Road Runners soldier on in big numbers at Murray Barracks

first_imgRoad Running Port Moresby Road Runners rebounded into action after a thin turnout of 22 at the town post office on July 13, when 60 participants enjoyed cool, windy and sunny conditions at Murray Barracks on Saturday afternoon. Starting under the rain trees near the Three Mile Roundabout opposite the Barracks Oval, the impressive phalanx of runners and walkers followed the lead of their commander, Xavier Kavan, as he hurtled 1.6 kilometres along Ward’s Road to the turnaround just short of the Hohola tunnels. Shannon Ipah (11 minutes 52 seconds) whittled down the frontrunner’s lead on the return to the rain trees but it was not enough and Kavan took out the 3.2-km race in 11.34. Joshua John’s high-quality performances have been remarked on many times before, but it must be said yet again that this young boy is a real talent. He was third in 12.14 and he is only half the age of the two young men who beat him. Patricia Aitsi is a very consistent and polished performer and she brought home the big female contingent in 16.21 ahead of Gabriella Heaoa (17.56), Glenda Yuwi (17.57), Rachel McCarthy (18.16), Jerin Paul (19.20), Rose Paul (19.24), Nellie Aitsi (20.10), Vicky Sailas (23.22), Heisi Tom (32.40) and Petra Reesink (32.25). Titus “The Titan” Tobia danced the light fantastic to claim top honours in the super-veteran (50 to 59 years) category in 15.20, with special commendations going to the Engan Eagle, Paulus Opus (18.12) and the Incredible Hulks, Simon Nutley and Graeme O’Flaherty (both 28.48). The Maltese Falcon Neil Nicholls soared above the pack to claim top ranking in the extreme veteran (70 to 79 years) class with a personal best time on this course of 16.32, with Ajit Muttu runner-up in 32.40. Forty-one finishers opted to complete their assignments on getting back to the start for the first time, while 19 others decided that 3.2-km was not enough. These diehards took on the big loop along the Sir Hubert Murray Highway to the Four Mile roundabout, where they turned left into Waigani Drive, then left on the freeway, then left again into Ward’s Road before coming home for the second time for a total gallop of 7.4-km. Congratulations go to Micah Fito for his inaugural Road Runners victory. He has only appeared on the scene in the last few months and has quickly made his mark with some top five finishes in the Endurance Challenge. It wasn’t handed to him on a platter as two of the most experienced and well-credentialled runners in the city, in the form of James Gurumi (36.44) and Swans Pinampio (37.25), kept him on his toes, but Fito repelled their surges and came back to base first in 35.23. As the Pacific Games in Samoa draws to a close and the athletic community looks forward to the next Games in four years’ time, it is fitting to return to the theme of juniors and talent and potential. There were two other classic examples in the 7.2-km event, to add to the name of Joshua John from the short race: Brandon Aitsi was fifth in 40.35, while Falyn Buda was tenth and the only female finisher in 46.23. A nice set of numbers indeed. Next Saturday at 5.00 pm Road Runners will be at Port Moresby Grammar School for three events over 2.2, 5.8 and 8.6-km. Walkers, joggers and movers and shakers of all ages and abilities are welcome.last_img read more

Penalty call rankles with Rodgers as Liverpool lose

first_img1 Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has claimed his side should have been given a late penalty in their 2-1 defeat to Chelsea at Anfield.The time slipping away to net an equaliser, Steven Gerrard’s goalward effort was deflected wide by a diving Gary Cahill and replays seemed to suggest the shot had struck the England man’s arm.Referee Anthony Taylor waved away the Merseysiders’ claims for a spot-kick but the call left Rodgers fuming as his side tasted defeat for the fifth time this season in the Premier League.“I think it’s bitterly disappointing for us,” said Rodgers. “It’s a big decision in a big game that we didn’t get and it wasn’t even in doubt. It’s a clear handball and you need to get that.“My players gave everything today and deserved something from it [the game]. If we weren’t going to get it from open play then we certainly should have had it from the penalty spot.“We’re extremely disappointed as we think we deserved something from the game.”last_img read more
