Jermain Defoe has promised to bring goals to Bournemouth again after completing his move back to the club. The 34?year?old striker has joined on a free Adidas RAdidas eilly Smith Authentic Jersey after exercising a relegation release clause in his Sunderland contract. Jermain Defoe: ‘I knew, given chances, I would score the goals’ Read more Defoe, who scored in a club-record 10 consecutive league games for Bournemouth during a loan spell in 2000-01, said the decision to sign a three-year deal there had been straightforward. “It’s great to be back and I’m really looking forward to this challenge,” he said. “When the opportunity came about to return to AFC Bournemouth, I just knew it was the right one. It was an easy decision, joining a top team with a top manager. It’s a great place to be. The Bournemouth fans know that every time I pull the shirt on I will give 100%, and the one thing I can guarantee is goals.” Bournemouth have invested heavily in Defoe’s wages and Eddie Howe – a former team-mate – was delighted to have got his man. “This is a huge moment for the football http://www.authenticfloridapanthers.com/authentic-reto-berra-jersey club and another step in the right direction,” the manager said. Sunderland appoint Simon Grayson as manager after shelving takeover talks Read more “We want to bring players here who can have a big impact on our continued rise and we believe Jermain fits that as a natural, proven goalscorer. We have known him for a long time, since working with him as a young pro and playing with him. I have followed his career and am delighted to say he is going to be playing for AFC Bournemouth again.” Defoe scored 15 Premier League goals last season to force his way back into the England squad. In a farewell message to Sunderland fans on Twitter he referred Dougie Hamilton Authentic Jersey to his friendship with the terminally ill six?year-old Bradley Lowery. He wrote: “I feel blessed to have played for such a great football club with some of the best fans I have ever come across. The highlight of my time has to be walking out with Bradley against Everton and that volley against Newcastle – a goal people still come up and talk to me about!! I want to wish everyone at Sunderland the best for the futureAdd this trio and City will be transformed from a lop-sided squad to one with a surfeit of riches front to back. At No9 the 20-year-old Gabriel Jesus, a rising star, would vie with Sergio Agüero. The attack’s support cast would be drawn from a clutch of top players: Leroy Sané, Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Raheem Sterling, and Bernardo Silva. In central midfield Ilkay Gündogan, Yaya Touré and Fernandinho are a trio of high-class playmakers and stoppers. Central defence is the other http://www.officialcalgaryflames.com/Adidas-Gary-Roberts-Jersey area that requires strengthening. City dropped out of the bidding for Virgil van Dijk only when Southampton set the 25-year-old’s price too high. The need for a centre-back arises because Nicolás Otamendi and Aleksandar Kolarov are questionable deputies. Guardiola does have the rejuvenated captain, Vincent Kompany, plus the huge potential of John Stones as a first-choice partnership. Between now and 1 September Guardiola has much surgery to perform. He is only two players into the rebuild and elite transfers are never easy. Yet his reputation plus City’s financial muscle is a combination many players will find hard to resist
Ivan Gazidis on Thursday evening implored a gathering of Arsenal supporters to unify behind Authentic Cory Spangenberg Womens Jersey the club for next season. After a period of division that he admitted made him feel “real regret”, the club’s chief executive, speaking at an end-of-season event at the Emirates, urged the fanbase for a clean slate. “There has been disagreement. There has been a lack of unity and a dissatisfaction. The board knows that. I beg you, please come together and give our manager and this team support. I want the atmosphere to be united and it has been a struggle because we haven’t had that.” While Gazidis insists work is ongoing to try to improve in a variety of departments, he still found himself having to defend the way the club is run. He reiterated the board view that Arsène Wenger has all the qualities they look for in a manager, then launched a firm defence of the majority owner Stan Kroenke, who at the end of last season dismissed a substantial takeover bid offered by the shareholder Alisher Usmanov.

He’s very focused on achieving success for the football. He hasn’t put debt on the football club. He has been nothing but supportive. He’s the guy who wanted us to go out and spend the money we generated from commercial deals, which we did in signing players like Alexis Sánchez.” Gazidis explained http://www.authenticsandiegopadres.com/Dave-Winfield-Jersey that the controversial £3m consultancy fee that was briefly paid to KSE, Kroenke’s sports business, was offered to him by the club chairman and that the American cancelled it once he realised it was upsetting supporters. “Stan, who comes to the AGMs, saw that and said, I don’t want to get involved in that, I’ll just waive the fee and my company will provide those services for nothing. The idea he would spend hundreds of millions of pounds investing in this football club to take out a million quid a year is frankly preposterous.

