Romanian Fabulous Triumph at PALM d`OR


Romanian movie director Cristian Mungiu has won Palme d’Or in the most important Movie Festival in the world, held at Cannes. His movie “4 luni, 3 saptamani si 2 zile” won another two awards at this 60th edition. Congratulations! … finally, the talent of young romanian directors is internationally recognized. Proud to be romanian! (in this case).

In prima mansa a finalei Cupei Challenge, U Jolidon Cluj s-a impus pe teren propriu scor 32-23, in dauna formatiei din Serbia, Naisa Nis.

Sub privirile unei sali arhipline, handbalistele de la U Jolidon Cluj au reusit sa invinga Naisa Nis cu 32-23, facand astfel un pas important spre cucerirea trofeului.
Prima repriza a fost echilibrata, ambele echipe aflandu-se la conducere pe tabela de scor. Mai multe greseli in apararea celor din Cluj au facut ca spre finalul reprizei handbalistele adverse sa preia conducerea. Clujencele au reusit totusi sa intoarca diferenta si sa intre la pauza cu un avantaj minim, scor 14-13.

Repriza a doua a debutat sub auspicii favorabile pentru U Jolidon. Cele mai bune jucatoare au fost Senocico si Busuioceanu, care s-au dezlantuit in faza ofensiva reusind sa inscrie cateva goluri de senzatie. Treptat U Jolidon a inceput sa se desprinda de oaspete si astfel la final tabela indica 32-23.

Meciul retur al finalei, se va disputa pe 20.05, in Serbia.


Hendry, out of Crucibal!

In Monday afternoon’s second match Ali Carter knocked out my favourite snooker player, seven-time world champion Stephen Hendry (13-6).


Here are Stephen`s statements made after the game.

“It was the story of my season out there,” he said. “For some reason, I can’t reproduce the way I play in practice in a match.

“I don’t seem to be able to cue with the same freedom and therefore I can’t play my natural game. That’s like giving people a 50-point start in every frame.

“I’m obviously lacking confidence – I haven’t won a tournament for three years. If you haven’t got that ultimate self-belief, you will struggle.

“No one wants to hear how well you’re practising but it’s frustrating when you know how well you are playing.

“I’m taking a break now it’s the end of the season. I’ll get away from the game completely, take a holiday, spend time with my family and I’ll watch bits of this tournament to see who wins – but I don’t care a jot who wins.
