Usain Bolt stars in own documentary ‘I Am Bolt’

first_imgShanghai officials reveal novel coronavirus transmission modes MOST READ Senators to proceed with review of VFA EDITORS’ PICK Jamaica’s Usain Bolt wins the men’s 100-meter final during the athletics competitions of the 2016 Summer Olympics at the Olympic stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Sunday, Aug. 14, 2016. APKINGSTON, Jamaica — Usain Bolt is now a movie star. He refuses to say he’s an actor.Such a distinction is important for the Jamaican sprinting great and nine-time Olympic champion. Until his competitive career ends next year, Bolt will continue playing only one role — that of the world’s fastest man, someone who beat the odds to acquire immense fame and fortune on his way to becoming one of the biggest stars in global sport.ADVERTISEMENT There are also some moments where that megawatt smile isn’t present. Yes, even Usain Bolt can have a tough day.“You have to ask yourself, why am I doing this? I’ve done everything. I’ve done it many times,” Bolt said. “I have nothing else to prove.”Not now, he doesn’t.The triple-triple was the capper to a storied Olympic career. He’s the world-record-holder in the 100- and 200-meter dashes, and anchored the fastest 4×100-meter relay in world history as well. But without those three golds from Rio de Janeiro, Bolt would have felt somewhat unfulfilled.“I wanted to be one of the greatest,” Bolt said. “I wanted to be among the greats. Without this Olympics, I would be great, yes. But I don’t think I would be in the bracket of Muhammad Ali, Pele and the great footballers. That’s what I want.”Bolt’s plan is for the world championships next year in London to be his final meet.From there, who knows.He’s already well set-up as a businessman, with endorsement deals around the globe and other investments — such as a restaurant not far from Jamaica’s National Stadium in Kingston, an eatery where a two-lane track is stenciled on the floor around the bar. He’ll consider dabbling with other sports, and he has a clear desire to play soccer. He might coach. He will not be a politician.And he’s already been approached about acting. For the record, Bolt says the actor who could play him best is Denzel Washington, and he counts “2 Guns” as one of his favorite movies.“People always say it was ‘Training Day,’” Bolt said. “But I loved ‘2 Guns’ because it was different.” We are young Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

I love the pressure. And I have all the confidence in myself and my coach and the team I have that it would come true for me. The pressure was there, but the confidence was always there — which made it much easier.”Bolt agreed to make this film after realizing that he would be able to convince both his fans and his detractors that what they see on the track — a free-spirited showman who tries to be stoic and serious only when absolutely necessary — is what they would get if they tagged along with him on a typical day.He shows off some of the spoils of his life, whether it’s the party scene or traveling or enjoying luxury. He also shows how all that is possible, with 5:30 a.m. workouts that he groaned through and the rigors of what’s needed to keep an elite athlete in top physical condition.“I live a simple life, you know what I mean?” Bolt said. “One of the things that made me really want to do this was people always saying: ‘Aw, this is not really who he is. He’s not always laughing. It’s not always fun for him.’ This is who I am. I really wanted to show people this is who I am. I like to have fun. I like to chill. I like to go out. That’s just a part of me. The part that people don’t see, that’s the part I want to show people behind the scenes, the hard work.”ADVERTISEMENT As fate of VFA hangs, PH and US forces take to the skies for exercise He wanted this movie to be different as well.“I tried to talk about what I’m feeling, what I’m thinking,” Bolt said. “That’s what I really try to portray. I never try to be unoriginal.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next PH among economies most vulnerable to virus As such, it’s not a made-for-Hollywood version of himself that takes center stage in the documentary “I Am Bolt,” which is being released Monday. As the title wants viewers to believe, the Bolt who is in the film is the very same one that his friends, family and other members of his close-knit inner sanctum have seen for as long as they’ve known him.“I wasn’t an actor,” Bolt said. “I wasn’t trying to push a different person forward.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra teammates show love for SlaughterSPORTSWe are youngSPORTSFreddie Roach: Manny Pacquiao is my Muhammad AliThis is Bolt, a behind-the-scenes view of the superstar that took about two years to make and has him holding the camera at times.

