Motorists are warned to avoid flooded city route as record rainfall continues By Wannapa Phetdee D A I LY X P R E S S


angkok’s Srinakarin Road has been declared a hazardous route after being flooded by a record 220 millimetres of rain in two days. Traffic jams along the route yesterday were made worse by brokendown vehicles, and with the Meteorological Department forecasting more rain for today, police have advised motorists to avoid the area.

‘Boating’ on Srinakarin Sanya Chenimit, deputy director of Bangkok Metropolitan Administration’s Department of Drainage and Sewerage, said 200 city work-





ers were battling to drain the flood, which is highest on the stretch between Wat Sri Iam and Supalai Park. “It was like piloting a boat rather than driving a car,” said one commuter of her journey along Srinakarin on Tuesday night. “I was almost out of petrol and my mobile phone battery was low – it felt like a dangerous situation.” The 15 minutes it normally takes for the six-kilometre trip from her office in Bang Na stretched to two hours. She said she would avoid Srinikarin until the flood had subsided. Another commuter reported a four-hour bus journey on

10 and asked if I had decided to spend a night on the town. I offered to hand the phone to a fellow passenger if she wanted to confirm my story.”

Reassuring partners

Tuesday from Bangna-Trat Road to Pattanakarn Road, most of it spent on the 800metre stretch from the Sri Iam intersection to the Udomsuk intersection.

Commuters crawl “I was on the No 133. If it moved at all, it mostly crawled. At 8.30pm, my wife called to find out why I hadn’t arrived home. She called again at 9 and

“I heard several other male passengers doing the same – reassuring their partners that they were safe but caught in traffic.” Neighbouring Samut Prakan province has also seen heavy flooding, with many communities and roads knee-deep in water for hours. The water level is highest at the entrances to Soi Bearing and Soi La Salle.

Schwarzenegger to Shriver: Put down the phone

Rev Moon marries thousands in global mass wedding Brides in white wedding gowns and Japanese kimonos joined grooms in black suits and red ties yesterday for the Unification Church’s biggest mass wedding in a decade – a spectacle church officials say involved some 40,000 people around the world. The “blessing ceremony” was the church’s largest since 1999, and may well be the last on such a grand scale officiated by the 89-year-old Rev Sun Myung Moon, the controversial founder of the Unification Church. Moon blessed more than 10,000 couples gathered at Sun Moon University, the school he founded, in Asan, south of Seoul. About half are marrying for the first time, some in marriages arranged by Moon himself; the rest are renewing their wedding vows. Officials said Moon also blessed 10,000 couples from Sweden to Brazil taking part in simultaneous ceremonies around the world. – A P

Testimony depicts final days of Anna Nicole She was ill, confused, isolated and unable to walk unassisted in days before her death, investigator says A P , Los Angeles


nna Nicole Smith was ill, confused and isolated in a hotel room with a cornucopia of prescription drugs in the days before her death, an investigator testified in a criminal case stemming from the celebrity model’s overdose death.

‘She couldn’t sit up’ California Department of Justice investigator Danny Santiago testified that witnesses said Smith was unable to walk unassisted into the Florida hotel, and she was so

weak she could not sit up to drink liquids. The testimony was presented in a preliminary hearing involving charges that Smith’s former lawyer-boyfriend Howard K Stern and two California doctors conspired to illegally provide Smith with controlled substances before her drug-overdose death at age 39. Superior Court Judge Robert Perry, who will decide if there is enough evidence to send the case to trial, noted the defendants have not been accused of killing Smith and questioned the relevance

when prosecutor Renee Rose asked Santiago about Smith’s cause of death. Stern, Dr Sandeep Kapoor and Dr Khristina Eroshevich have pleaded not guilty. Their attorneys have said they are undecided or unlikely to call defence witnesses during the preliminary hearing.

Prescription drugs Santiago also identified prescription drugs found in the hotel room as the prosecutor showed pictures of bottles and hundreds of pills. Some of the prescriptions were in Stern’s name, although some used an alternate spelling, Stearn, and some had been prescribed by Eroshevich, Santiago said.

