straight birdies fro Antworten

The slogan of the 2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games is Are You Ready?Benoit Huot is prepared to answer that question by making host city Toronto his second home. Ousmane Dembele France Jersey .One of the decorated Paralympians in Canadian history, Huot trains at the new Aquatics Centre nearly every day and often has two pool sessions in a day.The Montreal swimmer owns 19 medals, including nine gold, from four Paralympic Summer Games. Retired wheelchair racer Chantal Petitclerc is the only Canadian who has won more with 21. Huot shares an apartment with other swimmers near the CIBC Pan Am/Parapan Am Aquatics Centre and Field House in the suburb of Scarborough. He takes the train home on weekends to Montreal, where the 30-year-old owns a house with fiancee Annie Couture.You want to think you did everything you could to be ready when its really game-day, Huot told The Canadian Press. Thats what Im trying to do.Huot pondered retirement after collecting a medal of every colour and setting a world record in the 200-metre individual medley at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London.But the draw of racing in a Parapan Am Games in his home country in 2015 was a pull towards the Rio de Janiero Paralympics in 2016.Competing in the 2013 International Paralympic Committee world swimming championships in his hometown of Montreal was another incentive to stay in the pool after London.Training in Toronto fills a number of needs for Huot, not the least of which is gaining an advantage for the Parapan Ams from Aug. 7-15.Itll feel even more like home when the Pan Ams come around, Huot said. It does make a difference knowing where things are.That excitement when you get to the facility for the first time and sometimes feeling that extra stress you dont need, I wont get that. I know where the ready room will be, I know where the doping will be.Its the same thing in the water, he continued. The way I do my turns when I swim backstroke, I look at the ceiling of the pool and all my references are there. I know how to feel good in that pool from lane one to lane 10. Whatever lane Im going to be in . . . Ill feel confident. Those small things for us as swimmers make a big difference.The opening of Pan Am swim venue in October also solved a problem in Huots training environment in Montreal. The ongoing renovations on his home pool at the Olympic Park Sports Centre will continue well into 2015.Huot felt he could no longer afford the disruption in his training with Rio coming over the horizon.I said I cant wait for this. I need to take responsibility in making sure Im ready for 2015 and obviously 2016 and the best place right now in the country would be Toronto, he explained.To be ready for 2016, I cant start in September 2015. What Im doing now is going to pay off in 2016 as well.Huot was born with a club foot and competes in the S10 classification for athletes with minor physical impairments.Hes training in Toronto with a group of able-bodied athletes including Torontos Martha McCabe, a world championship medallist in breaststroke. Theyre coached by Ben Titley, who is Swimming Canadas national-team coach.But Huot maintains his relationship with Montreal coach Pierre Lamy because Lamy will be coach Huot when he races the 200 I.M. and 100-metre backstroke in Toronto this summer.Huot hasnt raced the 400-metre freestyle since winning Paralympic silver in 2012, but he may add it to his Parapan Am set list.He collected seven medals, including three gold, at the 2007 Parapan Ams in Rio. Huot didnt compete in Guadalajara, Mexico, in 2011 because those Games held in November of that year conflicted with his training for the 2012 Paralympics.Paralympic, Parapan Am and Commonwealth Games medals were among the eight stolen from Huots house last year while he was away training in Richmond, B.C.He says hes unlikely to ever recover them as Longueuil police have closed the investigation. Huot is more hopeful about obtaining replacement medals.Were talking to the International Paralympic Committee and Commonwealth Games Federation to try to replace the medals, Huot said. So far things are looking good. We havent got confirmation yet.For a man who has trained his entire career in Montreal, relocating to Toronto was an adjustment. Via Rail helps out with rail passes to go home for short stints, but his relationship with his fiancee is now mostly long-distance.Its not easy being away, especially for her, Huot said. For me, Im living my dream. Im having a great time in the water. I know Im towards the end of my career. Ive had a great adventure so far.I want to take this opportunity for the next 18, 19 months and feel like its the last time I am doing this.Huot is mindful of his legacy in sport at this point in his career. He completed a degree in communications at University of Quebec-Montreal last year and worked with CBC on their coverage of the 2014 Winter Paralympics in Sochi, Russia.He says the 2010 Winter Paralympics in Vancouver and Whistler, B.C., and the 2013 IPC world swim championship in Montreal raised the profile of Paralympic sport, but the impact was limited to those regions of the country.He sees the Greater Toronto Area as another frontier for Paralympic sport. The Pan Am Games will hopefully have good coverage and will be able to give Canadians a better idea of what we are doing, which is kind of a goal, or a mandate that I have at the end of my career, Huot explained.Yes, Im still an athlete, but theres not a better way to do these things than being the athlete doing it. Corentin Tolisso Jersey . The 21-year-old Canadian earned a spot in his third career ATP final on Saturday thanks to his first Top 10 victory of the new tennis season, a 6-4, 6-4 win over world no. 10 Nicolas Almagro of Spain. Kylian Mbappe Jersey . No, the San Antonio star didnt announce retirement plans during an off day at the NBA Finals on Wednesday. . Price also posted the longest shutout sequence since 1960 at 164:19 minutes. He stopped a combined 55 shots in Canadas final two games and 70 of 71 shots in Canadas three elimination games, allowing only a breakaway goal to Lauris Darzins of Latvia. For his efforts, Price was named best goalkeeper by the tournament directorate. Prices outstanding play is marred only by the extremely strong defensive play of Canadas top six defencemen; Shea Weber, Duncan Keith, Drew Doughty, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Alex Pietrangelo and Jay Bouwmeester.Alex Noren stormed into a two-shot lead at the halfway stage of the Nedbank Golf Challenge after a historic second day at the Gary Player Country Club. Leaderboard Nedbank Golf Challenge Fabrizio Zanotti made the first ace in the 35-year history of the tournament, and that achievement was soon followed by the events first albatross courtesy of Lasse Jensen, but it was the red-hot Noren who ended the round in the outright lead. Alex Noren put himself on course for a fourth win of the season Noren, who became the first three-time winner on the European Tour this season at last months British Masters, fired a 67 to reach eight under par, while home favourite Louis Oosthuizen carded a best-of-the-week 66 to earn a share of second with compatriots George Coetzee, Jaco Van Zyl, Chris Wood and Zanotti.