Powell among DMG athletes looking for strong performances in Europe

first_img Powell, who has the most sub-10 100m runs in the history of  track and field, is looking to add another to the list in Zurich.    “I don’t necessarily think about winning, I think about doing my best. For me, that means running the best time I can and hopefully that is a sub-10 time and having a good time while doing it,” Powell chuckled. On her part, Morris is looking forward to jumping in Switzerland’s largest railway Station Hauptbahnhof in Zurich. She will vault alongside Alysha Newman in the busy railway station as it provides an exhilarating backdrop for a pole vault event. Lawson grabbed gold in the men’s long jump while Crouser and Norwood placed second in the men’s shot put and men’s 400m respectively. Allen, Hughes, and Okolo scored bronze in the men’s 110m hurdles, men’s 100m, and women’s 400m respectively. Lawson, Crouser, Allen and Okolo also took home prize money. “It’s an epic experience to compete with fans so close. You really feel their energy, hear the cheers and I’m motivated to try and jump just a little higher so they can really get excited,” Morris said. In total, DMG will field more than 20 Olympic and World class athletes heading to meets across Europe, including Shawn Barber, Nia Ali, Cleopatra Borel, Sam Kendrick joining Powell, Morris, Norwood, Lawson and Allen in Zurich. Tianna Bartoletta, Kate Grace, Lea O’Connor will join Kendrick, Barber and Allen for the Berlin World Challenge. Katie Landwehrf will compete in the Zagreb World Challenge along with Powell, Norwood, Harris, Allen, Kendrick, Okagbare and Ali. “We are proud to represent everyone on our roster— the team at DMG works hard to find talent and really enjoys helping our athletes to grow to their full potential. It takes a lot of work and dedication to compete at this level and our athletes prove that they have what it takes to achieve greatness every time they suit up,” said Paul Doyle, CEO of DMG. Though summer is winding down for many it’s just heating up for DMG athletes. Weltklasse Zurich Diamond League is the second stop on a post-2017 World Championships circuit in Europe for DMG athletes that started with the Birmingham instalment of the Diamond League series on August 20. The roster included Morris, Alysha Newman, Natasha Morrison, Blessing Okagbare, Courtney Okolo, Jarrion Lawson, Ryan Crouser, Zharnel Hughes, Devon Allen, and Vernon Norwood who competed in Birmingham with six walking away with medals.  ZURICH, Switzerland – Guinness world record holder Asafa Powell, Olympic and World silver medallist Sandi Morris, and World champion Sam Kendrick will lead a contingent of athletes represented by the Doyle Management Group (DMG) at the Zurich Diamond League on Thursday, August 23. DMG was founded by Paul Doyle in 1998 and has since gone on to become one of the most instantly recognisable names in sports management. More than 60 professional athletes call DMG home, with 44 of them having Olympic or World championship appearances, 31 major championship finalists, 19 major championship medallists, 11 World Champions, six Olympic gold medallists, and three World record holders.last_img read more

Kenya 15s start repechage on wrong footing

first_img0Shares0000Canada’s DTH van der Merwe celebrates scoring one of his three tries in the North Americans’ Rugby World Cup qualifier victory over Kenya © AFP / GERARD JULIENMARSEILLE, France, Nov 11 – Kenya national 15s team kicked off their repechage rugby World Cup campaign on a wrong footing after succumbing to a 65-19 defeat to Canada in the opening match of the round robin.The North Americans won the first of their three repechage games in Marseille, to decide the final spot at next year’s World Cup in Japan, in the ten-try romp. As well as Van der Merwe’s treble, full-back Theo Sauder and lock Brett Beukeboom both scored two tries each.Canada’s powerful pack proved too strong for the lighter Kenyans as Kingsley Jones’ side pulled away with six converted second-half tries without reply.The winner of the four-team repechage tournament — involving Canada, Kenya, plus Germany and Hong Kong, who meet later (1500 GMT), goes into Pool B at the 2019 Rugby World Cup alongside New Zealand, South Africa, Namibia and Italy.Canada will next face Germany next Saturday after Hong Kong play Kenya in the second round of matches.The Canadians held a commanding 27-12 lead at the break as South African-born Glasgow Warriors wing Van der Merwe, 32, scored two first-half tries.Fly-half Gordon McRorie, who claimed 13 points with the boot, converted two of Canada’s four tries in the opening 40 minutes as they took advantage of poor tackling.Kenya got back in contention straight after the break when lock George Nyambua crashed over for a converted try to make it 27-19.However, the Canadians quickly built a 20-point lead as No. 8 Tyler Ardron crossed, then Sauder touched down for the second of his two converted tries to make it 39-19 with 25 minutes left.A flurry of Canadian tries followed as the Kenyans tired and Van der Merwe completed his hat-trick by powering over just before the final whistle.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

