At least not now.Harrison, 26, became the first American -- female or male -- to win two gold medals in judo Thursday and said she plans to retire from competing in the sport. But at the moment, she does not plan to follow Rousey, a bronze medalist in judo at the 2008 Olympics.Its just so different from judo, Harrison said. Its such a different atmosphere from the Olympic stage. ... After a match in judo, you shake a persons hand or you give them a hug. You bow to them to show respect. MMA isnt like that. I dont know if Im cut out for a world where you get fights based on how pretty you are and how much you talk, not necessarily what youve done in the ring.Right now, Im going to be focused on being [a] two-time Olympic champion, enjoy the moment and live in the moment. Never say never, but right now, the answer is no to MMA.Harrison says her goal is to help judo grow to another level in the United States, though she acknowledged that being in MMA could give her a bigger platform to spread the word.Im going to have to talk to [my coaches] and my manager and see what offers are out there and what it is that Im going to do, she said. Who doesnt want to be rich and famous at some point in their life? I yearn for that, but I also see the platform and see how many eyes watch MMA and how much reach I could have with something like that. Given that, it is tempting, but I just won an Olympic gold medal on the biggest stage in the world, so are there going to be more eyes there or where I am now?Harrison said she has received multiple offers from various organizations asking her to fight in MMA competitions, but she has so far turned them all down. Her coach, Jimmy Pedro, said he doubted she wouldd turn pro, adding she was too nice of a person to do mixed martial arts. Josh Reynolds Jersey. .After Harrison won the Olympic title in London, she vowed to retire from the competitive grind of the Japanese martial art. She wanted to focus on other things, like becoming a firefighter.That goal, however, kind of dissolved, she said. She is now planning to spend more time working on her foundation, Fearless, which aims to help victims of sexual abuse. Harrison herself endured years of sexual abuse by a previous judo coach.On Thursday, Harrison became the first American to defend an Olympic judo title when she forced?Audrey Tcheumeo?of France to tap out in the final.With just six seconds left in an otherwise scoreless final, Harrison trapped Tcheumeo in a move that threatened to break her arm, forcing her to submit and handing the American an automatic ippon victory.This is my legacy, Harrison said. I retire as a two-time Olympic champ, one of the greatest the sport has ever seen.Earlier, Harrison won two preliminary fights within minutes after pinning her opponents to the mat for 20 seconds.Tcheumeo advanced to the final by beating Myra Aguiar of Brazil. Harrison and Aguiar had been expected to meet in the final.Judo is a sport where the margin of error is slim to none, Pedro said. For Kayla to [defend her title] really is epic.Aguiar and Anamari Velensek won bronze medals.In the mens 100-kilogram division,?Lukas Krpalek?of the Czech Republic won the countrys first judo gold after defeating?Elmar Gasimov?of Azerbaijan.The mens bronze medals were won by Cyrille Maret of France and Ryunosoke Haga of Japan.The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Jamaal Williams Packers Jersey .The former representative superstar will remain with the club until at least the end of the 2018 NRL season, after trying his hand at the NFL in the US and Rugby Sevens for Fiji since departing Parramatta in 2014.Not in my wildest dreams I ever thought I would be up on the Gold Coast, Hayne said.The former NSW and Australian representative had previously committed to a lifetime deal with Parramatta when he left.He said the decision not to return to the Eels was a hard one but he had still not received a formal offer from the club, which had been destabilised by the salary cap scandal, and needed to make a decision.A part of me is sad because Im not going to go back to the club that I grew up with and loved as a kid, he said.At the end of the day I wanted to play footy this year.The way that the board is - the way things have gone this year, couldnt get something done, its sad and it hurts me just as much as I know it hurts the fans down there.Gold Coast coach Neil Henry hailed the signing as a significant boost for the club.We all know what a talent he is, Henry said.I know that our players are excited to be able to welcome him to the club and, more importantly, engage with him and see him on the footy field performing in the Titans jumper.Titans CEO Graham Annesley said he was expecting a massive crowd a Cbus Super Stadium on Sunday to see Haynes club debut.More to followJARRYD HAYNES NRL LIFE: Born: February 15, 1988 (age 28)NRL career: Debut: May 19 2006, v Penrith Panthers Games: 176 Tries: 103 Honours: 2 Dally M Medals (2009, 2014), 3 Brad Fittler Medals (2007, 2008, 2014), RLIF player of the year award (2009).Representative career: State of Origin: 20 matches for NSW, nine tries Australia: 12 matches, 11 tries Fiji: 4 matches, 3 tries.

