RIO DE JANEIRO -- World-record holder Usain Bolt did not have nearly the fastest time in the preliminary rounds of the mens 200-meter dash, but that was partly because he slowed down so much near the finish line while leading his heat that he could have been pushing a grocery cart. Anthony Bennett Timberwolves Jersey . Plus, the heats were relatively early, starting around noon as opposed to the late-night finals.I was a little tired, but it was a morning session and Im not a very good morning person, Bolt said. I just came out to qualify.Not surprisingly, he did so, winning his heat with a time of 20.28.That was well off his world record of 19.19 as well as the days top time of 20.09 by Canadas Andre De Grasse. It also was the 15th-fastest time of the day.The heats are not about records, though, especially for those who are fast enough that they can be confident they will advance without running their absolute fastest race.Its not about time right now. Its about getting to the straightaway, holding your form and getting to the finish line, said Justin Gatlin, who advanced to the semifinal round with a time of 20.42. If you think about time, that will get into your head too much.The scheduling of the track events has been a little odd here. The turnaround between the 100-meter semifinals and final was not much more than hour, which both Bolt and Gatlin said caused them to have slower times than they had hoped. The triple-jump final was held in the morning Tuesday, starting at 10:50 a.m., which gold medalist Christian Taylor of the U.S. said he had never experienced before.It required early-morning starts for the Olympians.Its not just the run thats tiring -- its the transportation getting to and from the athletes village to here because of the traffic, Gatlin said. You cant stay up too late, but how could I not stay up to watch the womens 400 final last night? I had to make sure I watched that, and then got right back upstairs to go to bed.Bolt, who won his third consecutive gold in the 100 on Sunday, is the favorite in the 200, and he will try to win his third gold in the 200 as well. The semifinals of the 200 are Wednesday and the final is Thursday.American LaShawn Merritt, who won bronze in the 400 on Sunday, also qualified for the 200 semis with a time of 20.15 (the fourth-best of the day), as did American Ameer Webb with a time of 20.31. Gorgui Dieng Jersey . -- Edmontons Val Sweeting is two wins away from a trip to Winnipeg to play in Canadas Road of the Rings in December. Adreian Payne Jersey .

BALTIMORE -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter was asked Monday if he is beginning to think about a possible pitcher if Baltimore is involved in the American League wild-card playoff game. Cheap Swingman Pelicans Jerseys .Showalter said he and his staff talked about several things Monday, but that was not one of them.One change the Orioles did make with an eye toward the postseason had nothing do with the pitching rotation.The team originally planned to take a train back from New York after ending regular-season play on Oct. 2 against the Yankees.Showalter said the team now plans to fly back to Baltimore after that game -- though of course it could end up flying to another city for a possible wild-card game. Showalter said he mainly wanted to let players families know about the switch.For now the biggest game, for the Orioles comes at home Tuesday when they host the Boston Red Sox in the second game of a four-game series.Boston earned its fifth win in a row Monday with a 5-2 decision at Camden Yards. Rick Porcello went the distance for the third time this year and got his 21st win. The Orioles (82-68) fell four games back of the Red Sox (86-64) in the AL East.Thats a two-game swing, Boston manager John Farrell said of winning the series opener. Thats a good start.Showalter said of the Red Sox, They are really good. I am impressed with how they play. (Their record) is not by accident.The Red Sox improved to 20-9 against AL East opposition since July 1.We have to keep playing hard, Boston catcher Sandy Leon said.Baltimore slipped into a tie for the two AL wild-card spots with the Toronto Blue Jays (82-68). Both teams are 2 1/2 games up on the Detroit Tigers.The Orioles will send right-hander Kevin Gausman (8-10, 3.43 ERA) to the mound Tuesday against left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez, a former Orioles minor-leaguer. Rodriguez (2-7, 4.98 ERA) was dealt by Baltimore to the Red Sox at the trade deadline in 2014 for lefty reliever Andrew Miller, who is now with the Cleveland Indians.Gausman fired eight shutout innings against the Red Sox during a 1-0 win Wednesday