Wilt Chamberlain is best known for his sports fans as one of the greatest basketball players of all time. For people unfamiliar with sports and basketball especially the name Wilt Chamberlain may sound familiar because of his publicized life. What many people don’t realize is that before basketball became the focus of his life his first favorite sport was track and field.

Chamberlain was born August 21, 1936 and grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where he had eight brothers and eight sisters all from the same parents of father William and his mother Olivia. As a teenager growing up in eastern Pennsylvania Wilt praised that his first response to basketball was to regard it as “a game of savagery.” Games young Wilt Chamberlain loved the song and the track.

Before they reached high school athletic athlete Wilt Chamberlain was told to jump 6’6 “a mark that would win most varsity. At the same time Wilt put in intricate humorous numbers that are said to be understood to reach 22 feet. High-altitude runners can not reach 22 feet in a long jump and Wit has been told to reach that height from a wide standing jump in a wide range of motion. shown by Wilt was not limited to jumping issues.

Thanks to the long distance and the powerful running style used by Clainlain he was a wonderfully medium-distance runner like his 12 times in 49 seconds in a 440-yard race (once when he was on the right track) and less than two minutes at 880 yards (twice on each side) on average college player. Clainlain excels at all levels of track and field including running, jumping, and throwing. He is said to have fired a shot above 53 feet in his youth.

Clainlain grew very fast and continued to grow at a rapid pace. By the age of 10 the boy was already 6 ‘tall and when he started high school he was amazing 6’11. 240 pounds Clainlain can reach 9’6 “in the air just standing with his feet flat (no toes tip).

Wilt took his first love of track and field at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas while playing basketball there. The 7’2 “goliath ran in 11 second 100 yards and threw a 56-foot bullet. Without competition and excellence both in print and throwing his own championships it is no surprise that jumping festivals as Chamberlain tripled for more than 50 feet. successfully in the top jumping competition at the 8th Conference for three years in a row.

The 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing highlighted China’s problems with pollution in urban areas where overcrowding and overcrowding have contributed to a situation where the visibility of certain days has been greatly reduced.

Television footage of the Beijing sky covered with a thick cloud of smoke provides a grim reminder of the inevitable pollution of the fast-growing economy.

However, China has embraced renewable energy content with significant changes in solar energy. The legislation introduced by the Chinese government is designed to stimulate investment in renewable energy and has so far proved to be successful.

As a major producer of photovoltaic (PV), China has been a market leader in developing new commercial products elsewhere. Indeed, the Spanish market which experienced its rise following the introduction of the food rate in 2007 relied heavily on Chinese PV sales and the Chinese glut market that produced PV when the Spanish industry declined and failed to import the ordered solar crop. However, in an effort to alleviate pollution problems and help meet climate change targets, the Chinese government recently sought to increase the number of solar panels in the country.

To do this the government introduced a food tax system. Basically, a feed-in tariff (FIT) is designed to attract investment to a new solar plant by providing financial incentives to investors.

The FIT tool works on the basis that the law guarantees a fixed, premium limit for the units of electricity fed to the grid by solar power producers. Beneficial companies are obliged by law to buy solar power at higher retail prices, their costs being passed on to consumers. In China the machine has been successful in places such as Germany, Spain and California have also proven to be successful in China. In July 2009, the New York Times ran a headline, “Green Power takes root in China” announcing the arrival of the Chinese PV market on a global scale.

The arrival of China’s PV industry comes in the form of a national renewable energy law that stipulates that equipment must generate 8 percent of its capacity in renewable by 2020. The fact that this figure is 8 percent does not include hydropower. the importance of the Chinese now puts them in the green power. Increased awareness of long-term instability in traditional coal-fired power sources has prompted the Chinese government to take action to keep China more industrialized and in the future. There is also tension between private companies that undoubtedly see opportunities that have undoubtedly emerged in China’s renewable industry, with a growing growth in sectors such as wind and photovoltaic technology that will surely emerge in China soon.

The New York Times wished to use the Chinese government’s move to make comparisons with the weak efforts being made in Washington to promote a reformed sector in the United States.

Yes, in the United Kingdom, with food tax law, members of the green energy industry will be hopeful that government action in the UK will have the same effect on the Chinese market.

