first_img“The Government must assume responsibility for not closing earlier”And it is that, as the mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, and the current director of public health in Liverpool, Matthew Ashton, as ex, John Ashton, Rotheram does not hesitate to re-qualify as a tremendous “mistake” allowing the journey of the red and white fans to the town on March 11 (three days later in Spain a state of alarm would be declared). “Dmust be analyzed, and needs the government to assume some responsibility for not closing earlier“the mayor settled on this party, which will continue to kick. 43 days after the game continues the controversy around Liverpool-Atlético second round of the Champions League. The authorities have placed the magnifying glass on it and link it to the increase in cases of coronavirus in the town. Mayor Steve Rotheram, who already criticized him in his day, is now calling for an independent investigation to establish a possible connection to an increase in cases of the disease in Liverpool since then. “If people have contracted coronavirus as a direct result of a sporting event we believe that shouldn’t have taken place, well that’s outrageous“he stated on the BBC. “We have seen an increase in the infection curve, and that resulted in 1,200 people in Liverpool contracting COVID-19“he counted. “That needs to be investigated to find out if some of those infections are directly due to Atlético fans. There were hot coronavirus cities, and Madrid was one of them,” he said. “They were not allowed to congregate in their own country, but 3,000 of those fans came to ours. and they could possibly have spread the coronavirus, “he argued as well. last_img read more

first_imgNew challenges in his career that he faces with discipline from confinement to continue growing. This course still has challenges ahead. “Now I have to come back stronger than ever,” he admits. Hunger is not lacking. The same that he has shown throughout his career and that helped Levante to opt for him. A tonic in his career. What is evident is that, at the age of 24, he has not yet reached a ceiling. From Macedonia, passing through Denmark, Sweden and Hungary, until reaching Spain. There are different ways to reach the elite. In most cases, the large quarries dominate the large number of footballers who reach the top. But, obviously, it is not the only way. This is the case of Enis Bardhi, Levante midfielder, who came to LaLiga on side B of football.The Macedonian path began in his hometown of Skopje. There he began to stand out in the ranks of the FK Shkupi since Bedri Saliu, his discoverer, took his eye at six years old. From then until 15 He burned stages until Macedonian grassroots football became too small for him to materialize his dreams. The small midfielder wanted to try new challenges to achieve professional football. More specifically, one of the great leagues on the continent.Player-supplied image. ‘); Return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Enis Bardhi during his last years in Macedonia, at 15 years old.Image provided by the player. With Macedonia at the time outside the European Union, his first destination away from home was the Bronby quarry, one of the strong teams in Denmark, to join the U19 team in 2013. However, it only lasted a few months and in November of that same year he signed for the Prespa Birlik of the Swedish Third Division.. Bardhi left training football behind to venture into the catacombs of professionalism.They were difficult times. Being one of the youngest members of the squad, he played friendlies and little else until they gave him the opportunity. He did not waste it and showed what pasta it is made of. Five goals in ten games earned him the Hungarian Újpest bet on signing his first professional contract. He always believed in his chances of getting there, although it is true that Hungary was the boost his career needed. A stroke of luck sought since leaving home.Its trajectory went from less to more. In its first year, 2014-15, with the ’29’ on his back, appeared timidly in the team but already showing signs of his potential. That year Hungarian Super Cup champions were proclaimed. In May he debuted with the absolute team of his country. The decision seemed to have been the correct one.The second season he accumulated gallons and, as he was developing physically, he was gaining prominence in the team; sharing costumes, among others, with Kylian Hazard, the youngest brother in the series. To the point that the following year he inherited the ‘7’ from the Belgian, who went on to wear the ’10’, and it definitely exploded in the OTP Bank Liga.That campaign, his last in Hungary, the Macedonian signed 12 goals in 29 days, being the third top scorer in the competition despite his status as a midfielder, surpassed only by Marton Eppel (16) and Stefan Scepovic (13), ex of Sporting de Gijón. His next step, and the window to the world, the European U21.Loaded with confidence after his great year at Újpest, and after a great qualifying phrase, Bardhi was preparing to demonstrate his worth among the best projects in Europe. However, Levante had already done their homework. However, “He bet on Levante and rejected other teams just after the European, some from Spain.” Girona or Getafe, without going any further, tested him. But Bardhi, a follower of Spanish football since he was a child, was dazzled by Levante’s proposal, which swept away that season in the Second Division. Her other two suitors also rose, but with less force. That, and the confidence transmitted from the club, were the triggers for his arrival in Valencia.