Great Britain could be handed two extra bronze medals from the Beijing Olympics in 2008 after 14 Russian athletes tested positive for doping. Chris Paul Swingman Jersey . It was revealed by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) last week that 31 athletes from 12 countries, competing in six different sports, could be banned from this years Olympics in Rio after 454 doping samples from Beijing were re-tested.The tests were focused on the doping samples of those athletes who are expected to go to Rio this summer.And the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) has been notified by the IOC that 14 of the 31 athletes are Russian. Russia to criminalise doping Russia aim to make doping a criminal offence by 2017 The ROC has not identified the 14 athletes but they have been named by Russian media and they include several medallists from Beijing. There are allegedly 11 track and field athletes, two weightlifters and one rower on the list.The athletes involved still have the chance to have their B samples tested, but if the positive tests are confirmed, and their results annulled, it could see Britains bronze medal tally from Beijing rise from 15 to 17.  Abakumova finished just ahead of Sayers in 2008 Maria Abakumova is allegedly one of the athletes involved after winning the silver medal in the womens javelin in China, an event in which Britains Goldie Sayers finished fourth and could now be promoted to third place.The British quartet of Andrew Steele, Robert Tobin, Michael Bingham and Martyn Rooney came fourth in the mens 4x400m relay and they could also be handed a bronze medal if allegations that Denis Alekseyev, who was a member of the bronze-medal winning Russian team, is involved prove to be correct and he is disqualified. Andrew Steele and 4x400m team-mates Robert Tobin, Michael Bingham and Martyn Rooney are in line for a Beijing bronze Tatiana Firova, who won a silver medal as part of Russias 4x400m relay squad, is another athlete allegedly under suspicion and Britains Christine Ohuruogu, Kelly Sotherton, Marilyn Okoro and Nicola Sanders could be upgraded to fourth from fifth place as a consequence.Sotherton, who won bronze in the heptathlon at the 2004 Athens Olympics, says if the medals are to be awarded to Britain it will be frustrating news for Britains performance director at the time, Dave Collins. This has touched not just athletes, but people within in the sport, she said.Our performance director in Beijing, Dave Collins, basically got sacked because he didnt reach his medal target, he only got four out of the predicted five. Kelly Sotherton has sympathised with Dave Collins after he was axed after Beijing If the other two do get medals, it would mean he should have got six and his target was five. Would he have been sacked then?Russia was suspended by the IAAF, athletics world governing body, in November after being accused of state-sponsored doping in a report commissioned by WADA.A decision on whether they will be reinstated for the Rio Olympics will be announced on June 17.

He is Australias most decorated basketballer, achieving almost everything during a celebrated 20-year playing career. Forrest Lamp Youth Jersey .On Thursday night, the great Andrew Gaze chalked up his first win as a rookie NBL coach after guiding the Sydney Kings to a pressure-relieving 88-84 win over the Illawarra Hawks in Wollongong.But the last thing the seven-time NBL MVP and five-time Olympian wanted was to hog the limelight after Sydneys round-two victory, especially with a Saturday night home clash with the Cairns Taipans to prepare for.Im more happy for the players, Gaze said of his maiden coaching triumph.As I keep telling these guys Im here to try and help them, and I get excited with their joy and excitement because I know what theyve been through as players.My relief is that these guys care. They care about the game, they care about winning, they care about the opportunity they have, so I feel the pressure that they go through and I was more relieved that we broke our duck and got a win in a very, very tough environment.Ive had more than my fair share of unbelievable times and now Ive got this opportunity to share in some more in a different capacity.Whatever this journey of mine is, I just want the players to enjoy the experience, to be able to enjoy the wins and deal with the losses.Losses have piled up for Sydney in recent years and thats a trend Gaze hopes to reverse.The club cleared out half of last seasons playing roster and recruited some big names to fill the vacancies.Eyebrows were raised when the Kings lost last weeks season-opening home game to the Brisbane Bullets, but the hard-earned road win over a formidable foe like Illawarra underlined the Kings potential.Pleased as he was to see his side register its first win, Gaze had already shifted his attention to the Taipans, who lost in overtime to titleholders Perth last week.Its a very limited time to recover and we dont have a lot of time to prepare, he said.We have a video session [on Friday] and a walk-through session on game day, but it is what it is.All teams have to do it. Im not crying and saying weve been harshly done by, but it does make it tough. Forrest Lamp Chargers Jersey . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless."

