FILE PHOTO: Asbel Kiprop Paris, France | AFP | Kenya’s former Olympic and world 1500m champion Asbel Kiprop has vowed to fight on to clear his name after being handed a four-year suspension on Saturday for using the banned blood-booster EPO.The 29-year-old failed an out of competition test in November 2017 and was provisionally suspended in 2018.On Saturday, the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) upheld that ban, concluding that the case had been “convincingly made out” despite an “a la carte menu of reasons why the charges should be dismissed” from Kiprop’s representative.After the verdict, Kiprop continued to maintain his innocence.“The decision is not only a blow to me, but it is not good for the sport of athletics,” Kiprop told AFP.“I have been insisting that I did not dope,” he said. “I will continue to maintain my innocence, even if this decision now means I will not be eligible to run again for the next four years.“It’s sad that the world will believe that I am guilty of taking the performance-enhancing drugs and yet I have been at the forefront of fighting doping in the sport.”The AIU said in its statement that Kiprop had “at various times and various formats…proposed a number of possible explanations” for the positive test.It went on to state that at the hearing his representative, Katwa Kigen, presented an “a la carte menu of reasons why the charges should be dismissed.”Among these, the AIU said, were that the “EPO was naturally produced due to intense exercise at altitude,” that it was produced by medication, that the test, or the analysis, was badly conducted or that the sample was spiked. His ban is backdated to last February.The AIU statement added that while Kigen presented his arguments with “tenacity and charm” the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) representative Ross Wenzel had argued that “none of the various reasons proposed…when subject to strict scrutiny had any plausibility.”The three-man panel agreed.It concluded that high altitude could not explain the presence of EPO in the test and that Kiprop had produced no evidence to support the other possible explanations.Kiprop accepts the long ban virtually puts an end to a long and illustrious athletics career, but he can still appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.He originally came second in the 1500m final at the 2008 Beijing Olympics but was upgraded when Rashid Ramzi tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug and was stripped of the gold medal.A total of 138 Kenyan athletes have tested positive in anti-doping campaigns since 2004.In 2016, Kenya were placed on the list of countries under IAAF surveillance.And it was only after the adoption of a new anti-doping law just before the Rio 2016 Olympics that the country was removed from the list of “non-compliant” WADA nations Share on: WhatsApp
Central Catholic’s quarterback Joseph Cosentino (16) drops back to pass during the first half of a PIAA high school Class AAAA championship football game against St. Joseph’s Preparatory in Hershey, Pa., Sunday, Dec. 15, 2013. (AP Photo/Ralph Wilson)HERSHEY, Pa. (AP) — Quarterback Chris Martin threw for a Class AAAA-championship record three touchdowns Sunday night to lead Philadelphia power St. Joseph’s Prep to a 35-10 win over Pittsburgh Central Catholic and its first PIAA football title at Hersheypark Stadium.Martin finished with 192 passing yards and the Hawks limited three-time state champion Central Catholic to less than 250 total yards of offense. Martin had two long TD passes in the second half as the Prep scored 28 unanswered points to seal the win.It is St. Joseph’s Prep’s first Class AAAA title.Vikings quarterback and Florida State recruit JJ Cosentino completed one pass before leaving in the third quarter with a leg injury. Central Catholic was just 1 of 12 on third-down conversions and finished the season at 15-1.“It’s amazing, the way we started the season with not a lot of seniors,” said Martin, a 5-foot-10 senior who completed 18 of 25 attempts. “A lot of people doubted us, but to come here and finish No. 1 in the state is just unbelievable.”The Vikings used Cosentino’s 1-yard plunge and Mitchell MacZura 29-yard field goal late in the second quarter to build a 10-7 advantage at intermission.But Prep linebacker Ryan McNulty and linemen Jake Strain, two defensive standouts, helped turn back Central Catholic’s opening series after the break.Martin made the most of his first chance in the second half, finding John Reid for a 59-yard scoring strike that put the Hawks ahead for good. The Prep pushed its lead to 21-10 just seconds into the fourth when Joe DuMond grabbed a perfectly executed back screen from Martin and raced 14 yards for a score with 11:51 remaining.The seven-play, 80-yard drive was extended by an ill-timed personal foul call on Central Catholic linebacker Niko Thorpe.“They just came out and took the momentum away from us in that first series, and they didn’t give it back,” Vikings head coach Terry Totten said. “Then we got a penalty and had a couple of injuries that added to the momentum that they created.”Central Catholic’s comeback bid was hampered by the losses of Cosentino and top rusher Luigi Lista-Brinza, who missed three drives with a leg injury down the stretch. Lista-Brinza finished with 129 yards on 22 carries.