ANDERSON Peters became only the second athlete in history to claim a gold medal for Grenada at the IAAF World Championships in Doha after claiming gold in the men’s Javelin on Sunday.Peters joined 400m specialist Kirani James in the country’s history books after throwing the implement 86.89, in the end finishing comfortably in the top spot. Magnus Kirt of Estonia, who get injured while competing, did enough to finish second with the mark of 86.21. Germany’s Johannes Vetter, one of the favourites heading into the event, never seemed to find his best form and in the end settled for silver in 85.37.Peters set the stage with a big 86.69 to open the competition, a mark which proved to be the second-best of the competition. The winning throw from the Grenadian was recorded with his fourth attempt.The gold medal was the second gold medal for the country and third World Championship medal overall. James, who was responsible for winning the country’s first gold medal in the men’s 400m metres at the 2011 Daegu World Championships, was also responsible for winning bronze in the same event at the Beijing World Championships.“This is a great moment for me,” Peters said. “Now I am looking forward to Tokyo 2020.” Trinidadian Keshorn Walcott, the other Caribbean athlete in the event, finished 11th with a best of 77.47.
Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Daniel Murphy, the Mets’ leadoff hitter in the fourth inning, took a 2-0 offering from Kershaw deep over the right field wall to put New York up 1-0. According to the MLB’s statcast, the home run traveled a projected 415 feet.With Kershaw behind on the count, having missed on a slider and a 4-seam fastball, he served up a fastball right over that plate that had little to no movement on it. It looked like trouble as soon as Murphy made contact.TBS play-by-play announcer Ernie Johnson knew it too, saying, “that ball is well hit to right, I mean really well hit to right,” he emphasized, “and the Mets are up 1-0.” Clayton Kershaw was dealing when he took the mound for the fourth inning.Through three innings in game 1 of the NLDS series, the Dodgers ace had struck out six Mets batters— two in each inning. It looked like Dodgers fans would be getting the regular season Kershaw, and not the postseason one who is 1-5 lifetime in the playoffs.But, of course, that wasn’t the case.One moment, one mistake changed that.
“Barca are a huge club, we were very happy over there,” Neymar Sr told TF1 on Sunday. “It’s impossible to leave a player like him out of these (transfer market) rumours. But it’s a lie, there hasn’t been a call with Barca.”“There are two people who speak for Neymar: himself and me. Neither of us has spoken about this intention to return to Barcelona,” he added.“These rumours amuse us a lot. These journalists are funny. The future is in Paris, the present is in Paris.”Neymar Sr took to social media last month to brand a report in Spain which claimed he had begged Barca to re-sign his son from PSG as “fake news”.The Brazilian forward is currently on the sidelines after he was ruled out for 10 weeks with a metatarsal injury suffered in a French Cup win over Strasbourg on January 23.PSG hope the 27-year-old, who suffered a fracture to the same right foot at the end of February last year, will be back in time for a potential Champions League quarter-final.The French club hold a 2-0 lead over Manchester United ahead of the return leg at the Parc des Princes in their last-16 tie.Neymar Sr also called on referees in France to offer his son more protection.“It’s not the French league that is the problem, it’s the referees who must protect the players,” he said.“If fouls aren’t whistled, if unsporting behaviour goes unpunished… that’s the problem.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Neymar will be sidelined until early April with a metatarsal injury © AFP/File / FRANCK FIFEPARIS, France, Feb 17 – Neymar’s father reiterated on Sunday that there has been no attempt to contact Barcelona over a possible return to Spain for the world’s most expensive player.Neymar joined Paris Saint-Germain for a world record fee of 222 million euros in August 2017 but has repeatedly been linked with a move back to Barcelona.
