We had a great game plan from coach and we’re able to squeak this one out.” Ross is also hopeful that wins like these can finally silence critics saying that San Miguel is in a disarray.“I don’t think anything was wrong with us. We lost two games by one point. It’s not like we’re getting blown out. The game against Alaska, we got blown out, but before that, games against NLEX and Star were decided by just one possession,” he said. “I felt like we’re not playing bad even though we’re at 3-3. We’re always one possession away.”Ross agreed that looking back, the Beermen made a mistake on replacing Wendell McKines with Terik Bridgeman.But with Terrence Watson now in the fold, he believes that San Miguel is back to its old dominant self as it seeks to make it to the top four and ultimately capture the Grand Slam.“When we changed imports, I guess you could say they made the wrong decision, but I felt we’re playing good enough to win games. We’re just not making plays at the end of the game. But now that we got an import that competes and fits in well with us, plus we’re getting healthy and coach is finding our way with our rotation, then we’re starting to play a little bit better which is causing us to win games,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Robredo should’ve resigned as drug czar after lack of trust issue – Panelo Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Didn’t Play According to the Rules: Yogeshwar Dutt Slams Umpiring Post Bajrang Punia’s Controversial Loss

New Delhi: Following Bajrang Punia’s controversial loss in the semi-finals of the World Wrestling Championships, star wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt has questioned the umpiring standards at the ongoing event in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhastan.On Thursday, Punia, World No.1 65 kg freestyle wrestler, lost his semi-final bout against local wrestler Daulet Niyazbekov in a rather controversial manner after securing the quota for 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Punia, who lost on the basis of tie-breaker rules after getting locked at 9-9 with his Niyazbekov via criteria point — a four-point move, was seen pleading with the mat chairman to take appropriate action against the home wrestler for several fouls — including hitting on the face, pulling costume and delaying tactics.Punia was a victim of multiple fouls as Niyazbekov was warned but to no avail as he trailed 2-9 following a four-point move by Niyazbekov which was reviewed by the Indian grappler.”Anyone who saw the semi-final bout between Bajrang and Niyazbekov can clearly distinguish between right and wrong. Then why didn’t the umpires sitting there saw that? How could such a mistake take place in a big tournament like World Championships? Kazakhstan didn’t play according to the rules (sic.),” tweeted Dutt in Hindi on Thursday.बजरंग v/s नियाज़ (कजाखस्तान) का सेमीफाइनल मैच देखकर कोई भी सही या गलत में फर्क कर सकता है। फिर वहां बैठे अम्पायर को ये क्यूँ नही दिखा? इतने बड़े टूर्नामेंट में इतनी बड़ी लापरवाही? कजाखस्तान बहुत ही गलत तरीके से खेल रहा था ये सबने देखा।— Yogeshwar Dutt (@DuttYogi) September 19, 2019Former Olympic wrestler and Ultimate Fighting Championship star Ben Askren tweeted: “Daton got screwed! Bajrang got screwed.”Endorsing Dutt’s views, Askren said: “Dutt knows cheating when he sees it.”Apart from Punia, Ravi Kumar Dahiya also lost his semi-final bout 4-6 to Zavur Uguev of Russia in the 57-kg weight category. However, like Punia, he was also able to secure a berth for the Tokyo Olympics. Bajrang PuniacontroversyIndiaIndian Wrestling First Published: September 20, 2019, 11:09 AM ISTlast_img read more

