Golf Teen Sensation, Zakiya Randall, ‘Z’ – a WONDER-2-See, gives back on-and-off the TEE

As much as teen golf phenom Zakiya “Z” Randall of Atlanta impresses with her shotmaking, it’s her giving back that even further defines this young lady.

“I enjoy the difference I am making in the lifes of people” Those are wise words coming from a teen, but Zakiya is not your ordinary teenager. A standout-star golf player, Zakiya “Z” may often be a young female golfer amongst men and professional women(due to lack of elite girls and women amateur events) when she tees it up. But her talented golf skills – and her maturity – extend well beyond her years.

“Pretty incredible” is how Wolf Creek PGA Golf Professional Randy Grebeck and Andre Jones defines the club’s girl wonder. A regular at Wolf Creek, Zakiya has put together an impressive resume. At the very beginning, age 10 years old when she began playing, Zakiya received “The Player of The Year” award after she won every local tournament she entered. Continuing her run of success as a champion, she took her golf game nationally and won majors around the country and was crowned the ‘Championship Title’ on a National level.

Giving her fans a continuum follow-up of nothing but conquering the green, Z won every tournament and championship entered which led her to the Championship division on the popular Georgia PGA Tour. From the success at such a young age to the style that she brings to the world sport of Golf, Z continues to demonstrate mere perseverance, strength, power, and positive enlightenment.

Clamber Into A Crane And Jump The Capital’s Only Bungee Of The Year

It’s time to fire up the London crane again and prepare for another fantastic weekend of sun, scenery and adrenaline, as dates are announced for central London’s only bungee jumping event in 2010. It is fast upon us, taking place on the weekend beginning 24 September. A few spaces are left for this exclusive, unforgettable experience day organised by Extreme Element.

To whet your appetite, last year’s event had Tower Bridge buzzing with swarms of Extreme Element T-shirt wearers eagerly awaiting their turn to clamber into the crane and jump the capital city’s only bungee of the year. The weather was a perfect accomplice, with the sun shining beautifully all weekend and lighting up the stunning scenery and architecture, adding an unbeatable extra to the bungee jump experience. If you would like to be part of the event and watch the daring record attempt, you can check availability and book yourself on a single or a tandem jump. There are just under two weeks to go and only a few slots left, so hurry to get your piece of the action!

“We are very excited about the bungee jumping event. And this year, we are doubling our efforts by bringing a second crane to jump up to 600 people. This is just the first step for us – next year, we will be attempting to break the record for most people jumped in 24 hours, which is currently set at 502”, says Pipa Nogaro, MD at Extreme Element. The bungee takes place in Pottersfield Park, right next to Tower Bridge, and is open to the public from morning till late on 25 and 26 September this year. The bungee jump is part of the 2010 London Rat Race, the urban adventure challenge event that turns cities into high-adrenaline adventure playgrounds for teams to hike, bike, abseil, climb and kayak across the capital city. James Fields, operations manager of UK Bungee Club, is the fearless man challenged with breaking the current record of 19 jumps, set in South Africa in 2003. James said: “I spend my life jumping from cranes in my line of work with UK Bungee, so I am expecting to do around 23 to 25 in 60 minutes and break the record by at least 3 jumps”.

Extreme Element is the UK’s leading extreme sports specialist, offering more than 800 extreme sports courses and outdoor activity days across the UK and Spain. Whether you are after the perfect Christmas gift, an unforgettable experience with your mates, a corporate day out with a difference, or wanting to try a new sport, look no further.

If you are into fast cars rather than hurling yourself off an edge with an elastic band attached to your ankles, why not drive a Ferrari for a day instead with the Supercar Hire option? You can even experience the thrill of the Silverstone circuit. Extreme Element has so many driving experience days to choose from, including some superb track day racing gifts!

HotelTravel.com Formula 1 Event Guide Sets Pace for Italian Grand Prix

HotelTravel.com’s popular Formula 1 event guide moves to the Autodromo di Monza this week as the fastest show on four wheels gets ready to burn rubber for one of the season’s marquee events, the Italian Grand Prix.

It is one of the oldest events in Formula 1, and the Monza Race Circuit is one of the sport’s most historic venues, hosting many of F 1’s most epic battles.

HotelTravel.com Chief Information Officer, Olivier Dombey, predicted this year’s Italian Grand Prix could be one of the best races of 2010.

“In recent years, top speeds at the Italian Grand Prix have exceeded 370kph. The higher the speed, the greater the excitement, especially for the hometown Scuderia Ferrari fans. Expect them to be out in full force supporting the ‘Dancing Horse’ with a sea of bright red.”

According to Mr Dombey, another important motivation for attending the Italian Grand Prix is how easy it is to access the Monza Race Circuit from Milan, with the race venue just a stone’s throw away from one of Europe’s great cultural capitals.

It takes only 15 minutes by train, from Milan Central Railway station to reach the Monza Station (Stazione di Monza). There is also a free shuttle bus service from the Monza Train Station to the race circuit’s Vedano Gate.

Mr Dombey said: “We are very excited about the remainder of the 2010 Formula 1 season. In the course of just a few short months this year the HotelTravel.com Formula 1 event guides have developed an impressive fan following, and in the process have become an important primary resource in the world of F 1.
