ON the weekend of November 25-26, over 20 archers from across the Caribbean gathered in Barbados for the 2nd Annual Barbados Olympic Association’s Independence Invitational Games.The tournament was hosted by the Barbados Olympic Association (BOA) in association with national sporting federations to commemorate Barbados’ 50th Anniversary of Independence at two different locations: Coverlet Terrace, Bridgetown, and Codrington College, St. John, Barbados.Teams competing were from Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, Martinique, Guadeloupe and Guyana.Guyana was represented in its first regional Archery tournament by Archery Guyana’s member Dwayne Grovesnor.Competitors shot over 3 000 arrows throughout the event, in both Recurve and Compound men’s and women’s categories. The tournament commenced with 12 rounds consisting of 6 arrows in each round during heavy rainfall and the unpredictable wind conditions.At the end of the first day, Guyana’s Grovesnor and Trinidadian Lallo were the only two not securing a bye thereby having to compete against each other.Their set wound up to a score of five-all which then called for an exciting one-arrow shoot-off. Guyana shot a nine which meant that Trinidad needed a 10 to take their specific match but luckily for Guyana, they did not secure this so Guyana moved forward to face Martinique.Unfortunately, however, Guyana’s Grovesnor was unable to secure a win against Martinique to join Trinidad in the finals. Martinique won 6-0, with scores of 24, 24 and 25 as compared to Guyana’s 7, 12 and 23.The exciting Final was between Trinidad & Tobago and Martinique, while Guyana faced Barbados in the third-place game.Guyana started off leading in the first set but the Bajans came back to tie at two. After a cat-and-mouse game, with scores being levelled after every round, the scores reached 4. Regrettably, in the final set Barbados took the set and therefore won the bronze medal by one point.Martinique emerged the gold medallists as they thrashed Trinidad and Tobago 6-0.
Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 31, 2014 at 3:53 am Contact Matt: email@example.com | @matt_schneidman In fifth grade, Rasheed Sulaimon’s parents made him sit out of an Amateur Athletic Union game. Angela and Kenny Sulaimon didn’t hold him out because of an injury. He didn’t get in trouble at school. He even had A averages in all but one of his classes.But Sulaimon had a B in math.“Rasheed knew that if he received a B+,” Kenny Sulaimon said, “he shouldn’t settle for that good grade.”He was always a bright kid, but with five siblings, a mother who emigrated from Jamaica and a father who emigrated from Nigeria, things weren’t always easy for him and his family. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSulaimon still faces challenges as a sophomore guard at Duke. But with the help of Blue Devils assistant coach Jeff Capel, along with the values instilled in him by his parents, Sulaimon has been able to overcome obstacles on and off the court.This season he’s faced one of his hardest tests yet — trying to work his way back into Duke’s core after falling out of it — and is keeping his same positive outlook. Even though being held out of a fifth grade basketball game perplexed a young Sulaimon, he acknowledged that his parents simply wanted to set a standard of excellence for him.“Just like in basketball, being a ‘good’ player is sometimes not good enough,” Kenny Sulaimon said. “You should work on the skills that will help you become a ‘great’ player.”The Sulaimons weren’t the wealthiest of families. But Sulaimon said as long as he showed his parents he was giving nothing short of 100 percent, they’d reciprocate and put all their effort into transporting him to workouts, getting him to games and paying for him to travel.“My parents did a great job of supporting me,” Sulaimon said. “ Both of them humble me, having come from foreign countries. They’ve always told me not to take anything for granted.”Kenny Sulaimon mentioned how he and his wife raised all six of their children to support one another and that their family is very tight. He said that Rasheed is very close with his brother and four sisters. When Rasheed wasn’t playing basketball, he was attending his little sister’s volleyball matches.