Nelson is still a talent for the future – Waite

first_imgCoach of Arnett Gardens FC Jerome Waite believes that Lamar ‘Wanka’ Nelson is still a big talent for the future following the midfielder’s return to competition three years after a serious right leg injury.Nelson made his return for Arnett Gardens in a Red Stripe Premier League fixture against Harbour View on December 11 at Harbour View Stadium. He played for the last five minutes in the game that his team won 1-0.”We want to give him (Nelson) time to get back on track with his career,” said Waite, who also coached Nelson at Charlie Smith high school. “Wanka has gone through surgery and rehabilitation, and also went throughpre-season training with the team.”Nelson missed the first 14 matches in the RSPL 2016-17 season and played in the last three games.”He will be getting more playing time as he needs to get back mentally as well. Nelson has shown a lot of improvements physically, as he is willing to do the necessary work.PROMISING MIDFIELDER”He is one of the better local players around and is still a talent for the future,” Waite said about the promising midfielder.Nelson, who lit up the Premier League for hometown club Arnett Gardens in the 2012-13 season and earned his first and only Reggae Boyz cap in the 2012 Caribbean Cup in Antigua and Barbuda, has been sidelined for three years.The 25 year-old who has a knack for scoring spectacular goals, suffered the right leg injury, while representing Waterhouse in the RSPL in November 2013, just a few months after he was transferred from Arnett Gardens.Arnett Gardens paid for the player’s surgery and he returned to the Trench Town-based club after his one-year deal ended at Waterhouse two years ago.last_img read more

Dragic getting ready for the season, by not playing

first_img“The big key is I want him feeling fresh, peaking by Game 1,” Spoelstra said. “He’s in great shape, great spirits and we’ll just keep moving forward.”Dragic, Miami’s leading scorer last season at just over 20 points per game, expects to be full-go when Miami’s regular season starts Wednesday in Orlando. He said Spoelstra recognized how much the European title run — the emotional toll if nothing else — took out of him.“I always want to practice and play,” Dragic said. “But sometimes your body or your head doesn’t allow you to do that. He’s good at reading players. He knows what you need. Maybe he saw something that probably was not hard to see. So I crashed a little bit, came back and now it’s on to a new goal here in Miami.”A look at Wednesday’s preseason games:CELTICS 108, HORNETS 100ADVERTISEMENT It has been a preseason like none other for Dragic, who spent his summer carrying his native Slovenia to its first European championship and winning MVP honors at that tournament. But it also meant Dragic came back to Miami late last month worn down by the physically and mentally spent from the grind of that tournament, so Heat coach Erik Spoelstra decided to basically not use his starter for most of the preseason.Dragic didn’t like the idea at first. He knows now that it was the right move.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smog“I feel like my head is clearing,” Dragic said Wednesday before sitting out Miami’s home preseason game against the Washington Wizards. “I’m OK. Physically, I feel great. Mentally, I’m hungry again for basketball. That’s what we want to achieve and that’s the feeling we want for that first game.”Dragic hasn’t officially been ruled out for Miami’s preseason finale in Kansas City on Friday against Philadelphia, but he isn’t likely to play.

Nadal withdraws from ATP Finals after loss to Goffin

first_imgRafael Nadal of Spain returns to David Goffin of Belgium during their singles tennis match at the ATP World Finals at the O2 Arena in London, Monday, Nov. 13, 2017. (AP Photo/Kirsty Wigglesworth)LONDON — Rafael Nadal will have to wait another year to win the ATP Finals.The world No. 1 withdrew from the elite, season-ending tournament after losing his opening match to David Goffin 7-6 (5), 6-7 (4), 6-4 on Monday at the O2 Arena.ADVERTISEMENT Nadal’s exit simplifies Federer’s path to a seventh ATP Finals title. The winner of 2017′s other two Grand Slams returns to action against Alexander Zverev on Tuesday after defeating Jack Sock on Sunday.Making his debut at the ATP Finals earlier, Grigor Dimitrov withstood a comeback attempt from Dominic Thiem and held on for a 6-3, 5-7, 7-5 victory.The sixth-ranked Dimitrov maintained his focus despite being narrowly denied a chance to serve out the match in the second set, and then being broken at his first chance in the third.“Every year you learn more about yourself, about the game, about the players,” Dimitrov said. “I’ve done also a lot of work on and off the court. It’s finally starting to kind of, like, come together.” OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene MOST READ Nadal pulled out of the Paris Masters at the quarterfinal stage 10 days ago and admitted ahead of the ATP Finals on the indoor hard-court he struggles on, that his knees, which have caused him trouble throughout his career, were still “not perfect.”Despite having qualified 13 consecutive times for the ATP Finals, only eight of which he’s been fit enough to compete in, Nadal has never won the event.

