RIO DE JANEIRO -- Australia is back on track in Olympic field hockey.Coming off consecutive Olympic losses for the first time since 1988, the Australians scored two late goals and hung on to beat Britain 2-1 Wednesday.Moments after Ashley Jacksons penalty corner score for Britain with three minutes to go, Australia defender Matthew Swann swatted away a ground shot in the goalmouth.Australia moved to third in Pool A, behind unbeaten leaders Belgium and Spain, who meet on Thursday.New Zealand leapfrogged Britain into the fourth and last quarterfinal spot after routing Brazil 9-0. New Zealand leads Britain on goal difference, and their final, tough, pool matches on Friday will decide their fate: The Black Sticks play Belgium, and the British face Spain.In womens play, the Netherlands defeated China 1-0, breaking through in the 59th minute through Kitty van Male.China didnt make a single shot on goal in the match, and kept the Dutch quiet until the third quarter, when the latter adapted its attack to the Chinese wall. A goal looked inevitable until time was almost up, when China goalkeeper Dongxiao Li missed a save and Van Male bounced the ball in.It was a tough match for us, Netherlands captain Maartje Paumen said. We controlled the game. We are always confident. We looked at each other in the eyes and said `The goal is coming, we will score.The Netherlands stayed on top of Pool A, two points ahead of unbeaten Germany.The Germans peppered South Korea, which didnt fold until the last quarter.

Three minutes later, Lisa Alterburg scored against a full complement for 2-0.New Zealand stayed in touch with the leaders by defeating Spain 2-1.

Its just our time, Bam said.The British led 2-0 at halftime with a pair of goals from Helen Richardson-Walsh, and Sophie Bray added a third. Then Florencia Habif scored twice almost within a minute to cut the margin to one, but even though the British were briefly down to nine players on yellow cards, the Argentines couldnt capitalize.Australia rose from last to third in the pool after its first win in three matches, overwhelming India 6-1. Jodie Kenny scored the Hockeyroos last two goals to reach 101 in her career.Back in the mens tournament, the British were unlucky with two penalty corners -- one shot ricocheting off their own mans stick, and a second deflecting away off an Australians foot.The first goal, 11 minutes from the end, shifted momentum. Simon Orchard fed into the circle, and Aran Zalewski, back from a one-game suspension, passed back inside to Daniel Beale to score. Not long after, a shot dribbled out from under the British goalkeeper, Glenn Turner dived to straighten its path toward goal and just before it would have rolled in, Jacob Whetton whipped it in.The British rallied too late.Nick Wilson scored four times for New Zealand, which finally posted its first win in four matches at Brazils expense.Brazil has conceded 37 goals in four matches, scoring only once, and faces a revived Australia in its last pool match on Friday.

HOUSTON -- The Houston Astros have struggled to beat the Texas Rangers all season. Cheap Tampa Bay Rays Jerseys .Ian Desmond hit a tiebreaking single in the 11th inning and the Rangers beat Houston 5-3 on Sunday for their 11th win in 13 games against the Astros this year.Texas took two of three in the weekend series and extended its AL West lead to 7 1/2 games over Houston.Weve had a hell of a time matching up with these guys, Houston manager A.J. Hinch said. Were always going to counter-punch. Were not just going to sit here and take it.Houston went 2-5 on its homestand and has lost eight of its last 10 games overall.Anytime I leave this podium after a loss I hate it, Hinch said. I dont care what teams on the other side, I dont care what division theyre in, what league theyre in and how the loss happened.Clearly games against the Rangers matter when theyre ahead of us, they matter when theyre behind us, theyre in our division. So Im not naive, I know that those games are going to be magnified. You get into August and were in a playoff race, these games get a little heightened awareness.After Shin-Soo Choo led off the 11th with a double, Desmond followed with a single against Chris Devenski (0-4). Rougned Odor later hit an RBI double.Matt Bush (5-2) pitched the 10th, then struck out George Springer with runners on the corners in the 11th.Theres plenty of time, theres still a lot of baseball left, Houston closer Ken Giles said. We competed throughout the entire series, it wasnt a blowout. They didnt blow us out, we didnt blow them out. It was just one of those weve got to go out there and compete. They did the little things right, we just need to maximize on their mistakes next time because