Julius Arile: from warrior to elite athlete

first_imgKenyan runners often recount how the sport helped them escape poverty. For one athlete, the marathon saved him from a life of crime and the prospect of an early, violent death.In a country with so much marathon talent, Julius Arile is not a front-runner but he stands out for another reason. He grew up in Kenya’s North, where cattle are a symbol of wealth and a source of often deadly tribal fighting. Arile was a cattle thief and warrior.2004 was a turning point in Arile’s life he took part in a race organised by former kenyan marathoner Tegla Loroupe, aimed at bringing peace among warring communities in the region, this was Arile’s first contact with athletics and he never looked back. He went professional and in 2013 set his personal best time- 2hrs 10mins and three seconds, in New York city.The 31 year old now campaigns for peace. He has encouraged more former rustlers from his home into the sport. Not everyone though can make it as a professional.  Arile says building a school and stadium here is his dream. But for now he’s aiming for a ticket to South America for the Olympics in Rio in 2016.last_img read more

Lambert hails goalscorer Cole

first_img The former England midfielder tired in the second half and was substituted in the 67th minute, with Burnley levelling 20 minutes later through Danny Ings’ penalty. Cole, 33, had only featured three times for Villa before Saturday’s match having had to bide his time following injury problems. Lambert, who did not take any questions on his departed assistant manager Roy Keane, said: “The movement was great and I wish I’d had Joe Cole five years earlier, but the problem is I couldn’t afford him five years ago. “He was fantastic, he really was. I knew he would tire but I thought he was outstanding. The great thing about Joe is his enthusiasm for the game, for a guy that’s won everything. I think the other guys can take a look at him and try to model themselves on him, that’s for sure.” Dean Marney twice saved Burnley early on with blocks from corners while Agbonlahor missed a golden chance when Cole played him through on goal. Burnley had chances, too, but the game looked to be petering out until Jores Okore felled Lukas Jutkiewicz in the box and Ings smashed in the penalty. That prompted a late onslaught from the Clarets, with Ings hitting the post and Jutkiewicz also missing a great chance. “That was a game that got away from us,” said Lambert. Cole made his first Premier League start since signing for Villa from West Ham in the summer and it was fitting that he scored the goal in the 38th minute that put the visitors ahead. It was no more than they deserved, with Cole at the heart of fluid movement involving Gabriel Agbonlahor, Tom Cleverley and Andreas Weimann that should have brought more reward. Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert praised Joe Cole’s performance but rued the one that got away as Burnley fought back to claim a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor. “It’s the best we’ve played in a few weeks. I thought we should have been two or three up at half-time and some of the football we played was outstanding. “When they scored the penalty, it put us on the back foot for the last few minutes and we could have lost it, which would have been an absolute travesty. “For most of that game I was happy with how we played but the goal we lost was poor.” The away fans gave strong support to their team but Ings’ penalty led to loud calls for Lambert’s head after a ninth game without a victory left them two points above the relegation zone. The Scot said: “They pay their money and I’ve got absolutely no problem with that. The expectancy levels at this club are huge and, when we’re not matching those levels, that’s normal. “I do the best I possibly can. It’s up to us to find a solution to get this club up there. You have to dust yourself off and go again.” Burnley had been targeting a third successive top-flight win for the first time in nearly 40 years and manager Sean Dyche again hailed the character shown by his side. He said: “In the end, with the chances we created, you’re scratching your head how we didn’t win it but, on the balance of the game without the last seven or eight minutes, it was really close. “They’re certainly not a team that are broken, I’m sure of that. There’s plenty of energy about them, there’s a belief and there’s some good players there. “We recognised that and I thought they came on really strong first half. That was not a surprise to us, we said that to the players. “Ian Holloway last year said we had a strong chin. It’s harder to do that in this division, because you can get punished, but that was on show again today. “The mentality of the players, the energy, the quality – the mix was right, particularly in the last 10 or 15 minutes. “It’s a great sign of where we’re going and what we’re hoping to achieve when we come away disappointed at not beating Aston Villa after being 1-0 down.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Connacht capitalise on Davies off day to climb to second in Guinness PRO12 table

