Bright-looking future for female sprinting

The original Golden Girls of The Bahamas started something really good.
Pauline Davis, Chandra Sturrup, Eldece Clarke, Savetheda Fynes and Debbie Ferguson put together an international run in the sprint relay from 1996 to 2002 that will live on throughout time.
Olympic gold and silver medals, a world championship and a Commonwealth gold highlighted a period of dominance for the Bahamian speed ladies few other nations can compare with. (Timicka Clarke joined Sturrup, Ferguson and Fynes for the 2002 Manchester Commonwealth Games triumph following the retirement of Davis and Eldece Clarke).
Sturrup and Ferguson are still in the mix but supporters in this country and around the world know that in a few ye ...

'Q' runs 11.07 seconds in Auburn!

Sheniqua 'Q' Ferguson not only ran her fastest time ever this past weekend, but it was also the fastest time in the world this year.
The Auburn graduate, still in Auburn training with coach Henry Rolle, ran a blistering 11.07 seconds to win the women's 100 meters (m) at the War Eagle Invitational on Saturday. She initially ran a personal best time of 11.10 seconds in the heats, matching the world lead, and then came back in the final to crack the 11.0s for the first time in her career. Bahamian Nivea Smith, representing the Auburn Tigers, was seventh in that same race, in 11.78 seconds, and Tia Rolle, of Alabama State, was eighth, in 11.81 seconds. Smith ran 11.71 seconds in the heats. Just last week, Ferguson ran a personal best time of 22.64 seconds in the women's 200m, and now she has run a personal best time in the 100m.
"I feel awesome," said Ferguson from Auburn, Alabama yesterday. "I'm very happy with the time. I know I was about to run a fast time, and for it to be the fastest time in the world this year, I'm very happy. I just thank God that I was able to run so fast. I knew that anything was possible. Coming in, my goal was just to run faster than my PR (previous personal best time - 11.17 seconds). I just wanted to run fast and I felt like it was going to happen. To come out early in the season and run that time is a good feeling. Right now, my goal is to go under 11 seconds. I definitely feel like I could do it, but I'm just going to take it one meet at a time. There is a whole lot more running to go."
Bahamian coach Rolle, an assistant at Auburn University, also believes that 22-year-old Ferguson will eventually crack 11 seconds. For The Bahamas, just the 'Original Golden Girls' have accomplished that feat.
"Her training has been going really well," said Rolle yesterday. "She is really focussed. Her training indicated to me that she was ready to run very fast. That's how I knew Anthonique was ready to run very fast as well. These girls have shown tremendous improvement and the sky is the limit for them," he added.
Ferguson trains with fellow Bahamian Anthonique Strachan under the watchful eyes of Rolle down there in Auburn. Strachan ran her personal best time of 11.22 seconds at the Colina CARIFTA Trials last month, and matched that performance at the CARIFTA Track and Field Championships. Also in that camp in Auburn is Beijing Olympic Games silver medalist Kerron Stewart, from Jamaica. The three ladies teamed up with American Joanna Atkins to win the women's 4x100m at the War Eagle Invitational this past weekend, in 42.81 seconds. Ferguson ran the third leg in that relay. Smith ran as a part of the Auburn Tigers team which finished second, in 44.14 seconds. Rolle ran for the Alabama State team and they finished fifth, in 45.97 seconds. Smith also ran on the Auburn 4x400m team and they were third, in 3:42.99.
This upcoming weekend at the prestigious Penn Relays in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Ferguson is scheduled to team up with Strachan, Smith and Chandra Sturrup, as the quartet hope to post a fast time on their trek to qualify a Bahamian women's sprint relay team for the London Olympics. The top 16 aggregate times in the world will qualify for the Olympics.
"I'm really looking forward to it," said Ferguson yesterday. "I feel like we just have to develop that chemistry. It's all about getting the girls together in one place. I'm a lil disappointed Debbie won't be there but she has her obligations so we just have to go out there and post a fast time without her. We were looking forward to running with Debbie but there will be more times. Right now, we have other people who could fill in. We will miss her but we have to do what we have to do. The exchange with Anthonique this past weekend went smoothly so hopefully, we could build off that and get faster," she added.
