Sparta Major does not agree to a four-match ban
5:38 pm: Defender Aaron Meijer of Sparta Rotterdam disagrees with the settlement proposal of the Football Public Prosecutor to suspend him for four matches (one of which is conditional). He refers the case to the KNVB Disciplinary Committee.
Myers received the red card on Sunday in Sparta’s 4-0 loss to SC Campore. He knocked out club striker Tom Boyr of Leeuwarden hard.
Meijers and Sparta disagree with the penalty proposal. The Eredivisie club report “disproportionately” on their website. “It certainly plays a part in this that the player has only received a direct red card once in his fifteen-year career (in the KNVB Cup) and has never received a red card in more than 430 competition matches and therefore has nearly an empty penalty card. .”
Carbon plate boots toughen marathon boundaries
5:34 pm: The Athletics Federation has significantly tightened the restrictions on marathons to participate in the 2022 World Cup in Eugene, USA. Men must run 2.10.00 or faster or finish in the top ten in a major marathon. For women, the requirement is at least 2.28.00 or a place in the top eight in the main marathon.
The men’s World Cup cap in Eugene is a minute and a half lower than the 2.11.30 that was in effect at last summer’s Olympics in Japan and the 2019 World Cup in Doha. That time 2.11.30 is also still the international limit used by the IAAF, but the IAAF has settled into its shadow. Women must advance 30 seconds faster to qualify to serve for the 2022 World Cup. For the Games in Tokyo and the World Cup in Doha, the time limit of 2.28.30 has been applied.
The restrictions have been tightened by modern running shoes with a carbon plate and foam layer in the sole, on which athletes can be seen running faster. Prior to the Tokyo Games, an unprecedented number of six marathons had reached the 2.11.30 limit. Since only three men were allowed to participate in the Olympic marathon, the Athletics Federation had to choose for the first time.
The World Championships will be held in Eugene in July 2022. The deadline for meeting the marathon limit has already started on January 1, 2021 and will run until May 1, 2022. This means that Abdi Nagy and Khaled Shokod have already qualified. Nagy won the silver medal at the Olympics with a time of 2:09:58. The chocode scored 2.09.55 in April of this year in Siena.
There are six so-called major marathons. Next is the London Marathon next Sunday. The top teams also include the Boston Marathon, Berlin, Tokyo, New York and Chicago.
Most of the top Dutch runners will run the marathon at the Amsterdam Marathon on Sunday 17 October. Shkod, Michael Pater, Bjorn Kormann and Frank Futselaer will compete for the Dutch championship.
