FLOW Journey To Champs excites Hydel

first_imgHydel High School was presented with $200,000 towards the school’s sports programme, during FLOW’s Journey to Champs stop, at the Ferry-based institution on Monday.The second stop on the Flow Journey to Champs route was well received as the students enjoyed the show provided by the telecommunications and media company.Corey Bennett, Vice Principal and head coach of the track and field team, said they were thankful for the assistance from FLOW as they continue preparation for the ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships, which will run from March 15-19 at the National Stadium.”We are very pleased; we would have been doing something special to attract support for three years. Any assistance we get is good. This is the third year that they (FLOW) are coming here and it was a good vibes,” Bennett told The Gleaner.Hydel High finished second behind champions Edwin Allen High in the girls’ section last year and they are hopeful of doing better by getting more points.”I thought we were quite prepared for Champs, but did not perform to expectations at Western Relays last Saturday. We still have some work to do in order to achieve our objective this year at Champs,” he disclosed.Stephen Miller, FLOW’s sponsorship manager, said this year’s ‘Journey’ that started at Jamaica College two weeks ago provided a big buzz.”It is good, Champs fever is in the air, the atmosphere is electric. The students and athletes are eagerly anticipating the big event. We are pleased to continue to contribute to the schools,” he added.The entertainment saw the students having a good time as popular deejay Chi Ching Ching gave a good performance.Champs title sponsors, GraceKennedy, were also on hand and provided products for the students.The next stop on the FLOW Journey to Champs route will be at Kingston College this Friday, starting at 1 p.m.last_img read more

Spotlight on 110m hurdles

first_imgDOHA, Qatar:Seven Jamaicans will be in action on today’s first of 14 Diamond League meets in this the seventh year of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) track and field series.Among the Jamaicans slated to face the starter when the 23-event meet gets under way at 9:41 a.m. (Ja time) in Doha, Qatar, are Hansle Parchment and Omar McLeod. The two are in a star-studded 110m hurdles field, which will also feature reigning Olympic champion Aries Merritt and his American compatriot David Oliver.Twenty-two-year-old McLeod, fresh off his 60m hurdles World Indoors triumph and his sub-10 100m run, will be aiming to give an impressive showing on his first Diamond League outing.”I am just trying to go out there and have fun and try to execute a good race. I just want to make a great debut to my Diamond League season,” McLeod told The Gleaner.World and Olympic medallist Parchment opened his season with a 13.42 stroll but believes the conditions in Qatar will see him clocking an improved time.”The temperature is much better, so it is one thing to look forward to. I am feeling good so far, so I am just going to go out there to execute my best race possible on the day,” Parchment said.The country’s most successful Diamond League athlete, 400m hurdler Kaliese Spencer, will renew her rivalry with two-time reigning World Champion and Olympic bronze medallist Zuzana Hejnova of the Czech Republic.The Jamaican looked on course for a Diamond Trophy last year only for Hejnova to win the last four meetings and pip her to the prize.Spencer, who is celebrating her 29th birthday today, won the 400m hurdles Diamond Race in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2014. She has, however, since changed coaches, having left the Stephen Francis-led MVP to join Bert Cameron’s Blazers.Having opened her season with a modest 56.39, Spencer is hoping to gift herself a victory with a much improved time.”It is my 29th birthday, so I want to come out with a victory. That would be something special,” Spencer said. “It would be good to run a 54 (seconds) right now. It is a bit early. Anything faster, I would be grateful, but somewhere in that region.”TRIPLE JUMPER SHANIEKA THOMASThe first Jamaican in action will, however, be triple jumper Shanieka Thomas, who comes in with the longest jump so far this season after her personal best effort of 14.57m in Kingston last month.The 24-year-old can expect to face strong competition from two-time World Champion and Olympic silver medallist Caterine Ibarguen of Colombia.The very competitive women’s 100m field will feature two Jamaicans, Veronica Campbell-Brown and Simone Facey.Campbell-Brown, who won the Diamond Trophy in the event in 2014, is looking forward to the competition.”I am excited. My objective is just to go in the race and focus on what I have to do and run a good race,” said Campbell-Brown.The Jamaican duo will have for company Dafne Schippers, who took silver in the event at last year’s World Championships; American Tori Bowie, who shares the world-leading time in the event, 11.00 seconds; with Facey also in the line-up.Nickel Ashmeade will line up in lane eight when he goes against Qatar’s Ogunode Femi in the men’s 200m. The fastest man in the field so far this year will be American Ameer Web (19.91), and he will be joined by compatriots Walter Dix and Isiah Young.This season’s Diamond League will feature a new points structure, which sees the top six finishers in each event gaining points instead of just the top three.ryon.jones@gleanerjm.comlast_img read more
