Bernard Lagat of Kenya set a new American record in the mile to highlight the Golden Spikes track meet Saturday at the new Randal Tyson Track Center.

A crowd of more than 4,000 and an ESPN audience watched the meet that featured professional athletes and collegiate competitors.

But Olympic hopefuls like Lagat, who turned in a very fast 3:56.48 in the men’s mile, dominated the meet.

“I did not know it was going to be that fast,” said Lagat of his record pace. “I run bad when the pace is slow and end up losing. I came here knowing I was going to take it. I was glad there was someone that would pace it fast.”

Once Lagat ran out front, he seemed to get faster.

“It was like 1:59 for the first 800 and I expected it to be 1:56,” said Lagat, who failed to beat his best time of 1:55. “It was three seconds slower, but it was good I got out. I felt good and felt like I was still going.”

The only problem Lagat had was tight muscles.

“I had more than a 12 hour flight and my muscles felt so tight,” Lagat said. “I arrived at 9 o’clock. I warmed up for an hour and that helped me a lot.”

Jeff Hartwig, a resident of Jonesboro, Ark., equaled his world record of 19 2 1/4 in the pole vault. He raised the bar one quarter inch in an attempt to set a new mark, but failed to clear it in three tries.

Jon Drummond of Los Angeles turned on the steam to post a win over Tim Harden in the 60 meter dash. Drummond finished in 6.53 seconds.

“We had a great field and Tim Harden is always great competition, and Mike Harsh (3rd place) is always going to surprise you,” said Drummond, who missed the world and American record by eight hundredths of a second (6.45). “So I focused a little bit more on myself and what I needed to execute.

“I did not have the great or fast race that I anticipated. However, I am injury free and live to race another day.

“If I am not winning races, I am not happy. I think the more I start winning, the happier I will be.”

Drummond, like many of the competitors, was impressed with the Randal Tyson facility.

“I think this is an awesome track,” he said. “I hope this will excite more track fans to come out. Coming here was a great thing for us.”

Three time 1998 NCAA Indoor champion Hazel Clark won in her first attempt at the mile with a time of 4:40.92.

“I felt really good,
adidas trainers Legat shatters U
” said Clark, who burst out front and pulled away on the final lap. “I just slowed the pace down. At the 800 mark, I knew I was fast. I just stayed back, then I took off. I ran 4:40 and that is what I expected to run.”

“This is my first mile and I think it went well,” Clark later added. “I am a good 800 meter runner and it is just about the same. A lot of people tell me I should be a miler and maybe they are right.”

Larissa Kleinmann of Arkansas came close to posting a win in the women’s 3,000 meters, but Courtney Babcock of Mountain West sprinted around on the final lap to beat Kleinmann at 9:08.05. It was her fourth straight win in the event.

“I’ve been running 7.93, 7.94, but I’ve been trying real hard to get it under 7.9,” said Morrison. “I didn’t do it today, but I still have two weeks to train. If I go hard, I think I can break 7.9.”

In the men’s 3,000 meter run, Clyde Colenso of South Africa turned in a time of 7:56.25, just short of the American record of 7:55.19.60 meters 1, Jon Drummond (Nike) 6:53. 2, Tim Harden (Nike) 6:59. 3, Mike Marsh (SMTC) 6.66. 4, Kim Collins (TCU) 6.67. 5, Garfield Ellenwood (TCU) 6.69.

200 meters 1, Milton Mallard (Asics) 21.10. 2, Andre Morris (Fila) 21.10. 3, Curtis Perry (Nike) 21.42.

grey adidas superstar Festival of New Dance concludes run of solid performances

adidas original t shirt Festival of New Dance concludes run of solid performances

This was a rock and roll drenched quartet of muscular questing in search of, not just modern masculinity, but the aggressive, electric, and confusing persona of the contemporary man.

Inventively staged, marvelously scored, with a choreography of gravity defying flex and feline control, it was a witty, moving, and exhilarating finish to the week.

