Partager Titulaire contre Piacenza (3-0) dimanche, Kamil Rychlicki a déjà pris ses marques dans les rangs de Lube Civitanova. Sur le terrain comme en dehors.SA VIE À CIVITANOVA«Les Italiens aiment parler et gesticuler»«J’habite au centre-ville, à cinq minutes à pied de la mer. Il y a de très belles plages dans le coin. Civitanova est une petite ville (NDLR : 40 000 habitants), plus petite que Ravenne, mais quand vient l’été, elle est très prisée des touristes. Je commence à y avoir mes petites habitudes et j’apprécie la “vie à l’italienne”, plus tranquille où l’on va au restaurant pour manger, bien sûr, mais où l’on y reste pour discuter.Chaque pays véhicule ses stéréotypes et ses clichés. Si l’on ne peut pas toujours s’y fier, ils recèlent sans doute une part de vérité. Et je constate que les Italiens aiment parler et gesticuler… Est-ce que je me suis “italianisé”? Peut-être oui. Comme je ne maîtrise pas encore parfaitement la langue, je dois bien m’aider de mes mains (il rit)…» LE CLUB«On a tout ce dont on a besoin, même plus…»Diletta Leotta Photo : twitter/lube civitanova«À sa création, en 1990, Lube jouait à Macerata. Depuis 2015, il évolue au PalaCivitanova, une salle située dans une zone artisanale, à dix minutes en voiture de chez moi. Cette salle d’une capacité de 4 000 places nous est uniquement destinée, on n’est pas obligé de la partager avec l’équipe de basket ou de handball comme c’était le cas à Ravenne par exemple. Si le club possède de telles installations, c’est grâce en partie au sponsor principal, Cucine Lube, un fabricant de cuisines dont l’un des membres n’est autre que Simona Sileoni, la présidente du club (NDLR : depuis 2005).Lors de la présentation du club pour cette saison, le club avait organisé une grande soirée devant pas moins de 4 000 spectateurs. Elle était animée par deux journalistes de la Rai très connus et populaires (NDLR : Marco Mazzocchi et Diletta Leotta). Pour en revenir au club proprement dit, il est très bien structuré. On a tout ce dont on a besoin, même plus…»LES SUPPORTERS«Je crois avoir entendu une chanson avec mon nom»«Dimanche, pour notre premier match de championnat, il y avait 3 000 spectateurs, c’est bien mais quand on va affronter une équipe du top 5, la salle sera pleine. Par contre, partout où on ira jouer, les salles seront pleines. C’est normal, Lube est champion d’Italie et champion d’Europe. Le club possède un groupe de supporters qui doit compter une centaine de membres. Ils chauffent la salle, mettent l’ambiance, ils ne sont pas juste là pour taper de temps en temps dans leurs mains. Ils ont des chants sur certains joueurs. Dimanche, je crois avoir entendu une chanson avec mon nom mais je n’ai pas compris ce qu’elle disait. Je serai plus attentif la prochaine fois…»SON STATUT«Autour de moi, il y a des attentes»«Je suis jeune, j’arrive à la place d’un bon joueur (NDLR : Sokolov) qui vient de partir et, autour de moi, il y a donc des attentes. Mais dans ce groupe, il y a d’autres grands joueurs. Des gars qui ont eu des médailles olympiques, qui ont gagné la Ligue des champions… Forcément, il y a des ego et c’est normal. Je ne peux pas dire que c’est difficile, l’ambiance est bonne dans le vestiaire mais et je ne peux pas donner d’exemple concret, cela relève davantage d’une observation. C’est dans l’air, ça se sent. Dimanche, contre Piacenza (3-0), c’était mon premier match de championnat avec Civitanova. J’ai débuté la rencontre, j’ai joué les trois sets, malheureusement ce n’était pas le match de mes rêves dans le sens où j’espérais faire mieux (NDLR : 5 points). Mais bon, on a gagné et, à la fin, c’est l’essentiel.»SES ÉQUIPIERS«Ceux qui ne connaissent pas Simon, qu’ils aillent sur YouTube»«Le plus charismatique est Bruno Rezende, notre passeur. Lui, il est toujours à 100 %, toujours positif. Quant au plus fort, Robertlandy Simon, le central cubain, c’est un monstre! Physiquement, il est impressionnant, il saute à une hauteur et a une de ses mains! Ceux qui ne connaissent pas Simon, qu’ils aillent sur YouTube. Sinon, le plus drôle, c’est Andrea Marchisio, le libéro. C’est le genre de mecs qui ne fait que des conneries. Quand il te dit quelque chose, tu ne sais jamais s’il est sérieux ou non…»L’ENTRAÎNEUR«Le gars qui n’est pas à 100 %, il va vite, très vite le repérer!»«Ferdinando De Giorgi est un grand nom du volley mondial (NDLR : triple champion du monde avec l’Italie). Il connaît très bien le haut niveau et a une vraie philosophie de jeu. S’il est accessible, il reste très strict. Il y a des choses avec lesquelles il ne rigole pas. Notamment le respect et l’implication lors des entraînements. Le gars qui n’est pas à 100 %, il va vite, très vite le repérer! Comme je suis nouveau, il me regarde peut-être un peu plus que les autres. Il me parle peut-être davantage qu’à d’autres, mais c’est parce qu’il me dit dans quels domaines je dois progresser et ce que je dois faire pour y parvenir. Par exemple, je dois m’améliorer au bloc et au service. Cela passe par des séances spécifiques mais aussi un travail d’analyse vidéo.»LES OBJECTIFS«La Ligue des champions ne me déplairait pas»«À Civitanova, la question des ambitions ne se pose pas, la réponse est simple : tout gagner. Après, est-ce réaliste, ça c’est une autre question mais, en début de saison, on part avec cet objectif. Disons que gagner deux titres, ce serait bien. Et la Ligue des champions ne me déplairait pas…»Charles Michel
