  • After the fireworks, 1st medals up for grabs at Asian Games

It is the second final scheduled in the night program. Sun finished with silver in the event at the 2010 and 2014 Asian Games and is desperate to upgrade that after winning the Olympic gold medal in the 200 at Rio in 2016.“The first race is always a bit struggle but he’s got enough races to work his way into form,” Sun’s coach Dennis Cotterill said. The European championships and the Pan Pacs have already been held this year, leaving the Asian Games as a chance for swimmers from this region to perform.“This is the final puzzle in the world of swimming where everyone gets the opportunity to post their times and see where you stand one year before the world champs,” Cotterill said.ADVERTISEMENT Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Two Koreas march together as Asian Games burst into life In other swimming events, Japan’s Irie Ryosuke will begin his quest for a third straight Asian Games gold in the 100-meter backstroke.There are also medals on offer in fencing, shooting, taekwondo and wrestling as competition intensifies following Saturday’s elaborate opening ceremony that showcased the diverse culture of the archipelago, and the unified parade of athletes from the divided Korean peninsula.There are more than 11,000 athletes competing in 40 sports ranging from the traditional Olympic disciplines to the more regional favorites such as kabaddi and pancak Silat to the newer additions such as jet ski, paragliding and skate boarding.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins China’s Sun Yang swims during a training session at the 18th Asian Games in Jakarta, Indonesia, Friday, Aug. 17, 2018.

  • The best ‘Hodgson’s top three’ tweets

    first_img1 England manager Roy Hodgson selected Javier Mascherano as his player of the year England manager Roy Hodgson became a figure of derision when his Ballon d’Or votes were revealed, as he opted to omit eventual winner Cristiano Ronaldo and four-time victor Lionel Messi from his three selections, instead nominating Javier Mascherano, Manuel Neuer and Philipp Lahm for the award.While the selections of Neuer and Lahm were understandable, nobody could get their head around his choice of Mascherano, so much so, that the internet exploded – with a little help from the Colin Murray show on talkSPORT – with suggestions for Hodgson’s other top three favourite things.Scroll down for some of the best…last_img read more

  • RIGHT2WATER DONEGAL DEMAND GENERAL ELECTION AFTER LATEST TWIST IN WATER BILLS SAGA

    first_imgRight2Water Donegal have today called for an immediate general election in response to this morning’s news that unpaid water bills may be taken from wages and social welfare.Minister Alan Kelly made the announcement this morning that the coalition were considering introducing legislation to recoup unpaid water charges from direct income to the household.This would include direct reductions in wages and social welfare payments. Speaking this afternoon, Right2Water Donegal PRO Gary Doherty said this is a crude and despicable measure for the Government to even consider.“To impose their will on the people of this country in such a manner will cause untold anger and hurt. It is time for Fine Gael and Labour to put these decisions to the people and let democracy decide whether this is imposed on our people. It is time to call a general election.He continued “what makes the announcement this morning even more galling was that Minister Kelly admitted that some people could not afford to pay the water charges and would be accommodated with ‘payment plans’. That is the message that Right2Water have preached all along, that many people simply cannot afford to pay for water. For Labour to admit this while bringing int these measures will surely signal the death knell for that party.”He added that Labour in Ireland was founded by James Connolly and Jim Larkin to represent the workers of Ireland and this modern incarnation have betrayed the memory of these heroic patriots and patrons of the working class.” He continued “the current Government tried to claim that the anti-water charges movement had lost momentum and that the people were coming with them. 87,000 people attended Saturday’s Right2Water demonstration in Dublin. This is the largest protest movement in the history of the modern Irish State. We in Right2Water Donegal send our own message to the Government, ‘We will not be defeated, and our campaign will only end when this Governement is gone, Irish Water is gone, and water charges are gone’.”RIGHT2WATER DONEGAL DEMAND GENERAL ELECTION AFTER LATEST TWIST IN WATER BILLS SAGA was last modified: March 24th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

  • IRISH TIMES DECLARE MARK ENGLISH’S BRONZE MEDAL ONE OF MOMENTS OF SPORTING YEAR

    first_imgIrish Times athletics correspondent Ian O’Riordan has reported many of Ireland’s greatest sporting moments. He has rated Mark English’s bronze medal run as his moment of the sporting year. He also tips him for even greater things at the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016!This is his article in full. European ChampionshipsZurich, August 15thThe image of a perfect rainbow breaking out over the Letzigrund Stadium not long before Mark English toes the line for his 800 metres final.The calm look on the face of the 21 year-old from Donegal. Then the near perfect race and a bronze medal than shone almost as brightly as gold. There was definitely something precious about English winning that European Championship medal on that warm Friday evening in Zurich last August. All week, the Irish medal hopes had disappeared, including earlier that day, when World Champion Rob Heffernan dropped out of the 50km walk.Still, most of the expectations on the slender shoulders of English were his own: a blazing talent since his schoolboy days in Donegal, his obvious potential, coupled with his deep tactical intelligence, hadn’t yet been delivered on any major stage.This time there would be no mistake, and while it wasn’t gold, and for a while it looked like silver, winning the bronze brought much elation – especially amongst those of us watching up in the press seats.Soon, English was sharing a lap of honour with the other two medallists, victory going to Adam Kszczot from Poland, twice a European Indoor champion, who ran season best of 1:44.15. English clocked 1:45.03 to equal his season best, and in the process took out several more fancied medallists, including Pierre-Ambroise Bosse from France, the hot favourite who ended up last.“And sometimes they say bronze medallists end up happier in the long run,” said English, still in the thick of his medical studies at UCD, and with the promise of much more to come. Seb Coe, one of his heroes, was also 21 when he won European bronze over 800m, in 1978, a little teaser perhaps of what English might ultimately be capable of, on the run towards Rio 2016 and beyond.IRISH TIMES DECLARE MARK ENGLISH’S BRONZE MEDAL ONE OF MOMENTS OF SPORTING YEAR was last modified: December 30th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:athleticsdonegalletterkennymark englishlast_img read more