they maximized on ours.Texas starter Yu Darvish pitched seven shutout innings, striking out eight and giving up five hits.Alex Bregman hit an RBI double, and Jose Altuve followed with an RBI single off Jeremy Jeffress to cut the Rangers lead to 3-2 in the eighth.Tony Kemp tied it in the ninth with a single off Sam Dyson that scored pinch-runner Carlos Gomez, who slid around Jonathan Lucroys tag.Lucroy put the Rangers ahead with an RBI double in the fifth. Jurickson Profar hit a two-run double off Giles to extend the lead to 3-0 in the eighth.Kemp had three hits after coming in as a pinch hitter in the eighth.Joe Musgrove allowed one run on five hits in seven innings, striking out six in his first major league start. The right-hander threw 4 1/3 scoreless innings with eight strikeouts in relief in his debut Tuesday.Im more comfortable just because Im in what Im used to in the starting role, Musgrove said. Anytime you go out and face a team like that, especially with a guy like (Yu) Darvish on the mound you cant really afford to give up many runs because hes a top tier pitcher.TRAINERS ROOMRangers: OF Carlos Beltran was out of the lineup after leaving Saturdays game with a left quad contusion.

After another eventful round of Aviva Premiership, Guinness PRO12 and Top 14 action, based on last weekends form, heres our composite British & Irish Lions team of the week. Nike Air Max Kopen Belgie .BACKS15. Tiernan OHalloranThe Ireland full-back had a solid all-round game as Connacht defeated Edinburgh 28-15. Such performances can only help OHalloran in seeking to secure more Ireland caps, after making his debut in the summer series against South Africa.14. Darren SweetnamSweetnam had a quality all-round game for Munster as they demolished visitors Zebre 49-5. The winger scored after just three minutes, and would have had a second try later on but he was taken out in the act of scoring.?13. Elliot DalyDaly keeps his spot in our side after yet another excellent performance, and a try, as Wasps thrashed Harlequins. Will Addison is unfortunate to miss out after a strong performance for Sale. Addison kicked 14 points after taking over the responsibility from AJ MacGinty, as Sale defeated Leicester 34-30.12. Rory HutchinsonHutchinson had a dream debut for Northampton, scoring a crucial try as the Saints edged past Exeter 20-19 . The centre, whose ambition is to play for Scotland at Test level, will certainly achieve that if he can regularly replicate performances like the one delivered on Friday night.11. George NorthNorth retains his spot in our side from last week. The Welsh winger grabbed Northamptons first try against visitors Exeter, and followed that by setting up another score for Rory Hutchinson. North was a constant attacking threat and his contributions proved crucial as Northampton secured a 20-19 victory over Exeter.10. Alex LozowskiLozowski marked his England elite player squad call-up by scoring two tries, notching in either half during a 39-0 bonus-point victory for Saracens over Bristol. The fly-half also kicked two conversions in the second half, as his fine recent form continues.Finn Russell and Jonathan Sexton are unfortunate not to make selection.9. Lloyd WilliamsWilliams put in a strong all-round performance despite Cardiff losing narrowly to Leinster. The Welsh No. 9 will need to keep playing well to remain in the thoughts of Warren Gatland, given the intense competition in that position from Rhys Webb and Gareth Davies.FORWARDS1. Alex AllanScottish prop Allan had an excellent game and provided a moment of magic to decide the game as Glasgow won 26-17 at Newport Gwent Dragons. The dazzling sidestep from the prop and subsequent try under the posts is a moment that will live long in the memory.2. Rory BestIreland captain Best was making his first start of the season for Ulster, and used all his extensive experience to put in a good shift in a narrow win against Ospreys.?3. Stephen ArcherArcher had a good game for Munster as they thrashed Zebre. The 28 year-old also scored a try in the second half. Archer has represented Ireland at U20 level and more recently Emerging Ireland, and is making his case for further recognition through such performances.4. Maro ItojeItoje has been a regular feature in our weekly Lions side and, after his sensational winning streak ended last week, he returns to our side this time around. Itoje was excellent yet again in combination with George Kruis as Saracens comfortably beat Aviva Premiership newcomers Bristol 39-0.5. George KruisKruis was the stand-out performer for Saracens as he led a pack that battered Bristol. Kruis dominated the line-out, was everywhere in the loose and drive relentlessly at the home defence. The