Also on that team, as an alternate, is University of Georgia freshman Tynia Gaither. Ferguson is optimistic that the girls can break 43 seconds in the relay.
Also competing at that meet in Auburn was national record holder in the men's triple jump, 'Superman' Leevan Sands. He opened up his outdoor season and popped a respectable 16.90m (55' 5-1/2") leap to win that event.
"I just want The Bahamas to know that Superman is back," said Sands from Auburn yesterday. "I'm here in full effect. Coach actually had in on the board for me to go out there and do 16.9 as an opening jump, and I was right at that. That's right where I wanted to be. I'm working on my hop and step and it's just a matter of time before I put a big jump together... 16.9 is a good opener for me. I was around that mark back in 2008 as well and I ended up with a great season. I'm looking for another great season this year."
That year, Sands culminated his season with the bronze medal at the Beijing Olympics - setting the national record at 17.59m (57' 8-1/2"). He suffered a slight knee injury at last year's International Association of Athletic Federations' (IAAF) World Championships in Daegu, South Korea, but the Bahamian Superman said that he is fully recovered and ready to have a great year for The Bahamas.
"I'm trying a new approach this year," said Sands. "I'm moving back to 18 steps to hopefully get more speed to the board. Health wise I feel good. I'm a veteran now, so I'm focussed on what I need to do to show up at the big meets. It's all about winning another medal at the Olympics. I'm just going to take it one meet at a time and look to pop a big one when it counts - put it all in God's hands. My goal is to get into the Olympics healthy and have a strong performance for The Bahamas."
Also picking up a win on Saturday was former World Champion Donald Thomas in the men's high jump. The Bahamian high jumper leapt 2.26m (7' 5") for the win. Ryan Ingraham had a best jump of 2.17m (7' 1-1/4"), for third. Bahamian national record holder in the women's long jump, Bianca Stuart, also competed at the War Eagle Invitational in Auburn. Stuart shook off an injury suffered at the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Instanbul, Turkey, this year, to jump 6.51m (21' 4-1/4"), for second on Saturday. V'Alonee Robinson finished 13th in that competition, with a best jump of 5.44m (17' 10-1/4").
A number of other Bahamians competed at that meet in Auburn on Saturday, especially in the men's 100m. Jamal Rolle was fifth in 10.40 seconds; Aaron Cleare was 19th overall in 10.84 seconds; Shamar Sands was 21st overall in 10.86 seconds; Shawn Lockhart, representing Alabama State, was 22nd overall in 10.88 seconds, and Niles Stuart was 31st overall in 11.12 seconds. Rolle came back and was third in the 200m, in 20.84 seconds, and Lockhart was 32nd overall, in 22.15 seconds.
Nivea Smith also ran the 200m and finished second, in 23.32 seconds. Tia Rolle was seventh, in 23.88 seconds, and Robinson was ninth in 23.93 seconds. Krystal Bodie finished sixth in the women's 100m hurdles, in 13.45 seconds.
Also on Saturday, Andre Williams was third in the men's 400m, in 47.24 seconds, and Nathan Arnett was 13th overall in 48.81 seconds. Arnett was third in the men's 110m hurdles, in 14.14 seconds.
Niles Stuart had a best jump of 7.31m (23' 11-3/4") in the men's long jump to finish fourth, and Douglas Palacious finished seventh with a best of 7.06m (23' 2"). Palacious was fifth in the triple jump, with a best jump of 14.71m (48' 3").
Also this past weekend at the LSU Invitational, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Demetrius Pinder ran 20.46 seconds in the 200m, and at the Tom Jones Memorial, in Gainesville, Florida, Rodney Greene ran 10.63 seconds in the 100m. At the Mt. SAC Relays, Cache Armbrister ran 55.26 seconds in the 400m.
At the Atlantic Coast Conference Championships, in Charlottesville, Virginia, Warren Fraser ran 10.34 seconds in the 100m and 21.10 seconds in the 200m. Also at those championships, Stephen Newbold ran a personal best time of 46.97 seconds in the 400m.
At the John McDonnell Invitational, in Arkansas, Ivanique Kemp tied her national record in the 100m hurdles, running 13.20 seconds; Tia Thompson ran 13.82 seconds in that same event; Jeffrey Gibson ran 50.69 seconds in the 400m hurdles; Andretti Bain ran 47.03 seconds in the 400m, and a pair of Bahamian long jumpers had outstanding performances in the men's long jump. Raymond Higgs leapt 8.07m (26' 5-3/4"), and Rudon Bastian leapt 7.93m (26' 0-1/4").
Next weekend Bahamian athletes will participate at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia and the Drake Relays in Des Moines, Iowa.

