RIO DE JANEIRO -- Soccer legend Pele is using a metal-framed walker to get around these days, which his agent compares to having a new piece of sporting equipment.He is calling this his new soccer shoes with wheels, his agent, Jose Fornos, told The Associated Press on Friday.A widely circulated newspaper photograph on Friday of the 76-year-old Pele using a walker was getting lots of attention in Brazil.Fornos said Pele has used the walker regularly -- or a cane -- since he had hip surgery almost a year ago. The surgery was to correct the displacement of part of a right hip prosthesis done in 2012.He also underwent back surgery in 2015 for what was described as a nerve root decompression.The three-time World Cup winner has also been hospitalized in the last several years for a urinary infection and prostate surgery.Fornos said Peles left knee is now the problem. The right knee is also reported to be problematic, and of course the right lleg and hip. Danilo Gallinari Jersey. Everybody is worried about this. But thats life, Fornos said.

Now hes on the bench.In an interview published Friday with the Sao Paulo newspaper O Estado De S.Paulo, Pele described his health as very good.Pele is widely regarded as the games greatest player and played on Brazil World Cup winners in 1958, 1962 and 1970.---Stephen Wade on Twitter: .

METAIRIE, La. -- Saints linebacker Dannell Ellerbe stood in front of his locker with a smile, showing an eagerness to talk about his health.Thats been subject in more ways than one since Ellerbe arrived in New Orleans last season. Hes been with the club for 22 regular-season games, playing in just six last year and none so far this season.Im feeling a lot better now, said Ellerbe, who has been sidelined since preseason with a quadriceps injury. I feel like Im close and Im happy.Asked if he felt well enough to play this weekend against Seattle, Ellerbe responded, Oh, yeah, but also emphasized that coaches, in consultation with trainers, would make the final call. He was officially listed as limited in practice on Wednesday.Ellerbe, who was part of Baltimores 2012 Super Bowl championship team before spending a pair of seasons with Miami, has been a top play-maker on the Saints defense since he joined the club -- when hes been able to play. In the few games he players last season, he was in on 39 tackles and credited with a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and quarterback hurry.His lack of availability on game days has made him a magnet for criticism on talk radio, mainly by frustrated fans whove questioned his toughness and drive.Certainly, the Saints defense, ranked 29th in the 32-team NFL, could use him -- and Ellerbe insists he understands that better than anyone.I need to be out there. I missed too much time already, Ellerbe said.As for those whove been critical of his motivation to return, he said, the first thing they dont understand is Im not out here trying to get hurt.Mentioning his two young boys, Ellerbe said he understands that a continued lack of availability on game day represents a threat to his livelihood and the standard of living he wants to provide for his family long-term. Christen Press Jersey. I need this just as bad as anybody else in the locker room, Ellerbe said.Ellerbe noted that hes tried numerous lifestyle changes in an effort to improve his health.I changed everything about my diet and now I did a lot of steps to stay from being in the training room, Ellerbe said.Ellerbe described his diet as very strict, noting that he eats only organic foods that fight inflammation, such as bison, sweet potato and halibut fried in peanut oil. He also hired a personal chef and dietitian in the past year.He said his primary goals in doing so were to improve his general health and recovery from the physical toll football takes on the body, as well as to reduce his reliance on anti-inflammatory and pain medicine.Now, I feel like Im close, Ellerbe said. I mean, we dont want to do nothing prematurely, but I feel like Im good.Game notes CB Delvin Breaux practiced for the first time -- albeit on a limited basis -- since fracturing his fibula in Week 1. ... OT Andrus Peat returned to practice on a limited basis, as did rookie running back and special teams regular Daniel Lasco. ...

