Kolkata: India's fast bowlers have a rare moment in the sun after uniting to dismantle Bangladesh in the first day and night test on Indian soil.Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, and Mohammed Shami led 19 of the Bangladeshi wickets to fall in Kolkata, which is rare in the subcontinent areas where spinners are ruling the field.The 17 wickets world record taken by pacemakers in a home test in 2017 against Sri Lanka, as well as in the gardens of Eden in Kolkata, was exceeded.In the first Pink Ball test for both sides, India beat Bangladesh by an innings and 46 races in just over two days to sweep the series."It has always been in the cards that pacers in India make the decision, but Bangladesh should be disappointed by the lack of implementation and the struggle of its batsmen," the former Indian batsman VVS Laxman wrote in The Times of India on Monday.Skipper Virat Kohli has been all praise for his pacers and said workload management was the key to keeping them in top shape."They have gained more experience, and now they are playing well," Kohli told reporters after India won the unilateral victory on Sunday."They are responsible for their own preparation, their physical shape and communication.We want you to be fresh for test cricket, and don't worry about anything else."They also feel confident that if they don't play, we have players in reserve to come and do the job if needed. So the strength of the bench helps us a lot too."The three-day run continued despite the absence of Jasprit Bumrah, a Yorker specialist who is recovering from a fractured back.Shami and Yadav took 24 wickets between them in India's 3-0 test in South Africa last month.The spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja threw a total of only seven overs against Bangladesh, who fell for 106 and 195."It often doesn't happen in India when the spinners barely turn their arms in the test match," Indian fast bowler Irfan Pathan wrote on Twitter.However, the real test of Indian team will come in January and February, when India plays two tests in New Zealand, a friendly sailor.Read More: IPL 2020 Auction: Players who could be released by franchises CSK, RR, RCB, MI, and others

The rule change is uneven because 'Big Six' - Liverpool, City, Chelsea, United, Arsenal, and Spurs - have high-quality bench power and can carry peer-to-peer alternatives.IFAB approved the FIFA proposal last month.As the Premier League prepares to restart on June 17, the authorities allowed five substitutions per match, instead of three, in the remaining nine rounds. However, there is a school of thought that changes will work for the great.Is the change in the mid-competition rule legal?Completely legal. Last month, the (IFAB) International Football Association Board approved the FIFA proposal and allowed for a temporary change to the remaining matches of the 2019-20 season. "IFAB agreed to make a temporary amendment to the laws of the game on the basis of a proposal received from FIFA seeking to protect the welfare of players," said the FIFA. Teams will have three chances to make these five replacements and will also be allowed to have nine players on the bench instead of seven. Some Bundesliga clubs used five substitutes after restarting.Why did FIFA suggest the change?FIFA has suggested this keeping in mind managing the player's workload during football after COVID-19. The three-month layoff period affects players' fitness. In addition, a tight schedule increases the risk of infection and there is a risk of excluding players if they become infected with the coronavirus. "The concern in this regard is that the frequency of matches is higher than normal, which may increase the risk of potential injury due to the player's overload," FIFA said in a statement.In the context of the Premier League, why is change so uneven?Simply because "Big Six" - Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur - have high classic bench strength and can withstand similar substitutes. Minor clubs, in terms of money, have no extra wealth. As reported by Telegraph Sport, Wolverhampton Wanderers only used 20 players in this period. Wolves are sixth on the table with 43 points and the change appears to be giving a clear advantage to their four main rivals such as United, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Spurs. Leicester City, currently third with 53 points, has used 21 players so far. United, on the other hand, used 25 in the Premier League, while Chelsea used 24.Has any club opposed change?Yes, Aston Villa, Bournemouth and West Ham United have reportedly voted against change. They are all caught in downhill scrap. For example, on July 1, West Ham is scheduled to play against Chelsea. Now, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has the option of resorting to players such as Antonio Rudiger, Ross Barkley, Callum Hudson-Odoi, or Olivier Giroud if he wants to spin his players. On the other hand, Hammers manager David Moyes may have to resort to someone like Ben Johnson who has not yet played a minute in the Premier League this season.How did the change work in Bundesliga?The German Bundesliga has benefited from this in terms of workload management and intensity maintenance. "You can see in the first games that after 60 or 70 minutes, the players were really tired because there were no preparations or friendly matches." It was a really good thing. "We have avoided injuries," Simon Rolfs, sports director of Bayer Leverkusen, was quoted by the Telegraph Sport newspaper as saying.article source: indianexpressimg source: usa today postAlso Read: Premier League allows 5 substitutes when season restarts
Sony has noted in a press release that the "enhanced and expanded" versions of the current GTA 5 and GTA games online will be released in 2021. This was announced during the "Future of Games" event from Sony, confirming the launch of PlayStation 5. However, It did not show any screenshots of what the new version of the game would be like.Sony PS5, which started with the Rockstar logo, briefly revealed people's enthusiasm, to make everyone understand that the developer in the open world is relaunching the multifaceted action game, but for next-generation consoles. Of course, there will be bells and whistles, with Rockstar promising technical and optical improvements as well as performance improvements. However, after a few generations of the game itself, we are approaching diminishing returns for the new experiences that GTA 5 has to offer, and fans know it. Rockstar's decision here is clear, of course: GTA 5 was just one of its best years in 2019, and with the latest decision to briefly release the game for free, the player base will likely continue to explode. After all, Epic Games Store couldn't keep up with the volume of people trying to download GTA 5 for free in mid-2020. Why did this momentum