Firm Seat

The seat should be firm enough to make rising easier and support good posture, yet still be comfortable for long periods of sitting.

Supportive Backrest

The backrest should support the natural curves of the spine. A lounge chair should also provide support for the head and neck.


In a lounge chair, armrests should support under the forearm and hand, and be firm enough to assist pushing up to a standing position.

Armrest length and height for a dining chair should enable the chair to be pulled close to the table. The person's forearms should rest at about 90 degrees on the table.

Padded armrest may be more comfortable for some people.

Foot Rests

Feet should be supported flat on the floor, or on a footrest when seated. Some footrests support the feet only, whilst others support the lower legs.

English Premier League leaders Chelsea took the spoils at the Stadium of Light on Wednesday night in an eventful game that saw the only goal scored by Cesc Fabregas.Cheap Grizzlies Jerseys China .As expected, the home side set out their stall on the defensive for most of the encounter hoping to contain the powerful Chelsea forward line and grab something on the break.With Chelsea increasingly dominant, the crucial breakthrough came on 40 minutes. A neat one-two around the area between Fabregas and Willian saw the former advance and curl his shot beyond Jordan Pickford.The second half began with the visitors still probing and looking the more likely to add to their lead. David Moyes made a couple of changes around the hour mark which gave Sunderland only minimal extra impetus.Toward the 90-minute mark, it was Pickford still the busier of the two goalkeepers, but in the dying seconds Thibault Courtois crucially pulled off the save of the game by beating out a Patrick Van Aanholt effort which seemed destined for the top corner.Chelsea remained at the top of the pile, and Sunderland are still adrift at the bottom. Cheap Swingman Grizzlies Jerseys .  The 19-year-old Olsen played 34 games with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL this season. In that time, hes recorded 17 goals and 17 assists with 36 penalty minutes. Wholesale Grizzlies Jerseys . -- Matt Kuchar and Harris English ran away with the Franklin Templeton Shootout, shooting a 14-under 58 on Sunday in the final-round scramble to break the tournament course record. . -- Team after team passed on Andre Ellington in the draft. Danish attacker Morten Nordstrand has spared Jack Duncans blushes after his disastrous own goal, scoring in the dying seconds to defeat Adelaide 2-1 and thrust Newcastle into the A-Leagues top six.Substitute Nordstrand, in his first game back from injury, scored a 94th-minute winner to add to Andrew Nabbouts first-half opener and cancel out Duncans goalkeeping howler, which appeared certain to throw away victory on Friday night.The calamity went down in the 68th minute when, with Newcastle well in control, Isaias curled a free-kick into the box.Attempting a two-fisted clearance on the slippery surface at McDonald Jones Stadium, Duncan instead punched the ball into the ground and then his own net.It was the 23-year-olds second match-changing mistake against the Reds this season after he clattered into teammate Daniel Mullen in the opening round to hand them a 1-1 equaliser.Nevertheless, the result marks the Jets first triumph over Adelaide in two years and caps a two-week revival thats lifted them from ninth place into, at least temporarily, finals contention.Meanwhile, Guillermo Amors last-placed defending champions sink further into the quagmire of a sorry season in which they have six points from 11 games.It wasnt for a lack of chances, and the Reds could have scored twice in quick succession when Henriques deflected shot trickled wide just before Iacopo La Roccas header hit the post in the first half.Sergio Cirio would have had one before his teammates had Duncan not put a glove on his stirring third-minute effort. Cheap Grizzlies Jerseys. But Mark Jones men were in an enterprising mood after last weeks morale-boosting 2-1 upset of PerthAnd in the end they drew first blood via one of the leagues most-improved players in Nabbout.The in-form Wayne Brown fed Devante Clut, who cleverly drew an opponent and sent a pinpoint pass to Nabbout.The livewire wingers reaction was just as precise, taking a touch before calmly drilling low past Eugene Galekovic.Though United fought for an equaliser they left their resolve in the dressing room at halftime.The Jets stayed in the hunt and Andrew Hoole found dangerous areas but misplaced his decision-making skills at the final touch.He hit the post in the dying minutes and Brown was also denied, leaving Nordstrand to seal the match with his second goal of the campaign.Magnificent result, Jones said.I got a heart attack but we played again for 90 minutes and hung in there, and no better reward than to score late and get a result.Jones described Duncans error as irrelevant.It wasnt his greatest moment this year, but hes saved more than hes let in, he said.We move on. Im not too fussed about that at all.Adelaide coach Guillermo Amor praised his team for fighting for three points instead of trying to hold onto a draw.I like one thing: the mentality of the team. Its 1-1 and the team thinks, Well go for a win, he said.We go with risk. I like this. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