After watching tape of the Green Bay Packers, its apparent the teams struggle on offense has multiple layers. Justin Evans Youth Jersey . From the personnel to the route schemes to the play calling, there is validity in dissecting any of those topics. And I would agree that, in some instances, static formation looks and the isolation routes have created adverse situations for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.But theres no doubt Rodgers himself has regressed, specifically in his technique. Below, well examine three areas -- deep-ball efficiency, decision-making on timing routes, and accuracy in a clean pocket -- in which Rodgers has looked like a different quarterback than his 2014 MVP season. Then well propose how he can get each back on track.?Deep-ball efficiencyThe numbersRodgers on passes that travel 20-plus yardsDuring the 2014 season, Rodgers was a master of the deep ball, ranking first in yards per attempt on passes that traveled 20 yards or more in the air. Looking at the numbers from this season, its clear he has taken a major step back. In fact, only Jameis Winston, Brock Osweiler, Blake Bortles and Blaine Gabbert have a worse yards-per-attempt figure than Rodgers on deep passes in 2016.The tapeWhat I saw in 2014: In the example below, from 2014 versus the Atlanta Falcons, the Packers run a sting route versus a deep half safety. Its a deep double move with Jordy Nelson stemming to the corner and then breaking back across the face of the safety to the post. The key here is Rodgers ball placement and technique. With max protection, Rodgers has time to set his base, take a quick crow-hop and step into the throw. That allows Rodgers to follow through on the ball while keeping his shoulders pointed toward the target down the field. These are ideal mechanics to generate power from his core and velocity on an over-the-top release. With Nelson separating from the safety, the result is an absolute dime from Rodgers. Ball on the upfield shoulder. Perfect placement to get six.What I see in 2016:? O. J. Howard Womens Jersey Chris Godwin Youth Jersey . -- Ken Appleby made 32 saves for his first shutout of the season to lead the Oshawa Generals to a 2-0 win over the Belleville Bulls on Wednesday in Ontario Hockey League action. http://www.buccaneersapparelsshop.com/kendell-beckwith-buccaneers-jersey-c-56/ .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable.Claudio Ranieri thinks Leicester will benefit from a new Jamie Vardy after the forward was on target for England. Having been prolific during Leicesters title-winning campaign, Vardy was without a goal in 14 games for club and country going into the friendly with Spain.But the 29-year-old enjoyed a good night at Wembley, winning a penalty from which the hosts took the lead and then scoring with a fine diving header to double the advantage. Spain came back to score twice late on to snatch a draw but Vardy had been substituted by then and Leicester boss Ranieri thinks his player will be on the crest of a wave for Saturdays trip to Watford.

It was important for him and for everybody.Of course he never spoke about this, but the goal-scorer always wants to score. I think it will be a new Vardy.He always works hard for the team. The goal was a fantastic goal, and thats OK. It will help me, help the team and help himself.I never lost confidence in Jamie. I have managed a lot of goal-scorers and its not possible to score all the time. Ranieri says at no point has he lost faith in Vardy Sometimes they have a little stop and then restart. Kendell Beckwith Buccaneers Jersey. I tried to help him and take him out.Vardy was on target 24 times last season and hopes his England goal will kick-start a scoring streak.I think its been needed and hopefully I can kick on from there now and start banging them in, he said.Its just always good to get that goal. That one is in the back of the net now and hopefully I can kick on and start putting more away. Vardy was instrumental in Leicesters title triumph last season I just think a lot of the chances I was getting last year have not been there this year.Its just all about working hard and eventually theyll come. I think it always happens when youre a striker.You do go through spells without scoring but eventually it will come back and youll be banging them in again.At the end of the day the team comes first and its about how youre working hard for the team - the bonuses come after, which is obviously the goals.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Adidas Henrik Lundqvist Jersey . -- Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright believes he will be ready for Tennessees season opener Sept. 11 against Minnesota even though he couldnt finish his first practice in a month.Wright aggravated the left hamstring he originally strained Aug. 2 during a short passing route, and coach Mike Mularkey said he likely wont play the wide receiver Thursday night in the preseason finale at Miami. The Titans coach did not have an update on the severity of the injury when he spoke after practice.The receiver talked inside the locker room and smiled as he discussed about his latest injury.I was feeling good all day, Wright said. I probably overdid it because just being out there ... and just trying to do a lot being out there with the fellows. I think Ill be all right, and I think Ill be able to play in the opener.Wright, the 20th draft pick overall in 2012, missed six games last season with broken ribs and an injured left knee. He wound up with only 36 catches for 408 yards and three touchdowns starting nine games. Now the Titans starters are Rishard Matthews, a veteran signed in free agency from Miami, and rookie Tajae Sharpe with Wright expected to work in the slot.The wide receiver said he believes he can be effective despite missing a month of practice. Timing with Marcus Mariota is the only issue, and Wright said hell make sure to spend extra time working one-on-one with the quarterback once hes back again. Wright also sounds pretty confident in just how much work he needs to fine-tune his rhythm with Mariota.One throw each route, and I think well be good, Wright said. Its that simple. Marcus knows where to put it, and all I got to do is catch it.Cornerback Perrish Cox not only returned to practice for the first time in two weeks from an ankle injury, and he said he feels really good. Mularkey agreed, saying theres a good chance Cox plays against Miami.---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Rangers Jerseys China . Thousands of Southern California fans enveloped the Trojans to celebrate an improbable win secured by an interim coach, an inconsistent kicker and a thin defence that wouldnt break. Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys . -- Al Jefferson found a groove just in time for the Charlotte Bobcats. http://www.cheapnewyorkrangersjerseys.com/ .C. -- When North Carolina freshman Ryan Switzer reported to training camp in August he was a little miffed to learn he was third on the depth chart at punt returner. 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. Cheap Rangers Jerseys. .It was kind of tight throughout, Chatwood said. Its hard when youre pitching hurt. The game is hard as it is.The Phillies scored three runs in the fifth to break a 3-all tie. Freddy Galvis hit the go-ahead RBI single, Paredes doubled home a run and Cesar Hernandez had an RBI single to give the Phillies a 6-3 lead.SLOPPY PLAYOn a hot, humid afternoon, the teams played sloppy baseball by combining for five errors, a wild pitch, a balk and a hit batter. 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. He was out of the starting lineup after starting Saturday nights game, but said he didnt suffer a setback and the club thought it best for him to rest his ankle on a day game following a night game.UP NEXTColorado returns home for the start of a six-game homestand that begins Monday night for the first of three against the Nationals.

