Abrahamson: Black cap in hand, USA swimmer Mitchell takes last place win
When he was 13, Jake Mitchell moved from northern California to Carmel, Indiana, a suburb of Indianapolis.
Indiana has a long and proud history of high school and college swimming. The Carmel swim club is one of the best in the nation.
Mitchell and Drew Kibler, who goes to Texas, are the first Carmel swimmers to make the U.S. Olympic team. Kibler is two years older than Mitchell. They are good friends. Kibler is due to swim Tuesday in the prelims of the 4×200 free relay.
At the Trials in Omaha, Mitchell went from fifth to second in the final 50 meters of the 400 free. His problem: he touched in 3:48.17. Too slow. To make the 2020 Olympics, swimming’s international governing body, FINA, demands that everybody in the men’s 400 free have raced at least 3:46.78; in swim lingo, this is what’s called an “A cut.”
USA Swimming officials opted to let Mitchell swim by himself in the Omaha pool.
Nerves? “I was super-nervous in the staging area. Shaking almost,” Mitchell has since said.
The crowd roared for him that night as he went out strong and held on, finishing in 3:45.86, way better than what he needed and more than two seconds faster than his prior race.
“It’s probably the coolest thing I’ve seen in swimming,” Matt Barbini, the USA Swimming national team performance director, has said.
“We’re such good friends,” Mitchell would say of Kibler. “To see him make it, I knew I had to make it as well. I knew I could.”
After the Trials, reports from the swim team’s pre-Tokyo camp in Hawaii said Mitchell was turning it on.
At 19 years and seven months, Mitchell became the youngest U.S. male to swim at an Olympics since 2004. He was seeded 13th. That meant he should not have made the final.
But he did.
In Saturday’s prelims, in that white swim cap, Mitchell went 3:45. 38. If at an Olympics you go faster than you did at Trials, that’s performance under pressure. What more can you ask?
Especially because Mitchell had told insiders that what he really wanted here was that black cap.
That 3:45.38 earned Mitchell a seventh-place seed in Sunday’s race. The only guy lower: Hafnaoui, 18, all the way across the pool in Lane Eight, who would, you know, win. Which no one saw coming.
Soul Cap, designed for Afro swimmers, banned by FINA
Tokyo Olympics: Swimming caps designed for natural Black hair banned
The International Swimming Federation has banned swimming caps designed for natural Black hair for use in the upcoming Tokyo Olympics.
Swimming caps designed to encourage Afro swimmers with long, thick and voluminous hair to pursue their sport without barriers have been banned for use in the upcoming Tokyo Olympics.
The International Swimming Federation said the caps, made by the Black-owned British brand Soul Cap, do not “fit the natural form of the head” and to their “best knowledge the athletes competing at the international events never used, neither require … caps of such size and configuration,” according to The Guardian.
The company, which previously partnered with Alice Dearing, the first Black swimmer to represent Great Britain at the Games, has been outspoken about the issue.

“For younger swimmers, feeling included and seeing yourself in a sport at a young age is crucial,” Soul Cap co-founder Toks Ahmed wrote in an Instagram post. “FINA’S recent dismissal could discourage many younger athletes from pursuing the sport as they progress through local, county and national competitive swimming.”
Danielle Obe, the founding member of the Black Swimming Association, told The Guardian the ban has “created a sense of exclusion for members of the black and minority ethnic community,” as other swim caps for Afro hair are difficult to find.
“If the (official swimming bodies) are talking about representation, they need to speak to the communities to find out what the barriers are that are preventing us from engaging,” Obe said. “Hair is a significant issue for our community.”
Noliwe Rooks, the chair of and a professor of Africana Studies at Brown University, told USA TODAY that the swim cap ban fits with many other bans related to Black hair.

“While this ban does not specifically speak about specific Black hairstyles in terms of a ban, as have previous bans from the U.S. military and various corporate concerns and workplaces, this ruling disregards the needs of Black women to protect their hair and their hairstyles when they swim,” Rooks said.
The ban, she said, appears to be based on a lack of understanding about the density or thickness of Black hair.
“The ruling specifically mentioned the fact that Soul Caps do not hug the scalp, but Black hair does not necessarily lay flat against the scalp, and also can have a thickness that makes it impossible to keep a traditional swim cap from filling with water as the athlete swims,” Rooks said.
In a statement, FINA said it “is currently reviewing the situation with regards to ‘Soul Cap’ and similar products, understanding the importance of inclusivity and representation.”