The New York Times has confirmed its almost neurotic view of China’s new growth compared to the US with a warning,

“You will not only buy your toys in China, you will buy the future of your power in China.”

China aims to generate 8000 megawatts of wind power by 2010 set to offset. If China continues to move towards green energy, they will surely undermine the current efforts in the West to develop their resilient and sustainable industries.

Vision 2020 can best be described as vision 20/20. That is the perfect idea in American style and the 20/20 vision can only be achieved by the new generation of India. It is well known that India is home to an important part of the world’s youth today. All the imperialists of the world view India as a source of artistic power. They view our boys and girls as a source of talent at a lower cost to their future gain. If the youth of India make sense and work in close association with the working class, they can undermine the plans of Imperialism and the Bourgeoisie. The looting of India can be stopped by political power in their hands. Workers, farmers, women and youth will ensure that there is work for all. They will ensure that the product is aimed at providing adequacy for all members of the community.

Unfortunately no one is bothered by dreaming such a vision. Martin Luther said, “I have a dream” and the dream is coming true. If he had not thought about this dream he would not have achieved anything in his life. To climb higher you have to think about climbing Everest. One can be no more than 10000 feet but it will not be achieved if you do not have the best dreams of climbing to the highest level of your office in life.

In recent years the country has come to look at India with renewed respect, recognizing its strength and prosperity globally. It is also the future when the mythical wealth of Indian art, culture, intellectual exploration and spiritual things will begin to show its full enlightenment bringing great success to the troubled spirit of modern India.

Is it a dream? Yes. Is it an impossible dream? No it’s not. This can be done by Indains Youth. Youth is the spring of Life. It’s years of discovery and dreams. When they dream they dream not only of their own good future but also of the wonderful future of the nation and of society as a whole. Their dreams take them to the stars and galaxies in distant unknown corners and some of them love their Kalpana Chawla they follow their dream, until they realize it and die for it because of the process.

If any sector of society in any country is critical to change, it is also young people. Patriotism comes naturally to young people, but they respond immediately to the call of Internationalism. The hope of the youth is:

1. A world free of poverty, unemployment, inequality and exploitation by man.

2. A world free of racial, ethnic, linguistic and gender discrimination.

3. A world full of design challenges and opportunities to overcome.

But these are not empty hopes. Modern science and technology and the proliferation of areas of economic cooperation between countries have brought these hopes to fruition. In recent times terrorism has emerged as one of the main threats to peace and democracy. Youths are drawn to terrorism. Sometimes it is not terrorism, but the struggle for freedom. This is how our neighbors try to justify their cross-border terrorist policy in Jammu and Kashmir. Youth organizations should launch an awareness campaign to show justification or allow terrorism anywhere under any circumstances.

The Role of Youth:

A. Youth can play a vital role in the realization of terrorism. If the energy, intelligence and resources of the youth are used fully and efficiently the country will prosper.

B. Youth will have to compete with the spirit of sport. Just look at the spirit of Internationalism prevalent in the cricket world. At the start of any cricket tournament, no matter which team wins, Cricket wins, Youth will win. A spirit of unity will prevail.

C. Young people need to be more concerned with business than with regular employment.

D. The hopes of young people can be realized only in peaceful conditions, only in a better and more cohesive world order.

E. Young people are full of healthy ideas. When properly motivated and guided they want it in their lives.

F. Young people have the ability to try things and the patience to learn from mistakes. It gives them opportunities to plan, make decisions and work to prepare them to face the realities of life.

G. Youth participation is important because youth are the power of the country. Young people recognize problems and are able to solve them. Youth are strong forces in social movements. They teach children about their rights. They help other young people to achieve a higher level of cognitive functioning and to become fit adults.

What vision should be for the new generation of India 2020? Vision 2020 states:

1. Instead of brain movement, we could be the brightest magnets in the whole world.

2. Our legal system can be a model of fairness, speed and integrity.

3. Our legislature can be an example of trust, far-sightedness and purpose.

4. Our neighborhoods can be cleaner with more municipal services.

5. Our youth can be Olympic champions.

6. We can get 100% Literacy.

7. Revenue per Per Capita can increase with Geometric Proportions.

8. We can get full-time employment.

9. We can make a name for ourselves by being the most transparent and honest nation.

10. We can be the most competitive Nation.

India can only be a developed nation if everyone contributes to its potential. Youth is a full test and with the full use of the talents of the Youth, India will be a perfect nation. Let’s have the same hope.

