2011 World Championships in Athletics – Women's 4 × 400 metres relay

The Women's 4 × 400 metres relay event at the 2011 World Championships in Athletics was held at the Daegu Stadium on 2 and 3 September. Friday and Saturday; this is a change in schedule from previous years. This might necessitate a change in strategy to allow for team members involved in other events; the United States held the two fastest relay times before the championships and had won the 2007 and 2009 world titles, as well as the 2008 Olympic gold medals. Jamaica and Russia – the only other nations to have won a world title since 2000 – were the other primary contenders. A Brazilian team had broken the South American record a month before the championships and was the third fastest qualifying nation. Great Britain and Germany comprised the other major nations at the competition. Twenty teams, instead of the normal sixteen, started this event, necessitating three heats instead of two. United States was an easy winner in heat one, with Ukraine edging out neighboring Belarus for the second automatic qualifying spot, but Belarus qualified on time.

Russia, with the fastest time, was an easy winner in heat two with Nigeria taking the second automatic spot and Czech Republic taking the second time qualifier. Jamaica and Great Britain separated cleanly from their competitors in heat three. In the final, the United States led off with previous world champion Sanya Richards-Ross, who handed off to silver medalist Allyson Felix in the lead. Felix extended the lead with Russian Natalya Antyukh and Jamaica's Davita Prendergast chasing about 5 metres back. Prendergast passed a fading Antyukh, who had charged after Felix and was slowing, just before the handoff. Novlene Williams-Mills solidified Jamaica's hold on second place during the third leg. On the anchor leg, Francena McCorory burst away from the handoff, extending the lead to 10 metres and discouraging a challenge. McCorory paid for that burst on the home stretch, but still maintained the 5 metre lead at the finish. Jamaica knocked a second off their National record. On 21 June 2017, Russia forfeited the bronze medal following the disqualification of Kapachinskaya.

The medal was reallocated by IAAF to Great Britain. Qualification: First 2 of each heat plus the 2 fastest times advance to the final. 1 Positive drug test of Kapachinskaya 2 Positive drug test of Yefremova Relay results at IAAF website

Henry Munro (loyalist)

Henry Munro was a chaplain in the British Army who became a missionary to the Mohawk people during the 18th century. Henry Munro was believed, by his son-in-law Donald Fisher, to have been the son of Robert Munro who in turn was the son of Alexander Munro, Laird of Killichoan. However, historian Alexander Mackenzie does not mention Henry Munro as a son of Robert in the Munro of Killichoan chapter of his book, History of the Munros of Fowlis. Fisher and Mackenzie give different lineages for the connection of the Munros of Killichoan back to the Munros of Foulis Castle. According to Mackenzie the said Robert Munro was the son of Alexander Munro, 2nd Laird of Killichoan and that the Munros of Killichoan descended directly from George Munro, 10th Baron of Foulis. According to Fisher, Henry Munro's father, Dr Robert Munro, was the son of Alexander Munro, Laird of Killichoan and that the Munros of Killichoan descended directly from Sir Robert Munro, 3rd Baronet. Mackenzie does however state that in 1723 a woman called Mary Bain complained to the Kiltearn Session that Robert Munro, son of Alexander Munro of Killichoan, had fathered her child, which Robert denied, but that the Session ordered Robert Munro's servants to assist Mary Bain.

In contrast to Mackenzie's account of Robert Munro, Fisher states that Robert was a physician by profession, joined the royal forces, under Lord Loudon during the Jacobite rising of 1745 against Bonnie Prince Charlie. Fisher goes on to say that Robert served the whole of the long and fatiguing campaign of 1745, suffered exceedingly from exposure and privation, died from the consequences the following year, quite a young man. Robert's gravestone dated 1744 with his initials and a Munro Eagle was believed to have been at the Cille Bhrea church, or St. Brig's Chapel or St. Mary's, but since 1966 it has disappeared. Henry Munro became a chaplain in the army serving in America. In 1765 he changed to the Church of England, becoming a missionary in the New York frontier and had considerable influence among the Mohawks, he was imprisoned for his Loyalist sympathies, however he escaped and returned to Scotland. Henry Munro's former home Killichoan House, was burnt in 1982, although it had been renamed Mountrich by owners.

The remains of the old chapel at Killichoan were destroyed by the Highland Railway. Clan Munro Historic Environment Scotland. "Mountrich ". Canmore

1626 University of Cambridge Chancellor election

The election for the Chancellorship of the University of Cambridge, 1626, chose a new Chancellor of the University of Cambridge. There were two candidates for the post, George Villiers, 1st Duke of Buckingham, Thomas Howard, 1st Earl of Berkshire; the election was brought about by the death on 28 March 1626 of the previous Chancellor, the Earl of Suffolk. A past Lord High Treasurer who had fallen from office, Suffolk had owned Audley End House, near Cambridge, said to be the largest private house in England, at the time of his death was Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire and of Suffolk. Although holding a ceremonial position, the Chancellor was influential in the University in many ways, monarchs of England liked to have their supporters in such key positions. Charles I had been on the throne for a year. Suffolk died at his great house at Charing Cross, so that the news came to the court before it reached the University; the day after the death, 29 March, the chaplain of George Montaigne, Bishop of London, arrived in Cambridge bearing a message from his master to report that King Charles wished to see his father's favourite Buckingham elected as the new Chancellor.

However, Thomas Howard, 1st Earl of Berkshire, one of the dead man's eight sons, decided to contest the election. A fierce contest ensued described by James Bass Mullinger as "essentially one between the two great theological parties of the time". Buckingham was supported by Leonard Mawe, himself appointed by the King as Master of Trinity, the most important college. On the morning of the election, Mawe summoned all the fellows of Trinity and pressed them to vote for Buckingham; the University's Statutes of 1570 gave the heads of houses considerable influence in such elections, chiefly because there was no secret ballot, of all the doctors of the University in residence only one, Dr George Porter, President of Queens' College and Regius Professor of Civil Law, voted for Berkshire. In the event, many fellows of colleges who were expected to do abstained by staying away from the election. Buckingham was with a majority over Berkshire of only three votes; some men present doubted the result and thought of challenging it.
