200m title means more to Bolt – Sprint king admits task is ‘harder’ than winning 100m

first_imgBEIJING, China: His 100m clash with American Justin Gatlin may have been the main talking point, but as far as sprint king Usain Bolt is concerned, retaining his 200m title at the IAAF World Championships would mean more to him than Sunday’s 100m triumph inside the Bird’s Nest. “It would mean a lot more to me to win this 200m, a lot more than it meant for the 100m,” Bolt said yesterday. “For me, I’m trying to get through these rounds as comfortable as possible, with as least energy as possible, go in the final and give my best.” The Jamaican is also bracing for what he expects to be a much tougher task, as he looks to extend his record to an unmatched four consecutive World Championships gold medals in the event. Bolt is also joined with Frankie Fredericks as the male athletes with the most 200m medals at the World Championships, with four. Another will put him one behind Merlene Ottey as the most successful of all time in the event at these championships. Lining up in the heats, Bolt ran his best 200m of the season yesterday; not that it would have been too difficult to do so, given this pedestrian times in the event this year. He appeared controlled and relaxed to finish in 20.28 seconds, with Cuba’s Roberto Skyers, 20.29, and Yancarlos Martinez (Dominican Republic) third in 20.34. Running is perhaps an overstatement, considering the sprinter’s ease, as he only ran about 130 metres of the race and casually jogged to the line, conserving energy and keeping sore legs as fresh as possible for the real assignment ahead – the 200m final – which he expects to be even more challenging than the 100m, which he won in 9.79 on Sunday. “I definitely think the 200m will be harder (than the 100m). My fitness will be in question, but, overall, it should be good,” added Bolt, whose world record 19.19 (Berlin 2009), 19.40 (Daegu 2011) and 19.66 (Moscow) are the three fastest times ever recorded in a World Championships 200m final. Bolt will be joined in the semi-final round, set for 7:30 a.m. this morning, by all three of his countrymen in the event. Warren Weir, the 2012 Olympic bronze- and 2013 World Championships silver-medal winner, came off the curve in front, but didn’t seem to be too worried to actually win his heat, finishing second in 20.24, with Julian Forte, 20.14, also easing up at the line as Jamaica-based Great Britain athlete Zharnel Hughes took the win. Nickel Ashmeade, in the same heat as Gatlin, was third in a time of 20.40; as Gatlin, the fastest man in the event this year with a mark of 19.57, eased into the win with a time of 20.19. Jamaica is the first country to qualify four athletes to a 400m final at any major global championships after Shericka Jackson, who enters with the second-fastest time; Stephenie-Ann McPherson; Novlene Williams- Mills; and Christine Day all secured lanes. Jackson coasted to the line with medal favourite Allyson Felix (USA), who ran 49.89, with the Jamaican logging a personal-best 50.03, as the pair dominated their semi-final field. Williams-Mills, who has been struggling with a thyroid infection this season, was third in 50.47, her first time below 51 seconds this year. McPherson ran her fastest time of the season, 50.32, to finish behind the championship-primed Brit, Christine Ohoruogu, 50.16, while Day posted 50.82 to finish behind another favourite, Shaunae Miller from The Bahamas, who clocked 50.12 for her win.

Tacky fifth-former wows fans at golf tourney

first_img After winning the junior title at the Caribbean Amateur Golf Championships in St Croix, United States Virgin Islands, in July, Evans was invited to participate in the prestigious Duke of York Young Champions Trophy. The Duke of York Young Champions Trophy is an international 54-hole stroke play golf tournament for young men and women who are either current holders of their Under-18 national championship or have won some other major golfing event in the preceding year. The inaugural tournament was played in 2001 with 12 players from six countries. Since then, The Duke of York Young Champions Trophy has expanded and now draws players from across the world. It aims to promote the development of junior golf, encourage competitiveness and friendship between individual champions, while providing them with an opportunity to play on Open venue courses against their peers. The event counts towards the World Amateur Golf Ranking. EACH time Romaine Evans drove the ball from the ladies’ tee at the par-five 14th hole, the slender Tacky High School fifth-former drew “ooohhs and ahhhs” at the Travel Weekly US Travel Agents Golf Tournament at the Sandals Golf and Country Club in Ocho Rios. Fresh from the September 9-11 Duke of York Young Champions Trophy at Prince’s Golf Course in England, Evans was displaying his driving skills in a Sandals Foundation initiative. Competitors at the weekend travel agents’ tournament contributed a token US$10 to have the youngster and others tee off from the par-five hole, on their behalf. The contribution will go towards the Sandals Foundation, which continues to nurture young Jamaican golfing talent such as Evans and his tee partner, Zandre Roye, two of 23 young players adopted by the programme. Many of the participants in the programme are from in and around the Exchange area of Ocho Rios where Evans lives. However, coach Bill Williams said some travel from as far as Kingston and St Andrew on Saturdays. Evans placed 51st out of 60 participants, but said he learnt invaluable lessons on the greens at Prince’s Golf Course in what he described as his “biggest-ever tournament”. “We played three rounds over three days. It’s a big tournament. Rory McIlroy, the world’s number-one player, was there playing in 2004. Tiger Woods also went one year but couldn’t play because he was too old then,” said Evans, who plans to pursue tertiary studies in electrical installation or mechanics on graduating from Tacky High. “I had never played on a links course before. Their roughs are really rough,” he said, describing the characteristics of links courses, the oldest style of golf courses, first developed in Britain. Links courses are typically characterised by dunes and sandy soil unsuitable for the rolling greens associated with courses elsewhere in the world. “Their roughs have tall grass. It was really hard to get off those roughs. We don’t play in that type of high grass in Jamaica, so I took home that experience with me,” Evans said. However, his next challenge is not on the golf course. “The next step is to get those CXCs then college, overseas, to further my golfing. There are fewer chances in Jamaica to get on the PGA Tour,” he said, pointing to his ambitions of one day going pro. invaluable lessons international championshipslast_img read more

