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

The team could have easily packed it in and quit.Instead, Smith and the Norsemen did the exact opposite.Vernonell Smith, who was at his best in his team’s upset of Montague last week. Photo/Jason GoormanLast Friday, they pulled off the biggest upset in the area this season, stunning previously unbeaten Montague, 14-6. It was North Muskegon’s second straight win, following a 28-6 thrashing of Mason County Central.Suddenly things are looking up for the Norse, and Smith has been a sparkplug in the turnaround.He was at his best against Montague.Playing on the Wildcats’ home field in rainy conditions, Smith gave the Norse a 7-6 lead with a two-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. He set up that score by breaking loose for a 70-yard run.The team’s second score, in the third quarter, came after a bad punt inside the Montague 20 that gave the Norse great field position. They took advantage when quarterback Jesse Cook hit Cameron Waller with an 18-yard touchdown pass.Smith finished the game with 135 yards rushing on 25 attempts. He also was part of a North Muskegon defense that continually turned Montague away from the end zone, despite giving up 283 yards in total offense.“We knew we hadn’t beaten (Montague) in 16 years,” said Smith, a four-year varsity player at North Muskegon. “So it was a huge win. I’d say the biggest in my career. Defensively, we came together as a group. In the red zone, we got a lot of really big stops.“We stuck together and made the big plays when we needed them. And coach (Larry Witham) put us in the right position to win.”All totaled, Smith leads the Norsemen with 473 rushing yards and five touchdowns this season, with a 5.3 yards per carry average. Defensively, he ranks fifth on the squad with 22 tackles, including 15 solo takedowns, and has two interceptions, with one returned for a touchdown.“He’s a kid with a pretty high football IQ,” said Witham, the team’s first-year head coach. “He’s played a lot of football in his days here. He’s a tough kid, too. He’s played through some shoulder and ankle issues. He’s always been a trooper.”The 6-foot-1, 195-pound Smith laughingly says he started out as “chubby and lazy kid,” which explains why he started out playing on the offensive line, and not running back, in Mini Mite youth football.“In Dynamites, I got moved to tight end, then my last year (in youth league), I moved over to running back. That’s what I always wanted to do.” Smith said he developed a passion for the sport from his father, Vernonell Smith Sr., who starred at Whitehall High School as an offensive guard and linebacker. “He passed it on to me,” Smith said. “I’d say that’s where I get my physicality from.”Smith said he’s learned plenty from his father over the years, but a few words of advice he got from his dad stick out the most.“He’s always telling me to keep my head on straight,” Smith began. “Grades come first. Always play within my team. And always give 110 percent.”Those are the type of life lessons that Smith hopes to pass on to the next generation when he achieves is goal of becoming a coach and physical education teacher.He also plans to continue to play football in college and is currently sorting through his options. He’s already visited NAIA school Dordt College in Orange City, Iowa, and has spoken to coaches at Northern Michigan University and Wayne State.With only two wins, North Muskegon would need a lot of luck to sneak into the postseason playoffs. The minimum requirement is six wins, and there are only three games left. But sometimes five-win teams sneak under the wire, and Smith is holding on to hope.“We’re hoping with that Montague win, that might give us enough points to push us in,” he said. The truth is that North Muskegon entered a perfect storm to start this season, with all four of their losses coming on the road to squads that currently boast a combined 19-5 record.“It’s not like we were losing to any average Joes,” Witham said. “It was pretty stiff competition and we were working a lot of kids into a lot of new spots. We kind of figured we may start that way, but I’d say this team finally started to turn the corner in the Ravenna game (a 28-20 loss). That’s when I think the lightbulb started to go off.”The Norse were also adjusting to a new coaching staff early on, as well as new offensive and defensive schemes. They were also alternating a pair of sophomores at the quarterback position – Jesse Cook and Mac Young.But in its two wins since the Ravenna loss, North Muskegon has played turnover-free football and Smith has shined on both sides of the ball. Against Mason County Central, he had 89 yards rushing and a touchdown, and also a 42-yard interception return for a touchdown. “It took some time to run things correctly,” Smith said. “Now, we’re not second-guessing ourselves.” DEAL OF THE DAY Add Comments (Max 320 characters) Report a problem This item is… Displayed poorly × Bestseller Displayed poorly Share Dude Perfect Signature Bow Nerf Sports Bi… ENDS IN Inappropriate / Offensive Franklin Sports MLB Electronic Baseball … Inappropriate / Offensive Not relevantcenter_img Inappropriate / Offensive × Bestseller Thank you!

