Sebastian Vettel does not think Ferrari needs to turn the world upside down after a disappointing British Grand Prix, saying the race simply did not suit the team.Vettel could only manage ninth position at Silverstone in a race which saw him spin out on several occasions. Ferrari had hoped to challenge Mercedes coming into the weekend but has lacked performance throughout and was out-qualified by both Red Bulls on Saturday.Vettel started 11th after serving a gearbox change penalty and admitted it was difficult to fight back through the field after his initial spins.It was not an easy race, Vettel said. For sure in these conditions its easy to get it wrong and make a mistake. I think you saw a lot of people going off track, unfortunately I was one that went off track and spun. So that lost us a lot of time but I think overall it was quite tricky with the conditions until the end with a dry line and wet patches here and there. So I think the fact that then I was stuck in traffic for some laps doesnt help with looking after tyres etc. So you lose the rhythm a little.As a result you can see we werent quick enough to challenge for a podium this weekend, so theres plenty of things for us to understand and learn. In this regard I think it has been a weak race for us but I dont think we need tto turn the world upside down. Nike Free 4.0 Flyknit Womens. We know the car that we have and I think if you look at the performance yesterday it was more or less in line. Again, its not the most competitive weekend for us, but for sure today we seemed to lose a little bit compared to the people ahead.Vettels ninth could have become tenth because of a five-second time penalty incurred after forcing Felipe Massa wide at Turn 2, though he managed to build a big enough gap to Daniil Kvyat to hold the position. Vettel felt the penalty was harsh.Not much to say. I was on the inside, he went a little bit wide at Turn 1, he was on the inside for Turn 3. We basically hit the brakes at the same time, I was trying to turn in and every time I tried to turn in I lost the car, lost the car, lost the car. So I had to open up and went wide myself.Obviously there was no intention to force him off the track because I was going off the track as well so it wasnt something that I controlled, but for some reason the stewards took the view that I did that on purpose and I got the penalty. But I think it was a racing incident.The incident also earned Vettel two penalty points on his superlicence.

CALGARY, Alberta -- Jamie Benn snapped out of an early season slump in a big way Thursday night. Air Max 98 Jaune Bleu .The Dallas Stars captain ended a nine-game scoring drought with two goals, including the game-winner, in a 4-2 victory over the struggling Calgary Flames.It seems like I go through a streak like that every year. It just so happened to come pretty early this year, said Benn, who only had two goals in his first 13 games after a career-best 41 last season.When an offensive-zone penalty by Alex Chiasson put the Stars on the power play early in the third with the score tied, it took less than a minute for Dallas to convert with Benn firing a feed from Tyler Seguin past Brian Elliott to make it 3-2.He was really buzzing out there tonight, Seguin said. Thats what we needed. We needed a leader, especially our captain, to lead the way after the embarrassing loss we had the other night.The Stars were routed 8-2 on Tuesday in Winnipeg, to extend their winless skid to five games.We all knew that eventually he would come out of it. But I thought tonight, obviously, it was the best game hes played in a while, Dallas coach Lindy Ruff said. He came out physical. He started with that. I thought he was skating and going through people.Special teams was the story with Dallas converting on its lone third-period power play and Calgary failing to score on its one chance, which came with just over 4 minutes remaining.The Stars finished 1 for 3 with the extra man while Calgary was 0 for 2. Its become a familiar story line for the Flames with the power play ranked 30th and the penalty kill 29th.Three mistakes, said Flames coach Glen Gulutzan, when asked about the go-ahead goal. Make two, its probably going to end up in your net. You make three and its going to end up in your net.Captain Mark Giordano says its on the players to improve their performance.Weve talked about it. The guys, who are playing PP and PK, weve got to get the job done, he said.Lauri Korpikoski and Antoine Roussel, with an empty-netter, also scored for Dallas (5-6-3). The Stars five-game trip continues Friday in Edmonton.Johnny Gaudreau scored both goals for Calgary (5-9-1). The Flames have lost five of six