Stunned MU last minute winter transfer

In the last minutes of the winter transfer period, MU had an additional rookie from China surprisingly.

Before the end of the winter transfer window, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer announced that MU will definitely have a new striker but did not mention any specific name. Therefore, the fans of “Red Devils” were very anxious to wait and in the end, MU also added a goalscorer in the last minutes.

According to the Daily Mail, MU has completed the loan agreement to striker Odion Ighalo from China’s Shanghai Chinese Club for £ 3 million within 6 months. The Nigerian is still in China and will be in Manchester in the next two days to complete the deal.

Odion Ighalo is 30 years old and still has 2 years of contract with Than Hoa Shanghai with a salary of 300,000 £ / week. However, MU will only have to pay 1/3 of the salary of the Nigerian striker during this player at Old Trafford. It is worth noting that this contract does not include a definitive purchase term after the loan expires.

This is considered a “fire contract” of Solskjaer after Marcus Rashford long-term injury. MU had to accept the risk when no medical examination before completing the deal. However, the extremely Norwegian teacher did not have to make this decision.

Earlier, MU was “screaming” to 40 million pounds when asked to buy Joshua King from Bournemouth. The striker only got 3 goals, 2 assists after 16 appearances for Bournemouth this season but the £ 20 million proposals of the “Red Devils” was considered a “joke” by the Dean Court team.

Odion Ighalo has played in the English Premier League under Watford shirt and scored 40 goals in 100 appearances. It was not an impressive achievement, but it was not so bad. The last season played for Than Hoa Shanghai, the Nigerian striker got 10 goals in 19 appearances.

Another interesting information is that Tottenham also contacted Ighalo in the last minutes. Jose Mourinho also wants more people in the attack after Harry Kane is injured. However, the Nigerian striker refused because MU is a team this player admired from childhood.

Tokyo 2020 can become the Winter Olympics!

Confirmation before the Parliament of Japan Olympic Minister Seiko Hashimoto showed that the land of the rising sun took the initiative to organize Tokyo 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Japanese Olympic Minister Seiko Hashimoto reassured public opinion when he informed the Parliament about Tokyo’s contract with the World Olympic Committee (IOC) to postpone the time to host World Games until the end of 2020.

For the time being, it has been reported that COVID-19 will force the IOC to cancel the 2020 Olympic Games. However, Seiko Hashimoto insists: “The Olympic hosting contract allows the organization to be held throughout 2020. This may be possible is understood that Tokyo 2020 is allowed to postpone”.

Also under this agreement, the right to cancel the Olympic Games belongs to the IOC. But a few days ago, IOC president Thomas Bach announced that the organization was committed to supporting the conduct of Tokyo 2020 as planned, despite COVID-19’s continued spread.

On this occasion, Seiko Hashimoto confirmed that the Japanese government and the city of Tokyo are still working hard to make the Olympics start on the right 24/7. It is not difficult to solve this problem, because the budget for the Olympic Games now stands at 1.35 trillion yen (12.51 billion dollars). Among them, the Japanese government has spent 120 billion yen to build the Olympic stadium and 30 billion yen to organize the 2020 Paralympics.

The special plane that brought the 2020 Olympic torch from Greece to Japan just landed at the military airport in Matsushima. Because the European region is now becoming a “hot spot” of COVID-19, Tokyo 2020 leaders did not go to the torch. Representing Japan at the torch relay ceremony was former Olympic swimmer Naoko Imoto.

Despite ideas like US President Donald Trump wants the Olympic Games to be postponed for a year due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the Japanese government is clearly lowering its determination to organize Tokyo 2020 as planned.

However, before the epidemic has killed more than 9,000 people, BTC 2020 Tokyo still has certain precautions. About 200 local children were not allowed to receive the 2020 Olympic Torch as originally conceived. And if nothing changes, the torch relay ceremony in Japan will start from March 26 at the J-Village sports complex in Fukushima.

1. Warm-up

This is the most important step before any exercise. In cold weather, restart is even more important. Need to heat the body, tensing muscles thoroughly before cycling. Kick-start exercises for cycling often focus on the following muscle groups: ankles, hips, abdomen, shoulders, legs, and thighs.

Ledecka shocked the ski history

In the race to rank the Super-G women’s downhill skiing speed, 22-year-old athlete Ledecka finished first with a record of 1 minute 21.11 seconds, faster than the defending champion Anna Veith (Austria) was 0.01 seconds, Liechtenstein Tina Weirather won the bronze medal.

At the destination, Ledecka was almost motionless, his mouth gasping for exhaustion. The 26-year-old female athlete seemed to know that she had just finished the race and did not care about winning or losing. Simply because in her career, her best performance in the above content has never been higher than 27. In addition, Ledecka has just played on skateboards borrowed from American athlete Mikaela Shiffrin.

After a while, Ledecka learned that he had just made the best performance, than Mr. Jan Klapac (won the bronze medal at the 1964 Olympic Innsbruck and the silver medal at Grenoble 1968). The result of the Czech girl’s work was so beyond her imagination, that Ledecka kept wearing goggles during the press conference with very women: “I am not prepared to be present at the press conference for the winner, so I have no makeup”.

With this achievement, Ledecka not only robs Veith of the opportunity to protect the title in an instant but also pushes ski queen Lindsey Vonn to 6th place. The American star paid dearly for the serious mistake that made her It takes too long at the end of the race. Vonn said of Ledecka’s victory. “It was really shocking. She once defeated me while training in Lake Louise, that was unexpected. I feel like a lot of things can happen at the Olympics, not that she doesn’t deserve victory, but bright candidates who are always under a lot of pressure”.

Vonn’s confession is not wrong. Like her teammate Mikaela Shiffrin had just won the giant slalom gold medal, but the next day came in 4th place in the slalom content. After Shiffrin’s disappointing record on February 16, all hope was on Vonn when the once-lover of former world No. 1 player Tiger Woods had a promising start in Pyeongchang 2018.

Vonn has started very well 2/3 of the route with a speed of up to 100km/h and leaps flying over 30m. However, due to the speed up, the beautiful American ski queen did not control the direction of the flight, so the standard landing on the third jump made her deviate from her lane near the destination.
