‘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

Cricket Coach’s wife robbed at knifepoint

Posted on by

first_imgWife of current coach of the National Cricket Team Guyana Jaguars, Esuan Crandon was on Monday robbed at knife point on Sheriff Street, Georgetown.Lestra Crandon was in the company of her two daughters when two men pounced on her as she stopped to make a purchase at a fast food outlet.One of the men reportedly exited a car and grabbed onto the woman’s bag, while another attempted to relieve her of the keys to her car.Although she resisted, the men made good their escape with her handbag containing a cheque worth $300,000, $140,000 in cash, debit cards, passports, mobile phones and other important documents.In tears, the traumatised woman related that she stopped to purchase pizza for her daughter who celebrated her birthday on Monday. When she stopped, a man confronted her and held onto her bag and soon after the other joined in and attempted to relieve the car keys from her.At the time, she noted, she was fearful for her life and that of her two daughters.She explained that prior to the robbery, she did a bank city transaction and believes that she might have been followed by the men. “I don’t know where these guys came from… they came onto me suddenly but I tried to fight them off… one of them remain in a car and the two others were fighting with me,” she added. An alarm was raised and persons around ran to her rescue but by then the men had already taken her handbag.However a man was subsequently arrested but has since denied his involvement in the robbery, although the woman has positively identified him. He was not found with anything in his possession, leaving detectives to suspect he handed over the bag to his accomplices. He was taken into custody and is assisting with investigations as Police launched a manhunt for the two others.last_img read more

Valdez tries to impress

Posted on by

first_imgDespite committing an error during his six innings in the field, he also had five assists and two putouts, started one double play and turned the pivot on another. But his best moment came in the eighth inning, when he raced into shallow center field in pursuit of a high pop fly by Braves catcher Corky Miller. The ball landed just out of Valdez’s reach and died on the grass. But without even looking to see if Yunel Escobar had held up at first, Valdez picked up the ball and fired it into second base, where Tony Abreu tagged Escobar sliding in. The play robbed Miller of what should have been a clean, bloop single. “Wilson is probably one of the most heads-up shortstops I have ever seen play,” said Ken Howell, the pitching coach for the Dodgers’ Triple-A Las Vegas affiliate, where Valdez had the best season of his professional career last summer. Valdez went to camp last spring with Kansas City, signing as a minor-league free agent because he says Royals officials told him he would make the club. “But they lied to me,” he said. “So when I got traded to the Dodgers (on March 31), I was just excited for the opportunity to play every day, even if it was in the minor leagues.” The Braves roughed up Randy Wolf, Chad Billingsley, Travis Smith and Chin-Hui Tsao for 14 hits through the first seven innings. “We obviously gave up more hits than you want to give up,” pitching coach Rick Honeycutt said. “We struggled to put people away, and that will come when our guys have better command of their secondary pitches.” tony.jackson@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! KISSIMMEE, Fla. – On an otherwise forgettable afternoon for the Dodgers, Wilson Valdez made sure people would remember him. Not just the people wearing baseball uniforms, but also the ones wearing khakis, golf shirts and Panama hats behind home plate. For Valdez, who is a long shot to make the Dodgers’ opening-day roster, but is out of minor-league options, this spring training is as much about impressing scouts from other clubs as it is about impressing Ned Colletti and Grady Little. And if Valdez continues to perform the way he did in Thursday’s Grapefruit League opener – a 7-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves before 5,442 at the Ballpark – the Dodgers’ brass probably will face a clear choice: keep him or lose him. center_img After all, guys like this rarely make it through waivers. Valdez replaced Rafael Furcal at shortstop in the third inning and had a double in two plate appearances. last_img read more

Graham not crumbling over ‘Gilmore Girls’ demise

Posted on by

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Lauren Graham, who plays an independent mom in the drama-comedy “Gilmore Girls,” says she’s not upset the show is ending. “I think it’s the best decision for the show,” Graham told Newsweek for editions that hits newsstands today. “One of the things Alexis (Bledel, her co-star) and I wished could be different was the schedule, and it really can’t be.” The CW network announced last week the show will end May 15 after seven seasons on the air. Created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, the show became popular in large part because of its witty, comedy-infused banter. Set in fictional Stars Hollow, Conn., the series chronicles the saga of a single mother, Lorelai, and her daughter, Rory, who are more like best friends than parent and child. Graham has previously said getting the rapid dialogue right takes a lot of time, and it has taken its toll over the years. The show also suffered creatively and in the ratings this year after Sherman-Palladino and her husband left last season after a contract dispute. Graham, whose movie credits include “Because I Said So” and “Evan Almighty,” didn’t detail her plans for life after the show. “I did say to my agent, ‘Wait, do I have to fly coach now?’ That’s the one thing I really don’t want to do,” she told the magazine. – Associated Presslast_img read more

STRIKE ACTION LOOMS AT DONEGAL WOMEN’S DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SERVICE

Posted on by

first_imgA ballot of union members is to be conducted at Donegal Women’s Domestic Violence Service over what the union has described as reckless decisions by management to cut the hours of workers.Richy Carrothers of IMPACT.IMPACT North West’s Assistant General Secretary, Richy Carrothers said Donegal Women’s Domestic Violence have written to staff advising that as of the 4th May 2015 the hours of all workers will be cut.He said “This will obviously lead to a pay cut. To date the employer has not advised as to the extent of the cut but for sure it will lead to the curtailment of essential services for some of the most vulnerable women in Donegal and across the North West living with physical, sexual and psychological abuse. For many of these women this service represents a lifeline that may not be available when they need it most”. He added that IMPACT believe that there is a moral imperative to protect the service, but also the unilateral cut will also be a breach of contract.“In the last two years a Rights Commissioner has found that Donegal Women’s Domestic Violence Service unlawfully withheld money due on two separate occasions to 5 staff – the employers case collapsed at the Employment Appeals Tribunal and the union is now having to seek an enforcement order for payment at Letterkenny Circuit Court.“The reason this is relevant is that an organisation dedicated to the protection, support and advocacy of women have serially been abusing their own exclusively female staff over the last numbers of years as they have set out to dismantle their contracts of employment”.Mr Carrothers added they can no longer tolerate this situation and the staff intend on standing up for themselves and say stop. “IMPACT will seek a mandate from members to engage in industrial action up to and including strike action as a pre-emptive step to protect workers. It is however, our preference to reach a negotiated settlement and protect services without the need for us to engage in industrial action”. STRIKE ACTION LOOMS AT DONEGAL WOMEN’S DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SERVICE was last modified: April 8th, 2015 by StephenShare 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:Donegal Domestic Violence CentreIMPACTlast_img read more
