Charles Barkley is an American former basketball player, actor and sports’ analyst and commentator, born on 20 February 1963 in Leeds, Alabama. He’s best known for his successful career as a basketball player.

Early Life

Charles Wade Barkly was the only child resulting from the marriage of Charcey and Frank Barkley. Charles’ parents separated when he was still a baby, when his father left his family behind to move to California. Now a single mother, Charcey had to work cleaning houses to sustain her child.

Charles attended a local school in Leeds, though his time wasn’t easy as he was one of the first black kids to study there. In a report by ESPN, Charles’ mother recalled her son had to be escorted by his grandmother to school, as the building was always crowded by people who menacingly waited for the black kids.

When Charles was still in primary school, his mother Charcey found love again with a man named Clee Glenn, whom she married not long after meeting him. The couple welcomed two sons together named Darryl and John, although the family living in a small one-bedroomed apartment. Unfortunately, Charles’ step-father Clee died in a car accident when he was 11 years old, and when his half-brothers were still little kids.

Leeds High School wasn’t easy for Charles either, as his physical appearance – he weighed around 220 pounds – gained him cruel nicknames. However, amidst these problems Charles found refuge in his love for basketball.

Although at first he was only given a reserve position in his school’s team due to his short stature, he grew up during the summer previous to his third year, and was given a better playing position the next school year.

During the state’s high school championship he was a great addition for his team, though he didn’t attract the attention of recruits until the semi-finals, when Sonny Smith from the local Auburn University noticed him. Charles Barkley was subsequently granted a basketball scholarship in Auburn to study Business Management.

Career

Collegiate Basketball

During three seasons, Charles Barkley played for his university’s basketball team the Auburn Tigers, where he was nicknamed “The Round Mound of Rebound” due to his skills, big build but not-so-tall height. In the center position, Barkley excelled in defense, and won multiple awards such as Player of the Year by the Southeastern Conference, and Player of the Decade. However, he was rejected from the 1984 Olympics Basketball Team due to his weight.

His successful career with the Auburn Tigers allowed Barkley to leave during his third year of college in 1984, signing his first contract in the National Basketball Association (NBA) with the Philadelphia 76ers after the team’s first draft round.

Philadelphia 76ers

Although during his first season as a rookie playing for the Philadelphia 76ers he had average numbers, the following season he grew used to the team’s dynamic – and to his teammates such as Moses Malone and Julius Erving – improving his statistics in addition to becoming a rebounder. He was the second scorer for the team with 20.0 points on average, however, Philadelphia wasn’t able to win the National League that year.

Following the transfer of Moses Malone in the 1986’s season, Barkley took Malone’s position as the team’s leader and kept improving his numbers, scoring 34 points on average at the end of the season. The next year he scored 23 points and was included in the NBA All-Star Exhibition Game.

In 1988 Julius Erving left the team, giving Barkley the spot of the team’s franchise player.

During that season and having that privileged position, he averaged 28.3 points, and was part of the All-Star Game, in addition to being selected in the All-NBA First Team for the first time in his promising career. His success as a skilled NBA player gained him an appearance on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

In his interview with the magazine, Barkley opened up about team-related issues: ‘It bothered me that I was always the scapegoat, always the reason the Sixers couldn’t win,’ and continued addressing the critiques towards him and the team: ‘Well, I’m here to tell you that one man can’t do it alone. Not Magic Johnson, not Larry Bird, not Charles Barkley, nobody’.

In 1988 the Philadelphia 76ers didn’t make the play-offs, though this changed the following season when the team passed to the first play-offs round, and Barkley averaged 25.8 points, maintaining his spot in the All-Star Game.

In the 1990 season, the magazines Basketball Weekly and The Sporting News named Barkley the Best Player of the Year. His career with the 76ers continued to be immensely successful, and for several years he maintained a high scoring average, in addition to forming part of the All-Star Game’s team consecutively for years.

The 1992 season was the last for Barkley with Philadelphia, and with a scoring average of 23.1 points, he left with the fourth position on the team’s all-time points scoring list.

