Reading boss Brian McDermott bemoaned the decision to allow Chelsea’s all-important third goal to stand following his team’s 4-2 defeat at Stamford Bridge.Fernando Torres was in an offside position when he tapped in Ashley Cole’s low cross with 10 minutes remaining.“We didn’t deserve to lose and I thought we were gong to win it,” said McDemott.“I’m gutted the linesman has got the decision wrong for the third goal. It’s not a good night for him, and unfortunately that means it’s not a good night for us.“It was clearly offside, which is really disappointing. People make mistakes and he made one tonight.”See also:Late goals clinch dramatic Chelsea victoryDi Matteo happy despite Chelsea mishapsChelsea v Reading player ratingsFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

1 October 2013The Durban duo of Hank McGregor and Grant van der Walt claimed a record fourth successive K2 title in the Hansa Fish River Canoe Marathon on the weekend, while Abby Adie and Anna Adamova captured the womens’ title.McGregor and van der Walt started the final day with a lead of over four minutes over second placed Ben Biggs and Alasdair Glass, and succeeded in maintaining their advantage throughout the 36km stretch from Knutsford to Cradock.“We had a faultless day. It was a bit lonely and pretty cold, but we just looked to keep things conservative and not try be heroes and it all paid off in the end,” said recently crowned marathon world champion McGregor.‘I’m very happy’“Today was probably the best I have ever shot Cradock Weir and after that it was great to come home to get our fourth win in a row together and my fifth, so I’m very happy.”“We had a really good weekend together,” added van der Walt. “We both weren’t feeling great coming into the weekend after all the travel [from the World Championships in Copenhagen back to South Africa] but it was great to be back at the Fish and the win is obviously great!”While McGregor and van der Walt ran clear up front, there was a huge battle on for the remaining podium places.Biggs and Glass bravely tried their best to hang onto their second place. However, pre-race title hopefuls Len Jenkins and Greg Louw and the top international duo of Tobias Bong of Germany and Tomas Slovak of the Czech Republic had other plans.Charged through the fieldHaving charged through the field after starting the day in fifth place, Bong and Slovak proceeded to storm straight past Jenkins and Louw and into a probable second place finish, until disaster struck at the notorious Cradock Weir.“We caught Len and Greg and stayed with them for a while before we managed to open up a 30-second lead going into Cradock Weir,” explained Slovak. “Unfortunately we had some bad luck there though and swam.“The swim also broke our boat a little, so when we emptied and got going again we filled up with water all over again, and by the time got to Golf Course Rapid we were completely underwater and had to stop and empty again.‘A bit disappointing’“It’s obviously a bit disappointing, but that’s Cradock Weir, that’s the Hansa Fish and that’s paddling!” said an upbeat Bong. “We’re still very happy with third place and maybe if we can practice a bit more we can be back again in two years’ time and try to challenge Hank and Grant.”Jenkins, a six-time K1 Fish champion and local lad Louw ultimately claimed the silver medal after an improved day compared to Friday’s opening stage.“Yesterday wasn’t the best for us, but we managed to hold it together and Greg pulled us through,” Jenkins said afterwards. “It was much better today and man, what a nice race!”Having slipped back to fourth, Biggs and Glass then suffered the same misfortune as their international counterparts at Cradock Weir, which allowed Brandon van der Walt and Stu MacLaren to go past them and round out the top five finishers.Ladies’ raceIn the ladies’ race, Adie and Adamova showed a clean pair of blades to their chasers, Robyn Kime and Bridgitte Hartley, as they cruised to a commanding victory. It was Adie’s second K2 victory in a row after she won the 2011 title with Hilary Pitchford.The win was also an ideal 24th birthday present for the Natal Canoe Club star. “I couldn’t have asked for a better present,” she beamed afterwards. “We managed to hang onto a good bunch of guys early on and that really helped us.“This really was a special win because coming into the race I thought it was one of the toughest fields I have ever had to compete against, and Anna and I were a new combination.‘I knew we would go well’“Once we paddled together and saw just how well we sat together and combined I knew we would go well though,” she added.Adamova, who recently claimed a K2 bronze and K1 silver medal at the Marathon World Championships in Copenhagen, added a gold medal to her recent successes.“The past two weeks have been amazing, I would probably rank both Worlds and Fish on the same level. They have been fantastic,” an ecstatic Adamova said. “Abby drove so well and she is also my Dusi partner, so I’m very happy to have started our partnership so well.”Kime and Hartley won silver with Jenna Ward and Kerry Segal moving up one spot from their fourth place overnight to claim the bronze medal.Junior categoriesThe Juniors Boys’ race saw Louis Hattingh and Bryan le Roux hold off the Wilson twins, Travis and Tyler, while Jordan and Cana Peek claimed the junior girls’ title. Brandon Macleod and his Michaelhouse teammate Alan Houston came from behind the claim the U16 title.After a fascinating mixed doubles contest, Cape Town’s Tom Schilperoort and Samantha Murray claimed the win ahead of the Adie siblings, Alex and Andrew.Having stormed through the field on day one it was the Burden trio – Nic, Paul and Colin – who once again reigned supreme in the K3 contest as they overcame the challenge of Jacques, Jen and Cobie Theron.SAinfo reporter