Swimming caps for natural black hair ruled out of Olympic Games | Tokyo Olympic Games 2020
Swimming caps designed for natural black hair created by a black-owned brand will not be allowed at the Olympics.
The hats, made by Soul Cap, which previously partnered with Alice Dearing, who last week qualified to become the first black female swimmer to represent Team GB at the Olympics, have been rejected by the International Swimming Federation (Fina).
The body said the caps did not fit “the natural form of the head” and to their “best knowledge the athletes competing at the international events never used, neither require … caps of such size and configuration”.
Danielle Obe, the founding member of the Black Swimming Association, told the Guardian the ruling underlined the inherent systemic and institutional inequalities around the sport. “We believe that it confirms a lack of diversity in (the sport),” she said. “Aquatic swimming must do better.”
The original swimming cap, designed by Speedo 50, was created to prevent Caucasian hair from flowing into the face when swimming. Obe said the caps did not work for afro hair, which “grows up and defies gravity”.
She said: “We need the space and the volume which products like the Soul Caps allow for. Inclusivity is realising that no one head shape is ‘normal’.”
While other swim caps for afro hair are available they are difficult to find, which, Obe said, created a sense of exclusion for members of the black and minority ethnic community.
“If I walked into my local health club, gym or leisure centre, could I readily pick up one of these (swim caps for afro hair)? No,” said Obe. “Can I walk into a general retail store like Asda, Tesco or Sports Direct and pick one up? No.”
According to the sport’s governing body, Swim England, only 2% of regular swimmers are black. It found 95% of black adults and 80% of black children in England do not swim. While 79% of Asian adults and 79% of Asian children do not swim, black children are three times more likely to drown than white children.
Obe believes a lack of appropriate products prevents members of the BAME community taking up swimming. “If the (official swimming bodies) are talking about representation, they need to speak to the communities to find out what the barriers are that are preventing us from engaging. Hair is a significant issue for our community.”Quick Guide

In response to Fina’s decision, the founders of Soul Cap, Toks Ahmed and Michael Chapman, released a statement on Instagram highlighting the issues around exclusion and the sport.
“For younger swimmers, feeling included and seeing yourself in a sport at a young age is crucial. Fina’s recent dismissal could discourage many younger athletes from pursuing the sport as they progress through local, county and national competitive swimming,” they wrote. They said they feared swimmers would have to “choose between the sport they love and their hair”.

Brooks Cap will not be able to compete in the President’s Cup.At the CJ Cup, held in October in South Korea, the world leader worsened a left knee injury.
“Since my injury at the tournament in South Korea, I have been in constant contact with Tiger. I assured him that I would do my best to recover 100% by the start of the President’s Cup. However, I need more time.
I regret not being able to represent the USA national team. I wish my partners good luck in trying to win the President’s Cup again, ”Kepka said in a statement.

(Ricky Fowler became a participant in the President’s Cup)
American captain Tiger Woods called Ricky Fowler to the national team, who finished 11th in the President’s Cup rankings. However, Fowler hasn’t played a full-fledged tournament since August.
He competed in the Mayakoba Golf Classic. Ricky was forced to withdraw due to an intestinal infection, which he contracted during his wedding in October.
Fowler’s third participation in the President’s Cup
Ricky competed twice in the President’s Cup. He played eight matches, won four of them, lost three, and a draw was recorded in one more.
Why didn’t Woods choose Fowler in the first place?
Because he hasn’t shown good golf for a long time.As already mentioned, since August, Ricky has not finished a single tournament, and since May he only got into the top 10 in one tournament out of ten.
Obviously, the American is not in the best shape now, but at the same time, Fowler is still a strong and experienced golfer who has played in team competitions more than once.
The 13th draw of the tournament, in which the US national team will face the rest of the world (excluding Europe), will be held in Melbourne from 12 to 15 December. The Americans are the reigning champions: they won 19-11 two years ago.
In the history of the tournament, the world team won only one tournament – in 1998, and then the venue was also this Australian city. After that, a draw was recorded, and all the other draws, including seven in a row, were won by the Americans. Now the US team is also the favorite to win.90,000 KITH created a uniform for the US team at the Olympic Games – DTF MAGAZINE

In March, the International Olympic Committee announced new dates for the Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo – they will be held from July 23 to August 8, 2021.

