Agony and ecstasy as lifter Ri takes North Korea’s first Asian Games gold

first_imgView comments MOST READ Olympic silver medallist Agustiani, aged 24 and known affectionately as Yuni, hoisted 107kg on her first attempt at the clean and jerk.She tried and agonisingly failed twice to lift the 112kg she needed for victory despite the huge cries of “Indonesia, Indonesia” ringing around the Jakarta International Expo venue.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’Ri reemerged twice to attempt an Asian Games record and personal best of 117kg but departed in agony as her left knee buckled on both attempts and she had to be helped from the platform on one leg.A few moments later draped in the North Korean flag, the 20-year-old Ri’s pain turned to ecstasy as she received the gold medal and belted out the anthem of the secretive nation with tears streaming down her cheeks and dribbling from her chin.

Earlier in the opening snatch category Yuni had lifted 88kg and when Ri failed at 90kg it left the Indonesian with a slender lead as the packed arena erupted in support of their home heroine, believing an elusive gold might at last be hers.But the North Koreans, predicted to be dominant in weightlifting at these Asian games in the absence of China and Kazakhstan who are banned for doping, were not to be denied. Ri’s 199kg total proved enough with Yuni 4kg in arrears. Thailand’s feisty Thunya Sukcharoen took bronze with a 189kg total.Sri Lanka’s B.D.H Gomas was another reduced to tears after she failed three times at her opening weight of 67kg and sunk to her knees sobbing as her Asian Games ended almost as quickly as they started. Ri’s victory was watched by North Korea sports minister Kim Il Guk who told Korean media: “She did a great job.”“I’m very happy that I won the first gold,” said Ri after emerging from doping control with her left knee encased in an ice pack.The rising star, who came fourth as a teenager at the 2015 world championships, was cheered to the rafters by a large phalanx of supporters clad in unified Korea T-shirts. “I felt good because many people supported me,” Ri said.It left Yuni with yet another silver medal to add to those she won four years ago at the 17th Asiad in Incheon and again at the Rio Olympics two years ago and, crestfallen, she too was left in floods of tears.“I have lifted 116kg in training but today never felt like I could repeat it, no,” a still visibly upset Yuni told AFP after the medals ceremony, feeling that she had let her country down as Games hosts.ADVERTISEMENTcenter_img Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ Palace OKs total deployment ban on Kuwait OFWs 2019 SEA Games logo draws flak Gov’t in no rush to rescue animals in Taal Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?

GECOM Chairman has been seduced by Govt

first_imgDear Editor,First, President David Granger anointed Retired Justice James Patterson as Chairman of GECOM and then GECOM refused to hold General Elections, due by March 19, 2019, after the No-Confidence Motion was passed against the APNU/AFC Government, citing one lame excuse after another.This shows that the GECOM Chairman has been seduced by the APNU/AFC Government of President David Granger much like the AFC has been seduced by the PNC/R.I suggest that Guyanese start standing up for their rights and take to the streets. Let these wannabe dictators know that Guyanese do not want Guyana to regress to the dismal days of pre-1992.Affirmative action is needed to oust these wannabe dictators.Yours faithfully,Sean Orilast_img

