first_imgRanchi: Star sprinter Dutee Chand smashed her own national record, clocking 11.22 seconds in the women’s 100m semifinals on her way to the gold medal at the 59th National Open Athletics Championships in Ranchi on Friday. A fortnight after failing to reach 100m semis at the World Championships in Doha, the 23-year-old surpassed her previous timing of 11.26s which she had set at the Asian Championships in April this year.While she had equalled Rachita Mistry’s 11.26-second effort at the Asian Championship, Dutee’s time of 11.22 seconds in the semifinals on Friday finally gave her the sole ownership of the National record.Dutee later clocked 11.25 seconds in the final to claim the gold, leaving Archana Suseendran and Himashree Roy in the wake.At Doha, she had managed 11.48 to finish a disappointing seventh in her heats.”A couple of days ago, I had the wrong belief that my body was tired at the end of the season. I recovered well to be able to break the last national mark twice this evening,” Dutee said.Her state-mate Amiya Kumar Malik, who has been struggling to find his rhythm the whole season, won the bragging rights as the fastest man in the National Open.He won the men’s 100m in 10.46 seconds, breaking the beam a hundredth of a second ahead of Malaysia’s Jonathan AnakNyepa.Gurindervir Singh (Punjab) emerged as the winner of the bronze medal by a margin of 0.0044 seconds from his team-mate Harjit Singh.MP Jabir (AFI) rewrote the men’s 400m hurdles meet record, winning the final in 49.41 seconds.He improved on the mark of 49.67 seconds set by Ayyasamy Dharun (Tamil Nadu) last year.Dharun himself, running only his third hurdles race since recovering from an injury, will be pleased that he clocked 49.50 seconds for the second place, leaving T Santhosh Kumar (Services) in the third place.Earlier, in a close finish, Haryana’s Rahul Rohilla, 23, won the men’s 20m race walking ahead of the more seasoned K Ganapathi (AFI) and Sandeep Kumar (Services).The Group B winner of the event in the National Race Walking Championship in Chennai in February, he finished on top of a better field this time.There was some positive news for long jumper M Sreeshankar who leapt to 7.93m to lead the 12 qualifiers for the final.Also Read | Couldn’t train properly for a while after coming out of closet: Dutee Chand For all the Latest Sports News News, Other Sports News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

But as a public health official, anything that has crowds is something that would give a risk to spread.”last_img read more

first_imgST GEORGE’S, Grenada,  (CMC) – Discarded Test leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo struck a key blow late in the day when he removed half-century maker Kavem Hodge, to give Guyana Jaguars the edge on the rain-hit opening day of their fifth round match against Windward Islands Volcanoes.Sent in, Volcanoes were heading towards the close on 200 for five when Bishoo prised out Hodge for 53 as the visitors closed on 212 for six at the National Stadium here Thursday.Keron Cottoy, batting at number seven, finished the day on 37 not out while veteran Devon Smith, opening partner Roland Cato and Andre Fletcher all chipped in with 27.Bishoo claimed two for 43 while left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul (2-39) also picked up two wickets.Volcanoes were given a decent start when Smith put on 38 for the first wicket with Cato and a further 29 for the second wicket with Hodge.Enterprising seamer Nial Smith got the breakthrough when he removed Cato to a catch at the wicket after the right-hander had struck four fours in a 57-ball innings.Smith added 29 for the second wicket with Hodge before he too perished after facing 66 balls in nearly two hours at the crease and striking two fours.Hodge then took responsibility for the innings in a knock lasting 164 balls in a shade over 3-½ hours, while hitting six boundaries.Crucially, he put on 44 for the third wicket with Fletcher and a further 31 for the fourth wicket with Guyanese Bhaskar Yadram who made 16.When Yadram and 20-year-old wicketkeeper batsman Emmanuel Stewart perished 14 runs and 29 balls apart, Volcanoes were stumbling on 156 for five.However, Hodge added a vital 46 with Cottoy whose innings has so far included seven fours and lasted 64 balls, as the hosts rallied.last_img read more