Gravel (also a lighting designer, not co incidentally), is based in Montreal, where he was born, although his childhood was spent in northern Canada. Like Justine Chambers with her “Family Dinner,” Gravel believes the audience is part of the work.

“They make it more tangible for us, so we end up understanding what we are doing,” he told LondonDance in 2013. Performers and audience are also partners in pursuit of beauty, another philosophical concern of his, their interaction building, becoming, something belonging to that elusive category.

The audience is invited into the piece from the first.

“All Hell” opens with the performers on stage, arranging their first props, including a microphone, guitar, turntable, and parallel lines of beer bottles. It unfolds in a series of ensemble, duet, and solo turns, seemingly as casual as the initial T shirt and Adidas track pants costumes, but quickly emerging as work that is tightly and mesmerizingly put together.

The performers are, before our eyes, chameleons. They are aviator sunglass bedecked good old boys, they are a pack of animals, they are men in suits; they are strong, they are turning on each other, they are lost. Moving in and out of configuration, they change costume or take a drink of water at the side of the stage. The music, too, is almost entirely generated by them, another look behind the scenes that only enhances what’s happening on the stage.

Gravel is considered part of the new wave of choreographers coming out of Montreal, from a background steeped in the arts; his mother taught dance and his grandfather was a folk musician. His father was the odd person out but “didn’t complain,” he said in the LondonDance interview, though he did encourage Gravel to play hockey.

Perhaps due to this creatively broad background, Gravel’s dance works don’t just have dance in them. In his pieces he might sing, play guitar, and deliver monologues directly to the audience all of which forms part of “All Hell.”

The Festival of New Dance has a solid record of inviting such tremendous performances here. In addition, outreach and education have always been an integral element of the festival. There are after show talkbacks and residencies and “First Looks,” a strong emphasis on sharing skills and showcasing talent in an inclusive, openhanded manner.

On the Festival’s opening night, Neighbourhood Dance Work’s Executive Director, Calla Lachance, spoke of how the company and, more broadly, contemporary dance was reaching an exciting equilibrium within the community. They “have a lot of feelers out,” coming soon to a stage or classroom or Water Street store window near you.

Joan Sullivan is editor of Newfoundland Quarterly magazine. She reviews both fiction and non fiction books for The Telegram and, from time to time, dance.

adidas original trainers finned Minnow in Your Local Creek May Be One

adidas backpack finned Minnow in Your Local Creek May Be One

Two examples of the Clinch Dace

Donald J. Orth, Thomas H. Jones Professor of the Department of Fish and Wildlife Conservation at Virginia Tech, would like to study that little fish in the creek in your backyard or on your farm.

Though it seems like an everyday kind of fish, that little yellow finned minnow in your creek is rare and even may be a one of a kind species. Orth and his students are searching for creeks in Virginia to research these minnows, and, if you do turn out to have a rare but unidentified species on your property, you may even get a hand in naming the fish.

“We are looking for people concerned about legacy and about learning themselves how to best take care of their creeks on their land to maintain good water and stream health. These minnows are very good indicators of how healthy the creek is. Besides being unique to your property, they also can help you take good care of your property,” comments Orth.

Orth and other scientists at Virginia Tech have been studying this undescribed species of minnow for over five years. Commonly referred to as the “Clinch Dace,” its closest relative is the Laurel Dace that occurs in only a few small tributaries on Walden Ridge in Bledsoe and Rhea Counties in eastern Tennessee.

The Clinch Dace was first collected in Mudlick Creek, Tazewell County, Virginia in 1999.

Surveys targeting Clinch Dace confirmed their distribution is limited to small headwater streams of the upper Clinch River basin in Tazewell and Russell Counties. Since its discovery, there have been at least 285 site surveys. All confirmed identifications come the portions of Russell and Tazewell counties that are in the bituminous coal field.

Despite 15 years of surveys, no work has begun regarding rehabilitation of any streams with Clinch Dace or Clinch Dace potential. Additionally, the abundance of Clinch Dace is low and populations of Clinch Dace occur in highly fragmented stream segments. This means you may find them along your property but your neighbors may not.