SPORT-SALMAN-LD REAX 2

first_img(REOPENS DEL 50) (REOPENS DEL 50) The 33-year-old Yogeshwar felt a sportsperson would have been more apt for the position. “Sportspersons like PT Usha and Milkha Singh strived hard for the nation during difficult times. But what has this ambassador done in sports. “What will happen by the appointment of an ambassador? If you had to do this drama, then why not appoint a sportsperson?” he asked. “The country needs medals, not sponsors.” Milkha too felt that the IOA has taken a wrong decision and should reconsider the move. “India has produced so many sportspersons who have given their sweat and blood for the country like PT Usha, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, Ajit Pal and so many others. One of these could have been made a goodwill ambassador. What was the need to import a person from Bollywood?” he asked. Milkha, who won gold in 1958 and 1962 Asian Games, said the fact that no Indian sportsperson had been picked up as ambassador saddened him. “I want to make it clear that I am not against Salman Khan, but the decision of the IOA is wrong and the Government should intervene in the matter. This is for the first time I am seeing a Bollywood hero being made goodwill ambassador for Olympics. I want to ask has Bollywood ever made any sportsperson an ambassador for any of their mega event?” he said. “I want that the decision to name Salman Khan as ambassador should be revised,” he said. The sentiment was echoed by the likes of former hockey star Dhanraj Pillay. “I would like to see a sportsperson as brand ambassador. We have legendary players such as Milkha Singh, P T Usha, Abhinav Bindra. No doubt Salman is one of the best faces of Bollywood and whatever he says sells. But in sports I feel sportsperson should be ambassador,” Pillay said. MORE PTI PM SUN PMadvertisementlast_img read more

‘Emery must stop Ozil switching off’

first_imgMesut Ozil is set to pose Unai Emery with one of his biggest challenges at Arsenal manager, says Alan Smith, with the enigmatic playmaker having a tendency to switch off.There has never been any doubting the German’s ability, with the 29-year-old having tasted trophy triumphs with Real Madrid and the Gunners and World Cup glory with his country.He has, however, faced plenty of criticism throughout his career, with it often suggested that Ozil can go missing when the chips are down and he is not granted freedom to express himself. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Emery will be desperate to find consistency in a key man this season, with a positive relationship between player and coach required if the pair are to deliver collective success.Former Gunners striker Smith told the Express on that battle: “For me, this is a relationship that could go one of two ways – whether Ozil responds to Emery or whether he doesn’t.“There have been times in recent years when Ozil seems to have switched off and lost the ball, and the team have lost the ball and the team have suffered.“It’s going to be fascinating how Emery deals with that. Ozil is a player who signed for fortunes and he is expected to play.“That is going to be one of the most interesting things to watch. How is Ozil going to fit in with the new regime?“He has had a turbulent summer with all that went on, then the World Cup, which was a disaster for Germany.“He needs to settle down now. I’m sure he will be desperate to do well. And Arsenal need him. He is one of the key creative players. On his day, there are not many like him in the Premier League.“Emery has to get hold of Ozil, try to get the best out of him, get him on board.”Mesut Ozil Arsenal 2018-19Ozil committed to a new contract with Arsenal last season under Arsene Wenger, with the club now welcoming in a new era after bidding farewell to a long-serving boss after 22 years.“It was obvious that there needed to be change this summer at Arsenal,” said Smith.“The place had grown stale. Now the fans are going into the new season with optimism and that is a difference this year. Everyone is intrigued about how it is going to go.“To an extent, Emery came out of nowhere. He was not on the original shortlist. His track record at Sevilla though was very good and he had far more experience than Mikel Arteta.“Emery is a Basque and they are a tough people. He will be a taskmaster. Chalk and cheese really to Wenger. The pre-season training will have been hard for the players. They will have found that out by now.”He added: “I think Arsenal will be more organised this year, tougher at the back. But it will take time to get used to what Emery wants.“Arsenal will score goals – they have the players for that. But the key is in defence. There was a lack of accountability in the team last season and the same players kept getting picked. It drove everybody mad. They have to be more difficult to break down this season, more solid.”last_img read more

Auba came out and said that his father was ill and did not want the job anyway, which led to an embarrassing situation for the FEGAFOOT.Aubameyang, the 2015 African Footballer of the Year, said the original announcement was “another example of the federation’s amateurism” but FEGAFOOT said they were pressured into it by the sports minister, without explaining why.Aubame also captained the national team, was among Gabon’s first exports to French league football and has previously served as an assistant coach with the Gabon team.Cousin replaces former Spain manager Juan Antonio Camacho, who was fired after winning just two matches in his two year spell as Gabon coach.Cousin takes charge for the first time when Gabon face South Sudan in Libreville on Oct. 12 and the same opposition in Juba four days later, needing all six points to revive their hopes of qualifying for next year’s African Nations Cup finals.(With inputs from Reuters)last_img read more

