Malcolm Nash (1945 - 30 July 2019)
Welsh Cricketer.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malcolm_Nash

Nash played for Glamorgan from 1966-1983.
In his bowling career he took 993 wickets @ an average of 25 and
he was the county's leading wicket taker when they went through
the season undefeated to win the 1969 County Championship.
Despite a very respectable career i'm afraid i remember his name
because of the video below.
In Swansea in 1968 Nash was hit for six sixes in an over by Garry Sobers.
Apparently this had never happened in First-class Cricket anywhere before.
The next player to achieve this was in Ravi Shastri in 1985, followed
by Herschelle Gibbs and Yuvraj Singh both in 2007 (Stuart Broad was Yuvraj's victim).

Bjorg Lambrecht ( 2 April 1997 - 5 August 2018)
I was shocked to hear last night that not for the first time in recent
years Belgian cycling was mourning the death of a young cyclist.
Bjorg Lambrecht died during surgery after earlier crashing into a
concrete drain while racing in the Tour of Poland yesterday.
He was 22.
Sadly the cycling mecca of Ghent knows all to well the pain of losing
local cyclists in tragedies as a memorial honours the lives of
Wouter Weylandt, Dimitri de Fauw and Frederiek Nolf.
Even more recently there have been a string of young Belgian cyclists die
during races in recent years - it's a very dangerous job at this stage.
The social media comments I've read concentrated on the painful
sense of loss and sympathy for Bjorg's family, friends and team mates.

This may seem crass to mention this at this time but his cycling
achievements were special -
Bjorg Lambrecht was a huge talent whose results were immense for a
young lad and he was becoming one of Belgium's best riders.
Born in Ghent Bjorg was superb throughout his youth.
By 2017 he was a superstar of the amateur scene winning the U23
Liege-Bastogne-Liege, he also was 2nd to Egan Bernal in the Tour de l'Avenir
(to all intents the amateur TdF) among a string wins and 2nd place finishes
in important U23 level races.
Turning pro with Lotto-Soudal aged 20 last year he won a stage of the
Tour des Fjords and finished second overall in that race.
He was just below the radar in two of the hardest stage races with
top 20 finishes in the Tour of the Basque Country and Tour de Suisse.
He quit the Vuelta on the 15th stage (being so young his team may not
have expected him to finish the three weeks).

After turning 22 on April 2nd this year he played an important roll in the
Ardennes classics with the top 6 results in Brabantse Pijl, Fleche Wallone (4th)
and Amstel Gold.
In June he signed a contract extension and then won the young riders jersey
at the Dauphine finishing 12th overall...

Bjorg was very prominent and was likely to have become one of the best.
After the euphoria of Evenepoel's San Sebastian victory on Saturday now
there is only despair.
Tuesday's stage of the Tour of Poland has been cancelled but the race won't
be and will resume on Wednesday.
