RIO DE JANEIRO -- Mark Cavendish has triumphed in 30 stages of the Tour de France, won road racings world title and captured dozens of other important races to become one of Britains most successful cyclists. Nike React Hyperdunk 2017 Flyknit - Mens .The one thing missing was an Olympic medal.The sprinter from the Isle of Man finally accomplished that feat Monday night, taking silver in the mens omnium behind Italian rider Elia Viviani at the Rio de Janeiro Games.Im happy with it. I couldnt have done more, Cavendish said. I made every day count. On another day I might be closer to gold, but I have to be happy.Especially the way things have gone in previous trips to the Olympics.Cavendish and teammate Bradley Wiggins were the reigning Madison world champions when they headed to the Beijing Games in 2008. But in the event, no longer part of the Olympic program, the duo could do no better than ninth, leaving Cavendish the only British track cyclist without a medal.Four years ago, he headed to the London Games backed by a powerhouse road team to tackle a course that suited him perfectly -- he even won a test event on it. But on race day, the British squad missed the key breakaway and Cavendish wound up 29th, reduced to being a footnote in the race report.So in that context, silver isnt such a bad result.Its always disappointing not to win, Cavendish said, but I did all I could. And the guys behind me did all they could. So yeah, Im happy.His performance was impressive by any measure: Not only did Cavendish nearly overcome Viviani in the last event of the six-event omnium, he also held off reigning Olympic champion Lasse Norman Hansen of Denmark, who had to settle for the bronze medal.But perhaps making it more impressive was the fact that Cavendish squeezed in training for the omnium while continuing his successful road career. When other riders would take a break from the grind of professional cycling, he would hop on a jet to compete in a track cycling World Cup event, then hop right back on a plane to rejoin his Dimension Data at the next big race.Cavendishs performance never faltered on the road, either.In fact, the sprinting specialist earned the yellow jersey in the Tour de France after winning the opening stage, then won three more stages to stamp his mark on the sports biggest race.But Cavendish said all along that one of his priorities this season was that elusive Olympic medal, so he found himself abandoning the Tour in the final week to transition to the track.The past few weeks, he had been fiercely focused on succeeding inside the velodrome.I think gold would have been a fairytale but I dont think you can be unhappy with his ride, British Cycling coach Iain Dyer said. Its not easy gig by any stretch of the imagination but I think hes done himself proud here and I hope in the hours and days he will appreciate it.His effort in the six-race omnium was hardly without flaws.The biggest may have come in the elimination race, one of his better events, where he appeared to let up before the line and was knocked out by the Brazilian rider. Cavendish knew immediately how costly those lost points would be, slamming his palm on his handlebars during his cool-down lap.More trouble occurred in the points race Monday night, when Cavendish failed to see a South Korean rider next to him. Cavendish swerved down the banking of the track and collided with him, sending not only the Korean rider to the ground but also causing a pileup that caused Viviani to crash.Cavendish accepted the blame for the crash, but it ultimately didnt affect his standing.The bigger problem for Cavendish in the points race, where points are earned for intermediate sprints and bonus points are given for lapping the field, was that Viviani was marking him the entire time.Cavendish could never make a move to overcome his Italian rival.Still, he walked away from the Rio Games with the medal he so long desired, the glaring hole in his otherwise imperious resume finally filled -- even if it was filled with silver rather than gold. Nike Vapormax Wholesale .

