Shelly shines in Zurich

first_imgAS EXPECTED it was a rapturous reception for the three-time World 100-metre champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce in Zurich as the sprinter took the winner’s spot on a chilly night in Switzerland.The diminutive sprinter led from gun to tape and never looked in danger of losing.Smiling as always, the 28-year-old told The Gleaner it was nice to compete but found it difficult to get herself in the zone which may have seen her register a personal best.”I just wanted to come out here and put a race together, it’s always the hardest race of the year after a major championships. To be honest, I wasn’t in a similar zone to where I was in the World Championships. I was still focused when I got to the warm-up area, and focused on what I had to do, but it was different.”ASATISFIEDSHELLYShe added: “There is no more to ask for; I won the World Championships and the Diamond race. I am glad I finished first here. Each time I come here, I want to do my best.”I have one more race to go on Sunday, unless my coach changes things.”Veronica Campbell-Brown and Natasha Morrison finished sixth and seventh, respectively. Campbell-Brown told The Gleaner that she wasn’t going to give herself a hard time without reviewing the race, but was understandably underwhelmed by her placing sixth and at a time of 11.22.She said: “My season started rough, but it turned around and wasn’t too bad. I am grateful. I have a couple of years left, I’ll see what happens and what God has in store. Taking it season by season.”Jason Morgan, national record holder in the discus, struggling with injury and a lack of financial support, demonstrated why the country is getting excited by the possibilities of what could be in Rio de Janeiro at the Olympic Games next year.Morgan’s season came off the rails when he was injured prior to the World Championships in Beijing where the big man finished 22nd.SLIPPERYCONDITIONSSlippery conditions in Zurich meant he was unable to get near his season’s best throw of 68.19m. But having set the bar high this year, all bodes well for 2016.Another athlete who has surprised a few is Rasheed Dwyer. His 200m second placing confirmed, along with the likes of Elaine Thompson, that Jamaican sprinting has depth and is always progressing.Thompson looked imperious in the non-Diamond League 100m race, beating her fellow compatriots Sherone Simpson and Kerron Stewart in the process.The bittersweet feeling of having run so fast in Beijing yet finishing second behind Dafne Schippers will no doubt add fuel to the fire for Thompson. A training partner of Fraser-Pryce, the standard of the deuce is about to go through the roof and the 23-year-old is widely tipped to be the person to take it there.Her 11.06 win in Switzerland was a world away from her personal best time of 10.84 which she set earlier this season. But her strength is omnipresent and she will no doubt be one of the women to beat come next season.If there was a performance which warranted cause for concern, it would have been Veronica Campbell-Brown, who finished sixth in the 100m.The seasoned campaigner that she is, Campbell-Brown refused to read too much into her race, preferring instead to go away and assess once the emotion of the day had dissipated. She’s far from finished, but one gets the sense that things are getting harder with each season.One man who knew he hadn’t performed but still left the track on a positive note was Nickel Ashmeade.His 20.35 fourth-place finish in the 200m was far from a let-down, but the stalwart has been suffering with injury all season and hadn’t managed to find form when it mattered most.last_img read more

Polack swings attention to league, Cup hunt

first_img“No one loves to lose and we are disappointed definitely that we couldn’t achieve one of our targets. But there were so many circumstances that surrounded our campaign and sometimes, there is only so much you can ask of the players. We take it on the chin and move forward,” Polack told Capital Sports shortly after the team jetted back from Congo.“We had a chat with the players after the game and we made that decision to move on from here. We have to go back to defend the league title and fight for the Cup as well. We have one trophy already and if we can win two more, then we can count that as a successful season,” added the British tactician.The team has been clouded with financial struggles since the exit of sponsors SportPesa with players reportedly going for months without salaries and allowances.At the same time, Gor had a thinned squad heading to the CAF tournaments with most of the new signings having not been registered by the time the window closed.Gor Mahia defender Joash Onyango in action against a DC Motema Pembe player. Photo/RAYMOND MAKHAYA“I think we had one of the smallest squads in the competition and then add on the fact that there were injuries and suspensions, it was hard for us,” stated Polack.He has also stated that the high number of new players in the squad as well as a new technical bench was also a factor, saying that success in continental football is always hinged on a squad that has been together for long.“We need to be together for long and that requires patience. We had four or five new players in the squad and sometimes that is a problem,” he noted.Looking back at the home and away ties against Motema Pembe, Polack decried poor finishing as the biggest factor that led to their exit, saying they should have easily and comfortably wrapped up both ends of the tie.“We competed really well but we lacked composure infront of goal. In the first leg and second leg we had the chances but couldn’t finish. Even after we conceded the second goal in Kinshasa, we had good chances to score,”Gor Mahia head coach Steven Polack with his assistant Patrick Odhiambo during the CAF Champions League match against Algeria’s USM Alger at the Kasarani Stadium on September 29, 2019“We have to keep our heads up and keep working hard to improve every aspect of our game,” he added.K’Ogalo will shift their focus back to KPL action and will only have one day to rest before taking on Mathare United in a crunch tie in Machakos on Wednesday. After that, they will prepare for the big one, the Mashemeji Derby against arch rivals AFC Leopards on Sunday.“We will need to rest a few legs to ensure that everyone gets a rest and is ready for Sunday. We need to have a good response on Wednesday and win because that will set us in a good mood of confidence,” Polack opined.Victory for Gor will see them rise back to the summit of the KPL standings as they are placed second with 15 points after five games, just one shy of Tusker FC who have played three games more.0Shares0000(Visited 26 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia FC head coach Steve Polack during a past match.

