No record wipe likely

auhyzzlh

first_img The European Athletics proposal calls for a cleanse of records set before 2005. Applied to the Jamaican track and field records list, such a move would erase many national standards. These include Merlene Ottey’s 200 metres mark of 21.64 seconds. Lorraine Fenton’s name would disappear, along with her national 400 metres record of 49.30 seconds. The same would happen to Winthrop Graham and his 400 metre hurdles record of 47.60 seconds. Those national records were set in 1991, 2002 and 1993, respectively. The record wiping proposal is likely to be on the floor for discussion when the IAAF assembles in London for the World Championships this August. Hard work and dedication Don’t expect easy passage of the suggestion of a track and field world record wipe. Based on the response by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) to a similar suggestion earlier this year, adoption of a European Athletics Association proposal is unlikely. If the earlier response is anything to go by, the IAAF is concerned about penalising clean athletes. In January, the International Sports Press Association (AIPS) had suggested that a world record cleanse “would be healthy to begin a new era of athletics that would give hope to coming generations”. The suggestion came in an open letter to IAAF president Sebastian Coe from AIPS president Gianni Merlo. National standards In response, an IAAF letter accepted that “systems have, in the past, produced athletes that have probably not achieved records legitimately”. “However,” the letter continued, “that’s a very different thing from penalising clean athletes who have gone about breaking records based upon the hard work and dedication during their young lives, with clean coaches and clean federations.” Noting that there was a similar proposal from UK Athletics, the governing body of the sport in Britain, the letter defended clean records. “If the records list is scrapped,” it essayed, “not only do these clean athletes risk losing their place in history, they face the implication that their records have not been achieved cleanly.”last_img read more

Kipchoge falls 26 seconds short

ronplzeq

first_imgMONZA, Italy (AP):Olympic champion Eliud Kipchoge was 26 seconds short of running the first marathon in under two hours yesterday.Kipchoge ran the 26.2 miles (42.2 kilometres) around an oval track in an impressive two hours, 25 seconds, unofficially smashing Dennis Kimetto’s world mark of 2:02:57 by 21/2 minutes and raising hopes that one of world sport’s most famous barriers can be broken.”We are human. We are going up the tree … I have lifted a branch and I am going on to the next one,” Kipchoge said.The time will not be an official world record sanctioned by the IAAF due to variables like pacers entering mid-race and drinks being given to runners via mopeds.Considered the best marathon runner in the world, Kipchoge broke his personal best of 2:03:05, set at the London Marathon last year. Kimetto set the world mark in Berlin in 2014.Organisers first listed Kipchoge’s time as a second faster, then changed it to 25 seconds off the two-hour mark.last_img read more

Australia gets crucial 1-1 draw with Denmark at World Cup

first_imgVolcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Australia again took a defensive stand against Denmark, which was back at the World Cup after missing out on the tournament in Brazil. The Danes were coming off a 1-0 victory over Peru on Saturday in Saransk. Poulsen, who plays for German club RB Leipzig, scored the lone goal.It is the fifth World Cup appearance for the Danes, who reached the quarterfinals in 1998.Australia was also making a fifth trip to the World Cup. The team’s best showing was in the 2006 quarterfinals.Moments after Mathew Leckie’s early header for Australia sailed over the goal, Eriksen sent a left-footed shot over goalkeeper Mathew Ryan’s outstretched arms.The Danes held the lead until the yellow on Poulsen, which was not without controversy. Video replay also gave Peru a penalty against the Danes in the opener, but it wasn’t converted.“I think after today I don’t like the system. It’s the second match it’s been used against us,” Eriksen said. “If you want to use the VAR for penalties, you should also use it for free kicks. Two matches in a row, that’s bitter.”After the pleas from Denmark’s players to the referee went unheard, Schmeichel had a few words with Jedinak to rattle him. It didn’t work.“You still have to stay focused in getting good contact and maintain that focus,” said Jedinak, who plays for Aston Villa.Pione Sisto nearly gave the Danes the advantage just after the halftime break, but his shot went to the right of the goal. Australia added some firepower in the 68th, bringing on 19-year-old Daniel Arzani as both teams scrambled for a winning goal.Denmark’s opening victory over Peru was marred by the loss of starting midfielder William Kvist, who fractured two ribs and is likely to miss the rest of the tournament. He was replaced in the starting lineup against Australia by Lasse Schone. Going into the tournament, No. 36 Australia was the lowest-ranked team in Group C with the others all in the top 12.With a loss to France in the opener, a defeat Thursday would have made it nearly impossible for the Socceroos to advance to the next stage. Denmark, meanwhile, won its first match against Peru.In the later group match on Thursday, France’s 1-0 victory eliminated Peru while securing a spot in the knockout round for the French.Australia lost to 1998 World Cup champion France 2-1 last Saturday in Kazan, with both French goals coming as the result of video technology. But the score didn’t reflect the Socceroos’ gritty defensive performance.“You’ve got to put those frustrations aside,” Jedinak said. “You don’t put two performances in like that if you’re frustrated. You’ve got to just believe, and that’s what we do. We have belief in what we’re doing. We’re believing in the structure and how we’ve been training and preparing. And we’ll continue to do that. It will be the same going forward.”ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Harvey Weinstein rape trial Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina The 38th-minute penalty was set up after Denmark forward Yussuf Poulsen was called for a handball following a video review. Poulsen was also cautioned by the referee and will be suspended for the team’s final group match against France because of yellow card accumulation.The goal was Jedinak’s second from the spot at this year’s World Cup, and it snapped Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel’s five-match streak of shutouts for the Danes.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown“It’s more just composing and staying concentrated, regardless of the situation, regardless of where you’re standing and regardless of what’s going on around you,” added Jedinak, who has converted 16 straight penalties.Christian Eriksen scored in the opening minutes for Denmark, which has gone unbeaten in 17 straight international matches.