stop just because the new consoles will be released in a few months?This hidden PS5 announcement was the biggest news that Rockstar would not only bring back GTA 5, but would also launch GTA Online as MMO as a standalone experience in 2021. Those who update will receive "new updates" and " exclusive content "and the player experience will be Multiplayer. It will be free on PS5 for the first three months after launch. However, to entice people to start playing now, Rockstar says that all PlayStation Plus members will receive a million dollars in the game every month that signs in to play GTA Online. While no details are shared, these vague promises actually seem more substantial, in terms of content, than any improvements made to the main part of the game.Read More: Online Games: Top 10 Most Popular Online Games in 2020Rumor has it that Rockstar's next big project is in its early stages of development, so there is something to expect, perhaps with real storytelling. But if GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 were any indication, then what Rockstar would launch would then probably share a similar strategy: launching a massive game that could stand on its own, but ultimately served as a drug to monetize the multiplayer experience. Multiplayer will be supported for years and will potentially become a major source of income. Meanwhile, solo discount: GTA 5 may be on sale permanently, if not delivered for free, as evidenced by the appearance of Red Dead Redemption 2 on Xbox Game Pass.It's not wrong that Red Dead Redemption 2, even after having sold it very well, did not receive solo extensions, but many updates online. It's no mistake that GTA 5 hasn't received any updates for a single player, but it has so much content for GTA Online that it could soon be presented as a standalone experience.While Rockstar argues that the lack of additions for the single-player was "not a conscious choice" when it comes to GTA 5, it followed the same approach when it came to the West. In the case of Red Dead Redemption 2, a long-term online goal was planned, according to a developer last year. why not? By accepting Special Take-Two, the multiplayer chips of these two games contribute to more than half of the company's revenues.GTA Online independently reports a change, although it has been going on for years. By breaking away from the single-player mode, Rockstar opens up many different possibilities that are not dictated by basic game restrictions. Who knows what GTA Online will look like in two years? At this point, fans who request solo additions may be in the minority in the face of the number of people playing and spending money on Rockstar's multiplayer worlds.Read More: Free Online Games?

To master all swimming strokes, you must make an effort in your training regimen. If you don't train properly, you won't simply be able to shave those critical seconds or even parts of a second of your time.Remember that in a competitive sport of this nature, the least amount of time can be the difference between taking a winner’s cup home.Since there is no doubt that you want to be placed first, let's take a look at how competitive and recreational swimmers can improve the front crawl technique.1. Focus on your breathing When it comes to perfecting your front call technique, you need to consider all the factors that can make a difference in your overall performance.Obviously, how you use your arms, legs, head, and core strength will have an effect. However, breathing is also one of the primary areas that will make a difference.Once you feel comfortable with the front crawl technique, take the time to focus only on your breathing. Notice how you are currently breathing and try to adapt to the following method.You should breathe on alternate sides during every third hit. To allow you to successfully ingest the right amount of air, place your ear on your shoulder and cheek on the surface of the water.By doing this, you won't consume much air (or very little) before you need to return to the surface.2. Use the correct head positionThe more efficient you are, the better you become. To stay efficient in the front-crawl position, you must keep your head still and in line with your body.Also, remember to make sure that the water level is between the eyebrows and the hairline when you are in motion.With your head in the pool, keep looking forward and down. We strongly recommend wearing swimming goggles to protect your eyes from chlorine and dirt.You don't want your head to be too low or too high because this will create more tension in your neck and make it difficult for you to swim.3. Ensure adequate arm workWith the front crawl style, your arms should always rotate and be continuous to maintain steady movement. Also, when all hands enter the water, you should do this between the central line of the head and the shoulder line.Make sure to look to see if you are raising your arm above your head in the correct position, and if not, adjust it accordingly.The hands should also be tilted with the palm facing down, while the elbows should be folded and positioned slightly above the hand during each stroke.Your hands must be stretched in front of you first before holding and pulling it onto a large paddle surface of your hand. During this stage, you should push your hands towards the pool floor. Keep your fingers together, too, as this will create a more efficient surface area.With practice, you can build strength and move smoothly through the water.4. Create a simplified bodyKeep your body parallel to the water and create a possible flat profile. This will make it more efficient and reduce resistance.Your lower body should also be placed on a good level. If it is too low or too high, this will require you to work harder and consume more energy.To avoid this, place your back just below the surface and try to maintain a steady position when competing.If your body stays in the same place, it will be much easier to work on the arms and kicking technique, rather than losing focus when trying to hold yourself properly. 5. Master your kickFirst, keep your feet and ankles as relaxed as possible to get the best front crawl kick. If it is stiff, you will lose the flowing motion you want. It is also recommended to kick legs from the hips alternately with six kicks to one arm. This will help balance your body. Most importantly, never kick your knees as this will break your profile and slow you down.Remember, most of the thrust you use with this stroke comes from your arms and upper body. However, if your legs are not too low in the water and your heels break the surface, this will also improve the front crawl style dramatically.Finally, keep your legs close together. If they are far apart, it will create more resistance.img source: wikipediaAlso Read: Check out five significant types of swimming styles!
