WELLINGTON, New Zealand -- New Zealand shot putter Valerie Adams commands a place among the most elite companies in world athletics and yet has the misfortune of not even being the most famous athlete in her family. Cheap Patriots Jerseys China .Adams will attempt at the Rio de Janeiro Games to become the first woman to win the same individual track and field event at three consecutive Olympics.Already Adams is one of only nine track and field competitors to have won world championships in youth, junior and senior level, and the only woman to have won four consecutive world championships in the same event.And yet when she gets together with family, Adams accepts that among her 17 brothers and sisters -- the children of her father, Sid -- she is only the second best-known outside her native New Zealand.Her youngest brother, Steven, is center for the Oklahoma City Thunder who -- with his wild hair and lavish moustaches -- was one of the stars of last seasons NBA playoffs. Two other brothers have played professional basketball within New Zealand.Adams rise to her status as probably the best female shot putter in history, has not been without injuries, struggle and disappointment.All those obstacles Ive had to overcome have made me stronger, mentally, physically and emotionally, Adams told New Zealands Fairfax Media. A lot of athletes probably would have retired by now because it was a long stretch coming back, but I didnt want to go out like that.I knew I had at least one more left in me. I wanted to come back and retire on my own terms.While Adams first announced herself by winning the world youth title in 2001 at the age of 16 and further demonstrated her talent by winning the junior title the following year, she has negotiated a career path beset by obstacles and setbacks.Adams was fifth at her first world championships in 2003, when she was 18, and seventh at her first Olympics at Athens in 2004 when she competed only weeks after an appendectomy.The most significant early result of her senior career came in 2005 when she won a world championship bronze medal and had her first taste of competition with her contentious rival, Nadzeya Ostapchuk.That rivalry reached its pinnacle at the 2012 London Olympics when Adams, the defending champion, was beaten into second place by Ostapchuk.But the Belarussian subsequently tested positive for a banned steroid and Adams was promoted to first place, receiving her gold medal at a ceremony in Auckland several weeks later and denied a proper celebration at the games.In 2010, Adams split from long-time coach and friend Kirsten Hellier, an unpleasant epidsode in her career which also preceded a winning streak which lasted five years and 56 competitions.When Adams was finally beaten, at a Diamond League meeting in Paris in July 2015, it was because she was making a tentative return from a double injury which threatened to upset her bid to win her third Olympics gold medal.Adams had surgery to repair chronic damage to her right elbow and to remove a bone fragment from her right shoulder -- the most severe of many injuries in her career.She struggled on her return and it seemed her lengthy reign as the worlds best female shot putter was ending. But with typical tenacity Adams has rallied.She won Diamond League meetings in Morocco and Rome this year, was second in Birmingham then won again in Monaco in July, throwing more than 20 meters for the first time since 2014. That helped convince Adams that she is on track for the defense of her Olympics title.Adams will be without her coach Jean Pierre Egger, who injured his knee injury at Monaco, but said the bus continues on the Team Adams journey.After a difficult year with injuries, she feels the onset of her best form.We are getting back our mojo from a couple of years ago and thats something Ive missed a lot, Adams said. Its great to have the feeling Im able to dominate my training as opposed to it dominating me like it did last year. All these small things help with taking a positive outlook to the event coming up.I have goals I want to achieve. People have their expectations but the biggest expectations always come from within.