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ When Ange Bradley attended a recruiting event in Virginia over the summer in search of a new assistant coach, she wanted to find the best fit for her staff.Bradley wasn’t prepared to settle. She spoke with candidate after candidate, but none piqued her interest.Then she met Natalie Barrett.‘I just was meeting with different people, looking for an assistant coach to fill a vacancy,’ Bradley said. ‘When I met Natalie, I met with so many people, and within 30 minutes I knew she was the person I wanted to work with.’The pair hit it off in their discussion and soon after, Barrett joined Bradley’s coaching staff. The youthful Barrett has made an immediate contribution to the program, coaching from the sidelines during games and competing on the field in practice. Barrett will be a key part of the Orange’s (3-2) preparation for a pair of home games this weekend against Rutgers (1-4) and No. 19 Princeton (2-2).AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThree years ago, Barrett was still competing at the collegiate level for Kent State. The forward then moved on to serve as an assistant coach at Division III Christopher Newport University. Now at SU, she still gets the urge to play, frequently hopping into drills during practice. ‘Any time I can get a chance to play, I love it,’ Barrett said. ‘I love playing against the girls and just really being a part of the practice, whether that be more from the coaching aspect or the player-coaching side.’Barrett’s ability to coach and challenge players in practice is something that sets her apart from most coaches. She can relate to players on the field as her playing days are still fresh in her mind.Senior midfielder Martina Loncarica likes what Barrett brings to the team and appreciates her unique perspective.‘She just competes with us,’ Loncarica said. ‘Sometimes she can see something from a player perspective, and she’ll help you with little things like pick-ups or how to perform certain skills.’Besides teaching players technique, Barrett creates a competitive atmosphere at practice when she competes in drills.And when she does play, Bradley has noticed the players are more motivated to fight harder. They want to beat their coach.‘It helps with the speed of a drill, the smarts of a drill and it also ups the ante a little bit,’ Bradley said. ‘It makes practices more competitive, because you’re going against your coach and you always want to beat your coach.’That competition between the players and Barrett can often be seen in small-game scenarios at practice. These scenarios include possession games and drills that feature uneven sides, with either the offense or defense having an extra player.On Tuesday, Barrett jumped into a series of 5-on-4 and 3-on-2 drills in which players would rotate on offense and defense. And as the players aimed to beat their coach, they were also improving.The drills change every week. They are specifically geared toward preparing the team for its upcoming games, Barrett said.‘We’ll do multiple variations,’ Barrett said. ‘We’ll do different types of attacking. We’ll do it on defending. There isn’t just one set pattern. We’ll do multiple variations to focus on the aspects that we need to get ready for the weekend.’Barrett’s presence in those drills only adds to the preparation. She brings out the best in the players each day. And she has enjoyed her first major coaching experience so far.Looking back on that day in Virginia this past summer, Barrett could not be happier with the way the situation has unfolded. She and Bradley share the same vision for the Orange and are driven to push SU to the top.‘The two of us, we’re on the same page as far as her expectations of the team and the goals that we want to achieve,’ Barrett said.sebail01@syr.educenter_img Published on September 14, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Stephen: sebail01@syr.edu | @Stephen_Bailey1last_img read more

first_img Associated Press Television News Herbert scored on runs of 4 and 5 yards in the first half, stiff-arming Wisconsin defenders on both runs. After his go-ahead TD, Herbert got back to what he normally does best: He made a key 12-yard throw to Mycah Pittman for a first down with 1:51 to play, and his 28-yard throw to Juwan Johnson with 1:03 left allowed the Ducks to run out the clock.“We knew coming in that he was athletic,” Sanborn said. “We didn’t have good angles and miscommunications. Something we have to be better at in a game like this. It’s not the first game he ran with the ball.”Three years after coach Mark Helfrich was fired when the Ducks went 4-8 in Herbert’s freshman season, Oregon held on to cap a Pac-12 championship campaign with its 12th win in 13 games and the fourth Rose Bowl victory in school history.“To realize where we were, and where we are now, it’s been a great journey,” Herbert said. “For us to stick together through those tough times is just a testament to all the guys on the team, and all the hard work we’ve put in.”Aron Cruickshank returned an early kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown for the Big Ten runner-up Badgers (10-4), but they lost in their fourth consecutive trip to Pasadena over the last 10 years, including two losses to Oregon.Jonathan Taylor rushed for 94 yards and Quintez Cephus caught seven passes for 59 yards and a score, but Wisconsin quarterback Jack Coan’s offense couldn’t capitalize on its whopping advantages in time of possession (38:03-21:57) and total yards (322-204).“There’s a slim chance you could win, but it definitely puts you in a tough position when you have self-inflected penalties, special teams problems, turnovers,” said Taylor, who is likely headed to the NFL. “When you’re playing an elite team like Oregon, a great team like that, they’ll capitalize on those mistakes.”BIG RETURNHerbert scored his first TD on the Ducks’ drive from the kickoff in 68-degree temperatures on another postcard-perfect New Year’s Day in Pasadena, but Cruickshank took the ensuing kick straight down the Oregon sideline for an electrifying score and a rarity in the Rose Bowl.The kickoff return was just the second for a touchdown in Wisconsin’s lengthy bowl history, but just the third in 106 Rose Bowls — and the first in 17 years.BOTCHED PUNTOregon got a break right after halftime when Wisconsin punter Anthony Lotti caught the snap, but dropped the ball on the ground instead of kicking it under pressure. Breeze alertly picked it up and sprinted for the go-ahead score.The Badgers responded with a drive capped by Mason Stokke’s 2-yard scoring run, and they went up 27-21 on a field goal with 12:09 to play.But Breeze forced another fumble by Wisconsin’s Danny Davis with a big hit, and Herbert took the next snap on his 30-yard TD run.THE TAKEAWAYWisconsin: The Badgers will kick themselves for years after every missed opportunity here. The offense couldn’t finish drives, while the defense appeared ready for everything except Herbert’s elusiveness. They can build on this resilient season, but their Rose Bowl drought continues.Oregon: Herbert could be sorely missed next season, both for his all-around skill set and his incredible poise under pressure. But the Ducks are once again ascendant, with this victory punctuating a two-year rise under Cristobal that puts them back on top of the West Coast and beyond.UP NEXTWisconsin: Next season starts with a visit from up-and-coming Indiana.Oregon: With a new starting quarterback, the Pac-12 title defense season starts Sept. 5 with a doozy: A visit from North Dakota State, the FCS powerhouse currently 15-0 on its way to the national title game.

