FORMULA 1: Hamilton Battles Back as Rosberg Wins Chinese Grand Prix

first_imgNico Rosberg took his third straight win of 2016 as Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton fought back to seventh in a hectic Chinese Grand Prix.World champion Hamilton started from the back, suffered a broken front wing on lap one and did five pit stops.The Briton faces the prospect of trying to overhaul a 36-point deficit in the remaining 18 races of the season.Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel came second despite colliding with team-mate Kimi Raikkonen on the first lap.The incident damaged both cars, with Raikkonen fighting back to fifth behind the Red Bulls of Daniil Kvyat and Daniel Ricciardo.Raikkonen’s rise through the field included passing Hamilton in the closing stages, Ferrari’s decision to use soft tyres for the final stint as opposed to the mediums chosen by Mercedes giving the Finn an advantage as the Briton fought in vain to try to pass the Williams of Felipe Massa.Hamilton will express his confidence at being able to erode Rosberg’s points lead and will expect his awful luck of the first three races to turnaround – but the fact remains that no driver who has won the first three races of a season has failed to go on to claim the World Championship.The race was shaped by an incident-packed opening, with a number of collisions on the first lap leading to the introduction of the safety car on lap four.By that stage, Hamilton and Raikkonen had already pitted once to replace front wings damaged in first-corner collisions.Raikkonen moved right into Vettel’s path as the German moved left to ensure he was not tagged by an aggressive dive down the inside by Kvyat.Hamilton was then turned into by Sauber’s Felipe Nasr as he avoided Raikkonen’s damaged car swerving back on to the circuit.Vettel confronted Kvyat about the incident in the pre-podium room after the race, saying: “If I don’t go left, you crash into us and we all three go out – you are like a torpedo.”Kvyat replied: “We didn’t crash.” Vettel responded: “You didn’t. You were lucky this time.” Kvyat shrugged: “I’m on the podium; you’re on the podium.”In the post-race interviews, Kvyat added: “You see the gap, you go for it on the inside. You see one car it is hard to see both. It was a risky move, I agree with Seb but you have to take risks and I am on the podium.”At the front, Ricciardo had made a stunning start to take the lead from pole-sitter Rosberg at the first corner.In the process his left-rear wheel had been tagged by Rosberg’s front wing. Whether it was that or the debris on the track, Ricciardo suffered a left-rear puncture on lap three, allowing the Mercedes to pass.Ricciardo would almost certainly not have been able to hold off Rosberg in any case, but his removal from the lead left the German serene out front.Mercedes decided not to stop him under the safety car and when the race re-started on lap nine, Rosberg simply drove off into the distance.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

England face hosts after qualifying third in Denmark

first_img England, bidding to regain the title last won in 2010, qualified in third place in the European Men’s Team Championships at Silkeborg Ry in Denmark.With the best five scores to count in the two stroke play qualifying rounds, England scored 375 on day one and 368 yesterday for 23 over par, eight strokes behind top qualifiers France and two adrift of runners-up Ireland.That means England face Denmark in Thursday’s opening match play top flight, with two morning foursomes and five afternoon singles.No one beat the tough par of 72 on the opening day but Hampshire’s Neil Raymond (image copyright Tom Ward Photography)  and Kent’s Max Orrin matched it.  In the second day’s play Raymond’s golf continued to impress when he posted a two-under-par 70 and Orrin was again in form with 72. 11 Jul 2013 England face hosts after qualifying third in Denmark last_img read more