Students staged a rally at the US Embassy in Moscow against the decision of the American referee Bradley Mayer, who did not count the puck of Russian hockey players during the match between the national teams of Russia and the United States. Near the building of the diplomatic mission, more than 400 students took part in an impromptu competition: 10 teams in the uniform of a national team were grinding soap into buckets with the name of the American judge.
Fans chanted “The USA can’t – the judge will help!”, “The judge for soap!”, “Russia will win”. The winners were presented with a cap signed by the central striker of the Russian national team Yevgeny Malkin, according to a message posted on the official website of the Young Guard of United Russia.
According to the students who participated in the flash mob, not a single Russian fan who watched the match between Russia and the United States remained indifferent to the decision of the American referee.
The dissatisfied match took place on 15 February. In the third period, Mayer canceled the puck thrown by Fedor Tyutin against the US national team. The judge made the decision after watching the video replay: it turned out that at the moment that delighted the Russian fans, the Americans’ gates were moved. Tyutin’s puck could become the third scored during the game and take the national team to the playoffs ahead of schedule.The match ended in a draw (2: 2), according to the regulations a winner was required. There were no goals scored in the additional 5 minutes, the leader of the group came to light after a shootout. Its Russian hockey players lost (3: 2).
This incident caused a storm of indignation among Russian fans. The situation was aggravated by the fact that the match was judged by the referee from the United States.
The coaches of the national teams showed restraint in the comments and did not exchange accusations. On the contrary, the head coach of the Russian national team Zinetula Bilyaletdinov said that he had no complaints about refereeing, and his American colleague Dan Bilesma was surprised why Tyutin’s puck was not counted.Photo: mger2020.ru
RBC-Sport journalists explained why the referees made the right decision in a disputable situation. First, the Russian scored the puck when the goal was moved. The fourth paragraph of the 471st rule of the game of hockey states: “A goal will not be counted if the goal is moved from its place or the goal frame is not completely in contact with the ice surface. “Since the scandal flared up for two reasons (the gate was moved by the American goalkeeper, the American referee worked at the match), this requires additional explanation. Not a single point of the rules says that a puck thrown into the goal, which was moved by the goalkeeper (intentionally or unintentionally), can be counted. In addition, the rules of the International Ice Hockey Federation allow the appointment of a referee from the United States for American matches, a Russian referee for Russian matches, a Swede for Sweden, and so on, RBC sports correspondents indicated.
The outgoing US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul denied the fact of fraud on the part of the American arbitrator in his Twitter microblog.Photo: mger2020. ru
Flat cap – abcdef.wiki
The flat lid (sometimes Scally cap) is a rounded lid with a small hard top to the front originating in the British Isles. The hat is known in Ireland as a paddy cap, in Scotland as a cap, in Wales as a Dai cap, in New Zealand as a cheese cutter, and in the United States as a driving cap.For the manufacture of the cap, fabrics made of wool, tweed (most often) and cotton are used. Less common materials may include leather, linen, or corduroy. The inside of the cap is usually padded for comfort and warmth.
HistoryWool flat cap
This style dates back to the 14th century in Northern England, when it was more commonly referred to as the “hat”. The term was changed to “cap” until about 1700, with the exception of Scotland, where it was still referred to as Bunnet in Scotland.
Act of 1571, passed by the English Parliament, is intended to stimulate domestic consumption of wool and trade in general. He decreed that on Sundays and holidays all men over 6 years old, with the exception of the nobility and “persons of higher education”, were to wear woolen hats or pay a fine of three farthing (0.75 pennies, or about £ 0.008) in a day. … The law was not repealed until 1597, although by then the flat cap was firmly established as a recognized mark of ignoble people such as a burgher, merchant, or journeyman.The style may have been the same as the Tudor bonnet, which is still used today in some styles of academic dress.
During the 19th and early 20th centuries, when men predominantly wore hats of one form or another, flat caps were commonly worn throughout Great Britain and Ireland. The finer fabric versions were also considered suitable casual wear in the countryside for the upper class English. Flat-soled caps were worn by trendy youths in the 1920s. Boys of all grades in the United Kingdom during this period wore caps; A pointed school cap of the prescribed color and design, more rounded than men’s flat caps, was part of the regular school uniform.
