Weekend Pick: Tube Big Bend in West Virginia

first_imgThe first weekend of August means the Dog Days of Summer are upon us. The mercury rises to its zenith, the humidity really kicks in, and the drive to get outside and sweat is near baseline. Sitting inside next to the air conditioner is one option, but no one ever wants a case of summer cabin fever. There is only one thing to do during the stickiest weekends in August: tube.Tubing is one of the great American traditions and is so quintessentially Southern, one has to think the practice started in the Appalachia. It combines the pleasure, coolness, and excitement of the river with the enjoyment of just sitting there. Sure you may have to move a little to get to the beer cooler, or to cool off with the occasional dunk, but really it’s just like sitting in a floating recliner and watching the clouds drift by. If you want to relax outside, this is the best way to do it, and one of the best places to do it is at Big Bend on the South Branch of the Potomac in West Virginia. If you are over exercise tube Big Bend, but if you are dead set on getting a workout, grab your SUP and give your core a little boost while you’re at it. Respite is only a wobble away.Deep inside the wild Monongahela National Forest, the South Branch of the Potomac makes a drastic U-turn through the scenic Smoke Hole Canyon. Green forested gorge walls are interspersed with rocky cliffs on the outer edge of the “big bend” in this river, while a forested campground occupies the inside peninsula. The entire loop around the campground is a mile long, packed with small riffles and fun waves, perfect for running laps in a tube on a hot summer day. Tube for an hour, walk a few hundred yards across the peninsula, and start again. This is primitive tubing at its finest, so bring your own tube, and don’t expect heavy crowds, even on a summer weekend.Nearby: The 24-mile long North Rim Trail follows the western rim of Suck Hole canyon. It’s a primo mountain biking and hiking trail with rocky outcroppings and a cornucopia of long-range views.Closest Town: Petersburg, W.Va.Directions: Follow US Route 220 south from Petersburg to the Upper Tract Bridge at County Route 2. Take a right at the bridge and follow County Route 2 for 10 miles into the campground.View Larger Maplast_img read more

Quadri, Assar lead African charge at German Open

first_imgRelatedPosts Aruna Quadri’s uncommon qualities stand him out, says Oshodi Quadri Aruna leads Africa to World Cup Aruna’s arrival attracted interest in Germany — TTBL The two best players in Africa – Aruna Quadri of Nigeria and Omar Assar of Egypt – will be leading the continent’s contingent to the first ITTF World Tour in 2020 – German Open — holding at GETEC Arena in Magdeburg on from January 28 to February 2, 2020. Assar, 2019 ITTF Africa Cup Champion will lead a six-man Egyptian contingent in the men’s singles. Before the start of the tournament on Tuesday, the Egyptian delegation has been in Germany warming up for the competition with technical input from one of their national coaches, Maged Ashour. Aside Assar, other Egyptian stars expected to be in action in Magdeburg are Assar’s sibling, Khalid, as well as veteran Egyptian, Ahmed Saleh. Others are Mohamed Shouman, Karim Elhakem and Mahmoud Helmy. Having put the disappointment of missing out from the team event of Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games behind them, Nigeria’s Aruna Quadri and Olajide Omotayo will also be competing at the German Open. Omotayo had earlier this year said he would compete in some of the elite tournaments in 2020 as part of his build up to Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Omotayo said: “I hope and believe I can make it to Tokyo 2020 because I know that my winning the African Games means more hard work and that is why I am going to compete in some of the elite tournament this year. “I am starting with the German Open with the hope that playing against the best in the world would toughen me and also help me to be in shape for the African Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Tunisia next month.” For Quadri, it promises to be a long route to the main draw as only the top 16 players in the world were listed in the seeding list while the Nigerian is rated 18th. This development has prompted Quadri’s participation in the preliminary round, which serves as a pathway to the main draw. Africa’s most improved player in 2019, Ibrahima Diaw, will be hoping to repeat the feat that saw him rise to 76 in the world in 2019 as the Denmark-based star will be competing from the second round of the preliminary, while he will partner Omotayo in the men’s doubles. Two African female stars – Dina Meshref of Egypt and Cameroun’s Sarah Hanffou – will also be inaction in the women’s singles being part of their build-up to the 2020 Africa Top 16 Cup holding in Tunisia next month. Hanffou, who is eager to compete at Tokyo 2020, will also be using the tournament to tune up for the African Olympic Qualifying Tournament as she hopes to seal one of the four slots at stake in Tunis.Tags: aruna quadriGETEC ArenaMAgdeburgOmar Azzarlast_img read more

Cricket News Tamim Iqbal Back In Bangladesh Squad For Twenty20 Internationals Against India

