‘Anything is possible’ – Thompson says race execution key to getting national record

Posted on by

first_img POWERING AWAY Despite winning the women’s 100m in a wind-aided 10.71 seconds at Saturday night’s 13th Jamaica International Invitational at the National Stadium, IAAF World Championship 200m silver medallist Elaine Thompson rued not executing a ‘complete race’. The time is not official because the wind reading was +2.4, above the allowable +2.0 mps limit. Thompson, whose 100m PB is 10.84 seconds, believes that with good race execution and ideal conditions, she could better the national 100m mark (10.70 seconds), which is held by her training partner, Olympic and World Champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce. “Anything is possible, hopefully,” Thompson said of her chances of getting the national record in her post-race interview. Speaking about her race execution, Thompson said: “… Not the first part only, I am working on all of the 100m. My first 30 metres is not the best, so I am trying to work on that more.” Continuing, she said: “The comparison between last year and this year, I mean, last year, I was a collegiate athlete. I am not racing that much this year, but I’ll just keep on training and putting in the work and go out there and deliver.” The 23-year-old’s time was greeted by voracious cheers of approval from the National Stadium crowd. She ran from Lane Four, stamped her class over the final 20 metres and powered from the rest of a competitive field, which included American English Gardner (10.85), who finished second, and Trinidad & Tobago’s Michelle-Lee Ahye (10.98), who placed third. The meet record is 10.86, set by American Carmelita Jeter in 2011. Thompson reiterated that she has been “training really hard and happy to come out victorious”. “It’s a stepping stone for me to see where I’m at, so I have to go home and train harder and see the mistake that I made and see if I can correct it from there,” emphasised the MVP athlete. Meanwhile, Thompson is not sure what sprint event(s) she will do at trials for this summer’s Oympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but leaves the decision to veteran tactician Stephen Francis. “I am not sure. My coach will decide. My training has been going okay so far, so I’ll just continue doing my best out there at all times.”last_img read more

Patrick hoping to make ‘killer’ moves in transfer window

Posted on by

first_imgCoach of promoted Maverley-Hughenden Anthony Patrick is hoping to add some ‘killer’ players to the team for the new year. Patrick was hired to replace Lijyasu Simms three weeks ago. At that point, Maverley-Hughenden were flirting with relegation in tenth position on 13 points from 14 games. Three games later, they have improved to seventh position on 20 points from 17 games. Since Patrick, who saved Waterhouse from relegation last term, crossed the road to neighbouring Maverley, the team has won twice and drawn once. “We are looking to add some young players to the squad during the upcoming January transfer window,” Patrick told The Gleaner following his team’s 1-1 draw against Harbour View on Wednesday in the final round for this year. “We want to have some ‘killer’ players coming from the bench. The plan is to add young quality players in all areas. We have quality players, but it is important to have a strong bench,” he informed. Patrick said that on arrival at Maverley, he told the players that the plan was to end the second round with at least 17 more points. “I told the players that we want to aim for at least 17 points from eight games, and we have achieved seven in three games. So, with five more games remaining in the second round, we are on target,” Patrick, who is also coach of St Catherine High in the Manning Cup schoolboy competition, added. When quizzed as to the difference in the team, he responded: “It is about self-belief. The players believe in me and I believe in them. I will continue to instill confidence in the players. The work ethic of the team is stepping up. However, we don’t want to push ourselves too much at this point.” Maverley-Hughenden will next face second-place-Tivoli Gardens (32 points) on January 4. “We will have more time to prepare for the next game against Tivoli and be ready for them,” Patrick concluded.

Orchids, Hummingbirds clash in Elite League final

Posted on by

first_imgFormer champions Kingston Hummingbirds and St Ann Orchids will clash in Game One of the best-of-three finals in the Berger Elite League competition at the University of Technology Auditorium this evening at 7:30 p.m. The Hummingbirds, who last won the title in 2014, will enter today’s contest full of confidence, having defeated the St Catherine Racers in the semi-finals. The Marvette Anderson-coached Hummingbirds have been one of the top scoring teams in this season’s competition, while their defence has been very solid. Anderson says that she is expecting a competitive final and she is confident that her team will do well. “It feels wonderful to be in the final,” Anderson said. “No team has ever repeated (as champions) since this competition started, and so it would be nice if we were the first team to do so.” She added: “We are going into the game with the mindset that nothing is for granted, and we are going to have to work really hard to come out with the victory.” The Hummingbirds, who won the title in the first season of the competition, will be depending heavily on the likes of Shameera Sterling, Thristina Harwood, Shadian Hemmings, Stacian Facey, and Kerry-Ann Brown to lead their charge to victory. SLIGHT FAVOURITES On the other hand, the Janet Guy-coached Orchids team, which comprises the likes of former national captain Simone Forbes and Shanice Beckford, will start the final as slight favourites. The Orchids secured their place in the final with a 56-48 victory over the St James Sharpes. Guy said that she is expecting a very competitive series from her opponents. “We are expecting a good competition from them because they are champions in their own right,” Guy said. “I think whichever team plays less will lose, and whichever team plays more will win, and so we are expecting a good game,” the veteran coach said. Along with Forbes and Beckford, the Orchids will also be relying on Adean Thomas, Sabrina Spence, and Althea Byfield to lead them to victory. Meanwhile, the Sharpes and Racers will meet in the third-place play-off at 6:00 p.m.last_img read more
