National swimming stars welcomed the building of a new Olympic swimming pool at a school in Tavistock Dirk Nowitzki Jersey , Devon in a development expected to transform the sport in the west of England
The school has been given the go-ahead to build an eight-lane, 50m pool to train Olympic swimmers and encourage the next generation of young hopefuls.
Made possible in part thanks to £706,000 of Sport England National Lottery funding, the pool will be used to train Mount Kelly pupils, local and regional state schools and swimming clubs from across the country.
Mark Semmence, headteacher at Mount Kelly, says: “This significant investment in the future of the school and for sport regionally would not have been possible without the support of Sport England.
"I am particularly delighted that the new pool will enable Mount Kelly to work more closely with the local and regional community, as 60% of the usage of the pool is designated for local state schools and swimming clubs.”
With an estimated 1 in 3 children in England unable to swim on leaving primary school, the pool is a vital part of bucking this trend. Scores of primary children from across the region will use the top-class facility.
Olympic and Commonwealth medal winner and ex-Mount Kelly pupil Sharron Davies MBE, said: "I am thrilled. This is a big step forward for British swimming. It will give a huge boost to the chances of more young people reaching international level as well as giving those who simply love the sport to come and enjoy themselves while getting fit."
British athlete Dina Asher-Smith is a major medal contender at the World Athletics Championships this week. Here we look at how her podium dreams were helped along by a pioneering talent programme
Positive headlines have been few and far between in the world of athletics this summer but one of Britain’s brightest young stars and graduates of the Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS) will be hoping to correct that at the IAAF World Athletics Championships this week.
Nineteen year-old Dina Asher-Smith lines up in the heats of the 200m in Beijing on Wednesday afternoon with every chance of progressing to the semi-finals and going on to enter the record books as Britain’s first female sprint medallist since Kathy Cook 32 years ago.
Podium dreams
Ensuring those with last 11 years has helped a number of athletes successfully balance the demands of employment and academic life with those of being a medal-winning hopeful.
After scooping her first international title at the Commonwealth Junior Games four years ago, Dina – pictured above competing for her club Blackheath and Bromley AC in 2010 (credit: Mark Shearman) – was singled out as a star of the future and nominated for TASS by UK Athletics Development Manager, Jo Jennings.
“I didn’t know much about the programme at the time or the support TASS provides,” says Dina. “But it was Jo that nominated me and to be selected was such a pleasant surprise and something I’m really grateful for.”
It’s hard to put into words the impact of the support and how grateful I am.

Further proof of the positive impact of the TASS scheme has been in the medal-winning exploits of its athletes and alumni.
Nearly a quarter of the 200 TASS athletes and alumni that competed at London 2012 came away with silverware, including 15 gold, while 63 current and former TASS athletes celebrated medal success at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

NAIROBI, July 19 (Xinhua) -- Scientists on Wednesday launched an international scientific alliance to fast track crop improvement in sub-Saharan Africa.


The Alliance to Accelerate Crop Improvements in Africa (ACACIA) will also contribute in helping African scientists to fasten solutions to local food security challenges.


"This initiative will harness the strengths of the global scientific community, as well as the recent advances in technology to find lasting solutions to the challenge of food insecurity in the continent," the Biosciences Eastern and Central Africa (BecA-ILRI) Hub Director Professor Jacob Mignouna said in a statement.


He noted that the initiative will help achieve food security and to improve nutrition through sustainable agriculture and provide African crop researchers and institutes access to cutting edge technologies.


The initiative that is a partnership between BecA-International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) Hub and John Innes Centre's (JIC) is set to build upon strategic and multidisciplinary partnerships to contribute to the achievement of the second United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs) of zero hunger.


"ACACIA will build on the existing BecA-JIC along with developing the next generation of African crops and also support African and British scientists," the Director of JIC Dale Sanders noted.


Sanders observed that the initiative will develop a team of scientists who have a deeper understanding of the agricultural challenges in Africa and can connect to African scientists to achieve significant impact through their expertise.


The partners called for strong linkages with African National Agricultural Research Systems, Consultative Group for the International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) Centre and advanced international research institutions to advance the improvement of important African food crops.


According to the Director of ILRI Jimmy Smith, the partnership will strengthen access to tools for crop improvement for the ultimate benefit of smallholder farmers in the continent.
