Hockey

Eng­land Hockey is to re­view its tal­ent iden­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­gramme and how young peo­ple ac­cess the sport af­ter re­ceiv­ing a sec­ond let­ter in three weeks which re­ported ex­pe­ri­ences of racism and raised se­ri­ous con­cerns over the sport’s lack of di­ver­sity. Nine clubs de­scribed an “en­demic race is­sue” in what is de­scribed as “an elit­ist sport” that is “dom­i­nated at the top level in par­tic­u­lar by those lucky enough to come through the pri­vate school sys­tem”. It fol­lows an open let­ter last month from a group of 15 black, Asian and mi­nor­ity eth­nic play­ers, who said that they felt “dis­en­fran­chised and disen­gaged”.

Mo­tor rac­ing

Bri­tain’s Jamie Chad­wick, who is vy­ing to be­come the first woman in 43 years to com­pete in For­mula One, hopes her podium fin­ish on her For­mula Three Re­gional de­but for the Ital­ian Prema team at the Misano cir­cuit can in­spire more im­pres­sive per­for­mances this sea­son. The 22-year-old, who is also a Wil­liams de­vel­op­ment driver and won the women’s W-Se­ries last sea­son, said: “For me to con­sol­i­date and get the first podium of the year was a re­ally nice feel­ing and one which has given me a lot of con­fi­dence go­ing into the next few races and the sea­son ahead.”