Ibaka equaled a career high with 20 rebounds, adding four blocked shots and 15 points as the Thunder smothered the Milwaukee Bucks offence in a 92-79 victory Saturday night. NEW YORK -- Charles Barkley didnt want Kevin Durant to join the Golden State Warriors and isnt sure Durant changes things now that hes there.In Barkleys mind, the Warriors are still a flawed team.Let me say this: I still think they got some of the same issues this year with that team, Barkley said Tuesday.Can they rebound the ball? Theyre going to still be shooting jumpers. Theyre not going to get any low-post scoring. Can that type of play hold up through the rigors of the NBA playoffs? Im still going to say the same thing Ive always said: No.The Warriors won a record 73 games in the regular season but blew a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals and lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Golden State then signed Durant, the former NBA MVP, in the offseason.Thats made the Warriors the favorites to regain the title they won in 2015, though Barkley said they were lucky then because their road was filled with teams weakened by injuries. Cleveland was already without Kevin Love in those Finals and lost Kyrie Irving near the end of Game 1.The Cavs were healthy last year, and Barkley picked them to beat the Warriors.When I told you they couldnt play that little small ball and win a championship if everybody they played was healthy, that theyd wear down, and they did. I told you Cleveland was going to beat them and they did, Barkley said during a lunch before TNTs Inside the NBA studio team was elected to the Broadcasting Hall of Fame. Authentic JaWhaun Bentley Jersey. Barkley and the team will host their show Tuesday night in Cleveland outside Quicken Loans Arena, where the Cavaliers will receive their rings before facing New York in their season opener. The Warriors will play San Antonio in the nightcap of TNTs doubleheader.Barkley, a Hall of Fame player who never won a championship, was disappointed that Durant left Oklahoma City for an easier chance at a title with the star-studded Warriors, who have two-time MVP Stephen Curry and fellow All-Stars Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.If they win, Barkley said, the title wont mean as much to Durant as it would have in Oklahoma City, where he had played since the Thunder franchise moved from Seattle in 2008 after his rookie season. Durant has been booed in rival arenas since his decision and has angered some of his former fans with what appeared to be criticisms of Russell Westbrook and his former team.Hes made himself a villain by taking all these shots at Oklahoma City for no reason. Theres no reason for that, Barkley said. He left, hes happy, shut up. When youre taking shots at Russell and those guys, thats not necessary.

Jim Harbaugh went on and on, as if his incessant whining would overturn the result of what was, in effect, a playoff game before the playoffs begin. Cheap Paul Molitor Jersey .Anyone who listened to Harbaugh in his last year in San Francisco would have easily recognized the tone. Its what he does when things go bad, and go bad they did Saturday in a thriller at Ohio State that took two overtimes to decide.The outburst cost Michigan $10,000 in the form of a fine Monday from the Big Ten, pocket change when the coach makes $7 million a year. What was far more costly to Michigan was blowing a 10-point fourth quarter lead in a game it dearly needed.Now Michigan waits on the outside, hoping against hope for a Hail Mary that will give the Wolverines one of the four prized spots in the College Football Playoff.The fact that its not totally impossible shows how little things have changed since the five big conferences that rule college football scrapped the Bowl Championship Series three seasons ago.Yes, the players get paid a little more, so date night may now include a movie as well as a pizza. And four teams now have a chance to prove their case on the field instead of the two anointed each year by the BCS.But its still subjective, with the final four teams and pairings decided behind closed doors in a conference room in Texas. The first two years of the new system were relatively easy, but that all figures to change this week in one of the oddest years in college football.The new rankings will be out Tuesday, and they will be read like tea leaves for an indication where the committee is going. But the real fun comes on Sunday, when the conference title games are over and the playoff teams are named.Former Secretary of State and committee member Condoleezza Rice may need all her diplomatic skills to pacify the schools left out.Right now, Michigan seems to be on the outside looking in, though that could change with losses by Washington and Clemson in their conference championship games. Actually, a lot of things could change if Washington or Clemson lose, though you have to figure Alabama is a playoff lock and Ohio State isnt far behind.What could keep committee members up all night Saturday, though, would be a win by Penn State over Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship game. There would be a lot of unhappy people in Happy Valley if the Nittany Lions won the conference championship and were left out of the playoffs.Theyd be even unhappier if Ohio State -- a team Penn State beat at home this year -- got in instead. Thats despite the fact the committee has already indicated it thinks Ohio State has a better resume than the team it lost to.That aside, its anyones guess what kind of thinking is going on behind those closed doors in Texas. Depending on the outcomes of the conference title games, there are various scenarios that could see Michigan, Wisconsin, Penn State or even Colorado find their way into the playoffs.Its entirely possible that winning a conference championship may not be enough, which should give pause to those who insist conference title games are more than just a chance to haul in millions more in television revenue.None of it is particularly clear. What is clear, though, is that the new way of crowning a national champion still falls short of a true playoff system.In too many ways it still feels like the BCS, where in some years it was difficult to figure out just what the criteria for getting in the title game was. That included the 2006-07 season, where Urban Meyer, then at Florida, famously lobbied to poll voters who helped jump the Gators over Michigan into the national championship contest.Meyer may want to do some more lobbying this week just to make sure his Buckeyes are in. Nothing is certain, though he and a lot of others cant fathom the committee leaving Ohio State out.I think were one of the top teams in the country, Meyer said after Ohio State escaped with an improbable win over Michigan.As for Harbaugh, he may be incapable of putting together a coherent case for his team. He spent almost all his post-game press conference complaining about the officiating , when he should have been talking about how a team that lost by a point at Iowa and in double overtime at Ohio State could still be one of the four best teams in the country.Not to worry, though. Leaving Michigan out of the playoff series will give him something to really whine about.----Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.

