Dembélé completely breaks the right thigh tendon and practically says goodbye to the season

first_imgPhoto: Reuters The forward relapsed when he already glimpsed the return to the groundsThis is a setback for Setién, because it was going to be a winter reinforcement The Barcelona player Ousmane Dembélé suffers a “complete rupture” of the tendon in the right thigh and, waiting to know what treatment he will have to continue, will remain low even though he was close to overcoming a previous injury in the same area. A fact that is not coming well, because the player says practically goodbye to everything that remains of the season.center_img “The tests performed this morning to Ousmane Dembélé have shown that the player has a complete rupture of the proximal tendon of the biceps femoris of the right thigh,” said the Blaugrana club.Of course, at the moment there is no approximate withdrawal time since it remains to be seen what treatment the French should do, although he may not play again in the remainder of the season.“In the next few hours it will be determined which treatment will continue for recovery,” Barça explained, but the Frenchman already suffered this injury in 2017, in the left thigh, and was three and a half months out of the team.Dembélé, with a right thigh biceps injury suffered at the end of November 2019 that had to be about ten weeks off, was close to being discharged after several workouts with the group, but was injured on Monday again.It was expected of him that it was the winter reinforcement that has not arrived in the offensive zone of the team, since this was confirmed by his coach, Quique Setién, recently in his last appearances before the media.The French end, which accumulates several muscle injuries this season, three of them in the thigh, has played only nine games so far this season, five in LaLiga and four in the Champions League, with a goal in the domestic championship.last_img read more

Ducks show off versatility in victory

first_imgANAHEIM – The Ducks have shown this season that they can play the beautiful game, skating and passing and shooting in remarkable sequences that lead to highlight-reel goals. But they also can play the game in a back alley if the need arises. Both styles of play were on display during a rock ’em, sock ’em 4-2 victory Sunday night over the Vancouver Canucks in front of an announced sellout crowd of 17,174 at the Honda Center. Teemu Selanne scored his 40th and 41st goals for the Ducks, becoming the first player in NHL history 35 or older to record 40 goals or more in back-to-back seasons. “That doesn’t make me feel very good,” Selanne, 36, said in mock anguish. Andy McDonald also scored two goals and added an assist as the Pacific Division-leading Ducks maintained their 10-point lead over Dallas and San Jose. Selanne and McDonald each added an assist, and Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 24 saves in the Ducks’ fifth consecutive victory. Playoff scenarios are too numerous to list here, but the bottom line is that if the Ducks (42-17-11) maintain their stranglehold on the Pacific they’ll secure home-ice advantage for at least the first two rounds of the postseason. Alex Burrows and Brent Sopel scored for Northwest Division-leading Vancouver, which fell to 24-5-4 since Christmas. “I thought it was a big game for both teams,” Selanne said. “It was almost like a playoff game. The intensity was there. It was a great effort. Everybody did their jobs.” Dustin Penner, the Ducks’ 6-foot-4, 245-pound rookie right wing, set the tone for the physical play by slamming Vancouver’s Tommi Santala into the boards about five minutes into the game. Canucks defenseman Kevin Bieksa jumped Penner at center ice and they traded blows in a brief fight that was a mere warmup for what was to follow. Shawn Thornton of the Ducks fought Jeff Cowan a few minutes later and Joe DiPenta, perhaps unwisely, got into a one-sided scrap won by Cowan. As the game progressed, Penner seemed to be in the middle of every after-the-whistle scrum as the Canucks tried again and again to exact some form of revenge. Vancouver’s Matt Cooke got in the best shot (read: cheapest), cracking a prone Penner in the head with his stick after a pileup in front of the Canucks’ net. “I got Santala pretty good,” Penner would later say of his first-period hit. “I knew it (a payback) was going to be coming.” Bieksa couldn’t understand why Penner wasn’t penalized. “I think it was a pretty dirty hit,” Bieksa said. “Pretty cheap. It’s pretty hard to miss that call. It kind of set the tone for the refereeing, that’s for sure.” Penner and Bieksa sat out the first 10 minutes of the final period, picking up misconducts after wrestling each other to the ice after the second-period horn. Leading by 3-2 to start the third, the Ducks put the game away thanks to Selanne’s sleight of hand during a power play at 6:04. Selanne pounced on a loose puck to the left of the Vancouver net just below the goal line. He then deftly banked it off Canucks defenseman Lukas Krajicek’s chest and into the back of the net for a 4-2 lead. elliott.teaford@dailybreeze.com (310) 540-4201 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Teen learns people care

