T&T’s Walcott captures javelin gold at Pan Am

first_imgTORONTO, Canada, (CMC):Trinidad & Tobago’s Olympic champion, Keshorn Walcott, extended his recent good form when he won gold in the men’s javelin at the Pan American Games yesterday.Though his winning mark of 83.27 metres was way short of his best, the 22-year-old still managed to walk away with yet another major title, adding to the one he landed three years ago at the London 2012 Olympics.American Riley Dolezal, who measured 81.62m, finished with silver while Brazilian Julio Cesar de Oliveira took bronze with a throw of 80.94m.Walcott found his winning throw in the second round, leaving the remainder of the field – which included countryman Shakeil Waithe who finished last – battling to play catch-up.Two weeks ago, Walcott threw a personal-best 90.16 to smash the T&T national record and win at the Lausanne Diamond League meet.The mark was the second best in the world this year behind Kenyan Julius Yego’s 91.39m.In the men’s triple jump, veteran Bahamian Leevan Sands conjured up a season-best mark, to clinch silver behind winner Pablo Pedro Pichardo of Cuba.Pichardo measured a distance of 17.54 metres while Sands, an Olympic and World Championship bronze medallist, jumped 16.99.Cuban Ednia Caballero, meanwhile, picked up gold in the women’s discus with a throw of 65.39m with fellow national Yaime Perez taking silver with 64.99.last_img read more

Last year’s runner-up upset at US Open

first_imgNEW YORK (AP):A year after his run all the way to his first Grand Slam final, Kei Nishikori’s stay at the US Open lasted only a few hours.The fourth-seeded Nishikori had two match points in the fourth-set tiebreaker against 41st-ranked Benoit Paire, but the Frenchman saved both of them then took control in the fifth for a 6-4, 3-6, 4-6, 7-6 (6), 6-4 victory yesterday.It was the first win of his career against an opponent ranked in the top five.”When I saw the draw against Kei, I said, ‘Bad luck,'” Paire recalled.”It’s not like if I play against Roger Federer,” Paire said, explaining he knew he could get something going against Nishikori’s serve. “Against Kei, I know I can play.”Nishikori had withdrawn from the hard-court warm-up at Cincinnati, citing a hip injury, but he said yesterday he was fine physically. Still, he looked sluggish late in the match, which lasted three hours, 14 minutes on a steamy day.Last year at Flushing Meadows, Nishikori became the first man from Asia to reach a major final, where he lost to Marin Cilic.The 25-year-old followed that up with more success in 2015, and came into the US Open with his first top-four seed at a Grand Slam tournament. He made it to the quarter-finals at both the Australian and French Opens this year, but withdrew from the second round at Wimbledon because of a calf problem, the latest injury in a career plagued by them.Top-seeded Novak Djokovic needed just 71 minutes to beat 91st-ranked Joao Souza of Brazil 6-1, 6-1, 6-1.On the women’s side, four of the top-10 players are already out, with seventh-seeded Ana Ivanovic, eighth-seeded Karolina Pliskova and 10th-seeded Carla Suarez Navarro losing yesterday, a day after third-seeded Maria Sharapova withdrew. All were on Serena Williams’ half of the draw.Williams opened her pursuit of the first Grand Slam since Steffi Graf in 1988, last night in Arthur Ashe Stadium. Before she even stepped on the court, not a single top-10 player stands in the way between the American and the final.last_img read more

But visiting Leicester have now gone nine Premier League games without defeat, including five this season, and that is their best-ever run in the competition.Stoke’s problem is clear: they cannot score goals. They have just three, just one more than shot-shy Newcastle United, while Leicester have 11, the joint best in the division along with Manchester City and West Ham United.Leicester arrive buoyed by their remarkable 3-2 win over Aston Villa last Sunday when they came back from two goals down to score three times in the final 18 minutes. That win leaves the Foxes in second place, four points behind leaders Manchester City.Jamie Vardy scored Leicester’s equaliser in that game and has now been directly involved in a goal in five of his last six Premier League appearances for the Foxes.In their only previous Premier League visit to the Britannia Stadium, last season, Leicester won 1-0.Stoke are still without banned pair Charlie Adam and Ibrahim Affelay, who were both sent off in their last home game, against West Bromwich Albion.last_img read more