first_img The result leaves the Ospreys with just one win from their opening five fixtures – even though they had Wales World Cup forwards Tipuric, Paul James, Aaron Jarvis and James King in their matchday squad, along with Eli Walker. However, Wales front-line regulars Dan Biggar, Scott Baldwin and Alun Wyn Jones were absent. In-form Connacht made five changes from their win over Zebre with Carty, Darragh Leader, Shane Delahunt, Aly Muldowney and Eoghan Masterson all coming into the team. Connacht had much the best of the first half to lead 11-8 at the break – but Ospreys struck first blood with Davies kicking a penalty on three minutes. Carty missed a seventh minute penalty but after a fine break from scrum-half Kieran Marmion the fly-half was able to put over an easier attempt from in front of the posts. The visitors lost captain and full-back Tiernan O’Halloran after hurting himself in a mid-air collision with Richard Fussell and two minutes later Ospreys were in front with a try for Baker created with a dart up the left by Walker and good link work from full-back Fussell. A combined attack from Marmion and Aki forced Josh Matavesi into a cynical piece of ball-killing by his posts which earned him a yellow card. It also allowed Carty to kick his second penalty. And, down to 14 men Ospreys, conceded a try when wing Healy went over on the left exploiting space from the blindside of a scrum courtesy of Marmion. Davies had a penalty chance to draw the points level at the break but his long-range effort fell short. Press Association The second half saw a change of referee with Welshman Sean Brickell replacing Irishman Andrew Brace. After only four minutes of the restart Connacht stretched their lead to 10 points with a try for the lively Aki after good work by his co-centre Craig Ronaldson, who also converted. Ospreys brought on Tipuric and James, making his first appearance for the region for three seasons, and the double change had an effect as Davies kicked a 49th minute penalty. But Davies was not having his best day with the boot, missing a penalty in the 65th minute. However, with 11 minutes remaining Tipuric was over for the Ospreys’ second try after good work by Davies, Scott Otten and Dan Evans – but Connacht still led 18-16 after Davies failed with the conversion, meaning the home fly-half had missed three penalties and two conversions – a total of 13 points. Two minutes from time Ronaldson kicked a penalty to extend Connacht’s advantage to five points and complete the scoring. Man of the match Bundee Aki and wing Matt Healy scored a try apiece with Jack Carty and Craig Ronaldson combining to supply 11 points with the boot. The Ospreys, who had to settle for a losing bonus point, also scored two tries through number eight Dan Baker and replacement flanker Justin Tipuric but crucially fly-half Sam Davies could only kick six out of a possible 19 points on offer. Connacht climbed to second in the Guinness PRO12 table, level on points with leader Scarlets, after condemning Ospreys to their fourth defeat of the season at the Liberty Stadium. last_img read more

Syracuse defense stifles BU in 5-1 win

first_img Published on September 27, 2015 at 6:32 pm Contact Liam: Facebook Twitter Google+ Boston University’s Amanda Cassera watched a pass loft high over the heads of every Syracuse defender, scooped it up and bolted toward the net. Jess Jecko knew she had a clear path and called to midfielder Alyssa Manley over to help.Manley shot toward the streaking BU forward, reached out with her stick and poked away the ball before Cassera even entered the circle. Possession changed hands with 30:10 remaining in the first half, Syracuse moved back up the field and Jecko didn’t even need to move.“That was beautiful,” Jecko said. “… When they make a play like that, I just get to relax and breathe because if (Cassera) comes in, it would’ve been a one-v-one and it’s anyone’s play there.”Jecko didn’t see much action in net Sunday as No. 2 Syracuse (9-0, 3-0 Atlantic Coast) defeated No. 17 Boston University (6-3, 2-0 Patriot), 5-1, at J.S. Coyne Stadium behind an impressive defensive effort in which the Terriers were limited to seven shots – four on goal – and one penalty corner. But when BU did push up the field offensively, the defense made plays by reshaping its back line, relying on offensive possession, and sinking midfielders into the defensive zone.Roos Weers, Lies Lagerweij and Zoe Wilson formed the back line of the defense that only allowed BU two shots in the first half and was practically impenetrable.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textA few minutes after Cassera had her chance poked away by Manley, BU’s Grace Boston also slipped behind the SU defense. Weers recovered, slid over to her right to catch her and knocked the ball out of bounds to neutralize the potential scoring threat.“We kept really good counter structure to be able to help limit them,” head coach Ange Bradley said. “They did have some really good chances in the first half.”Coming out of halftime, the Terriers failed to hold possession in their own offensive quarter until nearly ten minutes expired.Down 3-0 and with just over 20 minutes remaining in play, BU head coach Sally Starr called a timeout. She gestured down the field with her arms, imploring her players to push forward.Out of the timeout, the Terriers pushed down the field by working the ball around the back and then up the field. The pressure was on for what felt like the first time, Lagerweij said, but the defense held up time and again.“I think there were only two shots on goal and that’s all due to the defense,” Jecko said. “Stepping up, intercepting, outletting the ball well and making smart plays – there’s nothing that they didn’t do well today.”BU’s Sofi Laurito charged into the teeth of the defense four times throughout the second half, but despite consistently finding the circle, the Orange held her to one shot by collapsing midfielders and reshaping the backs.SU did slip up once rotating, allowing the Terriers to score with four minutes left, spoiling what would’ve been Jecko’s fourth shutout of the season.It was the only blemish for Syracuse on a game that was almost seamless throughout.“Our keeper deserved a shutout. The defense deserved the shutout tonight,” Lagerweij said. “It’s annoying to have that unnecessary goal ruin what was one of our best performances defensively.” Commentslast_img read more
