Primed to go fast

first_imgLONDON, England:He may be the ‘fastest man on the planet’, but Jamaican sprinting superstar Usain Bolt has not shown that speed for nearly two years now. However, there’s quiet confidence that this is about to change.With the sport’s poster-boy getting ready to apply the gas to his season, after an unflattering start in his preparations for a triple title defence at next month’s IAAF World Championships in Beijing, China, indications are that tomorrow’s Sainsbury’s Anniversary Games – London Diamond League will see the return of a high-velocity Bolt.The sprinter has only competed in a single 100m race to date – a largely promotional affair along a stretch of beach in Brazil, where he posted a time of 10.12 seconds. A recent setback, which saw him jetting to Germany to consult with his doctor Hans-Wilhelm M¸ller-Wohlfahrt, coincided with his withdrawal from Diamond League stops in Paris and Lausanne at the top of the month, sending panic among his supporters.However, the 28-year-old world and Olympic 100m and 200m champion is said to be in cracking form heading into tomorrow’s 100m assignment, where the likes of Ryan Bailey, Nesta Carter, Mike Rodgers, Jimmy Vicaut, Kemar Bailey-Cole and James Dasaolu – all ready to provide a solid test for the big Jamaican are also entered in the two-round set-up.Bolt has spent the better part of the last month working out without issue under the gaze and direction of his coach, Glen Mills, and the rest of his Racers Track Club teammates at Brunel University, and despite a forecast of showers and 12?C conditions in London around race time, many close to the world 100m and 200m record holder are confident that the sprinter is primed to drop a fast time inside the London Olympic Stadium.welcome signIt would be a welcome sign for supporters of the Jamaican, whose last time under 9.80 seconds came in the final of the 2013 World Championships in Moscow, Russia. That is his only sub-9.80 seconds clocking since the final of the London Olympic Games a year earlier, where he posted a time of 9.63 seconds after similar doubt in the build-up to the games.It could even be argued that it’s increasingly important that Bolt show some kind of form tomorrow, considering his rivals – particularly Justin Gatlin, the only man to dip below 9.80 seconds this year – all seem to be in top condition.Nonetheless, the reports are positive and though it matches the tune heard ahead of the New York Diamond League, where Bolt posted a modest 20.29 in the 200m, those who should know seem extremely comfortable with the sprinter’s readiness heading to tomorrow’s test.It’s left to be seen, but the site of one of Bolt’s greatest weeks – a triple gold medal treat at the 2012 Olympic Games – may also serve as the stage for his first real statement this season.last_img read more

Trench Town derby

first_imgDefending champions Arnett Gardens will continue their march towards steadying their ship in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) when they play away to neighbours and rivals Boys’ Town in the Trench Town derby today.Arnett Gardens are currently in third spot, behind leaders Portmore United, and the most consistent team in the league over the past three years, Montego Bay United. Boys’ Town, on the other hand, are at the other end of the table. The outcome of these games, however, are never influenced by the teams’ standings in the table.”We pretty much expecting a tough game. We always bring out the best in each other. They are not doing so well right now being close to the bottom of the table, and we are in the top half of the league. Never mind that, though, it will be competitive,” coach Jerome Waite told The Sunday Gleaner.He added: “The fact that the game will not be played at Collie Smith Drive may take some of the intensity of a derby encounter out of the tie, but we still expect to get those three points.”Waite’s confidence is borne out by what he terms the wholesale improvement of his team.”Currently, I have seen a lot of improvement in the team overall. In the top half of the league, we have conceded the least number of goals, so that speaks volumes about us,” he added, touting his team’s defensive strength.On the attacking front, Kemal Malcolm and Vishinul Harris have been carrying the team with the goals and assists.”On any given day, any player can step up and make a difference for us – that is the kind of rounded unit we have – but Kemal Malcolm is on fire right now, and he can cause problems for any team, and we are looking to him to do that for us,” Waite said.For Boys’ Town’s Andrew Price, this game is a big one, especially after losing another derby to Tivoli Gardens last week.IMPORTANT GAME”This is a very important game for us. We can go there and perform, and it doesn’t take a lot to motivate my players for this derby,” said Price, who, himself, is a former Boys’ Town representative.Boys’ Town will be boosted by the return of the veteran wingback Xavian Virgo, who has been out injured.”We are going into this game pretty positive and ready. All our players are fit and ready. In fact, Xavian Virgo will be coming back after missing six games due to injury.”Rafeik Thomas, AndrÈ Dawson, Michael Campbell and Peter Keys, as well as Shamar Nicholson, should all see action, and if we maintain our defensive shape, then we should be in a good position,” Price said.Both teams, according to Price, are very familiar with each other, and the result will depend on application.”We know what they have to offer, and they know what we have to offer, so it will largely be about who wants it more on the day and acquit themselves better,” said Price.Leaders Portmore United will seek to maintain their lead and continue Waterhouse’s frustration when both teams meet at Juici Park, while fourth-place Humble Lion will be looking to create more space between themselves and their fifth-place opponents, Tivoli Gardens.Early-season front-runners Reno of Westmoreland will be looking to regain lost form when they host former champions Harbour View at Frome, while 10th-place UWI FC will be looking for their fourth win of the season and keep Rivoli rooted to the bottom of the table.last_img read more