Indias Jeev Milkha Singh made a strong start to his campaign in the European Tour Made in Denmark event on Thursday, scoring 5-under 66 after 18 holes. Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping . This placed Jeev in tied-8th place, with Joakim Lagergren of Sweden, Englands Tom Lewis and Belgiums Thomas Pieters leading with 9-under 62 after completing their first rounds in Farsoe, Denmark.Indias SSP Chawrasia found himself tied-73rd with a level-par 71, while Shiv Kapur shot 4-over 75 to end the first day in tied-131st place.Jeev began his campaign from the front nine with birdies on three of the first four holes, which saw him rise quickly to the top two of the leaderboard at that stage. He then registered his first bogey of the day, dropping one shot on the 433-yard par-four 5th. He recovered with a birdie on the 379-yard par-four 8th, before registering two further birdies on the back nine on the 644-yard par-five 11th and the 392-yard par-four 15th.Jeev had missed the cut at this European Tour event in 2014 and could only finish in tied-53rd position last year.Chawrasia, who began from the back nine, played 17 near-perfect holes, sinking birdies along the way on the?471-yard par-four 9th and later the 342-yard par-four 3rd.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Special teams will be in the spotlight when the Colorado Avalanche visit the Tampa Bay Lightning at Amalie Arena on Thursday.Both teams are looking for improvements on opposite sides of their respective special teams after a disappointing showing in the previous game.The Avalanche suffered the first loss of the season in Washington on Tuesday in a 3-0 showing while allowing a pair of power play goals for the third consecutive game. In 14 penalty kills this season, Colorado has killed off just eight and sat in 29th place in the league rankings in the early stages of the season.Our penalty kill was not good enough, Colorado head coach Jared Bednar told the Denver Post after the loss in Washington.It went beyond just the penalty kill for Bednar, who was displeased with his teams overall effort against the Capitals. Colorado allowed 20 shots on goal in the opening period and ended up being outshot 40-18 for the game.Well talk about our response, how were going to play after we win games, and how were going to play when we lose games, Bednar said. I think its all about our response. That was a bad night. It was a tough turnaround for our guys. Well give them a little slack there, but its all about the response and what we do the next game.That next game comes against an undefeated Tampa Bay team looking to close out a perfect four-game home stand to start the season. The Lightning have had to rally in each of their threee victories this season, including scoring with 5. Cheap NFL Jerseys. 5 seconds left in the third period on Tuesday against Florida before picking up a shootout victory.But in the last game against the Panthers, the Lightning went 0-for-3 on the power play, allowed a shorthanded goal while failing to generate a shot on goal with the man advantage, which included a 4-on-3 power play in overtime with a chance to win the game.Sometimes we get a little too comfortable, Lightning head coach Jon Cooper said of his power play unites. So weve mandated to the players how many shots we need. And when you get to our power play, a big part of why weve had success (in the first two games) is we have been shooting pucks. But when you start getting 4-on-3 power plays, you can argue its more of an advantage than a 5-on-4. And we were just too passive and too cute and when we had a chance to shoot, we didnt.In the opening two games of the season Tampa Bay combined for 14 shots on the power play before putting up a goose egg in that department in Tuesdays victory. But Cooper didnt want to beat his team up over what he perceived to be just one below par performance.Weve played nine periods of hockey, and Ive been pretty happy, Cooper said. If you want to sit here and say the first eight periods of hockey, weve played pretty well.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 ' ' '

Diego Forlan is unlikely to join Brisbane with the A-League clubs managing director Daniel Cobb all but ruling out a move for the Uruguayan star. Wholesale NFL Jerseys .Roar coach John Aloisi is reportedly keen on signing the 37-year-old as the clubs guest marquee player - the same rule that has allowed Melbourne City to snare Tim Cahill.FFA has also indicated it will be willing to contribute to Forlans salary if Brisbane is able to bring the former Manchester United and Inter Milan star to the A-League.However, Cobb said the Roar probably were not in a position to work to Forlans timelines, with the 112-cap international needing an answer quickly as he also dealt with interest from the Indian Premier League.Cobb also claimed it was unclear if the Roar had the financial capacity to meet Forlans demands - but said it would be no problem if he was majority owner, which he was seeking to become.Forlan has a deadline, he wants answers and I dont think we can work with him in timelines, Cobb told AAP.The reality is we have two marquee players at the moment and, whether the club can afford to do another player under the guest player system, were still reviewing that.If I owned the club at the moment, Id be in a different position but, unfortunately, I havent yet been approved as the owner so decisions around players is not straightforward.Cobb had previously indicated the Roars budget included funds for a guest marquee when they were chasing former Socceroo Brett Holman.Forlan last played for Penarol, his childhood club in Montevideo, and scored eight goals in 31 games in the 2015-16 season. Cheap Jerseys From China .

