LONDON - If you thought Ryan Lochte might scale it back a bit after he failed to
win more than one individual gold at the London 2012 Olympic Games, think again.
Chris Cook Jersey . “Im probably going to
swim more events in 2016, and Im going to swim as long as Im having fun,” the
American said Sunday, a day after the conclusion of the swimming events at
London 2012. In Lochtes six events, he won two golds — one in the 400-metre
individual medley and one with the 4×200 freestyle relay squad — two silvers in
the 200-metre IM and the 4×100 free relay, and a bronze in the 200-metre
backstroke. He was fourth in the 200-metre freestyle. “Im definitely going to be
training a lot differently and Ill be training for more of the shorter events,
so Ill be cutting down my training a little,” he said. New events might include
the 100-metre backstroke and the 100-metre butterfly — a race in which he
narrowly missed qualifying. Teammate Matthew Grevers won the 100m backstroke,
while Michael Phelps has won the 100m butterfly at three consecutive Olympic
Games.  Expectations for Lochte were high before London 2012, and Phelps, who is
retiring, understands why Lochte is making changes. “Im sure he has goals and Im
sure hes the same way I am — hes a competitor,” Phelps said. “If he doesnt
accomplish those goals, hes going to go back to the drawing board and see what
he needs to do to accomplish them the next time.” So which events will Lochte
add? “Im going to keep everyone guessing for the next four years,” he said.
“Well have to see.” For now, Lochte is sticking with the gruelling 400m IM. But
hell cut back on the painful training load that garnered so much attention ahead
of the Olympics: 10 miles split over five hours in two workouts every day of the
week. “I told my coach, Ill stop swimming that event when someone beats me, and
I havent lost that event in three years,” Lochte said. “So I think Ill keep
training for it but Ill do a different training. Ill work more on my sprint
events.” Lochte will also compete more. For the first time, hes planning to race
in the often-ignored World Cup circuit. The series of short-course meets starts
in October and lasts six weeks with stops in Dubai, Doha, Stockholm, Moscow,
Berlin, Beijing, Tokyo and Singapore. “Im going to try to go to all of them,” he
said at a sponsor event. “Im definitely looking forward to that.” Lochte will be
32 by the time the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games roll around. “Age is just a
number,” he said. “There are some people that the older they get they get
better. Thats what Ive been doing. Ive gotten faster every year, so I plan on
getting even faster.” Jared Allen Womens Jersey . For the Tampa Bay
Rays, they enter a week in which they can make up some serious ground in their
quest for a postseason spot. The Rays begin a six-game road trip on Tuesday
night with the first of three straight games with the Orioles in a pivotal
division matchup. Chuck Foreman Jersey . The leagues latest
move was to counter Vilmas attempt to initiate discovery in his defamation
lawsuit against Roger Goodell, which alleges the commissioner lacked sufficient
evidence when he publicly prejudged the Saints linebacker as the ring-leader of
New Orleans pay-for-injury bounty system. http://www.minnesotavikingsroom.com/everson-griffen-jerseys
. The day after any loss is rarely pleasant for a professional athlete, never
mind when the loss is a one-sided blowout in front of the home crowd. Chris Doleman Jersey . Following Hendersons
UFC 144 win over Edgar in February, UFC President Dana White suggested former
World Extreme Cagefighting champion Anthony Pettis would get his shot at UFC
gold. Harrison Smith Jersey . – Ryan Braun became
the player Los Angeles Dodgers fans love to hate after he beat out Matt Kemp for
the NL MVP award last season.BINGHAMTON, N.Y. —Mark Barberio scored a
power-play goal in overtime to keep his teams record winning streak alive as the
Norfolk Admirals beat the Binghamton Senators 3-2 in American Hockey League
action Saturday. The Admirals (54-18-3) have won 27 games in a row—the
longest streak in AHL or NHL history. They havent lost since Super Bowl Sunday.
It looked like their record streak might come to an end in Binghamton. Mike
Hoffman and Matt Puempel scored second-period goals to give the Senators a 2-1
lead heading into the third period. Alex Killorn bbrought the Admirals back in
it with a power-play goal at 13:21 of the third period. Brandon Fusco Jersey. Defenceman Mike Kostka
assisted on Killorns tying goal and Barberios winner. Norfolks Cory Conacher,
recently named the AHLs player of the year, opened the scoring at 19:24 of the
first period with his 36th goal of the year. Dustin Tokarski made 22 saves for
Norfolk. Mike McKenna stopped 46 shots for Binghamton (29-40-7). The Admirals
will have one more chance to add to their record streak when they visit the
Adirondack Phantoms on Sunday. ’ ’ ’