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake “It feels really good that so many people care about how I’m doing and care about my future. Before, I didn’t know how many people had my back,” said the El Camino High School senior. He was feeling nauseated Thursday morning and thought he couldn’t make the blood drive at Shepherd of the Valley Church, but when he saw the full parking lot, he got a surge of energy. After 1 1/2 years of being misdiagnosed, Mailes got the word in August that what afflicts him is cancer. “The driving force, especially this time of year, is it’s the season for giving, and if you can give life, what better gift is there?” said Craig Burns, who along with his wife, spearheaded efforts to help the Mailes family. “All we need is one (match), and this drive opens up so many possibilities for so many other people.” Members of the West Hills church immediately stepped in to try to find a donor for the boy they had watched grow up and to lend support to his family. His single mother, Alison Mailes, had always hesitated to ask anybody for help. “It’s the human story, knowing Alison’s story – a single mom raising three kids on her own who would never ask anyone for anything,” said Cathi Cornell, 41, who helped organize the blood drive. “That’s what we’re put here for – people helping each other. At least that’s what I hope.” The mother, overwhelmed by the outpouring of community support, said she feels she’s getting a hundredfold return on the love she’s given in her life. “It’s like God in 3-D,” she said. “It’s been easy for me to love all my life, and it’s being returned 100 times.” And when somebody so dear to a close-knit community suffers, it becomes personal, and the experience has taught all involved that life is about giving. While church members hope and pray to find a match for Mailes, the silver lining is that the testing will add more people to the national donor registry. “Even if we aren’t able to be a match for Jeff, we’ve made a commitment to be in the registry, and we may be able to help someone else,” said Rhonda Smith, 47, of West Hills after she had her blood tested. Jeff Mailes says the experience has taught him to reprioritize his life. Getting accepted into a top university used to be most important. Now he realizes nothing is more important to him than good health, family and friends. “There’s no formula for life, I’ve learned,” he said. “There’s not (just) one way you can do something.” — If you are interested in having your blood tested or in getting updates on Jeff Mailes’ condition, e-mail prayerbox@infojmailes.com.

You’re all set! Cutaneous peripheral T-cell lymphoma, subtype gamma delta. Jeff Mailes and his mom laugh as they rush to list the words in the medical name of the cancer that has compromised the 17-year-old boy’s body. The young man – who excels in his academics, athletics and social life – had too much to lose, as does everyone struck by the disease. But he can – in fact, wants – to laugh because it’s that same disease that revealed the love and community in his life. There is no bone marrow match for Mailes in the national registry of 5.5 million willing donors, so more than 230 friends from church and school showed up last week to be tested for a possible donor.last_img read more

Kelly’s Centra giving customers a boost as N56 roadworks near end

first_imgThe team at Kelly’s Centra Mountain are seeing the positive side to new measures which show that the N56 Coolboy Kilmacrennan Road Scheme is nearing completion.The final surface course on the major roadworks scheme is being laid out over the next 9 days.This latest progress has been much-welcomed by the team at Kelly’s Centra, who have customer concerns to the fore. Mairtin Kelly, owner of the complex, said: “We are happy to see that disruption will be minimal and the main road will not be closed at all. Small local closures will be placed for up to 2 hours at a time with signed diversions. These brighter evenings will make it easier for road users to follow the new routes.”Mr Kelly has taken great interest in the roadworks over the past year. From talking to customers and hearing their concerns, he took it upon himself to speak with leading figures in the project this week.He was happy to report that the next phase of works will not see the N56 closed at any times. While local roads will have temporary diversions, this will be at limited times and only during working hours.“It was reassuring to hear that traffic is flowing as normal today, due to temperatures being too low for road resurfacing,” Mr Kelly said. “Our team and our customers are excited about the route being completed, when we will all make positive savings on our journey times between Mountain Top and Kilmacrennan.”The team at Kelly’s have stepped up on their award-winning services to ensure that customer experiences are quick and smooth at a time when road users faced travel disruption outside.“Here at Kelly’s Centra, we wanted to make sure customers can get home as quickly and safely as possible, so over the last while we’ve increased staff levels up to 20% on to accommodate getting people served and on the road again,” Mr Kelly said.“We’re conscious that the roadworks are on from 9am to 5pm, so we made Kelly’s a great place to stop by if someone wants to get a coffee or food on their journey.“We’re always thinking about ways for customers to save precious time and our self-serve hot food counter has proven very popular. The new hot food counter is fully-stocked right up to 11pm at night, and we replenished the food regularly, so it’s a great time saver for people who can get fresh dinners on their way home.” Kelly’s Centra Mountain TopHowever, from customer conversations, Mr Kelly said he has become aware of issues stemming from drivers taking back roads to avoid the works.“Some people using back roads have indicated that the potholes have damaged their tyres and alloys. Our forecourt attendants are here to help with that, while it’s good to see most people are now using the main road because of this information,” he said.Mr Kelly commended the work of contractors on the €19m roadwork project, which is expected to be completed by Easter 2019.He said: “There is great work being done by road construction crews to minimise delays.” To celebrate the fact that the end is in sight for the roadworks, Kelly’s Centra are launching a special Easter Egg offer this Thursday and Friday April 4-5th.