Goffin secured a double break to be 4-1, but Nadal rallied once more. He could retrieve only one of the breaks.“It was tough even if he was not moving 100 percent,” Goffin said. “He was hitting the ball really hard. It’s never easy to finish a match, to finish a set against him. Even if I lost four match points in the second, I had no regret. I kept going in the third.”Nadal ominously waved goodbye as he left the court, bringing to an end another auspicious season. He won his 10th French Open in June, added a third U.S. Open in September and, at 31, became the oldest man to end the year atop of the rankings.With the Australian Open still over two months away, Nadal was confident playing in London wouldn’t have done any lasting damage.“The good thing is (this injury is) nothing new,” Nadal said. “Everybody of my team, we have the right experience on this thing. We hope to manage it well, to have the right rest, the right work, and try to be ready for the beginning of the next season.”ADVERTISEMENT View commentslast_img read more

(KRT via AP Photo)SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea held a massive military parade highlighted by intercontinental ballistic missiles in its capital on Thursday, just one day before South Korea hosts the opening ceremony of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.Kim Jong Un, dressed in a long black winter coat, was shown walking on a red carpet with his wife at the beginning of the event, which North Korea’s state-run television broadcast hours after it was over.ADVERTISEMENT Top Pentagon general: US maintains ‘high levels of readiness’ regarding N.

That in itself is a major development — she is one of his closest confidants, holds a senior party position and her trip would mark the first time any member of the ruling Kim family has visited the South since the Korean War. She will meet South Korean President Moon Jae-in at a luncheon, Moon’s spokesman said Thursday.The North’s conciliatory moves related to the Olympics have generally been welcomed in the South. The parade, however, was seen as more sensitive.Though possibly best known for their legions of goose-stepping troops, North Korean military parades are the country’s primary means of showing off its most recent advances in military technology — sometimes with aspirational mock-ups.The North unveiled five new kinds of missiles at its most recent major military parade last April.

The coverage of the parade seemed heavily edited.North Korea had said it would hold a big event to mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of its military. Feb. 8 has been seen as a less important founding anniversary but made something of a comeback in 2015 and was elevated further this year in part because it is the 70th — a nice round number.The parade also featured tanks, armored vehicles, jets flying over the square in formation to make a “70,” and thousands of people dressed in red, white and yellow creating the letters “Kim Jong Un” in Korean and the ruling Workers’ Party’s symbol of the brush, hammer and sickle. The North also rolled out what appeared to be a Hwasong-12 intermediate range missile, which it flew over Japan twice last year as it stepped up the aggressiveness of its weapons tests.In this image taken from video footage, North Korean military personnel salute as they lay flowers in front of giant statues of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il on Mansu Hill in central Pyongyang, Thursday, Feb. 8, 2018.

Later, North Korea displayed its most powerful strategic weapons, including what appeared to be Hwasong-14 and Hwasong-15 ICBMs rolled out on launcher trucks. Analysts believe the missiles, which were successfully tested last year in three launches, could potentially reach deep into the U.S. mainland when perfected.Virtually all foreign media were excluded from the event.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkIn a televised speech, Kim said the parade marks North Korea’s emergence as a “global military power” despite facing the “worst sanctions.”He called for his military to maintain a high level of combat readiness against the United States and its “followers” so that “invasive forces cannot infringe upon or harass the republic’s sacred dignity and autonomy even by 0.001 millimeters.” OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Almazan vows to comeback stronger after finals heartbreak Newsome sets focus on helping Bolts open new PBA season on right trackcenter_img Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson MOST READ Nonito Donaire vs Naoya Inoue is BWAA 2019 Fight of the Year Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew View comments Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Santos says long break to help San Miguel find remedy after blowing leads

first_imgIt can be said that San Miguel wasn’t the picture of consistency in the first two games of the PBA Philippine Cup finals.ADVERTISEMENT San Miguel’s worse collapse in the series was in the opener when it saw its 20-point lead, 72-52, in the third quarter dissipate into the fourth when the Hotshots outscored the Beermen 30-14 in the last 12 minutes.Magnolia eventually took Game 1, 105-103.Santos said the only way to stop Magnolia from catching up to them, especially in the latter moments of the game, is to give it the respect from the first minute until the final buzzer.“You really need to respect the Hotshots from start to finish because they can really blind side you,” said Santos who is averaging 21.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks so far in the series.Game 3 is on Easter Sunday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.ADVERTISEMENT In Liverpool, Man United sees the pain and path to recovery Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina MOST READ Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew LATEST STORIES Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio 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 respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Recto seeks to establish Taal rehab body to aid community, eruption victims Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil The NBA is about to set another 3-point record The four-peat seeking Beermen have blown two 20-point leads in both games as they failed to build a commanding 2-0 series lead heading into the break and instead settled for a 1-1 tie with the underdog Magnolia.San Miguel’s 92-77 victory in Game 2 may have ended in a rather decent manner for the Beermen but they squandered a 21-point lead, 73-52, late in the third period and allowed the Hotshots to trim the margin to just eight, 75-68, early in the fourth.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 crownCaptain and 2013 MVP Arwind Santos said the week-long break will help them find a solution in preventing those collapses.“The benefits of this break is of course we can rest up, actually even the other team can rest,” said Santos in Filipino in a chat with Inquirer. “And for us, this break can also help us find a way from collapsing when we have a big lead.” Scarlett Johansson, Sterling K.
