Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netWith the game on the line, SJ Belangel sent the ball to the heavens and got his prayers answered.The shifty playmaker canned the crucial foul shots in the last 9.8 seconds as Ateneo escaped Nazareth School of National University, 63-58, to once again be crowned the king of UAAP juniors’ basketball Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.ADVERTISEMENT Kai Sotto survived a foul-plagued outing and helped Ateneo recover from a 54-48 deficit, scoring seven of his 19 points in the last 4:18, while also hauling down 13 rebounds and rejecting three shots en route to him being named as the Finals MVP.Belangel chipped in 16 markers and eight boards, while Dave Ildefonso got a near-double double with his 13 points and nine rebounds as the Blue Eaglets completed a fitting ending to what was almost a perfect season for them.“I just told the boys to stay composed. We’ll fight back,” said coach Joe Silva.It was a classic duel between the top high school teams in the UAAP which saw heroes come out from both sides.Terrence Fortea went on a blitz in the second half, unloading 12 of his 14 points in the final two quarters, but none bigger than his wrap-around assist to Rhayyan Amsali to give NU the six-point lead in the final four minutes.ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew ONE: Despite last-minute opponent change, Danny Kingad ready for anything It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson UK plans Brexit celebrations but warns businesses may suffer Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award LATEST STORIES View comments In the thrilling stretch, Belangel’s charities put the Blue Eaglets up, 62-58, and virtually sealed the Season 80 title, their first juniors’ championship since brothers Mike and Matt Nieto steered the school to the throne back in Season 77.All hail, the Kings of #UAAPSeason80Jrs Basketball! pic.twitter.com/irIoSz48QoFEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk— Randolph B.

Ronaldo says decision easy to join Juve to win CL

first_imgRonaldo has lifted a record five Champions Leagues titles — four with Real Madrid and one with Manchester United.Another with Juventus would see him join Dutch great Clarence Seedorf, the only player to win the top European trophy with three different clubs.Seedorf won the European title four times — with Ajax, Real Madrid, and twice with AC Milan between 1995 and 2007.“We’ll focus on that, with my teammates, but without obsessing over it. We’ll go step by step and then we’ll see, if it’s this year, next year or the year after that,” continued Ronaldo who has agreed a two-and-a-half-year deal to become DAZN’s first global ambassador.“The objective for the club is to win the League, Coppa Italia and, of course do our best in the Champions League.”Seven-time reigning Serie A champions Juventus have lifted the Champions League twice — 1985 and 1996 — but finished runners-up twice in the past four seasons.Ronaldo earned a standing ovation from the Turin crowd when he scored a spectacular overhead kick at the Allianz Stadium for Real Madrid last season.“The small details make the big difference at the end of the day so…I would say what I saw in the stadium helped (his move),” Ronaldo said.“And, of course, when the people start to applaud me in the stadium I was like, ‘wow’.“It surprised me a lot because this has never happened in my life, so it was an unbelievable moment.”The five-time Ballon d’Or winner said he had been impressed with his new club since joining last month in a 100-million-euro deal.“I’m very happy, the team is strong and Juve, as everyone knows, is one of the best clubs in the world,” continued the Portuguese captain.“I’m positively surprised, we train hard twice a day. I like how they train, their mentality. They have special methods, they are very, very professional and for this reason I feel good.‘Mini me’ – Ronaldo reveals his son doesn’t like losing either. © AFP / Sergei SUPINSKY“There are things in life that seem to be dictated by destiny and in this case it was like that.“I never expected to play in this team, but some things happen naturally, for me it was an easy decision, what was done in Madrid is incredible, I won everything, my family lives there, but it’s part of the past.“I want to try to write the story in this club.”Meanwhile Ronaldo revealed that his eight-year-old son Cristiano Jr was also a promising footballer.“He’s very competitive. He’s like me as a child. He doesn’t like losing.“He’ll become like me, I’m 100 percent sure of it. I’d like to teach him some things, but ultimately he will choose what to do and he’ll always have my support.“But of course, I’d like him to become a player because I think he has a passion for it too.”Perform Group’s DAZN secured streaming rights this season to three Serie A matches in Italy per week with the other games to be broadcast by traditional broadcaster Sky.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000‘No obsession’ but Cristiano Ronaldo wants Champions League glory with Juventus © AFP / Alberto PIZZOLIMILAN, Italy, Aug 22 – Cristiano Ronaldo said it had been an easy decision to leave Real Madrid for Juventus as he bids to become just the second player to win the Champions League with three different clubs.“I want to win the Champions League with Juventus and we will do everything to win it,” the 33-year-old Portuguese superstar said in an interview with streaming broadcaster DAZN.last_img read more

