SixSixOne Summit MIPS MTB Helmet | Helmets
Packed with safety tech, including MIPS and Contego EPS core, the SixSixOne Summit MIPS MTB Helmet lets you ride trails with confidence knowing your head is reliably protected should you crash.
When you’re pushing tire grip, taking on more technical trails and challenging your riding skills, crashing is all part of the mountain biking game. The Summit MIPS MTB Helmet combines Contego EPS Foam, MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) and an extended rear shell to protect you in the event of a crash.
The Contego EPS foam core provides exceptional impact absorption. Its ability to dissipate harmful forces exceeds that of a conventional EPS foam core, providing extra safety for hard-charging mountain bikers. Meanwhile, the in-mold construction sees a tough and durable outer bonded to the protective core, maintaining structural integrity in a crash. It also provides protection from everyday knocks and bumps and those overhanging branches along the trail. We then come to the MIPS technology.
What is MIPS?
Multi-directional Impact Protection System (MIPS) is a proven system that reduces the rotational forces on the brain when you’re involved in a crash. The forces are absorbed and redirected to prevent them from being transmitted to the brain.
MIPS is a Brain Protection System
Rotational motion can cause brain injuries
The low friction layer allows a sliding movement of 10–15 mm, in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact
Keep in the Flow
As you enjoy the flow of fast mountain bike trails, the Summit will also keep cool air flowing to your head. A total of 15 vents keep a rush of air circulating over your head, ensuring you’re not overheating when enjoying trail time.
A precise and comfortable fit is made possible by the Dial-Fit System. A simple twist of the dial lets you get a secure fit. You also get the quick and easy fitting of a Fidlock magnetic buckle.
Inside, the comfort liner gives you soft and quick-wicking comfort. It’s anti-microbial too, preventing bacterial build up – so no more itchy head after your mountain bike session. And it’s removable to make it easy to wash and maintain all-ride freshness.
The Arreat Summit – Items: Elite Helms
(Normal Helms |
Experts consider the head to be the most important part of the body. Without protection of some kind, one could easily
be separated from this vital extremity. Helmets ensure that such an event is unlikely as possible. From simple leather
caps to royal crowns, helms offer protection from the harsh realities of combat.

Climbing Helmets: Fit, Use, Features
Words: Marc Simonpietri
Photo Credit: Various
A mis-tossed (and frozen!) Sour Patch Kid. A full Nalgene sliding down Rainier’s summit cone. A lead swap gone wrong with a dropped #2 cam. Falling ice, falling rock, and falls on rock or ice. These are all instances in which we need head protection while recreating in the mountains. Because of that, a helmet is an essential piece of equipment when mountaineering, climbing, or skiing. But there are so many options out there – how do you choose? Below, we’ll look at a few points to consider when looking to protect your head.
First, consider fit. No matter they type of helmet, a good fit is essential to providing protection. If the helmet is too big and slides around on your head, it will not actually protect your brain, and could go as far as falling off in the event of a fall or tumble. When fitting your helmet, you should be able to slide the helmet onto your head, tighten the strap in the back, and shake your head around upside down without the helmet moving or falling off (with the chin strap unbuckled!). If you can do that, your helmet fits.
While trying the helmet out, make sure that it is comfortable. This could be in the form of foam or padding inside the helmet, or that the straps contour and fit to your head well. You’re less likely to use an ill-fitting or uncomfortable helmet. Also playing into the comfort factor is adjustability. Some helmets offer multiple easy-to-use adjustment points (back and sides), while others offer less adjustability or fit systems that are just plain harder to adjust correctly.
Finally, make sure your helmet is adjustable enough to fit well both with and without a warm hat on underneath it!
Many of our first-time mountaineering climbers ask, “I already have a ski helmet. Can I use that for climbing Mount Rainier, instead of a climbing helmet?” This gets at an important point. Designers build helmets for specific uses. For safety reasons, it’s critical that you only use your helmet for its intended purpose.
Testing agencies certify helmets to protect your head from different factors. For example, a climbing helmet is designed to absorb point-impacts from above, like a falling piece of rock. A ski helmet, on the other hand, is designed to protect your head from the more widely distributed blunt force of your head impacting packed snow or a tree.
The second reason to use a helmet for its intended purpose is comfort. Ski helmets are designed with insulation and less ventilation, which means while walking uphill on a Mount Baker climb, your head will be overly warm and sweaty. We try and avoid overheating while mountaineering! Ski helmets are also heavier than climbing helmets, making them less comfortable on long days. Ski helmets are great options while actually skiing, but for mountaineering and climbing objectives, it’s key to utilize the specific equipment that will keep you safe and comfortable on the mountain.
