after Dusmatov climbed down from his teams from corse178's blog

LONDON -- Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is close to ending his search for a central defender and striker, saying Friday the club is working on deals to sign Shkodran Mustafi from Valencia and Lucas Perez from Deportivo La Coruna. Cheap Basketball Shoes Online .Wenger said he is 99 percent confident of completing the signings before Europes summer transfer window shuts late Wednesday.Asked if bringing in Mustafi and Perez would conclude Arsenals business in the transfer window, Wenger said: We already have a big squad ... and we cant have any more players.While the Manchester clubs have spent more than $400 million in the window, its been another underwhelming few months for Arsenal, whose only major signing was Switzerland midfielder Granit Xhaka.It was a strange transfer market -- I expected it to be easier than ever but it was more difficult than ever, Wenger said. Not a lot has happened.It looks like when you meet other clubs and you have an English passport, you hit these prices which are very difficult to understand compared to the quality of the players.Mustafi is a 24-year-old Germany center back and his arrival would solve an injury crisis, with Gabriel Paulista and Per Mertesacker currently sidelined with long-term problems.Perez, 27, is a Spanish striker who scored 17 goals for Deportivo last season -- the only time he has scored more than 10 goals in a single season. He likely will be a back-up to Olivier Giroud up front, with Wenger having failed with bids for Leicesters Jamie Vardy and Lyons Alexandre Lacazette. Cheap Basketball Shoes Discount . -- Five former Kansas City Chiefs players who were on the team between 1987 and 1993 filed a lawsuit Tuesday claiming the team hid and even lied about the risks of head injuries during that time period when there was no collective bargaining agreement in place in the NFL. Cheap Basketball Shoes Sale .

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Hasanboy Dusmatov was 7 years old when Mahammatkodir Abdullaev came out of their shared hometown to win the first summer Olympics gold medal in Uzbekistans history.When I was a kid, I saw Abdullayev getting the gold medal, Dusmatov said. At the time, I had a dream to repeat the story and get another gold for my country.With one brilliant performance after another in Rio, Dusmatov made it happen for himself and for Uzbekistan.The 5-foot-1 light flyweight dominated Colombias Yurberjen Martinez in the final Sunday, claming Uzbekistans second boxing gold and just its sixth gold in any summer sport.Dusmatov climbed on his teams shoulders and rode around Riocentro Pavilion 6 with an Uzbek flag draped around him, screaming to the cheering section filled with his larger teammates and many crying Uzbek men.Im very happy to be the first athlete from my delegation to get a gold, he said, dedicating the win to the President of Uzbekistan, Islam Karimov.Abdullaev memorably beat Miguel Cotto and Ricardo Williams Jr. on the way to the title at the Sydney Games in 2000. Dusmatov and Abdullaev are both from Andijan, and the 23-year-old Dusmatov joined him atop the sport by winning the first gold of the Rio Games in the mens lightest weight class.Dusmatov was outstanding from his first fight in Rio, a unanimous decision over Mexicos Joselito Velazquez last Monday.dddddddddddd As a seeded fighter, he only had to win four bouts to claim gold, but Dusmatov was clearly the dominant talent.He proved it in the semifinals with a clear win over bronze medalist Nico Hernandez, the surprisingly impressive American. Dusmatov then cemented it by dominating Martinez in the final, throwing aggressive combinations and standing his ground with perfect footwork against the Colombians offense.Uzbekistan added six bronze medals to Abdullaevs gold over the previous four Olympics, but the current team is poised to multiply that medal count. Dusmatovs team is an amateur boxing power, with a 15-4 record so far in Rio and a roster full of gold medal candidates.Martinez rose from obscurity to claim Colombias first silver medal in Olympic boxing, highlighted by his stunning victory over Cuban star Joahnys Argilagos in the semifinal.After Dusmatov climbed down from his teams shoulders and accepted his gold, he immediately turned his thoughts to the future -- and something even Abdullaev didnt do.I will definitely continue, and I will participate in four years in Tokyo, Dusmatov said. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
