Caribbean Countries a Force to be Reckoned with in Track and Field

first_img Over the past decade Caribbean countries have shown great potential in Track and Field, especially in sprinting. The 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, Jamaica won 11 medals, six gold, and all were in Track and Field. In 2004 in Athens, Felix Sanchez, of the Dominican Republic, won gold in the 400m hurdles. In the Military World Games, the first results occurred on Thursday (21). The Dominican Republic won two medals, one silver and one bronze. In the 400m dash, Arismendi Peguero, 31, ran the race in 45.95 seconds, coming in third place. The Dominican soldiers celebrated that result and others and dedicated it to their country’s military. “For me it was very important since the military did all they could to send me here, since our resources are limited. I had to give my best to fulfill my duty,” Peguero said. The other medal came in the women’s 4×400m relay. Captains Raisa Sanchez, Margarita Manzueta, Marlenis Veras and Yolanda Valerio finished the race in 3 minutes 38.75 seconds and were just beaten out by the Brazilian team of Vanda Gomes, Christiane Santos, Geisa Coutinho and Jailma Lima. “It’s a medal that should be celebrated too. We achieved what we trained for. We’re really happy,” said Raisa Sanchez shortly after the race. Marlenis Veras states that these are their first Military World Games. “The result is very good,” said Veras, who earlier ran in the semifinals of the 400m individual event. Jamaica Icons of the short sprints in the last Olympics, Jamaica has not won any medals in the 5th Military World Games, but on Thursday (21), they ran in two finals – one with Michael Barton, in the 400m, and Marlo Robinson in the 100m dash. “The pressure on me is the great tradition that Jamaica has in the sport. No medals won, but I liked the result. I’m in the military, so my priority is the Army. I haven’t had much time to train,” said Barton. Brazil On Thursday, the hosts won two more golds in Track and Field. Sergeant Jefferson Sabino won the triple jump, and was also the anchor on the gold medal 4×400m relay team. The Brazilian also won silver with Sergeants Keila Costa in the Triple Jump and Ana Silva in the 100m sprint, and bronze in the 100m with Sergeant Nilson Andre.

Dillian Whyte plans to knock Fury out

first_imgRelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Dillian Whyte to face Povetkin in November rematch Anthony Joshua wants Tyson Fury, Wilder fight Dillian Whyte believes he will succeed where Deontay Wilder failed by keeping Tyson Fury on the canvas with a brutal knockout.The Brixton heavyweight faces Alexander Povetkin on August 22, live on Sky Sports Box Office, and will then target his mandatory shot at the WBC title, currently held by Fury, which is due to take place in February 2021. Fury preserved his unbeaten record by rising from a heavy 12th round knockdown in his drawn first fight with Wilder before stopping the American in the rematch, but Whyte plans to employ his own brand of aggression in a battle with his British rival.“He [Fury] knows Deontay Wilder doesn’t hit as hard as what everyone makes out, and Deontay Wilder can’t body punch,” Whyte told Sky Sports News.“Had Wilder been hitting him in the body, earlier in the fight, he wouldn’t have been able to get up from that punch in the later rounds, but his body was fresh, his legs were fresh.“There was no body punching going on, Wilder can only head hunt. You can shake the head punches off sometimes, but when your body is broken down, and you’ve been hit up and down – that’s how you’ve got to fight Fury, you have to fight up and down. You can’t just head hunt.“He’s a tough guy, he gets up, but I’m going to be targeting head and body, relentless all night long, so it will be a different story.” The feuding duo became embroiled in a heated dispute on social media over the weekend and Whyte has aimed another verbal blow by referring to past sparring sessions, in which he has suggested that Fury hit the canvas.“He’s got all these skills and all this other stuff, but I’m an animal and I’ll come to fight, simple as that,” said Whyte.“He has been in the ring with someone like me, because I sparred him many times.“I was very inexperienced at the time, and I still gave him work. A lot of work!”Fury is set to face Wilder in a third WBC title fight before the end of the year, with a date and venue to be confirmed. —Tags: Alexander PovetkinDeontay WilderDillian WhyteSky Sports Box OfficeTyson Furylast_img read more