‘Youth is like a fire

It crawled forward.

Spark at first

Growing in flames

Light in the Blaze ‘.

Before he became a professional boxer, the famous Ugandan boxer John Paul “the Beast” Mugabi was only John Mugabi – a young boxer and thick, fast and promising. After winning a silver medal at the 1980 Olympics held in Moscow, 20-year-old Mugabi watched the show. Well-known British coach and manager Mickey Duff recognized Mugabi and immediately brought him in. Duff was one of many (including Uganda’s Charles Lubulwa who participated in 3 Olympic tournaments) who claimed Mugabi had been robbed of a gold medal. At the professional level, Mugabi’s toughness, toughness, and quickness in the ring would give him the nickname, “The Beast,” – which Mugabi described as unpopular, but which the country clung to.

It was in the Parish of the Sacred Heart in Nogales, Arizona, that Mugabi, during his training, became the middleweight world champion Marvin Hagler on March 10, 1986, where Mugabi was named Paul after his baptism in Catholicism (Clive Gammon, ” This Beast Is Beautiful, “in ‘Sports Illustrated’; March 03, 1986).

The Walnut Trees’ Semi-arid city of Nogales, bordering the Mexican border, is Arizona’s largest city. The small Rio Rico is ten miles north of Nogales, and it is here at the Sheraton Hotel that the Mugabi training camp was set up to meet Hagler. Mugabi’s mentor, who worked on his baptism, was their Anthony Anthony Clark– parish priest.

Back in 1976, 16-year-old Mugabi won a silverweight title after losing to American Herol Graham in the Junior Amateur World Boxing Championship. Interestingly, just a few weeks before the battle between Mugabi and Hagler, Graham ousted Uganda’s Ayub Kalule from the European Central Weight title title after knocking him out of the tenth round. The fight was to end Karule’s outstanding boxing career. Many wondered what the outcome of the fight was between Kalule and Mugabi. There is a 6-year-old difference, and Kalule was a god and mentor in Mugabi’s younger years returning to Kampala.

The 1976 Olympic Games, held in Montreal, were attended by many nations, including Uganda. Ayub Kalule was scheduled to fight for Uganda. He became a skilled boxer. He was also Cornelius Bbosa, a member of his team who later became known as Cornelius Bosa (Boza) Edwards, and became a junior-lightweight champion.

The highlight of the Games in Montreal was the last welterweight bout, on July 31, 1976. A young American “Sugar” Ray Leonard, who planned to quit boxing to continue his studies at the University of Maryland. and a long Cuban and stellar release record. Andres Aldama, who had dropped all five of his former opponents, was expected to win. But Leonard, like Muhammad Ali in his previous career, adopted the “flee-and-run” strategy, and was not happy at all and angered Cuba. With the Cuban charged, Leonard would throw a quick combination of solid and accurate punches and then step back. It was similar to the assassination of David-Goliath, which included the death of the Cuban people, and the taking of two compulsory numbers.

The welterweight bout in the boxing ring, on August 2, 1980, included the second return of experienced Andres Aldama. Among his most recent awards is a gold medal at the Pan African Games held in Puerto Rico last year. Aldama’s opponent John Mugabi, 20, was 4 years younger, less experienced, and less tested and less well-known. Each of the two boxers knocked out four of the five athletes who competed in the Olympics. John Mugabi was Uganda’s last resort of gold.

In the first round Mugabi proved to be the most active. He threw a lot of jabs, but the long distance south of Aldama kept most of them, most of them not hitting the target. Aldama seemed to be learning from his opponent, imitating him. The judges probably gave this round to Mugabi, just in an effort.

The second round saw Aldama emerge from his chair fighting hard and determined. He has become confident as the cycle progresses, opening up to Mugabi several times. Towards the end of the round, he caused Mugabi to stumble briefly. But Mugabi attacked bravely.

The third round was a war. Mugabi was head over heels in the fight, but Aldama’s delivery was crucial. Aldama was more accurate. Mugabi was tired in the face of the experience and thick and firm. He refused to knock, but the fourth round he thought could cause Mugabi to be fired. Mugabi was always strong and courageous, but his failure to defend himself was his own inadequacy.

