Hurdlers hot at Champs

first_img Before the applause had died down Shannette Allison of Holmwood Technical stormed to 13.30 seconds in her heat, followed by Winsome Harris STETHS 13.84 and Aaliyah Wood Edwin Allen 13.92 seconds. Despite qualifying for Friday’s semi-final in a comfortable 13.65 seconds win, defending champion Daszay Freeman of Manchester High will have to show marked improvement to retain her title. Kimeone McLeod of St Jago High (13.73) Antonette Black Edwin Allen (13.92) were two of the other leading qualifiers for the semi-finals. Young St Jago High sprinting sensation, Brianna Lyston, obliterated the Class Four girls 200m record with a scintillating 24.00 seconds clocking, later. She improved on the 24.21 set by school-mate Joanne Reid in 2015. The 12-year-old Lyston who had a best of 24.50 coming into the meet, is now confident of gold and going below 24 seconds. “I just ran the curve fast and kind of went easy off the straight. I think I can go much faster, I am looking for 23.80 seconds. My coach told me to go out and make the semi-finals and I plan to run hard in every race,”” she told The Gleaner. Meanwhile, Edwin Allen High’s standout sprinter, Kevona Davis, opened the Class Three 200m heats with a good 23.77 run, ahead of Atena Rayson (25.27) of Herbert Morrison and Tahira Morris (25.45) of Montego Bay High. The other leading qualifiers to tomorrow’s semi-finals are Joanne Reid of St Jago (24.05), Gabrielle Matthews of Hydel (24.47) and Holmwood’s Sashieka Steele (24.57). This year’s 107th ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Champ-ionships began with a real bang yesterday with the girls posting three record runs. In one event, the Class Two 100 metres hurdles, the record went twice. The first record of the day came in the Class Two girls 100m hurdles. Running in heat one Vere Technical’s Britany Anderson eased to a smooth 13.37, one-hundredth of a second better than the old mark held by Peta Gaye Williams of Camperdown.

Govt has duty to provide info on spending – TIGI

first_imgEconomic mission tripsAfter it was first revealed that President David Granger used a chartered plane to fly to The Bahamas on a State visit, a senior Government official was reported in sections of the media to have promised details on the chartered flight would be provided.That was late last month. More than two weeks later, Government has yet to release to the public details of how much of taxpayers’ money was expended on the trip. And, according to Transparency Institute Guyana Incorporated (TIGI) Head, Dr Trevor Thomas, if questions are raised about the spending of taxpayers’ monies, the Government has a responsibility to respond to them.President David Granger upon arriving in The Bahamas“We shouldn’t have questions about this. And if there are questions raised, then the answers should be forthcoming,” Dr Thomas said during a recent interview. “I don’t think that is a private matter or a security matter or anything like that, so I wouldn’t agree with keeping things like that a secret.”Dr Thomas said if there was a reason that the President or the Government did not want to come clean on the costs, then that would have to be an exceptionally good reason. But he added that as it was a State visit, he did not see a reason for not providing the details.“If there are questions about the spending I don’t see why the answers shouldn’t be forthcoming. Once you are using taxpayers money, you should be accountable for it and you should be willing to answer the questions. So, I would find that a problem, if the answers are not forthcoming.”TIGI has not been the only entity, along with individuals, calling for full disclosure. The parliamentary Opposition has also questioned the expenditure. And explanations from Government officials that the chartered plane was the most feasible option appear to not even scratch the surface, as the Opposition wants specifics.Not a private matterAccording to Opposition parliamentarian and former Junior Finance Minister Juan Edghill, a President’s trip overseas on behalf of the State is certainly not a private matter. As such, details should be made available to taxpayers.The Government, he noted, in the interest of transparency and accountability to the people of Guyana should release all the details. According to Edghill, “when the President travels, (it) is not a private matter. He is representing the State of Guyana.”“He is being funded by the State and the citizens of the State must at all times be fully aware of what it is costing the State for the President to represent the State,” Edghill said in an interview with this publication. Edghill had also been adamant that the State should officially make known what tangible benefits Guyana gained from the trip. “The President must be able to show the country what benefits would have accrued to Guyana in the short to medium term as a result of this expenditure and spending,” Edghill said.The President had arrived in The Bahamas on March 2, as part of a three-day State visit which has been dubbed an ‘economic mission’. According to a report in a Bahamian newspaper, the President was expected to pay a courtesy call on the Governor General and then meet with the Guyanese Diaspora.But reports are the chartered plane and the trip all together cost Guyanese taxpayers some $18 million, as the President was accompanied by an entourage, which included Ministers and other personnel for whom accommodation was provided.There has been no word on whether any bilateral trade agreements, prospective or otherwise, were secured in Guyana’s interest.In a Government news report, it was related that the President visited and toured several industrial sites in Freeport, Bahamas, including the Grand Bahama Shipyard, where he said the visit to that country has been a learning lesson for Guyana for its future growth and development.last_img read more