Some helmets receive a dual rating. For example, for ski touring and for climbing. See our recommendations at the end of this article to check out one of our favorite versatile, dual-rated helmets.
Last, consider features. There are many, many features to consider when choosing a helmet, so let’s touch on a few of the most important here.
- Protection – All helmets provide protection, right? Well, yes. Just some more than others. Look for a helmet that provides top AND side protection. This will guard your head most fully.
- Weight – An important factor, as a heavier helmet can be much more uncomfortable over a long summit day push, causing neck pain and the desire to not wear a helmet, even when you should be. The lightest helmets come in at an astonishing 6.1oz (Petzl Siccoro) while heavier helmets can weigh almost a pound (Mammut Skywalker 2).
- Headlamp Clips – While most helmets these days feature headlamp clips for those brutally early alpine starts, make sure that the helmet you are considering has clips that are easy and straightforward to use. Many ski helmets do not have headlamp clips – for climbing, headlamp clips are an absolute must, as a headlamp will not stay secured on your helmet without clips.
- Durability – While it may seem obvious that a helmet should be durable, there are some specific pros and cons in considering durability. A more durable helmet (typically made with harder plastic) will be heavier. But, you won’t have to worry as much about breaking it while it’s in your backpack or in transit. A less durable helmet (typically made of dense foam) will weigh less, but you’ll need to be more careful with it, especially when it’s not on your head (i. e. don’t sit on it when you plop down on your backpack during a break on the approach).
- Ponytail-Friendly – These days, those who rock a ponytail in the backcountry might consider a model shaped to allow a normal-height ponytail to exit the back of a helmet. The alternative – wearing a ponytail very low with a normal helmet – is somewhat less comfortable.
SO WHICH HELMET SHOULD I BUY?
At the end of the day, which helmets should you consider? Here’s a few of our favorites to kick-start your research:
- Petzl Meteor – The Meteor strikes a great balance of a mid-range price, light weight, and well ventilated. It is also easily adjustable and decently durable. Finally, the Meteor is rated for climbing and ski touring! This is great for those looking to buy one helmet for a wide range of uses.
- Black Diamond Vector – Less expensive than the Meteor and a bit more durable all around, the Vector has all the features you need and is still lightweight and comfortable. Not quite as many vents make this helmet slightly warmer than other weight conscious models.
- Petzl Boreo – An all-around good climbing helmet, the Boreo is durable and sufficient. It’s a little heavier than other models and less adjustable. But, it comes at a great price point and will last a long time with proper use.

A correctly fitted helmet should feel as if an evenly distributed pressure is continuously being exerted around the head and cheeks. Helmets, like shoes, will break in. For this reason, the helmet should fit as tight as you can stand to wear it. Once fastened, make sure the helmet cannot be pulled off of the head in any direction. If the helmet moves significantly, the helmet is too big. First time helmet buyers tend to choose helmets that are too loose or too big. If the helmet does not fit well, it cannot deliver the level of protection you need.

The RaceQuip Snell SA-2010 Rated Full Face helmet is an all new design that incorporates prepreg construction based on steel tooling. In this process, the optimum ratio of resin is impregnated into the composite fabric (a combination of carbon fiber, kevlar, and FRP) prior to moulding. Next, the prepreg is forced into the steel mould using a pressurized head form, then heat cured to precise thermal specifications. This manufacturing technique eliminates excess resin weight and ensures uniform shell thickness while leaving the outer surface smooth and blemish free. The shell is then mated to an expanded polystyrene (EPS) liner to create a modern lightweight helmet design.

Since its founding in 1957, the Snell Memorial Foundation has independently tested manufacturer’s helmets. Its first safety standards for protective headgear were issued for auto racing in 1959. Subsequently, other specific helmet standards for motorcycling, equestrian sports, bicycling, rollerblading and skateboarding, snowboarding and skiing, and karting have been issued. These standards address performance, not specific materials or design. Periodically, utilizing specially designed test equipment, the Foundation upgrades its specifications on performance characteristics of helmets to keep pace with advances in materials, helmet technology and design.
Understanding Snell Ratings
A Snell SA rating is the most widely accepted standard for racing helmet safety in the world. The Snell standard is updated once every five years, generally improving helmet protection each time. Effective October 1, 2015, helmet manufacturers will be allowed to sell Snell 2015 rated helmets, meeting Snell’s latest and most stringent safety standards. The helmets will be clearly marked with the Snell 2015 safety label. An overview of the improvements to the Snell SA2015 standard versus the Snell SA2010 standard is explained here.
