Michigan track

Coach Allen: It started out a beautiful day. Then the wind started moving and
made everything cold! The athletes did a good job staying warm before their
races. There was a computer crash during the 200m run, so there are some times
missing.?

elite deaf athlete, considering retirement

part of newspaper story

Joe Swail to consider retirement from professional snooker after 10-1
defeat

Belfast’s Joe Swail says he is strongly considering retiring from snooker
after he dropped off the professional tour following a 10-1 defeat by Joe
O’Connor in the World Championship qualifiers.

The 49-year-old, who is partially deaf, has been suffering from tinnitus.

Having started his professional career in 1991, Swail reached the
semi-finals of the World Championships in 2000 and 2001.

The Northern Irishman dropped off the professional tour in 2017 but
returned having obtained a new tour card through qualifying school.

“I don’t think I would be going to qualifying school,” said Swail.

“I have been there and done all that, I don’t think my body can take it
anymore.

stats sheets this season. Do not know why? Red shirted or
injured or no longer on team or coach’s decision?
