IOC sports director Kit McConnell said the Tokyo Games would include 321 events, up from 306 at Rio 2016, with a focus on redressing the Olympic movement's long-standing disparity between male and female athletes. A men's 800 and a 4×100 mixed medley relay - another possible event for Ledecky - was also added. "The team relay has proved to be a very popular event with the athletes and spectators and audiences", said Stanford.
I believe if LeBron still felt his current team was capable of beating the Warriors in this year's Finals, especially at this point, we would have heard it in this latest press conference. This is one of the more interesting defenses of a misguided Tweet. It's just that when the opportunity to give the ball up to generate an open three-pointer arises, James will go with what stats have proven to be the more efficient shot.
And having lifted the European Cup o n c e w i t h Manchester U n i t e d, R o n a l d o has done it t h r e e times in four seas o n s with Madrid .

It shows, win or lose, the Cavs need to go into this summer knowing what needs to be done to more effectively match-up with this Warriors team. When the first half was over, James had 27 points and the Warriors had committed 12 turnovers, and yet Golden State still led 67-61.
PITTSBURGH (AP ) - The night started with a catfish throw. After combining for zero points in Games 3 and 4, Malkin had a goal and an assist and Kessel a goal and two assists. He attempted to extract himself but couldn't, then unleashed a torrent of punches at Subban's head. Ellis was called for holding on the play and with the ensuing power play, Crosby set up Schultz for a blast that snuck through the pads of Pekka Rinne , who got the hook after only 20 minutes.
With the crowd in a frenzy, four-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo - who finished the season with 42 goals in all competitions and as the Champions League's top scorer - ended up singing, "Cristiano, Ballon d'Or" and the fans joined in. It is the first time Madrid have won both La Liga and the Champions League in the same season for 59 years. Real Madrid's players are set to be handed record-breaking bonuses to match their historic season.
So they want 16-0. And James has once again been criticized for not being more aggressive late in Game 3, when he made a pass to Kyle Korver. The short answers, which we will elaborate on are "No, ' 'No" and 'No.' On the last topic, three duos among many who would be ranked ahead of Curry-Durant at this point in National Basketball Association history are Lakers Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Magic Johnson, Chicago Bulls Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen and Lakers Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe ...
Faced with a top order that likes to do the brunt of its early work through the covers, Tharanga - standing in as captain for the injured Angelo Mathews - stationed two men in the region, which meant only 32 runs were scored during the first 10 overs.
They will attack the paint. And James has once again been criticized for not being more aggressive late in Game 3, when he made a pass to Kyle Korver.

Bacsinszky's best result at a major tournament was reaching the semi-finals at Roland Garros in 2015. "If you had been in my shoes on the court, I think you would have understood".

Klay Thompson scored 30 points and Stephen Curry added 26 for the Warriors , who seized a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series and stretched their record playoff win streak to 15-0.

The Penguins boast the top four scorers in this postseason: Malkin, Crosby, Guentzel, and Kessel. "We were really jumping and playing our game, playing fast".

A 113-107 lead with 3:09 left seemed somewhat safe until Durant and the Warriors got it going scoring 11 in a row to take the lead for good. But that means little to Golden State's players, who with a victory in Game 4 on Friday night can exorcise those haunting demons from last June when the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead in the Finals to the Cavaliers.
They also took England to a decider in the hotly contested one-day series in Bangladesh a year ago. "When your team is winning games, when your team is playing better cricket people will notice you, people will respect you". "We know that the game has gone quite a long way and we have had some good results in the recent past, so we will do our best to match that". Kohli said the team were determined to keep their hunger for success.

The 19-year-old, playing in the main draw in Paris for only the second time , is the first teenager to get to the semi-finals at Roland Garros since Ana Ivanovic in 2007. "At the beginning he was more a clay-court player, I would say, because we shared - his former coach is my coach now, so that's the only info I've got".
It's not that they don't throw punches; it's not that they don't have knockout power. According to the Metro Nashville Police Department, it's been 14 years since anyone has been cited for the odd Predator pastime. What doesn't is that Rinne is the weak spot, and this is how Pittsburgh wins.

Cosby also said he had been blackmailed before and was anxious about the nature of phone calls between himself, Andrea Costand and her mother , Gianna Costand.
In game three, they held Sidney Crosby and Yevgeni Malkin shot-less, something that's only happened a few times in their entire career playing together. That path likely requires Rinne to stand tall in the net, even if he doesn't replicate the diving gems from Monday, other guys like Colton Sissons to chip in alongside Gaudreau and continued aggressiveness from the defensemen - the X-factor in putting just enough pressure on typically stout Matt Murray .
Two consecutive victories don't give coach Peter Laviolette belief that his Nashville Predators have momentum against the Pittsburgh Penguins going into Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final . If that was meant to bait the Penguins, it backfired. It's all Penguins after the first period of Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final . As the Penguins were skating down the ice on their way to the fifth goal of Game 5, a very odd play happened.
The third-seeded Wawrinka broke Murray to love in the seventh game and broke again in the final game to win 6-3. The Swiss has not dropped a set since he arrived at Roland Garros and in total has spent three hours less than Murray on court.
The final score was 118-113. The Cavs, though, couldn't get far enough ahead to get comfortable and the Warriors kept chipping away before Durant's defining 3 - the shot that makes dreams come true.

The 26 paint points are the most by a player 6-foot-3 or shorter in the past 20 postseasons.
Stephen Curry shoots during a Warriors practice. And whether or not it's boring to watch one team pummel another in what's supposed to be the pinnacle of competition, or whether it's "good" or "bad" for the NBA to have a squad so good that its main concern during the NBA Finals is whether anyone can find Zaza a goddamned hat , the run has been impressive.

No word on if the Predators will appreciate or object to their marketing manager apparently wishing ill on a player, but that will be seen to come. Phil Kessel scored and added two assists for the Penguins. "No, I'm anxious about his record now at home and it's been outstanding", Fisher said. "We continued to do that". Rinne, the playoff leader in wins and goals-against average, rebounded in a big way for Games 3 and 4 in Nashville , limiting Pittsburgh to a just two goals on 52 ...

It is the second time in three years she has lost in the French Open semifinals. "I think it s a nice gift", said Ostapenko, whose win was greeted by the crowd singing happy birthday.

He won the first set against Nishikori 6-1, led by two sets to one and looked poised to go a break up in the fourth when play was interrupted by a loud noise from the PA system.

Kusal Mendis was named man-of-the-match for his 89 off 93 balls, although the bowlers were deserving of praise after restricting to 321 runs in the one-day worldwide (ODI) meeting.
