Celades: “It has cost us a lot since the beginning, it was a bad day”

first_imgWe are aware that we have not been at our real level and to which we can give. It has cost us a lot since the beginning. It cost us to defend that talent of Real Madrid, link plays, have continuity and reach the opposite area.Why didn’t the team give its size?We had a bad day. We have lacked to be more active. When you play against a team like Madrid you have to have more activity. We weren’t good at any stage of the game, with or without the ball. The final consequence is the result. The players fought until the end, but it was not the day. What analysis do you make of the match? The first goal came from an improper dismissal of a team that plays such a match.Yes. It’s true that until that moment we weren’t too good either. But that goal has hurt us because of how it happened. It has cost us to recover. They are things that cannot happen, but they happen.Has the Madrid approach surprised you?No. We talked about what could happen, playing with all the midfielders and only one center forward. It was similar the first half hour in Mestalla.How does the Arabian team leave?We must move forward. It is a time that is not easy because it leaves you in a bad body, but you have to prepare for what is coming. Now to rest and prepare for the game against Mallorca. There is no other.Do you have any instructions on prioritizing or not the Copa del Rey over the League?Do not.Was the public’s support for Real Madrid influenced you?No. What influenced us was the game.last_img read more

Jim Duncan Track Resurfacing Project Continues

first_imgStory Links Jim Duncan Track Update – June 16 Drake University’s iconic Blue Oval is undergoing a facelift this summer as a new state-of-the-art Jim Duncan Track is being installed inside the venerable stadium.A new Mondo Super X surface will be placed upon the existing track, guaranteeing that the Jim Duncan Track remains a world-class competitive venue for years to come.The new track, which will bear the familiar blue hue of its predecessor, is the same surface that the 2012 London Olympics and 2008 Beijing Olympics were contested on. The prefabricated synthetic rubber surface is composed of two layers vulcanized together to produce on seamless surface. Designed to produce superior athletic performance, the Mondotrack surface provides the optimum blend of energy return and comfort for both sprint and distance events and guarantees and ideal combination of shock absorption and elasticity for jumpers.Two weeks ago, crews began to sand and prep the existing surface while addressing areas that needed additional attention prior to the installation of the new surface. This past week, installation of the new surface started with the home stretch of Jim Duncan Track along with the surfaces behind the Johnny Bright Field endzones and the stretches along both sidelines. The project’s progress will be updated throughout the summer on www.GoDrakeBulldogs.com.Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more
