At a time everything had fallen apart for Team Nigeria in track and field, Brume came with a big surprise, jumping her personal best mark of 6.81m to challenge for a medal, although it was not enough to get her on the podium. No one gave her a chance of making it to the final.She arrived the country three days ago, and yesterday in Lagos, the owner of FROT Group, an energy and construction company based in Lekki, Lagos, decided to honour the athlete and her coach Kayode Yaya.Apart from getting them cash reward for doing the nation proud in Rio, the FROT Group boss, Frank Momoh promised to give Brume the assistant she will need to make the podium in Tokyo 2020.Last weekend, Momoh had rolled out a red carpet for Nigeria’s table tennis stars, Aruna Quadri, Segun Toriola, Funke Oshonaike and other members of the table tennis team to the Rio Olympics in a welcome dinner, which took place at Wheatbaker hotel, Ikoyi, Lagos.At that occasion, Momoh doled out N1million to Aruna Quadri, N500,000 for Toriola, while and Funke Oshonaike and other members of the team got N1 million.But yesterday, Momoh gave Brume and her coach the sum of N200,000, a gesture the athlete and her coach Yaya described as remarkable.“I don’t know how to express our gratitude to FROT Group,” Brume told journalists yesterday. “This is a man I have not met before in my entire life. I returned from Rio three days ago and he sent for me and my coach to see him in his office. Apart from giving us N100,000 cash each, he has told us to prepare a programme for my training for Tokyo 2020 Olympics and that he will help me in whatever way. I can’t believe we still have this type of people in this part of the world. I am really grateful and I pray God to help me actualise my dream of making it to the podium in Tokyo 2020. That is the only way I can pay back to Mr. Frank Momoh in particular and the management of FROT Group,” Brume stated.On his part, coach Yaya said that the gesture by Frank Momoh would go a long way in motivating Brume, not only ahead Tokyo 2020 Olympics, but other major competitions like the Commonwealth Games, African championship and the IAAF World Athletics Championship. He called on other Nigerians and corporate organisations to emulate the FROT Group boss, Momoh.In the past three years, Frank Momoh had displayed to many Nigerians his philanthropist attitude, especially for sports men and women. He had been providing financial support for Nigerian sports, including football, table tennis and wheelchair basketball at state and national levels. He has just added athletics.During the preparation for the Rio Olympics, Momoh played the ‘big brother’s role’ by providing financial support for the duo of Aruna Quadri and Segun Toriola.In Rio, Quadri made history by beating his world-rated German opponent, Boll Timo, 4-2 to seal a historic berth in the quarterfinals of men’s single table tennis event, the first African to reach that level at the Games. Impressed by the Quadri’s performance, Momoh announced a cash prize of $2,500 for him, which he redeemed last weekend.For the long jumper Ese Brume, she will be quite happy how 2016 has been for her She won the African long jump title in Durban, South Africa and also set a new PB of 6.83m at the Akure Golden League.Part of the things Brume wants to prepare herself for Tokyo 2020 Olympics is a well equip gymnasium, funding for IAAF sanctioned competitions, among others.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Nigeria’s female long jumper, Ese Brume reaped her reward for hard work yesterday in Lagos, after emerging the country’s best track and field athlete at the just concluded Rio Olympic Games.Brume, who graduated from the junior cadre to the senior team two years ago in Glasgow, Scotland, where she won the long jump gold medal at the Commonwealth Games, was again the cynosure of all eyes at the Rio Olympics, finishing 5th in the women’s long jump final. She was the only Nigerian individual athlete to reach the final in Rio.