RIO DE JANEIRO -- South Koreas women won the Olympic team archery title -- for the eighth time in a row. Jin Jong-oh, meanwhile, took gold in the mens 50-meter pistol in Rio de Janeiro -- for the third straight games.Some in the small Asian country have an easy, long-cherished explanation for the success: The nation is simply better than everyone else at doing the little things, the things that require laser-like concentration on a small, sometimes tedious and hard-to-master skill.But South Koreas domination in some of the smaller Olympic sports can more accurately be linked to a decades-long concentration of time, effort and money, often sponsored by the government, on training and nurturing athletes from a very young age in these specialized sports; this, in turn, has created intense competition among athletes who know that success will win them serious benefits.Still, the perception of an innate national facility for these sports lingers, even among the athletes.The woman seen as partly responsible for the archery boom in South Korea, Kim Jin-ho, won the countrys first archery gold in an international sporting event in 1978. She said she and her teammates always assumed that Koreans had a special level of sensitivity that allowed them to shoot arrows more accurately than their Western rivals.Like much about modern South Korea, its tumultuous modern history plays a part in its supremacy in these sports.Until democracy finally came in the late 1980s, South Korea was ruled by dictators who wanted to use sports as a way to promote a strong national identity and generate loyalty.So the authoritarian government pumped money into programs for athletes who had better chances of winning medals, often in these lesser known sports, rather than building up an overall sports infrastructure for the general public. Those selected athletes trained together at government-run facilities and were awarded benefits such as good pensions and, for the men, exemptions from mandatory military service if theey performed well in international competitions like the Olympics. Forrest Lamp Womens Jersey. As athletes in those sports succeeded internationally, the sports got more public attention. More popularity meant more steady civilian and business sponsorships. This meant more money, better training facilities and more young athletes taking up and sticking with the sports.That system is still largely in place. Hence the success.I doubt that South Koreans are exclusively gifted with a delicacy of skill that produces real changes in competition, said Roh Hee-tae, a physical education professor at South Koreas Dong-A University.South Korea began seriously investing in archery in the late 1970s, reacting to public excitement created when Kim won.The training and investment have grown tremendously in the years since.Kim, now 55 and a professor with Seouls Korea National Sport University, said South Korean archers today benefit from stronger financial and administrative support and a larger number of state-of-the-art training facilities. She said that South Korean coaches do a better job than their counterparts in other countries at finding the right training methods and motions for each archer based on their physical traits and shooting style.There is growing popular recognition that all athletes, regardless of where theyre from, must focus intensely on the little details to win. Still, the idea of Korean superiority persists.Some of my colleagues joked the other day that if you took a K-pop singer, in her first try she would be able to shoot arrows more accurately than most archers from other countries, said Hong In-he, a 37-year-old office worker in Seoul. South Koreans are better in areas that require accurate and delicate skills.---Kim reported from Seoul.

CHICAGO -- Chicago Cubs fans have waited 71 years to celebrate a return to the World Series.

Joe Mixon Jersey . -- Teemu Selanne scored the first goal of his 22nd NHL season, and the Anaheim Ducks extended the best start in franchise history with their fifth straight victory, 3-2 over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night.