Additional helmet standards exist for karting helmets and children’s helmets. The SFI Foundation also has a helmet standard that most US sanctioning bodies accept.
Generally racers wear what is required by their sanctioning bodies. Each sanctioning body establishes which standards it will accept and how old the rating can be. Be sure to keep up with your sanctioning body and local track requirements.
Our advice to Safety Inspectors and Racing Authorities is that they continue to accept helmets in good condition and certified either to the current or immediately previous Snell standard.
Snell urges everyone to replace their Snell certified helmets routinely no later than five years after the helmet is first worn. However, even by this conservative advice, many current Snell SA2010 certified helmets still have years of service in them. Unless a helmet has been damaged, or hasfive or more years of use, or is no longer accepted by safety inspectors or track authorities, there may be no need to replace it.
Please direct any questions, comments and requests for copies of the Snell SA2015 Standard to [email protected] or call 916-331-5073.

ESTABLISHED IN 1927
Summit Pass (formerly Summit Ski Area) is the second oldest continuously operating ski area in the United States and the oldest ski area in the Pacific Northwest. In 1959 a T-bar was installed and in 1966 the present lodge was constructed. In 1980 the current 2,300 feet long chairlift was built, providing access to approximately 3.5 miles of trails. Summit Pass base elevation is approximately 4,000 ft.
In June 2018, R.L.K. and Company, acquired 100% of the stock for what is formerly known as Summit Ski Area under a special use permit granted by the U.S. Forest Service (USFS). In October 2021, a special use permit was granted for the land between Summit Pass and Timberline in order to combine the two ski areas into one. This increases Timberline’s vertical from 3,690′ to 4,540′, the longest vertical terrain in the United States.
The vision for Summit Pass is to continue to operate as a family-oriented, affordable, community-friendly ski area, while upgrading facilities to connect Government Camp with Timberline. Upgrades are also planned to create a year-round recreation hub for outdoor activities fostering experiences and education, with an interest in increasing engagement with youth and underserved communities so as to increase opportunities and diversity in the outdoors.

Tens of thousands of activists march outside U.N. climate summit in Glasgow
Tens of thousands of climate activists marched Saturday through the Scottish city hosting the U.N. climate summit, physically close to the global negotiators inside but separated by a vast gulf in expectations, with frustrated marchers increasingly dismissive of the climate talks and demanding immediate action instead to slow global warming.
The mood at the protest in Glasgow was upbeat despite the complaints and bursts of rain. Climate protests were also held across Europe, including in London, Paris, Dublin, Copenhagen, Zurich and Istanbul.
Protesters condemned government leaders around the world, saying the climate talks so far have failed to produce the fast action needed. Activist Greta Thunberg on Friday condemned the talks as just more “blah, blah, blah.”
“We’re having these conversations, but there’s no policies to actually back them,” said Daze Aghaji, a marcher from London at the Glasgow demonstration, shouting over the steady beat of the drums.
“And on top of that, the real people should be in the room,” Aghaji said, echoing complaints that the Glasgow summit has too sharply limited participation by the public. “How are we expecting to make decent policy when the people who are the stakeholders of this aren’t even present in the room?”
Marchers held signs with messages including “Code Red for Humanity,” “Stop big polluters,” “COP26, we are watching you” or simply “I’m angry.” One sign asked “If not you, then who? If not now, then when?”
Megan McClellan, 24, of Glasgow said she doubted that climate negotiators were listening.
Climate activists attend a protest organized by the Cop26 Coalition in Glasgow, Scotland, on Saturday, Nov. 6, 2021, which is the host city of the COP26 U.N. Climate Summit. The protest was taking place as leaders and activists from around the world were gathering in Scotland’s biggest city for the U.N. climate summit, to lay out their vision for addressing the common challenge of global warming.

“This is a very easy thing for them to ignore. They’re nice and comfortable” inside the summit conference center, she said, which is ringed by steel fences.
But her friend Lucette Wood, 30, of Edinburgh disagreed.
“They might not actually do anything about it but they pretend that they do … and they will just put it off for 20-30 years,” Wood said.
Whether a tactic to increase pressure on governments or a rejection of the negotiations, Thunberg’s dismissive talk of the two-week summit — which has another week to go — has resonated inside and outside the summit site. Government leaders and negotiators say they are equally aware as marchers of the urgency of their task, with time slipping away to rein in pollution from fossil fuels before the Earth faces much higher levels of warming.
Marcher Jason Cook, 54, came to Glasgow with two friends and all three wore helmets bearing the word “blah.”
Cook, like other marchers, echoed Thunberg’s words: “We don’t want to hear any more blah, blah, blah,” he said.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been one of many global leaders acknowledging Thunberg’s phrase as they defend progress made by governments in raising promises of emissions cuts and climate financing.
