South American executive sees potential in Open Water Swimming

first_imgGUYANA has the potential to produce world-class swimmers, but rigorous training by the right individuals are necessary, opines Vice President of the South American Swimming Federation or Confederación Sudamericana de Natación (CONSANAT), Jorge Delgado.The FINA instructor, who recently helped to facilitate an open water swim meet, told the Guyana Chronicle that he is optimistic about the potential that we have.The 64-year-old said that the goal of CONSANAT is to have swimmers from Guyana participate in the South American Championships in Open Water Swimming.He said that when the Guyana Amateur Swimming Association (GASA) held an open water swim meet last month at Lake Mainstay, the swimmers swam small lengths in comparison to open water swimmers, but the hope is to keep increasing the lengths at different meets.He said that the onus is on the local swimming authority to seek out talent swimmers, that might mean trips to interior locations and riverine areas where open water swimming might be something natural.“Once in a while you have to travel to identify talent.”The Ecuadorian, who competed at the 1972 and 1976 Summer Olympics, said that he would return next year to assess the progress of the local swimmers.last_img read more

Two wins and a second for Steve Durey in Pattaya golf

first_imgSome average scores were returned with Steve Durey topping the list with thirty-four points, this makes two wins and a second for Steve this week and puts him in contention for golfer of the month although he has to make up some ground on Jimmy Carr who didn’t fire today and only came third on twenty-eight points.In between, Alan Sullivan was in great form tee to green but suffered badly when it came to putting. Remarkably for the second day in a row, there were no takers for near pins, a couple of near misses but they don’t count. Once again Jimmy Carr was the man on form, setting out at a cracking pace on the front only to taper off a bit on the back. Still, he did enough to take first place with thirty-six points. Steve Durey is becoming “Mr Consistency” with another solid round of thirty-four in second place.A rare visit to the winners circle for Geoff Parker Wednesday taking third place with thirty-one. Could we be witnessing a return to form for the once consistent winner?Remarkably nobody was able to hit a green on the par threes so no near pins, that has to be a first as there are a couple of dead eye dicks in the group who always seems to snag one. Promoted Contentbrainberries7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend Betterbrainberriesbrainberriesbrainberries7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend Betterbrainberriesbrainberries Steve Durey the other on nineteen had a solid back nine to finish first on thirty-five. In between, Michael Brett blew a great chance to win after a solid performance on the back nine up to the eighteenth where he went wild off the tee and ended up wiping the hole just when the prize looked in sight.Never out of the winners circle this week Jimmy Carr.Near pins went to Steve Durey, Michael Brett, and a pair to Tony Robbins.For the first time since our return to golf, we were able to shower after the round which was very much appreciated by all. It may be the start of a return to more normal golf as we know it. Not sure anyone is looking forward to what we are being conditioned to believe will be the “New Normal”, whatever that is.Wednesday, May 20th Greenwood A & B1st Jimmy Carr (17) 36 points2nd Steve Durey (21) 34 points3rd Geoff Parker (17) 32 pointsMillionaire golf returned to Pattaya today with a game at Greenwood, a course favoured by many. As always the course was in tip-top condition apart from a couple of greens that had recently been sanded.The green/caddie fee using PSC vouchers was very agreeable. We seemed to be the only ones on the course until close to the end of the round when we saw a few other golfers. A stiff breeze blew particularly on the front nine but abated on the back. Big winner this week Steve Durey.PSC Bunker Boys GolfMonday, May 18th Bangpra1st Steve Durey (21) 35 points2nd Michael Brett (15) 33 points 3rd Jimmy Carr (17) 33Near pins: Steve Durey, Michael Brett, & Tony Robbins X 2Our first visit to Bangpra in some time where we had a rather slow round. A couple of very slow groups out in front of us made life difficult. In retrospect, we should have tried to go out on the tenth. The course was in beautiful condition, lush and green, and well mowed, although the greens were not as fast as we have come to expect at this course. Despite all the rain we have had recently all the water catchments are empty.Jimmy Carr set off like a rocket and holed everything to set a halfway leaders mark of twenty points. Thereafter, he faded away to finish third on thirty-three points when the putter went cold on him. Dave Ashman was joint second at the halfway mark on nineteen points and continued on his merry way with consecutive pars till the thirteenth when he had a succession of wipes to finish out of the frame. Friday, May 22nd Eastern Star1st Steve Durey (21) 34 points2nd Alan Sullivan (12) 33 points3rd Jimmy Carr (17) 28 pointsNear pins no takers“The more things change the more they stay the same.” It seems we are destined never to have a normal day’s golf at Eastern Star. If it’s not our booking canceled without notice or the quoted green fee not being honoured then it’s something else. Friday it was no shower on a stinking hot day, every other course we visited this week had showers but not Eastern Star unfortunately when we needed them most.The course was in decent condition, the greens were nice but for some reason, everybody seemed to have trouble getting the ball in the hole. The usual breeze was blowing again today.