RIO DE JANEIRO -- The biggest battle Brady Ellison had to win Friday was the one going on inside his head. Cheap Cubs Jerseys Authentic .The American was one arrow away from the gold medal round in the mens individual archery when he flat out missed and registered an eight in a shootout against South Korean Ku Bon-chan. Ku took advantage of the opening with a nine and went on to win gold. In the meanwhile, Ellison had to immediately regroup for the bronze medal round starting moments later to avoid going home empty-handed.Ellison won the bronze 6-2 against Netherlands Sjef van den Berg, but had to get out of his own head first.You could see it even in the first two wins, I was (ticked) off and I wasnt in the match, said Ellison, whos been dreaming of an individual medal for 10 years. I knew if I wanted to come home with a medal that I needed to kind of get my (butt) in gear and get into this match. I even told my coach I need to get into this match and quit being in the last one.The week had been odd for Ellison. He had to defeat his best friend and teammate in Jake Kaminski then beat another teammate in Zach Garrett to reach the quarterfinals. The relief of medaling was apparent as he pumped his fist and let out a shout.Ellison now has three medals after the Americans won silver as a team in Rio and previously at the London Games in 2012.Its been a very, very tiring week, Ellison said. Its a long competition. Four matches a day. Ive been out here since 7:30 this morning.Its long, its stressful. You start off shooting against a teammate and then every single match is a dog fight. Its a long day.Ellisons confidence, however, never faded -- even as Ellison knew he was hurting himself mentally. In the fourth round of the bronze medal match, he ripped off a perfect 30 and busted an arrow hitting the minuscule video camera dead center.I just knew it was going to happen all week, Ellison said. Pushing for gold, had a bad shot, but bringing home the bronze.I knew when I shot (the clinching arrow) that it was going high right, but it was going to be a seven or in. And I knew I was coming away with it. Cheap Cubs Jerseys China .

The freshman from Vaughan, Ont. NEWPORT, R.I. -- Sixth-seeded Adrian Mannarino of France rallied past James Duckworth of Australia 6-7 (3), 7-6 (5), 7-6 (4) to advance to the second round of the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships on Tuesday.The 28-year-old Mannarino was the only seeded player in action and voiced his displeasure over playing on a side court and the condition of Newports grass surface.I feel relieved that I won the match, but still I didnt enjoy any minute on the court, he said. The court is just ridiculously bad. Were playing (next to) the other court. Youve got the camera, the microphone on the court. You cant really move. This is really not respectful for the players to come, that kind of court.Qualifier Frank Dancevic of Canada beat American Ryan Harrison 6-4, 6-4 on center court in a match that ended a few minutes after Mannarinos victory.Mannarino went up 5-2 after breaking serve in the seventh game of final set, but struggled and became visibly upset, yelling at himself when he hit a lob long to close the eighth game.The tourney is held on the grounds of the International Tennis Hall of Fame, and fans can get an up-close look at play on the side courts. Spectators stand about 20 feet beyond both baselines, behind a fence thats approximately three-feet high, with a mesh netting attached.Mannarino said its difficult for players to see shots, especially with bad bounces.We dont see the ball, he said. We dont see anything because youve got all the people behindd the court. Cheap MLB Jerseys. Mannarino closed the 2 1/2-hour match with an ace. He is hoping to play on the main court in his next match.Im seeded here so hopefully my second match will be on the center court, he said.Asked about Mannarinos comments, Todd Martin, a longtime pro who serves as the tournament director, focused on the Frenchmans victory.The players, no matter where they are or what conditions they play in, have one goal each day ... be better than their opponent. Today, Adrian Mannarino accomplished that in spite of not liking the conditions, Martin said through a spokeswoman for the tournament.The 24-year-old Harrison lost in the first round for the fourth straight match this season.Its been a disappointing year, he said.Projected as one of a rising group of young Americans a few years ago, Harrison reached 43rd in the world in 2012. He entered this week 158th.Its frustrating, he said. The beautiful thing is Im 24 and Ive got time to figure this out.Also Tuesday, wild card Stefan Kozlov beat Benjamin Becker, 6-1, 6-2; qualifier Brian Baker outlasted fellow American Austin Krajicek, 6-2, 3-6, 6-2; and John-Patrick Smith ousted Jordan Thompson, 6-4, 6-4.

MONZA, Italy -- Christian Horner thinks Max Verstappen was unfazed by the criticism leveled at him over the Italian Grand Prix weekend, saying it was like water off a ducks back for the 18-year-old. Wholesale Celtics Jerseys .Verstappen was a major topic of conversation among drivers at Monza following his aggressive driving at the Belgian Grand Prix. He was singled out by Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen during the Thursday media sessions, while many of his fellow drivers weighed in on the issue.Verstappen has staunchly defended himself in the face of the criticism and insisted his approach to racing would not change. Red Bull boss Horner was impressed with how Verstappen dealt with the negative attention.I havent seen any effect on him at all, obviously he takes it all on board, hes a young guy thats going through different experiences and growing and learning, he said. Like any 18-year-old its water off a ducks back, hes focused on his racing, he is who he is and hes just getting on with it and hes not changing just because someone says he should.Though Verstappen still appears to be far from the finished article when it comes to racing, Horner believes his mental toughness is already on par with the best on the grid.Asked if it was one of Verstappens main strengths, Horner replied: Absolutely, I think his mental strength is there with all the super drivers... They all have that strength. Cheap Celtics Jerseys . Boucher previously coached the Tampa Bay Lightning and had a 97-78-20 record over two-plus seasons.