Global leaders pledge to fight climate change…
Elizabeth May, a Canadian member of parliament and 16-time participant in the U.N. climate talks, joined the Glasgow demonstrators Saturday.
“Overwhelmingly, the protests make a difference,” May said. “Most of the people on the inside are here in their hearts and sometimes physically.”
Inside the huge U.N. conference venue, negotiators knuckled down for a seventh straight day of talks amongst almost 200 nations to finish draft agreements that can be passed to government ministers for political approval next week. Among the issues being haggled over are a fresh commitment to capping global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit), getting countries to review their efforts more frequently to increase the pressure for deeper cuts, and providing more financial support for poor nations to adapt to climate change.
The summit’s president, Alok Sharma, told reporters he understood protesters’ frustration.
“I think we have overall made progress,” Sharma said Saturday. “I think people have been constructive in the negotiating rooms.”
“We are getting to the point where the rubber hits the road, where we’re going to have to make, you know, tough decisions” by government officials, he said. “I don’t, certainly do not, underestimate the difficulty of the task which is ahead of us.”

Gamma series welding helmets set a new standard for welding safety, Articles
Leading international welding equipment manufacturer Kemppi has launched a new series of Gamma helmets for welders. Gamma products not only provide the highest level of eye, face and respiratory protection when welding, cutting, gouging, but also include work lights for improved visibility and safety in low light conditions. It reduces fatigue, increases comfort and protects against health hazards associated with welding.When used with the new air filtration unit, Gamma products meet the highest European classification for respiratory protection – class Th4. Gamma models have set a new standard in safety and protection for welders around the world.
Health hazards in welding shops are a serious problem for both employers and workers. Intense light and heat from the welding arc are major hazards for welders and staff in the welding area.In addition, a large amount of smoke is emitted during welding, which contains vapors of heavy metals and mineral microparticles, which contributes to environmental pollution and is potentially hazardous to the health of welders.
As a rule, welders inhale more than 4000 liters of air during an 8-hour work shift, and if the worker’s respiratory system is not protected, the constituents of the welding aerosol can penetrate deeply into the structure of the lungs. This can lead to serious health risks from long-term and short-term exposure to polluted air.
The new Gamma series protects welders by 99.8% from airborne gaseous and mechanical contaminants. In the models of the Gamma series of welding helmets, a new original power system of the filter device is used, which provides deep air purification in the welder’s breathing zone in accordance with modern international safety standards. This feature of welding helmets Gamma significantly distinguishes them from known similar personal protective equipment for welders.
The new GTh4 respiratory system installed in the Gamma operates on the principle of “positive air pressure”. It is powered by a self-contained filter unit with a battery pack or from an external source of clean air. Such a protection system prevents the ingress of hazardous welding fumes into the welder’s breathing zone and provides the worker with clean air during work. In addition, blowing with “fresh air” lowers its temperature under the welding helmet, which improves the comfort and safety of the welder.
The filter unit PFU 210e is belt-mounted and powered by a battery. It does not restrict the freedom of movement of the welder in the work area and provides high filtration performance. In addition, in some models of helmets, it is possible to connect to an external air system, if this is provided by the relevant standards when performing special welding work.
When developing the welding helmet, the specialists took into account all the wishes of the welders regarding the optical system.The new Gamma has high optical quality light protection filters. LiFE + Color auto-dimming technology offers greater visibility, and lifting the welding shield reveals a 198 cm2 transparent protective shield for a superb panorama of the workplace. All of these features increase the accuracy and safety of the work, and reduce eye fatigue and fatigue in the welding area. The Auto Darkening Welding Filters are easy to set up with the “Remote-RC” function.The remote control buttons are located at the top of the inner surface of the mask body, which protects them from shock and damage. Also, such an arrangement of buttons allows welders to quickly and conveniently adjust the filter, even directly during welding, cutting or gouging operations.
In addition to the main advantages, the new Gamma has a number of features. This is primarily the adjustment of the axis for the balance of the welding helmet (GapView function).To improve visibility and enhance comfort and safety in low light conditions, the XFA models include LED work lamps (70 lumens). To ensure maximum comfort and to suit the welder’s preference, the ComFlex headband is provided with good flexibility for a perfect fit of the helmet to the shape of the head. Also, to reduce fatigue, the outboard weight of the helmet is evenly distributed.
Depending on the working environment, welders can choose from seven Gamma models, which include standard face and eye protection as well as advanced high-end respiratory solutions.Kemppi’s Gamma products provide welders with the highest level of eye, face and respiratory protection all day long.