Phoenix Suns

Barkley was traded to the Phoenix Suns for the 92-93 season, a team with which he had a respectable career. In his first game he scored 37 points, and for the season he averaged 25.6 points. His contributions to the team didn’t end there though, as the Suns played their first play-offs final in more than a decade.

For his first season with the Phoenix, Barkley won once again a spot in the All-Star Game and was named the most valuable player of the team. His next season was a hard one for him though, as he presented with severe back pain which impeded his play. However, regardless of his health problems he was able to score 21.6 points on average, and led the team to the NBA’s semi-finals.

The next two seasons he continued struggling with his health, as his injuries affected him greatly. Despite his play and many honors with the Phoenix, in 1996 Barkley was traded to the Houston Rockets.

Houston Rockets

Not completely recovered from his injuries, Barkley struggled to show his skills with the Rockets. He missed 14 games of the 1996 season, though he was ultimately the second point scorer of the team.

In the next season he scored 17.9 points on average – only the second time in his career he averaged less than 20 points – and the Houston Rockets were defeated at the NBA finals.

In 1998 Barkley accumulated 23,000 points overall in the NBA, just the second player to achieve such a feat. However, in the following seasons with the Rockets he had the lowest point average of his career with 15.2, but recovered somewhat in 1999 with 23.5 points.

The 2000 season was the last for Barkley though, as he retired due to his rapidly worsening injuries. After a 16-year career he retired during a game in Houston, receiving an ovation from the public.

Olympics

Although Barkly didn’t make the cut for the 1984’s US Olympic Basketball Team, he was finally included in the US team for the 1992 and 1996 events, ultimately winning two gold medals and contributing to an Olympic record.

Published

on

Who is Vivi Winkler? Wiki Bio

Viviane Winkler Lourenco was born in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, on 2 May 1991, so her zodiac sign is Taurus and she holds Brazilian nationality. She is a model and a bodybuilder, who gained recognition after she competed in the bodybuilding Liga Carioca Championship, finishing as the runner-up.

Early life and education

Vivi was raised in Rio De Janeiro by her father who is working at a local factory, and her mother who is teaching at a local high school – it appears that Vivi has no siblings.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B_r3nhUj7tW/

She became interested in acting at a very early age, as she spent a lot of her free time watching movies and TV series, but it all changed after she started modelling when she was 21 years old. Vivi had problems at high school as she was overweight, and some of her peers bullied her and laughed at her dream of becoming an actress, all of which eventually led to Vivi starting to go the gym. Upon matriculation, she didn’t enroll at college, but rather decided to focus on losing weight and later on her modelling and bodybuilding career.

Career as a model and bodybuilder

Vivi became focused on becoming the best Brazilian bodybuilder sometime in 2006, when she hired a professional trainer and began going to the gym six to seven times each week. She only gained recognition after she competed in the World Bodybuilding and Physique Sports Federation (WBPF) Rio de Janeiro Liga Carioca Championship in 2016 when she won second place and was then invited by numerous magazines to appear on their cover pages. Her newfound fame also helped her become an Instagram star, and her account is currently followed by over 2.2 million people.

Vivi has been working as a model since 2012, and she has since served as the Fitness Ambassador of the clothing brand Maria Gueixa as well as for the pharmaceutical company Farma Forma. Her role model is Rizian Carla, a Brazilian bodybuilder who has won numerous titles and championships such as the NABBA Rio in 2015 and Angel BFS in 2016.

Workout routine and dieting plan

Vivi’s favorite day is when she gets to work on her quadriceps, her favorite muscle group, and she often films herself while exercising to later upload these videos onto her social media accounts, so helping those who are willing to exercise, and are looking for advice and tips (as well as motivation).

She likes to use dumbbells, while she also enjoys using an extensor chair when she is working on her lower body.

Vivi likes to be in nature, which is why she mostly exercises outdoors unless it’s a rainy day, and she is keen on running around Rio De Janeiro, which often serves as her cardio.