Jonny Gray believes Argentina have become one of the most dangerous sides in the world after sharpening their claws on their southern hemisphere rivals.The Scotland lock has been impressed by the South Americans since they were admitted to the Rugby Championship back in 2014.They have already recorded wins over both Australia and South Africa and this year had the All Blacks worried when they lead for half an hour in Hamilton before eventually succumbing to a late onslaught.But Gray is concerned the Pumas could now pounce on his side when the Scots welcome Argentina to Murrayfield for Saturdays autumn Test clash.He said: Are they up there with the best sides in the world now? Id say so. Argentina are a great team. They can attack from anywhere. Look at the players they have got - guys like Agustin Creevy, some of their backs and their huge wingers, so they have some dangerous strike runners.They are always keeping the ball alive so you can never switch off. When it comes to facing them up front, in the scrum and in the line-out its going to be a huge challenge. Across the board we have to be switched on.You just have to look at some of their recent results in the Rugby Championship to realise they are a world-class side. They beat South Africa and then pushed New Zealand all the way.We have to be on it from minute one to the final whistle. We need to be clever, we cant be coughing up ball to them.But while the Glasgow forwardd is preparing to face a side who have made significant strides forward in recent years, he believe he still has some way to go before he himself can claim to be among the worlds top performers. Cheap Swingman Celtics Jerseys. Gray has been tipped for a call-up to the British and Irish Lions squad set to tour New Zealand next summer. His performance in Saturdays loss to Australia where he made all of his 24 tackles stick will have only improved his chances of making Warren Gatlands travel party.But Gray is not putting too much emphasis on the statistics.The 22-year-old said: I dont look at numbers. As a defence we all work for each other. Whoever is there makes the tackle and whoever misses the tackle is there to help clean up. We play for each other, we play with a lot of heart, so its a team effort, always.Im just lucky Ive got the coaches at Glasgow and Scotland who will sit down with me and show me where I can improve my game. Its really special getting to play for your country and to come up against some of the best second-rows in the world like we did at the weekend against Australia.Its a great opportunity to test yourself against these guys. I think Ive got a lot to improve on and a long way to go before Im at that level.But Im lucky Ive got players around me pushing me on.

