Fraser-Pryce may double at World Champs

first_img 200m a possibililty Fraser-Pryce’s status makes her the woman to beat, but that fact does not trouble her. “For the 100m, you don’t have to look at the start lists to know that it is competitive right now,” she said. “They (her competitors) are running well and they are excited and hungry. Five other Jamaican athletes will compete at the meet. Peter Matthews will contest the 400m, while Simoya Campbell competes in the 800m. There are two Jamaican men in the 400m – Edino Steele and Rusheen McDonald. Joining Fraser-Pryce in the 100m will be Natasha Morrison. Stockholm, Sweden: REIGNING OLYMPIC and World 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce may very well also compete in the 200m at next month’s World Championships in Beijing after all. The defending 200m world champion admitted yesterday that her coach is now reconsidering his earlier decision to have her only compete in the 100m. Fraser-Pryce is currently in Sweden to contest the 100m at the BAUHAUS Athletics meet which makes up a leg of the prestigious IAAF Diamond League series. Once proceedings are over in the Stockholm Olympic Stadium, Fraser-Pryce will concentrate all her efforts on retaining her 100m World title at the Bird’s Nest Stadium. However, the Jamaican sprint star was unsure whether she would also compete in the 200m at the sport’s global showcase next month. A clearly relaxed Fraser-Pryce said: “My coach (Stephen Francis) did say earlier in the year that I would not be running the 200m at the World Championships. “But last week in training, I did 250m, 200m and 150m, and I’m like, why is he sending me all the way round the track? “His response was, ‘Who said you’re not doing the 200m at the World Championships?’ “He added that he’s changed his mind and he’s not sure just yet! “The good thing is I’m qualified for the 200m, so it’s not like I’m taking anybody else’s spot. “But for me, my mind is just on the 100m at present.” The affable Fraser-Pryce revealed that should she take part in the longer sprint, she would have a game plan. “The 200m is more strategic than anything else. I’m not an endurance runner, whereas there are other athletes who are good at it because they can run a very good 400m, too. I don’t run a very good 400m at all. “When I get to the 200m start line, it is more a case of whether I go hard for the first 50m, or do I give it 80 per cent and then blast the final stages? “Whatever I settle on along with my coach, that’s what I’m going to do. She added jokingly: “The 200m is too hard!” During her last Diamond League outing in Paris, Fraser-Pryce saw off a top-class field to record 10.74 seconds. In her wake was the highly rated English Gardner from the United States and Africans Blessing Okagbare (Nigeria) and Murielle Ahoure (Ivory Coast). Shelly the one to beatlast_img read more

Grenada’s football coach banned

first_imgST GEORGE’S, Grenada (CMC):FIFA has suspended Grenada’s senior men’s national football coach Anthony Modeste for four games and fined him more than US$10,000 for misconduct against match officials.The Disciplinary Committee, comprising of Claudio Sulser of Switzerland as chairman, and members Jim Shaw of Northern Ireland, Ariel Alvarado of Panama, and Cristian Varela of Chile, handed down its decision on July 23. The ruling was communicated to the Grenada Football Association (GFA) last week.The Spice Boyz coach is accused of breaching the FIFA Disciplinary Code by committing an unsporting conduct towards a match official during their World Cup preliminary round game against Puerto Rico in June.According to FIFA, Modeste, who received a red card during the first-leg preliminary game against Puerto Rico in the 2018 FIFA World Cup on June 12, will miss Grenada’s third-round qualifying games against Haiti next month.FIFA said that the automatic match suspension was already served when Grenada played Puerto Rico on June 16 in St George’s and in light of the fact that Grenada has qualified for the next round of the preliminary competition, Modeste will be served two match suspensions against Haiti on September 4 and 8.The governing body said that the remaining match suspension will have to be served if Grenada qualify for round four of the competition.However, if Grenada does not qualify for the subsequent round of the preliminary competition of the FIFA World Cup 2018, the remaining match suspension will be carried over to Grenada’s next official match.Modeste is also fined US$9,000 in application of the ruling and US$1,000 for the proceedings. He has 30 days from the date of notification of the decision to pay the fine.last_img read more

