Coach Evans guiding young Bahamians in Canada

Yet another Bahamian is overseas paving the way for his young countrymen to receive educational opportunities through sports.
Coach Ray Evans, who accepted the Athletic Director's job at Life Christian Academy in Ottawa, Canada last semester, currently has nine Bahamians under his wing - eight young men and one young lady. All of the youngsters are between the ages of 16 and 19, and all are a part of the varsity basketball squads.
Coach Evans said that the transition has been a difficult one, but they are all adjusting very well. A number of the players are strong contributors on the senior boys squad.
"It was tough for all of us initially, especially for me and my family because my wife had a government job and was in line for a promotion. To uproot my family just like that and move to a foreign country was quite an experience but it is one that I don't regret. I just want to thank my wife for allowing me to pursue this professional opportunity. I love her dearly because she really gave up a lot to help me have this opportunity to help others - to help young Bahamians fulfill their educational and athletic aspirations."
Young Bahamians up there with Evans are Donald Gibson from Tabernacle Baptist Academy, Jordan Jones and Justin Smith from Eight Mile Rock High School, Bijan Duncombe formerly of Catholic High School, Nathaniel Newbold Jr. from Jack Hayward High, Linroy Russell from Sunland Baptist, Demario Hepburn from St. George's and Alex Delancy from Gateway Academy in Bimini. Evans currently has his senior boys sporting a 14-3 win/loss record in their basketball season. In their last game on Tuesday, they prevailed by one point, 73-72, in double overtime.
"All of the boys are playing well," said Evans. "In the last tournament they played in, Justin Smith was the Tournament MVP (most valuable player), and Demario Hepburn was the 'Defensive Player of the Tournament'.
They were joined on the All-Tournament team by Donald Gibson; so they are contributing very strongly to the program. Justin was unable to play in the last game but the back-up point guard from Bimini, Alex, had a very good game. Donald led the way with 18 points and seven rebounds and hit the game-winning shot. More importantly, these young guys are getting the opportunity to be seen.
"A good number of NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) schools, D-II schools and junior colleges are interested in our kids. The numbers might not be there for the D-I schools but the goal is to get these kids tertiary level scholarships so that they can have the opportunities to be seen by D-I scouts and further their collegiate careers. They are drawing a lot of interest from the Canadian schools as well."
Evans, who served as the basketball coach of the Teleos Christian Cherubims before jetting for Canada, is hoping to recruit another six or seven Bahamians this September. He actually stumbled across the Athletic Director's job by mistake. In the summer of 2010, he was trying to get some of his players at Teleos off to schools in the United States when a school called Life Christian Academy in North Carolina was brought to his attention. He searched for the institution online, and ended up calling Life Christian in Canada as opposed to Life Christian in North Carolina. Be that as it may, the principal of the Canadian private high school expressed interest; they developed a good rapport, and a few months later, Evans was offered the Athletic Director's position.
"It's a great opportunity and I'm thankful for it," said Evans. "I'm just trying to help as many kids as possible from back home. Here, everyone likes the style of play that we use. They see that it has been successful. These kids are going to be able to adapt to college easily because of the many styles of play that we teach here at Life Christian. A lot of college coaches are liking what they see. The main difference between here and back home is that these boys wouldn't have the opportunities to be seen by so many coaches back home. I just want to say thanks to all of the parents who entrusted their kids in our care. They allowed them to be a part of our program, and I'm thankful for that."
Evans and his senior boys will finish their season in two big tournaments, the National Capital Classic from February 1-4 and the Falcon Classic from February 9-13. During the Easter break, Evans and some of his colleagues from Canada will come down here to The Bahamas to scout some of the local talent, and hopefully offer them scholastic opportunities in Canada.