I’ve been honored to be a part of this team.”Herbert scored his third rushing touchdown of the 106th Rose Bowl on that thrilling 30-yard run with 7:41 to play Wednesday night, and No. 7 Oregon held off No. 11 Wisconsin 28-27 to win its third straight trip to the Granddaddy of Them All.Herbert passed for just 138 yards without a touchdown, and Oregon (12-2) managed just 204 yards of offense — the fewest by any Rose Bowl team in 40 years. The Ducks still managed to win yet another frenetic edition of this venerated bowl game, surviving six lead changes and big special-teams mistakes by both schools.While the offense sputtered, the Ducks scored 21 points off the Badgers’ four turnovers, including Brady Breeze’s early 31-yard fumble return for a TD off a botched punt.And on the next snap after Breeze forced another fumble in the fourth quarter, Herbert rambled through the Wisconsin defense for that 30-yard score in what’s sure to be the signature moment of the four-year starter’s career.“I’m going to be honest with you, we’ve been telling him to run all year,” Oregon linebacker La’Mar Winston Jr. said. “He runs in practice and torches, so I told him, ‘Man, pull that thing and get loose.’ Stiff-arming dudes. Juking dudes. Is he a running back or a quarterback? We don’t know.”Winston’s praise aside, Herbert had only 10 rushing touchdowns in the first 41 starts of his career. He turned into a big-play ball-carrier on Arroyo Seco’s hallowed ground, and Oregon improbably relied on its quarterback’s long legs to grind out a landmark victory under second-year head coach Mario Cristobal, Herbert’s third coach in four years. Written By COMMENT LIVE TV Justin Herbert faked a handoff and went on the run of his life in the fourth quarter of the Rose Bowl.Oregon’s 6-foot-6 quarterback gracefully stiff-armed Wisconsin linebacker Jack Sanborn at the line of scrimmage.