performance was described as exceptional by Mark McCall. Not a bad way to mark your return following a three match absence due to a back spasm.6. Cameron NeildThe Sale blindside flanker faced a daunting individual battle against opposite number Mike Williams, and outplayed the man who may well feature in Eddie Jones plans in the autumn. Such a feat reflects both a fine individual display and a clear sign of the progress Neild is making.7. Justin TipuricWelsh international Tipuric was the man-of-the-match despite being on the losing side as Ulster defeated Ospreys 9-7. Tipuric has been putting in consistently good performances this season that can do his international and Lions chances no harm.8. Nathan HughesThe Wasps No.8 was in sublime form for the league-leaders as they took down Harlequins at the Ricoh Arena. He features in Englands EPS ahead of the autumn Tests and will be hopeful of a first cap. Nike Air Max Kopen Goedkoop .Y. - Rob Manfred was promoted Monday to Major League Baseballs chief operating officer, which may make him a candidate to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner.

Varlamov made 33 saves and Ryan OReilly had a goal and scored in the shootout as the Avalanche beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1 on Thursday night. When two competitors enter the Octagon on fight night, the mentality of these fighters is not to pay attention to the odds. A fight is a fight, and any distraction from the violent challenge facing them from the other side of the cage is too dangerous a trait to remain long among elite competitors.Yet its impossible to believe that any human, not matter how well-conditioned or accustom to fighting, would not be aware when the whole world thinks they will lose. And those fighters who have continuously overachieved the expectations set upon them by the betting market have earned special recognition as cold-blooded winners who truly dont care what is supposed to happen on fight night in favor of what they determine to be their own fate. They rise to the occasion and topple kings and queens without regard. And the bettors that either saw these upsets in the making, or at least properly valued some regression to the mean against unjustified favorites, were likely rewarded handsomely.One fighter best exemplifies the value of over-performance, or market underestimation. If the question is Which fighter has been the best betting investment in UFC history, then the answer is , well, the Answer. Frankie the Answer Edgar. And its not even close.Taking only fighters with long careers in the UFC, we unsurprisingly see a list of well-known fighters, and plenty of champions and title contenders. Just to have 15 career fights in the UFC demands a fair bit of success early on, and these fighters all have performed admirably over time. But what differentiates these fighters is that they have significantly outperformed market expectations, either through unwavering success through long winning streaks, or also through being undervalued at the sports books and beating the odds. Frankie Edgar managed to be both of these: hes a winner who also was often underestimated.The ROI return equalizes bets to account for favorites and winneers, assuming an equal betting amount for each fighters performances. Nike Air Max Online Kopen. Big underdogs can return big profits for an upset, while steep favorites who always win offer stable and conservative bond-like returns. But in reality, big players in the betting markets will often make maximum bets when they choose to take a side, meaning they risk far more on favorites than when they take the underdog. Assuming this methodology gives a slightly different list of fighters return the most dollars profit.Interestingly, recently anointed champion Michael Bisping jumps to second on this list, thanks to two consecutive massive upsets against Anderson Silva and Luke Rockhold, on his way to the top of the middleweight ladder. Also notable on this list is Jon Jones, whose lone career loss via disqualification is the only thing preventing a perfect MMA record and a higher spot on both lists. We previously took a look at Joness career betting performance compared to Daniel Cormier?and the implications of their UFC 200 rematch on their returns.Several fighters on the list will be competing during the UFCs three International Fight Week cards this week, including Frankie Edgar, Jones, Rafael dos Anjos, Joe Lauzon. While Jones and dos Anjos are heavy favorites to win their fights that week, Edgar and Lauzon both have nearly pick em betting lines, meaning they could improve further up these lists with a win than the others. Edgar has only been unable to defeat two opponents in his career. One is Benson Henderson, now two divisions higher and competing in another promotion. But the other is Jose Aldo, and they will clash in a rematch at UFC 200. Current lines are giving Edgar the smallest edge at -115 in what is sure to be a closely contested bout.Visit Fightnomics?for more MMA stats and analysis. ' ' '

