Does anyone actually know what happened to the two Olympians that took part in London 2012, did they return Somalia, are they training for Rio 2016 or are they claiming asylum in London because of Al shabshit.

SOMALIA: National basketball team beats Burundian and Kenyan teams in Africa’s ‘Zone V’ tournament

MOGADISHU (RBC) The Men’s National basketball team of Somalia has on Wednesday showed a great wonder at the ongoing Africa’s Zone V basketball tournament after crashing their Burundian rivals by 98-80 points in what seems to be symbolising the return of Somalia’s lost power in African basketball.

Hundreds of cheering chanting Somali fans have occupied the National stadium in Dar Es Salaam hours before the match kick off on Wednesday. They were chanting up with Somalia, Somalia has fully revived and recovered from years of conflicts, the trophy is heading to Mogadishu and other slogans those gave moral support and encouragement to their Somali boys.

The Somali team has been dominating the whole match from the very beginning until the referee has announced the whistle showing the end of Wednesday’s hotly-contested match.
Wednesday’s match was more interested and more populous that Tuesday’s match against Kenya which ended in 81-79 in favour of Somalia, as hundreds of Somalis who left from Kenya and Uganda reached Dar Es Salaam earlier on Wednesday in a bid to show support for the Somali team.

The president of Somali Sports Press Association and the deputy president of Somali basketball Federation Abdi Aziz Godah Barre who talked to the media has fully lauded for the huge victory.

“It is was a very long time ago since our people have enjoyed in such victory, the Somali basketball federation with the help of its former players and members of the Diaspora community have spent a lot in building such strong national team whose performance made all Somalis happy, because we have achieved victories in two successive days” Mr Abdi Aiziz Godah Barre mentioned.

He said that in accordance with the team’s performance and strengthen he was very hopeful they will score more other big victories in the future.

For his part the Somali consul to Tanzania Dr. Mohamed Diriye Elmi who himself has been at the Stadium to watch Wednesday’s match said that the Somali boys helped the restoration of the country’s lost publicity.

“They made me very happy today and yesterday, because they won and took the Somalia’s blue flag up to the blue sky—I am really very proud of what these young boys have done for the country, they are now at the semi-final and I am very hopeful they will win next match” Somali consul to Tanzania Dr. Mohamed Diriye Elmi told the Somali Sports Press Association via phone from Dar Es Salaam on Wednesday evening.

On Friday the Somali national team will play against Rwanda.

SOMALIA: 2013 football year starts in the capital

Quote:
Mogadishu (RBC) Somalia’s 2013 football year has partially started with the opening match of the division B league played here in Mogadishu on Friday, as the Division A league is being kept on pending until FIFA has completed the construction of the country’s old faculty ‘Stadium Banadir’ where the top level league will take place, according to Somali Football Federation Secretary General Abdi Qani Said Arab who talked to the media in Mogadishu on Friday.

The secretary General who talked to the media during the Division B league opening ceremony Friday noted that the C level league will start on Sunday the 21st of April and both competitions will be taking place at the Somali University Stadium while, the country’s topmost and the most populous football league is awaiting until the completion of Stadium Banadir reconstruction.


“Today we are here to launch the second division league followed by the 3rd division which is slated to commence over the weekend—our intention was to hold the three competitions in the same time, but we are sorry to announce that the Division A league has been postponed, because of Stadium Banadir is not yet ready for hosting a tournament and we are very hopeful that FIFA will quicken the conclusion of the reconstruction work of the Old facility” SFF secretary General Abdi Qani Said Arab accentuated in his media briefing at the ill-equipped Somali University Stadium on Friday.


Secretary General Abdi Qani Said Arab praised the authorities of the SFF-affiliated division B & Division C football clubs who he said have played a key role in the implementation of the federation’s policy of creating young age and fully talented players as part of strengthening SFF youth development programs which have so far yielded very positive results.

“Young boys of 15-17 years of age are expected to be representing the division C clubs in the upcoming competition, while the division B clubs have already come up with boys of 18-20 years of age, so on the behalf of Somali Football Federation I am here by confirming that our clubs had taken seriously and fully implemented our policy of creating young age footballers” Secretary General Abdi Qani Said Arab stated.