Tuesdays evening slate of NBA action offers up 11 games. Jamal Adams Jersey . Which players should you build around and which players should you fade? Our experts have the answers.Todays panel includes ESPN Fantasys Kyle Soppe, Joe Kaiser, plus DFS expert Renee Miller.Players to build aroundKyle Soppe - DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento KingsFor those who have been paying attention, I kind of love me some Cousins and this is a good spot to experience what owning Boogie feels like if you missed out (or drafted with me) this preseason. Hes an explosive player with plenty of warts, but against a bottom-five rebounding team that is the least efficient defense in basketball? Cmonnn. Only that Russell Westbrook guy has a higher usage rate than Cousins this season and given that the Blazers surrender nearly 45 points a night in the paint, is there any reason to think Cousins cant maintain his December averages (27 points, 11 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 blocks-plus-steals)? Im not thinking so. The Blake Griffin injury has made some dirt cheap options viable in the short-term and with the most efficient offense in NBA history playing the Nets tonight, there are value plays aplenty north of the border. At the very least, you get entertainment value from watching Cousins, but I expect strong bang for your DFS buck as well.Renee Miller -- Garrett Temple, Sacramento KingsTemple is so affordably priced that he allows you to build around him with expensive guards, expensive centers, or both. There are plenty of ways to go at the top of the salary ladder and guys like Temple make it possible. Temple has been the primary beneficiary of Rudy Gays hip injury, and with Omri Casspi doubtful for tonights game with the Trail Blazers, a game that Vegas has as a pick em with a high total, Temple is again in a position to exceed value. With solid three-category production despite horrible shooting Sunday vs. the Mavericks, Temple has the high floor I like to build around. Its worth noting that hes a much more favorable value on FanDuel.Joe Kaiser -- Chris Paul, Los Angeles ClippersPauls usage rate and scoring will rise in the absence of Blake Griffin and tonight he faces a Denver team that is one of the worst in the league at defending point guards. The Nuggets have also given up 107 points or more in their last three games. If there was ever a night to pay up for one of the highest-priced point guards on the board, this is it.Players to fadeKyle Soppe -- DeAndre Jordan, Los Angeles ClippersWith Blake Griffin sidelined for the next 3-to-6 weeks, Id expect Jordan to assume a greater role in this offense ... and Im not sure thats a good thing. Jordans value comes from hanging around the rim, but if the Clips turn to him for more touches within their half-court offense, they could be taking away his strengths. The Nuggets arent exactly a formidable opponent, but they do lead the league in rebounding rate, which, in theory, is how the Clippers typically get the ball to Jordan. If Im rostering Jordan (or any player with this limited skill set) , Im banking on 15 rebounds and hoping that the points follow. Im not sold on a high floor tonight, so I will be spending big on Cousins at the center position instead of going what I expect to be a very common route with Jordan.Renee Miller -- Anthony Davis, Power Forward, New Orleans PelicansDavis is coming off two really bad (for him) road games against good frontcourt defenses. Hes playing through a painful leg injury which probably hasnt helped matters. He took fewer shots in those games than usual, and while his efficiency was okay, the lack of volume combined with the lack of peripheral stat production has been hurting his bottom line in terms of fantasy points. In particular Davis isnt getting as many points (-10) or rebounds (-4) on the road. The lingering injury, the road tilt and the plethora of other ways I can spend more than $11,000 tonight have me fading Davis even in a good matchup with Philadelphia.Joe Kaiser -- Isaiah Thomas, Boston CelticsThomas has reached 40 DFS points only once in the last six games, battling a groin injury along the way, and tonight he faces a Memphis squad ranked as the top defensive unit in basketball (99.3 points allowed per 100 possessions). This is the wrong time to expect Thomas to bust out with a big game.

