Stoneman will be Alastair Cook’s jersey 15th England opening
Posted On 08/15/2017 20:07:46


Mark Stoneman feels his Test debut against West Indies under lights this Thursday is justification for his winter move from Durham to Surrey as he Willie Mays prepares to become the latest batsman to try to crack the puzzle that is being Alastair Cook’s opening partner.At 30 years of age Stoneman will become the oldest specialist batsman to be handed a first England cap this century, and the hope from the selectors now is that this seasoned left-hander’s additional experience comes off in the three-match Investec series and ends the seemingly perpetual search to fill the gap left by the retirement of Andrew Strauss in 2012. Stoneman will be Cook’s 15th partner since his debut, 12th since Strauss retired and, though Stoneman missed out on a top-order spot twice this summer when first Gary Ballance and then Tom Westley got the nod at No3, he always retained the hope that his surge in county runs since trading the north-east for south London would eventually force a way in.Stoneman had already signed for Surrey before Durham’s financially enforced relegation last October, – the die was probably cast when Michael di Venuto, his former team-mate and long-time idol, became head coach http://www.officialmlbgiantshop.com/authentic-24-willie-mays-jersey.html at the Oval in early 2016 – but cricketers have not needed to leave the Riverside to get international recognition in recent times given the opener he has replaced, Keaton Jennings, was the club’s 10th academy player to be capped.Nevertheless the fresh surroundings, a reunion with Di Venuto and less off-field noise at a more settled club appear to have been beneficial for someone described as an


For all their experience jersey of hosting floodlit matches
Posted On 08/15/2017 19:55:37


The first of many questions that executives at Edgbaston had to ask as they commenced preparations for England’s first ever day-night Test was: what Authentic Curtis Joseph Youth Jersey do you call the breaks? Standard, daytime Tests have their lunch break at, well, lunchtime, and their tea break at, give or take, tea time. A 2pm start distorts the timetable and, while 4pm can be referred to in many ways, if you are calling it lunchtime something has gone badly wrong with your day.In Adelaide, where Australia played day-night Test matches against New Zealand in 2015 and South Africa the following year, and where England will appear in another this December, the breaks were switched, with the first becoming shorter and known as tea, and the second – coming, as it does, at approximately dinnertime – stretching longer and renamed dinner. “We decided in discussions with the ECB not to do that, because we think that would be more confusing,” says Neil Snowball, Warwickshire’s chief executive and veteran of both 2012 Olympic and 2015 Rugby World Cup organising committees. “We’ll be starting at 2pm, have the first two-hour session and our main interval will be the first interval, which we’ll call ‘lunch’, even though it’s at 4 o’clock, then we’ll have the second break between 6.40pm and 7pm which again we’ll call ‘tea’. It’s just to avoid confusion. We don’t know if this is going to be the first of many or whether it’s a one-off but we thought it was easier to explain.”For all their experience of hosting floodlit matches, preparing for England’s first day-night Test has been nowhere near as straightforward as it might have been to put on five http://www.authenticredwingstore.com/danny-dekeyser-jersey_c-475.html successive day-night ODIs. Snowball, as part of his preparations, has been in regular contact with Keith Bradshaw, the former chief executive of MCC who now holds the same position at the South Australian Cricket Association and has been involved in all the Adelaide matches. In March Snowball and Gary Barwell, Warwickshire’s head groundsman, were in Abu Dhabi to see the Champion County match played, as this week’s Test will be, with a pink Dukes ball. “One of the things we learned out there was not to try to be too clever with the actual pitch,” says Snowball. “There have been various debates about whether you leave a bit more on, whether you take a bit more off, but


