Chelimo celebrated with the flag wrapped aro Antworten

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Usain Bolt finally got his party started at the Olympics on Saturday. He put his finger to his lips to ask for quiet at the starting block, rubbed his closely shaved head, crouched down for the start and grinded through an opening round in the 100 meters that was as routine as making the bed.Its always to win, he said. Thats what Im here for.Bolt did just that in a first-round heat that was, typically, entertaining, given the low-pressure semi-sprint that it was.The two-time defending gold medalist got his customary slow start and lumbered out of the blocks -- seventh out of eight in his heat. He trailed heading into the final 25 meters then glanced to his left and measured up Andrew Fisher, a Jamaican who competes for Bahrain and was a body length ahead of him, three lanes over.Not a problem. Bolt put it into third gear -- hes got more for later -- and cruised past Fisher to win the heat in 10.07 seconds.Fisher also made it through to the semifinals and was anything but upset.You know that when youre in line with him, youre in front of others, Fisher said.Typical of an opening day in the 100, there were no real surprises.Justin Gatlin, considered the biggest threat to derail Bolts quest for nine total Olympic golds, won his heat easily and finished with the days best time, 10.01 seconds.Went out there and executed my race in the first round, the American sprinter said. Cruised to the finish line.Bolts Jamaican buddy Yohan Blake made it through easily, as did Americans Marvin Bracy and Trayvon Bromell and Frenchman Christophe Lemaitre.Theres going to be some stacked semifinals, but its good, Bolt said of the three races that precede Sunday nights main event. It gets you running and gets you up to speed to go out and run the final.Bolt is a 1-2 favorite to take his unprecedented third straight Olympic title in the 100. His chances of doing that would seem to have as much to do with his health as they do with Gatlin or anyone else lining up against him. Bolt pulled out of his national championships last month with a sore hamstring. Although earlier in the week he conceded he wished hed had more real races under his belt this year, on Saturday he said hes in good form.I felt OK. It wasnt the best start. Felt kind of sluggish. Its the fact that its the morning, said Bolt, who was called to the line at 12:42 p.m. Im not used to running this early at any championship.He saves his best for prime time, and the rest of the field left the stadium with a bit more than 24 hours to ponder what has not been possible: beating Bolt at the Olympics.Once hes in a tight position, he might tense up, said veteran sprinter Churandy Martina. But you never know, because he always shows up at the right time and the right moment, which is these Games.

With his new coach and six-time Grand Slam singles champion Boris Becker watching him during an official match for the first time, Djokovic appeared tentative early against the Slovakian player, who often appeared content to keep the ball in play. . -- Anaheim Ducks defenceman Luca Sbisa will be out at least six weeks with a torn tendon in his right hand.

In taking its goal tally to 99 in all competitions already this season, City delivered another demonstration of its lethal firepower at Etihad Stadium to set up a fourth-round match at home to another second-tier team -- Watford. Cheap Adidas Superstar White .C. -- Calgarys Kevin Koe did it the hard way again. RIO DE JANEIRO -- American runner Paul Chelimo won an Olympic silver medal.Or did he?Oh, yes he did.Chelimo, who was born in Kenya but lives in Oregon, finished second in the mens 5,000-meter race Saturday behind Mo Farah. Now a U.S. Army specialist , Chelimo celebrated with the flag wrapped around his shoulders and soaked up the cheers from the crowd. But while he was speaking to the media, he found out he had been disqualified from the race and wouldnt get his prize.Apparently, he heard from a television reporter, he stepped off the track during a tussle with some of the other runners.I thought it was a joke. I thought he was joking, Chelimo said. Now Im really happy. I got reinstated. Its the best feeling ever. Its the best, best feeling ever.Besides Chelimo, Mohammed Ahmed of Canada and Muktar Edris of Ethiopia were also disqualified. Ahmed, too, was later reinstated, putting him back in fourth place. Edris remained disqualified, but Ethiopian teammate Hagos Gebrhiwet ended up with bronze after being briefly upgraded to silver.When it came time for the medal ceremony, Chelimo hopped up to the second step on the podium and received his silver medal.dddddddddddd But hes still not completely sure what happened in the first place.They said it was just pushing, said Chelimo. I couldnt wrap it in my mind. Going back in history, I couldnt see a 5K of people getting DQd.It was really tactical and they (the Ethiopians) kept pushing me because they were working as a team. Its never easy to run a race and run against a team. ... But the Army has taught me to be mentally and physically tough.The decision to disqualify Chelimo and Ahmed was -- at least briefly -- good news for Bernard Lagat. The 41-year-old American was moved up to bronze, which would have made him the oldest Olympic medalist in a running event if it had lasted.But from the moment he learned of the decision, Lagat was preparing himself for a reversal.If they tell me, `Hey man, we gave it to you by accident, Im going to (give) it back, Lagat said. No problem.Sadly for Lagat, he never even got it. ' ' '
