Jaroslav Kulhavy trained so hard for the Olympics that he didnt have time to finish work on a new house. NFL Jerseys China .It took a broken left hand to finally slow him down on the mountain bike, though its not the kind of break he needed as he works to get back atop the medal stand in Rio. There is little time to rest with some of cyclings best-known names looking to unseat the Czech champion.In March, Kulhavy had surgery on the hand he broke during a race in Cyprus. After a five-week recovery, he was back on the World Cup circuit in May.The main thing is that I didn(asterisk)t fall anywhere, because the terrain was very slippery, Kulhavy said on his website after finishing fifth at La Bresse. I have the points and my performance looks good. I was riding in a good feeling especially at the end.Some notes and other things to watch in mountain bike during the Rio Games:FAMILIAR FOESThere are two familiar names atop the world rankings: Nino Schurter of Switzerland and Julien Absalon of France. Schurter won silver in 2012 and bronze in 2008. Absalon, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, had his hopes dashed for another first-place finish in London by a flat tire.SAGAN WHAT?World road race champion Peter Sagan will try to win gold at Rio on a mountain bike. The Slovak Cycling Association said Sagan agreed to give up his road spot for the mountain biking berth. Sagan tested the difficult road course in Rio in January and decided it was too hilly for him to contend. Hes a former junior world champion in mountain biking.TOP WOMENAnnika Langvad of Denmark was the top-ranked female rider internationally going into the world championships in late June, with three World Cup series wins over the last year. Langvad was followed closely by Switzerlands Jolanda Neff, the World Cup winner in 2014 and 2015. Julie Bresset from France, who won gold in 2012, is an alternate this year.LEA IN THE LEADThe top U.S. contender is Lea Davison, ranked 15th in the world. She finished 11th in London and since the last Olympics, Davison had surgery to repair torn cartilage in her right hip in January 2014, about four years after needing a similar procedure on her left hip.She felt good this spring, though ran into some bad luck after gashing her elbow during a World Cup race in May, stunting momentum for a top finish. Davison finished the race still bleeding, in 18th place. Davison, who had five top-10 finishes in World Cup races in the last year, is heading to Rio on a high after finishing second at worlds in early July.The womens mountain bike World Cup circuit is ridiculously competitive and deep right now, Davison said.The other womens spot on Team USA went to Chloe Woodruff, ranked 28th in the world. She won nationals in 2015.This is a dream come true, Woodruff said on Facebook after learning on June 23 that she made her first Olympics.FORWARD LOOKINGThe lone mens spot on the U.S. team is going to 23-year-old Howard Grotts. He was chosen over Stephen Ettinger, who is four years older but higher ranked in the world. With the United States a longshot to medal, Rio will serve as a learning experience for Grotts.ON THE COURSEThe 3-plus mile-long, man-made Rio course has received good reviews from riders. Marc Gullickson, director of the USA Cycling Mountain Bike program, said the course was well-manicured, with challenging, though not extremely dangerous, features. The course, riders have said, makes for a television-friendly event. Heat could be an issue, though, with no trees to provide shade.

