Woody Jacobs has been appointed as the new head coach of Namibian Premier League team Ramblers FC.
The 35-year-old, who was fired last season at WesBank Tigers after the second round and later managed to keep Eleven Arrows in the top-flight, signed a two-year contract with Ramblers.
For two executive members of his new club, Jorgé and Nelson da Purificaҫáo, Jacobs is not a stranger.
“In 2006, Jorgé and I were both assistant coaches of Helmuth Scharnowski, when we won the NPL title with Civics, while Nelson was on board as the financial director”, recalls Jacobs.
Namibian Olympic cyclist Dan Craven has not set himself a certain goal for Saturday’s Cycling Road Race, saying that cycling was too difficult to predict.
“There are so many variables and unknowns in cycling, so it’s not easy to say how I will do. If I was a marathon runner I could say I’m aiming for a time of 2:10 or so, but with cycling there are so many factors that can influence your performance,” he said.
“It’s about doing the best that I can, but the tactics also have to be right. If there is a bunch sprint, I’ll have to be there,” he added.
Cyclist Dan Craven arrived at the Athletes Village on Monday evening in high spirits and looking forward to the Men’s Cycling Race which will be the first event of the Olympics, starting at 10h00 on Saturday.
Craven has just completed a two-week training stint in Belgium during which he participated in six races.
In his final race he came 30th in a bunch sprint, finishing in the same time as the winner, but he said that results were not important at this stage.
After a three week break, the Bank Windhoek National Volleyball League kicked off last weekend with spectacular rallies and fierce spikes at the DTS Hall in Olympia.
The first game of the Men’s League between SKW and Khomas Nampol Volleyball Club (KNVC) was only decided in the rallies of the fifth set.
The SKW men infuriated the Nampol players with their spectacular defences and attacks, but the Nampol players were a tough nut to crack and they eventually won the game 3:2.
