Britain’s Farah defends reputation after Salazar suspension

first_imgBritish Olympic champion Mo Farah defended his reputation at a news conference ahead of the Chicago Marathon on Friday after being bombarded with questions about his former coach Alberto Salazar who has been banned for doping violations.Farah, who has not been accused of any wrongdoing, worked from 2011 to 2017 with Salazar, who was given a four-year ban by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) on Sept. 30.The 36-year-old Farah, speaking for the first time since Salazar was suspended, responded angrily to questions about his former mentor, with whom he achieved some of his best performances.“It’s very disappointing to see you guys going at it again and again, and headlines, ‘Farah, Farah, Farah’,” he said.“I’ll just say there’s no allegation against me. I’ve not done anything wrong.“If I tell you guys and talk to you guys and be nice to you, you’ll still be negative. If I don’t talk to you, you’ll still be negative.“I’m aware I can’t win. You’re already made up your mind what you’re going to write –- that is a fact.”Asked if he regretted staying with Salazar, particularly after a 2015 BBC documentary made a series of allegations against the American, Farah said he had confronted his coach.“I was out in Birmingham (England) racing, I pulled out (of) the race in 2015,” he told reporters. “I wanted some answers and I flew to Portland to get some answers from Alberto.“Talked to him face-to-face and he assured me at the time, ‘These are just allegations. This is not true. There are no allegations against you, Mo.’ He promised me. And that hasn’t been true.”FARAH UNAWAREFarah, who won Olympic gold in the 5,000 and 10,000 metres at the 2012 and 2016 Games, said he was unaware until after the ban was announced that Salazar was charged with doping in 2017.Salazar has denied any wrongdoing and said he plans to appeal against the suspension.Defending Chicago marathon champion Farah and 2017 winner American Galen Rupp plus women’s marathon runner Jordan Hasay are among Salazar’s most decorated athletes.Nike announced on Thursday that it would shut down the Nike Oregon Project, the elite programme overseen by Salazar, where Rupp and Hasay trained.Neither Rupp nor Hasay has been accused of any wrongdoing.The 33-year-old Rupp, who missed the Spring marathon season due to surgery, deflected questions about Salazar, saying he had had no “professional” contact with his long-time coach since the announcement of the suspension.Hasay, who like Rupp was coached by Salazar until the suspension, said she was “very, very close” to her coach and it was hard not speaking with him in the days before Sunday’s race.“I trust what I know and what I’ve seen and I’ve never been offered anything or seen anything,” Hasay said. “If that were to happen I would have left long ago.”In the days leading up to the Chicago Marathon, race director Carey Pinkowski said he viewed the Salazar announcement as “an opportunity to move forward”.Paula Radcliffe, a Nike ambassador who holds the world record for the women’s marathon, told Reuters the sport still needed to work to clean up competition.“My issue is this isn’t the battle won,” she said. “This is the battle far from won.”last_img read more

Wenger faces new quit calls after Palace loss

first_img0Shares0000Arsenal fans subjected manager Arsene Wenger (R) to a stream of abuse and calls to resign as the team lost to Crystal Palace © AFP / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 11 – Arsene Wenger faces renewed calls to resign after Arsenal’s miserable season spiralled out of control with furious fans turning on his flops during their humiliating 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace.Wenger’s side hit a new low on a chastening evening in south London as struggling Palace condemned the shambolic Gunners to their heaviest Premier League defeat of the season. Wenger’s side have lost four successive away league games for the first time in his 21-year reign as manager.Goals from Andros Townsend, Yohan Cabaye and Luka Milivojevic gave Palace their first home win over Arsenal since 1979 and left Wenger in turmoil after his team’s fifth defeat in their last eight league games.With many Arsenal supporters again demanding Wenger resign, the toxic atmosphere around the north Londoners boiled over as fans refused to give the ball back to Gunners right-back Hector Bellerin when it went into the away section in the second half.Instead, they berated Bellerin and his team-mates with chants of “you’re not fit to wear the shirt”, with the Spaniard having to be consoled by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain when he was jeered again at the final whistle.Wenger and his squad were targeted for more abuse when they made their way from the dressing room to the team bus. Arsenal’s shocking surrender leaves them in sixth place, lagging seven points behind fourth placed Manchester City.With Wenger’s record of leading Arsenal into the Champions League for 19 consecutive years in severe danger, the beleaguered Frenchman acknowledged he has to find a way to avoid the mutinous mood wrecking what may yet prove to be his final season in charge.“I want the fans to support the team, but I can understand they are extremely frustrated, like we all are,” Wenger said.“We came with the desire to win the game, but in the decisive moments of the game Palace were sharper.“To see us lose in that way is disappointing. It’s part of my job to build the confidence. We have a week to do it. it’s our job. we will try to do it.”– ‘Massive night’ for Palace –Faced with the prospect of missing out on the Champions League for the first time since 1997, Wenger has hardly helped his cause by refusing to confirm if he will sign an extension to the contract which runs out at the end of the season.The uncertainty over his future has been a major distraction for a team lacking the fighting spirit required to cope with adversity.Wenger conceded Arsenal’s chances of making the Champions League via a top-four finish look bleak, but he refused to be drawn on whether or not he will stay.“I think it will be very difficult certainly,” he said. “I don’t want to speak about me tonight. I’m not in the mood.“At the moment I pay more respect to the fact we had a disappointing result.”Looking shell-shocked and far less defiant than he often is at such downbeat moments, Wenger must have been devastated by the way the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott went missing when he needed them most.Arsenal legend Ian Wright claimed Wenger has lost the support of his players and even the Gunners boss admitted Palace had shown more passion.“They were sharper and more decisive than us,” he said. “In the second half they came out strong and scored again.“After that it was more difficult. “I don’t say the players gave up. For a long time we were unbeaten away but since we lost a few we don’t have the confidence. “You could sense it had an impact on us after the second goal.”Palace moved six points clear of the bottom three and boss Sam Allardyce hailed a magical 10 days that also included a win at leaders Chelsea.“One or two more results and we should be safe, but it’s a massive night for everybody, and a huge week for us all,” he said.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

