Harry Kane enjoying life at the top after his meteoric rise for club and country

first_imgHarry Kane’s remarkable rise over the past 12 months has seen the striker become a Tottenham favourite, England regular and wedding crasher. It is hard to believe what a rapid, fairy-tale ascent the 22-year-old has enjoyed, having gone from third-choice frontman at White Hart Lane to score 31 goals for his boyhood club and net 79 seconds into his international debut. “Hectic” and “crazy” are the words Kane uses to describe a period for which the catalyst was his deflected free-kick as Spurs come from behind to beat Aston Villa last November. “Life has changed a lot,” he said of the time since his first league goal of the 2014/15 season. “I’ve started every game in the Premier League since that day, touch wood. “Outside of football, too, being an England international you get a lot more publicity and more fans coming up to you on the street or in a restaurant. “So, yes, it’s been a crazy year, but it’s all good and hopefully there is more to come.” Kane does not mind the fame side of things – “I know what is like to go up to ask for a picture or be star struck” – and still remembers what it was like when he met David Beckham as a kid, even if there is one request that still amuses him. “I get people ask me to do wedding videos, to say congratulations,” Kane said, smiling. “I’ve had that quite a lot. “This is just more people sometimes seeing me in the street or out and about. It’s more of a best man thing. Obviously there’s a lot of Spurs and England fans out there.” Kane laughed when it was mentioned that he has appeared at a lot of weddings he has never been to, but the desire of people he does not know to have him involved in such a special day underlines what a popular public figure the forward has become. “I went away with the missus and went away on a beach spending time looking back at what has been great season for me,” he said when asked if he could absorb what has happened. “Obviously this season, the games come so quick and fast, that you don’t have a chance to think about things. “You just get on with it, do your job and its more at the end of the season when you look back and think about what could have been.” There was certainly little to moan about last season, while this term’s bumpy start has also appears to have become a distant memory. Having been cast as the golden boy of English football, Kane found himself under the scrutiny after struggling to net at the start of the season – a frustrating run ended with six goals in four matches in all competitions for Spurs. “I’m always confident in my ability,” he said “I think even when I weren’t scoring goals, I didn’t feel I was playing bad. I still felt I was contributing to the team. We were playing well as a team, we were picking up results. “It was just I think a matter of time. I’ve said before, you need a bit of luck now and then. I probably didn’t have that at the start of the season.” Kane’s most recent goal secured Tottenham a 1-1 draw at rivals Arsenal, where the forward had spent time between the age of seven and nine. Released for being too small, the self-confessed late developer has more determination than most to remain in peak physical shape to perform at the highest level. Kane’s next chance to do that will come at Wembley on Tuesday, when France visit for an important friendly in the build-up to Euro 2016. “During the last Euros in 2012, I was in Greece with my girlfriend,” he said, fresh from winning his seventh cap in Friday’s 2-0 defeat in Spain. “I remember dragging her out to watch the games. Instead of going out for meals I dragged her out to a bar to watch the games. “I remember watching it and thinking hopefully one day I can be playing at the Euros myself so four years later hopefully I can end the season playing in them.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Dmitrieff’s hat trick guides MDI boys past EHS in B North quarterfinals

