The 45-year-old Yorke, who played over 70 times for Trinidad and Tobago, will serve on FIFA’s Development Committee and will be the only member from the Caribbean.

Diego Costa returns tomorrow LONDON, England (AP): Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says striker Diego Costa will be available for Chelsea’s Premier League match against Hull tomorrow. The team’s top scorer missed last weekend’s win at Leicester with an apparent back injury amid reports of a dispute with the club that Conte did not deny. Conte says Costa “restarted having training sessions on Tuesday with the rest of the team. I think the player wants to stay at Chelsea. He’s very happy to play with us. This idea (to move) is far from his mind”. EPL managers tell FIFA to keep offside law LONDON, England (AP): Several English Premier League managers delivered a clear message to FIFA on Thursday: Preserve the offside law. Scrapping offside was the most radical of the ideas for changes to football floated by FIFA technical director Marco van Basten on Wednesday. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and Southampton counterpart Claude Puel were receptive to Van Basten’s proposal to introduce a new orange-card sanction that sees players temporarily removed from the pitch for up to 10 minutes. But the offside law should be sacrosanct, as removing it would change the dynamic of the game, according to Wenger.last_img read more

Youngster-Goldsmith meet attracts more than 60 teams

first_imgTomorrow’s Youngster-Goldsmith meet at the National Stadium has attracted the cream of the crop from among local high schools. Meet organiser Raffic Shaw is very upbeat after receiving massive entries. “More than 60 teams have entered for the meet and the expectation is that it will be a day of fierce competition all round, especially among the boys,” Shaw said. The Michael Clarke-coached Calabar High will out in full force as only top 400m runner Christopher Taylor will be missing. Sprint hurdler, World Under-20 finalist De’Jour Russell, along with the likes of Michael Stevens and World Under-20 representative, hurdler Aykeem Francis are all set to appear at the meet. The 100 metres is a late addition to the list of events at the meet and teams are being charged an extra $200 per athlete to enter the event. According to Shaw, there has not been any complaint about the extra charge. “These athletes want to run the 100m at the National Stadium as most of the meets this season have featured the 200m. They want to use the opportunity to ensure that they have good qualifying marks for the event going into next month’s Boys and Girls’ Champs,” Shaw said. Tomorrow’s meet will start at 8 a.m. with the men’s 400 metres hurdles for clubs and institutions, to be followed with the high school boys open, Class Two clubs and institutions, girls’ open and girls’ Under-18. Other events on the track will include the, 2000 metres steeplechase, open for both males and females, and all sprint hurdles for males and females. The sprint hurdles will feature two rounds, with the eight fastest times advancing to the finals. There will also be invitational 200m events for boys Classes One, Two and Three; 400m and 1,500m. In the field, action will get underway with Class One girls discus, high jump, for Classes Two and Four girls and Class Two boys. Other field events include the javelin for males and females, triple jump (males and females) and long jump (males and females).last_img read more

Kim Collins to retire after World Champs

first_img Distinguished career BASSETERRE, St. Kitts, (CMC): Kim Collins said he will retire from track and field following this year’s IAAF World Championships in London. The evergreen former World sprint champion said he was proud of his longevity in the sport, but the time was now right to bring his career to an end. “I think London will be my last,” said the 41-year-old Collins. “My oldest son is now 19. The kids are growing. But it’s been great for the younger generation as it shows that if you take care of your body, you can have a long-lasting career. “I’m making sure my body is healthy, I’m eating right and getting a lot stronger in the gym which many years ago I didn’t do. My body is getting a lot stronger and more flexible which helps me perform to the best of my ability and not get injured.” Collins added: “My first appearance was in 1995 when I was on the relay. In 1997 when I came back, I had a small injury. I ended up running 21 seconds for the 100 metres. It’s the slowest 100m ever run! “I also have the slowest winning time ever run at a World Championships (10.07). And I’m the oldest man ever to medal in the 100 at the World Championships. Now I’m looking for another.” Collins, whose name adorns a thoroughfare in his home country St. Kitts & Nevis, has had a distinguished career. He has won five medals in 10 appearances at the World Championships including a gold medal in the 100 in 2003. He said there was no better place to bow out of the sport than the British capital, where fans of the sport are knowledgeable and very appreciative of good performances. “The crowd is deafening sometimes,” he said. “Especially when they announce Usain Bolt, you hear the fans screaming and shouting. It’s amazing. “That’s the thing about track and field. The fans come out to show their love and support. I personally appreciate that. When the fans come and show love and they’re rooting for you, you want to make sure you do right by them.” The World Championships are scheduled from August 4 to 13.last_img read more

#KicksStalker: High schooler LaMelo Ball gets signature shoe

first_imgOSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson NCAA spokeswoman Emily James said in an email to The Associated Press that she could not speak specifically about LaMelo Ball but that his eligibility could be at risk if he directly profits from shoe sales.“Generally speaking, a college athlete or prospect paid for use of their athletics reputation or ability risks their future eligibility in that sport,” James said. “This includes profiting from the sale of items bearing the young person’s name. NCAA rules, however, do allow prospects to promote commercial products prior to enrollment provided it is not for pay.”LaVar Ball told ESPN on Thursday that his son’s amateur status is not a concern at the moment.“Who cares? If he can’t play, then he can’t play. It doesn’t mean he’ll stop working out and getting better,” he said. “Maybe in two years they’ll change the rule and he’ll be able to the NBA straight out of high school.”LaMelo Ball, a 6-foot-3 guard, averaged 26.7 points and 10 assists as a sophomore last year.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio 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 respite National Historical team rescues Amorsolos, artifacts from Taal Police seize P68-M worth of ‘shabu’ in Pasay MOST READ LATEST STORIES Marcosian mode: Duterte threatens to arrest water execs ‘one night’ Bishop Baylon encourages faithful in Albay to help Taal evacuees LaMelo Ball, who plays for Chino Hills High School, would still be eligible under California Interscholastic Federation rules as long as he’s not wearing his team’s uniform or logo while appearing in any advertisements or promotions for the shoe.The bigger concern is with the NCAA.

Pumaren gets the win over former player Pasaol in PBA D-League

first_imgJiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Newsome sets focus on helping Bolts open new PBA season on right track Pasaol, though, said that their time away from each other won’t change the kind of relationship they have as they even went out of their way to kid around before the game.“I talked to him and asked him if he still has an injury. He said that he’s ok,” the hefty forward related. “Manong even kidded that my butt is getting hot sitting on the bench.”He may be away from Pumaren and his job may be a lot different from his role with the Red Warriors, but Pasaol knows that the veteran mentor is always watching him from afar. And that’s why he’s just keeping the faith in his current coach Koy Banal as he aims to mesh with the Skippers.“I think I still need to learn coach Koy’s system.