4 charged in sales of body parts of corpses

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant “I think we can agree that the conduct uncovered in this case is among the most ghastly imaginable,” said Rose Gill Hearn, commissioner of the city Department of Investigation. “It was shockingly callous in its disregard for the sanctity of human remains.” Michael Mastromarino, owner of Biomedical Tissue Services of Fort Lee, N.J., was charged along with Brooklyn funeral home owner Joseph Nicelli. Mastromarino was an oral surgeon who went into the tissue business after losing his dentist license, prosecutors said. NEW YORK – The owner of a biomedical supply house was charged along with three other men Thursday with secretly carving up corpses and selling the parts for use in transplants across the country. The case was “like something out of a cheap horror movie,” Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes said. Prosecutors said the defendants obtained the bodies from funeral parlors in three states and forged death certificates and organ donor consent forms to make it look as if the bones, skin, tendons, heart valves and other tissue were legally removed. The defendants made millions of dollars from the scheme, prosecutors said. The indictment was the first set of charges to come out of a widening scandal involving scores of funeral homes and hundreds of bodies, including that of “Masterpiece Theatre” host Alistair Cooke, who died in 2004. The investigation has raised fears that some of the body parts could spread disease to transplant recipients. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Medical Matters: How to treat fungal nail infections

first_imgContinuing his popular Medical Matters Column, this week Dr Roarty of Scally McDaid Roarty Medical Practice looks at the problem of Fungal Nail Infections. Fungal infections of the nails are quite common particularly in older people and younger swimmers and athletes who may share showers. It more commonly affects toenails and is often caused by the spread of a fungal skin infection eg Athlete’s foot.Fingernail infections can occur from scratching itchy toes which have a fungal infection, or if you wash your hands a lot in hot water, damaging the protective skin at the base of the nail. Damage to a toenail or an underlying medical condition such as Diabetes, general ill health or problems with the immune system may also predispose to this infection. Smoking is also a risk factorSymptomsThis is usually a painless condition where the nail looks thickened and discoloured. Sometimes the nail may come away from the underlying nail bed and either crumble away or totally dislodge. The skin surrounding the nail may also become inflamed and scaly. What tests are required? Your doctor may arrange for nail clippings to be sent to the lab to confirm the diagnosis and distinguish from other conditions which may look similar. What is the treatment?If the infection is mild or not causing any problems, some patients may opt for no treatment as treatment has a cure rate of between 60-80 % and it may not necessarily restore the appearance of the nail to exactly as it was before. However, if the symptoms are troublesome or bothering you, or you have diabetes, vascular disease or an underlying problem with your immune system it may be recommended to go ahead with treatment.Antifungal tablets are often prescribed and your doctor may request you to take a blood test first. They are taken for a few months but generally, an improvement is noted after about a month. If not, discuss with your doctor as there may be other underlying problems. Antifungal nail paint is also used as an alternative but is sometimes not as effective as oral medication. If these options have failed, nail removal under local anaesthetic can be considered along with anti-fungal treatment.As treatment with medication progresses you will see the healthy nail growing from the base again and the damaged nail growing out and slowly being clipped away. It may take a number of months to be completely cured and fingernails tend to grow and therefore clear quicker. It is important to not stop taking the medication without discussing with your doctor. It is also important to keep your nails trimmed regularly and file down any thickened nail. Do not share scissors or nail clippers and try to avoid injury to the nails. If toenails are affected it is important to wear properly fitted shoes. You should treat athletes foot promptly as this may cause a reinfection of your toenails otherwise.The above information is intended as advice only and should you have any concerns please contact your own Doctor.
