Bolt & Blake effect on kids in the race Joybeer Datta Gupta loves cricket and football but not more than sprinting. The Class IX student at La Martiniere for Boys trains in 100 metres at the Sports Authority of India’s Salt Lake facility and dreams of becoming a sprint champion like his idol Usain Bolt. His first step towards the goal? The state under-16 athletics meet next year, where his best of 11.7 seconds in training could earn him a podium finish since the state record in the age group is 11.2. Manoj Naskar, 16, would rather have posters of Yohan Blake and Mike Powell on his bedroom wall than of Virat Kohli or Lionel Messi. The Dhakuria boy’s love of athletics — he is a sprinter and long jumper — is not limited to following the Olympics and the World Athletics Championships on television. Twice a week, after school, Manoj trains at Sarobar Athletic Centre within Rabindra Sarobar Stadium to pursue his dream of becoming India’s best long jumper. Junior athletics is no longer the preserve of ...

ATHLETICS- Usain Bolt has qualified for the 100m event at this year's World Athletics Championships by winning the Jamaican trials in Kingston. The two-time Olympic champion over the distance clocked 9.94 seconds, slowing down as he crossed the line ahead of training partner Kemar Bailey-Cole who was second in 9.98. Nickel Ashmeade also qualified for August's championships in Moscow by finishing third in 9.99 but former world record holder Asafa Powell missed out. Powell, who has been struggling all season with injuries, finished a disappointing seventh in 10.22. Jamaican No 2 Yohan Blake did not take part because of a hamstring injury but he has already secured his place in Russia later this summer because he is the reigning champion over 100m.
MY EYES ARE ON THE PRIZE, WARNS BOLT Wednesday, 12 June 2013: Usain Bolt on Tuesday fired out a broadside at potential rivals at August's World Athletics Championships, saying that despite indifferent early season form his "eyes were on the prize". The Jamaican has six Olympic gold medals to his name, and is reigning double world 200m champion and also world record holder in both the 100m and 200m. But he sustained a blip in his exemplary career when he suffered a surprise defeat to American 2004 Olympic champion Justin Gatlin over 100m at the Rome leg of the 14-meet Diamond League circuit last week. Bolt was quick to laugh off critics, saying that although a hamstring tweak had set him back somewhat, he was not concerned about going to the worlds having suffered a loss - only his fourth in competition since 2008. "This season started off pretty good, but I picked up a slight hamstring problem which was a slight setback for me," he said ahead of Oslo's Bislett Games on Thursday. "It's all about training t ...
Yohan Blake pulls out of 200m at World Athletics Championships
NIGERIAN newfinds Oluwakemi Adekoye and Patience Okon each attained a World Athletics Championships qualifying standard on home soil. They each achieved the World Athletics Championships B qualifying standard at the Solid Works Athletics Federation of Nigeria Golden League meeting in Benin City Edo State South South Nigeria last Saturday (25 May). Adekoye won the women’s 400m hurdles in a lifetime best of 56.02seconds. Her previous best was 57.11 last week she also won the event in 57.22 in Port Harcourt. Patience Okon carried the day in the 400m in 51.90 seconds. The duo achieved these important results despite a heavy downpour which slowed down some athletes while also leading to the cancellation of several events. Adekoye and Okon are Nigeria’s first home-based athletes to attain this year’s world athletics championship qualifiers. Such was the strong wins and rains that the electronic timing system and wind reading gauge were affected by the weather conditions. RESULTS FROM THE SOLID WORKS ATHLE ...
This article, written by me and published on 22 August 2009 in Nigeria Village Square (see the link below) is re-published here as a tribute to late Mr Dan Enajekpo, one of the most dedicated sports administrator in Nigeria of old and who was mentioned in the article. His daughter informed me of his death of 29 April 2013 in Delta State where he was living since his retirement.   the IAAF World Athletics Championships in Berlin come to an end, I would like to moan (again) about the demise of Nigerian sports. With the ascent and domination of Jamaica in world athletics, especially in track and field events, it is sad that Nigeria went to this major definitive world sports event and will return with not a single medal, whatever the colour.   There we are glued in front of our television sets shouting Usain Bolt, Debbie Ferguson, Shelley-Ann Fraser, etc on, but not a Nigerian name to shout on in any of the finals. (Sorry, we did hear Nigerian names like Phillips Idowu, Marilyn Okoro and Christine Ohuruogu, ...
Pistorious to miss World Championships: Murder-accused South African sprinter, Oscar Pistorius, says he will not race this season. The decision means Pistorius will miss out on the August 10-18 World Athletics Championships in Moscow. Pistorius said he is not physically and mentally ready to compete at top level, as he has to focus on the upcoming court case. The double amputee, known as the "Blade runner" for his trademark artificial limbs, returns to court next month charged with gunning down his girlfriend on Valentine's Day.

The athletics track will have to go, won’t it? Not if the next generation of Mo Farahs and company are going to have something to run on in five years’ time. The stadium will host the 2017 World Athletics Championships after Lord Coe’s persuasive powers proved instrumental in bringing yet another major sporting event to London following the best Olympic Games in history. So West Ham fans will need binoculars to see the action then? Here’s where the money starts mounting up. A key part of West Ham’s bid is to retain the running track but they do not want fans match-day experience to suffer. The plan is to install retractable seating to slide over the running track to ensure Hammers’ fans continue to get a close up view of their club’s renaissance. Alright, the view will be OK but won’t we get soaked on a wet Wednesday night in January? Mercifully the weather held out for those magical nights in August but the stadium was originally conceived as a summer venue. Another chunk of cash has been ...