Los Molinos >> The Los Molinos and Mercy boys faced off on the court Tuesday night in a game that started out back and forth and ended with a pull-away win for the host Bulldogs, 64-31.The lopsided final came thanks to the aggressive defensive play of the Bulldogs — bodies and limbs flying everywhere and an officiating crew that called few fouls. Even when the Warriors could get the ball across the center line, the Bulldogs put up a wall around the key that Mercy just couldn’t penetrate. “It’s …

31 July 2013 South African Airways (SAA) and US airline JetBlue Airways have struck a codeshare agreement to seamlessly connect the two carriers’ African and North American networks via New York’s John F Kennedy International Airport, Washington’s Dulles International and Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International. The partnership, an expansion of an interline agreement first inked in 2010, will allow customers to purchase a single ticket combining SAA- and JetBlue-operated flights and enjoy day-of-travel conveniences such as one-stop check-in and baggage transfer. JetBlue said in a statement on Wednesday that it intends to place its “B6” code on South African Airways-operated flights between the US and both Johannesburg and Dakar, Senegal, as well as on connecting flights to select South African destinations beyond Johannesburg, including Cape Town, Durban, East London and Port Elizabeth. Tickets will be available for sale at a later date, pending regulatory and government approvals. Billed as “the fastest way to more of South Africa and southern Africa”, SAA flies non-stop each day between New York and Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International Airport, and daily between Washington and Johannesburg via Dakar’s Leopold Sedar Senghor International Airport. South African Airways has had a similar arrangement in place with JetBlue since 2011, placing its “SA” code on JetBlue-operated flights from its US gateways to top destinations including Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, Florida. “We are excited to expand our successful relationship with South African Airways through this new codeshare via Washington and JFK, where JetBlue is the number one domestic airline,” said Scott Laurence, JetBlue’s vice-president of network planning and partnerships. “South African has been a terrific travel partner for JetBlue, consistently delivering a great experience for our customers,” Laurence said. “We look forward to working with them to offer even more travel options in the years to come.” Marc Cavaliere, SAA’s executive vice-president for North America and Alliances, said SAA’s partnership with JetBlue had been a successful one from the start. “Our customers have raved about the ease of travel on both airlines,” Cavaliere said. “It was only fitting that we expand the partnership and introduce the JetBlue code onto SAA flights and into the African continent.” South African Airways is one of the world’s most awarded airlines, recently named Best Airline in Africa for the 11th consecutive year at the World Airline Awards presented by Skytrax. Via its Johannesburg hub, SAA links the world to most cities and destinations across southern Africa and the Indian Ocean islands, including South Africa, Angola, Botswana, Kenya, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Tanzania, and Zambia. At JFK Airport, JetBlue operates from its acclaimed Terminal 5, while SAA operates from the adjacent Terminal 4, allowing for fast and easy connections between flights. At Washington Dulles, both JetBlue and SAA are co-located in Concourse B. SAinfo reporter

Mohammad Amir getting the wicket of Virat Kohli in the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy final is perhaps one of the most remembered moments of recent cricket. Amir’s breakthrough took the game away from India and Pakistan went on to win the trophy for the first time.Pakistan had trounced India by 180 runs in the final to win the title at the Oval, despite having lost to the same team in group stage by 124 runs (DLS method).Amir was the wrecker-in-chief in the final as he got the wickets of the top three (Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Kohli) within nine overs to leave India in dire straits.Amir has now revealed how he set up the wicket of Virat Kohli and how he gauged the mindset of India’s best batsman to trap him with that outswinging delivery.”The Champions Trophy final was one of the most special moments of my career because that made the public of Pakistan extremely happy. That match made the entire public of the country as one.”When Virat Kohli came in, I had bowled an inswing delivery and he was beaten. Rohit Sharma was also dismissed off an inswinging delivery. About Kohli, there is this thing that early on when he is not set on the crease, he gets beaten by owtswing and he struggles if you get him out of good areas. So I knew that I had bowled an inswing delivery to him and I did not have to bowl the same again,” Amir said at the Voice of Cricket show.advertisementAlso read – What were Kohli, Malik and Yuvraj laughing about after Champions Trophy final?Amir said that he was just thinking that the Fakhar Zaman episode should not come back to bite Pakistan and was simply praying for Kohli’s wicket.Earlier in the match, in the first