first_img Hospice volunteers help families navigate grief and find hope – September 12, 2020 Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020 BAR HARBOR — Eight days after playing to a stalemate, the Mount Desert Island and Ellsworth boys’ soccer team appeared headed for the same result on the same field.It certainly seemed fitting; after last Tuesday’s back-and-forth affair saw neither team gain the upper hand, MDI and Ellsworth were again deadlocked, this time in a winner-take-all playoff game. With only the last dozen or so minutes remaining in this Northern Maine quarterfinal battle, it appeared as if overtime or penalty kicks would be needed to break the two-game stalemate.Then, in a flash, Nick Dmitrieff changed everything.Dmitrieff highlighted a hat trick with two second-half goals Wednesday to give MDI a 4-1 win over Ellsworth in the Class B North quarterfinals. The senior’s three tallies marked the first multi-goal game of his career and sent the Trojans to the regional semis for the first time in five years.MDI’s Henning Reinholdt defends against Ellsworth’s Jacob Pung during the first half of a boys’ soccer playoff game Oct. 30 in Bar Harbor. The No. 3 Trojans (11-2-2) will host No. 10 Foxcroft (9-7) in the Class B North semifinals at 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2. ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELLThis is placeholder textThis is placeholder text“I’ve never scored more than once in a game, so this is kind of amazing,” Dmitrieff said. “This is the playoffs, and it’s important to be able to step up when it matters.”Sixth-ranked Ellsworth (5-8-2) got off to the better start to the game, possessing the ball in the attacking half and keeping the Trojans from making any noteworthy pushes toward goal. The Eagles put significant pressure on the MDI defense through Tulas Weaver, who sent a solid effort just high of the crossbar with 19 minutes left in the first half.Against the run of play, No. 3 MDI (11-2-2) took a 1-0 lead through Dmitrieff 15 minutes, 44 seconds before halftime. The goal came as Dmitrieff beat the Ellsworth defense on the right side of the 6-yard box and sent a rolling shot to the bottom-left corner.Ellsworth continued to create scoring chances for the remainder of the first half, though, and the Eagles tied it less than five minutes into the second as Matt Reid’s well-placed header found the back of the net. The visitors continued their offensive onslaught over the next 20 minutes and nearly took the lead with 15 to play when Reid struck the football crossbar.Yet with 12:17 remaining, MDI scored against the run of play a second time as Dmitrieff guided a loose ball in the penalty area into the back of the net to give the Trojans a 2-1 lead. Four minutes later, he bagged his third goal of the night with a long-range shot from the edge of the 18-yard box to the bottom-right corner.“I had a chance like that last time we played Ellsworth, and I wanted to take advantage this time,” Dmitrieff said of his third goal. “I didn’t overthink it; I just shot it, and it went in.”The Trojans scored their fourth and final goal with 3:29 to play as Ieuan Howell fired a powerful shot of his own into the top-right corner. That goal put the result beyond a shadow of a doubt and capped off a scoring barrage that MDI had been trying desperately to find.Ellsworth’s Sam Holler looks on as members of the MDI boys’ soccer team players celebrate Nick Dmitrieff’s first-half goal Oct. 30 in Bar Harbor. The sixth-ranked Eagles finished the season with a record of 5-8-2. ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELL“We spoke at halftime about how one wasn’t going to do it because one never does it,” assistant coach Max Mason said. “Playing a full game means playing a full 80 minutes, and we found a way to get those goals by playing MDI soccer.”For Ellsworth, the loss ended a season in which the Eagles dealt with numerous injuries and other player absences. Yet after the Eagles overcame such adversity to finish the regular season on a four-game unbeaten streak and return to the Class B North playoffs after a one-year hiatus, head coach Paul Lock couldn’t be anything but proud.“They had so many things happen to them this season, and after each occurrence, they were able to look each other in the eyes and pull it back together,” Lock said. “No matter how many players we lost, they went out there on each field and played each game touch by touch.”As for MDI, the Trojans will be back at home against No. 10 Foxcroft (9-7) at 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2. The two teams have already met once this season with the Trojans beating the Ponies 3-0 on Oct. 19 in Bar Harbor.Dmitrieff scored the third and final goal in that game to put the finishing touches on MDI’s victory. After Wednesday night’s scoring outburst, he will be hungry to continue his recent success as his team plays for a spot in the Northern Maine title game.“We have great team chemistry right now, and we obviously want to keep going as long as we can,” Dmitrieff said. “It’s great that we’re playing our best soccer at the right time, and I’m glad I can be a part of it.”Update: This story has been updated to include the time and date of MDI’s Class B North semifinal game against Foxcroft.

Cricket News BCCI Ombudsman to review Raman’s appointment as women’s team coach

first_imgNew Delhi: The appointment of women’s head coach W V Raman in controversial circumstances will be reviewed by BCCI Ombudsman and Ethics Officer D K Jain, the Committee of Administrators (CoA) decided in a meeting here on Saturday.Former India opener Raman was appointed in December following a selection process conducted by an ad-hoc panel comprising former captain Kapil Dev, Anshuman Gaekwad and Shantha Rangaswamy.   However, the then two-member CoA comprising chairman Vinod Rai and Diana Edulji  were strongly divided on the coach selection process.While Rai had approved the appointment, Edulji called the entire process a “sham and unconstitutional”, saying the the Cricket Advisory Committee comprising Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Sourav Ganguly, which had requested for more time, was entrusted with the responsibility of picking the coach.Four months later, the matter has been referred to the Ombudsman.”We have referred the matter to the Ombudsman and it will be his call whether the appointment will need to be reviewed or not,” a BCCI official told PTI after the meeting here.Performances under Raman have been a mixed bag with the team doing well in beating New Zealand and reigning World Cup champions England in the ICC ODI Championship. However, the results in the T20 format have a left a lot to be desired after a 0-3 scoreline against hosts New Zealand as well as the visiting England side.The 53-year-old from Chennai was given charge of the team after the unceremonious exit of Ramesh Powar.The BCCI had invited fresh applications for the job after Powar’s brief stint as interim coach ended in November in rather controversial circumstances.The Supreme Court-appointed CoA had been divided over the selection process ever since fresh applications were invited.Powar’s controversial interim tenure ended on November 30 after a bitter fallout with ODI captain and senior player Mithali Raj over selection issues during the World T20 in the West Indies.Powar decided to re-apply after T20 captain Harmanpreet Kaur and her deputy Smriti Mandhana came out in strong support of the former India spinner but was overlooked for the job.