Mohammad Hafeez has been ruled out for the remainder of Pakistans tour of England, after suffering a calf injury ahead of the second ODI against England at Lords. The fast bowler, Mohammad Irfan, has been called up in his place.After complaining about pain in his left calf, Hafeez was diagnosed with a minor strain which means he will play no part in the remaining three matches of the ODI series, as well as the one-off T20I at Old Trafford which concludes the tour on September 7.Although Hafeez will be staying in England to undergo intensive rehabilitation, Pakistans management decided that there was no point in retaining him with the team.The likelihood was that he was going to be dropped for the second ODI anyway, having endured a barren run of form since his arrival in England.He managed 102 runs in six innings of the Test series before being left out for the series decider at The Oval, and made 11 from 15 balls in Pakistans defeat in the first ODI at the Ageas Bowl on Wednesday.Irfan, the tall fast bowler who missed out on original selection for the squad, has been drafted into the squad following approval from Pakistans selection committee.Irfan, 34, was originally overlooked in favour of a recall for Umar Gul, having failed to impress the newly appointed chief selector, Inzamam-ul-Haq with 12 wickets in nine ODIs in the previous 12 months.However, he has been in action for Islamabad in the ongoing National T20 Cup in Rawalpindi, and will fly out to join the team ahead of the third ODI. Teppo Numminen Jersey. Meanwhile, Azhar Ali defended his decision to bat first at Lords. Pakistan slipped to 2 for 3 in the opening moments of the match, with the England bowlers enjoying the 10.30am start and a green surface.The start wasnt good at all, he admitted. It was really difficult to come back from losing three early wickets. To some extent we made a recovery, but it was not enough. The early loss of wickets cost us the game.But the first half of the game saw the ball come on the bat much better than the second half. If you start at 10.30, the openers have to take responsibility for getting you through the first 10 overs. But unfortunately the top order didnt really do anything. They were out to good deliveries, but as professional players you should be able to cope with that and find a way.But after five or six overs, there were some good shots players. The ball was coming on very well. In the second half of the game, it really wasnt coming on well and reverse swing was effective.While Azhar agreed with Mickey Arthurs pre-match assessment that Pakistan are behind the rest of the world in ODI cricket - both tactically and in ranking terms - he took some encouragement from the fact his side were still able to reach 251 despite such a grim start.We are behind, he said. But if the top-order had done better, we could easily have scored 300 today. ' ' '

Cheap College Basketball Jerseys .A trip back home turned out to be just what they didnt need.The Diamondbacks blew a late three-run lead and were swept at home by the Phillies for the first time in 10 years after a 9-8 loss in 10 innings on Wednesday.We felt really good coming home from the road trip, the way we were playing, Diamondbacks starter Archie Bradley said.

After the first and second innings, I was really locked in, pitching inside and keeping them guessing.Bradley was sharp in his previous two starts, allowing a run in 11 innings.The right-hander gave up more than that in the first inning against the Phillies, when Bourjos hit a towering two-run homer to left.Eflin hit a leadoff double against Bradley in the fifth inning for his first major league hit and later scored his first run on Asches double that pulled Philadelphia to 4-3.Bradley allowed three runs and eight hits and struck out four in six innings.Minus the first two batters of the game, he said.

SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Chargers and Arizona Cardinals broke up the training camp monotony by practicing at Qualcomm Stadium on Tuesday night.The teams will also have a joint workout on Wednesday at Chargers Park leading up to Fridays preseason game.Its like playing two little mini games, Chargers coach Mike McCoy said.However the Cardinals were missing coach Bruce Arians, who was hospitalized before the practice with stomach pains.Cardinals spokesman Mark Dalton said that, after arriving for the teams joint practice, Arians told his medical staff he was not feeling well and had stomach pain.Dalton said later that Arians had undergone tests and would remain hospitalized overnight.

