LONDON -- Usain Bolt put down a marker ahead of the Rio Olympics as he won the 200 metres at the Anniversary Games with a time of 19. Puma Basket Heart Cz .89 seconds and fired a warning to his American rivals, accusing them of disrespect.It was the reigning Olympic champions first 200m of the year. He was forced to pull out of the Jamaica trials earlier in July with a hamstring injury, but any doubts over his fitness and form were allayed on Friday as he stormed to victory at the stadium where he took three gold medals at London 2012.Im getting there. Im not fully in shape. I need more work, Bolt said. But over time Ill be fine, Ill just keep doing the work.It wasnt perfect. I came off the corner trying to hold my form. Im happy with my execution and hopefully my coach is.Im definitely happy I could come here and finish the race with no injuries. Im going to Rio to defend my titles.Bolts main rival for the Olympic crown will be Justin Gatlin, who was one of a number of American sprinters to question Bolts selection for Rio despite missing the Jamaican trials.Hes injured and he has a medical pass, Gatlin said. Thats what his country does. Our country doesnt do that.However, Bolt delivered a warning to Gatlin and those challenging him for his 100 and 200 crowns, saying he felt he was the victim of disrespectful comments from the American campI felt it was a joke. I felt it was a disrespect [if] they think Id back out of a trials, Bolt said. Ive proven myself year on year that Im the greatest. I laughed when I heard it. I was disappointed, especially in Justin Gatlin.Bolt was the biggest draw at the Anniversary Games and received a huge roar when he was paraded around the track on the back of a car. The roars rose when he stormed home to his 200m triumph, but he was visibly frustrated after the delayed start to the race.After a false start by Sean McLean, and then an interruption due to interference from the PA system, Bolt stormed home. Alonso Edward was second and Adam Gemili third.He had to prove his fitness to the Jamaica selectors after his hamstring injury ruled him out of the Jamaica trials. Having completed his first 200 of 2016, he will now return to Jamaica for further training before he looks to defend his 100, 200 and 4x100 titles in Rio, looking to complete a triple-triple in the process.The hamstring strain came at an unfortunate time, just 35 days before the start of the Rio Games. But Bolt seems to have fully recovered and his troublesome back is also behaving, with him saying on Thursday it was OK and it would hold up so he can compete and stay on track.After winning the 200 at the Anniversary Games, his sole focus is now Rio where he will lock horns with rival Gatlin, who won both the 100 and 200 at the U.S. Olympic trials with times of 9.8 and 19.75 seconds, respectively.Information from ESPNs Tristan Barclay was used in this report. Puma Boty Rihanna Fenty .

The World Anti-Doping Agency provisionally suspended the Moscow Antidoping Center on Sunday, saying its operations must improve or a six-month ban on the facilitys accreditation will be imposed. First off it is literally impossible to answer this question without someone getting offended, but I am going to try and take an objective approach.I am not arguing for bullying because thats not what this is. Im not arguing for purposely offensive behavior because thats not even close to what this is. I am arguing for a certain sense of logic, historical truth and tolerance.I am arguing a principle of team building in a safe manner, not defending random individual acts that could be used to paint the entire process as bad, which is how most arguments are framed these days.I believe in the rite of passage, I believe its team building and I believe that it can be done in a way that is sensitive but allows that team building process to unfold.A few examples wherein we accept behavior for what it is, because it is understood the intention to be comedy.Should we ban all comedians? There is an entire profession built around the notion of being offensive. Some of our favorite and most famous figures are comedians, and we are all delighted for a five-minute skit.Children play dress-up all the time. They inevitably decide how they can look the funniest, because this is understood even in their child-like minds, and they roll around for hours laughing at each other as they change costumes so to speak. Do we cry foul when our children play dress up?Halloween is a fairly understood dress-up day. Some people take it too far, but largely it is celebrated as a fun way to have an adventure with friends, family and see creativity in action. Should we similarly ban Halloween?There are a number of venues or situations where the act of dress up is understood, and offense is not intended to be serious but an act of humor.So while many will argue the fear of political correctness, I would say that the degree of embarrassment to the individual or public falls many levels below an actual comedy show and Halloween, but worse it deprives the individual athlete of a ceremony wherein they are the center of the team for a day, and everyone largely is celebrating their accomplishment as full-fledged major leaguers. Its actually a ceremony of acceptance, and someone stupidly branded it as hazing, and thats how we have arrived here.Yes, I remember my dress--up day. Puma Basket Heart Cena. I remember it fondly. I was dressed as a female of some sort. We werent making fun of people that actually dress that way, we were dressed up in uncomfortable clothes, as a contrast of macho dudes dressed in too tight fitting or too revealing clothes for our body type. Anyone looking at the exercise from a lens of humor would see the contrast for what it is and wouldnt be offended.I find it far more unfortunate that we twist truths to fit a narrative. Bullying exists, and bullying is quite terrible, inexcusable. In fact, the act of singling someone out for a difference or a weakness is disgusting to me. But to parallel these is a farce, and I see people mangle and mash up ideology as if this is MLB players thought process.Much of the time the outfit is an inside joke that might be a play on one word or instance that occurred during the season, and everyone on the team understands the symbolic nature of the outfit. But to those on the outside, they interpret it completely different.To insist that these outfits are disrespectful to anyone is maybe a stronger case than bullying but like comedy is either so clearly understood or the outfit itself doesnt even symbolize or attempt to symbolize how its being reported/ twisted to fit some narrative.Most importantly to consider, people have been dressing each other up in a humorous fashion for thousands of years, especially men dressing up other men. A few minutes on Google and there are hundreds of pertinent examples all over the world that continue to this day.Rookie Dress Up is like anything in this life. Done appropriately it is a healthy ritual. Taken too far and it becomes either offensive or dangerous. And now its out of the players hands. A part of the game that was openly and happily shared with fans in an effort to show our child-like spirit or humble ourselves in wearing something funny as a team-building moment is now gone but truthfully wont change much, and I dont really care that much.But rest assured some other ritual will rise, will be kept far more secret and hopefully its as safe and harmless as uncomfortable clothes. 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 ' ' '