Officials: Brush wasn’t cleared

first_imgThe 50-acre brush fire that charred three mansions in Beverly Hills was sparked by a downed power line that ignited a weed-choked lot owned by the DWP, officials said Friday as they called for an explanation. City policy requires brush to be cleared within 200 feet of homes and other structures. Last month, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced the city would begin its brush clearance campaign months ahead of schedule because of tinder-dry conditions resulting from a record-low precipitation. Los Angeles City Councilman Jack Weiss said the Department of Water and Power had been advised in February that it needed to clear the heavy brush from its Franklin Canyon property. Although the agency had until June 1 to get the work done, Weiss said it should have been done sooner. “This is the kind of thing that makes the public crazy, when two agencies aren’t really communicating,” Weiss said. “We have people on private property who have cleared away brush living next to public property and they want to know why it hasn’t been cleared away.” DWP General Manager Ron Deaton confirmed that the fire started on the utility’s land, but said it contracts with the Los Angeles Fire Department to clear the brush. DWP officials said they are in full compliance with code and didn’t clear the brush earlier because they were afraid it would grow back by the height of fire season. “The LADWP will work together with the Fire Department to determine all of the facts involved in this matter and provide whatever information is requested in connection with their investigation,” said Joe Ramallo, a spokesman for DWP. “If it is ultimately determined that the LADWP bears responsibility in this matter, we will own up to it.” Los Angeles is in the midst of the driest season on record, with only 2.47 inches of rain since July. “We are in an extreme situation,” said Bill Patzert, climatologist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge. “Now, the conditions demand immediate clearance.” On Friday, city officials compared the impact of the winds to that of a moderate earthquake. Electricity might not be restored until today in some parts of L.A. The blackouts have stretched from the Antelope Valley to Orange County. By late Friday afternoon, about 57,000 DWP customers were still blacked out, and officials said it might take two or three days to fully restore service. At its peak, the winds caused a total of 1,000 separate outages darkening homes and businesses for 109,000 customers. The DWP’s own phone lines were jammed Friday, with waits of up to 20 minutes. “Residents should know that crews will continue to work around the clock to restore power as quickly and safely as possible,” said David Nahai, president of the DWP Commission. Crews put on 16-hour shifts were called in from as far away as the Owens Valley and Las Vegas. rachel.uranga@dailynews.com (818) 802-4376160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Chelsea’s Courtois confesses love for Madrid