Potential threats to persistence of Clinch Dace include human wastes, non native fish, livestock and agriculture waste, mining, culverts and other barriers, and bait harvest.

There are opportunities for rehabilitation of many of the small streams so they may support populations of Clinch Dace in the future. Currently, Dr. Orth’s Clinch Dace study is being supported by a State Wildlife Grant from the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries and the Appalachian Research Initiative for Environmental Science, which works through an industrial affiliates’ model for pro active energy and environmental research in Appalachia.

adidas samba black FIFA Sponsors On Qatar

adidas infant shoes FIFA Sponsors On Qatar

government indicted top soccer officials on charges of racketeering, wire fraud, and money laundering, FIFA corporate sponsors expressed concern, saying they were monitoring the situation. They did their predictable finger waving.

sponsorship has always focused on supporting the teams, enabling a great fan experience, and inspiring communities to come together and celebrate the spirit of competition and personal achievement, Visa, one of FIFA parters, said in a statement. it is important that FIFA makes changes now, so that the focus remain on these going forward. Should FIFA fail to do so, we have informed them that we will reassess our sponsorship. But companies like Visa should have reassessed their FIFA sponsorship long before the arrests. Because while the scale of the alleged corruption over $150 million in bribes and kickbacks, according to the Justice Department is shocking, another scandal has been brewing for years now. And this one involves the loss of many lives.

In December 2010, FIFA awarded the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, a tiny, oil rich Gulf state with little existing World Cup infrastructure and a dangerously hot climate, for both players and the thousands of migrant workers that have been needed to built the World Cup edifices. As a result, a humanitarian crisis has unfolded. According to a March 2014 report from the International Trade Union Confederation, 1,200 World Cup workers from Nepal and India have died in Qatar since 2010. The ITCU estimates that 4,000 workers could die before the 2022 World Cup kicks off. The Washington Post, drawing on multiple sources, created a graphic comparing World Cup worker deaths in Qatar with fatalities associated with other major sporting events, like the 2012 London Olympics, the 2014 Sochi Olympics and the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The differences are stunning.

On top of that, the Nepalese labor minister recently told The Guardian that many World Cup migrants from Nepal have not been permitted to return home from Qatar to mourn family members killed in the April 25 earthquake, which claimed over 8,000 lives. indictments. (Yesterday, the Swiss government announced it has launched a criminal investigation into the bid process for both the 2018 World Cup in Russia and the 2022 Cup in Qatar). If anything, the publicity surrounding the arrests will shine further light into the Qatar crisis.

And what do Visa and other sponsors have to say about Qatar? Not a whole lot.

TIME reached out to six companies listed in FIFA sponsorship portfolio: FIFA partners Adidas, Coca Cola, Hyundai/Kia and Visa, and World Cup sponsors Anheuser Busch InBev and McDonald We did not seek comment from the seventh sponsor, Russian gas giant Gazprom, whose sponsorship is listed as only connected with the World Cup in Russia. We asked each of them: can your company support an organization that is staging an event in Qatar,
adidas samba black FIFA Sponsors On Qatar
a place where a humanitarian crisis has unfolded during World Cup preparations, a place where, according to one report, at least 1,200 people have died during World Cup preparations, a place where migrant workers were reportedly not allowed to go home to mourn earthquake victims in Nepal?

No company made any executive available to answer this question. TIME directly emailed the question to John Lewicki, head of global alliances for McDonald and Lucas Herscovici, vice president consumer connections (media, digital, sports entertainment) at Anheuser Busch InBev. Neither executive directly responded. We got a flurry of statements. A Visa rep directed TIME to the statement it posted Wednesday in response to the arrests. disappointment and concern with FIFA in light of today developments is profound, the statement said, in part. a sponsor, we expect FIFA to take swift and immediate steps to address these issues within its organization. This starts with rebuilding a culture with strong ethical practices in order to restore the reputation of the games for fans everywhere. When we pointed out that that statement was not specific to the loss of life in Qatar, the rep directed us to an earlier statement, released May 19. continue to be troubled by the reports coming out of Qatar related to the World Cup and migrant worker conditions.

