WASHINGTON, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- Top seed Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic suffered a surprise defeat to France's Caroline Garcia in the second round of the US Open on Wednesday.
"We are delighted to enter this exciting new partnership with TCL, following our hugely successful collaboration over the last two years," FIBA Secretary General Andreas Zagklis said.
Calling systemic racism one of the two "pandemics" afflicting the United States, Lurie said during his annual State of the Eagles address that change will not happen until "we realize we're responsible for it."
Garcia looked untouchable in the first set and for much of the second, blasting 30 winners and breaking Pliskova's serve three times en route to the 6-1, 7-6 (2) victory.
The competition in Lausanne's Place de l'Europe played host to a fascinating duel between Duplantis and two-time world champion Sam Kendricks from the United States, whose best jump was 6.02 meters.
Rondon continued to demonstrate his prowess in the second half. In the 48th minute, the Venezuelan striker assisted Swedish winger Sam Larsson to stretch the lead for Dalian.
The announcement was made Thursday at the IFA, Internationale Funkausstellung, the world's leading trade show for consumer electronics and home appliances, in Berlin.
A source told Xinhua, they have paid 50 percents of the negotiated fees at the initial stage of the three-year circle.
"In the end it got too dark to go for 6.15 meters and I felt it was unsafe to continue any further," said the world silver medalist. "I felt I was in the zone. But you have to be prudent."
Valter, 22, broke free during the final few kilometers and the peloton was unable to catch him.
"These are needless deaths. Needless. We should be similar to most countries on the planet, and yet, we are an embarrassment, and a tragic embarrassment," Lurie added.
