Knee problem a bother for Bryan

first_imgChristoffe Bryan opened his season with a win in the men’s high jump at the Kansas State University (KSU), University of Kansas (KU), Wichita State University (WSU) Showdown in Lawrence, Kansas.Bryan, the former Wolmerian, won with a leap of 2.20m as his team finished second in the contest among the three universities.His countrywoman, Kimberly Williams, won the women’s equivalent with a 1.87m leap as she continues her gradual improvement since attending KSU two season ago.Despite his winning opening, Bryan is far from happy. A bothersome knee that has plagued him for years now continues to hamper his progress, a big concern since he plans to represent Jamaica at the Olympic Games in Rio this summer.”That’s the main goal,” said a frustrated Bryan. “I was supposed to go to the World Championships last year, but I had to pull out because of the same knee issue. But I am trying to get it sorted out as soon as possible.”Bryan has been struggling with a bad knee since his days in high school. He has had it treated, but nothing seems to be able help him put the injury behind him. It has now become a nuisance.”I am having this problem for too long and it’s holding me back. I went 2.28m last year and couldn’t get back there, so I was pretty frustrated and disappointed,” he said.The knee has not allowed him to jump much in practice this off-season, and he believes it affected him on Friday.”I feel it was a pretty good performance because I haven’t jumped that much in practice, so my timing was off,” he said. “When I got to 2.25m, my knee was bothering me a little, but I pushed through.”Bryan said that he aims to break 2.30m this season, which should help him earn a spot on the national team to Rio, and as such, he plans to undergo a procedure in a couple of months that he hopes will alleviate the knee problem that has been preventing him from soaring to new heights.last_img read more

Injuries galore in Seahawks’ Thursday night victory

first_imgRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie Thompson Players don’t like Thursday night football, and the injuries that hit the Seahawks and Cardinals are examples of why.It’s just too difficult, they say, to play that soon after Sunday.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smog“It’s kind of hard to get back out there and recover,” Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett said. “That’s why you see so many injuries on Thursday night.

Humphries and the team’s leading tackler, safety Tyvon Branch. Both could be headed for injured reserve, Arizona coach Bruce Arians said.Asked if Thursday night football is unsafe, Seattle coach Pete Carroll said “It’s a challenge.”“It’s a real challenge for our players,” he said. “Our guys did it and their guys did it. It’s a great event for everyone, but it’s very difficult and very challenging.”But should it be changed?“I don’t want to pay anything so I’m not going to comment on anything,” Carroll said.ADVERTISEMENT Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set The game featured loads of penalties and sluggish play with one of amazing escape by Russell Wilson in a 54-yard pass to Doug Baldwin.“He made a play that will probably go down in history,” Arizona inside linebacker Karlos Dansby said.The Cardinals sacked Wilson a season-high five times but couldn’t get him down this time.Retreating, spinning, slipping out of serious trouble, Wilson was on his heels when he threw to Baldwin.Defender Antoine Bethea went up to try to intercept, then slipped. Baldwin caught it and raced downfield to the Cardinals 2-yard line, setting up Wilson’s second touchdown pass to Jimmy Graham.The Seahawks (6-3) bounced back from Sunday’s home loss to Washington to climb within a half-game of the first place Los Angeles Rams in the NFC West. Arizona (4-5) has yet to beat a team that does not have a losing record.Here are some things to consider from Seattle’s Thursday night victory.WINNING IN ARIZONA: As usual, there were plenty of Seahawks fans in the sellout crowd at University of Phoenix Stadium and they watched their team, decked out in electric all-green uniforms, win again in the desert.The Seahawks are 4-0-1 in Arizona since Bruce Arians became the Cardinals’ coach.The only time Seattle didn’t win there was in last season’s 6-6 tie.Oddly enough, Arizona is 3-1 in its last four trips to Seattle. The teams meet again there on Dec. 24.PETERSON’S PROBLEMS: Adrian Peterson, playing four days after carrying a career-high 37 times for 159 yards in San Francisco, had a tough day.center_img LATEST STORIES Cornerback Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks is helped off the field following the NFL game against the Arizona Cardinals at the University of Phoenix Stadium on November 9, 2017 in Glendale, Arizona.

