A proud Jamaican – Mayhew satisfied following history-making Youth Olympics bobsled run

first_img “Overall, I am satisfied with my performance here. I have gained a lot of experience now, and I hope that I can continue with bobsled along with the other things that I want to do,” added the aspiring pilot. Mayhew, a student of Charlemont High in St Catherine, had a decent push-off in his first run, registering a start time of 5.67 seconds. He was solid throughout, even if he did not generate the speeds he would have liked, topping off at 106.2 km/h (the slowest among the competitors) and having a brush with Turn 13 before crossing the line in 58.85 seconds. This was 1.92 seconds slower than Ivanov, who was the leader at that stage of the competition. His second run was slightly better as he again got a good push-off time 5.67 seconds (10th best) and improved his top speed to 107.5 km/h to end the course in 58.62 seconds. “I know I can do better I have done better before, so I know I can. So, hopefully, I can continue in the sport and improve and always represent my country and make everyone proud,” Mayhew added. The Jamaican has been a hit with the crowd and the international media in Norway since his arrival and it was no different on the course yesterday. “I am glad that I got the opportunity to compete here. I received a lot of support from everyone here. Everyone was cheering for me and it was an extraordinary feeling. I think it was a factor which helped me to get my fastest push time,” he shared. “The competition was close, especially for the top guys. It was good for me. I did my best push time today, so it was a good feeling that I improved that. My overall track time wasn’t a personal best or the best that I could have done, but it was enough to cross the finish line and finish 13th, so I am satisfied,” Mayhew said. His coach, Harry Nelson, is the man behind his development from a teenager who had little interest in competing in sport, to one of the best young Monobob athletes on the planet after a year of training. Nelson was overwhelmed with the youngster’s efforts. “It’s an overwhelming feeling,” Nelson told The Sunday Gleaner. “Seeing the support we as Jamaicans got and that even though we didn’t get the best time of the series, I am very proud of him. It was a proud moment to see him complete the track,” Nelson said. “And to get his personal best start time of 5.67 seconds is also a very good accomplishment for him. The pair will return to the island on Wednesday. Jamaican youngster Daniel Mayhew says he is extremely proud following his 13th-place finish in the Monobob competition at the Winter Youth Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway yesterday. The 17-year-old, who is the first Jamaican participant at the Winter Youth Olympic Games, registered times of 58.85 and 58.62 seconds in his two runs for a combined time of 1:57.47 which placed him 13th in the 15-man field taking part in the event. The gold medal was won by Germany’s Jonas Jannusch, who recorded a time of 1:54.29, with the silver medal going to Russia’s Maksim Ivanov, 1:54.22, Norway’s Kristian Olsen (1:54.53) took the bronze medal. Speaking to The Sunday Gleaner shortly after his run yesterday, Mayhew, who was remarkably only introduced to the bobsleigh event just under a year ago, said he would have loved to finish in the top three, but is very proud to have represented his country so well and against the odds. “I am a little sad that I didn’t get a medal, but I really feel good in myself and proud that I was able to come here and compete at the Youth Olympics and make everyone proud,” said Mayhew.

Bolt the ‘greatest’ – Michael Johnson

first_img “If he’s healthy, I don’t think anyone can stop him in the Rio Olympics,” said Johnson, a four-time Olympic and eight-time World Champion, who still holds the world 400m record of 43.18 seconds. The finalists for Sportswoman of the Year included Jamaican sprinter Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, as well as the United States trio of swimmer Katie Ledecky, footballer Carli Lloyd and tennis player Serena Williams. The award winners will be announced at a gala function in Berlin on April 18. A HEALTHY BOLT LONDON (CMC): American legend Michael Johnson has described Usain Bolt as the “greatest” sprinter in the history of track and field. Johnson’s tribute to the Jamaican runner was made after he was shortlisted for the Laureus world Sportsman of the Year award. American basketball player Stephen Curry, Argentine footballer Lionel Messi, British motor racer Lewis Hamilton, Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic, and American golfer Jordan Spieth have also been shortlisted. “Neither Jesse Owens, Carl Lewis nor myself have [sic] produced, in my opinion, the consistency and longevity that Usain Bolt has,” said Johnson, a member of the Laureus World Sports Academy. “So to this point he has to be considered the greatest.” Bolt currently holds the 100m and 200m world records and boasts six Olympic and 11 world titles.last_img read more

Queen’s stay unbeaten in urban competition

first_imgRAIN brought an early end to Thursday’s schedule of matches in the Inter-Secondary School Sports Association (ISSA) urban netball competition at the Leila Robinson Courts as only two of six senior matches were finished. Defending champions The Queen’s School remained unbeaten as they picked up their third win of the round, turning back the previously unbeaten St Catherine High 39-28. The Marvette Anderson-coached team is now on top in Group One with nine points and look set to top it off, with two matches to go. In a clash of unbeaten teams, Queen’s had to battle hard against a very young and fighting St Catherine team as the Phyllis Thompson-coached girls stayed toe-to-toe with their opponents, especially in the first two quarters. Queen’s led 6-5 after the first, and in the second quarter, St Catherine had many opportunities to score, but had too many turnovers and trailed 15-13 at the half-time break. It has been a trend this season for the champions to start out slowly then pick up in the second half, and it was the same story once again, with Queen’s lifting their game to win handsomely in the end. St Catherine, despite losing their first game of the season, remain second on six points. In the other completed senior game, Tarrant picked up their first win of the round, defeating Excelsior High 27-22 in a Group One encounter. All the junior games were completed and top teams Gaynstead High, Camperdown High, Norman Manley High and defending champions Queen’s remained unbeaten. Following their exciting tied game with the champions a week earlier, Camperdown High were once again involved in a thriller, battling to an exciting 24-24 tie with St Hugh’s. The east Kingston-based Camperdown are now on five points and are second in Group Two. The defending champions, in the meantime, picked up their second straight win as they got by Holy Childhood, 29-20, to be on seven points, topping a competitive Group Two. Both Norman Manley and Gaynstead stayed on course for a big clash on Tuesday as both teams picked up their third win in a row in Group One to be on nine points each. Gaynstead were very impressive in turning back Campion College 34-5, while Norman Manley got by Alpha 23-13. In other matches, Meadowbrook High stopped Excelsior High 27-16 and Ardenne High edged Tarrant High 24-22. – R.G.last_img read more

Goals FLOW at Sabina

first_imgExcelsior High cruised into the FLOW Super Cup quarter-finals  following a 5-0 victory against Ocho Rios High at Sabina Park yesterday. The Mountain View Avenue-based Excelsior were never troubled dominated with goals by Kimani DeCombre in the fifth minute,  Cadine Graham (12th), Ryan Spence (29th), Chad McKen (55th) and substitute Raewin Senior (87th).   With Ocho Rios having few shots towards goal Excelsior’s goalkeeper Romario Palma had little to do and the margin of victory could have been much greater.    Excelsior’s coach Shavar Thomas was satisfied with his team’s overall performance and the fact that the goals were scored by five different players. “We have been lacking in finishing and today the team spread the ball around with five different goal scorers,”  Thomas, nattily dressed in a sports blazer, said. “The team does not rely on one striker as we have depth and can move players around,” he added.    “At the end I’m pretty satisfied as we moved the ball around. We have a good group that can go deep in the competition,” Thomas pointed out. “I expected a better fight from Ocho Rios but my team did well today,” he shared. Ocho Rios coach Carlington Dodd said he was proud of his young team. “We are proud of the players. We wanted to fight but Excelsior are a better team. However, we will come back,” Dodd said.