Caps have been worn in the United States since the 1890s. The cap gained popularity around the turn of the 20th century and was the standard garment for boys at the time. They were worn at school, as casual wear and with costumes. Flat caps were almost always worn with trouser suits in the 1910s and 1920s. In the 1930s, the popularity of both flat caps and panties declined. The flat cap made its way to southern Italy in the late 1800s, probably brought in by British military personnel. In Turkey, the flat cap became a staple headgear for men after it replaced the fez banned by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk in 1925.
One of the flat hats worn in academia, known as the Tudor bonnet or bonnet, comes directly from medieval headdresses from the original 1571 Act. It remains a ceremonial wear by members of the academic community in many countries, usually as a headdress for doctoral graduates. It usually has a soft, round crown and a hard, flat edge. The bonnet is often made of black velvet and trimmed between crown and edge with gold cord and tassels.Some universities prefer to trim their bonnets with colored lace and tassels.
Some stylistic variations of this bonnet:
- The Canterbury Cap is a flat top, soft hat fabric with a round headband deeper at the back than at the front.
- The Oxford hood has a black tape between the crown and edge.
- The John Knox Cap is a soft black velvet square cap worn by doctors from several Scottish universities as well as from Durham University in England, University of Calgary and Queens University in Canada.It is also worn by PhD holders from the University of Liverpool and the University of Victoria in Wellington, New Zealand.
Academic cap (mortar board), however, is more widely used in academia.
British Popular Culture
In British pop culture, the flat cap (or “flat hat”) is commonly associated with older working class men. A flat cap can also be used to denote top class when exposed to negligence.”Emerald can be a little guy too without losing face.” In the late 20th and early 21st centuries, flat caps were worn by British public figures including David Beckham, Nigel Mansell, Guy Ritchie, Richard Blackwood and the Prince of Wales.
The following owners are known in Northern England: Fred Dibna from Bolton; Comic book anti-hero Andy Capp of Hartlepool and AC / DC vocalist Brian Johnson of Newcastle usually wears a flat cap on and off stage.
In Peaky Blinders, , a BBC TV show about a former gang from Birmingham, the characters wear Baker Boy caps – a similar style often confused with flat caps.It was decided and adapted that the gang sewed razor blades into the top of their flat caps for use as weapons.
Use in London’s East End exemplified by Jim Branning of East Enders and Del Boem Trotter of Only Fools and Horses . Taxi and bus drivers are often depicted wearing a flat cap, as comically portrayed in the television sketches of Gareth Hale and Norman Pace (Hale and Pace) London Cabbies.
North American culture
The flat cap hat is associated in popular culture in North America (mainly the United States) with urban newspaper men (that is, newspaper vendors at the corner), a style sometimes referred to as a newsboy hat or newsboy hat, sometimes referred to as a kangol hat from – for a merger with a brand that produces certain styles of flat caps. It is also sometimes worn by older non-professionals or golf enthusiasts.
This style remains popular with groups of people in the UK, Ireland and North America.The cap is sometimes associated with older men, largely in South Korea, but has been popular (along with the newsboy cap) among some segments of youth, such as cities such as Boston and Pittsburgh with large Irish-American populations. It appeared in the hip-hop subculture and is sometimes worn backwards or upside down. It is also very common among men and women in San Francisco, California. In Turkey, he is very popular with men, mainly among the working class.
The fans of the Featherstone Rovers rugby league team are nicknamed “Flat Cappers” because fans have attended matches in previous years, as have most other teams.
A black leather flat cap is often combined with a patched sports coat or a leather jacket and dark clothing (sometimes combined with a striped prisoner shirt) in popular culture to depict a burglar, burglar, or burglar, sometimes with a domino mask. … The comic book character, Gong, is based on this flat-hat street hooligan archetype from vintage cartoons and comics.
Popular American golfer Bryson DeShambeau wears a flat cap during his rounds at the PGA Tour in honor of the late Payne Stewart and Ben Hogan. This look has rekindled popularity among young golfers.
Canadian teams in the 1998 Winter Olympics wore red flat hats designed by Roots at the opening ceremony of the Nations Parade. In addition, the US team at the 2008 Summer Olympics also wore white flat caps designed by Polo Ralph Lauren during the Nations Parade.
It is usually worn in the subculture of Gopnik in Russia.
External Links90,000 We express our concern: Lithuania’s encroachment on the sovereignty of the PRC and the Barbie scandal
Lithuania violated the sovereignty of China, and “Barbie” violated the principle of diversity. A very short overview of really important world news and a few scandals in the Euroradio’s regular compilation.
