FORMER Jamaican sprinter and triple-double Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt said he was heartened to see the kind of support that turned out for the inauguration of the National Stadium in Tokyo ahead of the Olympic games to be held there and what it meant for the 2020 showpiece multi-sport event.“I know that Tokyo is going to be exciting, it is going to be extremely big because you can see the number of people in the stadium now,” said Bolt.Bolt ran a lap at the new Olympic Stadium with one of the Olympic rings in his hand, marking the facility’s opening, saying it was an honour to be given the opportunity.“I was happy and excited because I won’t get to compete so the fact that I got to run on the track was an experience in itself and as was said earlier it was wonderful that everybody could come together and compete. It’s for a great cause; it’s to show the world that we need to unite as one. So I was very honoured and very happy,” said Bolt.The lap, done at a jog with other former Olympians carrying rings as well, reminded Bolt that coming out of retirement was not on.“I won’t be competing. No. I’m actually in pain right now from the little run I just did,” he said.Still, Bolt is an excited man because these Olympics will mark the first he has attended as a fan.“I will be here watching them (Jamaican team to the Olympics) and cheering them on. This will be my first Olympics where I’m just here to watch, so I’m gonna really try to see everything and just try to enjoy it.” (Sportsmax) read more
Facebook Twitter Google+ CHESTER, Pa. — Third-seeded Syracuse (11-2, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) defeated second-seeded Duke (11-5, 1-3), 15-14, in the ACC tournament final on Sunday afternoon at PPL Park. Here are three quick observations from SU’s title game triumph.Get the white off RiceKevin Rice was pressed hard by Duke’s defense, but it didn’t matter.The senior attack repeatedly made something out of nothing, as two of his three goals came from seemingly impossible angles almost horizontal to the goal. He carried over his late-game heroics from Friday night into Sunday and led Syracuse with seven points, tallying four goals and three assists.He also remained his distributing self, finding the open man when Duke’s defense clamped down on him. And as Dylan Donahue remained somewhat ineffective, Rice and Randy Staats combined to lead the Orange attack.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textUp and downSyracuse scored three goals with its man-up offense and didn’t allow one any of the four times Duke had a man advantage.When man-up specialist Derek DeJoe came in for the Orange’s first opportunity, he ripped a left-handed shot that hit behind the cage, enciting cheers from the crowd, which shortly realized the ball didn’t go in. But seconds later, DeJoe got it back and from the same spot, found the back of the net, fist-pumping ferociously as he entered a cluster of teammates.In a game that was only decided by a goal, SU’s man-up and man-down units were a deciding factor in the Orange eeking out the championship.X-unfactorBen Williams — who all season has been lauded as Syracuse’s savior — was not his typical self on Sunday.The Orange only won 11-of-32 faceoffs — its worst performance on the season — and Williams was even replaced by backup Cal Paduda multiple times at the X. It forced Syracuse to revert into its defense quicker and Duke was able to push SU’s defense back into its own half when Syracuse has typically done the same to its opponents.

The football representative of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s (BiH’s) national football team and Juventus star Miralem Pjanic has sent a signed jersey to Fahrudin Muminovic who survived the July 1995 shooting in Srebrenica.Pjanic heard a difficult life story of Fahrudin, who as a boy eye witnessed his father’s shooting, and decided to send his jersey.“For my brother Fahrudin, from heart, Miralem Pjanic,” Pjanic wrote.“Thank you, Brother Miralem, for this gift. You made me happy. I am just waiting for a moment to meet you and my dream will be fulfilled,” Muminovic said briefly.To recall, a 7-year-old boy, who was a protected Hague Tribunal Witness for 2 decades, a witness of executions of hundreds of Bosniaks, a miracle of survival, rising from the heap of dead bodies at an execution site in Orahovac (saved by a doctor), near Konjevic Polje, comes out and tell his story for the first time. A very moving, emotional, and heroic feat. Standing in the Hague Tribunal, looking at the killers in their face, returning to the execution site. Here is the story of Fahrudin Muminovic.Fahrudin Muminovic was a protected witness of the Hague Tribunal until recently when he discovered his identity because he needed help.Namely, Fahrudin lives near Konjevic Polje where the conditions for life are more than disastrous, and he is sharing the house with eight other people. All people living with him he considers a family, and memories of war have never disappeared. When he showed up as a quest on FACE TV, he recalled the situation when members of the Serbian Army came to his home for the first time.“Me and my father were in the house, my father told me to give him another bulb to replace the one which does not work. I went to the window to see something and one of the men said that Chetniks are approaching the house. I hid under the bed and my father went to the second room, they found us, took us, tied hands with scarves and drove us into the truck. In one moment, the scarf fell off my hand, and I told my father to put it again but they did not let me, but tightened it strongly. I was terrified, and later, they ordered us to lay down and they started to shoot. One of the doctors saved me and took me to a hospital in Zvornik,” Fahrudin said.Fahrudin and his family are doing agriculture which does not provide them much income. On Facebook, there is an option to donate under the name “Fahrudin Muminovic Fund (Srebrenica execution survivor)”.(Photo: FACE TV) read more