“We raised our children to work hard and value the opportunities,” Kenny Sulaimon said. “We take the time to make sure we help our children understand how fortunate they are to live in the United States.”Sulaimon adopted these morals, maximizing his academic and athletic potential at Strake Jesuit High School in Houston. He was highly recruited by major schools, eventually committing to Duke over UNC, Arizona and Baylor. In his freshman season with the Blue Devils, Sulaimon started 33 games, averaging 11.6 points and 3.4 rebounds. He was also named to the ACC All-Freshman team and the All-ACC Academic Team.But then things changed.Three freshmen came in, a transfer was now eligible and a senior stayed for a graduate year.In 10 games from Nov. 15 – Dec. 28, Sulaimon failed to amass more than three made field goals in any contest. He didn’t even see the floor in a 10-point win against Michigan on Dec. 3.As Capel explained, his senior season at Duke almost mirrored Sulaimon’s early-season predicament this year, which is why he’s been able to mentor him through the struggles.Capel averaged 19 points in the conference and 16.6 on the year one season, but found trouble hitting that stride the next. “You just assume next year those numbers are going to be the same, maybe a little bit more,” Capel said of his junior season with the Blue Devils. “Now all of a sudden when I’m a senior and you have more guys, you can look bad. I think that’s one of the things that happened to Rasheed.”Capel noted that Sulaimon didn’t come into the season in ideal shape, and this, in addition to the newcomers, provided for an obstacle.“Rasheed had to change a lot of things,” Capel said. “It certainly knocked him back, but he’s stayed the course. I think he’s grown up a lot with how he’s handled it all.”Through these struggles, Sulaimon said Capel has been a tremendous influence, as he was the first one to reach out to Sulaimon to help him get back to playing at a high level.Against Virginia on Jan. 13, Sulaimon dropped 21 points, including the game-winning 3 with 19 seconds left in a 69-65 victory. Said Sulaimon: “I just had to keep my head up and know that God won’t put you through anything you can’t get through.” Comments
As dominant as the USC men’s tennis team has been lately, its all-time 92-2 record against Arizona is even more impressive.Daily TrojanThe Trojans (18-2, 4-0) will look to build on their 11-match winning streak and continue their dominance over Arizona in Saturday’s Pac-10 match.Coming off dominant back-to-back 7-0 victories against Oregon and Washington, No. 2 USC welcomes No. 55 Arizona to Marks Stadium. The Wildcats (8-11, 0-4) are coming off losses to California and Stanford.The last time Arizona beat USC was in 2006, when it defended home court with a narrow 4-3 victory.With only three more matches scheduled before the Pac-10 championships and NCAA tournament, the Trojans understand they need the right mindset going into today’s match.“We’ve got to have the right attitude, not overlooking [Arizona] or thinking it’s going to be easy,” said senior captain Jaak Poldma.Although it might be easy to look past Arizona and its record, the Wildcats boast an experienced squad that features seniors Andres Carrasco, Geoff Embry, Jay Goldman and Borja Malo.The Trojans, however, counter with Poldma and juniors Steve Johnson and Daniel Nguyen. Along with these upperclassmen, USC’s freshmen have played pivotal roles in the team’s success this season.“It’s been a good year so far,” Poldma said. “A lot of guys, freshmen, have stepped up and matured and taken over roles.”With an undeniable bevy of talent in Johnson, Poldma and freshman Ray Sarmiento, who has won all of his singles matches when he was not injured, USC looks primed to make another late postseason run.“Everything that is most important is still in the way,” Poldma said. “It doesn’t really matter how you play in the season until the NCAAs.”First serve is at 12 p.m. Saturday.