The NFL Preseason was reduced from four games to two games in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.While there are factions in professional football, whether, at the league or union level or even spectators, who prefer eliminating the exhibition season, Houston Texans defensive end JJ. Watt cannot decide whether or not to put an end to the preseason."If the [NFLPA] doctors and doctors decide it is not in the best interests of players safety to get it, then we don't have to," said Watt. "But at the same time, I also think about the unselected players, the men who make a list in the fourth season match, how special this number is, and how many opportunities they will miss in that." So I'm on either side of the fence. "As a previous selection in the first round of 2011, Watt's representatives and their place on the list were not in doubt. After his second season, when he received the first honor of the three best players to defend in the National Football League, Watt got the privilege of waving farewell throughout the pre-season if necessary."I think it's normal for me to work as a vet, do I think the season games for someone in my situation are absolutely necessary? I would say I don't think so. But I think there are a lot of people who need these opportunities and live for these opportunities," said Watt. I mean, it could literally change lives. "An example of a prehistoric star in recent memory is Vyncint Smith from Limestone College in 2018. The free unselected agent mad a good impression and landed in the list of 53 men roster. In week 16, Smith got a pass from midfielder Deshaun Watson in an attempt to organize a return against the Philadelphia Eagles that ultimately fell short. Smith is now with New York Jets."So I see the other side where someone can make their whole dream come true, thanks to these games," said Watt. "So it is a very difficult debate."The answer may be more common practices, but the implementation of any alternative idea is pending as the world recovers from the epidemic.Also Read: NFL Preseason Games: What to expect if the NFL has a two-match preseason in 2020

Teqball, a new simple, and brilliantly fun soccer game revolutionize the world of football. All soccer stars, major football clubs, and national teams have been infected with the teqball virus. Teqball's Jirjili Morani talks about the challenges associated with developing this new sport, and the role that intellectual property (IP) plays in enhancing the company's ambitions to promote and ultimately transform the sport globally. In an Olympic sport.What was the inspiration for Teqball?Teqball, the company, was founded by Gábor Borsányi, Gyuri Gattyán, and Viktor Huszár. Gabor, the creative force of the team, came up with this idea when he was a professional young soccer player. When he couldn't reach a soccer field, he and a friend were training to pass a soccer ball across one of the many table tennis tables outside apartment buildings in Budapest. Later on, he realized that by simply adding a curve to the top of the table, he could create a more fun game, which we call teqball.So what exactly is Teqball?Teqball is the company responsible for developing an innovative sports product for use in an emerging soccer-based sport, which can be played by both professionals and amateurs, including people with disabilities. The game combines the fast speed of table tennis with soccer skills and excitement. One of the great advantages of teqball is that you don't need a team of people to play, you just need a friend. We call it teqball because you need technology to play and you can play it with regular football.The company was founded in 2014 and is headquartered in Budapest, Hungary, where our R&D center is located. We employ around 130 people, compared to 38 last year, many of them under the age of 30. The main goal of the company is to create value through the power of sport. This is what drives us.So is teqball rules exclusive for soccer?When we started developing teqball, we were very focused on soccer, but in reality, you can play five different games at the Teqball table: teqball, teqis, teqpong, qatch and teqvoly. At the moment, teqball is the most advanced. For example, the various teqball cups we organize are focused on soccer. In the future, we plan to develop other games in individual sports majors and organize Teq games where athletes can compete in all Teq sports. That would be a great event.Tell us more about teqball rules.The Teqball table is roughly the size of a table tennis table but has a curved surface and a solid mesh for the ball to bounce if not hit properly. This means that players can only rely on their skills and abilities. There is no luck in the game. All you need is an opponent at the other end of the table to start the game. It is a great way for soccer fans to develop their technical skills, focus, and stamina.Teqball is the only training method in the world that gives players a high level of contact with the ball. That's why football players take them. There are a large number of international footballers who already play football in their spare time, with no incentive for us to improve their skills in handling the ball or just for fun. It is also very good for heating and cooling. We have created a series of training to ensure players get the most out of their soccer experience and can develop their soccer skills on the field with our equipment.Our intellectual property is our most valuable asset, and protecting it gives us the freedom to build new business relationships without fear of endangering our intellectual property assets.And your product range?We have Teqball ONE, which is extremely durable, sturdy, and floor standing. Municipalities use it in public parks and we use it in professional football competitions. We also have a small portable version called Teqball SMART, which is perfect for schools. And later this