overall.Were finding ways to lose, Gulutzan said. We need somebody now to step up and find a way to win and stop playing the victim.With the Flames trailing 2-0, Gaudreau came out flying to start the second, breaking a six-game scoring drought with his third and fourth goals on his first two shifts to pull Calgary even.It was nice to find the net finally, said Gaudreau, who scored 30 goals in his sophomore season. Me, (Monahan) and (Chiasson) played a good 60 minutes tonight. We were in their zone most of the night.Calgary opened the game taking the play to the Stars and running up an 8-1 lead on the shot clock. But they could not beat Lehtonen and at 12:31, Korpiskoski snapped a shot into the top corner.Benn made it 2-0 3 minutes later when the entire slot opened up before him and he took the puck to the net, zipping a backhand past Elliott.It was a better night for Kari Lehtonen after giving up four goals on 11 shots against the Jets. He finished with 29 saves to improve to 2-4-2.Elliott, who had 18 saves, fell to 3-7-0.Game notes Calgary is 0 for 26 with the extra man at home. ... Gaudreaus parents were in the crowd, having just flown in from New Jersey. ... Flames rookie Matthew Tkachuk did play after getting stitches in his hand at practice on Wednesday. Hes day to day. ... Stars D Jamie Oleksiak was in the lineup after being a healthy scratch the past nine games.UP NEXT:Stars: Visit Edmonton on Friday.Flames: Host the New York Rangers on Saturday.

CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox return home from a nine-game road trip to face the Oakland Athletics on Friday night.The homecoming could not have arrived soon enough for the up-and-down White Sox (57-63). Manager Robin Venturas club is coming off an uninspiring 4-5 road trip, which concluded with a ninth-inning loss Thursday night to the rival Cleveland Indians.Definitely an empty feeling, White Sox left-hander Carlos Rodon told the Chicago Sun-Times. All of us are playing hard, giving 100 percent. We are leaving it all out there and it just doesnt happen.Meanwhile, Oakland (52-69) has lost five consecutive games, including a three-game sweep at the hands of the Texas Rangers earlier this week. The Athletics have scored two runs or fewer in seven of the last 13 games, and their minus-104 run differential is worst in the American League.With the postseason well out of reach, Oakland has turned its focus toward developing its young talent in the final stretch of the season. Earlier this week, the Athletics promoted infield prospect Chad Pinder from Triple-A Nashville. Pinder hit .258 with 14 home runs and 51 RBI in 107 games in the minor leagues this season and could see time at second base, shortstop and third base.He swings the bat well, has got some power, and we saw that in spring, Oakland manager Bob Melvin told Its great that he gets an opportunity.Right-hander James Shields (5-14, 5.78 ERA) will start for Chicago. The 34-year-old is mired in the worst statistical season of his career -- and one of the most bizarre seasons in the majors.In four starts from May 31 to June 18, Shields surrendered a mind-boggling 331 earned runs in 11 1/3 innings to go 1/3 with a 24. Air Max 98 Qs Thunder Blue. 2 ERA. He recovered nicely in his next seven starts, during which time he posted a 2.11 ERA and limited hitters to a .215 batting average.Then the bottom fell out yet again. In his past three starts, opponents have rocked Shields for 21 earned runs in 9 1/3 innings. He is 1-2 with a 20.25 ERA during that span.Will Fridays start mark the start of another turnaround? Or yet another disastrous outing?Shields has fared well against the Athletics in his career. In 15 starts, he is 6-4 with a 3.82 ERA. He has not faced Oakland since 2014, when he went 1-0 with a 3.21 ERA in two starts as a member of the Kansas City Royals.For Oakland, right-hander Kendall Graveman (8-8, 4.37 ERA) will make his 24th start of the season. The 25-year-old Mississippi State alum is trending in a much better direction than Shields. He is 7-2 with a 3.83 ERA in his past 14 starts after opening the year 1-6 with a 5.36 ERA. However, Graveman gave up four runs in six innings to sustain the loss in his most recent outing Saturday against the Seattle Mariners.Graveman has faced the White Sox once in his career. He drew the loss after allowing two runs on three hits in 5 1/3 innings on April 7. White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu stung Graveman for a two-run home run in the sixth inning that day.Abreu will look to feast against Graveman once again Friday night. The White Sox slugger has hit safely in 13 of his 15 games in August, including six multiple-hit performances.