I’m disgusted and I’m sure much of the rest of the Trojan faithful are as well. Of course, the culprit of this this bad taste in my mouth is once again, the hypocritical institution that is the NCAA.I don’t even think that ESPN analyst Stephen A. Smith has enough four-syllable words to describe my repugnance for the NCAA’s abhorrent actions and dialogue.I couldn’t believe some of the things I read while sifting through the hundreds of pages of documents stemming from the 2011 defamation lawsuit brought by former USC assistant coach Todd McNair against the NCAA, which were finally unsealed and made public on Wednesday.At least now we know the reason why the NCAA had their lawyers fight so hard over the years to prevent all of these confidential emails, memos, interview transcripts and other records from being unsealed.A couple of my professors, who both happen to be USC alumni, were so appalled that they even brought up the subject matter for discussion in my business law and accounting classes.The audacity that Shep Cooper, who was simply a liaison to the NCAA’s committee on infractions, had to call McNair a “lying, morally bankrupt criminal” with absolutely no grounds and using that as justification for why he shouldn’t be coaching at any level is absolutely ludicrous.In a memo to the members of the committee on infractions, Rodney Uphoff, the NCAA’s coordinator of appeals at the time, wrote that the evidence in the case against USC is “markedly stronger than in the Oklahoma City bombing case, which was built entirely on circumstantial evidence.” He even went on to claim that there was no direct evidence that Terry Nichols, who set a Guinness World Record after being convicted of 161 counts of first-degree murder, was ever involved in the bombing plot.Uphoff also claimed in an email to Roscoe Howard, who sat on the committee, that he had lost sleep because he feared that the committee would be too lenient.I would lose sleep, too, though if I held the belief that a serial murderer may have been innocent, though not because a prestigious institution was going to possibly get off easy for not controlling its players.Let’s remember that all of these people mentioned above had no voting power.As seen from their statements above, however, they seemed to have an agenda to make an example out of both the Trojans and McNair.The two NCAA staffers compared McNair and USC to a convicted felon, and in turn, the school was unfairly treated as if it also were sitting on trial for first-degree murder.These fallacious conceptions arose from attempts to basically influence the jury, which, at the end of the day, was the committee.I’m not a legal expert, but it’s my understanding that in a court of law, it is unlawful for any outside source to unduly influence the jury.Nonetheless, it’s considered an act of misconduct when jurors allow the wishes or beliefs of an outside source to influence their decision-making.Based on the type of communication in these documents, it’s apparent that this type of misconduct definitely took place leading up to the committee’s final decision.Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Frederick Shaller echoed this message after ruling in November 2012 that the NCAA was indeed malicious in its investigation of McNair.I’m not certain about the rules and protocol that the NCAA follows in these investigations, though if something is for certain, it’s that USC was unfairly tried and fell victim to the personal bias of several NCAA employees.If there’s something we learned on Wednesday, though, it’s that the NCAA has always been the true criminal throughout this whole saga. And thanks to the courts, I’m glad that the rest of the nation is now finally able to see excerpts of this criminal activity in ink.The tables surely have turned and oh, the irony of it all. The NCAA cited USC for its lack of institutional control, but after reading these documents, it actually seems like it’s the NCAA who needs to be put on a leash.I’m sure that the USC Office of Athletic Compliance — perhaps the best in the nation at what it does — would gladly offer its assistance, though. At least, we can thank the NCAA for something.The sanctions are now something in the past, but no one will forget the way the NCAA treated USC throughout this entire process.The fact that the Trojans’ punishment was handed down almost five years ago and we’re still having these conversations is an exact representation of that.If anything, McNair should be seen as a USC hero, for if he had never filed his suit in 2011, most of us would have never been exposed to the specific acts of wrongdoing committed by the NCAA.Though USC and its fans now have some closure regarding everything that took place, I believe that this party is only getting started. Now more than ever, the NCAA’s credibility is being put into question, and it might finally be time for its member institutions to take a stand.Darian Nourian is a junior majoring in print and digital journalism.

Accra Hearts of Oak coach David Duncan has told JOY Sports he will not be leaving the club now that the season has ended.This goes to dispel all speculations that the former Ashgold trainer was unhappy with the former African champions and wanted to quit.It was widely rumored towards the end of the 2012/2013 premier league season that the outspoken coach was frustrated at not receiving enough support from management of the Phobia fraternity and thus hinted at moving.But Duncan, who is credited with the turnaround of Hearts Oak, leading them to a fifth place finish, told JOY Sports “I am with Hearts of Oak, I am going nowhere. How many times do you want me to reiterate this? I am going nowhere.”The 2012/2013 season’s top scorer, Mahatma Otoo with 20 goals emerged from David Duncan’s side and the coach believes “Mahatma Otoo deserves more than praises for his goal scoring techniques. Mahatma is simply unbelievable.“Words just can’t describe how he takes his goals. These are goals that belong to the sophisticated European leagues, typically for some selected few players in Europe. But he’s been able to display something like that here and that shows his class. He should nick the best player award and any award in that category.”
