Of Nigerian and Russian ancestry, Adams was a junior prodigy in the triple jump but took time to blossom in senior athletics before winning World Indoor Championship gold last year at the age of 26. ALEXANDER MENKOV ANNA CHICHEROVA Russia dominates the women’s high jump, with their athletes winning gold at the last three World Championships. Even though she was forced to settle for World Championship bronze in Beijing in August as her teammate, Maria Kuchin, won the title, Chicherova remains Russia’s best-known high jumper. The winner of Olympic gold in 2012 and, the World Championship title the year before, Chicherova’s personal-best jump of 2.07 metres places her joint-third on the all-time list. YELENA ISINBAYEVA SERGEI SHUBENKOV While Russia traditionally is strongest in the field events and endurance races, Shubenkov bucks the trend with his explosive performances in the 110-metre hurdles. At the World Championships in Beijing in August, the 25-year-old Shubenkov brought home his country’s only gold medal in a men’s event. The face of Russian track and field, Isinbayeva is the world record holder in the pole vault. In full training again after a lengthy break to have her daughter, Eva, Isinbayeva is now in danger of missing what would be her fifth Olympics and a chance at a third gold medal. Her coach, Evgeny Trofimov, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that she is in the form of her life and could break her own world record next year. Ahead of the IAAF vote to suspend Russia, she issued a plea to be allowed to compete, saying the Russian team was in a “very sad” state, but that it was not fair to punish athletes who had not been individually found guilty of doping. LYUKMAN ADAMS MOSCOW (AP): Russia was suspended on Friday by track and field’s world governing body, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), four days after a World Anti-Doping Agency report alleged a vast, state-sponsored operation of performance-enhancing drug use. If that suspension is not lifted or overturned at a full disciplinary hearing, Russian athletes face being unable to compete at the Olympics in August and the World Indoor Championships in Portland in March. Here is a look at five leading Russian athletes who would be notably absent. Menkov’s finest hour came in front of his home crowd at the 2013 World Championships in Moscow, when he blew away the competition in the long jump final with three huge efforts that were each further than any of his rivals could match. Now 24, Menkov is still chasing a first major championship medal since that day in Moscow. If he can find that form, he is sure to be a medal contender – his winning jump of 8.56 in 2013 would have been enough for gold at the last two Olympics.

NEWHALL – Ellen Conley has a special bumper sticker on her desk that reads “Proud Employer of an American Soldier.” It was a gift of sorts from Mike Talbot, one of two California Highway Patrol officers Capt. Conley recently welcomed home after their service in the Middle East. “That sticker has been on my desk for a year now, and I couldn’t be prouder,” said Conley, the station commander. Army National Guard Capt. Talbot returned Saturday from deployment in volatile Tikrit, Iraq, where he was a battle captain and Black Hawk helicopter pilot. Jose Ahumada, a member of the Army Reserves, returned two weeks ago from 13 months in Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan and Africa where he kept track of units deployed in the Middle East theater. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “It’s really cool to have them back,” Conley said. “When they first left, it was hard, like losing a member of your family. We kept in touch via e-mail and it was good we were really busy here, because time seemed to fly. I hope it went by fast for them.” Jody Talbot is a little apprehensive about her living arrangements, having been a single mom to Aaron, 11, Brianna, 8, and Ryan, 1, for the last year while Mike was in Iraq. Now that he’s home, she’s going to have to adjust to having some willing help around the house. “I’m very excited, but it’s going to be interesting, commingling our lives again,” she said. Jody gave birth to Ryan two weeks before Talbot was deployed to Iraq. Through the use of video, Web cams and the Internet, she was able to share with her husband, thousands of miles away, Ryan’s first milestones – rolling over, sitting up and taking tentative steps. Mike made a teddy bear before he left, playing his voice saying, “Hi, Ryan, Daddy misses you” to give his son a sense of continuity. “We looked forward to putting together care