‘The future looks very good’

first_imgDr Warren Blake, president of the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA), says Jamaica’s 86-medal haul at the recent Carifta Games comes as no surprise.Jamaica equalled their record medal haul from the previous year, winning a whopping 42 gold, 28 silver and 16 bronze.They also broke three field events and one track record in the process.Blake was present at the welcome-home press conference held inside the VIP Lounge at the Norman Manley International Airport on Tuesday.”The future really looks very good; the assign athletes have performed really well, and as usual, we have topped the medal table yet again and in terms of our overall medal performance, this is one of our better performances,” said the president, adding that the dominance at CARIFTA is now routine.”It shows that people respect our brand and value the training that we give to our athletes and that as you see year in, year out quite a number of athletes from other territories come to Jamaica to benefit from the training that is offered here, not just the physical training, but the mental training as well, and I think it’s something very good for us here in Jamaica and for the Caribbean,” he pointed out.When asked if it was a concern that no Jamaican athlete was selected for the Austin Sealy Award for the best young athlete of the championships, he said he was a little surprised.”This year, I was a little surprised at the choice of the athlete. This is not to take anything away from the winner because the winner really did very well in breaking Kashawn Walcott’s javelin record, but we had people who broke records as well and won more than one gold, so that is something that we will be bringing up and speaking to NACAC (North America Central America Caribbean Association) about,” Blake told The Gleaner.Grenada’s Anderson Peters was presented the Austin Sealy award at the 45th Carifta Games as the most outstanding athlete. The host country’s athlete produced a winning throw of 78.28m on the second round on Saturday.The last Jamaican to win the award was Yohan Blake in 2007.last_img read more

ALJA Cautions NEC against Electoral Irregularities

first_imgMr. Sandy, ALJA presidentThe Association of Liberian Journalists in the Americas (ALJA) has called on the National Elections Commission (NEC) to take steps that would ensure that some of the lapses that evolved out of the October 10 general and presidential elections are not repeated in the November 7 run-off.In a press release issued by secretary-general Charles Crawford and approved by president Moses D. Sandy, the ALJA said it is alarmed by the numerous complaints of alleged electoral irregularities and the number of invalid votes that engulfed the first round of the presidential and legislative elections.The association called on the NEC and political parties to ensure that election workers are properly trained for the smooth execution of the runoff presidential election.ALJA also urged the Commission to ensure that voters are fully educated about the location of polling centers and how to cast their ballots.The Liberian media advocacy group, based in the United States, urged political parties alleging electoral irregularities in the first round of the presidential and legislative elections to fully exhaust the election guidelines and the legal process to resolve their grievances without any acts of violence.The association also cautioned supporters and sympathizers of political parties to refrain from all forms of violence as the legal process takes its course.ALJA called on the NEC to move expeditiously in resolving the complaints filed by the various political parties and stressed the need for the Commission to be transparent and accountable in adjudicating the various parties’ complaints.Meanwhile, the ALJA has condemned the recent arson attack on the home of broadcast journalist Smith Toby, who is the station manager of the Monrovia based OK FM. According to reports, the incident was perpetrated by unknown men on Wednesday, October 18 on the Robertsfield Highway.Smith and his family survived the fire with barely any damage to property.ALJA sees the attack on Toby’s residence as counterproductive to press freedom and the peace and stability in Liberia during this critical period of electioneering.The association has called on law enforcement agencies to vigorously pursue the perpetrators of this heinous crime and bring them to justice.In a related development, ALJA said its attention has also been drawn to alleged reports of intimidation and harassment of journalists and media institutions in the performance of their reportorial duties by some unscrupulous individuals in the Liberian society. ALJA, however, did not specifically point to any act or incident during which a journalist was recently allegedly harassed.The association said the reports are troubling and have the propensity to rupture the peace and tranquility the country has enjoyed for the past 12 years.In the wake of these horrifying reports, ALJA has called on the Liberian government and heads of political parties to ensure that journalists and media institutions are protected especially in the performance of their professional duties.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Killbillies close out season with loss to Quesnel

first_imgThe season for the Fort St. John Killbillies came to an end on Friday, and unfortunately for the squad they weren’t able to close out the year with a win. The team lost 155-88 with a limited roster but coach Ashley Large wasn’t ready to use that as an excuse.“We didn’t play as strong as a team as we have in the previous couple of games,” he said. “We went in short benched but we knew we were short benched. Our jammers Hells Bells and Sparky did amazing for two jammers for a full game. They did phenomenal but it was tough for our whole team to make up the energy that would have been needed to keep on top of the other team.”The team ran into penalty issues which further compounded matters leaving the Killbillies even more shorthanded than they already were.- Advertisement -“We had a few penalty problems which sometimes happens, and unfortunately it wasn’t even our newer skaters it was some of our experienced girls that ran into penalty problems,” Large stated. “It happens. It comes and goes in games. We had two people ejected for penalties and one on the ropes. When you start with ten and you lose two you’re down to eight, and you have one that can’t play too much because one more penalty and she would have been out so that proposed some challenges.”Overall the Killbillies ended the year with a .500 record at 3-3.last_img read more

