Adidas to end IAAF sponsorship deal early in wake of doping crisis - BBC Sport
Earlier this month, the commission's chairman, Dick Pound, delivered a second, damning report, which revealed that "corruption was embedded" within the IAAF under former president Lamine Diack. Within days, a decision at the highest level in Adidas was taken to terminate the relationship. It is understood the German multinational believes the doping revelations in Pound's reports constitute a breach of its agreement with the IAAF. The 11-year sponsorship deal was signed in 2008 and was due to run until 2019. At the time of signing, it was reported the deal would be worth about $33m (£23m). But sources have told the BBC the figure is much higher, and that in terms of cash and product, it is worth about $8m (£5.6m) per year. This would mean the projected lost revenue for the IAAF over the next four years will be more than $30m (£21m). //&! Unglaubwürdig. - bit.ly/1lLsDjd

Athletics doping crisis: Secret plan to delay naming Russian cheats - BBC Sport
A senior figure at athletics' world governing body was planning to delay naming Russian drug cheats in the run-up to the 2013 World Championships. The plan is outlined in an email from IAAF deputy general secretary Nick Davies to Papa Massata Diack. Diack, who worked as an IAAF marketing consultant at the time, is the son of former IAAF president Lamine Diack. Davies wrote he needed to "sit down" with the anti-doping team to discuss "Russian skeletons in the cupboard".

Hildebrand: Nein, dafür sehe ich keine Anzeichen. Aber was mich schon besorgt, ist das Muster, dass frappantes Fehlverhalten europäischer Firmen immer wieder von amerikanischen Behörden aufgedeckt wird. Das scheint mir das wahre Problem zu sein. Ich denke da nicht nur an VW, sondern auch an die Banken oder an die Fifa. [...] Die Amerikaner dagegen sind das Problem schon 2009 angegangen, und die Banken sind schnell wieder gesundet. In Europa hat man es unter den Teppich gekehrt. [...] Europa hat zwei Probleme, und ein wesentliches davon ist ein Nachfrageproblem: Die Wirtschaft ist nicht ausgelastet, auch die Arbeitslosigkeit ist nach wie vor zu hoch. Und die Inflation liegt nahe null. [...] Europa hat auch ein Strukturproblem. Arbeits- und Produktmärkte sind überreguliert.

With Turf, Women See Unequal Footing - NYTimes.com
The fight here is not really about the downside of artificial turf, of which there are many. The ball rolls faster and straighter and bounces higher on turf than on grass, and sliding is a hazardous proposition, since synthetic turf causes more friction than grass. As the knees, elbows and chins of soccer players everywhere will divulge, the turf can peel back layers of skin, and it may cause concussions because it tends to be less forgiving than grass.

Netherlands to Continue In World Cup Despite Doping Scandal - National Report | National Report
On Saturday and Sunday, FIFA officials administered random drug tests to all of the participants in the 2014 World Cup, and during those tests, it was revealed that six players from the Netherlands and one player from Belgium have tested positive. “These seven players, whom we will not identify, have tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.  It is a shame, a real shame,” says Dr. Giorgio Bertolucci, the FIFA official in charge of drug testing. “We have privately issued fines to each of the players, and will monitor them closely to ensure they do not cheat in the future.  The clubs have also been fined, and three fitness staff, two from Netherlands and one from Belgium, have been expelled from these games.”

Australia and Japan’s bids had seemed the biggest threat, but few had seriously entertained the idea that Qatar, a footballing desert, could win. “Clinton was fuming,” said one well-placed source. “He felt humiliated and felt the decision did not make sense.”
