El gran homenaje a Juan Gabriel: Así se despide al ícono que marcó un antes y un después en la música por su carisma, talento y entrega al público





Así se despide al ícono que marcó un antes y un después en la música por su carisma, talento y entrega al público. El secretario de Cultura de México aseguró que el Palacio de Bellas Artes está disponible para rendirle honores al artista.




La muerte de una de las figuras más queridas e importantes de la música y la cultura popular de Hispanoamérica ha roto el corazón de miles de fanáticos en el mundo. Su partida a los 66 años por un infarto, tras haberse presentado casi 24 horas antes en The Forum de Los Angeles, sigue considerándose abrupta por la vitalidad que siempre mostraba.
Si bien los restos del cantante ya fueron retirados de la residencia y se encuentran en una funeraria de Santa Mónica, la familia aún no confirma dónde será sepultado.
Relacionado a lo anterior, el gobierno de México, a través del secretario de Cultura, ofreció rendirle honores y una despedida masiva al "Divo de Juaréz" en el Palacio de Bellas Artes del DF.









En la espera para dar el último adiós físico al músico, miles de seguidores se congregaron en los distintos puntos clave para rendirle un gran homenaje a quien conquistó masas con su carisma, su talento y la entrega al público con una autenticidad que lo caracterizarán por siempre.
Algunas de las ubicaciones más concurridas fueron su espacio en el Paseo de la fama en Hollywood, la plaza de Garibaldi en México y la ciudad que le vio crecer, Juárez.

RIO DE JANEIRO, August 18, 2016 - Britta Heidemann from Germany (fencing), Seug-min Ryu from Korea (table tennis), Daniel Gyurta from Hungary (swimming) and Yelena Isinbayeva from the Russian Federation (athletics) have been elected to the International Olympic Committee (IOC)’s Athletes’ Commission by their peers at the Olympic Games Rio 2016 for a term of eight years.

IOC President Thomas Bach said: “The athletes are at the heart of the Olympic Games. Their voice is very important in the IOC. My congratulations go to the newly elected members of the IOC Athletes’ Commission. We are looking forward to working closely with them to further advance the Olympic Movement.”

The announcement was made today at the Olympic Village by IOC Member and Chair of the Election Committee Nicole Hoevertsz and incoming Chair of the IOC Athletes’ Commission Angela Ruggiero. The election was held over the past 25 days in the Olympic Village located in Rio de Janeiro.

Heidemann was elected with 1,603 votes, followed by Ryu with 1,544, Gyurta with 1,469 votes and Isinbayeva with 1,365. A total of 5,185 athletes voted.

The four new members will replace outgoing members Claudia Bokel, Dae Sung Moon, Alexander Popov and Yumilka Ruiz Luaces, who were elected to the Athletes’ Commission at the Beijing Games in 2008 for a term of eight years each.

Claudia Bokel, who will be handing over the title of Chair of the Commission to Angela Ruggiero at the end of the Games, said after the announcement: “Congratulations to the four newly-elected members to the IOC Athletes’ Commission, which is the voice of all the athletes within the Olympic Movement. I wish them all the best in their contribution to the Commission under the leadership of incoming Chair Angela Ruggiero.”

On 21 August, Heidemann, Ryu, Gyurta and Isinbayeva will be proposed to the IOC Session for IOC membership. Pending approval, they will then be officially introduced at the Closing Ceremony of the Olympic Games Rio 2016 on 21 August.

Some 11,245 athletes were eligible to vote, and had 23 candidates from the same number of countries to choose from. Votes needed to be cast for four different athletes from four different sports. The candidates had to be presented by their National Olympic Committees, which were required to have their own athletes’ commission to select the candidate. In order to be eligible, the candidates had to have participated either in the Olympic Games in London in 2012 or in Rio in 2016.

Biographies of all the candidates can be found here.

Angela Ruggiero, current Vice Chair of the IOC Athlete’s Commission, was elected as the new Chair on 1 August and will replace outgoing Chair Claudia Bokel. After four years at the helm of the Commission, Bokel will see her term of office come to an end at the conclusion of the Olympic Games Rio 2016. Ruggiero will then take Bokel’s seat on the IOC Executive Board.

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE 2016: Arribo de Claudio Bravo tiene "furioso" a Joe Hart con Pep Guardiola




Claudio Bravo, Pep Guardiola y Joe Hart, los protagonistas de este triángulo

Medios ingleses aseguran que el portero y referente de Manchester City está enojadísimo con Pep, el promotor del arribo del chileno.