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is calling out his wife Maria Shriver for apparently violating a state law he signed – holding her cellphone while driving. The celebrity website posted two photographs showing Shriver holding a phone to her ear while she’s behind the wheel. On his Twitter feed, Schwarzenegger wrote to founder Harvey Levin: “Thanks for bringing her violations to my attention. There’s going to be swift action.” Schwarzenegger spokesman Aaron McLear says that by “swift action”, the governor means he’ll ask his wife not to hold the phone while driving. In a note accompanying the video, TMZ responded to Schwarzenegger’s tweet by saying, “... your scofflaw wife was at it again”. Drivers who are spotted by law enforcement officers holding a cellphone to their ear are subject to fines of at least $20 (Bt665) for the first ticket and $50 for subsequent tickets, plus additional fees. – AP

Circus tycoon recalls ‘amazing ride’ I would go back up there right now to do it again, says Canadian billionaire space tourist


A F P , Moscow


Guy Laliberte, 50


anadian billionaire space tourist Guy Laliberte spoke with wonder yesterday about his two-week voyage in space, calling his experience an amazing ride while admitting he had on occasion felt queasy. “Everything was an amazing ride and I would go back up there right now to do it again,” Laliberte, the 50-year-old founder of circus show Cirque du Soleil, told a press conference at Star City outside Moscow. Laliberte landed on Sunday after blasting off from Baikonur in the Soyuz spacecraft on September 30 and docking at the International Space Station.

Space tourist Guy Laliberte wears his familiar red clown nose after landing with the Soyuz spacecraft crew near the town of Arkalyk, Kazakhstan, on Sunday. Smiling broadly, Laliberte called his trip “mission accomplished”. He spoke flanked by US astronaut Michael Barratt and Russian cosmonaut Gennady Padalka who had both returned to Earth after

long stints on the station. He spoke eloquently about landing back on Earth, calling it the “ride of my lifetime”. “The moment that you eject is the moment you realise there is no way back. Going

Madonna shoes offered to Gypsy charity in Romania A P , Bucharest, Romania


adonna is putting her shoes where her mouth is. The Queen of Pop has offered one of her favourite pairs of Christian Dior shoes to a charity supporting Gypsy child education. Organisers said the skyscraper gold heels, which are autographed by Madonna, will be sold at the Ovidiu Rom annual ball later this month. Madonna drew international attention by saying during an August concert in Bucharest on her “Sticky and Sweet” tour that widespread discrimination against East Europe’s Gypsies, also known as Roma, should end. Thousands of fans responded by booing her.

‘Icon of innovation’ “Madonna’s very mild comment regarding equality shone a spotlight on a common European attitude toward Gypsies,” Leslie Hawke, president of Ovidiu Rom, told The Associated Press. “We’re thrilled to have her donation because she is such an icon of innovation and vigour and ‘can do’ spirit.” Hawke’s son, actor Ethan Hawke, will attend the ball and speak to guests. Guests at the ball will make dona-

down, you go through blue layers and you know you are actually back in the atmosphere. “You start to see the sparks for the first time and there’s all these colours, and it’s an amaz-

ing spectacle,” Laliberte said at the news conference carried live on state television. He described the ascent as “more an emotional and spiritual experience of going somewhere”. Laliberte admitted he felt unwell during the ascent. “It was scary. It was a new emotion, a new feeling I was going through,” he said. But he said he “adapted very well” to being in space.

Germany’s award-laden trance king Paul van Dyk helps Retox blow out the birthday candles tonight By Manta Klangboonkrong D A I LY X P R E S S


angkok’s most active party organiser and electronicmusic promoter Retox is celebrating its fifth anniversary tonight with a return engagement by German trance superstar DJ Paul van Dyk. The Grammy-nominated producer hit the big time in 1993 with his hit remix of Humate’s “Love Stimulation” and his own track “For an Angel”. Van Dyk continues to dominate the electronic-music charts, staying at the top of every list of important DJs and twice ranked best in the world in polls by DJ magazine. And we still managed to get him on the phone.


After your best-of album, what other projects are in the pipeline?