Stella Artois today announced it is once again partnering with Water.org and its Co-Founders Matt Damon and Gary White on their second ‘Buy a Lady a Drink’ campaign.Stella Artois joins forces with Water.org and Co-Founders Matt Damon and Gary WhiteThe campaign aims to drive awareness of the global water crisis that affects 663 million people around the world who lack access to clean water, and calls on consumers to help leave a legacy as the generation that ends this crisis, once and for all.Video: Leave a Mark with Matt Damon and Water.org | Buy a Lady a Drink | Stella ArtoisThe ‘Buy a Lady a Drink’ campaign was first launched in 2015 to utilize Stella Artois’ global footprint to help positively impact this important issue. Water has played an important role in Stella’s 600-year heritage, and is an essential ingredient in the Stella Artois that is brewed today. Last year the campaign focused on women’s long journeys for clean water. This year, the campaign showcases the positive impact that access to clean water can have, while inspiring consumers to leave a positive mark on the world.“I’ve seen how the lives of women and their families can change when they get access to clean water,” said Water.org Co-Founder Matt Damon. “Access to water is access to education, access to work, access to the kind of future we want for all humankind. Thanks to our partnership with Stella Artois, this year’s ‘Buy a Lady a Drink’ campaign helps us tell this story – and gives consumers the chance to help us change it.”“Water.org is committed to making clean water accessible so everyone in the world has the opportunity to prosper,” said Water.org Co-Founder and CEO, Gary White. “We’re proud to partner with Stella Artois again this year to help us change more futures around the globe.”This global, multi-channel partnership launches today with several opportunities to engage in the effort.New Limited-Edition Chalices Designed by Local Artists in Kenya, Peru and HaitiStella Artois will release a new set of limited-edition Chalices designed by three artists from Kenya, Peru and Haiti Today, Stella Artois will release a new set of limited-edition Chalices designed by three artists from Kenya, Peru and Haiti: Daniel Cortez Torres from Peru, Wini Awuondo from Kenya and Michele Manuel from Haiti. Each design represents the specific water problem faced by women in their country.Consumers can purchase one of the exclusive Chalices for $13 at Amazon.com. For every Chalice sold in the U.S., Stella Artois will donate $6.25 to Water.org, up to 90,000 chalices, to help provide five years of clean water for one person in the developing world.“Water is woven into the very fabric of Stella Artois – it has allowed us to leave behind a proud brewing legacy, and we want others to have that same opportunity to leave a mark on the world,” said Ricardo Marques, vice president, Stella Artois. “Thanks to our continued partnership with Water.org, we have been able to change the lives of more than 290,000 people in the developing world through access to clean drinking water. Small actions, like the purchase of a Chalice, can have a big impact.”New Short Films The campaign will also feature three new short films. The first film showcases a zoetrope animation, a moving image device that features individual Stella Artois Chalices painted with different scenes of the positive impact that access to clean water can bring – such as growing crops, earning an income and going to school. The second film, featuring Matt Damon with the zoetrope, asks consumers to consider their own personal legacies and challenges them to become part of the generation that ends the global water crisis. Finally, the third film is a YouTube 360 video, which brings to life the experience of one woman and her family in Honduras via virtual reality on consumers’ mobile devices.Debut of New Documentary Series To further underscore the power of water and inspire social action, Stella Artois has commissioned 2015 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize Winner Crystal Moselle to create a three-part documentary series showcasing the impact of the global water crisis on women and their communities in Haiti, Kenya, and Peru.Moselle and her Academy- and Emmy Award- winning producer Fazeelat Aslam recently traveled to Haiti, where they met Marie, a midwife living in a community with no access to clean water. In her daily struggle to provide for her large family and service her community, Marie’s resilience became immediately apparent. Her story inspired the filmmaking team’s first chapter of an eye-opening look at the water crisis around the world.“Clean water is something that’s easily taken for granted. Many of us don’t realize how much it impacts a community’s livelihood and sense of hope for the future,” said Moselle. “On our visit to Haiti, we met so many amazing women dealing with the crisis on several levels. These stories of strength, hope and perseverance really resonated with us, and we hope they will inspire viewers enough to take action.”The films will be produced in partnership with Stella Artois, and with advisory support from Water.org. The series will debut to coincide with World Water Day.Stella Artois Leaves a Mark at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival Stella Artois will showcase its commitment to making a difference at this year’s Festival in Park City.• Water.org Co-Founders Matt Damon and Gary White will host a panel session along with Todd Allen, Global Vice President, Stella Artois. The discussion will be centered on the current global water crisis, and what needs to be done to end the long water collection journeys many women in developing countries have to make each day. • Stella Documentary Series filmmaking team Crystal Moselle and Fazeelat Aslam will lead a discussion about powerful storytelling through film. The duo will debut a manifesto video from their experience in Haiti and discuss their new documentary series. • The Stella Artois Filmmaker Lounge will highlight up-and-coming directors and films that empower women, and much more, to further inspire others to leave their mark on the world.To learn more about the global water crisis, how to leave a mark on the world and purchase a limited-edition Stella Artois Chalice, consumers can visit BuyALadyADrink.com.