Afghanistan Senior UN humanitarian official visits Kandahar ahead of appeal launch

She held meetings with the governor of Kandahar, government officials, United States military officials, the Provincial Reconstruction Team and the representatives from the humanitarian community in the country.Instability and conflict continue in the southern Afghanistan amid deteriorating humanitarian conditions. The number of war casualties at Mirwais Regional Hospital in Kandahar, which is supported by the International Committee of the Red Cross, is at record high, with almost twice as many new patients showing up with war-related injuries in August and September this year as during the same period in 2009.“The civilian population, particularly in southern Afghanistan, is trapped in the middle and suffer disproportionately,” said Ms. Bragg, who is also the Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs.“Threats or attacks on the UN and humanitarian community only compound this desperate situation further by limiting assistance and civilian protection,” she added.In addition to ongoing conflict, humanitarian groups in Kandahar also stressed the impact of natural disasters on the population, including drought, heavy snowfall, and flash floods, which have further reduced access to economic opportunity and increased vulnerability.In Ms. Bragg’s meetings with US military officials and Canadian representatives in the Provincial Reconstruction Team, she urged respect for the Geneva Conventions and the right of the affected population to receive humanitarian assistance.“I urge all parties to the conflict to allow and ensure safe and sustained humanitarian access to civilian populations in need,” said Ms. Bragg. 4 December 2010The United Nations deputy emergency relief coordinator, Catherine Bragg, today visited Afghanistan’s southern city of Kandahar as part of her mission to the country ahead of tomorrow’s launch the humanitarian appeal for the South Asian nation. read more

Football Ohio State won a conference championship on the back of its

Ohio State senior safety Damon Webb (7) celebrates a pass break-up in the third quarter of the B1G Championship game against Wisconsin on Dec. 2 in Lucas Oil Stadium. Ohio State won 27-21. Credit: James King II | Sports DirectorINDIANAPOLIS — “Defense wins championships” is the most overused phrase in sports. It will be used one million times or more in the coming weeks as four teams prepare for a shot at a national title.Saturday, the phrase was gospel.No. 8 Ohio State made two momentous defensive stops in the final five minutes against No. 4 Wisconsin to win its first Big Ten title since 2014, and more importantly for the Buckeyes, they have a realistic shot at earning the final spot in the College Football Playoff just vacated by the Badgers.“Their preparation this week, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a college football team prepare the way these kids did,” Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano said. “I think that gave them great confidence to go execute.”Ohio State elected to kick a field goal on a fourth-and-1 with 5:20 remaining, which extended the lead to 27-21. That’s a spot where head coach Urban Meyer is notorious for rolling the dice and winning a football game by winning that 1 yard. He said after the game that it was his decision to kick the field goal and go against his traditional action of attempting the conversion.The truth was that the defense was playing too well not to have faith that it could get a stop. It did. And after another three-and-out by the Ohio State offense, the defense made the game-ending stop.Wisconsin quarterback Alex Hornibrooke threw his second interception of the game on fourth-and-20 to Damon Webb with less than two minutes left in the game.“I just thought our defense was playing so good,” Meyer said. Let’s let that quarterback and let our defensive line do what they do best and get after that quarterback. But that was one of the toughest calls of the day.”Hornibrooke’s has the worst touchdown to interception ratio of any Power 5 conference quarterback at 21 to 15. But he wasn’t what concerned Ohio State’s defense. Big Ten freshman of the year Jonathan Taylor, who averaged more than 150 rushing yards per game entering the contest, was the main focus on defense.In response, the defensive line played one of its best games of the year by continually penetrating Wisconsin’s vaunted offensive line and stopping Taylor before he got any momentum.The running back had 15 carries for 41 yards, his lowest total in one game this season.The defense answered any challenged thrown at them, most especially when the offense failed to put away Wisconsin.Ohio State had four three-and-outs, two field goals and an interception in the second half. There was no touchdown to decisively split the Badgers from the playoff field and the ranks of the unbeaten. The defense had to do that.“I think we were super confident the whole game,” sophomore defensive end Nick Bosa said. “I don’t think there was a moment we thought we were going to lose at all.”Wisconsin could have been the team that was on the podium celebrating as the Buckeyes walked off the field without any detection and with their heads held low, for everyone’s eyes would be on the team with the shiny football and hardware hoisted in the air. Everyone in attendance would watch the players and coaches pack themselves onto a makeshift stage that looks like it should be in a town parade rather than on a football field.Instead, Ohio State celebrated. A dominant offense at times that then went cold late couldn’t put the game on ice. To win the game, it had to be done on defense.An opportunity was there for the Badgers. Ohio State left the door open after each missed chance to deliver a decisive blow, but the defense seized it when the Badgers couldn’t. That’s why Ohio State is the Big Ten champion. read more