year, we will launch a more expensive version, which will sell for around 700 euros; It is much easier and allows us to greatly increase our production capacityWas creating a curved table a challenge?Developing a table with a flat surface is simple, but creating a curved table that is completely soft, lightweight, quiet, and easy to assemble and ship presents a number of difficult technical challenges.Finding the right materials and the best way to put everything together took a lot of research, experimentation, and patienceAlso Read: Pickleball RulesHow did you get people interested in teqball and about teqball rules?At first, it was hard to convince people to try the game, but once they did, they became addicted. We share it with all our knowledge of the football world. We knew we needed to get to a point where people would see their favorite soccer stars playing soccer and using our gear. Now many of the best soccer players and soccer clubs, including Barcelona, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Chelsea, and national teams are playing teqball. They started playing spontaneously, without any sales promotion from us, because they really enjoyed playing the game. This really helped boost teqball's popularity as a sport.Earlier this year, Teqball was officially recognized by the Asian Olympic Committee as a sport. This is a big step forward for us as it means teqball is now an official sport in 45 Asian countries. It also paves the way for teqball's inclusion in the upcoming Asian Games, the world's second-largest sporting event.How did you establish football as a professional sport?Once we decided to promote it as a professional sport, we realized the need to create an association to oversee teqball governance, and in 2017, FITEQ, Teqball's international federation, was created. It is based in Lausanne, Switzerland. We started this process shortly before the first Teqball World Cup kicked off in 2017 in Hungary. An indication of the rapid growth in popularity of the sport is that 20 countries participated in the Teqball World Cup 2017 in Hungary, and the Teqball World Cup 2018 in Reims, France, in which 42 countries participated.At what point did you realize the importance of intellectual property?When we came up with the idea of teqball, it was clear that we needed to protect it. Because of its simplicity, anyone can copy the idea. So we understood the importance of intellectual property from the start. We have ensured that all potential partners have signed well-regulated confidentiality agreements (NDAs) and have taken steps to protect the schedule design and other technical elements. To date, we have sought protection in about 50 different countries and made use of the various cost-effective filing and registration systems offered by WIPO, including the PCT and the Hague System for International Design Registration. Industrial, to do so.Our intellectual property is our most valuable asset, and protecting it gives us the freedom to build new business relationships without fear of endangering our intellectual property assets. Intellectual property rights are essential to our future business plans in terms of creating a global network for the manufacture and distribution of our tables to ensure that sports fans who want to play table tennis have access to our products at reasonable prices. In South America, for example, high import duties make our products very expensive. With a local Teqball table manufacturing and distribution partner, we can facilitate access to them at reasonable prices. We are already working with a partner in China for this. In Europe, our online store will be our main point of sale, as this will allow us to offer customers more flexible payment options (for example, down payment followed by monthly installments). We see this as an important way to make sport available and accessible to everyone. The real value to us is not the number of tables we sell, but the number of players we attract into the game. We sell sports and also bring fun to exercise. Intellectual property rights also play an important role in allowing us to promote and develop sport in the long term.How about the importance of care?In the medium term, we plan to develop brands for different teqball competitions, such as Teqball World Championship and Teqball World Series. Each of these competitions will need to be supported by an effective IP strategy to attract sponsors, the media, the best players, and, of course, the spectators. At the first Teqball Beach Games in Lupa Beach near Budapest in 2018, we have already signed sponsorship agreements with major companies like BMW and Hublot. Given the excitement surrounding the Teqball brand, our goal for the upcoming Teqball World Championship in 2019 and 2020 is to take Teqball sponsorship and teqball rules to a new level by expanding our sponsorship program to many first-class sponsors.Also Read: ISL ( Indian Super League ) 20-21 Updates

After Update 14.60, Fortnite players around the world have been testing the latest in Venom's legendary abilities. From its appearance, it has not only an innovative concept but a wide range with explosive power.In a recent video, creator and Twitch streamer SypherPK talked about the latest update and future of Fortnite.Venom's legendary ability "Smash & Grab" allows players to unleash a symbiotic arm that penetrates the environment, captures enemies, and lures them towards the player. It seemed like an arm could pass through buildings and SypherPK was stunned by its long arrival.To take advantage of the legendary ability, just visit the Quinjet Patrol Echo 2 and destroy some supply drones that eventually lose their capacity.A few weeks ago, Epic Games had secretly removed Groot's Bramble Shield and replaced it with a Thor Hammer. Interestingly, the latest update complies with this decision, as Groot's legendary ability is back in the game.SypherPK confirms its