first_imgPittsburgh Pirates’ Travis Snider, left, takes down Milwaukee Brewers’ Carlos Gomez, bottom, as Brewers’ Rickie Weeks, right, joins a skirmish between the teams during the third inning of a baseball game in Pittsburgh, Sunday, April 20, 2014. (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar)MILWAUKEE (AP) — Carlos Gomez has no plans to apologize for his behavior that set off another brawl.The Brewers center fielder was ejected along with Pittsburgh outfielder Travis Snider and Milwaukee bench coach Jerry Narron after a shouting match escalated into a brawl during the third inning of the Brewers’ win Sunday.Gomez flipped his bat to watch his two-out drive off Gerrit Cole. Gomez said he thought the ball would be caught, but it hit the wall and he made a headfirst slide for a triple. Cole, near third base backing up the play, stormed toward Gomez and they exchanged words.Cole said he told Gomez: “If you’re going to hit it out of the ballpark, then you can stop and look at it. But it you’re going to hit just a flyball to center field, then don’t stand and look at it.’”Last Sept. 25, Gomez stood in the batter’s box at Atlanta after hitting a home run off Paul Maholm. Gomez and Maholm yelled at each other, as did Gomez and first baseman Freddie Freeman. Catcher Brian McCann met him about 20 feet up the third base line, and plate umpire Paul Nauert tried to separate them. A brawl developed, and Gomez and Atlanta outfielder Reed Johnson were suspended one game each.Major League Baseball did not issue discipline Monday for this brawl.“To be honest, I don’t know anything,” Gomez said before the Brewers hosted San Diego at Miller Park. “I’ve just been watching TV, and the only thing I hear is my dad and my mother talking to me. They don’t want to see something like that. I said, ‘I don’t mean to do that, but things happen in the game.’”Gomez said Sunday he would appeal a suspension but appeared to backtrack Monday.“Whatever they say, if I feel like it is not fair, I’m going to appeal,” Gomez said. “If I feel like it is fair, I’m going to take it.”Gomez said this incident was different from last September’s.“Last year was a different case,” Gomez said. “Last year, I disrespected the Braves. I’m not that guy. It was the heat of the moment, and I don’t try to disrespect nobody.”Gomez said he wasn’t trying to show up Pittsburgh.“Ask my teammates,” he said. “I ask every time, ‘Where’s the ball at?’ They say, ‘Is this a joke?’ I say, ‘No, I’m serious. I don’t look where the ball is at.’ I don’t look at the pitchers. That’s the way the way I throw the bat when I hit it. And I run the bases hard, like anybody, with my head down. That’s it. People get sensitive over stuff that I do every time. It’s not disrespect. It’s not like I’m showing people up. I’m not going to get sensitive when they strike me out. I’m not going to say, ‘Hey, why you throw me 98 (mph)? Why are you throwing me a slider in the dirt? Why? Why are you throwing me a ball in the neck?’ It’s baseball.“It’s 2014. It’s a game. Just enjoy it. Whoever does the best job on the field is the one that’s going to win games. That’s the only reason we are here, to win games. It’s not to go fight. It’s not for complicated stuff. It’s to win and compete. That’s what I like to do, compete.”Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said he understood why Gomez reacted the way he did Sunday and had a brief chat with his leadoff hitter Monday.“Gomey needs to be himself and do what he does,” Roenicke said. “When things happen, yeah, he can be calmer than what he is. But there’s no way any player is not going to respond to a guy saying something to him and yelling at him right off the bat. There’s no way any player is just going to sit there and not say anything.”After Jonathan Lucroy caught all 14 innings Sunday, Roenicke started Martin Maldonado behind the plate Monday, admitting that he might not be able to get Lucroy a break if Maldonado is also suspended for his role in the brawl, when he punched Pirates outfielder Travis Snider.If Maldonado is suspended, utilityman Elian Herrera would serve as the Brewers’ backup catcher.last_img read more

first_imgThe slum community of Nyuanpanton, near New Kru Town heard shouts of ‘rogue, rogue’ Tuesday, September 22, and so residents awoke and captured the ‘rogue’ and inflicted mortal pains on him.The ‘rogue’ was later identified as Mr. Varney Morris Kiazulu, 50, of Popo Beach, whose wife, Evelyn David, relatives told the Daily Observer, was having an affair with a certain man in Nyuanpanton.Nyuanpanton residents who spoke to the Daily Observer said, “We heard someone calling rogue, rogue, and some people rushed out of their homes to catch the rogue.”At the victim’s residence Tuesday, his brother, Edward Z. Konuwa told the Daily Observer, “The victim came home with more than ten bloody marks on his body.” Mr. Konuwa is a consultant at House Speaker Alex Tyler’s office.”“I told him to let the woman go,” Konuwa said, “but it was difficult for my brother.” He said since his brother began having marital problems with his wife, “Varney could not even eat to his satisfaction.”He further stated that sometime last week, “My brother had a confrontation with his wife’s lover in Nyuanpanton.” What brought his death, he said, was the victim’s second attempt to get his wife from her lover’s house.”North Star security officer, Oliver F. Degbe also told the Daily Observer, “His whole body was bleeding when we saw him yesterday morning.”He said police officers who had visited the scene took away Ms. Evelyn David for questioning, which was confirmed by a police source at Zone 1 Depot, near Bong Mine Bridge, Tuesday.Officer Degbe said the late Kiazulu, “was a nice and easy going kind of man.” Our reporter observed a huge number of residents who had gathered at the victim’s residence to sympathize with the family.The victim’s 20-year-old son, Anthony Kiazulu, told the Daily Observer, “I feel bad about how my father has been killed.”He admitted being aware of his mother’s extra-marital affairs with a man whose name he could not reveal to the Daily Observer.“I want the police to get to the bottom of my father’s death,” he said, “and let the law punish everyone involved.”Though the shocking death did not produce tears, the presence of many sympathizers indicated the victim’s good relationship with his neighbors.Anthony and his 12-year-old sister, Antoinette, are the two children from the union of David his wife, the Observer was told.“We are waiting for the police to complete their job before we can take the body,” brother Konuwa told the Daily Observer.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