They just need to put more into the net. And theyre running out of time. Pittsburgh forced Boston goalie Tuukka Rask to make 53 saves, but the Bruins won 2-1 in double overtime on Wednesday night for a 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals. The Penguins must keep firing pucks at Rask, forward Pascal Dupuis said Thursday, and "with the firepower that we have on our team, eventually they will go in." If "eventually" doesnt come Friday night, their season will be over in stunning fashion. The team of Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and other top offensive threats will have been swept in the best-of-seven series. It would be a shocking end to a season in which the Penguins led the NHL in scoring, and averaged 4.27 goals per game in their first two playoff series, but have been outscored 11-2 in the three losses to the Bruins. Only three teams have overcome 3-0 playoff deficits. The Penguins know the odds are stacked heavily against them but are trying to ignore that. "I think if youre betting right now, youre not betting on the Penguins down 3-0," said forward Brandon Sutter, who has one of their two goals. "But were not going to quit. The percentages are, obviously, against us, but weve got a good team." The top-seeded Penguins were dominated by the fourth-seeded Bruins in the first two games, losing 3-0 and 6-1. But in Game 3, they outplayed Boston for much of regulation. "We need to be the team who we believe we are and go back to whats made us successful," forward Matt Cooke said. "Obviously, the result wasnt there, but the effort and determination and style of play was more like who we are." The Bruins won when Patrice Bergeron, covered closely by defenceman Brooks Orpik, redirected Brad Marchands pass behind goalie Tomas Vokoun at 15:19 of the second overtime. An inch or two either way, and the pass might have missed Bergerons stick or his shot could have gone wide of the net. "He drove the net. He outbattled the guy," said Bruins centre David Krejci, the leading scorer in the playoffs. "It looked pretty simple, but its tough when you go to the net to keep your stick on the ice and he managed to do that and got a big goal." But the Bruins had their worst game of the series. They allowed too many shots, gave the puck away too often and didnt score in regulation after Krejci connectted just 1:42 into the first period. Air Max 97 Noir Et Doré. "Weve got to play a better game," Boston coach Claude Julien said. "We might have won the game, but were certainly not pleased with the way we played. We know they played better, but I dont think we did, and weve got to make sure were at the top of our game (Friday)." The last team to lose a series after going up 3-0 was the Bruins in the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Philadelphia Flyers in 2010. This year, Boston led Toronto 3-1 in the first round then lost the next two games and trailed 4-1 with 11 minutes left in the third period of Game 7 before winning 5-4 in overtime. In the next round, the Bruins led the New York Rangers 3-0, lost Game 4, then won Game 5. "Its not over until you close that fourth (win) out," Bostons Johnny Boychuk said. "At any point, the series can switch." And the Bruins dont want to go back to Pittsburgh for Game 5 on Sunday night. "You just have to have that killer instinct and just forget what happened in the past three games and just focus on that one game," defenceman Dennis Seidenberg said. "Whenever we play in the moment we play our best hockey." Sidney Crosbys hockey has been far from his best. The NHL scoring leader has no goals and no assists in the series. His turnover led to Marchands goal just 28 seconds into Game 2. "You just have to trust your game and know that when you absolutely need it the most, everyone is going to show up and bring it and kind of let everything happen," said Crosby, Pittsburghs captain. "I thought again (Wednesday) we did a lot of good things and probably deserved better." The Penguins have been scoreless on the power play in the series. But one of the Bruins top penalty killers, centre Gregory Campbell, is sidelined for the playoffs after breaking his right leg when he dove and blocked a shot by Malkin in the second period on Wednesday. Without him, the Bruins must "focus in a little bit more and making sure were taking care of the pucks," defenceman Torey Krug said. But the Penguins need to score more whether theyre on the power play or at even strength. And Wednesdays game showed that theyre getting closer to doing that. "On any given night, some of the chances we had go in and it could be five or six goals," Sutter said. "By no means are we going to panic about scoring goals."