AfricaRice Donates Compact Weather Station to CARI

first_imgAfricaRice has donated a compact weather station to the Central Agricultural Research Institute (CARI) for the recording and research in meteorology (weather forecasting).CARI is the research arm of the Ministry of Agriculture in Suakoko, Bong County.The equipment was installed in May and is intended to provide daily weather recordings of temperature, relative humidity, wind direction and speed and rainfall.The Africa Rice Center (AfricaRice), formerly known as the West Africa Rice Development Association (WARDA), is an African organization currently headquartered in Cotonou, Benin. It is an agricultural research center that was constituted in 1971 by 11 West African countries. Presently the center counts 24 African member states and since 1986, AfricaRice has been one of the 15 specialized research centers of the CGIAR.AfricaRice aims to contribute to poverty alleviation and food security in Africa through research for development. The organization is currently working with the Ministry of Agriculture through the West Africa Agricultural Productivity Project (WAAPP).CARI benefits from these interventions through the production and multiplication of improved rice varieties for Liberia. One of the major tasks of AfricaRice is the development and introduction of new rice seed varieties that are suitable for African conditions.In an interviewed with CARI team leader Mr. Aaron Marshall, he disclosed that Liberia is a member and works in collaboration with AfricaRice and as such the donation is part of the country’s benefit from AfricaRice.“Liberia is a member of AfricaRice so it’s Liberia’s benefit from the center and we also have three scientists that are helping CARI,” Mr. Marshall said.Meanwhile, in an interviewed with Mr. Marshall at CARI a few weeks ago he disclosed that 504 metric tons of seed rice was produced within two years.“At CARI, there are several streams of research going on. We are researching different varieties of rice that would take only 70 to 90 days to germinate to yield more varieties of rice,” he disclosed.He told the Daily Observer that following the deadly Ebola outbreak, a lot of work was done at CARI in that farmers in Lofa, Nimba and in other counties had produced more rice and other foodstuff.It is not strange that the huge donation from AfricaRice will boost the production and the activities of CARI in terms of research and at the same time ensure that farmers and consumers benefit from their own grown food.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Corentyne woman commits suicide

first_img– after another beating from her husbandThirty-year-old Christine Singh of Rose Hall Town, Corentyne consumed a poisonous substance on Saturday morning and consequently died soon after. Her death allegedly followed years of domestic abuse she had suffered at the hands of her husband.According to her mother, Sarojinie Singh, Christine had told her on FridayDeceased: Christine Singhafternoon that she was “going out,” but had promised to return home soon. After Christine had left home, Sarojinie said, she recalled that a parade was to going to pass on the public road on Friday night, and so she and her neighbour went out to view it.At about 19:30h, she witnessed her daughter being manhandled and assaulted by her husband in the vicinity of the “burial ground bridge” on the public road. The distraught Sarojinie noted that her daughter did not confide in her about this most recent beating she had received from her husband, as she did not return home that night.Sarojinie said she was in her kitchen sometime on Saturday morning when she heard her neighbour’s urgent call summoning her, and upon running to the front of her yard, she noticed her daughter vomiting continually while leaning against the fence. She said she rushed to assist her daughter, but by the time she was near her, the girl had already fallen in an unconscious state to the ground.Fearing the worst, she called a taxi – which arrived promptly – and rushed her daughter to the New Amsterdam Public Hospital, where she learned that her child had ingested a poisonous substance. Moments later, Christine Singh was officially pronounced dead by medical officials.Sarojinie told Guyana Times that several reports had been made to the police about the physical abuse her daughter had been made to endure at the hands of her husband; but, on numerous occasions, the reports had gone uninvestigated. This very distraught mother feels that if the police had acted on any of those reports, her daughter would not have been forced to take her own life. (Ramona Luthi)last_img read more

Then he put on number 17 at Sparta Prague.After his move to Stade Rennes of France in 2002, he wore number 34, but then switched to number one when he joined Chelsea in 2004.He also wore the number-one shirt in the Czech Republic national team, for which he played a record 124 games until his retirement in 2016.Cech is not the only Gunner to get a new number for next season — Elneny has swapped number 35 for 4, Granit Xhaka 29 for 34 and Hector Bellerin 24 for 2, according to the Arsenal website.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

