RIO DE JANEIRO -- When 19-year-old American Yijun Feng played Spaniard Zhiwen Juanito He on Saturday, Feng entered the table tennis match with a slight but unusual advantage, despite being outranked and lacking comparable experience. Packers T-shirts .Decades ago, He and Fengs 58-year-old coach, Massimo Constantini, were rivals.I used to get killed right away, Constantini said of his matches against the 54-year-old He, one of the oldest athletes in Rio de Janiero.All these years later, He still had it, handily beating Feng four games to two in the opening round of the Olympics.Experience matters in table tennis.Youthful strength, daring and stamina rule in many Olympic sports, but table tennis often rewards the deep experience that can only be won with hundreds of hours of practice and match-play. Older players thrive with a close, even devious attention to strategy, a determination to study and then exploit an opponents weaknesses and a gritty refusal to panic under extreme pressure.Run down the list of players at the Rio Olympics and youll see the proof. While there are 16 and 15-year-old phenoms in the lower levels, the top ranks are mostly in their late 20s and 30s; a fair number of qualifiers are in their 40s and even 50s.You need a lot of concentration, rather than a lot of physical strength in this sport, said 40-year-old Vladimir Samsonov, a former top-ranked player from Belarus. He is still in the top 10 and an outside medal contender in Rio.You definitely slow down after you hit 25, but experience counts for a lot in table tennis, Samsanov said.Older players can keep going because the game values skill and technique, according to Constantini, the U.S. coach and a former Olympian who played on the Italian national team until he was 37. He likens the game to a chess match.Table tennis is often as much mental as physical; older players are good at slowing the pace of the game to take away a younger opponents speed and power, forcing errors with spin and trickery, and encouraging lapses in concentration with frustrating defensive tactics.Older players have also benefited from a flurry of changes in recent years, including a bigger ball and games now played to 11 instead of 21 points. Theres also plenty of time to catch their breaths during and between games in the best-of-seven matches.Earlier Saturday, 53-year-old Ni Xia Lian from Luxemburg faced Brazils Caroline Kumahara, 21, and a massively partisan crowd which erupted in thunderous cheers for every Kumahara point. Ni kept calm and won a 4-3 thriller.When the pressure is high, at 10-10, and you can feel the stress, the mature player is much cooler. Its palpable, Constantini said. You can almost touch the feeling of calm because they have been there many, many times before.Samsonov, who is seeded seventh in Rio, no longer practices as many as eight hours a day, as he did in his 20s. He relies more on stretching and yoga, along with the knowledge that he has put in countless hours of practice over the years.And then theres Fengs opponent on Saturday, He.The left-handed Spaniard, who plays an old-school penhold style, is a master of the mental game, using his vast experience to deceive and fluster his opponents.Feng, ahead of the match, repeatedly called Hes style of play disgusting because its so unpredictable and so at odds with the attacking style of many young players today.In the end, Feng said the match came down to the Spaniards legendary serve, which, like that of many other older athletes, poses serious problems for younger players not used to such a wicked array of spin techniques.The Spaniard shrugged after the match when asked how he has been able to maintain his skills for so long.I take good care of myself, He said with a smile.

Those lessons were more than enough to overwhelm the Utah Jazz. Lou Williams scored 25 points and the Hawks continued their offensive upswing as they rolled to an easy 118-85 victory over the Jazz on Friday night, winning their third straight and for the fourth time in five games. Melbournes financial position continues to mirror their onfield resurgence, the AFL club posting a profit for the third year running.The Demons reported a profit of $720,218 for the year ending 31 October 2016, but conceded they received $230,000 in AFL equalisation funding on top of the base league distribution received by all clubs.The result is still a positive one for a club with bleak prospects on and off the field before the arrivals in 2013 of chief executive Peter Jackson and senior coach Paul Roos.Melbourne finished 17th in Roos first season in charge, but rose to 13th in 2015, 11th this season and are considered legitimate finals contenders in 2017.Roos handed the reins to new coach Simon Goodwin at the end of the season, with his much-improved team helping drive increased revenue from membership, gate takings and sponsorship.This is a pleasing result for the football club and our members were a key factor in the consolidation of ouur financial position, Jackson said on Wednesday. Morgan Burnett Jersey. .We saw membership grow to record levels, with 39,255 signing up for the 2016 season. This was complemented by our strong home game attendances, which saw over 330,000 people attend our home games - an increase of 72,000 compared to the previous season.The financial turnaround of the club has been in line with the strategic plan set by the executive and board since 2013.We are where we planned to be as a club, however, we must continue to drive high performance both on and off the field to ensure we continue to grow and strengthen the club over the coming years.Jackson said increasing football department expenditure and paying down the clubs debt remained key priorities.Melbourne will hold their annual general meeting on Thursday, December 15 at the MCG.