“We did it week in and week out. Our defense bowed up and didn’t break when it counted most,” said Prep coach Gabe Infante, who interrupted his postgame celebration with field a call from Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter. “I’m very proud of those kids. We played our game. We did what we do. We played great competition this season and that competition prepared us for this game.”Pittsburgh CC-St. Joseph’s Prep statsPIAA Class AAAA ChampionshipSt. Joseph’s Prep 35, Pittsburgh C.C. 10Pittsburgh C.C. 7 3 0 0 0 – 10St. Joseph’s Prep 7 0 7 21 – 35___FIRST QUARTER=SJP-Vince Moffett 27 pass from Chris Martin (Pat Walsh kick), 3:24PCC-JJ Cosentino 1 run (Mitchell MacZura kick), 1:06SECOND QUARTER=PCC-FG MacZura 29, 4:58THIRD QUARTER=SJP-John Reid 59 pass from Martin (Walsh kick), 9:37FOURTH QUARTER=SJP-Joe DuMond 14 pass from Martin (Walsh kick), 11:51SJP-De’Andre Scott 35 run (Walsh kick), 5:58SJP-Moffett 16 run (Walsh kick), 4:35___Team Statistics PCC SJPFirst downs 12 17Rushes-yards 45-191 28-125Passing yards 49 192Att-Comp-Int 3-9-0 13-21-2Punts-avg. 5-33.2 4-39.0Fumble-lost 3-2 2-1Penalties-yards 6-47 9-50___INDIVIDUAL STATISTICSRushing – Central Catholic, Luigi Lista-Brinza 22-129, Riley Redman 9-56, Devin Faloon 5-18, Cam Sutherland 1-18, JJ Cosentino 4-(minus-4), Graham Adomitis 4-(minus-16); St. Joseph’s Prep, De’Andre Swift 7-68, Olamide Zaccheaus 10-22, Vince Moffett 3-18, Chris Martin 6-10, Dillon DeIuliis 1-4, John Reid 1-3.Passing – Central Catholic, Cosentino 1-4-0_7, Adomitis 2-5-0_42; St. Joseph’s Prep, Martin 13-21-2_192.Receiving – Central Catholic, Lista-Brinza 2-19, Darnell Clemm 1-30; St. Joseph’s Prep, Reid 4-83, Zaccheaus 3-37, Moffett 3-33, DeIuliis 1-17, DuMond 1-14, Swift 1-8.NOTES: Two-way standout Vince Moffett, who hauled in Martin’s first TD pass, good for 26 yards, capped the scoring with a 16-yard touchdown run with 4:35 to play. … The Hawks picked up four sacks and recovered a pair of Central Catholic fumbles. … The title game and the Class AA championship were postponed on Saturday due to inclement weather.
Fittler was announced as Laurie Daley’s successor in Sydney on Friday morning with a two-year deal, beating former South Sydney premiership-winning coach Michael Maguire to the position.The Blues have lost 11 of the past 12 Origin series.The former Panthers and Roosters international has become adept in preparing teams in a short period of time given his accomplishments with City Origin and most recently with Lebanon in the World Cup.The NSWRL has opted against retaining a full-time coach and have decided to appoint Fittler on a part-time basis.Fittler has already been in contact with Andrew Johns and Phil Gould about involving them in some capacity during his time as NSW coach. Daley guided the Blues to one series victory in five years in charge before the NSWRL decided against extending his contract in the aftermath of their 2-1 series loss this year.The Blues spoke to Maguire, John Cartwright, Dave Furner and others before deciding on Fittler.NSWRL Chairman of the Board Dr George Peponis OAM said the Board had taken the appropriate amount of time to fully consider the issue.”A number of highly qualified candidates expressed an interest in the position,” Peponis said.”I have no doubt that any one of them could have done a great job if the Board had decided to appoint them. Ultimately, the Board was unanimous in the view that Brad Fittler should be appointed to the position.”Brad’s qualifications for the role are impeccable and his standing within the game is pre-eminent. His recent efforts in the Rugby League World Cup with Lebanon serve as a reminder of his talents as a coach and they provide a window into the exciting future which he will bring the New South Wales State of Origin team.”NWSRL CEO David Trodden said he couldn’t be happier for Fittler with the appointment.”In the last few years, [Fittler] has made a massive impression on everyone in the NSWRL with the work he has done with our KARI City Origin team and our pathways teams,” Trodden said.”He has achieved outstanding success with these teams and in reality, he has spent those years preparing for the role which he has now been appointed to. NSWRL is in for a great ride and sustained success in the next few years beckons.”Holden State of Origin Game 1 in Melbourne is on-sale and tickets are available at nrl.com/tickets.Tickets will be available for Games 2 and 3 on Thursday 7th December at nrl.com/tickets(Game 2 – ANZ Stadium, Sunday June 25th , Game 3 – Suncorp Stadium, Wednesday July 11th)
It is becoming too frequent now that young mothers, most likely in deep distress, are leaving their newly born on dumpsites or at hospital doors. We do not think it is necessarily a sign of maternal evil, even though one could call it that; but looking beyond what seems like the obvious, we should carefully think about what would drive a mother to dump or abandon her own infant. Teenage pregnancy is rampant today. Just last week a 16 year-old in the Daily Observer’s immediate neighborhood gave birth to her first child, a son. When we asked the young father what his intentions were, he talked of marriage, but said he had no job. We told him we observed that he had a business which his girlfriend was helping him with— up to the day she delivered—so he could develop his business to be able to support a wife and child.Perhaps it was the small business, the teenager’s involvement in it and the seeming commitment of the father that caused her to keep her baby. Otherwise poverty and an irresponsible mate could have driven this 16 year-old mom to desperation.Why? It