Andrew Wiggins made 10-of-12 from the foul line and scored 17 for Kansas (14-4, 5-0 Big 12), which capped a stretch of four straight games against ranked opponents unscathed. RIO DE JANEIRO -- They came at him with two lines of coverage, just in case he had any notions of trying to elude them. But Adam Krikorian knew this group wasnt ever going to let him go. And so they wrapped him up in a gang tackle and swept him into the pool at the Olympic Aquatics Stadium, and afterward they draped their gold medals around his neck, his grief, for one moment anyway, blending with tears of joy.His U.S. womens water polo team had defeated Italy 12-5 on Friday in still another show of domination for a team that won its second Olympic gold medal in a row. The Americans, also the reigning world champions, outscored their Rio opponents 73-32, extending their winning streak to 22 straight games and their 2016 record to 42-2.That they operated so efficiently over a two-week period during which their coach learned of the sudden death of his brother, flew home to California for the funeral, and then returned to Rio three days later to guide them, spoke both of Krikorian and a tightly bonded team that flourished in large part because of its selflessness.The thing I kept coming back to is that it would be very selfish of me to let what happened to me personally and to my family and to let the grieving and mourning affect this group and what we set out to do the last four years, Krikorian said. These girls have worked so hard for four years. Some have worked their entire lives for this moment. Who am I to ruin that for them?To a player, however, Krikorians squad showered its admiration and appreciation on the coach, who held a team meeting Aug. 3 after hearing that his older brother Blake, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur, died of an apparent heart attack after paddleboarding.For him to pull his team together after hearing that news hours before and be able to sit down and talk to us in that situation is so telling of his character, said team captain Maggie Steffens. He was telling us to enjoy the moment, enjoy opening ceremonies. Dont worry about me, you be you. This is your dream. Live it. And here is this coach who had just been through something so traumatic.We wanted to be strong for him, but he was strong for us. Thats why hes the best coach in the world in my eyes.Why his team is the best in the world is based largely on what won the Americans the gold medal Friday. Their first five goals came from five different players and eight players scored in all, with Kiley Neushul (three), Rachel Fattal (two) and Makenzie Fischer (two) getting multiple goals.Goalkeeper Ashleigh Johnson, the first African-American woman to play water polo in the Olympics for the U.S., was also spectacular, saving a penalty shot in the third quarter that would have trimmed the U.S. lead to 7-4 and making nine saves in all.Shes a competitor at its finest, Steffens said. It doesnt matter what the score is, she wants to get that block for our team. I remember one meeting talking about what pumps us up, and AAshleigh said when she makes a stop, immediately she can see the fire in our eyes because she was able to inspire her teammates.Cheap NBA Jerseys. That was something I got from her. I want to get a goal or a stop for her because she has our backs.The low-key Johnson, 21, who attends Princeton, said she had not played the way she would have liked early in the tournament.Im really happy I was able to make some stops in key moments for us, she said. Thats what our team is about, being able to step up in the big moments and play your role.It is a team of women who consider each other family and talk about building unity by sharing their most vulnerable side. Once, Krikorian had them write letters to coaches who inspired them growing up to be who they are today.When they read the letters aloud, Krikorian said he cried at every single one of them.We talked about not hiding anything and being very open and honest with one another and even emotional and vulnerable at times, he said. And to do that, to do something that extremely emotional and to do it in front of your teammates, creates this compassion for one another that helps us become tighter as a unit and helps us know each other a little better.In the end, they said, in trying to describe the emotion flowing through them as they gathered at midpool in a mixture of chlorine and sweat and tears, it was that closeness they will never forget.We started this together and we wanted to end it together, Steffens said. To just all be in that circle and share that circle with one another, it was fun for me to just look around and look everybody in the eyes and say, We dreamed of this and we did it.Thursday would have been Blake Krikorians 49th birthday, and Adams wife, Anicia, flew to Rio to surprise her husband. On Friday, not long after his players put their gold medals around his neck, Krikorians thoughts once again turned to his brother.I just keep coming back to how my brother, who was the coolest dude in the world, would want me to be, he said. And anytime I was losing focus or getting too emotional, I would think about him and what he would tell me: Man, you are wasting this moment. Go have a blast. Kick some butt. Go compete. Never give up.When I started thinking about that, it gave me some peace to know I can continue on to do what I do.Giving Krikorian the medals is something of a team tradition begun in London, a symbolic gesture because coaches do not receive medals. But on this day, it was to honor the man who has been through so much.But I dont need a medal to know the love and respect we have for each other, the relationships that have been born, Krikorian said. Theres no medal thats going to prove that to me. Whats most important is whats inside my heart and whats inside my mind, and that can never be replaced. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