I’m already writing music for my next album, which is due out next year. You’ve received countless awards. Which topped them all?

It’s always an honour when people choose you as the best or most popular in your field, but one that definitely stands out is the medal of honour I received from my country for my charity work, which is also very important to me. What haven’t you accomplished yet?

It doesn’t feel like I’ve done everything yet. That’s the great

thing about electronic music: there are so many possibilities. I have so many ideas, more ideas than I can actually fit onto an album. If you weren’t a DJ, what would you be?

Maybe a chef in a restaurant, because I love food! What’s in store for the anniversary party tomorrow?

First of all, congratulations to Retox and happy anniversary! I’m happy I could be part of some of the earlier shows. Bangkok will have my 100 per cent, because I always enjoy playing there!

This is … Michael Jackson Multiplexes prepare for the premiere of ‘This Is It’ with dance and song activities for MJ fans D A I LY X P R E S S


ith so many activities being held before the Michael Jackson film “This Is It” hits the screen, Sony Pictures (Thailand) is determined to ensure that real fans are up to the minute as to the date of the real premiere. The movie, they say, will open on October 28 with regular show times and the company is definitely not holding any screening before that date. Sony’s spokesperson adds that tickets for the first three days of screenings in Thailand are almost sold out. Meanwhile, Jackson fans can warm up by taking part in the activities being organised by Major Cineplex and SF Cinema. On Saturday, SF World Cinema at CentralWorld invites fans to join the dance in

the “SF – The First Michael Dance Tribute in Thailand” at 4. Similar to public tributes staged worldwide, participants will gather in the plaza in front of the shopping centre and dance to the song “Beat It”. SFW Cinema will then screen the first 20 minutes of “This Is It” at 5pm for anyone who registered by calling (02) 611 7111 extensions 530 and 531. Major Cineplex kicks off its campaign on October 27 with the “This Is Thai Tribute”.

Not child’s play Dolls of all shapes and sizes wow fans at an annual festival hosted by Central Plaza Rama III D A I LY X P R E S S

Sirinthai Ceramic Company’s ‘Khon doll’.

Blythe enthusiasts

nyone with a love for dolls will no doubt have already visited Central Plaza Rama III at least once over the last 10 days to check out “Doll Mania 2009”, the annual festival that touches on all things to do with dolls and which, sadly, closes for another year today. But what an event it was! It got underway with a fabulous fantasy fashion show on the theme “Four Elements”. Titled the “Legend of God’s Warriors”, the show featured Athichart “Um” Chumnanont as the Wind God, Patchada “Roam” Nampan as the Earth God, Marvin Taweepol as the Water God and Phathit “Phai” Phisitkul as the Fire God. At the end of the performance, Um, Roam, Phai and Marvin reappeared alongside the SD 17 model ball-jointed dolls (BJD) from the Four Elements collection, with each actor dressed in the same outfit as their doll. Um looked a real treat as the SD 17 boy “Reisner” doll in an attire that

was dripping diamonds and emeralds worth Bt600,000. The festival showcases dolls from around the globe from such big name creators as Japan’s Volk and Korea’s Latidoll, as well as doll makers from Hong Kong and Thailand. Blythe and BJD enthusiasts also loaned their limited edition dolls to the event. “BJDs are the new trend because they are made from high quality materials. BJDs also come with gimmicks that make them more intriguing than other types of dolls. Some Blythe-doll collectors have now started to collect BJDs, though that doesn’t mean they’re abandoning their Blythes,” says Phannipa “Mod” Ruksawong, one of Thailand’s largest collectors and owner

of one of the first Reisner’s SD 17 BJD. “The term BJD refers to any doll that is articulated with ball and socket joints, which allow this type of doll to look more realistic and to move more freely than dolls with hinged joints. BJDs were originally created by Japan’s Volks, who manufactures various collections of BJDs,” she explains. “Korea became the second to produce BJDs when they introduced Latidolls. The popularity of BJDs has since grown and more countries have started to produce BJDs in various styles.” The main Reisner doll highlighted at “Doll Mania”, says Mod, has a blonde wig, which can be replaced, wears linen clothing and accessories made

of gold and brass and costs a cool Bt600,000. Add to that the diamond and emerald jewellery worth more Bt3 million and we’re not talking child’s play. “Actually, the combined value of the Four Elements collection is more than Bt5 million,” Mod grins.