Wellington â€”Â W. Gilmore 16, I. King 15, T. Nance 12, C. Reichenberger 10, C. Phelps 10, A. Snipes 7, T. Pettigrew 3 On the girls side, Wellington improved its record to 10-7 overall with its six point win.â€œThe effort and intensity was good for three quarters, but Mulvane out hustled, out rebounded and won every 50-50 ball in the fourth quarter,â€ said Eric Adams, Wellington head girls basketball coach. â€œWe need to understand how to finish games when leading by 10 plus points in the second half.â€Lauryn Snipes was again the leading scorer with 15 points. Tayland French had 14 and Shayland French 10.The Crusaders led 13-8 at the end of the first quarter and was in front 25-15 at the half. The two teams traded baskets in the third quarter with Mulvane outscoring the Dukes 15-11 in the fourth.The win puts the Dukes at 10-7 for the season and 8-2 over the past 10 games which included an overtime loss to eighth ranked Andale.Wellington hosts 14-3 Wichita Collegiate this Friday night. By Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” The curse of Mulvane has been an issue for Wellington sports teams in years past – especially when post season implications are concerned.But Tuesday night in Mulvane there was none of that for the varsity Wellington basketball teams.Wellington boys overwhelmed Mulvane 71-31 in a tail kicking of mammoth proportions. Wellington girls struggled down the stretch but still won 47-41.In the boys game, Wellington had seven players in double figures. Wesley Gilmore, a junior, led the team with 16 while freshman Ian King had 15.Â â€œWe had a great defensive game, â€œ said Brian Buchanan, Wellington head boys basketball coach. â€œWe went after deflections going in and were successful in doing that.â€This game was over before it really started. Wellington opened with a 20-4 first quarter lead and held a 50-17 advantage at halftime. The Crusaders would then outscore the Wildcats 27-5 in the third quarter to lead 67-22 going into the final stanza.Trevor Nance had a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds as well as six assists.â€œI was really proud with how the boys evenly distributed the ball,â€ Buchanan said. â€œEarly we scored inside. When Mulvane packed it in we then distributed the ball to the outside and had success scoring threes.â€Wellington has now won two straight on the road and is 9-7 overall and 2-4 in the Ark Valley Chisholm Trail League Div. IV. But in this league, there is always a good team on the horizon. Collegiate will come into Wellington Friday night bringing its high voltage offense and consuming defense.â€œThey have been showing no mercy to the opponents, especially with their backcourt pressure,â€ Buchanan said. â€œWe have to be ready.â€ Wellington â€” Snipes 15, T.

Just hours after the formalities were finalised, Coutinho took to his Instagram account to thank everyone at Liverpool for making his time at Anfield a “dream”.He wrote: “Since the moment I arrived in Liverpool, me and my family have been made to feel so welcome and have made so many friends.“On the pitch and off the pitch, we have experienced the beauty of this club and its fans. In turn, I hope I have delivered memories and moments that have brought happiness to the Liverpool supporters.“Moving to Liverpool, I knew the club’s greatness and history but what I did learn during my time was the unique heart and soul of the place. It has its own personality and character.“I leave Liverpool because Barcelona is a dream for me. Liverpool was a dream that I was fortunate enough to realise and I have given five years of my life to it.“A career on the pitch only lasts for so long and to play for Barcelona as well as Liverpool is something I want to experience and enjoy while I am blessed enough to be able to do so.“I hope the supporters understand that choosing to experience something new is not about diminishing their importance to me or the club’s importance. Nothing will ever diminish that in my heart.“I wish Jurgen and the team nothing but joy and success for the rest of this season and beyond. This is an amazing team and they are getting better and better all the time.“There are too many people I want to thank, but I cannot name everyone individually.“To all the amazing club staff who have been part of my life in Liverpool – I will miss you.“To the owners, whom have tried so hard to bring success, and to the football recruitment staff for showing faith in me to bring me here and rewarding me during that journey, and to my incredible teammates, past and present, who have helped me grow and improve as a player and a person, I would like to say thank you to you all.“Anything I have achieved here would not have been possible without you.“And finally, to the most important people of Liverpool – the Liverpool supporters. I can never thank you enough for what you have given me during this time and no matter where I go in the world, for the rest of my life, I will always cherish Liverpool in my heart.