The referee announced that the fight was 4-1 in favor of Aldama. The full fight is available on U-Tube. Thirty years later, the famous John Mugabi remains the last Ugandan to win an Olympic boxing medal.

The Olympics contributed greatly to the development of popular sports throughout the world, including the island of Japan. In 1906, modern sports festivals were just beginning in Japan. Knowing that all the runners were in need of the best running shoes, the Mizuno brothers set up shop. In 1912, Japan took part in the Olympic Games for the first time, and Mizuno shoes were recommended for release.

The Olympics have always been good for sports producers. At least for sports producers with a good product. And the average who conducts a shoe study suggests that Mizuno has a very good product. In addition, at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, ​​athletes using Mizuno products won 72 medals. The awards include 24 gold, 22 silver and 26 bronze.

Mizuno has been the talk of the town for technological advancement. In 1997 they introduced their Mizuno Wave technology. Wave technology uses a rocking plate, which leads to the best performance shoes. Then in 1999 the Mizuno Wave Rider ran a shoe and won the coveted Editorial Editor in Runner’s World magazine.

The Wave driver is not the only active shoe to earn a prestigious prize. Mizuno Wave Creation won World Athletes Awards in 2002, 2004 and 2006. One of the most popular and popular in the Mizuno line, this shoe uses the new Infinity Wave technology, which provides more flexibility, durability and durability.

Mizuno shoes have won many awards. Each uses new and improved materials and technologies. For example, the Mizuno Wave Inspire is a key to performance response. It’s not easy, it has a place to breathe well, and it won the ‘Best Partner’ award for the Refugee Country.

Mizuno has long supported female athletes. After all, the majority of Mizuno sports representatives are women. And Mizuno women’s running shoes use all the most advanced technologies, including BioLock, a heel alignment system that enhances performance by removing the heel heel and providing greater stability as a result.

Terrorism is a global problem – Will Globalist Elite use this as an excuse to cut off freedom?

We all know that there is sectarian violence in much of the Middle East, and on the African continent, religious persecution has not stopped. Then there’s the wrong racial cleansing, it’s hard not to call “Humanity” like oxymoron. The fact is that things have been going on since humans recorded their history, and perhaps long before it was realized that Chimpanzees Troops regularly attacked and killed members of neighboring armies, it would not be much worse than in the middle of the night if you were a member.

If we look up “terrorism” in WikiPedia we see a long list of terrorist acts and events that take decades, perhaps just the name, “Guerilla War” includes the same tactics and objectives, and that has been going on for a while. Rape and looting of villages are a well-known history as well.

In the Journal of Terrorism and Homeland Security – The Cold War, Vol. 19 No. 4, 2013 there were a number of articles on how stable countries are coping with the many challenges of terrorism – there were articles about Germany, China, Russia and the US and mention of events in North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, South America, Mexico, Canada and elsewhere European and Asian. We all know that there are incredible problems in the Middle East. Among the articles listed were;

1. “The Threat of Terrorism Against China and the Terrorism Response,” by Dr. Joshua Sinai.

2. “Terrorist Threats against Russia and its terrorist responses,” the author similarly.

3. “Are the XXII Sochi Olympics a success in Russia,” by William La Follette and Kinan Baki.

4. “German BKA (FBI Equivalent) is working against terrorism,” by Jim Weiss and Mickey Davis.

All in all, terrorism seems to live on an entire continent outside of Antarctica- and who knows if the ice is melting slowly and the time is warm, one will be the first to commit a terrorist act there too. Interestingly, in late 2016 the Pope visited and realized that it was the only continent where we have no written history of wars, or terrorism. I’m not going to hold my breath when people start to put a lot of people in there.

One could say there is no terrorism at the International Space Station, on the Moon or Mars at the moment, it is also probably based on the population, I mean, maybe like Locust Plagues, as long as you get more species in one place. But whatever the reason, such behavior is not uncommon in the community, and it is not surprising that it is difficult to prevent it. Not surprisingly, we need a lot of academic journals to be sure of it. But we still have trouble scratching to answer; Why?

After all, the chances of dying in a terrorist festival are very low, and no, that doesn’t make them a little harder, however, we spend a lot of time in our lives worrying about it. In the US you are at risk of dying in a car accident, MRSA hospital, or cancer. The fact is that we allow the media to instill in us anxiety and fear of terrorism, diverting our attention from the “real” things that can kill you.

