0Shares0000David Majak celebrating after completing his brace for his Kapenguria Heroes side against Nakuru All Stars in the Final of the Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom Rift Region played at the Narok Stadium on November 5, 2017. Photo/SOKANAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 16 – When one hears the name Kakuma, what comes into the mind is the Refugee Camp located in the North-western region of Kenya, however, David Majak has painted a different picture as the lanky South Sudanese youngster shone to leave a mark at the Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom Rift Region Finals held at the Narok Stadium on November 5.Majak, 18, who has grown up in Kakuma Turkana County, scored a brace to inspire his Kapenguria Heroes to a 2-0 victory over Nakuru All Stars and book a slot in the nationals of the Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom where they will represent the Rift Region in March 2018. His super touch, accurate passes and clinical finish left him the talk of the day at a packed Narok Stadium, attracting the eyes of scouts who attended the match. He was recognized for his effort in the two day competition where he was the top scorer with seven goals and named the Most Valuable Player.Majak reveals the hardship that he has undergone to peruse his passion of becoming a superstar, training at the dusty murram fields in the County of Turkana and lack of facilities, but he remains focused, hoping to break through one day and play for his dream club Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League.With the unfavorable hot conditions for training, Majak together with his team-mates or sometimes alone, usually trains in the evening when the weather has cooled down after being inspired to fall in love with football by his elder brother who was also a player.-Dream to play for Gor-Kapenguria Heroes striker David Majak (LEFT) takes a shot against Nakuru All Stars during the Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom Rift Valley Region Final held at the Narok Stadium on 5th of November, 2017His immediate wish is to play for record 16-time Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia after being attracted with K’O’galo’s style of play.“I started my football career in Kakuma, Turkana County in 2014, I started as a goalkeeper but now I am a deadly striker and I believe I will go far. The journey has not been smooth because Turkana is a difficult place to play football because of the heat,” the striker narrated to Capital Sport.“Sometimes we don’t go for training, we only wait for games to go and play but if you have talent you can train alone and that is if you are determined… that is what I usually do. The challenges however are the facilities. The fields are of murram so you have to play very carefully or else you will badly get injured,” he revealed.Interestingly despite being a Tottenham diehard fan, Majak is nicknamed ‘Cazorla’ deriving from Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla.He disclosed that his desire is to be a role model for other aspiring footballers in Turkana County who believe they cannot defy the odds and achieve their dreams.“It’s not that our team (Kapenguria Heroes) is that good, it’s a matter of team spirit and believing in our selves. Since the days I was a goal keeper I have been admiring Gor Mahia because I like the way they play and I believe I will play for them one day. There is nothing impossible in this world,” Majak said.“In five years from now I have faith that I will board an airplane and go play abroad. Who knows maybe I will replace Harry Kane one day… haha,” Majak with a genuine laugh underscored.Majak underwent his Primary Education in Kakuma before enrolling at Chewoyet Boys High School where he is currently in Form Three.He will see his dream come true to travel to London at his favourite White Hart Lane club Tottenham Hotspur, and have a chance to meet Harambee Stars captain, Victor Wanyama if his Kapenguria Heroes team emerges the champions of the boys’ Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom champions in March 2018.The Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom tournament is aimed at identifying and developing football talent from the grass root.0Shares0000(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)

TURIN, Italy – It’s time for “The Bode Show” to begin, and it had better be good. It had better rock these Winter Olympics, better become the talk of the Games. Best become NBC’s best friend. Alpine skier Bode Miller easily is the most hyped athlete of the 2006 Turin Games, a reigning World Cup champion who speaks his mind with the same veracity he attacks the slopes. Do you root for this guy? There was plenty of national reaction leading up to the Games when he talked on “60 Minutes” about skiing wasted. More reaction when he spoke to Rolling Stone about Barry Bonds and Lance Armstrong taking steroids. For someone who claims to disdain media attention, he has an unwavering knack for attracting it. Yet if you’re expecting petulance, you’ve come to the wrong bohemian skier. “I don’t want to sound arrogant, but none of that bothers me very much,” Bode said after arriving in Turin. “I would be lying if I said I had massive regrets about the things I’ve said.” The regrets might yet come, but less for his comments than his preparation for the Games. After earning the super-G and overall World Cup