THERE could certainly be worst places to self-isolate than were Cristiano Ronaldo is spending lockdown.Portuguese football legend Cristiano Ronaldo, 35, missus Georgina Rodriguez, the kids, mom Dolores, and brother Hugo are in quarantine together at the Juventus star’s incredible home in Madeira.Cristiano Ronaldo and his family have been self-isolating in his £7m Madeira homeCredit: Instagram @cristiano⚠️ Read our coronavirus in sport live blog for the latest news & updatesThe seven-storey mansion in Funchal, where Ronaldo is originally from, was finally finished last summer – four years after the former Manchester United No7 bought a warehouse and converted it into this luxury abode.It is believed Ronaldo splashed around £7million to recover the dream home, with Georgina smitten by its incredible sea view, as well as its amenities including TWO Olympic-sized swimming pools, jacuzzi and a football pitch.BUILT FROM SCRATCHIn 2015, Ronaldo bought the building, near the luxury Savoy Hotel and located at the entrance of the port of Funchal, from local designer Nini Andrade Silva for an undisclosed sum.Before that, it was the warehouse where Diário de Notícias da Madeira, the local Madeira newspaper, was based.The building also housed a famous nightclub called Bar/Club Noir over the years.But Ronaldo was adamant that he would turn it into a dream property.In 2019, when work was finally completed and the building was restored, he moved in with his mum and brother Hugo, who also manages his nearby CR7 Museum.It’s not known how many bedrooms and bathrooms the property boasts, however there are four floors above ground – with the top two taken by Ronaldo, Georgina and their brood.On the roof you will find one of the swimming pools, which Ronaldo was snapped enjoying during quarantine by one of its several terraces.The rooftop boasts a stunning poolRonaldo has been spied topping up his tan on the rooftop terraceCredit: AFP or licensorsGeorgina Rodriguez has been sharing pictures online while the family are in quarantine in MadeiraCredit: Instagram @georginagioThere are two gyms, which Ronaldo has been using extensively to sculpt his chiselled abs, and even a small football pitch, should he want a kickabout with Cristiano Jr.Underground, there’s a large garage that can accommodate five cars.WHAT A VIEWWhen Ronaldo’s partner Georgina Rodriguez saw the sea view the property offered, she reportedly fell in love with the romantic getaway.Although it doesn’t appear to be very private, the view of the Atlantic Ocean from the rooftop pool is stunning.Overlooking the cruise port of Funchal, the scenic landscape and sea air certainly beats where the Ronaldo family reside in Turin for peace and comfort. While in quarantine during the coronavirus crisis, Georgina has taken to Instagram to show the view off too – and who can blame her.The view property boasts is out of this worldGeorgina Rodriguez was said to have fallen in love with the view the moment she saw the buildingCredit: Instagram @cristianoRonaldo’s mum Dolores is believed to live thereThe Ronaldo family take advantage of the jacuzziCredit: Instagram @CristianoWHY HE’S THEREWith Serie A suspended because of Covid-19, Ronaldo was given permission by Juventus to go to Madeira to help mum Dolores.In the beginning of March she suffered a stroke and the five-time Ballon d’Or-winner flew to her bedside to be with her.When he visited her at the Dr Nelio Mendonca Hospital, before she was transferred to a private hospital, he was said to have worn a protective mask, clothing and gloves after it was revealed one of his team-mates tested positive for coronavirus.IT’S A HOLIDAY HOMEAlthough Ronaldo is based in Italy for now, his Madeira mansion will surely be his holiday home.Last summer, shortly before preseason kicked off, he was spied on one of the terraces enjoying a romantic trip with Georgina without their children.Ronaldo entertains his family in the Madeira abodeCredit: Instagram @cristianoRonaldo showed off his home gym, which he has two in the Madeira propertyCredit: Instagram / @cristianoRonaldo has also been taking followers through his exercise routine on InstagramCredit: Instagram @cristianoWhen his mum Dolores had a stroke at the beginning of March Ronaldo flew to be with herRonaldo’s brother Hugo is also said to live in the propertyCredit: Instagram @katiaaveirooficialAnd with close proximity to his 48-room luxury hotel, the Pestana CR7, it’ll also be a good spot to keep on top of his business interests.Ronaldo has never forgotten his roots, recently supplying Madeira hospitals with ventilators and equipment during the coronavirus crisis.So, of course he’s built his own castle there.

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.
