first_imgEVANSVILLE, IN – The ECHL Board of Governors completed its midseason meeting Monday and officially approved the transfer of the Evansville IceMen to Owensboro, KY.With support from its member teams, the ECHL also approved the IceMen’s request for a voluntary suspension for the 2016-17 season to allow for the necessary renovations of the Owensboro Sportscenter. The City of Owensboro and Mayor Ron Payne have also granted the IceMen an extension to begin the renovations of the Owensboro Sportscenter to September 30, 2016.“With a 66-year-old building, this is something that we want to do right,” said IceMen Owner Ron Geary. “Out of fairness to the ECHL’s other member teams, this is not a project we can rush to complete. We want the Owensboro Sportscenter to be a great place to watch a hockey game, with amenities that are attractive to the fans.”Geary added that there is still some uncertainty with the impending costs for such renovations, which requires more time to finalize.“We appreciate the support of the ECHL, its member teams, the City of Owensboro and our great fans in understanding our desire to keep the IceMen in this region and the time it will take to complete these renovations,” said Geary.While the IceMen work to renovate their new home, staff will continue to pursue sponsorship opportunities and a season ticket holder base in preparation for the 2017-18 season, and will remain active in the community.

first_imgAfter gardening in the blazing sun all day, there is nothing better than enjoying the fruits (or flowers) of your labor in the evening, glass of wine in hand. Staff members with the Trial Gardens at the University of Georgia are offering gardeners, and garden fans, the chance to experience the fruits of their hard work this summer with the seventh annual “Evening in the Garden,” set for Thursday, Oct. 9, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The gardens are open to the public daily, but one of the best times to visit the garden is in the evening as the sun is setting—when the garden takes on a relaxing, romantic ambiance. There is no better time to do this than during the “Evening in the Garden” event. “As the sun is setting low in the sky, the harsh sunlight is filtered and one can really enjoy the vibrant flower colors found in the garden,” said John Ruter, director of the Trial Gardens and a professor in the UGA Department of Horticulture. “Also, with the weather cooling off, many of the flowers that suffered through the heat of the summer will perk up and start blooming again before first frost later in the year.” Since 1982, the Trial Gardens at the University of Georgia have been used as a literal testing ground for plants from around the world. By testing new breeds of annuals and perennials, the Trial Gardens’ staff has helped introduce new plants to the Southeast’s green industry and the general public. While the Trial Gardens’ plant evaluations are respected across the globe, the gardens themselves remain a beautiful, secluded getaway in the middle of the university’s bustling campus. The event will highlight plants that have survived the summer heat and flourish in the fall. Ruter will lead tours of the garden, provide fall gardening advice and share his impressions of this year’s new plants. For gardeners who are planning to add some trees and shrubs to their landscapes this fall, signed copies of Ruter’s latest book, “Landscaping with Conifers and Ginkgo for the Southeast,” will be for sale for $30. Guests can enjoy a pleasant stroll through the Trial Gardens while experiencing a taste of the Mediterranean, with snacks and wine provided by The Healthy Gourmet in Athens and Oli + Ve’s of Roswell’s collection of olive oil. The Paul Nelson Jazz Combo will provide entertainment, and pottery by Athens potter Elise Binder will be on display. “An Evening in the Garden” is an event for all ages. A $7 donation is requested and goes to help sustain the gardens. Parking will be available in the McPhaul Center parking lot across from Stegeman Coliseum. The Trial Gardens are located at 220 W. Green St. between Snelling Dining Commons and the UGA Pharmacy Building.