Jeremy Corbyn filmed sitting on floor of train for three hour journey

first_imgThe incident happened on the same day that Mr Corbyn set out his plans for a new transport strategy as he pledged to bring the nation’s railways back into public ownership.He said a Labour government would “rebuild and transform” the UK’s transport network.He insisted public ownership of the railways could raise enough money to cut rail fares by as much as 10 per cent.He also promised to give all councils the power to set up publicly run municipal bus companies. It is a sight familiar to frustrated commuters the length and breadth of the country: no seat on a packed train, forced into the space in-between carriages, sitting down outside the lavatory, trying to drink your coffee.What is less common, though, is to look up from your lowly train position and see The Leader of Her Majesty’s Most Loyal Opposition crouched on the floor opposite you.But that was the case for passengers on the London to Newcastle on Tuesday: Jeremy Corbyn, known for his rigid principles, squashed in the corner on the floor of the train reading Private Eye with a brown paper bag and a coffee.He was on his way to Gateshead for the Labour leadership hustings with Owen Smith.In the footage, filmed by Yannis Mendez for the Guardian, Mr Corbyn explains that if he had taken the option of upgrading to first class, he would be spending his fellow passenger’s money.“Is it fair that I should upgrade my ticket whilst others who might not be able to afford such a luxury should have to sit on the floor? It’s their money I would be spending after all,” he said.“This is a problem that many passengers face every day, commuters and long-distance travellers. Today this train is completely ram-packed. The staff are absolutely brilliant, working really hard to help everybody.“The reality is there are not enough trains, we need more of them – and they’re also incredibly expensive. Isn’t that a good case for public ownership?” Some comments on social media suggested the incident could have been a stunt: Others compared the incident to George Osborne, the former Chancellor, upgrading to first class during a 2012 journey because of a busy train: Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

I’m scared I would end up dead. I feel there’s no hope for me.”He added: “I’m afraid for my life. I know I’m not going to survive out there. Everything is different. I can’t even fathom how it’s going to be. I can’t cover up my history. I’m going to be an outcast. People would attack me.”Speaking about the raid which landed him in jail, he added: “I wasn’t a horrible person. I made a hell of a mistake and now I’m paying with my life. My lifestyle was bad.”Ahmed, who lives in a flat in west London, said he was no longer in touch with his brother but said he was “proud” of what the athlete had achieved.

The runner will compete at the World Athletics Championships in London next year.A spokesman for the Home Office said it does not comment on individual cases.But he added: “This Government puts the rights of the British public before those of criminals, and foreign nationals who abuse our hospitality by committing crimes in the UK should be in no doubt of our determination to deport them.” Mo Farah’s brother says he faces being deported from Britain to war-torn Somalia and fears he will be killed if he is forced to return.Ahmed Farah, 27, was just two years old when he was brought to Britain 25 years ago with the Olympic athlete, who was then aged eight.He has spoken about the possibility of being deported after serving a four-and-a-half year prison sentence for false imprisonment during a knife raid. Legal hearings are thought to have currently been delayed.last_img read more
