Aside from the tattered hem on his shirt and the quintessential hiker beard, you might never suspect that Andrew “Crash” Sherry has spent the better part of the past 18 months hiking.Originally from just outside of Melbourne, Australia, Crash is 29 and an engineer by trade. After thru-hiking the PCT in 99 days, Crash moved to London where he worked as a contractor for the local government. Then Brexit happened. The government laid off its contract employees, including Crash.He took to the mountains to wait out the turmoil. That summer of 2016, he hiked over 1,000 miles through the Alps of Switzerland, Italy, and France. During the winter that same year, he traversed some 380 miles of the Scottish Highlands, during which time he only saw the sun twice.Somewhere in between the glaciers of Switzerland and the knife-edge ridgelines of Scotland, Crash resolved to keep hiking so far as his savings could support him. Over the course of the past 10 months, he’s thru-hiked the PCT, the Wonderland Trail, the Sierra High Route, the Hayduke Trail, and the Arizona Trail. He’s now attempting the Triple Crown in a year, starting with a winter thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail.I caught up with him outside of Damascus, Va., just three weeks into his hike to see how he was faring in the record cold temperatures (and to deliver some much-needed gloves).Discovering The Triple CrownProbably a decade ago, I literally stumbled upon the Triple Crown Wikipedia page and I was like, what dumbasses would do this? Now I’m doing it.My First PCT Thru-hikeThere was definitely a learning curve. I was a good walker, but not a good hiker. I remember there was a 40-odd-mile waterless stretch, and I was hiking with the minimum amount of water. I ended up hiding out in a cave all day to not sweat. I learned a helluva lot. One of the biggest things was just learning to do it day after day after day. When I finished the PCT, I didn’t think I would ever do another thru-hike again. I was so tired.Toughest MomentFive people died on the PCT last year. It went from being one of the highest snow years to being 110 degrees in the valley. The heat wave coincided with peak snowmelt, and there are three rivers that you have to ford. I had to walk upriver from about 6,000 feet in elevation to over 10,000 feet to find places to pass. It took me 12 hours to do six trail miles that day. I didn’t have enough food. So I turned around, which was the hardest decision of my life. I knew it was the right decision, because there were three bigger rivers coming up which I didn’t want to get trapped between. I took about two weeks off, and when I went back, it wasn’t a problem at all to cross the rivers. But then in Oregon, fires erupted everywhere. I was in constant smoke.The Hardest Hiking Of My LifeThe Hayduke Trail (an 812-mile trail in southern Utah and northern Arizona) is off-route scrambling down into canyons and up and out of gullies. Water is scarce. But it’s so beautiful. It could go from a fairly boring dirt road to these huge canyons with some of the best sandstone walls I’ve ever seen in my life. Then the next minute I’d be along the Escalante River pushing through brush so thick it would slow me to a half-mile an hour. I would walk in the river and wade through it until my feet got too numb, then back in the brush till my feet warmed up.The A.T. in winterI started within a week of Christmas, just after a massive storm dropped off 10-12 inches, so there was a fair amount of snow and ice up on Springer Mountain. In the first three weeks I’ve gone through three storms, including one of the coldest arctic fronts the country has had in a long time.Christmas presentI was on Clingmans Dome in the Smokies on Christmas Day. It was -10 degrees. I had a frozen beard. An inch of snow had fallen the night before, all of the water sources had frozen up, but it was like a little magic wonderland that I had to myself. I didn’t see anyone up there that day. I couldn’t have asked for anything better really.The worst is yet to comeKnowing that more cold and snow await farther north, I got downtrodden for a couple of days mentally. I can’t snowshoe for 1,200 miles. That’s just unfeasible for me at least. I started questioning why I was out here, until I just realized like, who cares? Just hike a day at a time and if you’re not enjoying it, get off. So yeah, I’ve started enjoying it more since then.Go pro?Would I hike professionally if the opportunity presented itself? Bloody oath I would! I could not think of anything better than being reimbursed financially for following my passion.

