Champs highly fancied! … Calabar set for tight battle, Edwin Allen set for runaway win

first_imgCalabar High and Edwin Allen High schools will certainly retain their respective titles at the 2016 Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships. Well, at least that’s what the experts believe. However, it isn’t that simple. The challengers are plenty, and determination and ambition run deep in the rival ranks, meaning that the defending champions will have to sharpen their swords and lift their shields over the next five days as we brace for another exciting race to the top of high-school athletics. Twenty-one preliminary events are scheduled for today’s opening day of action at the National Stadium, with a number of top athletes getting the chance to make an early impression. EVENTS Among today’s events, the Class One Boys’ long jump, the Girls’ Class Two shot put, the sprint hurdles, Girls’ Class One discus, as well as the 400m preliminaries, will all take focus. Edwin Allen enter this year’s championships at the top end of what appears to be a growing dynasty, having won back-to-back Girls’ titles and three of the last four. Tuned by Michael Dyke and led by captain and top sprinter Shellece Clarke, the girls from Frankfield, Clarendon, boast a well-rounded unit, which threatens to increase the gap between themselves and their rivals beyond the 100 points gulf that underlined their dominance in 2015. That’s bad news for the chasing pack, which, this year, is being headed by the girls from St Jago High, with the ever-improving Hydel High and old warriors Holmwood Technical all showing promise this season. They will, however, have to wait a while longer as based on their form this year, there is little to suggest that anyone will have enough to unseat a well-oiled Edwin Allen machine. Things are expected to be a lot closer among the boys, where four-time defending champions Calabar will be looking to add to their 25 titles. With the excellent Christopher Taylor leading their talented crop of sprinters, and Warren Barrett again taking charge of the throws corps, the Red Hills Road-based Calabar unit seems more than capable of holding off what is expected to be a fierce challenge from old foes Kingston College (KC) and Jamaica College (JC). 4x400m RELAY It’s a battle that will most likely take us into the curtain-closing 4x400m relay Open event, with early projections tipping Calabar to ultimately lift the Mortimer Geddes Trophy, with a 20-odd points victory over KC. So there’s hardly any margin for error. Kingston College – winless since 2009 – have a few Titans of their own, with the likes of quarter-mile record holder Akeem Bloomfield and Class One double sprint gold medal hopeful Jhevaughn Matherson expected to carry major points for the Fortis clan. Jamaica College, who last tasted title success in 2011, have been steady, if not spectacular, throughout the season quietly going about their business at the various development meets. They should make much of the early noise at these championships, with the jumping standout O’Brien Wasome expected to fire a few warning shots in the long jump pit. Whether they have enough to upset the Calabar-KC duopoly will depend a lot on their execution in the events that they are expected to dominate and their ability to steal points from their rivals on a regular basis. Either way, the stage has been set for the 106th staging of what is widely viewed as the best event of its kind, a showpiece of excellence where age group athletics performance is concerned. The first strides will be taken today, and we are bound to get to a glorious end for some and anguish for others, but there are sure to be many memorable stops along the way.last_img read more

Seeing Farming as an Art

first_imgArtist: one who has the ability to bring out the inherent or natural beauty of something.David Moore showed us he was an artist the very first time he set foot on our road into the farm. We already loved our farm and felt it was a beautiful site. But when David began to walk down the road, he immediately started pointing out hidden beauty we never knew existed there. For one thing, he heard the sound of bees. He suggested honey production. We’d seen an Abundance of bees making hives all over the place, but never paid attention to the sound or seriously considered honey production. Bees are attracted to some natural beauty within the land. David knows how to balance the bees’ role and the farmer’s role to produce a beautiful, shared product: honey – an art indeed.Many artists inherit their talent from parents or a family member. David’s father was a farmer and greatly influenced him. As a small boy, David marveled at how few foods their family had to buy from the market. His father grew food in Abundance. And so they had enough for their family’s consumption; the extra food, the Abundance could be sold on the market. Today, David teaches young farmers – some of them single-parent mothers, to do the same thing. From a small parcel of land, they grow food in Abundance – enough for their families and enough to sell on the market.David’s daughter realized that she was gifted with her father’s and grandfather’s talent. So she followed in her father’s footsteps, got her training in agriculture at the university as he did, and is now Bong County Coordinator for the West Africa Agricultural Productivity Programme (WAAPP). David says training in the art of farming is very important because Liberia has changed. The dynamics of our land and people have changed and we must learn to farm in a more sustainable way. Farmers of today must have the willingness to learn the prime factors of sustainable farming and practice its best principles.Even with all the “book” knowledge, however, the most important quality a person must have to be successful in natural farming is the “love and passion of farming. In Liberia, if you tell any man, ‘You are a farmer.’ He feels insulted. No passion.” Your passion for farming must be so strong that you will Persevere until you get the results you must have.David’s Perseverance always yields amazing results: “When I try to grow something for the first time and fail; then I try the second time and fail; then I may fail again and again until I finally succeed! That is most amazing to me.” Consistent Perseverance can yield a work of art: “My proudest farming moment is right now where I’ve cultivated my twenty-five acre farm with palm and integrated beans with it.”David Moore, proof that farming is one of the Cultural Arts.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Pep the perfectionist delivers a Manchester masterpiece

