Guyanese shooters within striking distance

first_img… Allicock gets disappointing decisionGUYANESE shooters, Ransford Goodluck and Lennox Braithwaite are well within striking distance of a medal finish in the Queen’s Prize Pairs, ahead of today’s final showdown of the event at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia.The pair ended the first day with a score of 293-29v and to sit in the 11th position behind Guernsey (294-30v), Canada (295-33v), New Zealand (296-34v), Jersey (297-23v), Wales (297-34v), Northern Ireland (298-30v), Scotland (298-31v), Australia (299-35v), South Africa (299-37v) and 2014 gold medallist England.According to reports from Australia, the Guyanese shooters are optimistic of their chances to land on the podium, bettering their 2014 showing at the Commonwealth Games, when Mahendra Persaud and Lennox Braithwaite shot Guyana to a sixth-place finish with a total of 585-47v.BOXINGKeevin Allicock, the 2017 Junior Commonwealth Games silver medallist, suffered a heart-breaking controversial defeat to 2014 Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Reece McFadden.Much was expected of Allicock ahead of the games, and the 18-year-old from Albouystown lived up to those expectations, only to have his hopes of reaching the quarter-final of the 52kg class snatched by some obvious dubious judging.Fijian Judge Seru Whippy scored the fight 29-28 for Allicock, giving the Guyanese fighter two of the three rounds, but the other four judges scoring in similar fashion for the Scottish boxer, though he was outpunched.Allicock’s defeat ended Guyana’s campaign in the ring since the other fighter, Colin Lewis (light welterweight) was knocked out of the competition after winning his opening fight.ATHLETICSMeanwhile, over on the track, Winston George ram 47.25 secs in his 400 metres semi-final, but his time was not good enough to see him through to the final. George will now shift his attention to the 200 metres today.Also today, the Hooper sisters, Natrena and Natricia, will go head-to-head when they meet in the women’s triple jump.Troy Doris will have his first taste of the Commonwealth Games in the men’s triple jump and Emanuel Archibald is aiming to rebound from his unsatisfactory performance in the 100 metres event, where he crashed out at the semi-finals.Since Wesley Christmas’ bronze medal in boxing at the 1990 Games in Auckland, New Zealand, Guyana’s only medals came from track and field, compliments of Aliann Pompey.Pompey struck gold in the 400 metres at the 2002 Games in Manchester, England and picked up a silver medal at the 2010 Games in India.Guyana, so far, has a total of 15 medals at the Commonwealth Games, with boxing and track and field sharing the spoils.last_img read more

Nigeria gold-medal winner tests positive

first_imgCommonwealth Games women’s 100m gold medal winner Osayemi Oludamola has failed a drugs test.Commonwealth Games Federation president Mike Fennell said Oludamola had asked for her B sample to be tested and a hearing would be held later on Monday.The Nigerian, 24, was named champion on Thursday after Australia’s Sally Pearson was controversially disqualified for a false start.It is the first negative test of the Games in Delhi.The sprinter showed traces of a banned substance called methylhexaneamine, which has only recently been added to the World Anti-Doping Agency’s prohibited list.If the test is confirmed, England’s Katherine Endacott, who finished fourth in the race behind Pearson and the Nigerian but was later awarded the bronze medal, would be elevated to a silver. At the moment no decision has been made on the medals, pending the hearing.The current silver medallist is Natasha Mayers of St Vincent and the Grenadines. If she were promoted that would be the country’s second ever Commonwealth gold medal.Punishment can range from a warning to a two-year ban, although the medal would be forfeited if the B sample proves positive.At his daily news conference, Fennell said: “Any positive test – whether in a high-profile event or not – is something that is very much regretted because we all strive for a clean Games, clean sport and clean competition.“One doesn’t know what sort of damage will accrue but we want to let everyone know we are very vigilant and the testing is of the highest standard.” Explaining why the news had been confirmed now, rather than waiting for the B sample, Fennell added: “We recognise there is difficulty in maintaining complete secrecy during the process.”Lalit Bhanot, the organising committee’s general secretary, said: “We want a dope-free Games. If somebody is caught, action will be taken. At the same time it is a message that no-one can escape.”Methylhexaneamine is the same drug the Indian weightlifter Sanamacha Chanu and swimmers Richa Mishra and Jyotsana Pansare were found to have used in September.Wada subsequently moved it to the non-specified list, meaning it can be used with a therapeutic use exception certificate.The Indians subsequently appealed against their bans but there has been no verdict yet.