90,000 For the first time in two years, the G20 summit brought back multilateralism to global governance – International Panorama
ROME, October 31. / TASS /. The summit of the leaders of the G20 countries, which was held in person for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, ended on Sunday in Rome. Italy, chairing the G-20, expressed satisfaction with the results achieved, which are enshrined in the final joint declaration.
The main result is called the fact that the “twenty” “returned” and consolidated the principle of a multilateral approach to solving world problems. This principle was defended by Italy and shared by all countries without exception. Thus, speaking at the summit via video link, Russian President Vladimir Putin noted the leading role of the G20 “in the formation of uniform, fair and, which is very important, transparent rules for climate regulation.”
TASS collected the key points of the meeting and the main agreements reached.
At the closing press conference, the host of the summit – Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi – acknowledged that reaching an agreement on climate, a key topic on the agenda, “was not easy”, but it became possible due to the fact that “Russia and China have moved from their positions “and” have accepted the scientific validity of limiting warming to 1.5 degrees [Celsius], although this leads to significant efforts. ”
In the declaration, the G20 countries undertake to take measures to limit warming within the specified framework.Draghi also noted that the G20 for the first time recognizes the scientific rationale for limiting warming to 1.5 degrees.
For acting German Chancellor Angela Merkel, this was “setting a more ambitious goal than specified in the Paris climate agreement.” Whereas UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, leaving Rome, wrote on Twitter that the summit did not live up to expectations, although hopes “did not die completely.”
All world leaders from the Italian capital move to Glasgow, where the 26th session of the Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change has already formally opened.There, the discussion will continue on measures to combat climate change, which requires achieving zero greenhouse gas emissions. The G20 declaration does not set a clear timeline, “taking into account the needs of a number of countries,” but specifies “the middle of the century”. Draghi is confident that zero emissions “can be achieved by 2050, but gradually.”
Fighting the pandemic and corporate tax
The decisions in the field of combating the pandemic and in the economic sphere were recognized as two unconditional achievements of the summit.
In terms of the pandemic, the G20 has supported the goal of vaccinating 70% of the world’s population by mid-2022, which requires additional efforts – both material and logistical. According to estimates of the International Monetary Fund, so far about € 20 billion is not enough to achieve this goal.
In the field of economics, the leaders of the G20 countries at the highest political level secured the decision to impose a minimum global tax of 15% on large corporations, which is to come into force in 2023.This decision was taken for a long time and had been prepared for a long time, including throughout the entire year of Italy’s chairmanship. US President Joe Biden, who defended this measure, is confident that the introduction of a minimum global taxation for large companies will change the global economy.
Although this was the first time in two years that this meeting of the leaders of the G20 countries was held in person, not all world leaders participated in it in person. In addition to Putin, President of the People’s Republic of China Xi Jinping took part in the summit via video link.Many local observers have noted that the physical absence of these two leaders diminishes the potential for solutions. However, both Russia and China expressed their positions and made a significant contribution to the conclusion of the summit.
Thus, the issue of mutual recognition of vaccine certificates was reflected in the final declaration. The G20 countries have spoken in favor of common standards for international travel, including requirements for vaccination certificates. The Russian leader called for mutual recognition of vaccines and vaccine certificates and noted that unfair competition leads to the fact that still not all countries of the world can get access to vaccines and other resources.
Daniil Medvedev shook the Grand Slam – Sport – Kommersant
The final of the US Open, in which the first and second numbers of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) ratings Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev met, ended with an unexpected victory of the Russian in three games. Thus, the 34-year-old Serb stopped one step away from a record 21st Grand Slam title and a unique achievement of the 21st century – winning all four majors in one season.Medvedev, after defeats to Rafael Nadal in the final of the US Open two years ago and from the same Djokovic at the finish of this year’s Australian Open, became only the third Russian tennis player to achieve a triumph of this level. Previously, the same thing, but only Yevgeny Kafelnikov and Marat Safin succeeded twice.
The winner did not receive everything in this case. However, listening to the ovations that the New York public accompanied almost every phrase of the loser at the awards ceremony, he was hardly upset about this.And Novak Djokovic kept sobbing into the microphone until he came to the phrase that Daniil Medvedev could be proud of: “You deserve this victory like no other.” Tears of resentment and powerlessness came to the eyes of the Serb, but he still managed to restrain them. For more on this warm and clear New York Sunday, he really was not enough …
In six games on the way to the final, Djokovic spent 17 hours 26 minutes on the courts, or almost five hours more than Medvedev. And tracing this not the easiest path, it was easy to find one pattern: in the last four matches, the opponents took the first set from the Serb.Therefore, when Medvedev succeeded in doing the same, taking someone else’s serve in the opening game, Djokovic hardly felt doomed. He understood that the most important thing was yet to come.