Four more years. Cheap Nike Air Max 98 .The Hockeyroos long wait to add to their three Olympic gold medals just got longer.Australias 4-2 belting at the hands of New Zealand in the quarterfinals of the womens hockey competition ended a campaign that never really got going.The result also means Australia will head to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics having not won a Games medal since their gold at Sydney in 2000.Captain Madonna Blyth, Australias most-capped female player with 342 appearances, announced shortly after the match this would be her final Olympics.The 30-year-old from Brisbane stopped short of declaring her retirement, but admitted even the Commonwealth Games in 2018 on the Gold Coast would be a stretch.I put everything I had over the last six months into the lead-up to Rio, always knowing that this would be it, Blyth said.Its a little bit of a disappointing way to go out, but thats just the way it goes sometimes, you cant always have the fairytale finishes when you want them.The world No.3 Hockeyroos were behind after seven minutes when Anita McLaren struck for the Black Sticks Women before Kelsey Smith deflected in from a penalty corner to give New Zealand a 2-0 lead at halftime.Australia got one back through Kathryn Slattery in the third quarter which was quickly cancelled out by Gemma Flynn before Charlotte Harrison hit the back of the net for the world No.4 side just before the end of the term.Slattery scored a late goal to give her a double in hot conditions in Deodoro.Its very disappointing for our girls considering we played some really good hockey but when it comes down to these games, youve got to be at your best or you get punished, Blyth said.Coach Adam Commens, who announced before Rio he was stepping down from the role for family reasons, said the early goal was crucial.The scoreboard pressure changes the game. The Kiwis got their first chance ... it was a penalty corner, and they put it away, he said.The coach believes the future is bright for the Hockeyroos who had 12 debutantes in Brazil.I was hopeful theyd be able to do it in Rio but we were probably found a little bit short against a little bit more experienced New Zealand side, he said.

On Wednesday morning CAS confirmed Platini has filed his appeal with them.The two men were banned in December over a disloyal payment of £1.3m between them in 2011 - made without a written FIFA contract - when both claimed they had a verbal agreement for FIFA to pay Platini an additional salary for his work as Blatters presidential adviser from 1999-2002.While their appeals were rejected, the committee decided their work in football should deserve appropriate recognition, and denied an attempt by FIFA ethics prosecutors to have the pair banned for life.

Oscar Valdez is one of boxings top rising stars. Camiseta William Tesillo . He won a vacant featherweight world title, and accomplished what most expected of the two-time Mexican Olympian, when he knocked out Matias Adrian Rueda in the second round on July 23.Certainly, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum, who signed Valdez after the 2012 Olympics, expected him to win a world title. But as far as Arum is concerned, it was only the beginning of what he envisions will become a great career.Arum has promoted a whos who of superstars during his 50 years in the boxing business, including many prominent Mexican fighters, and he has helped build them into attractions and champions. He views Valdez -- an enormously talented fighter with a fan-friendly style, outgoing personality and bilingual skills -- as the next one.Were going to make him a huge star in Mexico and in the border cities in the United States, like Tucson, where he grew up, Phoenix and San Diego. We think theres a big, big upside for him, Arum said.With the 126-pound world title in hand, Valdez will make his first defense against mandatory challenger Hiroshige Osawa in one of four world title fights on Nov. 5 (Top Rank PPV, 9 p.m. ET) on the Manny Pacquiao-Jessie Vargas card at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.Being given a spot on Pacquiaos undercard is a big deal for any young fighter, and the 25-year-old Valdez knows it.It means a lot to me, Valdez said. I get excited when I fight on these big cards. Im very grateful to Bob Arum for putting me on a big show like this. Ive always heard the first title defense is the hardest. Ive heard this from ex-champions like Julio Cesar Chavez [Sr.]