Gibson/McCook Relays alive and kicking

first_img The love and respect for the giant of a sporting icon, seeming to be ever present asserted itself even more in what the professor must have thought was the final query as he offered a sum up remark. “However, the basic attitudes, values and principles are the same ones enunciated by Bishop Gibson and the Honourable Neville Teddy McCook. We will not change a winning formula.” Foster’s Fairplay is not known to sideline those who are the major players – spectators. They should always receive value for funds spent. Many come to the park seeking innovations or features, new or established, which will heighten the appeal of and ensure lasting interest in the spectacle. With this in mind and alert to scarcity of disposable income to satisfy a sophisticated entertainment appetite, there would be no ignoring that. The man who seems to forget his auspicious title, calling himself simply ‘Rainford’, responded. “The GMR is a spectacle, its essence is high-quality athletics executed efficiently and on time. Jamaica is the focus and repository of high-quality athletics, and relay running in particular, and we feel no pressure to change anything, except being more efficient.” He referred to the GMR as “a training ground for track and field officials”. About overseas participation? “(It) would complement the meet and we would welcome it, but it is difficult to arrange for a variety of reasons. We continue to pursue that initiative and we will see how it goes when the opportunity presents itself.” On future plans? “We are in a strategic review process and will have to pay attention to several factors, including sustainable funding, penetration of the Caribbean and wider NACAC area in order to contribute to regional development of athletics. But short of extending to a second day, there is little room for change.” The chief organiser was less effusive on the 2016 features. “We will introduce a bit of spectacle for some of the championship events this year with the help of (sponsors) Digicel. Our emphasis is on quality and efficiency in a safe, fun-filled environment. The spectacle will come from the performances.” Rest well, Teddy. The Gibson McCook Relays will live on. n For feedback, email lauriefoster2012@gmail.com. Last week, the team leader of the organising committee of the Gibson-McCook Relays (GMR) was interviewed on KLAS Sports Radio. Any sentimentally inclined sporting enthusiast must have been duly moved. Foster’s Fairplay was privileged to have been part of the audience. The show, configured for the ‘riding home’ pleasure of working class Jamaica and hosted by a Fortis stalwart in sports journalist, Stratton Palmer, drove home a salient point. The rich legacy of the event, conceptualised and cofounded by bright minds, was alive and kicking. Forty years ago, inspired by visits to the world acclaimed Penn Relays Carnival, Jamaica’s now departed track and field icon, the energetic and ebullient administrator, Neville ‘Teddy’ McCook, could no longer ignore the bee in his bonnet. The concept, aligned to the energy and enthusiasm to create and replicate for his own, led to the founding of the Gibson Relays, as it was first named. Why not, as the Reverend Percival William Gibson, born in the same year as Prime Minister Norman Washington Manley – had played such a significant and seminal role in the shaping and steering of the McCook of the 1950s. The term ‘no-brainer’, not yet hatched, would now be quite appropriate. It is no easy task to have Kingston College old boy and former athlete medical professor Rainford Wilks speak about the planning team and his achievements. However, it would be a journalistic faux pas not to try. He was quizzed on attempts to emulate the McCook model and sustain the principles, prestige and precision of the event. He explained: “The organisation and execution are based on the same principles as under Mr McCook. The committee consists of complementary personalities and skills required to execute the meet, many carefully chosen by McCook himself and serving long internship – are very prepared for the job.” The assessment demonstrated a stark and unapologetic resolve to laud the work of the man who threw the first die. There was more to come. “We have enhanced the organisation with modern information and communication technology, as well as organisational and accounting principles and requirements.” LOVE AND RESPECTlast_img read more