And it came very soon, when, at the beginning of the second game, Medvedev’s serve twice hung up. In the second game, he bounced back from 0:40, and in the fourth he saved two more break points. Only then, Djokovic, who before only by individual gestures could discern irritation from what was happening, really gave vent to his feelings, splitting the racket on the court.
Serb is not one of those players who definitely benefit from such outbursts of emotions. Various examples can be found in his very long sports life, but now the problem was that Medvedev looked like a complete master of the situation.
That is, a piece, if not a paradoxical situation developed: little depended on the strongest tennis player in the world in the middle of the match.
At that time, however, Djokovic still looked like a great master who won 27 matches in a row at Grand Slam tournaments.He was still trying to wind himself up, earning glasses with his signature, spreading combinations. But Medvedev was not embarrassed by either this or the tremendous support that the stands provided to his great rival. Tennis New York, which dreamed of witnessing a rare triumph and coming off in full as compensation after long months of the coronavirus epic, was testing Medvedev by hook or by crook. Perhaps even fiercer than Djokovic himself.
But the Russian, somewhere deep within himself, drew the very reserves of moral strength that he lacked in the two previous major finals.Medvedev did not react to any caustic applause after unsuccessful first serves, or to rare mistakes of his own, and at decisive moments he acted simply flawlessly, churning out a new ace or stitching the other half of the court with another irresistible blow.
A master of tactical combat, capable of enduring an incredibly long time, Djokovic, of course, already understood what the case smelled like, but continued to look for moves. He tried to break the rhythm, to run to the net more often – sometimes even right after the serve, but nothing helped.The main match of life clearly did not work out, and then there was a broken racket, which became a demonstration of its own impotence. It is not surprising that in the fifth game of the second game, the demoralized Serb again allowed Medvedev to make a break, and soon the Russian’s advantage reached two sets.
Then the right moment has come to remember that actually Djokovic has already gotten out of similar cataclysms twice this year, including in the final of Roland Garros, where Stefanos Tsitsipas did not manage to put the squeeze on him. But for this, again, Medvedev’s help was required, and he was adamant, having caught the same invulnerable state of mind as Marat Safin in 2000 in an ideal final for him against Pete Sampras.Having lost four games in a row in the third game, the Serb could only grin ironically, which for him is usually a completely bad sign. And yet, with another effort of will, he made Medvedev go through the classic final test of the last game.
Having earned the first match point, the Russian finally gave the 23,000th Arthur Ash court pleasure, having lost the serve after two consecutive double faults. And even made another one in the second matchball, already in the tenth game with the score 40:15.
But the third matchball in the third final for Daniil Medvedev at the majors on the third wedding anniversary, to the delight of his wife sitting next to him, was still the last.
As a result – 6: 4, 6: 4, 6: 4 in 2 hours 15 minutes. The great mission of Novak Djokovic, to the completion of which he had only a step, turned out to be impossible: the Grand Slam, and with it the 21st title in the majors, remained unconquered, for which Daniil Medvedev almost in all seriousness had to apologize to New York. But he did it with taste and tact, at the same time confessing his love to his wife and giving the Serb a reciprocal compliment.
“I haven’t told anyone this yet, but for me you are the best in the world ever,” he said. And the moved Djokovic finally smiled sincerely. A beautiful ending and worthy words that may serve as an epigraph for something very significant. Still, Daniil Medvedev is only 25 years old. And he has enough time to bypass the number of victories at the majors of their two-time champions Evgeny Kafelnikov and Marat Safin.
90,000 Daniil Medvedev showed concentration – Kommersant FM – Kommersant
After winning the US Open, Daniil Medvedev is tipped into the first rackets of the world and is offered to be presented for a state award.The Russian won the Grand Slam tournament on September 12 and became the third Russian tennis player in history to do so. The 25-year-old athlete defeated Serb Novak Djokovic in the final. In the ATP ranking, Medvedev is still the second racket of the world. However, after winning the US Open, he became one of the country’s most titled tennis players. What allowed Daniil Medvedev to achieve success so quickly? About this – Vladimir Rasulov.
Daniil Medvedev, in comparison with other world tennis stars, took up the racket relatively late.He first appeared on the court at only six years old. Moreover, at first, his parents did not plan to connect their son’s life with sports. The boy began to go to the Moscow Region section, and in parallel, until the ninth grade, he studied at the Physics and Mathematics Lyceum. He graduated from high school as an external student and entered the Faculty of Applied Economics and Commerce of MGIMO. But he ended up leaving school to pursue a tennis career.
