South African rowers shine at Olympics

Posted on by

first_img1 August 2012While Chad le Clos grabbed South Africa’s second gold medal in the swimming pool at the 2012 London Olympic Games on Tuesday night, some other South Africans put in good performances on the first two days of the week.The most impressive of those came on Tuesday afternoon from the men’s lightweight fours rowing team of Matthew Brittain, Lawrence Ndlovu, John Smith, James Thompson.They secured a place in the A final after a strong performance over the 2 000 metres distance in very testing, rainy conditions at Eton Dorney.Early goingDenmark, with four-time Olympic medallist and six-time world champion Eskild Ebbesen in their four, started strongly and forged an early lead, with South Africa in second place and world champions, Australia, in third. France, Italy and China filled the following three places.Australia made a move near the halfway mark to edge ahead of South Africa, as the two teams closed the gap on the Danes.Then, with 500 metres remaining, South Africa made a strong push, overhauling the world champions to finish less than a second behind Denmark.Having proved to be one of the six top teams in the world, the crew from Pretoria University has a decent opportunity to add to South Africa’s medal haul on Thursday.FinalApart from the Danes and the Aussies, they’ll be up against hosts Great Britain, Switzerland and the Netherlands in the final.Gideon Louw, competing in the 100 metres freestyle, qualified for the semi-finals with the second-fastest time, a career best 48.29 seconds, despite having the second-slowest starting time out of all the swimmers contesting the event.Unfortunately, in the semis, his start was even worse than in the heats and he faced an uphill battle to make the final.Louw showed great speed to close down some of the ground he had lost at the start, but his time of 48.44 seconds meant he missed out on the title-decider by a single place.Proud exitSouth Africa’s women’s football team, Banyana Banyana, after two defeats, exited the Games proudly after holding Japan to a goalless draw.The Japanese, at number three in the world, were the highest ranked of the teams in South Africa’s pool, which also included world number four Sweden and world number seven Canada.The country’s men’s and women’s hockey teams found the going tough. The men were beaten 6-0 by world number one Australia, while the women fell 4-1 to New Zealand after a disappointing performance.Gideon van Zyl appeared to be well on top of Rustam Orujov of Azerbaijan before losing by ippon in the under-73 kilogram division of the judo competition.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Heavy snowfall shuts highways in Kashmir

Posted on by

first_imgKashmir witnessed an early spell of snowfall this year on Saturday, forcing closure of all three major highways connecting the valley with rest of the country. Air traffic was also stopped.“Moderate to heavy snowfall of 1.5 feet was reported in Kashmir valley, with highest snow formation in upper reaches and passes like Zojila. It’s the fourth time in the past two decades that Kashmir witnessed snowfall in November,” said Sonam Lotus, who heads the meteorological department in Srinagar.The three main highways — Jammu-Srinagar, Poonch-Srinagar and Kargil-Srinagar — were closed, cutting off the valley from the rest of India. The Leh-Manali-Zanskar route was also closed due to the snowfall. Over 100 stranded passengers were rescued from the Mughal Road, connecting the Pir Panjal valley with Srinagar.Air traffic suspended Air traffic was also suspended after snow accumulated on the runway at the airport in capital Srinagar. Seven Srinagar-bound flights were cancelled.Authorities have set up emergency control rooms across the valley “to meet any eventuality”.Srinagar recorded a day temperature of 6.3° Celsius, a dip of 13° from normal, sparking a cold wave. “There will be gradual improvement in the weather from Sunday,” said Mr. Lotus.Snowfall also affected power supply in Srinagar. Chief Engineer of the Power Development Department Hashmat Qazi said the snowfall resulted in trees, with thick foliage, “coming down heavily on electrical lines, damaging most of the 33KV lines.”“A full-fledged restoration work is underway but continuous snowfall has made it very difficult to maintain the lines, resulting in decreased power supply to just 80 MW as against the normal 1150 MW,” he said.Snow brings cheerThere was a wave of cheer among hundreds of locals and domestic tourists, as all hotspot tourist destinations of Gulmarg, Pahalgam and Sonamarg received heavy snowfall.Hundreds of locals uploaded live videos and pictures, as people greeted each other online on the season’s first snowfall. Kashmir has tradition to greet relatives and friends on the first snowfall.Apple crop damagedThe unusually early snowfall has damaged standing harvest of apple in north and south Kashmir. The snow uprooted the fruit-laden trees. Orchardists have appealed to the government to assess the damage in the Valley and “recommend compensation”.“The snow in the Valley looks beautiful as it heralds the arrival of winter but spare a thought for the horticulturalists. Part of the Apple crop is still on the trees, a large part is on the ground waiting sorting and packing and the trees still have leaves,” wrote National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah.last_img read more
