Largest side girder deck now earning revenue

first_imgFor the transportation of increasingly larger generators and transformers, the vehicle was designed for a maximum payload of up to 620 tonnes and built within a very short time frame.At the end of last year, the first transport of a Siemens transformer took place with the movement of an 870 tonne shipment of Siemens transformer and ancillary equipment from Nuremberg to Wilhelmshaven: the largest major move ever in Wilhelmshaven according to Scheuerle.The two-day move using the STB 1000 began at the Siemens transformer plant in Nuremberg. The transformer was carried on two 14-axle InterCombi trailers. Due to limited space, the transportation out of the Siemens production hall was only made possible by using the additional coupled InterCombi PowerBooster units which meant there was no need for a pushing vehicle. The 100 m long combination was then driven to the Nuremberg heavy load quay.The next day, the 13 m long transformer load was rolled onto a pontoon for the journey along the Rhein-Main-Donau canal to the Netherlands via Dordrecht and Delfzijl. Then after some delays caused by weather, the transportation continued over the North Sea to Wilhelmshaven where the transformer was delivered to the Lüneberg quay.last_img read more

Yoshihide Kiryu is the only other Japanese to break the 10-second barrier, having set a national record of 9.98 seconds in September 2017 by taking 0.02 off the previous mark set by Koji Ito in 1998.“I knew I would reach (a sub-10 second time) sooner or later, so it wasn’t the first thing on my mind,” Sani Brown said.“I was focused on delivering an all-out effort, carrying over everything I’ve learned from practice to the race, and just doing what I have to do.”Born to a Ghanaian father and Japanese mother, Sani Brown attended Josai High School in Tokyo before he enrolled at the University of Florida in the fall of 2017.On Saturday night in Yokohama, the Japanese team of Kiryu, Yuki Koike, Ryota Yamagata and Shuhei Tada was disqualified for messing up the final baton handoff in the men’s 4×100 heats at the IAAF World Relays.The May 11-12 event at Nissan Stadium is a qualification stage for the World Athletics Championships to be held in Doha, Qatar between Sept. 27 and Oct. 6. center_img Yoshihide Kiryu, Florida Gators, Abdul Hakim Sani Brown Abdul Hakim Sani Brown (center) competes during the 100-meter event at the SEC championships on Saturday in Fayetteville, Arkansas. | KYODO IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5last_img read more

Changing focus – Former UTech athlete enjoying new career as photographer

first_imgFormer track athlete Derron Wright is now focusing on photography after his hopes of representing Jamaica at the Olympic Games were shattered because of major injuries.Wright said these injuries have been affecting him since his days at Garvey Maceo High School and have also caused him to lose his athletic scholarship while he was studying sports management at the University of Technology (UTech).“In my first year, I got a hamstring injury at the Milo Western Relays and it took me a while to get over it,” he said. “They (UTech) gave me the second year to improve myself and it (the injury) was still recurring so they decided to cut the scholarship.”Wright said he had the option of studying overseas on a half scholarship, but he refused it, opting instead to study photography. NEW CAREER Wright said his athletic career ended after this, but many more doors were opened through his new career as photographer.“I wanted to be an Olympic athlete and when I started getting these injuries, I realised that it was a bit far-fetched, so I turned to the next best thing I knew how to do, and that was photography,” Wright said.He said though he has not used his sports management degree directly, the business courses he did during his studies have helped him to grow and develop his business called D Wright Focus Photography.His business has given him the opportunity to work with businesses and celebrities such as his favourite athlete Asafa Powell.“A mutual friend, Julian Forte (an athlete), contacted Asafa and set up the shoot, and probably I was a little bit nervous because I was about to photograph the former world record holder, but it went well,” he said.He still hopes to participate in the Olympics some day but through photography.“You can never tell where life will lead you because, who knows, in a few years from now I might be shooting at the Olympics or some World Championship games, and that would lead me back into the sport, but not actually competing,” he said.Wright said the coronavirus pandemic is slowing down his photography business because fewer people are booking photo shoots, but he has plans to venture into other areas soon.“I am in the process of starting a farm with my former teammate from Garvey Maceo and UTech, Tyquendo Tracey,” he said.

