Schmitt joins Schmeichel for STS ‘Bet with the leaders’ campaign

first_img Related Articles StumbleUpon Polish wagering report highlights STS market dominance  August 17, 2020 Mateusz Juroszek – Non-stop STS will expand amid industry disruptions August 12, 2020 Share Three-time Olympic ski jump medallist Martin Schmitt has joined Peter Schmeichel as part of the STS ‘Bet with the Leaders’ campaign. Together with the legendary former Manchester United and Denmark goalkeeper, Schmitt – who won ski jumping gold for Germany in 2002 – will help to drive the STS international expansion through TV and digital platforms in all markets in which the bookmaker operates.This already includes more than 10 European markets after STS – Poland’s biggest bookmaker – struck a deal with BetConstruct for both sports betting and gaming content in February of this year.The campaign also includes a refreshed logo and visual identity for STS which, according to president Mateusz Juroszek, reflects the brand’s “modernity, sports character and dynamism”.He added: “For many years, Martin has led an exciting battle for leadership in the world of ski jumping. He is an excellent example of how determination and courage can lead to success. “These are the features that characterise STS, e.g. in terms of foreign expansion, which is why the cooperation with the three-time Olympic medalist perfectly fits our global communication strategy.”STS is the first Polish operator to expand outside of the country. It was inspired to drive international expansion after seeing a near tenfold increase to revenues in just six years – achieved through the right development of its betting offer and deployment of new functionality.

Pinelope to atone

first_imgMidweek racing continues at Caymanas Park today with a nine-race programme featuring a knotty open allowance race over 1200 metres to be contested by eight starters, including the recent winners GARY GLITTER and BLUE DIXIE.Also on the card is the annual renewal of the $350,000-$300,000 claiming race over 1100 metres for the Millard Ziadie Memorial Cup in which 11 will face the starter. Top contenders are the down in class pair of DIFERENTGENERATION and FORTUNEONEHUNDRED, along with SHADE OF BEAUTY.But the race of the day is definitely the three-year-old and up open-allowance sprint which not only features GARY GLITTER and BLUE DIXIE, but the talented filly PINELOPE, DREAMCOMETRUE, POLLY B, PROLIFIC PRINCESS and SIR BUDGET.Speed is strongly represented by POLLY B and SIR BUDGET, both of whom will ensure a cracking pace into the straight. Others expected to race prominently are GARY GLITTER, PINELOPE and PROLIFIC PRINCESS.TOO SHARPI suspect that the speed of SIR BUDGET and POLLY B should set up the race for the likes of GARY GLITTER, PINELOPE or BLUE DIXIE, who though scoring over a mile in the Alex Hamilton Trophy on January 28, beating the then favourite PINELOPE into third place, will not find the trip too sharp.The Dalton Sirjue-trained four-year-old colt GARY GLITTER has progressed along the right lines in recent months and was most impressive when scoring over this trip in overnight company recently. He could well start favourite on the strength of that performance and could win again. Strictly at the weights, however, the Patrick Fong-trained PINELOPE looks tempting with a mere 48.5kg and in-form apprentice Dane Dawkins in the saddle.Backed as if defeat was out of the question when finishing 21/2 lengths third to BLUE DIXIE over a mile on last, PINELOPE chased the leader SIR BUDGET, and although taking over on entering the straight, gave way to BLUE DIXIE on the rails a furlong out, but enjoys a 8.5kg swing with her old rival today and should stave off GARY GLITTER, who is allowing her 5.5kg.Other firm fancies on the card are MONEY MAGNET in the first race for three-year-olds, PROUD PRESIDENT (Dane Nelson up) ahead of BOUNCE in the sixth, along with the Steven Todd-trained DIFERENTGENERATION in the eighth and SURE STEP in the closing four-year-old and up maiden race over the straight, both with Nelson aboard.last_img read more

Ode to Mandela

first_imgThe passing on of Mr. Mandela to the other side, a man in his own class, a harbinger and full epitome of peace is a clarion call to Africa and the entire world to seek peace and harmony for the common good of humanity. It is our hope that South Africa after Madiba will rise and show the world what it is to forgive and forget, seeking peace and forging ahead for the common existence of all South Africans and thus carrying the legacy of Madiba to the next level.The long years of incarceration at Robben Island taught Madiba to be at peace with self and the environment, make use of his isolation and uplifting those who were faint hearted alongside him.Out of prison, the man did not bear any scars of hate, but forgiveness, peace and reconciliation ensured from him. He surprised too many not only in his native country but the world at large with his desire to forgive and let everyone in South Africa enjoy equal rights.Through his deeds he defied the status quo, modelled a paradigm shift, inspired a vision and challenged others to think like him. The Rainbow country was bornLike his idol the Indian peace icon, Mahatma Gandhi Mr. Mandela used peaceful tactics for dealing with the issues of racialism, segregation and apartheid and encouraged a common existence for all based on equal rights. He fought injustices out of prison and in prison. With persistence victory was won.  Closing of another chapter of the illustrious life of Madiba is indeed a dark day but we thank God as we celebrate his life. Such people do not come that easy and as the world mourns the challenge is: can we do all of us to live the legacy of that great individual and take his mantle? A selflessness Leader and a great believer in the contributions of others – that is the way to describe Mr. MandelaOther qualities that shaped the life of Mr. Mandela:Yearning for Knowledge – one of the familiar quotes underscores Mr. Mandela’s longing for education “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” he attended various universities and continued reading.Espoused Sacrifice – at great price could one give up fame of the Presidency and the tripling of power attached. He did not let power get to his head. In being so humble and giving, he allowed others to also emerge as leaders. This is as if the 27 years in prison were not enough and itsafter effects to his health which has culminated into his death..Skirmish against Conformity – Madiba made a number of decisions different from the current beliefs of the time, both in his personal and public life. Away from the status quo he challenged the system of the time and fashioned his own dream.Stubborn Sense of Fairness – thisempowered him to endure doing everything he believed was dead-on even when others went against it. And many other attributes.Madiba indeed has fought the fight and run his race and accounted for his time on this earth. Sweet will be the memories of this statesman, revolutionist, sportsman, teacher, friend, pioneer, a freedom fighter, hero, colossus, icon and simply a commonwealth-sincewe all want to identify with him and his achievements.Our prayer is that they shall arise others with the attributes of the Madiba. Africa needs them and the world needs them too.Goodbye Madiba.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