Fiorentina hoping to beat Liverpool and Arsenal to Argentina starlet with £10m bid

first_img1 Roma star Juan Iturbe Fiorentina have made a surprise offer for Roma star Juan Iturbe, who is also attracting interest from Liverpool and Arsenal.The 22-year-old Argentine, who has been labelled the ‘new Lionel Messi’ by many footballing insiders, is considered as a prodigious talent in Europe but did struggle to impress during his debut season for Roma.Iturbe, who also previously enjoyed spells at Verona, River Plate and Porto, has, according to the Il Corriere dello Sport, been the subject of a £10m offer from La Viola.It is thought Roma will reject the initial bid from their divisional rivals but Iturbe’s future is reportedly up in the air.Liverpool and the Gunners have both watched the one-time Paraguay international in action and have reportedly seen enough to want to make their interest concrete.Iturbe is contracted with the Rome-based club until 2019 but his representatives are keen to ignite a move elsewhere after a stalemate in talks with Rudi Garcia over his playing chances at the Stadio Olimpico.last_img read more

‘Johnson got what he deserved but Sunderland will miss his quality’ – Allardyce

first_img1 Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce has admitted his frustration with losing Adam Johnson and Emmanuel Eboue from his squad during the club’s battle to avoid relegation.The Black Cats boss insists Johnson, who has just started a six-year prison sentence for engaging in sexual activity with a child, got exactly what he deserved, but nevertheless conceded the club will miss his and Eboue’s quality.Allardyce said: “We have lost a hugely-talented player in Adam Johnson, irrespective of his indiscretions.“He’s got what he deserved, but I have lost a talented player that I would have liked to have kept, but it’s taken out of my hands by other factors.“Emmanuel Eboue – what part might he have played for us in the next eight games? Who knows now? I won’t be able to find out, a man as experienced as him at 32 years old.”Ivorian defender Eboue, who joined the club in a short-term deal only earlier this month, is having his Stadium of Light contract cancelled after being hit with a one-year playing ban by FIFA.The former Arsenal man is facing a year out of the game over a debt owed to former agent Sebastian Boisseau.Sunderland’s response was to serve notice of termination of the player’s contract, a decision over which he has two weeks to appeal.But Allardyce, who insists the club knew nothing of the matter until a few days ago, said there could yet be a way back for Eboue after an eventful few weeks which have also seen Johnson sacked and chief executive Margaret Byrne resign.He said: “It’s bizarre. It has been rather, in off-the-field activities, something I haven’t experienced before, but as a professional and as experienced as I am, you have to deal with it and deal with it the way it needs to be dealt with.“There’ll still be a door open if those problems are sorted in the next seven to 14 days. If that’s the case, there may be a way back, but it’s hugely frustrating having spent so much time – and him committing so much time.“There we go, but he probably relied on other people too much and didn’t keep a close enough eye on it himself to make sure it didn’t get to this situation, but unfortunately it has.” Frustrated Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce last_img read more

RTE PUNDIT SLAMS DONEGAL STAR MARK MCHUGH FOR “SLEDGING LIKE A MANIAC”

