THE Fort Wellington boys’ 4x400m team of Godwin Humphrey, Rue Chester, Okemi Porter and Dave Torrington yesterday struck gold in the High School boys’ 4×400 at the Penn Relay, as the competition entered its final day at Franklin Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.The quartet clocked 3:24.41s to top the league of 11 teams and defend their title in the event. The team also improved their timing, shaving seconds off the 3:26.95s that they clocked last year in the same event.The 4x400m was Fort Wellington’s second relay, as they were also in the High School boys’ 4x100m small school heats. That team comprised Chester, Humphrey, Jeremy Campbell, and Loneil Marks and clocked a time of 46.84 seconds. With almost 300 entries in this race,the boys were facing a tough task to make it through to the next round.The Fort Wellington boys were participating at the event along with another all Guyanese team from the Guyana Technical Institute.
Sergey Portnov, Chief Executive of Parimatch, has emphasised how the CIS and wider Eastern European betting markets could track the UK’s performance within a three-year span, noting fast-changing developments. However, Portnov warns that CIS ambitions can only be matched if regulatory gaps are fulfiled. Speaking at SBC’s ‘Betting on Sports 2019‘ Conference, Portnov discussed the current development of the CIS market whilst underlining difficulties it incumbents currently face: “The market is developing quickly on multiple levels. Regulation becomes more deep so right laws are written and right percentages are given. Now Ukraine is about to regulate, ten years in prohibition but now finally it’s going to get regulated. “The laws and regulations in Russian speaking countries its there, it allows you to work but it has a lot of flaws and a lot of gaps. Those gaps today they preclude foreigners to come in and operate freely because those gaps are dangerous.”With this being said and despite the current ‘pitfalls’ it currently faces, the Parimatch CEO remained positive in his outlook regarding the potential development that he believes the CIS market can expect in the coming years. He added: “As time goes by things get refined and become more modern. I would say today that the market, if we look at it as a whole, is behind the UK maybe seven years. But every year now counts as two or three, so in two or three years time you can catch up. I’m sure in five years time it is going to be a properly regulated market, everything legal, everything monitored and all players KYC’ed so it’s going to be good. “Now at this stage it’s a bit dark waters, even though it looks white on paper, but we know inside you have a lot of dangerous pitfalls and those pitfalls are scaring foreigners big time. But this will change, the market is growing. People love sport, penetration of betting is growing so once everything is prospering it will eventually become proper system.” As well as the growth of sports betting within the region, Portnov also cited that patience would be needed from those involved within the market. Moreover, the Parimatch CEO eluded to the fact that the growth of the CIS market mirrored his desire to branch away from the stereotypes that are directed at those who work within the Eastern European market.Portnov concluded: “There is no big system globally today which is in chaos. Everything that gets big eventually get somehow regulated because governments, auditors and everybody’s jumping on it and try to put an order into that chaos. “This is taking place now, foreigners just need to be patient. Time will come. For us it’s also an opportunity to fully become wide, even though the markets will become more competitive. But competition afterall brings out the best in you, if you’re not competitive then you don’t deserve those revenues. “We are prepared for competition and prepared to capitalise on our business as a whole, because right now when you say I work in Kazakhstan, Russia or Ukraine people say ‘great but kind of dodgy’. We don’t want to be associated as dodgy, those markets are competitive as hell, probably more competitive than in Europe.” Related Articles Andrey Astapov, ETERNA LAW: Ukraine faces critical choices as gambling finish line nears August 21, 2020 Share Submit StumbleUpon Parimatch hails top talent of inaugural ‘Universal Sports & Games Hackathon’ August 14, 2020 Ukraine gambling bill enacted by President Zelensky August 11, 2020 Share
Share on: WhatsApp Firstly, the Senegalese beat Robertson to Doucoure’s low cross to stab home at the near post.Six minutes later, Sarr had too much pace for a flat-footed Liverpool defence as he raced onto Deeney’s through ball and showed fantastic composure to lift the ball over the advancing Alisson.Sarr also had a big part to play in Watford’s third as he pounced on a short passback and had the vision to pick out Deeney, who lofted the ball nonchalantly over Alisson to make it 3-0.Watford had thrown away a lead in three of their last four Premier League games to fall back into the bottom three.But they never looked in any danger of doing so again as they moved back out of the relegation zone on goal difference.Sarr should even have had a famous hat-trick with his final touch as he curled wide when one-on-one with Alisson. Klopp finally beatenLiverpool’s run: WWDDWDWDWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWDWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWLWatford, United Kingdom | AFP | Liverpool’s 44-game run without defeat in the Premier League came to a crashing end as relegation-threatened Watford thrashed the European champions 3-0 on Saturday.Ismaila Sarr’s double and Troy Deeney’s strike 18 minutes from time ended Liverpool’s hopes of romping to a first league title in 30 years with an unbeaten season as they lost in the league for the first time since January 2019.Jurgen Klopp’s men still enjoy a 22-point lead at the top of the table, but their sluggish return from a two-week winter break earlier this month was finally punished.After single-goal victories over struggling Norwich and West Ham either side of a Champions League defeat at Atletico Madrid, Liverpool were comprehensively beaten at Vicarage Road.A 55-point gap separated the sides before kick-off, but the out-of-sorts visitors failed to muster even a single effort on goal in the first 45 minutes.Gerard Deulofeu’s dipping effort just did not come down in time as it landed on the roof of the net before he teed up Abdoulaye Doucoure, who saw his shot deflected behind by Virgil van Dijk.Deulofeu then had to be stretchered off with a nasty looking knee injury that seems certain to end his season.Watford’s heads did not drop without one of their most dangerous players, though, as only Alisson Becker’s fleetness of foot allowed the Brazilian international to save from Deeney deep into first-half stoppage time.Andy Robertson’s driven effort finally forced Ben Foster into a save early in the second half, but just as Liverpool were beginning to build up a head of steam, they were stung by two quick strikes by Sarr.
