Bronze for rider Van Liere at World Dressage Championships

8.17 pm: Dressage rider Dinja van Liere has won the bronze medal in the Grand Prix Special at the world championships in Herning, Denmark. With her horse Hermes she achieved a score of 79.407.

The victory went to Charlotte Fry. The British came with Glamourdale to 82.508. The Danish Cathrine Laudrup-Dufour was good for silver. With Vamos Amigos she achieved a total of 81,322.

Van Liere (31), debutante at the World Cup, already became national champion with Hermes earlier this year. Last year she already won the top competition in Aachen. She missed the Tokyo Olympics due to an administrative error by the international federation FEI, which could not be rectified in time.

Emmelie Scholtens finished in 14th place with Indian Rock, Thamar Zweistra was 20th with Hexagon’s Ich Weiss.

The dressage team already qualified for the Olympic Games in Paris in the weekend at the Nations Cup. The formation finished fifth in the standings. A place in the top six was sufficient for qualification for the 2024 Games in the capital of France.

In dressage, the freestyle is also on the program in Herning. The Dutch team misses Edward Gal, among others, who does not race for a year.

Fraser-Pryce impresses with victory at 100 meters in Hungary

7:47 pm: Athlete Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce has once again impressed in the 100 meters. The 35-year-old Jamaican won the distance at the World Athletics Continental Tour in Szekesfehervar in Hungary in a time of 10.67 seconds.

It was the fourth time this year that Fraser-Pryce came to 10.67 seconds in the sprint distance. Last month she won the world title in the 100 meters for the fifth time at the World Athletics Championships in Eugene. Last weekend she even reached 10.66 in competitions in Poland. Fraser-Pryce’s personal best is 10.60.

Only five women have ever run faster than 10.67 in the 100 meters, including the American world record holder Florence Griffith-Joyner. She came to 10.49 in 1988. Griffith Joyner passed away in 1998.

Stybar has to leave Quick-Step and is looking for a new team

12:41 pm: Zdenek Stybar is looking for a new squad. The 36-year-old Czech is due to leave Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl at the end of the year.

Stybar finished second in the Tour of Leuven on Sunday. He has never made the top 10 in a competition this year. The Czech has been driving for the Belgian formation of manager Patrick Lefevere since 2011.

“I have been told that I am not allowed to sign,” Stybar said in the Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad. “But I still want to keep racing. I don’t know if there is any interest given my age and health problems,” said the Czech, who suffered from heart problems last year.

Stybar won Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and the E3 Classic three years ago. He wrote Strade Bianche to his name in 2015. Stybar also wants to show himself as a cyclo-cross rider in the winter.

Runners argue for earlier start of the European Championship marathon due to heat

12.09 o’clock: About fifty athletes have called on the organization of the European Athletics Championships in Munich via an open letter to bring forward the start time of the marathon. The marathon for both women and men is scheduled for next Monday and the temperature in the German city is expected to rise to well above 30 degrees Celsius that day. The start of the women’s race is at 10.30 am, the men will start their race over 42.195 kilometers an hour later.

The German athletes’ union has called on the organization in an open letter, signed by about fifty athletes from various countries, to start the marathon earlier in the day because it is a bit cooler then. One Dutch participant, 23-year-old Tom Hendrikse, had his name put under the letter.

“It is the organizer’s job to protect the health of the athletes,” said German runner Fabienne Königstein, head of the athletes’ union. “We all want the marathon to attract as large an audience as possible and that is why it is of course important that the race is broadcast on TV. But those considerations should not lead to health risks for the athletes.”

According to the athletes, the objections previously expressed against the late starting time have been set aside for the time being. “We don’t feel like the organizers are going to change their minds, so we’re making our wish public now.”

With Nienke Brinkman, the Netherlands has a medal candidate in the marathon. Brinkman (28) finished second in Rotterdam in April and dived with 2.22.51 almost a minute below the nineteen-year-old Dutch record of Lornah Kiplagat. Her name is not on the letter.

British cyclist Hayter extends contract with Ineos Grenadiers

11.37 am: Ethan Hayter has extended his contract with Ineos Grenadiers until the end of 2024. The 23-year-old Briton has been cycling for the British squad since 2020 and has since celebrated 16 victories. Last week he won the Tour of Poland.

“My goal is clear,” Hayter says on his team’s website. “I want to win more WorldTour races, go for my chances at the World Cup and get some big laps in my legs. I believe I am in the best environment to remain successful.”

Ineos Grenadiers last week already extended the contract with Filippo Ganna until the end of 2027. The two-time world time trial champion has been cycling for the British cycling team since 2019. Before that he played for UAE Team Emirates for two years.
