first_img Meanwhile, there was a Jamaican sweep in the men’s half-marathon. Kirk Brown retained the title he won last year, topping a competitive field to win in 1:12:58. Gregory McKenzie was not far off the pace but ended up in second spot, crossing the line in 1:13:28. Kemar Leslie ran 1:20:12 for third. Brazilian Adelita Gomes took the female category in 1:29:03, ahead of Canadians Stephanie Zammit 1:39:03 and Yuki Chorney 1:43:56. St Mary-based distance runner Dwayne Graham copped the top spot in the men’s 10K. Gordon’s winning time was 32:32, with Garfield Gordon (32:52) in second place and Andre Walker third in 34:17. Vere Technical dominated the high-school girls’ category to finish with the top two places. Brittanie Dixon ran through for first in 41:30, ahead of her teammate Kris-Ann Plummer, 41:34. Third place was taken by 14-year-old Shantay Chamberlain (14:06). Over 2,300 runners participated, including first-time entrants from six new countries to the Reggae Marathon. “We could not have asked for more; it has been a remarkable journey for us. The Reggae Marathon continues to grow and is certainly the biggest of its kind in the English-speaking Caribbean,” Francis said. “Sixteen fulfilling years and we are satisfied. Next year, there will be more great additions and changes to make it even better, while we use this means to market what is known as Brand Jamaica across the world,” he said. JAMAICAN SWEEP WESTERN BUREAU: The Reggae Marathon was designed to stimulate sports tourism, says conceptualiser and chief organiser Alfred ‘Frano’ Francis. So when Japan’s Kota Taniguchi crossed the line first to win the 16th staging in Negril, it confirmed what Francis had in mind. “The genesis of this event was really to support sports tourism and boost the economy of Jamaica and that was the concept from 2001. Now we can say this is a true testimony of sports tourism in Jamaica,” Francis said. “Every year since then, we have had thousands of people coming here to participate, adding a significant amount of money to the economy of Negril,” he added. “They come from a wide array of countries and they have become ambassadors for this marathon. It is beginning to become a huge deal and we are happy about that,” continued the dreadlocked Francis. Taniguchi is on an exchange programme between the Prefecture of Tottori, Japan, and Westmoreland. The city and parish were twinned in an official ceremony in the Asian nation last year. Taniguchi crossed the line in two hours 38 minutes and 49 seconds to win the event ahead of Jamaica’s marathon standout Rupert Green, who was second in 2:43:49, with Brian Polen of the US back in third place, after stopping the clock in 2:58:00. Canadian first-time entrant Karen Warrendorf, took top spot in the female section, winning in 3:39:15. She was followed across the line by the Chinese pair of Ting Yu 3:48:19 and Sun Yingjie 3:52:01. Pleased with his effort, Taniguchi said he was happy to win the event on his first attempt. “It was very hot, which makes it very difficult for me to run. However, the course is flat, which is good. In Tottori, there are hills and the route is much cooler, but I think the Reggae Marathon is great,” Taniguchi said through an interpreter. It was also a first-time visit for Warrendorf. The Toronto, Canada native agreed with her male counterpart, but told The Gleaner she was delighted to have travelled so far to secure the win. “I am so happy right now. I never thought about coming here to win. I wanted to enjoy the run and I did, but to emerge the winner is special. It is a sweet victory,” she said.last_img read more