NEW YORK -- Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers was fined $15,000 by the NBA on Thursday for verbally abusing a game official and failing to leave the court in a timely manner after his ejection.The incident happened with 18.6 seconds remaining in the first overtime of the Clippers 127-122 double-overtime loss at Brooklyn on Tuesday night.?Rivers was given a technical foul for crossing over midcourt, then another and ejected.Obviously, I should have gotten fined, just from the actions afterwards, Rivers said before Thursday nights game at Cleveland. I had no problem with that at all. Im good with it. I never read why they fined me. Im completely in the dark. I just knew I got fined.They called me and said 15 [thousand] and before they said anything else, I said, Hey, thank you, no problem, Rivers added. I honestly dont even know what they actually said. Im good with it. I thought I needed to sshow something in that instance, probably not as much, but its over with and weve got to get back to ball, playing good basketball would be nice.

But referee Ken Mauer, who was standing on the Clippers side of the court, called what Rivers said was an awful tech.Information from The Associated Press and ESPNs Dave McMenamin was used in this report.

ORCHARD PARK, N. Alex Muyl Jersey .Y. -- Rex Ryan hasnt jumped out of any airplanes this offseason. And the Buffalo Bills coach hasnt munched on dog biscuits, or issued any bold proclamations of building a bully.That was last year.It was a season which began with hype-driven, sky-high expectations following Ryans hiring, and ended with an enormous thud following an 8-8 finish and his reputation as one of the NFLs top defensive minds questioned.If the experience had a sobering effect, Ryan wouldnt acknowledge it: Nah, not a chance, he said.Even though hes reined in his larger-than-life personality, Ryan remains defiant, perhaps even more than ever.What stings is not the criticism he attracted for how his pride-and-joy defense unraveled because of on-field miscommunication and players openly questioning his approach. What gnaws at his core, Ryan told The Associated Press this week, is realizing for the first time in 11 years as an NFL coach or coordinator he wasnt true to himself.Nope, not even close. And it hurt, Ryan said, noting he made the mistake of attempting to twin his philosophy with the Jim Schwartz-coached scheme the Bills high-priced defense thrived under the previous season.I wish I had to do it all over again, but the fact of the matter is we dont, he said. But this years a brand new one. And like Ive said, I have a funny feeling well be a lot better.Theres actually nothing funny about it. Ryan has put aside his colorful antics and directed his attention to what happens on the field.Its evident in the changes Ryan made to his defensive staff, with the most notable offseason addition being his twin brother Rob, who was hired as assistant head coach.And its evident in the offseason roster moves the Bills have made to better suit Ryans aggressive 3-4 philosophy that relies on keeping opponents guessing.Sent out the door was high-priced defensive end Mario Williams, Ryans most vocal locker room critic. Most of the newcomers -- players Ryan can groom -- arrived with Buffalos top-three draft picks in linebackers Shaq Lawson and Reggie Ragland, and defensive tackle Adolphus Washington.It makes little difference to Ryan that Lawson will miss at least the first six weeks of the season recovering from shoulder surgery, or that Ragland sustained a season-ending knee injury in training camp. Ryan insists the defense will be better after finishing 19th in the NFL in yards allowed.I own whatevers there, but I also own the other years that Ive coached in this league, which everybody seems to forget, Ryan said, referring to his track record of overseeing six defenses that have finished fifth overall or better.Some of the greatest defenses in the history of this game have the Ryan name on it, he said, including his brother Rob and father, Buddy. So guess what? Its back to Ryan defense.The challenge is personal because the task of maintaining the Ryan legacy now falls on him after his father and mentor died in June.Its like anybody who loses your father or something like that youre close to. Obviously, its going to have an effect on you, Ryan said. But for me, it even drives me more if thats possible.Bills players see few changes in Ryans approach. And yet, they believe Ryan was betrayed by the criticism stemming from his players.I dont think there was any doubt, defensive tackle Kyle Williams said. Some of the things said shouldve been said not to (the media). They shouldve been kept between players and coaches.As a result of the bickering, guard Richie Incognito said a group of leaders has emerged to reduce distractions and have players speak with one voice.We had some people kind of pulling in the opposite direction, and as people in this locker room and as coaches we didnt know how to handle it, Incognito said. I think what youre seeing here is the growing of a very strong. veteran presence.Ryan said the blame for everything that went wrong falls solely on him.Ive got broad shoulders, I can take it, he said. I can take most every damn hit known to man.His voice began to rise in detailing past challenges hes overcome, including earning a masters degree despite being dyslexic.Its easy to be a (chicken) and dont say anything, and then maybe after the fact you can boast, Ryan said, using a profanity for emphasis. But to me, I guess I grew up saying, `You know what, Im going to be great. And Ill dare to say it. And Ill dare to do it.That part hasnt changed about Rex Ryan.---AP NFL website: and Connor Lade Red Bulls Jersey .