“We saw impressive technical conditions at Bardhi. He could play in two or three positions. He was very hungry and personally we liked the way he was. We decided to bet on it“remarks the Segovian. The bet was decided: 1.5 million by a complete stranger to the general public. Its impact in Spain, immediate.Already in the preseason he surprised with three goals from set pieces in three attempts, specialty brand of the house. Doubts were soon dispelled, he promised high. A few weeks later in Orriols, and after the departure of Ruben GarciaThey did not hesitate to offer him the ’10’ in a gesture of confidence. He answered.center_img His first year in LaLiga was spectacular in numbers, although intermittent in terms of his level of play.. There was the margin for growth in a technically brilliant player and generous in effort, but somewhat anarchic in his movements on the field. The leap in quality of Spanish football was a reality. He, precisely, chose him to follow his progression, aware that the characteristics of the championship fit his style of play.He signed nine goals, five of them on set pieces, in 1580 minutes. Without a doubt, one of the revelations of the championship. In a few months, his name, and his beating, were already known in the country. Currently he has six goals missing, the last against Getafe in October 2018. It has already rained since then.“After the first year, it has grown a lot. It’s not just a stopped ball. It has more rhythm and speed. Has taken a step forward“, reflects Carmelo. And, despite the fact that his goalscoring numbers have declined, his influence on the team is unquestionable and has grown in other aspects. Levante shielded its pearl until 2022, with the option of two more years, and clause of 50 million euros.Since the arrival of Paco López he has won in hierarchy and in soccer. He is a more complete player. Last year he only signed three goals, but one of them of vital importance: that of staying against Girona in Montilivi. Somewhat for the elect.This season he continues his descent, both in Levante and in his team, where each call is more influential in the group. With Macedonia he was on the verge of epic, competing to qualify for the next Eurocup. Something that would be historic in your country. Also in Levante. After three seasons at the club, is one goal away from matching Arouna Koné as the club’s fifth top scorer in Primera. At the moment he has two goals this season, in addition to three assists.@ enisbardhi10 ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Enis Bardhi works on her set-up during confinement.@ enisbardhi10 “A club like Levante has logical limitations when it comes to going for players. We looked at the teams that participated in the U21 classification phase, not the important ones. There we find the filter” Carmelo del Pozo account, technical secretary at the time and who directly entered into talks with him and his representative to prepare the signing, for ACE.“When he went to the final phase, where he played a great role, we had already talked to him. There other clubs appeared, but he respected that we had been the first“, account of the Well. In that European, Bardhi broke it and stood out with goals against Serbia and Portugal, showing his privileged hitting. The world of soccer fixed its eyes on the Balkan midfielder who shone with his own light in the midfield of Macedonia.last_img read more

first_imgYou can see why UK Athletics would suggest an erasure of all track and field world records. Not only does it appear that some athletes are tempted to boost their performances illegally, but now there are also alleged incidences of corruption in high places. It’s a matter of trust.With changes in the testing regime and prosecution of those proven to be corrupt, trust could eventually be restored. It’s all nice and neat. The only trouble is the cost to those athletes who set records fairly and would yet lose those marks because of the ‘bandooloo’ of others.There’s a real danger that the swathe of the broad brush will colour everybody dirty. That isn’t fair. Why should the likes of Usain Bolt, Michael Johnson, David Rudisha, Hicham El Guerrouj, Kenenisa Bekele, Aries Merritt, Mike Powell, Jonathan Edwards, Renaud Lavillenie, Jan Zelenzy and Ashton Eaton lose records that most people believe they set through hard work and talent?The same goes for performers like Tirunesh and Genzebe Dibaba, Galina Chistyakova, Elena Isinbaeva, Inessa Kravets, Stefka Kostadinova, Barbora Spotakova, Anita Wlodarczyk and Jackie Joyner-Kersee.It’s probably fairer to wipe records away when there is proof of evil doing.EASTGERMANYTRAVESTYSadly, the sport has been slow to wipe away the performances of the former East Germany, even though formerly secret documents pinpoint athletes like 400-metre world record holder Marita Koch as subjects of its state-organised steroid use programme.Koch, her East German teammates Marlies Gohr, Silke Gladisch and Heike Drechsler, and American Diane Williams, beat Merlene Ottey out of three World Championships gold medals in 1983 and 1987.Williams later confessed to using illegal performances