ANN ARBOR, Mich. Cheap Cubs Jerseys Authentic . -- Jabrill Peppers may be on the field for up to 100 plays a game this season for Michigan.On defense, Peppers will move closer to the line at times as a linebacker and hell be a defensive back on some snaps. He will play in the slot, in the backfield and might even take some snaps on offense.And when the Wolverines need a boost on special teams, they will lean on Peppers to return punts and kickoffs.Peppers is game for all of it.Whatever we got to do to win, he said Sunday, a day before the teams first practice.If someone asks what position Peppers plays, what would he say?I just say, `Im an athlete, he said.Coach Jim Harbaugh said Peppers wont be the only three-way player on the team, expecting cornerback Jourdan Lewis to spend some time on offense along with his usual duties on special teams.I dont know why they havent been letting Jourdan play both plays, Peppers said. Jourdan is one of the craziest athletes Ive ever seen. ... I hope they give him a shot.With Peppers, the Wolverines will attempt to find the right balance between taking advantage of his versatile talent and not wearing him out.Somewhere in there, theres a sweet spot, Harbaugh said. In terms of load, 95, 100 (plays) is probably the max were looking for.On some snaps, Peppers will be on the field simply as a decoy to distract defenses.Thats the best part of everything, he said. Thats where I can work on my acting.Peppers said he was on the field for 96 plays last season at Minnesota. Against Ohio State, he had a career-high seven carries, caught two passes and threw one, along with making five tackles.He didnt play in Michigans win over Florida in the Citrus Bowl because of an injury to his right hand.How did he hurt his hand?Thats going to be forever undisclosed, Peppers said with a chuckle. Im good now, though.Peppers said he has added eight pounds -- and the extra weight appears to be all muscle -- and is probably faster than he was last year.Whats his fastest 40-yard dash?4.31, he said.Offensive coordinator Tim Drevno, who was a San Francisco 49ers assistant coach for Harbaugh, has been around a lot of great athletes and said Peppers ranks among the best of them.Hes one of the most explosive, dynamic players Ive ever been around, Drevno said. Hes in a league with the Frank Gores, Michael Crabtrees and Vernon Davises.Drevno wishes he could have Peppers on the field for every snap, but he knows his day job, so to speak, is on defense. On the roster, Peppers is listed as a linebacker and defensive back. Defensive coordinator Don Brown said it isnt fair to say his position is linebacker or a hybrid.Were going to give this guy a lot to do, Brown said.Based on Peppers upbringing in New Jersey, hes thankful to be where he is, playing football for a storied program and attending a famed university. Peppers father went to prison when Jabrill was 7 and didnt get out until his was 14, he wrote last year in The Players Tribune, and his older brother, Don, was shot and killed at the age of 14.People where Im from, they dont have this opportunity, he said, surrounded by a pack of reporters and cameras at Michigans media day. This alone, Ive made it from my circumstance.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Nashville Predators see forward Mike Fisher as the perfect fit as the seventh captain in franchise history, replacing Shea Weber who was traded to Montreal in July for P.K. Subban in a stunning move.General manager David Poile announced Thursday they have named Fisher as their new captain. Fisher, 36, is going into the final year on his current contract, but Poile made it clear that wont be an issue.He can play here as long as he wants, Poile said at a news conference. I dont view this as a one-year captaincy. Well take whatever we can get from Mike both on and off the ice.Fisher was a full alternate captain the past four seasons and the Predators nominee for the King Clancy Award four of the past five seasons for his leadership. He won the NHL Foundation Award in 2012 and helped Ottawa reach the Stanley Cup Final in 2007.Fisher said being named the Predators captain ranks among the top highlights of his career.Its an honor to be given the captaincy of this team, of this city that I love being a part of . Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic. .., Fisher said. Hopefully, were going to top that this year with the Cup. Thats the plan.The 6-foot-1 center played his 1,000th career NHL game March 3, the 300th player in league history to reach that mark. He tied for the team-lead with five goals during the playoffs last spring. He had a point in each of Nashvilles first five games against San Jose in the second round, and he also scored the game-winning goal in triple-overtime of Game 4 against the Sharks.Fisher won a career-high 53.4 percent of his face-offs last season.Poile said he and coach Peter Laviolette had been discussing candidates to become captain after the trade that sent Weber to Montreal for Subban. The general manager said Fisher met each of the criteria they wanted.Mike Fisher is a great ambassador for this franchise, Poile said.The Predators, who lost to San Jose in seven games, report for training camp Sept. 22. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

I have a 600m race planned for Birmingham on June 6 but Ill need to see how the injury progresses.I really hope I can race in Amsterdam at the European Championships, but it isnt the priority. The Olympics come first, and I wont do anything that would put my race preparations for Rio in jeopardy.Fighting back to fitness got me thinking about what makes my sport so great. So I wrote a few words..... Sebastian Coe beats fierce rival Steve Ovett in the 1500m final at the 1980 Moscow Olympics 1. RIVALRIESThe IAAF and meet directors are really trying to promote head-to-heads this year and it is needed if they want to return to the Seb Coe vs Steve Ovett and Linford Christie vs Carl Lewis days.Essentially, its about creating the right story around it and allowing people to naturally choose sides.Take the Coe-Ovett rivalry. This was pitted as a good boy vs bad boy rivalry. The public were intrigued because they were a Coe or an Ovett fan. Similarly, you were a Linford Christie or Carl Lewis fan.And its no surprise to watch these showdowns and see packed-out stadiums. Last year, we saw huge interest in Usain Bolt vs Justin Gatlin in Beijing. Everyone loves a good ol showdown.2. DRAMAAnything can and does happen. Even the overwhelming favourites have a capacity to bottle and its an irresistible sight to watch. Take John Treacys victory over Ovett - otherwise known as that arrogance personified video on YouTube.The mud lark Treacy out-leans a celebrating Ovett who clearly thought he had the race sewn up. Youd be hard pressed to pick a better video to teach someone that it aint over till its over.3. THE PAIN IS RELATABLEI have to put my hands up and admit that before I was 10, I wouldnt run more than a mile. I wondered what the point was.Grabbing a football and using jumpers as goalposts seemed more fun than running around in circles. But then I had to run cross-country and experienced a whole new world of pain.Then came the fun run 5k and 10k races at local Turkey Trots. After grinding my way through those races, I could only imagine what marathoners had to put their bodies through on a daily basis.From then on, I went from switching the channel when a marathon came on, to empathising with the pain, focus and the slog. And those who have run any of these races will know what Im on about. Irelands David Gillick overcame the fashion conscious Bastian Swillims to be 2007 European indoor champion 4. NATIONAL GLORYTheres a huge surge of national pride anytime someone does well on the big stage. I know I felt incredibly proud watching David Gillick (400m) and hurdler Derval ORourke winning their indoor titles over the years. The arenas can be viewed as proving grounds, where nations seek to get one up on each other.I remember very well when Gillick beat the German athlete Bastian Swillims (donning a very eccentric one-piece suit) to win the European indoors in 2006.5. SIZES FOR EVERYONE Athletics is a sport that caters for all sizes.Its fascinating to walk around the dining hall at a Diamond League meeting and note the difference between the lean marathoners and the muscled shot-putters. No other sport has such a vast array of sizes.6. SUMMER MEETSA few of my mates came along to the Morton Games two years ago. This is an athletics meeting held in July in Santry, Dublin. They werent regulars at athletics meets but they thoroughly enjoyed it.From the exciting commentary trackside to great weather and track records - its a great place to chill in the summer. You dont even need to fully understand athletics to enjoy watching it.Im sure if I went to watch an NFL game, I wouldnt have a Scooby Doo what was going on, but Id still have a great time munching on some popcorn - its a well-sold package.Athletics could do even more to package itself along these lines, but meets like the Morton Games lead the way when it comes to entertainment and carnival-type atmospheres. Usain Bolt storms to victory for Jamaica at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia 7. RELAYSThe best sporting event I have ever been to without doubt has been the Penn Relays. Its the oldest and largest track meet in the United States. Its a mixture of high school, college, university and elite events, attracting 15,000 competitors over five days.The atmosphere is fascinating. The crowd usually tops 10,000 on the final day, many of them Jamaican. And when the USA vs the World relays begin, theres huge passion. Everyone loves getting behind a team.Invariably, there will be at least one race where the leader is hunted down over the last few strides. Its a refreshing reminder of whats beautiful about relays in general - displays of pure desire, guts and pride.WHATS COMING UP FOR OUR SCHOLARS19 - 27 MAY: Savannah Marshall, World Championships in Kazakhstan22 - 30 MAY: Sam Oldham, Europan Gymnastics Championships in Switzerland Also See: About the Scholarship Meet the athletes Blogs Videos Galleries Adidas Nick Leddy Jersey .