An Adidas rep sent along a statement: adidas Group is fully committed to creating a culture that promotes the highest standards of ethics and compliance, and we expect the same from our partners. Following today news, we can therefore only encourage FIFA to continue to establish and follow transparent compliance standards in everything they do. adidas is the world leading football brand and we will continue to support football on all levels. This statement, too, is a response to the arrests, not our Qatar question. We pointed this out to Adidas. A spokesperson said this was the company standing response.

More than 20 hours after this story was published, Adidas sent another statement: adidas Group is committed to ensuring fair labour practices, fair wages and safe working conditions in factories throughout our global supply chain. These active efforts are guided by our core values as a company as well as by our Workplace Standards contractual obligations under the manufacturing agreements the adidas Group signs with its main business partners. The Workplace Standards are based on the International Labour Organization (ILO core labour rights conventions. There have been significant improvements and these efforts are ongoing; but everyone recognizes that more needs to be done in a collective effort with all stakeholders involved. A Hyundai representative also did not answer the question directly, saying through a statement, a company that place the highest priority on ethical standards and transparency, Hyundai Motor is extremely concerned about the legal proceedings being taken against certain FIFA executives and will continue to monitor the situation closely. A Kia official said in a statement: Motors takes seriously any reports concerning the poor treatment of migrant workers involved in the construction of venues for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Hyundai is the parent company of Kia.

The statement from McDonald is committed to doing business around the world in a manner that respects human rights. Coke: Coca Cola Company does not condone human rights abuses anywhere in the world. We expect FIFA to continue taking these matters seriously and to work toward further progress. We welcome constructive dialogue on human rights issues, and we will continue to work with many individuals, human rights organizations, sports groups, government officials and others to develop solutions and foster greater respect for human rights in sports and elsewhere.

Anheuser Busch InBev: expect all of our partners to maintain strong ethical standards and operate with transparency, and are committed to business practices that do not infringe on human rights. We continue to closely monitor the situation through our ongoing communications with FIFA, including developments in Qatar. very bad business right now to be associated with FIFA, says Ben Sturner, president and CEO of Leverage Agency, a sports marketing firm. Qatar situation is going to force more sponsors away. They have to go away. It the humane thing to do. Do iconic brands like McDonald Coke, and others really feel this way?

adidas running spikes Final push to state title begins for AISA programs

adidas football kits Final push to state title begins for AISA programs

Five teams from three area schools are on their way to potential history.

The AISA Class AAA Elite Eight State Basketball Tournament begins on Thursday in Montgomery at the Multiplex with Lee Scott and Glenwood both sending their boys and girls teams while Springwood is represented by its boys team.

While each team prepares for the final games of the season, Lee Scott’s boys team is aiming to live up to its No. 1 seeding after winning the Region 1 tournament on Saturday.

“We’re going to take it one game at a time,” Lee Scott boys head coach William Johnson said. “Try to win each quarter. We’ve got a pretty tough draw, even though we’re a No. 1 seed; we’ve got some really good teams in our bracket. We’re going to take it one game at a time, one possession at a time and try to come out with a win each game.”

The Warriors will aim to keep its season alive by relying on the strong play they’ve received from critical areas and players.

Part of the biggest part of the Warriors’ momentum has been thanks to the play of the entire team on the defensive end while senior Jacob Carson has helped to lead that effort. The Region 1 Tournament MVP for the boys, Carson initially helped the team qualify for state with 13 points against Bessemer for a 53 21 win in the first round.

“He’s played really well all year long. The few games that he was a little down on his numbers were games he got in foul trouble and his minutes were limited,” Johnson said of Carson. “One of the keys to him this past weekend was that he stayed out of foul trouble. He was on the court the most of the night, and when he’s on the court he scored and played defense like he’s been playing, that’s big for us. It opens up a lot of things.”