I have no idea what happened last Sunday when the Pittsburgh Steelers played and defeated the Green Bay Packers 37-36 at Heinz Field. How can your offense make this trip and that trip into the enemy’s territory and come away with 3-pointers yet score the winning touchdown as time expires with first year wideout Mike Wallace making a diving last second ballerina-like grab with no time left on the clock to seal the win. Go figure. Steelers center Justin Hartwig said, “The way the game ended was incredible, especially that last play. It was obviously pretty reminiscent of the Super Bowl.”Big Ben Roethlisberger led the team to victory giving mouth to mouth resuscitation to the Black and Gold’s post-season hopes and slinging the pigskin for a whopping 503 yards.With all of the justifiable hoopla over the victory, may I briefly pose as the devil’s advocate? Steelers kicker Jeff Reed contributed three field goals toward the victory, but if the Steeler offense converts just one of those opportunities, the “duufuss” onside kick called by Mike Tomlin and the heroics provided by Big Ben and Mike Wallace would have likely been unnecessary and Wallace could have tiptoed into the locker room as the play clock ran out as opposed to having to do a “nutcracker suite”-type move on Packers cornerback Josh Bell in the corner of the end zone. The only thing Wallace was missing was a pair of leotards and a tutu. The catch was reminiscent of a performance at Heinz Hall instead of Heinz Field.The Packers and their quarterback Aaron Rogers seemed to have been more than happy to make the acquaintance of Steeler cornerback William Gay, but I am certain there was not much post-game gaiety originating for Mr. Gay’s stall after the close win. Also safeties Ryan Clark and Tyrone Carter performed as if their hands were cuffed behind their backs with platinum handcuffs, wearing lead-toed, and not steel-toed boots.I am livid about the absence of defensive back Troy Polamalu. Instead of seeing him doing shampoo commercials, I want to see him on the field. Some of those boys in the secondary need a little assistance. It seems to me that Troy’s alleged private workouts in “Cali” when the rest of the team is here busting their butts in OTA’s and minicamp do not seem to be cutting the mustard. His “workouts” need to overseen by a personal trainer over at the Southside as opposed to a muscle-bound moron somewhere on Venice beach.To add insult to injury, the so-called brain cramp suffered by head coach Mike Tomlin allowing an attempted onside kick with a tad bit more than four minutes left in the final quarter leads me to believe that Mr. Tomlin and the headmaster of the New England Patriots, Bill Belichick, have been burning the midnight oil in the celluloid room and blowing up each other’s cell phones attempting to form a new fraternity called the brotherhood of stupid coaching decisions or the B.S.C.D. for short.Well folks, you no longer have to deal from a theoretical perspective because you now will have it straight from the horse’s mouth. Tomlin had this to say according to the ShutDown Corner football blogsite. “I’ll be very bluntly honest with you. Based on the way the game was going in the second half … first of all, I felt like, with the element of surprise, we had a chance to get it. But if we didn’t get it, and they were to score, then we would have the necessary time on the clock to go down the field and score, match their score.“Plan A didn’t work. We got the ball, but we were illegal, and that was the correct call. But it kind of unfolded the way you kind of envisioned it. We had 30 minutes of evidence there to show that we could drive the ball on them. We also, conversely, had 30 minutes of evidence to show they could drive the ball on us. That’s why we took that risk when we did.”What made Tomlin think that he could pull off such shenanigans with his special “ed” teams? The not very special teams of the Black and Gold have been atrocious under normal conditions so what made Mike Tomlin think that these same lads could function normally under these adverse and pressure-filled circumstances when their performance has been less than stellar in the past even under the most ideal situations?I am glad for the sake of the third year head coach that his players had the intestinal fortitude to bail him out.The Steelers may or may not advance into the 2009 post-season tournament but one thing is clear. They are not the losers as some would suggest and if the Steelers defeat the Ravens next week and the Dolphins thereafter with a little help from their friends and the refs, (who seem to be blind to the blatant holding on linebacker James Harrison on almost every play), anything can happen.(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at: [email protected])