The Scot will take over from Novak Djokovic at the top of the rankings when they are published on Monday and he will hope to have an eighth title of the most impressive year of his career to go with it.After Djokovics quarter-final defeat on Friday, Murrays position was confirmed on Saturday when Milos Raonic withdrew from their semi-final, making him Britains first ever tennis world No 1 and ending the Serbs 122-week stranglehold at the head of the game. With the considerable side issue of the No 1 ranking now out of the way, Murray will concentrate on claiming the 14th Masters title of his career and a third of the season, having already claimed victory in Rome and Shanghai.Murray is into his fifth Masters final in succession this season and his 12th final of a memorable 2016. He will be a hot favourite against surprise finalist Isner, who beat Djokovics conqueror, Marin Cilic, in Saturdays first semi-final. Croft: Murray worthy of top spot Annabel Croft and Peter Fleming discuss Murrays rise Andy Murray took to the court for a knock-up after Milos Raonics withdrawal Murray has won all seven meetings between the pair, including a 6-1 6-3 quarter-final victory in Vienna last week, but he wont be underestimating the American, who overtook Ivo Karlovic for the most aces served on tour this year when he fired down 18 to take him to 1,141 for the season.He played a great match as I saw quite a bit of it after I finished practising, Murray told Sky Sports.He looked like he played very well, the court is very quick here and you look at the guys who have reached the latter stages - Tsonga, Cilic, Isner, Raonic - its a lot of the big servers. It seems to suit there game very well here, so I will need to play very well.Isner is into his third Masters final and, having started the week ranked 27th, his run in Paris has ensured he will end the season in the worlds top 20 and as the top-ranked American for the fifth year in succession.The 31-year-olds last 1000 Series final came in Cincinnati in 2013, where he was beaten 7-6 7-6 by Rafa Nadal, and his only other final at this level was Indian Wells in 2012, where Roger Federer got tthe better of him in straight sets.

I recently explained how regression to the mean helps explain why NFL players are unable to sustain high touchdown production. Authentic Sharks Jerseys .

