Canadian premier Justin Trudeau’s wife recovers from coronavirus

first_imgSophie Gregoire-Trudeau, the wife of Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, has recovered from the novel coronavirus, she said Saturday.”I am feeling so much better and have received the all clear from my physician and Ottawa Public Health,” she wrote on her Facebook page.”From the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you to everyone who reached out to me with their well wishes.” She had tested positive for the virus on March 12 after returning from Britain, with her husband subsequently going into self-quarantine as a precautionary measure.He has since been giving daily press briefings from the porch of his residence. “I strongly believe that science AND compassion will get us through this crisis,” Gregoire-Trudeau said.”That means listening and following the health protocols and staying at home for the time being.”Earlier Saturday Trudeau told reporters he intended to remain with his family at his residence even though his 14-day isolation period had ended.”We are continuing to follow the advice of health experts. And as everyone should do, we must try to stay at home, to isolate ourselves as much as possible, not to go out if not absolutely necessary,” he said.Topics :last_img read more

Newcastle reach Cisse agreement

first_img Newcastle are yet to confirm the development, but sources close to the player have revealed he is expected to resume training with his team-mates on Friday. The news will come as a major boost to manager Alan Pardew, who was already looking to recruit two strikers this summer before the Cisse problem emerged. It coincided with speculation that Russian clubs Anzhi Makhachkala and Rubin Kazan were ready to make lucrative offers in a bid to lure Cisse to eastern Europe. Cisse arrived at St James’ Park in a £9million switch from German side Freiburg in January last year and was an instant hit as he scored 13 goals in his first 14 appearances, many of them spectacular. However, the going was a little tougher last season and he was only able to manage the same number for the entire campaign as the Magpies, who lost his strike partner Demba Ba to Chelsea during the winter transfer window, found themselves fighting for Barclays Premier League survival. The club has been linked for much of the summer with Aston Villa’s out-of-favour England striker Darren Bent, and more recently with Lyon’s Bafetimbi Gomis. However to date, there has been no tangible progress with new director of football Joe Kinnear yet to make a breakthrough despite a series of bullish statements since his arrival.

Panday believes prolonged Covid-19 lockdown could affect athletes form

first_img-Insurance mogul says world of business, sports sharing similar painsBy Clifton RossDIRECTOR of P&P Insurance Brokers, one of Guyana’s major corporate sponsors of sports, Vikash Panday, said he’s doing his part in the fight against covid-19, adding that he hopes the local athletes are doing their part in staying fit and safe.A long-serving contributor to the local sports fraternity, P&P Insurance has been doing its part annually with regards to throwing financial aid behind the sport of cricket, football, pistol/rifle shooting, horse racing and others.Panday, a former national youth table tennis player, said he was aware of the downside of the lockdown, which now sees athletes globally having to train and practice from home or with specified contact with others.With no outdoor action, Panday believes that technology could be the wrench in the wheel, as athletes need to train and play more than being housed in.“In my opinion, sports is not as heavily pushed as it was in my day. There’s too much electronic stuff and activities for these kids to get involved in apart from sport, so I think with this Covid-19, things will get from bad to worse because the kids need to play sports”. Said Panday.The young entrepreneur told Chronicle Sport, yesterday, that the current state of things due to the covid-19 outbreak, which has forced the country into quarantine, has both a negative and positive effect on sponsors and the sports industry alike.“In terms of how Covid-19 has affected me businesswise, the hours are reduced, I have to take extra care with staff, with myself and family, while limiting interactions with the public”.“Business has slowed down all over, the economy has slowed down globally. In terms of sports, anyone who is an avid sportsman will not be able to train unless you have adequate indoor facilities, so you still have to keep fit, keep active and keep sharp”. Panday added.He further explained that the current situation has also curtailed a number of developmental plans for both his business and the various sports beats he is currently working along with regards to sponsorship and activities.Also, in wake of public acts of benevolence by a number of individuals as well as business entities and companies who continue to aid in combating the pandemic, Panday said he has done a few acts of good charity to date and will continue to provide help as Guyanese seek to defeat the deadly virus.last_img read more