Knockout kings STETHS outlast Clarendon College – Await Lennon or Cornwall in Ben Francis Cup final

first_img They enjoyed a fair deal of ball possession up until the 37th minute when Clarendon had their first serious chance at goal. Midfielder Reynaldo Richardson should have scored when he cut inside his marker, but fired over the bar. That was how the half ended, 1-0 in the defending champion’s favour. But if the first half was any indication, the second 45 minutes was literally heart-stopping action. Glendo Gopaul fired in a 52nd-minute penalty, as STETHS held a 2-0 lead before Creggton Charleton the Clarendon captain cut the lead in half in the 60th. With seconds left in added time, Shemar Hunter scored a wonder goal to tie the game at 2-2 sending the match into extra time. There was yet to be more twists before it all ended. Seven minutes into the extra time, Charlton would strike again, as Clarendon took control of the game with a 3-2 lead. Once again, with mere seconds remaining, STETHS would respond. Alex Thomas made no mistake from inside the area, beating Williams with a shot for the tie at 3-3, sent the spectators wild in celebration, as the Santa Cruz-based team forced the dreaded penalty shootout, where Wallace ended up starring. Wallace denied Shande James, who spotted for Clarendon’s second kick, before saving from Charlton to send the game into sudden-death penalty at 3-3, after his team-mates Tahjae Green and Thompson missed at their turn. HEART-STOPPING ACTION SUDDEN DEATH Western Bureau: St Elizabeth Technical (STETHS) are into a seventh straight ISSA-FLOW Ben Francis Cup final, thanks in no small measure to goalkeeper Kenroy Wallace and their captain Chris-Andrew Dixon, who could do no wrong in yesterday’s 4-3 semi-final sudden-death penalty kick victory over the highly-fancied Clarendon College at Manchester High. It was a game of changing fortunes and missed opportunities, but in the end, STETHS’ never-say-die tilt lifted them over their opponents for a place in the final, where they will face either Lennon or Cornwall College, who meet later this afternoon in the other semi-final. Wendell Downswell, the STETHS technical director, described the clash as a classic, one that will be remembered for a long time. Indeed he is right. The game that began rather cautiously, sparked to life in the ninth minute, when Demar James lifted a ball over Benjamin Williams in goal for Clarendon. In sudden death, Hunter missed, leaving Dixon to rifle his spot kick into the back of the net as STETHS celebrated advancing to a seventh successive Ben Francis Cup final. “This is why this team is so hard to beat,” Downswell noted. “We will fight to the very end. This is the hallmark of true champions and now that we are over this hurdle, we intend to be likewise determined in the final.” A defeated Paul Davis, the Clarendon College head coach, said he was bitterly disappointed, but praised the efforts of his team. “I am disappointed we never held on for the win, but it was a beautiful game, and we were just unfortunate in the penalty kicks. We still have the semi-final of the daCosta Cup to contend with,” said Davis.last_img read more

Dehaney confident ahead of Aussie league debut

first_imgTwo years ago, Kadie-Ann Dehaney was the youngest member of Jamaica’s senior netball team to the World Cup in Sydney, Australia, as an 18-year-old student of St Hugh’s High School.These days, she is back ‘Down Under’, but this time to compete in the new professional league as a member of the Melbourne Vixens team.Dehaney has been in Australia for the past 10 weeks as she prepares to make her professional debut.The 20-year-old, who impressed the Melbourne Vixens staff with her performances at the World Cup, is one of three new recruits that will line up for the team when the competition gets under way on February 18.The Jamaican says that she has settled well and is looking forward to her new experience.”I am here for two months and two weeks so far, and it has been hard so far, but who says success comes easy?” said Dehaney. “Training sessions are tough, but the coach keeps informing me that it is meant to be tough.”Dehaney says that she is beginning to know her new teammates and is happy with her performance in her lone practice game to date.The Vixens defeated the Adelaide Thunderbirds – the team of fellow Jamaican Malysha Kelly – by over 20 goals, with Dehaney switching between the goalkeeper and goal defence positions throughout the contest.GOOD GAME”It was really a good game for us, and we will be playing another practice match against the Sunshine Coast Lightening on January 21,” the young Jamaican noted.This will be a good matchup for her team and her teammates as one of the world’s best shooters, Catlin Bassett, and her Australian shooting partner, Stephanie Wood, are members of this team.Two other Jamaicans will be involved in the competition: Romelda Aiken of the Queensland Firebirds; and Kelly, who is also in her first season with the Thunderbirds.”I can’t wait as I am definitely looking forward to playing against both Romelda and Malysha, and although we are on different teams, we keep in touch with each other. We communicate on a regular basis,” said Dehaney.last_img read more

