first_imgThere is a fine line between an emergency having a successful or a tragic outcome, and it is fortunate that the stars aligned to prevent a true disaster at Magheroarty beach on Tuesday.Fifteen lives were saved in a major rescue operation after swimmers got caught in a riptide at the West Donegal beach yesterday eveningStaff and young students of the local Gael Linn summer college were swimming near the beach when the tide unexpectedly took them out to sea. The majority of the group were teenagers who were in difficulty for approximately 20 minutes as the alarm was raised. A number of lucky factors combined with the quick action and expertise of emergency crews ensured all 15 were brought to safety.“We got the emergency 999 calls yesterday from people reporting persons in the water. We scrambled the Sligo Rescue 118 helicopter and lucky enough it was up on an exercise over Donegal Bay,” said Dara O’Malley-Daly, Station Officer with the Coast Guard at Malin Head.Rescue 118 at the scene at Machaire Rabhartaigh. Photo: Cllr Michael Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig“The local Coast Guard Mulroy team and the HSE ambulances were tasked.“A pan-pan emergency message was issued to call on any vessel in the sea to come to assist. Luckily there was local fishing boats around and the Tory-Magheraroarty Ferry answered the call. “We are very fortunate that members of the public phoned in using 999 and we are very lucky that fishermen responded to the call. Between the people on the shore, the local vessels and the emergency services, everyone was saved.“There is a fine line between success and everything going south, as we say,” Mr O’Malley-Daly said.The swimmers were treated for shock, cold and the effects of hypothermia. Nine were airlifted to Letterkenny University Hospital and one person was transported by ambulance.Nine of the group were discharged on Tuesday night after assessments. The college principal was also in the water and is believed to be still in hospital and making a good recovery.“I can imagine the principal was trying his hardest to save the students,” Mr O’Malley-Daly said. Riptides can appear in the water around Donegal’s beaches at certain times of the year.“It is like a river of water going out from the shore. You can’t swim against it. Our advice is to swim parallel to it and you will get out. Then line up with something on the shore and swim ashore,” Mr O’Malley-Daly said.“It is very frightening when something is pulling you out but the main thing is not to panic, which is easier said than done, the riptide actually dissipates once it goes out for a period of time.“And if anyone sees someone in difficulty they should call the Coast Guard on 999/112 “The one thing you can’t take back is time, and fortunately there were people on the beach to ring yesterday,” he said.Mr O’Malley-Daly also advised that people should only swim on lifeguarded beaches.He said: “Sadly at the station, we have been in situations where people have lost their lives in 5 or 10 seconds. The kids yesterday were in difficulty for about 20 minutes up to when the alarm was raised so thankfully this was a good outcome.”Magheroarty Rescue: ‘Lucky’ factors prevented tragedy at sea was last modified: August 16th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Magheroartylast_img read more

first_img23 November 2012 Football fans can expect a carpet-perfect pitch at Johannesburg’s FNB Stadium for the opening match of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon), says the City of Johannesburg. The FNB Stadium will host the Afcon opening ceremony and opening match on 19 January, as well as the final match and closing ceremony on 10 February. The pitch at South Africa’s flagship football venue was damaged during a Linkin Park rock concert ahead of the Nelson Mandela Challenge match between Bafana Bafana and Zambia a week ago.Semi-artificial surface for FNB Stadium Chris Vondo, member of the City’s mayoral committee for community development, said: “In terms of the pitch which appears to be bumpy, this matter to us is history. Come the opening day of the tournament, the pitch will be ready … we’ve ordered the desso, which is a long-term solution.” Vondo was speaking to reporters at FNB stadium on Thursday after making a presentation to the Afcon local organising committee (LOC) about Johannesburg’s state of readiness for the tournament. Desso is a sports playing field surface composed of natural grass combined