Comenentia hammer thrower eliminated after three wrong attempts
7:11 PM: Denzel Cominentia did not qualify for the hammer throw final at the World Championships in Athletics in Eugene, USA. The 26-year-old athlete from Amsterdam, who trains and lives in the United States, was disappointed in qualifying with three incorrect attempts.
Comenentia was the first Dutchman to play in the World Championships at Hayward Field, the modern athletics stadium in Eugene (Oregon). The last Dutch championship in Apeldoorn also ended in disappointment. Until then he hadn’t gotten the 7.26-kilogram heavy bullet right out of the cage.
Comenentia wasn’t really one of the favorites to win a medal. His best distance this season is 75.21 metres, so he is not very high in the world standings.
Second show jump in Nations Cup Falsterbo
7:09 PM: Dutch show jumpers finished second at the Nations Cup (FEI Nations Cup) in Falsterbo, Sweden. As a result, national coach Guus Lansink’s team is now at the top of the general classification. Moreover, the Netherlands is already sure of its participation in the Nations Cup final in Barcelona. “It was great. I’m very happy with it,” said Lancink.
“We’re back with a lot of strength,” Lancink continues. “In the first moto we were a little behind. But the ‘zero rounds’ always make us top of the standings.” Qualifying for Barcelona is a great bonus, according to the former world champion. As was the intention to achieve it. But that is not the main goal for this year. This qualifies us for the Paris Olympics.”
The latter should take place at the World Cup next month in Herning, Denmark. Lansink will announce his selection on Wednesday. Holland started in Falsterbo with Jur Vrieling, Johnny Pals, Patrick Lemmen and Harrie Smolders. Belgium won the match.
ADO in the first home game of the new season without an audience
6.26 pm: ADO Den Haag must finish the first home game of the new season in the Kitchen Champion Division without an audience. ADO FC will face Den Bosch in front of empty stands on Friday, August 14th.
The Football Prosecutor imposed this penalty in response to the disturbances at ADO Den Haag – Excelsior on May 29. Around that match, where promotion to the Eredivisie was at stake, ADO fans misbehaved. ADO gave up its 3-0 lead against Rotterdam and eventually became 4-4. Excelsior secured promotion via penalties which became necessary, which led to great frustration among the club’s fans from The Hague.
ADO accepted the ruling and decided not to appeal.

The match starts now at 10:00 am.
Marc Marquez can begin rehabilitation six weeks after surgery
13:57: Motorcycle rider Marc Marquez has been given permission to start physical therapy six weeks after surgery on his left arm in the United States. “We have taken an important step in the recovery process,” the Spaniard, the six-time world champion in MotoGP, said during his team’s Repsol Honda race.
The 29-year-old Marquez broke his right arm during the 2020 Spanish Grand Prix. He then missed the entire season, and had to undergo three more surgeries. His most recent operation is the fourth. “In this second examination, the doctors confirmed that the upper arm bone is properly secured. With this we can begin physical therapy in the right arm. I am very happy to be able to regain mobility in my arm and I thank the entire medical team for the care and attention.”
Marquez wants to return to MotoGP in 2023. The Spaniard will remain in the US for now to continue working on his recovery.