first_imgCourtois spent three seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid before being brought into the first-team picture for the Premier League giants in 2014, although his family stayed behind.Los Blancos are rumoured to be interested in the 25-year-old, who admits he has a strong desire to head back to Madrid one day.“My personal situation is related to the city of Madrid,” he told Belgian publication Sport/Foot Magazine. “My two children live there with their mum. I have my daughter every day on FaceTime. She often tells me that she misses me. My son is still too small to communicate like that.“Whenever I have the opportunity, I try to return to Spain. As a situation, it is not always easy. Yes, my heart is in Madrid. It is logical and understandable.“If they want me, they have to contact Chelsea. We’ll see. But they have not done that. What is certain is that one day I will return to Madrid. I love Spain, I love the city, I spent three wonderful years there [with Atletico Madrid]. It is there that I became an adult.Chelsea’s head coach Antonio Conte (L) celebrates with goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois on October 30, 2016“Atletico was a real group of friends. We went out together and my team-mates taught me a language I did not know at all when I arrived. When I left, I cried. My first days in London were not easy. England, when I arrived, was colder, more business. Now, I feel very good here.“I understand that the rumours are coming back today, as we are talking about a new goalkeeper there [at Real]. But I do not pay much attention to that, I stay focused on Chelsea.“If Real are really interested, my personal situation could influence things. The family aspect is priceless. But I repeat to you that, for the moment, I’m busy talking to Chelsea to extend. We agreed to meet again in February because the club had more urgent issues to deal with in January.“There is no rush, I am under contract until 2019. Normally, there is no problem, I will extend. I am happy here and I see a club that still wants to win a lot of titles. The signs are positive. Their desire to also extend Eden Hazard’s deal reassures me.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Chelsea’s Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois sets his wall to defend a free kick during the English Premier League football match between Southampton and Chelsea at St Mary’s Stadium in Southampton, southern England.LONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 7- Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois would welcome a move to Real Madrid for personal reasons, but intends to sign on at Stamford Bridge in the coming weeks.The Belgium international continues to be linked with a return to the Spanish capital, despite ongoing talks with the Blues to extend his contract, which expires in 2019.last_img read more

Man City’s Champions League dream still alive despite defeat, insists Pellegrini

first_imgManuel Pellegrini is optimistic Manchester City still have a chance to progress in the Champions League despite a 2-1 defeat in the first leg of their last-16 tie against Barcelona.Former Liverpool hitman Luis Suarez scored twice on his return to England as Barca completely outplayed City in a glittering first-half performance at the Etihad Stadium.But luckily for Pellegrini, his team improved after the break and Sergio Aguero pulled a goal back in the 69th minute to give City hope ahead of next month’s return trip to the Nou Camp.And City were given a further boost when Joe Hart saved a Lionel Messi penalty in injury time, and the Blues boss believes his side showed signs they can hurt the four-time winners in the second-leg.“With the way we play, I think we can do it,” the Chilean said.“This tie isn’t over until the game ends in Barcelona.“In the second half we demonstrated we are not a lesser team than Barcelona.“It is not the best result here at home. But we are going to play in Barcelona and try and do it the way we normally play.“It is important not to make the same mistakes. We cannot have a player sent off every game against Barcelona.“But we have a chance. We must try to do it there.“It is important for this team to continue in the Champions League as far as possible.”Pellegrini also admitted his team were way below par in the first half, and the manager conceded he owes a debt of gratitude to Hart for saving Messi’s penalty, which was awarded after the Barca ace was fouled by Pablo Zabaleta“It was a very important save,” Pellegrini added.“It gives us more chance to try and win in Barcelona… 3-1 is a very difficult score to try and erase.“It was a very unnecessary penalty. I think that we played two different games tonight.“We played very badly until the first half finished. We couldn’t put three passes together.“In the second half I think we played well, we scored one goal and had two or three more chances to draw.” 1 Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini last_img read more

Transfer BLOW for Manchester United and Tottenham

first_img Thiago Motta Manchester United and Tottenham face a battle to sign Thiago Motta as reports in Italy claim Inter Milan are also making moves to re-sign the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder.Motta has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League as both Louis van Gaal and Mauricio Pochettino look to strengthen their squads during the summer.Motta, 32, has a wealth of experience and would be a key signing for any top club in England.But Gazzetta dello Sport claim Roberto Mancini has also made the Italy international one of his top summer targets and would love to bring him in alongside Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure.Motta enjoyed three successful years at the San Siro, winning the Champions League and Serie A title, and would be interested in making a return to the Italian giants.Both United and Spurs will have to move quickly if they want to stand any chance of landing his signature at the end of the season. 1last_img read more