Though temperatures jersey are forecast to be in the teens

Stuart Broad has described England’s maiden day-night Test match this week as a “step into the unknown” and one that could prove an early leveller against Authentic Arrelious Benn Womens Jersey a West Indies side they are otherwise expected to make light work of in preparation for the Ashes.Steel bands and a fake beach are just two of a number of Caribbean add-ons set to be in place at Edgbaston from 2pm on Thursday as, with a pink Dukes ball in hand and under floodlights in the evening session, the two teams get their three-match Investec series under way and Joe Root’s side look to continue their form from the 3-1 win over South Africa. Though temperatures are forecast to be in the teens come the evenings and Jason Holder’s ninth-ranked tourists are not the draw card of yesteryear, what is primarily an England tune-up for their day-night Ashes Test in Adelaide this November appears to have caught the imagination in Birmingham, where 70,000 tickets have been sold for the first three days.It will be just the fifth Test of the floodlit era but also a second for West Indies. For all their relative inexperience, with a squad boasting 240 caps to England’s 575, they have at least sampled the format before in a seven-wicket defeat by Pakistan in Dubai last April. Thus Broad, having missed this summer’s floodlit county round http://www.jaguarsofficialshop.com/authentic-audie-cole-jersey.html through injury, remains wary. “I promise you, we are stepping into the unknown,” said the 31-year-old seamer, who was getting to grips with the fuchsia pink Dukes ball as England practised under the beaming floodlights here on Monday evening between rain showers.“I just don’t know what to expect. This is a big series for us and this is the first Test – it’s quite nerve-racking. You’re playing something that is completely unknown to you but you still have to Men's Reebok St. Louis Blues #44 Chris Pronger Authentic Blue 2017 Winter Classic NHL Jersey stamp your authority on the series. It think it really opens up this series to start with.” England’s practice under lights featured Mark Stoneman, the former Durham opener now at Surrey, first in the nets before his Test debut while Hampshire’s similarly uncapped Mason Crane was sending down his leg-breaks to Root in the second lane along with Jack Leach and Dom Bess. These two Somerset spinners are not in the squad but clearly on the selection radar. Chris Woakes was another striving to prove himself after two months out with a side injury and, as the lights fully took over towards the end of the session, the flash of pink against the baize green outfield of his Brent Celek Authentic Jersey home ground made the Test seem a mouth-watering prospect.Broad, who expects the two captains to be tempted by declarations before this anecdotally “tricky” twilight period, had a relatively quiet time against South Africa, claiming 11 wickets at 32 apiece although his final new-ball spell with Jimmy Anderson at Old Trafford was typically high-class fare from a pair that have now shared 720 wickets in 94 Tests playing together. As a seam-bowling duo, only the former West Indies quicks, Curtly Ambrose and Courtney Walsh, have more with 757 from their 95 Tests in tandem. How long the Anderson-Broad axis remains at Root’s disposal will hinge on the former, who at 35 should in theory be slowing down but has 20 victims at 14 already this summer.Certainly Broad sees his close friend ploughing on for some time yet, describing his fitness as “freakish” despite some injury niggles in the past 12 months. There was a concession that rotation may yet become more common, even if their dual resting against West Indies at Edgbaston in 2012 is something he still bristles about. “I had some interesting conversations with [the then head coach] Andy Flower. I don’t like missing Test matches,” said Broad, who added that, with two months between the final Test at Lord’s and the first Ashes Test in Brisbane on 23 November, it was unlikely to occur this summer. “Jimmy has a huge hunger for cricket and I want him to carry on as long as possible. The Ashes this winter means so much to me personally and I don’t want to look too much further beyond that but, you know, if we start with him at the Gabba, we’ve certainly got a better chance in Australia.” While Australia may be in sight, England appear in no rush to find their replacement http://www.nfleaglesofficial.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_BRENT_CELEK_JERSEY.html for the departing Ottis Gibson, with the bowling coach part of practice and set to remain in place for the series as talks continue over his expected appointment as head coach of South Africa.One idea floated, albeit originally in jest when the dressing room learned of Gibson’s mooted departure, is that Anderson could assume the role in a player-coach capacity, perhaps with a view to going full-time when he hangs up his bowling boots. Broad was doubtful if it could work, however, saying: “Jimmy is almost a bit of a bowling coach round the groupanyway. [But] I would prefer him to be taking the new ball at the Gabba fully focused on that. You need someone to bounce ideas off – a coach not playing in the Test when you need to do some technical work.” On Gibson, alongside whom Broad began his career at Leicestershire in 2005, he added: “Ottis has been a huge influence on my career, not just as a bowler but as a person. He knows my action better than I do, to be brutally honest. I would be gutted to see him leave.”


