Canadas Derek Drouin won a bronze medal in mens high jump Tuesday at the London
2012 Olympic Games. Packers Clay Matthews Jersey . In an
unconventional finish, Drouin finished in a three-way tie for third place with
Qatars Mutaz Essa Barshim and Great Britains Robert Grabarz . All three jumpers
earned bronze medals. “I dont think I have ever been in a tie that was so big,”
Drouin said after the event. “We kind of predicted that with the increments
being so steep that there might be a tie.” The Corunna, Ont., native missed all
three attempts at 2.33 metres. He locked up the bronze when Jamie Nieto of the
United States missed twice at 2.33 metres and then once at 2.36. “I had to sit
there and wait for (Nieto) of the USA to miss his jump to confirm the bronze
medal,”Drouin told Athletics Canada. “That was really hard.” It was Drouins
first Olympic Games appearance and Canadas first high jump medal since Greg Joy
earned silver at Montreal 1976. “It was awesome,” he said. “My two sisters and
my parents were here and the flag that I carried round had been signed by all my
friends to say good luck.” The 22-year-old is a student at Indiana University,
where he is a three-time NCAA champion in high jump and 2011 NCAA National Mens
Field Athlete of the Year. Russias Ivan Ukhov won the gold medal while Erik
Kynard of the United States finished second. Ukhov was involved in the events
strangest moment when he was scrambling to find his competition tank top right
before his jump. With time running out, Ukhov managed to find a blue shirt and
successfully land his attempt in less than conventional fashion. “I am grateful
to the judges that gave me time to look for the T-shirt,” Ukhov said. Michael
Mason of Nanoose Bay, B.C., cleared 2.29 metres but placed eighth overall after
missing two of his attempts at that height. Canada now has 11 medals at London
2012.   A.J. Hawk Jersey . A scrambling Cutler took a
helmet-to-helmet hit from Tim Dobbins after unleashing a pass on third down at
midfield late in the first half Sunday night. Womens Randall Cobb Jersey . Vandor, 37, and
Jarvis, 28, fell behind the top two crews. Questions arose as to whether the duo
would post a late sprint—asignature stint of Canadian coach Mike Spracklens
crews—but rather than expendtoo much energy, they decided to reserve that power
for the repechage. http://www.nflpackersgearshop.com/aaron-rodgers-jersey/
. Speaking to the media on team photo day, DeBoer spoke of his wingers back
ailment. “It was quite a bit under 100 percent,” DeBoer said. Limited Clay Matthews Jersey . The player,
who had stops at three different schools while in college before being drafted
by the Rangers, is now in his seventh season with Texas. His new deal begins in
2013 and includes a club option for 2018. “I had one backpack, one pair of
shoes, hiked from college to college. Clay Matthews Jersey . Polish qualifier Jerzy
Janowicz came up short on his first try, but not before leaving the impression
that he could well earn another chance soon.FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The Patriots
spent their first work day of 2008 with the same attitude they had in 2007:
forget yesterday, focus on today and dont worry about tomorrow. One meeting at a
time plus one practice at a time will equal, they hope, the only 19-0 season in
NFL history. Junior Seau took an extremely shortsighted view Thursday when
players returned from a three-day break. The 38-year-old linebacker stood in his
football pants at his locker before donning his pads and was asked if the team
has better practices equipped like that than with lighter gear. “Well find that
answer out in another two hours,” he said. “There arent any guarantees.” Coach
Bill Belichick opened his first news conference of the year with a pleasant, but
telling, greeting. “Happy New Year, everyone,” he said. “Were definitely in
one.” For New England, 16-0 occurred last year – just the winning numbers in the
lottery that earned home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. Now there
are 12 teams left and all are 0-0. That prompted Belichick to finally use the
“U” word that rarely, if ever, crossed his lips when his team was the only one
that was undefeated. “Its a privilege, of course, to be involved in the second
season here in the NFL, the new one where everybodys undefeated and were all
starting at the bottom,” he said before the Patriots first practice since their
38-35 win over the New York Giants last Saturday night. The Patriots have been
at the top all season – from their 38-14 opening win at the New York Jets to the
last victory in the same stadium that wrapped up the first 16-0 regular season.
Thats one for the record books, not for the players who produced it. “We dont
care. It doesnt matter,” safety Rodney Harrison said. “What happened in the past
happened in the past. “You really have to just focus on the here and the now,
and no one cares about 16-0. No one cares about what weve done. Its about what
were going to do.” On Thursday, they worked on their own game, eliminating
mistakes and figuring out how to improve. They cant zero in on their opponent in
the divisional game Jan. 12 until after this weekends AFC wild-card games:
Jacksonville at Pittsburgh on Saturday night and Tennessee at San Diego on
Sunday. Members of Belichicks staff are studying the tthree teams the Patriots
might play. Packers Randall Cobb Jersey. The lowest
remaining seed among No. 4 Pittsburgh, No. 5 Jacksonville and No. 6 Tennessee
will visit Gillette Stadium on Jan. 12. Several Patriots plan to watch the AFC
games at home. Belichick said he wasnt sure where hed catch the Saturday night
game that, barring a Tennessee upset the next day, would determine New Englands
opponent. In a sports bar, perhaps? “Yeah, thats kind of what I was thinking,”
he said with a smile. “Maybe hit a couple of them – first half, second half. Get
a different flavour for it.” But, seriously, he doesnt find scouting from
telecasts all that helpful. “Its hard to see the game from the coaching
standpoint, the way we need to see it,” Belichick said. “But its interesting to
see how it goes. “Its AFC playoffs, so were interested in that, but well wait
until we get the game tapes and break those down rather than try to break it
down off TV.” Seau still has friends on the Chargers team he played with for the
first 13 of his 18 seasons and lives in the San Diego region in the off-season.
“Obviously, Ill be watching San Diego, cheering for them,” he said. “Ive got my
popcorn, everything on timer, ready to go.” Then it will be time to get serious.
By Sunday night, New England can begin preparing for its opponent, who will be
trying to ruin the perfect season by handing the Patriots their first loss since
last years AFC championship game at Indianapolis. They know the intensity and
the stakes will be higher than in the regular season. But that stretch, and the
concentration on just the next game, prepared them for this stage. “Weve been
doing it from the beginning,” cornerback Ellis Hobbs said. “Every game is like,
1-0, 1-0, 1-0, 1-0. “So, before you become 1-0, what are you? Zero and zero. So
its like this is just a smooth transition.” Before the playoffs even start, the
Patriots must focus on a Friday practice. No need to look beyond that – or
before that. “A lot of the things that happened last year really havent sunk
in,” Seau said. “Because of that, what you have to do (is) just keep on
pressing. Every day, keep on pressing. “If we are able to do what we need to do
next week, then we afford ourselves another week of employment.” ’ ’ ’
