Mother of Italian listed on Malaysia plane says passport stolen
The mother of an Italian falsely listed as a passenger on a missing Malaysia Airlines flight said her son's passport had been lost, presumed stolen, in Phuket in 2013. "He lost his passport in Thailand, and he reported it to the authorities... Maybe the one who stole it came to a bad end, we don't know, they have to investigate," Renata Lucchi, the mother of 37-year-old Luigi Maraldi, told Reuters. An Austrian man falsely listed as a passenger had also had his passport stolen.
Combined king Eaton left gasping in heptathlon title defence
Cardinals sign Carpenter to rich six-year deal
Sopot (Poland) (AFP) - US combined events master Ashton Eaton was left gasping for air after cruelly failing to better his own world record when retaining his world indoor heptathlon title on Saturday. Eaton, whose Canadian wife Brianne Thiesen Eaton won silver in the women's pentathlon on Friday, was overnight leader after the first four events (60m - 6.66sec, long jump - 7.78m, shot put - 14.88m, high jump - 2.06m). Leading from the front, Eaton pushed himself all the way, roared on by a capacity crowd at the Ergo Arena in the Polish Baltic Sea resort of Sopot. But he left himself needing to run a final 200 metres in 28 seconds, something that fell 1.18sec beyond an athlete who is also the current world and Olympic decathlon champion and world record holder.
St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter has signed a six-year contract extension, the Major League Baseball team announced Saturday, in a deal worth $52 million. The contract runs through the 2019 season and gives the Cardinals an option for the 2020 campaign on the 28-year-old American, who helped the Cardinals win the 2011 World Series in his rookie year. Carpenter led Major League Baseball with 199 hits, 126 runs and 55 doubles last season and this year the All-Star makes a fielding position switch from playing at second base to guarding third. "We are pleased to have reached an agreement that insures Matt will remain a Cardinal on a long-term basis," said Cardinals chairman Bill DeWitt.
