Ilongga cyclist Dormitorio quitting nat’l team, says dad

first_imgAriana Dormitorio (pictured) was first out of the start line but eventually defeated by two Chinese contenders in the women’s cross-country cycling. ARIANA DORMITORIO / FACEBOOK MANILA – After losing in the 18th Asian Games in Indonesia, Ariana Dormitorio is bolting the Philippine national cycling team, her father said.Ariana’s father and head coach Donjie said they were disappointed with how Kamilla Sumagui, deputy secretary-general of the Integrated Cycling Federation of the Philippines (Philcycling), treated them.The 22-year-old Ariana, a native of Iloilo, struggled heavily in the women cross-country event and failed to finish the race after sustaining a sprained quad muscle on her left thigh.“With Ariana’s result in the just-concluded Asian Games, we are signifying our intention to officially render our resignation from the national team,” Donjie said in a statement released to Radyo Pilipinas. His main disappointment was Philcycling’s failure to include him in the delegation to serve as head coach and trainer for Ariana, who top-seeded her event, said Donjie.“We requested that I pay for my own expenses just so I can be included in the official delegation, and gain access to and assistance from the organizer,” he said.Donjie said his absence adversely affected Dormitorio’s performance.“We feel that we are no longer happy with this and will want out of the national team,” said the father.Donjie also criticized Philcycling for not doing anything when Ariana’s bike arrived late in Indonesia due to cancelled flights in light of a runway incident at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport last week.“Ariana was one of our biggest prospects for a gold medal since she ranked No. 1. We felt she deserved to be given full support to ensure her 100-percent performance on race day,” Donjie said.Ariana is the No. 1 women’s elite Olympic cross country rider in Asia with 320 UCI points, based on latest rankings./PNlast_img read more

“He’s saved us” – Teammate bigs up Manchester United player amid…

first_imgDavid de Gea has been receiving criticism and doubts from the Spanish media for some time now. Unfairly singled out in the aftermath of Spain’s exit from the tournament in Russia, when the current international break started things kicked off again.Both AS and Marca questioned whether the Manchester United goalkeeper should remain first choice for his country, with Chelsea’s Kepa being talked up as the alternative.Luis Enrique stuck with the former Atletico Madrid player and there was a huge amount of pressure ahead of the match against England on Saturday evening.De Gea dealt with that and made a few good saves to help his side to a 2-1 victory in the UEFA Nations League.Sunday’s edition of Marca called it the ‘return’ of De Gea and pointed out that all of his teammates who spoke after the match wanted to push praise his way.Valencia’s Rodrigo was perhaps the strongest, and sent a message to the media, quoted by Marca as saying: “He has saved us. He is always important and does good performances. I hope you are critical in his favour now.”by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameChallenge Your Brain With This Must-Play Strategy Game.
