Some associations think GOA voting process could use some change

first_imgNOT all of the sporting associations who are expected to cast their votes tomorrow believe that the Guyana Olympic Association (GOA) elections process, which provides for candidates to be nominated literally up to the last minute when contesting posts, is the best way to go.With the GOA elections set to take place tomorrow afternoon at the GOA’s new headquarters in Liliendaal, some of the Association heads are surprised that they have not be approached by anyone seeking to be nominated for a post in the GOA executive.“That’s quite surprising that no one has contacted us, because you know there would always be persons who would be lobbying and things like that,” Guyana Boxing Association (GBA) president Steve Ninvalle said yesterday.President of the Athletics Association of Guyana (AAG) Aubrey Hutson, also noted that he has not been approached by any candidate seeking to be nominated.Ivan PersaudNot all of the 23 sporting Associations and Federations expected to participate were contacted yesterday. However, of those that were, they think that it would not be an altogether bad idea for the nominations deadline to be before the elections day.Such a process would allow for the nominees to be vetted.As it stands, any elector could nominate an eligible candidate at the elections, the nomination is then seconded and that candidate is considered among the others when voting begins.“I thought it would have been very nice to know beforehand who and who will be running. At least you get a chance to talk about it in your associations,” commented Guyana Amateur Swimming Association (GASA) president Ivan Persuad, who will be voting at a GOA election for the first time.“In swimming it’s very clear, one week before you have to send in your list of nominees so we can know how many persons are going up for president and so on, which I think is very clear and it gives people time to think about who they want to vote for.” He continued.Persaud did, however, commend the fact that electors cast their votes by secret ballot, which allows each person to vote without having their votes scrutinised and perhaps being discriminated against because of how they voted.As it pertains to this system of “on the floor nominations”, incumbent president K.A. Juman-Yassin said that if any Association so desired to have this system changed they can apply to do so. Yassin said as it is this is the system that he met when he took office and in all the years of elections no one has indicated that they would like it to change.Like the Olympics, elections for the GOA are held every four years. Yassin has been president since 1996 when he took over from now deceased Justice Rudolph Harper.On the issue of nominations, however, Yassin said that candidates have indeed been canvasing and he knows of several candidates seeking elections. He expressed that he preferred not to name the individuals.But for the position of the presidency he maintained that he knew of no one else looking to contest the position, but would however welcome any competition and leave the rest up to the democratic process ingrained in the GOA’s constitution.last_img read more