first_imgAs the Muslim community commences its Holy Month of Ramadan, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo is urging members to use the month of activities as an incentive to promote social cohesion despite socialOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeosegregations evident in Guyana.While extending his greetings to Muslims across Guyana, Jagdeo reminded that in light of the calendar of activities, they should not lose sight of what the period essentially symbolises, not only for those within the religion but every other citizen of Guyana.Pointing specifically to cohesive gestures that would ignite national unity, he mentioned that the country’s priority should be to reunite its people.“Guyana is in need of every sincere effort that increases the cohesion of our society, fosters the ties of love and correlation therein, highlights its noble and virtuous values, and unites us to be one hand capable of building this country which is teeming with good and loyal citizens,” Jagdeo declared.Notably, he emphasised on the overall display of kindness and hospitality which should be practised throughout the period, and even beyond, as the Month is usually characterised by demonstrations of goodwill by all Muslim brothers and sisters.“This period of Ramadan inspires Muslims to focus more on others and think about those who are less fortunate. The principles and actions demonstrated during this time – of empathy, sacrifice, generosity and concern for the welfare of others – can be an inspiration for our nation, irrespective of faith.”Alluding to the contributions by the Muslim community and their impact on Guyana’s development, Jagdeo commended them for their significant role in nation building.“We in the PPP/C have always championed religious tolerance, and we are proud of the diverse traditions in our country and we recognise and commend the contributions Muslims have made and continue to make to enrich our society.”He took the time to express his expectations of the Month of Ramadan bringing light to the current political situation in Guyana where discrimination and exclusion continued to segregate the population.“Ramadan, a month of quiet contemplation, will no doubt trigger our thoughts to those who have been wronged, oppressed or discriminated against. The promise of a good life is but for a selected few. Our country is in need of a future without discrimination or exclusion of anyone,” Jagdeo mentioned.The Opposition Leader reiterated his Party’s commitment to being advocates for a better quality of life for all Guyanese.As the month of activities brings to the front burner a reflection of Guyana, Jagdeo encouraged a renewal of unity as the country strives to move forward while celebrating the auspicious period.last_img read more

first_imgThe Education Ministry is moving to resuscitate Parent-Teachers Associations (PTAs) across the nation and increase the number of student councils.Augmenting the number of these Associations and student councils will allow for parents and other stakeholders to share in the process of diagnosing and taking actions to address issues affecting schools and children’s performance, Chief Planning Officer in the Ministry, Evelyn Hamilton said.Engaging indigenous leaders at the National Toshaos Council (NTC) Conference recently, Hamilton explained, “What the Ministry wants to do in a sense, is to have our stakeholders – parents, Toshaos, other community leaders being able to look at the school and to be able to say to the Ministry what might be going wrong, with the physical facilities, what might be going wrong with teachers’ attendance, with children’s attendance… and to suggest ways in which for each individual school there could be an improvement in performance.”There are also plans to have a new PTA Secretariat. This will ensure a line of communication through which the concerns of the PTAs can be channelled to the Ministry for action, Education Minister, Dr Rupert Roopnaraine said.“I believe that for us to move this whole education train along, we must get the active collaboration of teachers and parents. Teachers have the children in school for a few hours; the parents have them the rest of the time. We cannot have teachers doing one thing in the classroom, and when they get home, parents doing another,” the Minister is quoted as saying by the Government Information Agency at the recently-concluded NTC.“We need to ensure that the collaboration between our teachers and our parents is very strong. To that end, we are planning to establish at the Ministry of Education a national PTA secretariat, where we are going to monitor much more carefully than we were able to do the state, the conditions of the PTAs across the country,” he explained.The Ministry has already engaged a PTA coordinator to assist with improving the capacity and capability of the bodies and student councils countrywide. The Ministry has also employed the PTA Secretariat Head.last_img read more

first_img– says incident yet another reason for establishment of ERCThe Indian Action Committee (IAC) has said it has taken note of the media reports of alleged racial utterances purportedly attributed to the President’s Press Officer, Lloyda Nicholas-Garrett.“Given the uneasiness that such alleged comments can precipitate and the negative impact it can have on the fragile fabric of social harmony, the IAC reiterates it’s another reason for the urgent establishment of the Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC),” the IAC said in a statement.Public Information and Press Services Officer Lloyda Nicholas-GarrettThe IAC, while welcoming the investigation reportedly launched into the incident, said it was gravely concerned given what was in the public domain. It, therefore, urged that the investigation be conducted thoroughly, unhindered, swiftly and its findings made public soonest, for such incidents can have national ramifications especially given its reported source.The IAC said it wished to unequivocally state its condemnation of anyone who resorts to the use of racial slurs and racial bashing in reference to and during engagements with others. “In addition, these alleged utterances unnecessarily bring to bear humiliation on those targeted,” it posited.The IAC said such actions have no place in society and have over time proven their potential in the sowing of discord. The IAC calls on all organisations to ensure its members, agents or representatives do not indulge in such actions, and they should be expelled if found responsible.The IAC believes that mixed messages were being sent through the alleged transgression by someone with direct access to the Head of State who established the Ministry of Social Cohesion with its mandate an administrative priority.The IAC also reminded that all, especially those who hold public offices, have a national responsibility not to engage in any activity or place comments in the public domain that threaten peace and harmony.last_img read more

