LONDON - The IOC is set to formally strip American cyclist Tyler Hamilton of his
gold from the Athens 2004 Olympic Games and reassign the medals after his
admission of doping, according to an Olympic official familiar with the case. Vince Wilfork Womens Jersey . With the
eight-year deadline approaching, the official told The Associated Press the IOC
executive board will meet Friday to readjust the standings from the road race
time trial and award the gold to retired Russian rider Viatcheslav Ekimov. The
official spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision hasnt been
announced yet. After years of denials, Hamilton told CBSs “60 Minutes” last year
that he had repeatedly used performance-enhancing drugs. The IOC asked for
documents from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency before reallocating the medals. The
gold will now go to Ekimov, a former teammate of Hamilton and Lance Armstrong.
American Bobby Julich will be moved up from bronze to silver, and Michael Rogers
of Australia from fourth to bronze. The Russian Olympic Committee has repeatedly
pressed for Ekimov to be upgraded to gold. Ekimov already has two Olympic gold
medals — the track team pursuit at 1988 Seoul 1988 and the road time trial at
Sydney 2000. The Russians failed in a 2006 appeal to the Court of Arbitration
for Sport to have Hamiltons gold given to Ekimov. Ekimov rode with Armstrong on
the U.S. Postal and Discovery Channel teams. He retired from cycling at the end
of the 2006 season but remained in the sport as a director of the Discovery and
RadioShack teams. The case has gained urgency because the IOCs eight-year
statute of limitations runs out at the end of this month. USADA said at the time
of Hamiltons doping admission that he had turned over his gold medal to the
doping agency, but the IOC had not received it and the race result had not been
officially overturned. Before adjusting the results and reallocating the medals,
the IOC wanted to be certain there was nothing in the U.S. investigation that
implicated other riders or their coaches from the Athens cycling competition.
The IOC could have decided to disqualify Hamilton but not readjust the medals.
Hamilton had already come under investigation by the IOC during Athens 2004,
when his initial doping sample indicated he had tested positive for a blood
transfusion. The case was dropped after his backup “B” sample was mistakenly
frozen and couldnt be properly tested. Hamilton tested positive a month later at
the Spanish Vuelta. After serving a two-year suspension, he returned to cycling
but tested positive again for a banned substance in 2009 and was banned for
eight years. Hamilton, who helped Armstrong win the Tour in 1999, 2000 and 01,
accused Armstrong in the CBS interview of doping. Armstrong has denied using
performance-enhancing drugs. USADA officials brought charges of doping against
Armstrong in June, threatening to strip him of his Tour de France victories from
1999-2005. A federal grand jury investigation of the cyclist ended four months
earlier without indictments. Stevan Ridley Youth Jersey . LOUIS —St. Tedy Bruschi Jersey . Numbers Game looks at

. Unfortunately, it came a few hours before the first pitch. Before their sixth
loss in eight games—a 3-1 defeat against Baltimore—the Indians learned
pitcher Roberto Hernandez would be eligible to rejoin the team next month. Tom Brady Womens Jersey . Kevin Bradbury
tweeted the news Friday about Hill, who made a late-season surge for the Lakers.
Los Angeles acquired the 6-foot-10 forward at the trade deadline in March in the
deal that sent Derek Fisher to Houston. Vince Wilfork Jersey . When it did, the
Tigers celebrated perhaps the most spectacular comeback of the 2012 baseball
season. Cabrera hit a two-run homer to cap a stunning five-run rally by Detroit
with two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning, giving the Tigers a 10-8 victory
over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday. NEW YORK —Mark Teixeira and the surging
Yankees have spent two nights in a row reminding the Mets which team gets top
billing in New York. Teixeira hit a go-ahead homer and Phil Hughes won his third
straight decision, sending the Yankees to a 4-2 victory over their crosstown
rivals Saturday. Curtis Granderson also connected and Alex Rodriguez had an
early RBI single for the Yankees (33-25), who go for a Subway Series sweep
Sunday with Andy Pettitte on the mound against Jonathon Niese. They have won
seven of nine and 12 of 16 to move a season-high eight games over .500. “Right
now were on a nice little run,” Teixeira said. “Starting pitching has been the
key.” An injury-depleted bullpen has delivered, too. With runners at the
corners, Rafael Soriano retired pinch-hitter Jordany Valdespin on a routine fly
for the final out. David Wright hit a long homer and Omar Quintanilla went deep
for the first time since 2008, but the scuffling Mets lost for the fifth time in
six games. A pregame message on a clubhouse grease board encouraged them to
“stay positive” and “keep battling.” They got a strong outing from Dillon Gee
but managed only two solo homers against Hughes (6-5), who topped his win total
from an injury-plagued 2011 season. “Its nice to keep it going,” Hughes said. “I
relied on my fastball a lot and I think thats whats been working overall.”