DAmigo scored twice in regulation and added the shootout winner as the Toronto Marlies edged the San Antonio Rampage 5-4 in American Hockey League action. CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Pittsburgh manager Clint Hurdle figured the odds were against Mat Latos extending his impressive streak without a defeat. "Hes due to lose," Hurdle said pregame. With one good inning, the Pirates pulled it off. Pedro Alvarez singled home a pair of runs in the first inning, and the Pirates ended Latos streak of 21 regular-season starts without a loss, beating the Cincinnati Reds 4-0 on Tuesday night. Latos (6-1) hadnt lost a regular-season game since last August, setting a club-record streak of avoiding defeat. He couldnt overcome Pittsburghs three-run first inning set up by his uncharacteristic control problems. "I was aggravated with myself," Latos said. "I didnt throw too well in the bullpen and kind of took it into the first. I beat myself today. Its always hard when you put your team in a 3-0 hole." Latos had nine of Cincinnatis 17 strikeouts, which matched the clubs nine-inning record. The Reds also had 17 strikeouts on opening day, but that came in a 13-inning loss against the Los Angeles Angels. Charlie Morton (1-1) was better during his second start since returning from elbow surgery. He gave up three singles and threw 61 pitches in 5 1-3 innings, starting the Pirates toward their NL-leading 12th shutout. "Fortunately the few times they hit it really hard, they hit it at people," Morton said. Cincinnatis lineup managed four hits while getting shut out for the second time in their last four games. The Ohio River rivals have split the first two games of their four-game series, leaving the Reds a half-game ahead of the Pirates. Theyve been right behind the NL Central-leading Cardinals most of the season. There was an undercurrent from Mondays game, when Reds closer Aroldis Chapman threw an up-and-in fastball that levelled Neil Walker. The Pirates werent happy about the pitchs location. Mortons first pitch plunked Shin-Soo Choo on the leg. Morton also threw one inside to Joey Votto, who refused to budge from the box. Votto flied out, and that was the end of the drama. Hurdle encourages his staff to pitch inside, part of what he thinks pitchers need to do in order to control the strike zone. Pittsburgh has hit 39 batters, the most in the majors, but also leads in shutouts. "When two teams are focused on winning and neither one wants to blink and they just want to play hard and compete, you push the envelope in a lot of different places," Hurdle said. "Not just at the plate trying to get balls in on people, butt breaking up double plays and everything. Jordan Willis Womens Jersey. "So weve got to beat these guys and weve got to beat the Cardinals to get to where we want to go." Latos yelled from the dugout after Choo got hit. Latos hit Walker in the first inning in Pittsburgh last Saturday, prompting plate umpire Bob Davidson to warn both teams. "Its time somebody stepped up and did something about the team thats hit more guys in the league than anybody," Latos said. "I got fined for hitting Neil Walker, but youve got a team drilling guys over and over again. Its time for the league to step up and end it. That fired me up." Latos hadnt lost since Aug. 24, when the Cardinals beat the Reds 8-5. In the last 21 starts, hed gone 10-0 with a 2.80 ERA. The Reds were 17-4 during that streak. Also, Latos had never lost to the Pirates, going 4-0 in eight starts with a 2.29 ERA. Finally, they caught him in a slow start. He struggled with his control at the outset, needing 32 pitches to get through a 19-minute first inning. Starling Marte tripled and scored on Russell Martins infield single, giving Pittsburgh a run after only four pitches. Latos walked Garrett Jones and Walker, and Alvarez singled for two more runs. Latos settled down after the first, fanning eight of the next 11 batters. The problem was his pitch count, which was at 88 when he left for a pinch hitter with two runners aboard in the fifth inning. His streak was left in the hands of the bullpen and the offence. They couldnt bail him out. Marte singled home another run in the seventh. Morton had a lot to do with it, too. The right-hander dominated the Reds in 2011, giving up only one run in two complete games at Great American Ball Park. He had his right elbow rebuilt last June 14 and returned to the majors last Thursday, allowing four runs and seven hits in five innings of a 10-0 loss to San Francisco. He was much better this time, an encouraging sign for a Pirates rotation hit hard by injuries. Tony Watson, Mark Melancon and Jason Grilli finished it. NOTES: The Pirates agreed to terms on Tuesday with C Reese McGuire, their first-round pick and the 14th overall selection in this months draft. ... Pirates LHP Wandy Rodriguez, on the 15-day DL retroactive to June 6 with a tight left forearm, will throw all of his pitches in a bullpen session on Thursday. If he comes out of that without problem, he will make a rehab start in the minors on Sunday. ... Choo has been hit a career-high 19 times, most in the majors.

George North is convinced nice guy Dylan Hartley is the right man to lead England into their Six Nations campaign. Kendell Beckwith Womens Jersey . Hartley was handed the captaincy by new England head coach Eddie Jones, despite disciplinary problems which have seen the Northampton Saints hooker miss 54 weeks of rugby through various suspensions. But Saints team-mate and Wales international North says Hartley - whose first test as England skipper comes against Scotland on Saturday - has all the hallmarks of a natural leader, both on and off the field.  I think hes shown it before [that he is the right man for the job], North told Sky Sports. He has quality. Hes a great person and a great player.When I signed for Northampton, Dylan was one of the biggest characters. I didnt know how to take him or how to deal with him because he has this aura, this reputation. North says Hartley (pictured) is the right man to skipper England But now, being at Northampton for over two years, and understanding and getting to know Dylan, hes a completely different guy on the field to off the field.On the field, he is the guy you need to be carrying the ball hard, to put the team in the right areas and to lead from the front. But off the field he is a massive club man. He looks after one and all, whether its someone in the first year academy or in the offices. If they need help, he is the guy that always helps. Hes someone who my opinion of has completely changed, and it does so very quickly once you got to know the guy.