I’m very happy with the decision I made,” said Lemar, who will wear the number 11 shirt for Diego Simeone’s side.“I know this team demands hard work and I’ll give it my all for the team. If I need to run more, I’ll do it without a problem.”Lemar played just one of France’s seven matches at the World Cup, starting the 0-0 draw with Denmark in the group stage, and has already started training after just a short break.“I’m looking forward to getting started with my new club, getting to know the staff, my new team-mates and the supporters.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Thomas Lemar will be joined by France team-mates Antoine Griezmann and Lucas Hernandez at Atletico © AFP / JAVIER SORIANOMADRID, Spain, Jul 30 – France midfielder Thomas Lemar wants to lift the Champions League trophy in his debut season at Atletico Madrid with the Spanish club set to host next year’s final.“I’m going to give everything possible to go the furthest and win this Champions League,” Lemar said Monday as he was unveiled by Atletico following his arrival from Monaco.last_img read more

first_imgLiverpool’s academy squad numbers will have been licking their lips at the prospect of Jurgen Klopp taking the Anfield reins.While Klopp’s predecessor Brendan Rodgers had overseen the development and emergence of Raheem Sterling and Jordon Ibe, the German built a reputation as one of the finest managers for nurturing young talent in Europe while with Borussia Dortmund. Robert Lewandowski and Mario Gotze are testament to that and Ibe, for one, has spoken of his desire to emulate Lewandowski’s achievements under Klopp’s guidance.Klopp appears to have already identified who he has earmarked as one for the future. When asked before Sunday’s win over Swansea about the continued frustration over Daniel Sturridge’s fitness problems, he said:“It’s not the most difficult situation at this moment with the strikers. We have Christian [Benteke], Divock [Origi], and Roberto [Firmino]. And if they can’t play, we have a young lad, for sure, [Jerome] Sinclair from the U21s who can play.”Sinclair’s singling out will be a huge boost to the young striker. From reportedly snubbing a new deal in the summer and seemingly following Sterling out of the Anfield exit door, the 19-year-old could now be on the brink of first-team recognition. Divock Origi’s struggles, in the regular absence of Sturridge, Christian Benteke and Danny Ings, may provide Sinclair with a chance to shine.At 16, Sinclair became the youngest senior player in the club’s history when he made a substitute appearance against West Brom in the League Cup in 2012. Since then he has become an integral part of the club’s U21 side, plundering 20 goals last season either side of a brief loan spell with Wigan in the Championship.He was rewarded for this form by Rodgers, who saw fit to introduce him into the first-team fold at the end of last season with cameo appearances against Chelsea and Crystal Palace.Sinclair also revealed he has learnt a lot from Anfield legend Robbie Fowler, who has been sharing some words of wisdom with the youngster.“Robbie is a legend at this club so to get a few helpful tips from him and some advice is brilliant for me,” he told the Liverpool Echo.“This is a guy who has been there and done it and played at the pinnacle of the game. It’s fantastic for me to get the chance to work with him and it can only improve my game.“He has given me a few little tips on my first touch, and worked with me on different types of finishing. He is always there to help me in any way he can.”Fowler’s tutelage, combined with Klopp’s vivacity, is a recipe for success. Add Liverpool’s ongoing injury crisis in the attacking department and it suggests an opportunity for Sinclair may not be too far away. Southampton in the League Cup quarter-final on Wednesday night could well be the perfect platform. 1 Jerome Sinclair last_img read more
