No rush for Bailey – Cole – Sprinter healed after injury but pacing his return to training

first_img So while Bolt and others racked up medals for Jamaica, Bailey-Cole underwent acupuncture, ultrasound and massage therapy, as well as rehabilitation exercises which have allowed him to now declare that the injured muscle is healed. The sprinter, who is in Barcelona where he is among a number of athletes from different sports shooting an Olympic promotional video for Coca-Cola, said that while he is healed physically, there is still a long road to recovery. Revealing that he has lost some muscle mass because he has been unable to train during recovery, Bailey-Cole acknowledged that he may have been worrying too much about the injury. “The injury isn’t behind me as yet. After feeling the muscle tear in Japan, I am still kind of scared of running, even though it has healed,” he admitted. As a result, he does not plan on rushing back into training. “I have to begin slowly, start strengthening the area and the areas around it so the injury won’t occur again, and I am keeping a close eye on it whenever I feel something,” he said, while revealing that he is yet to discuss background training with his coach Glen Mills. Meantime, Bailey-Cole rues what he believes to be a missed opportunity at an individual global medal. “I think I would have run much faster this year [than I did in Moscow] and even got third at the World Championships,” he said. losing muscle mass Kemar Bailey-Cole is reporting that he is almost fully recovered from the hamstring injury that kept him out of the recent IAAF World Athletics Championships in Beijing, China, where he feels he missed out on a possible medal in the men’s 100-metre sprint won by fellow Jamaican Usain Bolt. Bailey-Cole, the 2014 Commonwealth Games champion, had just missed out on a medal in Moscow in 2013 and was looking to atone in Beijing. But he suffered an injury at the Sainsbury Anniversary Games in London in July, while running a personal best 9.92s, the same time run by American Trayvon Brommel and Canadian Andre DeGrasse in the final in Beijing. While trying to recuperate in Japan in time for the World Championships, the 2013 sprint relay gold medallist aggravated the injury, killing his chances for that elusive individual global medal.last_img read more

A pretty, back-alley win for the Ducks

first_img“I thought it was a big game for both teams,” Selanne said. “It was almost like a playoff game. The intensity was there.” Dustin Penner, the Ducks’ big right wing, set the tone for the physical play by slamming Vancouver’s Tommi Santala into the boards about five minutes into the game. Canucks defenseman Kevin Bieksa jumped Penner at center ice and they traded blows in a brief fight that was a mere warmup for what was to follow. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Both styles of play were on display during a rock `em, sock `em 4-2 victory Sunday night over the Vancouver Canucks in front of an announced sellout crowd of 17,174 at Honda Center. Teemu Selanne scored his 40th and 41st goals for the Ducks, becoming the first player in NHL history 35 or older to record 40 goals or more in back-to-back seasons. Honda Center, 7 p.m. FSN, KLAA/830 For the Ducks box score and NHL standings, see B7 ANAHEIM – The Ducks have shown this season that they can play the beautiful game, skating and passing and shooting in remarkable sequences that lead to highlight-reel goals. But they also can play the game in a back alley if the need arises. “That doesn’t make me feel very good,” Selanne, 36, said in mock anguish. Andy McDonald also scored two goals and added an assist as the Pacific Division-leading Ducks maintained their 10-point lead over Dallas and San Jose. Playoff scenarios are too numerous to list here, but the bottom line is that if the Ducks (42-17-11) maintain their stranglehold on the Pacific they’ll secure home-ice advantage for at least the first two rounds of the postseason. Alex Burrows and Brent Sopel scored for Northwest Division-leading Vancouver, which is 24-5-4 since Christmas. Ducks 4, Vancouver 2Wednesday: vs. Columbus last_img

Bill finds power in Senate

first_imgSACRAMENTO – California would increase its targets for using renewable energy under a measure that cleared the state Senate on Thursday, a bill that prompted debate over the state’s energy future. The bill would require public utilities to get 33 percent of their power from renewable sources by 2020. It expands on two state initiatives: the state’s landmark greenhouse gas reduction law that took effect this year; and a state law requiring that 20 percent of electricity come from environmentally friendly sources by 2010. “This is about smart energy policy,” said Sen. Joe Simitian, D-Palo Alto, who authored the bill with Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata, D-Oakland. But even as the state requires greater use of renewable energy sources, it has been adding regulations that make it more difficult and costly to produce, said Sen. Jim Battin, R-Palm Desert. “We’re going to end up with a very expensive way to produce power,” Battin said. “While it’s meant well, I don’t believe it is achievable under the (regulatory) environment that we have. … We need to make sure (regulations) are not hindering them.” On that, Battin and Simitian agreed. “There are too many impediments to renewable energy,” Simitian said. His bill, SB411, passed the Senate 21-15, with no votes to spare, and now goes to the Assembly. Simitian said he plans to use a second bill, SB410, to remove some of the state’s regulatory restrictions. Some other bills advanced Thursday: Victims of domestic violence could ask judges to grant protective orders for their pets under SB353, which passed the Senate on a 31-7 vote en route to the Assembly. The author, Sen. Sheila Kuehl, D-Santa Monica, said some pets have been injured or killed, while some victims avoid seeking help if they fear their pets could be harmed. Homeowner associations would have to issue a public agenda and stick to it, like other public governing bodies, under SB528. The bill by Sen. Sam Aanestad, R-Grass Valley, cleared the Senate on a 38-0 vote and goes to the Assembly. Aanestad said his bill would make homeowner associations more accountable to their members. Suspects could not be convicted solely based on the testimony of jailhouse informants, under SB609. The measure by Senate Majority Leader Gloria Romero, D-Los Angeles, requires that such testimony be corroborated by at least one other source, for fear that witnesses who are in custody have too much incentive to lie. The Senate bill was sent to the Assembly on a 25-10 vote. The Assembly, by a 70-0 vote, approved a bill by Assemblyman Ted Lieu, D-Torrance, that would allow spouses of military members to take up to 10 days of unpaid leave from their jobs when their husbands or wives return from Iraq or another war zone. The measure, which moves to the Senate, would cover employers with at least 25 workers.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