Fleetwood: England Golf grounding was launchpad for career

first_img Tommy Fleetwood has admitted pulling on the England Golf kit as an amateur remains a career highlight and an experience which has helped make him the player he is today.The 29-year-old became the latest former England Golf graduate to give up his time to field questions from the current national squads and coaches during a frank and honest online Q&A session.Fleetwood detailed his rise from the Lancashire county scene, through the England set-up, Challenge Tour and then onto the European Tour.He admitted his career has been fuelled by two main goals – becoming world number one and winning The Open Championship – and detailed the work ethic, strategy and techniques that drive him towards more successes.Now ranked number 10 in the world and spurred on by his second place finish in last year’s Open at Royal Portrush, Fleetwood still has his sights set firmly on those twin career targets.But he freely admits that the apprenticeship he served in his amateur career, the coaching he received and the connections he made in the England Golf ranks are stlll having an impact on his golfing journey ten years after he turned pro.Fleetwood said: “I remember as a really young kid there was a British Amateur played at Southport and Ainsdale and Birkdale. Taking part was a group of players wearing that England shirt and with the rose emblem on their shoes.“The rose was a quite a powerful symbol to me and I looked and said to myself that one day I wanted to wear those shoes and that shirt.“My first England call up was to play an event in Holland and I remember getting my kit delivered and being proud to pull it on.“There is a pressure as you represent your country. Throughout my amateur life I always respected my country and I still have that appreciation and respect for the amateur game.“I couldn’t have had a better apprenticeship. There is always the debate about US college or staying in the England system.“I travelled the world playing the game I love with great players and fantastic coaching.“When you learn your game and craft that’s all you want. There’s nothing I would have done differently and I couldn’t have got any more out of the system.“I’m grateful for what England gave me as an amateur and passionate about the experience. I have only fond memories and I want to give back.”In 2010 and aged just 19, Fleetwood won the English Amateur Championship at Little Aston.Recalling the win he said: “Any amateur event or team event I won I still think how amazing it was and I’d do it all again.“I don’t put the English Amateur beneath anything I’ve achieved since. All my wins mean so much. Any old pics that I see bring back that butterflies feeling in your stomach.”One of Fleetwood’s coaches as a teenager with England was Graham Walker. The Yorkshireman is now on Fleetwood’s team as short-game coach.And it’s this connection from his England amateur days that Fleetwood credits with taking his game to a new level.On the influence of Walker, named as England Golf coach of the year in 2019, Fleetwood said: “I wanted to improve my short game in 2016 and the first person that came to mind was Graham.“As the relationship has blossomed, he has taken me from someone who didn’t have a great short game to the point where I was leading scrambling stas on the PGA Tour.“I love his knowledge and passion and when you enjoy working with a coach it makes a  massive difference to how you learn.“I still live my England life through Graham by asking him about the current group of players and England events. I’m always supportive of what the guys are doing. If there are Home Internationals or Europeans on the go, I’m an England fan.”One lad coming through the England ranks is Dubai-based Josh Hill who last year became the youngest ever winner of a world ranking professional golf event aged just 15.Fleetwood presented England boys’ squad member Hill with his Guinness World Record certificate at the Abu Dhabi Championships in January and was happy to see another emerging English talent make headlines.He said: “It’s amazing really for a 15-year-old. To be fair, he’s a big lad and he didn’t look out of place at the tournament.“It’s great to see stuff like that. My dad was always keen for me to get into things as soon as possible. Josh has a great future and what he experienced at the age of 15 will do him the world of good.”Fleetwood followed on from Matt Wallace, Matt Fitzpatrick and Meg MacLaren in speaking to the squads. Danny Willett, Bronte Law, Chris Wood and Mel Reid are next in line to pass on their experience and wisdom. 6 May 2020 Fleetwood: England Golf grounding was launchpad for career Tags: England teams, Tommy Fleetwoodlast_img read more

Physical Therapy may be as Good as Surgery for Common Back…

first_imgFacebook71Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Penrose Physical Therapy“Physical therapy may work as well as surgery for easing symptoms of lumbar spinal stenosis, a common cause of nerve damage and lower back pain among older people, a study suggests.”Read more about the study here.“People in pain are poor decision-makers,” says the investigative journalist Cathryn Jakobson Ramin, author of a new book, Crooked: Outwitting the Back Pain Industry and Getting on the Road to Recovery.Approximately 80% of Americans experience back pain at some point in their lifetime with millions in chronic pain.  Many people are lost as to what to do and are taking unnecessary addictive opoids leading to tolerance to the drug causing the pain to escalate.  In some cases the increased pain is actually caused by the opoids.The truth is, as Ramin’s extensive research indicates, all that most people need to do is keep moving. At Penrose Physical Therapy we are committed to LISTENING to your story and get you moving in ways that are gradual.Also consider this: In a poll at a 2009 conference in Bonita Springs, Florida, 99 out of 100 surgeons who were asked whether they’d elect to have lumbar fusion surgery if it were recommended to them said “absolutely not.”Watch this video to learn some myths about back pain and the exercises people think help get a stronger “back.”You can also request a free tips report for low back pain on our website as well!
