Equestrian: Dissatisfied drivers Chardon still participates in the World Cup
11.39: Drivers IJsbrand and Bram Chardon will participate in World Cup driving next month. Father and son Chardon initially threatened to boycott the event, as they are not happy with the choice of the complex to its Australian competitor Boyd Exell in Valkenswaard as an alternative venue. But both drivers have now let national coach Ad Aarts know they want to participate.
The World Cup was originally scheduled to take place in the village of Kronenberg in Limburg in early September, but the organization decided in April to return to the event due to the corona crisis. Australian Exell, which took the individual gold at the last five World Cups and has been the biggest competitor for the Dutch four-in-hand for several years, then offered to hold the World Cup in its spacious complex in North Brabant. Both the Dutch federation KNHS and the international federation FEI agreed.
Four-time world champion IJsbrand Chardon (59) and his son Bram (27) think it is not fair that it is right at the Exell complex that the world title for the team and the individual is fought for. Together with Koos de Ronde, they try to win the team competition between 7 and 11 October in Valkenswaard. At the last World Cup, two years ago in the USA, the orange team had to settle for silver.
Mark Weusthof, Edwin van der Graaf and Peter de Ronde, Kooss’ brother, also take part in the individual four-in-one competition.
Football: Red JC without suspended coach Streppel
10.43: Roda JC will play the away match against FC Eindhoven next week without coach Jurgen Streppel on the bench. Streppel has been suspended in a match by KNVB, as he was sent to the stands shortly after each other against FC Dordrecht (4-0) with two yellow cards.
Streppel had to leave due to persistent comments about the arbitration. With a 3-0 lead, Roda’s coach was angry at the red card that his striker Erik Falkenburg had received. That gives him a suspension for the next match, on Tuesday 29 September against FC Eindhoven.
Falkenburg rejected a settlement proposal for four duels, one of which was conditional. The disciplinary committee will now consider the matter.
With nine points from four matches, Roda JC is in third place in the Kitchen Champion Division.
Ice Hockey: German Leon Draisaitl best player in the NHL
7.44: Not an American or a Canadian, but the German Leon Draisaitl has been named the best ice hockey player in the NHL. The 24-year-old Edmonton Oilers freight forwarder received the most votes in the election among ice hockey journalists. In addition to the Hart Memorial Trophy for the Most Valuable Player (MVP), Draisaitl also received the Ted Lindsay Award, the award that the NHL Players Association awards annually to the star of the year.
The ice hockey player from Cologne scored 110 points in the regular competition: 43 goals and 67 assists. Draisaitl already received the Art Ross Trophy for the NHL’s top scorer.
“This is a great honor,” said Draisaitl, the second German after Dirk Nowitzki to be named MVP in a major American sports competition. Basketball player Nowitzki was the NBA’s most valuable player during the 2006-2007 season. “This is very nice for me personally. But nothing beats winning the Stanley Cup, says Draisaitl. “If I could swap those two Stanley Cup prizes, I would do it right away.” The Edmonton Oilers were eliminated early in the playoffs this season.