Marcus Maye Youth Jersey .Y. - Nelson Mandela will be honoured by the New York Yankees with a plaque in Monument Park. http://www.thejetsjerseysshoponline.com/Youth-Marcus-Maye-Letes-Jersey/ . But by the time the game started, the Toronto Raptors forward felt even worse. And, for three quarters, it showed as Gay shot a woeful three-for-13 from the field. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Youre not working hard enough, Alistair Brownlee yelled at another rider in the 10-man leading pack that had split the field on the triathlon cycle.He wanted more from them despite the punishing pace at Forte de Copacabana, and it was typical of the aggressive racing style he shares with brother Jonny which made them Olympic champion and silver medallist on Thursday.The Brownlees were trying to wring every lost drop of strength and stamina from the group as they wheeled towards the crucial third, and final, 10km running leg of the race, all 10 taking it in turn to alternate between slipstreaming and pushing the pace.The British brothers back themselves to go harder and for longer than anyone else, to obliterate a fatigued field. They are relentless and singled-minded in their pursuit of creating those circumstances in races too; Alistair, the first man to defend an Olympic triathlon title, said he would have preferred the cycle course to have been a lot harder.I know what to look for when people are hurting, he said, and the brothers competitive nature is such that in a different environment it might sound mean.Theres no sibling sympathy, either. They work together in races and had built a gap between them and the third-placed Frenchman Vincent Luis here on the first lap of the running course. Then, Alistair made his move to attack his brother.I started pushing it on, the 28-year-old said. Jonny said relax and I just thought: if hes telling me to relax hes probably finding this quite hard. So I pushed it on a little bit more.Ask anyone who has worked with or competed against the Brownlees and they will tell you how hard-working and focused they are. The more healthy suffering they can experience, the better, it seems.I have been through hell this year, Alistair said. Every day has been so hard. I have woken up in pain every day.I had ankle surgery not even 12 months ago, at the back end of August last year. I didnt really run pain free until the new year. I am not one to question whether I can do it, but I did.I put on quite a lot of weight. But once you start training, training is what I love. Those sessions have been harder than races: a few times a week absolutely killing myself, going to bed not being able to sleep because my legs hurt so much, getting up in the morning and not being able to walk because my ankles were so stiff.Its been like that for the last six months with a few bumps and injuries along the way. Thats all of it, but the training is what I love doing. Killing myself to finish a session.It sounds kind of masochistic but thats pretty much par for the course for an endurance athlete. Jonny was on crutches around the same time Alistair had ankle surgery, recovering from a foot stress fracture, and the pair have pushed each other through the pain barrier and back to peak fitness.The mental strength which they have in spades is at least as important as physical ability and, in that respect, they are lucky to have each other.It has to relieve the pressure to have your brother out there with you in training and races -- even if, in Jonnys case, he is usually coming off second best when it counts.There havent been that many siblings as talented as the Brownlees and they are the first brothers to finish first and second at an Olympics since Italians Piero and Raimondo DInzeo in equestrian in 1960; the first British brothers to do so.You can always get a first if you look hard enouggh, said 26-year-old Jonny, towards the end of a Games which has been overflowing with British landmark moments. Marcus Maye Jets Jersey. But that is a good first and I am very proud of that.Its very special to race next to your brother and Im very fortunate to do that.The result of their strength and synergy was obvious on Thursday, and their podium positions never really seemed in doubt. Even though neither was the fastest on any of the three legs, they were near the front throughout and the combined effort -- and the tactics which sapped their rivals energy -- meant they were a long way ahead at the end.Alistair won in 1 hour, 45 minutes, 1 second, and Jonnys time was only 6 seconds behind, although his older brother had slowed to a walk near the finish line, waiting a little for him and celebrating with a Union Flag and a Yorkshire flag, their English county.Alistair was determined to drink in the moment, not least because of the contrast to London four years ago when his win felt more like relief because of the pressure to perform in a home Games. If you cant enjoy having that gap in the Olympic Games, coming down that finishing straight, I dont know what you can enjoy, he said after finishing 42 seconds ahead of third-placed Henri Schoeman, even with the dallying at the line.The Brownlees collapsed and hugged each other on the other side of the finish here and, as Jonny -- a bronze medallist four years ago -- admitted, hes not an emotional racer.The one-two was what they had hoped for in London but, with 2012 silver medallist Javier Gomez absent through injury this time, it was what they had looked forward to here.How their racing and training partnership, and post-race jubilation, can be reconciled with their individual competitive instincts, however, is hard to fathom.Jonny insisted he feels no jealousy, although he admitted that the green-eyed monster might haunt him if he gets to the twilight of his career and a golden victory over his brother has still eluded him.But even the Brownlees dont know really why their sibling rivalry works, no matter how many times they are asked. Weve never had a great answer to it, he said. Its been going on since we were three years old. Competing at football, table tennis, running round the garden, weve always done it.Im used to getting beat by Alistair but Ive gone better than last time in London when I got the bronze. Ive actually been training a bit better than him and if it had come down to a sprint, I could win. Maybe in four years, hell be older, slower and greyer.The question more is whether the older Brownlee will be fit. In 2012, before his ankle issue, he struggled with an Achilles injury and he has had to work daily on the conditioning for that ever since.Triathlon is what I love, Alistair said. I want to have a go at Ironman at some point and I will be doing some sort of sport. But it has always been about the Olympics for me. I remember watching it in Atlanta when I was eight and the triathlon debut at Sydney when I was 12.The Olympics is the big thing and I think it would be hard for me not to be in Tokyo.Those close to Alistair Brownlee say that once he sets his mind on something, nothing can make him deviate. So, Tokyo it is, then -- and more history as the three-time champion, perhaps. It would take someone seriously special to beat him.