When two heads are better than one


quick shots

A second medical opinion can help someone with a serious health problem seek the treatment that’s best for them DEUTSCHE PRESSE-AGENTUR


any patients want to get a second opinion after being told they have a life-altering condition or after their doctor recommends a treatment that is risky or that isn’t covered by insurance. Judith Storf, a counsellor at an independent patient advisory service in Bielefeld, Germany says patients often feel the possible therapies have not been thoroughly explained or they want to review the diagnosis. Sometimes patients say that their doctor has advised them to seek a second opinion. Germany’s nationwide association for physicians in Berlin also endorses the principle of getting a second opinion. “If you seek advice from two or even three consultants about investing money then when it comes to your own heath, you should do the same,” says the association’s president Joerg-Dietrich Hoppe. This applies especially when a diagnosis means a life-altering condition has been detected. Not only a tu-

health tips

mour diagnosis, but also diagnoses of degenerative illnesses that could impair one’s ability to make decisions. “In such cases, patients should proceed with the

greatest measure of certainty,” says Hoppe. Storf advises patients to avoid using Internet search engines that supposedly spit out the name of another doc-

tor. “The quality and reliability of these techniques tend toward zero,” she says. A better way is to go to a local independent adviser. “They have the advantage of having a good overview of what physicians offer. Even if they cannot recommend a doctor, they can identify several.” Patients also can consult their health insurer, many of which offer help from specialists who can be reached on a hotline or by appointment. In the event of getting two very different medical opinions, always consider what appears to be better for one’s own interests. Could one of the doctors perhaps have a financial interest in one particular treatment method? Are there accepted standard medical treatments for the condition? The patient must then make a decision. “This is the downside of being a responsible patient,” says Elss. “When you have gathered all the information, you have to make a decision.” To act only out of a sense of duty toward the doctor is not advisable.

capacity and improves breathing techniques and general fitness in young people, says the German lung foundation in Hanover, reporting on the Taiwanese study. The warm, moist air in heated indoor pools calms the respiratory passages of asthmatics, explains Professor Harald Morr, chairman of the foundation. This reduces the risk of an asthma attack caused by physical exertion, which often occurs, for example, when asthmatics jog in cold weather. It is important, however, to choose a swimming pool that is well ventilated and one where hygiene is held to an exact standard. Pools that use chlorine-free disinfectants such as UV light are more suitable than those that use

chlorine, says Morr. Pools that have a strong smell of chlorine in the air could trigger an asthma attack in sensitive children who have a tendency to have allergic reactions. Children between the ages of seven and 12 with asthma were examined in the study. Half of them had swimming lessons for six weeks. The others did not. Researchers found that children in the group that had swimming lessons snored less, breathed more through the nose and their rib cages were less deformed. The positive results of swimming were still recognisable up to one year after the end of the training, the lung association said.

The last word in


By Eugenia Last

Today’s Birthday: There is no more time to sit on a fence, allowing others to make decisions for you. The chance to make your life better is now and, if that means making a move or changing your circumstances, start doing so. Strength and courage are required but, once you take action, everything will improve.

Yesterday’s Puzzle Answer Complete the grid so that every row, column and 3x3 box contains every digit from 1 to 9 inclusively.

ARIES *** March 21-April 19 You can make an interesting career move that will encompass your creative skills in an unusual way. Check out the opportunities in an industry that offers future growth potential. TAURUS ***** April 20-May 20 Don’t think about the things you want to do, prepare to make them happen. Your actions now will determine whether you are a leader or a follower. Take care of a family matter. GEMINI ** May 21-June 20 Before you lash out at someone who isn’t living up to your expectations, consider if you are pulling your own weight. Expect opposition and a reluctance to give in to ultimatums or demands.


