Ten Years After, Gatlin Fast Again

first_imgBRUSSELS — Ten years later, Justin Gatlin is dominating his sport once more.Granted, it’s happening at a time when Usain Bolt is taking a break from the track — but given the way Gatlin is running, perhaps even the seemingly unbeatable Jamaican will have to watch out next year.The American sprinter ran the fastest 100 meters of the year Sept. 5, and set a personal best at 32, before also winning the 200 only an hour later at the Van Damme Memorial, the last major event of the season.It extended his unbeaten streak to 18 races so far, with one minor race in Rieti, Italy, to come on Sept. 7.A full decade after he became Olympic 100 champion in Athens and four years after returning from a long doping ban, Gatlin set a time of 9.77 seconds. That matches the time he was stripped of in 2006 when he was slapped with a four-year ban, which at the time gave him a share of the world record.Now, humbled by hindsight, it gives him hope that the best might be yet to come. “It is coming back full circle, right,” Gatlin said. “So, hmmm, a little bit of bittersweet, but I am happy.”The only athlete coming close to stealing Gatlin’s spotlight in Brussels high jumper Mutaz Essa Barshim of Qatar, who came preciously close to setting a world record of 2.46 meters but had to settle for an Asian record of 2.43.At 23, Barshim still has much his career ahead of him. For Gatlin, it already is an achievement to have come back from the doping ban.Even in his 30s, Gatlin still has the quick start, the vigor of acceleration and the sustained strength right through to the finish to make many younger men jealous.Doing it in two races on one night was just another way to prove a point. “I wanted to test my toughness,” he said.He will need it next year, because Bolt will be back and bent on winning another world championship triple in Beijing as a stepping stone toward the 2016 Olympics Rio.Bolt’s season was limited to just a few minor events this year because of injuries, but Gatlin is looking forward to meeting him head head-on and turning a one-man show into a duel.“It is not just one lane on the track,” said Gatlin of Bolt’s dominance. “I don’t want to go out there and lay down when Usain Bolt takes the stage. I will go out there and push him. … The world wants to see a good rivalry.”Another American excelled in the women’s 200, with Allyson Felix clocking a world-leading 22.02 seconds to beat Frenchwoman Myriam Soumare and European champion Dafne Schippers of the Netherlands.In the shot put, New Zealand’s Valerie Adams won her 56th straight competition, beating the 27-year-old stadium record with a throw of 20.59 meters, which also was the best performance of the year.Barbora Spotakova of the Czech Republic also set a leading mark for the season and a King Baudouin stadium record, winning the javelin with 69.99.(RAF CASERT, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

5 days agoChelsea matchwinner Marcos Alonso: Our intensity earned Newcastle victory

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Chelsea matchwinner Marcos Alonso: Our intensity earned Newcastle victoryby Paul Vegas5 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea fullback Marcos Alonso was delighted to prove the matchwinner in victory over Newcastle United.The Spaniard struck in the 73rd minute to secure a fifth consecutive win for Frank Lampard’s Blues, although the victory owed much to persistence and patience from those within the ranks. “Newcastle played very compact and it’s not easy to find spaces to attack or create chances but I think we played well in the second half. We were so intense and finally got the goal and the three points,” said the defender.”We believed because we knew the game would be like this – we were prepared for this and in the first half maybe we were lacking a bit of patience in the final third but in the end we were happy with the three points and the goals. It was a massive win after the international break.”He also told the club’s website: “We have many options in the team and this is good. The team is getting better, we are improving game by game and we need to continue in this way. We are moving the ball quickly, our press is good and we are doing a good job as a team. We have clear ideas and we have to continue in this way.” last_img read more

No one is happy with Modi government Priyanka

first_imgBhadohi (Uttar Pradesh): Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi on Tuesday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying no one was happy with his government. Demanding to know what Modi had done in the last five years, Gandhi told the media here: “Be it farmers, youth or anybody, no one is satisfied with the government. Together they will change the government this year.” Gandhi, 47, is on a three-day boat ride on the Ganga as part of the Lok Sabha election campaign that will end on Wednesday in Varanasi, Modi’s parliamentary constituency. Gandhi began the day after offering prayers at the Sita Samahit Sthal temple in Sitamarhi. She was asked to comment on Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s claim that the Congress had ruled Uttar Pradesh for most years since the country’s independence and so it was to blame for keeping the sprawling state economically backward. “This ‘what they did in last 70 years’ has an expiry date. Now the BJP should tell the people what it did in the last five years (after Modi took office). “Shiksha mitras and anganvadi workers did not get anything. The BJP had announced Rs 17,000 per month for them,” she said. “It is good to produce report cards but what has actually happened? There is nothing on the ground. I am meeting people daily, they are distressed,” Gandhi said. Gandhi, who set out from Prayagraj on Monday in a specially-built vessel with supporters, earlier met Congress leaders here and exhorted them to work hard during the elections. She spent Tuesday night at a guest house in Bhadohi. Before resuming her journey on the Ganga, Gandhi met Congress leaders in the area. Shivam Dubey, a party leader who attended the meeting, told IANS: “We will work hard to ensure that the Congress is strengthened and wins with a huge majority.” Gandhi is expected to reach Chunar in Mirzapur on Tuesday evening.last_img read more