The team has not been at full strength because of tactical reasons,” he explained. Maxwell is expecting leadership on the pitch from captain Dale Reid as well as former national Under-17 striker Nicholas Nelson. Meanwhile, coach of Haile Selassie Michael ‘Jah Mikes’ Williams is oozing confidence ahead of the crucial contest. “Well, we are behind Hydel by three points, so the aim is definitely to win. We are playing at home and coming all out for maximum points,” Williams said. He pointed out that due to lack of funding, the team did not have a good pre-season. He added: “I think we can beat Hydel, but I expect a tactical game from Maxwell.

With the first round of games set to conclude today and the return games to start next week, teams are fighting for top positions in order to advance to the next stage. Hydel’s veteran coach, Geoffrey Maxwell, says that any top-of-the-table clash is of great significance. “We are on top in the group, but Haile Selassie must be considered a team that can hurt us,” Maxwell told The Gleaner yesterday. “It is early days in the competition, and we are going through how we intend to play,” Maxwell, who guided Hydel to the Manning Cup final in 2012, added.last_img read more

KC too good for C’down

first_img Maintaining record Many-time ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup winners Kingston College are still unbeaten in this year’s competition. Yesterday, they completed their preliminary-round fixtures with a 2-0 run over Camperdown High at the Stadium East. The win lifted KC to 22 points from eight games in Group G.

Dashawn Donaldson and Ericardo McNish were the scorers for KC yesterday, and coach Ludlow Bernard, who said he rested three key players, was happy with what he described as the same quality output from his team. “Our motivation today was to maintain our unbeaten record. That was the real motivation today, and although I would have switched up some of our players, it didn’t really make a difference. They knew what they had to do to win,” he assessed. With rumours swirling among the KC supporters that coach Christopher Bender’s job is on the line for poor results this season, Camperdown’s assistant coach, Stanford Patrick, told The Sunday Gleaner they had no fear for their jobs. “We are here, we are doing our best. Sometimes, you have spectators saying this and past students saying that, but no fear from us for our jobs. Whatever happens, you will see in 2016,” he said. Elsewhere, defending Manning and FLOW Super Cup champions Jamaica College cemented their place in the next round with an easy 3-0 rout of St Catherine High in Group A.

Stars line up for Draykin Table Tennis Open

first_imgNational champion Simon Tomlinson leads an entertaining line-up for this Saturday’s Andrey Dryakin Table Tennis Open to be played at the Alfred Sangster Auditorium on the campus of the University of Technology. Action starts at 9:00am with Tomlinson, former national champion Kane Watson and national rural singles champion Mark Phillips swinging to the table at 11:00 a.m. when the first round of the men’s singles will start. At his best, the 24-year-old Tomlinson is lightning fast with drilling topspin drives firing off both his backhand and forehand. Tomlinson and Watson will be right at home as they are students at UTECH and actually train inside the host venue. They will be on alert at this early season tournament with Phillips, a student at the University of the West Indies, in the field. All three have gained experience overseas as teammates on the national team. Also in the field is the durable left-hander, Rudolph Sinclair, whom Phillips defeated to win the national rural title, and the two veterans of the field Samuel Lamount and Alphanso Morris. Lamout depends on a steady forehand topspin from all areas of the court, while Morris is a quick driving close-to-the-table attacker. National women’s champion Shenique Clare is overseas and Yvonne Foster, the woman Clare defeated to win the nationals, isn’t entered. That leaves Kesley Davidson, the 2016 Caribbean Pre-Cadet under-11 silver medallist, as the female player to watch the most. Davidson will play in the under-13 and 15 categories. Her performance in the Cadet tournament earned her a trip to an International Table Tennis Federation training course in Lima, Peru last August. Paralympics dynamo Alphanso Cunningham will bring some star power to the Para section of the tournament. There will be star power off the table as well with 1990 National champion Keith Evans named as a member of the organising committee. This event is new to the local table tennis calendar and is being staged by the Kingston and St Andrew Table Tennis Association. It features play in the men’s and women’s open, the men’s B and C and the under 9, 11, 13, 15 and 18 age group categories. TRAINING COURSElast_img read more
