NAIROBI Cheap Mariners Jerseys , July 25 (Xinhua) -- Kenya managed only one Main Cup appearance at the Commonwealth Games despite appearing in all editions since rugby Sevens' introduction in Malaysia in 1998.
However, Coach Paul Treu is confident. Past results will have no effect on his team's ability to claim their maiden medal at the Club Games, when they take on Cook Island on Saturday in Glasgow for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
""I have come to Kenya certain they can do well and win at the highest level. Last season, I came in midway and was not able to steer the team to any major victories. But as we focus on the Commonwealth Games, the target is to get to the medal podium,"" said Treu on Friday.
Ever since rugby sevens was introduced to the Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpar in Malaysia in 1998, Kenya has attended all four editions over the years where they are yet to win any medals.
However, recent performances at the International Rugby Board (IRB) World Series have confirmed that the country is on the development path, and is a matter of when and not if they will win their first Main Cup title.
Kenya was eliminated in the Bowl quarters in their debut show in Kuala Lumpar back in 1998.
Still a full amateur side, Kenya managed to get to the Bowl Semis four years later in Manchester and improved to the Bowl finals in Melbourne, Australia in 2006.
It was a planned rise and four years ago, Kenya missed out on the bronze medal losing to Fiji in the third and fourth play-ff match in New Delhi India in 2010.
All this performances were achieved with a local technical bench with the team playing unit being full amateurs. That has since changed and a professional coach in Treu from South Africa will be guiding the team for the first time in the history of the competition.
Treu took over from Englishman Mike Friday who helped the team finish in fourth position in the 2012-2013 IRB World Series campaign, the country's highest ranking in the international competition. Last season, Kenya finished seventh after Treu came in mid-season to take charge.
""I have now got to know the team, their playing style and areas that need to be worked on. We are on the right path and we will deliver the results,"" said Treu.
Ironically, four of Treu's players have been in the last Commonwealth Games in Delhi 2010. They are former captain Humphrey Kayange, his brother Collins Injera, who is now the current vice-captain, Andrew Amonde (Captain) and Biko Adema.
Treu is yet to propel the team to new heights after taking over the side this season and this is likely to be his chance for redemption.
In Glasgow, he will come up against his native South Africa, Cook Islands and Trinidad and Tobago.
South Africa finished the IRB World Series season in the second place and have a superior win aggregate over Kenya in past encounters.
The two sides have met six times this season with South Africa winning five of those encounters and Kenya only beating them once at the Plate Semi-finals of the Scotland leg of the circuit.
Even though the two teams have met numerous times in the IRB circuit they have never met before in the previous four editions of the Commonwealth games.
Kenya will be hoping that the luck they had in Scotland in the IRB circuit will extend to the Commonwealth games in order for them to top the pool.
Kenya will, however, still have to be wary of Trinidad & Tobago and the Cook Islands who are the other two contestants in the pool.
Both sides are non-core teams in the IRB series standings, but still have the ability to cause an upset when given the chance.
WASHINGTON, May 6 (Xinhua) -- The Miami Heat beat the Brooklyn Nets 107-86 on Tuesday take a 1-0 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinal series.
The Heat won all the five games they had played in the 2013-2014 season playoffs, including a 4-0 sweep over the Charlotte Bobcats in the first round.
LeBron James had 22 points on 10-15 shooting for the Heat. Ray Allen contributed 19 points off the bench. Chris Bosh got 15 points and a team-high 11 rebounds.
Deron Williams and Joe Johnson had 17 points apiece for the Nets.
The second meeting take place on the same court on Thursday.
The only thing in this world that can create boundless joy, bring on waves of nostalgia, unleash pent up grief and relax a man completely in any kind of situation is a piece of beautiful music. The peace and tranquility that soulful music can bring is unparallel.
But the beauty of music does not necessarily make it simple. Infact, for a musician, maintaining the musical instrument and getting it repaired in case of any damage is a tedious job.
Almost all musical instruments are fragile in nature and hence are prone to damages like dents, cracks and broken strings. You need to contact a professional repairman whose expertise lies in maintaining musical instruments and tuning them and repairing them when needed.
There are things that you should consider when choosing the right repairman. Does she have professional training? Are hisher skills and expertise enough for the job? Is she disciplined? Is she honest? Is she someone you can rely on? Does she offer at-home repair services?
Having a reliable repairman for your instruments is quite beneficial but that does not necessarily mean that you have to rely on himher all the time. You have to do your part in the first place, which is to take good care of the instruments you own. Proper maintenance basics must be learned in order to do that.
What are the right maintenance basics or common tips when it comes to using a violin? First, you have to store it safely and don’t put it in a place where the temperature can be extreme. Just like yourself, you don’t want to stay in a very hot room since you are going to sweat profusely and perhaps become dehydr.