first_imgUsed to the highest of demands from his spells at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, Guardiola believed other clubs may have been more ruthless after City finished 15 points behind Chelsea in third in the Premier League last season.But City were never likely to cut Guardiola adrift so quickly having waited so long to land him in the first place.Pep Guardiola went trophyless in his first season at Manchester City © AFP/File / Paul ELLISThat patience has been rewarded in spectacular fashion as City wrapped up the title with five games to spare to match Manchester United’s record for the earliest Premier League title win in 2000/2001.While Guardiola has admitted to doubts over his future last season, he never wavered in the way he wanted his side to play.“Last season many times when I was asked — it works to play my way and I said ‘I am going to insist’, I never had a doubt about that,” Guardiola said recently.Mocked at times in the British media for stating he does not train players how to tackle, questions were raised whether Guardiola’s style, learned at the knee of the legendary Johan Cruyff at Barcelona, was compatible with the more physical approach of the Premier League.“For those of us brought up on those ideas, who have internalised them so deeply, it’s like a religion,” former Barcelona great Xavi Hernandez told the Guardian newspaper of his old coach. “Pep is a purist.”– ‘Ruthless, intense, obsessive’ –Guardiola has proven his point, but he had to show a ruthless streak of his own along the way.Pep Guardiola (left) oversees Barcelona training in 2009 © AFP/File / GABRIEL BOUYSClaudio Bravo’s series of costly errors in goal saw him replaced by the excellent Ederson to give City a far more stable platform from which to build.Critics point to the enormous sums City have splashed on players before and during Guardiola’s reign, with nearly £500 million ($700 million) spent on transfer fees in the past two seasons alone.But the secret to Guardiola’s success is also taking the raw talent at his disposal and harnessing it into something even more special.“A manager like that brings the best out of you, he makes sure to tell you when you’re in the wrong,” said Raheem Sterling, who has finally delivered on his abundant potential, scoring 21 goals this season.While moulding the prodigious talents of Sterling, Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sane, Guardiola has also kept City’s old guard from two previous Premier League title triumphs.Forced to battle for his place in the team with Jesus, City’s all-time top scorer Sergio Aguero described the Catalan as the best coach he has ever had after netting in the League Cup final in February to deliver Guardiola’s first trophy at City.Guardiola’s magic comes from a mix of relentless work on the training ground and intensive study of his opponents.In the book “Pep Confidential” chronicling Guardiola’s first season at Bayern, Catalan author Marti Perarnau describes Guardiola’s process of burying himself in his study for hours until he finds his “eureka” moment of how to defeat the opposition.“He is obsessive, he would keep going until he got it right,” added Xavi. “He demands so much from himself. And that pressure that he puts on himself, those demands are contagious — it spreads to everyone. He wants everything to be perfect.”Having beaten all before him at Barca and Bayern, Guardiola now has his masterpiece in Manchester too.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has added the English Premier League title to his glittering CV © AFP/File / OLI SCARFFMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Apr 15 – Less than 12 months ago Pep Guardiola feared he could be facing the sack at Manchester City after his first trophyless season in an almost impeccable coaching career.Now he has added to three league titles in both Spain and Germany by conquering England in a style that has provoked comparisons with the greatest sides ever seen in the Premier League.last_img read more