Atzeni booked for Cork challenge

first_imgAggression appears to be the headline act at Cork as Qatar Racing’s retained rider Andrea Atzeni makes the trip to partner him in the Friday BBQ Evenings Handicap. Eisenhower will try to improve on his debut fourth in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden. He holds an Irish 2,000 Guineas entry so clearly shows a little something at home, but Dermot Weld’s Araner and O’Callaghan’s Knoxville Bullet, who was behind Aggression last time, can put up stiff opposition. Weld and O’Brien also provide two of the leading protagonists in the Ticket Sales Online At Maiden with Tadaany going for the Rosewell House handler and Father Frost representing the Ballydoyle team. John Oxx is also double-handed with both Foolish and Frozen Lake in the mix. O’Brien has a pair of runners in the concluding Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden, with Joseph riding Siege Of Orleans and his brother Donnacha on Cradle Mountain. They again have a Weld runner to contend with in the Aga Khan’s Sidra. Bold Thady Quill hit the bar at Listed level on his seasonal reappearance at this track and looks the class act in the Great Value Social Package Handicap. Ado McGuinness’s consistent Bubbly Bellini also lines up on the back of a win at the Curragh on the opening day of the season, while Nini Ok won at Dundalk earlier in the year. Greyscape will try to make it third-time lucky in the opening Irish Stallion Farms EBF Auction Maiden. Winner of his sole juvenile start for Michael O’Callaghan last December, the three-year-old Marju colt was subsequently purchased by Qatar Racing and now lines up under top weight in this six-furlong affair. Five Claw, a winner at Dundalk in February for Michael Halford, looks another leading contender, while Kevin Prendergast’s all-weather winner Sharaasa will likely have her fans. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Bush’s move remains irrelevant to USC

first_imgFormer USC star running back Reggie Bush beat the Heisman Trophy Trust to the punch Tuesday when he forfeited his 2005 Heisman Trophy. That same day, he released a statement peppered with public relations-friendly phrases.Fallen · Bush’s Heisman forfeiture makes him the first award winner to ever have the honor recinded. – Photo courtesy of USC Sports Information Bush talked about how winning the Heisman was “a dream come true” and gave credit for winning the award to his teammates, coaches, fans and family.What a good guy.But the thing that everyone had been waiting to hear was buried near the end of the statement: an admission of guilt.“I would like to begin the effort to turn a negative situation into a positive one by working with the Trustees to establish an educational program which will assist student-athletes and their families avoid the mistakes that I made,” Bush said in the statement.In the last five years, Bush has rarely spoken in public about the allegations concerning his dealings with two prospective sports agents during his time at USC. Even when the NCAA found Bush to have taken part in the wrongdoing, he only said that he was “disappointed by [the] decision” and “disagreed with the findings.”Finally, Bush got off his Heisman high horse and admitted to his mistakes. It confirmed what we all already knew. We just wanted to hear it from him.After watching the Trojans limp through their first two victories because of the fallout from Bush’s actions, many fans have expressed the desire to see Bush tangibly punished. Over the last week, everyone has had an opinion about what should happen to Bush’s Heisman Trophy.Bush chose to go with self-flagellation.If Bush had manned up to his transgressions earlier, there might have been some honor in his forfeiture. But at this point, when he was probably just a Trustees’ meeting away from losing the trophy anyway, I can’t commend Bush for his actions.Bush (or his P.R. people, at least) clearly made this move to try to help his injured image. Unfortunately for him, it’s too late.Essentially, Bush has been blacklisted and removed from USC football history as if he never existed, à la George Orwell’s government in 1984. USC fans also want to pretend that he never existed because they have already lost so much at his expense. Glancing around the Coliseum during Saturday’s home opener, you would have been hard-pressed to find a single No. 5 jersey among the crowd.So does Bush’s veiled admission of guilt help his image at all? Not a lick. For those that called Bush a cheater, this just confirms that sentiment.But let’s set the record straight: Bush did not cheat the same way Barry Bonds did. He was the best college football player in 2005 and thus deserved to win that trophy.The fact that he received improper benefits, however, reverses that. If USC has to pay in very real ways — scholarship reductions, postseason bans — then so should Bush.Whether Bush chose to give the Heisman Trophy back or was stripped of it is irrelevant. USC made up its mind about Bush’s legacy when it chose to send his replica Heisman back. So did his fans when they chose to leave his jersey at home.The question now turns to what happens to the Heisman Trophy itself.The Trust has not said whether there will be no winner for that year or if the runner-up, Vince Young, will receive the award. (Although Young has already stated he would accept the award if it were offered to him.)But does it really matter? Bush has already been embarrassed enough. He is the first winner of the Heisman to return the trophy and he is no longer welcome at the school he brought so much money and so many accolades to.Bush will be out of luck if he’s looking for sympathy. Compared to what his university is going through, he’s getting off easy.At the very least, USC can now move on with the reassurance that the man already known to be guilty has finally come to grips with it himself.“Middle Ground” usually runs Tuesdays.