Through the tournament, the most the Warriors allowed was 44 points. While that same feat is not expected as the state’s best teams gather in Montgomery for the Elite Eight, it has been an encouraging sign for the team’s overall defense.

A major part of that effort has come from the starting five of Sam Aldridge, Reese George,
adidas running spikes Final push to state title begins for AISA programs
Haynes Waid, Buck Dean and Carson.

“It’s consistency. They’re a very fundamental group,” Johnson said of the starters. “When we’re shooting the ball, I like our confidence level. We have done a pretty good job of that down the stretch. That group plays hard and lays it on the line. The one thing I’ve been most impressed with over the last two weeks is that we are starting to take a lot of charges.”

The starting lineup managed to draw multiple charges through the region tournament with seven against Tuscaloosa Academy in the semifinal and a handful more against Springwood in the championship.

“I thought we played with a lot of confidence,” Johnson said. “That’s what you want to see from your guys this time of the year. The Warriors, however, are not worried about that as at least eight players managed to find their way to the rim for points during each game of the region tournament.

“We play about 10 kids. Our bench guys have been huge for us down the stretch,” Johnson said. “We’ll sub four guys in at the four minute mark in the first quarter and four guys in at the four minute mark in the second quarter. We’re not having to manage foul issues or anything.

“That’s able to rest some of our starters, and give them minutes and confidence. We’re not losing the lead and things like that. Our bench guys are solid, I can’t say enough great things about them and how they come into the game, play and knock down shots.”

“You’ve got to know that you’re going to get everyone’s best shot,” Johnson said. “At this time, there’s no tomorrow in the basketball world here. Win or go home.”

Brayer got off the cart and approached the Scion driver, Hoster said. The driver shot Brayer in the head before fleeing east on Stetson and south on 75th Street, hitting other cars, according to police.

Brayer was taken to a hospital, where he died, Hoster said.

‘An exceptional young man’The Tempe Fire Medical Rescue Department called Brayer’s death a “horrible tragedy” in a statement Sunday, saying he would “be missed by his family of colleagues in the fire department and by the wider community of first responders in the Valley.”

Among other accomplishments during his 10 years with the department, Brayer started Tempe’s Veterans Telemedicine Program in 2016. The program provides in home medical care to high risk veterans living in Tempe through a partnership with the Phoenix Veterans Administration hospital.

We are saddened to hear the news of Tempe Fire captain Kyle Brayer. “He was very caring and passionate about his work and the Tempe community.”

Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell also expressed his condolences to those who knew Brayer in a Facebook post.

“The City of Tempe lost one of our own today,” he wrote. Marine Corps in 2002, according to his Linkedin profile. In a 2011 article on Arizona State University’s website, he said he’d “wanted to be a Marine since I was 10 years old.”

During his time in the military, he helped provide humanitarian aid in the Philippines, the report said.

After his first deployment in 2004, Brayer opened a business called Epic Fitness in La Jolla, Calif., which grew from only two employees to 14 trainers, coaches, nutritionists and yoga instructors, according to the company’s website.

Brayer in 2006 moved the company to Tempe, where it provided on site personal training to Phoenix and East Valley residents, the website said. His Linkedin profile indicates he also taught a course at Mesa Community College on firefighter fitness and conditioning.

“He was the total package,” said Josh Reynolds, a friend of Brayer’s who played hockey with him in the 2011 World Police and Fire Games in New York. “He was successful at everything he did and will be missed by all.”

“Our brother Kyle Brayer was taken from us last night,” wrote Nick Ells, whose Facebook page identifies him as a Tempe captain and paramedic.

Ells described the described the shooting as “a senseless act of violence I will never understand” and requested prayers for Brayer’s family.

