Jamaican newcomer Muir lands double at Northlands

first_imgEDMONTON (CMC):Rookie Jamaican reinsman Shamaree Muir rode a handsome double to make his first real mark on the new Northlands Park season here Saturday.In his first season at the western Canada racetrack, the 21-year-old won with favourite Big in the Game in race one, and returned to score with 7-1 chance Keene on Demand in the day’s final race, to move to four wins from 29 rides this season.Six-time former champion Barbadian Quincy Welch, leads with 10 wins, one clear of Jamaican Dane Nelson with four-time defending champion Rico Walcott fourth on seven wins.Muir, a two-time former champion apprentice in Jamaica, opened his account when he made all the running with four-year-old filly Big in the Game, to beat the three-year-old and upward fillies and mares which have never won three races.Going six furlongs, Muir broke the filly sharply and stormed through the half in 46.62 seconds to be a whopping seven lengths clear.The pair was in total command in the stretch and reached the wire 4-1/2 lengths clear without a challenger in sight.Muir pulled in his second win on the seven-race programme with another daring gate-to-wire effort as he trounced the three-year-old and upward maidens by 6-3/4 lengths.He put the five-year-old bay gelding through fractions of 22.85 seconds for the quarter and 46.85 for the half before drawing away at the quarter pole to dominate the stretch run.last_img read more

Indonesia Drug Executions: 8 More Nigerians to Die

first_imgAlbeit the stream of pleas from the international community, the government of Indonesia is set to send more foreigners, including eight Nigerians to their early graves.This is according to a report from the United Nigerians in Diaspora, an umbrella body of Nigerians living outside the country.The group at a press conference in Lagos May 5, gave the names of Nigerians waiting to be executed as Michael Titus Igwe, Kingsley Okonkwo, Uchenna Onyewuru, Eugene Ape, Hunphery Ejike, Obinna Nwajiagu, Benjamin Onuoha and Ikenna Abanukwu.While briefing newsmen, chairman of the group, Mr Pascal Okolie called on Nigerians to enjoin the international community to stop the executions.He said: “Considering that the next batch of execution will take place in no distant time in Indonesia, we urge the good people of Nigeria and our government to rise up with the entire world to stop further executions of Nigerians. “Enough of the killings. Nigeria should leverage on the strong bilateral relationship it has with Indonesia and negotiate to stop the execution of the eight waiting to be killed. “In as much as we totally condemn drug trafficking and wish to sensitize intending traffickers on the consequences that awaits offenders, we also condemn capital punishment especially since it has not been able to quell the issue of drug trafficking in Indonesia.” Mr Okolie also decried the challenge posed by the language barrier which makes it difficult for the accused persons to defend themselves effectively.He accused the Nigerian embassy in Indonesia of neglecting her citizens in Indonesia, saying that “most times Nigerians are thrown into prisons for more than four months without anyone knowing about it. “The way a government treats its citizens, is a reflection of how the citizens are likely to be treated in foreign lands. Therefore, we feel it is high time our government rose to the occasion to ameliorate the plights of its citizens no matter the circumstance. “Therefore, we feel it is high time our government rose to the occasion to ameliorate the plight of its citizens. We expected our government to show concern just like other countries whose nationals were involved. He finally beamed the light on youth whom he encouraged to beware of the kind of friendships they keep as well as activities they engage themselves. “One of the reasons there are many young Nigerians in prisons in different countries of the world today, is due to get rich quick syndrome, fast track. But in the end, they lose everything including their lives,” he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Man United want the man who signed Griezmann as their director of football

first_img Gerrard launches furious touchline outburst as horror tackle on Barisic sparks chaos BEST OF scrap 4 tense Griezmann was signed by Berta, and has become one of the best players in the world 4 How Everton could look in January under Ancelotti with new signings latest Manchester United are keen to appoint Atletico Madrid transfer guru Andrea Berta as their first ever director of football in a huge restructuring move.Tensions between executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and manager Jose Mourinho have only intensified as the Portuguese extends his tenure in charge of the club. The failure to land a marquee centre-back has left Mourinho in a precarious position and turned fans against Woodward.However, signing the Italian Berta would represent a huge step in the right direction for the club and would go a long way to easing their relationship.According to the Evening Standard, Berta is the top target for the new role and they hope to complete a deal before the end of the calendar year.The 46-year-old was appointed as sports director last year at Atletico having been the technical director for four years. Former Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur transfer maestro Paul Mitchell – now at RB Leipzig- has long been a contender. Failing that, Juventus’ Fabio Paratici has also been recommended.Leonardo Bonucci, Paolo Dybala, Paul Pogba and Arturo Vidal all arrived at the club during his tenure, and the Italian has a penchant for snapping up world-class players for bargain transfer fees. Green reveals how he confronted Sarri after Chelsea’s 6-0 defeat at Man City silverware 4 Berta (R) has helped Atletico sign and keep some of the best players in the world Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT 4 England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won The average first-team salaries at every Premier League club in 2019 predicted revealed gameday cracker However, Woodward decided to stay in control of transfers himself – something he has done himself since 2013.Although the world record signing of Paul Pogba was seen as a personal triumph, there have been many big names who have opted to move elsewhere.Failed moves for Cesc Fabregas and Gareth Bale five years ago meant only Marouane Fellaini joined the club in the summer of David Moyes’ ill-fated reign.Should the Red Devils fail to sign Berta, there are currently three other leading contenders. Liverpool news live: Klopp reveals when Minamino will play and issues injury update During that time, he oversaw the signings of Jan Oblak and Antoine Griezmann, and successfully orchestrated a deal to bring Diego Costa back to the club.This summer, he beat a host of top European clubs including Liverpool and Arsenal to the signing of Thomas Lemar from Monaco.Berta also played a huge part in ensuring Griezmann and Diego Godin signed new deals at the club.The Italian was linked with a move to Old Trafford before. In 2016, United chiefs considered bringing him to the club when they appointed Jose Mourinho as Louis van Gaal’s successor. Including the signing of former United hero Cristiano Ronaldo this summer, Paratici also brought Dani Alves, Patrice Evra and Emre Can to the Bianconieri for nothing.He is so highly-rated in fact, it is reported that the Old Trafford hierarchy want him more than Roma superstar Monchi, widely recognised as the best in the business in the role.

