Let’s build on the success – Wilson

first_imgRIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil:  Jamaica last night ended track and field competition at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games with 11 medals, including six gold – matching its best-ever gold medal return at an Olympic Games, but technical leader Maurice Wilson is warning that there needs to be continued support to ensure that the country’s success continues. The island’s 11-medal campaign matches the Beijing 2008 returns and falls one short of the 12 that were won in London four years ago, but Wilson, who hailed the athletes and the support team of coaches and medical personnel here, underlined the importance of proper investment in the country’s track and field development. “I think the team of athletes and management staff represented Jamaica extremely well. We would have surpassed, in terms of gold medals what we did at the 2012 Games, and that was our primary objective. The fact that we have garnered 11 medals shows the power of our people and of our athletes, and I am extremely pleased,” Wilson told The Sunday Gleaner after Jamaica’s double silver in the men’s and women’s 4x400m relays last night inside the Olympic stadium. “We need to invest more in terms of the youth camps, in terms of giving assistance to the various institutions that have been turning out the athletes and coaches – G.C. Foster College, University of Technology and the University of the West Indies – and try to improve in our collegiate structure,” added Wilson. “We see where the clubs are playing a great role in providing the athletes, so we have to make investments in those areas. We cannot sit back. INVESTING “We see countries such as Japan, China, Bahrain, and so on, investing and doing well, so it’s important for us to build on the success of the past by building a strong path for the future,” he added. “The base has been laid and we have to build on the successes that have been enjoyed over the years.” Wilson noted that there were some challenges along the way, but that the management team did well to resolve the issues that arose. “I am here to make sure I resolve all disputes in the interest of the country. Anything that will make the athletes do better, I am here to provide that sort of assistance,” he said.last_img read more

Patriots’ Brady wins 3rd MVP ahead of Super Bowl vs Eagles

first_imgFILE – In this Sunday, Jan. 21, 2018 file photo, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady throws a pass during the first half of the AFC championship NFL football game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Foxborough, Mass. For the third time, Tom Brady is the NFL’s Most Valuable Player. Brady added The Associated Press 2017 NFL MVP award Saturday night, Feb. 3, 2018 at NFL Honors to his wins in 2007 and 2010. (AP Photo/David J. Phillip, File)MINNEAPOLIS — For the third time, Tom Brady is the NFL’s Most Valuable Player.Now he goes for his sixth Super Bowl title, and perhaps with it a fifth MVP trophy for the NFL championship.ADVERTISEMENT “Thanks, thanks. Wait up. I literally just found out I was doing this like 20 minutes ago. So, I’ve got to read the text,” Edelman said.“No, but I’m joking. But serious, Tom said he wanted to say he’s very honored and humbled that he gets this award for MVP. Also, he wanted to thank his teammates, his friends, his family and the Patriots organization for going out and doing what they do.”Brady competed 385 of 581 passes (66.2 percent) for 4,577 yards and 32 touchdowns with eight interceptions as New England went 13-3 for the AFC’s best record. At an age when many QBs are deep into retirement, Brady is throwing deep — and short — as well as ever.Donald was the first pure defensive tackle to win the award since Warren Sapp in 1999. He said it means “everything. That’s one of the best to ever do it. So, even for my name to be next to that guy’s name is beyond a blessing. This is what you dream about as a kid, dreaming about playing in the NFL to have success like this, to be able to (play good enough) to win this trophy.”Gurley’s sensational turnaround season in which he ran for 13 touchdowns and caught six TD passes sparked an equally impressive reversal of fortunes by his team, which won the NFC West at 11-5.ADVERTISEMENT Michael Porter Jr. stays patient as playing time increases LATEST STORIES Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award FEU ends Ateneo’s 30-game win streak, UP stops UE in men’s volleyball Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Newsome sets focus on helping Bolts open new PBA season on right track Nueva Ecija warehouse making fake cigarettes raided, 29 Chinese workers nabbed OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anewcenter_img “The Saints got the rookies and we took home the offensive and defensive” player awards,” Gurley noted. “It just tells you the type of players we have on the team. We all help each other out, absolutely. We have some talent, but we’re nothing without the whole nine yards and everybody together. And we also have a coach who’s up for Coach of the Year.”A little while later, McVay was handed the coaching award.In his first season running a team and as the youngest head coach in NFL history, McVay led the Rams to a seven-game improvement. McVay, who turned 32 on Jan. 24, ran away with the voting with 35 votes to 11 for Minnesota’s Mike Zimmer.“What it means is we had a good season that I think we can build on,” McVay said. “But you have to earn it every single day. It’s a very humbling league.”The Rams’ hat trick of awards was not unprecedented. In 2003, Baltimore’s Ray Lewis was top defensive player, Jamal Lewis won best offensive player, and Terrell Suggs was Defensive Rookie of the Year. And in 1999, the St. Louis Rams had three award winners: Kurt Warner (MVP), Marshall Faulk (Offensive Player) and Dick Vermeil (Coach).New Orleans’ sweep of the rookie awards was the first since 1967, when Detroit running back Mel Farr and cornerback Lem Barney were honored. That was the first season for the top defensive rookie award.“You get caught up in the season, you don’t really get time to pat yourself on the back,” Kamara said. “But when the season is over you realize what you’ve done. I’ve kind of had to time to look back and say, I made some history this season.”Kamara shared duties with veteran Mark Ingram as the Saints won the NFC South. He rushed for 728 yards with a 6.1-yard average, and scored eight times. He also caught 81 passes for 826 yards, with five touchdowns.The 11th overall draft pick and first from his position selected, Lattimore was a shutdown defender as the Saints went 11-5. He had five interceptions and 18 passes defensed in 13 games, was a sure tackler and, by midseason, was someone opposing quarterbacks tended to avoid. He missed three games, one because of a concussion and two with an ankle injury.Allen returned from two devastating injuries to win the comeback honor. Allen missed half of the 2015 season with a kidney issue, then was lost in the 2016 season opener with a torn right ACL. There were questions if Allen would ever player at a high level again. OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson MOST READ He answered those emphatically this season with the best year of his career. Allen caught 102 passes for 1,393 yards and six touchdowns. He was targeted 159 times, nearly 10 per game.The awards were announced Saturday night at NFL Honors, when Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt received the league’s Walter Payton Award as man of the year. Watt, in his seventh NFL season and a three-time Defensive Player of the Year, had the goal of raising $200,000 for Hurricane Harvey relief in Houston. His fundraising did a whole lot more, bringing in an incredible $37 million in 19 days.“I’ve been fortunate to be on this stage and to win Defensive Player of the Year awards, but everything that you do on the field pales in comparison to what you do off the field,” Watt said. “And at the end of my life, if I’m remembered as a football player and a good football player and that’s all I’m remembered for, then I did a poor job in my life. When I go to my grave I want to be remembered as a guy who helped people out and who tried to do as much as he could off the field to be the best man he could be. I’m trying to make my family proud and my fans proud, and go out there and just be the best person I can be and leave the world a little bit better.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Nonito Donaire vs Naoya Inoue is BWAA 2019 Fight of the Year View comments Almazan vows to comeback stronger after finals heartbreak Brady added The Associated Press 2017 NFL MVP award Saturday night at NFL Honors to his wins in 2007 and 2010.

