    导出博客文章LONDON -- Usain Bolt has backed the International Association of Athletics Federations suspension of Russias track and field athletes and declared himself fit to compete before the Rio Olympics. Thabo Sefolosha Jersey .After the Court of Arbitration for Sport announced it had upheld the ban Thursday, the sprinter made his position clear in a media conference that covered everything from Brand Bolt to the appointment of Jose Mourinho as Manchester Uniteds new manager.Rules are rules, Bolt said. If you have the proof and you get someone, I feel you should take action.If you feel that banning the whole team is the right action then Im all for it. The doping violations in track and field are really getting bad, so if you feel like you need to make a statement, then thumbs-up.Bolt faced the media as a competitor in the Anniversary Games, a Diamond League event being held at the Olympic Stadium in London on Friday and Saturday.He will run in the 200 metres and may well feel a pang of nostalgia after his triple-gold-medal haul at the venue during the 2012 Games.Having arrived late after being drug-tested by the IAAF, Bolt was unequivocal about his fitness.Im feeling good, been training good, Im happy with where I am, the 29-year-old said. My hamstring is good, I have no issue right now. I know Im in good shape.Bolts hamstring problem had forced him to withdraw from the 100m at the Jamaican Olympic trials earlier this month.He said: When I got to the doctor, he said if I had competed [in the trials], I would probably would have torn my hamstring really badly.I made the right decision. My coach always makes sure I put my health first. But I was never really worried because my coach always figures out a way to adjust the programme.I was in pretty good shape before I had to pull out, so I wasnt really worried.It has been seven years since Bolt set the 200m world record of 19.19 seconds, and he is focused on lowering his time.Im happy that I didnt get a really bad setback this season, it was up and down, but I could always train, he said.The competition, energy, work they have to put in to win the 100m in Rio will help my 200m, and thats really my focus, trying to break the 200m world record.Im definitely a tough competitor.Bolt looks forward to re-engaging in his rivalry with Justin Gatlin.The two last raced against each other in Beijing in the 2015 world championships, when Bolt beat Gatlin in the 100m and 200m.Last year Gatlin was just not ready, it was the first time he was being chased. It was hard for him, but this year is not going to be the same, I am in much better shape, so I wont leave it to the last second.Bolts race in Fridays 200m will be his last outing before his final Olympics. He will be chasing a remarkable triple-triple of Games titles.Ill definitely be there, Im excited to go, Bolt said of his Rio aspirations. This is where history is going to be made, Im excited to put on a show for the entire world to see. This is my final Olympics, its a big one.Press Association Sport contributed to this report.

Badenhop was 2-3 with a 3.47 ERA in 63 relief appearances for Milwaukee this season. He is 18-20 in his career with three saves and a 3. LAHAINA, Hawaii -- ??? Jalen Adams drove fearlessly to the rim, dished to open teammates, soared in over taller players to snatch rebounds.The sophomore guard nearly had a triple-double and the Huskies needed nearly every bit of it to hold off a feisty upset-maker.Adams had 25 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds, helping Connecticut survive for a 93-82 victory over Division II Chaminade Tuesday in the Maui Invitational.He did a great job leading our team, UConn coach Kevin Ollie said. He did an unbelievable job finding his teammates, scoring and then when we needed a rebound, he got it.UConn (2-3) had all kinds of trouble with Oklahoma States pressing defense to open the Maui Invitational, turning it over 18 times -- all on Cowboys steals -- in a 98-90 loss.On Day 2, the Huskies had a hard time shaking the deep-shooting Silverswords (2-2), who have had a penchant for knocking off big-name opponents.UConn shot 61 percent and had a 20-point advantage in the paint and 13 more rebounds, yet werent able to pull away from Chaminade until the closing minutes.Rodney Purvis had 23 points and hit three 3-pointers in the final 4 minutes after going hard to the floor.Vance Jackson added 16 for UConn, which was without forward Terry Larrier after he injured his left knee against Oklahoma State in the tournament opener.Everybody was just hungry and wanted to get back and prove we can win and compete in this tournament, said Adams, who made 12 of 17 shots. We definitely didnt come down here to lose.Chaminade has a certain mystique around it in Maui, thanks to a long list of upset victories.The Silverswords were blown out by No. 4 North Carolina in their Maui opener, but used their perimeter shooting to stretch the Huskies on defense and keep them from pulling away.Rohndell Goodwin had 20 points, Sam Daly and Kiran Shastri had 19 each for Chamminade, which made 14 of 32 from 3-point range. Erik McCree Jersey. We were feeling it for a while today, Shastri said.The Silverswords hit 6 of 10 shots to lead 18-13 and, unlike the night, pushed back when a bigger team tried to lean on them.Chaminade trailed by seven, but tied the game at 39-all late in the first half on a layup by Austin Pope and Goodwins short jumper after a turnover on the inbound play.The Silverswords hit 9 of 17 from 3-point range in the first half and were tied with the Huskies at 45-all.Adams carried UConn in the opening 20 minutes with 15 points, eight assists and six rebounds.The Silverswords continued to go right at the Huskies in the second half, dropping in long-range 3-pointers and driving fearlessly to the rim to stay within 61-60 midway through.UConn finally started to gain some separation as the Silverswords started missing shots they had been making all day.The Huskies stretched their lead to 80-71 on Purvis corner 3-pointer with 5? minutes left and added three more to close the Silverswords out.Those late 3-pointers were the difference in the game, Chaminade coach Eric Bovaird said.BIG PICTUREUConn: The Huskies survived the big upset, yet not being able to shake a Division II opponent is not a good sign. Adams has been stellar in Maui, but the Huskies will need more than just him for the fifth-place game and beyond.Chaminade: The Silverswords have had their share of upsets in the Maui Invitational and nearly pulled off another. Keeping up with a big-time program like UConn should do nothing but build confidence for the Silverswords the rest of the season.UP NEXTUConn: Faces No. 13 Oregon in the fifth-place game.Chaminade: Plays in the seventh-place game against Tennessee.