These are heady days for Essex cricket. After defeating Middlesex by an innings and 34 runs, despite Brian Poole Youth Jersey losing a day to rain, they sit proudly top of the County Championship by 28 points, after seven years out of the top flight. They have won three in succession and, whisper it, in turning over the title winners so emphatically, have the look of champions themselves. County cricket: Essex thrash Middlesex to go 29 points clear - as it happened! Simon Harmer took his second successive 14-wicket haul as Essex pulled clear at the top of the County Championship Read more Certainly, in Simon Harmer, they have the best spinner in the land and it was his nine for 95 – completing his second successive 14-wicket haul, the 10th time this has been done and first since 1931 – that secured the most dramatic of wins, moments before 9pm, and with a maximum of eight balls remaining in the match. It had been a remarkable performance: he has 47 wickets for the season (is it outrageous to suggest he could get 100?), not to mention his superb catching at second slip and handy lower-order runs. When, 30 minutes into the final day, Middlesex’s stand-in captain Dawid Malan unwisely tried to cut Harmer’s arm ball and was bowled, the die looked cast: this game would not make it to the final session, let alone the final minutes, such was Essex’s dominance. Middlesex were three down and 245 behind, having lost Nick Gubbins to the day’s first ball, edging a turner to slip, and Stevie Eskinazi, too. His dismissal was strange: done by Harmer’s drift, he edged to slip, where Alastair Cook scooped it up to his left, just far enough for Varun Chopra to dive across from leg slip and take the catch. That the game went http://www.footballpanthershop.com/Chris_Scott_Jersey_Cheapso deep was chiefly down to Nick Compton. Before this innings he had 81 runs in four innings this season, with a high score of 22. His century, his first since last August, was an immaculate exercise in concentration, from the 13 tricky overs he survived with Gubbins on the third evening, to the way he defended, relentlessly, rhythmically, back and across, throughout the final day. He cover-drove well and was not afraid to plonk Harmer down the ground when the ball was there. His 232-ball hundred was surely one of the best of his 26 in first-class cricket. Advertisement He shared 153 with Paul Stirling, who was equally impressive because he played against type. He was dropped at slip on 19 and twice in the 20s at short-leg but there was barely a shot in anger. Eventually he fell to Harmer too, caught at leg-slip. With the new ball Harmer then snared John Simpson at slip, to complete his 10-wicket haul. Saving the game had been left to Compton and he entered the last hour with Ryan Higgins. With every man in close Compton, like many Warwickshire batsmen last week, fell lbw not offering a stroke. Higgins moved the clock 10 minutes further on but was caught at slip, as Middlesex – heckled by a raucous crowd and befuddled by Harmer and, in Toby Roland-Jones’s case, Dan Lawrence – lost four for one. Last to go was Steven Finn, the latest to offer no convincing stroke and Essex’s fielders set off every which way imaginable, toasting a very special win. Derbyshire finally win after 710-day wait The Recap: sign Authentic Chris Harris Jr Youth Jersey up for the best of the Guardian's sport coverage Read more A sporting declaration from the Hampshire captain, George Bailey, did not quite bring a win against Somerset, who survived eight down at the Ageas Bowl to claim a draw. Bailey set Somerset 161 to win in 31 overs a match blighted by rain, and Somerset went after the win, but continually lost wickets. In another dramatic finish, Josh Davey and Craig Overton survived seven balls to ensure they took eight points from the match to Hampshire’s nine. Essex’s closest challengers, Lancashire, had their game with Warwickshire ruined by rain, and the story was the same for Joe Root in Yorkshire’s match against Surrey; Root sat 12 for two rainy days and presumably did not learn a great deal about facing the pink ball. The same goes for Ben Stokes, as the last two days were rained out between Durham and Worcestershire. Derbyshire secured their first Championship win since 20 July 2015 (that is 710 days, and in some style, as Hamidullah