Hardest part was saying goodbye

first_imgBREAKING: Cop killed, 11 hurt in Misamis Oriental grenade blast Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. But the pain did not last long.“10 minutes,” Lazo said, drawing laughter from the group. Fuentes did a mock-reenactment of the scene: “I was like huhuhu (crying).” And then the awarding ceremonies came and everyone “was happy,” recounted the bubbly midfielder.“After a while, when we were able to recover from that final whistle and then you see the girls crying and broken, we told them there’s nothing to be ashamed of with your performance,” said Benitez. “You can walk into the pitch with your held head high.”The sadness they felt when they had to go their separate ways, however, would last a little bit longer.“We were together for five weeks or more,” said Zalamea. “So it wasn’t easy to say goodbye. Especially since some of the girls were from the province and some were from America.” ADVERTISEMENT “They’re like family na and I wanted to stick with them forever,” said Lazo. “In the last day we were crying. It was so sad.”“It’s hard to say good bye to people who are the first ones you see when you wake up and the last faces you see before you go to sleep,” said Fuentes.The girls had built camaraderie the same way really special teams do: Stay together in success and failure. Bond through activities that help fight off the ennui that sometimes settles on “away” teams between games and practices. Building memories together.And there were lots of memories. Fuentes recalled “doing homework” and “applying face masks and cucumber patches during 10-hour layovers.” There were several activities: Team-building, singing on bus rides, queuing at buffet tables. And of course, the memories on the pitch were aplenty.“I’ll always remember that Myanmar game, when Mirya scored the goal and we were finally in the final,” said Torres. “That felt good.”Even the coaches carry moments they will always miss.“The routine,” said Dillera. “Waking them up early in the morning and making sure they’re tucked in bed before 9 p.m.”After all, for the coaches, it was suddenly like having children of their own—teenagers at that—to take care of.“I think we skipped the whole cute part,” laughed Benitez. “It was a lot of fun being with them. There were days when they were extra makulit and the coaches had to put their foot down. But with this batch of coaches, we could be as playful as the kids and we could be serious.”And the kids loved their coaches. Pagasa: Storm intensifies as it nears PAR LATEST STORIES “They tag along sometimes and sumasama sa kalokohan,” said Zalamea. “They take care of us really well.”“They guide us. They are our inspiration,” added Torres. And they’re ready to jump on any chance to get together as a team again. After all, the team has a goal. If they stay together long enough and train together hard enough, they just might be able to plant a foot in the U17 women’s World Cup.And that may not be such a far-fetched dream.“You know you did something good, something right, when the goodbyes are longer than the training sessions,” said Benitez.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Oakley holds charity game for young golfers Lacson: SEA Games fund put in foundation like ‘Napoles case’ BREAKING: Cop killed, 11 hurt in Misamis Oriental grenade blast View comments Every 18 seconds someone is diagnosed with HIV MOST READ Palace: Duterte to hear out security execs on alleged China control of NGCP BSP survey: PH banks see bright horizon amid dark global recession clouds “The last day,” said midfielder Martina Torres.Torres and her teammates—midfielders KC Zalamea and Any Fuentes and striker Maria Lazo—along head coach Marielle Benitez and assistant coach Elyo Dillera were recent guests of Sports IQ, the Inquirer’s omni-platform live sports talk show, where they talked about their journey to the finale of the U15 tournament.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutAfter coming back dramatically to beat Myanmar in the semifinals, leaning on a goal by Mirya Garcia with four minutes left in the match, the young Malditas ran into a Thailand squad that flaunted superior quality and a marked improvement from the squad the Philippines nearly upset in last year’s U14 finale.The pain of a 6-2 defeat in the finale was real.
