Tabal lost reason to run but found purpose to keep going. Her reason was also her purpose. It was her father, whose last message was the only thing his daughter needed to hear.“Part of me decided that I didn’t want to compete anymore because it was too painful to run. But after hearing what Papa told my cousin that he was excited to see me run and that he’ll wait for me at the finish line, I knew that I just have to finish the race no matter how my performance will be,” Tabal, who struggled to fight back her tears, told reporters after her historic run at the 41st Milo Marathon National Finals in her beloved hometown.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“We had promised to see each other after the race. Today, my promise is to just finish this race. I offer this race to him. I know he’s happy with my achievement today and I know he was running with me this morning,” said Tabal.Tabal, the Rio Olympian and Southeast Asian Games gold medalist, clocked 2:58:01, nearly 11 minutes later than her personal best when she ruled the 2016 edition in Iloilo City but her time was still good enough to keep her crown as the country’s undisputed marathon queen. The 28-year-old Tabal reaffirmed her status as one of the best Filipino runners after becoming the first ever athlete to win the Milo Marathon for five consecutive years.Tabal crumbled to the floor the moment she crossed the finish line and just let everything out. Weeping, she had to be helped by event organizers on her way to the recovery area and was eventually met by her family members.“I was in control of the race, it’s just that my time wasn’t fast because I felt heavy inside. I wanted to cry but I couldn’t maybe because I wasn’t able to sleep and I just kept crying all night,” Tabal recalled.“But I was lucky enough to finish the race despite everything that I went through.”Tabal hopes her emotional run toward history will be able to make a difference to her fellow Filipinos and Cebuanos.ADVERTISEMENT Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales? “I hope a lot of Filipinos or Cebuanos will be inspired by my achievement. There’s no easy road but if you put all your dedication and heart in your dreams, the impossible becomes possible. It’s really not going to be easy, a lot of sacrifices are going to be made but you will always have to remember why you’re doing it.“Even with a heavy heart, Tabal left her competition behind with the second finisher coming in six minutes later. But from gun start at Cebu Normal University to the destination at Cebu City Sports Complex, through and through, she was never alone.“This race is for him. He was running with me and he will be running with me in my future races.”RELATED VIDEO LATEST STORIES Read Next SEA Games 2019: Philippines clinches historic gold in women’s basketball PLAY LIST 05:02SEA Games 2019: Philippines clinches historic gold in women’s basketball00:50Trending Articles02:34Emotional Tabal makes history, wins 5th straight Milo Marathon02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award MOST READ Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparc OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

1 Thomas Ince Hull City and Blackpool have agreed a compensation package for Tom Ince.The former England Under-21 ace joined the Tigers last summer after his contract with the Seasiders expired.As he was under the age of 23, the Championship club were entitled to a fee, and an independent tribunal was set to decide the amount this week.But the two clubs have now come to an agreement that will see Hull pay up to £2.3million.Ince, 22, had held talks with Italian giants Inter Milan in the summer before opting for a move to the KC Stadium.He has yet to make a major impact for Steve Bruce’s side, however, featuring just eight times and spending a brief spell on loan at Nottingham Forest.

QPR fans on Twitter have been hailing a new hero after Paul Smyth’s debut goal earned victory over Cardiff.The 20-year-old, a summer signing from Linfield, marked his breakthrough into the first team with a 72nd-minute strike.And Rangers supporters were very excited by the Northern Irishman’s potential…Well wasn’t Smyth an absolute breath of fresh air. Lively, nippy, constantly looking to be positive and beat a man. Proper little livewire. Must play #qpr— Oliver George (@OliverGeorge84) January 1, 2018Paul smyth looks like being a great signing. Young, athletic, determined and bags the winner on his debut… giving youth a chance is always a step in the right direction #QPRvCAR #QPR— Jonsel (@KarateKidJSG) January 1, 2018To the fans that doubted the young Paul smyth hope you’re eating you’re words right now #ccfc #QPR— Chris Davis (@chrisdavisqpr85) January 1, 2018Paul Smyth’s pace today scared the life out of Cardiff, also really impressed with his decision making #qpr— Dean Spencer (@Spenno1) January 1, 2018Paul Smyth. What a debut. #QPR— Jack Supple (@JTSupple) January 1, 2018A debut goal from a youngster and a great performance from him too.