Reduced to a role of interested observer, Love has watched as coach Tyronn Lue force feeds numerous offensive sets and defensive principles to players who began the season in different systems. The new-look Cavs have had some great moments, and more than a few tough ones.Following Thursday’s home loss to Philadelphia, Lue said he planned to simplify things for his new players. On Friday, the Cavs watched film and afterward Lue said he’s still confident his club will mesh.“I feel good about this team,” Lue said. “No doubt about it. We got a lot of young talent. We got a lot of good pieces. We’re just trying to figure it out, put it together. We’ve only played seven games right now and those guys are still trying to figure it out.”There will be another adjustment when Love returns, but it won’t be as if Lue has to re-teach him how to play with LeBron James, J.R. Smith and Tristan Thompson, the four players remaining from Cleveland’s 2016 NBA title team.The Cavs may not be the same, but Love believes they remain strong.ADVERTISEMENT “We have guys who have been here and know exactly what to expect moving forward,” said Love, who is averaging 17.9 points, 9.4 rebounds and shooting 40 percent on 3-pointers. “So it’s on us to bring everybody along and have veteran guys push maybe the younger guys or the new guys through the process. …“The coaching staff has remained the same so we know what they want out of us.

(AP Photo/David Goldman, File)WASHINGTON — Washington Wizards point guard John Wall is not planning to change his style whatsoever when he returns from his latest knee surgery — whenever that might be.“I’m just going to be John Wall,” he said Monday after the second full-contact practice of his comeback from an operation on Jan. 31. “That’s all I know how to do.”ADVERTISEMENT “It’s been good. It’s been bad. We’ve played well, at times. Sometimes, we haven’t played well. Like when everybody was saying that they (were) playing better without me, that was great. The good thing is, I’m glad we did we did win those games when we did, because if we didn’t, right now, we would be in a situation where we might not be in the playoffs,” Wall said. “I feel like everybody should have given those guys credit for playing well.”Wall’s session with reporters on Monday was his first in Washington since having surgery on his left knee. He said he lost about 10 or 15 pounds during his rehab, without intending to.The No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft out of Kentucky had surgery on both of his knees before last season.This time, Brooks said, Wall has been able to do pretty much everything as usual in his pair of full-fledged practices, including dunk.“He’s getting his rhythm back. He can get to gaps and seams and angles not a lot of guys can get to. There’s only a handful of guys — maybe not even that — that can do it in the NBA,” Brooks said. “He’s one of the best players in the league.”ADVERTISEMENT Markelle Fultz returns to lineup for 76ers Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
