RIO DE JANEIRO -- The Australia Olympic Committee has laid down new stringent security protocols for its athletes that involve declaring Ipanema and Copacabana beaches out of bounds after nightfall. Green Capitals Jerseys .The decision comes soon after confirmation came from the United States Olympic Committee that four American swimmers, including six-time gold medalist Ryan Lochte, were held up at gunpoint early Sunday morning.Australia Olympic chiefs have already hit out at the levels of security in Rio, with an AOC spokesperson saying on Aug. 6: The host nation is responsible for the safety of the 10,500 athletes who are in Rio right now, and it is just not good enough.His comments followed two Australian rowing coaches being robbed on Ipanema Beach shortly after the opening ceremony.With a number of Australian athletes now enjoying well-deserved downtime after finishing their events, Kitty Chiller -- Australias chef du mission -- has spoken to the various team directors to refine their security protocols.Security is our primary concern for our athletes and team members, Chiller said. [Security director] Greg Nance met with our team directors and for those sports who have finished their competition, we have introduced further security protocols, especially for those traveling to the Ipanema and Copacabana area to ensure above all else we keep our team members safe.We reiterated our initial protocols, which is they should travel in groups of three. We have put now the actual sand on the Ipanema and Copacabana beaches off limits [from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.]. There has been an increase in petty criminal -- but still criminal -- activity on the beaches.If travelling at night after dark -- between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. -- that is only by vehicle, not by foot even if youre going 400 or 500 meters.The team managers are doing a great job, but we reiterated the importance of someone within the team knowing where the athletes are at any point in time.Chiller said another protocol was not to wear a team uniform when out on a recreational activity, while athletes have been advised to head out at night in the Barra neighborhood rather than going toward Ipanema or Copacabana.Swimmer Mitch Larkin, who won silver in the 200-meter backstroke, said it was a little disappointing that these security protocols were needed but said health and safety are the most important things in life and these guidelines are fantastic.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A little home goodness the week of Thanksgiving sits well with Mark Fox.The Georgia basketball coach guided the Bulldogs (3-1) into the championship game of the CBE Hall of Fame Classic and will face a tall task Tuesday he actually welcomes.Although the final-round opponent will be No. 5 Kansas (3-1), Fox will get to play an opponent he is familiar with after growing up in the southwest Kansas town of Garden City. He obtained his masters degree at Kansas, where he frequented practices when Roy Williams was coach. Fox also coached at Kansas State as a young assistant.Kansas is the benchmark for great basketball, Fox said. Theres KU and theres UK, and theyre both blue, and theyre both terrific. But I have the utmost respect for the history and tradition of Kansas basketball because I grew up watching it.The chance to coach against the Jayhawks was facilitated by an 81-73 semifinal win Monday over George Washington. The Bulldogs recovered from a 36-35 halftime deficit behind 18 points apiece from senior guard J.J. Frazier and junior forward Yante Maten.One key for the Bulldogs came after Fox called for something he knew Williams detested from watching those Kansas practices, a zone defense.It was really back and forth for much of the game, Fox said. I thought it was our move to the zone, which makes my skin curl, is what really helped us. We had a hard time guarding them for a minute in man-to-man and the zone seemed to help us.Maten leads Georgia in scoring and rebounding with averages of 20.8 and 8.5. Frazier adds an 18.8-point average as the Bulldogs other scorer averaging in double figures.A chance for Georgia, picked fourth in the SEC, to play Kansas is just another special element about the CBE Classic.On Frriday, two of the programs legends, standout forward Dominique Wilkins and coach Hugh Durham, were inducted into the College Basketball Hall of Fame, which is connected to Sprint Center.

Freshman guard Josh Jackson netted 22 points to pace Kansas, the first time senior point guard Frank Mason, who added 20, did not lead the Jayhawks in scoring.Several of Jacksons points came off thunderous dunks.I dunk so hard so nobody challenges me when I go to the basket, Cussell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder.Jackson said one of the qualities he can bring the Jayhawks is toughness, and said that could become Kansas identity.If so, they will need more production underneath. Their two frontcourt starters, senior Landen Lucas and sophomore Carlton Bragg, combined for just seven points against UAB, though they did snag 11 rebounds. A 7-foot freshman backup, Udoka Azubuike, matched Jacksons team-high of seven boards.Weve got five good perimeter players, but weve got to find some way to make a basket inside, Kansas coach Bill Self said.Kansas stands 32-6 all-time at Sprint Center.