Block’s interesting story continues to grow

first_imgDanny Block stands atop the winner\’s podium after placing first in the discus at the 2012 Big Ten Outdoor Track Championships.[/media-credit]Goofy, funny, smiley, motivated, competitive: all words a fellow teammate and coach chose to describe All-American shot putter Danny Block.Block, a junior on the Wisconsin track and field team, was recently named a First-Team All-American after his 20.00 meter throw at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships in Fayetteville, Ark. Along with this, he broke both his personal and UW records.“Definitely throwing 20 meters at Nationals was the biggest moment of my career,” Block said. “I finally caught the throw I’ve been looking for five or six years.”The list of Block’s accomplishments doesn’t end there. His notables include school record holder in the shot put, school record holder in the discus, 2013 Big Ten champion in the shot put, 2013 First-Team All-American in the shot put, 2012 Big Ten champion in the discus, 2012 Second-Team All-American in the discus and 2012 NCAA West Preliminary Round qualifier in the shot put and discus – and those are only from the past two years.“He’s into collecting All-American awards now and that’s something that’s driving him,” throwing coach Dave Astrauskas said. “You put him in a meet with other quality throwers who are near him and better than him, that’s where he usually shines.”He also believes Block’s competitive nature comes from a little sibling rivalry that he’s been able to experience first-hand. When Block was around 14 or 15 years old, Astrauskas coached his older brother and had the opportunity to get to know the Block family – Danny included. In turn, Astrauskas was able to watch him grow up alongside his brothers.“I know him wanting to surpass those marks and do better than [his brothers] is one of the things that’s driving him now,” Astrauskas said.Astrauskas and his relationship with Block is what ultimately led him to his Division 1 career at UW. After high school, Block’s 18-year-old self established that attending an SEC school far from home would be the right decision for him. Thus, he found himself at the University of Kentucky.“I thought that was what you were supposed to do: go to an SEC school, go to warm weather,” Block said.To his dismay, the distance left him homesick and, with the help of Astrauskas, he found himself with a closer option: the University of Wisconsin.“I was kind of like an orphan for a little bit. I was looking for a school and [Coach Astrauskas] kind of helped me through the process. And I decided to come here,” Block said.His decision proved to be beneficial as his awards from his 2012 and 2013 seasons have boasted his efforts.At the start of his UW career back in 2011, Block first competed in the shot put at the Red and White Open in mid-February with a toss of 16.41 meters, winning the event. Exactly one year later, competing in the same meet, he won the event with a toss of 18.79 meters. At the same meet this season, he tossed 19.34 meters – displaying a consistent improvement in his past three seasons.“I grew up a lot,” Block said. “I got stronger and I try to relax a little more and just have fun with it rather than make it a job.”His calm attitude is what sophomore teammate Scott Erickson thinks helps him in his success.“He’s never too serious about something,” Erickson said. “He’s learned to channel his emotions in a positive way by telling jokes and being himself instead of getting frustrated.”Block also said his ability to help out his fellow teammates pushes him to be his best. Fellow throwing teammate Erickson said working alongside Block has played a big part in his own success.“[Danny’s] the guy that doesn’t have the greatest strength, but he can still throw as far as the guys that can bench press 500 pounds. Most I’ve ever seen him put on a bar is 270,” Erickson said. “It helps point out to me that it’s more technique-oriented than where your mind is.”Likewise, Block believes he wouldn’t be as successful as he is without his teammates.“They all have an effect on me in a certain way. I wouldn’t get rid of one person,” Block said.Block said the teammate that has had the largest effect on him has been sophomore Alex Thompson. He said Thompson’s technical knowledge has helped him become the All-American he is today.When Block is done collecting hardware at UW, he hopes to keep throwing professionally for some time and would like to coach at a high school or collegiate level.“I know competing after college is one of his goals and in order to do that he’s going to have to work hard,” Astrauskas said.last_img read more