Liverpool visit the Rhein-Neckar-Arena jersey on Tuesday without
Posted On 08/14/2017 23:26:52


Jürgen Klopp has described Liverpool’s Champions League play-off with Hoffenheim as “the most difficult step” towards reaching the lucrative Javorius Allen Womens Jersey group stage for only the second time in eight seasons.Liverpool visit the Rhein-Neckar-Arena on Tuesday without the injured Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana and Daniel Sturridge and with the transfer saga surrounding the Brazilian plus fresh set-piece problems at Watford on Saturday casting a shadow over the start of their campaign. Hoffenheim, who like Liverpool finished fourth in their league last season, have also suffered disruption this summer with two key players, the Germany internationals Sebastian Rudy and Niklas Sule, departing for Bayern Munich. Klopp insists Liverpool are “in a good moment” for the first leg of the play-off and that the stance of the owner, Fenway Sports Group, towards Coutinho has not changed following Friday’s transfer request. But he believes Julian Nagelsmann’s “confident and aggressive” Hoffenheim team represent the most difficult obstacle to Liverpool’s aim of rejoining the European elite this season.“This is the strongest qualification round,” the Liverpool manager said. “England play Germany and you can go out against Germany. We were both fourth last season, both in strong leagues, but that does not increase the pressure. We want to go to the group stages. That was our target for the whole of last season and now we have two steps to go – but they are the most difficult steps. That is how it is. “If anybody thinks because they don’t know about German football or the quality of Hoffenheim – and a lot of people only know two names [Bayern and Borussia Dortmund] – it is clear we have to do the job. I am really positive and http://www.baltimoreravensauthorizedstore.com/javorius-allen-jersey-elite looking forward to the game, even when I know it is really difficult. That is no problem. That is how it should be in the Champions League, where all the games are difficult.”Despite the difficulties posed by Hoffenheim Klopp has called on his players to enjoy the pressure of Men's Old Time Hockey St. Louis Blues #16 Brett Hull Premier Navy Blue Sawyer Hooded Sweatshirt the Champions League play-off. “From all the signs of pre-season and the first game I think we are in a good moment,” he added. “But we have to show it tomorrow. “Yes, it is big because we can go in the Champions League. You can see the opportunity in different ways. We have already qualified for European competition which we didn’t have last year. I know now people will say: ‘Yes, but who wants to play in the Europa League?’ Manchester United didn’t want to play it last year but they won it and now they are in the Champions League. Things happen like that. We can either allow the pressure on this game to increase over the next 24 hours to the extent that we cannot walk any more or we still try to enjoy this opportunity. I think that is the best way to do it.” The Liverpool manager Ja'Wuan James Jersey reiterated that FSG will not sell Coutinho this summer even with the 25-year-old, who misses the play-off first leg with a back problem, agitating for a transfer. Klopp was reluctant to discuss the Brazil international but clarified his comments at Watford on Saturday, when he stated “his bosses” will decide the player’s future.“It is not that I don’t want to speak, it is that I can’t change my answers,” he said. “If they [FSG] say they [Barcelona] can bid whatever but we don’t want it, then that is a clear message. “We don’t want the money, we want to invest in the team and have the best team because we have our aims and dreams. That is the message.“I have the player from 31 August latest, again, or when the back issue is sorted. There is nothing else I can say about it. I think I said, ‘I have bosses’, right? I have many bosses, including my wife.“I can live with this, it’s no problem. They are 100% clear on it. There is nothing else to say.”As a seam-bowling duo, only the former West Indies quicks, Curtly Ambrose and Courtney Walsh, have more with 757 from their 95 Tests in tandem. How long the Anderson-Broad axis remains at Root’s disposal will hinge on the former, who at 35 should in theory be slowing down but has 20 victims at 14 already this summer.