Justin Bilyeu Red Bulls Jersey . -- Whether Jeremy Hill deserves a prominent role in LSUs offence this early in the season is a matter for debate. . -- PGA TOUR Canada member Steve Saunders took a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Web. Harlequins produced a strong second half performance to see off Worcester 36-14 and continue their impressive home form.It was a fifth home win in succession for Quins - a stark contrast to their poor away form which has seen them lose all four matches on the road.It was 7-7 at half-time with Worcester making too many basic errors to reward their first half superiority before the second half saw Quins step up a gear to collect a bonus point win.Joe Marchant, Danny Care, Mike Brown, Tim Visser and James Horwill scored their tries with Nick Evans kicking a penalty and three conversions. Tim Swiel added another conversion.An impressive Ben Teo spearheaded Worcesters performance and, along with his fellow centre Jackson Willison, they scored Warriors tries with Jamie Shillcock adding two conversions. Worcester dominated the opening minutes but it was the hosts, who took the lead against the run of play.From a position in the home 22, Visser intercepted a Dean Hammond pass to race away. The wing was chased down by Shillcock but Care was up in support to take Vissers pass to score. Evans converted before Shillcock had a chance to put his side on the scoreboard but his straight forward penalty attempt went wide.However Warriors soon overcame the miss to draw level after 10 minutes when from a line-out in the opposition 22, Teo brushed aside a poor tackle from Luke Wallace to create a try for Willison.After the exciting opening period, the game became error-ridden and disjointed but when Joe Marler was sin-binned for collapsing a maul, the visitors had their chance to capitalise.Ryan Lamb kicked tthe penalty to the corner to secure a five metre line-out but Warriors gave away their first penalty of the game by a careless off-side to allow Quins to relieve the pressure. Sacha Kljestan Jersey. . In Marlers absence, Worcester never threatened the home sides try-line and the score remained 7-7 at the interval.Warriors were made to pay when Quins produced their best movement of the match to score their second try within five minutes of the restart. Strong runs from James Chisholm and Winston Stanley put the visitors defence on the back foot before Cares pass sent Horwill crashing over.Four minutes later, Quins scored their third try when Brown skipped past a couple of defenders for an excellent solo try with Evans converting to leave Warriors with a mountain to climb.To their credit, they responded immediately when a well-judged pass from Ryan Lamb created a gap for Willison, who raced through it to create a try for Teo.Worcester had another chance when on half-way, a Stanley pass was picked off by Phil Dowson but the veteran number 8 lacked the pace to make it to the line.With 17 minutes remaining, Warriors collapsed a driving maul and Evans stepped up to kick the first successful penalty of the game before, from the restart, Marchant intercepted a Lamb pass to run 70 metres to score.That try sealed the game for Quins, who introduced Mark Lambert for the prop to record his 200th game for the club before Visser crashed over to finish off the final movement of the match.

