Olympic hopeful Sewon Okazawa redirects his focus to repair of flooded gym

first_imgAll four running machines at Okazawa’s gym in the city of Kanoya, Kagoshima Prefecture, were damaged by the flooding, which was caused by torrential rain, and memorabilia like gloves and banners were covered with mud.The 24-year-old said he was setting up a crowdfunding campaign to cover the repair costs.”I never thought this would happen. I underestimated the threat of a disaster,” he said.Okazawa has made considerable strides under the guidance of the gym’s head, Shunya Aratake, who took the boxer under his wing after he graduated from Chuo University in Tokyo. The Yamagata Prefecture native is expected to win a medal at the delayed Olympics in Japan next summer.For now, though, Okazawa said he will stop practicing and focus on the restoration, as many local residents who support him were also affected by the disaster.”I want to prove that you can accomplish anything if you keep looking forward and give it your all,” he said. “I want to show them.” KEYWORDS Tokyo 2020, Sewon Okazawa Boxer Sewon Okazawa, who will compete in the welterweight division at the Tokyo Olympics, said Tuesday he plans to help repair the damage done to his gym by flooding that has ravaged the nation’s southwest over the past week.”I want to go to the Olympics from this gym,” Okazawa said in a phone interview. “I want to give something back by helping return the gym to its usual condition.” GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES Boxer Sewon Okazawa removes damaged equipment from the ring on Tuesday at his gym in Kanoya, Kagoshima Prefecture, after it was hit by flooding. | KYODO RELATED PHOTOS Olympic hopeful boxer Sewon Okazawa helps clean his gym on Tuesday in Kanoya, Kagoshima Prefecture, after it suffered damage due to flooding. | KYODO IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5last_img read more

Waikato flatten Wellington

first_imgRugby Union Younger brother Jono claimed the bragging rights in the Gibbes family as Waikato flattened Wellington 43-31 in Hamilton on Wednesday. After more than a year without winning and 10 successive defeats, Jono’s Mooloos have ended the province’s worst ever losing streak by overcoming brother Chris’ Lions with a priceless Mitre 10 Cup victory in a crossover clash at FMG Stadium Waikato that upset the form book. Waikato looked a far improved outfit from the one that has started their Championship campaign in 2018 with three defeats with Jono Gibbes in charge, with Sevu Reece scoring a fabulous hat-trick, but Wellington were poor after making a host of changes to their side that walloped Southland last Friday. In a likely first in New Zealand’s provincial rugby history, two brothers were respective coaches of opposing sides but Waikato and Wellington have been heading in entirely different directions of late. The two Waikato brothers never took the field together for the Mooloos in their playing days and Jono Gibbes, with this thumping victory against Wellington, is perhaps laying the path for the province back towards the relative success his elder brother achieved during his spell as Waikato coach from 2009-12. Chris Gibbes, incidentally, was the last Waikato coach to lead the Mooloos into the finals in 2011 when they finished as runners-up to perennial Premiership champions Canterbury. His tenure since becoming Wellington coach last year has been almost flawless with the Lions taking Waikato’s place in the Premiership after earning promotion in 2017. But his decision to rest several of their key players wouldn’t pay off against the resurgent Mooloos, who can now look forward to a Ranfurly Shield challenge in Taranaki full of confidence. The likes of Ben Lam, Vaea Fifita and Wes Goosen were all given a breather to prepare for Wellington’s potentially decisive Premiership encounter with North Harbour, so Reece and first-five Fletcher Smith took centre stage for Waikato, whose forwards dominated a youthful Lions pack led by veteran No 8 Thomas Waldrom. Last Thursday’s 35-17 defeat in Auckland stretched Waikato’s losing streak another week and that date (August 30) signalled a year since the Mooloos last tasted victory. Wellington made mass changes – eight in their starting XV alone – from their previous outing, while Waikato just don’t have the same depth for such a luxury, with both suiting up again on Sunday against Harbour (home) and Taranaki (away) respectively. But it was Waikato’s night as Wellington slumped to their second defeat from four matches this season. Reece barged through Wellington’s line to break the deadlock and scored again four minutes later as the Mooloos ran out to a 12-0 lead. The Fijian winger was initially denied a hat-trick by the Television Match Official but Jordan Manihera then dived over to extend Waikato’s advantage. Malo Tuitama’s yellow card compounded Wellington’s woes in a first half that belonged to Waikato. Tolu Fahamokioa joined Manihera in the sinbin after a scuffle between the pair after the break as the Wellington prop appeared to punch towards the Waikato No 8’s genitals. The Mooloos would soon claim a bonus point when Raniera Takarangi galloped clear to score but two Wellington tries to Trent Renata and Isaia Walker-Leawere – either side of a Smith penalty for Waikato – gave the Lions a sniff. But Samisoni Taukei’aho then crashed over from a rolling maul to keep the Mooloos in the clear before Reece claimed his hat-trick by finishing off a brilliant move. Late tries to Matt Proctor, Tuitama and Losi Filipo earned Wellington a losing bonus point, but it did little to take the shine off Waikato’s return to winning ways. Waikato 43 (Sevu Reece 3, Jordan Manihera, Raniera Takarangi, Samisoni Taukei’aho tries; Fletcher Smith 5 con, pen) Wellington 31 (Trent Renata, Isaia Walker-Leawere, Matt Proctor, Malo Tuitama, Losi Filipo tries; Pakai Turia, Jackson Garden-Bachop 2 con).

