Alaphilippe Takes Stage 10 of Tour de France, Nationals' Bryce Harper Wins Home Run Derby, Usain Bolt in Talks to Play Soccer and NJ Receives 5 More Betting Applications
French cyclist Julian Alaphilippe has won stage 10 of the Tour de France, according to BBC Sport. This marks the 26 year-old's first career stage win of the Tour. Currently, Belgium's Greg van Avermaet is leading, but may lose ground in the coming stages.
Team Sky and the other general classification teams know Van Avermaet, who is not a pure climber, should still lose the race lead over the next two days in the Alps but this was a superb ride to keep his yellow jersey into an eighth day.
Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper won the Home Run Derby yesterday, hitting 19 homers, in the prelude to tonight's MLB All-Star Game. ESPN quotes Harper paying respect to his hometown crowd at Nationals Park:
"This wasn't only for me and my family and everybody like that, but this is for, you know, the cook, the guy that works the front and the people that work upstairs," Harper said. "I mean, this is the whole city of D.C. I was very fortunate to be able to bring this back to them and do it here."
Usain Bolt, who retired from sprinting last year, is in talks to play soccer for a pro team in Australia, NPR reports. The Central Coast Mariners of Australia's A-League are considering Bolt. The team's CEO, Shaun Mielekamp, expressed skepticism about the move but also enthusiasm at the possibility.
"We won't know until it happens. It may not happen," Mielekamp said. "We've just got to keep a very level-headed approach to us."
"When he [Bolt] does perform and when he does score a goal, that's the big moment," he said. "That's the bit that everyone wants. Let's not shut the door on that opportunity. Let's see if it will become a reality."
The Associated Press reports that New Jersey's director of the state Division of Gaming Enforcement, David Rebuck, said that five new sports betting applications have been received in anticipation for football season. This follows news that sports betting took in $16.4 million USD in the first two weeks of being operational. Rebuck expressed confidence that more applicants will be approved.
"I fully expect that by Aug. 1 we will see additional properties up and running," he said.