Government fails to recognise threat of housing shortage to economy – Doherty TD

first_imgPearse Doherty TD has challenged the government on their failure to acknowledge the serious threat posed by the housing crisis to the Irish economy.Speaking following Oral Questions today during which he questioned Minister for Finance Pascal Donohoe on the government’s response to the crisis, Teachta Doherty said: “The European Commission has named the severe housing shortage in this state as a major threat to the Irish economy.“Soaring rents and extortionate house prices are contributing to a daily struggle by countless families to make ends meet. Citizens in this state are faced with some of the highest living costs in the developed world. “On top of the 10,000 citizens now forced into homelessness, the housing crisis threatens our ability to attract investment and workers from abroad, while placing additional financial pressures on business.“The government may pay lip service to the crisis they have created, but there is only one solution which they refuse to acknowledge.“Sinn Féin says clearly that the only responsible course of action is investment. In the coming budget, we would double investment in social and affordable housing from the government’s spending in 2018.”Government fails to recognise threat of housing shortage to economy – Doherty TD was last modified: July 11th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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)last_img read more

Which horses can challenge Stradivarius in Ascot Gold Cup?

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesWest London doesn’t have a racecourse, but Ascot is the next best thing. Each year, thousands of Londoners flock across to Ascot for one of the major events of the racing calendar.The Cup division on the Flat last season was all about one horse. Stradivarius was spotless in five consecutive victories ranging from between one mile six furlongs and two miles four furlongs for trainer John Gosden and owner Bjorn Nielsen. Weatherbys Hamilton offered their Stayers’ Million bonus up to any horse that could win a qualifying race, then the Ascot Gold Cup, go on to Glorious Goodwood and win there, and also land the Lonsdale Cup during York’s Ebor Festival. Stradivarius did exactly that. He even managed to add the Long Distance Cup on British Champions Day back at Ascot on unfavourably soft ground when jockey Frankie Dettori squeezed him up the rail to round off an unbeaten season.The Stayers’ Million series is back this year and, now that the qualifying races have ended, a fresh crop of challengers to Stradivarius have emerged. Will he find retaining his crown at five more difficult than winning it as a four-year-old?These two horses, in particular, are ones to be wary of and are set to clash with Stradivarius in the Ascot Gold Cup during the royal meeting on Thursday, 20 June.Embed from Getty ImagesCross CounterGodolphin-owned gelding Cross Counter had a memorable and historic campaign of his own last season. Trained by Charlie Appleby, the four-year-old smashed the course record for one mile four furlongs at Goodwood before finishing a gallant head runner-up to stable companion Old Persian in the Great Voltigeur at York.As he’s not a colt, Cross Counter couldn’t go on to the St Leger like many horses that ran in that Ebor Festival event. Instead, he was sent Down Under to Flemington and contested the race that stops a nation, the Melbourne Cup.No British-trained horse had ever won the valuable Group 1 staying handicap over about 2 miles, but Cross Counter got up close and scored by a cosy length despite getting hampered more than once in-running. It was a historic effort that pointed to Sheikh Mohammed having a hand to play in the Cup division this year.Cross Counter confirmed that by becoming the first horse to qualify for the WH Stayers’ Million when comfortably beating another Appleby inmate, Ispolini, in the Dubai Gold Cup on World Cup night in Meydan at the end of March.As he remains unexposed as a stayer despite those two high-profile successes over 2 miles, Cross Counter is a clear and present danger to Stradivarius in the Ascot Gold Cup. At best ante-post odds of 9/2, it could be well worthwhile using racing free bets on him against the favourite and reigning champ.Dee Ex BeeMark Johnston is British racing’s most successful Flat trainer, and among his many triumphs are three in the Ascot Gold Cup. Last season’s Epsom Derby runner-up Dee Ex Bee has really come into his own when upped in trip and is another horse that can give Stradivarius plenty to think about.Like Cross Counter, Dee Ex Bee is a year younger than the favourite. He enjoyed a busy campaign without success last season, but still ran some fine races in defeat.Johnston always maintained that Dee Ex Bee would really shine when given a true test of stamina. and he’s come out and won two of the WH Stayers’ Million qualifiers. The first of those was the Group 3 Sagaro Stakes over two miles at Ascot, and that has given him vital course experience.While Dee Ex Bee has been in betting tips many times in his career, he has repaid backers in both the Sagaro and Henry II Stakes at Sandown. He took on two other Johnston inmates in the latter, giving weight all-round and galloping on relentlessly to follow-up on his Ascot victory.As he’s relatively unexposed as a stayer compared to dual Goodwood Cup and Yorkshire Cup winner Stradivarius, Dee Ex Bee has to come into the equation for Royal Ascot. However, he is at a current top-price of 13/2 for the two-miles four-furlongs test, so Dee Ex Bee is certainly one to watch.