The FFML tournament will be held every Saturday and Sunday, from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Western Indonesian Time (WIB).The best six teams from the previous tournament, with the addition of two other teams, Onic Olympus, the champion of the Free Fire Indonesia Masters spring event and Evos Esports, the champion of the 2019 Free Fire International Tournament, will compete against each other for the champion trophy. The winner of the Free Fire Indonesian Master will win Rp 800 million and the opportunity to represent the country on the international stage.The teams selected for the Free Fire Master League are the result of the earlier spring season, which took place earlier this year and lured 2 million e-sports athletes grouped in 514,000 teams from across the country.Youth and Sports Minister Zainudin Amali said the tournament had been a huge investment in e-sports talent.“We have seen good progress, with this tournament able to attract the attention of 2 million talents.” he said.Garena Indonesia director Hans Kurniadi Saleh said Garena had committed to continuously providing the arena for Indonesian e-sports athletes to perfect their skills and experience so they could reach a higher level.“We expect that many new talents and potential athletes will show up and be ready to bring victory for the country on international stages,” he said in a statement sent to The Jakarta Post recently.

Six sovereign wealth funds governing $2trn (€1.7trn) have formed an alliance to address climate change issues.The group includes the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, the Kuwait Investment Authority, the New Zealand Superannuation Fund, Norges Bank Investment Management (NBIM), the Public Investment Fund of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and the Qatar Investment Authority.Together they have formed the One Planet Sovereign Wealth Fund Working Group to integrate financial risks and opportunities related to climate change in the management of large, long-term asset pools.The group’s objective is to develop an environmental, social and governance (ESG) framework to address climate change issues and contribute to long-term value creation. The aim is to publish an ESG framework as well as methods and indicators in 2018.A statement announcing the working group said it would be crucial in the years ahead for all parties to take urgent action to close the gap between current greenhouse gases emissions and a level on par with limiting global warming below 2°C.“There is growing evidence that institutional investors that prioritise ESG through ownership and investment are also well positioned to reap financial benefits – and that is the intention of this group,” the statement said.The group will assist other sovereign funds in exploring ESG frameworks specifically appropriate to their roles and characteristics.A common platform around the business risks of climate change and the opportunities of an increasingly lower carbon economy did not currently exist among sovereign funds, the group’s statement said.However, some funds had already taken the lead in advancing ESG issues, it added.Notable examples included understanding the impact of the transition to a low-carbon economy and the physical risks of climate change on financial markets.With assets under management projected to reach more than $15trn by 2020, sovereign funds were increasingly prominent in global financial markets, the statement said.Given their size and long-term investment horizons, they were uniquely positioned to promote long-term value creation and sustainable market outcomes as their future returns were intrinsically linked to global growth and prosperity.

South African side, Kaizer Chiefs, has announced the signing of Ghanaian midfielder, James Kotei.The club made the move public on Wednesday after completing all the necessary formalities.Kotei was a key part of Tanzania side, Simba’s campaign, last season but the club declined to give him a new deal leading him to run down his contract.He was Simba’s midfielder of the season and he helped them in their run to the quarter final of the CAF Champions League.Kotei joins Chiefs on a three-year deal and he is expected to feature a lot for the club in the coming ABSA Premier League season.Last season, Chiefs finished 9th and they are determined to place better in the new season.They start the new campaign on August 4 at Highland Park.