Jordan Lynch, the all-purpose Heisman Trophy finalist from Northern Illinois, failed to make it into that exclusive club. ARLINGTON, Texas -- Elvis Andrus and the Texas Rangers always believe theyre going to win. Now theyre getting ever closer to another AL West title.Andrus scored the winning run on All-Star center fielder Ian Desmonds RBI single with no outs in the ninth inning as the Rangers beat the last-place Los Angeles Angels 3-2 on Monday night for their MLB-best 46th come-from-behind victory.That has been our DNA this year. We didnt give up until the last out, until the last pitch, and its contagious, said Andrus, who also had a tying solo homer in the seventh.Andrus led off the ninth with a sharp single to left off Jose Alvarez (1-3) before Carlos Gomez turned an attempted sacrifice into a bunt single. Desmonds single gave the Rangers (89-62) their 20th last at-bat victory and they improved to 35-10 in one-run games.Nomar Mazara also homered for the Rangers, whose magic number is three to win their second consecutive division title. After Seattle lost and Houston won later Monday, the Mariners and Astros were tied for second place, 9 1/2 games behind Texas in the AL West.Play it straight, just trying to play the same way weve been playing all year, Desmond said about being close to clinching. Its been working. No need to change it now.Closer Sam Dyson (3-2) worked a scoreless ninth for the victory after starter Martin Perez went seven innings and Matt Bush worked a perfect eighth.Alvarez, the sixth Angels pitcher, had gotten out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth following a 38-minute rain delay, two innings after Rangers manager Jeff Banister was ejected for arguing when a replay challenge overturned an out and led to an Angels run.Yunel Escobar was thrown out by several feet trying to stretch his hit into a triple in the sixth, then motioned toward the outfield. Manager Mike Scioscia challenged the ball had become lodged underneath the padding on the wall in right-center field and should have been ruled dead, as per the ground rules for the Rangers ballpark.We thought that someone put their hands up like it was out of play. I think thats what (Escobar) saw, Scioscia said. He kind of stutter-stepped and slowed down.Banister was ejected when he came out to get an explanation and kept questioning crew chief and second base umpire Joe West after Escobar was put at second base. The replay showed right fielder Mazara played the ball and never indicated it was wedged under the padding.From the infield you cant tell if its stuck. ... But when we went to replay, they ssaid it stuck. Chad Williams Cardinas Jersey. So its plain and simple a ground-rule double, West told a pool reporter after the game.I had an outfielder who felt like the ball was not lodged. If you look at the video, the ball was still spinning, Banister said. In my estimation, that is not a lodged baseball. But thats not my call.Mike Trout followed with a triple into the right-field corner to tie the game 1-1. The Angels then went ahead in the seventh when Jefry Marte was hit by a pitch and scored on a two-out double by Carlos Perez.Texas got even on Andrus sixth homer, a two-out solo shot in the seventh that just cleared the 8-foot wall in center.ANOTHER EJECTIONRangers 1B Mitch Moreland was ejected after taking a called third strike to end the fourth inning, on a pitch that appeared to be well outside. While he had some words with home plate umpire Kerwin Danley as he walked back to the dugout, there were no demonstrative actions by Moreland before his first ejection in his 764 career games.SHORT HOPSRangers 3B Adrian Beltre had two hits, giving him 2,931 for his career. He passed Rogers Hornsby for 37th on the career list, and is one behind Willie Keeler. ... Mazaras 19 homers are the most by a Rangers rookie since 2003.RANGERS ROTATIONDerek Holland will pitch Wednesday for the Rangers, and Cole Hamels and Yu Darvish will both get extra rest before pitching this weekend in Oakland after an off day Thursday.

Chacin allowed one run over five innings while throwing 91 pitches, 29 after getting hit.Rangers: Andrus was struck directly on his right (throwing) elbow by Chacins pickoff attempt when diving back into second while a baserunner in the third inning.UP NEXTAngels: Rookie right-hander Daniel Wright (0-3, 7.04 ERA) is still seeking his first MLB victory. He made his MLB debut with Cincinnati earlier this season.Rangers: Texas has won seven of the last 10 games started by A.J. Griffin (7-4, 4.78 ERA).

I worked very hard for the footy club and what I can hang my on is that that everything I did for the club to win its next premiership.

