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

IS IONSAÍ AR AN DAONLATHAS Í AN BHILLE GAELTACHTA – Ó CLOCHARTAIGH

first_imgIs mór an dochar a dhéanfaidh sé deireadh a chur le toghadh bhord Údarás na Gaeltachta do neamhspleáchas agus cuntasacht na heagraíochta sin, dar le Seanadóir Shinn Féin, Trevor Ó Clochartaigh.Bhí an Seanadóir as Gaillimh Thiar ag labhairt tar éis foilsiú Bille na Gaeltachta 2012, a dhéanann athchóiriú ar struchtúr & feidhmiú an Údaráis agus a rialóidh straitéisí pleanála teanga sa nGaeltacht agus in gceantair eile den tír.“Is masla amach is amach é agus céim mhór ar gcúl do phobal na Gaeltachta, deireadh a bheith dhá chur le toghadh Bhord an Údaráis. De réir an Bhille, beidh seachtar den bhord ceaptha ag an Aire, agus ainmneoidh Comhairlí Chontae, a bhfuil limistéir Gaeltachta faoina gcúram, cúigear eile. Ach, is léir ón méid sin go mbeidh an bord – agus an Údarás – go huile is go hiomlán faoi smacht an Aire as seo amach. “Tá feidhm i bhfad níos tábhachtaí ag an Údarás ná díreach mar eagraíocht teanga. Is eagraíocht í atá freagrach as forbairt eacnamúil, sóisialta agus cultúrtha na Gaeltachta. Tá ionadaíocht poiblí lárnach dó sin agus tá toghcháin poiblí ag teastáil le go bhfeidhmeodh an tÚdarás mar ba chóir agus go mbeadh cuntasacht daonlathach ag baint léi. Laghdaíonn an Bhille seo an tionchar gur féidir leis an bpobal a bheith acu ar fheidhmiú an Údaráis agus inár dtuairim tá sé sin díobhálach do phobal na Gaeltachta.“Beidh Sinn Féin ag iarraidh an Bhille seo a leasú chun na toghcháin don Bhoird a choinneáil. Táimid chun moladh go ndéanfar é a leasú freisin chun na Coistí Réigiúnacha, a bhfuil deireadh á chur leo sa bhille seo chomh maith, a choinneáil.“Is maith an rud é go mbeidh bunús reachtúil faoin bpróiséas pleanála teanga agus táimid den dtuairim go bhféadfadh an catagóir nua do Lionraí Gaeilge a bheith dearfach i gceantair taobh amuigh den Ghaeltacht agus i bpobail uirbeacha. É sin ráite, tá imní mhór orainn faoin méid cumhachta atá ag an Aire ó thaobh forghníomhú na bhforálacha seo.“Is fiú tagairt do na ciorraithe i maoiniú an Údaráis le blianta beaga anuas agus ar an mbúnús sin tá ceisteanna móra ann maidir le acmhainní cuí a bheith ar fáil don Údarás agus na heagrais forbartha pobail a fhaigheann maoiniú uaithi don meádú breise a thiocfaidh ar a gcuid dualgais ó thaobh pleanáil teanga agus fiontraíochta de. “In ainneoin na gnéithe dearfacha den bhille seo, ní féidir le Sinn Féin tacú leis an reachtaíocht mar atá sé faoi láthair, mar go bhfuil sé riachtanach, dar linn, go mbeadh cuntasacht daonlathach ann don Údarás.” IS IONSAÍ AR AN DAONLATHAS Í AN BHILLE GAELTACHTA – Ó CLOCHARTAIGH was last modified: June 20th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:IS IONSAÍ AR AN DAONLATHAS Í AN BHILLE GAELTACHTA – Ó CLOCHARTAIGHlast_img read more
