British Rowing set to begin phased return to outdoor training

British Rowing set to begin phased return to outdoor training

Single scullers could be the first to resume water-based sessions at British Rowing’s headquarters as part of a phased “boat is your bubble” approach to transition athletes back into outdoor training, providing lockdown restrictions continue to ease. 

British Rowing has shared details with Telegraph Sport of its plan to recommence minimal activity at its Redgrave Pinsent Rowing Lake in Caversham, which has been closed since March 20 after holding Olympic trials.

Any resumption of rowing activity is likely to be limited to the reopening of the site’s outdoor boathouse to accommodate water-based training. This would be in line with government guidance, which advises the risk of spreading coronavirus is lower in open spaces. Indoor facilities at the site – where up to 80 athletes and support staff can normally be found – are expected to remain shut until at least June 1.

Single scullers – athletes in one-person boats –

Eden Hazard training, aims to be ready for next Real Madrid match (video)

Eden Hazard’s first Real Madrid season looked cut short by surgery, but the Belgian playmaker has matches on the menu should La Liga return.

Hazard, 29, underwent ankle surgery in early March in what was the scheduled end of a disappointing debut season at the Bernabeu.

He has one goal and five assists in 15 matches, missing the start of the season with a hamstring injury and 2.5 months with a broken foot before the final ankle injury in a 1-0 loss at Levante on Feb. 22.

Hazard is doing fine now, and hopes to be at full power when and if Real returns to the field this summer (The club is also down 2-1 to Man City after one leg in the Champions League, which seeks an August resumption).

“I’m very happy,” Hazard said. “After two months out I need more fitness and

Coronavirus: Shaw relishing giant step as Man Utd prepare for training return

Shaw relishing giant step as Man Utd prepare for training return

Manchester United will be taking “a massive step forward” when they return to training on Wednesday, says defender Luke Shaw.

Although contact between players is not yet allowed, United’s squad will reconvene for a first session since coronavirus restrictions for elite sport were eased.

Sessions for small groups will get under way but players must adhere to social distancing rules, arriving in training kit and showering at home rather than in shared changing rooms.

“The rules have to be really strict but we’re obviously all going to stick to them just to make sure things run as smoothly and safely as possible,” Shaw said.

“I think we’re all determined to do things properly because we’re all looking forward to getting back on a proper pitch! Running down at the park is okay, but obviously it isn’t ideal.

“We have to do our work, keep fit and it’ll be nice to

I took the contact tracer training, and here's what I learned

I took the contact tracer training, and here’s what I learned

I have a full-time job and no plans to leave it, but when Johns Hopkins launched an online course for contact tracers last week, I itched to enroll.

I’m a health reporter, which these days means lots of interviews with scientists and doctors about COVID-19 and the virus that causes it. I’m well-informed and curious, but I don’t have any formal science or health training beyond what I’ve learned on the job over the past decade.

The course is meant as a prerequisite for the 6,400 to 17,000 contact tracers that New York plans to hire to help amid the COVID-19 outbreak in the state. It’s also free, online and available to the general public.

Did I have what it takes to be a contact tracer? I felt compelled to find out.

I wasn’t alone. By the morning of May

Hudson-Odoi back in Chelsea training despite arrest after testing negative for coronavirus

Chelsea’s players are back training in restricted small groups after they all passed their first phase of screening for coronavirus amid attempts for the Premier League to return by mid-June.

Callum Hudson-Odoi was pictured at Cobham having had a negative test days after he was arrested following allegations of rape. Both Chelsea and Hudson-Odoi have yet to comment after the news emerged on Sunday night.

19 of the 20 Premier League clubs were screened for Covid-19 on Sunday and Monday with the pandemic having disrupted football across the United Kingdom and Europe.

The players were given their results at 2pm on Tuesday afternoon and Chelsea opted to train from 4pm after Frank Lampard instructed his players to immediately return upon being cleared.

The session marked Chelsea’s first day back on the training ground in groups for 72 days, having been allowed to do solo sessions with a doctor present in

Beauden Barrett sets fitness record as Super Rugby training resumes in New Zealand

Beauden Barrett sets fitness record as Super Rugby training resumes in New Zealand

Beauden Barrett marked the return of Super Rugby team training sessions in New Zealand after lockdown by breaking a Blues record in fitness testing.

The 28 year-old All Blacks star, yet to feature for his new franchise since moving from the Hurricanes, clocked a time of four minutes and 12 seconds for a shuttle run known as a ‘bronco’.

This entails players lining up on the try-line before running 20 metres and back, 40 metres and back and then 60 metres and back. The circuit is then repeated four times continuously.

Barrett, renowned as one of the quickest members of New Zealand’s squad over the taxing 1.2km drill, finished two seconds in front of scrum-half Jonathan Ruru and was one of eight Blues players to have clocked a personal best according to a video posted on social media.

Rieko Ioane and England international Joe Marchant were among a “backs bubble”

Inter Miami returns to training site for individual workouts. Here’s how it went

Inter Miami returns to training site for individual workouts. Here’s how it went

One by one the Inter Miami players, wearing face masks, pulled into the parking lot at the team’s Fort Lauderdale training facility Wednesday morning and stopped to have their temperature taken by trainers in protective gear.

Once they were cleared, they were directed to their assigned parking spot, and then proceeded to train individually in their private quadrant of the practice field. The balls and equipment were carefully sanitized.

It was the first time players were allowed to train on site since before COVID-19 forced the suspension of Major League Soccer on March 12. Though it didn’t look or feel like it did before, it was a lot better than working out alone in their living rooms, backyards and condo parking lots.

“It was a lot of fun to be back,” captain and goalkeeper Luis Robles said. “I know the setup is a little different, but it’s not as if

Liverpool partially re-open training ground for player sessions

Liverpool have taken their first step towards a return to normality by partially re-opening its Melwood training base to some players this week, Goal can confirm.

A number of Jurgen Klopp’s squad – although by no means all of them – have returned to the Reds’ West Derby base, which had been under lockdown since the middle of March.

Groups of three players have been allowed to use outdoor training spaces at any one time since Monday. 

They have, in line with Government advice, been instructed to adhere to strict social distancing rules, but each player has been given access to an individual space which they can use for up to an hour, with their progress monitored from a distance by a single member of the club’s medical staff.

Access to the Melwood building itself is forbidden, with the club insisting that the players’ return is simply a practical one.