De Gea stands tall to trump Ronaldo

first_img0Shares0000MADRID, Spain, February 14 – “It is your night,” ran the headline of Madrid sports daily Marca next to a giant picture of Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of the star’s first encounter with Manchester United, the club he left three and a half years ago.Ronaldo, almost inevitably, did have his moment as he soared above a stranded Patrice Evra at the back post to majestically head home his seventh Champions League goal in as many games this season.But on a pitch filled with stellar attacking talent, it was a Spanish goalkeeper making a return of his own, to his home city, who was the star of the show as the Champions League tie ended 1-1. David De Gea had only ever suffered heartbreak, as most Atletico Madrid keepers do, against Real Madrid in his time with Real’s city rivals.But just five minutes into the widely-anticipated Champions League last-16 tie he diverted Fabio Coentrao’s goalbound effort onto the post to keep United from sinking under an early Madrid storm.Once that initial burst had been weathered, it was they who found the net first as the Spanish champions’ Achilles heel for the past two seasons, defending set-pieces, was again exposed as Danny Welbeck directed Wayne Rooney’s corner into the net.Ten minutes later the moment United feared duly arrived as Ronaldo hung in the air a good three feet above his former French colleague to glance in a header so accurate even De Gea couldn’t reach it.With the tide now turned again, Madrid charged forward.Mesut Ozil, so key in Los Blancos’ revival in recent weeks, starting to find the space between the lines in which he dazzles and with one right-footed drive forced De Gea into another fine save.The hosts continued to buzz around the pitch at the start of the second period with great fervour, this time with Angel di Maria to the fore as the Argentine tested De Gea’s impeccable handling before pulling another effort just wide that would surely have had the keeper beaten.Coentrao, the man who has just one goal in his whole Real Madrid career, was then left wondering how he didn’t have two for the night as De Gea stretched out a long gangly leg to unconventionally turn away the Portuguese full-back’s back-post effort from Sami Khedira’s cross.However, despite the fuss made over United having to play 18 hours later than their hosts at the weekend, it was the visitors who will feel they should have taken an advantage back to Old Trafford in three weeks’ time after three Robin Van Persie chances in the final quarter.The Dutchman was unlucky with his first opportunity as a rasping angled right-footed shot came back off the crossbar.But there was no excuse when his second fell perfectly onto his favoured left and his weak mishit volley was retrieved just in front of his own goalline by a relieved Xabi Alonso who had allowed a long-ball to drop into Van Persie’s path.Ronaldo continued to try and make things happen as he saw an audacious free-kick drop onto the roof of De Gea’s net, but Jose Mourinho’s introduction of Gonzalo Higuain and Luka Modric for Karim Benzema and Di Maria respectively left Madrid congested in midfield and toothless up front.And so it was left to Van Persie to try and land the final punch of an enthralling first-leg in stoppage time only for Diego Lopez to turn the ball behind for a corner.Both managers were content afterwards in knowing there is still a long way to go in deciding who will progress.“It’s still 50-50 and I think it will go down to the last minute,” said Mourinho.Alex Ferguson, meanwhile, went as far as to say he thinks Madrid will score at Old Trafford.With all eight of Madrid’s defeats this season having come on the road though, United can return to Manchester confident that the hardest part of the job has been done.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Debit Cards Can Pinch Consumers

first_imgNEW YORK – Americans are increasingly reaching for their debit cards instead of their credit cards when they’re out shopping. Because using a debit card triggers an immediate withdrawal from a checking or savings account, it’s not much different from writing a check or using cash – and that can make it easier for consumers to budget. Another advantage is that consumers don’t have to worry about big credit card bills arriving at the end of the month. Meanwhile, there are risks with debit cards, experts say. Unwary consumers can trigger fees and surcharges when they use debit cards to get cash from ATMs or to make purchases at some retailers. And because debit cards don’t have the same federal protections that credit cards do, consumers may find it harder to recover money if they’re the victims of unscrupulous merchants or fraudsters. “Debit cards have seen tremendous growth because they’re so convenient to use,” said Greg McBride, senior financial analyst with Bankrate.com of North Palm Beach, Fla. “But people shouldn’t take them for granted.” PLASTIC: Experts say hidden fees and a lack of recourse can make them riskier than traditional credit cards. By Eileen Alt Powell THE ASSOCIATED PRESS For example, use a debit card to get cash from an ATM that isn’t owned by your bank, and you could get hit with a surcharge averaging $1.64, McBride said. Your own bank could add its own fee of $1.25 or more for your use of the “foreign” ATM, he added. So you’ll end up spending close to $3 for that money. Forget to keep tabs on those cash withdrawals or debit card purchases, and you could get stuck paying an over-the-limit fee on your checking account of $35 or more, McBride said. “The fact is, you can overdraw your account just as easily with a debit card as you can by writing too many checks,” McBride said. Meanwhile, some retailers tack on a fee if consumers use their debit cards with a PIN (private identification number) rather than signing for the purchase, as they would with a credit card. The bigger problem faced by debit card users is what to do when something goes wrong with a purchase, said Paul Stephens, the director of policy and advocacy for the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse in San Diego. “A very significant consumer protection is that you can stop payment if you’re not satisfied with the quality of goods or services,” Stephens pointed out. “That is a very powerful tool.” Stopping payment works with a credit card, he points out, but not with a debit card because the money for a debit-card purchase in most cases is transferred almost immediately from the consumer’s account. Then the consumer must fight to get his or her money back, he said. Along with the rising popularity of debit cards has come an increase in fraud, Stephens said. “We’ve been told of a number of instances lately of card skimming – at a major supermarket chain and at a large gas station chain,” he said. In these cases, the thieves substituted their own card-reading devices for those of the retailers, then stole the card information and began draining consumers’ accounts. There are federal protections for debit card users, but they’re not as strong as those for credit card uses. While credit card losses are capped at a maximum of $50 by federal rules, debit card users must report a loss within two days of discovery to qualify for the $50 limit; miss the deadline, and they could be out as much as $500. And if a consumer fails to report the problem within 60 days of getting a bank statement, the consumer could be ineligible for any reimbursement. The banks that issue cards – and the card associations like Visa USA and MasterCard Inc. that process them – have policies pledging the same liability limits for debit cards as for credit cards. But Stephens says this doesn’t help the consumer who is out the cash until a bank finishes investigating a fraud, which can take up to two weeks. As a result, the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse encourages consumers not to use debit cards. Stephens says that those who do want to use a plastic card to access their checking or savings accounts should ask their financial institutions to issue them an ATM card limited to that purpose. McBride of Bankrate.com argues that card issuers “have gone to great lengths” to level the protections for credit and debit cards and that consumers also can help protect themselves by carefully tracking withdrawals, either by monitoring online bank accounts or their monthly bank statements. He also says that one group of consumers – those who don’t carry a balance on their credit cards – shouldn’t bother with debit cards. “If you always pay in full, you’re better off using a credit card than a debit card,” McBride said. “The rewards are more generous than those on debit cards, and people can take full advantage of the float on their money because they wait to pay.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Southampton could turn to Juventus defender if Atletico Madrid star rejects move