Nadal outlasts Cilic to reach Shanghai final

first_imgNumber two Federer plays Juan Martin del Potro in the other semi-final later Saturday after the Argentine said he was fit despite hurting his wrist in a fall in the quarter-finals.Cilic had only ever got the better of 16-time Grand Slam winner Nadal once in five previous meetings, but he made him work hard for this latest win.Nadal said he was just glad to be in the final.“The way doesn’t matter,” he said with a smile. “We are at the highest level of our sport so nobody wins easy. “And if you want to compete in the most important events of the year and try to go for the victories, for sure you’re going to have tough matches, and today was one of them.”Nadal, pursuing a seventh title this season, put Cilic under immediate pressure in the Croat’s first two service games.But the 29-year-old Cilic, the 2014 US Open champion, eventually settled, only to squander three set points as Nadal hung on grimly.In the next game the 31-year-old Nadal capitalised, breaking Cilic on the way to claiming the first set.With the crowd firmly in his favour, the Spaniard broke Cilic again in the third game of the second set, only for Cilic to break back for 3-3 when Nadal put his simple volley into the net.An angry Nadal bashed his racquet twice on his knee.They exchanged a further break apiece to race into the tie break, before a grateful Nadal pulled away at the last.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Rafael Nadal of Spain hits a return during his men’s semi-finals singles match against Marin Cilic of Croatia at the Shanghai Masters on October 14, 2017 © AFP / NICOLAS ASFOURIShanghai, China, Oct 14 – Rafael Nadal survived a rollercoaster encounter with fourth seed Marin Cilic to power into Sunday’s final of the Shanghai Masters and a possible showdown with old rival Roger Federer.The Spanish world number one, who has never won the tournament but is on a terrific run of form, finally saw off the Croat after saving three set points in the opener on the way to a tense 7-5, 7-6 (7/3) victory.last_img read more

PFA Young Player of the Year: What happened next to past winners – revealed

first_img 10 2009 – Ashley Young (Aston Villa) – As the Villans continued their battle to break into the top four, Young was consistent following an award-winning campaign. The flying winger was a soaraway success in 2008/09 and almost got them into the Champions League the year after, only to see them finish sixth for the second season in a row. 10 10 2007 – Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United) – The Portuguese star was beginning to hit his straps at Old Trafford in 2006/07 but a year later he hit an astonishing 42 goals in all competitions and helped the Red Devils to victory in the Champions League over Chelsea in Moscow. This triumph led him win the Ballon d’Or and be named FIFA World Player of the Year, amongst other individual titles. 10 2008 – Cesc Fabregas (Arsenal) – Although the Gunners only managed a third place finish in 2007/08, Fabregas lit up the Premier League. A year later, though, his production diminished and Arsene Wenger’s side suffered as a result, finishing the campaign in fourth spot. After playing a part in 23 goals in the year he won the accolade, he could only play a part in 11 the next season. 10 2010 – James Milner (Aston Villa) – After watching Young pick up the plaudits in the previous season, Milner upped his game and won the award in 2009/10. A £26million move to Manchester City followed but his initial impact was limited. He scored only one goal across all competitions but did win the FA Cup as an unused substitute as the Blues beat Stoke City 1-0 thanks to Yaya Toure’s goal. 2012 – Kyle Walker (Tottenham) – As Spurs finished in fourth spot in 2011/12, Walker played more games than any of his team-mates, making the right-back role his own and delighting supporters by scoring the winner in a 2-1 home victory against rivals Arsenal. However, the following year mistakes began to creep into his game and he subsequently lost form, but still played 50 matches in all competitions. 10 10 2006 – Wayne Rooney (Manchester United) – Click the right arrow above to see how previous PFA Young Player of the Year winners have done the season after… – After getting 19 goals across all competitions in 2005/06, the England striker went on to notch 23 a year later. His improvement also saw the Red Devils go from runners-up to Premier League winners, which was Rooney’s first title win. 2014 – Eden Hazard (Chelsea) – In his second year with the Blues, Hazard hit 14 Premier League goals and made seven assists as he collected the gong and the next season propelled them to the title with another 14 goals and nine assists and was named the PFA’s Player of the Year thanks to a series of impressive displays. 2011 – Jack Wilshere (Arsenal) – The Gunners youngster, in his first full campaign, impressed with his mature displays over 49 matches in all competitions in 2010/11. Sadly, a stress fracture to his ankle, which needed surgery, kept him out for the entirety of the next season. 2013 – Gareth Bale (Tottenham) – The Welshman was named PFA Young Player of the Year and Player of the Year as he almost single-handedly fired Spurs to a fifth-placed finish in 2012/13, netting 21 goals in 33 Premier League appearances. Tottenham weren’t able to see him follow up this award-winning campaign as Real Madrid swooped and signed him for £85.1m. He went on to lift the Champions League and Copa del Rey trophies in his debut season for Los Blancos. 10 Dele Alli was named the PFA’s Young Player of the Year on Sunday after a stunning debut campaign with Tottenham.The Spurs youngster has put in some stellar showing and grabbed some great goals as they have pushed Leicester City in the Premier League title race.Alli is the fourth Tottenham star in five seasons to be awarded the accolade and the seventh Englishman in the last ten campaigns, but is claiming the trophy a charm or a curse?Click the right arrow above to see how the last ten winners did the season after being given the award… 10 10 2015 – Harry Kane (Tottenham) – At the start of the year, it looked like the Spurs youngster was third in the pecking order behind Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado, but by the end of the campaign he was an automatic starter, scoring 31 goals in total. Thought of by some as a possible one-season wonder, Kane has defied his critics by hitting 27 so far as Tottenham push for the Premier League title.last_img read more