Vogel bypasses redshirt season

first_imgMore times than not, freshmen entering the world of Big Tenwrestling figure on redshirting their freshman year. It?s to be expected inwhat many call the toughest conference in the NCAA. With the Big Ten winning 12of the last 18 national championships ? the other six going to Oklahoma State ?those new to this level need that redshirt year to take in the essence andtruly understand the level of play they are now up against.Of the five freshmen who came to campus this fall towrestle, one is taking a different path by wrestling as a true freshman.Despite the ups and downs, freshman Kendall Vogel has adapted as well as onecould in the Big Ten.?I knew that coming in as a freshman that there?s lots tolearn,? Vogel said. ?It?s a whole different level at [Division I].?Vogel?s route to Wisconsin followed several other teammembers? paths. Vogel is a homegrown kid, growing up in Westfield, a city about70 miles north of Madison. He reached the WIAA state championship three timesin his four years of high school wrestling, winning a title last year as asenior at 160 pounds weight class and finished with an overall record of 42-1.So far in his freshman year, Vogel has a 9-14 record andstands at 1-5 in the Big Ten. His one win in conference, however, was by pin.Vogel knew coming in that this would be a whole different ball game than lastyear.?It?s definitely different from high school,? Vogel said.?Just because there?s such a tradition in the Big Ten, and knowing your part ofthat. In high school there?s that small town rivalry, but here ? Big Ten, NCAA,D1 ? it?s a cool feeling. I get to wrestle at Wisconsin as a true freshman. It?sa great feeling.?Vogel didn?t know for sure this would be his next stop aftergraduation. After finishing runner-up at state as a junior, Vogel had a fewinterests from other colleges. It was that summer before his senior year whenhe spent a week at a camp in Colorado Springs at the USA Olympic trainingcenter, where Vogel grabbed the attention of Badger assistant coach, BartChelesvig.?Bart did a techniques session, and that was when they firstcontacted me,? Vogel said. ?It?s Badger-everything growing up here. I knew thiswould be the best situation to have that opportunity.?Since coming to campus in September, Vogel has adapted wellto the change of life. His hometown has a population of 1,300, so coming to acity of more than 200,000 can be quite a shock.?It was a lot to get used to,? Vogel said.Once here and in the wrestling room for workouts, there weretalks of redshirting. Vogel originally had planned on taking this year as a redshirtto adapt to the life of a Division 1 wrestler. However, head coach Barry Davishad a problem. He needed someone to step in for departed senior andAll-American Tyler Turner at 149 pounds.?This is one of the toughest weight classes in the countryright now,? Davis said. ?Sometimes it?s good for a kid to come in right awayand wrestle. I think Kendall Vogel was ready for it, and that?s why we did it.?Now that his freshman year is almost over, Vogel knows thisis the time to turn it on. A year ago Vogel was preparing for the WIAAIndividual State Tournament, where he dominated the field en route to histitle. This week, Vogel is preparing for the Badgers last team dual againstNorthwestern before the Big Ten Championships March 8 and 9 in Minneapolis.Despite the ups and downs thus far, Vogel knows now is when his team needs himmost.?I mean, it?s definitely been a bumpy road,? Vogel said. ?Iknew that coming in as a freshman that there?s lots to learn, it?s a wholedifferent level at D1. But the best I can do is keep improving and keep tryingto get to that next level. That?s what the team needs, what the coaches wantand what I want.?While Vogel knows there is still a lot to learn, Davisbelieves Vogel has done well, all things considered.?I think he understands what Big Ten wrestling is all aboutand what wrestling is about in Division I. I think he?s making that adjustment,?Davis said. ?He?s a mentally tough kid and a key player down the road for us.?last_img read more

