    Michelle Jenneke is the dancing queen of Australian athletics, and shes on track to make the 2016 Olympics her crowning glory. Nick Perry Jersey .Jenneke became an internet sensation in 2012, when her now-famous warm-up routine went viral; but look a little closer and there is a lot more to this humble Sydney athlete than meets the eye.The Jenneke jig attracted worldwide attention but the 23-year-old is now focused on delivering a more mesmerising performance in the womens 100 metres hurdles event in Rio.At the moment I feel like Im in the best training shape that Ive been, Jenneke told ESPN.I havent been having many races recently but Im sure well see it by the time I get to Rio.However, time isnt something Jenneke has a lot of lately.The schedule of an Olympic athlete is hectic enough, yet Jenneke is also juggling the demands of studying for a university degree.But this mechatronics engineering student has crunched the numbers to come up with a formula that allows her to fit the requisite training and study into her full schedule.It can be quite difficult but I think that Ive managed my time pretty well, Jenneke said.My goal at the moment is to finish the degree in 2019 so Ive still got quite a bit of time left.This year Ive just been doing two subjects. Studying part time really helps as I dont think Id be able to manage the workload of full-time whilst training.Her coach of 13 years, Michael Zisti, brother of former rugby league flyer Nick, is aware of her busy timetable and has carefully planned a training regime to avoid any possibility of burnout.While most of her Olympic teammates and rivals bunker down in secret overseas locations to add the final touches to their preparations, Jenneke has opted for the comforts of home.Im not really much of a traveller, Jenneke said.I dont love it that much, so living out of a suitcase is not really my thing. I much prefer being at home, being comfortableI fly out in about five weeks. Im just going to be doing regular training until then and Ive also got a race on the Gold Coast and a race on the Sunshine Coast.With former world champion Sally Pearson now denied the chance to defend her Olympic title due to a hamstring injury, the weight of Australian expectation shifts further onto Jennekes shoulders.Jenneke she understands and accepts shell be under pressure to deliver when she lines up on the starting blocks in Rio, but its something she thrives on.The Sydneysider is already considered one of Australias leading track medal hopes with a personal-best time of 12.82 seconds -- 0.6 of a second outside the world record -- and she thinks she still has a little bit more in me.I think over the couple of years Ill see some more improvement, Jenneke told ESPN.I dont think Im at the fastest that Ill be.Im hoping to be getting even faster in the next couple of years so I dont think Ive hit my peak yet. Corey Linsley Jersey . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. Demetri Goodson Jersey . -- Ty Montgomery had 290 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns, and fifth-ranked Stanford held on to beat No. ;. The International Olympic Committee released the official list of bid cities on Friday after the deadline for applications had passed. The candidates -- all previously announced in their own countries -- are: Almaty, Kazakhstan; Beijing; Krakow, Poland; Lviv, Ukraine; Oslo, Norway; and Stockholm. PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Fourteen points down last week. Trailing by 21 this week.Overcoming big deficits hasnt been a problem for Rutgers lately, especially with Janarion Grant coming to the rescue with big plays.The senior wide receiver threw for a touchdown and had a go-ahead 69-yard punt return for another score as Rutgers rallied from an early 21-point deficit and defeated New Mexico 37-28 on Saturday.Halfback Robert Martin rushed for a career-high 169 yards, including an 80-yard touchdown, and Chris Laviano threw a 75-yard scoring pass to Jawuan Harris in helping the Scarlet Knights (2-1) overcome a big deficit for the second straight week.Man, Janarions different, said Martin, who averaged 8.0 yards. I love going out there with him, competing with him. Even at practice man, he wants to win at everything he does and I like that because thats how I am and just knowing that when he gets the ball in his hands he can take it the distance.David Bonagura kicked three second-half field goals, including two in the final 5:30, in keeping new coach Chris Ash unbeaten at home.Daryl Chestnut scored on a 19-yard run, Austin Apodaca threw a 36-yard TD pass to Patrick Reed and Lamar Jordan scored on a 52-yard run in giving the Lobos (1-2) a 21-0 lead late in the first quarter. Richard McQuarley scored on a 22-yard fourth-quarter run to get New Mexico within 31-28, but Bonagura added two field goals to put the game out of reach.Grant had three touchdowns in rallying the Scarlet Knights against Howard last week, and he had a hand in three scores against the Lobos, with a late 33-yard punt return setting up the final field goal.We talked about it after the game, weve got have a maniacal attitude of doing your job and doing the little things right, New Mexico coach Bob Davie said. I feel better about our team right now than I did last Saturday from a standpoint of fighting against a good opponent. Again, we walk out of here with our heads held high and we have a chance to be a good teamm. Lane Taylor Jersey. Grants biggest play was the punt return 1:04 before halftime with the score tied at 21-all.Grant fielded a Corey Bojoquez punt at his 31, went left and then reversed his field and went 69 yards down the right side for his six touchdown of the season. It was his third career punt return for a score and eighth overall. He has scored on five kickoff returns.THE TAKEAWAYNEW MEXICO: The Lobos could have been 3-0 heading into a bye week. After beating South Dakota, New Mexico blew a 31-22 fourth-quarter lead after New Mexico State last weekend and gave away an even bigger margin this week. The Lobos had a chance to rally late last week and game up short. They came back from a 10-point deficit this week and also came up short.RUTGERS: With the Big Ten Conference season starting next week, Rutgers has to get off to better starts if it wants to be competitive. The Scarlet Knights fell behind No. 8 Washington 24-0 and trailed in both games at home.Cant say enough about our players, for the second week in a row, we come out of the gate and we get down but nobody flinched, Ash said. Everybody believes in themselves, in each other, in our plan, and we just kept going. We made the plays that we needed to.BULLET: Ash is going to be second guessed after inserting quarterback Zach Allen into the game in the fourth quarter with Rutgers leading 31-28 with 7:48 to play. There seemed to be nothing wrong with Laviano. The Scarlet Knights got a 33-yard field goal from Bonagura but that was set by an unsportsmanlike penalty against the Lobos.UP NEXTNEW MEXICO: The Lobos have a bye week and face San Jose State at home in their Mountain West Conference opener on Oct. 1.RUTGERS: The Scarlet Knights play their third straight home game and face No.13 Iowa in their Big Ten Conference opener on Sept. 24.---AP College Football Website:  href="">Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap Wholesale Authentic Jerseys NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Authentic Jerseys ' ' '
