Bolt Unsure About 2017

first_imgAs can be expected, the incomparable Usain Bolt is looking forward to the Olympic Games next year in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The picture isn’t so clear when it comes to the 2017 World Championships in London. According to a report carried in the November issue of Track and Field News, Bolt will make his mind up about competing in 2017 after Rio. According to Track and Field News, Bolt is contemplating advice from coach Glen Mills. “After Rio, as I said, my sponsors want me to go one more year,” he recounted, “but my coach said: “Listen to me, ‘if you’re not going to be serious about going to the World Championships in London, then I shouldn’t go’.” Bolt, who has won two Olympic sprint doubles and seven individual World Championship gold medals, explained: “So it’s all about how I feel after Rio, if I can really put my body through one more season.” This year, he suffered through a restrictive back injury. Treatment in Germany helped him to recover just in time to defend his World titles in Beijing, China. Olympics outlook bright His outlook on the Rio Olympics was much brighter. “As long as I don’t get injured next season, it’s going to be great,” he said just after winning the 200 metres in a world-leading time of 19.55 seconds in Beijing. The interview appeared in the ‘Last Lap’ section of November’s issue of Track and Field News. Sprinting is a young man’s game, but there are instances of high performance at a relatively advanced age. Thirty-year-old American Carl Lewis won his third World 100 metres title in 1991 in world record time. Linford Christie of Britain took the Olympic gold medal a year later at 32 years old and confirmed his superiority with a World Championship win in 1993 at 33. Bolt will celebrate his 31st birthday just after the 2017 World Championships. A win there in the 100 metres would break his tie for the most wins in that event with Lewis, who won in 1983, 1987 and 1991 when the Worlds were staged every four years. The Jamaican already has the most wins in the 200m with success in 2009, 2011, 2013, and 2015. By comparison, Calvin Smith and Michael Johnson of the United States both won the event on two occasions each, with no one else taking gold in the curved sprint more than once.last_img read more

Senior Flyers trip to Fort Nelson an enjoyable experience for both clubs

first_imgThere are no more home games planned for Fort Nelson for the current hockey season, however they will remain busy on the ice. The team will turn their sights to participating in the B.C. provincials for the Coy Cup in Williams Lake in March.The Yeti will again put forth a proposal for membership in the North Peace Hockey League. The Fort Nelson proposal involved covering hotel costs for opposition teams and having a set amount for bus costs. The proposal also states if Fort St. John and Dawson Creek are willing to make the trip to Fort Nelson every year then other teams in the North Peace Hockey League will only need to make a trip to Fort Nelson once every three seasons.If the NPHL proposal falls through Carter and the Yeti will then turn their attention to joining the Central Interior Hockey League. Head Coach Gerard Dicare says members of the Yeti organization went above and beyond in terms of accommodations for the Flyers and also have a great arena for hockey games.“They were a generous host. That facility that they have up their is top notch with the two rinks and the lounge in between both,” he says. “The hotel was good; we had food after the games and beverages to drink. They definitely will be making a good bid to get into this league next year.” President of the Fort Nelson Yeti Ryan Carter says fans in Fort Nelson were excited to see more hockey and witnessed two quality games over the weekend.- Advertisement -“We had a really good showing by our community this weekend. There was a real buzz around town and it was a real good weekend overall,” he states. “They were treated to two really good hockey games where both came down to an empty net goal. It was really exciting for the fans and a really good showing all weekend by Fort St. John for bringing a team here.”Carter adds that the Yeti are continuing to get more support from fans and businesses and the organization is also taking time to immerse themselves in the community. “It’s just been all positive news around town here. There was more fans and more support for our team. We’ve been very busy in the community. We have been involving ourselves with the minor hockey programs, we’ve been doing school visits and items like that,” he explains. “More sponsors are wanting to come on board after seeing the excitement around town. It’s been growing here ever since our games with Devon over Christmas.”Advertisementlast_img read more

