New South Wales 2 for 95 trail Victoria 6 for 510 dec (Handscomb 215, Dean 134, White 75*) by 415 runsScorecard Victoria batsman Peter Handscomb made his case for inclusion in Australias Test squad almost irresistible by raising 215 against New South Wales at the SCG. New Balance Soldes . In front of selector Mark Waugh, and against Test captain Steven Smith and vice-captain David Warner, Handscomb scored the first double-century of his first-class career to deliver Victoria into a powerful position as they declared on 6 for 510.By the close of play, New South Wales had already lost both Warner and Smith in reply. On 11, Warner was caught at first slip off Scott Boland when he tried to glide the ball fine, and on 8 Smith flashed outside off stump and was caught at slip off Chris Tremain. Both men are certain starters for the Adelaide Test, but the manner of their dismissals was hardly ideal given Australias batting failures against South Africa.At stumps, New South Wales were 2 for 95, with opener Daniel Hughes on 42 and Kurtis Patterson on 28. Patterson is another potential contender for a Test call-up, but Handscomb has set the bar high for batsmen trying to impress the selectors. He resumed on 110 alongside Travis Dean on 134, and although Dean was bowled by Doug Bollinger without adding a run, Handscomb was set for a long stay.Handscomb batted for 356 balls and nearly eight hours in compiling his 215, and became the first man since Brad Hodge in 2008-09 to score a Sheffield Shield double-century for Victoria. Since the start of last summer, Handscomb has scored 1147 Shield runs at 52.13 - more than any other player in the competition. He now appears a likely replacement for Adam Voges in the Adelaide Test squad.Eventually, Handscomb was dismissed when he advanced to the part-time legspin of Smith, missed, and was stumped by Peter Nevill. His team-mates Matthew Wade (6) and Glenn Maxwell (10) failed to enhance their Test hopes, but the in-form veteran Cameron White continued his prolific season by adding an unbeaten 75 batting at No.7, before the declaration came.

Those players were Dallas Stars 2012 first-rounder Radek Faksa, Winnipeg Jets 2013 fourth-rounder Jan Kostalek and Phoenix Coyotes 2012 seventh-rounder Marek Langhamer. New Balance Outlet France . -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Farmar will be out for roughly four weeks after tearing his left hamstring. . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. RIO DE JANEIRO -- It was exactly 80 years ago Sunday that the United States mens eight rowing team -- now famously known as the Boys in the Boat -- won the gold medal at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. One day shy of that anniversary, the U.S. women -- the Girls in the Boat? -- added to that legacy by rowing to their third consecutive gold medal at the Olympics and their fourth overall.The Boys in the Boat are special because I am a University of Washington alum. There is such great history there and its cool to be a part of that history now, Kerry Simmonds said of the 1936 crew that was composed entirely of UW rowers. What have we added to that legacy? As women, were strong women, but I dont think gender is a big thing. You win Olympic gold no matter what gender you are. Boys in the Boat, Girls in the Boat, were all just in the boat.The victory gave the U.S. 33 gold medals in rowing, matching the former East Germany for most ever by a country in the sport. East Germany is no more, but the Americans are currently the most dominant country in womens rowing. They have not lost an Olympic or world rowing championship in 10 years. Sports Illustrated recently headlined the eights as The Unbeatables.Despite all those victories, coxswain (and another UW alum) Katelin Snyder said she is partly inspired by the 2004 Olympic team that took silver behind Romania. It was the first medal for the U.S. women since winning gold in 1984.So they did something that had essentially hadnt been done in 20 years, Snyder said. I think that today we tried to draw power from that and attack the race as if [winning gold] had never been done before, even though it had. I think when youre in that mindset, youre able to do something special.Rowing at a magnificent venue surrounded by mountains, with the famous Christ the Redeemer statue visible -- Seeing Christ the Redeemer up there is the coolest part for me, Simmonds said -- the U.S. woomen started off in third place but simply kept rowing hard and increasing their speed. New Balance Pas Cher Chine. Shortly after the halfway point, they pushed into first place and held it the rest of the way, winning with a time of 6:01.49, nearly 2 ? seconds ahead of silver medalist Great Britain.One of the reasons why the Americans have such success in the eight is because they have such a huge setup of women competing at the collegiate level, British coxswain Zoe de Toledo said. I think that sets a huge base for them, but I think were starting to catch up and the rest of the world is starting to catch up as well.Remember, before the Americans were dominant, the Romanians were dominant. These things come up and down.Thats the way sport is. But with the strength of womens crew in the United States and the considerable competition driving each rower to get better, it could be a while before there is a downturn for the American women.Eleanor Logan doesnt see it. She won gold on the 2008 and 2012 teams as well but said Saturdays victory felt like a totally different experience to her and 2012 gold medalist Meghan Musnicki.We feel so fortunate to be part of this team, Logan said. The hunger to be the best they can be every day has pushed us to a new level. Were not really comparing, we just had to look every day to be better ourselves.Meanwhile, the mens eight finished fourth behind Great Britain, Germany and the Netherlands. Perhaps like the 1936 team, they needed another couple additional Huskies in the boat (this years team had four). Or a woman.We really are encouraged by the women who came before us and felt the culture of excellence, Simmonds said. We just want to make them proud and ourselves proud and our coaches. And were all working hard to build on the legacy that is the U.S. women.
