Tata Mumbai Marathon: Ethiopian Hurisa creates course record

first_img SUBSCRIBE TO US Written By Press Trust Of India LIVE TV COMMENT “I was nervous to start because I had spent so long without racing, but I started to feel confident at about 31 kilometres and I was certain I could win from about 36 kilometres,”said Beriso.”With a kilometre to go, my (male) pacemaker Sylvester Kiptoo was pointing at his watch and was telling me I could still get the course record but I was tired. I tried but I couldn’t do it,” she added. Men1. Derara Hurisa (ETH)     2:08:092. Ayele Abshero (ETH)     2:08:203. Birhanu Teshome (ETH)   2:08:264. Jackson Kiprop (UGA)    2:08:415.

Maeregu Hayelom (ETH)   2:31:26. Nevertheless, Beriso will go into the record books as the second-fastest woman in Mumbai Marathon’s history, despite finishing 18 seconds outside the 2014 course record of Kenyas Valentine Kipketer.Results  WATCH US LIVEcenter_img READ | Maharashtra Weightlifters Win Gold, Keep State In Driving Seat First Published: 19th January, 2020 18:34 IST FOLLOW US Derara Hurisa wasn’t the the favourite for Tata Mumbai Marathon 2020 but the Ethiopian upset the odds to win in a course record of 2:08:09 on Sunday. Hurisa was rewarded with his biggest ever payday, a USD 45,000 winners cheque and a USD 15,000-course record bonus. The amount he picked up on Sunday for his stunning win was more than he had pocketed across his entire career. Last Updated: 19th January, 2020 18:34 IST Tata Mumbai Marathon: Ethiopian Hurisa Creates Course Record Derara Hurisa wasn’t the the favourite for Tata Mumbai Marathon 2020 but the Ethiopian upset the odds to win in a course record of 2:08:09 on Sunday READ | Bajrang, Ravi Claim Gold Medals In Rome Ranking SeriesIn a thrilling finish to the 17th edition of TMM, three men approached the last kilometre together, but Hurisa went through the gears as the trio passed that check point and he pulled away from his compatriots Ayele Abshero and Birhanu Teshome. Abshero and Teshome finished second and third respectively in a time of 2:08:20 and 2:08:26, both coming inside the previous course record of 2:08:35. Prior to Sunday, 22-year-old Hurisa’s most notable achievement was winning the silver medal in the African Cross Country Championships U20 race four years ago.This was Hurisa’s second international win, the other being a low-key half marathon in Turkey in 2017. The men’s race started at a pace which indicated a course record was on the cards, and the weather was several degrees cooler. A large group of 18 men, including pacemakers, sped through the 10km marker in 30.01, 20km in 1:00:35 and hit the halfway mark in 1:03:52. However, as the second half of the race progressed, runners started to regularly drop off the back of the leading pack with the leaders passing 30km in 1:30:52 although eight men still remained in contention at 35km.READ | Noël Leads From Kristoffersen In 1st Slalom Run At WengenAs the runners passed the 36km marker, Teshome put his head down and started pumping his arms, attempting to almost sprint away from his rivals. It was a short-lived surge but it had the effect of splintering what remained of the pack. With four kilometres left, Hurisa, Abshero and Teshome still had Uganda’s 2013 Mumbai Marathon winner Jackson Kiprop for company and their Ethiopian compatriot Abera Kuma, after going through a bad patch, was back in contention. First Abera and then Kiprop broke off with three kilometres to go, but the Ethiopian trio stayed together, testing each other, until Harisa made his decisive move.Kenya’s defending champion Cosmas Lagat had much earlier dropped out injured at around 14 kilometres. In the women’s race, Amane Beriso stormed back after a 15-month injury-induced absence from competition to win the Tata Mumbai Marathon 2020 in a time of 2:24:51. Despite being 38 seconds adrift of race leader Kenya’s Rodah Jepkorir at the 30km checkpoint, with Ethiopia’s defending champion Worknesh Alemu drifting back off the lead and shortly to drop out, over the next kilometre Beriso reeled in Jepkorir and then overhauled the 2019 winner of the Gold Coast and Buenos Aires Marathons. Once out on her own, Beriso was never challenged and, despite looking extremely tired over the final few kilometres, she came home more than two minutes clear of Jepkorir who crossed the line second in 2:27:14 with Ethiopia’s marathon debutante Haven Hailu third in 2:28:56.READ | India’s Rashid Khan Finishes Eighth, Misses Berth To The Open In addition, the race was won with a pair of borrowed racing shoes. “I misplaced my shoes while travelling from Addis Ababa to Mumbai earlier in the week. So I borrowed some shoes from my friend Abraham Girma (who also ran the Tata Mumbai Marathon). So I only tried them on for the first time yesterday,” Hurisa revealed after the race.last_img read more

