… Bess optimistic that ‘elite athletes’ will medalTHE four-member Guyana team, currently in the Dominican Republic for the 46th Central American and Caribbean Bodybuilding and Fitness Championships, will be in action this weekend.President of the Guyana Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation (GBBFF) Keavon Bess said that the competitors are ready for the spotlight.Two of Guyana’s representatives are no strangers to CAC, including five-time Mr Guyana and former CAC gold medallist Kerwin Clarke and four-time Mr Guyana (Men’s Physique) Emmerson Campbell, who has a CAC silver and a bronze medal under his belt.Meanwhile, the experienced former Mr Guyana Physique, Yannick Grimes, would be competing in his first CAC. Also making his maiden trip is Darius Ramsammy, who would battle in the U-154 category.TRAINING HARDThe Space Gym athletes: Clarke, Campbell and Grimes have been training hard over the last few months for the event.Kerwin Clarke is ready for another gold medal performance.Clarke even decided to retire from the Senior National Championships, which was held in August to focus on his training for the top regional bodybuilding and fitness competition.Campbell had fine-tuned his body and felt he was in top shape prior to leaving, while Grimes underwent some serious transformation and is expected to be in a much better shape than at Seniors.ELITE ATHLETES“I am confident that the team will do exceedingly well at the CAC 2019 Championships. It’s a small team but notably it is comprised of three elite athletes who have done well over the years,” Bess noted.He added: “Mr Clarke has put together a gold medal body and his aim is to replicate his performance in 2016. Mr Emmerson Campbell has signalled his intention to finally break through and to capture that elusive gold medal.“I am confident that he can do well and can capture another gold medal for Guyana. Yannick Grimes has grinded hard for a long time with the single aspiration of dominating a CAC stage. He has his chance and I expect nothing but gold from him in addition to being a transitioned athlete.”Bess added: “Mr Ramsammy who favours his chances at his first CAC will get the opportunity to share the stage with some of the best bodybuilders in the Americas and Caribbean.”

ANAHEIM – Shohei Ohtani, home run derby participant?The Angels haven’t ruled it out.Though he’s been unable to pitch since he underwent Tommy John surgery last October, Ohtani has been a productive designated hitter since making his 2019 debut in May. Ohtani entered Sunday’s game against the Mariners batting .257 with six home runs and 22 RBIs in his first 27 games. His on-base plus slugging percentage (OPS) has risen from .625 on May 27 to .762.Ohtani’s long batting practice drives are the stuff of legend, and this might be his only major league season as a full-time hitter. Why not let him participate? “If that is something we are presented with,” Eppler said via text message, “we’ll look into it at that time.”INJURY UPDATESAs expected, Trevor Cahill was formally placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with right elbow inflammation. Because the move is retroactive to Thursday, he is eligible to be activated in seven days.The 31-year-old right-hander said he felt tightness in the elbow in his most recent start, Monday in Chicago. He compared the severity of the pain to an incident that caused him to miss one start last year, when Cahill pitched for the Oakland A’s.“I took a rotation off, and I started back up and treated it like an all-star break I guess,” he said. “Five days off from throwing and just started throwing again and the pain was gone.”Cahill is 2-6 with a 7.18 earned-run average in 12 starts this season. He’s completed six innings just once in his last nine outings.Related Articles Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield “That would be something I guess he would have to decide,” Manager Brad Ausmus said Sunday.The league announced in March that it would award $1 million to the winner of this year’s derby, which will be held July 8 in Cleveland. The total prize pool last year was $500,000. This year it will be $2.5 million.Ohtani’s base salary for this season is $650,000. The Angels gave him a $2.3 million signing bonus last year. The winner’s purse would do more for Ohtani’s net worth than most of his teammates. Mike Trout has never participated in a home run derby. Albert Pujols has participated in four, but none since 2015.Since then, the format of the derby has changed. Participants last year were limited to four minutes, plus a possible 30 seconds of bonus time. If swinging for the fences repeatedly in such a short amount of time posed a medical risk to a man’s elbow, it didn’t occur to Ausmus Sunday.Ohtani declined comment through a team spokesperson. Angels general manager Billy Eppler was a bit more cautious about his two-way star possibly participating in the derby. Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “I feel like I’ve been getting better but the results haven’t been a lot better,” Cahill said. “But as far as my stuff on the mound, I feel like it’s getting better. So it’s bad timing. But I’m hoping with extra rest I’ll come back even stronger.”Outfielder Justin Upton (turf toe) took a day off from his minor league rehabilitation assignment with advanced Class-A Inland Empire. He will return Monday, Ausmus said.Infielder David Fletcher was held out of the lineup with soreness in his left shoulder. Ausmus said the injury isn’t so serious that Fletcher will be placed on the injured list.ALSOPitcher Dillon Peters was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake one day after picking up the win Saturday in relief against the Mariners. … Pitchers Jose Suarez and Nick Tropeano were formally recalled from Salt Lake prior to Sunday’s game. … Catcher Jose Briceño hasn’t played for Salt Lake since May 18 and is expected to be out a little while longer as he recovers from a shoulder injury, Ausmus said.UP NEXTAngels (RHP Griffin Canning) vs. Dodgers (LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu), 7 p.m, Fox Sports West Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros
Colby Covington hit out at a “fake stoppage” by referee Marc Goddard after he fell to a fifth-round defeat to Kamaru Usman in the main event of UFC 245.Usman retained his welterweight title in Las Vegas after a series of brutal shots in the final round, Goddard stepping in to call a halt to proceedings with Covington sent to the canvas as the Nigerian continued to aim strikes at his head.

XFL commissioner Oliver Luck told Sporting News in February that scouts were “watching these games closely.”MORE: XFL players with the best chances to make NFL rosters in 2020 “A lot of these guys have spent time in the league, so these NFL teams will know them relatively well,” Luck said. “But there’s a brisk interest in a lot of players in our league from other professional leagues.”We’ve already gone over some players that should get an opportunity, but below we’ll simply be tracking the players that have secured deals. Expect a few of the XFL’s standout players like P.J. Walker, Cam Phillips and Storm Norton to get deals early on. But while some players may sign deals with team early on, there’s no guarantee they last past training camp. NFL rosters expand to 90 at this time of year and have to shrink all the way down to 53 before the season starts.XFL players to sign with NFL teams Name Position XFL team NFL team P.J.

For one reason or another, they couldn’t stick in the big leagues and had to prove themselves in the XFL. But with more game tape, it’s likely that NFL teams will take another look at a number of players because of their XFL experience.
The multiple incidents required a Safety Car before the action settled and racing resumed, after five laps.Vettel pulled away to open a three seconds lead ahead of Hamilton and Bottas after 10 of the scheduled 51 laps of the tight and fast Baku street track.On lap 11, Nico Hulkenberg lost control of his Renault and clipped a wall at Turn Four as Ricciardo began a series of attacks on his Red Bull team-mate, the pair banging wheels to the consternation of their pit wall.At the front, Vettel was in control and opened up a 3.6 seconds lead despite Hamilton recording fastest laps.“These tyres are done,” complained Hamilton, who pitted to switch to ‘softs’ after 22 laps, rejoining third behind Bottas, but ahead of Verstappen.