Softball games rained out again

For the second consecutive week, games in the New Providence Softball Association (NPSA) had to be postponed due to inclement weather.
The league was forced to play the two opening games, scheduled for last week Saturday, on Monday past. That announcement, made by league president Godfrey Burnside, came an hour after the official ceremony. This weekend the call to reschedule the games to today was made long before teams and fans flocked to the park.
Taking to the field first today will be the Lady Hitmen, squaring off against the ASAP Assassins. The men's affair will follow immediately afterwards. That exciting feature will showcase the Dorin United Hitmen going up against the Blue Chip Buccaneers.
"It is unfortunate that we had to postpone the games, but we can't do anything with Mother Nature," said Burnside. "I am not worried about having a back-up of games. The schedule has open dates so when the opening was rained out last Saturday, we played the two games on Monday night. If this weather persists and we continue to have postponements then we will make-up those games on our free days, like Mondays or Wednesdays. The two games that were scheduled for today (Saturday), we will play those games on Monday. The ladies game will start at 7 p.m., and the men's at 8:30 p.m."
The league played on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of last week. The regular scheduled games are on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
There are seven female squads competing for the top honors this year and six male teams. A total of 21 games each, three rounds of games, will be played on the female's side, before the start of the playoffs. The men will have 24 games each, four rounds, of regular season play. Burnside believes that most of the teams are pretty much even, in terms of their play, and that upsets can happen on any given night.
Playing in the women's division are the Proper Care Pool Sharks, the Lady Hitmen, the Y2 Shipping Wildcats, the Sigma Brackettes, the ASAP Assassins, the Black Scorpions and the Bommer G. Operators. The six teams that will compete for the men's title include the Blue Chip Buccaneers, the Y2 Shipping Bulldogs, the Bommer G. Truckers, the Miller Rams, the Dorin United Hitmen and the Caribbean Civil Group Mighty Mitts.

Suspicious activity during the election

Dear Editor,

In the letters to the editor column of The Nassau Guardian of June 11, 2012 was a letter from one Darron Cash under the title "Minister Keith Bell's accusations impugn integrity of force". It is quite obvious that Cash is an FNM. That being the case, he is not in a position to make a fair determination on Bell's statement.
In Bell's letter to the commissioner he was in part stating a fact, something that was seen not only by him, but countless others. I have been told by any number of voters that the FNM was paying good money for votes and wanted my opinion on what they should do. My advice was simple: You need the money, take it and vote for who you feel like. Apparently many voters did just that and the final results of the election, like 2002, proved it.
The officers who were assigned to the political gofers were, I can assure you, there on orders from a superior who had his instructions from the top echelon of the political directorate. It is amazing that Cash, one of papa's blue-eyed boys, is now calling for an inquiry. He must be careful because he might just get what he wished for and it most certainly will not be what he wanted.
For the information of Cash, in the 2002 election when defeat was staring the FNM in the face, each candidate (FNM) was given $1 million two weeks before the election to try to win. I think that this administration should have a micro-audit of all treasury accounts for the period of 1997 and 2002 and 2007 to 2012 by a private accounting firm and let the chips fall where they may. All contracts given for the same periods must be reviewed.
Bell's statements did not impugn the integrity of the force; it was the person or persons in the political directorate who corruptly ordered the use of those officers for such ventures. Cash would be well advised to let the commissioner of police carry out his duties without disruption and/or detractions by wannabe politicians.
Adding insult to injury was an article including comments from the leader of the FNM on page A2 of The Nassau Guardian of June 12 under the headline "Minnis says Bell should name officers who facilitated corruption".