Economic development and deepening reform in China

In 2013, although faced with a complicated domestic and international situation, the CPC (Communist Party of China) Central Committee and the State Council led the people of all nationalities of China in thoroughly implementing the spirit of the 18th Party Congress, upheld the general ethos of "moving forward while maintaining stability", and adhered to the guideline that "the macro policy should be stable, micro policy flexible and social policy should support the bottom line", while maintaining steady growth, adjusting economic structures and forging ahead with reform, all while actively making innovations to the means of macro control. As a result, national economic and social development saw stabilized and accelerated growth and achieved a good start.
Economic performance fulfilled its target in 2013
The economy as a whole was stable and experienced comparatively fast growth in 2013. GDP for the year reached 56.88 trillion yuan (1 USD = 6.1 yuan), an increase of 7.7 percent over the previous year and in full accord with the targeted figure. China's government revenue increased by 10.1 percent to 12.91 trillion yuan and the deficit was 1.2 trillion yuan. Profits from industrial enterprises totaled 6.28 trillion yuan. It is gratifying that domestic demand continued to be the main driving force of growth. Retail sales of consumer goods totaled 23.78 trillion yuan, an increase of 13.1 percent. A number of new forms and areas of consumption were very vigorous, and the value of e-commerce transactions exceeded 10 trillion yuan, an increase of 19.3 percent. The contribution of domestic demand to economic growth reached 104.4 percent.
Meanwhile, overall price levels were basically stable. Consumer prices for the year rose 2.6 percent, within the targeted range. The work of purchasing, storing and releasing important commodities and of adjusting their imports and exports proceeded in good order.
Progress was made in structural adjustment and economic transformation
China has experienced three decades of super-fast growth at the expense of cheap costs. Now, we face more restrictions from limited natural resources and an ageing society. Domestic consumption should be the new growth engine. In 2013, the Chinese government comprehensively advanced economic structural reform and created sound systems and mechanisms for maintaining stable growth and carrying out structural adjustments.
China's economic adjustments have shown marked progress. Industrial structural adjustment proceeded steadily. Significant achievements were made in technological innovations and fostering emerging industries. The integration of urban and rural development proceeded in an orderly fashion. Development in multiple regions became better balanced. Efforts were accelerated to conserve energy, reduce emissions and protect the environment. According to statistics, the proportion of the manufacturing industry to GDP dropped for the first time. The growth rate in the less developed central and western parts of the country was much higher than in the richer eastern region in 2013, signaling more balanced development across the board.
An array of measures have successfully helped to transform the economy, such as using value-added tax to replace turnover tax and setting up the pilot Shanghai Free Trade Zone. China's fast development has proved the doomsayers wrong.
Meanwhile, China is putting forth efforts to use innovation to support and lead economic structural improvements and upgrades. Innovation is the motive force for adjusting and upgrading the economic structure. The government aims to make innovation the core of China's development endeavors, promote the full integration of science and technology with economic and social development, and elevate China's industries to a high level in the global value chain.
Deepening reform is the top priority for the Chinese government
The Chinese government has determined that the process of comprehensively deepening reform will be completed in seven years, and 2014 marks the first year. Reform is the primary theme of the government's agenda this year, with economic reform in particular being the paramount task. The direction of many reforms has been made clear and the measures have been readied for implementation. They can be divided into three categories. Those pertaining to the economy include streamlining administration and delegating power to lower levels, tax reform, financial reform and accelerating economic transformation. Those relating to social development and management include advancing urbanization, improving people's well-being and reforming the household registration system. Finally, reform in ecological progress comprises measures to advance the transformation of energy production and consumption.
China's reform used to be led by the government, but future reform will be a revolution imposed by the government on itself. This will be a painful process, which will call for not only great determination, but also great political wisdom. This year's reform measures are aimed at ensuring stable economic growth and avoiding unnecessary risks. Therefore, they must facilitate economic growth.
China's measures of comprehensive reform are also good news for the world economy. Because the fortunes of the Chinese economy are so incredibly linked with those of the global economy, sound economic and social development in China will bring opportunities to the wider world.
o Yuan Guisen is the ambassador of the People's Republic of China to The Bahamas.