Two more medals on Sunday – a jersey silver
Posted On 08/14/2017 01:05:44


Almost from the moment Neil Black became British Athletics’ performance director Authentic Audie Cole Womens Jersey in 2012 he targeted the relays because he knew they were the lowest of low-hanging fruit. Five years on, during the final day of the world championships, he watched as his team gorged on the juicy flesh on offer – and, in doing so, perhaps saved his job.World Athletics: GB win silver and bronze in 4x400m relays, plus Semenya wins gold – as it happened Rolling report: On another thrilling night Caster Semenya dominated the women’s 800m, and British quartets won silver in the women’s 4x400m and bronze in the men’s Two more medals on Sunday – a silver in the women’s 4x400m and a bronze in the men’s 4x400m – meant that Britain completed a sweep of relay honours and took their final tally in these championships to six.Incredibly, after having just one medal during the first eight days, British athletes went on to claim another five in a http://www.jaguarsofficialshop.com/authentic-barry-church-jersey.html stretch from 8.35pm on Saturday to 9.20pm – which must count as one of the most successful 24-hour periods in its history. True, six medals is at the low end of the target of six to eight set by UK Sport. But that mark has still been hit which means Black’s job is surely safe. The first British medal on Sunday came in the women’s 4x400m. It had looked a weak race before the start and it became even weaker when Jamaica’s Anneisha McLaughlin-Whilby pulled up on the second leg with a hamstring problem.That meant the 4x400m was no longer a battle royale between Jamaica and the United States but a procession. With Allyson Felix, who ran a staggering 48.7sec leg, driving the US team home they cantered to gold in 3.19:02.Almost six seconds behind came Great Britain’s team of Zoey Clark, Laviai Nielsen, Eilidh Doyle and Emily Diamond, who took silver in 3:25.00, with Poland third in 3:25.41. Nielsen paid tribute Men's Rudy Gay Authentic Purple Adidas Jersey: NBA Sacramento Kings #8 Road to the home support afterwards. “The crowd was even louder than they were on Saturday and I didn’t even think that was possible,” the 21-year-old Londoner said. “The team is so close so to come out and win a medal is beyond words. I can’t even begin to describe how amazing Authentic Lonnie Chisenhall Womens Jersey this feels.”Now it was up to Britain’s relay men. Their team had been struggling all season but the elimination of Botswana, the Olympic silver medallists Jamaica and London 2012 champions Bahamas had given them a chance of an unlikely bronze. And they took it.Matthew Hudson-Smith, who had missed the semi-finals, put Britain in second place behind the Americans. And while Dwayne Cowan slipped back to third, he established a 15-metre lead over the rest of the pack – allowing Rabah Yousif and then Martyn Rooney to bring home a medal behind Trinidad and Tobago, who took gold, and the US. Rooney, the twice European 400m champion, has had a poor season by his standards, having not broken 46 seconds all year. But in the relay he becomes a different animal. And while Rooney was happy with a medal, he believed that if he was in better shape he might have even turned bronze into gold.“I have never been set up like that before,” Rooney said. “Even when we won a medal in Beijing it was a lot tighter and there was a lot more work to do. I wish I was in the shape I was in last year because I think I could’ve gone past those guys down the home straight. “It is still amazing to come away with a medal at our home world championships,” he added. “I am really proud to be part of this team. There are some big men on this team who really stood up out there. We all came together to discuss everything, we sorted it all out and the result is a medal which is http://www.authenticclevelandindians.com/Manny-Ramirez-Jersey incredible.”Meanwhile, the British Athletics chief executive, Niels de Vos, also sounded an upbeat note about the performance of the Great Britain team, who had previously come in for criticism for their lack of medals in individual events. “We are extraordinarily happy,” De Vos said. “We will have had more finalists than we have ever had before, that’s a fantastic result. “We had four fourths on the track that collectively were less than two-tenths of a second away from being four medals. They weren’t medals, but this is a team in transition and coming out having our most finalists ever as we push towards the next Olympiad is a great place for British athletics to be in.” Fresh from her relay success, team captain Eilidh Doyle also insisted that the team had made great progress over the past 10 days at these world championships. “You’ve got to look at the bigger picture,” she said. “We’ve made the target but we’ve also had some really excellent results. I urge people to look at how many people finished higher than where they were ranked coming into this – our team as a whole has performed really, really well. I’m super proud of this team, they’ve done a really good job.”Against Spain Kay Wilson was the tormentor-in-chief, contributing four tries and duly earning herself the weekend off – Amy Wilson-Hardy coming in on the left wing and twice going close early on. Scarratt, restored to the starting lineup, struck first, however, going over in the right-hand corner after a cleverly delayed pass from Izzy Noel-Smith.

