Motion Travel has become the official agency of the largest marathon in the world – TCS New York City Marathon 2020!

first_imgThese are the ambassadors of our tourism and the lighthouse entrepreneurs who bravely push forward in spite of everyone and everything and destroy the status quo. Support them. In Motion travel, they are still awake dreaming and bravely walking step by step towards new goals. Running is a constantly growing trend, so over 50 million inhabitants of the European Union run regularly, and according to Josip Ćorić, Croatia is definitely growing, and the most important thing is that the number of runners, clubs and community who create new runners and new marathoners. As Ćorić points out, from the first day he woke up dreaming of this very moment and step by step he built a story that the dream turned into reality. That there is a big difference between desire and goal, says this great story, as well as its continuation, since Motion Travel recently included a marathon in Morocco, and for 2020 they are preparing to organize a trip to the races in North America and Asia where their motto RUN & TRAVEL would definitely come to life. Namely, the trend of running is spreading in Europe from year to year, as well as in Croatia, and as Josip Ćorić points out, as a passionate runner he did not have an offer to go to half marathons and races in various European cities. And that’s where that click or eureka happens. As a passionate travel enthusiast and employee in agency tourism, Ćorić decided to establish Motion Travel, the only agency in Croatia specialized in the departure of recreational, amateur and professional runners and of course their fans to races within Croatia and Europe. Today, after a little over a year and a lot of work and effort, Motion Travel has become the official agency of the largest marathon in the world – TCS New York City Marathon 2020!  Thus, for the first time, Croatia has its own tourist representative for runners at the NY Marathon, a Motion Travel  has managed to position Croatia as one of the 54 countries in the world that have a representative at the largest racing event in the world. This cooperation will enable all runners from Croatia and the region to more easily access information, entry fees and medals. “The racing population in Croatia increasingly travels to foreign races where we already offer them attractive trips and as the crown of the offer we want to offer runners from the region all major races and thus be at the top of the world agency offer of racing trips. It is difficult for us to predict in which direction the niche is developing because we are currently the only ones going in that direction and we are the initiators of both outgoing and incoming, but we think we are going at a good pace because after a year and 3 months we already have two majors. we travel to more than 15 different races across Europe and are recording constant growth. We see definite growth in offering travel on all continents. ” Ćorić points out as his new goal and the dream he wants to fulfill. Once a upon a time… or the story starts like this nekako. center_img “The beginning of communication with the organizers was already in April this year when we sent the first part of the documentation. Since the establishment of the agency, our goal has been to become the official ITO (International Tour Operator) for the NY Marathon, so we carefully “step by step” started working together. Through half a year and meeting the strict conditions we had to meet, such as being the ITO of one of the major marathons, and as we are already the second year of the ITO for the Berlin Marathon it was a great advantage for us. After sending the rest of the documentation and checking the quality of work, checking all the items we listed, we received confirmation that Motion Travel will be the official ITO and that Croatia gets the first travel agency for another major world racing event. says Coric. RELATED NEWS: As Ognjen Bagatin from the Bagatin Polyclinic points out, it is important to celebrate other people’s success, encourage and build the perception of success in Croatia. Proof of how to succeed in Croatia. A little over a year ago, a great idea was born, an idea that hit the need of runners in Croatia and offered a solution to the problem. Cover photo: TCS New York City Marathon / Illustration HrTurizam.hr Thanks to the HrTurizam.hr portal, I have the honor of being the source of information, and the “power” to connect people, entrepreneurs and tourist stories, all with the aim of generating added value and synergy.