In what is easily the marquee matchup of Week 5 in the NFL, the 3-1 Atlanta Falcons fly into Sports Authority Field at Mile High to take on the undefeated Denver Broncos. Buy Running Shoes .The Falcons are currently one of the best teams in the NFC and lead the NFC South by two games. The Broncos are the only team in the AFC that has not sustained a loss.The Falcons offense comes into this game on a high. Quarterback Matt Ryan threw for 503 yards and four touchdowns against the Carolina Panthers in Week 4. Wide receiver Julio Jones had 300 yards receiving.This is the first time in NFL history a quarterback/wide receiver duo had 500 yards passing and 300 yards receiving in the same game. That is rarefied air. Not unlike the altitude the Falcons will be playing in Sunday in Denver.We are hitting on all cylinders as far as the passing game because we had a great week last week in the run game. Carolina figured they were going to come out here and stop the run game and they tried to do that. They left me one-on-one out there and we made some explosive plays down the field, the three-time Pro Bowl selection Jones said.The Falcons passing attack of Ryan to Jones will face a distinctly different test this weekend. Atlantas No. 1-ranked passing attack in the NFL will face the No. 2 pass defense of the Broncos. The Falcons average 354.2 yards passing per game. The offense has scored 152 points to lead the league. With Ryan leading the aerial attack, the team has 21 pass plays of more than 20 yards.In contrast, the Broncos defense designed by defensive coordinator Wade Phillips has only allowed an average of 169.5 yards through the air. The secondary, led by cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr., has only allowed six passes of 20-plus yards and zero of 40 yards or more. The Denver defense also leads the NFL in sacks with 17 this season.One of the main in-game battles to focus on will be Atlantas Jones going up against Talib. Both have Pro Bowl credentials. Both players are physical players at the line of scrimmage and when the football is in the air.Jones enters the game leading the NFL in receiving with 488 yards. Talib is tied for second in the NFL with three interceptions. Jones and Talib have a history of facing each other.In a 30-23 New England Patriots win over the Falcons in 2013, Talib covered Jones almost exclusively. The cornerback defended four passes and added an interception. The winner of this matchup could go a long way in determining the outcome of this game.The Falcons offensive line has played well all season and has only allowed nine sacks. The front five, led by center Alex Mack, will need to play strong against the best sacking team in the NFL.I think all five of those guys have really played extremely well through the first quarter of the season, Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan said. An offensive line is all about the chemistry. I think weve got a good group of five guys that are playing really good ball right now.The Broncos have their own defensive chemistry in outside linebacker Von Miller, who leads the NFL with 5.5 sacks, and defensive end Derek Wolfe, who has four sacks. While Miller has all the commercials, the big contact and the notoriety, Wolfes teammates rave about him.Hes the anchor up front. He stops the run. He can rush the passer. We love Wolfe, man. Hes definitely a Pro Bowl guy, I think. He just goes unnoticed because we have so many stars on our team, Harris said.Both of the Broncos quarterbacks, Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch, played in the win over the Buccaneers. Siemian was knocked out of the game with a left shoulder injury and struggled in practice throughout the week, putting Lynch in line for his first career start Sunday.Were probably going to need them both, Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said of his two quarterbacks. Its just kind of the nature of the business now-a-days. Here we are, four weeks into the season, and weve used them both to get to where were at. Its exciting to watch both of them grow and both of them prepare each week. I think they both have bright futures. Thats great for our organization.Lynch, the No. 26 overall pick out of the University of Memphis, completed 14 of his 24 passes for 170 yards and a touchdown in relief of Siemian last week.The Broncos have been solid on offense but not spectacular. The main key has been their lack of turnovers. Denver is plus-three in turnover ratio and will need to protect the football against a Falcons defense that has caused five turnovers. Four of those turnovers have been interceptions. Whichever quarterback plays for Denver will need to be leery of cornerback Robert Alford, who has two interceptions this season. Cheap Running Shoes .

BOSTON -- The Massachusetts medical examiners office has ruled that former New England Patriots defensive lineman Ron Brace likely died from an irregular heartbeat combined with a heart condition caused by high blood pressure. Nike Air Max Plus Tn Ultra Triple Black .An agency spokesman confirmed the cause of death Wednesday.The manner of death was ruled natural and is not considered suspicious.Brace died at his familys Springfield, Massachusetts, home in April.