 
En la vida hay muchas decisiones que dejan damnificados. Este es el caso del arquero Joe Hart, el gran perjudicado con el arribo de Claudio Bravo al arco de Manchester City.
Y es tanta la molestia del portero inglés, seleccionado de su país y referente de los "citizens", que según el Daily Mail estaría "furioso" con Pep Guardiola, el gran promotor del arribo del capitán de la Selección Chilena.
De acuerdo al matutino, el origen de la molestia de Hart es el trato recibido por Guardiola. Para los partidos de la fase previa de la Champions League, el DT utilizó a Willy Caballero en los duelos ante Steaua Bucarest, a la espera del arribo de Bravo. Lo mismo hizo en el arranque de la Premier League.
"Hart cree que al no informarle antes su situación, Guardiola y el club han mermado gravemente sus posibilidades de buscar un nuevo equipo en ester mercado de fichajes", sostiene Daily Mail. El cierre finaliza el 31 de agosto.
En efecto, el arquero británico se habría enterado del interés por Bravo recién al volver de la Eurocopa. Además, en el entrenamiento de ayer, Hart y Guardiola tuvieron una charla que avala los rumores de que el portero inglés viviría sus últimas horas en el City.

BRONZE MEDAL AT RIO 2016: Canada 2- Brazil 1, and our team makes history at Rio 2016 after back-to-back Olympic medals



Canada are back on the podium after a historic run at the Rio 2016 Women's Olympic Football Tournament. Canada won five of six matches to claim their second consecutive bronze medal, culminating their run with a 2:1 victory over host Brazil.




On the final day, it was again Canada's blend of youth and experience that made the difference. Seventeen-year old Deanne Rose opened the scoring and captain Christine Sinclair scored the eventual winner, with one goal on either side of the break. Incidentally, both Sinclair and Rose also hit the woodwork in the victory.
MATCH CENTRE - CANADA 2:1 BRAZIL
From five wins, Canada beat three confederation champions: the Asian champions Australia, the European champions Germany, and the South American champions Brazil. The 19 August victory against Brazil gave Canada 15 wins on the 2016 calendar year, a new record for Canada Soccer's Women's National Team after 30 years of international soccer.
For Team Canada, this marks the first back-to-back medal performance at the Summer Olympic Games since 1908. From more than 100 years of Summer Olympics, only Team Canada's men's lacrosse had previously won back-to-back medals back in 1904 and 1908. With bronze at London 2012 and Rio 2016, Canada Soccer's Women's National Team are the first women's team sport to win back-to-back Summer Olympic medals.
"This is such a true testament to the leadership and dedication from everyone involved in our Women's National Team Program," said Peter Montopoli, Canada Soccer's General Secretary. "We have a world-class program, from our heroes on our back-to-back Olympic bronze medal team to our youth players in the EXCEL Program to the next generation growing up across the nation. It was wonderful to see an entire nation come together to support Canada's team from coast to coast to coast."






With 39,718 fans in attendance at the Arena Corinthians in São Paulo, Deanne Rose opened the scoring in the 25th minute after a brilliant run down the left wing by Ashley Lawrence. Rose made her equal run to the back post and knocked it in for the 1-0 lead.
In the second half, it was Rose's turn to be provider when she centered a pass into the box to Sinclair. Canada's captain made no mistake in doubling the lead with the 52nd minute strike - a goal that turned out to be the winner after Beatriz scored for Brazil in the 79th minute.
"It was pretty surreal the whole experience," said Head Coach John Herdman, Canada Soccer's Women's National Team Head Coach. "The crowd was fantastic. There was just an inner belief that it was going to happen today. These girls were very clear in what they wanted to do. It has just been a great experience, this whole tournament has been fantastic."
"I am just super proud, not just our team, but every member of our staff," said captain Christine Sinclair. "It has been four years of hard work, four years of dedication. We set a goal to achieve back-to-back podiums and we weren't going to settle for anything less than that. I am just super proud of this team."
This marks Canada's third consecutive participation at the Women's Olympic Football Tournament. Four years ago at London 2012, Canada won a historic bronze medal, the nation's first in a summer team sport since 1936. Through Rio 2016, the Women's National Team's impact across back-to-back Olympic Games has been unifying the country while serving as strong role models for the next generation of Canadian footballers.
The Rio 2016 Women's Olympic Football Tournament runs 3-19 August in six venues (seven stadiums) across Brazil. Across three venues, Canada have traveled 3,182 kilometres from São Paulo to Brasilia to São Paulo to Belo Horizonte and back to São Paulo. Support for #CanadaRED has been tremendous both before and during the Olympic Games, with complete coverage at CanadaSoccer.com. Since the opening match on 3 August, fans have watched every game live on Canadian television and followed #CANWNT across multiple digital and social networks including FacebookInstagramSnapchat, and Twitter.