Sachin Tendulkar scores his 100th international century for India

first_img Share Sharing is caring! InternationalNewsPrintSports Sachin Tendulkar scores his 100th international century for India by: – March 16, 2012 Share “I have lost about 50 kilos. Enjoy the game and chase your dreams. I had to wait for 22 years for one dream, the World Cup.” India’s Sachin Tendulkar has become the first player to score 100 international centuries by compiling a ton in a one-day game against Bangladesh in Dhaka. The 38-year-old completed his landmark century, his 49th in one-day cricket, with a single clipped to square leg. After being dismissed for 114, he said: “I was not thinking about the milestone. It hasn’t sunk in.” Tendulkar had twice been out in the 90s after scoring his 99th century against South Africa in March 2011. The right-hander, who holds the record for scoring the most Test and one-day runs, has also scored 51 Test tons. Tendulkar, whose own celebration was a little muted, was immediately congratulated by the Bangladesh players after he jogged through for the single to bring up his century, scored off Shakib Al Hasan. The hundred was Tendulkar’s first against Bangladesh in one-day cricket and he added another 14 runs before edging a Mashrafe Mortaza delivery to wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim. He added: “A year ago when I got my 99th hundred no one spoke about it during the World Cup. The I guess it was the media who began talking about it. “Wherever I went, to a restaurant, the house keeping, the room service, whoever I met just spoke about the 100th hundred. “It became a little difficult mentally, because I am not playing only for my 100th hundred. “The 99 hundreds that I scored, nobody spoke about them. Everyone had their opinion but eventually I have got to do what is important for the team. “I have lost about 50 kilos. Enjoy the game and chase your dreams. I had to wait for 22 years for one dream, the World Cup.” England Test captain Andrew Strauss told BBC Sport: “Sachin is a player by which all others are measured over the last 10-15 years, and for him to go out and get a hundred hundreds is an amazing achievement without precedent – it’s unlikely to be achieved again.” International Cricket Council chief executive Haroon Lorgat has also paid tribute to Tendulkar’s achievement. “On behalf of every cricket fan around the globe I congratulate Sachin on becoming the first person to score 100 centuries for his country,” he said. “This is indeed a magnificent feat and not likely to be easily emulated. The number 100 is special for a batsman and to record 100 centuries for your country is a massive statement. “Like millions of others I have followed his career ever since he first played for India as a gifted 16-year-old and now, more than two decades later, his passion and personal records, which include more than 33,000 runs at international level, is a modern day wonder. “Sachin is a true role model who will undoubtedly hold a special place in cricket’s history.” India Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said: “He has made India proud. “Tendulkar’s long career has been a triumph of class, character and courage. I wish him many more innings and feats to continue inspiring the youth.” He began his Test career as a 16-year-old in 1989 against Pakistan and scored 15 in a blood-soaked shirt after being hit in the face by a Waqar Younis delivery. The following year he scored his first Test century, against England at Old Trafford and in 1992 became Yorkshire’s first overseas signing. Tendulkar surpassed fellow India legend Sunil Gavaskar’s record of 34 Test centuries in 2005, became the highest Test-run scorer in 2008 and scored the first double century in a one-day international in 2010. Tendulkar has scored 15,470 Test runs and more than 18,000 in the one-day game. BBC Newscenter_img Share 21 Views   no discussions Tweetlast_img read more

Regional integration is key to facing current challenges, says St Vincent diplomat

first_img Share 10 Views   no discussions Ambassador of St Vincent and the Grenadines, Dexter Rose. Photo credit: searchlight.vcHAVANA, Cuba (ACN) — Latin American and Caribbean integration is the key to facing current and future challenges, such as regional social and economic development, said the ambassador of St Vincent and the Grenadines, Dexter Rose, in Havana, Cuba, to mark the 20th anniversary of bilateral relations between the two countries.In an interview with PL news agency, Rose said that, thanks to principles like solidarity and complementation among countries, thousands of Vincentians have recovered their sight with the implementation in his country of the free eye surgery program known as Operation Miracle, and which they call Vision Now.Cuba’s cooperation with its sister Caribbean nation mainly focuses on the sectors of healthcare, education and infrastructure.The ambassador recalled that over 200 youths from his country have graduated from Cuban universities, while another 100 students are currently taking different courses here. Rose particularly stressed Cuba’s cooperation in what he called the largest project ever in his country’s history, which is an international airport to boost the tourist sector.St Vincent and the Grenadines is made up of 32 isles and keys and it currently consolidating itself as a tourist destination. Tourism is the country’s major income source.As to the US economic, commercial and blockade of Cuba, the ambassador said that due to its extraterritorial nature, the unilateral measure affects the whole Caribbean region. Little is said about the impact by the US blockade on regional trade, especially about the Torricelli Law, which prevents a vessel from calling at US ports for a period of time if it has first visited any Cuban harbour, said Rose.“The US blockade of Cuba is an action against all of us, because it also bans the exchange of knowledge,” he pointed out. He explained that there are many professionals who are afraid of coming to different conferences hosted by Havana when they think of the consequences they would have to face later.Caribbean News Now Sharing is caring!

