RIO DE JANEIRO -- It was 2012 all over again for the Americans on Monday in the Rio Games. Cheap Authentic Ultra Boost .Just as in London, they followed a great performance in the preliminaries of the team competition with a terrible start to the finals and finished fifth.In a lot of ways, these guys performed better than I feel we did in London, coach Mark Wiliams said. We fought through everything and theres no giving up. Gymnastics is hard and there are a lot of good teams out there on the mens side.Four years ago things went wrong when they started on the pommel horse and two of them fell. On Monday it was the floor exercise that put the team in a big hole early with both Alex Naddour and Sam Mikulak stepping out of bounds during their routines.Its obviously tough whenever you start from behind, but thats kind of the Team USA motto to never give up, never quit, fight until the end, Chris Brooks said. So we just tried to rally together and get the ball rolling.They were able to do that, turning in solid performances on the rings, vault and parallel bars to put them within striking distance of a medal. Only the uneven bars were left and Danell Leyva knew he had to be aggressive to give the team a chance.But instead of sticking his routine, he missed a connection, leaving the Americans in fifth place once more.We started it off a little rough but we were picking it up toward the end, Leyva said. I was the one who messed it up at the end. I just slipped on the bar. I really tried grabbing on and holding on as much as I could but my grip was off, like it was not on the bar, and thats why it slipped off.It was a day that illustrated the rapidly increasing gap between the U.S. mens and womens teams. While the women are overwhelming favorites to win their second straight team gold, the men have slipped to the middle of the pack after winning team medals in both 2004 and 2008. Williams watched the American women dominate the field in qualifying on Sunday night and hoped it would give his group a boost.Looking at the results obviously theyre doing the right things and they looked fantastic last night, Williams said. That was one of the best gymnastics meets Ive ever watched. Weve got to come out and be on fire as well.The gymnasts werent really interested in comparing what happened in London to Mondays performance. But Leyva summed up the feelings of most of the guys rather succinctly.It feels equally bad, he said.Despite the disappointing finish the men were happy with their effort and looking forward to better results in the individual events.Even though we didnt get the placement that we wanted it was fun. We had fun down there, Brooks said. We were supporting each other. We were competing with everything we had. Its gymnastics -- sometimes it doesnt go your way, sometimes you need a little bit of luck. But I had a great time.Naddour completely agreed with his teammate and had a smile on his face as he described the day.Fifth in the world, he said. Its still pretty good. Adidas Ultra Boost Clearance . -- On the field, it was business as usual for Jameis Winston and No. Adidas Ultra Boost China Wholesale . If ever they start actually putting pictures beside words in the dictionary, the Blue Jays left-handers mug will appear beside “Consistency. . -- Anaheim Ducks captain and leading scorer Ryan Getzlaf has been scratched from Sunday nights game against the Vancouver Canucks because of an upper-body injury.England begin another summer of Test cricket at Headingley next week and the squad for the first Test against Sri Lanka has been announced with Jake Ball the standout inclusion. The Nottinghamshire paceman becomes Englands fourth seam option, joining James Anderson, Stuart Broad and Steven Finn in the 12-man squad. But who is he and how did he force his way in Trevor Bayliss thoughts? Heres what you need to know…Age: 25Born: Mansfield, NottinghamshireTwitter: @JakeBall30Loves: Golf & Everton Why is he in the squad? Ball impressed in Notts draw with Yorkshire in early May Ball has been in fantastic form for Nottinghamshire in the early part of the season, taking 23 wickets at 19.04 in five first-class games this season. Most notable perhaps was his performance against Yorkshire at Trent Bridge, live on Sky Sports. The 25-year-old bowled with real pace and took seven wickets in the match, including the prize scalps of Joe Root, Gary Ballance, Adam Lyth and Jonny Bairstow.Is he just a flash in the pan?In a word: no. Ball is still in the early stages of his career and after a broken foot disrupted his 2014 it was only last year that he really got a run in the Notts four-day side, having impressed in white-ball cricket since his debut in 2009. He certainly took his chance, taking 39 County Championship wickets with a first class average of 29.51 for the season. Since then he looks to have added a yard or two of pace to his bowling over the winter and it is undoubtedly paying off, he is already well on his way to improving on his wicket haul from 2015.What do they say about him? England batsman Joe Root is sure Jake Ball can mmake an impact in Test cricket. Adidas Ultra Boost Clearance Sale. Nottinghamshire team-mate Stuart Broad: Jake has developed so quickly in the last 18 months. Hes tall, hes got good pace and hes a guy that takes big wickets - he gets top-order batsmen out. He was the best bowler on show [against Yorkshire] and its a good sign when players perform well on TV against good players.Yorkshire coach Jason Gillespie: He bowled well against us in Abu Dhabi in pre-season and then again in our recent Championship match. He can move the ball off the surface and swing it through the air, while he bowls a good length and invites the batsmen to come forward. If he gets an opportunity, I think he will do well.Sky Sports Nasser Hussain: He has been very impressive. On a pretty decent Trent Bridge pitch, he bowled really well and got Root out twice. He looked sharp, fit and in-form and when you speak to guys around County Championship Division One, they say he has been doing well for some time.What does he say?Jake Ball, to Nottinghamshires official website: I havent met (coach) Trevor Bayliss yet, so Im looking forward to seeing what hes about - and obviously meeting up with a few of the players I havent played against or met. Its going to be a really exciting time, I really cant wait to get going.First class bowling recordMatches: 26Wickets: 84Average: 25.13Best innings figures: 6-49Best match figures: 9-67 Ball took 39 County Championship wickets in 2015 Is he new to the England set up?Again, no. While this may be Balls first call-up to the Test side, he is no stranger to representing England. The seamer was an Under-19 international, playing a starring role in two U19 Tests in 2010 against Sri Lanka, and was rewarded for his fine county form in 2015 with a call to the England Development Programme fast bowling camp and a place in the England Lions squad for their tour of Pakistan. There he impressed once more both with the red and the white ball.Any other business?Ball does have another England connection in the form of his uncle, and former Nottinghamshire and England wicketkeeper, Bruce French, who also had a spell as Englands wicketkeeping coach where he worked closely with Matt Prior, in particular. You can see whether Ball makes his Test debut as England take on Sri Lanka from 10am next Thursday, May 19, live on Sky Sports 2 HD.