Growing up, Jill Geer wanted to be a professional football player. Cheap Brooks Robinson Jersey . But she chose track and field because she could control her own destiny -- she could depend on herself to win a race.The former sports writer is now the chief public affairs officer for USA Track & Field. Under her leadership, USATF has navigated the evolving world of digital media,?marketing and sponsorship.?Shes worked with many champion athletes and witnessed competitors break more than 30 world records.As she prepares for the Olympics in Rio next month, Geer is managing to remain calm, particularly amid the the disparaging headlines surrounding USATFs long-term sponsorship agreement with Nike. Geer, who is married and has a 10-year-old son named Hayden, opens the door to her busy life.?Coolest moment?In 2014, several members of the 1968 Olympic track and field team returned to Echo Summit, California, where the 1968 Olympic trials were held, and we had a ceremony honoring them.I had the opportunity to speak in front of the one group of people I would refer to as truly my heroes. They were men who were important to society, to the Olympic movement and to human rights as well. When I spoke, I saw my hero, bronze medalist John Carlos -- who raised a black-gloved fist during the American national anthem at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City -- nodding his head and telling me to preach. And at that moment, knowing that these men whom I thought were so important felt understood and appreciated almost moved me to tears.Focus to overcome obstacles?The correlation between distance running and any job is the ability to focus and overcome distractions, overcome pain and discomfort, whether its personal, physical or professional, to get something done. The things I am most proud of at work are often times where we face a great challenge and figure it out.Running the worldWhile traveling is a great way to get out and see the world, the fact is that once I reach my destination, Im working. I dont run on treadmills; I go out into the city and run. At various cities, running has become my sightseeing because there is too much work to be done to be doing any vacationing.Have perspectiveDont take anything personally, and then you can deal with whatever the issue is in a professional way. The most important thing in dealing with a sensitive issue or a crisis is to first take a step back. When its a sensitive topic, especially in the social media world, you have to step back and see: Who is it coming from and how many people are really contributing?In the social media world, very few people get very active on social to say positive things. Its important to keep perspective with any issue. Acknowledge concern while pointing out factual basis.Positive thinking is keyThe great thing is that whether its the Olympic trials -- which last for a week and a half in Oregon -- or the Olympic Games or any of our events, regardless of if you are ready for them, they arrive, they start, they happen, they finish and they go great! Its just something that we manage. We do what we need to do to succeed, just like our championship athletes.Anything a guy can do, I can doWhen I was an athlete, or even as a professional, whether its right or wrong, Ive never self-identified first as a female. I never thought of myself as a female athlete or a woman in sports. Ive been an athlete and a person in sports first. For me that was a good thing because it meant that in no way I limited myself throughout my whole life. Anything a guy can do, I can do. That was never even a question.Sisterhood in sportsIm really appreciative of the sisterhood Ive always had with female journalists. Women in sports just have a different kind of experience than men in sports.Be gratefulNo job is cool every day, and every job has days where you wonder what youre doing. But if youre fortunate enough to get a cool job, it is so important to be grateful for the job you have and to the people who helped you get there.Always try new thingsPushing yourself out of your comfort zone is how you grow and really stay engaged in your job. Ive been here for 16 years, and this job has never been boring to me. That is one of the highest compliments I can give a job because to not burn out after 16 years is saying something for me.Byron Linnell Edwards is a run coach, marathoner and triathlete.