Nathan Cleverly lifted the WBA light heavyweight title to become a two-time world champion after Juergen Braehmer pulled out with an injury midway through their fight. Anthony Munoz Jersey .A close fight was set for an exciting second half and there were no signs that Braehmer had suffered the injury before the surprising finish at the Jahnsportforum in Neubrandenburg, Germany.Braehmer (48-3, 35 KOs), a two-time world champion, did not look in too much distress when he walked over to Cleverlys corner before the start of the seventh round to tell him he was retiring injured. A rematch now seems likely.?Im just very grateful to be world champion again, I loved being world champion before and I lost my belt and I needed that belt back in my life, said Cleverly.Im very grateful for Juergen Braehmer giving me shot at title, and if he wants a rematch we have a rematch clause. I broke him up the first six rounds and it was inevitable what was going to happen, but if he wants a rematch I will do it.Cleverly (30-3, 16 KOs), 29, had not fought for almost a year since a 12-round brutal brawl with Andrzej Fonfara. That unanimous points defeat to Fonfara was Cleverlys third loss in three years and he climbed through the ropes much in need of a career boost.The Welshman lost his WBO version of the world title when Sergey Kovalev stopped him in 2013 and a year later he stepped up to cruiserweight to lose a split points decision to British rival Tony Bellew.But Cleverly showed his career is very much still alive with a sharp start in what was an absorbing fight that was intriguingly poised until its sudden finish.Braehmer, 38 next week, will want a rematch after ruling as WBA champion since December 2013 with six defences, all at home in Germany.Braehmer, who defeated Cleverlys fellow Welshman Enzo Maccarinelli in 2013, had been due to face Cleverly in 2011 but pulled out with an injury that saw him stripped of the WBO belt that the Welshman would go on to hold for two years.Cleverly began hoping to make Braehmer look his age by setting a high tempo pace, but the champion was the more accurate with his punches.Southpaw Braehmer began getting through with backhands and was not unsettled by the pressure Cleverly was putting on him in the first four rounds.Many of Cleverlys punches were blocked but Braehmer was better at finding the target on the counter.Cleverly had a good fifth round as he maintained a relentless workrate and the fight was close before an unexpected end.Braehmer did not appear injured during the sixth round but before the start of the seventh round he walked over to Cleverlys corner to congratulate him.Braehmer held an ice pack to his right pack as the decision was announced that revives Cleverlys career.Im still maturing and maybe it was too early before, said Cleverly.This is the second phase of my career and it feels the right time. It was a matter of letting him tire himself out and break him up. I took the steam out of him and he folded a bit earlier than I expected. Vontaze Burfict Bengals Jersey . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way.

Rasul Douglas has become West Virginias best defensive player. Dede Westbrook is Oklahomas game-changing wide receiver.West Virginia cornerbacks coach Blue Adams isnt hinting at whether he plans to use Douglas to cloak Westbrook on Saturday night when No. 10 West Virginia meets the eighth-ranked Sooners.Oklahoma (8-2, 7-0 Big 12, No. 9 CFP) has so many offensive weapons that Adams has to figure out where to line up his unit, when to blitz quarterback Baker Mayfield and when to stay back in coverage.But defending Westbrook is a big priority.I cant sleep at night, Adams said. This Westbrook guy is a good player. Good at changing direction, good acceleration, good decel. Good route runner. Good speed. I think this will be a good test for us.They do a good job of moving him around so that you dont get a beat on him.Douglas has been a key component on a retooled defense for West Virginia (8-1, 5-1, No. 14 CFP). Like Westbrook, Douglas presents a problem for Oklahoma offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley, who is wary of the 6-foot-2 cornerbacks lengthy wingspan and tackling ability.You dont see many who can cover, who can tackle and also make plays on the ball, Riley said. Hes doing all three well right now.Both players are tied for second nationally in several categories. Westbrook is averaging 125.4 receiving yards per game and has 14 touchdown catches.Douglas has six interceptions, including three in the past two games. He swatted a pass out of the back of the end zone on the final play last week to preserve the Mountaineers 24-20 win at Texas .I trust my instincts a lot, Douglas said. Coach Blue always tells us, `dont fear thee skunk. Brandon LaFell Youth Jersey. If it looks like a skunk, and it smells like a skunk, its definitely a skunk. So he always says trust your eyes.Douglas also is the teams second-leading tackler.Thats kind of an understatement, being valuable, said West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen. Hes our best defensive football player right now. Hes continuously getting better. Hes making big plays that have an outcome on the game. Hes confident. Couldnt be happier or prouder of what Rasuls done. Happy we got him, and going to enjoy him for the rest of the year.Happy wasnt a way to describe Douglas path to West Virginia.He struggled personally as a standout player at Nassau Community College on Long Island. Being a member of a large family, he suddenly was on his own. He had little money and transportation issues to practice and classes. He didnt eat properly and lost weight.At West Virginia, he sat out 2015 spring practices with academic issues and wasnt cleared by the NCAA until two weeks before the season started. Far behind the learning curve, he had one interception and just eight tackles in 11 games.Things started clicking last offseason when Douglas dedicated himself to weight room work and further learning the system.Hes playing at a very high level right now, said West Virginia defensive coordinator Tony Gibson. Hes putting up numbers right now that we havent seen in a long time.---AP Sports Writer Cliff Brunt in Norman, Oklahoma, contributed to this report---More AP college football: Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' ' 
CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Indians, with their newly-configured bullpen, will host the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night in the second game of their four-game series. Derrick Morgan Titans Jersey .The Twins won game one of the series Monday night as they continued their inexplicable dominance of the Indians.Minnesota, which is in last place in the American League Central, is 6-4 versus first-place Cleveland, and 6-21 against all the other division opponents.Tuesday nights pitching matchup will feature Clevelands Carlos Carrasco (7-4, 2.45) vs. Minnesotas Kyle Gibson (3-6, 4.54).It will be the 100th start of Carrascos career, and his 11th against the Twins. He is 2-5 with a 4.02 ERA in those 11 starts. Gibson is 2/3 with a 5.80 ERA in eight career starts against Cleveland. That includes a 6-1 loss on July 17 at Target Field in which Gibson gave up four runs and 10 hits.The Indians acquired left-hander Andrew Miller from the New York Yankees in a trade on Sunday that significantly strengthened the back of the Indians bullpen. Miller has experience as both a closer and a setup man. The Indians have closer Cody Allen, who has 20 saves this year and 78 saves over the last three years.So who will be the Indians closer going forward? That will be determined by how each given game unfolds. Manager Terry Francona met with both relievers on Monday, and the decision was made to let the game dictate who pitches the eighth inning and who pitches the ninth.If the matchups in the eighth inning favor a left-handed pitcher, Miller will pitch the eighth and Allen the ninth. If the matchups in the eighth favor a right-handed pitcher, Allen will pitch that inning and Miller the ninth.Were going to try to leverage both of them the best we can, Francona said. Weve got a guy in Andrew Miller who is a rare breed. Hes comfortable in any role. And Cody is willing to do whatever is best to help us win.The other change for the Indians is at third base. On Monday, third baseman Juan Uribe was designated for assignment. Jose Ramirez, who has played mostly left field and some third base this year, will replace Uribe as the everyday third baseman.The Twins, who have won four of their last five games, are riding a rejuvenated offense in recent games. They have won four of their last five games, and in the four wins they scored 26 runs. In Mondays 12-5 win over Cleveland, the Twins exploded for 19 hits, including three doubles, two triples and five home runs.We had 19 hits and new could have had more. We hit a lot of balls hard, Twins manager Paul Molitor said.Much of the hard hitting came from Max Kepler, who had four hits, including three home runs, and Joe Mauer, who had four hits, including a double and a home run.Were hoping Joe gets into a run, Molitor said. Hes tweaking some things, trying to find his rhythm.Outfielder Byron Buxton did not play in Mondays game due to a sore right knee. An MRI exam done on the knee Monday was negative, and Buxton is listed as day-to-day. Avery Williamson Womens Jersey .

Australias mystified captain Steven Smith apologised to travelling supporters for having to witness an ugly 3-0 defeat, before saying the touring batsmen and spin bowlers had a lot of thinking to do about their cricket in Asian conditions ahead of next years trip to India. Reggie White Womens Jersey .The visiting batsmen fell in an unruly heap on the final day of the series after reaching a platform of 100 for 1, mirroring their first innings slide from 267 for 1 to 379 all out. Smith, who was out when trying to cut Rangana Herath off the stumps for the second time in the series, said recurring problems for the batsmen and the spinners Nathan Lyon and Jon Holland were the major problems to arise from a contest in which the pacemen Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood had done well.Its a hard one to grasp really, its been a very tough series again, that is our third straight whitewash loss in the subcontinent, Smith said. What we are doing isnt working. Batters arent adapting to the conditions, spin bowlers arent adapting to the conditions. I cant fault our quicks, I thought they did a great job, particularly Starc, but our batters and spinners are the ones who have to step up in these conditions and we havent been able to do that.We have been outplayed in every facet of the game, our plans havent worked as individuals or as a collective group, we havent been able to put Sri Lanka under as much pressure as we would have liked.Smith explained the selection of the allrounder Moises Henriques who was out twice cheaply and bowled only two overs in the defeat having come into the side in place of Usman Khawaja. He was picked pretty much as a batsman, he said. He can obviously bowl a little bit. Mitch Marsh is the allrounder in the team.In these conditions, it is the spinners job to get the majority of the wickets as the Sri Lankan spinners did, we just havent been able to do that. The selectors are there to do the job and I back whatever they go with. Were here to do a job and in this series and we havent been able to do that.Reflecting on where the series was won and lost, Smith harked back to the first innings of the first Test at Pallekele, when Australia bowled Sri Lanka out for 117 but then failed to capitalise in being rolled over for just 203 in response. Sri Lanka were then granted a lead through the brilliance of Kusal Mendis, and never again surrendered the initiative.That was a great opportunity for us, Smith said. I thought we did particularly well that first day to bowl them out for 117, and then a lead of 86 in that first innings wasnt good enough. We had another chance to go really big and put the Sri Lankan batters under a bit of pressure and we werent able to do that. Since then we havent really fought our way back. Its been difficult, weve batted second in every game weve played, and youre always behind the game knowing you have to bat last in these conditions. That first innings of the series did hurt us.Australia have committed enormous resources to trying to educate players in Asian conditions, whether sending Australia A and the National Performance Squad to India or installing a spin wicket at the National Cricket Centre. But Smith said that the surface was only a rough approximation of what his men had faced in Sri Lanka.Id love the wickets to be as they were back in the old days when the SCG broke up and reverse swung and spun late in the game, Adelaide the same, Smith said. Its harder with Adelaide now as a drop-in wicket to get that same surface up. Even when the wickets are turning back home theyre different to the subcontinent wickets.Theyve always got a little bit more bounce than the wickets over here. Its hard to replicate anything you get in the subcontinent back home. Weve got the spinning wicket at the NCC, Ive had a bat on that and it spins, but theres probably too much bounce for what you get in the subcontinent. So its hard to replicate what youre going to get but Id like as much as we can to get the Shield wickets back to the old days as such. Tommy McDonald Womens Jersey .