The former Ole Miss star sprained an ankle early in camp and wasnt cleared for Tuesdays practice.Both teams worked without incidents.I had the `Hard Knocks image in my head where everyone fights so we were on alert, Humphries said. But everybody was professional and worked hard.The Chargers Philip Rivers agreed.I thought we got done what we needed to, he said. We got to go against another team and get some different looks. It allows us to see some things in a practice setting.How many times are we going to get down in the red zone in the preseason with us all in there? So it allows you to see four or five plays in a row against a defense we havent been practicing against all the time. It feels game-like.---Online:AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: ' ' ' 
Just under two months ago, following their spirited fourth-quarter rally to victory over the Indianapolis Colts, the Texans owned a two-game lead in the AFC South, including a pair of victories over their most threatening divisional rivals. Cheap John Gibson Jersey .As a testament to how quickly wind changes directions in the NFL, the Colts (6-6) will host Houston (6-6) on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium with a share of first place in the division on the line. With the Tennessee Titans (6-6) also tied atop the division, the Texans are in the precarious position of having to not only fend off the Colts and Titans for a division title that once seemed theirs to lose, but they must also reverse the nosedive that put Indianapolis and Tennessee in position to swipe the AFC South.While the Colts have won three of four, Houston has dropped three consecutive games. The Texans offensive woes have been longstanding yet their recent late-game defensive collapses are equally troubling. Injuries have undermined them defensively, with cornerback Johnathan Joseph (ribs), linebacker John Simon (chest) and end Jadeveon Clowney (wrist/elbow) missing varying lengths of time recently.But the bigger picture is the Texans have gagged up what previously appeared to be a comfortable lead in a widely panned division. While the Texans rarely performed like a juggernaut, they won just enough over the first half of the season to seem viable as a postseason lock. Now that their record matches their uneven efforts, the Texans appear to be in serious trouble as the stretch run approaches.I dont know, Texans coach Bill OBrien said after being asked whats different between his team now as opposed to in mid-October. I think every week is different. Im not sure whats different about our team right now. I think weve got to get back on the winning side of things. Whats different is weve lost three in a row and weve got to get back on the winning side of things. Our guys realize that.For a team seeking even the smallest measure of good news, a return to relative good health qualifies. The remaining challenge is maintaining a positive perspective.A three-game losing streak can get a lot of guys down, especially guys that are young that have never lost like that coming from college, Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins said. Just to show them, its a long NFL season. Ive seen a lot of teams with losing records make it to the playoffs and go deep. You just have to encourage those guys.The Colts find themselves in a different role after having built momentum with their recent success. Indianapolis pulled out of its tailspin after blowing a 14-point lead to the Texans in the first meeting, overcoming a spate of injuries to find stability on both sides of the ball and set the stage to take the division lead on their home turf.We cant sit here -- you look back at that game and where we were record-wise, it would be real easy to go woe is me and fold your tent, but thats not our character, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. Thats not our foundation. Thats not in our DNA because of our players and because of our staff, our coaches.

I didnt agree with what happened about being taken off but I respect Flanno and I respect the decision he had to make.At the time, I was like, whats going on?Im just thankful my boys supported me.

Clippards deal Monday means all eight Nationals players who filed for arbitration wound up settling before a hearing. WASHINGTON -- The drought is finally over for Toronto FC. An own goal by D.C. United defender Daniel Woolard in the 41st minute was the difference Saturday as Toronto fought back from an early 1-0 deficit to pick up a 2-1 victory and snap an 11-game winless streak in MLS play. "I think it was a very professional performance in the second half," said Toronto head coach Ryan Nelsen, who tasted victory in the league for the first time since March 9. "It takes a lot of character to come back, away from home as well, against a team that is a bit wounded and a bit desperate, very similar to us." Robert Earnshaw had the other goal for Toronto (2-7-5), which snapped an 0-6-5 run with its best offensive performance of the season on the road after scoring just three times in six previous games away from BMO Field. Former Toronto FC star Dwayne De Rosario scored from the penalty spot for last-place United (1-11-3). D.C. opened the scoring when midfielder Nick DeLeon was fouled by Toronto defender Gale Agbossoumonde just inside the 18-yard box and De Rosario converted the ensuing penalty in the 19th minute. Two goals from set pieces edged the visitors out in front before halftime. Earnshaw somehow won a header just outside the six-yard box from a long Steven Caldwell free kick, glancing the equalizer past goalkeeper Bill Hamid in the 30th minute. The Welsh forward joked about a high jump background in his youth as the key to the play before breaking down how he got the better of D.C. defender Brandon McDonald, who is five inches taller. "Its just the timing really," Earnshaw said. Cheap Soccer Jerseys Free Shipping. "The ball was good, because (Caldwell) over hit it, and it gave me a chance to get up behind (the defender)." A set piece worked again Toronto in the 41st minute when Luis Silvas curling delivery into a mass of on-rushing bodies was glanced home by Woolard into his own goal. A charged up D.C. team came out of the gates and nearly equalized two minutes into the second half. DeLeon pounced on a poor clearance from Caldwell at the top of his box, but Bendik made a fine save on the fiercely struck shot. The goalkeeper was tested again by De Rosario in the 58th minute when DeLeons cross found the Canadian internationals outstretched foot, only to see Bendik deflect the effort wide. Nelsen praised the efforts of his 24-year-old keeper. "Whenever the ball went in (the box) it only looked like it was only one guy who was going to get it," said Nelsen, who began his professional career with United in 2001. "Joes been doing that since the start, hes such a dominant personality." While absorbing pressure in the second half, scoring chances were scarce at the other end for Toronto. The best chance fell to Silva, who pounced on a poor back pass from D.C. defender Taylor Kemp but couldnt find the target. The missed opportunity meant another nervy finish for a defence that has conceded a goal in the last ten minutes of a game eight times this season. But the back line held firm to give Nelsen a win in his first visit to RFK Stadium as a head coach. ' ' ' 
NEW YORK -- The biggest error during the Yankees-Red Sox game nearly occurred in the left-field stands when a man asking his girlfriend to marry him dropped the ring as he proposed on the humongous video board in center field. Cheap Fergie Jenkins Jersey .I literally started crying because I thought it was lost, said 29-year-old Andrew Fox of New Castle, Pennsylvania. It happened so fast.His girlfriend, Heather Terwilliger of Fredonia, New York, had no idea he was going to propose. She didnt even know they were going to attend a game at Yankee Stadium Tuesday, let alone be shown on the video board with her boyfriend on one knee. With the whole stadium watching, he went to one knee, opened the Kay Jewelers box, and there was nothing.I didnt know how to react, Terwilliger said as the crowd gasped.Fans in their left-field section searched for the ring, but no one could find it. Fox feared it had dropped down from their second-level seats to the first.It took about five minutes, though it felt like 15 to Terwilliger, for the search to end happily. Finally, when all hope seemed lost, they looked in the cuffs of Terwilligers bell-bottom jeans -- and there it was.As every minute passed by, I was like, Oh my God, if we didnt find it by now, Fox said.Yankees public address announcer Paul Olden told the entire crowd, The ring has been found!

