Campbell-Brown eyes big 2016

first_imgQUEEN’S, New York: LIKE fine wine, Jamaican female sprinter Veronica Campbell-Brown feels like she’ll get better with age. As a consequence, Campbell-Brown – one of the greatest female sprinters of all time with 17 Olympic and World Championships medals – aims to run her best yet in the upcoming year. Campbell-Brown’s personal bests are 10.76 seconds for the 100 metres when winning World Championships gold in 2011; and 21.74 for the 200m when winning gold at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. “Right now, I’m having fun and ensuring that I maximise my potential because I still feel like I can run faster. I really feel like I’ve not run my fastest yet, so I’m holding on to the hope that I will run faster, and I’m feeling that my ending will be better than my beginning,” Campbell-Brown told The Sunday Gleaner in an interview in New York. The 33-year-old flew up to the Big Apple, where she was presented with the Children of Jamaica Outreach (COJO) Humanitarian Award at its yearly function last night at the JFK Hilton Hotel in Queen’s. The former Vere Technical standout finished this season on a high by winning the 200m bronze plus a sprint relay gold medal at the IAAF World Championships last summer. For improvements, she says that health is a prerequisite. “With training, my objective is to stay healthy and hit all my workloads properly.” She has won all but one of the Olympic and World Championships 100-200 medals – the elusive Olympic 100m gold. “That 100 metres, right,” she answered with a broad smile when asked how much that medal was fuelling her desire. “I try not to focus on one event. I just focus on me. I feel like if I can get everything right, make sure I get my body to respond when I want it to, then anything is possible,” said Campbell-Brown. “If I’m able to win gold in the 100 metres, then that would be great. If I don’t by the time I retire, then I don’t think it’s my destiny. So I just have to focus on training, on preparation, on execution and just see what happens. “I think it would be the icing on the cake. I’m very satisfied with all that I’ve achieved, but that does not mean that I’m not willing to earn more. I still want to achieve everything that God has for me, but so far, I think I’ve been blessed.” With the Olympics next year in Rio, Brazil, she noted her ambitions for a prized finish and clocking. “I normally tend to think big, especially where track and field is concerned. So I try not to underestimate myself. My PR is 10.7. Sometimes I tend to believe I can go 10.6, you never know, sometimes 10.5. It’s just a matter of getting everything together. “If I should look back at my 100 metres, I don’t think I’ve ever run one 100 metres and can say everything was fine. I still have not hit that near-perfect 100 metres,” she observed. “I don’t think us human beings can be perfect. We can work for perfection, but it’s hard to achieve. But I feel like I’ve a lot of room to improve.” She added: “For the 200 metres, I feel like I can go 21.6. You never know. The sky’s the limit. “I’ve to think further than I really want or I may never achieve it.” STAYING HEALTHY PRIZED FINISHlast_img read more

Big guns line up for Corporate Area meet

first_imgWith Calabar expected to finally roll out their big guns this season, action will be at fever-pitch levels for the third meet in the 2017 Digicel Grand Prix Athletics Championships, the Anthrick Corporate Area Development Meet. The track and field classic takes place at the UWI-Usain Bolt Track tomorrow, beginning at 9 a.m. “It promises to be a cracker,” said Ricardo ‘Ricky’ Martin, chairman of the organising committee for the Anthrick meet, which essentially previews the top boys’ teams for Champs. Calabar High, which has won Boys’ Champs for the past five years, has not been parading its big stars this season in numbers, but Martin says the attractive prizes on offer in the cash-rich 2017 Digicel Grand Prix Athletics Championships are proving insatiable. “What I’ve heard from the camps within the Corporate Area – KC, JC, Calabar, Wolmer’s, Excelsior, and on the girls side – Immaculate, Queen’s, Excelsior High and Camperdown – they’re fielding their best teams,” he informed. “It’s going to be a cracker. I’ve seen Calabar’s entries and all the big names are there.” That includes Christopher Taylor, the World Youth 400m champion who has been missing in action all season, along with Dejour Russell, last season’s Champion Boy, plus many others. They are expected to compete in any of three Grand Prix events, from 100m to 400m, which will also include their big rival Kingston College’s biggest star, 100m and 200m sprinter Jhevaughn Matherson. The full slate of Grand Prix Championship events are the 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 4x400m, long, jump, high jump and discus for Classes One and Two athletes. The top two from each Grand Prix Championship event will qualify for the finals, the G.C. Foster Classics, that will take place at the National Stadium on March 11. However, each athlete can run only one individual event at the finals. Kingston College has been throwing in some strong performances all round and other big clashes between the schools should come in the Class Two 800m, where KC’s Ugandan import, Arymanya Rogers, is expected to be tested by Calabar’s Kevroy Venson and Kimar Farquharson, the only man to beat him this season. Martin, a long-time track and field official, expects a changing of the guard in the girls’ competition “On the girls’ side, we’ll see a new champion. Wolmer’s won for the past three years and Excelsior, they’re doing very, very well. David Riley (Excelsior’s head coach) and his charges, they are doing very well also. Immaculate, with Mr Forde (Franz), is one to watch,” he observed. UPCOMING CLASSICSlast_img read more

