20 March 2006After opening their Commonwealth Games medal challenge with a title winning performance in the men’s 4×100 metres freestyle relay, Team South Africa has continued picking up medals in Melbourne, mostly in the swimming pool.Natalie du Toit, after setting a world record in qualifying for the final of the 50 metres freestyle for elite athletes with a disability (EAD), went on to claim gold in the final in another world record time of 29.27.Speaking after her win, Du Toit said her goal remains to make it to the Olympic Games as an able-bodied competitor.Also on Friday, Lize-Mari Retief captured bronze in the women’s 50 metres butterfly after dead-heating with Alice Mills in 26.78 for the final medal.In the men’s 50 metres backstroke, Gerhard Zandberg, a member of SA’s 4x100m freestyle relay team, took third place in 25.16.Three more swimming medalsOn Saturday, Team SA picked up four medals, three of them in the swimming pool.Sprint superstar Roland Schoeman added the Commonwealth title to the World Championship title he won in 50 metres butterfly, touching in 23.34 seconds. It was some way off his world record of 22.96 that he swam in Montreal last year.George du Rand picked up a silver medal in the 200 metres backstroke, finishing in 2:00.32.Suzaan van Biljon added a bronze medal to the country’s haul from the swimming pool, turning in a time of 2:25.39 in the women’s 200 metres breaststroke final.There was further success for South Africa in shooting as the men’s 25 metres standard pistol pairs team laid claim to the bronze medal.Gold for NatalieOn Sunday, Natalie du Toit won her second gold medal of the championships, clocking 1:01.81 to take victory in the EAD 100 metres freestyle.Roland Schoeman and Ryk Neethling, like they did at the World Championships, had to settle for silver and bronze in the men’s 100 metres freestyle, except this time around it was Neethling who won the silver.England’s Simon Burnett won the race in 48.57, ahead of Neethling’s 49.20 and Schoeman’s 49.24. Afterwards, Burnett, who trains with Schoeman at Arizona University, credited the South African ace for his huge improvement in the event, saying Schoeman had helped him tremendously, including assistance with improving his stroke.Javelin goldIn athletics, Sunette Viljoen struck gold in the women’s javelin, throwing 60.72 metres, just 87 centimetres shy of her career-best throw.It was a fantastic turnaround for the 22-year-old athlete, who in 2005 faced a possible two-year drug ban for failing a drug test after returning abnormally high hormone levels. It was subsequently discovered that she was seven months pregnant and she was cleared of the charge.Besides the medal winning performances, there were further good showings from South African swimmers. Lauren Roets posted an African record 25.64 in the 50 metres freestyle heats, Gerhard Zandberg also swam an African record, clocking 55.41 in the 100 metres backstroke semi-finals, and Wendy Trott recorded an African record 8:39.19 in the final of the women’s 800 metres freestyle as she finished fifth.Hockey drawsIn hockey, the South African men’s team, after opening their challenge with a 6-1 pounding of Trinidad and Tobago, were held to a one-all draw by Pakistan.Paul Revington’s charges were just 90 seconds from a stunning upset of the highly fancied Pakistanis after Reece Basson put them ahead in the fifty-second minute by beating three men and then slamming his shot across goalkeeper Salman Akbar into the net. However, Syed Imran Warsi netted a late penalty corner to earn Pakistan a share of the spoils.The women’s hockey side experienced a similar fate. They began their competition with a 4-1 win over Nigeria and then faced India.They led the defending champions two-nil after early goals from two early goals from Henriette du Buisson. The Indians, though, pulled one back through Subhadra Pradhan and then, in the last minute, Pradhan smashed in a second penalty corner to make the final score two-all.
ShareGrid just released their end-of-year report detailing the most popular gear rentals of 2018. Let’s take a look at the most-used pieces of equipment.One of the best resources for filmmakers right now is ShareGrid. Their platform is simple: rent gear owned by other filmmakers. They are the middleman, bringing filmmakers together so we can get our hands on the gear we need. So, whether you want to become a member and invest in some heavyweight cameras for the upcoming year, or if you’re more interested in renting gear as you need it, ShareGrid is here to help you plan accordingly with their end-of-year report.The results break down into rental profits, number of rentals, and rental days to recoup value, which basically just means the number of days you’d need to rent the item out to cover its cost. It’s all about determining which cameras and pieces of equipment will yield a higher return on investment. There are also graphs and lists showing where and when the gear gets rented the most (Los Angeles is the most popular, obviously). Pair this data with our Camera Rumors for 2019, and you can start determining what’s really worth your investment.5: RED Scarlet-W Dragon 5KThis was the biggest shock in the PremiumBeat office. We would have thought an Alexa or an URSA Mini would be more popular than the Scarlet-W Dragon. But, waddayaknow? Since this camera is almost three years old, it’s interesting to note how popular gear is once its initial value drops.4. Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5No surprise here. The GH5 has been one of the powerhouse consumer cameras of the past two years. With 4K 60p with no crop, shooters love this camera, and we can see why it’s been popular in the rental market. Not only is it relatively cheap to rent for the day, you can also pay this camera off fairly quickly if you want to purchase one. You know it’s in high demand, and certainly it will continue to be in the coming year.I imagine the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K will probably knock this down the list. As more people get their hands on this affordable camera, expect the rental market for it to increase as well.3. Dana Dolly Original KitThe dolly will never go out of style. The specific brands and types might, but given what a dolly can do for your shots, it will always be around in some form or another. So, it makes sense that this affordable, efficient, classic piece of equipment is not only a good item to rent but also a good investment — the “Rental Days to Recoup Value” is only 14 days. The Dana Dolly kits available on ShareGrid are perfect for any size camera (up to 120 pounds), so this is your be-all and end-all solution for whatever you’re shooting.2. Sony PXW-FS7 XDCAM Super 35 CameraI didn’t know that the FS7 was this popular, but here we are! The camera has been out for more than 4 years, so expect its depreciating value to affect popularity and price. (However, the price for the FS7 is still listed as $7,000 right now.)1. Sony a7Sii Mirrorless CameraThe Sony a7s lineup will save us all. With the a7S III on the horizon, the a7S II will increase in popularity as its price comes down. But everything that made this a popular camera in the first place will still be there. Point is, this 4K mirrorless beast is great option for anybody starting out or shooting videos on a medium- to low-sized budget. I personally own an a7S II and will continue to use it until I inevitably break it somehow (then I’ll buy an a7S III).Check out the full list of the most popular rented gear in 2018 here.All images via ShareGrid.Looking for more articles on film and video production?