Is Dr. Hubert Minnis really serious? The persons handing out the envelopes were naturally paid gofers. The persons guarding them, if they were police officers, were there on orders. The question is, on whose orders? Certainly not the commissioner of police; maybe an officer of high rank, but we now have another question. Who gave instructions? We are now getting close. It not only must be, but it has to be someone from the top echelon of the political directorate. Can you please help the investigation in that regard dear doctor? Seeing that you are now the new leader, certain information should be readily available to you.
I do agree with you dear doctor that the new administration should be focused on criminal activities and I am sure that you will agree that they should begin with the shenanigans of the former administration in this regard. I do not think that they should be concerned about what the Americans think about our situation, as they have a far more serious one. They are concerned about not only the young ladies, but every person who has been murdered. They do not have to worry about Father's Day for they will know when that day is approaching by the number of crab baskets and pens that will be adorning our streets.
Dr. Minnis is a true professional and a good representative, but that certainly does not make him a leader. He is now in very deep waters, in fact he is in a blue hole - one that can spell the end to his political ambitions.
Leaders are born not made and that is a truism. The departure of Hubert Ingraham from the political landscape of this archipelago has left not only this nation broke and chin deep in debt, but a broken economy, a messed up city with canals along all major routes, a crime-ridden social system, corruption at an unprecedented level, an unacceptable level of joblessness, a frustrated electorate and a party like a rudderless ship in a category five hurricane, leaderless, broke, millions of dollars in debt and on the verge of disbanding. Oh, what a fantastic legacy for posterity.

- Errington W. I. Watkins

Three women make history at Bahamasair

Three Bahamian women opened a new chapter in the history of the national flag carrier yesterday, becoming Bahamasair's first female captains in the traditionally male-dominated field.
Captains Frances Smith, Gwendolyn Ritchie and Gail Saunders follow in the footsteps of Patrice Clarke, the first female pilot hired by Bahamasair in 1984, nearly 11 years after it opened. Clarke, who was the only female professional pilot in the country at the time, went on to become the first female African-American airline captain of a major carrier in the United States (United Parcel Service).
Managing Director of Bahamasair Henry Woods told The Nassau Guardian that Smith, Ritchie and Saunders have a combined 56 years of experience in the industry and have each proved themselves over the years in their tenure, and through extensive training in the highly technical field.
"The achievement of these three women speaks volumes to the standards that are prevailing at Bahamasair because they stand out in what you would call a male-dominated field," Woods said during a press conference at Bahamasair's hangar facility at Lynden Pindling International Airport.
Women represent just under 10 percent of the 72 pilots employed by Bahamasair, according to Woods.
Director of Flight Operations Captain Paulo Cartwright said Bahamasair stands out among its regional and international counterparts in presenting three women captains at the same time, in light of the country's small population and the aviation community.
"Our history of women goes way back and we are proud of the achievement," Woods said.
"We are proud of what these young ladies have achieved and we are sure they are going to be role models and an inspiration for a lot of people out there - men and women - as an indication of what you can achieve with dedication, sacrifice and hard work."
When asked how it felt to make history Captain Saunders said: "We never thought of it as making history with our achievements when we marked out our goal to become captains. But it feels great."
Captain Smith said the sacrifice has been great for her and her colleagues as they have balanced an extremely competitive career with motherhood and family life. She said all of this was 'challenging', but made the achievement all the more special.
She added that it took a lot of sacrifice and determination to get where she is today and advised young people to "aim for the skies and you can achieve whatever you set your mind to".
Captain Ritchie added that their achievement is a testament to what others could achieve and hoped young Bahamian women would be more ambitious professionally, especially in male-dominant fields.
Woods said another two women, who are currently pilots, are expected to reach the rank of captain after receiving the necessary training in the next few years.

What next for Branville McCartney

My mother's favourite cousin is someone she calls, "the most conceited person she ever knew." He was a larger than life man who practised regularly what he called his "killer smile."

Legend has it he would stand in front of the mirror and practise his swagger. He would stroke his chin and tune up his smile, the one that would "kill the ladies."

This little bit of family history is relevant only in as much as I am reminded of my cousin sometimes when people speak about Branville McCartney, member of parliament for Bamboo Town. Last year he resigned from the high profile job of Minister of State f ...