If we live in fear, and, therefore, relinquish our rights to freedom, privacy, and the freedom or trade of any of these material rights, we give our power to those who promise us security and control over our lives. Because terrorism has spread around the world, and we have the world’s top people who love to rule the world – it’s a good reason and a bad plan to do just that.

Now these are the words of a paranoid man? No, really, this is just a little philosophy with your history of living talking, for it was Benjamin Franklin who said: “Those who can offer significant freedom, to buy temporary Security, do not deserve Freedom or Security,” not me.

Athletes were the most important thing in my life. After all, when I was fifty-five, standing on my own two feet, I had just tried on the Michigan Old Men’s Volleyball Olympics team, and there was a good chance I was going to do it.

Then tragedy struck. In a motorcycle accident, I broke my left leg. The doctors determined that she should be amputated. Before the operation, lying in a hospital bed talking to family and friends about what life would be like without a leg, a young assistant doctor named Sarah Scholl said, “Andy, what kind of football do you play?”

That was a silly question, but I told him, “The title of the Pro V1.” The next morning, a 12-pack of Titleist Pro V1 golf balls were beside my bed. Sarah’s gift gave me a glimmer of hope.

When I woke up after the operation, I was shocked when I looked down and saw two legs and ten toes. Fortunately, the doctors had decided that my leg was round enough to try to keep it. But there were still months of renewal. At the next job, I almost died at the table.

When the time came to move to a rehabilitation hospital, Sarah put me in an ambulance. I’m asking for your help, he said. “My father died a long time ago. When I get married, I want you to take me downstairs.”

“Sarah, no doubt I’ll never go anywhere. Besides, you don’t even have a boyfriend.”

“One day I will come,” he said.

Hope and love

At the rehabilitation hospital, where I was confined to a wheelchair, I received a phone call from John Wilder, my volleyball coach. “Congratulations to you, Andy, you’ve made the team! You’re playing in the High Olympics.”

I told her about my accident and waited for her to say she would remember being with me on the team. But Wilder shocked me: “You’ll be fine. I’ll play you if you get up.”

His words ignited sparks. I went into a routine with revenge. Seven months later I was able to attend the Olympic Games. Although I could hardly stand, John kept his word: he put me in the game.

It was time for my lunch, and I looked at my wife, Kay, sitting on the couch. He used to avoid my games. I can’t blame him; I always put games before him in my life. But today Kay was not the only one, she was in pain. When I looked at his bright smile, I was lost, right there in the court. Suddenly I realized why God allowed this accident. He was concerned about our marriage.

I gathered enough to serve. We won the game next time. As the competition grew, the coach had to dismiss me, but our team continued to win the gold medal.

Life of death

Back home, my health continued to improve. Then, suddenly, my liver stopped. In major surgeries, doctors passed it with a shunt. That saved my life, but the unwashed blood that reached my brain caused my hands to shake violently and I had to sit on them. I applied for a liver transplant and waited.

A year went by, and then two. There is no call from the implant hospital. How does one pray for transplantation? For me to live, someone had to die. What makes me better than someone else’s husband, or someone else’s father?

One day it dawned on me that this was not the first time someone had wanted to die so that I could live. Jesus did that for me. If God loved me that much, I would trust him with my future.

In what seemed to be a divinely inspired discussion, Kay and I learned that Indiana had twice as many registered donors as Michigan. We rented a room in Indianapolis and applied for a replacement. Within two months we received a call: a man died in an accident; I am one of ten candidates for the post.

Crossing the valley

The speed with which I recovered shocked the doctors. For the first time in five years I subscribed to a magazine in my name. But I pushed a lot to get back to normal. While I was sitting down, I tore the cuts in my abdominal muscles. During the emergency, the surgeons inserted me into their abdomen and replaced the muscles. The tube was inserted through the nostrils and down into the abdomen to expel fluid.

After the operation, I had to stay in bed together without moving or eating. Time has moved so slowly that i second The hand on the clock seemed straight. A day dragged … two days … three days … how long will this pain last? I never felt hopeless and sad like this.

