Twenty-one year old wheelsman, Romello Crawford is the only Guyanese cyclist who will be competing in the 2018 Central America and Caribbean (CAC) Games and is poised to make his presence and country felt when he takes to the track. Crawford, who hails from the ancient county is expected to head over to Columbia this week but prior to that, he is currently training in Trinidad and Tobago.Trinidad and Tobago is the most economical means of training for track racing since Guyana is yet to see any remote plans of developing a velodrome.The lack of this continues to pose a problem for riders trying to develop their natural skills. Nevertheless, The PSL/Trojan rider in an interview with Stabroek Sport, related that it has been three years since his preparation started in this division of the sport.“Every year since 2015 I have been doing this [track race] in Trinidad,” Crawford said, noting that he has been involved in the Easter Grand Prix hosted by the twin island republic.Crawford added that he has gotten points on the track, qualifying him to compete in the event but due to the amount of energy taken on this division he will most likely not participate in the road race, if it is dated close together. “If I could do road I will need to see the dates because track takes everything out of you.” Crawford said.Despite the hurdles of not having track and the expense to travel overseas and train, Crawford has raced the 250 metres twice and the 500 metres a few more times.Crawford explained that he is currently working on bringing his fitness level to a higher standard in order to make his mark. The young cyclist will travel to Columbia along with Joseph Briton as the two lone representatives for cycling and as part of Guyana’s largest contingent to the CAC games.
Related Cem Ozdel/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images(VANCOUVER) — Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called on partners to maximize pressure on North Korea and combat the regime’s attempts to evade international sanctions.Sitting beside his counterparts from Canada, Japan and South Korea, Tillerson told top diplomats assembled in Vancouver, British Columbia, for a global summit on North Korea that they are sending a “unified message” to Kim Jong Un’s regime: “We will not accept a nuclear-armed North Korea.”He urged nations to fully enforce the three United Nations Security Council resolutions from last year that increased sanctions on North Korea, specifically calling on Russia and China to comply.The two nations were not invited to the summit, known as the Vancouver Group, because they were not part of the original U.N. Command Sending States — the countries that provided troops and supplies to U.N. forces to defend South Korea in the Korean War. Allies like South Korea, Japan, Sweden and India were invited to the summit.“We cannot abide lapses or sanctions evasions,” Tillerson said. “We will continue to call attention to, and designate, entities and individuals complicit in such evasive actions.”Tillerson also called for the improvement of maritime interdiction operations to “put an end to illicit ship-to-ship transfers that undermine U.N. sanctions,” as well as “new consequences” to be imposed on the regime “whenever new aggression occurs.”North Korea launched 15 ballistic missile tests and conducted one nuclear test in 2017, but has yet to conduct a test in 2018.Though Russia and China were not invited to Tuesday’s summit, Tillerson did acknowledge that North Korea’s nuclear weapons threat has joined nations that “were once enemies,” specifically China and the U.N. Command Sending States, with a common goal to denuclearize the Korean peninsula.“The sending states stand shoulder to shoulder with China, with the Republic of Korea, with Japan, with Russia — and is joined with the entire international community in saying to the regime in North Korea that we cannot and will not accept you as a nuclear state,” he said.Tillerson rejected the “freeze for freeze” approach, in which military exercises would be suspended in exchange for North Korea halting its ballistic and nuclear weapons tests.He also specifically talked about the threat North Korea’s ballistic missile tests pose to civilian aircraft.Tillerson mentioned that individuals on a Nov. 28 flight from San Francisco to Hong Kong last year witnessed part of a North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test in the sky — 280 nautical miles from where the missile landed in the Sea of Japan.According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), nine other flights were within that same range, he said.“Over the course of that day, according to the Department of Defense, an estimated 716 flights were due to pass within that same range,” Tillerson said. “The FAA says the total available seats on those 716 flights was 152,110. That’s a lot of people from a lot of countries being put at risk by irresponsible testing of ballistic missiles.”ABC News first reported last summer that an Air France jet with 323 people on board flew past the location where a North Korean ICBM would land in the Sea of Japan less than 10 minutes later.“Based on its past recklessness, we cannot expect North Korea to have any regard for what might get in the way of one of its missiles, or parts of a missile breaking apart. This is to say nothing of potential technological errors associated with a launch that could result in disaster,” Tillerson said. “Of course this is hardly the only threat, or the likeliest threat, posed by North Korean missiles.