PHOENIX -- With another decisive sequence, the Minnesota Lynx have put themselves in position to repeat as WNBA champions. Air Max Australia .Maya Moore scored 20 points and Natasha Howard added 17 to help the Lynx beat the Phoenix Mercury 82-67 on Sunday, completing a three-game sweep of the semifinal series.Defensively we feel like we got better from the first game to the third game but it was still a hard game, said Seimone Augustus, who had 12 points and three steals for Minnesota. Today just felt like a day when we were playing great basketball on both ends of the floor.The Lynx dominated the Mercury for three games, averaging 97 points a game and a double-digit victory each time. Phoenix hadnt played a home game in the playoffs until Sunday and has been on the road a majority of the last month.These players have a lot of mileage on their tires, so to speak, said Phoenix coach Sandy Brondello. But they certainly competed. Minnesota has too much chemistry I would probably say. Just different people stepping up, they play very well together.Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve acknowledged that the Lynx may have caught a bit of a break with a road-weary Mercury squad, even at home.We have a team that is fairly deep, we can throw some different things at them, she said. So hopefully we got to that point where we get some separation.The top-seeded Lynx, who also eliminated the Mercury in the penultimate round a year ago, await the winner of Los Angeles-Chicago in their return trip to the WNBA finals.Diana Taurasi had 12 points, after averaging 26.5 in her first four playoff games this year, as the eighth-seeded Mercury again had trouble with turnovers (15) and shot just 41 percent from the field. Taurasi was held to just one point in the second half, missing her three attempts from the field, all from 3-point range.Howard had six points during a key third quarter run that saw the Lynx pull away as they did against Phoenix in the second quarter of Game 1 and the third quarter of Game 2. Minnesota started the second half on an 8-1 run and built a 55-43 advantage after six minutes and held on.(Howard) is such an active screener, she creates offense for the team, Reeve said. She creates flow, any time shes on the floor. Shes such a timely screener. Shes gets out of her screens very quickly.Reeve added, She had some plays in that third quarter that really gave us that separation. Just being persistent.Lindsay Whalen added 11 points, all in the first half, for the Lynx, who have appeared in the WNBA Finals in five of the last six years, winning the title three times.DeWanna Bonner added 12 points and six rebounds for the Mercury.I think we definitely lost to a better team, said Phoenixs Penny Taylor. We didnt play obviously our best, but credit to them and what they were able to do. They have played well all year.Taylor, who has won three WNBA titles with Phoenix and two silver medals for Australian, finished with four points but ended her career third in franchise history in points and games, and second in steals, assists and 3-pointers. She announced her retirement after 13 seasons during the Rio Olympics break.TIP-INS:Minnesota is now 10-2 against the Mercury in the postseason. The Lynx swept the Mercury in the conference finals, which was a best-of-3 series last season, eliminating Phoenix in the same arena on a late free throw by Moore. Phoenix won the 2014 conference series against Minnesota 2-1 on its way to the third WNBA title. Coming off a WNBA playoff-record 63 free throws, the teams combined for 28 foul shots on Sunday.HOME AWAY FROM HOME, PART 2: While the two teams played at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, as opposed to the Lynx usual home at the Target Center, the Mercury would have faced a similar situation for Game 4 of the semifinals. With a Sia concert scheduled for Tuesday, the teams would have played at Grand Canyon University, where former Phoenix Suns star Dan Majerle coaches basketball.ELIMINATION TIME: Taurasi is now 13-4 in elimination games in her WNBA career. The Lynx have beaten Phoenix in the playoffs four times in the last six years. Minnesota has won nine straight against Phoenix, including 6-0 this season. Air Max Australia Cheap .

