La Liga fans get dream Experience

first_img HAPPY TO SEE A WIN Palache was also thrilled with the result as Real Madrid came away 1-3 winners courtesy of goals from Isco, Lucas Vazquez, and his idol, Ronaldo. Osasuna’s top scorer, Sergio Leon, had levelled the scores going into the interval to ensure that it was a competitive match. “Hala Madrid! I got to watch Ronaldo play live, and he scored and did the celebration. What more could I ask for?” Palache said. “It was just great, and I got to sit down in the VIP box and see Florentino Perez (Real Madrid FC’s President) and also Osasuna’s president (Luis Sabalza).” As for Sharpe, she was most impressed with the atmosphere and how hospitable the Osasuna staff was. “The experience was great! We got to tour the stadium and met very nice people,” Sharpe said. “The Osasuna staff was just great. They were welcoming and very friendly.” Palache, who, when he had first found out he was winner of the competition, which is into its second year and sees SportsMax team up with the world’s most star-studded football league, La Liga, thought it to be a prank and is still in awe. “It still seems like a dream, but it came true for real, and I am grateful,” he said. “This couldn’t have happened without SportsMax and La Liga, so I really appreciate it.” – R.J. Pamplona, SPAIN: SportsMax’s La Liga Experience winner Calvin Palache got the VIP treatment on Saturday as he and his guest, Tishana Sharpe, watched Real Madrid take on host Osasuna at the El Sadar Stadium in Pamplona Spain. But in addition to watching the match live, the two were in for several other surprises along the way, which left them with memories to be cherished for the rest of their lives. The duo got official Real Madrid jerseys, which were later signed by several first team players, as well as Osasuna jerseys with their names printed on the back. “The highlight was seeing the Real Madrid players up close. CR7 (Cristiano Ronaldo) signed my jersey and also Sergio Ramos and Marcelo. I got 12 Real Madrid players’ autographs,” a beaming Palache said.last_img read more

Anderson steals day two of Carifta Trials

first_imgVere Technical’s 16-year old hurdler Britany Anderson was the star performer on yesterday’s second and final day of the Carifta Trials held inside the National Stadium. She raced to a World Youth leading time of 13.21 seconds, in a negative wind of 3.2m per second, to win the Girl’s Under-18 100m hurdles event. Anderson who has been creating quite a storm this season in the event and who posted a fast 13.18 seconds, also in negative wind at the Youngster Goldsmith Development Meet, defeated a quality field. A first year Class 2 athlete at the ISSA-GraceKennedy Boys and Girls Championships, Anderson got a perfect start to win, going away from Manchester High’s Daszay Freeman. Freeman, the defending Class 2 champion in the event, was second in 13.44 seconds, with Holmwood Technical’s Shanette Allison, the bronze medallist in the event at Champs a year ago, finishing third in 13.54 seconds. It was a sweep of the hurdles events for Vere Technical athletes, as Amoi Brown was also impressive in winning the Under-20 event. Running in a negative wind of 1.0 metres per second, Brown controlled the race early to win impressively in 13.33 seconds. Getting back to good form, it was second for Wolmer’s Girl’s athlete Janeek Brown in 13.52 seconds, with Edwin Allen High’s Gabrielle McDonald taking third in 13.57 seconds. It was also a clean sweep by Calabar High in the sprint hurdles, with World Under-20 representative Dejour Russell leading the way. A fourth place finisher in Poland last year, Russell got one of his best-ever starts to win the Boy’s Under-18 110m hurdles in 13.31 seconds, running in a negative wind of 0.8m per second. Kingston College’s, Wayne Pinnock finished second in 13.71 seconds with Oquendo Bernard finishing third in 13.80 seconds. OUTSTANDING RESULTS Russell’s teammate Orlando Bennett (13.86) got the better of his former teammate Alex Robinson of Wolmer’s Boy’s, second in 13.90 seconds to win the Under-20 event, as Philip Lemonious of Jamaica College got third in 14.02 seconds. There were also outstanding results in the 400 metres led by IAAF World Under-20 representative, Christopher Taylor of Calabar, who had a sub 46 seconds clocking. Running out of lane four, Taylor, competing in the event for the first time this season, was out of the blocks very fast and controlled the race throughout to win in 45.41 seconds. Kingston College’s Dashawn Morris ran well for second in 46.67 seconds with third going to Malik Smith of Bridgeport High in 47.39 seconds. Antonio Watson captured the Boy’s Under 18 event in 47.08 seconds ahead of Ramone Lindo of Vere in 47.18 seconds, with third going to Jevaughn Powell of Edwin Allen in 47.26 seconds.last_img read more