Pert has formerly spent time as an assistant coach with Cardiff City, Coventry City, and Bahrain mens national team.

Lou Williams scored 25 points and the Hawks continued their offensive upswing as they rolled to an easy 118-85 victory over the Jazz on Friday night, winning their third straight and for the fourth time in five games. West Indies Cricket Board Presidents XI 180 and 26 for 1 (Ashwin 1-14) trail Indians 364 (Rahul 64, Jadeja 56, Kohli 51, Cornwall 5-118) by 158 runsScorecardWhile KL Rahul struck his second consecutive half-century of the tour, captain Virat Kohli and allrounder Ravindra Jadeja also struck form with fifties on the second day of the warm-up match against West Indies Cricket Board Presidents XI in Basseterre. All of Indias batsmen except Shikhar Dhawan, who made a fifty in the first match, scored in double digits as the visitors made 364 to lead the hosts by 184 in the first innings. They looked set to score more when Rahul and Kohli were batting but offspinner Rahkeem Cornwalls five-for restricted them.Resuming the second day at 93 for 3, the Indians were led by Rahul who marched from his overnight 30 to score 64 before retiring out. Rahul and Kohli put on a partnership of 88 for the fourth wicket as Kohli scored 51. But the captain was dismissed soon after Rahul retired, lbw to Cornwall, who had also dismissed Cheteshwar Pujara the night before.That was the purpose of coming here early to get used to the wickets and conditions and Im really happy with the way Ive batted in the last two innings, Rahul said after the days play. The wickets here have been hard, the weather is hot and humid so its not very easy to go out there and get runs but [Ill] try to use these two innings and the time before the Tests to prepare well for the Test series. So Im really happy with the way Im prepared.Out here it was a little slow and the outfields heavy and thhe ball is getting really soft after 20-30 overs, so getting runs is kind of hard. Mike Quick Womens Jersey. Ajinkya Rahane then led the visitors past 250 as Stuart Binny was caught behind for 16 off Cornwall. Rahane too fell to the same bowler for 32. The Indians were 254 for 7 and Wridhhiman Sahas run-out made it 298 for 8. The innings was revived by Jadeja, who came in at No. 9, as he scored 56 off 61 with eight fours. He first put on 44 with Saha and then 47 with R Ashwin, who scored a patient 26 off 61. Jadeja was eventually caught and bowled by Cornwall, who finished with 5 for 118.The pitch is offering a little bit so you have to be consistent with your lines, Cornwall said. No nerves whatsoever [against a strong batting line-up], I back my skills to do what I have to do and at the end of the day were playing a game of cricket, so they have to bat and I have to put the balls in the right areas.It is very special, they are top quality batsmen, you have to do your best against them. This will take me a long way. Once you perform against the best, it will always urge you to perform better. This game taught me a lot - I think patience and the way some of these guys carry themselves. It kept me to go and improve on my game.The hosts batted for eight overs before stumps and lost opener Leon Johnson, caught and bowled by Ashwin, for 17 in the last over of the day. They were 26 for 1 at the end of the day and trailed by 158 runs.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Jason Pierre-Paul Jersey . -- Coach Derek Mason is embracing what a win Saturday night would mean both to his Vanderbilt Commodores and the program hes been building for three seasons.No clich?s about trying to go 1-0, though his Commodores proved Tuesday theyve learned that talking point well from their coach. No, when talking Tuesday about the game in both teams regular season finales, Mason referenced the quote from the late John F. Kennedy about why settle for second when first is available.Were going to make sure for us we go get everything there to get, Mason said. Were not going to leave any meat on the bone. Its time for us to go eat. Its time for us to grow up. Its time for us to put down the little boy toys and pick up the big boy toys, and lets play football and lets try to find ourselves in the midst of doing something great.Masons Commodores have a high enough APR, Academic Progress Report, that they just might head to a bowl with the five wins they already have this season with more bowl slots than six-win teams . Beat in-state rival Tennessee, and academics will take a backseat to what the Commodores do on the football field.This Tennessee-Vanderbilt rivalry has been lopsided for decades with the Volunteers dominating. In the past 10 years, Tennessee is 8-2. Each time the Commodores beat the Vols -- 41-18 in 2012 and 14-10 in 2013 -- they went bowling and finished 9-4 under coach James Franklin.When Franklin went to Penn State, Vanderbilt hired Mason away from Stanford where he was defensive coordinator as a first-time head coach. Vanderbilt still is looking for both its first bowl berth and first victory over Tennessee. In his third season, the Commodores (5-6, 2-5 Southeastern Conference) are having their best season yet under Mason.Beating Mississippi 38-17 last weekend marked the most points Vanderbilt has scored against an SEC opponent under Mason. That also got the Commodores their fifth win, and their SEC-best APR could have their bowl eligibility secured before kicking off against Tennessee.Mason said winning not only means a sixth win for the Commodores but taking the next step in being relevant in the SEC.And to me right now thats where were moving, Mason said. Thats where were headed, but this opportunity would really cement exactly what weve been able to do in terms of building culture.Tennessee coach Butch Jones, who has his Vols at 8-3 and 4-3 in his fourth season, noted four of Vanderbilts losses this season came in one-possession games.When you look at Vanderbilt, Derek Mason has done a great job of really continuing to build that football program, Jones said.Vanderbilts last bowl came in Franklins final game with the Commodores who beat Houston 41-24 in the BBVA Compass Bowl on Jan. 4, 2014. But Masons Commodores werent biting when asked about possibly being bowl-bound or knowing a win was necessary before kickoff. Linebacker Zach Cunningham said their focus is on Saturday night.This game is the only thing thats important to us right now, Cunningham said.