Cup edging closer by the day Antworten

Denny Morrison is having the Olympics of a lifetime. Three days after taking silver in the mens 1,000-metre long track speed skating event at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Morrison has added a bronze to his cabinet, this time in the 1,500 metres on Saturday. "Its been a long road with a lot of persistence and its finally paid off," an elated Morrison told CBC Sports after the race. Morrison, skating 15th of 20 pairs, capitalized on a strong opening lap to lay down a time of one minute, 45.22 seconds, and was the leader until Polands Zbigniew Brodka topped it for gold in 1:45.00. "What Ive found [in 1,500-metre races] is that I cant go out slow and conservative and try to beat the other guys who finish strong, I have to go out my way – go out fast, and just hang on," Morrison said. "And I was able to hang on just enough." There was more drama to come in the final pairing. Dutch skater Koen Verweij finished in a dead heat with Brodka, crossing the line in 1:45.00 as well. When the times were adjusted, Brodka ended up with the gold medal, a mere three thousandths of a second ahead. But it also meant that Morrison had his medal, after an agonizing wait to see if any of the 10 skaters after him could take his place on the podium. "It is [excruciating], you already want to puke," he said. "Youre already so tired and hurting, but man does it feel good to win [a medal]." Mathieu Giroux of Pointe-aux-Trembles, Que., finished in 19th in 1:47.65. Lukas Makowsky of Regina placed 28th in a time of 1:48.51. Teenager Vincent de Haitre of Cumberland, Ont., was 33rd in 1:49.42. Morrisons bronze puts Canadas medal count at 12, with four gold, five silver, and three bronze. Morrison, Giroux and Makowsky are expected to compete in the team pursuit event next week, as they attempt to defend their gold medal from the Vancouver Olympics. Morrisons efforts have been one of the highlights of the Olympics so far for Canada. Not even scheduled to compete in the 1,000-metres after falling in the event at the Canadian trials, Morrison was given a spot in the race thanks to teammate Gilmore Junio, who gave up his. The Fort St. John, B.C., native fully took advantage of the opportunity, taking silver in the 1,000 metres behind Stefan Groothuis of the Netherlands. Defending Olympic champion Mark Tuitert of the Netherlands finished fifth. American Shani Davis continued his disappointing 2014 Olympic campaign with an 11th-place finish. Canada now has two medals in long track, both from Morrison. The Dutch team has dominated the proceedings at Adler Arena, taking four gold and 13 medals so far in only seven races, matching the record set by East Germany in the 1988 Games in Calgary. With five long track events still remaining, the Netherlands will likely surpass that mark in the coming days. To compare, the other nations have eight long track medals combined. Its a big turnaround for the Dutch team from their Vancouver effort in long track, where it finished well below expectations with three gold and only seven medals total.

He earned $3.Canada Head Coach Kieran Crowley has made three changes to his starting roster for Saturdays International Test Match against Scotland at BMO Field in Toronto. The announcement, which took place on Thursday morning in the team hotel in Oakville ahead of a double training day, comes two days before his side plays their second game of the June International Series. Canada was defeated 34-25 last Saturday at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby, BC and will also face USA next Saturday in Sacramento, California; both games are part of the 2014 Pacific Nations Cup campaign. In the forwards, Aaron Carpenter slots into the front row at hooker to join props Hubert Buydens and Jason Marshall. Canadas engine room stays unchanged with the duo of Tyler Hotson and Jamie Cudmore returning to action on Saturday. Jebb Sinclair will make his first appearance for Canada this year at blindside flanker after missing the Japan game with a leg strain and will join Japan try-scorer John Moonlight and Captain Tyler Ardron in Canadas back-row. "It feels great to be back. Im thankful to our physiotherapy team for working hard with me over the last week to help me get fit," said Sinclair following the roster announcement. Fiery scrumhalf Phil Mack will get the nod on Saturday and provide the link to fellow Canada Sevens stalwart Harry Jones, who will lead the backs at number 10. The rest of Canadas backline remains untouched with the duo of Nick Blevins and Ciaran Hearn in the centres and Jeff Hassler, Taylor Paris and James Pritchard rounding out the back three. Substitutes for Canada include Ray Barkwill, Andrew Tiedemann and Jake Ilnicki in the front row, Kyle Gilmour, Jon Phelan, Gord McRorie, Connor Braid and DTH van der Merwe. With next years Rugbyy World Cup edging closer by the day, Saturdays test match will be another big opportunity for Canada to face a similar side to what they will see next year in the UK.dddddddddddd Three out of four of Canadas Pool D World Cup opponents – Ireland, France and Italy – regularly face Scotland in the annual Six Nations competition and play a similar brand of European rugby. Despite the similarities between Scotland and next years opponents, Sinclair isnt looking beyond this weekends challenge. "None of us are thinking about next years World Cup; all our attention is focused on Saturday at 2pm and were hoping to replicate our fast start from last weekend against Japan. We need to fix a few defensive errors that let us down in the second half," said the Fredericton, New Brunswick native. "I think Scotlands game plan matches up well with how Canadians like to play – big, direct, hard ball runners – and they have a strong set piece that theyve turned around recently under (Vern) Cotter," added Sinclair. "Were excited for the challenge and looking forward to playing in front of a packed house at BMO Field on Saturday." In order to have success on Saturday, Crowleys outfit will need to first and foremost establish a physical presence and eliminate costly mistakes. During last weekends loss to Japan, Canada gave away 15 points from penalties off the boot of fullback Ayumu Goromaru. The Scots are fresh off a 24-6 victory over USA in Houston, Texas in newly appointed coach Vern Cotters debut. Scrumhalf Greig Laidlaw was good for three conversions and one penalty for nine of Scotlands points against USA, with tries also coming from fullback Stuart Hogg, winger Tim Visser and one penalty try.
