Little Britain Challenge Cup: Day one

first_imgToday marked the start of the Little Britain Challenge Cup in Cowes. With 60 yachts racing over the next few days, the test race saw the start of the camaraderie and competitive spirit that comes with the largest property and construction industry sailing regatta.A pontoon party sponsored by Asite started the networking and brought the first of the party spirit. The sentiment here is positive and upbeat. Little Britain attracts a range of businesses, from developers and investors to architects, construction companies, advisers and product suppliers. Regardless of what role they play in the industry, there’s a recognition that we’re not back on solid ground but we’re heading in the right direction – there’s work to be had.Throughout the course of the evening, more people arrived to be part of the official race today. Some people weren’t so keen on the queues that Bestival created in Southampton so decided to make their own way over – returning competitor Assael Architecture hired a rib for its whole team. Like Domus, and befitting Building’s number one employer from the latest annual Good Employer Guide, they’re using Little Britain for some quality team building.Whether its team building or client entertainment, there’s an excitement in the air and, as we wake to the second day, the sun is still shining.

Trinidad and Tobago Prime Minister Launches new book

first_imgFrom Mason Hall to WhitehallPrime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley of Trinidad and Tobago, has launched his biography “From Mason Hall to Whitehall: His name is Keith Rowley,” saying that he trusted himself to tell his own story about his political life.“I decided I had to at least tell my story and I trusted myself to tell it. I discovered that the people I led knew very little about me,” he said of the book that was dedicated to his grandson Lucas, as well as to the Youth of Trinidad and Tobago.Rowley, 66, became prime minister last September after he guided his People’s National Movement (PNM) to a 23-18 victory over the then coalition People’s Partnership administration of Kamla Persad Bissessar.Anglican Bishop Claude Berkley said the self-published manuscript, which was originally completed and submitted in May 2016, emphasises the need for people not to lie, steal or kill.“Love your neighbours. There was no love for a lazy man,” the Bishop said, telling the audience that the book gives Rowley’s version of his relationship with the late Prime Minister Patrick Manning, who died earlier this year.A statement issued following the launch noted that Rowley gave several anecdotes from his life’s experiences, with a healthy appreciation and fondness for the humble beginnings in Mason Hall, Tobago.last_img read more

Racers Club Squabble; Bolt Defends Coach Mills Amid Allegations of Neglect

first_imgKINGSTON, Jamaica – The nine-time Olympic gold medal champion, Usain Bolt has shelved his usual diplomacy to defend his longtime coach Glen Mills amid allegations of neglect made by other Jamaican athletes.In a lengthy Instagram post two weeks ago, Jamaican sprinter Kemar Bailey-Cole announced his decision to split from his coach of five years, Glen Mills, siting neglect as the main factor.“(In 2019) I decided to go back to my old ways of preparing, which was pool workouts and track. I spoke with my coach (Mills) and masseur about what I wanted to do and they both agreed,” he explained in the post. “A week went by (and) I got an email saying that my masseur is withdrawing his services because he cannot work with a particular person, so I told the head coach and he told me that my masseur said he heard I was getting massages from someone else.“I looked past that and moved on and weeks passed and I noticed I hadn’t even seen the head coach at any of my pool or track workout sessions, so I started questioning myself. What did I do to deserve this? Why did he give up on me like that, and I get to realize it’s because I’m injury prone and I’m a waste of time and that my head is not good but I will keep going until God tells me to stop”, Bailey-Cole vented on Instagram. Under the post, other Jamaican athletes Warren Weir and Yohan Blake echoed Bailey-Cole’s message, sharing similar views. “Told you he retired couple years ago and didn’t tell the current athletes. #WeDidntGetTheMemo”, Weir said, while Blake commented, “I know the feeling son”.Shortly after the post, Bailey-Cole issued a statement announcing that he would return to his former Coach Gregory Little of the Racers Track Club. According to Bailey-Cole, Little had been overseeing his preparations over the past few months leading up to the national championships.In recent months, six Jamaican athletes have parted ways with Coach Glen Mills- Yohan Blake, Warren Weir, Jevaughn Minzie, Senoj-Jay Givans and Michael O’Hara who is currently coached by Little.But World Record Holder, Usain Bolt is defending his former coach amid the allegations of neglect made by the athletes. “They’re comfortable to disrespect the coach and make the coach look bad”, Bolt said in a live interview with the Jamaica Gleaner, “but they’re not gonna tell you when they got injured and the coach said this is the direction we’re going (and they do something else).It’s very upsetting to see this because I believe in my coach. If my coach says “X”, it’s “X” because I believe that anything my coach says, I will get back. That has been proven over the years and years that I’ve dominated”, Bolt said.It is unusual for Bolt to take a side against his former sprinting teammates, but he says that he is “deeply hurt” by the “disrespectful” comments made by the athletes. “A lot of these athletes complain when coach shows up at their house to even have a conversation- they complain to me”, he said. “But he cares. He cares about track and field and he cares about his athletes.”Bolt went on further to name names, explaining that “Blake, Warren, Bailey-Cole, the younger ones, them complain because them don’t understand the benefit of having a conversation with Coach Mills.”He also disputed Bailey-Cole’s allegations of being neglected by Mills. “Coach supports all of us. You can’t complain about the coach talking to you and then go and complain about neglect”, he said. He added that many athletes including Bailey-Cole and Blake came to Racers Track Club, straight from high school, with injuries and Coach Mills dedicated himself to make sure they received the best treatment and were able to compete.Retired legendary sprinter, Usain Bolt was coached by Glen Mills from 2004 to the end of his track career in 2017. Mills was the reason that Bolt became dominant in the 100 meters, after suggesting that he make a switch to the sprint from the 200 meters. In 2009, Mills stepped down as the Olympic Jamaican athletics coach having overseen athletes to 71 world championship and 33 Olympic medals in his 22 years in the role. He is still the head coach at the Racers Track Club in Kingston.last_img read more

