High drama at the Midmar Mile

first_img12 February 2007There was high drama at the world’s largest open water swimming event on Sunday when the final race, for boys and men aged 14 to 30, was cancelled due to bad weather – the first time in the Midmar Mile’s 34-year history that a race has been called off.Raced over two days, with four races each day, conditions for the Midmar Mile on Saturday were scorching, with the temperatures in the mid-thirties before the discomfort index was taken into consideration. On Sunday, it was a different story altogether.It rained throughout Saturday evening and into the new day. A light sprinkling of rain fell consistently through Sunday’s first race, the girl’s 13 and under and women’s 31 and older. During event two, the boy’s and men’s equivalent, conditions were much the same.By the third race, the women’s 14 to 30 year age group, the rain became heavier and the winds rose, bringing with them a biting cold.Shocked facesThen came an announcement from race organiser Wayne Riddin that only seeded swimmers would be allowed to contest the final race. There were plenty of shocked faces as it filtered through. Shortly afterwards the decision to cancel the race entirely followed.Within minutes it became clear why Riddin pulled the plug as the winds drove from south to north across the west to east course, causing choppy and sizeable waves to form, with a whispery mist blanketing the dam.It was a disappointing conclusion to the weekend, but the primary priority for the organisers is the safety of the competitors and Riddin felt that it couldn’t be guaranteed, thus his decision, which he reckoned was easy to make given the circumstances.For defending champion Troyden Prinsloo, who had flown out from the University of Georgia to attempt to become the first male swimmer to win the Midmar Mile three years in succession, it was a terrible blow. Prinsloo said he would have swum no matter the conditions – but he’s a world class swimmer, unlike the majority of the field.Hungarian successesThe cancellation of the race also brought to an end the ambitions of the Hungarian national open water swimming team, who had enjoyed a fine day, taking victories in the boy’s and girl’s 13 and under categories, as well as in the women’s 31 to 40 age groupA number of the Hungarians, though, will get the opportunity to swim at Midmar Dam, with the holding of the 10-kilometre open water swim on Monday.Hungarian coach Tamas Vadjda validated Riddin’s decision, saying he realised “safety was the first concern”.Open women’s raceIn the open women’s event, victory went to Australia’s Melissa Gorman, who won her ticket to the Midmar Mile by clinching the Gold Coast Mile Down Under. It was a tight race.Through the first three hot spots, at 400 metres, 800 metres, and 1 200 metres, South African international Melissa Corfe led, chased by Gorman and three-time defending champion Keri-Ann Payne of Great Britain.Gorman, though, had chosen the best line into the finish and she crossed the finish line in 19 minutes and 52 seconds, well off the record of 18 minutes and 21 seconds set by Payne in 2006. However, considering the choppy conditions and a testing headwind, it was a fine effort.Corfe followed in second position in just over 20 minutes, with the defending champion relegated to third spot.The Eight-Mile ClubEfforts on behalf of charities were extremely successful. Members of the Eight-Mile Club were responsible for raising over R700 000 and that figure is one that was calculated before the final day’s events.The swimmers taking part in the Eight-Mile Club swim each and every race whilst raising funds for a wide number of charities. Fourteen-year-old Myles Brown was astonishingly successful in both the races and in raising money. In seven races, he was first across the finish line on four occasions, and he also brought in R24 000.Olympic silver medal winner and Deaflympics star Terence Parkin was rather less fortunate. He suffered a bite from a spider and gritted his way through Saturday’s four races. However, that evening he had to be rushed to hospital as a result of the bite. A substitute swimmer, Andrew Campbell, took Parkin’s place to continue raising money for the Fulton School for the Deaf.According to Riddin, this year’s entry was in the region of 16 500 swimmers, although other figures provided lift that number to anywhere from 16 700 to 17 000.

BEAUTYWIG Sexy Natural Long Straight Hair Wig Synthetic Full Wig : Five Stars

first_img Posted on March 19, 2019Author Nathalie DuboisCategories WigsTags BEAUTYWIG i love this so much The front i did not like but the rest is good. Wig did nt suit me, but colour, style and fit were perfect 😁. Beautiful wig, makes me look glam. Good wig especially for the price. It even has adjustable straps etc. I was a bit apprehensive buying a product of this nature online. I have so much faith in amazon but not sure about the seller. Nevertheless, i put my faith in amazon and have been blown away. The product was beyond my expectation. In fact, i have just ordered a second one. Though, i lack the knowledge of maintainance. In terms of it looking as gorgeous like the first day i worn it. However, it is value for money and does match exactly what was advertised. Looks wonderful on, however once it’s tangled there is no detangling. Very sad because you can only wear it once. I dont have to bother doing my own hair everyday now as i have this. Its light, very realistic and i love the color . So beautiful, much longer than i expected. My mothers even complimented on the look and texture of the wig. Absolutely brillianti just brought one for my mother. It’s really nice and you can also straighten if wanted i don’t recommend ghds as they are very hot but any other product will be fine all together i liked it good purchase. Longer then what i expected. The wig is good quality for its price and for a synthetic wig. The hair is soft, it doesn’t have that plastic synthetic feel. The wig looks exactly like it is in the pic. I bought this for a halloween party. Really is beautiful and great quality and great value for money. The top of the hair is literally jet black where as i was expected more of a natural black. I would have gave it 5 stars but the ombre i would have preferred it came higher as i had to cut some off as it was too long for my preference. Received my hair sooner than expected and i absolutely love it , everyone at my work didn’t recognize me at all , i also went camping with it 2 days ago looks great still. As good as you will get for a wig for 19. Purchased this from amazon prime so got it within a day. I fancied a change to lighten my complexion as it’s summertime. Only down side is that it sheds quiet a lot tangles at the ends. You do get a cap with it which is good. Wow, am so much in love with it. Going to order some for my two sister.

Air strike killed more than 250 terrorists, says Amit Shah

first_imgThe Indian authorities may not have put out any figure of likely casualties in the Balakot air strikes but BJP president has claimed that “250 terrorists were killed” in the Indian Air Force operation. “After the Pulwama attack, when everyone thought surgical strike can’t be done this time… now what will happen?… At that time Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led central government undertook an air strike on the 13th day and killed more than 250 terrorists without any harm to our side,” the ruling party chief reportedly said in what appears to be the first statement from the ruling party regarding casualties. Mr. Shah made the claim while addressing a function of Jain International Trade Organisation (JITO) in Ahmedabad on Sunday late evening. Mr. Shah also slammed opposition parties for raising doubts on any damage or actual casualties that may have been inflicted by the India’s air mission on the neighbouring country. “Opposition party leaders should remain shut if they cannot appreciate Prime Minister Narendra Modi for first conducting surgical strike on Pakistan in 2016 and now conducting air strike on Pakistan.” He added that statements made by several leaders of the opposition parties questioning the success of air strike has “brought smile on the face of Pakistan people.” “Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made the country understand what zero tolerance for terror meant by ordering the surgical strike and air strike on Pakistan,” he said. The air strike, described by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) as a pre-emptive non-military action against Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM)’s camps in Balakot, was conducted in the early hours of February 26.The authorities including the External Affairs Ministry and the Air Force have repeatedly stressed that “targets were successfully hit” while refusing to share details regarding casualties. Following the air strike, Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale had told the press in a statement that “a large number of JeM terrorists, trainers, senior commanders and groups of jihadis who were being trained for fidayeen action were eliminated.”last_img read more