Qadri, a 16-year-old making his debut who was born in Afghanistan is and the first player born this century to play county cricket, took the final wicket, his fifth of the innings, as Glamorgan were beaten by 39 runs. Glamorgan were bowled out for 172 and Qadri, an off-spinner, took five for 60. At Wantage Road, Northamptonshire won an outrageous game against Leicestershire, as http://www.jetsofficialsonline.com/Calvin_Pryor_Jersey_Cheapthe visitors fell three short of chasing 394. Colin Ackermann scored a century and Mark Cosgrove a swift 76, and Matt Pillans kept Leicestershire’s hopes alive with 55, only to Rory Kleinveldt; Leicestershire were 391 all out. Despite a contrivance, hands were shaken and a draw declared at Hove, where Gloucestershire closed six down 139 short of their target of 351 against Sussex. Kent were lucky to escape Trent Bridge with a draw. When they were bowled out for 265, Nottinghamshire needed just 75 to win, and then the rain came
Ed Warner, the UK Athletics chairman, has called for UK Sport to be scrapped amid an organised revolt against how the Olympic and Paralympic funding agency operates. Warner claimed UK Sport should be disbanded after 11 national governing bodies left without lottery and exchequer funding for the four-year cycle to Tokyo 2020 amid claims they had been “thrown off a cliff” by the organisation. “If you put everything Authentic Andrew Cogliano Womens Jersey on the table, why don’t you tear up UK Sport and embrace the British Olympic Association and the British Paralympic Association as the deliverers of the high-performance funding?” Warner said. “Why would it need to exist if you had a BOA and a BPA that were structured in the right way? You might be able to get rid of loads of overhead costs.” The model of national Olympic committees allocating the bulk of funding to athletes is already followed by the US and Germany. Warner’s suggestion was one of several alternatives put forward when he met Adrian Christy, chief executive of Badminton England, Sarah Sutcliffe, CEO of Table Tennis England and David Pond, CEO of wheelchair rugby, in London. Under the banner Every Sport Matters they are leading the rebellion against UK Sport and calling for an immediate strategy review. Christy is due to meet Tracey Crouch, the minister for sport, on Monday and the newly appointed chair of UK Sport, Dame Katherine Grainger, in the coming weeks but pleaded for emergency funding until a thorough review can be completed. “We want [Grainger] to open her mind, eyes and ears, to see and hear what is http://www.authenticducksstore.com/cam-fowler-jersey_c-427.html happening around the system and take this as a matter of priority,” Christy said. “Systems will break. I’ve made 33 redundancies in total, we’ve gone from 24 athletes to 12, five coaches to three and no sports science, we’re buying that in piecemeal. Our development pathway is eight to 12 years, so if we lose the Tokyo cycle, we’ve lost 2024, too, and will have to rebuild.” Advertisement UK Sport allocated £345m – from a total budget of £550m for 2017 to 2021 – to 16 Olympic and Paralympic sports in December with badminton missing out completely despite the men’s doubles pairing of Marcus Ellis and Chris Langridge winning a bronze medal. Christy said he felt they had been “thrown off a cliff” by the UK Sport chief executive, Liz Nicholl, with no smaller pot of money offered as a parachute payment. While the ruthless funding model arguably led to Great Britain finishing second in the http://www.nflbengalsofficialshop.com/Nike-George-Iloka-Jersey.html medal table at the Rio Olympic Games, the backdrop has been a growing sense of disenfranchisement among minority sports and a lengthening roll call of sports investigating athlete welfare problems. Christy insisted he did not want sports already allocated funding to have that money cut but that extra money be found from “the fat in the system” of the £200m or so UK Sport spends elsewhere. Pond pointed to the personal stories of wheelchair rugby athletes as evidence that inspiration can be found away from the cold, hard metal of the medal table. “Stuart Robinson was blown up and lost both legs in Afghanistan, Chris Ryan was a golf pro then broke his back. I don’t buy this argument that the public only want medals. They have a broader