After a few more relatable Zoom shenanigans from both teams, the episode ends with McVay’s unwavering policy on proper port-a-potty etiquette.How have HBO’s featured teams fared?The Rams are being featured on ‘Hard Knocks’ for the second time since 2016. The Chargers will become the 11th new NFL team featured on “Hard Knocks” over 15 seasons. Of all the individual teams appearing on “Hard Knocks” in any given year since 2001, only five have followed up by making the playoffs that season. Here’s how each team’s season went after its appearance on the show.YearTeamRecord2001Baltimore Ravens10-6*2002Dallas Cowboys5-112007Kansas City Chiefs4-122008Dallas Cowboys9-72009Cincinnati Bengals10-6*2010New York Jets11-5*2012Miami Dolphins7-92013Cincinnati Bengals11-5*2014Atlanta Falcons6-102015Houston Texans9-7*2016Los Angeles Rams4-122017Tampa Bay Buccaneers5-112018Cleveland Browns7-8-12019Oakland Raiders7-92020Los Angeles Rams?????2020Los Angeles Chargers?????*Made playoffs There will be no NFL preseason games in 2020, but there will still be another season of “Hard Knocks.” Despite new safety measures in place for NFL training camps because of COVID-19, NFL Films’ documentary series is back for a 15th television season on HBO.This time, for the first time, two teams will be featured — the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers. The two teams’ L.A. training camp stories will share the spotlight ahead of the teams starting play in their new joint venue, SoFi Stadium, for the 2020 NFL regular season. So “Hard Knocks” is going bigger, but will it be better? On the surface, the Rams and Chargers are far from the league’s most compelling teams as borderline playoff contenders. With the entire preseason schedule wiped out, however, “Hard Knocks” will be the NFL’s only televised action before the Week 1 opener, helping their cases.The Rams have lost some star power since their Super Bowl 53 run. Their most intriguing camp battle on the field is at running back, where rookie Cam Akers is trying to succeed Todd Gurley. They also have one huge defensive presence in Aaron Donald and a huge defensive personality in Jalen Ramsey. Coach Sean McVay’s smart-talking offensive mind also should provide a few gems.The Chargers are undergoing a quarterback transition with their coach, Anthony Lynn, as Tyrod Taylor takes over from Philip Rivers with rookie first-round pick Justin Herbert waiting closely in the wings. They have some good offensive skill around QB, but like the Rams, their two brightest stars are on defense, Joey Bosa and Derwin James.The “Hard Knocks” film crew and editors will need to figure out how to get the best out the 18-time Emmy-winning series over the next several weeks.

