first_imgThe renewal of Javier Eraso with Leganés (will continue to be blue and white until 2022), leaves Alexander Szymanowski, captain of the cucumbers (31 years old) as the only Lega-owned footballer to end his contract this season, is on June 30 or later depending on what the Covid-19 pandemic dictates. Its continuity south of the capital is, right now, an unknown factor, although after five seasons with Madrid residents, his options to continue in Butarque are getting smaller.The Hispanic-Argentine wants to renew. This is how he transmitted it in the locker room and also to the environment of a club that already knows that the footballer would be happy to continue wearing the cucumber shirt. With the laurel’s shield, Szymanowski is a legend. He is one of the two survivors of the squad of promotion that remains in the team. The other is Bustinza. Until last November he was the club’s top scorer in Primera with ten goals. One of them, in front of Athletic in San Mamés in 2017, he gave the first stay to Madrid residents. In the elite. The wardrobe wants and appreciates it. “Alexander is a captain, a true captain. Hopefully both he and Eraso will stay”, said Rubén Pérez, another of the captains in a recent interview. The renewal of the Navarrese has already occurred. It remains to be seen with Szyma. The problem of injuriesWith him his problem has been injuries. On December 9, 2017, in Riazor, he played his last match in good physical condition. Since then, he has accumulated a rosary of ailments that have kept him away from the playing fields except in sporadic periods. Last season he was able to play 10 minutes from the last day, but he wanted the misfortune that, two and a half months later, occurred a broken crusader in preseason that still keeps him on the dry dock.The potential lengthening of the season could give him the opportunity to play this course, something that would have been difficult if he had followed the normal rhythm. Despite this, the footballer’s physical condition raises many doubts. No one is clear in Butarque when he will return and under what conditions. Hence, for now, the option of its continuity is not contemplated with optimism.In any case, it is not ruled out either. The scenario of unknowns that is drawn around Leganés (in which category he will play, what his economic potential will be, etc.) means that nobody closes the door to the extreme left, one of the most charismatic and historical footballers of the Blue and Whites’ club.last_img read more

first_imgPier Luigi Cherubino faces his second year in the highest Spanish category. The Argentine saved last year the Passion fruit after Toni Ayala’s health problems. He saved Tenerife and in Christmas Betis called him to replace Antonio Contreras in front of the team, which he has already removed from the descent. Pier spent 17 years in Spain passing through Tenerife, Betis, Sporting or Zaragoza. He is the veteran of the bench. The great revelation has been Gerardo García. In front of the Logroño, where he finished his career as a footballer, has La Riojans rubbing shoulders with best in category.

first_imgPogba has not played a game since Boxing Day and has only played a total of eight this season. In recent days, the French footballer has been involved in a controversy with Graeme Souness, a former Liverpool player, whom he said he did not know. Souness replied: “Put your titles on a table, I have a great table.” For years he has been one of the biggest critics of French: “Maybe one day he will be the footballer we hope for, but time passes and I’m still not convinced. “ Bruno Fernandes, Manchester United footballer, has come to the defense of his teammate Paul Pogba. “In soocer, people always forget if you play well when you have a mistake. You can do well for 34 games, which if you then have a bad game they will always remember. Paul is coming from a bad time. When playing, the team was not in a good situation. Expectation is always high with him because he is a top footballer and Manchester United paid a lot of money for it. It is normal. Everyone expects from Paul what they expect from Cristiano Ronaldo or Messi. Everyone expects this from Paul in Manchester because he has qualities for it. This is also confidence for him and we have a lot. “last_img read more