Cricket News Did You Know? Rohit Sharma Has Been Dominating Virat Kohli In ODIs Since 2013 – THIS Number Shows It

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are currently on top of the rankings when it comes to ODIs. Both are run-scoring machines. While one decimates the bowling attack at the top, the other clinically dismantles the opposition and ensures chasing any target is a simple task. The combination of Rohit and Kohli have taken Indian cricket to new heights and currently, the duo are the best in the world when it comes to flair, destruction and class. Universally, it is acknowledged that Kohli is one of the modern greats of the game. Numbers prove it. Kohli’s numbers in this decade, when one compares it to all formats, is simply marvellous. On the other hand, Rohit’s career was rejuvenated when he was promoted to open the batting and he has played an integral part in ensuring that India’s top order is given a supreme air of initimidation.When it comes to numbers ever since the start of 2013 till now, when both players featured regularly for the team, Kohli tops that list. In 148 ODIs since 2013, Kohli has 7634 runs at an average of 66.38 and a strike-rate of 97. In this period, he has a staggering 33 fifties and 30 hundreds. Rohit, on the other hand, has 6708 runs in 132 ODIs at an average of close to 59 and a strike-rate of 92.29 with 30 fifties and 25 centuries. On the basis of these numbers, Kohli once again asserts his supremacy. However, a deeper look into the numbers reveals a slightly different story.Story Begins In 2013The cricketing world acknowledges that Kohli is a class apart when it comes to consistency, centuries and run-making ability. However, Rohit has consistently beaten Kohli in this one aspect ever since 2013. This is the highest individual score in the Indian cricket team in every calender year and so far, Rohit is leading 7-0 against Kohli. In 2013, Rohit hit his first double century when he plundered 209 against Australia in the seventh and deciding ODI in Bangalore. In that year, Rohit hit two centuries while Kohli hit four but in that period, the Indian skipper’s highest score was 115*.In 2014, Rohit rewrote the history books when he blasted a world record 264 against Sri Lanka at the Eden Gardens. The score still remains the highest ever by a batsman in ODIs. Kohli, on the other hand, smashed 139* against the same opponents in Ranchi to inflict a 5-0 whitewash.Things continued to favour Rohit in 2015. In the ODI against South Africa at Kanpur, he smashed 150 while Kohli’s highest score that year was 138 against the same opponents in Chennai. In that year, Rohit outscored Kohli even when it came to scoring centuries. In 2016, Rohit blasted 171* against Australia in Perth while Kohli smashed 154* against New Zealand in Mohali. 2017 and 2018 have been golden years for Kohli in which he scored over 1000 runs and smashed six centuries in both the years. However, even here, Rohit has trumped Kohli in individual scores.Dominance ContinuesIn 2017, Rohit blasted a world record third double ton in ODIs by hammering 208* against Sri Lanka in Mohali. In 2018, Kohli seemed to have the better of Rohit when he blasted 160* against South Africa in Cape Town. Rohit, though, stole the show yet again when he smashed 162 against West Indies at the Brabourne stadium. In these last three years, both Rohit and Kohli have scored at over 1000 runs and their average is in the high 60s. Rohit’s average in 2018 was a mind-numbing 133.Rohit Sharma has smashed three double tons in the last six years while Kohli has hit over 1000 runs in three consecutive years. (Image credit: Getty Images)In 2019, Kohli is ahead when it comes to runs and average. However, when it comes to individual highs, Rohit is on top again. Kohli smashed 123 against Australia in Ranchi but Rohit smashed 140 against Pakistan in Manchester during the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. This was the tournament in which Rohit smashed five centuries and ended up as the leading run-getter with 648 runs.Rohit has been a monster six-hitter ever since 2013, smashing a total of 209 sixes till now, which means an average of close to 40 sixes an year. The Mumbai right-hander has already crossed the record for most sixes hit by an Indian player in ODIs breaking MS Dhoni’s record. Kohli, on the other hand, is consistency personified with seven out of his 12 years fetching him over 1000 runs.Also Read | No Chris Gayle, Andre Russell In West Indies ODI And T20I Squads In India SeriesFor the average Indian fan, the question of whether Kohli is greater than Rohit is a never-ending debate. However, the fact remains that both are batting at their zenith and Indian cricket is not only receiving a boost but it is making opposition bowlers restless.last_img read more

`Gov’t did not destroy Inter-Guiana Games’ – Min. Norton

first_imgTHE accusation by the Opposition that the Coalition Government destroyed the Inter-Guiana games was yesterday dismissed as “farthest from the truth” by Minister of Social Cohesion, with responsibility for Culture, Youth and SportS, Dr. George Norton.The minister, speaking on the side-lines of the 2019 National Budget Debate, was responding to Opposition Member of Parliament and former Director of Sport under the PPP administration, Need Kumar.“This administration, in no way or form, would try to destroy something we enjoy, something the athletes look forward to. We had good success at past games and we want it to continue,” the minister stated.Dr. Norton said during Kumar’s tenure as Sport Director, he demonstrated little interest in the sector, citing his absence during the 2013 Inter-Guiana Games.Further, Minister Norton made reference to the bad state of the National Aquatic Centre located at Liliendaal and the Leonora Track and Field, both constructed under the PPP government.According to the minister, there are visible cracks at the bottom of the pool at the National Aquatic Centre while the synthetic material is already peeling at the Leonora track. This, he estimates, has just a few more years before it is totally destroyed.“We do hope, because we are in the process of constructing two other tracks, in Region Ten, Linden and Region Six, New Amsterdam, that they are a much higher quality than that at Leonora,” Norton said.last_img read more