is because there are too many poor people in this rich country of ours. And why do our people continue to live in poverty? One reason is because so many of the people in power or near power are so mean-spirited and selfish, with no compassion for their own people. They prefer to reach out to foreigners and give them EVERYTHING, including even allowing those who commit the ultimate abuse against our women—rape— to be released from prison and allowed to return to Lebanon even when these foreigners are convicted!Denying them justice is the horrendous (horrific, dreadful) extent to which some of our leaders go to demean, frustrate and harm their own people. In which country, we ask, will Liberians receive such unconscionably corrupt benevolence? There is none.As one drives to work daily, one sees our children, some as young as six, as well as our teenagers and healthy, able-bodied young men and women on the street wasting their precious energies selling chewing gum, candy and other totally insignificant imported items, when those of the appropriate ages should be on the farm producing food and other cash crops, or in school learning a trade, or productively employed in stores that instead prefer to hire foreign young people. Who says our own young people cannot be trained to do that same work these foreigners are doing in the stores? But if our officials and powerful people in and around government have a heart and mindset that favors foreigners against their own people, then our people will continue to live in abject poverty and we will continue to WASTE our human resources; driving our people to live desperate lives that compel them to leave their infants on people’s porches, at hospital entrances and at dumpsites.No one, of course, can accuse us of defending the criminal act of throwing away an innocent child. What we are trying to get our government, our leaders, the privileged and powerful in society—whether in government or on the fringes—to realize is that the Liberian people continue to live in abject poverty; and that they are, therefore, desperate.One of the comments from the crowd at the dumpsite where the infant was discovered last week said it happened probably because in this Ebola season in Liberia, it is difficult to get anyone into a hospital. We see what happened a week ago to a prominent Liberian academician and politician, who after suffering a stroke could hardly find a hospital to accept him. He died in his car! How much more a penniless mother, who was most probably a teenager. Our leaders inside and outside government, and Liberians in general need to develop not just the intellect and acumen to perform their work successfully, but LOVE and COMPASSION in their hearts for people, especially their own people.Remember compassion was the distinctive mark of the most powerful man who ever walked this earth—Jesus: He had COMPASSION for people. He went about healing the sick, giving sight to the blind, making the lame walk. And when He saw the 5000 who had been following him all day hungry, He had compassion on them and ordered His disciples to make them sit down. The willingness and determination in His heart to do something to help them prompted the Heavenly Father to respond positively. When all had been fed, there were 13 baskets of leftovers!When our people start loving and caring for their own people, the desperation will stop, and there will be plenty to go around and we all will be a well-to-do, safe, healthy, grateful and happy people.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The body of an 11-month-old baby was retrieved from a drain at Sayah Village, Cane Grove, East Coast Demerara (ECD) on Tuesday.The child, Alvin Matthew, of Lot 47 Sayah Village, was pronounced dead on arrival at the Mahaicony Cottage Hospital.Based on reports received, the child was at home with his mother, Parbattie Matthews, and his siblings in the lower flat of their house.However, it is believed that the child crawled outside and ventured into the yard where he fell into the drain.Shortly after, his frantic mother realised that the baby was missing and frantically began to look for him. After some time, the child was found lying face down in the drain, which is approximately 10 feet wide and three feet deep.The baby was picked up and rushed to the hospital, but it was too late. His body is at the Mahaicony Cottage Hospital Mortuary awaiting a post-mortem. Investigations are ongoing.
Andy Gray is urging Aston Villa to start their rebuilding job NOW by replacing Remi Garde.Rock-bottom of the Premier League, the Midlands club are sitting 12 points adrift of safety with just seven games to play.Gray insists there is zero chance of them pulling off a great escape, and says the Villa board need to act decisively and appoint a manager to prepare for the Championship.The former Holte End favourite, speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, said: “The Villa board now have got to make a massive decision.“It’s nothing against Remi but if I was sitting in there, I would have to say, ‘listen, we need to start planning for next year now’.“They’re going down. They need to get someone in to have a look at this group of players, sift through it, decide who to keep and who they don’t and then start in August when the Championship starts right on the front foot.“They must not appoint a manager two weeks before the start of the season and play catch-up all season. It has got to start now for Villa.”