CANCER **** June 21-July 22 Take part in the activities going on around you or you may miss out on a very special encounter with someone you care for. Conversations will lead to something you least expect. LEO *** July 23-Aug. 22 Don’t sit back if someone offers you a good deal. Take advantage of any change that will benefit you professionally or financially. You’ll gain enthusiasm by incorporating new ideas into a project.


VIRGO *** Aug. 23-Sept. 22 You will lack concentration and will find it hard to finish what you start. Consider what’s really important and make whatever adjustments are required to work at top speed. LIBRA *** Sept. 23-Oct. 22 Your intuitive thoughts will lead you in the right direction if it has to do with a financial matter. Don’t let someone’s lack of vision or originality frustrate you; take over and finish instead. SCORPIO **** Oct. 23-Nov. 21 You are in the right place at the right time. A meeting with someone you respect will lead to a lasting relationship. If there are changes in social plans, don’t be afraid to go it alone. SAGITTARIUS ** Nov. 22-Dec. 21 Ulterior motives are present and must be considered when you opt to take on something that you aren’t positive you want to pursue. Protect yourself from anyone who is too aggressive.

CAPRICORN ***** Dec. 22-Jan. 19 The more informed you are, the better equipped you will be to take on a task that is heading your way. Once you establish your position, others will come to you for help and advice. AQUARIUS *** Jan. 20-Feb. 18 Your ability to accept responsibility will alter your life and help you plan for a better future. Getting rid of debt and asking for reimbursement will all contribute. Invest in yourself. PISCES *** Feb. 19-March 20 Socialise and network but leave time for love and romance. Whether you are single or in a relationship, you can make your life better with someone who complements you.

DEL FALTERS Listless US Open champ concedes match in Shanghai AFP, Shanghai


uckless Juan Martin Del Potro suffered his second Asian collapse yesterday with the newly crowned US Open champion failing to finish his opening match at the Shanghai Masters. The Argentine who was beaten by a qualifier a week ago in Tokyo in his first match since his career-defining grand slam title in New York, went down to Austrian Jurgen Melzer 7-5 2-1, unable to continue. In Tokyo, the 21-year-old had complained of feeling listless and unable to find his game. The symptoms were still there in Shanghai, his second and final date in Asia. Top seed Rafael Nadal needs to lift his game after losing badly in last week’s Beijing semi-finals, winning just four games against Marin Cilic. Sweden’s Roland Garros finalist Robin Soderling bucked the losing trend as he reached the

third round over Nicolas Almagro of Spain 6-4 7-5. Former Shanghai champion Lleyton Hewitt couldn’t get past unpredictable Gael Monfils as the French 11th seed knocked out the Australian 4-6 6-4 6-2. Hewitt, 28, who underwent hip surgery in the 2008 summer, refused to join this week’s controversy over whether the length of the 11-month ATP season contributed to player injuries. “The players shouldn’t be obliged to play all the tournaments every week, because they know what it takes to be the best in the world,” he said. Andy Roddick of the US, out of the event with a mysterious knee injury suffered during his first set against Swiss Stan Wawrinka, had been leading the debate over the lengthy season. Roddick suggested that the only option not on the table for exasperated players to make their point was strike action. Yetersday, two Germans made second-round exits as Robredo, the 14th seed, beat Florian Mayer 4-6 7-6 (7/1) 6-4 while Rainer Schuettler advanced as compatriot Tommy Haas fell

victim to a right shoulder injury after dropping the first set 6-4. Madrid’s Feliciano Lopez defeated Spanish 16th seed David Ferrer 4-6 7-5 6-1. Czech Tomas Berdych drew fire from Marat Safin after a 3-6 6-4 6-4 loss, with the retiring Russian says his opponent had faked an injury. “I was fooled by the great small shot he hit in the beginning of the second set where he pretended he was injured, and then all of a sudden he’ll be running around and still playing normal,” said Safin. “It got me out of concentration, all of a sudden we start to run again. The third set just slipped away in the beginning. I came back but I lost track of the match. At four-all I didn’t know how to play, how to find the game.” And the angry Safin had words for Berdych: “If you’re losing, just be a man and lose as a man. Don’t pretend that you are injured and then you start running around and start to hit winners. “I mean, what kind of sportsman are you? What kind of man are you?”