with artificial fibres. The artificial grass fibres are injected 20 centimetres deep, and cover about 3 percent of the surface while the grass is growing; the roots intertwine with the artificial fibres. The 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa was the first international football tournament to be played on grass pitches partly made up of artificial grass. The system was installed at Nelspruit’s Mbombela Stadium and Polokwane’s Peter Mokaba Stadium. According to Vondo, the City of Johannesburg will install the desso after the Soweto derby between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates on 8 December. There are fears that “the calabash stadium” will resemble a cabbage-patch for the derby because of a Lady Gaga concert taking place there on 30 November.City of Joburg ‘ready for Afcon’ Afcon LOC chief executive officer Mvuzo Mbebe reiterated that the pitch at FNB stadium would be ready for the opening match between Bafana Bafana and Cape Verde. “This pitch will be at the standard that we require it to be, whether there is going to be a concert or no concert between now and the tournament.” “The City of Johannesburg is quite advanced with their preparations, and we are happy with what we’ve seen in terms of their training venues, that include Dobsonville, Rand, Orlando and Milpark stadiums.” Mbebe said that the LOC was comfortable with the plan presented to it by the city. “What is left for all of us is to get the tickets and come to the stadium in large numbers on January 19,” he said. Afcon project coordinator for the City of Johannesburg, Bongi Bokaba said the city had lined up a series of events to make sure that there was maximum visibility and awareness about the tournament. “Our commitment is to ensure that our residents embrace the Afcon in line with the LOC’s call to action, which is ‘eyethu – Be Part of it’. “We want to use football to build social cohesion in the city, because we want Johannesburg to be the city of choice during the tournament,” she said.

first_imgHouston walk on scholarships awarded at team film session.YouTube/UHAthleticsWe can’t get enough of videos of college football walk-ons getting awarded scholarships. The life of a walk-on can be pretty thankless at times, especially when players have to balance schoolwork and all of the rigors of Division I athletics, without the benefit of a scholarship. A full ride can be life-changing for walk-ons and their families, and these videos always show how important those guys are to their teammates.On Wednesday, Houston head coach Tom Herman awarded two walk-ons—senior tight end Hayden Daniels and senior cornerback Tyler White—with scholarships for their final years. Herman was a bit tricky about it, opening by getting on the walk-ons who hadn’t yet had holds lifted by the university, chastising the group for a lack of “urgency,” before surprising the pair with their full rides. Daniels appeared in four games for the Cougars last year, while White played in all 13 games, registering 12 total tackles and fielding a crucial onside kick that helped spark Houston’s 35-34 comeback win over Pittsburgh in the Armed Forces Bowl.last_img read more

Ohio State freshman guard Luther Muhammad (1) dribbles the ball during the first half of the game against Northwestern on Feb. 20. Ohio State won 63-49. Credit: Amal Saeed | Assistant Photo EditorTuesday will begin a closing stretch of games head coach Chris Holtmann views as one of the toughest of the season for Ohio State. The Buckeyes will face three Big Ten teams currently ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 in the final four games of the regular season: No. 22 Iowa, No. 14 Purdue and No. 19 Wisconsin. With an Ohio State team on the bubble for a spot in the NCAA Tournament, and with this stretch of games heading into the Big Ten tournament, Holtmann said his team is in a position not many teams have the opportunity to be in. “We all know what was said about this group earlier in the year, before the season got started, and we’ve got an opportunity here to see how we can finish,” Holtmann said. “We get what we earn.” Projected StartersOhio State (17-10, 7-9 Big Ten)G — C.J. Jackson — Senior, 12.5 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 3.4 apgG — Luther Muhammad — Freshman, 8.9 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 2.0 apgF — Justin Ahrens — Freshman, 2.1 ppg, 1.3 rpg, 0.2 apgF — Andre Wesson — Junior, 8.9 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 1.7 apgF — Kaleb Wesson — Sophomore, 14.4 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 1.7 apgNo. 