packages; we sent one about every other week,” Jody said. “The kids would draw pictures and cards and we would go to the store and buy cans of junk food and candy and all the fun stuff. “Mike didn’t like the smell of the detergent used by the military, so he had two sets of sheets. He would send home his dirty sheets and I would wash them, so he’d always have nice sheets from home.” Ahumada came back to work with little fanfare, eager to get back on the streets at home. As a personnel specialist, he spent the last year traveling throughout the Middle East, making sure that deployed units had backup and that troops flowed smoothly through the system. “This was my second deployment in the reserves,” he said. “The other time was in the first Gulf War, which was more defined. This war is unconventional. It’s a lot harder to tell who the enemy is. People that you think are your friends during the day change at night and want to hurt you.” Last September, he left behind his wife, Lidia, and year-old son, David. Like Talbot, Ahumada was able to take advantage of e-mail to keep in touch with home and watch his son grow. Ahumada started out on active duty in the Army 15 years ago, choosing to stay in the active reserves after his initial four-year tour. He recently re-enlisted, referring to his tour as “indefinite.” “I do it for the camaraderie of the people I serve with,” he said. “It’s a sense of duty that’s kind of hard to explain.” Talbot echoed Ahumada’s sentiments, citing a strong sense of commitment. “I am honored to have done this,” he said. “I feel like I did a good job over there. You take so much for granted, but people need to realize that a lot of people have sacrificed to give us what we have in this country. There are a lot of people (Iraqis) who have been fighting us, but a lot more of them have been thanking us and shaking our hands.” Both officers missed their highway duties and are eager to hit the road wearing a different kind of uniform. “I actually missed them,” Talbot said of his fellow officers. “I can’t wait to get back to work. This will sound strange, but it will feel like a vacation after working 12 to 16 hour days.” Carol Rock, (661) 257-5252 email@example.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Nick McGlynn (Stoughton, Wis.) recorded his first career double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds while T.J. Thomas (Stone Mountain, Ga.) added a career-high 11 rebounds with eight points to help the Bulldogs improve to 5-4 in the MVC and 7-14 overall.Missouri State (14-8, 5-4 MVC) got 17 points and 17 rebounds from Alize Johnson.Drake jumped out to a 3-point lead in overtime off a McGlynn basket followed by a jumper from Graham Woodward (Edina, Minn.) before the Bears tied the game at 68-68 with 2:16 left. However, McGlynn answered with another basket followed by a drive from Timmer to give the Bulldogs a three-point lead with 16 seconds left. Strong defense, especially from Woodward and Ore Arogundade (Chicago, Ill.) thwarted the Bears’ last second three-point attempts to preserve the Bulldogs’ win.Drake’s road win was its first road win since Jan. 28, 2015 and its first win in Springfield since 2001. Drake trailed by nine points with 13 minutes left in the second half but clawed away to pull within a point, 52-51, with 7:47 left on a Thomas jumper. The Bulldogs remained within striking distance until a jumper from Timmer tied the contest at 64-64 with 1:43 remaining. Drake’s defense stepped up on the ensuing possessions with Woodward thwarting Dequon Miller’s chance to win the game in regulation. The tandem of Woodward and Arogundade held Miller to 5-of-18 shooting and 1-of-6 from the three-point arc.Missouri State threw the first punch of the back-and-forth contest in the opening half with a 9-0 spurt to break an 11-11 stalemate. That run was part of a larger 14-2 spurt to give the Bears a 25-13 lead with 7:47 left in the opening period. The Bulldog defense immediately put the clamps on the Bears, holding MSU without a field goal for the final 6:52 of the half and forcing 10-straight MSU misses from the field.As the defense was holding court, the offense got into gear and shot 7-of-12 from the field in the final 7:16 of the half to take a 34-33 lead into halftime. That hot shooting keyed an 18-5 run to close the half with Timmer scoring eight points while Woodward added five.The Bulldog return home, where they have won five-straight games, for their next contest Saturday, Jan. 28 against in-state rival, UNI. Tipoff is set for 1 p.m. with the game being televised nationally on CBS Sports Network.Print Friendly Version