LOUIS -- Valtteri Filppula assisted on three of Tampa Bays four goals, and the Lightning beat the St. CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- North Carolina is about to begin a stretch of games when it might be able to settle in.The Tar Heels start a three-game homestand with Sunday afternoons outing against Radford.No. 3 North Carolina has been tested in various ways during the seasons opening weeks, and all except one of those games has been away from home.I like that part, coach Roy Williams said of the variety of venues the team has visited. Weve been tested (without our) crowd getting us going.The Tar Heels played three true road games, though the last one resulted in the teams first loss on Wednesday night at Indiana.So now comes the flip side when theres an array of home games for the Tar Heels (7-1), who played eight November games for the first time in the history of the program. It has been more than two weeks since North Carolina competed in its only home game so far this season.Williams didnt enjoy his 1,000th game as a college head coach when Indiana won 76-67, but he suggested it wasnt wise to make much of a milestone game.Sundays game is going to be 1,001, he said. And Ill be happy to get to 1,001 and 1,002 and on like that.Until the most recent game, the Tar Heels pretty much had their way with things. All seven North Carolina victories have come by 15 or more points.But more important were the experiences gained during that stretch.You dont want to peak around this time because its just the start of the season, North Carolina guard Joel Berry said.For Radford (3-4), which has won two of its past three games, there have been some rough experiences, including an 0-3 road record.But Radford sophomore guard Caaleb Tanner is coming off a career-best 17-point outing in a 74-67 victory against Virginia Military Institute. San Jose Sharks Stanley Cup Jerseys. In that game, the Highlanders had their best offensive performance against a Division I team this season, shooting 50 percent from the field and producing their biggest point total in regulation.Without many offensive highlights this season, Radford coach Mike Jones said his team has learned the importance of doing other things to compensate for that.Being able to handle that the right way, Jones said. You cant count on shooting every game.Jones was more interested on how the Highlanders performed at the other end of the court in their most recent game.I thought our defensive effort over the course of the game was really good, he said.But dealing with North Carolinas offense probably means the Highlanders will have to rise to another level. The Tar Heels have shot better than 50 percent in nine of their 16 halves this season, while to aid their cause they rank second nationally in offensive rebounding percentage, retrieving 44 percent of their misses.The North Carolina offense is coming in various forms as four players have scored 20 or more points in a game this season, including Berry, who has done it four times.For Radford, only freshman forward Ed Polite Jr.s 21-point game against Stetson falls into that category.North Carolinas only meeting with Radford came to open the 2009 NCAA Tournament, with the Tar Heels winning in a 101-58 romp in Greensboro.

MASON, Mich. Cheap Eric Thames Jersey . -- A former USA Gymnastics team doctor has pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in Michigan involving a girl under 13.Three charges were filed Monday against Dr. Larry Nassar of Holt, Michigan, according to online court records in Ingham County. The alleged incidents occurred in 1998 and 2005, and Attorney General Bill Schuette said the girl wasnt a gymnast, patient or family member.Nassar, 53, was arrested Monday while running an errand. He was arraigned Tuesday by video from county jail. He was released after 10 percent of a $1 million bond was paid.The alleged assaults occurred between 1998 and 2005.Schuette said Nassar committed?predatory, menacing acts and stole this young ladys childhood. ... This is just the tip of the iceberg.University police chief James Dunlap said his department has received roughly 50 complaints.Were dealing with decades of effort to go back and identify witnesses and to compile those for submission to the attorney generals office, Dunlap said.Nassar has been under scrutiny this year after two gymnasts, including a member of the 2000 U.S. womens Olympic team, accused him of sexual abuse. A lawsuit by one is pending in California.A Los Angeles woman filed a civil lawsuit against Nassar on Tuesday, in Ingham County. Attorney Brian McKeen said his client was sexually assaulted in 1996 and 1997 during treatments for lower back pain when she was a 14-year-old gymnast in East Lansing.Blumer ordered Nassar to wear an electronic tether and to surrender his passport. He also was prohibited from being present with anyone under 18, including his children, unless another adult is there.A preliminary exam was scheduled for Dec. 15.Nassar, who could face life imprisonment if he is convicted, has denied wrongdoing. He was on the faculty at Michigan State University but was fired in September for not complying with employment requirements put in place after a 2014 investigation of alleged misconduct. MSU didnt elaborate.Indianapolis-based USA Gymnastics, which has been named in two civil lawsuits, said previously that that it cut ties with Nassar after learning of athlete concerns about him in the summer of 2015.USA Gymnastics today learned about the charges against Dr. Larry Nassar through a media report, it said. As we previously have made clear, when USA Gymnastics first learned of athlete concerns regarding Dr. Nassar, those concerns were reported to the FBI and Nassar was dismissed from further involvement with USA Gymnastics.Schuette said MSU asked his office to review allegations against Nassar, who taught at the school and worked in its sports medicine clinic.Nassar recently finished last in a three-candidate race for two seats on the Holt, Michigan, school board.The Associated Press contributed to this report.