Korger: Death of UW legends, Part 1

first_imgThe Wisconsin boxing program was in the center of collegiate boxing success until concerns about medical issues connected with the sport saw the end of boxing in the collegiate arena.[/media-credit]On a lucky occasion, wandering into the Field House after hours can render a surreal exposure. With dimmed lights and a faint reflection from the hardwood floors, the old gym almost seems false, an apparition, a sight linked in limbo of a storied past and a still-used future.Maybe it’s in those moments; if you listen hard enough, the roars from April 9, 1960, still echo. A day where the championship banners of the Wisconsin boxing program didn’t seem so out of place in a place affectionately called the “old barn.” A day where the fate of two legends would be decided in a matter of minutes.Simply the bestThere was never a program that came close to the clout of the Badgers in the arena of intercollegiate boxing. Boxing at Wisconsin started out in April of 1920 with something called an “all university” boxing tournament. It featured student-boxers – and prominently, student-boxers who had been trained and exposed to boxing during the training regimens in the army during World War II – in six weight divisions vying to be named champion and was housed in a building that still stands as iconic as ever on campus: the Red Gym.The event became so popular that it eventually had to be moved from the Red Gym – where 1,800 spectators had been in attendance for the 1929 finals – to the UW Stock Pavilion in 1930. That same year the tournament drew 8,000 fans for the finals. Finally, in 1931, the Field House was completed. Soon after, UW publicity director George Downer secured the new building for the 1931 tourney.Just a few short years after the move, Wisconsin took the leap from amateur/intramural to official intercollegiate boxing in April of 1933, when it welcomed St. Thomas College of St. Paul, Minn., to the Field House. The match ended in a 4-4 draw, but the most noticeable result of the match came from who was in attendance.Coaching and boxing for St. Thomas was a 21-year-old and Minnesota native by the name of John Walsh. Watching in the crowd, Downer saw a man he believed could lead Wisconsin boxing to the upper echelon. Originally planning to attend law school at St. Thomas, Walsh accepted the job upon learning St. Thomas was dropping its law program, opting to coach the Badgers and attend law school at UW.The results speak for themselves as Walsh went from youngster to the greatest college boxing coach of all time. Wisconsin won five team championships under his guidance and went unbeaten and untied nine different seasons. In fact, Walsh was such a dominant coach that the unofficial champion trophy of college boxing was named after him in 1948, the year Wisconsin hosted the NCAA tournament.The sport of violenceCollege boxing matches featured three two-minute rounds where the boxers would don headgear and larger gloves than the professional prizefighters. Still, critics saw boxing as a sport whose sole object was to hurt the opponent and that any risk of brain injury outweighed the benefits of the sport. Too barbaric, the critics said, for a prestigious school to be associated with, as reports of boxers suffering “punch-drunkenness” surfaced.That criticism looked to have some measurable weight. According to author Martin Kane in an article entitled “You Can Blame it on the Moms” appearing in the March 30, 1959, issue of Sports Illustrated, in 1948 there were 55 colleges playing intercollegiate bouts. However, by 1952, just 29 teams remained with more on the verge of disintegrating.“People have a visceral reaction against boxing,” author and Wisconsin State Journal columnist Doug Moe said. Moe wrote the definitive history of Wisconsin boxing in his book “Lords of the Ring: The Triumph and Tragedy of College Boxing’s Greatest Team.” “College professors maybe more than most for other reasons. There were discussions whether this was a good activity for prestigious universities to be engaged in. Certainly the boxing people here in Madison had a lot of support and belief among themselves that the sport built character to use a clich?, and was more than a worthwhile activity but they were losing ground because colleges were dropping it. Big boxing schools were getting out of it so the writing may have been on the wall.”A study released by two doctors working for the New York State Athletic Commission in 1959, Harry Kaplan and Jefferson Browder, said there was no evidence in their study of 1,403 professional boxers using electroencephalograms that a blow to the head by a padded glove “rarely produces cerebral changes demonstrable by any test that we have at the present time.” They also went on to disagree with what they called a common medical opinion, saying there was no evidence to support the idea that a knockout in boxing caused multiple “pinpoint” hemorrhages in the brain.Wisconsin continued on as signs that the sport was in decline swirled around them, even producing a champion in the NCAA meet the same year. That boxer was a 165-pound fighter named Charlie Mohr.(Part 2 will appear in Thursday’s paper. Information and facts from Doug Moe’s book “Lords of the Ring” were used in this column.)last_img read more