“My heart is heavy today for the Tempe Fire Medical Rescue Department today,” a woman named Heather Suess wrote on Facebook. “They lost another great one. And way,

Brayer’s death comes four months after the death of another Tempe fire captain. Frank Reed died in October in a swimming accident while vacationing in Portugal.

white superstar adidas FIFA struggling to find sponsors for Russia 2018

Teams from 32 countries learned Friday who they will play at the soccer showcase, but with just six months until kick off, FIFA is struggling to find companies that are willing to spend millions of dollars on ads and logo placement.

Brands have been scared off by the 2015 corruption scandal that ensnared top FIFA officials, including former general secretary Joseph “Sepp” Blatter, analysts say. presidential election, haven helped.

“The big deals are still there but it in decline,” said Patrick Nally, a sports marketing consultant who previously worked with FIFA. “The big corporate names are moving away and being replaced by political players.”

FIFA lumps its sponsors into three groups: “partners,” “World Cup sponsors” and “regional supporters.”

The group has filled seven of eight partnership slots the top tier ahead of Russia 2018. Some Western stalwarts with long standing FIFA relationships are still on board, including Coca Cola, Visa and Adidas.

Newcomers are limited to Qatar Airways, state carrier of the 2022 World Cup host, and Russian state controlled energy firm Gazprom. Chinese property firm Wanda Group is another new top sponsor.

The second sponsorship tier is only half full, with veterans McDonald and Budweiser being joined by two Chinese companies: smartphone maker Vivo and electronics manufacturer Hisense.

Gone are Western brands Continental, Castrol and Johnson Johnson, which all chose not to renew their contracts in 2015.

FIFA biggest challenge is finding more “regional supporters” for the third group.

There are 20 of these sponsorships for five regions. So far, only one company has signed up for 2018: Russia Alfa Bank.

FIFA said it expects more businesses to be added next year, but declined to comment further.

“It not a financial disaster for the FIFA or the World Cup, but it clear the tinsel has gone off the Christmas tree,” said Nally.

It proving difficult for FIFA to move beyond the corruption scandal, two years after it first burst into the open. A handful of former officials linked to FIFA still face graft charges in New York.

“The only thing you can do is re brand,” Nally said of FIFA. “They keep saying it changed, but has it? They need to rekindle confidence and they not going to do that with the FIFA name.”

adidas grand prix Finals And Farewells

I’m really looking forward to the Magners League grand final against the Ospreys at the weekend. The Heineken Cup tournament cannot be the be all and end all of any season for us as players.

Sure it is our priority and I’m not trying to downgrade the huge disappointment we felt in losing the semi final but you have to be pragmatic. We reached the penultimate stage of the competition in trying to defend our title, losing out to the eventual winners.

The Magners League is our bread and butter in terms of a league format and no one is going to feel short changed if we manage to win our third trophy in three seasons on Saturday. Trust me when I say, this matters a great deal to us as players. We have worked hard to get to a final and require one more high quality performance.

Last weekend I flew to Paris for the ERC celebrations and ended up sitting with Geordie (Murphy), Rob Howley and Martin Johnson amongst others at the dinner.

It was good to catch up with Axel (Anthony Foley), Wally (David Wallace) and Rog (Ronan O’Gara) who were also there.

Dougie Howlett and Jonah Lomu did a shoot for adidas on the Champs Elysees the following day.

It was good fun and nice to see the number of people that turned up.

Jonah is a nice fella, a consummate pro who has done a lifetime of these gigs and despite being about eight years on from his heyday still remains as popular as ever with the fans.

Plans for July are continuing apace and given that I am off to the southern Hemisphere shortly, there is still so much to do. At this time of the season there is always a backlog of things to attend to without any other consideration, so this time it’s really hectic.

Thankfully the coaches appreciate that we have quite a lot of miles in the legs and so training has been relatively light recently. The analysis for the Ospreys match was done last week and we’ll have two more training sessions on the Tuesday and Thursday ahead of the match.

Once the final is over, I’ll have a few days off before linking up with the Ireland squad, hopefully still possessing a beaming smile from the weekend.