SEOUL, South Korea -- South Koreas Moon Dae-sung has been suspended as a member of the International Olympic Committee over allegations that he plagiarized his doctoral thesis. Daeshon Hall Womens Jersey .The IOC said that that Moons membership will be suspended until South Koreas Supreme Court reaches a verdict over his dispute with a Seoul university, which stripped him of his degree in 2014 after concluding that he stole from the works of another researcher.The IOC says the decision was based on a recommendation by its Ethics Commission, which acknowledged damage to the reputation of the Olympic Movement.A former taekwondo Olympic champion, Moons eight-year term as an IOC member is due to end after this years Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Stephen Curry Panthers Jersey . Ivanovic was leading 7-5, 1-0 when Hantuchova withdrew after falling 0-40 behind in the second game.

Bryant, who signed a five-year, $34 million contract as a free agent with Cleveland in March, reported symptoms on Monday morning, a team spokesman said. http://www.footballpanthersstore.us/Black-Friday-Curtis-Samuel-Jersey/ . - After leading the Saints to a fourth playoff appearance in five seasons, Drew Brees expressed confidence in the direction of his team and, perhaps more importantly, showed a willingness to listen to contract proposals if the team needs his help getting under the NFLs salary cap. Ospreys teenager Keelan Giles has been described as an X factor player after being called into Wales autumn Test squad.The 18-year-old uncapped wing replaces Hallam Amos, who suffered a shoulder injury during Wales 32-8 capitulation to Australia three days ago and now faces probable surgery.While Giles, who had been training alongside the squad as an additional player before Tuesdays development, appears unlikely to feature against Principality Stadium visitors Argentina next Saturday, a Test debut looks inevitable sooner, rather than later.Giles starred for Wales Under-20s last season and he has scored eight tries in five Ospreys appearances this season, prompting many pundits to make comparisons with Wales all-time record try scorer Shane Williams, given his blistering pace and dazzling footwork.We have got a lot of good players, a lot of good wingers, Wales skills coach Neil Jenkins said.Keelan has got to take his chance with both hands and show the coaches and the players involved what he is all about. He has already done it with the Ospreys, and I am sure he will do that in our environment.He has got a little bit of X-factor about him. He is a different player to some of the other guys weve got. I know a lot of people will bring similarities with Shane [Williams] and stuff.Keelan is not the biggest of players, but hes electric on his feet and he is brave. We will see how the next couple of weeks go, and you never know.Amos, who impressed when he went on as a second-half substitute last weekend, has been released back to his region Newport Gwent Dragons.Wales interim head coach Rob Howley is due to name his team for the Pumas visit on Thursday, and there will be changes following Australias demolition job.Gareth Davies is expected to replace injured scrum-half Rhys Webb, while skipper Sam Warburton, lock Alun Wyn Jones and centre Jonathan Davies should all be back in the mix, and Liam Williams will strengthen Howleys back-three options if he has regained full fitness. Harrison Butker Youth Jersey. .The Wallabies inflicted a heaviest home defeat on Wales for 10 years, and Jenkins knows from some of his experiences as an international player just how bad the feeling is.Its what you dream of, representing your country, performing well and winning, but when things dont go to plan, its not the best day and it does take quite a few days to get over it, he added.Sport gives you a chance to go again, a chance to redeem yourself and put the wrongs right. I think a lot of us would liked to have played [again] on Saturday night if we could have done.It is hugely disappointing. You dont want to let yourself, your country, your team-mates, your family, your friends or the fans down.You give your all for your country. There is a big build-up to matches and there is a lot of pressure. When it doesnt go to plan, its hugely disappointing.Wales have beaten Argentina in four of the countries last five meetings, but Jenkins knows their danger and has been impressed with how they have modified their game.After our performance on Saturday, they will certainly come here fancying their chances, he said.It is up to us to make sure that we play like we can play, and if we can do that, we are more than capable of doing a job on Saturday and winning the game.They [Argentina] play a high-risk, high reward game now.There are an incredible number of off-loads in their game, quick tap penalties, quick lineouts and the like. They play at a high tempo, and we are going to have to be on the money on Saturday.They have evolved and improved their game over the last three or four years.