theory in Fortnite Season 5After Awesome Season 4, fan expectations for the upcoming Fortnite season have already skyrocketed. Additionally, Donald Mustard previously confirmed that the upcoming Galactus event will be "the biggest event in the game's history".However, SypherPK is adamant in its theory about Fortnite Season 5. The Streamer thinks the Marvel-Fortnite collaboration is far from over and both franchises have a lot to offer.In hindsight, SypherPK's claims make every sense. Fortnite has been harassing Galactus' arrival for a long time, and one event is unlikely to be enough to justify the entire buildup. According to the channel, Galactus will likely remain undefeated in the event, and Fortnite Season 5 will continue the Marvel storyline.Due to the efforts of SypherPK, fans have also witnessed the return of veterans like TimTheTatman and Nickmercs. Not only did former Fortnite creators enjoy their comeback, but they also promised to play Fortnite a lot.Without a doubt, the Marvel-themed fourth season did wonder for Epic Games. The game finally looks new, and the impressive Season 5 roadmap adds to it in a big way.Also Read: PUBG Unban in India | Latest News

Every fan is desperate for the Australian Open 2021 for one reason only. It is believed that the great Roger Federer will be back on the field after a year at Grand Slam. The excitement in the tennis world is at an all-time high and they want to welcome the Swiss master with open hands.Roger Federer suffered a knee injury at the Australian Open last year. The semi-final match against Novak Djokovic was the last professional tennis match he had ever played. Then he underwent two knee operations during the long period of rest due to the Coronavirus epidemic. The injury did not allow the legend to go out on the field all season.However, just a month after the Australian Open 2021, Roger Federer delivered some unfortunate news. The winner of the 20 Grand Slam decided to withdraw from the Grand Slam. It is definitely a heartbreaking moment for fans. However, they do realize Roger Federer may be back soon.Why is Roger Federer not playing the Australian Open 2021?Roger Federer's withdrawal from the Australian Open 2021 surprised fans. According to Craig Tilly, CEO of Tennis Australia, Roger Federer couldn't recover in time. The Swiss were definitely not feeling well and so he decided to retire. However, there were also some other claims.According to an Australian Open 2021 official, Roger Federer's decision was not to withdraw from the Grand Slam, but rather to the influence of his wife Mirka. The official further claimed that Roger Federer withdrew due to his family and quarantine issues, not due to injury.Roger Federer biographer Simon Graf described all of these claims as false and unfounded. It was believed Roger Federer would definitely have played in Grand Slam if he were completely fit.Whatever the reason, it is clear that world number five Roger Federer will not be playing in Melbourne now. It looks like the fans will have to wait a little longer to see the legend on the field again.When will Roger Federer return to the court?There is no official confirmation of Roger Federer's return at this time. However, Graf believes Roger Federer will definitely play the Dubai Tennis Championships in March 2021.Roger Federer certainly hasn't had an impressive record at the US Open or the French Open in the past decade. Since he's not playing in the Australian Open 2021 now, he's sure to be aiming for Wimbledon 2021 now.Also Read: Novak Djokovic is rejuvenating with his family before the Australian Open 2021

"The fifth Test of the India arrangement is expected to be held at Emirates Old Trafford between September 10-14. Lancashire has effectively pre-sold three entire days, and with a reasonable breeze among once in a while, would hope to sell the match out totally. "Moving the game at this late stage too prior in the season would make calculated cerebral pains for Lancashire, the ECB, and the England group, not to say those onlookers who have gone through cash and wanted to join in," he contemplated in his article.The BCCI, it is learned, has effectively begun chats with different sheets about the window between September 15 to October 15 with UAE being nearly focused in as the objective like 2020 version. "If there should arise an occurrence of World T20, the BCCI will not accept a call now however for every viable explanation and a normal third wave, the odds of the worldwide occasion occurring in the UAE post-IPL resembles a particular chance," the source said.Also read: BCCI Proposes To Launch England Tests In A Bid To Oblige The Rest Of IPL 2021

"(With) the hunger and the desire to be there... We have no problem having only four training sessions before the final."Indian cricketers Ajinkia Rahane, Umesh Yadav, and Ishant Sharma described the World Test Championship final as a draw for the World Cup final, and both Kohli and India coach Ravi Shastri agreed that what was in the making."For all of us, this is an accumulation of all the hard work of the past five or six years," Kohli said.Regardless of the size of the final match, teams will move from one biosecurity bubble to the next, and Kohli has spoken extensively about the impact of bubble cricket on the mental health of players."With the current structure (going from one vital bubble to the next), it's very difficult for players to stay motivated," Kohli said.“...Being confined to one area (it would be difficult)."Mental health (for players) will enter the picture. There is no space where you can disconnect from the game."The World Test Championship final will follow a series against England, who beat India 4-1 in the final round of 2018. With India winning the Test series in Australia in two back-to-back rounds on the road, could England be a definitive end?Not quite, said Kohli. "(The England series) is not a definitive end for us.