How to quarrel with China in one month
Beijing demanded that Vilnius recall its ambassador.And the Chinese ambassador from Lithuania will also be taken away.
The fact is that Lithuania allowed Taiwan to open its representative office in Vilnius. And China considers Taiwan to be its territory, and regards such actions as a violation of its sovereignty.
“We call on the Lithuanian side to immediately correct its erroneous decision, take concrete measures to eliminate the damage and not move further on the wrong path,” , the official statement says.
This is generally one of the most sensitive issues for China.Beijing is outraged by any actions in which one can read that Taiwan is considered a separate country.
Taiwan announced that it is opening a representative office in Lithuania last month. And this is the first time that the name Taiwan has been used to open an office in Europe. Usually they got by with the name “Taipei”. And in the Olympics, for example, Taiwan participates under the name “Chinese Taipei”.
Because of the difficult relationship between China and Taiwan, other countries have to figure out how not to offend anyone.For example, only 15 states have official diplomatic relations with Taiwan. But in fact, others also have embassies, only they are called trade offices.
We are concerned, but this is your country
The United States is concerned about the situation in Afghanistan. But they are asking local security forces to handle the Taliban offensive on their own.
“They have a modern air force. They have many advantages that the Taliban do not. We are deeply concerned about the situation in Afghanistan, but this is their country, their cities, their people, ”, said Pentagon spokesman John Kirby.
But this does not mean that the Afghans have been completely abandoned. Washington continues to provide support, including by striking militant positions, Kirby said. The United States increased the number of airstrikes last week.
The US Special Representative for Afghan Reconciliation has traveled to Doha – he plans to call on the Taliban to stop the offensive.
On Sunday evening, a Taliban political bureau spokesman warned the United States against further interference in Afghan affairs.And he said that this Afghan government started the war, and the Taliban only responded.
The US Embassy in Kabul criticized the Taliban attack on Afghan cities. They said that this contradicts the Taliban’s statement of support for a settlement through the Doha talks.
Meanwhile, since Friday, the Taliban have seized the fifth Afghan capital. At least 27 children have been killed and 136 injured in the past 72 hours, according to UNESCO. In just the past few months, 3,000 people have been killed in the country.300 thousand were forced to leave their homes.90,000 Belarusian athlete asked for asylum in Europe because of the scandal at the Tokyo Olympics: 02 August 2021, 03:34
Belarusian athlete Kristina Timanovskaya, performing at the Tokyo Olympics, was forcibly taken to Minsk after she was removed from participation in the Games, Tengrinews.kz reports with reference to Vesti.ru.
On Monday, August 2, Timanovskaya was supposed to start in the 200 meters race, but the representatives of the national team did not allow her to compete.On the eve, Christina criticized sports officials of Belarus for including her in the 4×400 meters relay.
The National Olympic Committee of Belarus announced that the coaching staff of the republic’s national athletics team at the Tokyo Olympics decided to send an athlete home. As the reason for the removal of the athlete from the Games, her emotional and psychological state was named. Timanovskaya herself said that she was not examined by a doctor and the reasons given by the coaching staff are a lie.
The athlete was bought a ticket and taken to the airport. According to the Belarusian Sports Solidarity Foundation (BSSF), one of those who are trying to deport Timanovskaya is the head of the international relations department of the National Olympic Committee of Belarus Vasily Yurchik.
Later, the Czech Republic and Germany offered the athlete an entry visa, but she herself plans to seek asylum from Austria.
“The Czech Republic is ready to help. We will offer a visa to enter our territory.Our embassy in Tokyo is also ready to protect an athlete from Belarus, “said Czech Foreign Minister Jakub Kulganek.
According to media reports, Timanovskaya has now been taken to a safe place.

Flexfit caps have a closed neck, stretch fabric and a curved visor. Caps with a closed back and a straight visor are one-dimensional baseball caps. Adjustable baseball caps are the most common when it comes to baseball caps. They have a curved visor and a regulator at the back of the head – either a plastic clasp, a strap, or Velcro. Five-panel – these are low baseball caps made of five parts with a regulator at the back of the head.A baseball that has a mesh back with a plastic clasp for adjusting the size is called a Trucker baseball cap. Flat caps are the oldest type of cap and the most different from the rest of the models. They have a very short visor and a thin profile, which is typical for flat caps.
Hatstore offers you the opportunity to personalize your baseball cap – you can embroider it with your own text.