---More AP college football: and Harry Carson Womens Jersey .

The mixed zone is not a place to make friends. .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Dylan Armstrong agonized over the bronze medal lost in Beijing -- not only because he missed it by so little, but because he knew in his heart it was rightfully his. The Canadian thrower is one step closer to getting that shot put bronze medal from the 2008 Beijing Games after Belarusian Andrei Mikhnevich received a lifetime ban for a doping violation. "I worked hard for it, and I want it back," Armstrong told The Canadian Press in a phone interview. The 32-year-old from Kamloops, B.C., missed a medal by less than a centimetre -- about the width of a dime -- at the 2008 Games. And while nothing will replace that moment lost, Armstrong said "I just have to turn this whole thing around and turn it into a positive thing. Yes, its unfortunate it happened that way. But its still a medal coming my way so thats the most important thing. "Its my countrys medal too, we deserve it." There have been times a frustrated Armstrong has wanted to scream out to the world about the drug cheats in his sport, he admitted -- that night at Beijings Birds Nest Stadium notwithstanding. "Especially when you know its going on, and theres nothing you can do," the thrower said from Szcsecin, Poland, where hell compete in a meet Saturday. "A lot of the general public doesnt really know whats going on in the whole game. "Doping, its in sport. Theres obviously going to be those people willing to cheat for financial success, and financial rewards in those countries are quite big, you can pretty well be taken care of for life." Armstrong first heard bronze was within his grasp in March when Mikhnevich was suspended after renewed tests from the 2005 world championships in Helsinki. It was the Belarusians second doping offence, which comes with an automatic lifetime ban, effectively wiping out all his results past that time. Still, Armstrong was thrilled when he was in the Amsterdam airport Thursday morning and read on Twitter that the Belarusian Athletics Federation had suspended the drug cheat. "The wheels have started turning," said Armstrong, whose bronze would be Canadas first-ever Olympic medal in shot put. "Im extremely happy, its been a little bit of a roller-coaster since March, just waiting and seeing whats going to develop. But Im pretty delighted to see the IAAF (the world governing body for track and field) has really stepped up their testing and taken greater responsibility with this in trying to catch athletes. And not even the athletes, but federations that are involved in some of this. "Im just happy the IAAF and WADA is finally really starting to nail down these guys." Armstrong is also in position for a 2010 world indoor championship bronze, since Mikhnevicch took silver at that event while Armstrong finished fourth. Odell Beckham Jr Jersey. . Hell likely get the world indoor medal first as it only needs rubber stamping from the IAAF. The Olympic bronze needs to go through both the IAAF and the International Olympic Committee. Armstrong, who was ranked No. 1 in the world in 2011, said hes proud of the fact he can be a positive role model for other athletes -- proof that competing clean can eventually pay off. "Youre going to get caught, and were really seeing that in the world today," he said. "Some of these athletes who have taken that route, its all coming back to haunt them now. It would not be a fun experience. It doesnt pay to cheat. Just train hard and be dedicated and really want it, and big things can come." Charmaine Crooks, a five-time Olympian in track and field and member of the IOCs athletes commission, said the Belarusians lifetime suspension renews the message about the need to remain strong against doping in sport. "This is a clear message that the system is working," Crooks said. "This is a great day not only for Dylan Armstrong, but also for all of Canada to be able to celebrate in this upgrade in this medal." Athletics Canada chairman Gordon Orlikow added: "We feel this is a vindication of everything were supposed to be doing together." Athletics Canada officials are unclear how soon Armstrong might receive his medal. It took nearly two-and-a-half years before Canadian cross-country skier Beckie Scott received her 2002 Olympic gold medal following the disqualification for doping of the gold and silver medallists. American shot putter Adam Nelson however received the 2004 Olympic gold four months after the original Athens champion Yuriy Bilonog of Ukraine was caught in a re-test. Armstrong, meanwhile, said hes finally at full health after he was plagued by an elbow injury last season, finishing a disappointing fifth at last summers London Olympics.