. The hard thing is not getting there and winning a title. The hard thing is maintaining your championship. I am motivated, but its even more motivation for me being on great cards like this.I grew up seeing Pacquiao fight. He was in so many great fights. And now I am on his card and I got something to show my people -- that Im on this big card. Everybody gets excited back home. Its nothing but motivation for me.Valdez (20-0, 18 KOs) does not know much about Osawa (30-3-4, 19 KOs) of Japan, who will be facing the first notable opponent of his career. Valdez, however, said that when he knew he would be facing Osawa, 31, he went to YouTube and watched some video of him.I didnt really know much about him so I started looking at him to see what kind of fighter he is, Valdez said. He has a longer reach than me so we are sparring guys taller than me. He comes forward, doesnt go back, and he tries to knock out his opponent. But one thing I know about Japanese fighters is they have heart. Im not trying to think Im knocking this guy out in the first or second round. I will try not to be overconfident. Being smart is important.Arum has huge hopes for Valdez.We think we can make him a bigger star than [Erik] Morales or [Marco Antonio] Barrera, Arum said of the Mexican stars who waged an epic trilogy and had some of their greatest fights at featherweight. Our goal is to make him like a successor to Morales and Barrera. We think he has the ability and personality, and he will have somewhat bigger crossover appeal because of the fact that he is fluent in English, where the other two werent.One of the most successful promotional jobs of Arums career in terms of a Mexican fighter was with Morales. Arum was involved in a few Barrera fights over the years, but he promoted Morales for most of his career, including all three fights with Barrera, and helped build Morales into one of the top fighters in boxing. Morales headlined several successful pay-per-view cards, won world titles in four weight divisions, and became a fan favorite. He will be eligible to appear on the International Boxing Hall of Fame ballot for the first time next fall and is a shoe-in to be elected.Arum wants to follow a similar path with Valdez, who was born in Mexico and spent most of his childhood living in Tucson, Arizona, which he considers a second home and where his mother still lives, before moving back to his familys hometown of Nogales, just over the border, where his father, grandmother and other family members live.Arum said he has talked with Tucson city officials and officials from Casino Del Sol, which is in Tucson and has hosted a number of boxing events, about hosting future Valdez fights at the casino and the citys convention center.We also hope to have Oscar fight in Mexico City and hope to have him fight in Tijuana [Morales hometown], Arum said. We know what we are doing. If hes as good as we think, he can fight three or four times a year, and we can build a business around this kid.Its all music to Valdezs ears. When told that Arum wants to handle the young fighters career as he handled Morales, Valdez was in awe, sounding somewhat stunned to hear it. The reason: Morales is Valdezs boxing idol.In fact, the first time Valdez went to Las Vegas to see a fight was as a 13-year-old in 2004. He went to see Morales unify junior lightweight titles in a decision win against Carlos Hernandez at the MGM Grand. In 2008, Valdez, then a top amateur, got a chance to meet Morales at a tournament and tell him that he was his favorite fighter.Now, all these years later, Valdez relishes that Arum is comparing them.My idol has always been Erik Morales, Valdez said. By doing half of what he did would mean a lot of to me. Its an honor that Bob would say a thing like that. He has been in this game for so long and knows his boxing, so it means I am doing something right. Ill do my part and work hard in the gym. I love boxing. And I know Bob Arum and Top Rank will do their job. One thing they know is that I want to be considered one of the best.I want to be known when they mention the great Mexican fighters. I want to be on that list with Chavez, Morales, Barrera and [Juan Manuel] Marquez. Camiseta Farid Diaz . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third.

