Blake impresses in world leading 100m win

first_imgOn a day when American Justin Gatlin dropped a wind-aided 9.90 seconds run in The Bahamas, 2011 World 100m champion Yohan Blake signalled his return after injury issues, with a world leading 9.95 (+1.4) win in the 100m at the MVP Track and field meet at the National Stadium on Saturday night. Blake, who has been bothered with hamstring injuries, which caused him to miss the 2013 World Championships and much of the subsequent seasons, confirmed whispers out of his training camp, which pointed to an athlete in good shape, after bursting out of the blocks and out-sprinting a solid field. 200m specialist Rasheed Dwyer and Zharnel Hughes both clocked 10.10 seconds for second and third respectively. Earlier, Gatlin, while competing at the Chris Brown Bahamas Invitational at the Thomas A Robinson Stadium in Nassau, stopped the clock in 9.90 seconds but had an illegal +2.3 wind pushing him along. Qatar’s Femi Ogundoe, was second in 9.94 with Trinidad and Tobago’s Adrian Griffith taking third in 10.03. Also in The Bahamas, veteran Jamaican sprinter Veronica Campbell-Brown had to settle for third place in the women’s 100m, 11.17 in a  tight finish behind Trinidadian Michelle-Lee Ahye, 11.14 and Murielle Ahoure (Ivory Coast), 11.17. Another Jamaican Aleen Bailey fell during the early stages of the race and was reportedly taken to hospital after hitting her head on the track. Quarter-miler LaShawn Merritt was a highlight at the meet, stopping the clock in a brilliant 19.78 (+0.9) to win the 200m event. Wallace Spearmon, 20.40 was next best with Mike Rodgers 20.42 finishing third, while Jamaica’s Jason Livermore was fifth in 21.01.last_img read more

L.A. lobbies in Capitol for fair share

first_imgEven as the biggest city in the state, he said, Los Angeles is sometimes under-represented in the Capitol, partly because the delegation does not work together well. “L.A. in Sacramento is what California is in Congress – everybody’s out to pick our pocket,” Fleming said. “What we have to do is, on a face-to-face basis, pressing the flesh, get our Southern California delegates pumped up to say, `OK, you guys, enough being nice guys. Now you’ve got to fight, just like the north fights for their money.”‘ Groups like the chamber, he said, have to remind Los Angeles lawmakers that “You’re not Republicans, you’re not Democrats. You’re Angelenos, and you gotta fight for us.” The trip includes representatives from Boeing, Cedars-Sinai Health System and Fleishman-Hillard, along with the Los Angeles Police Department, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the Southern California Association of Governments. Assemblyman Mike Feuer, D-West Hollywood, who is meeting with the chamber’s transportation group, said the region’s legislative delegation has improved its ability to work together this year. SACRAMENTO – As California lawmakers begin deliberating the state budget, Los Angeles business leaders are visiting Sacramento this week to lobby for the region’s fair share of funds and promote pro-business policies. About 100 people representing businesses and public agencies from throughout the region have joined the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce in its annual lobbying trip to the Capitol. The group is scheduled to meet with dozens of state lawmakers as well as Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s chief of staff, state Controller John Chiang and Secretary of State Debra Bowen. Chamber Chairman David Fleming said one of the goals is to make sure Los Angeles gets distributions from the infrastructure bonds approved by voters last year. That was demonstrated, he said, when the delegation and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa convinced the California Transportation Commission to overrule a staff recommendation that would have shortchanged the region on funding from the transportation bond. “Clearly there is, and continues to be, a bias against Los Angeles in Sacramento generally,” Feuer said. “But we have the capacity – as we demonstrated through our work on the initial transportation funding – to counteract that. And I hope we can continue to do that.” harrison.sheppard @dailynews.com (916) 446-6723160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_img0Shares0000Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has signed a new contract © AFP / Adrian DENNISLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 3 – Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson signed a new long-term contract with the Premier League leaders on Monday.Henderson has emerged as a key figure under Reds boss Jurgen Klopp and the new deal is a reward for the England midfielder’s fine form.

He is our ‘General’ and I trust him completely.”After being rested following England’s run to the World Cup semi-finals, Henderson made his first start of the season in Saturday’s 2-1 win at Leicester which ensured Liverpool’s best opening to a campaign since 1990-91.“It doesn’t seem like too long ago when I signed my first one — it feels like yesterday, really — but a lot has happened since then,” Henderson told Liverpool’s website.“I feel it’s been a progressive journey for me throughout my time here and one I’ve enjoyed so much.“There is no other place in the world I would rather play football. I want to be here for as long as I can be.“I’m so privileged to have been a part of this club for so long, and hopefully even longer now.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Championship starlet to be handed new deal

I think the contractual situation to a certain degree is slightly misleading because any player under 24 would still be subject to compensation.“And when you have had bids like we have had a for a player like that, I think that reflects in the compensation. I think for me it’s important to get him somewhere where he deserves to be financially.“You are asking him to play a first team role week in week out, therefore there is going to be a reward on his behalf.“Also for him just to have that sense of security that he can keep developing and not worry at all about that side of the game.”last_img read more