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Floridas Jim McElwain made Southeastern Conference history by becoming the first coach to reach the leagues championship game in his first two seasons.Hes 13-3 in SEC play, has swept rival Georgia and pushed the Gators to start making strides to improve their football facilities.It is hardly enough, at least not in Gainesville.As the 15th-ranked Gators (8-3) head to Atlanta to face top-ranked Alabama (12-0) for the second straight year, McElwain is getting more criticism than acclaim. Florida looked overmatched in a 31-13 loss at Florida State last Saturday, failing to score an offensive touchdown for the second time in as many years in the series. And McElwain, hired to fix Floridas floundering offense, has come up well short and offered nothing more than a glimpse of anything resembling Steve Spurriers Fun `n Gun that dominated the league throughout most of the 1990s.The Gators currently rank 114th in the nation in total offense, down two spots from 2015 while averaging a meager 352.7 yards a game. And they easily could drop after facing the Tides top-ranked defense Saturday.I dont look at it as a mismatch at all, McElwain said Monday. I look at it as a great opportunity, and you know thats part of the chess match. ... I know this: Were playing in this game and were going to give ourselves every opportunity to be successful.Florida was somewhat competitive in last years title game.The Gators returned a punt for a touchdown early and trailed 12-7 at halftime before Alabama pulled away and won 29-15 . Florida finished with 180 yards, the fewest of McElwains tenure. Quarterback Treon Harris got the brunt of the blame for that stinker as well as Floridas late-season slide.There havent been nearly as many excuses this year.McElwain started two transfer quarterbacks (Luke Del Rio and Austin Appleby) over two freshmen he recruited (Feleipe Franks and Kyle Trask). It seemed justifiable before the season, but looked highly questionable once it became clear Del Rio and Appleby have flaws.Thee Gators have thrown for fewer than 150 yards in four of their last seven games, and havent topped 230 yards passing in more than two months. Cheap Air Max Australia. think weve done it throughout the season in glimpses and spurts, Appleby said. The key for us is going to be to the consistency. We cant shoot ourselves in the foot. We cant have negative plays. Weve got to stay on schedule and keep working. ... We know we can do it.Now its just about doing it time and time again, and thats that mental endurance thing. Thats playing for each other, trusting in the plan, not making stuff up, and just executing the plan.Consistency hasnt been Floridas offensive forte under McElwain. Consider this: The Gators have been held below 275 yards of offense in 10 of their last 17 games. And its not like theyre playing some of the nations top defense every week. In fact, eight of Floridas 11 opponents have defenses that rank 63rd or worse.So it would surprise no one to see McElwain make wholesale offensive changes after the bowl game, including firing coordinator Doug Nussmeier, line coach Mike Summers and maybe others.In the meantime, the Gators can celebrate another SEC East title, with no mention that its widely considered the worst division in the Power Five conferences. The East is 11-33 against the West over the last three years.Florida has merely managed to be better than the rest in a watered-down division, good enough to put McElwain in the record books but not enough to silence detractors who question whether a guy who once said he could win with his dog at quarterback has made Florida any better offensively after 25 games.Its obviously one of those things that you have to constantly evaluate and get better at, McElwain said. I was also brought in here to get to Atlanta. How many years have I been here? OK.---More AP college football: and ' ' ' 
HOUSTON -- Rockets starting guard?Patrick Beverley?said he practiced Friday and expects to return this coming week?from left knee surgery. Texans Jerseys Online .Beverley didnt say which game would be his season debut in, but he proclaimed hes completely healthy. The Rockets first game this coming week is Monday against the Philadelphia 76ers.?I feel very good, excited, cant wait to play, Beverley said Saturday. I cant wait to play with my teammates. I missed them a lot. I missed being on the road and team camaraderie a lot. I missed playing basketball and missed competing.Beverley said he wont be limited in his return and has done some physical contact during his workouts and his lone practice. In his absence, the Rockets started Eric Gordon and Corey Brewer at guard alongside James Harden. In the last two games, coach Mike DAntoni placed Brewer in the starting lineup and moved Gordon to the bench. DAntonis reasoning was that Gordon gives the second unit more scoring power when hes paired with Tyler Ennis in the backcourt.Beverley has better chemistry with Harden, who has moved into the point guard role full time.Ive been working out with three trainers here when the guys have been on the road, and I practiced (Friday) and competed at a high level, Beverley said. I did one-on-one and a lot of contact stuff. Im ready. Im excited to get back out there and compete. Texans Jerseys China .