DONEGAL RIGHT-TO-DIE CAMPAIGNER’S HUSBAND SLAMS TAOISEACH’S STANCE ON ISSUE

first_imgThe late Marie Fleming with her partner Tom.The widower of Donegal right-to-die campaigner Marie Fleming has hit out at the Taoiseach’s refusal to legislate for assisted suicide here.The multiple sclerosis sufferer, originally from Lifford, and her partner failed in a landmark court battle in April 2013 to legislate for end-of-life help.Eight months later, on December 20, the 59-year-old died in her husband Tom’s arms. The 67-year-old said yesterday: “It was Marie’s second anniversary last week and there has still been no movement.“The Supreme Court made its statement that there was nothing to stop theOireachtas from changing the law.“So it is entirely up to our legislators to legislate for it.”But Enda Kenny insisted any change in the law would have to be put to the Irish people. He explained: “We have had legal advice on that, it is not constitutionally possible. It would probably require a referendum but it is not one I am considering now.”But Marie’s husband and father of her two children, said “It doesn’t need to be put to the people.“As was stated in the High Court, it doesn’t need a referendum, there is no constitutional ban, so the constitution doesn’t have to be changed. So all it needs is legislation.“It doesn’t surprise me he said that. When I spoke to him before he said very definitely it was something he and his party disagreed with.“But the last poll that was done showed 80% of people said they would agree with what Marie wanted. “But not only that, 53% said they would help someone in their family knowing it was breaking the law.“If that’s not a mandate then what is?”On the second anniversary of his beloved wife’s death, Tom admitted Christmas has been tough.He said: “The first went in a blur and it is hitting me an awful lot more now. I really miss her so much because we were so close. Every minute of my day was spent with her. But the family are great. “I’ve loads of good memories. We’ve had some wonderful times together.”Meanwhile, Tanaiste Joan Burton said she’d be open to a public debate on the right-to-die issue.The Labour leader explained: “I would say based on the experience of the hospice movement we certainly could have and should have a debate on this.“I am not talking about euthanasia, I am talking about an approach which respects the individual, their family and their dignity in circumstances in which their life comes to an end.”DONEGAL RIGHT-TO-DIE CAMPAIGNER’S HUSBAND SLAMS TAOISEACH’S STANCE ON ISSUE was last modified: December 28th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalLiffordMARIE FLEMINGright to dielast_img read more

The committee has raised in excess of €120,000 to date.The Road Race is part of the Donegal Grand Prix and the course of the race is one of the most challenging in the country. The race has had numerous different winners, with one even from the Netherlands, but none as yet have been able to beat the course record.The record was set back in the early years of the event and is held by Pat Hegarty. A new ladies record was set two years ago by Teresa McGloin.This year being the 20th staging of the event, the committee and the committee of the Ballyare Festival have united and the event will mark the beginning of a Fun Festival which will take place on the weekend of the 24th August to the 26th of August. This year the beneficiaries of the event will be the Buddy Bear appeal and the Illistrin Sports Development Fund.The Road Race and Fun Walk will be held on Friday the 24th August.
