    导出博客文章RIO DE JANEIRO -- The repeat one-two American finish in the triple jump, the Jamaican gold medal in hurdles and Jenny Simpsons unprecedented bronze in the 1,500 meters were only part of the story in Olympic track and field Tuesday -- and maybe not the best part. Authentic Jordan Akins Jersey .The midpoint of the nine-day program at Olympic Stadium was a day for diamond rings and making friends, a one-of-a-kind Russian hello and a surprising Brazilian farewell. And, of course, a daily dose of doping news that was more than offset by a speedy cameo from Usain Bolt.Bolt was on the track early for his 200-meter qualifying heat -- a no-fuss 20.28-second ramble around the curve that barely raised his blood pressure.Im not an early-morning person, Bolt proclaimed, shortly after winning his heat, which actually started at the crack of 12:46 p.m.But morning seemed like the perfect time for American Will Claye to put an exclamation point on one of his greatest moments. Newly minted with his second straight Olympic silver medal in the triple jump -- countryman Christian Taylor won gold, also just as in 2012 -- Clay clambered over the barrier separating the track from the stands, climbed a few rows to meet his girlfriend, bent down on one knee and popped the question.Queen Harrison, an Olympic hurdler in 2008, said yes.When I woke up this morning, I was like, `Todays going to be the best day of my life, Claye said.Omar McLeod certainly felt the same.His win in 13.05 seconds over the 110-meter hurdles in the evenings final event made it three gold medals on the straightaway for Jamaica so far. He beat Orlando Ortega of Spain by .12 seconds. Dimitri Bascou of France took third, and University of Oregon football player Devon Allen finished fifth.They harness medals, McLeod said of his countrys sprint stars. You want to do the same thing. Its contagious. You want to feel how it feels. I felt how it feels.In the evenings other big race, Faith Kipyegon of Kenya finished the womens 1,500 meters in 4 minutes, 8.92 seconds to beat out Genzebe Dibaba of Ethiopia, a flip-flop from last years world championships. Simpson took bronze to become the first American woman to medal in the event.Hopefully, every American watching my race tonight, I want them to think they can take a small piece of ownership in this medal, Simpson said.Other gold medalists were high jumper Derek Drouin of Canada and discus thrower Sandra Perkovic of Croatia, who twice was a single throw from elimination but came through both times and defended her Olympic title.Yet, like many of the best moments on this emotion-packed day, there were no medals on the line when long jumper Darya Klishina finally showed up at the Olympics. During warmups, Klishina unzipped her jacket and revealed a red shirt with the word Russia emblazoned in bright white lettering. Shes the only competitor wearing that uniform at this stadium, due to a doping scandal that led to the ban of Russias other 67 track and field entrants.Never introduced by the PA announcer or acknowledged in any way -- booing or cheering -- by the crowd, Klishina jumped 6.64 meters to make it through qualifying and will have a chance for a medal Wednesday.Last week, it was a really tough and really hard week for me mentally . I was waiting for the decision and I could not practice, I just did warmup, she said. I would like to have a big Russian team around me, as usual, but unfortunately Im here alone, and this is a great responsibility.But there was more bad news for the Russians. Around the time the evening session began, the International Olympic Committee stripped the countrys 2008 womens 4x100 relay team of its gold medal, saying one of the sprinters tested positive in one of the many samples being reanalyzed this summer.Back on the field, the sparse morning crowd saw one shocker: Brazilian Fabiana Murer was expected to contend for a pole vault medal, which would have gone nicely with the surprise gold that Thiago Braz da Silva won in the mens competition the night before. But Murer, the silver medalist at the world championships last year, couldnt clear 4.55 meters in her first three attempts and was gone before noon.Da Silvas return to the stadium for the medals ceremony reignited an ugly episode from the previous night. The French runner-up, Renaud Lavillenie, was roundly booed when his name was announced for the silver medal, much the way he heard jeers the night before as he prepared for the jump that decided the meet. The French press attache said Lavillenie was in tears afterward.Still, over the rest of the day, the Olympic spirit was alive and well, and no story told it better than this:Midway through womens 5,000-meter qualifying, American Abbey DAgostino and New Zealander Nikki Hamblin got tangled and fell hard onto the track.Hamblin stayed down, dazed. DAgostino popped back up. But instead of forging ahead, she walked over to Hamblin, put a hand on her shoulder and said, Get up. We have to finish this, then hoisted her to her feet to restart the run.Turned out, DAgostino took the worst of it. She told Hamblin to run ahead, and when Hamblin reached the finish, she waited for her new friend. They exchanged a warm hug before the American got carted off in a wheelchair.Im never going to