RFL need to act over BettsBrian Carney says that the RFL cannot allow Denis Betts to get away with the comments he made about referee Joe Cobb. These comments follow a week on from Paul Andersons comments which have gone without any reported sanction. Tempers flared between Widnes and Wakefield at the Select Security Stadium on Friday night The Vikings looked set to end a five-match losing Super League streak when they recovered from an 8-0 interval deficit to lead 16-12 against Wakefield, but Craig Halls late try led to a bad tempered encounter which saw two players sent off and another three sin-binned.It was the worst refereeing performance Ive seen in 30 years, said Betts. We had a legitimate try from Chris Houston from a bomb disallowed near the end and there was nothing wrong with it.Carney said that Betts comments are not becoming of the newly appointed England assistant coach and feels that the pressure got to Betts. Widnes boss Denis Betts said Chris Houstons try should have stood in the Vikings defeat to Wakefield. Do you agree? Widnes are currently in the worst losing streak any club has had this year and he wasnt able to handle the pressure that brings on Friday night, explained Carney.He savaged a referee when perhaps the blame lies closer to home. Has he ever used comments like that in private to one of his players about their performance? I doubt it. Has he ever had one of his coaching performances described in such terms? I doubt it.The RFL can forget about claiming to protect referees if they dont eliminate that type of unfair, bullying and factually incorrect type of verbal assault on a referee. While it is most unlike Denis, who is normally circumspect in his analysis of a referee, it is yet another tedious example of blame for defeat being slung unfairly at the feet of officialsRising out of the ashes Jamie Jones-Buchanan analyses Leeds Rhinos defeat to Huddersfield at the touchscreen Set of Six are big fans of Jon Wells and his touchscreen interviews and his chat with Jamie Jones-Buchanan was another pearler.Leeds suffered another loss - 20-28 to Huddersfield - however Jones-Buchanan refused to be negative and says he is still loving the game.I am enjoying my rugby as much as I have ever done - sport in general is all about challenges and we are facing a challenge - whether it is top of the league or bottom of the league, it is all about enjoying yourself and playing the game that you love.The Leeds veteran also said that the future bodes well for Leeds and that the culture of the club will see them through the difficult times.We have got a great culture and a great set of lads - we have the next generation coming through.

ASHBURN, Va. Cheap Larry Bird Jersey . -- Running back Matt Jones is listed as questionable but expects to play for the Washington Redskins in their season opener Monday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.Jones is almost fully healed after separating his left shoulder Aug. 19 and is confident hell be 100 percent by game time. He has been a full participant in practice but was considered questionable because the NFL removed the probable distinction beginning this season.Im going to play, Jones said Friday. I dont feel like its like see how I hold up or (anything) like that. Just get hit, OK, Im going to get back up.Washington will rotate Jones, rookie Robert Kelley and third-down back Chris Thompson, but the second-year pro will shoulder the majority of the load. As Jones discussed his teammates getting plenty of carries, too, Kelley shook his head and pointed at him.Offensive coordinator Sean McVay said the team hopes Jones stays healthy through the game but has a plan to split the work. Jones will start, and thatll be the next test for him to tolerate the pain of getting hit.You like his toughness and I think he can play through a little soreness, which a lot of running backs do in the National Football League, coach Jay Gruden said. Its just a way of life. When you sign up to play running back in the National Football League, youre going to be a little sore, and he will be throughout the season and hes tough enough to deal with it.Jones conceded missing the final two preseason games to get his shoulder ready for when it matters. But after his rookie season ended with a hip injury, the 23-year-old didnt want to miss more games, especially now that he has replaced Alfred Morris as the feature back.So the Florida product took some contact at practice during the week and is mentally and physically ready for even more from the Steelers.Its just football, Jones said. Im going to just run my route, however I get it I just get it, and take it as far as like that. If I do feel it, Ive just got to fight through it.The Redskins have only three running backs on the roster, so they seemed confident that Jones wont be bothered by the sore shoulder in the coming weeks. But Kelley -- undrafted out of Tulane -- stood out so much during training camp and the preseason that hes not a bad fallback plan in case Jones is hurt.---AP Sports Writer Will Graves in Pittsburgh contributed to this report.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Robert Williams Jersey .