Coming off a four-hitter against the Tigers in which he threw a career-high 123
pitches, Hughes struck out six in 6 1-3 innings to improve to 5-1 in his last
seven starts. “I didnt think he was quite as sharp as he was in Detroit, but I
thought he battled his rear end off,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “Made
some big pitches when he had to. I thought he did a really good job for us.”
Cory Wade and a fine running catch in deep left-centre by Granderson kept the
Mets at bay in the seventh. Granderson added his 18th homer off Bobby Parnell in
the eighth, ending an 0-for-18 slump, and Soriano got three outs for his ninth
save in nine chances. After a 9-1 loss Friday night, the Mets dropped to 2-14 in
series in the Bronx. “They have a lot of power up and down that lineup. We
dont,” Wright said. The matchup between Big Apple foes was just one event on a
jam-packed sports schedule Saturday in the New York area. Also on the docket:
the Belmont Stakes, Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals, a world-class track and
field meet and an exhibition soccer match between South American rivals Brazil
and Argentina. Teixeira put the home team on top at Yankee Stadiium before a
sellout crowd of 48,575. Stevan Ridley Red Jersey. “I think the crowd
gives us energy. Its a big series for New York,” Teixeira said. “When youre
playing at home it just makes it that much more special.” Gee (4-4) worked
around leadoff walks in the third and fourth before another one came back to
bite him in the sixth. He was one strike from escaping again when Teixeira lined
a 2-2 breaking ball over the short porch in right to give the Yankees a 3-2
lead. Teixeiras 11th homer was the first hit for the Yankees since three of
their initial four batters singled. “I would throw that pitch again, just a
little better. I hung it just a little bit,” said Gee, who had trouble staying
loose—and with his footing on the mound. “I didnt feel very good tonight. I
thought my command was all right.” Derek Jeter snapped an 0-for-17 slide with a
leadoff single in the first. He advanced on Gees balk and scored when Rodriguez
grounded a single up the middle. Quintanilla tied it when he connected on a 2-2
pitch in the third for his third major league homer and first since a
game-ending shot for Colorado against Cincinnati on Aug. 24, 2008. Wright drove
his eighth homer to the back of the Mets bullpen in the sixth, far beyond the
399-foot sign on the left-centre fence. “Singles dont win too many games in this
ballpark,” Mets manager Terry Collins said. “We have to have somebody step up
and get some hits.” Hughes has served up 15 home runs—at least one in each of
his 12 starts. The Yankees said that streak is tied for the second-longest to
begin a season in major league history behind Hall of Famer Bert Blyleven, who
gave up a homer in his first 14 starts of 1987 with Minnesota, according to the
Elias Sports Bureau. Raul Ibanez grounded into a double play to end the first,
dropping him to 0 for 9 with the bases loaded this season and the Yankees to 10
for 64 (.156) in those situations. “We are better than what weve shown in those
spots,” Girardi said. “I think its eventually going to change and thats good for
us.” NOTES: Rodriguez tied Hall of Famer Eddie Murray for seventh on the career
list with 1,917 RBIs. ... Jeter reached 1,800 runs scored, passing Ted Williams
for 17th place. ... Yankees starters had pitched at least seven innings in seven
straight games, the teams longest streak since an eight-game run in July 2010.
... Yankees RHP Hiroki Kuroda expects to make his next start after he was hit on
the left foot by Daniel Murphys line drive Friday night, though Girardi said the
team probably will have to wait a couple of days to know for sure. ’ ’ ’