EUGENE, Ore. Cheap San Antonio Spurs Jerseys . -- Every team has one of them: A player who hasnt gotten much attention from outside the program but has made a significant impact on his teammates.It might be a scout-team regular, or even a walk-on. It might be someone who just grinded it out every day and never complained.At Oregon, that guy is senior running back Jarret LaCoste.LaCoste was a walk-on at Oregon two years ago when the Ducks went to the first College Football Playoff championship game. Hes since become a key contributor on the scout team -- last week he was tasked with simulating Stanfords Christian McCaffrey.Ask his teammates and theyll all say hes a beast in the weight room, helping younger players to keep up their offseason lifting regimens.LaCoste, who played this season against Washington and gained 55 yards on 10 carries, has already graduated and hes about to embark on a job with a Portland accounting firm. He was never on scholarship during his career with the Ducks -- but he jokes hes gotten some stylish Nike team gear.Honestly, I never would have dreamed I was going to play Division I football, ever, he said. So my expectations just from the start were low, I was like, `Wow, Im just so honored to be on this team, I cant believe they let me on. This is awesome. But then I thought, `I feel very privileged and honored to be on this team, so I better give them everything I can and never let anyone down.Arizona tight end Josh Kern was originally recruited by then-coach Mike Stoops as a quarterback but switched positions after a redshirt year. Hes had only had a dozen touches.But Kern has been the heart of the Wildcats. He gave the eulogy for senior outside linebacker Zach Hemmila, who died in his sleep in August. Kern also spoke at the funeral of fan Andrew Valdez, a local teen who lost his battle with cystic fibrosis last year.Ive never had to worry about him doing the right thing, coach Rich Rodriguez said. Hes a leader in the community. Hes our top service guy. I dont know if you can be a better role model for all of our players than Josh Kern.His teammates echoed the sentiment.People dont see the stuff that goes on inside of here, but like when we come home from a game and get off the bus, Josh is like, `Hey, you need you ride? Samajie, you want a ride? running back Samajie Grant said. Josh, even though he hasnt been playing like he wants to, is still bringing it every single day.At Colorado, quarterback Sefo Liufau pointed to junior cornerback Andrew Bergner, who joined the Buffaloes last season as a walk-on and provides the offense with a challenge during practice.Sometimes you cant always get the best looks from your scout team, sometimes you dont have the depth, Liufau said. Sometimes you dont have the players to go out there and give us a half-decent look. Hes done a really good job this year of going out there and playing ball.Some unsung heroes are players who paid their dues for years and were finally rewarded with a shot. At UCLA that guy is quarterback Mike Fafaul, a former walk-on who became a starter with Josh Rosen sidelined by a shoulder injury.A fifth-year senior, Fafaul was a scout team regular while the starting job was held by Brett Hundley and later Rosen. Last season he appeared in just one game.He learned hed make his first career start during warmups before the Bruins game at Washignton State on Oct. 15. In a 52-45 loss to Utah back the following week, Fafaul set school records for completions and pass attempts (40-for-70) while amassing 464 yards passing with five touchdowns.He got his first career win -- and the game ball -- last week when the Bruins defeated Oregon State 38-24.Hes everything that you want in a quarterback in terms of studying the game and it being serious to him, coach Jim Mora said.Sometimes an unsung hero can be a senior who has just worked unselfishly throughout his career. At Oregon State thats safety Devin Chappell, who has had to shift positions because of injuries that have struck the Beavers defense.Chappell,a walk-on transfer from nearby Western Oregon, started eight games last season, and this spring his teammates named him one of the captains.Devin is one of those guys. Hes a self-made guy, coach Gary Andersen said. He walked on, got a scholarship -- which was so important to him. Hes a good player in this league and hes proven. Hes a team captain and a great leader. He would definitely be labeled a grinder.Stanford guard Johnny Caspers, a fifth-year senior, is much like that, too, Cardinal Coach David Shaw said.Even before the coaches get to everybody, there are guys like Johnny Caspers setting the table saying, `Heres what were going to do. So theres a connection between the coaches and the leaders of the football team, Shaw said. When things are going well, Johnny is one of those guys who say `Hey, hey, hey, hey, we havent won a Super Bowl yet. We got a game this week, lets get back down to things that were supposed to do.---AP Sports Writer Pat Graham in Colorado and Greg Beacham in Los Angeles contributed to this report, as did AP freelancers Rick Eymer in California and Anthony Gimino in Arizona.---For more college football: and Anne M.