Lionel Messi finally signed his long-awaited contract with PSG on Tuesday night to complete the move and confirm the end of a long-term relationship with FC. Barcelona sends Paris Saint-Germain into a new era.Paris Saint-Germain said in a statement that the 34-year-old Argentine star had signed a two-year contract with the option for a third season. "I am excited to start a new chapter of my career at Paris Saint-Germain," said Messi. "Everything at the club matches my football ambitions. I know how talented the team and the coaching staff are here. I am determined to help build something special for the club and the fans, and I can't wait to stepping out onto the pitch at the parc des princes. Salary details were not disclosed, but a person familiar with the negotiations previously told The Associated Press that Messi will receive about 35 million euros ($ 41 million) from his net worth annually. The person said on condition of anonymity before signing the contract. "I am delighted that Lionel Messi has chosen to join Paris Saint-Germain and we are proud to welcome him and his family to Paris," said Nasser Al-Khelaifi president of Paris Saint-Germain. "He has made no secret of his desire to continue competing at the highest level and winning titles, and of course our ambition as a team is to do the same."Crowds of Paris Saint-Germain fans gathered at Paris Le Bourget airport to greet Messi, who wore a jersey with the slogan "Ici c'est Paris" ("This is Paris").The words are a longtime familiar refrain from a favored fan chant at Parc des Princes stadium, where Messi is to be presented to them before kickoff of Saturday night's game against Strasbourg. So excited was his arrival that police had to push him to prevent the airport's metal barriers from falling down as fans rushed forward to get a better view. He then traveled to Paris, escorted by a police escort, which included several officers on motorcycles, all dressed in black at the rear. When the disbelief of relegation to one of the greatest footballers of all time became a sensation, many gathered to catch a glimpse of Messi on the field. They got their wish when the smiling star briefly greeted them before undergoing a medical examination. Earlier, Messi's father and agent, Jorge, also confirmed that his son was moving to Paris Saint-Germain in a brief exchange with reporters at Josep Taradillas Barcelona's El Prat airport, before boarding his flight in afternoon.Messi arrived with his wife and his three children and boarded a private jet."With all that, towards a new adventure. All five together," said Antonella Roccuzzo on Instagram with a photo of her with her husband on the plane.PSG supporters have witnessed their club's transformation over the past decade since the arrival of sovereign investments from Qatar tied to the emir. Once Messi's contract with Barcelona expired and the Catalan club couldn't retain him, Paris Saint-Germain was one of the few clubs that was able to finance a deal to sign the world's best player six times.Messi's arrival gives Paris Saint-Germain massive attacking options, as he is linked with World Cup winner Kylian Mbappé and Brazilian forward Neymar.Neymar posted on Instagram a video of the two hugging and playing for Barcelona: "back together."While PSG had to pay 222 million euros (then $261 million) to sign Neymar from Barcelona in 2017, there was no transfer fee for Messi. Messi has become the most desiered free agent in football history after his attempts to stay at Barcelona were rejected last week by the Spanish League because his salary did not meet financial regulations, with the Catalan club heavily in debt. 1.2 billion euros (1.4 million dollars) And soon, Mauricio Pochettino, coach of Paris Saint-Germain, got in touch with his Argentine after Barcelona announced last Thursday that Messi would be leaving the club, he joined at age 13. Messi won every major title with Barcelona and was granted a emotional press conference on Sunday to mark the end of an era.Only Cristiano Ronaldo in the current era challenges Messi's status as the greatest of all time. Paris Saint-Germain is hoping not only that Messi will help the team regain the French title it lost to Lille last season, but that it will ultimately win the Champions League.If Pochettino used the 4-3-3 method, the three in front could see Messi on the right. What should be less demanding is Paris Saint-Germain's compliance with the UEFA Financial Fair Play Rules. Some flexibility in the rules has been provided due to the pandemic and the changes are due to the system that is designed to stop losses. Paris Saint-Germain President Al-Khelaifi,as President of the Association of European Clubs and a member of the UEFA Executive Committee, is involved in the process of discussing a broader update of the FFP that could once again allow a spending without control.

