Clarke harbours Ja coaching ambitions

first_imgBEIJING, China:Jamaican quarter-mile standout Davian Clarke, now a coach with the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) and the Phillipine Athletics Track and Field Association (PATAFA), says he is hoping to one day work with Jamaican quarter-milers and aid the development of the event in the island.Clarke is known as one of the island’s best quarter-milers, particularly in the 4x400m relay, represented Jamaica at three Olympic Games, winning a relay bronze in 1996. Clarke is a three-time silver medallist and five-time bronze medallist at the IAAF World Indoor and Outdoor Championships.The 39-year-old who is an assistant coach at the University of Texas at El Paso with responsibility for the sprints, hurdles and relays is in Beijing for the IAAF World Championships where he is preparing Filipino 400m hurdler Eric Cray for competition.Clarke says he has enjoyed his coaching experience so far, but is also looking forward to the opportunity to leave his mark on his countrymen.”Coaching in the Philippines has been a good experience for me. I have a guy running the 400m hurdles, they approached me last year and said that they wanted me to help him to get to the next level, and so the goal was just to get him to qualify to the Olympics and the World Championships,” said Clarke. “He ran 49.12 and set a new record so everyone is pleased, and we hope he can make the finals here at the World Championships.””I knew I always wanted to coach but you have to get the opportunity so I was preparing myself for this by doing other things. I volunteered for a while at Auburn University and then coached there for a while, so I’ve been doing this for 15 years,” said Clarke who holds Level One certification from the United States of America Track and Field Association and is also a certified weightlifting coach.Nonetheless, Clarke says he knows he has to wait his time to achieve his ambitions of coaching the Jamaican team at major championships.”Jamaica has many people with a lot more technical skills than me and greater coaches who have been coaching for years. I am young so I have to do my time just like anything else. Jamaica is a top level team so you have to have a lot of experience to get there,” said Clarke.He is also hoping to add more Jamaicans to the quarter-mile programme at UTEP, which of course boasts World Champion Bert Cameron and Blessing Okagbare among its graduates.last_img read more

Foster’s Fairplay | 200m clash took centre stage

first_imgThis week, Foster’s Fairplay is trapped in a reflective mode, looking at the sporting achievements that commanded most attention during the year past. This columnist does not claim, as was the case in formative years, to have a keen eye on all the games that people play in this talent-blessed country. There is no intention to ignore or discriminate against performances that are worthy of recognition and mention. It is simply a matter of where the interest is most compelling. As such, the spotlight will be on cricket, netball and, of course, track and field. At the Rio Olympics, the main act was whether the already-legendary Usain Bolt would complete the unprecedented treble of triple gold medals in the sprinting events in what was to be his fourth visit to the accepted Greatest Show on Earth. He had global exposure at this level, starting with Athens 2004, but the road to fame and fortune came with Beijing (2008) and London (2012). Side acts would include sprinting queen Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce attempting her own triple, having taken gold in the 100m at the two previous stagings. As great an achievement that both would be, the clash between Elaine Thompson and Dafne Schippers over 200m took centre stage in this corner. Despite outstanding times (10.92 and 10.84) in the shorter sprint as the Beijing World Championships approached in the previous year, Thompson was denied the chance to flex her muscles and match strides with the other leading contenders, including Fraser-Pryce and the Dutchwoman. It was publicly felt, with much disgust, that it was a move by Thompson’s handlers to keep her away from her Jamaican teammate, who eventually won. Foster’s Fairplay held the view that her proven visionary MVP coach had ideas of a 21.6 clocking in the 200m, thought by many to be highly improbable. What was also mentioned as part of the agenda, since the apparent plan was for her to compete in a single individual event, was this: Why get only a gold and a silver in the 100m and not two gold medals, as a Thompson win over the longer race was envisaged. She did in fact achieve the expected time, but was beaten to the line by the rampaging Schippers. SPORTING HIGHLIGHT All that intrigue gave rise to the anticipation of Rio gold, as anyone close to the sport would know that coach Stephen Francis would engineer some of his magic to have her better her chief rival, who had taken the Beijing title. That win was, for this columnist, the track and field highlight of 2016. As mentioned in an earlier column, Jamaica’s cricket seems to be poised on a pleasant path. This is in reference to some emerging talent in the batting department. As someone who has witnessed talent come and go over the last 60 years, this columnist is extremely gratified at this development. Opener John Campbell and another bright prospect in Brandon King appear destined for transition to the international level. However, an appetite for bigger scores must be cultivated and maintained. Given his long-standing desire to give something back to the game that made him famous, it is suggested by Foster’s Fairplay that someone like the retired former Jamaican and West Indies stroke player, the classy Lawrence Rowe, be consulted along these lines. It is an avenue worthy of consideration in order to enhance the abilities of the nation’s batsmen. Jamaica’s netballers, the Sunshine Girls, bouncing back from sad tales of a wretched New Zealand tour, provided another high point of the year. More could be said on the negative side, but savouring an outstanding 2-1 away series victory against England’s Roses is that on which focus is placed. It warmed the hearts of the fans who were justified in thinking that the performances up to then were not worth the energy and enthusiasm that were afforded them. There were other sports, although dear to the hearts of our people, that have escaped mention. The administrators know why. This is a call to the stakeholders to tend to the wounds post-haste, and avoid permanent scars that will be a discredit to the efforts that have been expended. Jamaica needs to shine on all sporting fronts. Email : lauriefoster 2012@gmail.comlast_img read more

