Meb Keflezighi has won the Men’s New York Marathon which was run this Sunday, 1st of November 2009. At a time when the Marathon circuit is completely dominated by African athletes, Meb’s victory has come as a pleasant news for the host nation whose Alberto Salazar won the New York Marathon way back in 1982. Alberto Salazar won 3 straight New York Marathons in 1980, 1981 and 1982.

This was the first major Marathon title for the 34 year old American athlete who won the silver medal in Olympics 2004. He was close to winning the Marathon title in 2004 and 2005 when he stood 2nd and 3rd.

Meb completed the Marathon in 2 hours, 9 minutes and 15 seconds ahead of 4-time Boston Marathon winner Robert Cheruiyot of Kenya who stood 2nd and Jaouad Gharib of Morocco who stood 3rd. Another American, Ryan Hall stood 4th.

Keflezighi, who was born in the East African Nation of Eritrea received US Citizenship in 1998. 2 years ago, Meb suffered severe dehydration which threatened of ending his athletics career. However, he recovered with time and got back to training hard again and finally brought glory to his country by winning this Sunday.

The Women’s New York Marathon was won by Derartu Tulu of Ethiopia followed by Russia’s 41 year old Ludmila Petrova who stood 2nd.

In the Wheeler Races, 3-time defending champion Kurt Fearnley of Australia won the race for the 4th time. Edith Hunkeler of Switzerland won her fifth title in the Women’s Wheeler Race.

Legendary music super star, king of pop, Michael Jackson may have passed away a few months back but his legacy is here to stay. Michael Jackson’s concert movie “This Is It” was released worldwide today, simultaneously in 15 countries, and was received all over by scores of die-hard MJ fans. The movie premiere in LA saw celebrities like Will Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Paris Hilton, Paula Abdul and Peter Andre and the same enthusiasm was seen all over the world.

An icon for millions around the world, Michael died days before he was supposed to make a comeback on the stage with his “This Is It” series of concerts starting at the O2 Arena in London.

After the shocking demise of the musical genius, while fans were devastated, Columbia Pictures decided to start work on a concert movie of Michael Jackson using footage of hours spent by the King Of Pop preparing for the series of concerts before his death.

“This Is It” shows Michael rehearsing many of his songs which he was supposed to perform in his comeback concerts. The movie also promises to show fans the private and never-seen-before side of Michael Jackson and captures the true genius of this multi-talented, globally appealing music idol while he was at work preparing to put up yet another spectacular show, a show which was never meant to happen.

Kenny Ortega, who was MJ’s creative partner and director of his stage shows, is the director of the movie and it has been produced by Randy Phillips, Paul Gongaware and Kenny himself.

Michael also left many unreleased tracks which he was working on. This music is also being released as the “This Is It” Soundtrack – The Music That Inspired The Movie.

Tickets for the movie are on sale only for a short two-week period and the maddening rush of fans, in a way, to pay tribute to their idol is expected to make “This Is It” into a blockbuster…

Nick Adenhart’s sudden loss in a car accident has shaken the baseball community, his fans and all of United States of America. In a tragic hit and run case, 22 year old Nick, who was a rookie pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels, lost his life on early Thursday morning when his car was hit by a minivan being driven by a drunken driver. Condolences poured in when the news of Adenhart’s untimely death broke out – a tribute ceremony was organized with a baseball, a couple of bouquets and some grief writings from heart broken fans outside the Angels Stadium.

The crash happened when the car carrying Adenhart and three others was hit by a minivan coming from the west. The forceful collision threw Adenhart’s car out of the intersection and claimed all four lives. The minivan driver named Gallo tried to flee towards the east but was arrested near State College Blvd. Gallo already has multiple prior arrests for drunken driving, police asserted.

A baseball pitcher and right hander, Nick Adenhart was born in Silver Springs. When he was 15, he was one of the nation’s top high-school pitchers. Baseball America magazine named him “National Youth Player of the Year”. Soon after achieving this feat, tragically, Nick got an elbow injury and the doctors advised for a reconstructive surgery. Even then, the Los Angeles Angels (LAA) selected him with a letter of intent from the University of North Carolina after which the pitcher received his lengthy rehabilitation.

During his career, 61 of his 98 pitches were strikes and his smooth delivery was an asset for all of his teams. Even on the night before this untoward incident, Adenhart had pitched six scoreless innings against the Oakland A’s where his performance was appreciated.

This case of drunken driving has caused an irreparable harm to the baseball community and there need to be stricter regulations against such reckless drivers.

A poster among the bouquets kept at the memorial read, “No. 34, You are one more Angel in heaven”. Truly a tragic story.

Armenian – American billionaire Kirk Kerkorian has sold off some of his stake in Ford Motor Co. owing to the recent recession in the auto industry which reduced the value of his holding in the company by two-thirds.

Kirk Kerkorian’s investment firm Tracinda Corp. sold 7.3 million shares at an average price of USD 2.43 per share on 20th October. The investment firm is believed to have consulted an investment back for unloading the rest of the holding as well. Tracinda’s remaining 133.5 million shares have been valued at USD 311.1 million as on 20th October.

Kerkorian, who is 91 years old now, was forced to act on the continuously falling share price of America’s second largest automaker and take this decision to reduce Tracinda’s holding in Ford Motor Co. Tracinda intends to further sell off more shares of Ford Motor Co. to concentrate on businesses like gambling, hotels and energy which are its strengths.