nited States forward Charlie Davies suffered broken bones and a lacerated bladder in a single-vehicle accident in which another person was killed on Tuesday. Davies, who plays for French club Sochaux, underwent several hours of surgery at Washington Hospital Centre Medstar, where he was listed in serious but stable condition. The injuries make it unlikely Davis will play in next year’s World Cup. The tibia and femur in Davies’ right leg were broken. He also sustained facial fractures and a fracture in his left elbow in the accident, which took place at about 3.15am local time in the suburbs of the US capital. Davies will be hospitalised for at least a week and additional operations will be required to stabilise his broken elbow and possibly the facial fractures. “Injuries of this nature usually require a recovery period of six to 12 months and extensive rehabilitation,” said Dr Dan Kalbac, a US team doctor who collaborated with the doctors at the hospital. “Due to Charlie’s fitness level, his prognosis for recovery and his ability to resume high-level competition is substantially improved.” The accident occurred in the southbound lanes of the George Washington Memorial Parkway in Virginia and claimed the life of Ashley J Roberta, 22, of Phoenix, Maryland, according to US Park Police Sgt David Schlosser. There were three people in the vehicle, and Davies and Roberta were passengers.

SOCCEROOS HOP TOP Cahill helps Aussies to victory over Oman in Asian Cup qualifier A F P , Melbourne

im Cahill once again proved to be Australia’s hero by scoring the winner against Oman, putting the Socceroos on top of their Asian Cup qualifying group yesterday. Oman looked set to frustrate the Socceroos’ team of European stars before the Everton midfielder rifled home the winner 16 minutes from time. It continued Cahill’s fantastic strike rate, with his 19th goal in 36 internationals. The hard-earned victory hoisted Australia to the top of Group B with a crucial three points after their scratchy start to qualifying for the 2011 tournament in Qatar. “That’s what I’m there for, to put them in the back of the net,” Cahill said. “You want to win games, so you have to score goals and people expect that from me and I’m very happy that it was a winner and that we got the three points.” The Aussies had put themselves in trouble when a below-strength side was upset 1-0 by Kuwait in Canberra in March after drawing 0-0 with Indonesia in Jakarta in January. “I think we should have scored more goals,” Australian coach Pim Verbeek said. “In the first 10-15 minutes we should have scored at least one and then we started playing out of our organisation, we were too attacking, but in the second half we did much better with our formation.”

Farewell Bilic? Coach Slaven Bilic is on his way out – barring a last-minute miracle that puts Croatia into the World Cup finals, newspapers said yesterday.

WE’VE GOT A GOOD MIX OF EXPERIENCED PLAYERS WHO CAN STEP UP. England’s Frank Lampard “Farewell”, headlined Sportske Novosti. “Unless there’s a miracle, Croatia will not go to the World Cup and will look for a new coach.” Croatia were to play their fi-

nal Group Six qualifier later yesterday against Kazakhstan, needing a win to retain an unlikely chance of bagging a playoff place ahead of Ukraine. England, having already secured qualification, lost on Saturday to Ukraine who moved above the Croats. In their last qualifier, the Ukrainians play whipping boys Andorra, who have no points, three goals for and 33 against from nine matches. Croatia, missing several stars, lie third in the group, a point behind Ukraine. “He [Bilic] has been too soft and the players have taken advantage of this to stab him in the back,” wrote the Vecernji List newspaper.