Noren fired a superb 67 to earn a two-shot lead The second round finished in darkness following an earlier delay of an hour and 42 minutes due to the threat of lightning, and Noren came out firing on the resumption as he made five birdies on the back nine to romp home in 32.The in-form Swede picked up three shots in four holes immediately after the turn, although he did blot his card with a bogey at the 12th, and further gains at 15 and 17 lifted him to the top of the field. Highlights of the second round at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City. Noren took over the clubhouse lead from Oosthuizen, who made the biggest move of the day after producing the first bogey-free round of the week to vault 19 places up the leaderboard.The former Open champion birdied the fourth and sixth and then reeled off three in a row around the turn and, although the putts dried up down the stretch, he managed to get one to drop for another birdie at the 17th to move to six under par. Henrik Stenson remains six clear of Danny Willett despite an erratic 72 Coetzee made his fourth birdie of the round at the closing hole to cap a second straight 69, while Zanotti provided the early fireworks when he followed birdies at the opening two holes with his perfect blow at the fourth - holing his seven-iron at the 210-yard par-three to register the 40th ace of the European Tour season.

The Paraguayan looked certain to be in the lead by the close of play when he birdied 10 and 14 to get to eight under, but he dropped shots at each of the final two holes to sign for a 68. Louis Oosthuizen produced the first flawless round of the tournament Wood, like Oosthuizen, kept a bogey off his card and picked up three birdies in five holes to close out a front-nine 33 before he parred every hole of the inward half in a resolute 69, while Van Zyl made it a five-way tie for second after mixing four birdies with a lone bogey.Alejandro Canizares birdied the final two holes to card a 68 to earn solo seventh on five under, but Ross Fisher dropped to four under after a poor finish in the fading light. Fabrizio Zanotti enjoyed the first hole-in-one in the events history The Englishman moved to within two of the lead after making three straight birdies from the eighth, and he responded to a bogey at 12 with a good putt for a three at 17 before he pulled his second into the hazard at the last and ran up a double-bogey six for a 72.Fisher is alongside Matthew Southgate, who also birdied eight, nine and 10 and picked up two more at the 16th and 18th to return a 68, while Branden Grace moved into the top 10 with a five-birdie 69. Italys Fabrizio Zanotti holes out at the fourth in Sun City to take the lead in the Nedbank golf Challenge Ryder Cup star Andy Sullivan is a further stroke adrift as he also fired a 69, and Jensen produced the shot of the day shortly after dropping shots at the 10th and 12th holes.The young Dane struck a mighty three-iron from 240 yards out at the long 14th, and his ball took a kindly bounce in the fringe and rolled into the cup for the third albatross on the European Tour this season.New on-air time: Due to the threat of bad weather on Saturday, live coverage of the third round will now start at 7am on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf.