first_imgRTE pundit Kevin McStay has been the latest high profile name in the GAA to have his say on the ‘sledging’ row that occurred during Donegal’s Ulster SFC win over Tyrone on Sunday.Kevin McStay has slammed the behaviour of Mark McHugh during Donegal’s win over Tyrone.Tyrone star Sean Cavanagh said both teams crossed the line and said there was little respect shown by both teams towards each other and said some of it was nasty, pre-calculated and malicious.Michael Murphy shrugged off the invasive treatment he received from Justin McMahon as part and parcel of the game. Other GAA commentators have had their say on the behaviour of both sets of players with the general consensus being that the level of ‘sledging’ has been taken to a new worrying level.However, former Mayo star Kevin McStay said the game left a bitter taste and in his mouth and said he was appalled to see Mark McHugh ‘sledging like a maniac.’In his column with the Irish Independent McStay wrote, “Donegal’s Mark McHugh was a very high profile and an obvious example of this behaviour in the second half and to see a young footballer, reared to know better than this, resort to sledging in an almost manic fashion was so disappointing.“He should have been shown an immediate black card. McStay said the dislike between both sides led to both sides engaging in the darker arts of the GAA.McStay added, “It boils down to this basic fact, despite the protestations and nonsense we heard from both camps afterwards: neither management, players nor supporters have much, if any, respect for each other and will resort to whatever is needed to win the day.“What a pity it has come to this. RTE PUNDIT SLAMS DONEGAL STAR MARK MCHUGH FOR “SLEDGING LIKE A MANIAC” was last modified: May 21st, 2015 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:donegalGAAKevin McStaynewsSportTyroneUlster SFClast_img read more