NEB approves Woodside Energy LNG export licence

first_imgIts purpose is to regulate pipelines, energy development and trade in the Canadian public interest. The proposed natural gas liquefaction terminal is slated to be constructed just north of Prince Rupert.The issuance of this licence is subject to the approval of the Governor in Council.“When evaluating natural gas and LNG export licence applications, the board considers if the quantity of gas proposed to be exported is surplus to Canadian requirements, taking into account trends in the discovery of gas in Canada,” Communications Officer Katherine Murphy writes. “When doing so, we recognize that Canadian natural gas requirements are met in the context of free trade within a North American energy market.”- Advertisement -In making its decision, the board notes that the LNG export licence applications submitted to the NEB in regard to LNG ventures “represent a significant volume of LNG exports from Canada,” however “the board believes that not all LNG export licences issued by the board will be used or used to their full allowance,” and therefore “evaluates each application based on its own merit.”“We have determined that the quantity of gas proposed to be exported by Woodside Energy is surplus to Canadian needs,” Murphy explains. “The board is satisfied that the gas resource base in Canada, as well as North America overall, is large and can accommodate reasonably foreseeable Canadian demand, the natural gas exports proposed in this application, and a plausible potential increase in demand.”The National Energy Board is an independent federal regulator of several parts of Canada’s energy industry.Advertisementlast_img read more

Exclusive – Cech would be a fantastic signing for Arsenal, claims ex-Chelsea star

first_imgSigning Petr Cech from Chelsea would represent an excellent piece of business for Arsenal, believes former Blues goalkeeper Mark Bosnich.After a decade as their No.1, the Czech star is reportedly unhappy at having to make do with a spot on the bench and the odd cup game in west London, after being displaced by brilliant Belgian shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois.Rumours are circulating the Gunners are willing to offer £7million for the 32-year-old and Bosnich believes it would represent a major coup should Arsene Wenger land a player of such quality.“Petr Cech has been one of the greatest goalkeepers in Premier League history and he’s a winner as well,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast. “I think it would be a fantastic signing for Arsenal.“From a Chelsea point of view it’s very difficult because he’s been such a great servant. He didn’t particularly do anything wrong last year to warrant losing his place at the start of this season. When a player has been that good a servant for you over all those years and, bearing in mind Chelsea’s position, it would be very difficult to stop him leaving to one of your great rivals.“If the points difference was much closer between them, and Arsenal were showing signs they could go on and win the title, I definitely don’t think they would sell him. In this situation though, I think they would.”But Bosnich has insisted Wojciech Szczesny, Arsenal’s current first choice between the sticks, shouldn’t fret about losing his position immediately if Cech arrives at the Emirates.“Put it this way, it will either be the making or the breaking of him. As a player, when we look back we think maybe we played our best when we did have competition. At the time you think that when someone comes in for your position, ‘did you have to do that’, but it depends on his [Wojciech Szczesny’s] trust in the manager.“Does he really trust his manager to give them both a fair crack? If he does he should accept it but it’s easier said than done. He just has to make sure he performs week in and week out.“Even if Cech comes he will still stay in the side unless he’s having a bad time. [He needs to] keep on his toes, that’s the best thing to do.“The last thing he needs to do is lose the plot and say he wants to go here and he wants to go there because, with someone like Cech behind him, Wenger will probably say, ‘if that’s the way you feel then you can go’.”last_img read more

Discovery a plus for Bush and anti-abortion allies

first_imgWASHINGTON – A breakthrough in stem-cell research could give President Bush and his anti-abortion allies a political I-told-you-so in a debate Democrats have long been planning to use in next year’s elections. Bush’s twin vetoes of bills to put taxpayer dollars behind embryonic stem-cell research, Democrats said, showed that he would let ideology block progress in finding cures to diseases that afflict millions of people. Bush insisted that medical advances could be made without destroying embryos. On Tuesday, two teams of scientists on different continents reported advances in research that might prove him right, giving his administration a dose of vindication in an otherwise grim last year of office. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat KingsIn the journals Science and Cell, the scientists reported that they had coaxed regular human cells into mimicking the disease-fighting potential of embryonic stem cells – without destroying budding human life. Debate over, according to White House officials. “This is evidence … that we can get the good results we want from science without cutting corners on ethics,” said Karl Zinsmeister, Bush’s domestic-policy adviser. “Let’s not set up a false choice between, on the one hand, progress and, on the other hand, ethics.” Stem cells extracted from embryos a few days old can morph into any type of tissue and are widely considered to hold the greatest promise of treatments and cures for cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and other ailments. But extracting the stem cells destroys the embryo. Bush and his allies consider that crossing an ethical line that taxpayers should not be forced to finance. Proponents of the process say public money would only be used on embryos that would be discarded anyway under the vetoed legislation. And they say the scientific breakthroughs reported Tuesday change nothing about the debate. All types of stem-cell research should be promoted with federal funding, proponents say. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

JASON PROVES HE’S A KNOCKOUT – AGAIN!

first_imgA delighted Jason last night after his latest win.Jason Quigley is making a habit out of getting the business done early!The Ballybofey man was in action again last night in California and stopped his latest opponent in just the second round with another TKO.That’s five wins on the trot for Jason with none of his fights going the distance. Last night at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California, the middleweight stopped opponent Tolutomi Agunbiade after a minute and forty one seconds into just the second round.The 35 year old Texan had a pro record of four fights which included two defeats.Quigley didn’t knock down the Texan but a serious of crunching body shots from the Donegal man left the referee no option but to jump in and stop the bout.Quigley is building up great experience – his latest fight taking place just two weeks after his fourth pro victory.    JASON PROVES HE’S A KNOCKOUT – AGAIN! was last modified: March 21st, 2015 by StephenShare 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:boxingCaliforniaJason Quigleylast_img read more