Ive played my last game as captain. Kevin King Youth Jersey . It was a pretty enjoyable match to go out on, and I won the toss.It will take some adjusting to running around without that title next year. Will I run out onto the ground second, or last? Im not sure where Ill fit.Captaining the Saints for the past 11 years has been an incredible honour and its something Ill certainly miss, but the time is right for someone else to lead the club.Leadership is something Ive always prided myself on, and Ill continue to lead strongly next year - it just wont be in an official capacity.Ive always maintained that whatever is in the clubs best interest, I would do. If me continuing in the role was the right move, I was committed to leading again. Richo and I have discussed the captaincy on multiple occasions over the past three years and that dialogue continued this year. Based on the development of our younger leaders, we have decided its time for someone else to step into the role.Im totally comfortable with the decision, but I have to admit I have a bit of an emotional attachment to being captain. Its a position I have a lot of respect for and I guess its shaped my identity to a certain degree. Im honored to have held the position for such a long period of time, so therell be a little bit of an adjustment now. Ill have to do a few things differently to allow the next person to grow the way they need to.Despite captaining a few teams in my junior days, I certainly wasnt 100 percent ready to be skipper when I first took it on in 2005. However, like any young leader I grew into it. In Robert Harvey, Fraser Gehrig, Andrew Thompson and Aaron Hamill, I had a plethora of fantastic mentors to learn from and they offered invaluable council. In making this decision now, we have afforded the next captain the same level of support as theyll still be able to utilise me, Leigh Montagna and a few other senior players as sounding boards.Captains are constantly challenged and the ability to learn on the job is imperative. Ive always been an assertive leader - which is one of my great strengths. But on occasions that strength has become a weakness when I have been either too demanding or demonstrative. I recall challenging a young player publically in a team meeting and it had a really adverse effect on them for probably a month - it crushed their confidence. In my eyes I was just holding them accountable in front of the group but they obviously didnt view it the same way. Thankfully the player involved rebounded after that down month and hes now a really strong player for us, but I had to realise everyone is different, and I couldnt treat everyone the same. This is but one lesson any new captain must learn and Im excited about the opportunity to help fast-track my successors development in areas such as this.Ill have to try to tread a fine line next year in some respects, ensuring I allow our next skipper to make his mark, but driving high standards for the good of the team will never be something I refrain from doing.Obviously a captain does more than just toss the coin at the start of the game and interact with media.Essentially the captain is an extension of both the playing and coaching groups; a bridge between the two. As captain Ive always been in constant dialogue with coaches, understanding their messaging and making sure the players understand that. Since Richo has been coach, in our last meeting before taking the field, hell go through our plan as to how we can win and how we want to play, but then Ill discuss expectations around effort and execution of everyones role. If there are any new players in the team Ill address them in front of the group on what we expect from any player pulling on a Saints jumper.Ive always been strong at articulating a message during the pre-game or half-time speech so everyone understands it and is inspired by it. Although after 11 years Im sure Ive been quite repetitive at times and sounded a bit like a broken record! Thats the challenge that comes with longevity in the role - trying to keep the message fresh and finding different ways to keep the group motivated.Being captain can definitely consume you - youre constantly thinking about the group and its biorhythms. Im not sure if that feeling will reduce because the title is gone - Ill have to wait and see.Looking back at my time as captain is an interesting one. We went through a period of strong, sustained success under Grant Thomas and Ross Lyon without quite reaching our ultimate goal, and then soon after we committed to a deliberate, transparent rebuild. That period was particularly challenging given the expectation to keep winning and play finals. When you fall short of that, its tough. That challenged me in different ways as a leader but Im potentially even more proud of the group through that period than I was when we were absolutely flying. With the group we had through that period of sustained success it was easier as captain because we had so many leaders. So to see how far weve come in the past couple of years, watching the young guys become strong leaders, Im really proud of that.Its always difficult judging leadership from the outside, but two captains I have an enormous amount of respect for are Bob Murphy and Luke Hodge. Murphy really inspired me last year with what he was able to do with a similar group at the Bulldogs - we had similarly strong teams in the late 2000s and both went through serious rebuilds, but Bobs leadership through that really impressed me me. Hodgeys done everything and clearly three flags as skipper speak to his success as a leader. I like his uncompromising style. He appears to hold his group incredibly accountable and is so ruthless on the field. Theyre my two standouts from the current crop of captains.As for who I think will take over from me, its difficult to settle on one name. Thats a good problem to have and is a reflection of our even spread of candidates. Itll probably come from the young guys in the leadership group currently - Jarryn Geary, Jack Steven, David Armitage, Mav Weller and Jack Newnes are all exceptionally strong leaders who have supremely high standards. Thats why Im stepping down now - because there are a number of really good leaders coming through.The club will certainly be in great hands with whoever we choose as captain, and Ill do everything I can to support them. I also know Ill be first to mock them if they stumble during their first pre-game address! Montravius Adams Youth Jersey . With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday. It was a victory that ended a decade of frustration for Parker and a talented French generation, which lost the final against Spain two years ago and took bronze in 2005. Josh Jones Jersey .