Table tennis bouncing back in Trelawny

first_img Tennis association’s goal That is in line with the goal of the national table tennis association to have 15,000 people playing the game. As the Trelawny play-off competition spun along, he envisaged, “It is a view to build a nucleus from which we can build on for national teams or other parish teams.” Apparently, there are encouraging signs that the Trelawny table tennis revival is gathering support. “People are catching the vision and there are people recognising that table tennis is important and can be a vehicle for stemming crime and violence in Trelawny, especially among youngsters”, he said. In fact, the play-offs were to be followed by a weekend training camp at the Melia Braco Hotel in Rio Bueno. The schools contesting the play-offs were Westwood High School, Holland High School, William Knibb Memorial High School, Troy High School, Albert Town High School, Cedric Titus High School and Muschette High School. Lawrence believes the cooperation that made the play-offs possible will lift table tennis in Trelawny. “We’re now developing a network that can build table tennis … and build sport in general,” he noted. In a final recommendation for the game, Lawrence invoked its value to practitioners of other sports. “Sir Garfield Sobers and Viv Richards would say that their pastime was table tennis”, he observed, “because it builds your reflex, and we want to use this now to build other parts of the discipline called sports.” Trelawny, the parish that gave Jamaica its only female Caribbean table tennis champion, is pushing the sport again. The renewed table tennis energy is two-fold. According to Trelawny Table Tennis Association president R. Raymond Lawrence, the goal is to produce champions again and to encourage many more to play the game. Speaking at the recently held parish team play-offs in Falmouth, Lawrence explained, “The vision is to see a champion coming from Trelawny again, Trelawny being the captain of table tennis.” The reference linked to a famous past when Anita Belnavis won the Caribbean singles title in 1977 and placed second in the CAC Games the following year. She later formed a strong pairing with Aldith Ellis that made Trelawny a powerhouse in the sport. Lawrence wants to bring those days back, but in addition, he wants to increase the opportunities for the public to play. “If I want to play football, I can go play anywhere”, he reasoned, “If I want to play cricket, I can find a team, but if I want to play table tennis, I cannot. “I want to fix that”, he said. “That is my vision,” Lawrence continued. “Somewhere persons can go and just play table tennis just for the fun of it.”last_img read more

StGC team manager found dead

first_imgThe Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) of the Jamaica Constabulary Force has said that it is investigating the death of St George’s College (StGC) track and field team manager Peter Brooks as a possible suicide.The CCU said, in a statement, that Brooks, of Dewsbury Avenue, St Andrew, was found slumped over the steering wheel of his vehicle in the Liguanea area on Thursday.The statement said that the Matilda’s Corner Police reported that residents in the area said that they heard a shot at around 10 that morning, before discovering his body with a gunshot wound to the head.The Gleaner reached out to StGC officials, but all calls to their numbers went unanswered.Adrian Wiltshire, a friend of Brooks, said that he is in disbelief about his passing.”I’m no physician, but Mr Brooks never came across as the type of person who would take his own life, because he valued life,” Wiltshire said. “He was always encouraging, and I’ve always know him to be a helpful person to everyone. He always had a quote to instruct positively in every situation.”Wiltshire said he last spoke to Brooks on Wednesday and he seemed to be in what he describes as a “lively” mood, as they were having a jovial discussion about St George’s participation in Champs in March. He said that from that, he would not have figured that Brooks was dealing with any serious personal matters.Brooks had been the North Street-based school’s team manager since the summer of 2002 and had taken a leave of absence before the start of the ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships last month.He was 54 years old.last_img read more