After the win, the victorious Wildcats looked a bit weary.A much-needed break was waiting and theyll now be rested and ready when they open the Big Five portion of their schedule Tuesday night versus city rival Penn (7 p.m. ET) at the Palestra.This break comes at a good time for us, Villanova head coach Jay Wright said. It was good for us to experience this. We got a lot of our offense and defense in knowing that we would face this stretch where we wouldnt get a lot of practice in. I think it paid off for us. We were prepared but, on the other hand, I dont know if we were mentally prepared for this many games back-to-back. We had a couple of them -- Western Michigan, maybe this one -- where we didnt have great energy.Preseason player-of-the-year candidate Josh Hart led the way against the Cougars with 13 points and 11 rebounds. Hart has been a team leader and a budding star thus far this season.We need to learn to bring it every night, Wright said. That was the key to Ryan (Arcidiacono) and Daniel (Ochefu) last year. They had a mature approach to every game. Their approach was like that of a 15-year NBA veteran -- they came to work every day. Nike Air Vapormax Buy Online. Josh is really getting good at that. But our teams got to get good at that.The Quakers (2-2) opened their season with four consecutive road games -- wins at Robert Morris and Central Connecticut State and a loss at Miami and, most recently, a two-point loss at Navy last Wednesday.Junior Caleb Wood led Penn in scoring for the second game in a row with 15 points at Navy.Sophomore Jackson Donahue knocked down four treys, which are as many as he hit in the Quakers first three games combined. Donahue added six assists for a career high.But Penn made just four -- and attempted six -- free throws with none coming in the second half.Now the Quakers get a chance to come back home with a difficult matchup in Villanova. Its a daunting task for sure.It isnt easy to play on the road in college basketball, and weve started the season with four straight away from home, Penn head coach Steve Donahue told the Daily Pennsylvanian after the loss at Navy. Winning this game wouldve been a great step for us, but I think regardless of the result we showed some of the growth this team has had in the past couple weeks. Its just about overcoming some of the things we didnt do well today and getting ready for a tough game against Villanova. 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 ' ' '

NEW YORK -- Missing key components, the Baltimore Orioles offense is sputtering. Jay McClement Jersey .You dont say, well, this is just que sera, something that comes about, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said after Tuesday nights 7-1 loss to the New York Yankees. You cant live in that world. Were better than that. I know our guys are frustrated.Baltimore has lost three straight and nine of 15, and its AL East lead over second-place Boston was cut to one-half game. The Orioles have scored 10 runs in five games since the All-Star break and batted .150 (9 for 60) with one extra-base hit in the first two games of the series.First baseman Chris Davis (stomach virus) missed his second straight game and catcher Matt Wieters (sore right foot) also was out. Outfielder Hyun Soo Kim (strained right hamstring) went on the disabled list before the game.Weve got to find ways to continue to grind at-bats out and get guys on base, whether its a walk or a two-strike hit or something, said Caleb Joseph, who started in place of Wieters. Thats something that we usually do that prolongs innings that gives us a chance to win the games.Davis might be available for Wednesday.Hes got a little better color, a little better look, Showalter said. Hes had a pretty tough go of it, and I was proud of him that he came in the locker room. ... Hes starting to eat a little bit. I think he tried to have a banana and some other stuff, but hes just now getting to where he can hold something down.Wieters fouled a ball off the foot in the series opener. Showalter said a Wednesday return was possible.Matts pretty sore, he said.Starlin Castro homered in the second off Vance Worley (2-1) and hit a two-run double in the sixth against Odrisamer Despaigne. Chase Headley added a two-run homer off Mychal Givens in the eighth.Wearing glasses with bright orange frames, Worley made his first start since April 15 following 18 consecutive relief appearances. He allowed three runs, three hits and four walks in 4 1/3 innings, lasting 88 pitches.Im going to treat it as if Im in the rotation until they tell me Im out, so Ill get my work in and do what I need to do, Worley said. Its up to them to make their decision..Nathan Eovaldi (8-6) retired 11 straight batters before walking Ryan Flaherty in the sixth. He gave up Joey Rickards RBI double and loaded the bases with a walk to Manny Machado.Anthony Swarzak got major league home run leader Mark Trumbo to foul out to Rob Refsnyder down the right-field line, and the rookie first baseman made a two-hop throw home that held Adam Jones at third. Jonathan Schoop then fouled out to shortstop Didi Gregorius. Swarzak retired eighth straight batters, and Nick Goody struck out the side in a perfect ninth.We had some good people up, Showalter said. When you get those opportunities youve got to try to cash them in. Youre not going to get many.TRAINERS ROOMOrioles: Kim was put on the 15-day DL retroactive to July 11 and Baltimore selected the contract of OF Julio Borbon from Double-A Bowie.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. Craig Smith Jersey . -- For a team thats been on the wrong end of lopsided losses too often this season, the New York Knicks have become pretty good at pulling out the close ones.Its not exactly the plan new coach Jeff Hornacek laid out at the start, but its one hes willing to live with for now.Carmelo Anthony scored 33 points, including two free throws with 14.8 seconds remaining, and New York held on to beat the Sacramento Kings 103-100 Friday night.It just builds confidence and trust, said Brandon Jennings, who scored 13 points in place of injured Derrick Rose.