titles last year – he was the first American in 22 years to win the overall championship – he has had a somewhat unimpressive 2005-2006 World Cup season. At this point in the season last year, he had won six World Cup events. Thus far this season, he has one victory and only three finishes on the podium. Bode, as ever, acts unconcerned. “I’ve met my goals effectively as I did last year,” he said. Apparently, he just had lower goals this season. Yet family and coaches have expressed concern that he failed to prepare for the season with the same dedication as previous summers, his attention wandering to business deals, pleasure and partying. He recently left the tour to spend a week golfing in Dubai. “I don’t think he’s prepared as well as he should have,” U.S. coach Phil McNichol told Sports Illustrated. Bode will enter today’s downhill feared and respected but not the most favored American skier. Daron Rahlves is the most accomplished U.S. skier ever. He has won three downhills this season and been on the podium six times. The last time a World Cup event was held here on the Sestriere Borgata course two years ago, he won it. Yet it is Bode the center of attention, Bode the media magnet. He complains about his coverage, yet courts it with comments that constantly demand attention. At different times he has ripped his own coaches, the ski federation’s drug-testing program, his sponsors and the press. He once said he might skip Turin for fear that winning here would bring him too much fame and affect his lifestyle. He said he might start his own pro tour after the Olympics. He has said, “I falsely represent myself.” He says a lot of stuff, which either endears him to fans or sends others screaming into the snow-dusted night. Bode, 28, first emerged at the 2002 Winter Games, when the story of his upbringing – he was raised in a New Hampshire cabin without electricity or indoor plumbing – and his two silver medals caught the national eye. His ensuing success in the World Cup made him a huge international star, which he both embraces and disdains. He talks about enjoying a simple, modest lifestyle, yet recently signed a multiyear contract with Nike. He had a show, “Bode on the Bus” on OLN. He gave lengthy interviews to several magazines, and of course, “60 Minutes.” He has authorized a Bode video game. He’s philosophical, conflicted, and maybe despite all the success, somewhat unhappy. He also is the man on the spot. Today will be the first of five events and the American public will expect its anointed star to deliver. It won’t care if he has struggled to regain his championship form this season and been hampered with a bad left knee. His rivals are keenly aware Bode is capable of turning it on when he needs to most. Despite his laid-back ways, he is highly competitive, supremely proud. All skiers will keep a watch on Bode today, but then so will much of the world. His hellbent, all-out style of attack can lead to dazzling runs or horrendous crashes. It’s his sport’s biggest stage, and time for “The Bode Show” to deliver. Steve Dilbeck’s column appears in the Daily News four times a week.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card He’s an American and the best in the world when he actually wants to be. He’s reckless on and off the snow. He parties like being the world champ in one endeavor isn’t enough. He’s young, arrogant but doesn’t seem to see it, opinionated and full of contradictions. It’s Bode the rock star of skiing. Bode the rebellious. Bode who disdains being marketed but has emerged the most marketed athlete entering these Games. Bode – rhymes with Kobe – is on the cover of about every American magazine but Cosmopolitan. He’s worshipped and feared in Europe. He is not exactly the darling of these Games – he’s too independent, too edgy for that – but is the most watched and anticipated athlete of Turin. Say what you will, but you will say it. Whether you adore him, revile him or simply find him a curiosity, Bode inspires reaction.

Played over 5 days with 2 being qualifying days and then 3 days of matchplay. The semi-finals and final was played on Saturday. After 5 cracking days of golf and a hard fought final between 2 international teammates Alex Gleeson from the Castle Club won 2 n 1 over John Ross Galbraith from Whithead. The both had stood shoulder to shoulder on the Irish Team that had won the Home Internationals in Scotland the weekend before. Sometimes you look at a scorecard in disbelief and the Saturday Confined provided one of those moments. Nine birdies six pars and three bogies gave Brendan Devlin a round of 65 and 43 Stableford pts. Brendan didn’t have much luck during the Irish Close but by God he made up for it on Saturday. Covering the last 6 holes in 5 under par is the stuff of every golfers dreams. Class Brendan. Spare a thought for Gary Mc Geoghegan who shot a 1 under par round to give him 42pts but only 2nd. Gary only arrived back from his wedding in Las Vegas last week but he obviously saved a bit of his energy for the golf. 3rd place went to another low man Oscar Mailey with 38pts. John K Farren took 4th with 38pts also. The Gross went to Jason Mc Intyre with 33 gross pts.The Sunday Anniversary Open was played off the back tees as usual. A man whose handicap has gone amazingly to 17 Neil Grant had 38pts to win from Jim Monagle with 36pts. In 3rd spot was serial prizewinner Ryan Doherty with 35pts. Nicky Mc Cusker took 4th also with 35pts.
