So always stay up to date with all the sports news. For football, tennis, skating, motorsport, cycling and darts news, we have set up special pages on our website, on which the most important things in these sports are highlighted. In this section Sport Short mainly the other messages are discussed.

Cycling: After more than two years, another profit for cyclist Greipel

2.47 pm: Cyclist André Greipel has won a race for the first time in more than two years. The 38-year-old German was the fastest in the bunch sprint of the Trofeo Alcúdia on the Spanish island of Mallorca. He trumped the Norwegian Alexander Kristoff (second) and the Belgian Christophe Noppe (third).

Greipel, who has won eleven stage victories in the Tour de France and seven in the Tour of Italy in his career, was last successful for this victory in January 2019, when he won the sixth stage of the Tour of Gabon.

Athletics: Bersee and Dillen winners of the Fieldlabloop in Enschede

2.25 pm: Dominic Bersee and Kim Dillen have won the first running race over 10 kilometers since the outbreak of the corona virus in the Netherlands. Bersee was the fastest man on the closed course at the old Twente air base in 30.43 minutes, Dillen won the race in the women’s race in 35.41.

The competition was part of the Fieldlab running event in Enschede, for which more than 1,800 people registered. There was room for 5000 participants, but the organization did not get that many runners at the start. The organization suspected that the obligation to submit a negative corona test prevented people from registering.

The event has four start times. On the running area, everything is as possible as normal, with music, a catering square, no distance rules and no obligation to wear a face mask.

Motorsport: Bendsneyder surprises with fifth place in Moto 2 race Le Mans

1:45 PM Emergency surgery on his right arm has worked out wonderfully well for motorcycle racer Bo Bendsneyder. The Rotterdam road racer finished fifth in Moto2 at the Grand Prix of France at the Le Mans circuit. That is his best result ever in this class from the World Championship road race. Spaniard Raul Fernandez won the race.

The 22-year-old Bendsneyder underwent surgery on his arm last week to remedy a problem that many motorcycle racers struggle with. He suffered from the ‘arm pump’, loosely translated the pumped forearm. Due to the prolonged tension during the races, the muscles in the arms can cramp and cause loss of strength.

The Rotterdammer already did well in the qualifications, in which he took sixth place on the grid. From that position he had a good start in the race and after a few laps the driver of the Indonesian team Pertamina Mandalika was even in third place. He couldn’t hold that podium place; Australian Remy Gardner and Italian Tony Arbolino passed him.

Football: VVV in final game without coach Luhukay

01.01 pm: VVV-Venlo closes the season without trainer Jos Luhukay. The 57-year-old Limburger has gone into quarantine and is therefore missing on the bench in the last league match against FC Emmen. The assistants Jay Driessen and Mark Luijpers therefore have ultimate responsibility.

VVV concludes a four-year stay in the Eredivisie against FC Emmen. The club from Venlo lost 3-1 at Ajax on Thursday, making relegation a fact. There is still a lot at stake for FC Emmen in De Koel. The team of trainer Dick Lukkien takes sixteenth place, with 1 point less than Willem II. The club that finishes in sixteenth must avoid relegation in the play-offs.

Luhukay was appointed in March as successor to the dismissed Hans de Koning, with the task of keeping VVV at the highest level. The club from Venlo took only 1 point in seven games under him.

Rowing: Men twos to Tokyo

12.21 pm: The Dutch rowers in the pairs have taken a ticket for the Olympic Games in Tokyo. Niki van Sprang and Guillaume Krommenhoek won the final at the Olympic qualifying tournament (OKT) in Lucerne and thus secured an Olympic starting ticket.

The Dutch duo already rowed convincingly in the heats and placed themselves as the fastest for the final battle in the semi-finals earlier on Sunday. In it, Van Sprang and Krommenhoek dueled with the competition, which mainly came from Denmark and the United States. After an exciting race, the Dutch runner-up crossed the line in 6.38.60 just earlier than the Danish boat, which recorded 6.38.67.

The total number of Dutch boats that play at the Summer Games in Japan is now eleven. The women two-without and the women eight failed to obtain an Olympic starting license at the OKT on the Rotsee.

The ten boats that were already certain of Tokyo will participate in competitions for the World Cup from 21 May, which also take place on the Rotsee.

Rowing: Women eight miss ticket to Tokyo Games

12.20 pm: The eight women failed to obtain an Olympic ticket at the Olympic rowing qualifying tournament in Lucerne. The boat finished fourth in the final on the Rotsee.

A place in the top two was required to participate in the Games in Tokyo, which start on July 23. The eight of China won in 6.12,80 and was just three seconds ahead of Romania (6.15,27). These boats qualified for Tokyo.

The eight, with Elsbeth Beeres, Nika Vos, Dieuwertje den Besten, Marloes Oldenburg, Hermijntje Drenth, Tinka Offereins, Aletta Jorritsma, Karien Robbers and helmsman Dieuwke Fetter, clocked 6.25.39.

Football: Werder Bremen fires trainer before last round

12.18 pm: Werder Bremen has made a rigorous intervention before the final round of the Bundesliga. The German club fired trainer Florian Kohlfeldt and replaced him with Thomas Schaaf, who previously coached Bremen. The decision came a day after the defeat against Augsburg (2-0), putting Bremen in acute relegation danger.

Kohlfeldt has been head coach since 2017 and has been under discussion throughout the season. The last series of nine games, in which only 1 point was scored, still sealed his fate. “Unfortunately, after the defeat in Augsburg, we were no longer convinced that we can continue with Florian Kohfeldt,” said director Frank Baumann.

Schaaf, who previously trained Bremen from 1999 to 2013, now has to prepare Werder Bremen for the last game of the regular season, next Saturday against Borussia Mönchengladbach. The aim is to maintain the place in the Bundesliga; preferably directly and otherwise via a play-off.

Rowing: rowers in pairs – not going to Play

10:45 am: The rowers in the pairs did not get a ticket for Tokyo at the Olympic qualifying tournament on the Rotsee of Lucerne. Eve Stewart and Jośe van Veen finished sixth and last in the final. A place in the top two was required to enforce participation in the Games.

The Russian duo Vasilisa Stepanova and Elena Oriabinskaia won the final race and secured the Olympic ticket. The other starting ticket went to the Danish pair, with Hedvig Rasmussen and Fie Udby Erichsen in it.

Basketball: Lakers keep track of playoffs after beating Pacers

10:00 am Reigning NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers has taken full advantage of the return of star player LeBron James. He guided his squad to a clear victory over Indiana Pacers (122-115) and kept the Lakers in the race for the playoffs.

James, plagued with injuries this season, played his first game since May 2. He recorded 24 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds. Anthony Davis was also on track with 28 points and 10 rebounds.

The Lakers recorded their 41st win of the season and with one more game to go in the regular season, they maintain their prospect of immediate qualification for the playoffs, which is reserved for the top 6 in both divisions. The numbers seven to ten play barrages for the last four tickets.
