Whistleblower Yulia Stepanovas hopes of competing in the Summer Olympics are all but over. Youth Braves Jerseys . Her fight to expose doping and corruption is not.Its OK to lose a good fight, Stepanovas husband, Vitaly Stepanov, told The Associated Press on Monday.They have appealed to the International Olympic Committee to reverse its decision, handed down Sunday, that denies Stepanova a chance at competing in the Rio Games, which begin Aug. 5. The decision, the Stepanovs claim, is based on incorrect information, including the IOCs framing of Stepanovas decision to become a whistleblower as a too-little-too-late desperation play made after the Russian team had cast her aside.Its a conclusion that both the World Anti-Doping Agency and tracks governing body, the IAAF, disagree with; both recommended Stepanova be allowed to compete in Rio.But Stepanov said he received several signals that the IOC would not go along, beginning with a general lack of interest from the key decision makers. He said that during the push for Olympic eligibility, he spoke with two separate IOC officials for a total of 90 minutes.I think what the IOC didnt do is spend enough time to understand how big the problem is in Russia and how much covering up is happening in Russian sports, he said.Stepanova was the 800-meter runner who was entrenched in the Russian doping system but later came forward with details about the cheating. That triggered investigations that led to the banning of the Russian track team from the Olympics. After receiving more information about Russian sports as a whole, the IOC opted against a ban of the entire Russian team.Part of that decision included a ruling that any Russian with a previous doping ban would not be allowed in Rio. That includes Stepanova, though the legality of that ruling is in question: In 2011, the Court of Arbitration for Sport invalidated the IOCs Rule 45, which called for Olympic bans for any athlete whod served more than a six-month doping penalty. CAS said it amounted to double jeopardy.It was one of several facets from the decision handed down Sunday that indicated the difficulty the IOC had in finding the right balance between, as president Thomas Bach called it, individual justice and collective responsibility. There also were political concerns; a Russian official addressed the IOC executive board and told members not to cave into geopolitical pressure.While Russia largely welcomed the decision, it was roundly criticized by those in the anti-doping world. The move to ban Stepanova was widely viewed as the worst part of the judgment.The decision to refuse her entry in to the Games is incomprehensible and will undoubtedly deter whistleblowers in the future from coming forward, said Travis Tygart, CEO of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.Stepanov said his wife got a bout of the stomach flu on Sunday -- making a bad day that much worse.She was training for the Olympics, knowing that if she made it, she would not compete for a medal, the way she had in the past.Her goal is to participate, Stepanov said. In my view, she deserved to be an Olympian a lot more than when she was a doped athlete.But the odds are against her.Stepanov said there is no money to fund an appeal to CAS, which would have the last say on her possible ban.Sunday was a day to cry a little, to get disappointed, Stepanov said. But todays Monday. We feel were trying to fight for the right thing, so we wake up and start fighting again. Julio Teheran Jersey . Denis Coderre, the former federal MP who was elected mayor on Nov. 3, has drawn the ire of some Montreal Canadiens. During last nights game he tweeted: "Hello? Can we get a one-way ticket to (minor-league) Hamilton for David Desharnais please. Dale Murphy Jersey . "Were just throwing s--- at the wall hoping something sticks," said Tortorella about the possible line combinations for Fridays game against Columbus. The Canucks have lost five straight games and six of their last seven, leaving them in a logjam in the Pacific Division, currently sitting fifth - good for ninth in the Western Conference. .J. Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night. CHICAGO -- Detroit Tigers left-hander Matt Boyd will look to maintain his recent success when he takes the mound against the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.Boyd, 25, has allowed three runs or fewer in each of his past nine starts. He is 5-0 with a 2.55 ERA since July 9, which has improved his season record to 5-2 with a 4.00 ERA.Boyds impressive second half of the season has mirrored that of Detroit (75-62). The Tigers remain tied with the Baltimore Orioles for the second American League wild-card playoff spot after their 5-3, 11-inning win against the White Sox on Monday afternoon.Detroit has won six of its past seven games and 11 of its past 14.I like where were at, Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander said. I like the grit that this team has late in the season. Really, this last week or so, (weve had) a never-say-die attitude. Weve won a bunch of games where we were down, some games that we were probably losing early on in the season.Nows the right time to get hot. This is what we work so hard for.Meanwhile, the reality of another disappointing season is setting in for Chicago (65-72). The White Sox dropped to 5-12 against Detroit after the Monday loss, and they have posted a dismal 13-32 record against opponents from the AL Central since May 23.I can tell you, top to bottom, no ones happy about it, White Sox left-hander Chris Sale said. It falls on us, mostly. You just have to look at yourself in the mirror and say, What have we got to do to change it?We have to find a way to be better nextt year. David Justice Jersey. Hold your head up high, but weve got to change something.One thing the White Sox hope to maintain is their good work against Boyd. The second-year pitcher has faced Chicago three times this year and has no decisions despite an ugly 6.39 ERA.Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez is scheduled to return from the 15-day disabled list to start for Chicago. The 32-year-old veteran has been sidelined since Aug. 12 because of a strained right groin.Gonzalez is 2-6 with a 4.05 ERA in 19 games (18 starts) this season. During his career, Tigers hitters have battered him for 30 earned runs on 49 hits in 30 innings. He is 1-4 with a 9.00 ERA in eight games (six starts) against Detroit.Before his groin injury, Gonzalez was pitching well. He recorded seven consecutive quality starts from July 1 to Aug. 5 and posted a 2.76 ERA (14 earned runs in 45 2/3 innings) during that span.Gonzalez faces a difficult assignment against a Tigers team filled with hot hitters.Miguel Cabrera went 4-for-5 with two home runs in the series opener to improve his batting average to .316 with 31 home runs and 87 RBI. Justin Upton is also hit, as he is batting .339 (19-for-56) with four doubles, eight home runs and 21 RBI in his past 15 games.Honestly, Ive been on time a lot more, Upton said. Ive been giving myself a better opportunity to see the ball and put good swings on it. Thats what Ive done.