She is taking extra care regarding what she eats, as a proper diet plan is more important than exercising at the gym. Vivi doesn’t eat fast food nor sweets (low to no intake of sugar) and she prefers to eat Brazilian food which is rich in carbs, fats and protein.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBsD20ULXq0

She eats six to seven times a day – her favorite meal is made up of 150g of rice and 200g of chicken meat, as well as a salad. Vivi also likes to eat a Mexican dish called Ovos Mexidos, which is made up of scrambled eggs, tomato sauce and onions.

Vivi has been criticized for her use of supplements, but she believes these are important for her bodybuilding career, and that they don’t harm her health; these include Whey Protein, Vitamins D and A, and pre- and post-workout Vitamin C. Vivi is also using Goji Berry extract.

Love life and relationships

There is only a single Vivi relationship that the public knows about – in 2015 she met Igor Cariz, a man who worked out at the same gym as she did, when the two started going out together, and were in a relationship for nearly a year before going their separate ways for unknown reasons. It appears that Vivi has been single since their break-up.

There are rumors circulating the internet that Vivi might be a lesbian, as she doesn’t talk about any other men she might have dated, while some of her fans have also stated to have seen her with several mysterious women.

Vivi has also uploaded pictures of herself with a mysterious woman onto her Instagram account, and some of her fans believe that the two might be in a romantic relationship.

Hobbies and other interests

Vivi likes to travel and has been to several US states such as New York, Arizona and California, while she has also been to several European countries such as France, Germany and Russia, for both bodybuilding competitions and for holidays. She likes to watch movies in her spare time, with some of her favorite actors and actresses being Bruce Lee, Stephen Quadros and Kate Beckinsale, while her favorite movies include “Enter the Dragon”, “Never Back Down”, and “Strategic Command”.

She only likes to watch TV comedy series, with two of her favorites being “Family Guy” and “South Park”.

Vivi is a lover of animals and she has a pet dog, while she’s volunteered with a local animal shelter several times, the first time being when she was 15 years old. She has helped raise money for the shelter, and is encouraging people to adopt dogs rather than to buy them.

Appearance and net worth

Who is Naomi Osaka’s father? Leonard Francois’ Biography

Published

on

Leonard Francois is the father of Naomi Osaka, the professional tennis player, who best Serena Williams in the 2018 US Open Final. He’s dedicated many years of his life working as a tennis coach for his daughters, Mari and Naomi.

Early life and family

Leonard Max Francois was born in the US, though he is of Haitian descent. His parents spoke only Creole, as they didn’t even know English. Leonard spent his youth in New York, eventually as a student of New York University. It was then when he met the love of his life and the future mother of his daughters, Tamaki Osaka. During one of his vacations from his studying, Leonard went to one of the Japanese islands, among them Hokkaido, where he met Tamaki, and soon understood that he wanted to proceed with a relationship with her.

Tamaki’s Japanese family accused her of dating a black man and bringing disgrace to the whole family, however, Leonard was not afraid of proving he was a good match for his Japanese girlfriend, so after graduating from University, he moved to Osaka, Japan, to live there with Tamaki and to be near her family to show them he was good enough.

Career

Leonard decided to go in for tennis coaching in 1999, when he saw the Williams sisters performing at the French Open tournament. Both his daughters were toddlers those days, but Leonard’s decision was made. He was amazed by their victory in the doubles, and swore to do everything he could to make his daughters the team of the Williams’ kind. Leonard was also encouraged by the fact that the coach of the Williams’ sisters, their father Richard Williams, played no tennis at all in his entire life, although Leonard played tennis quite a lot.

Leonard’s younger daughter, Naomi Osaka, later admitted that the style of their upbringing at the courts was very similar to the one Serena and Venus Williams got from their father. Just as Serena once mentioned that nobody beaten her like Venus did, Naomi also shared that her older sister Mari was her toughest opponent. Leonard later found another coach for both of his daughters, for them to improve their playing level. Leonardo never forgot where he came from, so in 2000 he and his wife built an elementary school in Haiti, which Naomi later visited in 2019. He does a lot of charitable work, helping various funds to develop sports classes for children from low-income families.

Elder daughter, Mari Osaka

Leonard’s elder daughter, Mari Osaka, was born on 3 April 1996, in Osaka Japan. From an early age she was trained in tennis by her father.