More Sports In Brief

first_imgRanieri cheering for Conte FLORENCE, Italy (AP): Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri is cheering for fellow Italian coach Antonio Conte at Chelsea to succeed him as English Premier League champions. In Florence yesterday to be inducted into the Italian football Hall of Fame, Ranieri says of Conte: “He arrived without fanfare but he’s showing that the Italian school of coaches is still valid. As a former Chelsea coach and as an Italian fan I hope that Conte can realise the goal.” Conte left Italy’s national team to take over Chelsea this season, and has guided the London club to a seven-point lead. Ranieri coached unsung Leicester to the Premier League title last season. Cowboys delay talk of Romo’s future FRISCO, Texas (AP): Those closest to Tony Romo on the Cowboys aren’t ready to discuss the future of the Dallas quarterback, probably because they know the likely final answer. After 156 games and franchise bests of 34,183 yards passing and 248 touchdowns, Romo’s career in Dallas appears to be over after he lost the job he held for 10 years to rookie sensation Dak Prescott following a preseason back injury. The question is, what’s next? “There’s several cards to be played,” owner and general manager Jerry Jones said on his radio show yesterday. “Don’t think for one minute if you see something written or something said about what and where Romo is going to be relative to our team that there’s any credibility to it. “There’s only one that can make that decision, and there’s been no decision made.” Zidane defends Navas after loss MADRID (AP): Real Madrid’s first loss after a 40-game unbeaten streak was enough to put coach Zinedine Zidane on the defensive. Two days after Madrid’s unbeaten record was halted by a 2-1 defeat at Sevilla in the Spanish league, Zidane was forced to defend some of his players against criticism from fans and local media. Most comments were aimed at goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who failed to stop Sevilla’s injury-time winner on Sunday. Navas got to Stevan Jovetic’s long-range shot but was unable to keep the ball from going in. “He’s having a really good season,” Zidane said yesterday. “You can always ask for more, but if up until now we had gone 40 games without losing, it’s for a reason, and he has been there all the way.” There have been calls for Zidane to give reserve goalkeeper Kiko Casilla a chance, but the coach said there was “no need to go over this again.” Zidane also dismissed talk about signing a new goalkeeper.last_img read more

Neymar completes world record PSG move

first_imgIndian national gunned down in Camarines Sur View comments READ: 222 million euro deal for Neymar ‘not expensive’, says Mourinho“It also looks like the inflation is accelerating,” said Wenger, whose 21 years at Arsenal have been characterized by prudent spending.“It’s beyond calculation and beyond rationality.”However, in the French capital there is huge excitement at PSG’s Qatari-backed project having landed a star name to finally make them feared among European football’s elite with even French president Emmanuel Macron enthused.“It adds attractiveness. Yes, it’s good news,” said Macron.“Neymar to PSG — the transfer of the century”, splashed Le Parisien’s front page on Thursday with the first five pages devoted to his impending arrival.The mood is understandably more sombre in Barcelona where attention has turned to who the Catalans can sign to replace Neymar in the month before the transfer window closes.Neymar’s Brazilian international teammate Philippe Coutinho of Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele have both been linked.There is also scepticism at the role played by PSG’s owners Oryx Qatar Sports Investments (QSI) at a time of political crisis for the energy-rich state which has been boycotted by its Gulf neighbours in recent months and will play host to the World Cup in 2022.‘State signing’ MOST READ In this Saturday, May 27, 2017 file photo, Barcelona’s Neymar celebrates at the end of the Copa del Rey final soccer match between Barcelona and Alaves at the Vicente Calderon stadium in Madrid, Spain. Neymar has told Barcelona that he plans to leave the club, with a blockbuster move to Paris Saint-Germain seemingly imminent. Barcelona responded shortly after his announcement Wednesday, Aug. 2, 2017 with a statement saying the Brazil striker’s 222 million euro ($262 million) release clause must be paid in full, a scenario which until recently seemed beyond the reach of any rival. AP FILEPARIS—Neymar’s world record move to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) was completed Thursday when the French club confirmed the Brazilian superstar had signed a five year-deal, earning him an estimated 30 million euros ($35.5 million) a year.The deal was signed just hours after the 25-year-old paid off his 222 million euro ($264 million) buyout clause to Barcelona.ADVERTISEMENT End of his agony?
