Andre De Grasse headlines Harry Jerome track meet in Coquitlam

Healthy, confident and coming off one of the best races of his life, sprinter Andre De Grasse says he feels great.

The Olympic medalist is in B.C. this week to compete in the Harry Jerome International Track Classic at Coquitlam’s Percy Perry Stadium.

He says that race, which will feature some of the top sprinters from Canada and around the world, is just one step in his preparations for the world track and field championships in London, where the 22-year-old Canadian will probably have his last chance to beat the legendary Usain Bolt.

“I’m looking forward to London. I know it’s six weeks away, but I’m just trying to take it one race at a time,” he said. “Just gotta go out and execute my race.”

De Grasse spoke about focus ahead of his 100-metre race on Wednesday and how his focus needed to be better when it comes to starts.

“I looked back at a lot of my races, at the Olympics and said, maybe if I had a little bit better start, I could’ve maybe did a little bit better and run a little bit faster,” he said.

Other Canadian standouts competing in the Harry Jerome are Melissa Bishop, Ben Thorne, Damian Warner and Akeem Haynes.

Haynes was a 4x100 metre relay teammate of De Grasse’s in the 2016 Olympics, and they will compete against each other in the men’s 100 metre.

We are in a room watching an Olympic game and he is there on the television and in the room because he is doing the slip and slide event and he goes and he falls to the ground and now I remember the class I had and I’m telling them I used to go to birthday parties a lot but now no one invites me to none of them and the boy I tell this to shrugs his shoulders and now they are going through the friends I had on an interview basis and I am laughing because they are all saying ridiculous things and then I notice George Clooney is there and I tell him to help me because I am stuck under some conspiratorial slime and I realize he is there in the room with his old girlfriend and he is trying to force her to have sex with him and I can not move and I realize the assignment I needed to put in is not being put in and there is a child with cancer who wants to climb everest and how do you say no to him and also I need to piss but the girl next door is being very uncooperative and I must go to a bathroom that has fallen over 45 degrees.

FUTURAMA IS THE BEST

I love futurama. There’s so many great episodes and characters in this show but this post is about the episode from season 5 episode 13.

SPOILERS AHEAD.

Bender decides to enter the 3004 olympics bending. He enters as a woman since he couldn’t compete against the male athletes. He has to have a gender check to get his medals.

So he changes to a fembot. AND THROUGHOUT THE EPISODE, EVERYONE GETS BENDERS PRONOUNS RIGHT.
THIS EPISODE AIRED IN 2003. AN animated comedy sci-if programme managed to GET PRONOUNS RIGHT IN 2 0 0 3.
People can’t even get it right on TV NOW, in 2017.

Which makes me ask. If a to show could get this right in 2003, at least pronoun wise, why can’t they get it right now?

Sports Personality: 1958 winner Ian Black
In 1958, swimmer Ian Black becomes the youngest Sports Review of the Year award winner at the age of 17.

Happy Birthday Ian MacIntosh Black , born June 27th 1941 in Inverness. 

Long before David Wilkie became Scotland’s best known swimmer we had Ian Black.  This remarkable Scot aged just 9 showed an early talent for swimming taking part in the annual swim across the Moray Firth from Kessock to Inverness.  When his father’s job took the family to Aberdeen in 1953, the ideal school for Ian was Robert Gordon’s College with its own swimming pool.  By the age of 14 he was selected for the full Scottish team winning medals at Commonwealth, European, and only narrowly missing out on an Olympic medal.  
Although he never won an Olympic medal it takes nothing away from how fantastic a swimmer Black was, at the 1958 European Championships in Budapest he got gold in the 400 metres, 1500 metres freestyle and the 200 metres butterfly events. No swimmer has managed to repeat this feat.  That same year he got three more Commonwealth Games medals  gold for the 220 yards butterfly, silver for the 440 yards freestyle and silver for the 4 x 220 yards freestyle relay. The Olympic medal that eluded him was very unlucky, he posted the same time as the Australian John Konrads in the men’s 400-metre freestyle he was placed fourth!  

Ian also broke two world records during his swimming career, a proud Scot, when competing for Great Britain, he would proudly display his Scottish identity  by wearing a MacGregor tartan dressing gown poolside. 

Ian still holds one record to this day, he became BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award, the first Scot to win the award and still the youngest to hold the trophy.
His medals, titles, world and European records made Ian Black one of the finest swimmers to have come from Scotland. In November 2002 Ian Black’s achievements were recognised as he was among the first 50 men and women to be inducted in the Scottish Sports Hall of Fame.

