Good work JANIEVE Russell of the University of Technology (UTech), and G.C. Foster College’s Demish Gaye shone brightly on yesterday’s final day of competition at the NCB Intercollegiate Track and Field Championships at the National Stadium. Russell, who had won the women’s 400 metres hurdles on Friday’s opening day, won her second title in fine style, clocking a personal best 51.17 seconds. Drawn in lane three, Russell covered her main rivals, Tiffany James and Dawnalee Loney of Mico University, very early and sprinted away from the field to win easily. James, 52.30 for second, and G.C. Foster’s Verone Chambers, who was third in 52.55, also clocked personal best times. Russell was very pleased with her performance. “I am very happy with my victory today. I was very confident going into the event, and this is a good sign for me,” she said, while praising her coach, Stephen Francis. Coach Francis had high praises for his charge. “It was, indeed, a good performance for Janieve, and to know that she ran a personal best just coming off a surgery,” said Francis. Gaye, the find of the season in the event, defeated a quality field, clocking a fast 45.57 and, in the process, broke the old record of 45.93 set by UTech’s Rusheen McDonald in 2014. Twayne Crooks (47.00) of UTech was second, with third going to Alvin Green of G.C. Foster College in 47.22. “It has been a very good season so far for me, and going to the recent World Indoor Championships as a part of the Jamaica team, has motivated me and I am looking forward to continuing the good work this season,” said Gaye. Oshane Bailey of G.C. Foster College completed the sprint double. Following his 100 metres win on Friday, Bailey pipped Kevean Smith of UTech on the line to take the 200m in 20.72 seconds. Smith did 20.77, with Everton Clarke of G.C. Foster, third in 20.82. Former Calabar High standout Michael O’Hara, now competing for the University of the West Indies (UWI), was fourth in 21.19. Shericka Jackson of UTech clocked 22.98 to win the women’s 200m ahead of teammate Shimarya Williams (23.33), with 100m champion Jura Levy of G.C. Foster College taking third in 23.48. The day started on a good note for the Mico University College. They picked up two wins in the first two finals, the women’s and men’s 1500m, through Samantha James and Alex Hutton. James, who won the 800m on Friday’s opening day, clocked 4:43.63. Hutton won the men’s event in 4:06.28. With the relays still to be completed last night, G.C. Foster College appeared set to take the men’s and women’s titles. • MEN: G.C. Foster College 126, UTech 83, UWI 81, Mico 38 and Exed 23 • WOMEN: G.C. Foster College 152, UTech 130, UWI 93, Mico 42, Church Teachers’ College 7.

Three club athletes gain International selectionIt was a most successful weekend for our club athletes in National competitions in Santry Stadium[Saturday] and in Tullamore[Sunday]. The prestigious Tailteann Games Inter provincial, in a blustery Santry, found Kelly McGrory, Abbey Voc School, repeating her All Ireland schools win when she crossed theline in the 300m hurdles.The Laghey lass was very fast from the blocks and good aggressive hurdling technique found her with a five metres lead entering the home straight. A strong headwind in the last 70 metres made it difficult for all athletes to hold form. A slight mishap at the final barrier did not deter Kelly as she swept to vicory. Later in the afternoon she doubled up as Ulster’s representatives with club and school mate, Kate Mc Gowan in the 80m Hurdles. Kate came through and repeated her All Ireland schools winning performance with Kelly in the bronze medal position. Earlier Kate had battled with the elements when recording a third place in the Long jump with a best of 5.20metres.Following the meeting the Irish schools selectors rewarded both with places on the Irish team for the Home countries International in England on July 21st. Kelly and Kate are also members of the Irish 4 x 100 and 4 x 300m relay squads. Congratulations from everyone in Tir Chonaill on this fine representative achievement and to Royal and Prior Raphoe,John Kelly, Shot Putt, Cian McBride, Summerhill College,/Grange 800m, Zak Irwin, Sligo Grammar, 100/200m and Jordan Hilton, Protora, 4x100m relay.Its a fine achievement to be included on a provincial team at any level.

Although car companies have not broken the law, campaigners said they were misleading customers by claiming their vehicles were greenCredit:Tobias Schwarz REUTERS Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. Paul Morozzo, Greenpeace Clean Air Campaigner, said: “Carmakers, backed by the industry lobby, are yet again knowingly misleading their customers and the public at large by marketing new Euro 6 diesels as the ‘cleanest in history’.“Their own data shows that more than half of the very newest, top selling, Euro 6 diesel cars pollute far above the latest standards.“They’re still dirty and they’re still putting peoples’ health at risk. It’s time the industry took responsibility and stopped investing in diesel.”The data also showed that some manufacturers had managed to produce diesel cars well below the limit such as Opel/Vauxhall’s 2 litre Grandland-X which recorded overall NOx emissions of no more than 35.5mg/km.Almost all of the strongest performers were fitted with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology, which converts nitrogen oxides into nitrogen and water by injecting urea into the exhaust. However experts said most companies would choose to simply ditch diesel in future rather than adopt expensive methods for lowering emissions.Dr James Tate, Associate Professor at the Institute for Transport Studies , at the University of Leeds, said: “It is evident that controlling NOx emissions from diesel cars is challenging and expensive, with only a handful of manufactures of new models currently being found to emit NOx at a lower level.“The result is most manufacturers are already stepping away from manufacturing smaller diesel cars, with Fiat Chrysler declaring they’ll ditch diesel altogether from all its cars by 2022, and all Volvo cars launched from 2019 onwards will be partially or completely battery-powered.”Fiat declined to comment on the investigation. Renault said all but two of its diesel vehicles now fell within the new nitrogen oxide levels, while Opel/Vauxhall said the cars highlighted in the report did not need to meet September levels. Diesel cars marketed as the ‘cleanest in history’ are still belching out more than four times the legal limit of harmful nitrogen oxide, an investigation has found.A study of the newest models of the greenest Euro 6 diesel cars on sale across Europe by Greenpeace investigators found half of cars recently approved for sale would not be allowed on the market if tested today.Although car manufacturers were ordered to clean up their emissions following the Volkswagen ‘dieselgate’ scandal in 2015, limits for nitrogen oxide did not come in until September last year.When campaigners tested cars between April 2016 and September 2017 they found half emitted nitrogen oxide gas above the new legal limit of 168mg/km NOx.The worst results were for the 1.6 litre Fiat Tipo, which recorded overall emissions of 561mg/km – 3.3 times the current legal limit – and 753mg/km in urban driving – 4.5 times the limit.Other cars with poor results for emissions include the Renault Scenic Energy dCi 95 which was 2.4 times over the limit and Opel/Vauxhall’s 1.6l Crossland-X at 2.3 times the limit.And because they were tested before the new limit came into effect, manufactures are able to label their cars as Euro6 – the greenest category.