Jury convicts man for raping teen

first_imgA 12-member jury at the Sexual Offences Court in Georgetown on Wednesday found Trevon Giles guilty on one count of raping a 15-year-old girl on January 14, 2016 in the county of Demerara. For a similarly matter that was allegedly committed some three days later on the same female, the jury foreman announced a not guilty verdict.Both jury verdicts were unanimous and returned after almost two hours of deliberation. The decisions were made after the 12-member jury heard evidence presented by a few witnesses that last several days. Prosecutors Abigail Gibbs and Tiffini Lyken appeared for the State.Sentencing for Giles on the first count was delayed after his attorney, Clyde Forde requested a probation report to be prepared for his client. Forde said after this is prepared, he will offer a plea in mitigation. Giles, meanwhile, had little reaction after being found guilty. In fact, he walked out of court calmly accompanied by several Policemen who escorted him to the prisoner’s holding area.Giles will know his fate on April 26 when a prison term is expected to be handed down by High Court Judge, Justice Jo Ann Barlow. Giles was indicted on two counts of rape of a child under 16. The Sexual Offences Court is a specialist court set aside in the Demerara district to hear cases that are listed in the Sexual Offences Act.last_img read more

AXED: FUNDING FOR DUBLIN/DONEGAL A5 ROAD ‘POSTPONED’

first_imgBREAKING NEWS: The Government has withdrawn funding for a major road upgrade in the North, designed to link Donegal with DublinIt was to have provided €500m towards the cost of the A5 Derry to Aughnacloy road upgrade.It would create a key cross-border business route linking Dublin to the north west. In September, the Department of Transport told the BBC it has already spent €21m on the project.BBC Northern Ireland has just reported that the Stormont executive has confirmed that the Dublin administration has ‘postponed’ further payments.This is a direct contravention of election pledges.Taoiseach Enda Kenny told northern ministers that he was putting a halt on the cash because of cutbacks. However the BBC said the decision was a ‘postponement’ rather than an axed on funding.Deputy Charlie McConalogue fumed: “Once again Donegal has been shafted despite all the promises that were made.”He went on: “If these reports are true, this is a major blow for Donegal and the North West and would amount to a complete abandonment of firm election commitments from both Fine Gael and the Labour Party.“The previous Government was fully committed to this project and had set aside funding in the four-year National Recovery Plan to have it completed by 2015.  Fine Gael and Labour promised voters in the North West that they would deliver the A5 project if elected to Government.  The Taoiseach Enda Kenny repeated this commitment as recently May during a speech at the Institute of British-Irish studies in UCD.   He quite clearly stated: “The previous government had committed to put money in there and we will honour that commitment.” (Taoiseach Enda Kenny, Institute for British-Irish Studies in UCD, 26th May 2011)“Now it seems the A5 Derry to Aughnacloy road is joining a long list of broken promises from Fine Gael and Labour within their first few months of Government.  People in the North West took their promises in good faith, and they will rightly feel let down and angry at this news today.  This is the single most important infrastructure project for the North West region.  To bring it to a screeching halt would be an extremely ill-advised and short-sighted move. “The previous Government understood the enormous economic and social benefits of this project to the Donegal and the North West region. It should be built and operational  as promised by 2015, ensuring that our region has the same quality of roads network that other parts of the county have achieved in recent years.  I am urging the Government to think twice about making such a damaging decision that will hamper economic recovery in the North West.”AXED: FUNDING FOR DUBLIN/DONEGAL A5 ROAD ‘POSTPONED’ was last modified: November 9th, 2011 by BrendaShare 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)Tags:A5 road axeddonegal dublinlast_img read more