forget that moment, Hamblin said. When someone asks me what happened in Rio in 20 years time, thats my story.Hours later, race officials sent out a simple alert: The Track Referee, after examining the video of the race, was advancing both women into Fridays final. They offered no explanation. They really didnt have to. Texans Jerseys Online .Y. -- Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo had little trouble picking up his first shutout of the season against a Buffalo Sabres team thats having trouble scoring goals. Authentic Duke Ejiofor Jersey . After a lengthy wait, persistent rain finally forced the postponement of the Nationals game against the Miami Marlins on Saturday night. The teams, and a few thousand fans, waited nearly four hours from the 7:05 scheduled start time before an announcement was made shortly before 11 p. http://www.cheaptexansjerseysauthentic.com/?tag=authentic-jermaine-kelly-jersey . The 31-year-old Spain midfielder hasnt played since Madrid lost in the Copa del Rey final to Atletico Madrid in May due to back and foot injuries. SEATTLE -- Chris Petersen would like this to be all about what David Shaw has done in building Stanford into the class of the Pac-12 Conference.Stanfords an awesome program. Ill start with that -- program, Washingtons coach said this week. This isnt just an awesome team. Theyve had an awesome program for a while now. They know how to do it.In reality, this is all about No. 10 Washington when the Huskies (4-0, 1-0 Pac-12) face No. 7 Stanford on Friday night. Now in his third season in charge at Washington, is Petersen ready to have the Huskies enter the national conversation the same way his Boise State teams did when they were at their peak?Because if the Huskies knock off Stanford (3-0, 2-0) and take command of the Pac-12 North race, they wont just be in contention for a conference crown. Washington would immediately join a loftier conversation.This is a rare opportunity for Washington. Its just the fourth matchup of AP Top 10 teams ever at Husky Stadium and the first since the second-ranked Huskies were taken down by No. 7 Nebraska 19 years ago.It comes with all the trappings of a big game that have become standard for Stanford: prime-time national television audience; sellout crowd; star players all over the field.Obviously, it would be kind of ignorant to say theyre not the team to beat a little bit right now in the Pac-12, Washington quarterback Jake Browning said.No player is likely to shine brighter than Stanfords Christian McCaffrey, who was held to only 109 yards rushing by Washington last year, but made up for the lack of running production by catching five passes for 112 yards and a touchdown, and having 79 yards in kick returns to finish with exactly 300 all-purpose yards in the 31-14 win.McCaffrey is coming off a relatively quiet performance in last weeks comeback win over UCLA, rushing for 138 yards but only catching two passes for 13 yards.We are unbelievably spoiled that when this kid doesnt get 300 yards of total offense we say he got bottled up, Shaw said. He was phenomenal. He was phenomenal. Those 2-yard runs became 7-yard runs. Those 8-yard runs became 12-yard runs.The bigger concern for Stanford is who will be misssing. Texans Jerseys China. The Cardinal will be without starting cornerbacks Quenton Meeks and Alijah Holder, starting wide receiver Francis Owusu and starting fullback Daniel Marx.Here are other things to watch as the Huskies and Cardinal meet for the 87th time with the series tied 41-41-4:MR. BURNS: Which Ryan Burns will show up for Stanford? The quarterback who was 5 of 8 for 66 yards passing on Stanfords final offensive drive as the Cardinal took the lead over UCLA, or the one who was 8 of 17 for 71 yards and an interception for the first 3 + quarters? Washingtons secondary is among the best in the country, led by safety Budda Baker, and will likely challenge Burns to beat them through the air with all the attention McCaffrey will receive.MONTLAKE JAKE: Browning can write his own little piece of history with a win over the Cardinal. In the past 20 seasons, Washington is 8-28 when facing Top 10 opponents. The Huskies last win over a Top 10 team came in a 2012 upset of then-No. 7 Oregon State.Browning leads the Pac-12 and is third-best in the country in pass efficiency. Hes thrown 14 touchdowns -- after throwing 16 all of last season -- and is completing nearly 71 percent of his passes. And now Browning gets to face a depleted Stanford secondary with Alameen Murphy and Terrence Alexander the likely starters in place of Meeks and Holder.GETTING DEFENSIVE: The top two scoring defenses in the Pac-12 reside at Washington and Stanford. The Cardinal are allowing just 12 points per game, the Huskies giving up 14.5 per game. But Washington showed a potential weakness against Arizona, giving up 308 yards rushing to the Wildcats last weekend.ON THE ROAD AGAIN: While Stanford has left the comforts of the Bay Area a number of times in the past year, this will be the first game outside the state of California for the Cardinal since Nov. 7, 2015, at Colorado. Theyll also be trying to get McCaffrey in the end zone for the first time on the road. In 12 career road games, McCaffrey has not scored a touchdown running or receiving.