at Fenway Park in his most recent start.In three starts against Boston this year, Gausman is 1-2 with a 5.82 ERA. For his career vs. the Red Sox, he is 3-3 with a 4.01 ERA in 13 games (eight starts).Rodriguez is 1/3 with a 4.30 ERA six all-time starts against Baltimore, 1-1 with a 4.40 ERA in three outings vs. the Orioles this year.Rodriguez will have plenty of backup thanks to Porcellos four-hitter.They have another day of rest, Farrell said of his bullpen.Rodriguez has been effective against two of the top Baltimore hitters.Left-handed hitting slugger Chris Davis is batting just .143 in 14 at-bats against the Boston pitcher. while Manny Machado is hitting .167 in 15 trips to the plate.Orioles center fielder Adam Jones is batting .308 in 13 at-bats against Rodriguez, while Matt Wieters is hitting .200 in 10 trips. Caleb Joseph, the backup catcher to Wieters, is 2-for-2 against Rodriguez.Gausman is 2-0 with a 1.35 ERA in his past three starts, while Rodriguez is 0-1, 3.31 in his previous three outings.David Ortiz is hitting .381 in 21 at-bats against Gausman, while Mookie Betts is hitting .353 in 17 at-bats. Both of them homered Monday.Other Red Sox with a track record against Gausman include Dustin Pedroia, who is batting .300 in 20 trips to the plate. Travis Shaw is hitting .273 in 11 at-bats against Gausman, while Chris Young is batting .286 in 14 trips against the Orioles right-hander.Theyve got some real depth to their batting order like a lot of teams do in the American League East, Showalter said of the Red Sox.Boston is doing more than just hitting.We are having fun. That is the main thing, Betts said. Every day is a new day. Slow up to the yard and play.Wholesale Pelicans Jerseys . 10 Texas A&Ms offence dominated as usual against SMU. Cheap Pelicans Jerseys China . -- Al Jefferson found a groove just in time for the Charlotte Bobcats. http://www.cheappelicansjerseys.com/ . After a replay, the winner will meet Sunderland in the quarterfinals. Sagbo did well to control Sone Alukos right cross and fire past Brighton goalkeeper Peter Brezovan. Aluko was making his first start in four months after recovering from an Achilles injury. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Hes had no home for most of his life. Yet in a cavernous, mostly-empty stadium in Brazil, a world away from where he came from, Yiech Pur Biel felt as if hed found one.Unseen and alone no more, the refugee runner heard the cheers washing over him.One of 10 members of the Olympic refugee team, Yiech took to the track for 800-meter qualifying Friday to write the latest chapter in a story that began on the dusty ground at the Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya, and led all the way to Rio de JaneiroWere refugees, said Yiech, who has had no country to call home since he was a child. Sometimes we feel that we are isolated from other people. But this chance gives us hope in our life.These Olympics have been infiltrated with nonstop news about poor preparation, dirty water and, of course, doping, much of which has its roots in the track meet that kicked off on Yiechs big day.As he strode through his two laps wearing his white jersey with the black letters ROT stitched on, he served up a much-needed reminder about what these sometimes overwrought, overpriced Summer Games are supposed to represent. He finished in 1 minute, 54.67 seconds, in seventh place in his heat, far behind the lead pack. And yet, it was his personal-best time, adding another exclamation point onto a day hell never forget.I heard about Rio since I was a young boy, Yiech said. But the Olympics? Now it is a real thing thats happening. Most of us dont know about the Olympics. Most of my life, I spent in camp. I dont have time to go and look at sport.The trip to Rio brought other firsts. Yiechs first trip on an airplane. Hiis first ride up an elevator. Cheap Pelicans Jerseys. . His first trip to anything nearly as magnificent as the Christ the Redeemer statue that overlooks the Olympic city.Yiech said the message of Jesus standing there, arms spread, represents more than a religious message. Its one of welcoming and tolerance -- the same sort of message hes trying to spread in his short time at the Olympics.The International Olympic Committee has been criticized for a lot in the lead-up to these Olympics. One decision not being second-guessed was the call to allow six men and four women from different parts of Africa and the Middle East to compete under the Olympic flag. The IOC called it a symbol of hope for the ever-growing number of migrants and refugees around the world.No argument from Yiech, who was 9 and living in southern Sudan when his mother, out of food, left him with a neighbor to go in search of something to eat. She never came back. Yiech was sent alone to the Kakuma camp, where around 200,000 people live.I say that the (United Nations) are my parents, Yiech said.Done with his race, he shook hands with David Rudisha, the world-record holder and defending Olympic champion. When it comes to running 800 meters, these two men seem far apart. That Yiech was able to run on the track with Rudisha for a day made anything seem possible.I told him, `This is the beginning of my journey. Although I dont have a good time now, one year, two years from now, Ill get that title from you, Yiech said. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Travis Shaw is hitting .273 in 11 at-bats against Gausman, while Chris Young is batting .286 in 14 trips against the Orioles right-hander.Theyve got some real depth to their batting order like a lot of teams do in the American League East, Showalter said of the Red Sox.Boston is doing more than just hitting.We are having fun. That is the main thing, Betts said. Every day is a new day. Slow up to the yard and play.Wholesale Pelicans Jerseys . 10 Texas A&Ms offence dominated as usual against SMU. Cheap Pelicans Jerseys China . -- Al Jefferson found a groove just in time for the Charlotte Bobcats. http://www.cheappelicansjerseys.com/ .

Aluko was making his first start in four months after recovering from an Achilles injury. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Hes had no home for most of his life. Yet in a cavernous, mostly-empty stadium in Brazil, a world away from where he came from, Yiech Pur Biel felt as if hed found one.Unseen and alone no more, the refugee runner heard the cheers washing over him.One of 10 members of the Olympic refugee team, Yiech took to the track for 800-meter qualifying Friday to write the latest chapter in a story that began on the dusty ground at the Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya, and led all the way to Rio de JaneiroWere refugees, said Yiech, who has had no country to call home since he was a child. Sometimes we feel that we are isolated from other people. But this chance gives us hope in our life.These Olympics have been infiltrated with nonstop news about poor preparation, dirty water and, of course, doping, much of which has its roots in the track meet that kicked off on Yiechs big day.As he strode through his two laps wearing his white jersey with the black letters ROT stitched on, he served up a much-needed reminder about what these sometimes overwrought, overpriced Summer Games are supposed to represent. He finished in 1 minute, 54.67 seconds, in seventh place in his heat, far behind the lead pack. And yet, it was his personal-best time, adding another exclamation point onto a day hell never forget.I heard about Rio since I was a young boy, Yiech said. But the Olympics? Now it is a real thing thats happening. Most of us dont know about the Olympics. Most of my life, I spent in camp. I dont have time to go and look at sport.The trip to Rio brought other firsts. Yiechs first trip on an airplane. Hiis first ride up an elevator. Cheap Pelicans Jerseys. . His first trip to anything nearly as magnificent as the Christ the Redeemer statue that overlooks the Olympic city.Yiech said the message of Jesus standing there, arms spread, represents more than a religious message. Its one of welcoming and tolerance -- the same sort of message hes trying to spread in his short time at the Olympics.The International Olympic Committee has been criticized for a lot in the lead-up to these Olympics. One decision not being second-guessed was the call to allow six men and four women from different parts of Africa and the Middle East to compete under the Olympic flag. The IOC called it a symbol of hope for the ever-growing number of migrants and refugees around the world.No argument from Yiech, who was 9 and living in southern Sudan when his mother, out of food, left him with a neighbor to go in search of something to eat. She never came back. Yiech was sent alone to the Kakuma camp, where around 200,000 people live.I say that the (United Nations) are my parents, Yiech said.Done with his race, he shook hands with David Rudisha, the world-record holder and defending Olympic champion. When it comes to running 800 meters, these two men seem far apart. That Yiech was able to run on the track with Rudisha for a day made anything seem possible.I told him, `This is the beginning of my journey. Although I dont have a good time now, one year, two years from now, Ill get that title from you, Yiech said. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