Left-back Kostas Tsimikas was brought in because Norwich City were demanding too much for Jamal Lewis . The Reds’ thriftiness grants new opportunities to young faces. In the likes of Rhian Brewster, Neco Williams, Ki-Jana Hoever, Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott, Klopp has a group of talented starlets who could be capable squad players now rather than later. If any one of them could put in a star turn against Arsenal, it might convince Klopp to keep them close to the first team this coming campaign. After all, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s rise from that same academy to becoming one of the best right-backs in the world seemingly came out of nowhere, too. A potentially new-look Arsenal midfield Arsenal still want Thomas Partey and are turning their attention to Roma’s Amadou Diawara, should that fall through. Dani Ceballos is keen to return but might not; Lucas Torreira is yearning for Italy, still. Matteo Guendouzi looks unlikely to ever return from the naughty step. All in all, only Granit Xhaka can really be counted on for the Gunners – not something that many would’ve believed a while ago. Ahead of today’s match, Mikel Arteta should have a selection headache of sorts; Mohamed Elneny was used in midfield alongside Xhaka against MK Dons, while Joe Willock is an option. Bukayo Saka looks good in midfield too, when played there. Until Arsenal resolve their transfer dealings, Arsenal’s midfielders have a chance to show what they can do. read also:Community Shield: Arsenal, Liverpool ready to battleGomez and Alexander-Arnold keen to impress Both Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander have keen competition for their roles and both will want to prove that they’re the right men for the side. But not at Liverpool. With the recent England squad containing a plethora of right-backs, Alexander-Arnold has a difficult job to establish himself ahead of Southgate’s favourites, Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier. Keeping Aubameyang quiet will likely go a long way to helping, however; Joe Gomez could do with a titanic performance too, especially with Harry Maguire not around this time in the Nations League. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Klopp’s Liverpool champions face off against Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal FA Cup winners – but this year, the shield feels stranger than ever. Arsenal haven’t played Liverpool in the Community Shield for 18 years. Back then, Frenchmen Arsene Wenger and Gerard Houllier were at the respective wheels; Michael Owen and Thierry Henry were the headliners. Plenty has changed, much for the worse. But at least we don’t let anyone kid themselves that it’s a proper tournament anymore. “This match is more than a friendly,” said Gerard Houllier. “The Community Shield is like a final. There is a trophy at stake and we are the holders.” The idea of Jurgen Klopp yelling at Mohamed Salah to sprint back and help his full-back against Aubameyang is an amusing one. Neither Liverpool nor Arsenal really care that much about the giant dish plate on offer to winner – but the match feels a little different this year for a number of reasons. What exactly can we expect from this year’s curtain-raiser? An even friendlier feel Essentially, the Community Shield exists as an opportunity for the two big winners of last season to build up their match sharpness in a sort-of competitive game, just seven days before the Premier League season kicks off, after three months of rest. This season, there’s been about six weeks of rest, the Premier League kicks off next weekend and the two teams will be heading on an international break after the match. This will have far more of a friendly feel than ever before – as if the Community Shield ever breaks into scuffles – with both Arteta and Klopp able to approach this one with even more license for experimentation. Both managers have stuck to their respective formations in preseasons, but we could see more youngsters brought in and new ideas tested out. Arsenal sat back and soaked up pressure when they last faced the Reds: perhaps they’ll go out and attack a little more this time, since there are no points at stake. Chance to test William Saliba Arsenal’s defence is in dire need of repair. The incoming Gabriel Maghalaes should help in that regard but even if he is signed by Saturday, he’s not likely to feature so sooner. William Saliba, on the other hand, has been loaned out to Saint-Etienne and is more than ready to slot into the Arsenal backline. Keeping Salah, Firmino and Mane at bay will be a baptism of fire for the Frenchman, but it should give fans a chance to see their new man in action. Saliba featured against MK Dons in a friendly the other day. He looks tailor-made for that right-sided centre-back position and though Arsenal are likely to line up with a back three, his physicality will be much-needed at the heart of defence.last_img read more

Accused Carjacker Dodges Train During High-speed Police Chase Through PBC

first_imgA local man is facing felony charges, after an apparent carjacking in Boynton Beach ended with a bizarre car chase.Authorities say 32-year-old Jaron Johns, of Wellington, led officers on a ride Tuesday, after he allegedly forced a woman out of her car and stole it.The probable cause affidavit states that Johns reached speeds exceeding 90 mph through residential neighborhoods from Boynton Beach to West Palm Beach.He crossed railroad tracks ahead of an oncoming train to lose police officers who were chasing him.Johns was arrested when the chase came to an end on Tuesday evening. He has been charged with carjacking, fleeing and eluding and driving on a suspended license.The incident started when the unidentified woman gave Johns a ride.Courtesy: Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office She told police that she picked up Johns, who she knew simply as “JJ,” from a Super 8 motel in West Palm Beach. Johns allegedly became aggressive at some point during the drive. That is when he made the woman switch seats with him, took her car keys and also tried to smash her phone, the police report explains.The woman also said that Johns pushed her from the car near a business park and sped off again before she was completely out of the vehicle, which resulted in bruises to her hands and knees.Johns took off again when a Boynton Beach police officer noticed the vehicle and tried to pull it over.“The suspect vehicle led several police officers on a high speed pursuit accelerating to speed over 90 mph through several different cities including Lantana” and crossed in front of an oncoming train in an attempt to evade officers, the report states.Police deployed spike strips, which deflated the car’s tires near Abbey Road in West Palm Beach.Johns was arrested without incident and was identified by the alleged victim. He was released from the Palm Beach County Jail Wednesday after posting a $53,000 bond, and is due back in court on June 11.last_img read more