Former England manager Sven Goran Eriksson has turned down an offer to become the technical adviser of North Korea for the 2010 World Cup, the Press Association reported here yesterday. Eriksson, Notts County’s director of football, “was approached by the North Korean FA but Press Association Sport understands he has decided against taking up the offer,” the British news agency said. The report came after The Guardian and other leading dailies said the 61-yearold Swede, who twice led England in the tournament during his five years as national manager, was to meet North Korean soccer chiefs in Beijing later this week. Eriksson was to travel with the club’s executive chairman Peter Trembling. However, Notts County chairman Peter Trembling denied the club had been approached. “We wish to make it clear that Notts County have not received any approach nor had any discussions whatsoever with the North Korean FA in relation to Sven-Goran Eriksson becoming an interim manager of their national team,” Trembling said in a statement. “It is correct that I am making a business trip to Asia but this is solely and exclusively on official Notts County business. “I will be visiting Taiwan, China, Hong Kong and Thailand to discuss a range of Notts County initiatives linked to our 150th anniversary.” AFP

Jarunee and Usa and the other Thai pairing of Kamoltip Kulna and Yupa Phokongploy are aiming for top-10 places in the star-studded tournament being held on Phuket’s Karon Beach from November 3 to 8. Last year, the two teams tied for 13th spot – their best performance on the tour so far. “I am proud to have made it to the World Tour and I’m aiming to improve on last year’s

finish – though it will be difficult against the world’s top 10 teams in Phuket,” said Yupa. Her sentiments were echoed by partner Kamoltip: “I want to go far in this tournament; we need the Thai fans to come out and cheer us as motivation is very important in beach volleyball.” Usa agrees that the home support could be a big factor in the Thai girls’ success. “It’s good to be able to play a World Tour event in Thailand rather than going overseas, and this Jarunee Sannok, left, and Usa Tenpaksee will lead the Thai charge year I am aiming for a finish in at next month’s Phuket Thailand Open. the top 10.

Williams ends Toyota deal Formula One team Williams will have a new engine supplier next season after their contract with Toyota was ended. An extension of the Toyota deal was signed earlier this year but it was mutually agreed to end the deal. Renault and Cosworth are considered the most likely contenders to supply Williams in 2010. Williams had used Toyota engines since 2007, but never won a race with them. Meanwhile, Rubens Barrichello says he is negotiating with Williams for the 2010 Formula One season. Barrichello, currently with Brawn GP, says the English team is one of his options for next season. “I haven’t signed with anybody yet,” the 37year-old Barrichello said. “But it’s true that I’m talking with Williams and Brawn.” AP

AUSSI WIN KEELS OVER Historic victory capsized by claims of Dutch designer AP, Sydney, Australia


utch yacht designer Peter van Oossanen has cast doubt on the legitimacy of Australia’s famous 1983 America’s Cup win by saying he, and not the celebrated Ben Lexcen, designed the famous winged keel. Lexcen has for the past 26 years been recognised as the man who designed the groundbreaking winged keel that was credited with Australia II’s win over Liberty in the memorable series. But van Ooosanen said yesterday that Lexcen played only a minor part in developing the keel. Instead, van Oossanen said he and fellow Dutchman Joop Slooff, an aerodynamics expert, were the brains behind the design. Van Oossanen said Lexcen, who died in 1988, contributed

about 10 per cent of the development work. If true, that would make Australia II’s victory illegitimate, as America’s Cup rules at the time said the design work must be done by nationals of the entrant country. Australia became the first challenger in 132 years to beat the United States in an America’s Cup series when Australia II, helmed by John Bertrand, beat the American defender Liberty, sailed by Dennis Conner, 4-3 in a best-of- Then PM Bob Hawke salutes the victorious Alan Bond, boat designer seven final off Newport, Rhode Ben Lexcen with a scale model, and dutchman Peter van Oossanen.

He said Lexcen had privately acknowledged the Dutch design role. Bertrand rallied to Lexcen’s defence yesterday. He said while other members of the design team made a contribution, Lexcen was the chief designer. “Without Ben, there is no way the total design solution of the winged keel could have come together”, he said. Australian sailing writer Rob Mundle, who wrote Bond’s biography and covered the 1983 Cup, also disputed van Oossanen’s claim and said the maritime museum in Western Australia had documentary evidence the winged keel was Lexcen’s concept. Mundle said the New York Yacht Club exhausted all legal efforts at the time to dispute Australia II’s design. “Ben Lexcen was playing with wings and winglets and tips on 18 foot skiffs 25 years before that, so the whole thing was always in Ben’s mind.”