He also said that the WICB had notified all the ICC Full Member boards of this decision.The WICB will levy a charge for the granting of an NOC for West Indian cricketers seeking a release to participate in Leagues outside the jurisdiction of the West Indies, Muirhead informed Pollard in the email, which has been accessed by ESPNcricinfo. This will be an amount equivalent to 20% of the player fee (as defined in the player contract) that is actually paid to the relevant player.Pollard was told he would not be granted the NOC until the WICB had received acceptance of our position from the various boards which feature Caribbean players in their domestic T20 tournaments.It is understood that the Bangladesh Cricket Board is considering a 10% payment, but might ask the BPL franchises to carry out such a payment. Cricket South Africa has rejected the WICB proposal while there has been no response as yet from the Pakistan Cricket Board and Cricket Australia.The Federation of International Players Association (FICA) has described the WICB decision as restraint of trade and warned that it could attract legal challenges.Muirhead argued that a release fee was necessary given how many Caribbean players are now seeking to maximise their earnings in the various T20 tournaments around the world.WICB however, having invested in developing a players talent, is not able to realise a return on its investment if the player is not available to play in local tournament, which would allow lesser experienced players the opportunity to face a more experienced and skilled opposition, thereby improving on the standard and competitiveness of the domestic tournaments, he wrote.However, the move comes as little surprise to seasoned observers of the current WICB administration. The board has consistently said that senior players who earn big money in the T20 leagues need to compromise and give back something to the regional cricket. Otherwise, as Muirhead noted to Pollard, it disadvantages the West Indies team.In the end, it compromises the standard of the WICBs international team and that teams performance internationally. The primacy of international cricket is threatened.Muirhead stated in his email that the WICB move could not be called as restraint of trade. While we do not wish to act in restraint of trade, we must seek a balance to ensure that there is fair and adequate compensation for the investment made in the players, he wrote. What WICB seeks is some compensation to recognise the investment made into players, an investment from which another Full Member is benefitting.Although Pollard is the only player officially contacted by WICB so far, many other Caribbean players are predicting a similar email in their inbox at some point in the near future.Muirhead said the board could put the fees collected for an NOC from various players into a pot which then could be redistributed as contracts to players who only play T20. Pollard, along with the former West Indies captain Darren Sammy, are some of the prominent voices who have asked WICB to offer them T20 contracts.It is our expectation too, that the accumulation of these fees will facilitate the offer of contracts to players participating only in the short format of the game, Muirhead said.Pollard, however, is not even a contracted WICB player, having been controversially dropped for the tri-series in Zimbabwe, scheduled for later this month. And for that reason, Tony Irish, the FICA chairman, believes that the move is unjustified.We have made it very clear to all the boards that any restrictions placed on players are likely to constitute restraint of trade and there challengeable legally, he said. In the case of Kieron, he is not even contracted by the WICB. Therefore their attempt to levy 20% in exchange for the NOC effectively imposes a restriction on freedom of movement.Irish called the decision arbitrary, considering the WICB had not even discussed the move with players and the other boards. He added that he will be speaking directly to the WICB on Tuesday about a decision that looks set to prevent Pollard from fulfilling his second year of the contract with the Cobras.It is not a good situation. I will be taking it directly as a FICA issue with the WICB and making them aware of the implications.Insignia Sports, who manage Pollard along with other leading West Indies players including Sammy, Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo, has also said it will be challenging the WICB move.It is a blatant restraint of trade on a player who has not been selected by WICB for the upcoming tri-series, does not have a contractual tie to the WICB permitting such a restriction, said Eddie Tolchard, one of the partners at Insignia Sports. Applying an unreasonable and unjustifiable fee and requesting CSA pay it in order to provide a NOC is a restraint of trade.Additional reporting by Nagraj Gollapudi Jarrad Davis Youth Jersey .

DORTMUND, Germany -- Borussia Dortmund says it has signed attacking midfielder Andre Schuerrle from Bundesliga rival Wolfsburg.