It was Zaheer Khan’s dismissal of Windies opener Devon Smith that opened the gate for India’s win at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Sunday.Chasing 269, Ramnaresh Sarwan and Smith were batting with ease, rotating the strike at will and milking away at India’s bowling. But, Zaheer got the better of Smith on 81 with his slower ball in the 31st over bringing an end to their 63-run partnership.The opposition lost their third wicket on 154 and that’s where the slide actually began for the West Indies.Man-of-the-MatchEarlier, India posted 268 against the West Indies and it was Yuvraj Singh’s maiden World Cup ton that proved to the highlight of the batting.But that wasn’t all, he came back to deliver the goods with the ball taking two important scalps in the match.Yuvraj Singh earned the Man-of-the-Match award for his all-round performance.

OSU cornerback coach Kerry Coombs and then-freshman cornerback Denzel Ward (12) celebrate after a tackle by Ward during a game against Rutgers on Oct. 24 at High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway, New Jersey. Credit: Lantern file photoRecruit rankings mean everything when college football teams are looking for fresh talent, but they mean little when it comes time to suit up and get to work. For the young secondary coming in to fill the shoes of outgoing talents for Ohio State, the journey has just begun.Co-defensive coordinator Greg Schiano met with the media for the first time this season, and had high praise for both freshman cornerbacks Shaun Wade and Jeffrey Okudah. Although he liked what he saw out of the new faces in the secondary, he said there’s a certain adjustment that takes time.“Well there’s two things I think,” Schiano said. “The volume of football, as far as it’s much different than high school. All the details that go into playing. It’s not, you know, go cover him. And then, the other thing is the speed of the game and the tempo of the game and the speed of the players you’re trying to defend. But I can tell you that it’s real early, but those are some special guys.”Okudah was clocked running at 23.2 miles per hour at one point during winter workouts, as evident by his name and speed being flashed across the giant screen in the Woody Hayes Athletic Center indoor practice field. He, along with Wade and sophomore transfer Kendall Sheffield all have a chance at contributing significant playing time in 2017.Schiano stressed on multiple occasions that it’s still far too early to tell who will be playing where, and how often.“I think it’s too early to judge,” he said. “I’m very impressed with them, as I said. Very athletic guys. Let’s let them play, and let’s see how it goes. Without a doubt, your initial impression is, really talented guys.”OSU coach Urban Meyer, who first met with the media on Tuesday, said he sees lots of promise in his young players at all positions. However, replacing talents like those of the three departing defensive backs is going to be a monumental challenge.Marshon Lattimore and Malik Hooker broke out as two of the best players at their respective positions in all of college football last season, and Gareon Conley had a productive career while donning the scarlet and gray. Both Schiano and Meyer said a rotation with a blend of returning players and new players will be key to success in the pass defense.“I think the way we play defense, we’d like to do that,” Meyer said. “We have (redshirt sophomore) Damon Arnette, and (junior) Denzel Ward are the only guys who have ever played for us right now. You’ve got (sophomore) Rodjay Burns. We moved (redshirt freshman) Wayne Davis to safety. You’ve got these four corners that just stepped out there today that looked pretty good. We’d like to play three or four — we’d like to play more than three or four. We learned a lesson. That was as good of production as we’ve had out of corners anywhere we’ve been. Obviously you’ve got great players, but what we ask those guys to do, it’s a track meet for four hours. If you can (get) a little rotation in there, it’s going to be much better.”Both Arnette and Ward played in 13 games last season, but the former enjoyed a majority of the playing time. Although Arnette comes in as one of the most experienced corners, he struggled at times last season to stay with receivers and read routes correctly.Schiano said he and cornerbacks coach Kerry Coombs will be looking closely at who can separate themselves from the pack, and who can earn a spot in the secondary rotation.“Kerry was saying he likes all the depth at the position,” Schiano said. “But, again, the cream’s gotta rise to the top because we have one guy who really played meaningful reps at the corner position.”
Marko Arnautovic has been heavily linked with a possible move to Manchester United but the player himself claimed that he doesn’t know about such a transfer and he is ready to fulfil his contract with the Hammers.Arnautovic failed to make it to the World Cup with Austria but he claimed that there have been no negotiations about his transfer – and he cares only about his health and his current contract with West Ham United.The Austria international spoke about his situation as he said, according to 101 Great Goals:“I am happy with my job. Whatever happens, will happen. I’ve never heard anything.”Maguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“Even three weeks ago I haven’t heard anything. That’s why I cannot say anything about it.”“The only thing that bothers me is that I am in good health and that I am able to play football.”“I have a contract at West Ham, that’s all we have to talk about.”