Spectators were urged to evacuate jersey Quail Hollow
Posted On 08/12/2017 02:30:22


To the certainties in this world being death and taxes, maybe weather delays should be added when it comes to the US PGA Championship. Perhaps the upcoming switch of this event to May is a smarter idea than anybody has Authentic Blake Martinez Youth Jersey given the PGA of America credit for. Someone, somewhere appears deeply against the tournament in its current position. Suspension of play, shortly before 5pm local time on Friday, ensured a sixth such scenario in a row at this championship. Menacing skies delivered the predicted storm, with tournament officials encountering their latest organisational headache as they seek to conclude this major on time. At least they have been in this movie before. A wider danger resonates in more ominous forecasts on Saturday and Sunday. US PGA Championship 2017: second round, as it happened Hole-by-hole report: A weather-interrupted second round saw Hideki Matsuyama and Francesco Molinari shoot wonderful 64s. Scott Murray was watching. Only the elements could – briefly – halt Hideki Matsuyama. Japan has surely never been closer to hailing a male major champion, a matter emphasised as he charged through the second-round leaderboard. The man who shot 61 to win at Akron on Sunday produced six birdies in 15 holes, including four in a row, in moving to seven under par, one adrift of Kevin Kisner. Matsuyama returned to the course to better that position, tying the lead with a birdie at the 17th before taking four at the last to http://www.packersnflofficialshop.com/authentic-brett-favre-jersey.html complete a 64. Matsuyama was not alone in making progress, even if his was the most striking. Jason Day, who offered such a grim analysis of his golf before striking a ball here that it sounded impossible he could compete, instead blasted himself into contention. Another major champion, Louis Oosthuizen, also lingers promisingly behind the leaders. Matsuyama, though, is the clear and present danger to all as he pursues national history while in the form of his life. What Rory McIlroy does not know about this venue is probably not worth bothering about. His assessment of what will or, more pertinently, will not transpire over the weekend is therefore telling. “A low round here used to be a 61 or a 62,” he said. “A low round now is a 66 or a 67. You’re playing your ass off to get that. I’d say if I shoot two 67s over the weekend, I’m going to have a really good chance.” McIlroy has posted both 61 and 62 here in previous tournament play. “This is not the Quail Hollow we have gotten to know over the last 10 years,” he added. “It’s a completely different golf course. Even if they didn’t do anything else with the golf course and just changed it to full Bermuda [grass] like it is now, all of a sudden it makes the golf course two shots more difficult.” The popularity or otherwise of alterations to this course will be a matter of future debate. It is highly unlikely any player will enjoy a procession towards Authentic Reto Berra Youth Jersey the Wanamaker Trophy despite the early touch of Kisner. The 33-year-old, who has never recorded a top-10 major finish, signed for back-to-back 67s for an eight under par total. If McIlroy’s matching 72s look uninspiring, the Northern Irishman was in grave danger of missing the cut after four bogeys in five back-nine holes. The two-shot recovery emphasised McIlroy’s willingness to battle.As McIlroy Women's Nike Philadelphia Eagles #24 Ryan Mathews Midnight Green Team Color Vapor Untouchable Limited Player NFL Jersey scrapped, one of his playing partners flourished. Rickie Fowler, who is yet to add a major title to his otherwise stellar CV, posted a second round of 70 to move to three under. His prominence is all the more impressive given a triple bogey seven in the early stages of day one, which threatened to derail his challenge. “You don’t want to get ahead of yourself,” said Fowler. “This week I’m going to have a good chance. The thing is I have got to manage that properly.“I have to stay patient. I have to go through the process, make sure we’re making the right decisions on each hole with each shot. With the way I’ve been playing, how I’m swinging this week and last week going into http://www.officialpanthersonlinestore.com/Shawn_Thornton_Jersey it, I know I can win this week. It’s more in between the ears, and not get ahead of myself. If we do that, it will be all right.” “I’m not really focused out there,” said a despondent Mickelson. “I’m having a tough time controlling my thoughts and not letting them wander to what I don’t want [to] happen.” Amateur golfers the world over know the feeling.Arsenal’s penchant for starting seasons by getting a wobble in early has become something of an epidemic and they made a good stab at a repeat here. Arsène Wenger leaned on the game’s statistics to suggest this win was somehow logical – bags of possession and 27 shots for his team compared to three on target for the visitors – but few in the crowd would have argued had Leicester been able to hold on to the lead they seized with moments of ferocious determination. A frenetic opening five minutes set the tone and presented a microcosm of all of Arsenal’s weird, paradoxical sense of possibility. Their ability to exude verve and be vulnerable in the same few flashes of a game was there for all to see. Day-one optimism cascaded down from the stands as the record signing Lacazette opened the scoring with his first meaningful Premier League touch. A mere two minutes into his official Arsenal career he was unmarked in the box to steer a powerful header past Kasper Schmeichel.