American Jordan Spieth has won the Australian Open for the second time in a thrilling three-man playoff at Royal Sydney Golf Club.Spieth drained a three-metre putt for birdie on the 18th hole to scupper the dreams of local hopes Cameron Smith and Ashley Hall on Sunday.The trio all finished the championship 72 holes at 12 under par, with Spieth draining a nerve-wracking two-metre putt on the last just to make the sudden-death playoff.Then, in a dramatic climax, Spieth put his approach to three metres on the first hole of the playoff - the 18th - before Hall knocked his to less than two metres.Displaying all the cool and class that helped him land last years Masters and US Open crowns, 23-year-old Spieth again buried his clutch putt before Hall pushed his birdie attempt right of the cup.Spieths victory follows his win at The Australian in 2014 and his runner-up showing last year at the same venue.His victory is also a big win for Open officials, with the world No.5 almost certain to return to again defend the trophy next year when the tournament moves back to The Australian.In a major consolation for the joint runneers-up, Smith and Hall secured starts at next years British Open at Royal Birkdale, as did two-time champion Aaron Baddeley, who finished in a five-way tie for fourth at 10 under, two shots out of the playoff. Cheap Spurs Jerseys. Baddeley closed with a one-under 71 and edged out Rod Pampling (70), Jason Scrivener (69), New Zealander Ryan Fox (71) and third-round leader Geoff Ogilvy (73) by virtue of his superior world ranking.After starting the day with a two-stroke lead, Ogilvy looked the likely winner for much of the afternoon before unravelling with a bogey on the par-4 15th and a catastrophic double on the easy par-5 16th.The former US Open champion struggled off the tee all day and his hopes of a second national title - to go with his 2010 triumph at The Lakes - evaporated after he drove into the trees and couldnt get out on 16.While he eventually signed for a disappointing 73, Hall and Smith both charged home with final-round six-under 66s to reel in Ogilvy, with Spieth closing with a 69. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