While hell be dialed in to that tournament on a course he loves, you can forgive him if his eyes glance down the calendar just a bit, towards April. VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Sven Baertschi is starting to get his groove back for the Vancouver Canucks.The Swiss forward scored with 2:35 left in regulation Tuesday night to cap a combined five-goal outburst in the third period, lifting the Canucks to a 5-4 win over the Minnesota Wild.Baertschi, who had a goal and two assists in his last outing before missing consecutive road games with a foot injury, tipped a point shot from Troy Stecher to cap the scoring on a night Vancouver fall behind 2-0 and also blow a 4-2 lead.They played well right away, but we stuck with it, Baertschi said. They got the two goals (in the third) which set us back a little bit, but consistency was key for us and it didnt really phase us.Baertschi has been looking for consistency this season after having 15 goals and 13 assists in 69 games in his first full NHL season last year.. He didnt score his first goal until the 14th game this year, but has played better in recent weeks alongside linemates Bo Horvat and the rejuvenated Alexandre Burrows.The chemistry is coming along and were starting to create more and more, said Baertschi, who has three goals and seven assists. Pucks are going in as of late. Thats a good sign.Brandon Sutter and Ben Hutton each had a goal and an assist, and Horvat and Loui Eriksson also scored for Vancouver, which has won consecutive games for the first time since starting the season 4-0. Henrik Sedin and Stecher had two assists each and Ryan Miller stopped 38 shots.Erik Haula scored the tying goal late in the third for Minnesota. Jason Pominville had two goals, Jason Zucker added a goal and an assist, and Nino Niederreiter had two assists. Darcy Kuemper got the start with Devan Dubnyk given the night off and finished with 30 saves.Tied 2-2 through two periods, Eriksson gave Vancouver its first lead 1:09 into the third with his sixth of the season when he finished off a scramble after the Wild failed to clear the puck from their zone.Horvat then tipped a shot past Kuemper for his team-leading eighth at 2:08 to give the Canucks a two-goal edge.Goals and tips, weird bounces, said Kuemper, who was making his fifth start. It was not a fun one.But the Wild struck right back when Zucker blocked Erik Gudbransons point shot and moved in alone on Miller before beating the Vancouver goalie with a nice backhand deke at 3:20 for his third.Kuemper then made a great stop on Eriksson off a feed from Markus Granlund just over a minute latter to keep the Wild within one.

Haula rewarded his goalie by scoring his third on a tip of Ryan Suters point shot with 5:49 left in regulation.Trailing 2-0 midway through the second with just 10 shots on the night, the Canucks came to life on back-to-back power plays to tie it. Sutter tipped Stechers blast from the point at 9:23 for his sixth before Hutton pinched down from the point on another man advantage just 1:59 later to roof a loose puck at the side of the net for his third.Huttons goal marked just the second time this season Vancouvers power play had connected twice in the same game, and the first since Oct. 22.I thought the power play was opportunistic, Canucks coach Willie Desjardins said. There are other nights weve had better power plays, but Stecher had a good point shot on one and Hutton did a good job coming down the backside.Already without Christopher Tanev, who has been out with a lower-body injury since early November, the Canucks were missing the other half of their top defensive pairing after it was revealed Monday that Alexander Edler required surgery on a broken finger suffered in Saturdays shootout victory in Colorado.With the youngest defense in the NHL as a result of Edlers injury, the Canucks knew they would have to play a simple, error-free game, but were instead exposed early in the first. Luca Sbisa, one of the veteran members of the current corps at age 26, misplayed a puck at the Vancouver blue line to allow Niederreiter to swoop in on Miller before Pominville was buried the rebound for his fourth into an open net at 5:07.The Canucks thought they had tied it with 5:18 left in the period when Henrik Sedin scored what looked to be his sixth, but the call on the ice was overturned after Minnesota challenged that Sutter had interfered with Kuemper.Pominville then made it 2-0 with his second of the game and fifth of the season on a shot off the rush at 3:24 of the second that beat Miller under the blocker.Game notes Edler is expected to be out four to six weeks. ... Henrik Sedin had two assists to give him 69 points (13 goals, 56 assists) in 81 career games against Minnesota. ...
