An internal report by Barça advises against playing every 72 hours

The report also highlights that when the competition starts, only maintenance training sessions can be carried out, since they only have 72 hours between games, so they recommend a minimum time of “50% of the time that the confinement lasts” to recondition the footballer upon return from competition. This means that if the Alarm State is extended to the two months foreseen -until May 10-, it will take a minimum of one month of training to restart the activity, especially considering that the return will be made, according to the report itself, “in three phases: first it will be individual, then with small groups and finally with the entire team.” Within the report it is emphasized that “the health of the players comes first”, which explains why they will be subjected to “aer and ana metabolism controls” (coronavirus test) on a regular basis during the time that the readaptation to competition, in addition to a “correct reintroduction of specific and competitive work on the field to avoid injury”.last_img read more

College system making Jamaica stronger- Davis says rise on international stage coincides with athletes developing at home

first_imgWESTERN BUREAU: Director of Sports at the University of Technology (UTech), Anthony Davis, says Jamaica’s long-term success in track and field and that of the wider sporting disciplines at the international level depends heavily on the development of a good collegiate system. Davis, who heads one of Jamaica’s most prestigious college sports programmes at UTech, was the keynote speaker at yesterday’s launch of the third staging of the Montego Bay City Run, at the Holiday Inn Resort. “Once upon a time we never had a vibrant collegiate system, but now it’s been growing exponentially and because of the direct link we now have genuine track and field stars on the rise in our universities and colleges,” Davis said. “This can only mean a sustained presence of high quality athletes at the national and international levels for Jamaica,” he noted. Davis has witnessed the rise of many local track and field stars to have benefited from attending US colleges and universities through various scholarships. He believes the system has improved for young stars to be schooled and trained locally. “I have nothing against a student wishing to access higher education and training elsewhere, but we have seen a dramatic drop in the numbers opting to do so. Instead, we see them getting into local universities and colleges, train locally and are now at the top of the world in respective events,” Davis said. “It shows we are on the right path and are doing the right things to educate and elevate our student athletes,” cited Davis. According to Davis, the approximately 21 universities and colleges across Jamaica have been making great investments to upgrade coaches and facilities to meet the growing local demand. “Before this we depended on our talents being developed overseas, primarily in US colleges and while that served its purpose and still does, I am of the view that we have been more than holding our own with the rise, development and upkeep of our own stars. And that is always good for Jamaica,” he stated. Davis is also a committee member of the International University Sports Federation (FISU). The MoBay City Run is set for May 1, 2016 and projected to attract more than 2,000 local and international marathon runners. It seeks to raise $5 million for tertiary level students in western Jamaica.last_img read more

