FOOTBALL: Messi’s Argentina Wins WORLD CUP 2022 – BBC News

Lionel Messi finally achieved his World Cup dream as Argentina won their third crown on penalties following one of the greatest finals in the tournament’s history at Lusail Stadium.

Argentina won the shootout 4-2 after a spectacular game which developed into the much-anticipated confrontation between the 35-year-old maestro Messi and his France opposite number Kylian Mbappe, who scored a hat-trick – the first in a World Cup final since 1966 – but still ended up on the losing side.      Continue reading

FOOTBLL: Why Don’t Argentina Have Any Black Players? – Video

Whilst neighbouring Uruguay and Brazil have had plenty of black footballers, including their greatest players of all time in the forms of Pele and Jose Andrade, the same cannot be said for Argentina. Despite sharing a similar colonial past to their near neighbours, Argentina’s black population is a fraction of the nation’s around them, and following a question from a subscriber during the 2018 World Cup, HITC Sevens takes a look at why that is the case.

Residents of Buxton and neighbouring villages on the East Coast of Demerara (ECD) were Monday assured of equitable development with other villages across the country as several government Ministers visited the area.

GUYANA: Short Stories: Scouting: Red Water Creek – Atkinson Field – By Geoff Burrowes

By Geoff Burrowes

I’ve dredged up from the recesses of memory a story of my first camping trip that I hope you’ll find interesting:

Red Water Creek – Atkinson Field. Guyana

I woke up excited. This was the day! I was a member of Scout Troop 39 but had never been camping. Today that was going to change forever!

Once a year the Scout Association in British Guiana held a rally to which all Scouts were invited. It took the form of a large camp, with space reserved for every troop’s tent and cooking fire and latrine, as well as a meeting place in a central location for all the Scouts. This year it was being held at Redwater Creek a creek in the bush, about 35 miles South of Georgetown, our city and the capital of our country, BG which was abbreviated from British Guiana. For those who don’t know BG was a British colony on the North shoulder of South America, and still today, the only English speaking nation in South America.                Continue reading

By Jack Haynes and David Milnes | Racing Post

Tributes poured in from across the racing world and beyond  recently following the death of legendary rider LESTER PIGGOTT at the age of 86.