TAMPA, Fla. Scarpe Vans Scontate . -- Gerald McCoy stared straight ahead in disbelief.The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have allowed a NFL-high 101 points during a 1-2 start, and the four-time Pro Bowl defensive tackles at a loss to explain why.`Thats a concern. Its not good, the seventh-year pro responded. Defensively, we dont worry about what the offense does. But regardless of what they do, if we dont stop these teams from scoring, were not going to win. ... We have to be better.The Bucs (1-2) have lost two straight games on the heels of a season-opening victory over the Atlanta Falcons, and quarterback Jameis Winston insists he has to play better if the team is going to be more successful. But so does a leaky defense thats struggled to keep opponents out of the end zone through three games.Coach Dirk Koetter reiterated Monday he feels the culture of the club has to change before the Bucs, who havent made the playoffs since 2007, will emerge as consistent winners.The coach welcomed an opportunity to explain what he meant when he said the teams culture is not where it needs to be after Sundays 37-32 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. The best teams Ive been on beat with one heart. They count on the guy next to them to do their job every time. They win and lose together, Koetter said.Were just missing something, and as my title suggests, its my job to speak up, the coach added. I feel like sometimes we find too many ways to lose a game, instead of creating ways to win games.The Rams rallied from a 10-point halftime deficit, then held on in the closing seconds after Winston threw his third TD pass and returned from a 69-minute weather delay to lead a potential game-winning drive. That ended when the quarterback was tackled from behind after a 10-yard scramble to the Los Angeles 5 on the final play.While the defense helped build a first-half lead, returning an interception for a touchdown and forcing a fumble that led to another TD, the unit also allowed an offense that failed to score a TD in the first two weeks to get in the end zone four times. The Rams also scored on a 77-yard fumble return forced on Robert Quinns sack/strip of Winston in the fourth quarter.I told the team today, dont point fingers. We had a lot of opportunities -- offense, defense, kicking game, Koetter said.The defense has yielded six plays of 43-plus yards, more in three weeks than all of last season. Case Keenum threw TD passes of 44 and 43 yards for the Rams, who were outgained 472 yards to 320 while running 22 fewer offensive plays than the Bucs.The turnovers that led to 13 first-half points were the first of the season forced by the Bucs.Its kind of bittersweet, cornerback Alterraun Verner said. Its positive we got the takeaways, but we cant allow the explosive plays.Defensive coordinator Mike Smith, in his first season in Tampa Bay, said last week that players are still learning his system and that its too soon to draw any conclusions about how good the unit can be.This is all new for them, and I dont think you can really say what kind of defense were going to be until weve got at least four games under our belt, Smith said.Theres going to be growing pains, the defensive coordinator added. Were playing some guys that have experience in the NFL, but they dont have experience in our system that were trying to put together and have it evolve to be their system.---AP NFL website: and Vans Old Skool Nere e Bianche Pop Foxing Scarpe . -- Jacksonville wide receiver Cecil Shorts will likely be a game-time decision whether hell play Sunday in the Jaguars home game against the San Diego Chargers. Vans Bianche Old Skool . -- Jimmy Walkers first PGA Tour trophy came with a special gift tucked inside. . Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork. "They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said.Juan Mata says Manchester United are finding it easier to express themselves having gained confidence from four straight wins. Uniteds narrow 1-0 win over Watford on Wednesday marked only the second time this season they have won four in a row in all competitions, leaving them level on points with fourth-place Manchester City, who have a game in hand.Mata is the only United player to play in every Premier League game this season, and while he admits the campaign has been tough, the Spaniard is enjoying the current winning period. Mata scores Manchester Uniteds match-winning goal in the 83rd minute against Watford Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports he said: Its a good moment for us, a nice two or three weeks, winning games and enjoying our football, and making our fans proud.Since the game against Shrewsbury in the FA Cup, this victory gave us our confidence back. We won a massive game against Arsenal, and we showed character, intensity, and then in the last game it was tough. Thats what confidence means for me and any player I think. When you are winning and when you are having good results it is in a way easier to play your football, and thats what were doing right now.The players and manager Louis van Gaal have come in for criticism this season having crashed out of the Champions League and losing their grip on the top four.  Marcus Rashford is one of several young players to make their debut under Louis van Gaal in recent weeks But Mata, who moved to United in January 2014 under David Moyes, says the criticism is part and parcel of playing for such a big club.Theres always that possibility when youre playing for a club like Manchester United, you have to win every game, and when you dont win one or two games it is a big problem, he said. How high can Man Utd finish? As Manchester United hit some form, we look at how high in the Premier League they can finish. You have to deal with it and you have to face it as a professional footballer and just try to focus on what you have to do.[Top four] is where I think Manchester United should always be. And now we have two ways to be there, one is through the Premier League and the other is through the Europa League, where we are goiing through stages and facing a big club like Liverpool. Vans Sk8 Hi Bianche.   Mata says it is testament to Van Gaal that the youngsters have performed Well try until the end of the season to get this club where it deserves to be and that is in the Champions League. Obviously we need to win almost every game to do that until the end of the season.Much has been made of the influx of young players Van Gaal has introduced in recent weeks due to injuries to senior players, with Marcus Rashford in particular proving a success with four goals in his first two games.And Mata, who captained United on Wednesday and was the most senior player in the starting eleven at 27, says it is testament to the clubs academy and Van Gaal himself that the more youthful players are holding their own. Van Gaal speaks ahead of the Super Sunday clash against West Bromwich Albion I think it speaks very well for the philosophy of the manager and for the academy of the club. The manager believes in them, he showed with Ajax and Bayern Munich that he is not afraid to put young people in the first eleven.I was the oldest the other day at 27 years old. If youd told me 15 years ago in Spain that I was going to be captain of Manchester United, I would say it is almost impossible. I felt very proud and very happy.Watch the full exclusive interview with Juan Mata on Soccer Saturday from midday Also See: LVG wants trophies over fourth Sky Live: West Brom v Man Utd How high can Man Utd finish?