PATSY McGONAGLE’S ATHLETICS REPORT – SEASON ENDS ON A HIGH

first_imgBY PATSY MCGONAGLE: Athletics by its very nature is a busy pursuit.It begins September each year when  athletes  begin to consider cross country and as October looms track and field athletes return to the club to prepare for a season at that point months away.And so because of the various disciplines within the sport it enters a new year with cross countr ,indoor etc and soon attention turns to Easter and we are chasing with a track and field focus until late August. In the background a series of road events some serious some not so but the challenge is there for all.Thus this weekend National Masters in Tullamore , English AAA under 17 in Bedford ,competition in Liverpool and the obligatory road race in Brockagh.Meanwhile Sarah Collins no doubt excited and nervous completes her packing and is off to the New World to Providence and our best wishes go with her.That was the year that was and there was the memorable matter of an Olympics Games that nobody will ever forget. Tullamore attracted a strong representation from Valley and those that have for so long carried the flag for us excelled once again.Their enthusism and committment over the years has been exemplary . Top of the list former national senior long jump champion Shauna Carlin winning long jump ,100m,shot and just giving way in high jump on countback and another 6m long jumper from some years ago Sinead Mc Laughlin wins long jump ,javelin and silver in high. Well done to both.In the mens section Dominic Bonner 2nd in 5k – isn’t he always there or thereabouts in championship events?; Jim Hines 2nd in 5k and 1500m reminds me of the earliest days of Donegal athletics which the Ballindrait man was very much a part of.Bosco Reid from the Cross now living in Buncrana for many years has relished the challenge of the throws year on year and this time wins shot, silver in discus and hammer and bronze javelin.Pat Mc Crudden who lives just yards from the Valley Centre in Mulreany Terrace a double silver in 200/400. And the man of many parts in the day to day life of the club a bronze in 800m 2.06 – namely Ciaran Carlin 4th in 1500m.Well done all and Seamus Mc Granaghan and Neil Martin on duty as officials.In Liverpool Dempsey Mc Guigan broke the club and county senior record in the hammer with a 60.37m throw noteworthy to get over the 60m as a junior . Congrats to him.John Kelly has had a long busy yet rewarding season and topped it off with a bronze in the AAA under 17 shot in Bedford, his best effort 16.25 which came in the 3rd round. It is suffice to say everyone in the club is very proud of the achievements of the young St Johnston man. That was Saturday and on to Sunday morning an exciting hammer competition involving Fellan Mc Guigan. The result was a win for an English lad at 67m Fellan 2nd on 66.90m,and Adam King from Kerry 65.90 – simply a great competition.What a performance also from Kelly McGrory, Donegal Town Tirconnail AC silver in the 300m hurdles in 42.91, an impressive mark and Kate McGowan in the 80m hurdles with a personal best and a silver medal. Summed up it’s a great return from Bedford – 4 out of 4 for McGrory, Mc Guigan, Kelly and McGowan .That obligatory road race was the annual 4 mile in Brockagh promoted by Neil and Mary Martin with the help of the usual suspects – and once again an enjoyable event well organised in every respect.We now bring our attention in this sphere of the sport to a 10k in Ballyare next Friday evening open to runners and walkers promoted by Patrick Hegarty.Finally sympathy is extended to the Hegarty family, Mountain Top, Letterkenny on the death of Phyliss, mother and grandmother who in the early years of her family’s involvement in athletics was a regular attender at various events and took great pride in the exploits of Patrick and Pauline both of whom competed internationally indeed other members of the extended family as well . May she rest in peace.PATSY McGONAGLE’S ATHLETICS REPORT – SEASON ENDS ON A HIGH was last modified: August 19th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:PATSY McGONAGLE’S ATHLETICS REPORT – SEASON ENDS ON A HIGHlast_img read more