‘Mo Salah is no one-season wonder – he’ll be top scorer again this year’

first_img⚽️⚽️⚽️ pic.twitter.com/NGXrUg7UQi— Mohamed Salah (@MoSalah) April 23, 2018Expectations are high in Merseyside after a brilliant season and busy summer, but there have been suggestions Salah’s sensational form could be a one-off and that he may struggle to repeat such success with the Reds this term.He perhaps answered those critics by scoring within a minute of his first game back for Liverpool in their pre-season victory over Manchester City.And Saunders fully expects him to brush aside those ‘one-season wonder’ claims and continue his prolific goalscorer record for the Reds.“I think this year he’s going to finish top scorer again,” the former Anfield star told talkSPORT host Jim White.“He’s no one-season wonder, and there are a few reasons why.“There are lot of players who have had one good season in the Premier League and then you don’t see them again.“But I’ve looked on Salah’s goalscoring record, and you can go back to when he was playing for Fiorentina and Roma – he’s made 303 appearances and score 121 goals so far.“He’s getting better and better every season. 2 Dean Saunders has compared Liverpool star Mo Salah to Cristiano Ronaldo – hailed as one of the greatest footballers of all time Liverpool star Mohamed Salah will prove he is no one-season wonder by winning the Premier League golden boot again this term, believes Dean Saunders.The former Reds striker has compared the Egyptian King with Cristiano Ronaldo, and is confident he will take the top flight by storm once more.Salah enjoyed a spellbinding first campaign with the Reds, scoring 44 goals in all competitions and providing 16 assists as Jurgen Klopp’s men reached the Champions League final.And while that clash against Real Madrid in Kiev ended in injury heartbreak, Salah did finish the campaign as the Premier League’s top scorer with 32 goals and completed a clean sweep of Player of the Year awards. 2center_img Salah made history by scoring 32 Premier League goals in a single season – breaking Alan Shearer’s previous record of 31 which stood for 22 years “A lot of his goals are poachers goals, so he’s not like Philippe Coutinho who almost every time he scored was in the top corner – they dry up, you can only do that for so long.“He got 44 goals last season, I would say 30 of them were poachers goals – a couple were spectacular and a he got a few headers.“It’s going to be hard for his to score 44 goals again, but I still think he’s get over 25 and will finish up near 30.”Listen back to Dean Saunders on talkSPORT in full above! “Plus, Liverpool have signed Kieta and Fabinho, who are going to win the ball back and give it to him earlier. He’s going to get more service this year than he did last season.“Salah has come back and scored straight away, good, first goal in the bag.“His movement is brilliant and his football brain is a step ahead of everybody else. So even though you know when he’s going to run, you can’t stop him.“His feet are electric. If you get too close to him in the box, he’s gone past you.“You just can’t stop him. He can score with both feet and he can score all types of goals.“He’s a bit like Ronaldo. All-round, he’s got the lot.last_img read more