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn opens with the first of several Zoom meetings featured in the episode, delivering an impassioned speech about how his team will handle the challenges of the coronavirus and win big this season. At his home, Lynn shares the story of how he met his wife, Stacy, while showing off his grilling skills. Rams coach Sean McVay then gets his turn in his own mansion, where he quarantined comfortably with his fiancee Veronika and his dog Callie. McVay shares how he coached Callie to do ball tricks around the pool a la Air Bud.McVay’s new star wideout, Cooper Pupp 🐶#HardKnocks pic.twitter.com/Ls7EzkAjG6— NFL Films (@NFLFilms) August 12, 2020Cut to the team facilities for player COVID-19 testing, where Chargers cornerback Casey Heyward Jr. has a more difficult time than his teammates and Rams tackle Aaron Donald isn’t a huge fan of blood draws. McVay is introduced to a plastic face shield and is amused by using it and mocking himself for it. He makes sure his team is aware of the Marlins’ mistakes and calls on the Rams to stay within their “ecosystem.”Narrator Liev Schreiber says this “training camp is unrecognizable” as we see Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen fully black masked. Lynn talks about game-planning for COVID being more difficult than game-planning for the schedule.Rams cornerback Donte Deayon explains how he’s trying to get to the “suburbs,” making the team with his own fancy locker, a status enjoyed by Pro Bowl position mate Jalen Ramsey. Ramsey then gets his ‘Hard Knocks’ version of a hype video as a “money player” before he gets annoyed by local media asking him about his contract negotiations on Zoom.Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa is seen signing his lucrative new deal. In a emotional moment, Bosa sheds a few tears when opening up about what it was like to share the news with his father John, a retired NFL player.Cut to the establishment of the Chargers’ quarterback “battle”, where Tyrod Taylor is the presumed starter over rookie first-rounder Justin Herbert. Herbert comes in fresh faced with a lot to learn. He is then seen acing some “target practice” with his throwing arm.Lynn tells Chargers team clinician Dr. Herb Martin how he tested positive for the coronavirus in the offseason. Lynn experienced soreness and body aches, but didn’t think he might have the virus until he saw a golfer pull out of a tournament with the same symptoms. Lynn admits it made him “feel like an outcast.”After Lynn gives his players the freedom to react to the national anthem however they want this season, some join a Zoom call with assistant coaches and an outside consultant to better learn about social justice initiatives.Discussions like these happening all across the league. #BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/TsFJtselAp— NFL Films (@NFLFilms) August 12, 2020The first player from either team to test positive for COVID-19 is Rams rookie linebacker Terrell Lewis. He is forced to quarantine away from the team facility for 10 days.As the Rams and Chargers start making cuts to get down to 80 players, Lynn and Chargers general manager Tom Telesco are surprised by tight end Andrew Vollert’s profanity-laced reaction to his release, despite the fact he was a clear odd man out on the depth chart. Lynn jokes with Telesco that the thought of “you ain’t Antonio Gates” crossed his mind.
CHAMPIONSHIP side Charlton are reportedly set to make a move for Troy Parrott with the hopes of taking the striker in on loan.Parrott has found playing time tough to come by under new manager Jose Mourinho despite star striker Harry Kane facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines.1 Troy Parrott could be set for a Championship moveAnd the Daily Star are now reporting that the striker could be set for a loan move to the Addicks.Despite making his Premier League debut under Mourinho, Parrott has not made the squad in recent weeks with a loan move for regular first team football beckoning.Boss Mourinho has been outspoken saying in December that the youngster still needs more time to develop.TIME TO DEVELOP”Parrott is a 17-year-old boy that played five minutes in the Premier League and we’ll give him more time.”He needs more time to develop.”POTENTIALHe said a month later.“I think he has potential. I think he needs to work a lot. He has a process to go through, a process that probably Tanganga had.“One thing is 17 and another thing is 20. We are speaking about three years of distance and three years.“Ok in Tanganga’s case it was three years without a Premier League match, but it was three years or working and playing, playing in his age groups, playing in England national team (youth games), which also gave him some experience.PART OF IT“Then with me it was just the last part of his preparation before he had his first opportunity.“I think Troy has to go through a process. Can he have minutes? Yes he can minutes.“I’m not saying he’s not able to have minutes, but to put on his shoulders the responsibility of replacing somebody to be replaced, I don’t think he’s ready at all.”Parrott, who made his debut in the Carabao Cup against Colchester under Mauricio Pochettino, has made one appearance under Mourinho when coming on against Burnley in December.MOST READ IN SPORT THROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battle’I ACCEPT’McGregor accepts Silva fight at UFC catchweight of 176lbs in huge super-fightTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedA CUT ABOVEMike Tyson shows two-inch cut ‘picked up in training’ ahead of boxing returnPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidThat came after he made his Ireland debut from the start against New Zealand though he was kept in reserve during the must-win Euro 2020 qualifier with Denmark that was drawn.He has been an unused substitute since, against Bayern Munich in the Champions League and Middlesbrough in the FA Cup.But Kane’s injury has not led to an opening.