Guardiola refuses to start fresh Mourinho war of words

first_img0Shares0000Manchester United’s manager Jose Mourinho (L) shakes hands with Manchester City’s counterpart Pep Guardiola after their English Football League Cup match, in October 2016NEWCASTLE, United Kingdom, Dec 28 – Pep Guardiola refused to be drawn into a war of words with Jose Mourinho after Manchester City maintained their impressive progress towards the Premier League title.City stretched their commanding advantage at the top to 15 points over Manchester United as Raheem Sterling sealed a 1-0 win at Newcastle to record an 18th consecutive league victory, one short of Bayern Munich’s current best for Europe’s top five leagues of 19 straight wins. United manager Mourinho attempted to provoke Guardiola on Tuesday after pointing to their rivals’ huge spending power by claiming “City buy full-backs for the price of strikers” and insisting that the £300 million ($402 million) he has spent since taking charge at Old Trafford 18 months ago as “not enough”.Mourinho paid £93 million to sign France midfielder Paul Pogba, while also recruiting £30 million defender Eric Bailly, and midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan for £26.3 million.This year, United spent £75 million on striker Romelu Lukaku, as well as £31 million on defender Victor Lindelof and £40 million for midfielder Nemanja Matic.In comparison, City bought three defenders — Kyle Walker from Tottenham for an initial £45 million, Benjamin Mendy from Monaco for £52 million and Danilo from Real Madrid for £26.5 million as part of a summer outlay that topped £200 million.When asked about the comments made by the Portuguese, Guardiola said: “I’m so delighted to be here to speak about what happened on the pitch.“About what happened with my colleague speaking off the pitch in the press conference, I’m not the right guy. You want to talk about what happened today on the pitch, I will answer.”City remain on course to win the title in record time after equalling Chelsea’s English top flight record of 11 consecutive away wins.But Guardiola will await medical updates on Vincent Kompany, after the injury-prone skipper limped off with a recurrence of a long-term calf problem.– Terrible schedule –City face a minimum of eight games in 34 days in a hectic start to the New Year, and Guardiola added: “Of course we are happy to break records but when we prepare for games we don’t speak about them. Until now, we have found a way to win.“I saw the schedule in my office the other day and I wanted to escape, because it’s terrible. The games we are going to play, it’s tough.“We’ve played all these games in December then in January you have the Carabao Cup and FA Cup and then the return of the Champions League in February.“It will be tough but it will also be tough for our opponents.”Guardiola’s opposite number Rafa Benitez hit back at criticism of his negative approach after his team slid to a fifth consecutive home defeat, Newcastle’s worst run at St James’ Park for 64 years to leave them just a point above the bottom three after one win in their last 11 matches.Substitute Dwight Gayle almost snatched a dramatic late equaliser to in-part justify the manager’s ultra-cautious approach, and the Spaniard said: “We were in the game until the end and very close to getting a point against a very good team.”Newcastle face the key visit of relegation rivals Brighton before the turn of the year, and Benitez added: “We have a couple of games in the space of a few days against teams near the bottom of the table and hopefully we’ll have some of our injured players back before then.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

College notes: CSUN women’s streak is a real kick

first_imgTerry Davila readily acknowledges that his Cal State Northridge women’s soccer team is “not great at anything” – aside from winning. The Matadors are riding a school-record nine-game winning streak into their Big West Conference showdown Friday at 19th-ranked Cal State Fullerton, off to a 10-1 start despite losing its best forward and one of its top defenders to injury and spending most of the season’s first five weeks on the road. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 Forward Mary Ortega has scored three goals off the bench, and fellow Saugus product Rachel Gillis has been huge defensively after Jackie Kecskes suffered a knee injury. Kecskes has returned and might start in Fullerton. Krohn has eight goals in nine games and was honored Monday as Big West Player of the Week after extending her goalscoring streak to four games in conference-opening victories over UC Irvine and Long Beach State. She’s an “unpredictable player … with good speed and balance,” Davila says. Most critical is Monka, who has six goals and five assists; Davila praises her “ability to make the other players around her better.” Can the Matadors keep winning? “You know, as a coach, you’re always going in thinking you can win every game,” Davila says. “Our biggest games are ahead of us. This weekend will be big indicator of where we are.” “They’re just tough, tough kids,” says Davila, who also coaches the CSUN men. “What’s great about this team is we do each facet of the game pretty well. We’re not great at anything, we just do everything pretty well.” The Matadors are solid up front, with sophomore Kristy Krohn (L.A. Baptist of North Hills) stepping up when star Kaitlyn Kelly (Thousand Oaks) suffered a torn ACL in the second game, a loss at Fresno State; superb in midfield, behind playmaker Brianna Monka (Rio Mesa of Camarillo), an Oregon State transfer, and sophomore Suzie Mischenko, the team leader; and strong at the back, with freshman anchor Nalena Betancourt (Moorpark) and outside back Sara Davis, a Washington transfer. center_img Also: Pepperdine is No. 1 in women’s golf following a victory at the season-opening Dick McGuire Invitational in Albuquerque, N.M.
