Norton willing and ready to assist Commonwealth Games-bound athletes

first_imgAS Guyana prepares for another appearance at next year’s Commonwealth Games, Minister of Social Cohesion, who also holds the responsible for Sport, Dr George Norton, pledges help to enhance the country’s chances of winning medals at the event.Norton, speaking at last weekend’s Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) Meeting of the Americas and Caribbean, stated his mission but also noted that time is of the essence since the Commonwealth Games is five months away.“My mission is to increase Guyana’s medal tally and ranking in the shortest possible time (and I want) to ensure that our athletes are given the necessary support to represent Guyana effectively,” Norton noted during his address.The minister will be put to the test immediately, with Guyana’s Sevens Rugby team preparing for the Rugby Americas North (RAN) Sevens Championship in Mexico, November 25-26.Guyana team are known for their dominance in the Sevens format, having won seven regional titles; the most by any Caribbean team under the RAN umbrella, and Guyana Rugby Football Union (GRFU) had stated that while retaining their title is priority, qualifying for a number of other international tournaments is also key.This year’s RAN Sevens Championship is a qualifier for the 2018 Central American and Caribbean Sports Organisation (CACSO) Games, 2018 Hong Kong Sevens, Rugby World Cup Sevens 2018 and Commonwealth Games.Should the ‘Green Machine’ finish on top as expected in Mexico, they will make their second appearance at the Commonwealth Games. Guyana for the first time, in 2010, qualified for the Commonwealth Games, which was held in India.FLASHBACK 2002! Guyana’s Aliann Pompey waves to the crowd after winning the women’s 400m in a time of 51.63secs in the City of Manchester Stadium during the XVII Commonwealth Games.In 2010, the Bharrat Jagdeo-led Government of Guyana had contributed $5M to the GRFU to help prepare the team who were unsuccessful to secure a win against eventually winners, New Zealand, Scotland, Canada and Tonga.Guyana have participated in 16 Commonwealth Games, with their first being in 1934, when the games were hosted in Hamilton, Ontario Canada, when it was known as the British Empire Games.Phil Edwards, in 1934, won Guyana’s (then known as British Guiana) first gold medal at the Commonwealth Games. Winfield Braithwaite, in boxing, won the country’s second gold medal at the 1978 Games in Edmonton, Canada.It was not until the 2002 games in Manchester England, that Guyana won another gold at the Commonwealth Games, thanks to Aliann Pompey’s exceptional run in the women’s 400m.It was also Guyana’s lone medal win at the event that year. Pompey was also Guyana’s lone medal winner at the games in 2010, winning silver in the 400m.Guyana, in total, won 15 medals in their 17 showings at the games – three gold, six silver and six bronze – and with the Guyana Olympic Association (GOA) already beginning preparations for Guyana’s showing at the games in Australia next year, it will be interesting to see how Minister Dr Norton responds to the athletes’ request for assistance.The 2018 Commonwealth Games, officially known as the XXI Commonwealth Games and commonly known as Gold Coast 2018, will be held on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia between April 4 and 18.last_img read more

If you put bigger guys on him he’s able to pop and get off shots.”TIP-INSMagic: F Aaron Gordon (sore left ankle) did some work on the court before the game, but sat out for the second night in a row. … G Elfrid Payton (strained left hamstring) did not play after being injured Friday at Brooklyn.

The Iowa Hawkeyes are No. 3 in the AP Poll and No. 4 in the Coaches’ Poll, and Iowa State may be back on the rise after a big home win on Monday night against Kansas. After the game, governor Terry Branstad made his way to the Cyclones locker room. There, he was convinced to hit “the dab,” which is still a dance that people are doing.I’m a bit disappointed that they didn’t get him to “run off on da plug twice,” but its probably for the best.last_img read more

Victorias Secret show tumbles to lowest ratings

first_imgNEW YORK — As a television event, the Victoria’s Secret fashion show appears headed for the remainder bin.The show has been buffeted by bad publicity, bad reviews and now bad numbers. Shown on ABC on Sunday after several years on CBS, its audience of 3.27 million viewers was the smallest since becoming a holiday season TV event in 2001. The Nielsen company said the show has lost more than half its television audience in two years.The runway-style show of models in underwear was hurt when the company’s head of marketing said in an interview that it would not include transgender or plus-sized models because Victoria’s Secret was selling a fantasy. The company later apologized.In a review, the Washington Post said the show was “too boring to even argue about.”The Associated Presslast_img read more