About 4:00 in the morning on the fourth night – the longest night of my life – I cried out to God: “Lord, take me! I can’t do this now.” Kay was by my side, where he had been sitting faithfully since my accident. He muttered, “I don’t know.” By then Kay and I had given up altogether. We were at the bottom of the valley — the darkest hole we could think of.

Fifteen minutes later, our unexpected doctor walked into the room and said, “I woke up in the middle of the night feeling like something had changed.” You look over at me. “We can take out the tube.” At the end of the day I was walking. One month later, I returned to work permanently.

Jumping and walking are fun

My left leg was devoid of nerves, so I thought my volleyball days were over. But my technical gym had a vision. He tied my knees and ankles together so I could jump rope. I worked twice as much … then six … then twenty! Excited, I phoned the former volleyball team player: “Hey, Tim, I can jump!”

“Okay! We’ve had a volleyball tournament in Milwaukee in two weeks. Come and play?” That seemed impossible, but two weeks later, at the last minute, I decided to leave. When I arrived, my former teammates stood their ground. It was an emotional experience.

The first five games were tough, but in the sixth game I got the right set and the official kills. A few minutes later I blocked the game score. That taught me an important lesson: Don’t waste time trying to do the impossible. Do your best and sometimes it won’t work.

After the game, I thanked my former coach, John Wilder, for encouraging me in the beginning. John said to him: “You are the only one who deserves glory. “You didn’t give up.”

“Sure, John, I gave up, but God never gave up on me.”

In 2009, seven years after my accident, I received an email from Sarah Scholl: “I have a boyfriend – are you coming?”

What a joy it was to walk – not in a wheelchair, but in a walk — Sarah downstairs.

Erasmus Samuel A.O. Amukun was born on November 27, 1940 in Ngora in Kumi in Eastern Uganda. He is best known for his exploits as a collaborator with an international sprinter and as a geologist. He represented Uganda at the British Empire Commonwealth Games, the Olympic Games, and in East and Central Africa. Amukun is also credited with beating Kenya’s sprint champion and future Commonwealth Games (1962, Perth) with gold medalist Seraphino Antao winning.

In 1958, at the Commonwealth Games in Cardiff in Wales (July 17-26, 1958), young Amukun did not advance beyond five to twelve warm-ups in 100 yards. At 5 degrees heat in 9.9 seconds, in fourth place. But his teammate Benjamin Kiyini Nduga, who had finished before Antao, got ready and advanced to the semi-final match which was to end. In 220 yards, Amukun was second in eighth place (22.14) of nine in the first round. Later, in the fourth of six warm-ups in the last round of the last quarter in which he was fit, he was removed after finishing third in 22.1. But in the 4×100 yards, Uganda’s passing team Amukun, of which he was a part, finished sixth in the final round (42.1). Also on the transfer team in Uganda were Ben Nduga, Ignatius Okello, and S. Bwowe. They had advanced to the final round after finishing in third place (42,47) in the first round which was the last half.

Amukun, 19, was the captain of the Ugandan team at the 1960 Olympics in Rome. In the young Ugandan team, Amukun was the youngest, and 21-year-old Aggrey Awori was the oldest.

On August 31, 1960, Erasmus Amukun competed in the fourth of nine heats in the first 100m round where the top three in each heat would go to the next round – the last quarter. He finished third at 10.80, ready for the next round. Notably, in this first round, 21-year-old Ugandan Aggrey Awori (Awoori) who was competing in the third heat was removed after finishing fifth (11.09). Kenya’s Seraphino Antao (10.64) finished well first in the first round of the first round and then advanced to the final.

In the last quarter held at noon, Amukun was ranked second in four of the heats. He would finish four (10.75), and be removed because he was not among the top three finishers in the heat. But this will be the fastest he can officially run in the 100m. Antao finished third in fourth place (10.61) and advanced to the semi-finals. On September 1st Antao finished sixth (10.72) in the second round of the final, and unqualified in the final round.

The 200m race started on September 2, and Amukun was placed in fifth place in the first round of the first round where the top two finishers in each race will advance to the quarter-finals. Amukun finished in second place (21.38) and advanced to the last quarter. This will be his best time in the 200m. This time, Antao won the eleventh heat (21.44), easily making it to the next round.