Dream finally becomes reality for Tegenkamp

first_imgPhoto courtesy Michelle TegenkampAs a high school runner, Matt Tegenkamp first had the dream. In 2005, after his cross country career at the University of Wisconsin had ended, the dream started to become a reality when he began running professionally with Nike.But it wasn’t until this summer when the dream was finally achieved: he was an Olympian.Tegenkamp was one of three Americans to qualify for the 5,000-meter race in Beijing this August, something he has been working toward since he was ina high schooler in Missouri.“The Olympics is kind of the pinnacle of our sport, the highest level that you can get,” Tegenkamp said in a phone interview. “I first realized the dream was attainable in 2001 after my freshman year of college. I had quite a bit of success. It definitely let me know I could get up to a very elite, professional level within running.”But a number of injuries throughout his collegiate career put a damper on things. Among other things, it caused him to miss out on the opportunity to qualify for the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens.But with every setback came support from those close to him, including former UW men’s cross country coach Jerry Schumacher.“The whole point in coming to Wisconsin for me … was because Wisconsin had such a rich tradition in distance running,” Tegenkamp said. “Their coach — he’s not currently the coach there anymore, but he’s still my coach [with Nike] — Jerry Schumacher was a huge motivator. Any time there were any setbacks, it was always, ‘Look at the bigger picture. We’ll get back to where we need to be.’ It was the same way with family. Everyone was really supportive.”Finally fully healthy in 2008, Tegenkamp made the most of his opportunity. At the United .States. Olympic trials, he finished second, securing himself a spot on the team. He had already accomplished the first step — posting a time under 13:21.5 — a year earlier.“It’s a very cutthroat system. A lot of countries do two qualifiers, and then they do a selection for the first spot,” Tegenkamp said. “In the U.S., it’s just the top three qualifiers on that day at that race. So you need to be healthy and definitely on top of your game at that point. Unfortunately, I wasn’t quite on top of my game at the Olympic trials, but I was still lucky enough — I got second, but not by very much.“At that point, it was a huge relief and a huge monkey off my back at that point for making the Olympic team.”Staying focused on the goalOnce Tegenkamp got to Beijing, he made it a priority to avoid any distractions that might detract him from what he went there to do. He joined the other U.S. athletes for the Parade of Nations and opening ceremonies August Aug. 8, but stayed at a training camp outside of the city until his races.Since he didn’t run in the finals until the last day of competition, he missed out on the parties in the Olympic village and didn’t get to hang out with athletes who had already finished their events.But that was fine with him.“It can get a little out of control,” Tegenkamp said.The issue of pollution was also talked about before the games began, with many predicting that Beijing’s smog problem could impact the performance of the athletes. But Tegenkamp never worried about any of that, either.“Going into the games, everybody was asking about how we were going to deal with it, and I just said I was going to worry about things that I could control,” Tegenkamp said. “That included my preparation for racing and all of that. Anything else was out of my hands. I’m glad that that’s the attitude I took, because once we got there, everything was fine.”The humidity, though, was something Tegenkamphe and the other athletes had to deal with, he said. Since Beijing is situated in a bowl, the heat gets trapped by the surrounding mountains, making for very warm conditions.“That was the only thing that was really hard to get used to,” Tegenkamp said. “Training in Madison helped a little bit with that;, being there in the middle of the summer helped the transition.”It wasn’t all work for Tegenkamp during his time in Beijing, however. He and his family also managed to do some sightseeing when everything was all said and done, making it to TienanmenTiananmen Square and the Great Wall.“It just capped off a great two weeks,” he said.Coming up shortTegenkamp had no problem qualifying for the finals when he ran in the first of three heats on Aug. 20. His time of 13:37.36 was the fastest in the heat by less than one second, securing him a spot in the final race three days later.“The prelim went great,” Tegenkamp said. “I was real, real happy and real confident after that race that all the preparation had gone according to plan, and we were in a great spot to compete well at the final.”By the time the finals rolled around, though, it was a different story.He ran a faster time than he had in the qualifying heat — 13:33.13 — but he finished a disappointing 13th out of 15 athletes. Ethiopia’s Kenenisa Bekele won the gold with a time of 12:57.82, which set a new Olympic record.Tegenkamp admitted the pressure of running in an Olympic final sunk in, something he managed to overcome in his earlier heat.“I think going into the final, a little bit of the pressure and the nerves got to me a little bit,” he said. “We knew that it was going to be a very tough race and a very fast race. As a distance runner, the motto is that you have to learn to be uncomfortable for long periods of time, but also be relaxed at the same time. I was not patient at all in my race.”With nearly half the race to go, Tegenkamp just didn’t have it in him anymore. His pace dropped off and he began to fade from the pack.“When the race actually started with 2,000 meters to go, I was already tired and spent,” he said. “It was just a mistake and it was unfortunate that it happened at that point in time. But hopefully it will be something I can use as experience for the next time around.”Best yet to come?With the disappointing finish behind him, Tegenkamp has already been able to look back and take pride in what he accomplished — not only making it to Beijing, but giving himself a chance to win a gold medal.“As an athlete, it’s something that we put ourselves in position to make the most important races of the year. That’s what we want to do,” Tegenkamp said. “So making it to the Ggames, it was a great experience. It will be something that will be amazing to look back on way down the road in the future and say ‘I was a part of that.’”The 26-year-old Tegenkamp says he’s not done yet. He’ll continue to run professionally for Nike, with many of his races taking place in Europe.And while it may be four years down the road, the 2012 games in London are already in sight for the former Badger. As crazy as it might sound, he thinks he’ll be at the peak of his career at 30 years old by that point.“I’m definitely looking at 2012,” he said. “That will be my best Olympic shot. That will be when I’m in the prime of my running at that point in time. So we’re going to take a look at how things went this year and over the past couple of years. There’s going to be some changes made within training, and hopefully it will all work out for the best and I’ll be in a better position in 2012 than I was here.”last_img read more