first_img1 Angelo Ogbonna in action for Juventus Southampton are poised to snap up Juventus defender Angelo Ogbonna – if on loan star Toby Alderweireld opts not to stay at St Mary’s.Ronald Koeman is unsure whether Alderweireld will join the South Coast side on a permanent basis this summer and has identified the Italy star as a like-for-like replacement.Belgian Alderweireld is this week holding talks with parent club Atletico Madrid and is being chased by a host of clubs across Europe, including Tottenham and Arsenal.However, Southampton do have an option as part of last season’s loan agreement to sign the 26-year-old for a fee in the region of £6.5m.As for Ogbonna, who is also being tracked by Everton, the powerful centre-back has struggled to hold down a regular first-team position for the double winners.The 27-year-old is available for around £8m according to Sky Italia as Koeman looks to add the former Torino man to recent summer signings Cedric Soares and Juanmi.last_img read more

Leicester star Riyad Mahrez named PFA Player of the Year

first_img Riyad Mahrez has been instrumental in Leicester’s shock Premier League title push this season 1 Leicester star Riyad Mahrez has been rewarded for his fine season with the PFA Player of the Year award.Mahrez was presented with the prestigious trophy at the Grosvenor Hotel in London on Sunday after contributing 17 goals and 11 assists to the Foxes’ fairytale campaign.Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli won the PFA Young Player of the Year award.Mahrez was flown down by helicopter to the ceremony from the King Power Stadium, where Claudio Ranieri’s side had earlier thrashed Swansea 4-0 to move eight points clear at the top of the table.The Algerian playmaker held off competition from West Ham’s Dimitri Payet, Tottenham striker Harry Kane, Arsenal man Mesut Ozil and fellow Foxes stars Jamie Vardy and N’Golo Kante to win the award, but dedicated the success to his ‘brothers’ at Leicester.“All the credit is for them, seriously,” Mahrez said.“And for my manager and the staff. Without them I wouldn’t receive this award and I wouldn’t score. It’s the team spirit, and I want to dedicate it to them.“I’m very grateful to receive this award, it’s a pleasure. It’s extra special because if the players vote for me it’s because they’ve seen I’ve been great this year so I’m happy.“But it’s more team things. Without my team-mates I wouldn’t get this award.”Mahrez has been instrumental in his team’s remarkable rise and he now joins a glittering list of former winners that includes Kenny Dalglish, Dennis Bergkamp, Thierry Henry, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.Some bookmakers had Leicester at 5000/1 to be crowned champions at the start of the season, but, with three games left, they stand on the brink of arguably the greatest shock in English football history.“The secret has been team spirit,” Mahrez added.“We work so hard for each other. We are like brothers, it’s everywhere on the pitch. That’s our strength.“If sometimes we are not good, we know we are going to run and make the effort for our team-mates. That is the secret of our success.”Meanwhile, Manchester City midfielder Izzy Christiansen won the PFA Women’s Player of the Year award, Sunderland forward Beth Mead took the Women’s Young Player of the Year award and Ryan Giggs was handed the PFA Merit award.last_img read more

TG4 WANTS TO TEACH DONEGAL PEOPLE HOW TO PLAY MUSIC!