England coach Wayne Bennett has confirmed James Graham will be fit to face Australia in Sundays must-win Four Nations clash with Australia. Dalvin Tomlinson Womens Jersey .Canterbury skipper Graham sat out the win against Scotland last Saturday due to a medial ligament injury and there were doubts he wouldnt be fit to play in the London Olympic Stadium encounter on Sunday (Monday 0100 AEDT).Hell play, Bennett said.Its important to have him back, hes brings a lot. Hell be good for us.Bennett is also likely to restore St George Illawarras Gareth Widdop to the side after leaving the five-eighth out of the Scotland game.Hes experienced and played 20-odd Tests as well, he said.That brings a lot to the team, that is part of the decision I have to make.Widdops omission in favour of rookie Luke Gale did raise some eyebrows but Bennett insists it wasnt a decision he took because of the loss to New Zealand in Huddersfield in his sides tournament opener.It wasnt about form it was about giving other players opportunities to play and try and make the most of their month, he said.Theyve all had a game now and that is important to me.An England or Great Britain side havent beaten Australia since their memorable victory in Sydney 10 years ago and even if they do prevail against the Kangaroos it still may not be enough to reach the final on November 20.New Zealand play Scotland in Workington on Friday and if the Kiwis run up a huge score it could require England to chase points to better New Zealands points differential.But Bennett insists that scenario is not one he or his players can think about.Weve got to win the game, he said.It is pretty screwed up thinking (otherwise). Theyve got their hands full trying to beat Australia and not worrying about how many points they have to win by. Evan Engram Youth Jersey .

PHILADELPHIA -- Jimmy Paredes wouldve loved to hit a triple for the cycle, but hes happy nevertheless just to be able to contribute.Paredes singled, doubled, homered and drove in three runs and the Philadelphia Phillies held on to complete a three-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies with a 7-6 victory Sunday.Paredes, who entered batting .198 in a part-time role, matched his season-high for hits and RBI against Colorado while making a rare start in left field.They gave me my chance and I did the best I can, he said. You never know when theyre going to give you a chance. I come early every day to get ready and wait for my chance.The only thing sweeter wouldve been a triple to complete the cycle.Next time, Paredes said.Cesar Hernandez extended his on-base streak to 21 games with a fourth-inning walk and had an RBI single. Cameron Rupp, Odubel Herrera and Freddy Galvis also had RBI for the Phillies, who have won four straight games.Everybodys contributing, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. I feel like everybodys getting opportunities. When you win a game, the more players that are involved in that game, the happier I am. It unites the team.Charlie Blackmon homered twice and doubled for the Rockies, who have lost three in a row and seven of eight. Blackmon finished the series with five home runs, and is batting .548 with eight homers and 14 RBI in his last nine games.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.It was fun to watch, Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. When a guy gets in a zone like that, its pretty amazing.Blackmon downplayed his accomplishment.If you play baseball long enough, eventually youre going to get hot, he 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.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.Jeanmar Gomez gave up two runs but 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. Hundley hit a two-out, bases-loaded single to pull Colorado to within a run.The Phillies scored three runs in the fifth to break a 3-all tie. Galvis hit the go-ahead RBI single, Paredes doubled home a run and Hernandez had an RBI single to give the Phillies a 6-3 lead.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.On a hot, humid afternoon, the teams played sloppy baseball by combining for five errors, a wild pitch, a balk and a hit batter. There also was a botched tag and bobbled ball that resulted in a run for each team.The craziest inning was the bottom of the third whhen the Phillies scored a run to take a 2-1 lead. Evan Engram Giants Jersey. The Rockies had two errors, a wild pitch and a bobbled ball but managed to escape a one-out, bases-loaded jam, giving up just one run.After Aaron Altherr singled with one out and went to second on Chatwoods throwing error, Maikel Franco reached on third baseman Nolan Arenados throwing error. Both advanced on Chatwoods wild pitch, causing Chatwood to intentionally walk Ryan Howard to load the bases.Rupp then hit a grounder to first that looked like a sure out and possibly an inning-ending double play, but first baseman Ryan Raburn bobbled the ball and attempted to get the lead runner at home. The throw was late and the Phillies went up a run, but couldnt add on as Chatwood struck out Herrera and got Galvis to fly out.Arenado had a pair of errors and Chatwood and Daniel Descalso had one each for Colorado. Herrera dropped a ball in center field for Philadelphias lone error.CHATWOODS BACKChatwood 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 having further tests on Monday.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. He was out of the starting lineup after starting Saturday nights game, but said he didnt suffer a setback and the club thought it best for him to rest his ankle on a day game following a night game.Phillies: Morgan left the game in the fourth after suffering a left forearm contusion while taking Nick Hundleys line drive off his left forearm. Morgan, who was called up from Triple-A before the game in place of injured right-hander Zach Eflin, allowed two runs on five hits.UP NEXTRockies: Colorado returns home for the start of a six-game homestand that begins Monday night for the first of three against the Nationals. Rockies LHP Jorge De La Rosa (7-7, 5.25) faces Washington RHP Max Scherzer (12-7, 2.80).Phillies: The Phillies have Monday off before hosting Chase Utley and the Dodgers for three games beginning Tuesday night when Philadelphia RHP Vince Velasquez (8-4, 3.94) opposes Los Angeles RHP Kenta Maeda (11-7, 3.31). Utley will be making his first trip back to Philadelphia since being traded to the Dodgers last season.