view. They don’t want a ‘them and us’ situation. Look at what is happening elsewhere in this country. Culturally people don’t want that and they pay for this programme: it’s money from the lottery and tax.” The wheelchair rugby team won their match against Denmark at the European Championship in Germany yesterday but budget restraints mean they are unlikely to be able to afford to travel to next year’s world championship in Australia to take up the place they have earned. “I’m meeting all my athletes on Monday to crudely means-test them,” Pond said. “I need to Amos Youth Jerseysee who I can help so they can keep playing rugby. For at least six of them I know their only income will be disability benefit. So our system will almost certainly fold.” While Grainger was sympathetic towards the plight of the 11 sports, she warned against diluting the “no compromise” model. “I really feel for the sports and athletes who have not been funded for the Tokyo cycle, particularly those that were funded in the Rio cycle as they are closer than others to having the potential to be there in Tokyo, which is every athlete’s dream,” she said. “I will, of course, listen to these sports’ concerns and UK Sport will go out to consultation again on its investment strategy for the 2024 cycle, but as things currently stand, as ever with finite investment, we simply cannot reach the sports who are furthest away from medal success
This may not go down as one of Leeds’ most eye-catching displays of 2017 but it could certainly http://www.officialauthenticsaintsstore.com/Nike-Ken-Crawley-Jersey.html turn out to be one of the more important. The emergence of exciting talent has been commonplace in the Rhinos’ recent history and, in the absence of so much experience here, how thankful Leeds were to two promising prospects as they strengthened their position in Super League’s top four with the final weeks of the regular season approaching. The rigours of last season and Leeds’ unlikely battle against relegation seem a good while ago with the Rhinos sitting second in Super League this year. But the class of 2016 may not have been able to overcome the loss of such senior players to grind out a victory which, come the end of the season, could be priceless. Without frontline players such as their captain, Danny McGuire, and fellow senior players such as Jamie Jones-Buchanan and Rob Burrow, the onus here fell on Leeds’ younger players to solidify their play-off place before the split for the Super 8s next month. 广告 inRead invented by Teads While it was Kenny Vaccaro Womens Jerseyundoubtedly a struggle on occasions Leeds had just about enough to get past a St Helens side who had been threatening a push for the top four themselves in the weeks since their new coach, Justin Holbrook, assumed control. For the Saints the game swung on two moments – they were made to play almost the entire game without their scrum-half, Matty Smith, who suffered a torn eyelid in the opening minutes, and their captain, Jon Wilkin, was sin-binned with 20 minutes to go. At that stage St Helens were ahead but Wilkin’s exit helped spark a Leeds revival. “It was massive, wasn’t it,” lamented Holbrook of the yellow card. “It makes it hard without your captain. Matty has gone to hospital because they couldn’t stitch the ripped eyelid. It’s worse than a cut, that’s for sure.” Without Smith the Saints took an early lead after Adam Swift finished a break from Dominique Peyroux. With McGuire and Burrow missing due to suspension and injury respectively, after Joel Moon had levelled the contest, the Rhinos were grateful to two of their junior prospects for Eddie Lack Womens Jersey establishing a narrow half-time lead. Advertisement The young half-back, Jordan Lilley, added a penalty to make it 6-4 before the 17-year-old full-back, Jack Walker – who was outstanding in only his fourth senior appearance for Leeds – denied the St Helens hooker James Roby with a magnificent last-ditch tackle. Walker and Lilley combined to send Stevie Ward over shortly after half-time before the Saints took the lead through tries from James Roby and Tommy Makinson. However, Wilkin’s yellow card for an apparent crusher tackle proved crucial; 90 seconds later Leeds were back ahead through Kallum Watkins’ try and Moon linked up with Hall to secure victory in the closing moments.