first_imgHave you always played as a midfielder?At first, he played as a second striker or playmaker. But we soon made him a midfielder, which I think is the position in which Dani has always performed best. He started to change because he was having trouble doing that defensive work and seemed to be doing it at a slower pace. Ángel López, the former Contra coach in Romania and many other places, also helped him a lot. He also worked with Míchel. We had him as a physical trainer one day a week and that served Parejo a lot when he made the leap to Madrid.He was talking about his rhythm. There are people who have confused that with apathy …Honestly, if there is anyone who thinks that, it is that they have not had much knowledge of the game. Each one has its characteristics. Parejo always stood out for making his team play and for that cold blood. That has taken him to the highest level.Even, the second starting from the right in the bottom row, with the Coslada fry. Go live in Coslada …You can not even imagine. It was a constant pilgrimage of scouts and reps every time we played. That was atypical and I have never seen it again. That follow-up they did was not normal. Word of what Parejo was doing spread and many people came to see us. I remember there were scouts who called me at home the night before a game to see if I was going to put him in eleven or not to come the next day to see him.Why Madrid?He bet heavily on him. He went ahead of everyone. He spoke to his father formally and Dani opted for Madrid. It was not easy because I have a very good relationship with his father and he had a lot of representative cards, from all possible agencies. I insist, I have not seen a boom like that with Parejo. Did he have a goal as a child?Yes. He was always good at fouls and the stopped ball, in addition to shooting from outside the area. Almost all the balls that fell in the vicinity of the area ended in a goal.Did he rehearse a lot?He was sick with soccer. He was pissed off after training if you didn’t stay rehearsing penalties and fouls. We had to call his attention to go to the locker room because he always stayed with the doorman.Did you already have personality?A lot, like now. I have always said that he was the defender of lost causes. He had a very strong personality and was very aware of his peers. That leadership has led him to the elite.What exhibition do you remember?We beat Atlético, who was coached by Sabas. He made an incredible match. He dominated the game as he wanted and Atleti was unable to take the ball from him.After leaving Coslada, did you track him down?Yes. Madrid did well. In addition, the support given by Di Stéfano was definitive. He said he was the greatest talent La Fábrica had given in recent years. That put him even more in the window.Even, seated and the third from the left, with the Coslada cadet. From what Parejo says, not much has changed in terms of football …No. It has the same characteristics as then. The last time I saw him at Mestalla, he caught my attention. It was against Atlético last season. Marcelino was the coach and I saw him drop to the ground twice to steal a ball and he seemed to me a more sacrificed player. But that change came in handy and Marcelino brought out the best. I thought I had lost some conditions to win in others, but the talent was still there. Then, I saw that trot so peculiar that it has always had.At first it cost …It is like Curro Romero. There are people who find it difficult to assimilate their football.In Valencia its best version has been seen …It takes many years to the highest level. I’m glad because Valencia has always been my second team. My mother was Valencian and now, with Dani there, I have a special affection for that club.Are you still in contact with Parejo?Yes. He is a charming boy. I have his shirts. I have gone to see him several times in Valencia and whenever we have needed his help he has been there. In fact, we recently asked him for a video for the kids and he showed a lot of predisposition. I suppose that Dani will also be grateful because in his day we bet on him being a modest club. Where do we start?Well, I will tell him that I trained Dani for two years and he always made a difference, in fry and cadet. At Coslada, we bet on it and we upgraded it. He always played with people older than him and it never showed. It caught everyone’s attention. He had a tremendous following. Sevilla, Liverpool, Atlético, Madrid came to see him … Dani was a confessed Atlético.last_img read more

Powell eager for javelin attention

February 10, 2020 | lpjxbyhj | No Comments

first_imgJamaica’s reigning men’s national javelin record holder Orrin Powell wants the country to take notice of his talent as he seeks to become one of few Caribbean men to represent their country successfully in the event.The 24-year-old final-year student at the G.C. Foster College of Physical Education and Sport improved the national record to 75m earlier this season.Powell has been working with coach Marlon Gayle, who is also a lecturer at the Spanish Town-based institution since 2012.Gayle told The Gleaner that his charge wants eight metres to make the Olympic-qualifying mark, and he is confident Powell will be able to make the standard.The athlete, however, feels that he has a lot more to learn on a technical level and hopes to use each stage as a building block to throw even further.”Javelin is not really a Jamaican sport and something they prepare the youngsters for from a tender age, but since 2009, I started throwing.”I didn’t compete at Champs. I used to throw shot put, discus, and so on, and do long jump, ’cause I was well-rounded, but I wasn’t a name at Champs,” Powell told The Gleaner.”I actually started throwing Javelin at G.C. Foster College in 2012, and I have made some significant improvements. In one year, I moved from 51m to 70.3m,” he said.HARD WORK, DEDICATIONPowell said with hard work and dedication he moved from 70 to 75 metres, adding: “I am hoping to be the second Caribbean athlete to throw over 80 metres like Keshorn Walcott (Trinidad and Tobago).”Walcott is the London 2012 Olympic gold medallist in the event.According to Powell, there has been next to little feedback since breaking the national record.”No one has approached me in terms of making certain steps forward or to say that’s good,” he reasoned.The athlete, while keeping an eye on the qualifying standard for the Olympic Games in Brazil this Summer, says his main focus is ensuring that he will be readyin time for next year’s World Championships in London.last_img read more

first_imgMUMBAI, India (CMC):Under-fire West Indies off-spinner Sunil Narine has been retained by Kolkata Knight Riders for the upcoming Indian Premier League season despite currently being banned from bowling in international cricket.The 27-year-old Narine, a key member of KKR’s squad over the last several seasons, was banned by the International Cricket Council last November after his action was found to be illegal.He had been reported by umpires following the third One-Day International against Sri Lanka in Pallekele earlier that month.Despite this, KKR have opted to retain the Trinidadian ahead of the new IPL season, which runs from April 9 to May 23.This is against the backdrop of a move by the West Indies Cricket Board to bar Narine from playing in the domestic one-day championship set to bowl off Thursday.In announcing Narine’s suspension last November, the ICC said the player would be banned from bowling in all domestic tournaments internationally but would be allowed to play in Caribbean events, with permission from the WICB.Franchises retain 5 WI playersNarine is one of five West Indies players to be retained by their franchises for the new season.He is joined by all-rounder AndrÈ Russell, who will again suit up for KKR, while champions Mumbai Indians have also retained the pair of Kieron Pollard and Lendl Simmons.Big-hitting opener Chris Gayle has been retained by Royal Challengers Bangalore, but West Indies Twenty20 captain Darren Sammy had no such luck as he was dumped by the franchise.All-rounder Dwayne Bravo will turn out for Rajkot, one of two new franchises debuting in the new season.Rajkot, along with Pune, replaces the suspended Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals.last_img read more