Left the ball out over the plate to Donaldson and he hit it out. Second, third, fourth innings, really got ahead in the count, threw a lot of first-pitch strikes and controlled the zone.

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Winning makes everything easier, particularly selling tickets. Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping . After playing the best hockey in franchise history down the stretch, the Columbus Blue Jackets have enjoyed an upsurge at the box office in recent weeks. The team says it has seen a 13-per cent improvement in season-ticket renewals from one year ago, when the Blue Jackets were coming off perhaps their worst season in the NHL and sold around 7,000 season tickets. The team has sold almost 1,000 new season-ticket plans including fans who upgraded to larger packages. Its a major difference from when the club was a doormat -- especially for those charged with talking to the fan base and selling them tickets. "Theres no question a lot of the conversations are more pleasant than they were perhaps last year," Blue Jackets senior vice-president and chief marketing officer John Browne said with a laugh. "People are very emotional about it, very passionate about it. They want their opinion to be heard. Theres no question over the last few months as the team continued to play really well, those less-than-friendly conversations are far fewer than they were." Its been a remarkable turnaround. Those visiting the teams website at www.bluejackets.com are now greeted by a picture of fans smiling while a scrum of players celebrate a goal. Emblazoned over the scene are the words, "The Best Is Yet To Come." After having far and away the worst record in the league during the 2011-12 season, the Blue Jackets came out of the owners lockout and were dead last in the league (5-12-2) again in late February. But then, spurred on by new acquisitions, wily veterans and up-and-coming players, they went on a 19-5-5 tear that tied them with Minnesota for eighth place in the Western Conference. They missed out on the playoffs in a tiebreaker. They drew a capacity crowd of 19,002 to their season finale at Nationwide Arena, welcomed more than 17,000 in each of the two home games before that, and finished the year averaging 14,562 in attendance. "The crowd was electric," centre Brandon Dubinsky said after the final game, a come-from-behind 3-1 win over Nashville. Dubinsky previously played for the New York Rangers and came over in the ballyhooed deal that shipped Rick Nash -- Columbus captain and the franchise record holder in almost every offensive category -- to the Big Apple last summer. The fans were caught up in the sudden reversal of fortune by the team. "They really appreciated the hard work that was put in and us proving everyone wrong. All the so-called experts picked us to finish dead last," defenceman Jack Johnson said after the season. "Its kind of the old, when someone says you cant do it youre determined to prove them wrong. Everyone around the city really appreciated it." Now the teams website also carries the prompt, "Next season starts today. Get the best seats now." Most of the team is expected back next season, including old hands R.J. Umberger and Fedor Tyutin, rising young stars Cam Atkinson and Matt Calvert and relatively recent acquisitions Marian Gaborik and Nick Foligno. The club also has three first-round picks in the June 30 amateur draft. Adding to the excitement is that the Blue Jackets (along with longtime nemesis Detroit) move to the Eastern Conference next season. That means less travel, easier access to broadcast road games for fans who have to work the next day and renewed interest in potential rivals. "We know from research that the NHL has done, in addition to Columbus Blue Jackets fans, eight of the top 10 teams that they identify with as other teams they follow are Eastern Conference teams," Browne said. So the first step was earning some respect by winning games. Now general manager Jarmo Kekalainen and director of hockey operations John Davidson must keep the fans engaged with a team that continues to be competitive. "I havent heard the building that loud," said forward Jared Boll, the Blue Jackets longest-tenured player, the next day after the season ended. "It just shows you these fans are really here to stay and they want a winning team." Cheap Jerseys From China . "I wrote 36 on my sheet at the beginning of the game," the Cincinnati coach said, referring the yard line the ball would need to be snapped from. Stitched Jerseys . "Trying to breathe," he said with a grin.

