Work on Guyana’s long awaited FIFA Goal Project to commence in a matter of months
Athletics: Long distance runner Cleveland Ford is undoubtedly king of the road when he blistered a field of top athletes to retain the Ainlim 10K title once again on Sunday. Ford clocked a time of 33.16 seconds. Placing second was Cleveland Thomas.
Defending female champion Alika Morgan proved to be no match for overseas-based runner Euleen Josiah-Tanner who finished first clocking a time of 39.21 seconds to win the women’s leg of the race.
Second place went to Jevina Straker who found a burst of energy to out sprint Morgan at the finish line.
The athletes would be now gearing their mind for the Courts 10K this Sunday, where Ford and Tanner would be defending their titles.
Basketball: Action in the Georgetown Inter-ward basketball tournament on Sunday saw Tucville/ Guyhoc defeating East West R/veldt . The tournament continues on Wednesday with quarterfinals action. Mc Doom/Diamond plays Werk-en-Rust and Plaisance tackle Lodge/Meadowbrook.
Football: Work on this country’s long awaited FIFA Goal Project is to commence in a matter of months.
On his recent visit to Guyana FIFA’s development officer Howard Mc Intosh disclosed that FIFA is committed to the process.
Over 209 countries were shortlisted for the FIFA goal project since 1999. The project was geared at helping countries like Guyana to develop and establish a head office and a technical training centre.
The Development officer said that Guyana’s performance has been rated very poor in that area.
President of the Guyana Football Federation Christopher Mathias noted that once all the logistics are put in place works will be commencing.
And in more football; Western Tigers leads the points table on twelve points followed by Riddim Squad on six points so far in the GFA qualifiers.
In play last night at the Tucville ground Riddim Squad trounced Western Tiger 3-1. Pele and Santos played to a nil all draw while Fruta Conquerors and Camptown draw one all. Action continues on Wednesday.
