Both Ospreay and Okada are on the top of their game as they told a wonderful story going back and forth, countering each other at every turn. Ospreay pulled out everything in his arsenal as he tried to make history and become the first IWGP junior heavyweight champion to defeat the heavyweight champion.  The Korakuen Hall crowd was all-in, especially down the stretch as they traded near falls. Ospreay looked to secure the win with the Stormbreaker but Okada escaped and connected with two thunderous Rainmaker clotheslines to earn the win. We’re quickly approaching the halfway point of the annual G1 Climax 29 presented by New Japan Pro Wrestling. The annual tournament is a showcase for some of the best matches of the year and this one has lived up to the hype with some incredible action.As usual, the action has lived up to the hype so far with the first seven nights delivering some incredible wrestling matches. Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearSome background on the G1 Climax: the tournament features 20 heavyweights which are split into two blocks of 10 competitors. Two points are given for a victory, one point for a draw, and zero points for a loss. At the end of the round-robin portion of the tournament, the top point scorers in each block with square off in the finals.The winner of that match will earn the right to challenge for the IWGP heavyweight championship on Jan. 4, 2020 at Wrestle Kingdom 14 inside the Tokyo Dome. If current champion Kazuchika Okada wins the tournament, he will choose his Wrestle Kingdom opponent.While there is still plenty of the tournament yet to come, it has already featured some awesome matches. Here’s a look at the top five matches of the G1 Climax 29. 5. KENTA vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi (Night 3)G1 CLIMAX 29(7/14)を公開!メインはAブロック公式戦、@tanahashi1_100 VS @KENTAG2S!両者譲らぬ一進一退の攻防!両者の盟友、柴田の前で勝利を掴みとるのはどちらだ!?登録&視聴▷https://t.co/MUlAzAkQc1#njpw #njpwworld #G1Climax #G129 pic.twitter.com/NBU2Sq5RTQ— njpwworld (@njpwworld) July 14, 2019One of the biggest stories of the tournament is proving that this is KENTA, the Japanese superstar and not the Hideo Itami that struggled in NXT the past few years.Both of them looked like they approached this match with something to prove. There was KENTA connecting again and again with his signature kicks as if he was trying too smash a hole in the “Ace” with Tanahashi selling the damage but keep coming back.When Tanahashi put together some offense including a High Fly Flow, it looked like it was game over but instead, KENTA blocked a second HFF and finished off the Japanese legend with a penalty kick and the Go 2 Sleep. 4. EVIL vs. Kota Ibushi (Night 3)G1 CLIMAX 29 大田区大会!第8試合Aブロック公式戦、@ibushi_kota VS @151012EVIL!両者ともにフルスロットル!どちらも譲らぬ激しい攻防!果たして最後までリングに立っているのはどちらだ!?登録&視聴▷https://t.co/XKHy3UQncl#njpw #njpwworld #G1Climax #G129 pic.twitter.com/czJ3iTRnWN— njpwworld (@njpwworld) July 14, 2019Sometimes wrestling just needs to make sense. And it made sense that EVIL would focus on Ibushi’s bad ankle that he hurt on the opening night of the tournament. The match was all about EVIL looking to take advantage of the injury, looking to destroy that ankle while Ibushi had to find a way to win without his usual mobility.When Ibushi connected with a flurry of slaps and punches, EVIL countered with a vicious kick to the bad ankle that put Ibushi on the mat and crushing his hopes in the process.Ibushi put together one last effort down the stretch including several Bome Ye knee strikes but EVIL was too strong as he connected with Everything is EVIL to score the win. A simple yet very effective story. 3. Will Ospreay vs. Kota Ibushi (Night 5)[Replay ‘G1 CLIMAX 29 Night 5’ on July 18th, 2019]9TH MATCH:G1 CLIMAX 29 – A BLOCK TOURNAMENT MATCH @ibushi_kota vs. @WillOspreay!!Watch on New Japan World▶︎https://t.co/Tj7UBINesh #njpw #njpwworld #G1Climax #g129 pic.twitter.com/qNcVsSYvsg— njpwworld (@njpwworld) July 19, 2019The talk heading into this match was how far these daredevils would venture into the danger zone in what they would do. Neither are afraid of taking risks — huge, scary risks — at the expense of putting on a memorable performance.Instead, they focused on telling a story with each going into the match banged up with Ospreay dealing with a bad neck and Ibushi still suffering from an ankle injury. There were still some risky spots but because there were fewer, it made them feel more important with each that connected.Both of them came out unscathed while putting on an innovative display of athleticism and violence in what turned out to be their latest gem.2. Jon Moxley vs. Tomohiro Ishii (Night 6)Tomohiro Ishii ‘DIVE!!!’Sign up Now & Stay tuned to https://t.co/Tj7UBJ4PjP#njpw #G1Climax #g129 #njpwworld pic.twitter.com/sKfBkCsYbG— njpwworld (@njpwworld) July 19, 2019These two took the fight to one another the second the bell rung and it was all action from there. As expected between these two, this turned into a brawl that went into the crowd. While they were outside the ring for a long time but Kevin Kelly correctly said on the broadcast the crowd would have “tarred and feathered” the referee if he had counted them out.As wild as this got, maybe the craziest thing of the tournament so far was seeing Ishii — a grounded, no-nonsense, true-blooded fighter — jumping off the top rope and connecting with a splash that sent Moxley through a table outside the ring.Neither came out as the loser in this hard-hitting battle even though Moxley scored the two points in the win. The former Dean Ambrose has dialed it up since leaving WWE and this is the wild and dangerous Jon Moxley who is firmly putting his stamp on this tournament.last_img read more

‘ABSOLUTELY NO PLANS TO MAKE MALIN HEAD COAST GUARD STATION PART-TIME’ – McHUGH

first_imgStaff at Malin Head when it was given a reprieve 16 months agoDONEGAL Deputy Joe McHugh has insisted today there are no plans to downgrade the Coast Guard station at Malin Head.It followed a newspaper report today which claimed Leo Varadkar, the transport minister, wanted to make the Malin Head station part-time – operating 12 hour per day instead of 24.“In relation to today’s story in the Irish Times, the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sports proposed Action Plan in response to the Value for Money (Fisher) reports didn’t provide for Malin operating on a 12 hour basis,” said Deputy McHugh. “Closing Malin at night was looked at as one of a number of options but the Department’s conclusion was that the three stations should be maintained and greater efficiencies generated through closer integration of the stations using advanced technologies and improved working processes.“There are no proposals at this time to close Malin Head coast guard station.”The station fought a long campaign – backed by McHugh – to retain its status with the Government deciding to keep it open in September last year.Staff at the station work 24/7 every day of the year to help coordinate hundreds of rescues and save dozens of lives.  ‘ABSOLUTELY NO PLANS TO MAKE MALIN HEAD COAST GUARD STATION PART-TIME’ – McHUGH was last modified: December 30th, 2013 by John2Share 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:closurecoast guardMalin HeadProposalsstationlast_img read more