Former Ole Miss All-American Whaley Hall dies

first_imgWhaley Hall, a former Ole Miss All-American lineman under coach John Vaught, passed away on Saturday in Hampton, Virginia, following an extended illness.Hall, who was inducted into the Ole Miss Sports Hall of Fame in 1995, is survived by his wife of 42 years, Lynne, a son Nathan, a daughter Shana and one granddaughter.A native of Trussville, Alabama, Hall was a co-captain of the 1963 Rebel team that won the Southeastern Conference title and played in the 1964 Sugar Bowl.During his three varsity seasons at Ole Miss, the Rebels went 26-3-2, played in two Sugar Bowls and one Cotton Bowl, and won back-to-back SEC titles in 1962 and 1963.

Injuries will impact format of Tennessee’s spring game

first_imgKNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The injuries limiting Tennessee throughout spring practice will affect the format of Saturday’s Orange & White Game.Tennessee is short on players at certain positions, most notably running back and the defensive line. Because of the lack of depth, Volunteers coach Butch Jones has said Saturday’s exhibition at Neyland Stadium will be more of a “spring event” than a spring game. The game pits the offense against the defense, with each side earning points for notable accomplishments.Tennessee will work out in front of well over 100 former Vols, a group that is expected to include Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.The game is expected to include two 15-minute quarters and two 12-minute quarters with a running clock throughout all four periods. Although there will be some 11-on-11 scrimmaging, Jones is including other activities such as a quarterback challenge and one-on-one matchups between linemen or between receivers and defensive backs.“We’re still going to go out there and compete just like every other day,” offensive tackle Kyler Kerbyson said. “It’s going to be more like a practice than a scrimmage. We compete every day during that, too. The one-on-one drills, the situational stuff we’re going to do is going to be very competitive.”Tennessee’s been forced to get creative because of injured players.Before spring practice began, Jones announced nine players would be sidelined and several others would have only limited contact work as they recover from injuries. Since the start of spring practice, injuries have knocked out defensive back Rashaan Gaulden, wide receiver Cody Blanc and defensive end Corey Vereen. Alvin Kamara is the only healthy scholarship running back, and even he missed a week with a thigh bruise.“The guys who are limited, they’re still out there coaching us younger guys and making sure we all understand what we’re doing,” linebacker Cortez McDowell said. “They’re like extra coaches for us.”The early enrollments of freshman quarterbacks Quinten Dormady and Jauan Jennings have given them a head start in the competition to back up starter Joshua Dobbs. By trying out offensive linemen at multiple positions, the Vols have given themselves more options at that spot. They’ve gained depth at safety, where Evan Berry and Todd Kelly Jr. have made strides while backing up returning starters Brian Randolph and LaDarrell McNeil.The Vols sense there’s optimism surrounding the program and a belief that they can return to prominence after ending a string of four straight losing seasons last fall.“It’s definitely a different feeling,” Kerbyson said. “We’re not feeling like nobody’s watching us. We’re feeling like everybody’s on us. We’ve got a target on our backs now.”last_img read more
