first_imgA judge has allowed disgraced, former lawyer Micahel Avenatti to be temporarily freed from federal jail in New York and allowed him to live in LA under house arrest.

Selkirk College Saints Load Up on Leadership

first_imgA pair of recruits who will suit up for the Selkirk College Saints in the upcoming season share the common goals of bringing back the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) title back to the West Kootenay and striving for excellence in the Business Administration Program.Brayden McCartney and Parker Sharp join the recruiting class for the upcoming 2017-2018 season where the team will look to return to its championship ways on the ice.“I chose Selkirk College because it’s not in a big city, I prefer a smaller community,” says McCartney, who was raised in Campbell River. “I also like to enjoy the outdoors and the area has a lot to offer. Selkirk College is known to have a very successful hockey program and the educational opportunities will help me pursue my career path.” McCartney finished his junior hockey career with the Campbell River Storm of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League (VIJHL) and before that was the captain of the Comox Valley Glacier Kings. Priding himself on being a shutdown defenceman, McCartney will be looked upon to fill holes on the Saints’ blueline left by players who graduated at the end of the 2016-2017 season.“Brayden is a strong, tough stay-at-home defenceman who loves to compete and make things difficult for his opponent,” says Saints’ head coach Brent Heaven. “Brayden makes a great first pass and has a very strong team-first mentality, he should bring some much needed edge to our defensive group.”Sharp grew up in Grande Prairie, Alberta and played last season with Dakota College at Bottineau (North Dakota) in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) where he helped the Lumberjacks to a national championship.“Selkirk College has a history of winning and standard of excellence that is unmatched in my opinion,” says the 5’11” centre. “What I will bring to the Saints is a heavy two-way game, excellent work ethic, constructive attitude, scoring ability and most importantly the ability to be a great teammate.”Sharp will help bolster a Saints’ offence that lost two of the best point producers in the team’s history when Ryan Edwards and Dallas Calvin graduated this past spring.“Parker is a skilled forward with good speed and a knack for the net,” says Heaven. “He is transferring from the NJCAA so he has had the opportunity to play college hockey at a high level. He should bring strong leadership, as well as drive and desire to win.”Both McCartney and Sharp will be classmates in the Business Administration Program that is based on the Castlegar Campus. The BCIHL season gets underway in September when classes resume for the 2017-2018 academic year.last_img read more

Half-time: QPR 0 Sheffield Wednesday 0

first_imgTjaronn Chery went closest to scoring for QPR during a first half which ended with Sheffield Wednesday’s Modou Sougou being stretchered off.Chery met Sandro’s volleyed diagonal pass with a crisp volley of his own, but his effort from the left-hand edge of the penalty area went wide of the near post.Chery saw another shot deflected wide and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas had a shot saved by Wednesday keeper Keiran Westwood.At the other end, Barry Bannan blazed wastefully wide after cutting inside Nedum Onuoha.And shortly before the interval, Clint Hill slipped and then poleaxed Sougou with a crunching last-ditch challenge to prevent the Owls winger pouncing on the loose ball 30 yards from goal.Chris Ramsey made three changes to the QPR side, with Hill, Massimo Luongo and Daniel Tozser coming in for Gabriele Angella, Leroy Fer and Karl Henry.QPR: Green, Onuoha, Hall, Hill, Konchesky, Sandro, Tozser, Phillips, Luongo, Chery, Emmanuel-Thomas.Subs: Smithies, Angella, Fer, Faurlin, Doughty, Hoilett, Henry.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Ali delivers crushing KO victory