We heap for my pressure on the smallest success story, and when they don’t deliver instantly they are usually cast out.— Neil Barnes (@note_below) January 1, 2018 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
23 June 2008South Africa’s political parties were united in their condemnation of the attacks against people from other African countries that flared up in various parts of South Africa in May, displacing up to 32 000 people.During a joint sitting of Parliament in Cape Town last week, speaker after speaker mounted the podium to denounce the wave of violence that saw people from neighbouring countries being assaulted and in some cases killed.Leading the debate on a parliamentary report that probed the violence was African National Congress (ANC) MP Obed Bapela, who said that the attacks took place in the poorest areas of the country, and that even then it was “only in the corners of these communities” where the attacks were initiated.Just “a few people” had launched the attacks that began in the township of Alexandra in Johannesburg, Gauteng province and spread as far as Cape Town.No ‘third force’However, the possibility that a so-called “third force” or organised grouping was behind the violence had been ruled out, Bapela said, pointing out that the attacks had taken place in the poorest areas of already indigent neighbourhoods.A number of other factors had played a role in the wave of attacks that had shocked the country and dented South Africa’s image abroad, Bapela said.Key among these were intolerant attitudes towards people from other countries, the result of ignorance and lack of international awareness by South Africans. This had facilitated the creation of a climate of jealously and suspicion which was exploited by criminals.Mostly youngstersExplaining the absence of a sense of solidarity with people from other African countries, many of which gave refuge to South African exiles during apartheid, Bapela said that average age of the people arrested during the violence was between 16 and 22.Being prosecuted in special courts on charges ranging from assault and murder to looting and housebreaking, these youths were only a few years old when the country began its transformation in 1994, and were largely ignorant of the African values and beliefs carried by their elders, he said.Massive migrationFurthermore, the massive migration the world was experiencing had led to a situation where over six million people from other countries were living in South Africa, compared with about half a million before 1994.While people from other countries were contributing to the vibrancy of the economy, there was also a perception among many South Africans that they were competing for scarce resources, Bapela said.While the growth in the country’s gross domestic product has been averaging around 5 percent over the past few years, unemployment levels were high and over 12 million South Africans – a quarter of the population – were receiving some form of social grant.Scarce resourcesWhile lack of knowledge and awareness about other African nationals and cultures also provided a context in which to understand the violence, Bapela said a perception in communities that people from other countries were usurping resources such as jobs, houses and even women had contributed to an atmosphere of suspicion.“People are beginning to say, ‘They are taking our jobs, they are taking our women, they are taking our houses’,” Bapela said, despite the lack of hard evidence to support such claims.At the same time, the number of undocumented people from other countries in South Africa was “a concern”. The country’s porous borders, the question of the police rather than the army being responsible for patrolling them, and corruption in the Department of Home Affairs, were raised as key concerns in Parliament’s report.‘We are all Africans’Nonetheless, “We are all Africans”, Bapela said, adding that this would be the slogan of a national campaign to create deeper awareness among South Africans and facilitate the reintegration of people from other countries into local communities.This was echoed by Motsoko Pheko of the Pan Africanist Congress, who said that “Africans cannot be foreigners in Africa”.He added that he understood that about one-third of the approximately 60 people whose deaths were directly linked to the anti-foreigner violence were actually South African citizens.Sheila Camerer of the Democratic Alliance praised the parliamentary report as “laudably inclusive, consultative and thorough”.Govt ‘must take responsibility’However, she said the government had to “shoulder responsibility” for the situation, pointing out that the failure to process people from other countries was a “short-term catalyst” for the recent violence.Camerer said that while the police, as well as many members of local governments and civil society, had done a “wonderful job” in ending the violence and assisting the victims, short-, medium- and long-term strategies were now needed to deal with the problem.Parliament had to provide leadership, assess the entire legislative framework governing foreign nationals, and addressing corruption in the Department of Home Affairs, she said.It should should also look at police capacity to deal with such outbreaks of violence, and closely monitor both the reintegration process and the prosecution in special courts of those arrested during the violence.Pieter Mulder of the Freedom Front Plus party said care should be taken around allowing six million people from other countries to compete with South Africans for resources.South Africa had to “protect its own citizens against immigration”, he said, pointing to neighbouring Botswana’s “strong rules” about admission to the country.Another MP said steps should be taken to remove the expression “amakwerekwere” – used to describe people from other African countries in a derogatory way – from the national lexicon.Source: BuaNews

Climbers way up high Made it to the top! Afraid of heights? Then this week’s Geocache of the Week might give you the chills!To find L’aiguille du midi, you must first visit Chamonix, an adventurer seeker’s heaven! Steep peaks and endless views in the heart of The Alps draw visitors from all over the world to experience this awe-inspiring town and scenery.At 3,842m (12,605 ft), the Aiguille du Midi and it’s laid-out terraces offer a 360° view of all the French, Swiss, and Italian Alps. A 20-minute ride in the Aiguille du Midi cable car will deliver you to the summit terrace where you will have a clear view of Mont Blanc.Once you take the cable car to the top, take your time looking for the geocache and be discreet as there may be lots of visitors around. Once you sign the log, take in the panoramic views and walk through an impressive ice cave. You can also walk onto a glass skywalk called “Step into the Void” with a view 1035 meters (3,396 ft) straight down. Yikes! Due to the exposed nature of L’aiguille du midi, make sure to bring some warm clothing since it can be -10°C (14°F) in the middle of summer.For those who are feeling even more adventurous, there is an option to strap on crampons (those spiky things you attach to your boot to ascend ice) and climb to the top of Mt. Blanc. In the snowier months, some people also ski down the steep slopes of the Aiguille du Midi. Mountaineers and skiers are able to pass through a tunnel to reach the steep and extremely exposed ice ridge that descends to the glacier below. This activity is only recommended for very experienced climbers and skiers.Although the scenery may mislead you to think that the cache is a T5, the platforms in place allow for a rating of T2. Thanks to cache owner, Vilcanota, for creating such a fun and thrill-inspiring geocache!