first_imgWESTERN BUREAU:Call-ups for five Montego Bay United (MBU) players to the national squad in preparation for the Reggae Boyz third-round fixtures in the 2016-2017 Caribbean Cup have delighted club officials.The club’s front line trio of Dino Williams, Owayne ‘Turtle’ Gordon (on loan to Indy Eleven of the North America Soccer League), and Alan Ottey, along with defender Ladale ‘Bully’ Richie and team captain Dwayne Ambusley were recently invited to join the new-look Reggae Boyz unit, as the Jamaica Football Federation, still smarting from the country’s failure to advance to the final-round World Cup qualifiers looks to shake things up.”The five players from the champion club are testimony of what we have been doing,” Sandra Christie, MBU’s operations manager said.She said that the history that MBU represents, especially in the past five seasons – copping two national league titles on the back of three consecutive finals appearances – is testament of the direction of the club.MBU, in recent seasons, have also been strong contenders in the Caribbean Football Union championship.

first_imgPerformances are snapshots of what is learnt combined with all the factors affecting us at the same time. Performance levels go up and down constantly, depending on how we feel, the weather and interactions with other people. Everyone competes at different levels. The higher the level, the more important these factors become. Therefore, how well you perform in an event or any sport will depend on the following factors. ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS PHYSIOLOGICAL FACTORS Skill – the more skilful you are, the more likely you are to perform well. Fitness – once the physical fitness components are satisfied, the performance will be better. Physique – You will perform better at an activity that suits your Somatotype (ectomorph, mesomorph, endomorph) Age and gender – if an activity depends on strength and speed, the performance will be better at 25 years than 40 years. However, for some activities such as golf age is less important than experience. Age and gender (whether male or female) affects your capacities. Natural physical capacities begin to deteriorate sometimes at age 25. Body composition: Carrying extra weight (excess fat) is not good for performance. Illness and injury – Injury and illness can ruin performance. It is best to stay away from too much activity while nursing an injury, otherwise, it will only get worse. Diet – Diet affects health, which in turn will affect your fitness. What and when you eat before an event will also affect your performance. Drugs – Some drugs improve performance in short term but have long-term damaging effects. Athletes can be banned for using performance-enhancing drugs. Socially accepted drugs such as alcohol and cigarettes impair performance. Personality – Some sports suit some personalities (introvert, extrovert). Everybody has their own distinctive character formed as a result of complexes unique to them and their personal history. Your performance will be better in a sport thats fit your personality. Motivation – This involves a sense of purpose, commitment and determination which comes from whithin (intrinsic). Every performer needs this to do well. Sometimes the motivation comes from without (extrinsic) and must be valued by the performer for it to have an effect. Arousal – There must be a general mental preparation to action, which is focused and sustained at the optimum point at which the performance is at its very best (‘psyched up’). However, it is important to remain in control and not to pass the optimum level (psyche out) where performance declines under pressure (stress, worry, self-doubt, anxiety, etc.). Stress – Any stressful situation ( injury, family issues etc… ) or reasons other than participation in the activity is likely to impair performance. PSYCHOLOGICAL FACTORS Weather – If the weather is hotter, colder, windier or more humid than you are accustomed you won’t perform to the best of your ability. Changes in weather may lead to change in tactics. Altitude – At high altitudes, the air is thinner, so less oxygen is taken in with each breath. If the body is not adapted to this condition, you are likely to become breathless and dizzy. However, whereas long-distance events are difficult to perform at high altitudes, performance in sprinting, jumping and throwing events are enhanced. Playing surface and equipment – performance can be affected by equipment used and surface performed on. The need for special equipment can prevent some people from taking part, thus restricting their opportunities. Equipment changes as technology influences the design and materials used for increasing durability and performance, e.g. boots are lighter and more flexible than before, Running shoes provide more support and protection in the ability to absorb and disperse shock. If you are used to performing on one type of surface, there can be a dramatic change in performance levels if you have to adapt suddenly to another. The body and mind affect each other, and the environment affects both. Therefore, combined, will tremendously impact performance. If they are all at their best, optimum performance will be achieved.last_img read more
