OMAHA, Neb. Keyshawn Johnson Jersey . -- Missy Franklin stood beside the blocks, staring down the still water in her lane. Never had she faced so much pressure, yet she felt serene.A night after she failed to make the Olympic team in the 100-meter backstroke -- an event she won four years ago in London -- Franklin rallied to finish second in the 200 freestyle Wednesday night at the U.S. trials.It was good enough to earn her a spot in an individual event in Rio.Thats probably the most proud race Ive ever swam in my entire career, coming back from such a loss last night and telling myself that I still have it in me to do whatever I believe I can do, she said, tears glistening in her eyes.Katie Ledecky cruised to victory in the race. Franklin was tied for second on the last turn and churned through the water to get her hand on the wall as runner-up.I told her after the race shes one tough cookie, Ledecky said. That 2 race is for real, and theres more to come from her.Up next are the 100 free on Thursday and the 200 backstroke on Friday, giving Franklin two more chances at further redemption. Four years ago, she took London by storm, winning five medals, including four golds, and spread her infectious smile and bubbly personality everywhere.This time, just getting on the team has been a lot tougher.Franklin left college after swimming two years at California to turn pro last year. She juggles sponsor commitments, photo shoots and travel in between training and practice. The extra demands away from the pool were more than she had expected, but its her nature not to want to let anyone down.After struggling to seventh in the 100 back, Franklin returned to her hotel room and re-thought things.I realized that my job here is not to make an Olympic team, its not to defend anything, its to swim well, she said. Its me trying to work through how to deal with this kind of pressure that Ive never really dealt with before and I think, as we just saw, Im really starting to figure that out for myself.Franklin had her work cut out in the 200 free final. Besides Ledecky, there was defending Olympic champion Allison Schmitt (fourth) and Leah Smith (third), who had already made the team.Her coach, Todd Schmitz, pumped his fists and charged down the steps of the arena to congratulate his swimmer.She finally had reason to flash her trademark smile.Last night was really tough and coming back from that, I was telling myself, `Im not done fighting. Im not done with believing in myself, she said.For a while, it looked like Franklin might only make the team as a relay swimmer. Thats hardly what she spent the last four years working for.People say theres nothing like making your first Olympic team, but theres really nothing like making your second Olympic team, she said, laughing. Its moments like this that you kind of have to sit back and say, `You know what? I just did it. Matt Forte Jersey . R.J. Umberger scored twice to lead the Blue Jackets to a franchise-record for consecutive wins with a 5-3 victory Tuesday night over the Los Angeles Kings. Leonard Williams Jersey . -- 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. . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. TORONTO -- Zach Collaros will start in place of injured quarterback Ricky Ray when Toronto hosts the B.C. Lions tonight. Watch the pre-game show on TSN and TSN Mobile TV live NOW, and listen to it on TSN 1050. Rays status for the game has been in question since he suffered a lower-body injury in a 35-19 win at Winnipeg on July 19. "Ive been taking the reps all week so I was kind of expecting it," Collaros said Sunday at practice. "Im just ready to go and Im excited, it is my first start in a while." Colllaros, 24, spent most of last season on the injured list and sat No. Terrence Brooks Jersey. 4 on the depth chart behind Ray, Jarious Jackson and Trevor Harris. Collaros said hes looking forward to the first start of his two-year career. "Its very special. It is a lot different than coming in in the fourth quarter. It is a completely different thought process and preparation before the game, so Im just anxious and ready to go." The Argonauts (2-2) enter a bye after Tuesday, which should give Ray time to heal.
