Doris lands historic gold medal at Commonwealth Games

first_img– Red-carpet welcome to be extended by the National Sports Commission The ‘Golden’ Leap! Troy Doris during his historic gold-medal jump at the Commonwealth Games.LEADING up to the Olympic Games in Brazil in 2016, Troy Doris was considered by pundits around the world the one to challenge USA’s Christian Taylor for the gold, especially after resetting the country’s national record in the triple jump (17.18 metres). But the Guyanese, competing at the games for the first time, finished a commendable seventh-place (16.90 metres). Fast-forward to 2018, Doris, 29, now stands atop of the Commonwealth as champion, becoming only the fourth Guyanese to win a gold medal at the prestigious games, hosted at Gold Coast, Australia. Doris had just three of six legal jumps, the first, 16.67 metres, which would not have given him a medal, before a leap of 16.88 brought the ultimate hardware.His third jump of 16.26 was inconsequential, as Dominica’s Yordanys Duranona Garcia’s first jump of 16.86, was to be the farthest he extended in the pit to claim a silver medal. Cameroon’s Marcel Mayack II earned the bronze medal with his personal best leap of 16.46 metres.The Chicago native and former standout at the University of Iowa only started to represent Guyana in 2015 and since then, has left an imprint on track and field, carrying the Golden Arrowhead around the world, from the IAAF Diamond League to now, the Commonwealth Games.Doris now joins Aliann Pompey (400m, 2002), Winfield Braithwaite (Boxing, 1978) and Philip Aaron Edwards (Athletics, 1930) as the athletes to win gold for Guyana at the Commonwealth Games.Meanwhile, Director of Sport Christopher Jones, in congratulating Doris on his achievement, said, “His medal was expected. I’ve been following him closely, and for the last eight months, you can see his rigorous training regime in preparation for the Commonwealth Games. So this is the manifestation of hard work, discipline and dedication.”Jones further added that “it speaks to what could be achieved if long-term athlete development and support is there and the NSC stands ready and willing to do what we could to ensure many more Troy Doris could be seen on the world stage. The necessary support is most important and critical and I hope that his medal will be a stimulus for younger athletes in Guyana.”Meanwhile, with the National Sports Awards set for May 23, Jones told Chronicle Sport that the National Sports Commission (NSC) will be celebrating Doris, noting, “I will communicate with him and ensure that he’s here for the Sports Awards and will offer all travel and accommodation to allow him to be properly honoured, meet with the press and other local officials.”In a report on the popular online news outlet, Demerara Waves, Minister of Social Cohesion Dr George Norton, who also holds the responsibility for Sport, was quoted as stating that he’s “delighted because I think that while our neighbouring Caribbean countries are doing well, it was time for us to strike gold”.last_img read more

Gattuso Announces Milan Exit

first_imgGennaro Gattuso has announced that he is leaving his position as AC Milan head coach.The 41-year-old is to leave his position at San Siro after Milan narrowly missed out on Champions League qualification this season.Despite beating SPAL 3-2 on the final day of the season, Milan fell just a point short of a top-four spot.Gattuso confirmed he is departing on good terms with Milan, despite the disappointing end to their season.“My decision to leave AC Milan’s bench has not been easy, but I had to make it,” Gattuso told LA Repubblica.“It’s been a hard choice but one I put thought into. I have given up two years left on my contract because my history with this club will never be about money.”A two-time Serie A and Champions League winner with Milan as a player, Gattuso replaced Vincenzo Montella as coach in November 2017.Gattuso oversaw a 10-match unbeaten streak in Serie A this season as Milan threatened to leapfrog rivals Inter into third position.However, a derby defeat in March derailed Milan – who won just five of their remaining 11 games to finish fifth behind Inter and third-place Atalanta.RelatedSamuele PerisanJune 30, 2017Similar post”Scared” Gattuso On The Brink After Napoli Lose 3rd Straight GameJanuary 19, 2020In “Italy”AC Milan Want Fabregas In JanuaryNovember 19, 2018In “Europe”last_img read more

(AP Photo/David Zalubowski) DENVER |  A new Colorado law allowing medical marijuana use at public schools is getting a second look Monday in a House committee.The current law allows students who need medical marijuana to use edible pot at public schools — as long as the school districts agree. No school districts currently does, so patient advocates are pushing the bill to make Colorado the second state to require schools to allow nurses or parents to administer medical pot. New Jersey made the change last year.“They need to make reasonable accommodations so that children who need medical marijuana can go to school,” said Stacey Linn, a Lakewood mother of a 15-year-old with cerebral palsy who is not allowed to wear a skin patch delivering a cannabis-derived treatment to school.Medical marijuana has been legal in some states for two decades. But school districts and lawmakers nationwide are only now starting to grapple with thorny issues about student use of a drug still illegal under federal law. Colorado is one of three states where medical marijuana is legal that has any rules for use in schools, according to the pro-legalization Marijuana Policy Project.The possibility of medical marijuana in schools raises a number of questions for school officials. The law currently says that the drug must be in non-smokeable form and is to be administered by a school nurse or a caregiver, likely a parent. But those school nurses are also required to report to authorities any child who is exposed to an illegal drug, including marijuana-derived treatments.That happened to the Wann family of Highlands Ranch, which got a call from Child Protective Services last year because their epileptic 8th grader uses a cannabis-derived treatment. Amber Wann said her son doesn’t take the oil at school, but the district reported the family as possible child abusers, despite last year’s law clarifying that schools may allow marijuana treatment.“They were more concerned about losing federal funds and law enforcement coming after their nurses than about the new law saying they can allow a hemp-derived medicine,” Wann said.School officials say they’re being unfairly asked to accommodate an activity that still runs afoul of federal law. This year’s update, for example, gives schools no guidance for the possibility of a student grabbing a cannabis treatment away from a parent and rightful patient on a school bus and taking it themselves.“School boards do not lack compassion for students that benefit from medical marijuana,” said Jane Urschel of the Colorado Association of School Boards, which opposes the marijuana requirement. “How do you begin to deal with those difficulties in different venues?”The parents counter that medical marijuana shouldn’t be treated any differently than Ritalin or other controlled substances that are routinely dispensed by school districts.Supporters also say that schools are being too conservative about the prospect of endangering federal funding. New Jersey last year required schools to accommodate student medical marijuana use, with no repercussions from federal authorities.The law’s backers say they’re not sure whether the school pot requirement will pass. The state Department of Education is neutral on the measure. Colorado has about 350 kids under 18 on the medical marijuana registry, according to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.Sponsors say they hope that growing acceptance of marijuana to treat childhood illnesses gives the school pot requirement a boost.“Kids shouldn’t have to choose between their medicine and going to school,” said Rep. Jonathan Singer, D-Longmont and sponsor of the bill.___Kristen Wyatt can be reach at https://www.twitter.com/APkristenwyatt___Online:House Bill 1373: https://bit.ly/23iosjalast_img read more