The message from the Manchester City FC dressing room was what does not kill you makes you stronger after they completed their recovery to advance at AS Roma’s expense.Samir Nasri, Manchester City midfielderIt was really important to win because our target at the start of the season was to qualify from the group stage. I think we did it the hard way and it’s a kind of a miracle as well, considering where we were after four games when we had two points – I don’t recall any team in the Champions League who had two points after four games and qualified.In the dressing room [at half-time] the manager told us to remain calm and patient – we’re going to get the result. I don’t strike on goal really often to be honest. I wanted to play a pass to James Milner and they anticipated it a little bit so I had a little space open up, took it and, lucky me, it went straight in.I’ve no idea [how far we can go]. Last year we were great, but in February we had a couple of major players out injured and you never know what can happen in February. If everyone is at their best, we have a good chance because we have more Champions League experience; we know we can perform against big teams and now we know we can get a result away from home so why not? Milner hails City characterJames Milner, Manchester City midfielderThe Champions League campaign didn’t get off to the best of starts, the draw wasn’t kind to us again but we didn’t perform the way we can. We put ourselves into a bit of a situation, but we managed to get out of that and qualify and that’s the main thing. This team needs to be in the latter stages of the Champions League and we’re delighted to be there. We’ll take it step by step, but I definitely think the quality’s there to go far in this competition. This team responds when we need to win games. We did it to win the Premier League and we’ve done it again in the Champions League to win these two. Obviously we needed a bit of help in the other game tonight, but to beat Bayern and Roma, and to do it with a number of injuries, shows you what quality there is in the squad.Adem LjajiÄ‡, Roma forwardWe created plenty of chances, some big ones, but didn’t score. When you don’t score then your opponents get a chance and we knew that Man City were a team who could take their chances. All our games were good, apart from the one at home to Bayern but, in the end, we’ve not made it. Nobody would have imagined that we would have got here still playing to go through.©AFP/Getty ImagesFrancesco Totti attempts to find a gap We need to lift our heads immediately and get back to winning ways on Sunday. If we do well in the league, then we’ll be back. Now we’ve got the Europa League and it’s an important competition and a great one to be involved in.Radja Nainggolan, Roma midfielderIn the first half, we played good football and created chances. Losing this way really hurts. Until their goal, only we had created chances. This shows that we looked to win the game at all costs and we put in so much effort in the first half and this also contributed to the defeat. They have players who can score from one second to another.We weren’t lucky with [Kostas] Manolas hitting the post, also [José] Holebas and Gervinho went close. There were so many chances wasted. Now our aim is to win the league and we’ve got to do that at all costs. We’re also in the Europa League and we’ll look to go as far as possible. We’re still in the hunt for three titles.Manuel Pellegrini, Manchester City managerTrust was key. Against Roma in Manchester, we played our worst game of the season and we got a draw. But tonight we played the way we did in recent weeks, as we did against Bayern, and we got a deserved win. ©Getty ImagesSamir Nasri celebrates his opener on the hourThe better team won; Roma are a very good team and played very well too, but we put in our normal performance, pressed and used the ball well. We are a solid team, we’re recovering the ball in the correct way. I had a lot of trust in what we could do. This team deserves more credit.Rudi Garcia, Roma coachWe were lacking experience tonight and were unlucky too. In the first 15 minutes we had some good chances but didn’t convert them into even one goal. City were more efficient; that’s what a big team has to be.We know how difficult getting to the round of 16 was; this was the most difficult group. We needed something amazing and didn’t get that. City didn’t start this competition well, but they improved a lot. Tonight they showed how strong they are, even without some key players. If we want to play in this competition in the future – and we want to be in the UEFA Champions League every year – we have to be concentrated in Serie A. At the end of the winter we will play in the UEFA Europa League: it’s an important competition and we’ll try to use it to find the experience we need.We’re building a team to be as close as possible to the biggest clubs. I’m proud about what we’ve done since I’ve been here; tonight we lost the first final of the season but I’m sure we will have other matches like this and we will be ready for them.

The halftime show provides plenty of excitement during the bloated halftime break before the beginning of the second half.The 2020 Super Bowl halftime show performers are Shakira and Jennifer Lopez. The selection of the two Hispanic pop icons were deemed a perfect fit for Miami, the location of Super Bowl 54. It’s the first Super Bowl halftime show since the NFL partnered with Jay-Z and Roc Nation to lead “the league’s endeavors in music and entertainment.”The show should be an improvement over 2019 when fans questioned the selection of Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi and their performance was widely panned.Shakira and Lopez, each performing at the Super Bowl for the first time, will join a long list of artists who have been selected to headline the most-watched musical event of the year. Previous halftime performances include Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Prince and Bruno Mars among many others throughout the game’s history. Here’s everything to know about this year’s Super Bowl 54 halftime show, including expected start time and a full list of performances throughout the game’s history.MORE: Five worst Super Bowl halftime shows in NFL historyWho is performing during halftime of Super Bowl 54?Shakira and Jennifer Lopez are the Super Bowl 54 halftime performers. Neither have performed at the Super Bowl before.There wasn’t as much drama surrounding the selections as there was last year, when Rihanna refused to perform at the show in protest of Colin Kaepernick’s continued absence from the league. That likely explained why Maroon 5’s press conference in the leadup to the Super Bowl was canceled.What time does the Super Bowl halftime show start?The Super Bowl halftime show will likely start shortly after 8 p.m. ET.