at the time when she was third in the 1983 World Championships 100m behind Gohr and Koch and ahead of Ottey.As a general principle, once there is proof, as in the case of the East Germans, the record books should be wiped clean and medals re-assigned.Ironically, the UK Athletics suggestion has been rebuffed by one of their own. World marathon record holder Paula Radcliffe has always been a staunch opponent of those who use of performance enhancing drugs. She believes the ‘wipe all records’ suggestion goes over board.It is easier, in times of trouble, to throw the baby out with the bath water.As important as it is to stop the rot, it’s equally important to do it justly and not penalise those who did their great feats by dint of hard work, astute coaching and the gifts they were born with.Even now, in this time where trust is stretched to the limit, those athletes are an inspiration to us all.n Hubert Lawrence has made notes at track side since 1980.last_img read more

first_imgFrom all indications, defending champions Arnett Gardens will not start the season at full strength.According to head coach Jerome Waite, the Business House competition has kept his players occupied up until the start of the season, while others are still overseas.However, the three-time Premier League-winning coach has placed his trust in the experienced players he has available, as well as young players coming into the squad.”Arnett Gardens will start slow this season,” he told The Gleaner. “Reason being, a lot of players participate in the Business House competition and they have not shown up for regular training, as well as players overseas. But despite that, we are looking forward to the season, as it’s not how we start, but how we finish,” he said.”I am not worried about the core of the team at this time,” he continued. “The youngsters here will be given the opportunity, all they need to do is go out and perform to the best of their ability and put the pressure on the other players that are not here (yet).”He admitted that the young players will go through a learning curve before they can establish themselves.Learning process”They (young players) will be going through a learning process, but the fact that we have a system in place means that players have to understand the roles and functions of the system, so it will be a learning process for a lot of those youngsters,” he pointed out.”The team will always be prepared physically, mentally, tactically, technically and psychologically and all of those things when we put them together will ensure Arnett Gardens have another successful season,” he continued.Even though some key players from last season’s triumph will miss the start of this campaign, Waite intends to start with a win against University of the West Indies FC to Monday.”Although the core of the team is not there I expect them to handle themselves well. Our last 13 games up to the final we won and we want to continue that unbeaten run.”As the defending champions, you have to take your opportunity at the start of the season, not in middle or the end. In the first round, you have to go out and start as champions,” he insisted.last_img read more

first_img With Western Champs out of the way and having no clear challenge in either the 400m, 800m or the 1,500m, Broomfield is setting her sights on conquering new frontiers. “ISSA Girls Champs is my aim right now; I plan on getting three gold medals there, also in the 800m, where I am gunning for a fourth straight win in that event. Also, I hope to win gold in the 400m flat, as well as the 400m hurdles,” declared Bromfield. Bromfield wasn’t alone in the books as multiple record holder, as Cornwall College’s triple jumper Alrick Ottey twice extended the top mark. His first mark came after leaping 15.56 metres to win the boys’ Class One title, eclipsing the previous meet record of 15.37m held by Odaine Lewis. Ottey later extended the record, this time jumping 15.69m. There were other impressive performances, including STETHS’s Winsome Harris’ record run to win the girls’ Class Three 80m hurdles. Harris clocked 11.64 seconds for gold, beating the old mark of 12.07. Nigel Ellis, another star from the STETHS factory, commanded attention as he made light work of the field in landing the boys’ Class One 100m with a new record. Ellis clocked 10.20 seconds, erasing the old standard of 10.32 seconds. Mathew Brown of Cornwall College and Marquis Jones of STETHS grabbed silver and bronze, respectively. Vanessia Pusey won the girls’ Class One equivalent in 11.28. Aberdeen High School, based in St Elizabeth, broke new ground by winning their first ever medal at Western Champs through 12- year-old Jadau Burke, who won the boys’ Open 3000m. Petersfield High’s Antonio Watson ran into the record books, posting 50.82 to win the boys’ Class Three 400m. His time bettered the old record of 50.87. Munro College’s Devante Heywood was equally impressive in the boys’ Class Four 400m, setting a new record of 52.81 seconds. The Digicel Grand Prix Athletics Championship events include the 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 4x400m, long jump, high jump and discus. NEW FRONTIERS WESTERN BUREAU: Eight records tumbled as St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) returned as double champions at Saturday’s County of Cornwall Athletics Association (COCAA) Western Championships – part of