Beautiful bronze for Joanna Evans

Despite swimming in the morning session, Joanna Evans turned in the type of performance in the females' 800 meters (m) freestyle timed final yesterday that will forever linger in the minds of Bahamians and which will indeed be etched into the history books as one of the all-time great swims by a Bahamian athlete.
The 17-year-old junior swimmer swam a new lifetime best, by almost two seconds, to finish second in her morning heat and third overall in the event at the second Youth OIympic Games in Nanjing, China. In so doing, she secured the bronze medal, just the third ever global medal for The Bahamas in swimming, and the first ever in any Olympic event. Jeremy Knowles won a bronze medal in the men's 200m fly at the 2003 World University Games, and Arianna Vanderpool-Wallace delivered a bronze in the women's 50m free at the 2010 World Short Course Swimming Championships.
The Youth Olympics, which encompasses athletes from ages 14 to 18, is just two editions old, and already a swimmer has broken through for the country. Tynia Gaither was the country's first medalist at the Youth Olympics with her silver medal in the women's 200m in athletics in 2010; now Evans is the second.
Additionally, her splendid time of 8:39.75 represents two new national records. She reached the half-way mark in 4:17.11 for a new national record in the 400m free, and then finished up in 8:39.75 for a new national record in the 800m free. The old 800m free national record of 8:41.39 was swum at the 20th Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland, and Evans' old national mark of 4:17.29, in the 400m free, was done at the CARIFTA trials this year.
As for her morning swim at the Nanjing OSC Natatorium, the Bahamian youngster trailed Italian Simona Quadarella to the wall. Quadarella posted a time of 8:35.39, which turned out to be good enough for the gold medal. Both she and Evans had to wait around for the evening heat to see if their times would be good enough to hold up. Jimena Perez, of Spain, came from the evening session and was the eventual silver medalist; she swam a time of 8:36.95.
Evans' time was good enough to hold on for the bronze medal. Vien Nguyen Thi Anh, from Vietnam, who swam in the evening session, finished fourth overall in 8:41.13.
Swim Coach Andy Loveitt said through email that it felt strange having Evans next to his side, along with the other members of the swim team, watching the evening heat of the women's 800m free and nervously going through the splits of the various swimmers to see if Evans' time would hold up. It did!
"All of us [were] getting excited," said Loveitt from Nanjing. "Unbelievable...not sunk in yet."
Locally, Evans is a member of the Swift Swimming Club.
Indeed, her swim yesterday morning is a history-making feat for The Bahamas and a breakthrough for swimming in the country in general.
"We're all very excited and very happy," said Swift Head Coach Andy Knowles yesterday. "With this bronze medal and that time, she'll have a lot of colleges pursuing her now. This has been a great year for Swift Swimming and swimming in The Bahamas. Arianna, Joanna, CARIFTA swimming...we have experienced success all around in swimming in this country. We're very happy for Joanna and all of the swimmers at the Youth Olympics. It's pretty cool that Joanna was able to get a medal. We knew that she was going to go out fast, and she did that. I'm sure it was a little nerve-racking for them, sitting at the pool and studying the splits and wondering if she was going to make it through. We're happy that she did, and we want to congratulate her and all of the swimmers at the Youth Olympics. All of them have done their personal best times, and we are hopeful that there will be more personal best times and national records to come."
At the Commonwealth Games in July, the heats of the women's 800m free were held one day, and the final the next. It's done that way at the Olympics as well.
In Nanjing, the format of a timed final for the event was used, and Evans was placed in one of the slower heats in the morning session. She had to wait around after placing second in her heat, not knowing what her opponents would do in the evening session. As it turned out, both the gold and bronze medalists, Quadarella and Evans, came from the same heat in the morning session.
The Bahamas Swimming Federation (BSF) sent out a congratulatory email to Evans afterwards, on behalf of all of her family members and friends here in The Bahamas.
Also competing for The Bahamas in Nanjing yesterday, were Paul de Souza in sailing and Justin Roberts and Rasheed Carey in tennis.
In sailing, de Souza continued to slide down the ladder, finishing 21st in the third race of the series, and 26th in the fourth, to fall to 25th overall out of 30 competitors, with 82 points, thereby putting the country's sole sailor at the Youth Olympics out of medal contention unless something drastic happens on the waters of the Jinniu Lake sailing venue in the final seven races of the series.
De Souza sails in the Byte CII Class which consists of international youth boats designed for one person each. De Souza is scheduled to sail in three races of the series today.
Pedro Luiz Marcondes Correa, from Brazil, continues to lead the competition, with 10 total points; Pavle Zivanovic, from Croatia, is second with 26 total points. Rodolfo Pires, from Portugal, rounds out the top three, with 30 total points. Cheok Khoon Bernie Chin, from Singapore, won the third race yesterday, in 39 minutes flat; Scott McKenzie, from the U.S. Virgin Islands, won the fourth race, in 45:36.
In tennis yesterday, Rasheed Carey and his mixed doubles partner, Simona Heinova, of the Czech Republic, defeated the Colombian team of Luis Hernan Valero Zamorano and Maria Fernanda Herazo Gonzalez, in straight sets, 6-3 and 6-2. They will play again on Thursday, taking on the South Korean team of Duckhee Lee and Dabin Kim who upset the third seeded team of Petros Chrysochos, from Cyprus, and Iryna Shymanovich, from Belarus, in their opening round match.
Meanwhile, the Youth Olympic Games experience is over for Bahamian Justin Roberts and his mixed doubles partner Renata Zarazua Ruckstuhl, from Mexico. They lost to the second seeded team of Russians Karen Khachanov and Anastasiya Komardina in their opening round match, 6-4 and 6-2.
A total of 37 countries are represented in both genders in the tennis competition which is being played on the hard courts of the Tennis Academy of China.