In March 2010, Medvedev won the Russian Under-14 Tennis Team Championship.In 2014 he moved to France with his family. There he continued to play tennis at the Academy of Antibes and four years later won the first title in the tournament of the Association of Professional Tennis Players. To achieve such progress Daniil Medvedev was largely helped by his human qualities, says the honored trainer of Russia Boris Sobkin: “In life he is a calm, very educated, polite, well-mannered young man. The chess player is on the court and reads the opponent very well. Medvedev has a very high, not only tennis, IQ.Thinking player. Yes, certain points in the technique could have been better, but I don’t know such a player, including Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, who has nothing to work on. ”
But tennis fans remember another trait of Daniil Medvedev. The Russian often played in international competitions very emotionally and, after failures, often broke his rackets on the court. In addition, the athlete could quarrel with rivals and even with spectators. From time to time it got from the Russian tennis player and the judges.For example, in 2017 at the Wimbledon tournament, Daniil Medvedev demanded to replace the referee, and after the defeat he threw a few coins in the direction of the tower. For this he was fined $ 14.5 thousand. However, the tennis player himself admitted in an interview that he was not very happy with his behavior: “In life I am a calm person. I don’t know why all my demons come out when I play tennis. Especially there were a lot of problems with behavior when I played at the junior level. I don’t want to lose because I lost my temper or lost concentration because of the fans or because of the referee.I want to lose because I was worse on the court than my opponent. ”
Daniil Medvedev reached the Grand Slam finals twice before winning the US Open. However, in 2019 at the US Open, he lost the trophy to the Spaniard Rafael Nadal. And in February 2021 he lost to Serb Novak Djokovic in the final meeting at the Australian Open. It was not easy for Medvedev to maintain maximum concentration at such tournaments for a long time, but by September the Russian was able to psychologically prepare for the matches, and this is what helped him win, says the correspondent of the Kommersant Sports Department Yevgeny Fedyakov: “Of course, working with a psychologist who is at this tournament was present, and lately often travels with Medvedev, she said.He managed to maintain the maximum level of his play throughout the match. This is what he very often succeeded in at less significant tournaments and which he did not succeed due to psychology and a protracted five-set format at Grand Slam tournaments at decisive moments. ”
Now Daniil Medvedev is the first racket in Russia. He has earned over $ 17 in prize money throughout his career. And recently the whole world learned that a tennis player is fond of video games. The Russian, after defeating Novak Djokovic, unusually noted his triumph: he suddenly fell on his left side on the court and stuck out his tongue.Medvedev later explained that this is called a “dead fish”, and this is how they celebrate winning a FIFA game on PlayStation.
90,000 Gift exchange, dinner at Eden and Trump’s gloating: how the G7 summit is going
No matter how Johnson drove Biden across the English sands, the American president still imagines a Russian one. Judging by the cover of the latest issue of Time, the G7 summit looks more like Biden’s collective “warm-up” before a really important meeting.During the warm-up, everyone has their own “uniform”: for example, Jill Biden and Merkel preferred all shades of red, and the male leaders preferred blue ties in the Biden range. And at the round table they sat down so that the “overseas” Trudeau and Biden sat facing the “sandy-sea” panorama.
For the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, G7 leaders meet face to face, but they have to work with their elbows to avoid catching COVID-19. The host of the summit Boris Johnson warmly welcomes the President of France and addresses him by his name – Emmanuel.Both eyes shine with joy, although just a few hours ago Emmanuel said the British had no chance in the Northern Ireland customs negotiations.
“This is not a problem between the United Kingdom and France. This is a problem with Europe. I remind you that it was the British, not the Europeans, who decided to leave. If, after six months, they declare that they cannot abide by the terms of the treaty, it means a loss of respect. to everything, “said French President Emmanuel Macron.
Everyone at the summit has their own interest.And although Johnson is in the center of the general photo, the main figure is, of course, Biden. After being harsh on Trump’s allies, the current American leader is reassuring. And so much so that the environment has to closely monitor him. The day before, on an informal walk with his wife, he almost got lost in a cafe.
Today, instead of listening to Johnson opening the meeting, Biden was curious about the gift in front of him, which was given to each of the summit participants.The President of the United States and the Prime Minister of Great Britain exchanged personal gifts the day before. Johnson presented Biden with a photograph of Frederick Douglas, one of the leaders of the American movement to abolish slavery. I got a bicycle and a helmet in return.
