#PlaybyPlay; Skechers (NYSE: $SKX) Performance Elite Runner Edward Cheserek Ties Record in Carlsbad 5000 Win and Sportsman's Warehouse (Nasdaq: $SPWH) Names Robert K. Julian as CFO
Skechers (NYSE:SKX) celebrated the recent win by 17-time NCAA national champion Edward Cheserek at the 2019 Carlsbad 5000 in Carlsbad, CA on Sunday. Cheserek is a Skechers Performance elite runner, and tied the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) road world record with a finish time of 13:29. According to the press release, "Skechers Performance elite marathoner Meb Keflezighi headlines a group of local running industry leaders who took ownership of the event in 2018". Cheserek, who raced in Skechers GOrun Razor 3 Hyper shoes, commented on the race and Keflezighi's involvement:
"This race is legendary, and it's been a goal of mine to win, and today I not only won, but tied for the road world record and achieved a new road PB (personal best)-it's a great accomplishment. With Meb (Keflezighi) now involved in this event, it's even more special-he's in a class of his own and he's part of the Skechers family. Skechers has supported me from incredibly lightweight custom racing spikes to cheering me on today. I can't wait to race here again next year."
Sportsman's Warehouse Holdings, Inc. (NasdaqGS:SPWH) has appointed Robert K. Julian as Chief Financial Officer, effective April 24. Most recently, Julian served as Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer for Deluxe Entertainment Services Group. Julian said:
"I am very excited to join Sportsman's Warehouse as I have long admired its unique attributes within the sporting goods niche. I look forward to working with Jon and the senior management team to further enhance the Company's financial and operational performance, while also continuing to strengthen the Company's market positioning."
Pistons and Hornets Vie for Final NBA Playoff Slot, Magic Johnson Steps Down as Lakers’ President of Basketball Operations, NHL Playoffs Start Tonight and SportsLine Predicts Rory McIlroy as Masters Champion
Today is an important day for the NBA, being the final day of the regular season with one playoff spot yet to be decided. The eighth playoff seed is in contention between the Detroit Pistons and the Charlotte Hornets. Essentially, if Detroit wins their game against the New York Knicks tonight, they will have clinched the eighth seed. However, if Detroit loses and the Hornets win their match against the seventh-seeded Orlando Magic tonight, then Charlotte will replace the Pistons as the eighth seed.
Meanwhile, Magic Johnson stepped down as the LA Lakers' President of Basketball Operations yesterday. Johnson made the announcement in a press conference held before the team's final regular season game last night against the Portland Trail Blazers.
The NHL playoffs begin today, with the Columbus Blue Jackets facing off against the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Pittsburgh Penguins playing the New York Islanders, the Dallas Stars playing the Nashville Predators, the St. Louis Blues playing the Winnipeg Jets and the Vegas Golden Knights facing the San Jose Sharks. And tomorrow will see: Toronto Maple Leafs vs Boston Bruins, Washington Capitals vs. Carolina Hurricanes and Calgary Flames vs. Colorado Avalanche.
The first of the golf majors, the 2019 Masters, begins tomorrow at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta Georgia, and runs until April 14. CBS reports that according to a simulation run 10,000 times through SportsLine's prediction model, Northern Irish golfer Rory Mcilroy is the favourite to win with 7-1 odds. Surprisingly, Tiger Woods did not even make the top ten, with odds of 14-1 projected.