Posted October 14, 2006 Location:Toronto Share this post 16,158 posts 0 What’s going to hurt the Chicago bid is what killed New York for 2012 – the lack of a track stadium. They can’t really rejigger Soldier Field without cutting the capacity. The other venues are reasonable – the United Center for hoops, Allstate Arena for gymnastics, UIC pavilion for women’s hoops, Northwestern Ryan Arena for boxing, Loyola’s gym, the old DePaul gym, the new soccer stadium, and so on. McCormick place would host a lot of minor events (fencing, weightlifting). Navy Pier and the lakefront could host beach volleyball and triathlon. And sailing, instead of being shunted off to a coastal city, could be held in Lake Michigan.There was also some talk of moving some events to northwestern Indiana and southeast Wisconsin.

Ex-Ole Miss WR Moncrief ‘drafted to score touchdowns’

first_imgThe last time the Colts and Texans met, Houston coach Bill O’Brien admittedly did not rank Indianapolis receiver Donte Moncrief among his highest priorities.The emergence of the Colts’ rookie receiver had not begun in earnest back in early October, at which point we’d seen only glimpses of what he might offer.So, when O’Brien and his staff cued up film of the Colts ahead of this weekend’s key AFC South matchup at Lucas Oil Stadium, he likely was taken aback by what he saw from Moncrief.“He’s definitely one of the most improved young players in our league,” O’Brien said this week.The Colts, it seems, agree. It’s why we’re seeing more and more of the third-round pick from Mississippi with each passing week.That’s happening in spite of the considerable challenge of earning playing time in the Colts offense for a rookie receiver – even one as immensely talented as Moncrief. That’s why, despite fans who are clamoring to see more of the game-breaking, downfield threat, the Colts have brought him along slowly.Moncrief and the Colts are aiming to make him a complete receiver, not just a deep-ball artist.“Learning defenses, learning how to release (off the line of scrimmage), how to be patient,” Moncrief cites some of the lessons he’s had to learn. “I just sit back and watch T.Y. (Hilton), Reggie (Wayne) and Hakeem (Nicks) and how they play without the ball in their hands. That’s the part that’s amazing. When you’re good even when the ball’s not in your hands, you’re really doing something.”But with every increase in his playing time, Moncrief is showing he can handle the workload.He’s proven himself a sharp route runner. He’s a willing blocker. He can effectively run shorter routes to go along with his well-documented ability to go deep.Playing in coordinator Pep Hamilton’s offense as a rookie receiver is no small task. It is unlike many other schemes, where receiver positions are often designated by X, Y or Z labels, which identify where they line up on the field. In those offenses, each letter represents a position unto itself, allowing a receiver to learn a very specific role and find his way onto the field.But the Colts offense uses no such designations. And Hamilton uses a seemingly endless number of personnel groups, meaning players have to be ready to play a wider variety of roles. For a kid like Moncrief, who recently turned 21 and is one of the youngest players in the NFL, it would be unsurprising if the mental aspects were overwhelming. But he’s handled the volume adeptly, and that’s going to earn him more playing time.Actually, that and the fact that he can effortlessly run by defenders on his way to the end zone.“It’s just a matter of how fast they can acclimate themselves to our system,” Hamilton said. “We pride ourselves in being multiple in not just our personnel groupings, but the different looks that we present to a defense. In our offense we don’t have an X receiver or a Z receiver; You play wide receiver. You’ve got to know all the different spots and learn concepts and not just try and memorize one position and one segment of routes. So it takes time and I think, more importantly, it takes time to develop that trust from the quarterback, to earn the quarterback’s trust.“But it’s obvious that he can make plays.”About that last part, the evidence is clear. Moncrief has just 27 catches this season, but he’s made them count. His 15.7 yards per catch ranks fifth among rookie receivers who are in their team’s regular rotations. That mark is better than first-round picks Kelvin Benjamin of the Panthers (14.4), Sammy Watkins of the Bills (14.2) and Odell Beckham of the Giants (14.1).Moncrief, as the Colts have emphasized, must learn to do it all: Run underneath routes, catch balls in traffic, run block. But make no mistake as to why he is in a Colts uniform.“He can do all of the above,” Hamilton said. “But I think we drafted him to score touchdowns.”Moncrief has just three of those, but more are likely to come. His snap counts are increasing, while struggling veteran Hakeem Nicks’ are decreasing. Against Cleveland last Sunday, Moncrief was on the field for 47 of the offense’s 81 snaps (59 percent), while Nicks played just 17 (21 percent). Among the rookie’s contributions was a diving 27-yard clutch catch on the game-winning drive.Moncrief has proven he can handle the voluminous playbook, earned the trust of quarterback Andrew Luck and has shown he can make game-changing plays (he has plays of 52 and 79 yards). But now that O’Brien and other coaches are onto him, he’s going to have to scale his next hurdle.“He’s going to start to attract a little bit more attention, so with that he’s going to have to adjust,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. “That will probably be the biggest obstacle that he’s going to have to face moving forward.”last_img read more