Praise for rugby academy programme

first_img24 October 2013 Nine Academy players represented the Eastern Province under-19s this year which, after winning the Absa under-19 B competition, secured promotion to the A- division in 2014 after defeating Border in a promotion/relegation playoff. ‘A significant role’“There can be no doubt that the Kings Academy has played a significant role in the identification, development and retention of young up-and-coming players from the region,” said Crous. “The support and commitment from Saru, through their partnership with the Academy, has played an integral part in the successes achieved.” ChampionsIn their respective finals the EP under-21s – unbeaten in the league phase and knock-outs in 2013 – beat their Boland counterparts 59-19, while the EP under-19s defeated the Valke 56-40 in a high-scoring final. ‘A massive improvement’“The biggest positive impact the Academy made in the Boland, was the good performances by our under-19 and under-21 teams in their provincial competitions, with both qualifying for the playoff rounds and showing a massive improvement from 2012,” said Smal. “The performances of these teams this season is testament of the commitment and hard work that was done in those provinces, which are crucial in our identification and development of talented young players,” Saru CEO Jurie Roux said in a statement. “We’ve not only given them opportunities to play, but because our Academy is situated on the George campus of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, the players also got the opportunity to study.” The CEO of Eastern Province Rugby, Charl Crous, said 19 of the 30 players currently enrolled at the Academy had played for the province’s under-U21 team, which narrowly missed out on being promoted to A-division after losing to Border in a playoff. SAinfo reporter and SA Rugby “We’re planning to increase this in the coming years as we aim to roll out the Saru Academy programme across all 14 provincial unions. We could already see in 2013 what a difference it made helping these players by improving the quality of their facilities and coaching, while we also focus on things like conditioning, injury treatment and rehabilitation, mentoring, nutrition, tertiary studies, life skills and good accommodation. Aim“Our aim is to ultimately help create a fully professional rugby player. In the long term, we’re aiming to produce 70 professional black players in the next four years, of which 25 will hopefully go on to play in Vodacom Super Rugby in five years’ time and by 2019, we’d like to see eight new black Springboks emerge from the Academy programme.” R18-million investedMervin Green, Saru’s general manager for development, said a total of R18-million was invested in equal portions across the four Academies this year. He also lauded Saru’s High Performance Mobi-Unit for the key role they played in ensuring the Academies had a good start in 2013.center_img “It was great to see so many players come through and gain valuable experience on the playing field,” said Prinsloo. South Western Districts CEO Johan Prinsloo lauded the programme and said 19 Academy players featured for the Eagles at under-19, under-21, Vodacom Cup and Absa Currie Cup level this year. The Academies are funded by the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund and are located in areas that traditionally have high numbers of black players. During the 2013, season, five out of the eight positions in the knock-out phases of the Absa Currie Cup under-21 B and under-19 B competitions were filled by teams featuring players from Saru’s Academy Programme. Eastern Province won the Absa under-21 B and under-19 B divisions after winning their finals in Nelspruit. Rassie Erasmus, Saru General Manager for High Performance, said: “The feedback we’ve received on the involvement of the Mobi-Unit has been very good. We worked with all four Academies at least twice this year and were very well received. It was also good to interact with the coaches there.” In the U19 B division, Boland and South Western Districts made it to the semi- finals before being eliminated from the competition. “Out of our group of 30 Academy players, a total of 28 played for our junior teams, while Ashley Esau played one Vodacom Cup match for the senior team and a couple of players also trained with our senior Absa Currie Cup team.” Willie Smal, the CEO of Boland, said the Saru Academy allowed his union to retain a lot of the young talent in the province and made a massive difference in Boland’s junior teams’ results this year. “It was superb to see how the Academies and the provinces co-operated this year, and I believe that is one of the many reasons why they were so successful. I’m confident we’ll see the positive effect at a higher level in the next couple of seasons.” “Our return on investment in the first year was massive and we really got off to a very positive start this year,” said Green. The South African Rugby Union (Saru) on Thursday declared the first season of operation of its four Saru Rugby Academies – established last year in Border, Eastern Province, South Western Districts and Boland – a success.last_img read more