the Digicel Grand Prix Athletics Championship – at the Montego Bay Sports Complex, but the undoubted star of the show was the champions’ super athlete, Junelle Bromfield. Bromfield used her scintillating form to send a message to all-comers at March’s Girls Champs and the remainder of the Digicel Grand Prix Championship by blitzing two records. The STETHS athlete shattered the old mark of 54.49 to easily win the girls’ Class One 400m in a time of 52.43. Kimisha Chambers of STETHS and Segale Brown of Petersfield High took silver and bronze, respectively. Bromfield returned later to obliterate the Class One 800m field in 2:07.37, destroying the old meet record of 3:13.53. Shaniq Summerville of The Manning’s School was second and Shaneice Buchanan of Rusea’s High placed third. It marks a triple gold run at these championships for Bromfield, who had already secured the 1,500m title at last Tuesday’s girls’ eliminations at Rusea’s High School. “The feeling is great, but I think I may have disappointed my coach a little because he wanted me to take it a little easier on the first lap. But I pushed myself harder without anyone giving a serious challenge,” Bromfield said. “I was never challenged by the other athletes today. I thought it was an easy victory, and to get not one, but two records in one day, is fantastic,” the usually shy athlete told The Gleaner.last_img read more

first_imgExcelsior High School’s Shanice Love has been dominant at the regional level.Now, she is celebrating her first title at the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Associ-ation (ISSA)/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships, after a record-breaking performance in the Class One girls discus event.The dominant Love landed the disc an amazing 52.73 metres to erase Tara-Sue Barnett’s 2013 mark of 51.16m.Davia Brown (Hydel High), 42.76m, was second, with St Jago’s Tracey-Ann Simms, 41.52m, taking third.”This is my last Champs and I really wanted to make my mark, and I did,” beamed Love.So with two events scored, Excelsior are out in front of the girls’ race with 15 points, one more than Hydel High (14), followed by St Jago (10), Wolmer’s (nine), Holmwood (seven), Vere Technical (seven), and Buff Bay High (six).Three finals are on for today’s third day of competition among the girls.Defending champion Natalliah Whyte has been a spectator for much of the season as she struggled with a prolonged injury. She was good enough for second place in her Class One 200m heat yesterday, clocking 24.18 to finish behind Holmwood’s Shanta Deer, 24.11.Holmwood’s Ashley Williams, 23.80, was quickest to the line in the heats, with Edwin Allen’s Patrice Moody joining her as the only two athletes to dip below 24 seconds, with a 23.82 win in her heat.St Jago’s Shaniel English was most impressive in the Class Two girls 200m heats, stopping the clock at 24.07 to win her heat with little trouble.

But she will be hard-pressed to win this event with the likes of Kevona Davis (Edwin Allen), who also booked her spot in the next round with a 24.61 win in her heat. Britany Anderson (Vere), 24.40, and Hydel’s Ashanti Moore, 24.72, also made progress.Excelsior’s Ackera Nugent, 24.97, is another one to watch in this event.Edwin Allen’s Cemore Donald has already gone 2:10.09 in the 800m and the defending champion was authoritative in winning her heat and topping all qualifiers into today’s Class Three girls 800m semi-final with a fine 2:16.91 clocking.Her schoolmate, Kayan Green, was also the best in her heat, winning in 2:19.17 with Holmwood’s Delverna Bromfield, 2:20.48 completing the top three qualifiers. Medal favourite Britney Brown (Manchester), 2:24.14 also booked safe passage with a comfortable win in her heat.In Class 2, Chrissani May (Holmwood), who had to play bridesmaid in both the 800m and 1500m at last year’s championships – with two silver medals to her name – was keen to show her intentions at the first chance, posting the fastest time 2:15.31, in yesterday’s 800m qualifiers. Hydel’s Shanique Masters (2:15.60) finish second in the heat and was also the second fastest qualifier, with Vere’s Britnie Dixon, May’s main rival for the gold, also winning her heat comfortably in 2:17.51.Other impressive qualifiers included another Holmwood girl, Brittney Campbell, 2:17.90, Spalding’s Kimone Campbell, 2:18.15, Kelly-Ann Downer (St Andrew), 2:16.76 and Albert Town’s Tasinia Mothersill, 2:17.59.Janell Fullerton, a bronze medal winner for Edwin Allen last year, is safely through to the final of the girls Class One shot put event. Fullerton, who now defends the colours of St Jago, posted 12.12m to lead all qualifiers in her preliminary flight. But it was Immaculate Conception High’s Kadian Clarke who was most impressive, with a 12.31m mark in her flight.Medal contender Latifah Smith (XLCR), barely made it through to the final with a 10.55m effort, while Holmwood’s Georgetta Samuels, 11.89m; STETHS’ Sahjay Stevens, 11.82m and Rashida Elliott, also from Holmwood, 11.50m, where the other impressive qualifiers.Jordan Temple’s (Immaculate), 4.95m, is the best distance among qualifiers to the Class Four girls long jump event, while St Andrew’s Davia Nichol registered 4.92m on her first attempt, with Zourie Smith, also from St Andrew High and another Immaculate student, Shantay Kellyman, both going into the finals with 4.85m efforts.last_img read more