Messi won 34 club career trophies with FC Barcelona, including 10 La Liga titles and 4 Champions League titles.

Competing swimmers compete in a variety of swimming styles. The Butterfly and Butterfly Races are among the most anticipated events of the Olympic Games. But you don't have to be a professional or competitive swimmer to enjoy the benefits of swimming. Learn the benefits of different swimming styles so you can decide which way you want to perform on your lap in the pool.1.FreestyleFreestyle is probably the most popular swimming stroke. Here's what you need to know about this stroke and its benefits:Free multiplication methodFreestyle is also known as forward crawl. While swimming in this stroke, your body will be in a prone position with your stomach and face facing the water. Your arms and legs will propel you into the water, while your torso remains stationary. Your arms will rotate. One arm will come out of the water while the other will be turned upside down, close to your torso in the water. Each hand will enter the water at an angle, fingers straight and close together to reduce drag.As your arms push you forward through the water, your legs will also be working harder. You will use the flutter kick to complete the freestyle swimming technique. The flutter kick is achieved by constantly moving your feet under the water in a narrow, scissor-like motion. Your knees will be slightly bent, but your feet will remain relatively parallel to the surface below at all times. Depending on how fast you want to swim, you can adjust the number of kicks for each full circle of arm movement. Your legs are an important part of freestyle swimming, but keep in mind that they provide about 10 percent of the thrust in a practicing swimmer's body.The freestyle often looks intimidating to inexperienced swimmers because it requires you to put your face in the water. Once you get used to sticking your face in the water, breathing in a free cycle is relatively easy. When one of your arms rises out of the water, simply turn your face to the side and breathe in. With your hand lowered, lower your face back into the water. Some swimmers take turns when it comes to breathing, while others stay on one side.Benefits of Free SwimmingYou can burn hundreds of calories in just half an hour of freestyle swimming. What are the biggest benefits of this punch?The freestyle swim, a favorite among long-distance swimmers, is the most effective stroke. Freestyle takes you further than others without spending a lot of energy. If you prefer to set your swimming exercises to the number of laps, this will help you reach your goal faster.Freestyle also gives you a full-body workout. Work the muscles in your arms, legs, torso, and back. If you are looking for a special swimming technique to tone your back muscles, freestyle swimming is definitely the way to go.While the freestyle has many benefits, keep in mind that mastering the freestyle can be more challenging than mastering other options, such as breaststroke.2. BreaststrokeThe best swimming style is a matter of opinion. If you're swimming for the first time, breaststroke may be the easiest place to start. Brake bumps are a great option for anyone looking for a slower alternative to freestyle swimming. Here's what you need to know about the breaststroke technique and its benefits:Stroke TechniqueBreaststroke, like freestyle, involves different movements of the arms and legs. Your body is in the same horizontal position as during freestyle swimming, but you will use different motions to propel yourself through the water. Your arms at the same time will be in a semi-circular motion under the water. Your arms, bent at the elbows, will then join your chest, remaining underwater as you swim in this blow.As your arms move at this rate, your legs will speed you forward in a technique called the whip kick or frog kick. When performing this kick, your feet should be hip-width apart behind you. With your knees and feet bent, feet apart, then bring them back together to form a smooth line. Repeat this movement with the movement of the arm. The optimal cadence allows your hands to rest while kicking and vice versa.The last stage of the chest stroke is your breath. It is possible to complete the movement of the arms and legs for this stroke while keeping the head completely out of the water. If you want to add a breathing technique to complete the stroke, you will submerge your head under water for each cycle of the stroke. Use your shoulders to pull your head out Water and breath. As his arms move forward in the water, his shoulders fall completely and he dips his head back under the water.3. BackstrokeUnlike most other swimming strokes, your face will not be in the water during the backstroke. Instead, you'll be on your back in the water, as the name suggests. Here are some tips to improve your back technique and reap the benefits of this style:Backstroke TechniqueYou can think of backstroke as a mirror image of freestyle. It will face you in the water rather than face down. As you move your arms and legs, you will remain in this horizontal position while looking up. Your arms will propel you forward in a windmill-like motion. One hand will come out of the water and rise, and the other will move under you in the water. You will perform this movement alternately: one hand goes up and the other goes down. Keep your arms close to your ears as you fall into the water. Also, you'll want to keep your arms as straight as possible and your fingers together to reduce resistance. Try to prevent your hips from falling into the water. Excessive