A former member of the United States womens gymnastics team filed a civil lawsuit Thursday against Dr. Nike Shox Sale . Larry Nassar in California Superior Court, claiming the long-time team doctor for USA Gymnastics sexually assaulted her during medical exams and that the legendary former coaches, Bela and Marta Karolyi, failed to protect her and engaged in their own pattern of physical and emotional abuse. The suit also claims that top USA Gymnastics officials had wide-ranging knowledge of the abuse, but for years concealed and ignored it, enabling both Nassar and the Karolyis.The claims against Nassar closely echo those made by a second former gymnast, a 2000 Olympic medalist, who sued Nassar and others in early September. Both suits claim Nassar sexually assaulted multiple team members, though the previous suit did not include specific claims against the Karolyis. ?The woman who sued Thursday, now 24, was a member of the United States womens national team from 2004 to 2010, from ages 12-18, and is identified in the lawsuit under the alias Jane Doe. ?The defendants listed in the lawsuit, filed in California Superior Court in Los Angeles County, also include the Karolyis, USA Gymnastics, its current president Steve Penny, past president Robert Colarossi, and the gymnasts own private coaches, Galina Marinova and Artur Akopyan.The sexual abuse is alleged to have occurred at the famed Karolyi Ranch in Huntsville, Texas, roughly an hour north of Houston. Since 2001, the ranch has served as the training facility for the U.S. womens national gymnastics team.The lawsuit claims Nassar would interact with the teenager under the guise of providing her care and treatments necessary for her to compete as a world-class, Olympic medal-winning gymnast. According to the suit, the doctor told her about the need to do an intravaginal adjustment, a fictitious guise where Nassar would digitally penetrate Plaintiffs vagina in order to adjust her bones. This intravaginal adjustment was done without gloves, lubricant, and/or a chaperone, and was done for [Nassars] own sexual gratification. ?The lawsuit also alleges that Bela and Marta Karolyi turned a blind-eye to Nassars sexual abuse of children at the ranch and instituted a regime of intimidation and fear at the ranch for the minor children under their custody.The lawsuit further accuses Bela and Marta Karolyi of: ?Striking the gymnasts, scratching them until they bled and encouraging parents to hit their children.Depriving gymnasts of food and water and searching the gymnasts rooms to find and confiscate hidden food.?Screaming obscenities at the gymnasts; telling them that they were fat; and requiring them to strip to their underwear so that their physical appearance could be judged in front of their peers. ?Reached on the phone Thursday at her ranch in Texas, Marta Karolyi told Outside the Lines, If its any legal matter, I have no comment on that. She declined to say anything further.USA Gymnastics, when reached Thursday, provided the following statement:USA Gymnastics denies the allegations against it in this latest lawsuit. As we have made clear, when USA Gymnastics first learned of athlete concerns regarding Dr. Nassar, we dismissed him from further involvement and reported those concerns to the FBI. Still, the allegations that have been made are troubling. USA Gymnastics is committed to promoting a safe environment for our athletes. Due to the pending litigation and ongoing investigation, however, we are unable to comment further.The other defendants, including Nassar, could not immediately be reached for comment.The lawsuit says Nassar, as a doctor, and USA Gymnastics, as his employer, were obligated to report such abusive behavior.What were really saying is the ranch was a toxic environment for these kids and a perfect environment for a pedophile to flourish, said John Manly, the attorney for both of the former U.S. gymnasts who have sued Nassar.[Bela and Marta Karolyi] had an obligation to make sure their environment was safe and they failed miserably. These were children and they were left alone with this man, who turned out to be a sexual predator, Manly added.USA Gymnastics announced in July that it had purchased the ranch from the Karolyis, which since 2011 has been known as the USA Gymnastics National Team Training Center at the Karolyi Ranch. Athletes of all ages and skill levels are impacted by the prestige and tradition embodied at the Ranch, and we are excited to continue the legacy of success, USA Gymnastics said in a press release announcing the purchase.The lawsuit alleges the Karolyis allowed Nassar to have unfettered and secluded access to minor children, including the Plaintiff, in the childrens living and sleeping quarters, a violation of USA Gymnastics own policies.Nassar