The roster that the U.S. womens national team takes to the Olympics is that of a program with one eye on its present and one eye on its future.Which makes it anatomically impossible to keep an eye on the past.All things considered, that makes for a nice change.The national team for years went to major tournaments with one eye glued to the past, either attempting to recapture the magic of 1999 by winning another World Cup or, just as often, trying to lessen the sting of another World Cup disappointment through Olympic consolation.Those efforts had their moments, to be sure, but it was a formula for frustration.Win today to escape yesterdays shadow.Then they won. They stood and celebrated their 2015 World Cup triumph on a podium inside Vancouvers BC Place after a soul-cleansing, flag-waving romp of a final. And people started thinking about tomorrow. Not as a short-term salve but as a long-term opportunity. People including U.S. coach Jill Ellis.If we are about winning world championships, we cant just have all of our focus be on the Olympics, Ellis said Tuesday in recounting a conversation with U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati after the World Cup. It has to be on looking at new players, looking at players to build for beyond. And he agreed. We still want to win a gold medal. We still want to be competitive this summer. Thats still a high, high priority. I think we can do that, but we can also start to build players for the future.Make no mistake, the roster she announced Tuesday is one selected to compete for gold in Brazil, to try to become the first team to win the World Cup and Olympics in back-to-back years. No one is asking Carli Lloyd to lead a developmental roster. It is why Megan Rapinoe is there just seven months after the midfielder suffered a torn ACL, and despite the fact that she hasnt played for club or country yet this year. Even if Rapinoe is able to play only a reserve role, either in the tournaments early stages or throughout any run, those minutes are worth the roster spot for the added value on set pieces and crosses alone.Nor is it just loyalty to the holdovers that puts a premium on the present. A rookie in a major tournament at 28 years old, Allie Long might still be a viable option in 2019 or 2020, but she is here because of what she offers the team right now. Given their roles, it appears that Long and Samantha Mewis were competing for one roster spot. Mewis has more future ahead of her. Long is more reliable at this moment. Pragmatism won that contest (while simultaneously providing one of the teams most compelling stories in Longs lengthy journey to this stage). The same goes for Whitney Engen, who apparently edged out NWSL No. 1 pick Emily Sonnett as a back-line reserve.But after being the oldest team in the World Cup a year ago, the United States could at some point put a starting lineup on the field in Brazil that includes Morgan Brian, Crystal Dunn, Lindsey Horan, Julie Johnston and Mallory Pugh. All of them will still be in their 20s when the 2019 World Cup in France rolls around. All of them will still be in their 20s during the 2020 Olympics in Japan.So will Mewis and Sonnett. So willl players such as Jaelene Hinkle, Danielle Colaprico, Rose Lavelle and teenager Ashley Sanchez, all of whom spent varying amounts of time with the national team during the buildup to the Olympics. DeShone Kizer Youth Jersey. That wasnt possible when Ellis took over a veteran player pool with far less than a full preparation cycle left in advance of the World Cup.I wasnt going to be able to get experience enough for younger players to come in, Ellis said of the World Cup. I had a very good handle on the players that were in the group. And so I felt very comfortable in terms of this is how were going to play and this is what we need. Preparing for a World Cup, I dont think I was looking beyond what we had already in.Veterans like Shannon Boxx and Lori Chalupny, both since retired, fit that roster. Recent high school graduate Pugh fits this one.It isnt just about the personnel. Thats only part of the picture. Ellis was almost giddy after a 1-0 win against France earlier this year, a game that looked headed for a scoreless draw until Alex Morgan scored in second-half stoppage time. It wasnt the result that pleased the coach but the way the team asserted itself on the game. The U.S. was the more technically precise team, bettering France at its own game. That wasnt a universally held view, notably getting some measure of disagreement at the time from an oft-isolated-on-the-night Lloyd.This style suits the likes of Brian and Horan, a new generation of gifted technicians. It suits Becky Sauerbrunn and Julie Johnston, center backs able to play out. It is surely part of the reason Kelley OHara, with all her versatility, has claimed the starting job at right back.Right or wrong, successfully implemented or not, this style tries to balance the traditional American strengths of athleticism and fitness with technical precision and pace of play. It is a style of play for tomorrow.At times Ive seen us play through lines -- we want to be a balance, Ellis said. If we can get in behind with one pass, we want to do that because its on. And thats any team in the world, if a team is going to give you that. But then we also need to be able to problem-solve, and I think thats where weve gotten better in terms of just being able to play off of each other, have more versatility. We talk about a variety of ways to get into the goal zone.Ellis laughed out loud at one point during a conference call to discuss the roster, asked about having the freedom of more job security after winning the World Cup. The adrenaline of a profession in which that doesnt exist, she said, is part of the allure of coaching.But the roster she put together, for all its core familiarity, is one freed from the weight of the past. It is for today and tomorrow.Thats the exciting part when youve got a younger group, Ellis said, is you can plan beyond three months.Ellis and this roster will be judged on what they do in Brazil. Thats the nature of being No. 1.But what they do in Brazil will also be the foundation of the roster that we will judge in 2019 and 2020.
