Rematch in two-lap event

first_imgLast year, it seemed certain that mercurial Javauney James of Saint Elizabeth Technical High School would make a run at the Class Two 800 metres record during the course of the ISSA-GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Championships. That mark – 1 minute 52.27 by Aldwyn Sappleton – had stood since 1997 and James, the reigning champion, seemed to have prepared well. The evidence appeared at the Gibson-McCook Relays when he ran a 4×800 anchor leg in 1.51.5. The record attempt fizzled when James added the 400 metres to his championships programme. He defended his 1500m title on Champs Friday and was a good fourth in the 400m the following day. When challenged by Leon Clarke of St Jago High School two hours later in the 800m final, he had no energy to resist and had to settle for the silver medal. While he concentrated mostly on the 400 metres hurdles after that, Clarke, the tall St Jago boy, reached the finals of the 800m at both the World Youth Championships and the Commonwealth Youth Games. On the way, he lowered his personal best from 1.51.33 at the National Senior Championships to 1.50.70 at the World Youth event and finally to 1.50.49 at the Commonwealth Youth Games. Both have decent speed. James covered 400 metres in 48.33 seconds at Champs last year. Clarke’s fastest time in the one-lap event is 48.70 seconds. James, whose 800m win streak dated back to his days in Class Three, will want to regain the ascendancy. If he and the long-legged Clarke, now in Class One, are both fresh, they may stretch defending champion Paul Tate, also of Saint Elizabeth Technical, with the ensuing battle drawing them close to the 1.50 barrier, with three other 2015 finalists -Shemar Walker of Jamaica College, Shevon Parkes of Bellefield, who is the 2015 1500m champion, and Rojay Granston of Holmwood all in the medal picture. LOFTY THRESHOLD No one has breached that lofty threshold at Champs since 1990 when Clevon Clair of Jamaica College and Mike Williams of St Jago clocked 1.49.51 and 1.49.96, respectively. James’ teammate Shemar Salmon ran a 1.52 flat 4×800 relay split last week at the Central Hurdles and Relays. He ran three individual events, the 800m, 1500m and 5000m in Class Two last year, possibly in pursuit of valuable Championship points. The gambit failed as the lad ended in a non-scoring ninth place in the 1500m final, after being tipped to medal in an event where he had beaten James earlier in the season. He was third in the 800m and second in the 5000m. Girls often do the 800m-1500m-3000m triple, but the 800m-1500m-5000m combo is rare. While the girls’ 3000m has been contested as a straight final for many years, the boys’ 5000m always has a preliminary round race. That makes for a particularly tough Champs Thursday with the first round of the 1500m at 9:35 a.m. on the 2015 schedule, the 800m semis at 4:30 p.m., and the 5000m preliminaries at 5:20 p.m. – Hubert Lawrence has attended Champs since 1980.last_img read more

Leicester players ‘want answers’ over Shakespeare sacking

first_imgHe said he was unable to answer the questions the players had about why Shakespeare was dismissed and did not rule out the possibility of one or more senior players in the group requesting answers from the Thai owners.“Obviously the meeting before we went out to training was a little bit raw,” said Appleton, whose first game as boss is at Swansea on Saturday.“The lads were a little bit cheesed off first thing and a bit down in the dumps in the meeting that we had in the media room. People were disappointed and wanted questions answered but I’m not the person for that.“From my point of view it’s all the questions that are for certain senior members and not myself. I didn’t release Craig and I’m not sure of the reasons why.”Shakespeare was sacked after Monday’s 1-1 home draw with West Brom left 2015-16 champions Leicester without a win in six Premier League matches, languishing in relegation zone in the table’s bottom three.But Appleton said he had not felt any indication from the owners that Shakespeare was under pressure.“No, no there wasn’t,” he said. You would expect some sort of indication, he said, “but I can assure you no there wasn’t”.Appleton hopes any players who feel Shakespeare was hard done by can channel that emotion into helping Leicester to a much-needed win against Swansea.“There’s no doubt about it that Craig had an incredible relationship with everybody at the football club,” he said.“These players want to win games, they want to win games of football for their manager, and if what’s happened over the last couple of days is the motivation that they need to get the three points, then great.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Michael Appleton was placed in charge at Leicester City following the dismissal of Craig Shakespeare (pictured) on Tuesday © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 20 – Leicester City caretaker manager Michael Appleton believes the owners of the former Premier League champions could face questions from players over Craig Shakespeare’s sacking.Appleton was placed in charge following Shakespeare’s dismissal on Tuesday and described the atmosphere among the squad as “cheesed off” and “raw” when he took his first training session.last_img read more