Back to school changes occurring

first_imgThe first day of school will be filled with new faces and new grades in a few of the schools around Fort St. John.Dr. Kearney and Bert Bowes will be changing from junior secondary schools to middle schools, accommodating grades 7 to 9 while Grade 10 students will be moving into North Peace Secondary School, says School District 60 Superintendent Larry Espe.Espe says the high school will be moving to a ‘flex block’ system to accommodate the extra students. The system means that instead of having a four period day with all grades having the same lunch, there will now be five periods in a day and each student could have a different spare period.- Advertisement -The idea is to have this new system in place in the high school for the upcoming school year until Sep. 2011 when certain classes may be moved into the Enerplex.With the added grade at the high school, the school’s population will expand to around 1,100 students – an increase of roughly 200. However, Espe adds that class sizes won’t be affected since, with the added period, the school will be making full use of its classroom space.To make the transition from elementary to middle school or from middle school to high school, grade 7 and 8 students at Bert Bowes will begin on Sept. 7 at 8:45 a.m. and at Dr. Kearney at 9 a.m. Both schools will have a shortened day ending at 11 a.m.Advertisement Grade 10 students at NPSS will start on Sept. 7, with a half day between 8:45 a.m. and 12 p.m. This gives the students an opportunity to become familiar with the school, says Principal Ray Asai.Regular classes for all grades at the three schools will begin Sept. 8.last_img read more

3 in Vineland Boys gang receive terms

first_imgThree more members of the Vineland Boys – including its “enforcer” – were sentenced Tuesday in the federal racketeering case against the notorious street gang linked to drug dealing and the shooting death of a Burbank police officer. During the sentencing in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, Francisco Zambrano, 27, of Mission Hills received 40 years in federal prison after Judge John F. Walter called him “one of the most violent individuals who has ever appeared in this court.” Zambrano was convicted of the attempted murder of Bryan Guerra, a Marine whom the defendant felt acted disrespectfully to him at a party, among other crimes. “He markets himself as the enforcer for the Vineland Boys gang,” the judge said. “He is a cold-blooded killer.” Prosecutors said the Vineland Boys trafficked in cocaine, meth and marijuana in L.A., Hawaii, Indiana and the East Coast. The group also is linked to four homicides, including the slaying of rookie Burbank police Officer Matthew Pavelka, who was killed in a shootout with alleged Vineland Boys member David Garcia, who is awaiting trial on murder charges.

Jose Mejia, 37, of Bakersfield received 27 years. In total, seven of the nine defendants have been sentenced since their convictions in October on violations of the federal Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, drug trafficking and other charges. Two others, including lead defendant Rafael Yepiz, 35, of Reseda, are set to be sentenced Feb. 26. Yepiz faces a mandatory life sentence after his conviction on RICO and other charges. On Monday, U.S. District Judge John F. Walter sentenced Jesus Contreras and Mariano Meza to 25 years, and Manuel Yepiz to 20 years in federal prison. The nine were among 49 defendants named in the federal indictment against alleged members and associates of the Sun Valley-based gang authorities said terrorized parts of Burbank, North Hollywood and Palmdale for more than a decade. last_img read more

Green, Kapono steal the show

first_imgHe first made an electrifying two-handed slam on an alley-oop pass off the side of the backboard from teammate Paul Pierce in the first round. Green then jumped over fellow finalist Nate Robinson while wearing the No. 7 Celtics jersey of 1991 dunk champion Dee Brown – and shielding his eyes in the crook of his elbow in an homage to Brown’s memorable no-look dunk. Green easily won over the five-man judges’ panel of Michael Jordan, Julius Erving, Dominique Wilkins, Kobe Bryant and Vince Carter – particularly when Robinson, the diminutive 2006 champion, missed nine consecutive times on his final dunk before finally landing a one-handed spin move. LAS VEGAS – Boston’s Gerald Green capped All-Star Saturday with an acrobatic leap over a table to win the dunk contest, and Miami’s Jason Kapono fell just short of an event record while winning the 3-Point Shootout. Green, the Celtics’ 20-year-old swingman, performed his two most memorable dunks in the first round before that final leap over a table bearing the All-Star game logo for a windmill jam. Green and Robinson eliminated Orlando’s Dwight Howard and Chicago’s Tyrus Thomas in the first round, even though the 6-foot-11 Howard came up with the most original move. While catching a high bounce pass from teammate Jameer Nelson for a right-handed slam, Howard reached nearly to the top of the backboard to slap a sticker bearing his face onto the glass – 12 feet, 6 inches off the ground, according to Nelson. Earlier, Kapono beat stars Gilbert Arenas and Dirk Nowitzki with a final-round 24 – one shy of the event record. Kapono tied Mark Price’s final-round record and fell just one point shy of Craig Hodges’ overall mark with an impressive performance in the last round. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Wenger vows to fine Iwobi over partying

