James Adderley with sizzling sports statistics

Good evening I’m James Adderley with this week’s serving of sports Monday.

The special investigation committee convened by the Ministry of Sports to examine the Football Federation of Belize election processes is hard at work interviewing the various organizations that function under this particular umbrella. We spoke by phone to Miley Garcia National Sports Administrator in the Ministry of Sports.

“In June of 2010, the minister met with the president of several federations individually. At that time he talked to them about his concerns regarding all the federations and asked them for certain things that he wanted them to present to him. In the case of the F.F.B., the minister had asked the president at that time if he can present him with the evidence that the members of the F.F.B. had been duly elected by their respective football constituencies. About two letters later and about twelve months after, there had been no response from the F.F.B. so the minister conducted a nationwide tour. Subsequent to that, the minister decided that he was going to order an independent investigation to find out if whether or not the member do the F.F.B. had in fact been elected. As such he signed into law statutory instrument 125 of 2010 dated December thirty-first and the job of that committee I have outlined already to your viewers; which is reviewing and establishing the validity of the members of the F.F.B., the members of F.F.B. executive and also the validity of the decision by the F.F.B. to disallow the candidate that was put forth by the B.P.F.L.”

“Probably we could turn to the progress report of this committee. We understand that they are concentrating on the southern portion of the country right now.”

Ismael ‘Miley’ Garcia

“Yes, the committee has not submitted any report because according to the SI there are suppose to submit their complete report no later than January twenty-eighth. So what the committee has done up to this point is that they have visited the Toledo district and Stann Creek district and they have spoken to the executive members of the two members of the F.F.B. which are the Toledo District Football Association and  the Stann Creek District Football Association. In the case of Toledo, the only person they did not get a chance to speak to was the chairman of the Toledo District Football Association.”

“Can this investigative committee meet its own self-imposed deadline of January twenty-eighth 2011?”

Ismael ‘Miley’ Garcia

“It doesn’t look very likely at this point. As you know, the committee members are people who are individually employed—and at this time the chairman had had to leave the country and he will be out about ten or twelve days so that will definitely push back the date of the completion of this task. Most people have received their summons and they have come in and they have answered the questions that have been asked of them of the committee. And so the committee will be filing their reports so I think they should be able to complete their tasks.”

“Will Doctor Chimilio be interviewed by this body?”

Ismael ‘Miley’ Garcia

“The body hopes to summon all the executive of the F.F.B.—past executive. As you know the ministry has not recognized the new executive of the F.F.B.”

Folks we hope to bring you weekly updates as the investigative committee moves across the nation.

In cycling news folks, we seem to be caught in a stand off between the Belize Cycling Association under president Emile Moreno and the Weekend Warriors Cycling organization.  Our investigation reveals that both bodies have barred their respective members from participating in each others events.  The BCA is the legitimate body that runs cycling in Belize and has international affiliations while the Weekend Warriors is an organization of riders who are past their prime in the sport but still like to compete.  Frankly folks both bodies are good for cycling in Belize but their can only be one boss.

The BCA feels that the Weekend Warriors are competing with it for the very funds it needs to push the sport forward, after all if the elite local riders can’t win the Annual Cross Country Classics of late then its nearly impossible for a Weekend Warrior to snatch the garland.  We respect all sports and sportsman but in this fight we’re backing the Belize Cycling Association because the future belongs to the young and not the young at heart.

Meanwhile yesterday the Weekend Warriors held their own New Years Race that featured all of 56 riders and at the finish line we see Luigi Urbina of Typhoon jump out of the lead bunch to grad top honors, Barney Brown of BCB/FT. Williams held on for 2nd place, Big Mile Lewis of Truckers pulled up 3rd. In other cycling news this Saturday, 15th January the BCA resume its Saturday races so stay tuned.

Finally folks 5-a-side football is living large inside Sugar City so we took a look at Friday’s nightcap match at the People’s Stadium between Hellfighters and the Belize Bank. It’s Alfred

Anderson getting hold of this rebound to fire a left foot bomb that gives Hellfighters a 1-zip lead early in. Off the kick off Alex Cajun from long distance and the lead is doubled as Ropel Cocoum is embarrassed. The Belize Bank do pull one back when Rafael Huego convert from the penalty spot but it would be the only goal that Adrian Vasquez would concede in this outing. Here is Alfred Anderson scoring his second of the match as Hellfighters go on to mash Belize Bank in a 6 to 1 rout.

Jah Overall, I’m James Adderley.