lowering of the hips will slow the forward movement.When your arms push you through the water, your legs will use the same pulsating strokes that you used during freestyle swimming. Your legs will bend slightly as you kick in a successive motion. You can set the pace of the kick depending on how fast you want to move.The beauty of backstroke is that you just need to focus on the movements of your arms and legs. There are no breathing techniques to worry about because your face is always above water.Benefits of BackstrokeSwimming in backstroke burns about 250 calories in 30 minutes. The pros and cons of swimming strokes often depend on what you look forward to from your time in the water. The back stroke offers many benefits in addition to other back strokes. For example, backstroke can help improve your posture because your muscles need to work to keep your back straight in the water. It can also help improve hip flexibility. Like other swimming strokes, these strokes will also work the muscles in your arms, legs, and torso.The position of the head is a small aspect of the back to consider. Because your line of sight is directed upward and not in front of you, some people are a little anxious about seeing where they go in the water. You can overcome this by counting the number of strokes needed to complete a lap.4. SidestrokeThe side kick can be performed alone or with the help of a kickboard. You may be less familiar with this punch because it is not used during competitive events. Here's a look at the techniques and benefits of stroke:Backstroke TechniqueAs the name suggests, you will swim with this stroke on your side. Begin by placing your body on one side of the water. Spread your arm forward in the water under that part of your body. The upper hand will rest on your body in a horizontal position. Place your head on an outstretched hand directly in front of you. Your head will not move from this position when you are swimming sideways. Since your face doesn't get into the water, you don't have to worry about breathing technique.Both arms move during the side kick. The arm extended in front of you is called the main arm. Your lead arm and the arm at your side will flow down through the water with your elbows bent. Your hands will meet in front of your chest and then straighten, returning to the starting position.During sidestroke, most of your forward momentum will come from your legs. You will move your legs using a scissor kick, which means your legs move back and forth beneath the water in an alternating motion. As you kick, your arms will move toward one another and then back to a straight position.Benefits of SidestrokeYou can burn more than 200 calories in 30 minutes of swimming on your side. While not a competitive strike, lifeguards often use the lateral strike to defend themselves in the water. So knowing how to swim on your side can come in handy if you have any emergency. You'll use the muscles in your arms and legs to propel yourself forward, while your core muscles work to maintain a smooth horizontal position in the water.From an exercise standpoint, the side strike allows you to keep your face above the water while working multiple muscle groups.From an exercise standpoint, the side strike allows you to keep your face above the water while working multiple muscle groups.5. ButterflyOf all the different swimming styles, the butterfly is perhaps the most challenging. The butterfly requires a lot of strength and coordination, which takes time to develop. Here's what you should know about this style of swimming:Butterfly Stroke TechniqueThis pattern is called a butterfly because of the way the swimmer's arms move while swimming. Your arms look like a pair of wings, rising in and out of the water together. Your body is in the same horizontal position required for breaststroke and freestyle swimming. Begin with your arms outstretched in front of you, and your thumbs facing the water. Move your arms down and out, keeping your elbows slightly bent. Your arms should form a Y in front of your body. Pull your arms back across the water parallel to your body. He will then pull them out of the water and start the cycle again.As your arms move through this circuit, your legs will continue to move using a technique called the dolphin kick. During a dolphin kick, your feet come together in a smooth line. Your feet together move up and down, propelling you forward in the water. As you kick, your heels and the soles of your feet will break the surface of the water. You'll kick as soon as your arms get into the water and slide down.The butterfly breathing technique is similar to breaststroke. You will use your shoulder muscles to lift your head out of the water and back down. You should come to breathe while your arms recover and prepare to breathe again.Butterfly stroke benefitsThe butterfly burns the most calories in any swimming style, about 450 calories per 30 minutes of swimming. This punch is a great option to combine both upper body and upper body workouts. During this stroke, you're challenging your core muscles to keep your body stable while your arms and legs move together. It also works the muscles in your arms, chest, and upper back to raise both arms out of the water and over your head. Positioning your body during a butterfly also helps improve overall flexibility.Although it is a great exercise, mastering the intricate movements of the butterfly can be a challenge. If you are looking for a challenge on the water, Butterfly is the way to go.Get swimming gear at All American SwimWhat style of swimming provides the best exercise?