AUBURN, Ala. T.J. Yeldon Womens Jersey . -- Jared Harper buried a 3-pointer on Auburns first shot of the night, and the Tigers never stopped hitting them.With Danjel Purifoy scoring 27 points, a short-handed Auburn team tied the Southeastern Conference record with 21 3-pointers in a 117-72 victory Thursday night over Coastal Carolina.The Tigers (7-2) raced to a 56-27 halftime lead and continued that 3-point barrage throughout the second half. They wound up 21 of 42 from beyond the arc and matched the fifth-most points in school history.I dont even know where those shots came from but everybody was making 3s out of nowhere, said Purifoy, who was 5 of 10 from beyond the arc and has two 27-point games in a row. Walk-ons coming off the bench and making 3s. It was fun to watch.Kentucky also made 21 3s in 1990 and Arkansas matched that in 1997. Nine Auburn players made at least one 3-pointer a day after starters Bryce Brown and Horace Spencer were suspended following their arrest on misdemeanor marijuana possession charges.Walk-on Will Macoy got into the act with eight points and a pair of 3s in just five minutes late in the game.Purifoy also scored 27 points in Auburns 72-71 loss to Boston College on Monday.Harper was 5 of 6 from 3-point range and scored 16 points with seven assists. Mustapha Heron added 17 points and seven rebounds for the Tigers. Ronnie Johnson added 11 points and T.J. Dunans 10.I think from the standpoint of what its supposed to look like, what it can look like, that was about as good as its gotten since Ive been here, Auburn coach Bruce Pearl said. I didnt see it coming given all the adversity that weve had this week.But adversity tends to reveal character. And perhaps in some ways our character got revealed tonight.Elijah Wilson led Coastal Carolina (5-7) with 22 points and Jaylan Robertson had 12.Auburn closed the first half on a 31-5 tear.Without question, Auburn played lights out, Coastal Carolina coach Cliff Ellis said. Youve got to give them all the credit.It was 25-22 and then all of a sudden it just went haywire and shots started falling. It just caught on with everybody. I think everybody started feeling the magic.Missing two starters didnt slow the Tigers down. LaRon Smith and TJ Lang took their spots.I feel like they felt like they let the team down, Auburns Anfernee McLemore said. They were more upset that they couldnt fill their role on the team.McLemore played a bigger role with Spencer out and produced nine points and eight rebounds.BIG PICTURECoastal Carolina: Fell to 5-14 against teams from Power 5 conferences since the 2010-11 season. Got 15 points in the first half from Wilson, and 12 from the rest of the team.Auburn: Improved to 5-0 at Auburn Arena this season. Previous school record was 19 3-pointers. Outrebounded a team that came in second nationally in total rebounds, 48-40.ELLIS RETURN: Coastal Carolinas Ellis led the Auburn program from 1994-2004. He led the Chanticleers to a win in 2014 and took the Tigers down to the wire in an 81-78 loss last season.UP NEXTAuburn: Hosts Mercer Sunday before more high-profile games away from home against Oklahoma and UConn.Coastal Carolina: Hosts Wofford on Monday night for their final home game of 2016.

With the short-handed Warriors needing help from someone -- anyone -- to stop a three-game skid, ONeal returned from right knee and groin injuries that had sidelined him for four games and put up season highs with 18 points and eight rebounds.

