RIO DE JANEIRO -- After a day off due to gusty winds, Olympic rowers got back in their boats Monday with the outstanding U.S. womens eight making a strong debut in Rio.On calm water with barely a breeze on Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, the Americans qualified for Saturdays final in 6 minutes, 6.34 seconds, a whopping eight seconds ahead of the Netherlands.It was good to get a race under our belts, said Meghan Musnicki, one of two rowers remaining from the U.S. eight that won gold in London 2012. This is the first time weve raced in this lineup.Britain won the second heat in 6:09.52 and is lining up as the strongest candidate to smash the dynasty of the Americans, whove won 10 consecutive world and Olympic titles in the event.Its definitely achievable and we all believe that we can do it, and thats what you really need in a race like this, said Karen Bennett, who rows in seat No. 7 in the British boat. What better place to beat them than the Olympics to really make a statement.The Brits held off New Zealand and Canada, coxed by 56-year-old Lesley Thompson-Willie, who is participating in her eighth Olympics.Britain also secured a spot in the final of the mens eight, winning its heat in 5:34.23 while defending Olympic champion Germany won the other heat, four seconds slower.Helen Glover and Heather Stanning nearly saw their four-year winning streak end in the womens pair as Hedvig Rasmussen and Anne Andersen of Denmark led the race until the final stretch. The British pair won by just two-tenths of a second and advanced to the semifinals, along with the Danes.A Serbian pair that capsized in choppy waters Saturday stayed in their boats this time as they qualified for the semis in a repechage.Vladislav Yakovlev of Kazakhstan was less fortunate as he flipped in the single sculls after just 200 meters. Yakovlev climbed back into his boat and finished the race almost five minutes behind the Algerian winner.The first medal races in the Olympic regatta are set for Wednesday. Jake McCabe Gear . Mickelson barely made the cut but had the best round of the day with nine birdies and an eagle coupled with two bogeys to sit two shots behind leader Craig Lee of Scotland. Lee shot a 69 for a 12-under 204 total. "I just love the fact I am in contention and have an opportunity in my first tournament of the year here in Abu Dhabi," Mickelson said. Dale Hawerchuk Gear . Giroud, who wasnt in the starting lineup for two matches after allegations about his private life and a decline in form, scored twice in the first half. Tomas Rosickys chip made it 3-0 before half time at Emirates Stadium, while defender Laurent Koscielny scored an unmarked header in the second half. http://www.buffalosabresgear.com/rasmus-ristolainen-gear/ . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. Jordan Nolan Gear . - NASCAR announced a 33-race schedule for the 2014 Nationwide Series with virtually no changes from this years slate. Mattias Samuelsson Gear . -- Sergey Tolchinksy scored his second goal of the game 3:56 into overtime as the Sault Ste. Match factsSeptember 9, 2016Start time 1900 local (1330 GMT)Big PictureTo watch Australia rewrite the T20 record books on Tuesday, youd think they were the worlds dominant team in the format. And indeed, they do boast two of the three highest T20 international totals of all time (263 for 3 this week and 248 for 6 against England in 2013) and all of the three highest individual scores (Aaron Finch 156, Glenn Maxwell 145*, and Shane Watson 124*). Yet, for all of those monster scores, Australia were booted out in the group stage of this years World T20 and have only once made the final of that event, when they lost to England in 2010. It is a format in which Australia are inconsistent, but, as this week has shown, at their best their firepower is awesome.Sri Lanka, on the other hand, had won a World T20 title, back in 2014. Some links from that triumphant final remain - Kusal Perera, Thisara Perera, Sachithra Senanayake. Some have gone - Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Rangana Herath, for example. And another is about to leave: Tillakaratne Dilshan, who played every match of that successful campaign, is set to play his final match for Sri Lanka. A batsman who has brought great joy to Sri Lanka - not least in the T20 format - Dilshan will hardly want to leave the game on a low, and Tuesdays match was about as low as it gets in T20Is.Form guide(last five completed matches, most recent first)? Australia: WLWWLSri Lanka: LLLLLIn the spotlightAnd so this is it. Five weeks before his 40th birthday, Tillakaratne Dilshan bows out of international cricket. A career that began in Bulawayo in November 1999 under the captaincy of Sanath Jayasuriya will end in Colombo in September 2016 under the selection regime run by the same man - Jayasuriya. Dilshans 497th international match will be his last, a T20I against Australia at the Premadasa Stadium. Dilshans long farewell has included some entertaining comments off the field, but now Sri Lankan fans hope that he says goodbye with something special on it.Who needs a little thing like form? Not Glenn Maxwell, who missed out on selection for the recent ODIs in Sri Lanka due to a lack of runs. Instead, he was sent to Queensland to play for Australia A and made scores of 0, 38, 13, 0, 10 and 46. Hardly encouraging ahead of a return to Australias side for the T20Is in Sri Lanka. But such is Maxwells talent tthat once he got going in Pallekele he was impossible to stop, his unbeaten 145 from 65 deliveries the second-highest individual score in T20 international history.dddddddddddd It was also Maxwells first hundred in any format - including domestic cricket - for more than a year. If hes given the chance to open once again, Sri Lanka will need some new plans to stop him.Team newsSri Lankas selectors will be tempted to make changes to the attack after their annihilation in the first game. Kasun Rajitha might lose his place to Dasun Shanaka, while there is also the chance that Milinda Siriwardana may be brought in, perhaps for Sachithra Senanayake.Sri Lanka (possible): 1. Tillakaratne Dilshan, 2 Kusal Perera (wk), 3 Dhananjaya de Silva, 4 Dinesh Chandimal (capt), 5 Kusal Mendis, 6 Thisara Perera, 7 Chamara Kapugedera, 8 Sachith Pathirana, 9 Sachithra Senanayake/Milinda Siriwardana, 10 Suranga Lakmal, 11 Dasun Shanaka.Aaron Finch remains unavailable due to his broken finger and George Bailey has flown home, so Matthew Wade will play as a specialist batsman. The only question is whether the attack remains the same. The in-form John Hastings was left out of the first game and surely would be a valuable inclusion, but after the success of the first match the selectors may choose the same bowlers.Australia(possible): 1 David Warner (capt), 2 Glenn Maxwell, 3 Usman Khawaja, 4 Travis Head, 5 Matthew Wade, 6 Moises Henriques, 7 James Faulkner, 8 Peter Nevill (wk), 9 Mitchell Starc, 10 Adam Zampa, 11 Scott Boland.Pitch and conditionsSri Lanka batted first in every ODI of the recent series and only once set Australia a target that was out of reach - at this ground, when they posted 288. There should be plenty of runs in this pitch once again.Stats and triviaIt has been a very poor year for Sri Lanka in T20Is. In 2016 they have played 15 for only three wins - two of which came against Afghanistan and the UAEThe three highest individual scores in T20 internationals now all belong to Australians and two of those - Glenn Maxwells 145* and Shane Watsons 124*, have come in 2016Dilshan will finish his career second on the list of most T20 appearances (behind Shahid Afridi) and second on the list of most runs (behind Brendon McCullum) Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jersyes Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