De Souza 18th after first two races at Youth Olympics

The Bahamas' sole sailor at the second Youth Olympics in Nanjing, China, finds himself quite a distance behind after two of the series races in the Byte CII Class (male's one person dinghy).

Paul de Souza was 11th in the first race yesterday, but faded to 24th in the second to put himself out of early contention. After two races in the 11-race series, he is 18th overall out of 30 competitors, with 35 total points. He finds himself 30 points behind the leader.

The early leader, Pedro Luiz Marcondes Correa, from Brazil, finished first in the opening race and was fourth in the second race, for five points after the first day of sailing. The 16-year-old holds a two-point lead over second place. Angello Guiria, from Peru, is second with seven points, finishing fourth and third in the two races. Justin Vittecoq, from Canada, is in the bronze medal position with 13 total points, finishing second and 11th in the two races thus far. Guiria and Vittecoq are just 15 and 14 years old, respectively.

The wind was blowing at five knots in the first race and eight knots in the second race.

After a respectable showing in the first race, de Souza, 16, struggled in the second race. Marcondes Correa took the first race in 40:45, and 16-year-old Asri Azman, from Malaysia, claimed the second race in 47:42.

The next three races in the series will take place today at the Jinniu Lake sailing venue in Nanjing.

Also seeing action for The Bahamas yesterday was the tennis tandem of Justin Roberts and Rasheed Carey.

Matched up against the top seeded team of Russians Karen Khachanov and Andrey Rublev in the first round of the boys' doubles competition, the Bahamian duo knew that they had their work cut out for them. Unfortunately, they were outclassed by the Russians, falling 6-1 and 6-3. The match lasted just 53 minutes.

The sporting discipline of tennis is being played on the hard courts of the Tennis Academy of China in Nanjing.

Roberts and Carey will be back in action today, this time playing in mixed doubles.

Roberts will team up with Renata Zarazua Ruckstuhl, from Mexico, in the mixed doubles competition, and they will take on the second seeded team of Russians Karen Khachanov and Anastasiya Komardina in their opening round match. They will play the fourth match on court two, scheduled for around 6:30 a.m. today Eastern Standard Time (EST).

Carey is scheduled to play around the same time. He and his mixed doubles partner, Simona Heinova, of the Czech Republic, will take on the Colombian team of Luis Hernan Valero Zamorano and Maria Fernanda Herazo Gonzalez, in their opening round match. They will play the fourth match on court eight. A total of 37 countries are represented in both genders in the tennis competition.

In swimming, Joanna Evans swam in a timed final of the women's 800 meters (m) freestyle early this morning in Nanjing, late last night here in The Bahamas. The result was unavailable up to press time. Evans went into the event with the 15th fastest qualifying time among 27 athletes. The final heat of the timed final is set for 6 a.m. today EST. All of the swimming events are taking place at the Nanjing OSC Natatorium.

The athletics segment of the games gets underway on Wednesday.

Overall, about 3,800 athletes between the ages of 14 and 18 years, from 204 countries, are competing in 28 sporting disciplines in Nanjing.