She also likes drawing and often shares her pictures and sketches on her Instagram account.

Mari’s coach is now Maxime Kouyaté; he took her to the finals of The McLeod for Health Florence Open in 2018. Mari started participating in professional tennis tournaments in 2014, entering Bank of the West Classic, when she partnered Marina Shamayko in the doubles, however, they lost to Ajla Tomljanović and Varvara Lepchenko. Mari then could be seen participating at the 2019 Miami Open, when she played singles by receiving a wildcard into the main draw.

Mari likes travelling; her favorite destinations are Tokyo, Japan, and Paris, France. She likes dogs.

Younger daughter, Naomi Osaka

Naomi Osaka was born on 16 October 1997, in Chūō-ku, Osaka Japan. The questions that she is more than tired of answering is ‘Why is her surname the same as the town she was born in?’: ‘We’re recycling a joke from 2014! Everyone who was born in Osaka, their last name is Osaka’, she joked in her interview to Washington Post in 2018. When Naomi was three years old, her family moved to Long Island, then to Florida, when she was around nine years old. Naomi started playing tennis along with her elder sister, Mari. She worked hard and dreamt of playing against the Williams sisters.

At the age of 15 Naomi started working at the ISP Academy, being coached by Patrick Tauma, then in 2014 with the Harold Solomon Tennis Academy, and then moved to the ProWorld Tennis Academy, improving her skills and getting more opportunities to achieve success.

Naomi won her first WTA Tour match when she was only 16 years old, and became a sensation in the world of sports after beating Serena Williams at the US Open in 2018, while being ranked seventh in the world at that moment. The New Yorker called her ‘the next best player in the world’. In 2019 Naomi won the Australian Open, beating Petra Kvitová, the Czech professional tennis player, in three sets. The same tournament in 2020 was not as successful as Naomi expected it to be, as she lost to Coco Gauff, the American professional tennis player, in the third round.

Controversy around Naomi’s win at the US Open

‘We will never know whether young Osaka really won the 2018 US Open or had it handed to her by a man who was going to make Serena Williams feel his power’, wrote the columnist from the Washington Post, Sally Jenkins. Indeed, the situation which took place during the match between Naomi Osaka and her biggest idol and inspiration, Serena Williams, was outstanding. The Portuguese umpire Carlos Ramos, who served as the chair umpire at the match, gave Serena three code violations. She accused him of stealing the point from her, insisting she was not getting coaching during the match. She also accused him of sexism and racism, but in the end she had to pay the penalty fees for her violations.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BpNrlWdgcXo/

Naomi won the game, and the audience was arguing if it was her skill which helped her, or the situation about Serena, which made the latter lose both her temper and the game. At the end of the game Serena congratulated Naomi and looked friendly, smiling at Osaka. However, her true feeling about the game were in fact the opposite, yet not directed at Naomi.

Personal life, wife Tamaki Osaka

Leonard has never separated from his wife, Tamaki Osaka who is a school teacher, since the day they married in 1989. According to the laws of Japan, his daughters took their mother’s surname; the law is also known as Koseki, ie the Japanese Family Registration Law. It says the foreign spouse must join the koseki of his Japanese spouse, and all of their children are to be registered under the surname of the Japanese spouse.

The movie also won multiple awards from 2018 to 2019, including Toronto International Film Festival Awards, British Academy Film Awards and Primetime Emmy Awards, winning all seven categories the film was nominated for.

Sanni is often asked by her followers if she is afraid of Alex dying, as he often puts himself in danger almost on a daily basis.

She once wrote that at first she was not even thinking of his death, but after her friend Ueli died in an accident while climbing Everest, and his wife Nicole became a widow, Sanni understood that people she loved were often living their lives on the edge. Yet even then she wrote: ‘I would never want my death to take the joy of living from someone else. It’s natural and healthy to grieve, but maybe it’s also ok when the time is up. Not because we won’t miss the s*** out of people we love, but because death is coming for us all’.

Alex became popular in the world of climbing when he free soloed the Rostrum and the Astroman in Yosemite Valley in one day, and has accomplished  a lot of other significant climbs, including several free solos and speed solos.