GOVERNMENT HAS LET EU OFF THE HOOK, CLAIMS DONEGAL TD

first_imgSpeaking this afternoon in the Dáil on pre-EU Council meeting statements, Sinn Féin Spokesperson for Foreign Affairs Pádraig MacLochlainn said the Government failed to place Ireland on the agenda at the EU council meetings this week, and have allowed the unravelling of the Greek situation to bury any serious consideration of the same events that are ‘heading our way’.Deputy MacLochlainn warned: “As terms of agreement for the second Greek bailout, the IMF and EU are insisting Greece pass further new austerity measures.  When this is done, the Irish debt crisis will return to the top of the crisis agenda once again. There is no doubt about it.“The Government failed to really place Ireland on the agenda at the EU council meetings this week, and they allowed the unravelling of the Greek situation to bury any serious consideration of the same events that are heading our way. “A second, third, or fourth bailout will not solve the Greek debt crisis. Further austerity measures will only deepen it. The Greek people know this. It is why they are furiously protesting day after day, demanding that their government reject the EU bulldozer.”The Donegal TD said the Greek people want a viable alternative – and the only other possibility open to them is to exit from the euro, return to the Greek currency, and restoration of control over their national economy.He said it was no coincidence that the pressure mounting for more and more bailouts is coming from the core EU countries – ‘the very countries that facilitated and profited from the excess lending that contributed to these crises in the first place’.The Sinn Fein politician went on: 
”International observers agree that the faster Greece accepts the inevitability of default, the faster they will return to solvency. Anything else simply prolongs the agony. The Greek people know it.  The Irish people know it. Why, then, is this Government hell-bent on walking us into the same situation? “Our government is sleep-walking the Irish people into a delusional Shangri La concocted by the Troika in the interest of the ECB and the powerful States of Europe. Enough of the mad chat that Europe is favouring us with loans, at extortionate interest rates. Loans need to be paid back. A loan is not a gift.  Santa Claus has not come to town. The EU and ECB are committing us to crippling debt for decades to come.“Last week, Minister Noonan said the Irish Government was in a strong position to impose losses on bondholders of two failed lenders. The revival of the pre- election pledge to go after senior bondholders in Anglo Irish Bank and Irish Nationwide coincidentally happened on the Government’s 100th day in office. The ECB has not changed its resistance to any such measure.”Deputy MacLochlainn added: “They could not have made it clearer. Minister Noonan’s window dressing of events proved little more than a publicity stunt and political manoeuvring. 

”This begs the question, where do this Government’s priorities lie? Is this Government committed to the EU or to the people of this nation?“What message are we really delivering to our European partners at the EU Council this week? 
  
”While we watch the future of our nation being tragically played out in Greece, our Minister for Finance is negotiating more lending. That used to be called fiddling while Rome burned.  It has to be asked:  Are we completely blind? Or are we completely bullied? Or is it a tragic combination of both?”GOVERNMENT HAS LET EU OFF THE HOOK, CLAIMS DONEGAL TD was last modified: June 22nd, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:crisisdonegal tdeconomyeu bailoutgreek crisisIrelandPadraig MacLochlainn TDlast_img read more