first_imgIwobi started in the Gunners’ shock 4-2 loss at the City Ground on Sunday and Wenger is ready to take action despite defending his player amid accusations of drug-taking at the late night party.“If that is true he will be fined,” Wenger said during his press conference ahead of Wednesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final first leg against Chelsea.“’It’s unacceptable. It’s impossible to go out 48 hours before a game. I will have to see him and see if that is right or not.”Although there is no suggestion Iwobi was taking drugs, tenants in neighbouring flats reported laughing gas canisters and a strong smell of cannabis coming from the party apartment, according to The Sun.READ: Wenger vows to fine Iwobi if he was partying until 3am on day before FA Cup defeat“It was 48 hours before the game,” Wenger added. “The night before the game we were in a hotel. I will speak to him.”“You have to be cautious with the news coming out – when you read what has been reported it is like he has taken drugs but he’s not involved in that.”“If he was at a birthday party, how long has he stayed? That is very important. After that I will decide what happens. If your neighbour takes drugs, what can you do about it? You are responsible for your behaviour.”Meanwhile, Gary Neville has waded into the debate on when players should be allowed to go out prior to matches.The former Manchester United and England defender took to Twitter to claim stars can enjoy themselves but only a week before a game.Neville tweeted: “It used to be 48 hours 25 years ago. I would suggest now 99% of players wouldn’t go out to a club 4-5 days before a game.  At United when I played towards the end I would say Saturday night is ok when you have a game the Saturday/Sunday after.”A source told The Sun that Iwobi and his group had been refused entry to a club, so rented an AirBnB flat in Soho.The partying kept residents awake for hours, and it is thought the antics went on for at least another hour after the video was shot.Arsenal fans were furious with Iwobi’s performance against Forest, describing him as ‘rubbish’ and saying he would be better suited to Championship level with Nottingham Forest.One fan wrote on Twitter: ‘Arsenal should suspend Alex Iwobi for his actions on Saturday night and Sunday morning, knowing he was a “senior player” on the Sunday against Forest. Sheer stupidity and naivety from him. Explains his poor performance too.’Another said: ‘Doesn’t deserve to start now don’t deserve to be at this club.‘We want him sold or contract ripped up and thrown away.’-By Daily Mail-0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Iwobi started as holders Arsenal were knocked out of the FA Cup by Nottingham Forest.

Pennsylvania mayor’s Old West idea bites the dust

first_img“I was shocked,” Councilwoman Linda Thompson said. “I was shocked that the mayor would even think that this was something that would generate tourism for Harrisburg.” Reed has defended his spending as perfectly legal. Asked in 2003, why a Western museum, he responded: “Why not?” As recently as Tuesday, he said, “I still think it’s a good idea,” but added: “We need the money right now.” To buy the items, Reed tapped an account at the Harrisburg Authority, where his expenditures were approved by officials he had appointed.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre “If we get less, then it’s just a big mistake and it’s unfortunate for the people of Harrisburg,” said Councilman Dan Miller. For sale are covered wagons, marshal’s badges, boots, chaps, saddles, “Wanted” posters, letters, photographs, maps, furniture, pottery, artwork, pistols, rifles, knives and more. One item expected to fetch tens of thousands of dollars is a bright red Wells Fargo & Co. stagecoach, in working condition. When Reed became mayor of this city of 47,000 in 1982, his dream was to transform the decaying, shrinking Harrisburg into a cultural destination. Under his leadership, hotels and restaurants have opened downtown and the number of businesses on the tax rolls has more than quadrupled. A minor-league baseball team now plays in a park that rose from a trash dump. In 2001, Reed opened the National Civil War Museum, even though none of the war’s major battles played out in the city. (Gettysburg, though, is 36 miles away.) As for his dream of building the National Museum of the Old West, council members were outraged – not only by the way he bypassed them and the amount of money spent, but by the seemingly ludicrous notion of a Wild West museum 1,400 miles east of Deadwood, S.D. HARRISBURG, Pa. – Halfway across the continent from where Buffalo Bill roamed and Custer made his last stand, the mayor of this debt-ridden city spent millions in public money on everything from six-shooters to covered wagons for a museum about cowboys, Indians and the Wild West. And he did it without telling the City Council, whose members felt as if they had been hit by the swinging doors of a frontier saloon when they found out from a reporter in 2003. Today, the other dusty cowboy boot will drop when hundreds of the items go on the auction block in Dallas in a sell-off ordered by the City Council. With Harrisburg hundreds of millions of dollars in debt, city officials will be watching closely to see how much can be reclaimed from the roughly $6.5 million Mayor Stephen R. Reed said he spent on the Old West collectibles. last_img read more