U of A Golden Bears legend Clare Drake welcomed into Hockey Hall of Fame

Former Golden Bears hockey head coach Clare Drake, one of the most successful coaches in Canadian men’s hockey history, was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame Monday.

Drake entered the hall of fame in the builders category, along with fellow 2017 inductees Teemu Selanne, Paul Kariya, Dave Andreychuk, Mark Recchi, Danielle Goyette, and fellow builder Jeremy Jacobs.

Drake coached the University of Alberta Golden Bears hockey team for 28 seasons, beginning his tenure in 1958, according to a university news release.

Drake went on to lead the Bears to six national championships and 17 conference championships.

When Drake retired from the university in 1989, he held a 697-296-37 overall record.

Drake also coached at the professional and national level, spending two seasons coaching the WHA’s Edmonton Oilers (1975-1976), and co-coaching the 1980 Canadian men’s team for the Olympics.

He also spent time with the Winnipeg Jets, and Dallas Stars as an assistant coach.

Drake earned three medals coaching at the World Student Games, and led Canada to its first-ever Spengler Cup Gold Medal in 1984.

He is also the only coach to ever win a CIAU Men’s Hockey and Football National Championship in the same year (1967-1968).

Drake was inducted into the University of Alberta Sports Wall of Fame in 1987, was named to the Alberta Order of Excellence in 2008, and named a member of the Order of Canada in 2013.

Bolt reminds rivals: I'm the fastest man in the world

Usain Bolt will not let his “horrifying” farewell run in Jamaica undermine his confidence going into the World Championships as he seeks to sign off a stellar career in style.

The eight-time Olympic champion reminded his rivals that he remains the fastest man in the world, despite an underwhelming 10.03 seconds over 100 metres on home soil this month.

In the meantime Andre De Grasse - who took third in the 100m in Rio and silver in the 200m - clocked a wind-assisted 9.69secs in Stockholm to underline his growing threat to Bolt’s supremacy, and long-time rival Justin Gatlin won the US trials last week.

But Bolt, who will compete in Wednesday’s Golden Spike meeting in Ostrava, was defiant when asked if he would be able to keep up with the competition in his final outing on the global stage in August.

“I am the fastest man in the world so I will say yes to that,” he said, before playing down De Grasse's time in hugely beneficial conditions. 

“Every time I hear a wind-assisted time my friend NJ [Nugent Walker, Bolt’s executive manager] always calls me and says: ‘Why are we never this lucky?' We always have negative wind.

"The possibility with a strong tailwind is endless. We have always thought about it. I have never been that lucky.”

The 30-year-old admitted that anxiety got the better of him on an emotional night in Jamaica, when thousands turned out to see him run in his homeland for the final time - his modest time still enough for a fitting victory.

“I always get nervous for my first race, but I was really nervous just with the energy and the amount of people there,” he said.

“The only time I have seen the stadium full like that was the girls and boys' champs so it was emotional to come out and be there in front of my parents and best friends, it was something different.

"Race-wise it was horrifying. It was really bad. I didn’t feel smooth as I should have. Bad start. Everything was just not perfect. But over time I will feel good and get better. And I think with running two more races for the championships [in Ostrava and Monaco] I will be fine.”

im just imagining a hockey version of Brooklyn Nine-Nine:

Sidney, on the recording: Geno is going to befriend the Vulture so he lets the league participate in the Olympics again.
Bettman, slapping the table: Busted! I knew that you were faking it! I bet you don’t even like nip slips!
Geno: I can learn to love nip slips!
Bettman: You either love them or you don’t! It’s too late!

Ushijima is an olympic gold medalist in volleyball and his female s/o is a world known singer and theyre this spotlight couple. Maybe we can see his reaction the first time he saw his girlfriend's very sexual music video for a song of her's thats quiet dirty~? 😉😉

Omg, I really like this, Anon! They really would be the spotlight couple, that’s for sure. Hope you enjoy!


“Did you watch it yet?” she questioned, her voice echoing over the speaker of Ushijima’s phone and he could hear the smile in it. She was away on concert, touring in Europe right now for the release of her new music video. Usually he would have joined her for the debut, but due to his own practice regime with the olympic volleyball team, he had to miss it this time. “It’s online now.”

“Not yet,” he answered, the phone pinched between his ear and shoulder. Walking into his bedroom, he seated himself on the bed to pull off his shoes, body sore from the work he had put it through. “I will though,” he promised. And he would, he would always support what she did.

“Watch it while I’m on the phone with you,” she instructed, and he noticed the lilt in her voice as she said it, “I wanna hear your reaction.”