Why Cranes will need to stay calm in face of Comoros

first_imgThey key victory that put Uganda in qualification position. Uganda’s defender Denis Iguma (R) evades Botswana’s midfielder Lebogang Ditsile during the AFCON 2017 qualifying match on June 4, 2016. AFP PHOTO Sunday September 4Mandela Stadium, NambooleUganda vs Comoros 5pmThe nation expects. The stage is set. Will Cranes finally deliver in Africa Cup of Nations qualifying on Sunday when they take on Comoros?Cranes coach Micho Milutin Sredejovic believes Uganda can finally make it, but like many long-suffering fans, knows we have been here before. Uganda’s football history since 1978 is full of near misses, most recently against Kenya in 2011 and against Zambia in 2013.The last two games tell why Micho is calling for cool heads, on and off the pitch. Exactly like it is now, all Cranes needed against Kenya was a win, while against Zambia they needed not only a win, but one more goal. Both did not come and Chipolopolo advanced 9-8 on penalties.In the years before, there were even more painful close shaves, failing to beat Nigeria after missing a late penalty in Nakivubo in 1993 and a rude welcome to Mandela Stadium Namboole where Rwanda defeated Uganda 1-0 in 2003.“We need to remain focused and avoid being complacent so that we can re-write Uganda’s AFCON history and make it back to the competition after the last appearance in 1978,” Micho warned after excitement reached a high after Cranes’ stunning win in Botswana in June.Micho told FUFA.co.ug, ” This is one game like many others we have played. We shall need calm heads but with the value attached to it, we need to finish every move and chance created. I also call upon the fans to cheer up the team at all times.” Cranes’ taskAll Uganda has to do is beat Comoros to advance to their first Nations Cup final since 1978. If Cranes win their final game, they will be one of the two best second placed teams, that will make it to Gabon.They set themselves up in this position by stunning Botswana 2-1 in June. 13 group winners and best two runners-up from 11 four-team groups qualify for 2017 Cup of Nations with hosts Gaboncenter_img Table of the 2nd best teamsOnly four other teams, CAR, Tunisia, Mali (already qualified) and Benin can end up with 13 points, but if CAR and Tunisia get the 13 points, they will deny their 2nd placed teams the chance, as that will leave them at 10 and 12 points respectively.Mali and Benin play each other in the final match, so even if both get 13 points, one will be group leader – leaving Uganda as the second team at 13.Teams that have qualified for 2017 Africa Cup of Nations  (full fixtures page 2)Guinea-Bissau (Group E winners)Morocco (Group F winners)Egypt (Group G winners)Ghana (Group H winners)Algeria (Group J winners)Senegal (Group K winners)Zimbabwe (Group L winners)Cameroon (Group M winners)Mali (Group C  winners or runners-up)Groups in contention for two second best qualification placesGroup A  Liberia      5 3 1 1 10 4 10Tunisia      5 3 1 1 12 2 10Togo          5 2 2 1  6  4  8Djibouti     5 0 0 5  1 19 0Final gamesTunisia vs LiberiaTogo vs DjiboutiGroup BDR Congo     5 4 0 1 12 5 12C.A.R.           5 3 1 1 8  7   10Angola          5 1 1 3 6  7   4Madagascar 5 0 2 3 4 11 2Final gameDR Congs vs CARGroup CMali            5 4 1 0 8 1 13Benin         5 3 2 0 10 5 11S.Sudan     5 1 0 4 3 11 3E.Guinea   5 0 1 4 2 6 1Final gamesMali vs BeninGroup DB.

‘Hard Work for fhe Hammer’

first_imgFrom the outset we knew that this year’s Armon Gilliam “Hardwork” Basketball camp was going to be different…special if you will. And it was. For more than 80 years, kids enjoyed and endured a two day basketball session of skills, drills, games, exercise and most importantly education and life skills lessons that will take them far beyond the basketball court.It began with the coming together of some of the area’s all time greatest players all of whom felt the loss of Armon Gilliam. Some played with him, some against him and some simply admired him and his great career.This year’s camp staff included camp director and former Connie Hawkins League superstar Warren Wilson Jr., Slippery Rock All American and NBA star Myron Brown, former Hawkins League All-Star and NBA prospect and member of the Sky Walker Club Eugene Wilson, coach O.J., and coaches Alex, Anthony, and Mike. It is because of the commitment and dedication to Armon and the hardwork philosophy that make the camp successful.Special thanks go out to sponsors the Savoy Restaurant, Chuck Sanders Charities, Penn Ave McDonalds, the Plum McDonalds, Dave Smith Chevrolet, Vocelli Pizza, Penn Hills Eat N’ Park, Champion Enterprises, Five Starr Corporation, and most especially Highmark Corporation and the Penn Hills YMCA and director Jay Hope for the dedication of their faculty, their amazing staff and the “Y” members for sharing time with us.THE HAMMER: THE LEGACY CONTINUES!!!!!last_img read more

A STATEMENT FROM THE STRONACH GROUP

first_imgA STATEMENT FROM THE STRONACH GROUPThis afternoon, Emtech, a three-year-old colt, was humanely euthanized on the track after the eighth race on Saturday, September 28th at Santa Anita Park.  After breaking down on the track, Emtech was evaluated immediately by a team of on-track veterinarians, led by Santa Anita Park veterinarian Dr. Dana Stead. Dr. Stead observed that Emtech had two broken front forelimbs and made the decision to humanely euthanize the horse.Jockey Mario Gutierrez was uninjured.“As is protocol at Santa Anita, we will open an immediate review into what factors could have contributed to Emtech’s injury,” said Dr. Dionne Benson, Chief Veterinarian for The Stronach Group.  “Santa Anita will work closely with the California Horse Racing Board and will continue to brief our stakeholders and all of our constituents, including the public, as more facts come in.  Emtech will undergo a necropsy at the University of California – Davis’ School of Veterinary Medicine, as is mandatory for all on-track accidents.  The accident and the necropsy report will be reviewed by a team to learn what, if anything, could have been done to have prevented the accident.”The thoughts of the management and staff of The Stronach Group and Santa Anita go out to everyone who cared for Emtech since he was claimed last August 8th at Del Mar.Emtech had two wins – including his previous run at Los Alamitos — in five career starts. He had a second and third-place finish, as well.The Stronach Group and Santa Anita safety measures put horse and rider safety above all else.  There is an expected level of safety and accountability that is required to participate at a Stronach Group racetrack.  If anything less is found which could have contributed to this incident, it will be addressed immediately.  Santa Anita and The Stronach Group remain committed to leading transformative change in this traditional sport.last_img read more
