Chief Superintendent, Dave Sheehan said that the division had no choice but to meet the extra demand on resources following cuts. “We know where numbers are set to fall in the next 12 months and have made plans to cope with them,” he told the meeting, attended by cllrs, TDs and senior garda members. “It’s difficult but there’s nothing we can do”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Gardaí in Limerick have already had to face the closure of two rural stations, a reduction in patrol cars and an embargo on recruitment.And Chief Supt. Sheehan said the closure of further garda stations could not be ruled out.He also praised the work of the garda reserve unit.“Even now preparing rosters is difficult; We are acutely aware of government policy and have to use the resources we have in the division to provide the service.“The garda reserve takes off a bit of the pressure.“In the course of the college rag weeks and Thomond Park events, we couldn’t cope without them”.Cllr James Collins highlighted the vacant position of superintendent in Askeaton and queried the policy in the case of a serious crime in the vicinity.“We have a fallout situation in the case of an emergency that is not dependent on having a superintendent in Askeaton,” the head of the Limerick garda division replied.“Inspector Eamon O’Neill is currently acting supt. and in the case of a crime scene, whoever’s on call will attend as all superintendents cannot be away at the same time”.Cllr Kevin Sheahan called for less Joint Policing Committee meetings for the individual authority and for more at a district level.“Once a year for these meetings is enough; I hate to see individuals and resources overstretched”.Chief Supt. Sheehan agreed, saying that the meetings should be more strategic in content and that issues “such as wandering horses” should be dealt with at local level.

Sports world must join climate change crusade, says IOC

first_imgLike other sectors, sport has felt the sting of climate change.Unreliable snow and warm winters are threatening winter sports, while rising temperatures and unpredictable weather are challenging summer-sport athletes, spectators and organisers.The new charter also calls on sports bodies to reduce climate impacts, promote climate action, and encourage “responsible consumption”.The initiative aims to use sport -– the single largest audience aggregator -– to drive global climate awareness and action.Beside the IOC, organising committees for the Tokyo 2020 and Paris 2024 games, the World Sailing organisation, the World Surf League and Roland Garros have all signed up.The IOC has asked Olympic organising committees to develop their own carbon-cutting plans.Share on: WhatsApp Katowice, Poland | AFP | The world of sports must join the effort to tame global warming, and the International Olympic Committee intends to lead the way, it said on Tuesday at UN climate talks in Katowice, Poland.At the 195-nation negotiations, the IOC and UN launched an initiative aimed to line up verifiable commitments from sports federations and clubs to cut carbon pollution in line with the Paris Agreement. That calls for capping the rise in Earth’s temperature “well below” two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), and at 1.5 C if possible.With only 1C of warming so far, the world has seen a crescendo of deadly extreme weather — heatwaves, drought, floods.“Addressing climate change is everyone’s responsibility, and the IOC treats it very seriously,” said IOC President Thomas Bach.He was backed by Prince Albert II of Monaco, chair of the IOC’s Sustainability and Legacy Committee.“With its global reach, universal appeal and the power to inspire and influence millions of people around the globe, sport is uniquely placed to drive global climate action and encourage crowds to join in,” Prince Albert said at the event.“As countries here in Katowice prepare to turn their climate commitments into reality, we stand ready to leverage the power of sport to support their efforts.”last_img read more

Joshua Cheptegei’s 5K world record ratified

first_imgCheptegei record ratified.  PHOTO FACEBOOK MONACO RUN/Robert PalombaParis, France | THE INDEPENDENT  |  The world athletics governing body IAAF has ratified four records, including that of Uganda’s Joshua Cheptegei, that were set before the COVID-19 pandemic brought activity to a halt.Others ratified are that of Armand Duplantis, world pole vault record of 6.17m, Yulimar Rojas’s world indoor triple jump record of 15.43m and the US men’s 4x100m relay quartet.On February 16, 2020 in Monaco, Cheptegei set an opening kilometre timed at 2:31,  just the blistering pace that he needed to shatter the 5km world record- that remained unofficial until this ratification. IAAF makes sure the right distance, drug tests, wind speeds and other criteria are met, before confirming a record.How Cheptegei did itIn Monaco that Sunday, 23-year-old Cheptegei followed the opening lap with times of 2:35, 2:36, and 2:35—for the next three kilometers, before finishing with a final split of 2:32.When it was all done, he had shaved 27 seconds off the previous best set by Kenyan Rhonex Kipruto —13min 18sec in January in Valencia. The Uganda lowered the 5km world record with a time of 12 minutes 51 seconds and revealed he had set out to “really go for” breaking the sub 13 minutes barrier.“Wow, this is really great,” Chepetegei told World Athletics. “I had sub-13 minutes on my mind today, so when my legs felt good during the race I decided to really go for it.” “To take this many seconds off the record makes me very happy and is a great first test for me in an important season,” he said, with the Tokyo Olympics in mind.The COVID-19 outbreak has unfortunately blown away his Olympics dream this year, with the Tokyo Games postponed to next year.Cheptegei last year also broke the 15km road record and now becomes the first Ugandan to hold three world records, moving a step ahead of the legend John Akii Bua, world record holder in the 400m Hurdles in 1972.Cheptegei’s 12:51 is the fastest over the distance on the roads and the track in the last year.
