Jonny Wilkinson – The Real Story – Parts 5-8

first_imgFriday Oct 16, 2009 Jonny Wilkinson – The Real Story – Parts 5-8 About two weeks ago we brought you the first four parts of this brilliant Jonny Wilkinson documentary from 2002. Today we have the rest of it, allowing you to get to know the man a little better, as well as see him at his best on the field. In 2009, Wilkinson is currently revelling in his new lease on life with an injury free season at Toulon. As he says in his fascinating column, things are going great at the moment. “This is exciting. It is years since I have had any continuity in my rugby, but since my season has started here in Toulon I have finally been able to put together a run of games. Hes now played over ten consistently, without injury, a point that hes quite frank about, but he also knows that it could all change at any moment. Since the 2003 World Cup, I think the best run I’d had was six in 2004,” he said. “Not for a minute would I tempt fate by suggesting that the injury days are behind me – I still approach every game and training session as if it might be my last – but after such a long period of shut-out, the door is now open and I am ever keener to make the most of every opportunity. “People want to know how I rate my form, but I almost always say about six out of 10. When I get a bit farther down the road, I might get as far as six-and-a-half. Or maybe not. There is so much more that I am shooting for here; I am still nowhere near where I want to be.” Its fascinating to watch this documentary from back then, as we see Wilkinson and his mentors talk about the future and the goals that he has. Its possibly one of the best insights around in terms of what the actual man himself is like off the field. We also get to see that hes an absolute workaholic and is obsessive about everything he does, which is probably why hes considered to be one of the greatest flyhalfs of all time. Well end with a quote from the documentary, which Im sure will be remembered when he puts on that esteemed white jersey again at the end of the year. “He’s only what, 22, 23? He’s not going to reach his best till he’s 31.” – Steve Black, Newcastle Falcons conditioning coach, on Jonny Wilkinson in 2002.View parts 1 – 4 of the documentaryADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Player Features Related Articles 28 WEEKS AGO New Zealand rugby pod admit Owen Farrell… 29 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Bath prop launches Amazon documentary… 30 WEEKS AGO The highs and lows of Yoann Huget after he… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Bolas, Miller lead UW in tight 1,500m battle

first_imgThe fastest collegiate 1,500-meter race of the year led to two of the fastest 1,500 meters times in Wisconsin history Saturday.Juniors Jack Bolas and Craig Miller were part of an elite field that lived up to its billing at Stanford’s Payton Jordan Cardinal Invitational, as all five of the collegians in Saturday’s race surpassed what had been the NCAA’s leading time heading into the weekend.Bolas finished sixth in the extremely tight field, clocking a lightning-fast time of 3:37.64 to shatter his own personal-best mark and move up to No. 3 on the Badgers’ all-time list in the event. Miller was on his heels with an outstanding career-best time of 3:37.81, the fifth fastest in school history.Both improved their NCAA regional qualifying marks, with Bolas now ranking fourth and Miller fifth among collegians this season.The only runners ahead of them on that list are Saturday’s winner, Matthew Centrowitz of Oregon (3:36.92), third-place finisher Lee Emanuel of New Mexico (3:37.25) and fifth-place finisher Garrett Heath of Stanford (3:37.57). Four post-collegiate athletes also took part in the race.Jakutyte leads Badgers with personal best in high jumpWinning the high jump at the Arkansas Twilight Friday night, waking up early Saturday morning and enduring a long flight to Madison did not faze Monika Jakutyte at the Wisconsin Open.Jakutyte led the way for the Wisconsin women’s track and field team Saturday, winning her second high jump competition in as many days and doing so with a personal best and NCAA regional qualifying mark of 5 feet, 10 and three-fourths inches.“Today I was just trying just to get 5′ 9″ because I was so close last night, and I did a little more than that,” said Jakutyte, whose mark is fifth best in the Big Ten Conference this season.Jakutyte surpassed her previous personal best of 5 feet 7 inches, a mark she had been stuck on for a year and a half. She said she is not only glad to set a new lifetime best, but also that the regional qualifying mark might help her at the upcoming Big Ten outdoor championships.“It gives me more confidence,” Jakutyte said. “I don’t have that much pressure now going into Big Tens trying to qualify. So I can just relax a little bit.”Woltman, Badgers finish 10th at Big TensWisconsin senior Dan Woltman struggled in the final round of the 2009 Big Ten Men’s Golf Championship but managed to finish in a tie for 10th place with a four-round total of 291 (+7).Woltman shot a 78 on Sunday as the Badgers had their worst round of the tournament, carding a 306 as a team. That gave them a total of 1183 (+47), good for a 10th-place finish.Woltman was actually one-under par for the day and the tournament after making a birdie on No. 13, his fourth hole of the day. He then bogeyed three of his next five holes, making the turn at 2-over par.Woltman’s score of 291 for the tournament is the eighth-best 72-hole score in Wisconsin history. It was the 13th time in Woltman’s UW career that he has finished in the top 10 and his third top 10 in four spring events this season.— UWBadgers.comlast_img read more