DONEGAL DOMINATE DRESS REHEARSAL AS TYRONE FLUFF LINES – CATHAL MacSUIBHNE’S GAA DIARY

first_imgWas that the greatest and most shrewd example of shadow boxing ever or have Tyrone really suffered such a fall from grace?The Red Hands were awful yesterday and for a county which such an esteemed recent tradition it was somewhat alarming.by Cathal MacSuibhne  What, if any, effect it has on the Championship joust in seven weeks’ time remains to be seen but surely Tyrone won’t be as bad again.The last league meeting between the teams two years ago ended up in a four-point win for Tyrone, yet Donegal turned the tables and ended up with a six point victory in the Championship opener two months later.For Rory Gallagher it was probably the most complete performance the team have delivered under his tenure, leading and dominating from start to finish. In the opening minutes, the home side just seemed that bit sharper, more powerful in the tackle and in general more in tune with each other. The two week break was well utilised by the management team.The new Tyrone are a more basic re-incarnation of their former selves – plenty of skilful and willing ball carriers sprinkled throughout the team, tough and talented defenders and a couple of decent forwards. It’s all at a much lower level though than what we’re used to seeing from Mickey Harte’s team and his younger charges were taught some harsh lessons. Padraig McNulty has been impressive in the league this year, particularly against Dublin in Croke Park but on numerous occasions he was stripped of possession when he tried to break Donegal tackles. It is one thing galloping up the field in training but it’s an entirely different story when hungry, vulture-like defenders have their eye on you in an inter-county match.One of those ravenous raiders was Karl Lacey who gave a vintage display of hassling, harrying, dispossessing opponents without fouling and surging up the field to help his colleagues in attack. It is often overlooked last year that after an injury-ravaged 2013 season, Lacey was back to something approaching his best, most notably in his Championship shackling performances against Derry’s Mark Lynch and Kevin Dyas of Armagh.Yesterday he spent time marking Mattie Donnelly, who is fast becoming Tyrone’s go-to man as Sean Cavanagh’s influence begins to wane. Cavanagh didn’t make the starting line-up in what may have possibly been another example of his side holding fire until May. The Moy legend cut a frustrated figure when he was introduced in the second half, becoming involved in separate altercations with Michael Murphy and Christy Toye and getting very little ball in open play.Overall Tyrone’s setup was nowhere near as defensive as it had been in recent matches against Dublin and Mayo and they were quite open at times and vulnerable to the counter attack. Anyone watching football these days knows that the counter-attack is a team’s most potent weapon so for an astute mind like Harte to be caught out by it would suggest he was simply keeping his cards close to his chest.Gallagher, conversely, now has so many options at his disposal that he can show a certain amount of his hand yet still hold an ace or two up his sleeve. A key part of Donegal’s run to the All-Ireland Final last year was the injection of youth and fresh options in the form of Ryan McHugh, Odhran MacNiallais and Darach O’Connor; this year Hugh McFadden, Martin O’Reilly and Eamonn Doherty are providing the same impetus. Names missing from the starting line-up in Ballybofey included Paddy McGrath, Paul Durcan, Colm McFadden, Mark McHugh and Anthony Thompson – regardless of what the perception may be, Donegal currently have a very strong match day panel. McFadden did enter the fray in the second half to become his county’s record appearance holder.Last year’s young guns, McHugh and MacNiallais, appear to be relishing their more senior roles in the setup and have consistently delivered so far this year. The Gaoth Dobhair stylist gave a wonderful display of high fielding while his exemplary ball-carrying and control were of the usual high standard.Meanwhile McHugh added another goal to his tally, following on from his major in Tralee a fortnight ago and that last gasp strike in the Cavan U-21 encounter. The underage captain is a nightmare for opposing players to face, his raw speed and comfort off either foot make him very difficult to read and he makes beating players look so easy.The skill that the Kilcar youngster possesses is similar to that of Frank McGlynn and one score in particular yesterday showcased an important facet of Donegal’s play. With the Tyrone wall having formed across their own 45’, Donegal patiently transferred the ball from one wing to the other and back again. You often see teams doing this but with little or no clue as to where they’re going. In an instant, McGlynn moved up a gear, accelerated past one defender and broke the first line of backs. Suddenly Tyrone defenders are unsure of their role and who they should mark and within three passes McGlynn had got the ball back in front of the posts and had plenty of time to pop over a point. That transition from near walking pace to slick movement is one way to break down modern defences and another example of how Donegal are working hard preparing for the challenge of facing their own game plan. A lot of work has also been done on tackling technique and it goes back to the point on counter attacking being perhaps the most important ploy in football today. If a side can get their tackling right and dispossess a team who have committed bodies forward it gives them the best possible chance of scoring themselves. Mayo, under manager James Horan and coach Cian O’Neill, worked tirelessly on their tackling method and Rory seems to have improved his team’s ability in the tackle this year.In recent years, the ‘choke’ tackle has been in vogue in rugby; the fact that it slows the player in possession but doesn’t bring him to ground the key benefit to a defending team. Similarly Donegal’s tackling, indeed most teams’, attempts to slow the man with the initial impact before trying to rid him of the ball – a bit of a variation on the traditional near-hand tackle.For example, initially a player running with the ball is being chased from behind by a defender. The runner is tackled with an arm coming from behind his right shoulder; he is slowed down slightly but crucially he also instinctively transfers the ball away from the tackler, i.e. from the right side of his body to the left – the defender’s other arm then comes around aiming a direct hit on the ball. So it’s essentially the classic one-two from boxing circles – the player with the ball braces himself for the first hit, leaving himself ever so slightly susceptible to the second. Lacey demonstrated this wonderfully against both Derry and Monaghan in last year’s Ulster campaign but others such as MacNiallais and Martin McElhinney are now becoming more au fait with the technique.Captain Murphy is widely regarded, much to the chagrin of many commentators, as one of the team’s best tacklers though it could be said that his black card was as a result of this technique. In essence he tackled too well, dispossessing Cavanagh with his initial hit rather than the second. As his second arm followed to wrap around the player, both went to ground Joe McQuillan deemed it worthy of an early shower. The actual wording of this particular black card offence is a ‘deliberate pull down’ so Michael could probably count himself unlucky but with a one game ban to follow and a clean slate for the summer he won’t be too bothered about missing next week’s trip to Castlebar.St Michael’s man McElhinney also received a black card and he too could feel hard done by as he could claim that his tackle wasn’t a deliberate pull down but rather a jersey pull with the attacker then going to ground. They’re small details but the rule is framed in such a way that it makes every call ambiguous; even referee chief Pat McEnaney has admitted that his men haven’t got to grips with the implementation of the pull down rule as of yet.Black card apart, Murphy gave an outstanding display – his free taking in particular was breath-taking at times. Three of his first half efforts were from the ground and from sixty yards plus while in the second half he nailed a stunning strike from his hands – fifty yards out, against the wind, with the outside of his boot – it didn’t make any sense to see the ball sailing over the river end crossbar but over it went.Seven weeks out from another championship battle with Tyrone, it’s difficult to gauge just where the teams are at such was the non-contest nature of yesterday’s game. You’d find it hard to believe that Harte’s troops will be as poor again and there’ll surely be a lot more in the tank on May 17th.Then again when this Donegal side clicks they can be unstoppable, was that what happened? It was certainly reminiscent of our better performances over the last few years.The bumper partisan home crowd certainly enjoyed handing out a beating to a local rival; the decibel levels rising with every hit and turnover while each player being substituted was given a thunderous reception coming off the field. With the clocks going forward and that date in May etched in everyone’s mind, the appetite has certainly been whetted for high summer.DONEGAL DOMINATE DRESS REHEARSAL AS TYRONE FLUFF LINES – CATHAL MacSUIBHNE’S GAA DIARY was last modified: March 30th, 2015 by StephenShare 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:Cathal MacSuibhnediarydonegalGAAlast_img read more