Published on September 12, 2017 at 11:29 pm Contact Josh: email@example.com | @Schafer_44 UPDATED: Sept. 13, 2017 at 12:22 a.m.When a team leads the nation in red cards, it’s constantly forced to adjust. On Tuesday against Oregon State, carryover from red card trouble forced Syracuse to learn to play without its second-leading player in points. No. 7 Syracuse (4-0-2, 0-0-1 Atlantic Coast) looked disjointed at times without Johannes Pieles, but SU’s offense adjusted to carry the team on a night when it was not its best. But, in the end, the Orange hit its magic number and beat Oregon State (2-4-0), 3-2, on Tuesday night at SU Soccer Stadium. The win is Syracuse’s 58th straight when scoring three goals, but this one didn’t come as clean as some of the others. “We looked for stretches of the first half like it was a mid-week Tuesday game and we had just gotten out of biology lab,” said SU head coach Ian McIntyre. With Pieles out, Petter Stangeland, a freshman forward from Norway, made his first career start. His inexperience showed. Stangeland held onto the ball too long. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textEarly in the first half, he had teammates offering help on either side, but he opted to challenge the defender himself. The take failed and Oregon State regained possession. Moments later, Stangeland found himself with no one but Oregon State goalkeeper Ryan Vincent in front of him. But, as the crowd perked up, the line judge raised his flag and the ball was given back to Oregon State.That’s how much of the first half went for Syracuse. The offense, which averages over two goals per game, mustered one shot in the first half to Oregon State’s six.“It was a very scrappy game,” sophomore midfielder Mo Adams said. “It wasn’t really a great soccer match.”But then something clicked. The field opened up and the Syracuse players who hadn’t previously seen much playing time began not to show it. It started with Mamadou Balde. The senior transfer, who hasn’t started a game since the second game of the season, gathered a loose ball at the top of the box. He faked left and then pressed right as the OSU defender slid to the ground. The two clanked ankles as the referee awarded Balde a penalty kick. Kamal Miller crushed the ball into the back right of the night for his first goal of the season, and, for SU, its first lead of the match.“We started to move the ball faster, opened it up for each other and communicated more,” Balde said. “As our bodies warmed up we started to relax and pass it faster.” Stangeland found his footing as well. He played a deep volley from goalkeeper Hendrik Hilpert through to Tajon Buchanan. The forward worked his way in before earning a corner kick. The first attempt was sent directly back at inserter Hugo Delhommelle. The second traveled near post before deflecting out of bounds off the foot of Syracuse defender John-Austin Ricks. The result wasn’t important. The opportunity was one that didn’t come in a first half, where Syracuse failed to earn a corner kick. In the second half, it earned seven. On the final one, Delhommelle fired the ball near post once again. Ricks again deflected the ball, this time with his head and the ball bounced off an Oregon State defender for a corner-kick goal. It was Syracuse’s first of the season. “Coach makes these changes for the team,” Adams said. “Not for individuals to have their spark in the game. To kind of be compact and get the result and that’s what we did.”CORRECTION: In a previous version of this post, Mo Adams’ position was misstated. Adams is a midfielder. The Daily Orange regrets this error. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
Nigel Hayes will have lofty expectations to fulfill this season.Hayes, a men’s basketball junior forward, earned preseason All-American honors Monday from Sporting News.In his first two seasons at University of Wisconsin, Hayes shared the spotlight with formidable players like Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker, who are now in the NBA. He still managed an impressive stat line, averaging 12.4 points per game and 6.2 rebounds per game.Prior to last season, Dekker (second-team) and Kaminsky (third-team) were also named to Sporting News’ All-American squads.Hayes shot 49.7 percent from the field and went 40-of-101 (39.6 percent) from three-point range. Hayes also flourished on the defensive end of the court last season, leading the Badgers in steals (34) and finishing third in blocks (16).But in 2015-16, Hayes will be one of the few upperclassmen on a young Badger squad. He will have plenty of experience, with this season coming on the heels of back-to-back Final Four runs and a 2015 outright Big Ten Championship.Also named to the preseason All-American team were Ron Baker (Wichita State), Malcolm Brogdon (Virginia), Georges Niang (Iowa State) and Marcus Paige (North Carolina).