I have high confidence we are going in the right direction. I am very excited about how we are developing as a Amos Youth Jersey team, how Pep has taken the squad and really started a process of going through that natural cycle of development.” Khaldoon al-Mubarak, Manchester City chairman, May 2017 In August Pep Guardiola embarks on a defining second season as the Manchester City manager. After finishing third in the Premier League and being knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage he cannot fail again. Guardiola can read the above comments and be reassured of Mubarak’s support but he knows patience will wear thin if City are not contenders in both competitions as effectively demanded by Mubarak in the same interview. Manchester City confident of signing Alexis Sánchez from Arsenal Read more The pressure is increased by the record spending Guardiola hopes to oversee. In summer 2009 Real Madrid spent £218m, with Cristiano Ronaldo at £85m the headline arrival to follow Kaká (£56m) and Karim Benzema (£31m). Guardiola could pass that amount with an outlay that may reach £220m-plus and he could http://www.authentichurricanestore.com/chris-terry-jersey_c-441.html spend a quarter of a billion before the window closes on 31 August, especially if the club’s confidence over signing Alexis Sánchez proves well-founded. There is, though, a glaring irony at work here. Guardiola is the attack-only coach (to paraphrase him) whose hopes of achieving success rest on defence, which is why he aims to sign three wide defenders. The left-back Gaël Clichy (aged 31) and the right-backs Pablo Zabaleta (32) and Bacary Sagna (34) have been allowed to leave. Critics might assert their departures come two years too late, given their age and obvious decline, and Guardiola should have addressed the problem when taking over 12 months ago. If that and the calamitous exiling of Joe Hart in favour of Claudio Bravo as goalkeeper were the glaring mistakes of a first season in charge, Guardiola is determined to make amends. The world record for a goalkeeper came close to being broken with the €40m (£34.69m) paid to Benfica for Ederson. Now Guardiola’s focus is on full-back. Brazil’s Dani Alves is expected to arrive on a free after his release from Juventus. Guardiola is also pursuing another right-back, Kyle Walker from Tottenham, and the Monaco left-back Benjamin Mendy. Alves was bought by Guardiola for Barcelona in summer 2008. The 34-year-old has vast experience and a winning mentality. He has won six La Liga titles, three Champions Leagues, two Uefa Cups, five Copa del Reys, one Serie A title, one Coppa Italia and one Copa América, plus 100 caps. At 27 Walker has won little but is the England right-back and nearing his Amos Youth Jersey peak. He would be expected to push Alves for a starting place. Alves and Walker offer the attacking potency Guardiola craves. So too Mendy, the 23-year-old who was part of the fine Monaco side who dumped City out of the Champions League in March. If the France left-back signs he would slot straight into the first teamDani Alves confirms Juventus departure with Manchester City waiting Read more The combined £79m paid for Ederson and Silva is the opening outlay. The minimum £45m each for Walker and Mendy would take the sum to £169m. If the going rate for an established centre-back has risen to around £55m (Stones was an initial £47.5m) then Guardiola will have splurged £224m even before the cherry-on-the-cake addition of Arsenal’s Sánchez (£50m) or Monaco’s Kylian Mbappé (£100m–plus). Purchase one of these and Guardiola would shatter the £250m mark. The corollary is the increased expectation all of this heaps on the manager. He is conscious of having being granted a season’s grace. Last season he reminded himself more than once that the axe is never far away. In mid-May Guardiola went further by admitting that at previous clubs, Barcelona and Bayern Munich, he would have been sacked. The truth is stark: a manager who has won two European Cups, three La Liga titles, two Copa del Reys, two German doubles and a further Bundesliga has won http://www.officialauthenticsaintsstore.com/Nike-Josh-Hill-Jersey.html zero for City. Guardiola is being given strong backing by Mubarak publicly and financially. He dare not fail
Arsenal have had an offer of €35m (£30.74m) turned down by Monaco for Thomas Everson Griffen Womens Jersey Lemar, with the French club adamant they will not sell the winger. Arsène Wenger is determined to reinvigorate Arsenal’s attacking options as he struggles to retain his star player, Alexis Sánchez, who is wanted by Manchester City among other clubs, and he has targeted Lemar as one possible solution. Free agents XI: the best out-of-contract bargains available this summer Read more Lemar, who has long been coveted by Tottenham, likes to play on the left flank – the position Sánchez has occupied most regularly at the Emirates Stadium. The 21-year-old is quick and skilful, and he enjoyed a stunning season last time out, when he helped Monaco to win the Ligue 1 title and reach the semi-finals of the Champions League. He is understood to be keen on working under Wenger, who managed Monaco towards the start of his career and retains a tremendous reputation in French football. But the Monaco vice-president, Vadim Vasilyev, who is fighting to keep a clutch of his stars, has told Arsenal they cannot have Lemar and that the stance is non-negotiable. Whether