The Barrie Colts defenceman, who impressed many with his play for Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championship, is the top-ranked skater in the February rankings. He has 19 goals and 24 assists for 43 points in 45 games with the Colts this season.PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Suns appear close to hiring Jeff Hornacek as their head coach. A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Sunday that the Suns are in contract negotiations with Hornacek, although no deal has been finalized. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no public announcement had been made. The comments came after azcentralsports, which includes the Arizona Republic, reported Sunday that Hornacek reached agreement on a three-year contract. If all goes as anticipated, Hornacek would be introduced at a news conference Tuesday. Hornacek, assistant coach for the Utah Jazz, played six seasons for the Suns and was part of the trade that sent Charles Barkley to the Suns from Philadelphia. Hornacek went on to have his best pro seasons as a sharpshooting guard alongside John Stockton in the Utah backcourt. He replaces interim coach Lindsey Hunter, who took over the team when Alvin Gentry and the club agreed to part ways in mid-January. Hunter was strongly backed by general manager Lance Blanks, who was fired at the end of the season and replaced by ex-Boston Celtics assistant general manager Ryan McDonough. The survivor in the revamped cast is Lon Babby, who got a two-year contract extension as president of basketball operations. The 50-year-old Hornacek faces a daunting taask rebuilding a once-successful franchise that compiled the worst record in the Western Conference and second-worst in franchise history at 27-55 last season. Justin Evans Youth Jersey. . Only the franchises inaugural season was worse. The first chance to improve the roster will come when the Suns make the fifth pick in next months draft. They also have the 30th selection. Attempts will be made to improve through free agency but the team is saddled with contracts with some players who will be hard to move. Hornacek also interviewed for the Charlotte job but Phoenix had an inside track because of his past ties to the organization and because he still has a home in the area. Hornacek played 14 seasons in the NBA after being drafted late in the second by Phoenix. He eventually became part of a high-scoring backcourt with point guard Kevin Johnson, but he was sent away in the blockbuster Barkley deal. Hornacek spent less than two seasons with the 76ers before being traded to Utah, where he played alongside John Stockton for six-plus seasons, helping the team twice reach the NBA Finals. Hornacek averaged 14.5 points per game, topped by a career-best 20.1 points in 1992, his final season with Phoenix. He retired from the game in 2000 and after working with the Jazz in various roles became a full-time assistant coach in 2011.

Former India captain Rahul Dravid has said T20 is a complicated game that is not easy to decode. O. J. Howard Womens Jersey . He is of the opinion that tactics in the format, especially in terms of squad building in the IPL, have sharpened to a point that the depth of conversations taking place in the franchises in recent years was not happening anywhere else.Dravid was reflecting on the evolution of T20 cricket on ESPNcricinfo Talking Cricket, a new, in-depth, interview-based show that begins airing on SONY ESPN on Friday. His experience in the format spans all nine seasons of the IPL and ranges from being a player and captain for Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals to being a mentor for Royals and Delhi Daredevils.Some of the conversations that happen around IPL teams ... these conversations are not happening outside, Dravid said about the strategy involved in team building. They are not happening in television studios as I have been on television studios, I know it. The depth of conversation thats happening about the T20 game within a team and within that environment is not happening anywhere else, which is what makes the T20 game unique.I wouldnt say there is no knowledge outside but there is not as much knowledge, I feel, and there are people wholl make comments like, Why is he doing this? Why is he doing that? without actually understanding the dynamics of why it happens, what happens inside.From being heavily skewed in favour of big-ticket international players, Dravid says teams have started to do their due diligence on Indian domestic talent, as evidenced by the most recent auction where Pawan Negi, M Ashwin and Krunal Pandya attracted huge bids.There is a lot more research being done. There is a lot more knowledge about young Indian domestic talent than there was say three or four years ago, Dravid said. Suddenly, everyone has access to a lot of these young Indian domestic talents ... and every team comes really well prepared to the auction. Its very rare to find young Indian talents that are unheard of and you can pick out of nowhere for really cheap.Dravid believed that the increased knowledge was a result of the Indian uncapped players being included in the player auction in recent years, as opposed to franchises being able to sign them outside the auction in earlier seasons. In the past maybe teams didnt focus that much on young Indian domestic talent because they could either go and get them outside the auction and they could keep them and the whole auction was based around the international players, so there wasnt that much research in that sense needed. But I think today most teams recognize that you need domestic talent, and all the talent is in the auction.The nature of the auction was unpredictable and fluid, Dravid said, an environment in which a single competitor for a player could force a change in plans. A lot of times I have gone into auctions and said, Okay, well get this player cheap because not many know him. All it requires is one other team to value that player and have money to spend and, you know, you could end up losing him because you cant match up in the auction.A good example of this years auction would be someone like Carlos Brathwaite. Who would have thought that he would go for the price [INR 4.2 crore] he did, but obviously KKR [Kolkata Knight Riders], who have a team in the CPL [Trinbago Knight Riders], knew about him as much as the people who are looking at the Delhi team knew about him. I think auctions are quite dynamic and they sort of vary all the time. Everyone goes in with a strategy, everyone goes in with tactics, everyone goes in with certain ideas but you have got to think on your feet.While admitting that managing a team in which some players have substantially bigger price tags than others was challenging, Dravid said the the harder task was to ensure playing time for everyone in a large squad.Sometimes players also may not understand the dynamic of an auction, they dont understand why certain players have gone for so much money and why someone else has gone for such less, he said. Players are getting better at it. They are also beginning to understand that sometimes the dynamics of an auction are quite unique ...The challenges in the IPL are more around playing time and players in the playing XI. I think thats one of the big challenges because you have squads of 23, 24, 25 and only 11 can play. You have only four foreigners who can play at any given point of time so that sometimes has more of an effect on a team than money. I think after some time, at least to the coaches and to the mentors, I dont think people bring up the money issue so much, at least thats my experience.Watch ESPNcricinfo Talking Cricket with Rahul Dravid at 9.30 pm (IST) on July 8 (Friday) on SONYESPN O.