PHILADELPHIA -- Charlie Blackmon put on a power display against the Phillies unlike any player before. Still, the Rockies couldnt get a win in the three-game series.Blackmon homered twice to give him five for the series, but Jimmy Paredes singled, doubled, homered and drove in three runs and the Philadelphia Phillies held on to complete a three-game sweep with a 7-6 victory Sunday.Blackmon became the first Rockies player ever to hit five homers in a three-game series and the first player to do it in a three-game series at Citizens Bank Park, which opened in 2004.It was fun to watch, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. When a guy gets in a zone like that, its pretty amazing.He is batting .548 with eight homers and 14 RBI in his last nine games.If you play baseball long enough, eventually youre going to get hot, Blackmon said. Im grateful Im seeing the ball, but Im not going to get too excited.Nick Hundley added three hits and a pair of RBI for the Rockies, who have lost three in a row and seven of eight. Hundleys two-out single in the ninth pulled the Rockies within a run, but Jeanmar Gomez got Gerardo Parra to pop out to center for the final out with the tying run on third base for his 31st save in 34 chances.Severino Gonzalez (1-2) gave up one run on two hits in two innings in relief of starter Adam Morgan, who was injured in the fourth inning.Rockies starter Tyler Chatwood (10-8) didnt record an out against any of the four batters he faced in the frame, leaving after giving up six runs -- four earned -- on six hits with four strikeouts and five walks in four-plus innings. The loss was the first on the road this season for Chatwood, who entered 6-0 with a 1.30 ERA away from Coors Field.More concerning for Chatwood was his back.Chatwood said he experienced upper back tightness similar to that which landed him on the disabled list from June 19-July 5. He wasnt able to throw his fastball away to right-handers or inside to lefties, or finish on his breaking ball. Hes unsure whether hell make his next start, and it will depend on results of furtherr tests Monday. Authentic Martinas Rankin Jersey. .It was kind of tight throughout, Chatwood said.

There also was a botched tag and bobbled ball that resulted in a run for each team.Nolan Arenado had a pair of errors and Chatwood and Daniel Descalso had one each for Colorado. Odubel Herrera dropped a ball in center field for Philadelphias lone error.Certainly not clicking, but guys never quit, Weiss said. We still were fighting to the last out.SUPER SLIDEThe Phillies also had a miscue in the third inning that wasnt scored an error when Hernandez failed to apply the tag on Blackmon at second base after a throw from left field beat Blackmon with time to spare. Second-base umpire Gary Cederstrom called Blackmon out, but replays showed Hernandez never touched Blackmon.Blackmon avoided the tag with a nifty slide in which he kicked his legs away from Hernandez.Asked how to describe it, he said, Like a ninja spiderman.STREAK SNAPPEDCarlos Gonzalez struck out swinging as a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning, ending his major league-leading 19-game hitting streak.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: Gonzalez has been battling a left ankle sprain.
