(Photo by Joosep Martinson/Getty Images for IAAF)The World Athletics inspection team will be in Nairobi next week to scrutinize the organizational structures and work progress ahead of this year’s World U-20 Championships.This will be the third visit by the World Athletics.World Athletics’ executive director of communications Jackie Brock-Doyle and head of event operations Toni Jorba will be in Nairobi to check on renovation work and laying of tartan at Kasarani Stadium, the venue of the championships, which run from July 7-12.Athletics Kenya (AK) President Jack Tuwei on Monday said that the team’s visit will focus on the work done by the Local Organizing Committee, one year since their last show, where they met then Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echessa and other top government officials.“A strong delegation from World Athletics is due in Nairobi for inspection. It is a big team of about 25 delegates. They arrive in the country on February 11. They will be here on February 12-13 to meet the Organizing Committee. We have done much so far in preparing for their tour,” Tuwei said.World Athletics Council’s session on July 26 in Buenos Aires picked Nairobi as the host city of the next World Athletics U-20 Championships.Kenya won the bid following a largely successfully World U-18 Championships held in 2017 with a record turnout of over 60,000 fans attending.However, the curse of doping threatens to taint the most successful nation in track and field.More than 60 elite runners, including Rio Olympic marathon winner Jemima Sumgong and 1,500m three-time world champion Asbel Kiprop, have been suspended for doping.The visit will come barely a week after another delegation comprising of medical officials toured the country where they engaged with their counterparts in the country.“The third delegation who was majorly doctors was here last week and were able to take our doctors and physiotherapists through the requirements and expectations ahead of the event. They also fixed a device outside Kasarani to monitor air pollution within Nairobi,” added Tuwei.Relatedlast_img read more

Kuping Berdengung Saat Take Off? Jangan Panik dan Pahami Penyebabnya

first_imgBila dengungan masih terjadi dan terasa sakit saat sudah turun dari pesawat, Anda bisa meneteskan air hangat kedalam telinga dan tunggu beberapa saat atau minum obat sakit kepala untuk meredakan sakit akibat dari dengungan tersebutShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Related Pernah merasakan dengungan di telinga saat naik pesawat? Sebagian dari Anda kemungkinan pernah mengalaminya. Hal ini memang sering terjadi saat pesawat akan take off ataupun selama perjalanan di dalam pesawat. Dengungan yang anda rasakan biasa disebut Okulasi Tuba atau adanya penyumbatan yang terjadi di saluran tuba yang berada di dalam telinga.Saluran ini biasanya menyeimbangkan tekanan udara di telinga tengah dan tekanan udara di luar. Biasanya bila terjadinya perbedaan tekanan udara, maka saluran ini akan membuka dan membiarkan udara masuk ke telinga tengah sehingga tekanan menjadi seimbang.Bila muncul dengungan di telinga, Anda akan merespons dengan menelan ludah sehingga pendengaran menjadi normal kembali. Hal ini biasanya biasanya direspon orang yang berkondisi normal. Sebaliknya jika Anda dalam keadaan sakit seperti flu atau pilek, maka akan lebih sulit untuk menyeimbangkan tekanan tersebut.Untuk solusi terjadinya dengung, selain menelan ludah, seseorang juga bisa memakan permen. Karena sembari kita memakan permen, ludah yang dihasilkan akan tertelan. Untuk yang terkena penyakit flu/pilek dapat menggunakan obat tetes telinga sebelum berangkat.Selain makan permen atau menelan ludah, menggunakan tisu dan air hangat dipercaya juga bisa mengurangi efek dengung. Namun bila sulit di dapat, Anda bisa mengganti dengan menutup hidung dan menghembuskan nafas perlahan-lahan. Penggunaan ear plug juga bisa membantu mengurangi dengungan yang terjadi. Yang terakhir, biasanya faktor alam dari diri sendiri, dengan dinginnya AC dalam kabin pesawat membuat Anda mengantuk dan otomatis akan menguap. Karena menguap bisa menghilangkan dengungan di telinga.last_img read more

He escaped the first and third innings, leaving two runners on base in each, and another threat in the bottom of the seventh.Dansby Swanson, Vanderbilt’s All-American shortstop, scooped a ground ball up the middle and tried to make a spinning throw to first base. But his toss went wide, and Keaton Jones, the TCU hitter, advanced to second on the error.But Pfeifer and the Vanderbilt defense recovered again for a popout, strikeout and groundout to keep TCU off the board.Pfeifer finished with a four-hitter over seven shutout innings. He struck out seven and stranded seven TCU runners on base. The junior was not on last year’s national title team because of admitted substance abuse, but he pitched the Commodores to a Super Regional win over Illinois a week ago to punch the team’s second straight College World Series ticket.“(The College World Series) has lived up to expectations so far,” Pfeifer said. “I was just trying to soak up every minute of it.”Kendall’s walk-off homer halted dad’s work meetingFreshman Kyle Wright, who earned the win on Monday in two-thirds of an inning of relief, finished off the last two innings against TCU for the save.Similar to its 4-3 comeback win over Cal State Fullerton on Monday, Vanderbilt had little offense until the late innings.The Commodores loaded the bases in the third inning but got no runs.Jeren Kendall struck out swinging but reached first base on a passed ball. Catcher Karl Ellison’s sacrifice bunt attempt put another runner on when Young made an errant throw to first base. And then Ro Coleman walked to load the bases with one out and a pair of the team’s top hitters coming up.But Rhett Wiseman, a third-round draft pick, and Swanson, the No. 1 overall pick, both struck out swinging to end the inning and a prime scoring opportunity.Young was unflappable for the next three innings, striking out Wiel and Will Toffey for the second time each in the fourth. Then he fanned Kendall a second time and Ellison for the first time in the fifth.Coleman’s second strikeout came in the sixth, and Young looked to be cruising when Wiel turned on the 2-1 pitch in the seventh to end the no-hitter and shutout.Reach Adam Sparks at 615-259-8010 and on Twitter @AdamSparks.

