Women’s World Cup 2019: Ex-Canada midfielder Kaylyn Kyle claims she received death threats after blasting USA players U.S. women’s national team members have faced plenty of criticism for their enthusiastic celebrations during a 13-0 victory over Thailand in the World Cup Tuesday.Former USWNT goalkeeper Hope Solo thinks some of the celebrations went too far. In a column Wednesday in The Guardian, Solo wrote it was “tough for me to watch some of the US goal celebrations … considering the scoreline.” “One of the classiest things I saw was Carli Lloyd going directly to Sukanya Chor Charoenying, Thailand’s goalkeeper, after the game,” Solo wrote. “Carli put her arm around her and supported her as they walked off the field. Thirteen goals on a goalkeeper has to be incredibly tough. As a goalkeeper, I don’t know how you deal with that many goals.”I’ve had five scored past me and that was a heavy blow. I never wanted to feel that way again and it took me a long time to get over it. It is something that I have never forgotten.”The USWNT faces Chile on Sunday at noon ET in a Group F match. “Should the US have taken their foot off the pedal against Thailand? Absolutely not,” Solo wrote.”You do want the game to be celebrated and you do want to see players having fun but at the same time I thought some of the celebrations were a little overboard. A few seemed planned out and I do know some players spend a lot of time thinking about celebrations for the fans. It’s not always necessary.” Related News Women’s World Cup 2019: USWNT star Megan Rapinoe responds to celebration criticism USWNT star Megan Rapinoe defended the team’s celebrations, saying it’s not fair to criticize the players, given they worked for years to reach the World Cup. But some critics contend the team could have been a bit more subdued given the score.”I felt bad for the Thailand team in general, especially when I saw some players physically dejected and actually give up,” Solo wrote. “That’s not good. By the end of the game they had nothing left and that was hard to see.”It would be easy to think Solo has an axe to grind, given the way her USWNT career ended. Solo played for the team from 2000 until 2016, and was a part of two gold-medal-winning Olympic squads and two World Cup winners. But her career ended after the USWNT suspended her in August 2016 after she referred to the Sweden team as “a bunch of cowards” following their defeat of the U.S. in the quarterfinals of the Rio Olympics. Solo endured her own criticism regarding sportsmanship at the time.But Solo did praise U.S. midfielder Carli Lloyd for something she did after Tuesday’s game.
22 Feb 2016 Girls’ golf is about to get rocking! Girls’ golf is about to get rocking with the launch of a campaign in nine counties to encourage new players. Girls Golf Rocks is all about attracting beginners to have fun, learn a new sport, get active and play alongside friends – with no pressure. Girl golfers from county squads will act as ambassadors to share their enjoyment and inspire other girls, aged five to 18. The campaign will return to Essex, where it was successfully trialled last year and attracted 90 girls to try the game. It will also start in Cheshire, Buckinghamshire, Dorset, Durham, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Norfolk and Nottinghamshire. In each county there will be free taster sessions at local clubs, supported by the squad players. These will be followed by four-week structured coaching programmes provided by PGA professionals at each of the clubs, with the county girl players mentoring the newcomers. All the girls who complete the coaching programme will be fitted with a free seven iron to help them continue to play. The finale will be a fun par three competition in each county when new young golfers can enjoy playing alongside their mentors. Currently, figures show that only 1% of golf club members are girls, with an average of just two per club. When Girls Golf Rocks was trialled in Essex last summer 90 youngsters were inspired to try the game. Of those, 40 went on to take a four-week coaching course; 30 played in the par three competition and six became golf club members. Wendy Cook, the Essex county junior organiser, said: “Girls Golf Rocks was an ambitious project last year, which required the involvement of many volunteers, and the result was absolutely fantastic. I’m really looking forward to the 2016 campaign and I’d like to say to all the Golf Girls who are about to Rock: I salute you!” The Essex ambassadors include Lily May Humphreys, the English U14 girls’ champion, who took up golf when she was 10. Lily May, aged 13, plays at Channels Golf Club and said: “I have made the best friends ever and not just girls, you can play golf with the boys as well. You also get to travel to different places and meet up with friends you’ve made from other parts of the country.” Alex Saunders of Bristol and Clifton Golf Club is one of the new ambassadors in Gloucestershire. The 20-year-old said: “I have loved playing golf since the age of 11 and during that time I have met some amazing people and made some incredible friends. Golf is really fun sport and I’m so glad I play.” Girls Golf Rocks is a joint project run by England Golf and the Golf Foundation with the support of county associations and sports partnerships. Lauren Spray, the England Golf Women & Girls’ Participation Manager, said: “Girls Golf Rocks sets out to focus on the fun, social and friendship aspects of golf rather than just the playing and coaching side and we’ve had brilliant success. “The ambassadors have been fantastic – they all love golf and they’re sharing their enthusiasm with our new players. They’ve also given us lots of feedback and really helped us give us a presence on Twitter @GirlsGolfRocks1 and Facebook.” Girls Golf Rocks coincides with a growing focus on the women and girls’ game, with the launch of the video campaign #ThisGirlGolfs which aims to challenge perceptions and inspire participation. The video features women and girls from all over the country and from different walks of life and backgrounds who are enjoying golf for many reasons and fitting it into their everyday lives.
