ALTHOUGH a few swimmers have already been shortlisted, the Guyana Amateur Swimming Association (GASA) is still deciding on the 12-member team who will represent Guyana in this year’s Inter-Guiana ‘Goodwill’ Games to be held in Guyana from October 20 to 24.According to a representative for the team, Leon Seaton, the association is unable at this point in time to do a swimming trial activity, so instead will determine who make the final cut by assessing the performance of the swimmers, thus far for the year.GASA is expected to select a team of six boys and six girls to participate in the event.“What I can say is that there is a proposed team but I would choose not to comment on that until the team is finalised. I can’t say at this point in time but early next week.“There are a number of factors that will be taken into consideration. What we’re using to come up with the team will be previous meets. We don’t have enough time to do a swim-off.” Seaton told Chronicle Sport yesterday.According to Director of Sport Christopher Jones, no deadline has yet been given to the various associations for the submission of their team members. However, Jones is set to meet with representatives from the different sporting disciplines tomorrow.Swimming is one of seven sport disciplines listed in the annual Games, the others being athletics, table tennis, basketball, volleyball and futsal.The Athletics Association of Guyana (AAG) has already named its 28-member team to represent Guyana, following their IGG trials held last Sunday at the National Track and Field Centre at Leonora. Volleyball also held trials a few weeks ago.The various teams will be competing against respective teams from Suriname.As previously reported, the tri-nation competition is going on without participation from French Guiana in this year’s event, hence it is being labelled a ‘Goodwill’ event.
PANAMA kicked off play in the final round of CONCACAF qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup with a 1-0 win over host Honduras on Friday at the Estadio Olimpico Metropolitano.Fidel Escobar scored the only goal in the 22nd minute, when his right-footed free kick from 22-yards out took a slight deflection off Honduras’ Romell Quioto before hitting the back of the net.Although other chances were hard to come by in the first half, both sides were more dangerous after the break and were unlucky to not generate additional goals.In the 57th minute, Panama goalkeeper Jaime Penedo produced two outstanding stops. He made a diving save off a Diego Reyes effort from the right side of the box and, seconds later, the 35-year-old custodian thwarted Alberth Elis at point-blank range.Blas Perez had an opportunity to double Panama’s advantage in the 57th minute, only to miss way wide of the near-left post despite being completely unmarked in the box.Honduras goalkeeper Donis Escober maintained his side’s hopes in the 65th minute. The Olimpia standout first blocked Alberto Quintero’s initial attempt and then dived at the left post to prevent the ball from crossing the line as the midfielder tried to slot home his own rebound.Elis had an opportunity to equalise in the 89th minute, but was unable to connect from the right side of the box.Panama returns to action on Tuesday by welcoming Mexico to the Estadio Rommel Fernandez, while Honduras will stay in San Pedro Sula for a visit from Trinidad & Tobago.(Sportsmax.comP
