*In the first semifinal of the men’s 100m, an event that offers qualification opportunities for next year’s edition of the Sport Society Classic, celebrated Katudan sprinter Danijel Kavran took the lead in an astounding time of 9.96 seconds, well ahead of a would-be silver shielder from the former ULT (10.16) and South Baba’s own Howie Ellison, who finished third in 10.21 seconds. After embracing the other runners and amidst the roaring of the stadium crowd, Ellison said to JTN cameras: “Sorry it wasn’t possible, I did my best. I gave it all”*

*Meanwhile, Kavran’s compatriot Sabina Modric will seek to replicate his performance and advance to the women’s 100m final in what is expected to be a tough competition that, for the first time in seven years, has no South Baban sprinters. Athletics South Baba (ASB) president Ciro Hughes has called this a “wake-up call” and ordered a complete revamp of their SSC trial tournament structure*

*In their first game against their South Baban group colleagues, TyGerria’s Bostonian Lions basketball squad has cruised to an easy victory (91-78) that helped position them as the top hoops team in the Sport Society Classic after a 17-0 run in the first six minutes of the fourth quarter sealed the host nation’s fate. South Baban point guard Wisdom Waller gave a sublime performance, one of the best of his SSC career, scoring 32 points and getting seven rebounds. 20 of his points occurred during the game’s first half. Team SB coach Lach Slater, who personally handpicked the team against the wishes of Basketball South Baba (BSB), took full responsibility for the defeat, saying: “The guys did my plays. They played off my strategy. It’s all on me. Next time we’ll be ready. Now it’s our job to start training for that game”*