NEW YORK -- Stanislas Wawrinka, as he was known then, had lost to Novak Djokovic 10 straight times when they met in the fourth round of the 2013 Australian Open. Cheap Nike Shoes Ireland .Wawrinka, summoning something from deep within, pushed the world No. 1 to his outer limits before losing 12-10 in the fifth set. The match lasted longer than five hours -- and, more than three years later, the confidence the 31-year-old Wawrinka gained is still with him.Thats when I start to believe and realize myself that, Yeah, maybe I can beat top player in Grand Slam, Wawrinka said Friday. It took me little time. I did it step by step by coming back into the top 10, by making first quarter, French, first semifinal.Based on the head-to-head record, Sundays US Open mens final between No. 1 Djokovic and No. 3 Wawrinka would seem to be a mismatch. Djokovic, the best player in tennis for five years now, maintains a 19-4 margin.But in the crucible of the Grand Slams, Wawrinka has become a different, dominant player.Two years ago at the Australian Open, he beat Djokovic 9-7 in the fifth set of their quarterfinal match, and then tagged No. 1-ranked Rafael Nadal in the final. It was Wawrinkas first major title, and it changed the trajectory of his career. The second came last year at Roland Garros, when he beat Djokovic in an astonishing four-set final.So, Djokovic said after beating Gael Monfils in a wacky four-set semifinal, both of these Grand Slam trophies that he has, he won against me on the way. So I know right now, having two Grand Slam titles and Olympic medal and Davis Cup under his belt, he believes in himself more.Hes a big-match player. He loves to play in the big stage against big players, because thats when he, I think, elevates his level of performance in his game.According to Wawrinka, who beat Kei Nishikori in four sets in the semifinals, playing against Djokovic leaves him no choice.The secret is simple: I have to play my best tennis, my best game, Wawrinka said. Hes the No. 1 player, amazing fighter, amazing player, but I have enough confidence in myself that when I play my best level I can beat him.When you play Novak, the No. 1 player in the final of Grand Slam, its the biggest challenge you can have.And that challenge will be bigger Sunday because of the way this fortnight has unfolded.Djokovic, who came in nursing right arm and left wrist injuries, received some extraordinary luck when three opponents were forced to quit: Jiri Vesely (withdrew from second-round match), Mikhail Youzhny (retired in the third round after six games) and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (retired in the quarterfinals after two sets).While Wawrinka has played a draining 23 sets and 237 games, Djokovic is at 13 sets, 118 games. He has a chance to tie or surpass the record for fewest sets and games in an Open era major that featured a 128-man draw and only best-of-five-set matches. John McEnroe won the 1979 US Open playing 16 sets and 150 games.Wawrinka, who needed to save a match point against Dan Evans in the third round, has slowly rounded into form. In his past two matches, against Juan Martin del Potro and Nishikori, Wawrinka seemed to get stronger as time went on.I had no pain so far, Wawrinka said Friday. Im quite happy with my body where I am, and we will see now in two days. Hopefully Im going to be fresh enough with Novak, who didnt have too much time on the court.Aesthetically, this is a pleasing matchup. Djokovic said Wawrinka has the best one-handed backhand in the business and admires his variety. Wawrinka, who will be the more aggressive player on offense, acknowledges Djokovic as perhaps the games best defender.For Wawrinka, it all goes back to that match three years ago in Melbourne.I saw so many players not even thinking they can beat [the Big Four] when they step on the court, he said. I always try to believe in something, that maybe one day I can beat them, and thats what happen in the past few years.Wawrinka has won two of the past three meetings against Djokovic in Slams. On this occasion, the intertwined yin-yang of Wawrinkas belief will have to overcome a huge physical disadvantage. Buy Nike Shoes Online Ireland .