Halladay signed a one-day contract with the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday that allowed the veteran right-hander to retire as a member of team with which he broke into the majors and spent the bulk of his distinguished 16-year career. WASHINGTON -- Maurice Josephs first head coaching job comes with an interim tag and after an awkward summer for George Washingtons basketball program.The 31-year-old understands his best attributes and is leaning on them as the Colonials Nov. 11 season opener against Maryland-Eastern Shore approaches.In the grand scheme of things, the major focus has been to bring energy and enthusiasm on a daily basis, which we always have done, and to focus on getting better on a daily basis, which we always have done, Joseph said Tuesday at the teams media day.Former coach Mike Lonergan, who led George Washington to its first NIT title in March and went 97-70 in five seasons, was fired Sept. 17 after the university investigated him and concluded he had engaged in conduct inconsistent with the universitys values.Joseph was named interim coach 10 days later.Joseph, who played at Michigan State as well as under Lonergan at Vermont, spent the last five years on the Colonials staff. That continuity has helped George Washington make the unusually timed transition, as has Josephs own positivity.Thats his biggest strength, forward Tyler Cavanaugh said. Hes young. He has positive energy and hes just had a rhythm and an upbeat sense to him throughout our practices. If you come in, youll see him running through drills wwith us. Julius Thomas Jersey. The way hes been able to work with the other assistants has been phenomenal. Everyones still engaged.Thats important after a wild summer. A Washington Post report in July included accusations of player mistreatment by Lonergan, though he remained as head coach during an August tour of Japan. Then came his ouster less than two months before the start of the season.A swirl is definitely a good way to put it, Cavanaugh said. It was crazy. There was just a lot up in the air and going from one thing to the next. But I think playing games and preparing really helps. The Japan trip, we got to focus on those practices and build toward the season. The four games there was a step. When we came back, it was out of our control, so we just had to move forward.Thats the attitude Joseph is taking with the Colonials, who were picked to finish eighth in the 14-team Atlantic 10s preseason poll.Theres really no time to dwell on emotions or what happened in the past, Joseph said. Like Tyler said, some of these teams in our league that were picked ahead of us or below us dont really care about the coaching change. When the ball goes up, theyre going to try to beat us.

Running backs Jalen Richard and Spencer Ware and tight end Jack Doyle highlighted an opening Sunday for fantasy football that had far less chaos and surprise than previous opening weekends. LaDainian Tomlinson Youth Jersey . While theres less to learn long-term from 2016s opening frame, theres still plenty for fantasy owners to consider:---INJURIESChargers wide receiver Keenan Allen injured a knee in the second quarter Sunday against the Chiefs and was placed on season-ending injured reserve Monday.Its a crushing blow for both fantasy owners (Allen was a consensus second-round pick who already had six catches for 63 yards when he went down) and anyone with a sense of humanity (Allen has been sidelined before in his career by a litany of injuries). Fantasy owners may want to consider Allens presumed replacement on the waiver wire, Dontrelle Inman. In just eight career starts, Inman has five games of 75 or more receiving yards.Browns quarterback Robert Griffin III also will miss at least eight games after breaking a bone in his left shoulder. Josh McCown becomes the Cleveland starter while Griffin is out.Other injuries to keep an eye on this week: Russell Wilson, Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu as they deal with ankle injuries.---FUN WITH SNAP COUNTSTwo quick things to look at when the dust settles on a football week: targets for wide receivers and running backs, and Nathan Jahnkes Twitter account (PFF-NateJahnke ). The director of analytics at Pro Football Focus, Jahnkes feed is brilliant on Sundays, sharing snap counts for nearly every team, revealing to fantasy owners which players were in the game for the most plays.Interpreting some nuggets from Jahnke this week:- Patriots receiver Chris Hogan had the second-most snaps of all the teams receivers (56), suggesting his usage is very real.- Seahawks running back Christine Michael saw more snaps (52) than Thomas Rawls (22), which might continue for a couple weeks as Rawls works his way back from injury.- Despite two touchdowns for Chargers running back Melvin Gordon, he was badly out-snapped (50-23) by Danny Woodhead, meaning the big fantasy day may be tougher to replicate if his play is limited.- Tevin Coleman had the bigger numbers, but Devonta Freeman still out-snapped him, 36-32. Still, the pendulum can swing either way for Atlanta.- Victor Cruz played 49 snaps to Odell Beckhams 55 and Sterling Shepards 53, which likely means hell continue to be a big part of the Giants offense.---FLY EAGLES FLYThe Eagles may be the team offering the most long-term fantasy impact given standouts the first week.Jordan Matthews (14 targets, seven receptions, 114 yards, and a touchdown) and Nelson Agholor (5/4/57/1) were two of the more overlooked receivers this draft season. But with the Chip Kelly regime gone and a talented rookie quarterback in place in Carson Wentz, the offense looked more traditional, and Matthews and Agholor fit right in.Fantasy players expected good things from Ryan Mathews (22 attempts for 77 yards and a touchdown) and Zach Ertz (six catches for 58 yards) and we got our five targets to Darren Sproles. But Matthews and Agholor were a welcome surprise.---WILL FULLER GETS HIS OWN SECTIONQuickie version: hes worth adding if you can.The Texans rookie receiver had five receptions on 11 targets for 107 yards and a touchdown. And the numbers would have looked even better had he not dropped a long pass at the end of the first half.Fuller had a sparkling preseason and earned raves from his coaches. But as exciting as the debut was for Fuller, would-be fantasy owners should note two small caveats: the Chicago secondary hasnt been great in years, and Fuller is a speedy wideout who may only catch half of his targets, including one or two receptions of the 40-60 yard variety.Hes better than the boom-or-bust label on a week-to-week basis -- and could compare favorably with players like Martavis Bryant or Mike Wallace (non-Vikings version). Fuller is worth a fantasy add (and will likely be one of the most-added players across all fantasy leagues), but he may have a few three-point games as the season unfolds.---IS JOE FLACCO A TOP 12 QUARTERBACK?Yes.---This column was provided to The Associated Press by the Fantasy Sports Network, .