Round 7 was a see-sawing affair that saw two sets of back to back games. Michael Roberts Lions Jersey . The top of the table Sydney Kings and Perth Wildcats split their games while the New Zealand Breakers and Illawarra Hawks also split theirs.Home court advantage was a big factor this week as five of the six games fell to the home side; Adelaide were the only side not to deliver in front of their home crowd.Melbourne finally returned to the winners list with the return of star guard Chris Goulding, as well as welcoming in new import, Casper Ware.Unfortunately, the action wasnt exactly edge of your seat material as only one out of the six games was decided by single figures.So who and what stood out the most during round 7?Hot StartsJumping out of the blocks and getting a quick start against your opponent is crucial in games of basketball. It puts the opposition squarely behind the eight ball and can force them to throw away the game plan in the hopes of getting back into the game.Every side that won the opening quarter this round won the game.Brisbane stunned Adelaide, hitting more threes in the opening quarter than Adelaide did for the entire game. New Zealand flew out of the blocks and scored the opening 12 points against Illawarra in their opening game; a deficit that was to great too overcome.Welcome ReturnChris Goulding finally pulled on the United jersey again and it couldnt have come at a better time for his side. United had lost five straight since Goulding went down with his ankle injury against the Brisbane Bullets in round 3. Squaring off against the Cairns Taipans and hoping to get off the bottom of the ladder, Goulding was firing on all cylinders.Finishing the game with 30 points and an incredible 8/12 from beyond the arc, equalling the United record for made threes in a game. Hitting big shot after big shot and carrying his side over the line.Problems at HomeHome court is supposed to be your fortress, a place where you can impose your will on opposing teams. Unfortunately for Adelaide, their stadium has effectively become a home away from home for opposing teams.Adelaide have now lost their last four games and more importantly their last two games have been at home. To add some salt into the wounds, theyve lost both games by double digits.The first step in solving any problem is recognizing there is one, Adelaide need to recognize that they have a major problem on their hands.Johnny FlameWith 7:19 left on the game clock in the fourth quarter and the Kings down by 15 points, they were screaming for answers; thats when Brad Newley caught fire and morphed into Johnny Flame.In the space of 2 minutes and 44 seconds, Newley hit four three pointers and brought the Kings to within 4 points.Running around screens and hitting from all around the arc, Newley was simply unstoppable; ultimately finishing with 34 points and hitting 7/10 from deep. Sadly for the Kings, it wasnt enough as the Wildcats ran away with the contest.BlowoutsRound 7 saw the biggest average winning margin of any round so far this season, eclipsing the round four average of 12.6. With only the one game decided by single digits, the average margin of victory over the weekend ended up a whopping; 15.5 points.Illawarra helped this margin with their 31 point decimation of New Zealand in the final game of the round. So far this season there have been two games decided by over 30 points and Illawarra are responsible for both.There have been 42 games during the 2016/17 NBL season with the average margin of victory sitting at 10.47 points. Whilst the competition has been hotter than ever, the games are unfortunately reflecting a more one-sided affair. Teez Tabor Womens Jersey .ca!