innings, Jasprit Bumrah had picked Zaman’s wicket in the fourth over when he had scored just three runs but it turned out to be a no-ball and the Pakistani opener went on to score a century.”He [Kohli] was dropped earlier and when I was going for the run-up after that I was thinking that I hope the Fakhar Zaman case does not happen with us because a batsman like Kohli, if you give him a chance then it’s gone. His winning ratio in the second innings is the most, he performs the best in pressure. I was praying to God for his wicket and was thinking he should not take the match away from us because if he would have played till the end, he would have won India the match.”If you see his body language also, he was like Amir will bowl to me an inswinging delivery and so I had it in mind, that I have to bowl to him in the same area but an outswing. The next ball he was completely on the onside thinking I will bowl an inswing and got out,” Amir further added.Amir added that in tough situations it was important to know your role as a bowler and said that it was important to know the strengths and weaknesses of the batsman you’re bowling at.”In tough situations, some players perform some don’t. That’s a problem of the mind because your thinking towards the game is very important. When you take a ball or the bat, you should know what your role is. For example when I have to bowl with the new ball, I should know that I have to get a breakthrough with the new ball. We should know the batsman’s strengths and weaknesses. Like if I knew that Kohli plays well on the leg and I keep bowling him there, I’m a stupid bowler, I don’t know my role.”Off the field however, Amir had only good words for the Indian captain and said that Kohli was “extremely humble” outside the ground.”He [Kohli] has given me two bats, one during the T20 World Cup and then during the Champions Trophy. Kohli is such a good person. On the field, it looks like he is aggressive and it should be like that. But off the field, he is extremely humble.”When questioned what was a more precious wicket for Amir — Sachin Tendulkar’s or Virat Kohli’s in the Champions Trophy final, Amir had a very particular reason for picking Tendulkar’s wicket.”Both. They’re both big batsmen. Tendulkar I will say because when I was playing then, I was new to the team and Tendulkar was at the fag end of his career and he was a huge name in world cricket. Kohli had not even made his name at that time. So it used to be like if you take Sachin’s wicket, it will be very special. So Sachin’s wicket was special for me.”advertisement

Junior quarterback Braxton Miller (5) hands off the ball to senior running back Carlos Hyde (34) during a game against Northwestern Oct. 5. OSU won, 40-30. Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorFresh off its first bye week of the 2013 season, the Ohio State football team (6-0, 2-0) is preparing for a battle this Saturday against Iowa (4-2, 1-1).The Hawkeyes are tied with Oklahoma for the nation’s 12th-best defense in terms of points against (16.8 average per game), doing so by thwarting the rushing attacks of their opponents. The team has yet to allow a rushing score.OSU coach Urban Meyer is well aware of this fact, and was even more impressed by something he learned while scouting his team’s week eight opponent.“They haven’t (played) goal-line defense (yet),” Meyer said.But don’t expect the Buckeyes, who are 11th in the nation in rushing, to become pass-happy for a week.“We’re not going to change our game plan. We’re going to do what Ohio State does, and that’s run the ball,” said senior running back Carlos Hyde.Hyde is determined to crack Iowa’s highly-touted defensive line for large gains the way he did in OSU’s 40-30 win against Northwestern Oct. 5. Against the Wildcats, Hyde tallied 168 yards and three touchdowns.“I run determined not to be stopped … It’’s going to take the whole defense to tackle me,” Hyde said. “That’s my mindset.”Redshirt-senior center Corey Linsley said in a game like Saturday’s, running the ball successfully is essential for the team to come out on top.“We’re (going to) have to play an extremely good game in terms of rushing the football, and our tempo is definitely going to dictate that,” Linsley said.Starting junior quarterback Braxton Miller said the Hawkeye defense is probably the best the Buckeye offense has seen so on film so far this year. Miller, who fumbled twice against Northwestern, said ball security will be key, and is something he has been working on in practice.“Watching film, I really wasn’t holding the ball correctly … I wasn’t holding the ball real tight,” Miller said.The coaching staff had the quarterback hold onto a ball during team stretches in practice this week, Miller said.Although the Hawkeyes are OSU’s first unranked opponent since Florida A&M, the team knows every game during Big Ten play poses a stiff test.“The weeks that we have taken off, those are the weeks that we’ve gotten beat. The weeks that we’ve treated those teams as what the (AP poll) treats them as, what the rest of the country treats them as, as non-ranked, blow-off opponents, those are the weeks that we get beat,” Linsley said. “We’ve kind of learned from history, and we’re not taking this week lightly.”Iowa is scheduled to visit Ohio Stadium for OSU’s homecoming game Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