Jets defensive end Henry Anderson is not apologizing for his hit on Steven Hauschka, which ended up injuring the Bills kicker.Hauschka has been sitting out practice this week due to the hip injury he suffered as a result of Anderson knocking the kicker to the ground on a blind-side hit during Sunday’s game in Buffalo. Henry Andersen just obliterated Stephen Hauschka #Jets pic.twitter.com/dX92S19FYZ— Rob Taub (@RTaub_) December 9, 2018″There’s no place in football for it,” Bills coach Sean McDermott said of the hit earlier in the week. “He’s like a quarterback, you know he gets hit in the back — any player that gets hit in the back — should be a foul, and then he’s a kicker. To me, he’s afforded the protection. It’s a shame he took the hit that he did.”It thought it should have been called. They didn’t see it obviously. He’s a little sore today. We’ll see how he feels when he comes back tomorrow.”Speaking to former Colts punter Pat McAfee on his show’s segment “Attempted Murder of a Kicker,” Anderson defended his actions.”When the guy who picked up the fumble reversed field, (Hauschka) started angling toward the ball carrier and started positioning himself,” Anderson said. “He wasn’t in a dead sprint or anything, but he was working his way to cut him off and to try to make the tackle. I saw that, and I know as a defensive player, the defensive coaches always tell you that the kickers are kind of under the same umbrella as quarterbacks. If they are trying to stay out of the play, you’re not supposed to tough them because they are protected by the rules. If they start making their way and positioning themselves to make a play on the ball, they are fair game and you can hit them.”He almost slide-tackled one of our kick returners earlier in the game. If I don’t make a block there and he ends up somehow making that tackle then I’m going to get chewed out by (special teams coach) Brant Boyer. I figured that I would rather hit the kicker legally and within the rulebook then not hit him at all and potentially get chewed out by our special teams coach. I didn’t hit him helmet to helmet, I didn’t lower my head and spear him, I didn’t launch my body at him. I put my shoulder into him and extended my arms into him.” Good morning beautiful people.. Today’s the perfect day to laugh more, hate less..work hard, & cash checksLet’s seek some truth as well. Today’s podcast has a full court case for @HenryAnderson91 #ForTheBrandListen~> https://t.co/8hnm947Au1Watch~> https://t.co/aa46dNu0Dl pic.twitter.com/R9u3u80kJd— Pat McAfee (@PatMcAfeeShow) December 11, 2018Hauschka’s wife, Lindsey, didn’t appreciate the segment on McAfee’s show.This led to a brief discussion between her and McAfee regarding the hit and her husband’s injury.This is everything that’s wrong with football. Laughing about seriously injuring another human being is disgusting. @HenryAnderson91 & @PatMcAfeeShow should be ashamed. https://t.co/CofL1hXYj2— Lindsey Hauschka (@lindseyhauschka) December 11, 2018Idk… i guess the humor is lost on me while I watch my husband barely be able to walk and spend his one off day getting treatment to try to play on Sunday instead of home with our son 🤷🏼♀️ super cool that you and @HenryAnderson91 are such tight bros tho!— Lindsey Hauschka (@lindseyhauschka) December 11, 2018Hauschka sat out practice again Wednesday, but McDermott told reporters the team feels confident the kicker will be ready to play against the Lions on Sunday.
Edinson Cavani scored two superb goals as Uruguay beat Portugal to set up a World Cup quarter-final meeting with France.Defeat for the European champions finished Cristiano Ronaldo’s hopes of success in Russia just hours after Lionel Messi and Argentina were knocked out, beaten 4-3 by Les Bleus.This World Cup has not been short of stunning goals and Cavani added another to the collection when he opened the scoring early on, playing a superb one-two with Luis Suarez before thumping home a header from his strike partner’s cross.Uruguay had not conceded a goal at this World Cup before Pepe rose unmarked to nod in an equaliser from close range, prompting a brief spell of dominance for Portugal.But Cavani secured Uruguay’s place in the last eight – and a trip to Nizhny Novgorod to face France on Friday – when he steered a brilliant shot beyond goalkeeper Rui Patricio.The win may have come at a price, though, as Cavani limped off late on.