first_imgNew Delhi: Tamim Iqbal, who had missed the home series involving Zimbabwe and Afghanistan after the end of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, has been included back in the Bangladesh team for the upcoming three-match Twenty20 Internationals against India. The left-hander had requested a break from the Bangladesh Cricket Board after a woeful 2019 World Cup where he managed just one fifty. In the subsequent series against Sri Lanka, where he was also the captain, Bangladesh were whitewashed 3-0 and he requested time-off to work on his fitness.However, there is a major surprise in the inclusion of Arafat Sunny and Al-Amin Hossain. Sunny and Al-Amin featured in the 2016 World T20 and have not played for Bangladesh since. The 33-year-old Sunny, a left-arm orthodox spinner who has taken 12 wickets in 10 T20Is, was suspended during the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 for an illegal bowling action. He had also spent two months in jail after being arrested in 2017 for his involvement in a family dispute.Al-Amin’s inclusion is a result of Rubel Hossain getting injured. The squad sees the inclusion of some youngsters like Afif Hossain, who hit a fifty against Zimbabwe in the Twenty20 tri-series. The selectors also decided to drop Sabbir Rahman, Nazmul Hossain Shanto, Rubel and Taijul Islam from the side that played during the tri-nation series at home. Speaking about the squad, chief selector Minhajul Abedin said, “We have recalled Sunny because we need someone experienced for India, which is a tough country. Al-Amin comes into the squad as some of our other fast bowlers are injured.”The side will be captained by Shakib Al Hasan, who himself took a break after the end of the ICC Cricket World Cup for the series against Sri Lanka. Bangladesh have lost all eight Twenty20 Internationals against India, with the last loss coming in 2018 in a heart-breaking final at the Nidahas Trophy in Colombo. In that match, Dinesh Karthik smashed 29 off eight balls which included a last ball six off Soumya Sarkar. Also Read | Bangladesh board announces squad for Sri Lanka series, Shakib Al Hasan restedThe T20I series will begin with the first match on November 3 at Arun Jaitley stadium in New Delhi. The next two games are at Rajkot and Nagpur on November 7 and 10 respectively.  Squad: Shakib Al Hasan (C), Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Naim Sheikh, Mushfiqur Rahhim, Mahmudullah Riyad, Afif Hossain, Musaddek Hossain, Aminul Islam Biplob, Arafat Sunny, Mohammad Saifuddin, Al-Amin Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Shafiul Islam.  For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Wisconsin takes series from No. 1 Denver

first_imgSophomore forward Jordy Murray scores the Badgers\’ third goal of the night on a wrap around in the second period. Murray earned \”game puck\” honors for his play against Denver in the 4-3 UW victory.[/media-credit]It wasn’t easy, but Wisconsin finally got a huge monkey off its back.In a fierce battle with a playoff-like atmosphere Saturday night, the No. 3 Badgers outlasted the top-ranked Denver Pioneers 4-3 in front of a sellout crowd of 15,237 at the Kohl Center.With the win, Wisconsin snapped a six-game winless streak against Denver. The first five of those contests were Denver victories last season before the Badgers and Pioneers skated to a 3-3 tie in Friday night’s series opener.Considering the Badgers’ play in the second game of their last series at Colorado College, the result Saturday night meant that much more to the team.“Taking three out of four points from Denver is always a good weekend,” senior tri-captain Ben Street said. “We had a bit of a sour taste in our mouths coming back from Colorado Springs. … I thought we responded real well tonight. To win the game like that is huge for our team — it shows maturity and it’s a big step from last Saturday.”After falling behind 2-0 in Friday night’s game, Wisconsin came out aggressive early and netted a first period goal to take a 1-0 lead 15:47 into the game.Street’s goal, his 10th of the season, came as a result of a heads up play by the 5-foot-11 native of British Columbia. After fellow senior Michael Davies lost control of the puck after making a nice move to get in front of the net, Street grabbed the puck and fired a slap shot past DU goaltender Marc Cheverie.UW carried that lead into the break, but it would not take long for the Pioneers to answer back.Just 2:32 into the second period, freshman defenseman Matt Donovan fired a shot past Wisconsin goaltender Brett Bennett from the top of the right circle for the power play goal.The Badgers remained resilient, however, and answered with another goal just seconds later. Freshman Craig Smith, a Madison native, found the back of the net with a one-timer on a feed from senior Blake Geoffrion.That goal, the Badgers’ second of the game, put UW back up one and swung the momentum back in the home team’s favor. Large momentum swings were the theme of the night.“In a game like this, there were these flow and ebbs where one team’s trying to get up and get the advantage and then the other team fights back,” head coach Mike Eaves said.“In the second period there we did some things that were uncharacteristic — turning the puck over in the middle of ice — and we had to battle back, stop doing those things and get the momentum on our side.”UW held that momentum four the majority of the second period, even adding a third goal at the 6:26 mark when sophomore forward Jordy Murray poked one just past Cheverie on the wrap around.Murray’s goal was assisted by Smith and Geoffrion, and made it appear as though the Badgers could put the game away with another one in the second period.Unfortunately for the cardinal and red, though, Denver was not about to give up just yet.At the 13:43 mark in the period, senior captain Rhett Rakhshani got an easy opportunity and converted it, cutting the lead to 3-2.Rakhshani was pleased with his team’s ability to answer the Badgers’ 3-1 lead, but acknowledged the Pioneers’ slow start was to blame for the loss.“We responded and that’s a positive, but I think in the future we’re going to have to learn how to come out harder,” he said. “This is going to bite us in the butt later in the season if we’re not prepared for that.”Still, Wisconsin had the lead going into the third and the chance to go up 4-2 if it scored first in the final period. Yet, the Pioneers stole the momentum once again, as Rakhshani’s linemate and fellow senior Tyler Ruegsegger put one through the five-hole on Bennett to tie things up at three goals apiece.For the second consecutive night, two of the nation’s top three teams were tied 3-3 in the third period and appeared as though they could be headed for overtime once again.Thanks to an excellent faceoff play by the Badgers, though, the game would end in regulation.After sophomore Derek Stepan won a faceoff in the Denver zone, freshman defenseman Justin Schultz fired a shot from out wide that Davies tipped in for the game winner.Davies’ goal, his 11th of the season, sealed the series victory for the third-ranked Badgers. It was the first for UW against DU at the Kohl Center, which opened in 1998, and the first at home since October 1994.“The best thing about this weekend is the fact when you play at that level — that’s championship level in terms of college hockey,” Eaves said. “What better way to prepare yourself for the end of the year than by playing in these types of games?”last_img read more