22 Iowa (21-6, 10-6 Big Ten)G — Jordan Bohannon — Junior, 11.7 ppg, 2.2 rpg, 3.5 apgG — Joe Wieskamp — Freshman, 11.1 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 1.0 apgG — Isaiah Moss — Redshirt junior, 9.9 ppg, 2.8 rpg, 1.9 apgF — Tyler Cook — Junior, 16.0 ppg, 8.0 rpg, 2.5 apgF — Luka Garza — Sophomore, 13.3 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 0.9 apgAs the No. 6 team in the Big Ten, the Hawkeyes have won five of their past six games, taking a 76-70 overtime win against Indiana Friday. Iowa will bring the No. 1 scoring offense in the conference to Columbus Tuesday, averaging 80.4 points per game and shooting 46.6 percent from the field, which is second-best behind Michigan State. Ohio State already has an idea of what the Iowa offense looks like, having lost to the Hawkeyes 72-62 Jan. 12. Despite the Buckeyes leading 26-24 at halftime, Iowa exploded to make 15-of-27 from the field in the second half.“We thought that it was a win,” sophomore forward Kaleb Wesson said. “I feel like going into the second half, we didn’t have the same intensity and came out with the same toughness that we had the first time in the first half.” Much of the Hawkeyes’ success was due to the play of its two starting forwards: junior Tyler Cook and sophomore Luka Garza. Against Ohio State, they combined for 31 points, converting on 11-of-17 attempts from the field with 12 rebounds. Wesson said that both Iowa forwards do a good job of sealing, getting them multiple touches in the paint. Holtmann said the reason why both forwards have put up the numbers they have is because of the shooting ability of the rest of the starting lineup. The Hawkeyes are No. 3 in the Big Ten in 3-point field goal percentage. In his first year with the Buckeyes, Holtmann knew of Cook, the player who leads Iowa this season with 16 points per game. But Garza was the one who made the lasting impact. “I was so impressed with Garza last year when we played them,” Holtmann said. “And he has proven to be as good of a player as he is.” Garza made 6-of-7 shot attempts against the Buckeyes Jan. 12, leading the team with 16 points. On the outside, Holtmann said senior guard C.J. Jackson will return to the starting lineup after being sidelined with a shoulder injury Saturday against Maryland. After earning his first career start against the Terrapins Saturday, freshman forward Justin Ahrens will continue to have opportunities in an increased role, Holtmann said. He added that the starting spot is still “fluid,” though. In five games against ranked opponents this season, Ohio State is winless. Its past two losses to ranked teams have been by double digits. However, Holtmann said he senses a level of urgency heading into Tuesday’s matchup with the Hawkeyes, saying, “You’ve got to be living in a cave if you don’t have that feeling.” But the number attached to Iowa does not change the mentality of Wesson ahead of Tuesday’s game. “Every game from now [on] is the biggest game of the season,” Wesson said. “We have to go into practice and think our biggest game is Tuesday.” Ohio State will take on No. 22 Iowa at the Schottenstein Center at 7 p.m. Tuesday. read more

first_imgAs AC Milan are not likely to qualify for the Champions League, Suso has been said to leave the club at the end of the season as many clubs would be interested in bringing him.Christian Abbiati, the AC Milan club manager, still believes that they will be able to make the Spaniard stay and he doesn’t want to hear about a possible swap deal with Napoli and José Callejón.The former Rossoneri keeper spoke about Suso’s situation, according to Calcio Mercato:Maurizio Sarri, JuventusMaurizio Sarri satisfied despite Juventus’ draw at Fiorentina Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri was satisfied with Juventus’ performance on Saturday afternoon after finishing a tough game at Fiorentina 0-0.“Callejon-Suso exchange? Callejon is a great player, but we have Suso who is a champion and I would keep him close, and if Callejon should come too, so be it.”He also shared his opinion on the current affair around Buffon:“Buffon is partly justifiable because such a call 30 seconds from the end is painful but I think he has reviewed it and knows he was wrong. He is a great champion, it can happen to go beyond the lines sometimes but it is understandable.”last_img read more