LADIES FOOTBALL: SENIOR TEAM THROUGH TO LEAGUE FINAL ON MIXED WEEKEND FOR TEAMS

first_imgPIX: Gabrielle Gallagher: DONEGAL are a win away from returning to the National League Division One at the first time of asking after winning their semi-final play-off against a tough Westmeath outfit in Clones today.Davy McLaughlin’s side had been convincing winners over the same opposition just a few weeks ago, but there were always doubts over whether the Leinster side were really on show that day.And that proved to be the case as Donegal – who topped the table – faced stiff resistance this time around in the first half. Each side recorded just three scores in the opening period – but Donegal two goals and a point saw them lead 2-01 to 0-03 at the break.Whatever the Moville man said at half-time got the Donegal girls fired up and they eventually eased to a 3-10 to 1-04 victory, Yvonne McMonagle getting two of the goals with Amber Barrett also netting.They will now play Armagh in the Division 2 final in a fortnight’s time after the Orchard County recorded a 2-20 to 1-08 victory over Cavan.At Red Hughs today Cavan’s U16s saw off Donegal’s U16s in a very physical game in the Championship. The visitors led from start to finish in a game which saw a number of Donegal players injured.Cavan eventually won by eight points 0-11 to 0-03.The Donegal U14 Championship squadCavan also defeated Donegal’s U14s in the Championship as the local girls travelled to Templeport on Saturday.The well-drilled Cavan girls, who have been in development teams for six years, scored a goal after just 12 seconds and it took some time for the Donegal girls – making their championship debut – to settle.Donegal trailed by five points at the break and they put in a battling performance in the second half, were denied two clear penalty shouts and conceded two goals in the last minute to put a bit of a gloss on the Cavan win of 5-12 to 2-06. The girls host Tyrone next Saturday in Donegal – venue to be confirmed – needing a victory to progress in a Championship dominated this year by Cavan and Monaghan.The victorious U14 development teamThe U14 Development team continues to shine and the girls are an hour away from a final.The girls travelled to Kinawley on Saturday to take on Fermanagh and fought back from being down at half-time to win comfortably.Sabrina White’s girls now need a win over bottom-placed Armagh to set up a League Final against Down, a team they outplayed but ultimately lost out to in the first game of the season.

Men’s Basketball Returns To The Knapp Center To Face SDSU

first_imgStory Links Drake Game Notes SDSU Game Notes Live Video Buy Tickets center_img Live Stats Live Audio DES MOINES, Iowa – Forty-eight hours after a hard-fought loss to Iowa State, the Drake University men’s basketball team aims to rebound against South Dakota State on Monday, Dec. 19, at the Knapp Center. Tipoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. with the contest being broadcast on Mediacom MC22 and on radio via ESPN Des Moines 1350-AM.On Saturday at the Hy-Vee Classic, the Bulldogs went toe-to-toe with Iowa State before falling 97-80 as the Cyclones closed the game on a 21-4 run. Billy Wampler (Eau Claire, Wis.) continued his offensive outburst with a career-high 23 points to mark his second-straight 20-point game and his fifth straight game in double figures. De’Antae McMurray (Alton, Ill.) added a career-high 15 points in the loss as well.SDSU finds itself on a hot streak of late with five wins in its last six games including an 88-84 overtime win against Murray State on Saturday evening to improve to 6-7 on the year. The Jackrabbits are led by Summit League preseason Player of the Year Mike Daum with 22.2 points per game after back-to-back 30-point outings.The Jackrabbits are coached by first-year head coach T.J. Otzelberger, someone Drake head coach Jeff Rutter is extremely familiar with dating back to when Otzelberger was a senior in high school and Rutter had just been named head coach at UW Parkside.”I was at a recruiting event in Milwaukee, and T.J., then this young man, approached me about the possibility of joining our program,” Rutter said. “I had my chance to coach him my first year at Parkside and we’ve been great friends ever since. He was just with us for a year, but eight or nine years later he reached out and was interested in joining the college coaching ranks.”Rutter, who was then at UNI with Greg McDermott offered Otzelberger the opportunity to work camps and learn from the Panthers’ staff before gaining even more experience coaching at Chipola Junior College in Florida.When McDermott and Rutter jumped to Iowa State, they added Otzelberger, who had at that point developed tremendous national recruiting connections, to the staff. There Rutter and Otzelberger remained on staff together for seven years.”We worked together for seven years at Iowa State and have maintained a strong relationship,” Rutter added. “I respect the heck out of him. He’s a tough-nosed worker and grinder. He’s in it for the right reasons – he enjoys working with young guys and is a tremendous student and teacher of the game.”Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more