Giving a small noise of acknowledgement, it took him a moment to reach for his laptop and pull up the internet. They made idle conversation as they did so. How his practice went and how the team was doing. How the concert had gone the night before and what venue she was heading for next. When he found the video, he let his voice drop away, the music playing through the speakers making her own quiet so that he could focus on the footage.

The video itself was only four minutes long. But it was some of the most torturous four minutes of his entire life. For there she was on the screen, clad in a deep red lingerie that accentuated every curve of her body as she moved with the steady beat. He watched as the camera moved in on her face, her hands rising to her hair, eyes looking deep into the camera - no past the camera, straight at him.

A shiver ran straight up his spine and he was sure a whimper passed between his parted lips at the sight. In that moment, he wanted to be with her, he wanted nothing else than to be with her. And he wanted her in that very outfit, but instead of for her video, he wanted it all for himself. He selfishly wanted her laid out before him on the bed that he sat on now and he wanted her to do whatever she wanted to him. 

Her voice was beautiful, it always was, and it was still beautiful when they video ended and he heard her question how he liked it across the line. It took a minute for his mind to drag itself away from his fantasies. Clearing his throat, he tried to hide the goal evidence at just how aroused he was and answered with a simple, “it was good.”

She gave a laugh which held a sultry tone and his fingers twitched in response to it. “And how about I tell you want I’ll do to you when you get back,” it wasn’t a question, nor did Ushijima expect it to be. Shoving the laptop aside, he focused on only her voice, letting himself get lost in what was to come.

Bolt brings sunshine and heat on his last trip to Golden Spike meeting

PRAGUE (Reuters) - As Usain Bolt deals with the emotions of closing the curtain on his record-breaking career, one thing that won’t trouble him as he prepares for his ninth and final appearance at the Ostrava Golden Spike meeting is the heat, he said on Monday.

The multiple Olympic and world gold medalist joked that sweltering temperatures and sunshine in the Czech Republic feels more like home in Jamaica as he prepares to compete in the 100 meter race on Wednesday.
“I am happy that I got to come here, it’s one of my favorite meets, and to be here for the last time, it’s a great feeling,” the 30 year-old told a news conference broadcast live on the event’s Facebook page.
“For me the weather stands out… I am shocked that it’s so warm, I guess I brought some sun from Jamaica.”
The double sprint world record holder, who has amassed eight Olympic golds and 13 world championship medals, will take his final bow in August in London, where he will only run the shorter sprint despite having a wild card for the 200 meters.
But Bolt confirmed he would not run the 200 meter event in London and said he had no regrets about stepping aside as his glittering career winds down.
“For me now, I’ve done everything I wanted to, now it’s coming to an end and I am fine with it, definitely looking forward to coming back to Ostrava, and just watch, to be part of the crowd, to see the younger generation coming up,” Bolt said.

anonymous asked:

Do you think that WOGA gymnasts have become more or less competitive since Valeri stopped coaching and Laurent and Cecile became involved? Did Valeri do much in the Olympic selection process/camps/anything to get an idea of what he'll be like as the new US coordinator? Do you think him organizing vs coaching will earn him a better reputation?

They had a girl on the Olympic team and two girls on Worlds team this past quad, which frankly is better than they were doing with Valeri alone (after Evgeni stopped coaching) so I’m gonna go with no

If he did that’s a big fat conflict of interest alarm considering WOGA had two girls that his family was close with involved in the selection process. I think that between his experience as developmental coordinator and taking several gymnasts through the selection processes as a coach, he was probably well prepared without being an Olympic selector this time around

I don’t think his reputation is *bad* per se outside of the gymternet - out in the actual gymnastics world of coaches and athletes I think people look more at his many positive accomplishments than at the situations with Becca and Katelyn + the explosive diarrhea incident. I think the effect of the coordinator position on his reputation will be contingent on what he does while coordinator - does he treat the girls fairly, does the team win, etc. and that remains to be seen, so it’s not really predictable atm.

Please, who are you talking to ... who is JM?

Jean Marc Genereux. He worked with VM on their SD for the last Olympic season and was featured on the stupid show.

o ya i had this longish talk with my dad a few days ago where we talked abt how each of our minds work and it didnt make me forgive him but it did help me to understand how his brain works a little better. also i learned that my brother at the age of 17 is like one of the best rowers in the state/country? like he could be in the olympics in 10 years or so?? which is funny in some ways bc despite being the more intelligent & emotionally intelligent sibling he might end up more successful than me in terms of how extended family will talk abt us. esp bc im already gay/gnc & mentally ill
