Swim team successful at
Pierre Hathaway, of Carson City, August Motmans, Ashley Jones and Harry Goldsmith, of Glenbrook, recently swam well in the Pacific Masters Long Course Meters (50 meter pool) earlier this month in Santa Cruz, Calif. The 4-person team known as the S.E.X. (Severely Elderly Xercisers) Masters relay team of the Alameda Masters set an world record in the 400 medley relay for the 320-339 age group at 7:56.60. FINA started recognizing world records in the 400 in 2010, so some United States Masters Swimming national records are faster than the existing world records. The USMS record stands at 7:34.79, by Coast Masters in 1998, according to Swim World Magazine.
Including the relay events, Goldsmith won four events and had one second. Hathaway garnered four wins and two thirds. Both Hathaway and Goldsmith regularly workout at the Carson Aquatic Center.
Rural Rumble set
for Aug. 27
The fourth annual Rural Rumble, presented by the city of Fallon and Let’s Get It On Promotions, is slated for Aug. 27 at the Churchill County Fairgrounds.
Last year, the Rural Rumble featured several mixed martial arts bouts, but Terrance Lane of Let’s Get It On Promotions, said only boxing will be featured this year.
“We are thrilled to be presenting the fourth annual Rural Rumble once again in Fallon,” Mayor Ken Tedford Jr. said. “Boxing has played an important role in this area for over a century, and we are proud to continue the tradition.”
Headlining the card is Northern Nevada favorite Derek Hinkey (8-2, 7 KOs) of McDermitt, Nev. Hinkey will be making his highly anticipated return to the ring after a prolonged layoff due to a hand injury from his fight against Ariel Espinal in 2009.
“It just never really healed correctly and caused me discomfort in my past two fights,” Hinkey said. “But I’m 100 percent now and chomping at the bit to get back in there.”
Hinkey, who lives and trains in Las Vegas, stayed in shape and in the gym while allowing his hand to heal. He has trained with several high-profile boxers and MMA fighters recently to keep his game sharp.
Hinkey will need his best as he takes on the experienced and tough Anthony “Powerhouse” Bartinelli (20-14-2,13 KOs) of Phoenix, in a six round middleweight bout. Bartinelli is no stranger to fighting top names in the middleweight division, and will prove to be a test for Hinkey.
In a light-heavyweight match-up, Reno’s Carlos Gaytan (2-0-1, 2 KOs) will be facing San Jose’s Anthony Johnson (4-0, 1 KO). Both fighters come into this fight undefeated.
Returning to the ring is Junior Middleweight Jose “Chuy” Elizondo (1-0) of Carson City. Elizondo, who was a stand out amateur, scored a spectacular shut-out decision over Rodrigo Espinoza on April 29.
In a separate bout, highly regarded amateur Carlos Vasquez of Reno will be making his pro debut against Vincente Medellin (1-0) of Los Angeles. Vasquez, who’s brother is highly ranked amateur Santos Vasquez, decided that his aggressive boxing style was better suited for the professional side of boxing. Vasquez versus Medellin will take place at 112 pounds.
In a local boxing match-up, cruiserweights Carey “Bubba” Dupree (0-1) of Reno, NV will be facing Jack “The Motor” Montgomery (0-1) of Winnemucca, NV.
More details will be released soon.