first_img5 February 2007The first professional boxing match between women in South Africa, featuring Laila Ali, daughter of Muhammad Ali, against Gwendolyn O’Neil, was over almost before it began.Just 56 seconds into the first round at Johannesburg’s Emperor’s Palace, Ali had successfully defended her WBC and WIBA super-middleweight titles, improving her record to 24 wins, with 20 of them coming by way of knockout.Previously Ali had beaten O’Neill on a third-round knockout. “I was out to make it quicker than the last time,” she said, “but I did not expect it to be this quick.”Time for the fansGiven that the bout took such a little time, and given that Ali had to endure next to no blows, she spent time after the fight signing autographs and posing with fans.Looking back on her outing, she said she had been momentarily blinded after a jab from O’Neill, but that was the sum total of her discomfort.All it took for Ali to win were two stiff right hands. The first one dropped O’Neill, who then took a mandatory standing eight-count. She was clearly in trouble, however, and a second right felled her once more. Despite making it back to her feet, she was wobbly, and the referee counted her out.CelebritiesThe crowd that had come to see the contest included plenty of celebrities, led by former President Nelson Mandela, a noted boxing fan. Also at the bout were Winnie Madikezla-Mandela, ministers Ngconde Balfour and Makhenkesi Stofile, business magnate Tokyo Sexwale, boxers Brian Mitchell, Dingaan Thobela and Corrie Sanders, cricketer Makhaya Ntini and singer Yvonne Chaka-Chaka.At least in the main support fight they got to see more action as Cassius Baloyi won his fifth world title when he stopped Argentina’s Naszreno Ruiz in the third round of their IBO junior-lightweight contest.After knocking Ruiz to the canvas twice, Baloyi ended it early in round three with a right hook to the chin. It was the first time that Ruiz had been stopped in his 35-fight career.The victory improved Baloyi’s record to 33 wins and three defeats, with 18 of those wins coming by knockout.Supporting fightsIn another supporting bout, Kgotso Motau retained the SA middleweight title with a knockout victory in the opening round of his outing against Xolani Ngemtu. It was his tenth KO in 10 fights.Warren Joubert also scored a first-round victory, dispatching Mishack Khoza in their junior-lightweight contest, while Peter Mashamaite held on to his IBO Intercontinental title when veteran Mpush Makambi retired in the fifth round of their fight.Former Olympic boxer Ludumo Galada won the vacant SA featherweight title with a unanimous points win over Sydney Maluleka, improving his record to 11-0 in the process.

Break comes just in time for injured Krishna

first_imgAfter one-and-a-half years of intense training and competitions, Krishna Poonia has finally got a break and the ace discus thrower is recovering from her knee injury before she gets back in action in January.It was her knee injury during the Commonwealth Games which had almost forced her to shelve her Asian Games plans but the Athletics Federation of India (AFI) insisted her to go ahead for the Guangzhou event where she bagged a bronze medal.Ever since her Commonwealth Games gold medal, Krishna has been on a felicitation spree and is also consulting various doctors for her injured left knee, which she believes cost her a gold at last month’s Asian Games.With her sights firmly set on the London Olympics, Krishna said she is not ready to risk her knee any further and wants to be back in training in the first week of January.”Initially, I thought it (knee) would require surgery but we have consulted various doctors and they have suggested a few exercises,” Krishna told M AIL T ODAY on the sidelines of the Stree Shakti function where she was felicitated for her recent achievements.”I think it shouldn’t take more than 15- 20 days before I am fully fit and I hope to get back to training from January 1,” she added.Krishna sustained the injury in her second attempt at the Commonwealth Games but she had done enough in the first throw itself which was good enough to get her a gold. At the Asian Games too, it was her first throw which won her a bronze as after that her performance kept deteriorating.advertisementHowever, Krishna is well aware of her abilities and is confident that her best is reserved for the London Olympics in 2012.”It was a 61.94m throw that won me a bronze medal but during training sessions I have had better throws than that and that too on consistent basis.”I am sure I’ll be able to win a medal at the next Olympics and we have already planned a roadmap for that because I want to peak at the right time. It is very difficult for athletes to maintain their form throughout the year.”Though the World Championships in August is not what I am aiming for but it will be ideal to gauge my preparations,” Krishna said.But the journey hasn’t been easy by any means for Krishna, who hasn’t been able to spend much time with her nine- year- old son.last_img read more
