Sky’s the limit for McLeod – Graham

first_img PROBLEMS McLeod has recently run 9.99 seconds for the 100 metres, but Graham doesn’t believe the accelerated velocity will create problems. “All he has to do is fix his leg sometimes by not hitting the hurdle,” he suggested. “Once he’s clean, we’re going to see something fantastic soon, before even Rio”, Graham said, using hurdling terminology to describe a race when the athlete isn’t slowed down by contact with any of the 10 obstacles. More broadly, the experienced coach thinks that McLeod and Parchment could both win medals in the 110-metre hurdles at the Olympics. “Once Parchment gets his start, we could see Jamaica creating history – a quinela,” he predicted. “With Omar’s early speed, once Parchment gets his start, Jamaica is in for some good times in the hurdles,” he concluded. The early-season form of Omar McLeod has one of his former high-school coaches thinking about the world record. Raymond Graham, who coached McLeod in 2013 at Kingston College (KC), says McLeod’s early speed will help chase Aries Merritt’s four-year-old 110-metre hurdles record of 12.80 seconds. Graham also believes that McLeod and Hansle Parchment could make hurdling history for Jamaica at this summer’s Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. Graham isn’t surprised by his former student’s early-season run of 13.08 seconds at the Drake Relays last weekend. “He is the first hurdler I’ve seen with so much speed, and when you have speed,” he explained, “you’re going to run fast”. The long-time coach believes McLeod was unlucky to hit the hurdles in last year’s World Championship final and said: “I think he will break the world record soon.” McLeod ran 12.97 seconds to beat Parchment, the 2012 Olympic bronze medallist, to win last year’s National Senior Championships. However, he struggled in the World Championships final where he placed sixth. Parchment peaked well at the Worlds to be runner-up to Russia’s Sergey Shubenkov. Graham isn’t the first to project world-record potential for McLeod. Just after McLeod’s Nationals wins, 1966 CAC silver medallist Ray Harvey said: “His form is immaculate, impeccable, but his speed is what really, I think, could propel him probably close to the world record.”last_img read more

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesMauricio Pochettino said he took off Heung-Min Son while he was on a hat-trick because the forward needed a rest.Son scored his second double in two games to sink Huddersfield 2-0 at Wembley and cement Tottenham’s place in the top four.“In the last few games he played a lot. He played one hour and scored twice against Rochdale on a very cold day,” the Spurs boss said.“Today he played another 70 minutes, and he’s not a machine, and he needs to rest. There are a lot of games ahead of him.“But he is one player you always expect amazing things from. He is talented, consistent and very professional.“Players like him and Harry Kane work a lot and it pays back. He’s another example at our club of what it means to be professional.”Pochettino’s side face Juventus next in a huge Champions League last-16 second leg at Wembley on Tuesday night.And he said: “I am happy for Son because these two goals help a very good position in the table now, and in the battle for the top four. It was a very professional performance from the team.“We are focused on Juventus now. With Chelsea, United still to play, cannot affect what happens in the other games.” Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebookby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksRecommended for youAspireAbove.comRemember Pauley Perrette?

Basketball player Carmelo Anthony says playing with Amar’e Stoudemire was “one of the reasons I wanted to come to New York.”Now that his Knicks teammate is struggling with another knee injury, Anthony is having a difficult time watching Stoudemire go through the agony of recovery.“As a friend, it’s hard for me to sit back and act like it doesn’t bother me because I know how hard of a worker he is [and] I know the time that he puts in the gym to train and rehab,” Anthony said Tuesday. “To see him go forward and then take some steps back every time, it’s just sad.”According to reports, Stoudemire will miss the Knicks’ first three preseason games. Stoudemire is rehabbing from knee surgery he received over the summer, his third in the past year.“I’m still getting stronger, still getting the legs strong enough to withstand the pressure of playing, but progress has been great so far,” Stoudemire said.The 11-year veteran only played 29 regular season games in 2012-13, when he also had two separate knee procedures. read more