Matsuyama was not alone in making progress, even if his was the most striking. Jason Day, who offered such a grim analysis of his golf before striking a ball here that it sounded impossible he could compete, instead blasted himself into contention. Another major champion, Louis Oosthuizen, also lingers promisingly behind the leaders. Matsuyama, though, is the clear and present danger to all as he pursues national history while in the form of his life. What Rory McIlroy does not know about this venue is probably not worth bothering about. His assessment of what will or, more pertinently, will not transpire over the weekend is therefore telling. “A low round here used to be a 61 or a 62,” he said. “A low round now is a 66 or a 67. You’re playing your ass off to get that. I’d say if I shoot two 67s over the weekend, I’m going to have a really good chance.” McIlroy has posted both 61 and 62 here in previous tournament play. “This is not the Quail Hollow we have gotten to know over the last 10 years,” he added. “It’s a completely different golf course. Even if they didn’t do anything else with the golf course and just changed it to full Bermuda [grass] like it is now, all of a sudden it makes the golf course two shots more difficult.” The popularity or otherwise of alterations to this course will be a matter of future debate. It is highly unlikely any player will enjoy a procession towards Authentic Oliver Ekman-Larsson Youth Jersey the Wanamaker Trophy despite the early touch of Kisner. The 33-year-old, who has never recorded a top-10 major finish, signed for back-to-back 67s for an eight under par total. If McIlroy’s matching 72s look uninspiring, the Northern Irishman was in grave danger of missing the cut after four bogeys in five back-nine holes. The two-shot recovery emphasised McIlroy’s willingness to battle.As McIlroy Women's Nike Philadelphia Eagles #23 Rodney McLeod Limited Green Rush NFL Jersey scrapped, one of his playing partners flourished. Rickie Fowler, who is yet to add a major title to his otherwise stellar CV, posted a second round of 70 to move to three under. His prominence is all the more impressive given a triple bogey seven in the early stages of day one, which threatened to derail his challenge. “You don’t want to get ahead of yourself,” said Fowler. “This week I’m going to have a good chance. The thing is I have got to manage that properly.“I have to stay patient. I have to go through the process, make sure we’re making the right decisions on each hole with each shot. With the way I’ve been playing, how I’m swinging this week and last week going into http://www.officialarizonacoyotes.com/Adidas-Radim-Vrbata-Jersey it, I know I can win this week. It’s more in between the ears, and not get ahead of myself. If we do that, it will be all right.” “I’m not really focused out there,” said a despondent Mickelson. “I’m having a tough time controlling my thoughts and not letting them wander to what I don’t want [to] happen.” Amateur golfers the world over know the feeling.Arsenal’s penchant for starting seasons by getting a wobble in early has become something of an epidemic and they made a good stab at a repeat here. Arsène Wenger leaned on the game’s statistics to suggest this win was somehow logical – bags of possession and 27 shots for his team compared to three on target for the visitors – but few in the crowd would have argued had Leicester been able to hold on to the lead they seized with moments of ferocious determination. A frenetic opening five minutes set the tone and presented a microcosm of all of Arsenal’s weird, paradoxical sense of possibility. Their ability to exude verve and be vulnerable in the same few flashes of a game was there for all to see. Day-one optimism cascaded down from the stands as the record signing Lacazette opened the scoring with his first meaningful Premier League touch. A mere two minutes into his official Arsenal career he was unmarked in the box to steer a powerful header past Kasper Schmeichel.