Conversely, New York is 6-0 in games decided by four points or fewer.Its really been our defensive stops late that have allowed us to win these games, Hornacek said. Theyre veteran guys that get after it and they have a confidence going. They dont get panicked, they just take their time and make the plays.New York went cold from the field down the stretch but made six free throws over the final 2:09 to hang on.The Kings missed multiple shots in the waning moments, including an uncontested driving layup by DeMarcus Cousins with 22 seconds left that would have given Sacramento the lead.Rudy Gay missed a potential tying 3-pointer with 3.9 seconds remaining, and Cousins also missed a desperation heave from beyond midcourt that hit the rim at the buzzer.We competed the whole night but we had small mistakes and we have to correct those or continue to lose close games, Cousins said. I hate to say it, but its a learning curve.Anthony had 23 points and five rebounds in the first half, then came up big from the stripe to help seal the Knicks fifth win in six games. He shot 9 of 22 from the floor and made his first 12 free throw attempts before missing two with 2.6 seconds left.Cousins finished with 28 points, 11 rebounds and six assists.

Jennings was 5 of 10 and had five rebounds with seven assists.

Cousins was whistled for a technical foul midway through the third quarter, his eighth of the season.A REST FOR BARNESMatt Barnes did not play for the first time this season, although Kings coach Dave Joerger said it had nothing to do with the ongoing investigation stemming from an altercation in a bar that Barnes and Cousins were allegedly involved in while the team was in New York last weekend. Joerger called it a scheduled rest for Barnes, adding that he plans to do it more frequently for the remainder of the season.UP NEXTKnicks: Continue their five-game road trip against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night.

LUCIE, Fla.MIAMI -- Miami Dolphins tight end Dustin Keller will miss the entire season because of a right knee injury, a person familiar with the diagnosis said Sunday. The person confirmed the extent of the injury on condition of anonymity because the Dolphins hadnt commented. Keller was hurt in the second quarter of Saturdays exhibition game at Houston. His leg bent unnaturally when he was tackled by D.J. Swearinger on an incompletion, and he was carted off the field. Keller signed a $4.25 million, one-year contract with the Dolphins in March after five seasons with the New York Jets. He had hoped to parlay a big season in 2013 into a multiyear deal. His injury represents a siggnificant setback for the Dolphins, who signed Keller to replace tight end Tony Fasano and help second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Kevin Fiala Jersey. Keller and Tannehill had clicked in training camp and connected on a 22-yard touchdown pass in the second exhibition game. The injury leaves the Dolphins without an experienced tight end. Options to replace Keller include fourth-round draft pick Dion Sims, who has had a good camp, and Michael Egnew, who played in only two games last year after being drafted in the third round. Keller has 17 career touchdown receptions, but he played in only eight games in 2012 because of hamstring and ankle injuries. 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 ' ' '