The winter of 1969 was a time of great excitement in Indian cricket, especially when viewed through the eyes of a nine-year-old schoolboy in Bangalore. Cheap Blackhawks Jerseys China . India were locked in a competitive and often contentious Test series against Bill Lawrys visiting Australians and were trailing 1-2 at the end of four Tests, with a chance to draw level in the final Test, in Madras.Two Bangalore boys - Erapalli Prasanna and G Viswanath - had starred in the series. Prasanna was collecting wickets by the bucketful and was instrumental in India winning the Delhi Test. Meanwhile Viswanaths dazzling century on debut in Kanpur (25 boundaries in an innings of 137) marked the moment I became a lifelong cricket fan. Adding to the buzz was the upcoming wedding of Indias captain, Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi, to the glamorous movie star Sharmila Tagore.In those days, cricket tours were fairly lengthy affairs and Tests were sandwiched between three-day matches against various zonal teams. South Zone were to battle the Aussies just before Christmas in Bangalore, and my excitement mounted as I realised I was about to see the likes of Pataudi, ML Jaisimha (the captain), Prasanna, Viswanath, Syed Abid Ali and S Venkatraghavan, not to mention Lawry, Ian Chappell, Keith Stackpole, Ian Redpath and Doug Walters in real life.As in many a middle-class household at the time, various family members took turns watching the match, and I ended up at the Central College grounds with my dad for the third and final day. It would prove to be quite an initiation into the world of international cricket. Nothing but a rope and a ring of uninterested policemen separated us from the players on the field. The earliest memory I have is of the Australian fast bowler Laurie Maynes giant frame as he fielded a few yards away from me. His off-white cricket sweater hung loosely on him and looked as big as a blanket.I dont remember much at all about the first half of the days play but when the Australians began the fourth innings, things began to heat up rather rapidly. It seemed that just about every other over the crowd would unleash a deafening roar as Prasanna, with huge sideburns, upturned collar and shirt buttons left rakishly open, sent yet another Aussie batsman back to the pavilion. (When I checked the scorecard to write this piece, I realised I was not imagining the figures at all. At one point, the Australians were an incredible eight wickets down for 53 runs, chasing 200. Prasanna took six wickets for 11 runs off his 14 overs, ten of which were maidens.)I remember the excitement mounting to a frenzy as a South Zone victory neared. And then the mood began to turn ugly. From what I could see, two lanky batsmen in their green felt caps - Lawry and John Gleeson, one left-handed and the other right-handed - were sticking out their front pads and blocking most balls. Every time they did this, there would be a loud appeal from the fielders and, with far greater ferocity, from the crowd. For reasons that escaped me then and now, the umpires turned down every one of the appeals.South Zones bowling attack that day had two offies (Prasanna and Venkat) and two leggies (Bhagwath Chandrasekhar and VV Kumar) who between them bowled 39 overs. Even granting that lbws were a bit harder to get for spinners in that era, the fact that it was this combination of bowlers on show makes the events of that day quite inexplicable, especially as the batsmen were rarely trying to play the ball.As the sun began to go down, and as Lawry and Gleeson dug firmly in, the crowd around me became more and more angry. Boos were mixed in with choice Kannada and English abuses directed at the batsmen and the umpires. The genial gentlemen of the morning, who had been joking around and happily sharing lunches and drinks with one another, were now apoplectic with rage and frustration. I huddled a bit closer to my dad (who himself was quite calm and unruffled) and was baffled by the swing in the mood. Knowing as little about the intricacies of the game as the average nine-year-old, it was all confusing and scary.Lawry and Gleeson seemed to be in some sort of sensory-deprivation chamber as they shut out the crowd and dead-batted and dead-padded over after over. (The final scorecard shows that Australia ended with 90 runs for eight wickets off 52 overs. Lawry remained unbeaten on 10 after coming to bat at No. 6, which makes Sunil Gavaskars infamous 36 not out from 60 overs in the inaugural World Cup look like an absolute gallop.)And then the first projectiles came hurtling in from the crowd. Lawry immediately walked over to the umpire to complain, which, of course, triggered a further volley of projectiles. Soon after that, the batsmen, fielders and umpires walked off - to a hail of verbal abuse and sundry rubbish thrown onto the field. I dont know if the required number of overs had been bowled or if the match was called off prematurely. In either event, Lawry and Gleeson had held out for a draw, when, at one stage, it had looked as if defeat was inevitable for the Australians.We dispiritedly trooped out of the ground and made our way to the car park to return home. Everyone looked tired, angry, hot and sweaty. It was hard to believe that it was still the same day that had dawned so cool and been filled with joyous anticipation. A few days later Australia would win the final Test, at Chepauk, and depart with a 3-1 scoreline in the bag.Looking back, my initiation into international cricket featured a few themes that would become depressingly familiar over the decades. Indias bowlers could often run through the top order but find it difficult to finish the task. Our crowds were mercurial in the speed with which they shifted from cheerful gang to scary mob. And you could never, ever, count the Aussies out until you had scored that final run or taken that last wicket.