OMAHA, Neb. – Vanderbilt‘s Zander Wiel broke up a no-hitter and sent the Commodores to the College World Series final four in a single swing Tuesday night.Wiel blasted a towering solo home run just inside the left-field foul pole in the seventh inning to carry Vanderbilt to a 1-0 win over TCU in the winners’ bracket.“It wasn’t a terrible pitch, but it was hittable,” Wiel said. “I just put one really good swing on it.”Vanderbilt (49-19), the defending national champion, earned a two-day break after winning tight games in back-to-back days. The Commodores will play at 7 p.m. Friday against the TCU-LSU winner.One more win will send Vanderbilt back to the national championship series.“That felt like a championship-style game in every way,” Vanderbilt coach Tim Corbin said. “We felt like one run could make the difference, and that’s the way it shaped up.”Vandy’s strength amazes FullertonTCU’s Alex Young (9-3) and Vanderbilt’s Philip Pfeifer (6-4) staged a pitcher’s duel, as the teams combined for 25 strikeouts, a TD Ameritrade Park record. But the Commodores got the one big swing from Wiel that made the difference.“It was one mistake, and his bat ran into the ball,” Young said. “Every other pitch I threw for a strike. That one was just bad luck.”TCU (50-14) will play LSU at 7 p.m. Thursday in an elimination game.Wiel’s home run came out of nowhere, as Young carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning after already tying the TD Ameritrade Park record with 12 strikeouts.But Wiel ended that near-flawless night with his 15th homer of the season, tied for the team high, and his fourth long ball of the postseason.Young was pulled with two outs in the eighth inning, after giving up one run on three hits.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

Brighton star opens up about long recovery from injury – Describes…

first_imgArriving from Club Brugge for £13.5m following Brighton & Hove Albion’s promotion back to the Premier League, José Izquierdo quickly became a fan favourite at the Amex Stadium. Using his blistering pace up and down the wing, the Colombian eventually earned himself a spot in his country’s squad for the 2018 World Cup, where he unfortunately got injured.Dismissing the knee pain as a simple knock, the player continued training, but it quickly became apparent there was more to it, and a tear in his meniscus was diagnosed after the tournament.Speaking to El Caracol in his home country, the forward explained all the steps he has undergone since that moment.He first had to have an arthroscopy on his meniscus, which caused him to be out for 3-4 months, but when he returned, he unfortunately picked up another lesion in the same meniscus.Not wanting to have another surgery, he looked for other options, even going to see a specialist in Spain, which led to him training just twice a week with Brighton and having to take anti-inflammatories on weekends to try and play.He says that made life ‘difficult for him’, caused him a ‘lot of pain’.Embed from Getty ImagesIn fact, he goes as far as describing it as a ‘viacrucís’, which translates as his ‘way of the cross’, a period of his life made up of one suffering after another.In the end, there was no other option than for him to have another operation, which he underwent back on May 4th, and he has been recovering ever since.The player never gave a return date during the interview, but made it clear he was doing everything in his power to return as soon as possible, all the while ensuring he would do so fully fit and with his knee issues behind him.Already forcing the problem once, doing so again could be very serious for his future, and that’s something he made clear he wants to avoid.When he does return, he will do so to a team playing a different football to the one he knew under Chris Hughton as they are now managed by Graham Potter.He’s fully aware of that, as he said: “They’re playing a completely different football, practically from one extreme to the other, from being conservative to having the ball more and playing on the front foot. It’s a transition. “There’s not been much time to get the players to adapt to this idea and they are learning every game. I’m really impressed as to how we’re going forward and I hope the wins come and an improvement in the league position”.It’s fair to say Izquierdo is itching to get back on the pitch and looking forward to playing under a new manager where perhaps his skill and pace could be used to better effect than they were under Chris Hughton.Since signing, the 27-year-old has made 47 league appearances, scored five goals and assisted teammates six Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayMisterStocksThese Hilarious Photos Were Captured On The SubwayMisterStocksUndoForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Arsenal interest in midfielder backed up – Gunners official has already…

first_imgThe Dutch media continues to be occupied by the recent reports saying Arsenal are following the Feyenoord midfielder Orkun Kökcü. It was first the English press who said the Gunners would be ready to spend €27m on the player, and that sounded like a great opportunity for the Eredivisie side to make some cash.That’s why local journalist Sinclair Bischo recently said that Feyenoord ‘have to do it right away’ in case this bid from Arsenal arrives.Now on the Veronica Inside TV show, it was time for journalist Martijn Krabbendam to bring his take on the case. He confirms that Arsenal are interested in the player, but claims that there’s competition from a Spanish side as well.It was also explained a Gunners official has travelled to the Netherlands, presumably to scout or chat with the player.Embed from Getty Images“Not only are Arsenal an option. They have been to Rotterdam, but Sevilla have also been to Rotterdam to talk to him and try to get him to Spain. He would prefer to stay at Feyenoord,” he said (via Soccer News).However, he’s also claimed that players at Feyenoord have been demanding big salaries since they’ve seen how much Liam Kelly earned there. It’s created a problem for the Dutch side to hold their youngsters, and perhaps the Gunners could benefit from Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
