AMSTERDAM -- Dafne Schippers won the 100 meters at the European championships with ease Friday, speeding away from all opposition to clinch her first title of the championships. Air Max 270 Hot Punch Light Bone .On a chilly, windy night at the Olympic Stadium, she finished in 10.90 seconds, which was all the more impressive since silver medalist Ivet Lalova-Collio crossed a massive .30 seconds behind her.She immediately thrust her finger in the air, clearly No. 1 when it comes to European sprinting but also the biggest star at the championships for the adoring 22,000-strong sellout crowd.It was quite windy so it was difficult to set a good time, Schippers said. She will be running the 4x100 relays on Sunday but did not compete in the 200, where she is the world champion, so as not to overexert herself.At next months Olympics, she will run both sprints and the relays. I am shaping up well for Rio, she said.If Schippers performed to expectations, Olympic pole vault champion and world record holder Renaud Lavillenie did not. The Frenchman failed to clear his opening height with the gold medal at stake and lost his title.He only started jumping at 5.75 meters, with Robert Sobera holding the lead at 5.60. Instead of a fourth straight title for the Frenchman, it was the first major gold for the Pole. Czech Jan Kudlicka won silver on a countback.During warmup, I cleared 5.80 two times without problems, Lavillenie said, but he could not master the swirling gusts.The wind was making things very difficult for us, he said.Sobera, however, didnt complain. Maybe the wind was a problem but for me it was not very disturbing.For an athlete used to dominating with ease, it was a devastating loss for Lavillenie, barely a month before the Olympics.I will have to work hard now and try to do well in Rio, he said.In the medal standings, Turkey shot to the top with two more golds from foreign-born athletes -- Polat Kemboi Arikan in the 10,000 and Yasmani Copello Escobar in the 400 hurdles. Turkey has three gold and eight medals overall, and leads Britain -- 3 golds, 7 overall -- going into the concluding weekend.On a hot-and-cold night for France, Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad recaptured the steeple chase title he lost two years ago for taking his vest off in celebration before crossing the line. He kicked with on lap to go and won easily with a more subdued celebration of outstretched arms crossing the line.It was the same feeling for the Dutch. Before the Schippers finale, it had seemed like Churandy Martina had clinched a Dutch double when he added the 200 gold to his 100 title which he won on Thursday. But he was disqualified for stepping outside his lane and Bruno Hortelano of Spain took gold instead.Martyn Rooney won Britains third gold at the championships, coming back from behind to win the 400 meters in a defense of his title.Rooney won in 45.29 seconds, edging Czech Pavel Maslak by .07 while Liemarvin Bonevacia of the Netherlands took bronze.In the women hammers throw, Anita Wlodarczyk continued her domination of the event, with a throw of 78.14 meters for her third European gold to add to the world title and record. Only an Olympic title is still missing from her resume. Her longtime rival Betty Heidler of Germany took silver.On Thursday, Greg Rutherford in the long jump and Dina Asher-Smith in the 200 got Britains first titles in the five-day event. Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit Triple Noir . 24 Baylor in a Big 12 clash between teams trending in opposite directions. Andrew Wiggins made 10-of-12 from the foul line and scored 17 for Kansas (14-4, 5-0 Big 12), which capped a stretch of four straight games against ranked opponents unscathed. Buy Air Max 270 .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. . The mixed zone is not a place to make friends. While Australia lurch through a wide range of selection conundrums ranging from resting bowlers to Steven Smith saying there is no-one banging down the door domestically and now the sudden stepping down of Rod Marsh, South Africa are seemingly spoilt for choice in a remarkable change of fortune from last summers struggles. Back then, it seemed South Africa were touching the bottom of their talent pool. Now, that bottom has been proven false and they have options in every discipline.Instead of delight in any schadenfreude, convener Linda Zondi remained mindful of the cycles that a selection committee can go through. One thing I have learned in this position as convener of selectors is that its a thankless job. You have to understand the position you hold. Either way, there will be issues. I dont want to get involved too much in the Australian selection but as long as we are happy where we are, I am comfortable. There will be hard times going forward. Im happy with the team, the environment, the players and the way they have performed for us. Its excellent, he said.Zondi was appointed in July last year, after serving on his predecessor Andrew Hudsons panel, and his first task was to pick the squad to tour India. On that trip, South Africa lost both Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander to injuries, prompting a revolving door of fast bowlers that were used through the summer. Kagiso Rabada made his first appearance in Mohali, Chris Morris and Hardus Viljoen debuted against England and Kyle Abbott yo yo-ed in and out of the side. At the other end of the team sheet, there was pressure to find an opening batsman when Stiaan van Zyl struggled and its not as though everything in between was settled.Dane Vilas was used that time after Quinton de Kock was not included in the India Test squad because of losing form earlier in the year. Like van Zyl, Vilas also battled. Instead of recalling de Kock immediately, the gloves were given to AB de Villiers who responded with complaints about workload. In addition to that, both Faf du Plessis and JP Duminy lost form and were dropped in turns, leaving the middle order lacking muscle.Before Zondi and his panel could begin to find a solution, ahead of the New Zealand series this August, they were hit by another requirement. They needed to meet transformation targets too. The system seemed set to fail but the selectors have come out smiliing with targets met and a winning team. Nike Air Max 270 For Sale. How did they achieve that?The board makes policy, and our role is to implement those policies, Zondi said. When we got to the stage where the policies were passed, we were in the position where the best represented South Africa, regardless of any target or colour. All the players deserve to be there and weve got young guys that are coming through to add to the senior squad.The panel was helped by the return of Steyn - albeit temporarily - and Philander, the second coming of Duminy, the ability of du Plessis to step up and the coming of age of de Kock, Temba Bavuma and Rabada - but theyve also made some brave calls. Dane Piedt was dropped for the Australia Tests for two rookie spinners and Morne Morkel, battling fitness concerns, has not yet been recalled.Those decisions were not easy but Zondi explained that they were made with the focus on combinations and conditions. We are looking at conditions and seeing how we feel, and how the players suit a particular role. The combination is important.Crucially for South Africa they have been able to toggle their combinations because they have enough players in each department. Their attack includes seamers who offer speed, swing and seam movement; they have an offspinner in Duminy, a left-arm spinner in Keshav Maharaj and a wristspinner in Tabraiz Shamsi plus they have attacking batsmen like de Kock and Rilee Rossouw to Bavumas more cautious style.That has allowed them to compile as diverse a squad as possible and, having studied the domestic set-up, Zondi believes the trend will continue.You can only make those decisions when you know you have a good enough back-up in whatever role you are looking at. Domestically, I am happy with what Ive seen. The stronger the franchise matches are, the better for South Africa A and the Proteas.We have a lot of guys, who are matric (final year or school) and performing at franchise level and guys that have been in the system for a while are dominating. Another benefit that I see is that weve got good coaches so its a good combination of the two. We are in a position where players in every single role is available. Its just a matter of us taking those guys to that next level and seeing how we move on. NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Jerseys NFL ChinaWholesale NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
