Gregan through to semi-finals

first_img “I’m absolutely delighted,” he said. “I’ve had my share of bad luck at major championships and I wasn’t particularly expecting any good luck at these. “I thought I was out initially, but to run that fast that early in the day isn’t easy for me, I’m not really a morning person. “I will be a lot happier running tomorrow evening now in the semis.” The only other Irish athlete in action was Tori Pena in the women’s pole vault. The national record holder went out of the competition at the qualification stage after failing to make 4.55 metres. Ireland’s Brian Gregan secured his place in the 400 metres semi-final at the World Championships in Moscow. The 23-year-old crossed the line in 46.04 seconds, putting him sixth in the second heat. Only the first four in each heat automatically qualified, but Gregan went through as the third of the four fastest losers. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Syracuse earns No. 6 seed in South Bend Region, will face No. 11-seed Chattanooga in 1st round

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 17, 2014 at 7:53 pm Contact Josh: jmhy[email protected] Syracuse (22-9, 10-6 Atlantic Coast) earned a No. 6 seed in the South Bend Region of the NCAA Tournament and will play No. 11-seed Chattanooga on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in Lexington, Ky. The game will be televised on ESPN2.Shortly after the announcement, Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman guaranteed a first-round victory. If Syracuse does defeat Chattanooga (29-3, 18-0 Southern), it will advance to play the winner of No. 3-seed Kentucky and No. 14-seed Wright St. on Monday.“We’re going to win the game,” Hillsman told reporters at the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center. “We’re not going there to lose. I can’t leave here thinking we’re going to lose the basketball game. I don’t think we’re going to lose the game.”Although guards Rachel Coffey and Brittney Sykes admitted they know nothing about the Mocs — other than Sykes knowing they’re from Tennessee — Hillsman said he’s somewhat familiar with Chattanooga and already seemed to have a knowledgeable scouting report.“You got to look back and see why they’re playing well and they’re just a very balanced team,” Hillsman said. “They do a very good job of shooting the ball. They have inside-outside presences and they’re a very good basketball team.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textCoffey said that although she and her teammates don’t know much about their opponent, they’ve got to treat it like any other game, even though they’re playing a No. 11 seed.ACC foe Notre Dame earned the No. 1 seed in the South Bend Region and Baylor was awarded the No. 2 seed.Syracuse will practice Tuesday and Wednesday in Syracuse before heading to Kentucky on Thursday. By Saturday, Hillsman said he’ll have watched 80 percent of Chattanooga’s games.“No sleep,” Hillsman said. “Starbucks and Tim Hortons. I just don’t like not knowing, so I’m going to know. I’m going to know and our team is going to know everything I know. Which is probably going to be bad for them. We’ll be very familiar with them by the time Thursday comes around.”Hillsman said the team is not focused on a potential second-round opponent.“You have to win that first one,” Hillsman said. “We understand that playing Kentucky or Wright State would be a tremendously fast game. That’s all we know.”Because SU hasn’t played since it fell to North Carolina State on March 7 in the quarterfinals of the ACC tournament, it has been able to focus an entire week solely on itself. It will now have five days to focus solely on Chattanooga.Said Hillsman: “We’re ready to play.” Commentslast_img read more

Delhi court sends three separatists to judicial custody till July 12 in terror-funding case

first_imgA Delhi court on Friday sent Kashmiri separatists Shabir Shah, Asiya Andrabi and Masarat Alam Bhat, arrested by the National Investigations Agency (NIA) in connection with a terror-funding case, to judicial custody till July 12. The case relates to the alleged terror-funding in the Valley and involves Jama’at-ud-Da’wah (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed, the 2008 Mumbai terror attack mastermind based in Pakistan. Special Judge Rakesh Syal sent the trio to custody after the NIA did not seek any further custodial interrogation, advocate M.S. Khan, appearing for the accused, told PTI. NIA had arrested the three separatists on July 4 during in-chamber proceedings in the court and the agency was granted 10-day custody of the trio. Shah and Andrabi were already in custody in separate cases, while Alam was earlier brought from Jammu and Kashmir on transit remand where he was lodged in jail for alleged terror activities. NIA had filed a charge-sheet in January 2018 against Saeed, another terror mastermind Syed Salahuddin and 10 Kashmiri separatists in a case of alleged terror funding and secessionist activities in the Valley. While Shah was in judicial custody in a decade-old money laundering case for alleged terror financing, Andrabi was in jail in a case of allegedly waging a war against the country and delivering hate speeches in Jammu and Kashmir. According to the NIA, Shah had received ₹10 lakh from hawala operator Zahoor Ahmad Shah Watal, a co-accused in the case. Besides, the money was also sent to the banned outfit Dukhtaraan-e-Milat of which Andrabi was the chief, NIA had said. The case in which the accused were arrested on July 4 relates to alleged conspiracy to wage a war against the government (Section 121 of Indian Penal Code) by carrying out terrorist and secessionist activities in Jammu and Kashmir. The probe agency has charge-sheeted 12 persons, including Saeed and Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin. Other offences for which the accused were charge-sheeted include those punishable under sections 120-B of IPC (Criminal Conspiracy) and various provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967. Besides Saeed and Salahuddin, the other 10 accused in the final report were – Hurriyat leader Syed Shah Geelani’s son-in-law Altaf Ahmed Shah, Geelani’s personal assistant Bashir Ahmad Bhat, media advisor and strategist of the Hurriyat Conference Aftab Ahmad Shah, secessionist outfit National Front chief Nayeem Ahmad Khan, Chairman of Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (R) Farooq Ahmad Dar, media advisor of Hurriyat Conference (Geelani faction) Mohammad Akbar Khanday, Tehreek-e-Hurriyat official Raja Mehrajuddin Kalwal, hawala operator Zahoor Ahmad Shah Watal and two stone-pelters – Kamran Yusuf and Javed Ahmad Bhat. According to the NIA, the case was registered on May 30, 2017 and the first arrests made on July 24, 2017. Over 300 witnesses were examined during the probe, it has said. The NIA has said the conspiracy was hatched with active support, connivance and funding from terrorist organisations based in Pakistan and its agencies to achieve their objective of secession of the Jammu and Kashmir by waging war against the Indian government.last_img read more
