Une 6e étape mouvementée – Matteo Nativelle

Ce matin a eu lieu la 6e étape de ce Traditour qui reliait Deshaies à Gourbeyre, et c’est Steeven Foy et son équipage “Coq la” qui la remporte.

Ils étaient 29 voiliers à prendre le départ ce matin à Deshaies pour rejoindre Gourbeyre. Avec peu de vent sur cette nouvelle étape, les patrons ont du faire un choix au niveau de leurs stratégies. La course a été menée par plusieurs équipages successifs (L’éleveur / Grand Port Caraïbe / Déhé Vwal) mais peu de temps avant la bouée de Baillif c’est Coq La de Steven Foy qui prend un sérieux avantage. Il a assez creusé l’avantage pour ne pas être mis en danger par Hugo Thelier sur LSNO (Léwop Sé Nou Osi).

Classement étape 6 :

1- Steeven Foy (Coq la)

2- Hugo Thellier (Léwop sé nou osi)

3- Antoine Lefort (Jardin botanique )

4- Marcelin Wilbon (Ti cochon là)

5- Jean Forbin (Guadeloupe Port Caraïbes)

6- Mathieu Moures (Aigle des mers )

Une belle arrivée à Gourbeyre

ANDRE SIMON UPDATE: Possibility of additional delays and expenses

Updates on Andre

16 th July 2022

Thank you all for your support.

– Andre arrived to Texas with a pressure ulcer/wound (on posterior region) and this is interfering with the treatment programme.

After assessment, it was classified as a stage 3 wound and an X-ray was carried out to see if the infection reached the bone (it did not). This interference has led the doctors to discuss the possibility of a temporary transfer to a specialized (LTAC facility) to deal with the wound and infections. This challenge could mean additional delays and expenses with a second medical facility.

– Andre is now using a specialized bed (air fluidized therapy) to help the wound heal fast and minimize the need for turning

– He is increasingly breathing better through his nose. This is good. It is one step closer to removing his trach

– His vitals are great

– his physical appearance is returning to normal and the little bruises around his body are healing

– He was initially on an anti- seizure medication and they plan to wean him off of this since he is not demonstrating any seizures and that drug can make him feel cloudy/drowsy

– He is taking his food really well so he will hopefully but back on his weight soon.

Minister of Health and Wellness, Ian Gooding-Edghill

According to Ian Gooding-Edghill, Minister of Health and Wellness in Barbados, Barbados has recorded its first confirmed case of Monkeypox.

Regarding the source of the Monkeypox case, the Minister said:

This case is a Barbadian [man] in his thirties, who attended the Winston Scott Polyclinic with symptoms of a progressive rash, body pains and fever. He sought medical attention at the Polyclinic within hours of his arrival in Barbados. The patient was seen and assessed based on a history of recent travel and clinical manifestations. The patient was swabbed and the samples were sent to the Best-dos Santos Public Health Laboratory for testing where results revealed a positive case of Monkeypox. These results of the locally done test were obtained within 24 hours as against the days awaiting results when the tests were done in Trinidad by CARPHA.

The Minister had alerted the country yesterday that a suspected case was under investigation.

Today, he assured citizens and visitors on island, saying that “the patient remains in isolation and is under the direct care and medical supervision of our Medical Officer of Health.”

“In the interest of patient confidentiality, no personal details will be disclosed,” the Minister continued.

As it pertains to the possibility of transmission surrounding this initial case, the Minister added:

I am confident that the Ministry’s speedy announcement of this case will, as has occurred with our response to COVID-19, get from the Barbadian public the same level of cooperation in our ongoing management of the Monkeypox health issue.

The Ministry of Health and Wellness has commenced contact tracing as a responsible public health measure. Let me assure the public that the Ministry is fully prepared to handle any cases of Monkeypox in our nation.

Ackelia Smith ‘super happy’ after big PB in women’s triple jump Loop Jamaica

Black Immigrant Daily News

EUGENE, Oregon: Nothing feels better than when you achieve a personal best and that is why Jamaica’s triple jumper Ackelia Smith flashed a broad smile as she walked through the Mixed Zone on day two of the World Athletics Championships in Eugene, Oregon on Saturday.

The 20-year-old student at the University of Texas in the United States, who is seen as a possible successor to the likes of Shanieka Ricketts and Kimberly Williams, reeled off a big personal best of 14.36m to book her spot in the final on Monday.

The 14.36m effort came on her final jump and it was enough to surpass the qualifying mark for the final.

“I am super happy,” said Smith. “I went out there for a personal best and I did just that and there is nothing more else I can ask for.”

Smith’s 14.36m represents the sixth best of the 12 qualifiers.

Smith, who finished second behind Ricketts at the Jamaica trials in June, is not thinking about a medal in Oregon, where Yulimar Rojas is expected to rule.

Rojas, a five-time world gold medallist, Olympic champion, and world record-holder, led all qualifiers with 14.62m.

At the World Athletics Championships Oregon22, the Venezuelan triple jump superstar has the chance to become her event’s first three-time women’s world outdoor champion,

“My goal is to get a new personal best in the final because I am competing against a lot of ladies with a lot of experience,” said Smith.

She is looking to add aggression to her jumps when she competes in the final.

“My techniques are ok enough to get me a big jump,” Smith told Loop Sports. “But one of the things that I did lack the most today was aggression and I think that I did get that on my last jump.”

Ricketts, who produced a 14.45m effort to secure an automatic qualifying spot into the final, was very happy for Smith.

“I am just having goosebumps right now. I just spoke to her before coming over here (the mixed zone). I told her to forget everything and just pretend as if she is in training,” said Ricketts.

The 30-year-old Ricketts will enter the final with the fifth-best qualifying jump.

The third Jamaican – Kimberly Williams – is also through to the final.

Shaneika Ricketts made a jump of 14.45m to qualify for the final of the women’s triple jump in Eugene, Oregon on Saturday.

She leads all three Jamaicans into the finals, as the 20-year-old Ackelia Smith in her first senior championships jumped a big personal best of 14.36m for eighth-best to also book her place.

The veteran Kimberly Williams, at 33, squeaked into yet another final at a major championship, securing the 12th and final spot with a jump of 14.27m.

Ricketts won the silver medal at the 2019 world Championships in Doha, Qatar and is looking to at least repeat her podium finish from three years ago. Her 14.45m was the fifth best jump on Saturday.

World record holder Yulimar Rojas leads all qualifiers with an impressive 14.72m.