Match-winner Morris looking to reignite career

first_imgSubstitute Ricardo Morris was the difference between title aspirants and former champions Harbour View when both teams met in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) Monday night highlight game at the Harbour View Mini-Stadium. The win improved Portmore United’s tally to 40 points, two more than Arnett Gardens and sole leadership on the league. Morris, gifted enough to be invited to the Reggae Boyz squad as a 17-year-old – but has found himself out of the Portmore starting team – rose from the bench in the 60th minute to add the quality that was sadly lacking but for the flashes shown by the now lighter-hued Paul Wilson. After a number of moves, which failed to get the desired result, it came off for Morris in the 72nd minute as he collected a lovely pass, and dribbling at pace, he cut open the defence, rounded the goalkeeper, and steered home from a narrowing angle to light up the previously dull Harbour View atmosphere. ELATED PLAYER “I feel very happy knowing that I am the one who went on and gave my team the winnings,” the elated player said after the game. While not happy with the amount of time he has spent on the bench so far this season, Morris said that he was happy for the opportunity. “No, no no! The bench is not where I should be, but I am happy that I am in the squad because I had to go home to keep my daughter’s birthday party on Saturday, and I am very happy that I got even a minute this evening. This goal is dedicated to my daughter for sure. She turned four on Saturday,” said the man who starred for St James High School in the daCosta Cup competition alongside Allan Ottey and Fabian McCarthy. Morris opened the season with a double strike in a win over Montego Bay United and scored his third goal of the season a few games after that in a win over Waterhouse but had to wait until the 20th game of the season to get his fourth. “This is my fourth goal of the season. I scored two in the opening game and one against Waterhouse, which was about the fourth or fifth match of the season, but I have not played consistently since then. “I see myself trying to leave the country again to go overseas – anywhere. My desire is to play professionally abroad. I am always putting in the work, but no offers have come as yet, but I am confident it will come,” added the 23-year-old, who had a brief stint with the Tampa Bay Rowdies in 2014. “I am so happy that we are leading the league now. We just have to keep working hard to stay up there. What you will see from now on is me commanding a place in the starting 11,” he promised.last_img read more

first_imgEx-Saint Will Smith gunned down in case of road rage NEW ORLEANS (AP): Former New Orleans Saints player Will Smith was shot and killed in a case of road rage by a man who had rear-ended his car, police said yesterday. Smith was beloved by fans for his role in bringing a Super Bowl championship to New Orleans in 2009, though the defensive captain also found himself at the centre of the NFL’s bounty probe in 2012. Smith’s slaying rippled across the sports world, with figures from NBA star LeBron James to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell offering their condolences. James said on Twitter: “So sad man. Good dude he was man!” There was no indication Smith, 34, knew 28-year-old Cordell Hayes before the deadly confrontation or that anything except the car wreck led to the shooting. Monaco wins US Men’s Clay Court HOUSTON (AP): Argentina’s Juan Monaco took advantage of defending champion Jack Sock’s aching shoulder and leg cramps to rally for a 3-6, 6-3, 7-5 victory yesterday, winning his second US Men’s Clay Court Championship nine months after major wrist surgery. The 32-year-old Monaco, also the 2012 winner at River Oaks, held off a surging Sock in the third set after taking a 4-1 lead. Sock won the next four games but suffered the decisive break in the 11th game when, with his left thigh apparently cramping under the cloudy, humid conditions, missed an underhanded serve. Early in the match, Monaco also received attention from the trainer for an apparent back issue. Sock, the 23-year-old American seeded fourth in defence of his lone ATP World Tour title, said after the match that he had begun feeling poorly with flu-like symptoms Saturday night. He had won 17 consecutive sets in the event, dating to his first-round match last year.last_img read more