first_imgSimmons fails again in Heat lossBRISBANE, Australia (CMC):West Indies opener Lendl Simmons failed to score for the third time in four outings as his Brisbane Heat slid to an eight-wicket defeat to Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash here yesterday.Sent in at the Gabba, Heat rallied to 175 for six from their 20 overs, with opener Jimmy Peirson top-scoring with 51 from 36 balls and Nathan Reardon hitting an unbeaten 40 from 32 deliveries.The right-handed Simmons faced two balls before perishing in the second over leg before wicket to seamer Michael Neser with seven runs on the board.English leg-spinner Adil Rashid was brilliant, taking two for 17 from his four overs.In reply, Strikers raced to their target in the penultimate over with opener Tim Ludeman getting 57 not out off 49 balls; Mahela Jayawardene stroking 53 of 30 balls; and Travis Head, 50 off 25 balls.Bonners shines before rain takes overBASSETERRE, St Kitts (CMC):Jamaican Nkrumah Bonner stroked an entertaining half-century, but rain forced the abandonment of the Leeward Islands Hurricanes’ opening game of the Regional Super50 after only 38 overs at Warner Park here Thursday.Opting to bat first in the day/night encounter against Combined Campuses and Colleges Marooners, Hurricanes had reached 187 for five when the adverse weather ended the game prematurely.Both teams were awarded two points.In the time available, Bonner hammered 65 off 69 deliveries with six fours, while opener Shane Jeffers hit 47 and left-handed partner Chesney Hughes, 28.Messi set to get5th FIFA best player prizeGENEVA (AP):Lionel Messi is favoured to win the FIFA Ballon d’Or on Monday, ending Cristiano Ronaldo’s two-year hold on football’s top individual prize.Messi already has a 4-3 lead in their career duel for the annual FIFA prize but has recently been eclipsed by his great rival.That changed in 2015 when Messi inspired Barcelona to regain the Champions League title among five major trophies to none for Real Madrid, despite Ronaldo’s relentless goalscoring pace.Barcelona’s dominance also helped Brazil star Neymar earn a place on the three-man shortlist for the first time.The Catalan club can sweep the men’s honours with Luis Enrique heading the coaches’ shortlist after becoming European champion and winning the Spanish league and cup, the European Super Cup, and the Club World Cup.Luis Su·rezsuspendedBARCELONA, Spain (AP):Barcelona striker Luis Su·rez was suspended yesterday for two Copa del Rey matches for insulting rival players.The referee’s report for the heated match at Camp Nou that ended 4-1 for Barcelona on Wednesday said Su·rez insulted Espanyol players in the tunnel after the match.Referee Juan Martinez Munuera’s report states that Su·rez told Espanyol’s players: “I am waiting for you. Come here. You are trash.”The ban will rule the Uruguay striker out of the return leg set for next week at Espanyol’s stadium and possibly the first leg of the quarter-finals.last_img read more

Wolmer’s, St George’s in mega clash

first_img With regards to the game been pushed back, Reynolds said they welcomed that decision. “We would have been aware of the situation that we had three games in four days. We have been doing what we can in order for the players to recuperate for each game. It is difficult for the schools that are still in the Super Cup with the tight schedule of games,” Reynolds also said. In the opening game, both teams will look to rebound from their losses last Thursday, and stay in contention for a semi-final spot. Haile Selassie and St Catherine met in the preliminary stage twice with each team winning 1-0. It’s left to be seen if the off-the-field issues involving coach Geoffrey Maxwell with whom they parted ways last week will affect Haile Selassie. They are yet to hire a new coach. St George’s College and Wolmer’s will be engaged in a mega clash in the ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup competition Group K today at Constant Spring Complex. Match time is 3 p.m. The game is the feature in the group’s double-header as Haile Selassie High face-off against St Catherine in the opener at 1 p.m. The games were originally scheduled for Monday, but was pushed back due to the constant usage of the venue. Wolmer’s and St George’s come into the game on three points apiece, however, Wolmer’s hold the advantage with a better goal difference. The game is crucial to both teams as a win for either would put that team into a good position to win the group and advance to the semi-finals. Wolmer’s will be playing their third game in five days, following their 3-0 win against St Catherine High last Thursday and their elimination of Kingston College (1-0) in a FLOW Super Cup quarter-final game last Saturday. The Vassell Reynolds- coached team has built a reputation for its meagre defence and incisive counterattacks, a threat that their opponents will have to be wary of. St George’s College are coming off a come-from-behind 2-1 win against Haile Selassie in the group last Thursday and are fully aware of the importance of today’s game. Marcel Gayle, assistance coach of St George’s College is expecting a tough encounter. “The game can decide the group. It is one of those games that no team can afford to lose,” Gayle told The Gleaner yesterday. He also said that although Wolmer’s will be playing three games in four days, it could work to the Heroes Circle based team’s advantage. “Winning can be a momentum for Wolmer’s. We will be prepared and hopefully finish the game with a victory,” he added. Reynolds, however, has a different outlook, arguing that his team will face a rested St George’s College, which he considers a big challenge. “We need to win the game to put one foot in the semi-final. We want to put things in our own hands. St George’s is still a favourite as they have a good team. They will be fresh and that is a challenge, but our team is ready for the game,” Reynolds shared.
