Bayern stretch Bundesliga lead

first_imgBERLIN (AP):Bayern Munich ground out a 3-1 win at Stuttgart and provisionally opened an eight-point lead to move closer to an unprecedented fourth straight Bundesliga title yesterday.”We need another three wins and a draw to achieve something very special, something no team in Germany ever achieved,” Bayern coach Pep Guardiola said.An own goal from Georg Niedermeier got the defending champions under way in the 31st minute and David Alaba made it 2-0 in the 52nd.Daniel Didavi pulled one back in unorthodox fashion in the 63rd, scooping the ball while on the ground over the helpless Manuel Neuer. Didavi did not have time to get up from his previous attempt.Bayern substitute Douglas Costa sealed it in the 89th with a shot inside the left post.Borussia Dortmund can restore the five-point gap today with a win at Schalke in the Ruhr derby. Five rounds remain after the weekend’s games.”I always watch Bundesliga on Sundays,” Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said. “But I rely on Bayern Munich and not Borussia Dortmund.”last_img read more

Dyke confident of Edwin Allen hat-trick at Penns

first_imgSEVERAL of the country’s top senior and junior athletes will be busy competing at the 122nd staging of the Penn Relays in Franklin Field, Philadelphia, from Thursday to Saturday. Most of these athletes from top high schools and colleges will depart the island today.Top college team, the University of Technology, will be leaving the island this morning through the Norman Manley Airport, while top high school female team Edwin Allen High will depart from the Donald Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay this evening for New York, before driving over to Philadelphia.Several schools, including Kingston College, Holmwood Technical, and Vere Technical, will also be leaving from Montego Bay this afternoon and will head straight to Philadelphia.After winning two titles last year among the girls, head coach of Edwin Allen Michael Dyke is very optimistic.”We are very strong in the 4×100 and 4×800 metres, and despite not running consistently well in the 4×400 metres so far this season, I am confident that the girls can pull it off,” said Dyke.St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS), Holmwood, and Hydel have posted fast times in the event so far.”Edwin Allen is yet to run at full strength all season, but come this weekend, we will be at full strength as we have three members from last year’s winning team, and a member of the team who was injured for the majority of the season is now fully fit,” Dyke advised.Despite his top half-miler Cemore Donald, not competing at Penns this season, Dyke is confident that they will pull it off in the 4×800 metres.”Donald (Cemore) is just in Class Three and we are not taking her this year as we risk not having her in the final year of competition as an athlete can only compete at this meet for four years,” said Dyke.Several years ago, Dyke saw one of his teams being disqualified after one of his athletes was deemed to have competed for more than four years.Meanwhile, George Forbes, competition’s officer of the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA), is warning schools to ensure that all their athletes are ‘legitimate’ to compete at Penns as he does not want any embarrassment. Forbes recently sent letters to the various principals of the schools attending the meet, reminding them of Penn Relays’ eligibility rules.In the letter, he stated two things:1. No athlete can participate at the Penn Relays for more than four years.2. Eligibility is recorded when the athlete first competes. Example: If the student first attended in 2014, misses 2015 and 2016, then this student’s final eligibility is 2017, even if there is a change of school.In closing, Forbes is asking everyone to do their diligence in order not to cause embarrassment to schools or athletes.last_img read more

IOC suggests more Olympic host bidding changes

first_imgThe International Olympic Committee wants to keep considering changes that could result in both the 2024 and 2028 Summer Games awarded in September. An internal letter written by IOC President Thomas Bach’s spokesman suggests further adjustments are needed in the way Olympic hosts are chosen. It references Bach’s statement from last year, saying the “process produces too many losers”. In December, Bach floated the idea of awarding both the 2024 Games, as scheduled, along with the 2028 Games. Los Angeles and Paris are the remaining candidates from a list that began with five cities. Budapest, Hungary, said this week it was withdrawing. The letter, obtained yesterday by the Associated Press (AP), was first reported by Inside The Games. In an interview last week with the AP, Bach said continued speculation about awarding two Olympics at the IOC’s meeting in September “may give us some ideas”. “This procedure as it is … our political environment in such a fragile world just produces too many losers,” Bach said last Saturday. The letter echoed that phrasing, saying “the political situation in our fragile world requires us to further adjust the candidature procedure”. The IOC acknowledged Budapest’s withdrawal, which will be made official by Hungary’s Olympic committee. “It is clear that a promising Olympic Games candidature has been used to promote a broader domestic political agenda beyond the Olympic Games and was overtaken by local politics,” said the letter, written by Bach’s spokesman, Mark Adams. Adams defended Bach’s ‘Agenda 2020’, the core of which was to streamline the Olympics and make bidding more attractive and less expensive for cities. “All three candidates have made it clear that their candidatures would not have taken place without Olympic Agenda 2020,” Adams wrote. Still, the dwindling of the candidate pool raised questions about whether Agenda 2020 was really working. The point of the letter was that Agenda 2020 was only the start and more reforms are needed. If those reforms involve awarding the next two Summer Games this year, it will be a hard sell for both Paris and Los Angeles, each having insisted its proposals are good for only 2024. Replicating plans for 2028 would be possible but would also take significant retooling since many of the contracts in place for development and stadium use are for only the 2024 Olympics.

ISAJ boss says Ja will soon match regional rivals

first_imgAmateur Swimming Association of Jamaica (ASAJ) president, Handel Lamey, feels the country’s performance at the recently concluded Carifta Swimming Championships will see them begin to keep pace with their higher ranked regional rivals, in the near future.

I think we need a national director that will now direct a nationalprogramme that will focusnot only the junior swimmers,but senior swimmers,” hecontinued.”If we had the national programme, they could fall within that programme right away,” he assured.
