The precision of the wurzburg butchers

The precision of the wurzburg butchers

There he stood and looked. Berlin’s dashaun wood raised his eyebrows, plucked his headband, and loved to hang his arms. A pass of maybe five, six meters had just flown an arm’s length past the berlin playmaker and landed somewhere in the vip area. Marko simonovic had passed, but he turned the palms up: innocent. Wood trotted back. The game was decided. 15 minutes before the end, a 49:29 score was flashing from the scoreboard. Alba berlin was trailing in wurzburg. Unassailable. Even wurzburg’s coach john patrick couldn’t help grinning: "we defended very well today and are now looking forward to the chance in berlin."

The wurzburgers were at the mercy of the berliners for 40 minutes, attacked early and alba never got into the game.

Butcher basketball, berlin’s manager marco baldi had already accused the wurzburgers at the first meeting, because of the hard play of the underfranconians, who already start defending at the opponent’s baseline and just don’t give any rest. Only heiko schaffartzik (17 points) scored for alba and at least preserved the hope for the turnaround for alba. But every time the break threatened, the baskets hit their threes through ben jacobson and ivan elliott, or alex king scored via alley oop. "This was one of our best games from the three line", said john patrick. His opponent gordon herbert could hardly find words after the defeat of his team. Long pauses between the sentences, a sip from the water bottle, silence. "Their intensity was much better than ours", said herbert. The alba coach had little more to do than watch his playmaker dashaun wood: look and marvel at what the wurzburgers accomplished in their 79:66 playoff win over berlin.

Boxing day: fc liverpool in top match at leicester

Boxing day: fc liverpool in top match at leicester

Jurgen klopp still unusually cold to the fubball christmas hustle and bustle. The burden of the club world cup in qatar? The tight program at the turn of the year? "It’s all good," said the liverpool FC coach, inspired by success, when asked about the exertions.

This was not the case in previous years either. Klopp complained about the high costs at the turn of the year. On boxing day (9 p.M., DAZN), the leaders of the premier league will take on their closest rivals, leicester city, who are ten points behind.

For leicester coach brendan rodgers, on the other hand, the english soccer program at the turn of the year is simply "nonsense. Similarly clearly klopp had expressed it in the previous years also. "The players are not robots, this is not a computer game," rodgers now said of the tight schedule. On saturday, a 3:1 defeat at manchester city, on the second holiday against klopp, two days later at west ham united and on new year’s day at newcastle – breathless through the christmas season.

Favorite sports rank 6: swimming

30 years ago, little stefan didn't eat bratwurst, who did: whether his brother thomas was today's record world champion in open water swimming? But this is how the success story of the wurzburg family lurz began at the water polo players' barbecue stand. Stefan got a sausage there because he promised to drop in on the training of the wurzburg swimming club. He started with water polo, later decided to swim and soon dragged his little brother thomas along with him. Decades later, he would win a series of world championship titles and olympic medals. Animated and trained to high performance by: stefan.

Master thomas is in the water again, so only stefan is available for an interview.

Mohsin case: he is allowed to do an apprenticeship

mohsin case: he is allowed to do an apprenticeship

"The company has been very patient", says gabi geisel in the direction of benedikt raab and thomas polzer. Mohsin tariq nods vigorously. It’s been more than two years since he completed an internship at the raab company in ebensfeld (district of lichtenfels). And even then, training supervisor thomas polzer was convinced of the young man’s merits and wanted to give him the apprenticeship he was longing for. The problem: tariq was expelled from pakistan and was not allowed to take up the apprenticeship just like that. What’s more, he was threatened with deportation.

He had always fulfilled everything that the foreign authorities demanded of him. He came to zapfendorf as a 13-year-old. He is very well integrated here, was second in his regular class at the qualifier, is involved in the village and in basketball. And yet, it is only thanks to the commitment of member of the state parliament holger dremel (CSU) that tariq can now start his apprenticeship and stay here for another three years.

Gabi geisel and mohsin tariq have fought long and hard for the 19-year-old to finally be able to complete his training. "They stole two years of his life", finds gabi geisel. The breakthrough finally came with the intervention of dremel, who informed the minister of the interior about this special case. At the same time, with gabi geisel’s help, tariq submitted a petition to the bavarian state parliament. Through the office of the deputy, they remained in contact on the matter. Dremel and his office in scheblitz put in their best efforts.

New roller sports facility is being built in bischofsheim

New roller sports facility is being built in bischofsheim

The groundwork for the new roller sports facility next to the open-air swimming pool in bischofsheim has already begun. Now mayor georg seiffert met with alexander zeller (government of lower franconia/city building department), the planner, the representative of the responsible construction company and those active on site for a first inspection, a kind of symbolic ground-breaking ceremony.

The mayor began by recalling the original push for the facility, which began six years ago with a petition to his predecessor, udo baumann. Leopold bott wished for a kind of a skater park. The topic was not forgotten, but also not immediately implemented. "We then took it up, and an unbelievable dynamic has emerged.", seiffert recalled the first meetings with interested young people, the two youth representatives of the city council patrick bauer and benjamin lenhardt, and as a technical specialist siegfried neumann from RWV haselbach.

Total costs of around two million euros

It quickly became clear that the plans and wishes were more far-reaching than a few solo elements for skaters. The idea of the rollersport facility was born. Otherwise, the name is just a kind of working title, seiffert remarked. Perhaps in the course of the next few months another name will be found. The government of lower franconia was won over as a sponsor, and with planning office DSGN concepts from munster, a specialist office that is dedicated to precisely this topic. From the "smaller cities and communities" urban development program (with means of the federation and free state of bavaria) the city of bischofsheim gets 80 percent demand, with total costs of approximately two million euro.
