The problem was that I think (Hamilton) had his best qualifying in a long time.Hamiltons championship lead over Rosberg was cut to nine points after Rosberg won last weekends Belgian GP.On Sunday, Hamilton will be aiming to become the first driver since Fangio in 1955 to win at Monza three consecutive years.Valtteri Bottas in a Williams qualified fifth, followed by the Red Bulls of Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen.Conditions were sticky, with the track at 40 Celsius (104 Fahrenheit) and the air at 29 C (84 F).Williams Felipe Massa -- who announced Thursday he will retire at the end of this season -- and McLarens Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button were among those eliminated in Q2.I didnt feel the power, losing on the straights unfortunately, Alonso said.Esteban Ocons Manor car stopped at the first chicane in Q1 and Kevin Magnussens Renault was again all over the track, as both were eliminated early on.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter: Cheap Air Max Plus White .C. -- Glenn Howard needed an extra end to move into the Masters Grand Slam of Curling final. Nike Air Max Plus Buy Online .

RIO DE JANEIRO -- New Zealand runner Nikki Hamblin was lying on the track, dazed after a heavy fall and with her hopes of an Olympic medal seemingly over. Suddenly, there was a hand on her shoulder and a voice in her ear: Get up. We have to finish this.It was American Abbey DAgostino, offering to help.I was like, Yup, yup, youre right. This is the Olympics Games. We have to finish this, Hamblin said.It was a scene to warm the hearts of fans during a qualifying heat of the womens 5,000 meters. Hamblin and DAgostino set aside their own hopes of making the final to look out for a fellow competitor.It started when DAgostino clipped Hamblin from behind and they both went sprawling with about 2,000 meters to go.Hamblin fell heavily on her right shoulder. DAgostino got up, but Hamblin was just lying there. She appeared to be crying. Instead of running in pursuit of the others, DAgostino crouched down and put her hand on the New Zealanders shoulder, then under her arms to help her up, and softly urged her not to quit.That girl is the Olympic spirit right there, Hamblin said of DAgostino. Ive never met her before. Like I never met this girl before. And isnt that just so amazing.
