first_imgThe California Gamma chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon at USC will close for the next three years based on a decision made by the fraternity’s national council yesterday evening.“Basically their national organization was concerned about the chapter and, after thorough investigation and conversations with members of the chapter, they had reason to believe that the chapter wasn’t upholding the values of their national standards,” said Tanner Sandoval, president of the Interfraternity Council.The decision was made by the national organization alone. Sandoval said the university was not involved.SAE’s house on 28th Street, which is owned by the fraternity’s national council, will no longer be occupied by members of the fraternity.SAE Chapter President Matthew Kasten declined to comment on the matter.In March, SAE’s national council announced it would ban the pledging process on a national scale due to deadly incidents at chapters throughout the country. At the time, the fraternity had seen 10 alcohol-related deaths since 2006.USC’s chapter of SAE was put on probation in October 2013 after a Loyola Marymount University student sustained serious injuries from falling off a table at a party at the fraternity house. The university also imposed sanctions on The Row following the incident due to a string of alcohol-related transports.last_img read more

The 10,000m team would have to arrive last, if they are to have a chance to be first.The world’s two best cross-country runners, 23-year-old Joshua Cheptegei and Jacob Kiplimo, 18, joined by Abdallah Kibet Mande, completed their high-altitude training in the hills of Kapchorwa on Monday. They, Wednesday night, became the last members of Team Uganda to fly to Doha for the athletics World Championships.High altitude training is expected to give them those extra seconds of energy, and an oxygen boost, that could make the difference between a medal or none, at Sunday’s 10,000m final.At ‎1,915 m (6,283 ft) above sea level, Kapchorwa is an ideal training ground for long distance athletes. Experts say that elevation enables them acclimatize to the “relative lack of oxygen in one or more ways such as increasing the mass of red blood cells and hemoglobin, or altering muscle metabolism – giving them a competitive advantage.”Many elite athletes live permanently at high altitude, only returning to sea level to compete, as the Ugandan team just did.. 201798Abdallah Kibet MANDEUGA27:22.8927:22.89 19235Rodrigue KWIZERABDI 15FRANCE0112 14CANADA0134 7GREAT BRITAIN & N.I.1102 9JAPAN1001 9AUSTRALIA1001 9NETHERLANDS1001 6701Hagos GEBRHIWETETH26:48.9526:48.95 15BAHRAIN0112 The 10,000m finalCheptegei will be favourite in Sunday’s final that will be the first since 2013 that Mo Farah is not the man to beat in the 25 lap race.  By the time he retired last year, Farah had captures 10 successive world or Olympic titles in the 10,000 metres.At the last event in London 2017, Cheptegei set the pace but was edged in the final moments by the legend.It is that silver medal that Cheptegei will hope to improve on this time round. If he does, he will become only the fourth Ugandan to win World Athletics Championship gold, joining Dorcus Inzikuru in Helsinki 2005, Stephen Kiprotich in Moscow 2013 and Halimah Nakaayi at Doha 2019.Other medals for Uganda at the Worlds have been two Silvers by Davis Kamoga Athens 1997 and Joshua Cheptegei 2017; Bronzes by Moses Kipsiro Osaka 2007 and Solomon Mutai in Beijing 2015.The reward for winning a World Championship gold is a tax-free $60,000 prize.