first_imgWORLD Rugby has published guidelines for the safe return to rugby activities in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic via its player welfare website.Developed by medical experts following consultation with union chief medical officers, competition owners and players, the guidelines are intended to assist unions, clubs and competitions in creating a framework and policy for return to rugby activity within their respective jurisdictions.Unions and competition owners will need to comply with local laws and policies implemented by government or local authorities in relation to COVID-19, including social distancing and travel measures.For the avoidance of doubt, this does not mean that matches will have to be played behind closed doors until a vaccine is available – the strategy will be determined by the respective national government directives.The guidelines have two core sections containing important information. The first section provides safety information to everyone involved in the game including players, coaches, support and administrative staff.The second section provides a framework around which national unions can prepare best-practice policies and guidelines for return to activity that are appropriate to their local setting, complying with national guidelines on social distancing and travel restrictions.The guidelines, which are World Health Organization (WHO) compliant, outline three dedicated time-bound return-to-training phases – small group training, full group non-contact training and full contact training.It also documents the environment for returning to match action in a domestic, cross-border and cross-continent context and processes for facility and stadium.World Rugby also stresses that, as a live document operation in a dynamic pandemic context, it will be updated regularly with unions informed of any modifications. Further language versions will be available shortly.“We are all missing the sport that we know and love, and while it is difficult not to be playing or training, advice by the respective governments and authorities must be adhered to,” World Rugby Chairman Sir Bill Beaumont noted.“World Rugby, in full partnership with unions and players, has been busy behind the scenes ensuring that everything is in place for a safe and speedy return to the sport when it is appropriate to do so.“This includes delivering best-practice coaching, refereeing and conditioning webinars, resources and Apps and, of course, a phased roadmap for the sport’s return to training and playing,” Beaumont said.World Rugby Chief Medical Officer and guideline co-author Dr Éanna Falvey added that they “…have been working in full collaboration with unions, regions, competitions and players in preparing a set of guidelines that are WHO compliant in a rugby context. They outline all the necessary considerations and steps for players, coaches, clubs, unions and competitions and will be updated regularly as the advice and environment evolves.”The guidelines were authored by Falvey, Dr Martin Raftery (World Rugby), Prav Mathema (Welsh Rugby Union), Prof Mary Horgan (consultant physician of infectious diseases) and supported by data collected through regional COVID-19 steering group chairs who consulted with World Rugby’s 124 national member unions.last_img read more

first_imgWith Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Daniel Jacobs clashing on May 4, obviously a GGG-Canelo trilogy or a Golovkin-Jacobs rematch would be amazing. But there are other intriguing opponents out there for Golovkin and Sporting News explores some of them here.Join DAZN to watch GGG in June and 100+ fight nights a yearDemetrius AndradeThis is the biggest fight to make. Demetrius Andrade has competed twice since agreeing to a deal with Matchroom Boxing and plying his craft on DAZN. Andrade thoroughly dominated Walter Kautondokwa in October when he knocked him down four times to win a lopsided decision and the vacant WBO title. The 31-year-old then made a quick return in January, when he defeated Artur Akavov by 12th-round TKO. After the fight, Andrade called out Golovkin. GGG vs. Andrade checks all the boxes. They both are on the same platform, so negotiations would be fairly easily. Add in the fact that Andrade has a championship belt, with the winner setting himself up for an undisputed title fight with the Alvarez-Jacobs winner. It doesn’t get any better than that.Jermall CharloJermall Charlo struggled against last-second replacement Matt Korobov, but did enough to earn a hard-nosed victory in December. A Golovkin clash would be difficult to make since Charlo aligned with Premier Boxing Champions and now Golovkin being with DAZN. Still, it would be very exciting since they are the two hardest punchers in the division. Charlo is one of the best middleweights in the sport. But all of boxing’s top fighters at 160 pounds are on DAZN. He’s repeatedly called out Golovkin. If the skilled boxer from Houston wants to be among the elite, he’s going to have meet GGG on his terms. Rob BrantA wildcard in all of this and an exciting option, Rob Brant pulled off a shocking upset to many in boxing when he knocked off Ryota Murata in October to capture the WBA (regular) middleweight strap. He followed it up with a thrilling 11th-round TKO of Khasan Baysangurov in February. Brant is a volume puncher who likes to mix it up, which is right up Golovkin’s alley. It was revealed on Friday morning that former unified middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin agreed to a six-fight deal with DAZN.The hard-hitting native of Kazakhstan will compete twice a year over the next three years, with his first fight on the sports streaming service in June against an opponent to be determined.  David LemieuxDavid Lemieux was supposed to fight on the Canelo Alvarez-Rocky Fielding card this past December, but he was hospitalized due to severe dehydration during the morning of the weigh-in and his fight against Tureano Johnson was scrapped. But prior to that, Lemieux looked good in disposing of Gary O’Sullivan via a first-round KO in September. If Lemieux would move up to super middleweight and Golovkin pulls a Canelo in moving up to another weight class for one fight, then this would be an intriguing bout.Matt KorobovIf GGG wants to get his feet wet in the fight game again, but receive a tough challenge in the process, perhaps he should give Matt Korobov a look. The tough Russian took Jermall Charlo the distance in December, slugging it out before dropping the unanimous decision. The one thing about Korobov is he fights and given Golovkin’s penchant for doing the same, this scrap would be an entertaining one.Jaime MunguiaJaime Munguia is currently the WBO junior middleweight champion. Moving up to 160 and daring to be great against GGG, would have all of the ingredients to make Golovkin’s debut on DAZN a splashy one. Considering how both Munguia and GGG are forward fighters, this one would have fireworks.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.