After 12 days of wedded bliss, Pamela Anderson and Jon Peters call it quits

first_imgPeters and Anderson in 1989/ Photo by Ron Galella, Ltd./Ron Galella Collection via Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — In the time it takes for most people to ditch a diet, Pamela Anderson and producer Jon Peters have declared their marriage over, notes The Hollywood Reporter.The pair have known each other for decades and dated briefly around 1989, but the wedding — the fifth for both — took place January 20 in Malibu, California.The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the couple was kaput, noting that the pair hadn’t even obtained the required legal paperwork to get their marriage license. In a statement to the trade, the former Baywatch star said, “I have been moved by the warm reception to Jon and my union. We would be very grateful for your support as we take some time apart to re-evaluate what we want from life and from one another.”The actress, who reportedly flew back to her native Canada, added, “Life is a journey and love is a process. With that universal truth in mind, we have mutually decided to put off the formalization of our marriage certificate and put our faith in the process. Thank you for respecting our privacy.”Back in happier times, aka a little over two weeks ago, producer Peters, 74, noted to THR, “There are beautiful girls everywhere. I could have my pick, but — for 35 years — I’ve only wanted Pamela.”The pair first met when Anderson, now 52, was 19. “In 30 years, our age difference won’t mean so much,” Peters said he told her at the time.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Fantasy Trade Value: Week 12 buy-low, sell-high targets, stock watch ahead fantasy playoffs

first_imgFantasy Stock Watch: Moving upTheo Riddick, RB, Lions. It’s hard to envision Riddick not being owned in a lot of 12-14 team PPR leagues already, so the Kerryon Johnson injury news tremendously improves his stock. LeGarrette Blount is no threat to him in the passing game, and we know the Lions love airing it out on a week-to-week basis. Riddick already had a role on this team as the primary pass-catching back, notching 41 catches up to this point in the year. He has 18 catches over his past three games and is poised for even more volume coming his way in Week 12. Riddick is someone on my radar for not only this week, but also moving forward with the extent of Johnson’s injury uncertain.THANKSGIVING DFS LINEUPS: FanDuel | DraftKingsFantasy Football Stock Watch: Moving downSterling Shepard, WR, Giants. I, for one, thought that Shepard would have a prominent role with the New York Football Giants, but outside of a couple of weeks this season, that just isn’t the case. He only has five targets and 31 yards combined over the past two games, and you can see the concerted effort the Giants are placing on putting the ball in Saquon Barkley, Odell Beckham Jr., and Evan Engram’s hands. Shepard does have seven games with seven or more targets, which is something you can sell to other league owners, but he’s also had fewer than 40 receiving yards in four of his past five games. You could still get some value out of him despite his struggles because he has flashed big upside not only this year, but also last season. The fantasy playoffs are now breathing down our necks, and a lot of us are unsure if we’re going to make or miss the cut. To ensure we do everything we can to get in and have a chance at winning a fantasy championship, we need to have our the best rosters we can assemble. That means looking at the trade market — in leagues where the deadline hasn’t passed — and the waiver wire to find ways to buy low and sell high on key players ahead of Week 12.Sometimes, it’s hard to make a deal — or even an add/drop transaction — without feeling at least a bit of regret about getting rid of a guy. Still, we’re here to provide advice to help you win your fantasy league. Here is a list of guys we should look to acquire (or add) or deal (or drop) before making a last-second playoff push. MORE: Dominate your league with Fantasy Alarm’s season-long toolsFantasy Trade Value: Buy lowGolden Tate, WR, Eagles. The Eagles looked abysmal, to say the least, this past week against the Saints, but head coach Doug Peterson stayed true to his word when he said Tate would be more involved in the offense. Tate paced the Eagles’ passing game in targets, receptions, and yards. The reason we buy low on someone like Tate, especially in PPR formats, is because of the sheer volume he gets year in and year out. He’s had 90 or more receptions for four straight seasons while eclipsing the 1,000-yard mark three of the aforementioned four years. The Eagles lack of running game will force Carson Wentz to throw the ball a lot each and every week if this team is going to make any sort of playoff run. That is perfect for a high-volume receiver that you could land and slot is as a WR3/FLEX for the stretch run.Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Cardinals. We’re all scouring our waiver wires looking for the new shiny toy, but sometimes our savior is already on somebody else’s roster. Fitzgerald has been quite the fantasy producer of late, scoring four touchdowns over his past four games and going over 11 fantasy points in PPR leagues in all four of those contests. The Cardinals seemingly fall behind every game, meaning they’re going to need to throw the ball a lot to pick up big chunks of yardage. Before his Week 11 game against Oakland where he only saw four targets — two going for touchdowns — he saw eight or more targets in four consecutive games. His touchdowns make him viable in standard formats, and the amount of volume he’s receiving lately puts him firmly in play in PPR leagues, as well. The best part about all this is that Fitzgerald won’t cost you a lot.Week 12 Rankings:Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | KickerFantasy Football Trade Value: Sell highTre’Quan Smith, WR, Saints. Smith isn’t landing in this spot because he lacks talent, but his value won’t be higher than it is right now. With many leagues near the postseason, if Smith doesn’t play in Week 12 he does your team no good if you’re on the outside looking in or currently in one of the last playoff positions. Smith had the breakout game everyone has been waiting for, catching 10-of-13 targets for 157 yards and a touchdown. He’s now scored a touchdown in two of his past three games and has four over his last six contests. Smith flashed the upside he possesses, but with so many mouths to feed in New Orleans, we’ve seen this isn’t an every-week thing. Sell now, especially if you’re a fringe playoff team, because your return on Smith will never be better.Tevin Coleman, RB, Falcons. It’s not that Coleman hasn’t been productive this year, but Atlanta would rather put the ball in other players’ hands for some reason. He averaged 7.3 yards per carry against Dallas in Week 11 but he only saw eight carries. Huh? Coleman has 13 carries within the red zone this year, but Ito Smith — again, Ito Smith — has 17. What? Coleman is averaging a full yard more per carry than Smith this year and has also been more explosive in the passing game, averaging nearly 10 yards per catch while Smith is at 6.3. Coleman should be the guy, as all signs point to him on a weekly basis being that guy. The Falcons offense is just seemingly backward, and moving Coleman could be beneficial to your team. The six touchdowns he’s scored this year is definitely a selling point you could use to other owners in your league.WEEK 12 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endlast_img read more