The leaders signed a new Atlantic charter, the previous one was signed in 1941 by Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Johnson, by the way, does not like Churchill’s term “special relationship” with the United States. It seems to him that the UK is thereby belittled, relegating the role of a junior partner in this alliance.But in the United States, they believe that this is the real state of affairs. Biden not only posted a photo in which he patronizingly pats the British prime minister on the shoulder, but also invited Chancellor Merkel, not Johnson, to pay him his first official visit.
In words, building up relations with European partners in a new way, the United States does not change its habits and acts in the way that is of interest to them at the moment. The Polish authorities have already been added to the number of those offended. Biden is about to meet with Putin, but refuses to speak with his loyal president of Poland.
– Unfortunately, the American delegation that has arrived in Europe, led by Biden, is so excited to meet with Putin that they did not find time to meet with the allies of the eastern flank.
The malevolent voice of his predecessor, Donald Trump, is heard from the United States. He assures that the democrats have spoiled relations with Russia, and now they themselves do not know how to deal with it.
“Good luck to Biden in your interaction with Putin, stay awake at the meeting and please convey my best wishes to him,” Donald Trump said.
But Russia and China will be discussed at the summit tomorrow. Today’s topic of discussion sounds global – the world after the pandemic. “To restore is better than it was” – this is the slogan the British presidency addressed to the partners.
“It’s wonderful to see each of you in person. I can tell you there is a huge difference in communication. We need to make sure we learn from the pandemic,” said Boris Johnson, British Prime Minister.
In the meantime, fighters for the environment have gathered on the shore of the bay.They were peaceful demonstrators. They nestled comfortably on the beach, demanding from world leaders not words, but deeds.
In the evening, guests will be received by Queen Elizabeth II and the heir to the throne, Prince Charles. Dinner will be served for the summit participants in the Botanical Park called “Eden”.
Behind this idyll on the golden sand, of course, not everything is smooth. In addition, without the participation of other global players, the seven, even if very rich countries, are not able to solve world problems today.Hence the constant mentions of Russia and China, towards which those gathered here also do not have a single approach.

90,000 The helmet of the heavenly horseman was found by ethnographers in Ugra
Ethnographers from the Institute of Archeology and Ethnography of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences told about the results of the past field season on the pages of the publication of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences “Science in Siberia”.This year, scientists worked on the territory of the Khanty-Mansiysk and Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrugs. In the home shrines of the Khanty and Mansi, experts discovered several unique items, including those related to the worship of the heavenly horseman Mir-susne-hum.
Mir-susne-hum is considered the patron saint of the family, and therefore is revered everywhere. The collection of the attributes of this cult was replenished with sacrificial blankets of the middle of the 20th century and a heroic helmet. The headdress got this name because of its size.The attribute was used during the sacrifice, but was not put on the head, but placed on the back of the horse. The helmet was found in the 1920s, and coins from the 1920s were found in the inner pocket for additional sacrificial money.
In addition, scientists have collected material on the patron spirits that each family had. Domestic deities were created from scarves tied with a belt or a dressed wooden figurine. Coins are hidden inside the figures, by which you can establish the date of creation, the earliest thing belongs to the end of the 18th century.
Another important find is a scarf made of, probably, nettle fabrics and a fragment of a blue-red flap made of vegetable thread. Scientists have to determine the basis of the fabric and the dyes.
“This year’s absolutely unique find – a scarf made of probably nettle fabrics – is an example of Mansi embroidery, the tradition of which disappeared in the late 19th – early 20th centuries. The last samples of such headscarves got into museums even before the October Revolution, after which no museum in Russia received such items.They are almost impossible to find, they have not survived. The uniqueness lies in the fact that over the past hundred years this is the only item from traditional embroidery that has come to the attention of researchers and will end up in the museum fund, ”said Arkady Baulo.
The level of preservation of objects is different, but absolutely all finds are important for ethnographers. The manufacturing technologies for some things have already been lost, and after 50 years scientists will not be able to find anything at all.
The found items were transferred to the Museum of the SB RAS and the State District Museum of Nature and Man in Khanty-Mansiysk.
It should be noted that in the Khanty-Mansiysk District, special attention is paid to the study of the history of the native land. In December 2016, the scientific and educational project “Centuries-old Yugra” was launched, which includes public lectures, competitions, quizzes, a historical ball, anniversaries of individual cities and regions, archaeological expeditions and excavations.
In 2018, the project was recognized as a priority; as a result of its implementation, a multivolume “Academic History of Ugra” and a textbook on the history of the region will appear.By the way, last year, on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the Khanty-Mansiysk District, a jubilee volume of the academic edition was published. The authors focused on information about the latest archaeological finds, documents and photographs from archives that have not been previously published. Eight more volumes of the monograph will see the light in the coming years.
