Bolt rules out retirement U-turn

first_imgSPRINTING icon Usain Bolt said it would be a mistake to change his mind over his decision to retire from the track this year.Usain Bolt has no regrets over his decision to retire later this year but vowed to stay in shape after ending his phenomenal athletics career to avoid losing a bet for growing a ‘belly’.Eight-time Olympic gold medallist Bolt will race for the last time at the World Championships in London in August.The legendary Jamaican sprinter will go down as a sporting great regardless of whether he signs off in style on the track at the venue that hosted the 2012 Olympics.Bolt, 30, said there is no chance that he will change his mind and perform a U-turn.“Everybody wants me to continue but it’s not as simple as it is, you know what I mean? For me, I’ve done what I wanted to do. I’ve done great in the sport,” he told BBC Sport.“People just want to see more and more but you as a person have to decide that this is it. I don’t want to continue and then at the end I start losing, because I hate losing.“No regrets. If you look at a lot of top athletes, that’s the one thing they use to damage their career just a little bit.“By being so dominant through their career, retire, then miss the sport and then come back in to something different. I don’t think my coach would coach me either.“I have a bet with my managers. They give me two years before I get a belly, so I can’t let that happen!” (Sportsmax)last_img read more

Ben Polk carries goal-scoring streak into NCAA tournament

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 16, 2015 at 9:14 pm Contact Chris: [email protected] | @ChrisLibonati Ben Polk’s first touch helped him decide to take his next against Clemson. The ball landed on his chest, and he turned and booted the ball toward the net. As soon as he struck it, he knew it would go in.The ball curved perfectly past Clemson goalie Andrew Tarbell, who hardly lifted his hand to the shot, hit the post and dropped in the net. He ran around as his teammates chased him and “stirred the pot,” circling his wrist.“Three very important goals on the road,” SU head coach Ian McIntyre said. “That allowed us to dig deep and protect the lead.”It was Polk’s first highlight in a No. 13 Syracuse (13-5-3, 3-4-1 Atlantic Coast) ACC tournament run that was full of them. He carried SU with three total goals in the ACC semifinal and final, and subsequently was named the tournament’s most valuable player.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange rode its most potent striking threat to a No. 6 seed in the NCAA tournament and will play the winner of Dartmouth and Hartwick on Sunday. Polk rode hot streaks throughout the season and another one would help the Orange advance through the NCAA tournament.“It seems to be I have a little drought and, when it rains, it pours,” Polk said.The first goal against then-No. 2 Clemson was just the start. He scored another in the matchup with the Tigers after a few SU shots on net squirted out to him and he put away his first shot on a mostly empty net.Tarbell was named All-ACC first team and led the conference in most key goalkeeping stats, including saves (60), shutouts (eight) and goals-against average (0.60). Yet, Polk managed two goals.Against then-No. 9 Notre Dame, Julian Buescher, who is tied with Polk for the team lead in points, hit his teammate with a pass as he streaked through the 18-yard box. Polk slipped the ball past Notre Dame goalie Chris Hubbard.Hubbard is also in the top five in most ACC goalkeeping stats with 53 saves, seven shutouts and 0.79 goals allowed per game.“Sometimes the ball goes in, sometimes it doesn’t. It’s important that he gets his chances,” Buescher said. “… I’m pretty sure he’s not done yet.”In a seven-game stretch through the middle of SU’s season, Polk racked up six goals and two assists, but they came against some of SU’s weakest competition. He scored against Pittsburgh, the worst team in the ACC, Colgate, Albany and Bowling Green.That likely led to being left off the All-ACC teams despite being top 10 in points per game in the ACC.“I don’t know getting snubbed motivates him,” McIntyre said and went on to list a number of players who could have been honored, including Liam Callahan, Juuso Pasanen and Louis Cross.For a player that wasn’t at SU a year ago, he’s become one of SU’s most important now. From time to time he has come up from slide tackles limping late in the season and against Notre Dame on Sunday.To make a deep run, SU will likely need to keep him healthy, so that even if he’s on one leg, he can keep himself on the scoresheet.“Hopefully,” McIntyre said, “he’s got a couple more left in him.” Commentslast_img read more

Dodgers will hand the ball to Clayton Kershaw for Game 4

first_imgST. LOUIS >> After the last game Clayton Kershaw pitched for the Dodgers, he openly wondered if it would be his final game of the season. He had just been handed the worst defeat of his career, allowing eight runs in seven innings in Game 1 of the National League Division Series.Games 4 and 5 were no guarantee after the Dodgers lost the game 10-9, and “who knows if they even want me to pitch at this point,” Kershaw said at the time.Don Mattingly wanted Kershaw to pitch, all right. Even though he never said so publicly, the Dodgers’ manager wanted Kershaw to start Game 4 all along.“I think we pretty much knew at the beginning of the series,” Mattingly said. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Why?“He’s our best guy.”Turns out one game can’t erase a whole season’s worth of confidence, after all.A year ago, Mattingly announced Kershaw would pitch Game 4 of the NLDS on three days’ rest. But that was after the Dodgers beat the Atlanta Braves to take a two-games-to-one advantage in the series.Mattingly made this call before — apparently long before — the Dodgers played the Cardinals in Game 4 on Monday. Shelby Miller, a 23-year-old right-hander, is scheduled to start for St. Louis. center_img The Dodgers’ decision came with a number of immediate implications.Dan Haren, who was scheduled to start Game 4, moves to the bullpen instead. Zack Greinke, who threw seven shutout innings in Game 2, will start Game 5 on Thursday in Los Angeles if there is a Game 5.And the Cardinals are guaranteed a second crack at Kershaw, who was blindsided by their seventh-inning outburst in Game 1.“There’s always something to prove,” Kershaw said when asked about the loss. “This game is very humbling. People don’t care about what you’ve done in the past. It’s ‘what have you done for me lately?’ People turn on you really fast and I know that.”It helped Kershaw’s case that he performed well on three days’ rest a year ago, allowing only three hits and two unearned runs in six innings against the Braves. The Dodgers won that game to advance to the NL Championship Series against the Cardinals.He hasn’t pitched on fewer than four days’ rest since.“Obviously it’s not something we would even think about doing over the course of the season, really,” Mattingly said. “But this is a different time.”Apparently the Cardinals’ recent success against Kershaw didn’t hurt him. When St. Louis rallied from a 6-1 deficit to win Game 1, Kershaw became the first pitcher to allow at least seven runs in consecutive postseason starts. He allowed seven runs in Game 6 of the 2013 NLCS at Busch Stadium, which allowed the Cardinals to eliminate the Dodgers and move on to the World Series.Including the postseason, Kershaw is 2-5 with a 3.97 ERA in nine career starts at Busch Stadium.Haren, who was drafted by St. Louis in 2001 and traded to Oakland before the Cardinals moved into their new ballpark, has only made three starts here. He won one, lost one, and recorded a 3.05 ERA.More than past performance however, the move seems designed to take advantage of the Dodgers’ personnel with their season on the line.In Kershaw and Greinke, the Dodgers have two of baseball’s highest-paid — and best-performing — pitchers in their prime. Kershaw has proven he can perform on short rest at the end of a long season. Greinke has proven he can dominate the Cardinals. Kershaw hasn’t, at least not recently and not for seven innings. That was immaterial on Monday. He has a chance to reverse the narrative today.“Obviously after as bad as I pitched in Game 1 it wasn’t going to be me go in there and say, I want the ball,” Kershaw said. “I was definitely ready for it and definitely wanted to do it, just waiting for the opportunity.”last_img read more