So much for the coronation – or the redemption. This night was supposed to be Brent Celek Womens Jersey about Wayde Van Niekerk becoming the first athlete since Michael Johnson in 1995 to double up over 200m and 400m. Or Isaac Makwala defying sickness, the IAAF, and two punishing races in his legs on Wednesday to claim gold. Instead Ramil Guliyev, an Azerbaijani wearing a Turkish vest, ripped up the script to take the 200m world championship title.With Makwala fading early in the home straight, the race became a shootout between Guliyev and Van Niekerk, with the Turk clinging on to take gold in 20.09 sec – inches ahead of his rival, who recorded the same time. Jareem Richards from Trinidad and Tobago was third in 20.11, with Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake taking yet another fourth place for Britain in 20.24.This was the first world championship 200m final without Usain Bolt since 2007, when the Jamaican finished second behind Tyson Gay.Since then the event has been Bolt’s personal fiefdom – with 48 victories in 49 races since 2008 and gold medals in every single Olympic and world championship in that era. It was never going to be the same without him. But the supersonic era of sprinting already feels like it is fading into oblivion. Not that Guliyev, who switched allegiance to Turkey in 2011, minded. “This is not a shock but this does not feel real,” he said.“I am so proud. This title means http://www.nfleaglesofficial.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_BRENT_CELEK_JERSEY.html a lot. I delivered my best race at the right time. I’m so happy to be world champion. This is the best moment of my career.”In fairness, there is not much competition. True that in 2009 he came second in the European Athletics Rising Star of the Year Award having taken the 200m junior title. And he can claim to be the second fastest junior 200m runner in the history of the sport, behind Bolt. But it has taken time for the 27-year-old to come to the boil.Certainly few people had expected him to win this race, with the bookies having him as the 8-1 fourth favourite. Guliyev, however, had other ideas.“I was competing against some of the best athletes in the world, so it didn’t bother me that the attention was on them,” he said. “Maybe at the next competition everyone will Youth Nike Philadelphia Eagles #13 Nelson Agholor Game White NFL Jersey look at me instead.” Inevitably there were questions about Guliyev given that four of Turkey’s nine finalists at London 2012 have served drug bans, either prior to those Olympics or after. At the weekend, Paula Radcliffe cited Turkey as being Clay Matthews Womens Jersey among the four countries where 80% of the cheats from 2012 had come from. Guliyev said: “Every athlete chooses their own way. Everyone is responsible for themselves. It is hard for me to say one thing or another.”Van Niekerk broke down in tears because he felt hurt by allegations the IAAF had engineered a conspiracy to keep Makwala away from racing him in the 400m by putting the Botswanan in quarantine when he was sick on Monday. Said Van Niekerk: “I really feel I worked hard for this..“I have shown massive respect to Makwala and for him to say that something fishy was going on with the IAAF – I definitely deserve more respect but I have learned something from these championships. We are not here to make friends but to compete.” Makwala did not address Van Niekerk’s comments but admitted the efforts of Wednesday night had taken it out of him.“I’ve had one of the craziest championship journeys ever,” he said. “I don’t think I will ever face this again. I will always pray to not face this again.“When I got into the race I was feeling good, but the last 50m I was feeling tired. The lactic came. The 4x400m is next.” Mitchell-Blake was left to rue another fourth-placed British finish.“I knew it would be a tough one,” he said.“I’ve no excuses – Lane 2 is never ideal but I put myself in that position in the semi-finals. I tried to be really aggressive from the start, I had a great tracker with Wayde in front. “Nothing is perfect, all you can do is try and execute in the best way you can,” he added. “Regardless of how I feel about the race, it wasn’t enough to get a medal.”When it was put to Mitchell-Blake there would be better times ahead, and that he was still young, he refused to use it as an excuse.“I don’t see my age as a barrier,” he said. “I am 23 which is an age where I can get a medal so my age is not an excuse. I need to learn http://www.packersnflofficialprostore.com/AUTHENTIC+CLAY+MATTHEWS+JERSEY from it, build on it and come back stronger.”It is a message his team-mates, who have won only one medal in these championships, will do well to heed.