In the last quarter held later that day, Amukun was placed in the top four. He finished in fourth place (21.47) and was eliminated from the semi-finals because he was not one of the top three finishers. Coming to fourth, but in the second heat of the last quarter it was Seraphino Antao (21.43) who was also eliminated.

Uganda also competed in the 4x100m relay scheduled for September 7, 1960. It was hot in the first round, and Uganda finished in fifth place with 41.90, but it had already been knocked out. In some of the other heaters, Poland and France were also unfit. The Ugandan transfer team also included Aggrey Awori, Jean Baptiste Okello, and Gadi Ado.

In the 1961 East and Central African Championships in the Nakuru area of ​​Kenya, Erasmus Amukun won 440 yards in 48.0 seconds. Samuel Amukun was part of the Ugandan 4×100 ward team that won 43.1 in Nakuru.

Toward the end of 1961, Amukun successfully completed the 2-year Cambridge High School Certificate, studying science, at King’s College Budo (Buddo) near Kampala where he lived at Mutesa House.

Sam Amukun competed in the annual IC4A (or ICAAAA, (Intercollegiate Association of Amateur Athletes of America) and men’s competition held at various colleges each year. Amukun was then a graduate student at Colgate University in Hamilton New York at IC4A in Villanova, Pennsylvania. 1964 at the end of May, Amukun won 100 yards in 9.7. 1964: 5).

At the summer Olympics held in Tokyo in 1964, 23-year-old Amukun would represent Uganda in the 200m, and in the last 4x100m. Placed in the second warmth of eight of the first rounds, Amukun finished fifth (21.55) on October 16 and was removed because he was not among the top four finishers in the heat. Kenya’s Antao advanced to the last quarter after finishing second in the third heat (21.52). Antao will, in the last quarter, be removed.

On October 20, the Uganda 4x100m relay team consisting of Awori, Amukun, James Odongo, and Amos Omolo won sixth (41.4) in third place in the first round; the team therefore did not advance to the semi-finals.

Revenge was fun at the annual IC4A tournament held in 1965 in Brunswick, New Jersey at the end of May. Here Horner of Villanova who lost to Amukun of Colgate in the 100m in 1964, won both races, with Amukun finishing third in the 100 meters. But earlier that same year, in early May, Uganda’s Ugandan Olympics won both track races in a track meeting where the Colgate Raiders competed against Syracuse University (Orange) at Archbold Stadium Syracuse. In mid-April at Cornel University against Colgate, record holder Amukun was beaten in second place in both runs by Charles Blaugrund (9.9 in 100 yards) second attempt in the 100-yd. The dash was enough to beat Colgate’s Sam Amukun, who holds the record for favorite encounters at the event. Amukun covered the distance 9.6 seconds the week before. At 220 sprint, Blaugrund (22.5) was again followed by a Ugandan.

Shortly before Amukun’s death in 1998, at the age of 57, he was in charge of exploration in Northwest Canada, Canada. Amukum graduated with a bachelor of science degree in chemistry from Colgate in 1966 while studying track and field. He will receive a degree in geology from the University of Manitoba in 1969. The title of his master’s theme reads: “Images of Gold Petroleum carrying veins from the Bissett area, southeast of Manitoba.”

Amukun returned to Uganda to work on the Kilembe mine in Falconbridge but fled to Canada with his wife in 1972 because of his lack of confidence and confidence in the control of Idi Amin’s dictatorial army.

After his death it was recorded that after leaving Uganda, for 25 years, Amukun worked as a geologist for the Ontario Geological Survey, in Norway and in the Urangesellschaft, and later started his consulting business. In 1996, he joined Northwest Explorations and became the chief research officer for Guyanese companies. He was a member of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum, Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada, and the Geological Association of Canada.

Samuel Erasmus Amukun compiled and published extensively and his books include: “Precambrian Geology, Little Marshall Lake Area” (1989), “Geology of Klob Lake Area, Thunder Bay District” (1984), “Geology of the Willet Lake Area Thunder Bay District “(1979),” Tashota Regional Geography, Thunder Bay District “(1977),” Gledhill Lake Regional Geology, Thunder Bay District “(1980),” Congolese Lake Geological Area, Thunder Bay District “(1980), and” Willet Lake ” , Thunder Bay District ”(1979).

Amukun was married to Daphne for 29 years, and survived with a daughter Nasheba and sons Settu and Mwenu.
