Nigeria defender, Wilfred Ndidi, has said he was not satisfied with the Leicester City final position on the Premier League table, saying it was a great experience after all. The Super Eagles player who was rated as the best tackler in the week-long series appreciated the Foxes fans across the world for staying behind the team even throughout the Covid-19 lockdown. In the just-concluded season, Ndidi made 129 successful tackles alongside Wan-Bissaka, while Pereira garnered 119 tackles. Since his move from Belgian top-flight side Genk, the 23-year-old has been outstanding for the Foxes in the English elite division. read also:Ndidi, Iheanacho miss out on Champions League spot, as Leicester City bow to Man Utd In his first season, the Super Eagles star topped the tacklers’ chart with 138 successes and in the process was named as Leicester City’s Young Player of the Year for the 2017/18 season. He repeated that feat the following season after garnering 144 tackles ahead of Idrissa Gueye (143) and Wan-Bissaka (128) – making history by becoming the first player to lead the top of tackle charts for two consecutive seasons.

But overall. It was a great season!!

IN ITS bid to bring more awareness to the issue of doping in sports, the Guyana Olympics Association (GOA), which has been hosting anti-doping education sessions every Saturday for the past five weeks, yesterday held a special session for media operatives at Olympic House on High Street.The sessions are part of a continuous effort to get all stakeholders in the sports arena involved in the fight against doping in Guyana, even as the one-year ban on Guyanese cyclist Alanzo Greaves is about to end in November.The sessions are being conducted by Doping Control Officer (DCO) Charles Corbin and Guyana’s Caribbean (Regional Anti-Doping Organisation (RADO) Board member Dr Karen Pilgrim, and include informative segments such as ‘What is Doping’, ‘Why Athletes Dope’, ‘Why Doping is Banned’ and the ‘Challenges faced in bringing about Anti-Doping Awareness’.Persons attending the sessions are also given a walkthrough of how the doping tests are conducted and the rights that athletes have when a test is being conducted on them.Doping tests are carried out on urine samples taken from the athlete in the presence of a chaperone or DCO. The athletes themselves deposit and seal the containers in which the sample is transported to the lab where the tests are conducted. The samples are marked by a number and no information about the athlete is known to those who conduct the test..Guyana currently has four DCOs certified to conduct doping tests. Apart from Pilgrim and Corbin, there are Dr Clive Bowman and Dr Navin Rambarran. Doping tests can be conducted in and out of competition, and is usually conducted on all national teams leaving Guyana to participate internationally.Thus far, Pilgrim noted a total of 90 persons from varying sporting disciplines across Guyana have attended the workshops on Saturdays, where two sessions are held – one at 11:00hrs and another at 12:30hrs.Each session lasts only one hour. Pilgrim noted that some sports fraternities have been more responsive than others, but in the effort to ensure awareness is as widespread as possible, the sessions will continue as long as is necessary.Though the cases of doping in Guyana are few and far between, it has always been the opinion that more awareness and education needed to be done since ignorance of the law is no excuse; so athletes taking banned substances unknowingly will not be spared. Greaves was handed down the ban, which runs from November 1, 2015 to November 1, 2016, by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), after one of his urine samples tested positive for testosterone, a well-known banned substance.Greaves case followed that of Gumendra ‘The Golden Boy’ Shewdas, Guyana’s first Under-18 Sub-Junior World Powerlifting gold medallist, who in January 2014 was banned by the International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) after failing an in-competition doping control test conducted in August 2013.
Kobe Bryant (right shoulder), Nick Young (left knee) and Julius Randle (right leg) all sat on the bench wearing sharp suits, representing how the team’s top players remain out with injuries. • RELATED: Julius Randle is trying to learn as much as he can“My job is to go out there and coach these guys to the best of my ability,” Scott said. “Whatever happens after that happens.” Scott drew from past experience on why he insists in not worrying about lottery odds. His 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers finished with the league’s second-worst record, but still netted the No. 1 pick that snagged them Kyrie Irving. It remains to be seen if the Lakers can receive the same prize. But Scott said he has focused more on the team’s current roster, most notably rookie guard Jordan Clarkson. His 18-point performance on 7-of-9 shooting and 10 assists against New Orleans represented the latest reason why Scott believes he belongs on the NBA’s all-rookie team. Clarkson entered the Lakers’ loss to New Orleans averaging a team-leading 14.9 points, 4.5 assists and 4.1 rebounds through 30 starts. Clarkson also made late-game shots that secured wins this past week in Minnesota and Philadelphia. “He’s a kid who’s trying to prove himself every single night,” Scott said. “He has that toughness about him mentally as well as physically. That helps him do some of the things he’s been able to do this year.”• RELATED: Pelican’s player recalls Kobe Bryant’s dunk that led to season-ending injuryYet, Scott only rolled his eyes that the focus on the Lakers’ rebuilding involves more worry about ping-pong balls than individual performances. Things returned to normal for the Lakers, which in this bizarre 2014-15 season means something that does not involve championship parades, popped champagne bottles and confetti dropping from the rafters.Instead, the Lakers lost, 113-92, to the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday at Staples Center, a development that at least a segment of the purple and gold fanbase actually wants.The more the Lakers lose, the better their chances at retaining their top-five pick otherwise owed to Philadelphia as part of the Steve Nash deal. Yet, the Lakers (20-54) may have compromised that position by collecting two wins within about a week against the Sixers (18-58), who still hold a lead for the NBA’s third-worst record. The Lakers also only have a slight cushion over the Orlando Magic (22-53) for the league’s fourth-worst record.• WHICKER: Trying to win by trying to lose is dumb Consider the differences the Lakers have in retaining their top-five pick by finishing either fifth (55.3 percent), fourth (82.8 percent), or third worst (96 percent). “Our players are competitors and professionals,” Lakers coach Byron Scott said. “For fans that think we’re just going to try to lose games on purpose, that’s not going to happen.”Instead, they will just happen in a different way.The Lakers will lose because they will have no answer for a top opponent, including the Pelicans (40-34). New Orleans’ Anthony Davis (20 points), Norris Cole (17), Tyreke Evans (16), Ryan Anderson (13), Ryan Anderson (13) and Quincy Pondexter (10) all notched double-figures.The Lakers will also lose by resting established veterans for the sake of developing younger talent. Lakers forward Ed Davis sat his third consecutive game, while rookie center Tarik Black posted 16 points on 8-of-10 shooting. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
