Marcel Kittel, tricou roz dupa o etapa copy-paste; Grosu a cazut si a dat 7'39"

Etapa a 3-a a Turului ciclist al Italiei, de duminica, a fost parca o poza in oglinda a celei de sambata: a castigat la un sprint masiv  germanul Marcel Kittel (Etixx), tot cu aproape doua biciclete avans fata de urmatorii sositi, a avut o evadare de circa 100 km, cu protagonisti tot veteranul olandez de 38 de ani Maartins Tjillingii si italianul Giacomo Berlato, a avut tot 190 km, iar in oglinda pentru ca a fost exact invers, de la Nijmegen la Arnhem. 262 more words

Hijab la Rio-2016, Lady Gaga, transfer de 42 milioane in China, Maradona si Napoli, Kittel

* Prima sportiva care a anuntat, si a primit aprobarea, sa poarte hijab (acoperamantul de cap la femeile musulmane) este… americana, se numeste Ibtihaj Muhammad, si, la urma-urmei, practicand scrima, nu prea socheaza, pentru ca in competitie are, in majoritatea timpului, obisnuita masca de protectie. 487 more words
