Canadian Brent Hayden easily advanced through the 100-metre freestyle heats on
Tuesday, posting a time of 48. Derek Newton Jersey .53 seconds—the
fifth-fastest of the morning races. Hayden, the 2007 World champion and 2011
World silver medallist in the event, was left disappointed at Beijing 2008. A
hot favourite headed into that competition, he swam poorly in the semi-final to
finish 14th overall. Now back for his third Olympic Games, Hayden, 28, is
hopeful of a better finish. “In Beijing I htink I just went in with a little too
much confidence thinking I was good enough to save the energy and still make the
final,” Hayden told CTVOlympics. “(Its important to) just know that everybody is
trying to knock you out.” Haydens time was not the fastest of the trials—that
honour went to American Nathan Adrian in 48.19—but just 0.34 seconds out of
first, the swimmer from Mission, B.C.,  was very much in the mix. Canada has
never won an Olympic medal in the mens 100m freestyle. “No matter what happens
tonight I know Im going to walk out of there with no regrets, Ill know I gave it
everything I got,” he said. Hayden showed no lingering signs of the July 10 back
spasm that left him on a hotel floor, unable to move. Hayden suffered what he
has called the “second worst back spasm of [his] career” at a training camp in
Sardinia, but said he was fully recovered by the time he arrived in London.
Australias James Magnussen, the fastest sprinter of the world this year after
posting a time of 47.10s at the Australian Olympic trials in March, finished
just ahead of Hayden in 48.38. “I think I left a lot of room on the front end
and I can get a little bit of a lead on Magnussen,” Hayden said, “I know hes
going to come out like a Missile like his nickname,” he quipped. Yannick Agnel,
the Frenchman who won his second gold medal in as many nights in Mondays 200m
freestyle, also advanced, in 12th. Later on Tuesday, Canadians Scott Dickens of
Ancaster, Ont., and Audrey Lacroix of Pont-Rouge, Que., advanced to their
respective semi-final races. Lacroix, 28, posted a time of 2:09.25 to advance as
the 15th seed in the womens 200m butterfly, while teammate Katerine Savard
finished 19th and did not advance. Dickens, who finished 16th in the mens 100m
breaststroke over the weekend, posted a time of 2:10.95 in the 200m race.
Dickens was on pace to set a Canadian record for the first half of the race, but
slowed on the back end to post the 13th-fastest time of the morning. Japans
Kosuke Kitajima also advanced with a time of 2:09.43. Kitajima is the two-time
reigning Olympic champion in the event, as well as the Olympic record holder.
The United States and France set up another freestyle final showdown on Tuesday,
joining  Germany, Australia, Great Britain, China, South Africa and Hungary in
mens 4×200m freestyle relay top-eight. France won gold in the 4×100m race on
Sunday, while the United States took silver in that race. In the longer relay
race, the U.S. team of Charlie Houchin, Matthew McLean, Davis Tarwater and Conor
Dwyer finished first in the morning heats with a time of 7:06.75. France, made
up of Jeremy Stravius, Gregory Mallet, Amaury Leveaux and Clement Lefert, was
second in 7:09.18. Americans Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps, as well as Yannick
Agnel, of France, are all likely to find themselves subbed into the
Tuesday-evening final. Canadians Blake Worsley, Colin Russell, Tobias Oriwol and
Alec Page finished 14th—not good enough to qualify. Trindon Holliday Jersey . Sarah Pavan of
Kitchener, Ont., scored a tournament high 32 points with 26 of them on kills,
two on blocks and she added four service aces in Canadas 25-20, 20-25, 25-14,
23-25, 15-11 loss. Connor Barwin Jersey . Ibrahimovic had his
left thigh bandaged as he took part in light warmup exercises in front of about
2,000 fans, and then spent the rest of the one-hour session watching his
teammates do finishing drills. http://www.texansteamstore.com/chris-myers-jersey
. Pronger spoke Saturday night for the first time since Torontos
Mikhail Grabovski hit him just outside his right eye with a stick blade. Pronger
says he feels lucky the injury was not worse because serious eye injuries have
ended careers in the NHL. Brice McCain Jersey . The biggest winner of
Super Bowl week so far may be retired NFLer and former Giant David Tyree, whose
against-the-helmet catch during the Giants game-winning drive at Super Bowl XLII
will be on constant loop this week. Matt Schaub Womens Jersey . The Jays go with
righty Kyle Drabek, while the Royals counter with Luke Hochevar. Drabek, who was
taken 18th overall in 2006, came to Toronto in the December 2009 trade that sent
Roy Halladay to Philadelphia and won four decisions in his initial 21
appearances – 17 starts – in 2010-11. MIAMI —A little numbness wasnt going to
keep Carlos Lee out of the lineup. Lee jammed his neck Friday night sliding
headfirst into second base and colliding with Reds shortstop Wilson Valdez. He
felt some numbness in his fingers so he left the game. He made the most of his
return on Saturday. Lee homered and drove in three runs and the Miami Marlins
beat the Cincinnati Reds 6-4. “When I left here I told the trainer Im not
day-to-day, Ill be ready tomorrow,” said Lee, still sporting a cut on his right
cheek from the col