Hurricane Irma slams the Caribbean; Florida could face ‘direct impacts’

first_imgABC News(MIAMI) — Hurricane Irma passed over the island of Barbuda during the early morning hours of Wednesday as Floridians prepared for the worst ahead of the record-breaking storm.Sustained winds on the ground in Barbuda were recorded at 108 mph, gusting to 155 mph before the anemometer, the instrument measuring the wind, broke. As of 5 a.m. ET, the monster Category 5 storm’s eye wall was butting up against St. Martin with sustained winds of 185 mph and even higher gusts.Going forward, the hurricane is forecast to move north of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands Wednesday afternoon, unleashing strong winds and heavy rain but not making a direct hit. By Sunday morning, Irma will be approaching Florida and the Keys.Preparations are already underway in Florida, which could face “direct impacts,” according to the National Hurricane Center, though it’s too soon to tell for sure. The official National Hurricane Center path shows Irma will travel straight up the middle of the state.But the latest computer models, which project possible paths for the storm, show Irma could move further to the east, threatening the Carolinas and the East Coast.Mandatory evacuations have already been ordered for Monroe County, which includes the Florida Keys. Evacuations for visitors are required beginning Wednesday morning, while residents must evacuate starting Wednesday at 7 p.m.Many residents of the Florida Keys didn’t wait until Wednesday as they headed out of the region Tuesday evening.So far, there are no other mandatory evacuations in Florida, but officials in Miami-Dade County advised residents in low-lying areas, including Miami Beach, to begin evacuating on Wednesday.Many areas of Florida have already seen gas shortages, with the hashtag #nogas popping up on social media Tuesday. Long lines formed all over the state, not just in the Miami area. Stations in the Tampa area have run out, and long lines were common at Orlando stations as well.Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Jose is following behind Irma on a similar path. Jose officially became a tropical storm on Tuesday before noon with winds of 40 mph and is expected to become a Category 2 hurricane by the end of the week. It could skirt the most northeastern Caribbean islands, but so far it is not projected to be a threat to Puerto Rico or the U.S.Editor’s note: This story has been updated to reflect that Hurricane Irma did not make landfall on Barbuda.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

Silva gives Man City win over Palace, United held (updated)

first_imgBy Toby DavisDavid Silva sparkled for Manchester City with two goals in a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace that wiped out Chelsea’s lead at the top of the table and added festive spice to the Premier League title race on Saturday.Manchester United’s pursuit of the table-toppers stalled with a 1-1 draw at Aston Villa, their first dropped points in seven games, as local rivals City came through an encounter with Palace that threatened to turn into a frustrating occasion.Silva eased an increasingly tense atmosphere at the Etihad Stadium when he broke the deadlock shortly after half-time and then put an efficient victory to bed with his second goal soon after. Yaya Toure emphatically smashed home a late third.The victory for City, who are having to cope without all their main strikers through injury, moved them level on 39 points with Chelsea, who visit Stoke City on Monday, and ignited a title battle that had looked to be a one-horse parade.Champions City trailed Chelsea by eight points in November, but have cranked into gear heading into the busy festive period, taking 22 points from a possible 24 in their last eight games.United are seven points adrift and one in front of a West Ham United side who will occupy a coveted top four spot at Christmas after a 2-0 home win over bottom club Leicester City.Southampton’s woes were forgotten as they beat Everton 3-0 after four straight league defeats, while Tottenham Hotspur kept up their pursuit of a top-four spot with a 2-1 home win against Burnley to move above Arsenal, who visit Liverpool on Sunday.Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin scored a superb hat-trick as they fought back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at home to West Bromwich Albion, but second-bottom Hull City’s troubles continued with a 1-0 home defeat by Swansea City.last_img read more
