The Weekend Neos Kosmos : 19 September 2015
SPORT 28 THE WEEKEND NEOS KOSMOS | SATURDAY 19 SEPTEMBER 2015 Greek takes out 41st City to Surf Marathon Greek-born runner Magda Karimali-Poulos has gone one better than her second place win last year, taking out the women's title in Perth's 41st Chevron City to Surf Marathon. Karimali-Poulos was the first to cross the finish line in City Beach with a time of 2:58:48. "I had some problems in the last couple of weeks with a sore back, so I am very pleased with that win," she said following the race. Not too far behind the Syd- ney-based runner was Nera Jareb with a time of 3:01:36, followed by Rolenda Georgie in third place. Jareb said she was not surprised by Karimali-Poulos' win, stating that "Magda is very experienced. If I chased and fought to catch her I knew she would just fight back". In the men's category, Japanese runner Yuki Kawauchi defended his title for the second consecutive year, with a time of 2:16:23. The Chevron City to Surf Marathon takes place annually, commencing at Saint George's Terrace and hosts close to 40,000 participants.

The pay dispute has already disrupted the Socceroos' commercial arrangements and forced the Matildas to pull out of a tour of the United States, and now threatens to derail the beginning of the A-League season, which gets underway next month.

Spartans announce Best and Fairest night Club on a high after premiership triumph announces function to be held Friday 2 October Despite the disruptions, FFA boss David Gallop told Sky Sports radio he's "hopeful of a resolution" before the outset of the 2015-16 season. "It's pure dollars and cents, what we can afford to pay our players, and of course that is a position that we can't move on," he said. "This is about affordability." A resolution was not found on Wednesday, and negotiations are set to continue, with News Corp reporting the sticking point to be the PFA's demands for an increase in the salary cap along with a variety of allowances.

"Even we did not expect to lead the championship," said Trigonis. "This was my fifth Tornado World title and my 19th, including world and European ones both in Tornado and 470 class. I will try to go on sailing till I get the blackjack - 21 trophies!" Paschalidis added: "After this victory, it is a challenge for us to win the cup six times in a row and beat the record that Darren Bundock and John Forbes have." Having led after the first day, Nikolaos Mavros and Alexandros Tagaropoulos eventually finished third. Costas Trigonis and Iordanis Paschalidis finished first at the World Tornado Championship.