GIZ A JOB! STUDENTS TO TEAM UP WITH LOCAL EMPLOYERS ON UNIQUE SCHEME

first_imgStudents in Letterkenny are to take part in a unique scheme which will match them up with local employers.Letterkenny Institute of Technology Student Union, in conjunction with Letterkenny Chamber of Commerce and Letterkenny Institute of Technology, will officially launch the Business Employment Scheme for Students (BESS) on campus at the LYIT, on Monday, September 21st.The BESS initiative, a brain child of the Student Union President, Dylan McGowan, has been developed to enable students and businesses to engage with each other, for the purpose of providing part-time or temporary jobs for students. This pilot programme hopes to assist local businesses, by providing the local business network with access to LYIT students, who may be seeking part-time or temporary work.Dylan McGowan, Student Union President, said “I know what it’s like to be a struggling student; this initiative aims to match local business needs, with needs of LYIT students, seeking part-time work. With thanks to Catherine Lyster, Careers Officer at LYIT, I have been able to bring this initiative to the pilot stage. I have been overwhelmed by the response from local businesses to get involved in the BESS programme, and this is thanks to Toni Forrester, Letterkenny Chamber of Commerce, who has backed this initiative. ”Toni Forrester, Letterkenny Chamber has also welcomed the scheme.“Letterkenny Chamber has always recognised the value of LYIT and indeed the students to the economy.

This scheme will give local employers an opportunity to advertise and their vacancies at no cost and directly to students. We will be encouraging our members to avail of this unique and new service.”Paul Hannigan, President, LYIT, is also supporting this scheme.He said “I am delighted by the initiative shown by Students Union President, Dylan McGowan and his colleagues in this project. At Letterkenny IT we aspire to support the local economy through engagement with various stakeholders including businesses of the region. This initiative will be viewed as a useful asset to businesses in the locality as we have bright, ambitious and hard-working students on both our campuses who would relish the opportunity of part-time work in the locality.“While encouraging students to avail of this opportunity we know they must achieve an appropriate balance with their studies. This year we envisage it to be a pilot programme but hopefully with the help of feedback from participating businesses, this initiative can become solidified over time”.If you are a business, interested in learning more about the BESS programme please contact;• Dylan McGowan, Student Union President, directly on 0867702701, supresident@lyit.ie• Catherine Lyster, Careers Officer, 074 9186812, careers@lyit.ie• Toni Forrester, Chief Executive Officer, Letterkenny Chamber of Commerce on 074 9124866.

Video: Must watch Tedx Talks of inspiring South African women

first_imgMelissa JavanAmo NgoepeAmo Ngoepe learned the true meaning of the African proverb – “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together” – as she traversed the continent over 64 days.Speaking at a Tedx event hosted in Soweto Ngoepe shared stories from her adventure as she travelled from South Africa to Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, Malawi, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia.She challenged herself to use nothing but public transport during her journey. For her, it was the best way to learn about each country. It opened her eyes to the warm heart of Africa. Trusting strangers, she learnt, allowed her experience adventures she would never have had otherwise.Watch Ngoepe share her extraordinary story:Dr Kopano Matlwa MabasoDr Kopano Matlwa Mabaso and her partner, Dr Chrystelle Wedi, dream of setting up ultrasound clinics in rural Africa. Their Ona-Matoko-Lako (See Your Baby) project, winner of an Aspen Ideas Award, gives women an opportunity to ‘see their baby’ through free ultrasonography. Her Tedx Talk covered the challenges of bringing antenatal healthcare to communities without water, sanitation, electricity or healthcare.Watch how Mabaso learned to look for light in a dark situation:Deshun DeyselDeysel was the first Black African woman to climb to the peak of Everest. Today, as a motivational speaker, she helps people understand that the size of the challenge facing you does not matter. What does matter is the desire to overcome that challenge. Her Peak Performance Toolkit addresses things like the importance of aspiration, self-mastery, competence and your environment. These areas play a role in your journey to success.Watch and learn from Deysel on how goals can become achievable:Botlhale TshetloTshetlo bought flowers for men she did not know. She paid for a stranger’s car to be washed. She encouraged her daughter to donate her own clothing to an under- privileged child. In challenging herself with 38 random acts of kindness, Tshetlo learned about herself and how to connect with the world around her.Watch Tshetlo talk about her experience:Molly BlankWe should not allow our circumstances to dictate how we lead our lives. This simple lesson is what American filmmaker Molly Blank hoped to teach with her documentary project Schools that Work. She has made South Africa her home. Blank visited 19 schools [for her project] that despite being in disadvantaged communities, students, teachers and parents strived to rise above the challenges and defy stereotypes.Watch scenes out of Molly Black’s video series, and listen to her reasons for undertaking this project:Thulani NdzotyanaWhat would South Africa 2044 be with Thuli Ndzotyana as president? This was the question Ndzotyana tried to answer during her Tedx Talk. The Alexander High School student believes her generation needs to find their own voice to help create the future they see for themselves. As president, she believes, her generation would look past colour. “It will be a South Africa of acceptance, not tolerance. The problem [now] is we continue to rank our differences.”Watch Ndzotyana talk about how she sees South Africa:Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