the London club accept that remains to be seen. Lemar moved to http://www.minnesotavikingsauthorizedstore.com/fran-tarkenton-jersey-elite Monaco from Caen in 2015 and is under contract until 2020. The club are happy to grant him new and improved terms. He has five France caps. Monaco have sold the attacking midfielder Bernardo Silva to Manchester City in a deal worth £43.6m, while the £40m-rated left-back Benjamin Mendy is also wanted by City and the midfielder Tiemoué Bakayoko is on the verge of joining Chelsea for around £40m. Wenger has been keen to do his transfer business early this summer and he has secured the left-back Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer from Schalke. He has overseen a £44m bid for the Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, which was rejected. Ryan Sessegnon, the 17-year-old Fulham left-back and another player Arsenal have tracked extensively – together with every other top club in England – has signed his first professional contract, to 2020. Sessegnon feels that he owes a debt to Fulham, where he has progressed through the academy, and he will stay with them for the forthcoming season, at http://www.sandiegochargersauthorizedstore.com/joey-bosa-jersey-elite least. Advertisement Tottenham have also had a serious interest in Sessegnon and, as with many of their rivals, including the Manchester clubs, they had hoped that the player would opt against signing a professional deal at Fulham, which would, potentially, have allowed them to prise him away for compensation costs. That will now not happen. Fulham were adamant that Sessegnon was not for sale and they hope that he can be an integral part of a promotion push from the Championship. He is poised to link up with the England squad for the European Under-19 Championship in Georgia, after what was a breakthrough season for him. Sessegnon, who turned 17 in May, made 30 appearances in all competitions for Slavisa Jokanovic’s team, scoring seven goals. The former England Josh Lambo Authentic Jersey international Scott Parker, who has been at Fulham since 2013, has announced his retirement

We wish him the best and thank him for his service to the Knicks as both a player and an executive.” Jackson cemented his reputation as one of the greatest coaches in basketball history when he led the Chicago Bulls, and then the LA Lakers, to 11 NBA titles. However, his decision to serve as an executive for the first time, acting as Knicks president, has been widely seen as a disaster. Since his arrival with the Knicks in March 2014, the team has failed to reach the playoffs, posting an 80-166 record in his three full seasons in New York. There has also been friction between Jackson and the Knicks’ two biggest stars, Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis. Jackson was keen to trade Anthony and said he would listen to offers for Porzingis, one of the NBA’s best young players. Chris Paul traded to Houston Rockets from LA Clippers, according to reports Read more Jackson wasn’t much more successful off the court. In November 2016, LeBron James said he lost respect for Jackson after he used the word “posse” to describe the Cleveland star’s business partners. James said such comments http://www.officialpadrestore.com/Fernando_Rodney_Jerseyunderscore the difficulties young African-Americans have in gaining respect, especially in the business world. The 71-year-old’s tied with the club goes back decades: Jackson won two NBA titles with the Knicks during his playing career. “I had hoped, of course, to bring another NBA championship to the Garden. As someone who treasures winning, I am deeply disappointed that we weren’t able to do that,” Jackson said on Wednesday. “New York fans deserve nothing less. I wish them and the Knicks organization all the best — today and alwaysHowever Bolt insisted he would be ready for the world championships, which begin on 5 August, saying: “I never worry. I always tell you guys if my coach is not worried, I am not worried. I just need to go to my doctor and get everything checked out to make sure everything is smooth and continue training so when my next race in Monaco comes [in the Diamond League on 21 July], I’ll see where I am at.” Bolt confirmed he would fly to Germany to see his controversial doctor Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt, who is known for injecting his patients with calves’ blood in the next few days. “It’s just my back, as always,” he added. “My doctor told me over the years that the older I get the worse it is going to get so I just really have to try and keep it in check. I need to go see him to make sure everything is smooth because it http://www.officialmetsproshop.com/David_Wright_Jersey is a bit tight. But I didn’t get injured and that’s the key thing. I am happy about that – it’s just about sorting it out and I should be fine.” Bolt, however, still looked track-rusty – which was perhaps understandable given that it was only his second race of the season after a sluggish 10.03 sec at the Racers Grand Prix earlier this month. But the stiffness in his back cannot have been that serious given he then spent 45 minutes posing for selfies – before, to the delight of those still in the stadium, taking two practice long jumps. Advertisement However his coach, Glen Mills, believes Bolthe still has some catching up to do after missing three weeks’ training while grieving for his friend, the late British high-jumper