The presidential seal colors are okay, and they do match their fellow tenants, but “Washington Bullets” in red/white/blue is where it’s at. I never bought into that “the Bullets name glorifies crime in DC” nonsense, personally. Come on. No it doesn’t.

NZIHL All Star game jerseys

first_img Posted August 3, 2013 Followers 0 All Activity Location:Ottawa TorinK92 Loyal Tank Commander Sign in to follow this   2,215 NZIHL All Star game jerseys 4,424 posts Posted August 3, 2013 Forums Home TorinK92 TorinK92 NZIHL All Star game jerseys Members Location:San Jose Followers 0 SportsLogos.Net 767 Down in New Zealand, they are winding down there hockey season. There are a couple weeks left and this is the tightest competition they’ve ever seen. They still are not sure who will be playing in the league finals. Anyways, once the season is over, they have their annual all star game called “Skate of Origin”. It’s like the old North American vs. The World all star format where players play for they team they are from. In the Skate or Origin you have the South Island vs. the North Island (as NZ is made up of two main islands). This year the game will take place in the Auckland suburb of Botany.They’ve just released their jerseys and I think the idea behind the logos is an interesting one:The North Island team will wear the sting ray jersey as it has to do with the Maori legend on how the North Island was formed. (Legend here: http://www.newzealand.com/int/feature/the-legend-of-new-zealand/ )The South Island team will wear the jersey with the eagle which is for the extinct giant Haast’s eagle which used to call the South Island skies home before it became extinct.Feel how you will about the jerseys but I think the idea behind the logo choice is interesting… especially for the North Island team.More on the jerseys here: http://64.34.157.90/~nzihl062/?p=759 Share this post 196 Link to post Favourite Logos:Toronto Blue JaysHamilton Tiger-CatsBoston BruinsFlying ElvisNew Milwaukee Bucks Weagle Location:The Canadian Prairies -kj Link to post 196 Members Members I dig that.

Tottenham ‘main candidates’ to sign player – Part of duo with…

first_imgJust like they do everyday, Tuttosport list players who could be moved on at the end of the season, and Perisic continues to be one of the guys who will guarantee the Nerazzurri some good money.The exact amount planned by Inter isn’t revealed, since they want to make €110m with the sales of Perisic and Mauro Icardi altogether.And when speaking of possible destinations for the Croatian international, Tuttosport says he wants a move to the Premier League, where clubs are likely to pay with cash only.Embed from Getty ImagesTottenham Hotspur are named as one of the ‘main candidates’ along with North London rivals Arsenal.Spurs have been linked to Perisic for a while now, and the Italian press continues to encourage the move. Still, we lack seeing reports of real contacts between the clubs so far.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