DONEGAL SFC PREVIEW: ST EUNAN’S V MALIN

first_imgRory Kavanagh will be a key player for St Eunan’s in this year’s Donegal SFC.St Eunan’s will be gunning for revenge when they clash with Malin this weekend in their opening fixture in the Donegal SFC.Malin caused one of the biggest upsets ever in the Donegal SFC when they dumped the then reigning county champions St.Eunan’s out of the championship at the quarter-final stage.Malin defeated Eunan’s by eight points in an utterly sensational performance that sent shockwaves through the county. The surprise package almost reached the county final but were narrowly defeated by a dogged Killybegs side.They’ve had a decent league campaign so far, and are starting to establish themselves as a top-tier club.Eunan’s have blooded youth this season in the league, but still have plenty of experience to back them up.Rory Kavanagh, Conall Dunne, Eamon Doherty and Kevin Rafferty will all be key players for the Letterkenny men in the forthcoming championship. Eunan’s still have a quality squad, and while they might be undergoing a transitional period, their tradition would indicate you’d be a fool to write them off.Malin will obviously be confident having defeated them so comfortably last season, but I expect Eunan’s to have a bit more nous this time and they’ll be no complacency on their behalf.VERDICT – ST EUNAN’S DONEGAL SFC PREVIEW: ST EUNAN’S V MALIN was last modified: September 26th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal SFCMalinnewsSportSt Eunanslast_img read more

Chaffey defense offers top-notch security

first_img There, Alejandro usually likes what he sees. For the past five games, the Chaffey defense hasn’t allowed a point. Not one. That’s 20 scoreless quarters, 240-plus minutes or more than four hours, if you’re counting. ONTARIO – John Alejandro loves to surf the Internet, looking for any high school football statistics he can find. The Chaffey High School senior clicks on numbers for his team’s opponents, his team’s opponents’ opponents, then occasionally navigates back to the Chaffey page to check out the Tigers’ stats. Following a season-opening 21-13 loss to Corona Santiago, Chaffey’s schedule reads like this: 21-0, 35-0, 35-0, 34-6, 35-0. As for that 34-6 game? A San Bernardino player picked up an offensive fumble and ran it back for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. It had nothing to do with the defense, but the players were still mad. “I had to calm them down,” Brown said. “It’s not a big deal.” No, but for stats’ sake, the ‘6’ looked ugly in the string of zeroes. Yet there are other numbers that look just as nice. For example, if Alejandro clicked on “Sacks,” he would see teammate Tra Samuel has eight sacks, which is tied for the area lead. Or if Alejandro surfed over to the “Tackles” section, he might note the Tigers’ David Naeata has 82 tackles, including 72 solo tackles, which puts him among the state leaders. Then there is Dan Moreno, who missed three games with an injury, but has managed to record 44 tackles for a team-high 14.7 per game. Moreno, Alejandro and Naeata are seniors who have started since their sophomore seasons. They have made countless trips to The Hat, a restaurant where the Tigers gather every Friday night to talk about their latest game as part of a team tradition. It’s a bonding experience that has helped the players, who all have different personalities, grow together. “I used to hate this guy in middle school,” said Moreno, pointing to Alejandro. What changed? “Football,” Moreno said with a laugh. Said Brown: “They may not get along all the time, but they have a common task – stop the offense.” The next offense may be more of a challenge than Chaffey’s recent opponents. Mt. Baldy League rival Montclair (4-2) awaits Friday, the lastest in a string of teams which plan to test the Tigers’ defense. Naeata said he doesn’t care if Chaffey earns another shutout. He just wants to win. “We can only beat ourselves,” he said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Chaffey coach Chris Brown calls the unit his own version of the Miami Dolphins’ famed “No-Name Defense.” “It’s not the scheme, it’s not me, it’s this group of guys who play hard all the time,” Brown said. As a stat addict, Alejandro, a defensive back and running back, knows playing hard doesn’t always show up in the scorebook. That’s why he and his teammates have been proud of their recent shutout string. “We want to put that zero up there,” he said. last_img read more

So we created Strike.” mike melanson Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Product Reviews#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… As you can see, it’s a to-do list, like any other. But Smiley says there are a few simple things that set it apart – there’s no sign-in required, it’s easy to share and it’s easy to customize. Users can pull items off the list to delete them, drag them around with their mouse to re-order them and change how list items change when they’re marked as complete. If you want them to stay there as a reference, you can choose the strike option, which shows the item with a line through it. Or you can have the item move below the list or disappear all together.
