  2. Olympians who died in 2018

    Walter Bahr (USA-Football-1948) When Walter Bahr walked off the field in Brazil after the famous United States victory over England at the 1950 World Cup, he didn't expect to become a soccer celebrity. Known for many years as the father of two NFL placekickers, Bahr regained prominence in his own right when the Americans returned to soccer's showcase in 1990 after a 40-year-absence. The last living player from that 1950 team, Bahr died Monday in Boalsburg, Pennsylvania, at age 91, according to granddaughter Lindsey D. Bahr, a film writer for The Associated Press. His death was caused by complications that resulted from a broken hip. "I say the older I get, the more famous I become," Bahr told the AP in 2010. "I wasn't for famous for 50 years." A team of soccer unknowns, the U.S. won 1-0 over an England side that included Alf Ramsey and Tom Finney, who earned knighthoods. "Walter Bahr was one of the greatest people to ever be part of soccer in the United States," former U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati said. "Not only was he a pioneer and a fantastic ambassador for our game over many years, he was a true gentleman." Bahr was portrayed by Wes Bentley in the 2005 movie "The Game of Their Lives." "A true legend in soccer in the United States," USSF President Carlos Cordeiro said. "His contribution to one of the most iconic moments in U.S. soccer history was only part of a lifetime of selfless contributions to the game. As a coach, a mentor, a friend, and a colleague, Walter touched the lives of so many people in our sport, ensuring a legacy that will last for generations." Quick with a story, a laugh and a smile, Bahr started all three U.S. matches at the 1950 World Cup. A defender who scored one goal in 19 international appearances, made his international debut in a World Cup qualifier against Cuba in 1949, joining a national team that had lost its seven previous international matches by a combined 45-2. The Americans tied Cuba 1-1 in his debut, lost to Mexico, then beat Cuba as Bahr scored and earned a trip to the 1950 tournament in Brazil. The U.S. wasted a late lead to Spain in its opener and lost 3-1. England was coming off a win over Chile. "We knew we weren't in the same class as the English team," Bahr said. "But anybody worth their salt when they go out onto the field, they always think there's some possibility that something can happen, that they could steal a victory." In the match at Belo Horizonte on June 29, 1950, Bahr collected a throw-in from Ed McIlvenny and took a shot from about 25 yards that Joe Gaetjens deflected past goalkeeper Bert Williams with a diving header late in the first half. Frank Borghi had some spectacular saves that made the lead stand up. "As much as we were very thrilled and pleased to win the game, most of us felt the same way: 'How's that English club going to go back home and face their fans?'" Bahr said. "It was a lot easier for us to explain the victory than for them to go back and explain that defeat." Born on April 1, 1927, Bahr was a graduate of Temple University and part of the 1948 U.S. Olympic team. He won American Soccer League titles with the Philadelphia Nationals in 1950, '51, '53 and '55 and with Uhrik Truckers in '56. Bahr coached the Philadelphia Spartans from 1958-63 and the Philadelphia Ukrainians from 1964-69, then became Temple's coach from 1970-73. He coached Penn State to 12 NCAA tournament appearances from 1974-88, leading the Nittany Lions to the semifinals in 1979, when he was United Soccer Coaches College Coach of the Year. He was inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame with the entire 1950 team in 1976. He is survived by his wife 71 years, the former Davies Uhler; daughter Davies Ann Desiderio, and sons Matt, Chris, and Casey. All three sons played in the North American Soccer League, and Chris played in 1976 Olympic qualifiers. Matt and Chris each won two Super Bowls.

    Maybe with 48 teams in the World Cup we could have more unusual tournaments. Maybe half the tournament in Spain, the other half in Morocco but the final in Paris? Or half in Argentina, half in Colombia, final in Sao Paolo? Half in India, half in China, final in Hong Kong?

    Which is sad. Some of the people here who follow the sport of cricket may remember his father, Winston Benjamin, who was a fast bowler for Antigua and the West Indies.
  12. 2018 Mediterranean Athletics U23 Championships

    I read that British and German Muslim athletes can postpone Ramadan fasting for some months if they get permission from their Imam to make up for it later in the year. Is that not possible in Algeria or is this championship not important enough to do that?
  13. Doping Cases and Bans Thread (2018)

    I think we have a prize winner in the "Most stupid doper of all time" category. Iuri Dudoglo was born in Moldova. He competed for Moldova in weightlifting from 2009 to 2013 the moved to Azerbaijan. In his 1st championship for Azerbaijan he fails a drug test and is banned for 2 years (2013-2015). He then moves back to Moldova and competes for then between 2015 and 2017 before failing another drug test at the 2017 European Championships. Because it's a second offense he gets an 8 year ban. He can return when he's 34 in 2025, But the IWF keep him on their testing list (I guess because he doesn't announce his retirement). So this year, 7 years before he can return to competition he fails another test.... This time it will be a life ban...

    This is slightly off the subject but Farah himself does not like it when people say he is from Somalia. He was born in the capital of Somalia but his family comes from Somaliland which wants independence from Somalia He is seen is this video with the flag of Somaliland. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvkWQ3fp6NU https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Somaliland https://ar.wikipedia.org/wiki/صوماليلاند

    If the IAAF change his nationality to French I will change it here immediately.
  18. Doping Cases and Bans Thread (2018)

    I agree it's a little unfair to list him as Algerian not French. He's completely part of the French athletics system and, though his parents seem to come from Algeria, he doesn't seem to have a connection to Algeria. Unfortunately in this case the IAAF definitely say he opted to run for Algeria, https://www.athleticsintegrity.org/downloads/pdfs/notifications-and-sanctions/en/May-Sanctions-List-FULL.pdf see page 10. And I can't really overrule them. They make the rules... MOSBAH Habib Athlete ALG M Long Distance (3000m+) Doping IAAF Rule 32.2 (a) IAAF Rule 32.2 (b) EPO 04/02/2018 4 years ineligibility