would pre-sexually groom these minor children into believing that he was their friend and confidant, the lawsuit alleges, in contrast to the oppressive and abusive treatment by [the Karolyis], sneaking the gymnasts food, candy and other contraband to build trust.He built this relationship in order to sexually abuse these minors, including the Plaintiff, the lawsuit alleges.The Karolyis enabled Nassar, according to the lawsuit, by engaging essentially in a quid pro quo: by turning a blind eye to Nassars sexual abuse of children at the ranch, the lawsuit claims, they ensured that he would never report their abuses.Bela and Marta Karolyi kept Nassar on because he was willing to keep their secrets, and when you have secrets in an environment with children, thats where pedophiles flourish, Manly said.The lawsuit also alleges that Robert Colarossi, USA Gymnastics president from 1998 to 2005, and Steve Penny, the organizations president since 2005, oversaw a wide-ranging, calculated concealment of numerous instances, complaints, and allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct.Bela Karolyi, the former Romanian gymnastics coach, first gained fame for training 1976 gold medalist Nadia Comaneci. After defecting to the United States with his wife Marta in 1981, Karolyi went on to train a string of American Olympic gold medalists, beginning with Mary Lou Retton in 1984.He was named U.S. National Team Coordinator in 1999, a position his wife, Marta, later assumed in 2001 until her retirement after the Rio Olympics. Marta was widely praised during the recent summer games for building the U.S. women into a powerhouse; the squad brought home nine medals from Rio, including the all-around team gold.Nassar, 53, an osteopathic physician, worked with the U.S. womens gymnastics team from 1986 to 2015, first as a trainer and then, starting in 1996, as team doctor. He was a fixture at the Karolyis ranch, where he treated dozens of elite-level gymnasts.Nassar was fired by USA Gymnastics in the summer of 2015 after officials received complaints of sexual misconduct during medical exams.Immediately after learning of athlete concerns about Dr. Nassar in the summer of 2015, Steve Penny, president and CEO of USA Gymnastics, notified law enforcement, USA Gymnastics said in a statement released last month. We also relieved Dr. Nassar of his duties, and he ceased to be affiliated with USA Gymnastics.Penny would not comment to Outside the Lines, but a spokeswoman for USA Gymnastics acknowledged Penny reported the allegations against Nassar to the FBI.Despite being released by USA Gymnastics, Nassar continued to practice medicine at his alma mater, Michigan State University, where hed worked as a faculty member and treating clinician since Augu

Rather than ease Keith Drydens workload, the veteran trainer says he is working harder than ever since going into partnership with Scott Collings. Fernando Valenzuela Jersey .Since teaming up at the start of the season, Dryden and Collings have trained 14 winners and will chase their first Sydney victory with Beau Tirage in Wednesdays Pro-Ride Handicap (1000m) at Warwick Farm.Its going really well. I think were doing more now than we ever did, Dryden said.He comes up with ideas, Ive got ideas. It works in pretty easily like that.The only hard and fast rule is Dryden chooses jockeys for horses trained out of Canberra where he is based and Collings picks riders for horses trained at Goulburn.The pair will both be at Warwick Farm to help handle lively sprinter Beau Tirage.Hes a bit of handful, Dryden said.For some reason or another his first run hes fresh and hes a pretty strong big boy.Despite his good first-up record of two wins from three starts, Dryden is not expecting too much from Beau Tirage after almost six months away from racing.Im happy with the horse hes going nicely, but hell probably benefit from the run, Dryden said.Theres nothing like a bit of match conditioning.With apprentice jockey Andrew Adkins two-kilogram claim, Beau Tirage gets in with 57kg.Dryden believes it is a harsh weight for a horse with three country wins to his name from 12 starts.I cant start him in the bush and in Sydney Im racing against the better horses and meeting them at their terms, Dryden said.Im no fan of the benchmark system.Beau Tirage was bought as a weanling by Jamie Middleton of Redbank North Stud.He races him in partnership with Mike and Bev Abbott and Drydens former vet Kim Jacobs.Mike Abbotts wife is in a wheelchair and she just loves this horse, Dryden said.I take him to the metropolitan meetings as often as I can and then if theyve got to make a trip they do but I try to bring him down to them if I can.Beau Tirage is the $7 second favourite behind the Peter and Paul Snowden-trained Dongxing Princess who is at $5. Enrique Hernandez Jersey . Team physician Dr. Steve Traina performed the surgery Friday. Robinson was injured in a spill underneath the Nuggets basket during the first quarter of Wednesday nights loss to the Charlotte Bobcats. Logan Forsythe Jersey . The injury bothered Bledsoe in the Suns victory over the Clippers on Monday and he sat out the teams home loss to Memphis on Thursday night. . Kiriasis and brakeman Franziska Fritz finished two runs in one minute 55.41 seconds -- a mere 0.01 seconds ahead of Meyers and Lolo Jones, who likely bolstered her Olympic hopes by helping give USA-1 a huge push in the second heat. ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Inside linebacker Todd Davis says hes optimistic hell play against New England this weekend after returning to practice Friday on a limited basis.I was encouraged by what I saw, coach Gary Kubiak said. Well see how he comes out of it in the morning and move him around again tomorrow. I think its kind of going exactly like we thought it was going to go leading up to game time. It was encouraging today.Davis was officially listed as 50-50 with a strained oblique that knocked him out of last weeks game at Tennessee. But he said, I felt solid. Im excited for Sunday and I think Im going to be ready.Fellow inside linebacker Brandon Marshall said he hopes to play at Kansas City next week after being ruled out against the Patriots. This will be the second straight game hes missed since aggravating a pulled left hamstring at Jacksonville on Dec. 4.Corey Nelson will start in place of Marshall when the Broncos (8-5) host the Patriots (11-2) , and Zaire Anderson is prepared to play significant snaps even if Davis is a go.Im preparing like Im starting, said Anderson, who drew praise for his five-tackle performance last week after Davis went out,He got thrown in there last week and we played our best half, Kubiak said.Still, given Denvers strong pass rush and stout secondary, Tom Brady and the Patriots are expected to go after Denvers inside linebackers by sending their tight ends and running backs on intermediate routes over the middle.They tried to test the linebackers last year, so I definitely could see them doing it again, said Davis, adding his injury doesnt limit him defending the pass or run.The Broncos placed long snapper Casey Kreiter, whos missed the last month with a strained calf, on injured reserve Friday and promoted rookie outside linebacker Vontarrius Dora from their practice squad.His injury just hasnt responded, said Kubiak, who had carried two long snappers on his 53-man roster since Nov. 25 when nine-year veteran free agent Thomas Gafford was signed.Congratulations to Dora. The kid has done a great job, so he gets rewarded. I thinnk theres a place for him. Kenta Maeda Jersey. You may see him before this year is out. Hes got a bright future.Dora (6-4, 256 pounds) had a spectacular training camp after going undrafted out of Louisiana Tech. He had 10 tackles, eight of them solo, two sacks and a forced fumble for Denver in the preseason.Offensive coordinator Rick Dennison missed practice all week because of a family matter but Kubiak said that wont affect the play-calling Sunday. Kubiak and QB coach Greg Knapp were still in touch with Dennison throughout the week as they installed the game plan.Weve met every night even though hes not here, Kubiak said.The Broncos have been a slow-starting team, scoring just 23 first-quarter points compared to New Englands league-best 103.The Broncos know they have to buck that trend Sunday.Its important all of the time, Kubiak said. We know weve struggled. When we have started well, weve played pretty well. When you look at this team, youre playing a team that since Tom has come back, theyre the top scoring team in football and yet, they dont give up points. Points and possessions are a premium. Red zone possessions are a premium. If you go back to our two games last year, we played some great red zone defense. Offensively, we did a good job in the red zone.Game notes It was lucky, pass rusher Shaq Barrett said of his backward, overhead, half-court shot at the Nuggets game Thursday night. ... Frigid temperatures are forecast for kickoff Sunday, but Brandon McManus, who missed a 62-yarder in overtime against Kansas City on a cold November night, said that doesnt necessarily cut down the kickers range. Technically, it should, he said. The balls will continue to get deflated throughout the game. As long as Im able to stay warm, Ill still be able to kick from long distances.---For more NFL coverage: and Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: Jerseys From China Cheap Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2019 Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Authentic Jerseys ' ' '
