As the final winter echoes from Pyeongchang fade to history, Island athletes turn their attention to the beat of summer, beginning next month at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on Australia’s Gold Coast, through to the big prizes at Tokyo 2020. The last time Celina Toth was on the boards in Gold Coast, she won silver in the fall at the FINA Grand Prix diving meet. The last time she was on the boards at a multi-sport event, Toth won two medals last summer in the 2017 World University Games.
Most elite Island athletes who are internationals have the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo as their ultimate goal. For Olivia Brodie, the dream extends far beyond that, to the 2024 Paris and 2028 Los Angeles Summer Olympics. That is because the 12/13-year-old, 35-kilo karate national champion is only in Grade 7 at Cedar Hill Middle School in Saanich. “If Olivia stays focused, absolutely her prime will be at Los Angeles in 2028,” said her coach, Richard Mosdell, chief instructor at Kenzen Sports Karate.
EVERETT 8 VICTORIA 1 The Victoria Royals perhaps tempted fate by playing a team clad in green on St. Patrick’s Day, and one with something to play for. Many of the Royals’ supporters were decked in emerald T-shirts, hats and flashing costume jewelry on Saturday at Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre to look like Everett Silvertips fans. The game itself, an 8-1 Silvertips victory, was drained of drama beforehand for the Royals.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
