Coaches give warm response to cold therapy

first_imgKINGSTON:Coaches of student athletes participating in the Digicel Grand Prix Athletics Championship are happy that their contestants are enjoying the cool benefits of on-the-ground cold therapy, courtesy of Pure National Ice, one of the partners in the series of youth-development meets across the country.This new ice bath facility, known as the Pure National Ice Cold Therapy Zone, is expected to improve the overall performance of the athletes, especially those who perform in multiple events.”Having this cold therapy treatment here at the meets is a brilliant idea, especially since a lot of the athletes have to perform in multiple events on the same day or even in the same week,” said Leroy Gray, strength and conditioning coach at Racers Track Club and one of the coaches of the Kingston College (KC) track and field team.”This increased level of activity causes the build-up of a lot of lactic acid in their bodies, and the cold therapy is just one of the ways that we can help to remedy that.”Gray added: “I have no doubt that this cold therapy is going to help foster an overall improvement in the performance of the student athletes as it will replenish and recondition their muscles following an event, making them much lighter and re-energised for any subsequent events.”Patrick Johnson, one of the coaches at Excelsior High School, shared similar sentiments.”Today, one of my athletes made a big personal record in the 1500m,” he said at the Youngster Goldsmith track meet. “In order for him to repeat this kind of performance today, or even later this week, he needs this kind of therapy. The same can be said for other students who run the 400-metre final and also have to run the 4×4 relay.”Johnson also commended the sponsors, Pure National Ice and Digicel, saying: “A lot of us as coaches don’t have the means to provide this kind of therapy for our athletes while they are at school, much less while they are at these meets performing. This is quite an upgrade for a lot of them, and I must thank the sponsors for providing this facility at the meets and improving the overall quality of the experience for the students.””The Digicel Grand Prix gave us the opportunity to play a part in supporting sports development in Jamaica and preparing our young athletes for the world stage,” said David Walton, sales and marketing manager at Pure National Ice.”We know that many schools don’t have the capacity to provide this kind of therapy for their students, so we felt the development meets would be an ideal environment to expose them to the benefits of this. We consulted with a number of coaches and sports medicine experts and they all agree that having this type of therapy available on the ground would be highly beneficial to muscle recovery and performance of the athletes.”The Digicel Grand Prix Athletics Championship began on February 6 with the Western Championship at the Catherine Hall Sports Complex in Montego Bay and the Youngster Goldsmith Meet at the National Stadium. The series will culminate at the G.C. Foster Classics slated for February 20.The events include 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, long jump, high jump, discus and the 4x400m relays.

No need for lengthy border exam of Meng Wanzhou before her arrest

first_imgVANCOUVER — The defence team for a Huawei executive whose arrest at Vancouver’s airport sparked a diplomatic crisis between Canada and China says there was no good reason for border officials to detain her for almost three hours before her arrest. Scott Fenton, a defence lawyer for Meng Wanzhou, told the B.C. Supreme Court that border officials already knew that Meng was facing charges in the United States by the time she got off her flight from Hong Kong.He says that means officials also knew she would be arrested and taken before the courts, that they had no power to remove her and that they could already report her as inadmissible because of the allegations she faces in the U.S. Instead, Fenton says she was held for three hours and a border official questioned her about her business in Iran before she was informed of her arrest and read her rights.Meng was arrested Dec. 1, 2018, at the request of the United States, which is seeking her extradition on fraud charges in violation of sanctions with Iran.Both Meng and Chinese tech giant Huawei have denied any wrongdoing and none of the allegations have been tested in court.Fenton says border official recorded that passwords to her phones and relayed them to RCMP along with her electronic devices as evidence that her detention was not a routine border check but a “covert criminal investigation.”He argues the provisional arrest warrant calling for her “immediate” arrest should have taken precedence over an immigration examination.“There was no need for this lengthy examination of the applicant,” he told the court.Meng, who is the chief financial officer of Huawei and the daughter of the company’s founder, is free on bail and living in Vancouver.Meng’s legal team is asking the court to further documentation to support its argument that her arrest at Vancouver’s airport was unlawful ahead of her extradition trial, which is scheduled to begin in January.Canada’s attorney general has not yet presented its response in court, but documents show it will say officials followed the law when they detained Meng and the defence has no proof to substantiate its “conspiracy theory” that she was illegally arrested.This report from The Canadian Press was first published on Sept. 25, 2019.The Canadian Presslast_img read more