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Donegal’s 2012 All-Ireland winning manager Jim McGuinness has emerged as a surprise contender to take over at Galway United. McGuinness indicated back in January that he would focus on a coaching role after leaving his role as assistant coach to Chinese Super league club Beijing Sinobo Guoan for what they describe as “personal, family reasons”, and today the Irish Sun is reporting that he is in the frame to succeed Shane Keegan in the hot-seat. Keegan left Galway by mutual consent during the mid-season break. McGuinness spent five years with Glasgow Celtic before joining the Beijing club under coach Roger Schmidt. The 45-year-old recently completed his UEFA A Licence and has made little secret of his desire to become a manager. It comes on the back of a proposed takeover by two Saudi Arabian businessmen of the club which was accepted by the supporters Co-Op last week.print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email

Kennedy in 1963, the Presidential Medal of Freedom is bestowed upon those who have made an “especially meritorious” contribution to US security or national interests, world peace, cultural pursuits or other non-specified endeavors.President Trump (R) congratulated Woods on “your amazing comeback and your amazing life and for giving sports fans a lifetime of memories” © AFP / Brendan SmialowskiIt has been awarded to nearly three dozen sports figures including golf legends Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer, honored by president George W. Bush.President Barack Obama gave the medal in 2014 to Charlie Sifford, the first African American golfer to play on the PGA Tour.During his speech, Woods praised Sifford who he said was “like the grandpa I never had.”“I ended up becoming so close with him that I ended up naming my son Charlie after him,” he said. “So to have been chosen as the next golfer after Charlie is truly remarkable.”Woods’ Masters was his 15th major title, leaving him just three short of the record held by Nicklaus.Woods, a black superstar in a white-dominated sport, has steered clear of commenting on politics during his career.He has golfed with Democratic presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama and with Republican presidents George H.W. Bush and Trump.He has hit the links with Trump on several occasions, most recently in February at the president’s course in Jupiter, Florida.Woods was asked last year about his relationship with Trump, who has been engaged in an ongoing feud with a number of African-American basketball and football stars.“Well, I’ve known Donald for a number of years,” Woods said. “We’ve played golf together. We’ve had dinner together.Woods said the important thing was to respect the office of the presidency, regardless of who happened to be occupying the White House.“No matter who is in the office, you may like, dislike personality or the politics, but we all must respect the office,” Woods said.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000President Donald Trump presents Tiger Woods with the Presidential Medal of Freedom at the White House © AFP / SAUL LOEBWASHINGTON, United States, May 7 – Tiger Woods, fresh off his epic comeback victory in the Masters, was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Donald Trump at the White House on Monday.Presenting the golfing great with the nation’s highest honor, Trump praised Woods’ “relentless will to win, win, win.”
Derek and Gareth Peoples of Tullyannon, Carrigans are set to host a Knowledge Transfer (KT) farm walk hosted by Bord Bia and Teagasc.This walk on Friday 28th September is part a series of farm walks held around the country designed to highlight the benefits of Quality Assurance (QA) Schemes and provide guidance on QA audit compliance to farmers.Previous events in other parts of the country have attracted up to 400 farmers. Mick Houlihan, Bord Bia Quality Assurance manager commented: “Irish farmers who are part of Bord Bia’s Quality Assurance (QA) scheme and Origin Green play a critical role in meeting the demands of food buyers and consumers for assurances around traceability, sustainability and animal welfare.”As well as providing insights into Bord Bia’s Sustainable Beef and Lamb Assurance Scheme (SBLAS) audit, the walks will cover farm safety, Origin Green at farm and international marketing levels, and information on markets for Irish beef and lamb.Mick Houlihan continues: “Involvement in quality and sustainability schemes really gives Irish farmers an edge and a connection with consumers. The commitment shown by Irish farmers to Bord Bia’s Quality Assurance Schemes and Origin Green is a vital component in positioning Irish food as a premium product in international markets.”Farm walk attendees will receive a Quality Assurance Information Booklet, which will clearly outline what is required of farmers to pass their SBLAS audit, and will provide tips on how to accurately complete records and avoid some commonly made errors. Teagasc advisor, Ruth Fennell said “This walk gives farmers the opportunity to ask questions, addressing issues they may have around their audit, for example, in common fall-down areas such as animal remedies and record-keeping.”This a Knowledge Transfer (KT) event approved by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.Events details:Date: Friday 28th SeptemberTime: 3 to 5pm.
