Jamaicans top IAAF World Under-18 list

first_img Calabar High’s outstanding sprint hurdler De’Jour Russell, who smashed Omar McLeod’s Class One 110m hurdles record at Champs and who was ranked number one among Under-20 athletes last year in the event, sits atop the world list in the Boy’s 110m hurdles event. Russell, who just missed out on getting a medal at the IAAF World Under-20 Championships in Bydgoszcz, Poland, last year after finishing fourth, could go all the way in the Under-18 age group this time. Russell’s winning time of 13.31 seconds in copping the Under-18 event at the Carifta Trials has him at the head of the class. Four other Jamaicans are ranked in the top-three of their events, with Calabar’s Michael Stephens, Wolmer’s Boys’ Jeremy Farr and Ruseas High’s Antonio Watson at number two, while Vere Technical’s Ramone Lindo and St Elizabeth Technical’s Dashinelle Dyer are both third. RUSSELL LEADS CHARGE AMONG MALES THE IAAF World Under-18 Championships, formerly the World Youth Championships, will have its final staging this year when the eighth edition takes place in Nairobi, Kenya, between July 12 and 16. At the 206th IAAF General Meeting held at the Summer Olympics last year, a decision was made by the council that this year’s staging would be the final as it was the intention of improving the performances of Under-18 athletes at the continental level. Since its inception in Bydgoszcz, Poland, in 1999, where Veronica Campbell Brown made her breakout on the international stage, there have been great Jamaican performances, as several have been crowned champions in different disciplines. Following performances so far this season at various meets, including the ISSA-GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships, several Jamaicans have made big statements and are at the top of the class in their events as they look set to make big impressions in the final staging of this meet. Vere Technical’s Brittany Anderson is hoping to join Yanique Thompson as champion in the Girl’s 100m hurdles, and after dazzling performances so far in the event, she has the four fastest times at this level, with her record-breaking performance of 13.04 seconds, done in winning her semi finals at Champs, leading the class. Her other top times are 13.12, 13.18 and 13.21 seconds. It is a clean sweep of the top-three spots by Jamaicans, as Holmwood Technical’s Shanette Allison, who broke Anderson’s record of 13.37 seconds in the preliminary round at Champs with 13.30 seconds, is at number two, while Manchester High’s Daszay Freeman is at number three with her 13.37 seconds, also done at Champs.last_img read more

World Cup quarterfinals exclusive to Europe, South America

first_imgTeams from other continents approach matches against world powers trailing before the opening kickoff because of a mentality deficit. They often speak after losses lamenting they gave opponents “too much respect.” They approach World Cup games as if facing an entire nation, not just the 11 opponents on the field. That us-against-history affliction has proven difficult to treat.“In Italy, I think some of the fans said if they don’t beat the U.S. 4-0, it’s a disgrace,” 1990 U.S. captain Michael Windischmann said when the Americans returned to the World Cup after a 40-year absence.Mexico is the North American power, yet it has lost seven straight round-of-16 matches and been frustrated in its national quest to reach “el quinto partido” — the fifth match — for the first time since ’86.“The mentality is changing, it’s changing,” Mexican star forward Javier Hernandez told Fox after the loss. “In the world you can see that, You can feel it.”The quarterfinals are all European and South American for the fourth time in nine World Cups, after 1994, ’98 and ’06. Only once has more than one outsider made the last eight, when CONCACAF, Africa and Asia each advanced a team in South Korea.Lalas thinks Africa is the most likely nation to break the powers’ hegemony.“While it would be different and unique and never-before seen, it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility,” he said. “Certainly if a CONCACAF team did it, it would be a huge, huge surprise. You not only need to be good, you need to have a little bit of luck.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew View comments MOST READ Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Harvey Weinstein rape trial Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
