck in everything,” undeterred, Nurmagomedov wrote in the caption of another portrait of the couple together. “Even if someone doesn’t like it. »