Agri Minister needs to do what is right

first_imgDear Editor,The Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU), we are sure, like many Guyanese were surprised when they read the April 19, 2018 in sections of the media and learnt that Agriculture Minister Noel Holder said he was searching for persons to name to the Board of Directors of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo). One may have had to read this article, twice, thrice and even more to confirm that their eyes were being honest. For us, this has to be probably the most interesting about-turn for the Agriculture Minister who proclaimed, just weeks ago, that GuySuCo was no longer on his table. Interestingly, the Minister offered no explanation for the change-of-heart or mind. Maybe he is on autopilot or forgot what he said.Nevertheless, whatever the case may be, this is another sad turn in the confusion that has beset the sugar industry in recent weeks. The Minister’s nominees would be interesting, especially in view of the ‘differences’ in the Administration that has been reported in the media. Now, more than ever, there is a strong need for capable, committed and motivated leadership of the sugar industry. We can no longer continue to inflict blunder after blunder as we have seen in the last two years.The industry is capable of success, as we have consistently held and from what, we believe, is driving the direction being laid out by the current leadership of the Corporation. We should not lose this opportunity for the renewed sense of hope to be wasted by the appointment of a Board which may have dissimilar intents and views. The GAWU urges the Minister to be bold and to do what is right, in the interest of all Guyanese now and in the future.Yours faithfully,Seepaul NarineGeneral SecretaryGAWUlast_img read more

Martin Keown likens Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Arsenal great

first_imgMartin Keown has compared Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to club legend Thierry Henry after the Gabon forward bagged a brace in the Gunners’ 4-2 Europa League victory over Vorskla Poltava on Thursday.It was a far from perfect performance from Unai Emery’s men who have still yet to keep a clean sheet this season. gameday cracker Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT However, Aubameyang’s display was a shining light on an otherwise average Arsenal display.Aubameyang, who sports the iconic no.14 jersey that was worn by Henry for so many years, had a moment in the first-half similar to his French predecessor when he picked the ball up on the left, cut inside before nonchalantly curling the ball onto the base of the post.Striking the post was not what Aubameyang was intending but it was enough for Keown to liken him to Arsenal’s record goalscorer.“I really liked that from Aubameyang,” the former Arsenal defender told BT Sport. “The way he drifted in and curls the ball with his right foot, it reminded me of Henry and that’s a massive compliment. REVEALED Keown played alongside Henry at Arsenal including in their famous ‘Invincibles’ season England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? “There’s a kind of swagger about him and maybe now he will start to believe in himself.‘I think it’s important for Arsenal to have a player like him, who has that blistering pace and movement. He is following greats like Henry and [Ian] Wright.“He’s been a bit of a slow burner but he is getting his confidence again and there’s a certain kind of arrogance about him now and I believe he has got the talent.”Fellow BT Sport pundit agreed with Keown and called on Emery to carry on with a system that allocates both Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, who played no part in the Europa League opener. 3 Latest Arsenal FC News silverware However, the pair have played together in some Premier League matches.“If they can get Aubameyang and Lacazette together then Arsenal have got some real goal power there,” he said.“I think Emery has got to get Aubameyang and Lacazette on the field together.

ARRANMORE TO HOLD MEETING OVER GOVERNMENT TAXES

first_imgAs opposition to the governments household tax which it introduced at the beginning of this month grows, more communities are organising in protest against the tax and other charges such as the planned septic tank and water charges.The latest community to see some of its members plan a public meeting against the charges is on the island of Arranmore off the west coast of County Donegal.Following on from numerous other public meetings which have been held across County Donegal in opposition to the governments household, septic tank and water charges, a number of island residents including Jerry Early and Hugh Rodgers have decided to hold a public meeting on the island on Saturday 21st January to inform other islanders of the impending taxes and how they can protest against the governments plans. They also will have speakers at the event including independent TD Thomas Pringle and Micheál Cholm Mac GiollaEasbuig, spokesperson from the ‘Can’t Pay! Won’t Pay!’ campaign which is supporting the island meeting.Giving his reasons for holding the meeting on Arranmore, islander Jerry Early explained how he had discussed the issue with other people from the island which prompted him to take action.“It was clear that speaking to various other people who live on the island that there was widespread anger and opposition to the household tax and the other planned charges” Mr Early said. “Seeing that there were communities organising all across County Donegal we thought that it was time we organised ourselves also on the island to speak out against these unfair taxes which the government plan to impose upon us.“The thinking of a lot of people on the island who I have discussed the matter with is that the household, septic tank and water charges are grossly unfair and many feel that it is no more than a cover for the governments real plan of getting the ordinary people to pay off the debts amassed by reckless bankers and other corrupt individuals, and the people just will not, and in my opinion should not, stand for it. “The government has allowed many decisions to be made in the past which have massively impacted our community causing unemployment and emigration, such as the fishing quotas and bans and we had no say in the matter. We could not fight the the fishing bans but we can fight this.”Saying how the taxes would have a huge effect on island households, Mr Early stated “These taxes and charges will hammer already struggling families on our island, as I’m sure they will across the country. The household charge of €100 is a lot of money to a family who already have trouble putting food on the table. These are issues which many people on the island feel sore about and this is why we have decided to hold this public meeting so that the community can air their views.“This meeting is community based and not in any way aligned to any political party. It is open to all so I hope everyone on the island does their best to attend, for if we stand together as a community we will have a better chance of opposing these unfair taxes.”The Arranmore meeting will be held on Saturday 21st January at 8pm in the Factory Hall and all are welcome to attend.