Taranis ready to deliver

first_img FIRST SUPER-6 FANCIES A notable upset by OFFICIAL REPORT at 13-1 in the eventful seventh race at Caymanas Park last Saturday ensured a Pick-9 carrryover to tomorrow’s meet. OFFICIAL REPORT actually passed the post second, but was awarded first place on the disqualification of 4-1 chance WOMAN IS BOSS with embattled jockey Aaron Chatrie aboard. Both Super-6s start anew with guaranteed minimums of $750,000. The Wayne DaCosta-trained FUTURE KING, who chased home stable companion DREAMLINER at a respectable distance on his August 1 debut over the round five course, should go one better in the opening maiden two-year-old race over 1100 metres. Highly fancied when apprentice-ridden on his debut, FUTURE KING proved no match for his more fancied stable-companion DREAMLINER, who won again over 1100 metres last Saturday. Having trained well and fully focused (figure eight on) for this race with stable jockey Robert Halledeen now slated, FUTURE KING should have the measure of the well-advanced first time runner SORRENTINO’S STAR (working fairly well) under Paul Francis and STUNNER (Wesley Henry up), who showed promise on her debut in June. TARANIS, who is proving somewhat expensive to follow, gets a glorious opportunity to deliver the goods in the second race for three-year-olds (non winners of two) over 1820 metres. Trained by Richard Azan, TARANIS was installed a 4-5 favourite to win over a mile on August 22, only to be beaten in a driving finish by the front running WAHEED NAJMAH in the fairly good time of 1:40.4. Working well and with leading jockey Shane Ellis retaining the ride in an eight-horse field, TARANIS is a firm fancy. FORCE DE JOUR, an American-bred 4-y-o colt who scored decisively over 1100 metres as the 1-5 favourite on a $450,000 claiming tag last Saturday, should bring fitness into play and repeat over the straight in the third race to be contested by seven high claiming horses. Claimed from trainer Anthony ‘Baba’ Nunes by Winston Morris out of Saturday’s race, FORCE DE JOUR is on top of his game and despite the presence of proven campaigner SUNLIGHT EXPRESS (Halledeen up), who has good speed and enjoys the straight, FORCE DE JOUR ought to be followed with four-time champion Omar Walker taking over the reins from Shane Ellis. The sparingly raced 4-y-o colt STAN BOY, who returns from a lengthy layoff (18 months) with Shamaree Muir riding for trainer Spencer Chung, has kept better company in his short career and on the move at exercise in preparation for the fourth race over the straight, his class could make the difference. BATTLE SONG, MAGIC CITY and COURT CALL, all fit horses, should ensure that STAN BOY is extended in the last furlong. The last two races in the first Super-6 should be won by consistent ROYAL VIBES (Halledeen up), one of seven starters declared for the Kenneth Mattis O.D. Memorial Cup (overnight allowance) over 2000 metres, and down in class INFANTRY OFFICER in the sixth for $180,000 claimers over the straight. Their respective dangers are BOLD AVIATOR and WINESHA.

STETHS clip Munro in ‘St Bess’ derby in ISSA/FLOW DaCosta Cup

first_img first goal of the season WESTERN BUREAU: St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) missed one penalty, but made amends by scoring another to edge Group E rivals Munro College 1-0 in their ‘St Bess’ derby at Alpart Sports Club yesterday in the ISSA/FLOW daCosta Cup football competition. The win took them second behind Lacovia High (seven points), who were also in the winner’s circle following another good outing to defeat BB Coke High 2-0. Surprise team Maggotty High kept their positive season going, although playing to a nil-all scoreline with BB Coke and kept alive hopes of advancing beyond the first round for the first time in the school’s history. STETHS secured victory when second-half substitute Travar McCulloch stepped up to score from the penalty spot in the 72nd minute, this after a moment of madness from Munro’s Nicholas Collins, who dived goalkeeper-style to save a certain goal with his hands. Collins was issued a straight red card for his action and left his team a mountain to climb, with STETHS looking ominous with each attack. McCulloch said the win meant that they will be able to play with more freedom and that it brings confidence to the team moving forward. “It’s my first goal of the season, but more important, we got the win,” McCulloch stated. “We expected a very hard game from Munro. The win gives us more confidence because we weren’t winning as we should,” said the STETHS central midfielder. STETHS, who lost in the final last year, were quick out of the blocks and should have taken the lead from the sixth minute when forward Michael Kerr failed to hit the target, after getting the better of Munro goalkeeper Onandi McKenzie. Munro gradually settled and also provided some dangerous moments for STETHS, but lacked the cutting edge on the final play to dent their opponents. At Jarrett Park, the game between St James High and Group A leaders Cornwall College ended in a 1-1 draw. Defending champions Clarendon College were held to a 1-1 draw by Lennon in Group H to still lead on seven points. Lennon and Thompson Town are next, with Kellits at the foot of the standings. Elsewhere, there were wins for Denbigh High over Porus 1-0, Central High and Foga Road High ended 0-0. Manchester High moved further away from the field with a 4-0 whipping of Mile Gully in Group F, while Dinthill Technical and Bog Walk drew 1-1. Former winners Rusea’s High made it two wins in two starts with a battling 1-0 victory over Group B rivals Frome Technical, while 2005 champions Godfrey Stewart High thumped Little London 3-0 in Group D.last_img read more