Gareth Southgate has been tipped to choose Sturridge to lead Englands attack in their World Cup qualifier against the Scots at Wembley on Friday, despite the Liverpool forwards failure to score a Premier League goal this season,Manchester Uniteds Rooney has been confirmed to start as captain, but Pearce - who was part of the England side that beat Scotland at Euro 96 - is concerned by the prospect of Rooney playing behind Sturridge.  Gareth Southgate confirmed Rooney will captain England in Friday nights World Cup qualifier with Scotland at Wembley When asked if starting Sturridge would be dangerous, Pearce told Sky Sports News HQ: I dont think its a risk at all.   England interim manager Southgate opted to play Sturridge in the goalless draw with Slovenia in their last World Cup qualifier in October, with Rooney placed on the bench. Jurgen Klopp has selected Roberto Firmino to lead the line for Liverpool in recent weeks and kept Sturridge among the substitutes, while Rooney has regained his place in Jose Mourinhos starting line-up for Manchester United.  Sturridge hit the woodwork twice as Liverpool beat Watford 6-1 last weekend However, Pearce is suitably convinced by Sturridges 20-minute appearance in Liverpools 6-1 win over Watford in the Premier League last weekend to back the forward for England, but believes doubts still surround Rooney.Sturridge came off the bench, I think he had five efforts at goal and hit the woodwork twice, said Pearce. One thing you do know is he is going to have efforts at goal. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. The big problem for me will come back to the Rooney situation. If Rooney is going to play just behind the striker, and Scotland are going to sit deep, I think Wayne just wants to play deep and get on the ball.If he does, Sturridge will be very isolated. Rooney cannot afford to keep dropping deep beyond their midfield. Hes got to stay beyond their midfield and look for space, and get on the ball.Thats where the question mark around Rooney keeps coming up, time and time again. Its because he wants to play deeper where theres no traffic of players, get on the ball and start spraying it around.

More rain was in the forecast.The PGA said players would stay in the same pairings and go off in the same order for the final round, starting as early as 8:40 a.m. That at least would allow the chance to finish Sunday, though it also meant the champion could finish hours before the last group finished.Kevin Kisner had a 5-under 65 and was done with 54 holes at 5-under 205.

LOS ANGELES -- UCLA?coach?Jim Mora and Ohio State?coach Urban Meyer defended their assistants, who were alleged to have had knowledge of sexual abuse perpetrated by Jerry Sandusky at Penn State?in the 1980s and 90s in documents released this week. Christian Kirksey Youth Jersey .Tom Bradley, Moras defensive coordinator, and Greg Schiano, Meyers defensive coordinator, were both Penn State assistants under Joe Paterno during Sanduskys tenure. Both denied the allegations from a 2015 deposition by ex-Penn State assistant Mike McQueary that became public Tuesday. McQueary told Paterno he saw Sandusky rape a boy in a shower in 2001 and was a key witness in the Sandusky trial.I know this about Tom: He is a man of integrity, Mora told at Pac-12 media days Thursday. Hes been vetted by a number of different people as well as UCLA -- very, very thoroughly. It took us a long time to hire him because our university takes these things very seriously. So we went through the process of vetting his background and his stories and he made a statement and he stands by that statement and I stand by him. I feel comfortable with that.Bradley left Penn State in 2012 and worked a single season at West Virginia before being hired at UCLA before the 2015 season.Meyer told the Toledo Blade that he stands by Schiano, the former Rutgers?and Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach who was hired by Ohio State this offseason.Theres no issue as far as I am concerned. I first heard about it several months ago and we had a long talk, Meyer told the Blade. Ive known Greg for 20-some years. I have as much respect for Greg Schiano as I do any person -- not just any coach, any person. We had the chat and he told me everything that happened. He stands by his statement and we stand by his statement.According to the documents, McQueary said that Bradley was not shocked when told of the shower incident. Bradley said he knew of some things about Sandusky dating to the 1980s, McQueary testified.Bradleys representative Brett Senior issued a statement Tuesday afternoon.At no time did Tom Bradley ever witness any inappropriate behavior, it read. Nor did he have any knowledge of alleged incidents in the 80s and 90s. He has consistently testified as such. Any assertions to the contrary are false. When he became aware of the 2001 incident, it had already been reported to the University administration years earlier.McQueary also said that in the 90s, Schiano saw Sandusky in the shower with a boy.Schiano told ESPN on Tuesday: I never saw any abuse, nor had reason to suspect any abuse, during my time at Penn State.Mora said Thursday that hes not only standing up for his assistant coach.My first thought is always towards the victims, Mora said. It always has been as a father. Thats where my mind goes first. This has been drawn out a long time, and every time that a story resurfaces, Im sure that it creates more pain for the victims.