Germaine Mason. “His preparation is not normally where it used to be at this time, so he certainly has ground to catch up,” said Mills. “A big chunk of his training has been affected. “It was a big blow; he took it very hard. It affected him in terms of his training because he lost about three weeks of training time, and then getting back into things was slow for him, so I am not sure if he is totally over it.” The conditions Frank Robinson Youth Jersey were perfect for sprinting – that much was obvious watching the South African Wayde van Niekerk slip below Michael Johnson’s 17-year-old world best in the 300m earlier in the evening. Van Niekerk, who also took Johnson’s 400m world best in winning the Olympics in Rio last year, blasted out of the blocks and finished strongly in 30.81sec – beating Johnson’s time by 0.04. Mo Farah sprinted to victory in a 10,000m that was little short of an exhibition given his personal best of 26min 46sec was nearly 30sec quicker than the rest of the field. Farah had aimed to go close to that but he was frustrated by erratic pacemaking, which started off slow and then went too fast. Inspired by chants of “Mo, Mo, Mo”, however, he finished strongly to win in 27:12:10, ahead of Mathew Kimeli, a promising 19-year-old who finished sixth in the Kenyan trials at the weekend, but 26 seconds outside his personal best
Michelle Payne, one of racing’s most high-profile jockeys since she became the first woman to win the Melbourne Cup in November 2015, faces a ban from the saddle of about a month after testing positive for a banned substance while riding at Swan Hill in Victoria two weeks ago. Traces of phentermine, an appetite suppressant, were found in a urine sample taken Derek Stepan Authentic Jersey from the rider on 11 June, and she will face a disciplinary hearing into the finding on Thursday. Michelle Payne: ‘People doubt female riders. There’s more to it than strength’ Read more Reports in Australia suggest that Payne was prescribed the drug by her GP after undergoing surgery to save her pancreas following a serious fall in May last year. However, she is strictly liable for the presence of any prohibited substance in her system and should have been aware that phentermine is banned. Hugh Bowman, one of Australia’s top jockeys, was suspended for six weeks after testing positive for phentermine in 2003, while Damien Oliver, a three-time Melbourne Cup winner, was banned for four weeks in 2009 after testing positive for ephedrine, another appetite supressant, though the penalty was overturned on appeal. Payne rode at Royal Ascot for the first time last week aboard the 66-1 outsider Kaspersky, who finished fifth of the 16 runners in the Group One Queen Anne Stakes. She is also due to be one of the star attractions at the annual Shergar Cup at Ascot http://www.officialkingsteamstore.com/Jonathan_Quick_Jerseyon 12 August, as part of a three-strong team of female riders alongside Emma-Jayne Wilson, from Canada, and Josephine Gordon, who was Britain’s champion apprentice last season. A ban of six weeks or longer would rule her out of the event for the second year running, after she was forced to miss both Royal Ascot and the Shergar Cup in 2016 after her fall in May. Payne, 31, was only the fourth female jockey to compete in the Melbourne Cup in its 155-year history when she won the race aboard the 100-1 outsider Prince of Penzance. In an interview shortly afterwards, she described racing as “a chauvinistic sport”, thanked Prince Of Penzance’s owner for his faith in her, and added that “everyone else can get stuffed [who] think women aren’t good enough” to compete against men. Michelle Payne's Melbourne Cup win reveals chauvinistic side of Australian horse racing Read more It was a performance and victory speech that instantly turned Payne into one of the sport’s major stars, but her attempt to build on her Melbourne Cup success was interrupted by a serious injury in a fall at Mildura racecourse Jeff Skinner Womens Jersey a few months later. Her pancreas was effectively split in two, and surgeons saved the organ only by stitching the larger part to her stomach. Des O’Keefe, the chairman of the Australian Jockey Association, told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s website on Wednesday that Payne is “extremely disappointed” by the positive test. “It’s based on the fact that after that split pancreas last year, which was widely reported, her GP has in good faith prescribed her this as something that would assist her,” O’Keefe said. “Unfortunately [it is] Michelle’s onus to be aware of what she can and can’t take and that should’ve been provided to the doctor, who then may have come up with an alternative treatment that didn’t breach the rule once tested.

She accepts full responsibility for having this substance, this appetite suppressant in her system.” Since August 2016, when she successfully applied for a trainer’s licence, Payne has been pursuing a dual career as both jockey and trainer, and took the http://www.officialmarinershop.com/Nelson_Cruz_Jersey reins when her first runner finished second in a race at Warrnambool in mid-October. So far, she has trained two winners from 33 runners, with her first success coming at Swan Hill in November. The story of Payne’s struggle for acceptance as a jockey and her historic success in the Melbourne Cup is also being turned into a film, with Australian actor Rachel Griffiths in the leading role
