Mayhew gets heroes’ welcome at Charlemont High

first_imgCharlemont High School gave Daniel Mayhew a hero’s welcome for his performance at the Winter Youth Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway recently, with an open march celebration at the Linstead-based institution on Monday. The march started almost on the highway and the students travelled for little over a mile en route to the school, where the 17-year-old got an even greater reception from the waiting school populace, with banners and pictures of his achievement decorating the school. Mayhew became Jamaica’s first Junior Winter Olympics representative, finishing a creditable 13th in the monobob competition at the Games. “I thank Charlemont High School for putting it (celebration) on. The feeling I got was extraordinary, I felt so happy knowing I wasn’t a winner on the podium and I come home a winner because of the support everyone has shown me,” said Mayhew. “I didn’t think it (participation) would have led to this and all what took place, so everything has been unexpected. I am really surprised, I didn’t know that anything like this was going to happen,” he exclaimed. “From the moment I came through the airport, my family and school was there cheering me on, and it was just a feeling of excitement and feeling good to know my school can support me like this; whatever happened, they still have me as a winner, and I feel good to know I can make my country proud and my family and school happy,” he told The Gleaner. Mayhew, who has only been in the sport for over a year now, revealed that the track was not the best. “The environment at the track wasn’t perfect to get the best times. All the competitors’ times were slower than their best in training, so that really affected everyone. But I tried my best although the track wasn’t the best, but it wasn’t enough to win the race. “But I am 13th in the world, and that is awesome,” he beamed. “A lot of support was there. There were few Jamaicans, but everyone supported me because they love Jamaicans, and that was one of the factors that caused me to get my best time, and I really feel good and hope for the best in the future,” he continued. “My motivation is to make everyone proud and put my best in everything I do. I feel I can make it. I know I have the potential as I am doing the sport for 12 months and qualified for the Youth Olympics with lack of training and factors needed to perfect the sport. “But I am going somewhere in life, and that’s a challenge. I will keep on doing what I am doing to make everyone proud,” he said. SURPRISEDlast_img read more

Atalanta moving up

first_imgNAPLES, Italy (AP):The bar has been raised at Atalanta.Not only is the provincial squad dreaming of a place in Europe, but it has the Champions League within its sights after winning at Napoli 2-0 yesterday to move to within three points of the third-placed side in Serie A.Defender Mattia Caldara again stole the show with a goal in each half. Atalanta midfielder Franck Kessie was sent off moments before Caldara’s second, following two bookings in quick succession.It ended Napoli’s run of 14 league matches without defeat.Inter Milan can move back level with Atalanta with a win over second-place Roma today. Victory would make the race for a place in Europe’s elite club competition wide open.Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini admitted last week that a win against Napoli would change his side’s objectives, and that new aim will be tested in its next two matches against Fiorentina and Inter.Atalanta’s achievement is even more impressive given that they rely mainly on young, homegrown talent.Caldara, who was signed by Juventus last month but loaned back to Atalanta until 2018, is only 22, while Andrea Petagna, Andrea Conti, and Alberto Grassi are the same age or younger. They all came through the youth ranks together at the Bergamo-based club.last_img read more

U-17s look to Panama – Coach Edwards wanted more warm-up matches

first_imgNational Under-17 coach Andrew Edwards is bemoaning the fact that his players have been unable to measure their recent progress against international opposition before the team departs for the CONCACAF final round in Panama on Friday. Since securing their place in the confederation championship, the young Reggae Boyz have faced the United States, Canada and Cuba friendlies earlier this year. With no international warm-up games on the cards going into the tournament, Edward turned to the nation’s top-flight teams in order to play high-quality opposition. “Right now, things are about 85-90 per cent. We are sharper. Physically, we are in a better place. Technically, we have improved, and tactically, we have improved a lot, but we need consistency on the tactical side,” he told The Gleaner. “But we would have really loved an opportunity to test all that against international opposition,” Edwards added. He said the boys have responded well in the local matches they have played. In matches against Premier League teams, they drew 2-2 with Harbour View, beat Boys’ Town 2-1, and UWI 2-0, but went down 2-1 to Waterhouse. “Against senior opposition, we were competitive and got positive results in all the games bar one. The games also told us how they have matured, so despite the fact that we would rather have played against better organised teams or international games against our peers, the opportunity to play is always good, and we have benefited in no small measure. “They competed strongly and our tactics surprised Boys’ Town, Harbour View and UWI. Those games, we played well. The Waterhouse game was a poor game by our expectations and standard.” he stated. Meanwhile, for the period leading up to the championship Edwards said they hope to keep all the players fit and healthy. “We have to manage our injuries, make sure we get to Panama with 20 healthy bodies and healthy minds,” he said.
