(Image: Nelson Mandela Foundation)Captain Aaron Mokoena introduced Mandela to the Bafana team, including coach Carlos Alberto Parreira and the technical and management staff.Presenting 1.98-metre-tall defender Matthew Booth, Mokoena said to Mandela: “This the tallest man in the building.” Mandela is 1.94 metres tall.Mandela will turn 92 on 18 July – a date the United Nations has declared International Nelson Mandela Day.On that day people throughout the world are urged to give at least 67 minutes of their time to do good work, honouring the 67 years that Mandela dedicated to make South Africa and the world a better place.Taking inspiration from the ex-president himself, the Nelson Mandela Foundation said it fully supports South Africa’s Fly the Flag and Football Fridays campaigns, which encourage the country’s people to fly the national flag and wear football jerseys at the end of the working week to get into the spirit of the 2010 Fifa World Cup.“We hope that all South Africans will wear their football shirts tomorrow [4 June] for the last official Football Friday,” said Sophie Masipa, marketing manager for the International Marketing Council of South Africa.MEDIA CONTACTS• Nelson Mandela Foundation+27 11 547 [email protected]last_img read more

UE gets fired up after Adamson coach rests starters in first set

first_imgMOST READ Adamson head coach Air Padda had good intentions when she opted to not include Jema Galanza, Eli Soyud, and Chiara Permentilla in her starting lineup against University of the East in the UAAP Season 80 women’s volleyball tournament.ADVERTISEMENT John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

WBNS stops student radio

The estimated 200 listeners of The Underground’s webcast of Ohio State football games might have to turn to other means of media to cheer on the Buckeyes this season.Steve Snapp, the OSU sports information director, told Aaron Stollar, director of the sports department at the Underground, to cease broadcasts of the games immediately. Stollar was told that WBNS – The Fan 1460 AM and 97.1 FM – has an exclusive $1.5 million deal for the rights to broadcast football games.The Underground had been offering a completely free webcast of the games, while WBNS’s service charges a monthly fee through the athletic department’s Web site. Both Snapp and Director of Athletics Andy Geiger denied that there is a charge for the service, Stollar said.Stollar admitted The Underground is technically in violation of the contract signed by WBNS, but that everyone at its station thought the games could still be broadcasted without a problem.“I guess The Fan sees our 150-200 viewers a week as a threat,” Stollar said.Scott Barthelmas, who announces OSU games along with Stollar every Saturday, calls the ordeal an “odd situation.”“We’ve been doing this a long time, and the communication from the athletic department has not been clear,” he said.Ruth Gerstner from Student Affairs said she was surprised the Underground had been allowed to broadcast games. She said anything other than the WBNS broadcast would be violating the contract made by the athletic department and WBNS, which holds exclusive rights to the games.The athletic department gave The Underground $3,000 in August in order to ensure the broadcast capabilities of the station. The Underground broadcasts many Ohio State sports, including football.In an article which appeared in the Oct. 3 issue of The Lantern, Snapp said it was important for students to hear a wide variety of games from the perspective of other OSU students. He also said Geiger wanted to assist the troubled organization so it could continue broadcasting games.“Student affairs tells us to be more visible, and get our name out there and advertise, and then we get shut down,” Stollar said.Barthelmas and Stollar both said they might be able to solve the issue and keep broadcasting the games on Saturdays, but they might need some help from Geiger, whom Stollar said is on their side.Numerous phone calls to Snapp and Geiger were not returned.“Nothing is final as of yet,” Stollar said. “This could still be worked out.” read more

Opinion March Madness doesnt always represent college basketballs best

Connecticut junior guard Ryan Boatright (11) points to the sky in celebration after the 2014 National Championship April 7 at AT&T Stadium. Connecticut won, 60-54.Courtesy of MCTI absolutely love the NCAA Tournament. Nothing comes close to beating it, in my eyes. The hustle, the close games, the heartbreak and jubilation — it is the ultimate sporting event.But it’s certainly not without its flaws.The Connecticut Huskies defeated the Kentucky Wildcats 60-54 to be crowned National Champions Monday night. But does this really make them top in the country?Obviously this is a massive accomplishment. UConn’s second national title in four years is something most fans can only dream about. But is it fair that surviving the tournament is the sole mark of the nation’s best team?The problem I often have with the tournament is that it is a simple reflection of which teams got hot at the right time. It’s not like that’s not a problem in other sports (look at the New York Giants’ two most recent Super Bowl wins, both of which saw the Giants playing on Wild Card weekend), but the tournament is so much easier to get into than the playoffs in other sports.Look at Ohio State basketball this year. It was a mediocre team, plain and simple. It had no semblance of an offense, no go-to scorer, no interior presence, and seemed to only excel at defending inbound passes.But the Buckeyes easily made the tournament. Dominating their exceptionally weak non-conference schedule and squeezing out a few big conference wins was enough for 25 victories, a lock to get in, despite a 10-8 record in Big Ten play.The Buckeyes didn’t find the magic that UConn did, though, as their season came to a close in their first tournament game against the No. 11-seed Dayton. But what if OSU had figured out how to score late in the season?If the Buckeyes had managed to get hot and make a tournament run, could you really say that a team that lost twice to Penn State was one of the nation’s elite teams? I don’t think anyone could watch its offensive strategy of passing the ball around the perimeter for 30 seconds and argue that.UConn finished the regular season ranked No. 18 in the AP Poll, just four spots better than the Buckeyes. Its season featured some good wins over Florida, Memphis, and Cincinnati, but despite 32 wins, it was still only good enough to earn a No. 7 seed.Kentucky didn’t even finish the season ranked in the AP Poll, although its name can be seen in the “others receiving votes” column.Are these the teams that can be narrowed down as the two best in the country? I realize basketball is more than just stats and polls, and the postseason is what it’s all about, but is it possible that winning the tournament creates an overrated legacy just a little?I’m not saying there’s a better way to determine the season’s champion. But when you look back on this season 10 years from now, will it be easily recognizable that Wichita State didn’t lose a regular season game or Arizona, Florida, and Syracuse spent a combined 15 weeks at No. 1? No, the only thing you will see will be UConn claiming the national title.I am not trying to take away this tremendous accomplishment by the Huskies, but is it right that a few weeks in March and April completely wash out an OK regular season? read more