For his part Somali Football Federation President Ali Said Guled Roble indicated that the current league is fully expected to be more interesting and more competitive than previous leagues and that is because of the great and huge preparations made by the participating clubs so far.

“I know that well-prepared, talented and young players are here whose first performance fully satisfied the SFF authorities and the thousands of fans here, as I have known from the first half of the opening match today” Somali Football Federation president Ali Said Guled Roble told the media after the end of the first half of Friday’s opening match between Al-Beder and DBG.

Each of the clubs tried their best to win Friday’s opening match in a bid to accumulate the 3 points that a win of a football match brings, but the very competitive opening match ended in a stalemate of 0-0 draw with each club leaving with only a single point.

The success of Somali National Taekwondo Team continues as they won more medals.




Somali Taekwondo National athletes representing the country for International Schaffhausen Open Championship in Switzerland have won a gold cup and two silver medals adding to their previous honours won in Egypt and Germany earlier this year.

Faisal J. Aweys who has been competing in the senior competition has won a Gold cup after winning 3 fights against German and 2 Swiss fighters.

“The second Swiss fighter gave up the fight after Faisal J. Aweys showed that his level was too high for him. Faisal was continuously winning points against all of his opponents kicking their head loads of times, for instance Faisal won over twenty points in his second fight” Said the delighted coach Elton de Souza.

Mohamed Deq Abdule who has been competing in the adult category for the first time thrashed a German fighter in the first round of the fight after the German gave up the fight losing 6-0.



Mohamed lost 4x3 in the final against the real Swiss Champion. According to the organisers and his coach this was a very good fight for Mohamed who fought in this category for the first time. Mohamed turned 17 on Saturday and to fight against a 28 year old champion the way he did shows his dedication and desire to win for his country.



Mikail Salah, the youngest Somalian Taekwondo Fighter is only 11 years old and has a dream to represent for his country in international competitions and one day go back and help in his native country. Mikail won silver medal which indicates that he has a great future in the taekwondo.

Somalia vs Burundi

Somalia routs Burundi and faces Rwanda in the semis

BY KRISTIAN SANTIAGO

Somalia's Faisal Aden (193-G-89, college: Washington St.) netted 32 points and pulled seven boards to clinch the semi-final ticket for his country. Barstow Community College's Abdi Faras (203) added another 28 and 9 in the 98-80 rout while Yusuf Qaafow (190-G-87) chipped in 12 for the unbeaten newcomers who are facing Rwanda in their next match-up for the Zone 5 crown.

Rwanda emerged as winners out of their game against the hosts from Tanzania, whom they beat 70-56 behind 28 points by Kenny Wilson (193-G-84, college: Boise St.) and 24 points of Brad Cameron (193-G), their U.S. American imports. Egypt edged Uganda 80-67 to finish its group on top. They are going against Kenya in the other semi-final game and the Pharaohs are the team to beat in this tourney.

Somalia vs Kenya

Quote:
Somalia returns to the basketball scene with a huge win

BY KRISTIAN SANTIAGO

As indicated in my previous post, Somalia's team which is currently making strides in Tanzania at the African Championship-qualifiers, has a lot of talent on the roster.
It became evident to fans, journalists and opponents after their "shocking" 81-79 winner over favorites Kenya yesterday in Dar es Salaam.

Led by San Diego-based Abdi Faras (203) and Faisal Aden (193-G-89, college: Washington St.) who netted in 26 and 20 for the war-torn country, the Kenyans were simply surprised early on with a 19-9 run in the first quarter and even though they managed to bounce back a bit to win the second quarter 26-21 and the third with 28-20, Somalia returned back at the right moment to win the last quarter 21-16 and managed to clinch the "W" at the end of the day.

Burundi is up next for Somalia, and with a possible win, the chances increase to clinch a spot in the African Championships in the Ivory Coast this year. The last time Somalia participated in the major continental event was back in 1983.

Somalia finishes outside the medal ranks - Egypt punches the ticket for the Ivory Coast

BY KRISTIAN SANTIAGO

Kenya clashed again with Somalia for the bronze and came out victorious after losing to their neighbours 78-81 in their first encounter in the group-stage. Griffin Ligare (174-G-85) top-scored for Kenya with 23 points while Faisal Aden (193-G-89, college: Washington St.) clicked in 25 for Somalia.
