LONDON - The IOC will allow a marathon runner born in what is now South Sudan to
compete under the Olympic flag at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Pat Angerer Womens Jersey . The IOC executive
board agreed Saturday to allow U.S.-based Guor Marial to take part as an
independent athlete. The IOC says Marial has no passport and is not represented
by a national Olympic committee. South Sudan gained independence last year after
breaking away from Sudan. It doesnt yet have a recognized Olympic body. Marial
moved to the United States as a refugee when he was a child. He qualified for
the Olympics by running a marathon in 2 hours, 14 minutes, 32 seconds in 2011.
He has improved on that time since. IOC spokesman Mark Adams says it is the
first case of its kind at the Olympics. Jerry Hughes Jersey . That said, the
sanctions adopted by the OHL that include suspensions and fines for the serial
scrapper are clearly targeting the one-dimensional player. Donnie Avery Youth Jersey . The website
Capgeek.com reports that the deal is worth $21.25 million, with an average
annual value of $4. http://www.shoptheindianapoliscolts.com/jerraud-powers-jersey

et/5:30pm pt. Reggie Wayne Womens Jersey . —A judge said
Thursday that he would overrule an objection by Fox Sports and approve a process
for the Los Angeles Dodgers to sell the media rights to future games as part of
the teams plan to exit bankruptcy. Adam Vinatieri Jersey . Ellis walked, drove
in two runs and extended his hitting streak to 12 games, while Cust went 2-for-4
for the Athletics, who have taken the first three games of the set after a
six-game slide. Anderson (7-6) yielded two runs—one earned—on eight hits
while walking one and striking out six to end the season with his 18th career
victory, the 3rd most wins by a pitcher before the age of 23 in Oakland
franchise history. MONTREAL —It turned out to be Justin Allgaiers big day and
Jacques Villeneuves nightmare at the NAPA Auto Parts 200. Local favourite
Villeneuve was safety ahead after the last of a succession of caution flags late
in the NASCAR Nationwide series race on Saturday. Then he was bumped and passed
by Allgaier on the final lap of the 2.7-mile road course named after his late
father, Gilles Villeneuve. In a race extended from 74 to 81 laps due to frequent
restarts, Allgair took the checkered flag just ahead of Sam Hornish Jr., with a
steaming Villeneuve dropped to third. “I got run into,” said Villeneuve, a
native of Iberville, Que., who came close twice before to winning the Montreal
race only to meet with misfortune near the end. “Into Turn 6, I think it was
Allgaier who hit me really hard and that was it, which is very frustrating
because our car was untouchable.” He felt the hit was intentional, but it was
not ruled illegal by race stewards. Allgaier claimed his third title in 130
career races in Nationwide, which is one step below NASCARs top Sprint Cup
series. It was his first win of the year. The American said the bump was
accidental, but that justice won out in the end. Allgaiers teammate on the
Turner Motorsports team for the weekend was veteran Alex Tagliani of Lachenaie,
Que., who was in the lead on the 67th lap when he was nosed into a spin by the
hard-charging Villeneuve. Tagliani ended up 22nd. “I dont know if (Villeneuve)
went into protect mode or if he was running out of gas, but he went really slow
and I had too much of a head of steam,” said Allgaier. “Im sure hes not happy
about that, but I know the No. 30 car (Tagliani) had the lead and he was taken
out by that car (Villeneuves). So I guess what goes around, comes around.”
Tagliani was just as harsh toward Villeneuve, who has not made many friends in
NASCAR with his aggressive driving. “I thought I was in position to win a race
on home soil but he wanted to win so bad that he forgot about manners, respect,
how to drive on a racetrack and how to pass,” said Tagliani, who was taking a
one-race break from the IndyCar circuit. “Its too bad because hes losing his
reputation more and more as his career advances.” A race that has become known
for crashes and wild endings lived up to its billing in its sixth edition, which
was run in near-perfect racing conditions. The crowd estimated at 60,000 saw
Danica Patrick hold the lead for more than 20 laps before running into a
succession of car problems. And Villeneuve there to take over through one
restart after another as cars banged either into each other or into the concrete
walls around the tight track. Allgaiers team came prepared for mayhem, and opted
to keep his car well-fuelled in case the race went longer than scheduuled. Coby Fleener Jersey. “The race played out
perfectly,” he said, after nudging Hornish and Villeneuve, who were Penske
teammates for the race, off the top step of the podium. Nationwide series leader
Elliott Sadler was fourth and veteran Ron Fellows of Toronto, who has at times
helped Allgaier learn the ins and out of road racing, was fifth. Villeneuve has
not won a race in any series since he took the Formula One title in 1997, and
has not won at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve since he was a hot prospect in the
Formula Atlantic series in 1993. The 41-year-old has not had a steady ride in
recent years, but picks up work in NASCAR for its few road races each year. A
subplot to this race was the lingering animosity between Patrick and Villeneuve.
The last time they were in the same race at Road America in June, Villeneuve
bumped her off the track while she was trying to equal her NASCAR-best fourth
place. But Patricks run of recent bad luck continued. The sports best-known
female driver developed steering, suspension and gearbox problems that finally
forced a long stay in the garage. She returned to the track, but was six laps
behind the field. Villeneuve passed into second place on Lap 32 to set up a
head-to-head duel with Patrick, who had run over a shoe apparently thrown on the
track by a fan. But Dexter Stacey of Kahnawake, Que., hit a wall and brought out
the pace car again. Earlier Stacey had nearly backed into Villeneuve after a
spinout. After that restart, Patricks steering wheel went loose and Villeneuve
squeezed past her on the 40th. Patrick told her pit crew “somethings almost
ready to break,” but they left the decision to her and she managed to stay out
until she ran over a curb, causing another caution at Lap 45. After repairs, she
rejoined in 30th spot, tried to battle back but then lost her gearbox. After
more cautions, Tagliani crept back into the lead on the 63rd, only to be pushed
off by Villeneuve. “He was really slow, just blocking on the inside, and the
guys behind me were catching up,” said Villeneuve. “We tangled a bit. “I thought
it would be all right so I didnt get off the gas. I didnt want to cars behind me
to get to me. I ended up turning him around. Thats a shame. That wasnt my
intention. At that point I couldnt stay behind him.” Sadler now leads the series
by 22 points over Ricky Stenhouse Jr., who was 12th. Fellows, the 2008 champion,
ran near the front most of the day, but his chances were compromised when he was
bumped off the track by Kyle Busch on Lap 67. Andrew Ranger of Roxton Pond,
Que., retired after 58 laps. It was a rough day for Patrick Carpentier of
Joliette, Que., who came out of retirement for the race. He retired nine laps in
after a pit stop with brake trouble that wasnt able to be repaired. ’ ’ ’
