RIO DE JANEIRO -- Just seconds into her first heat in canoe slalom, Maialen Chourraut thought her Olympics were over.She missed a gate entirely in the womens kayak on the fast but unforgiving course at Whitewater Stadium.Nervous in the second heat, she was penalized twice for touching gates but sliced and curled through the waves and eddies so fast that she scraped into the semifinals, 11th out of 15. Surviving, she said, made her feel stronger.That was Monday.On Thursday, all she touched were river rapids and the heart of her husband and national coach, Xabier Etxaniz, who jumped into the water in the finish area to give her a congratulatory kiss for winning the gold medal. Her daughter Ane was on the bank, pointing out who was No. 1.This was a very special project for my family, Chourraut said, and we achieved what we wanted.Without incurring any more penalties, Chourraut qualified third for the final, then surprised even herself when she finished three seconds faster than Luuka Jones of New Zealand who, in turn, slashed more than five seconds off the leading run.Chourraut knew she was guaranteed a bronze because there were only two more paddlers to complete the final, including former world champion Corinna Kuhnle of Austria, but both touched two gates each. Chourraut screamed again and covered her face in the finish area as the first Spaniard in canoe slalom to win an Olympic gold medal, adding it to her bronze from the London Games.Jones, last in her only previous major final at the 2014 worlds, was the first New Zealander to medal in the discipline, on her third attempt.Jess Fox, the top-ranked woman and big favorite from Australia, settled for bronze. She finished faster than Jones, but was hit with a late two-second penalty, and fell half a second behind.After she was an unexpected second in London, Australians dubbed her the Silver Fox, and her ongoing success fueled high expectations of an upgraded change in nickname. Fox was coming off a World Cup win in Italy in May and a kayak-canoe double at the junior worlds in Poland less than a month ago.For second-ranked Chourraut, the win was a reward for years of just missing the top step on the podium at the biggest races. Besides her 2012 Olympic bronze, she was second at the worlds in 2009, and third in 2011. Since the London Games, shes won three World Cups, the 2015 European championship, and had a daughter. She kept paddling until the eighth month of her pregnancy, so it would be easier to regain her form.This (gold medal) is what Ive been looking for since a long time ago, she said. For my family it is a reward for all the nerves and emotion they have felt.Meanwhile, the Skantar cousins from Slovakia, Ladislav and Peter, likely won the last gold medal in double canoe, as its expected to be phased out after the Rio Olympics and replaced by womens single canoe for gender balance.The cousins triumph brought them out from the considerable shadow of their compatriots, the great Hochschorner twins, Pavel and Peter, who won the 2000, 2004 and 2008 gold medals, plus the bronze in London. The twins lost Slovakias quota spot to the Skantars at the European championships in May, and the Skantars felt a lot of pressure to follow in their footsteps.We, Peter Skantar said, are very happy because we have kind of substituted the brothers, and thats why the gold was very high to reach for us.Britains Richard Hounslow and David Florence repeated their silver-medal effort from London, and Frances Gauthier Klauss and Matthieu Peche redeemed their fourth-place finish in London with the bronze.

Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human.

Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night.

Rob Nelson of ESPN Stats & Information revisits the worst bad beats from the weekends gambling action.?Closing lines are courtesy of Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, and pick percentages are via Wunderdog Sports.SaturdayCentral Michigan Chippewas at Northern Illinois HuskiesClosing over/under:?61Its always a tough break for bettors on the under when a college football game goes to overtime, but it doesnt get much worse than when it takes three extra periods to finally go over.With the game tied at 21 late in the fourth quarter, the 58 percent of bettors on the under were hoping for a late score in regulation to end it.That opportunity came after Central Michigan drove deep into Northern Illinois territory. Chippewas kicker Brian Eavey had a 33-yard field goal in the final seconds to win it, but missed. After a Central Michigan interception in overtime, Eavey would get a chance to redeem himself. But once again, the Chippewas kicker missed, this time from 35 yards out.Heading to double-overtime, the score was tied at 21 and the under still appeared to be in good shape. But the teams traded touchdowns, and it was now 28-28 heading to triple-overtime. Central Michigans DAndre Dill blocked a field goal to set his team up for the win again, as those on the under were begging for a field goal and 31-28 final score. Unfortunately for those folks, Cooper Rush and Tyler Conklin hooked up for a 25-yard touchdown to win it 34-28, with the total going over by one point.Final score:?Central Michigan 34, Northern Illinois 28 in 3OT (Game goes over)Missouri Tigers at Florida GatorsClosing over/under:?52.5This turned out to be a similar ending to the previous weekends SEC East game between Georgia and South Carolina.Florida led 33-7 with less than two minutes left, as only a pair of late touchdowns could lose it for the 73 percent on the under -- the most popular under pick Saturday. Ish Witters 1-yard touchdown capped off a 99-yard drive for Missouri, as Florida then led 33-14 with 1:23 left. Down 19, Missouris onside kick attempt was picked up and returned for a touchdown by Floridas Antonio Callaway, pushing the total over.Final score:?Florida 40, Missouri 14 (Game goes over)Connecticut Huskies at South Florida BullsClosing line:?South Florida -20.5The 57 percent who took South Florida will have a tough time getting over all of the mistakes the Bulls made in the second half.South Florida led 14-3 at halftime, but started the third quarter with turnovers on each of its first two drives. Later in the quarter, Bulls running back Marlon Mack lost a fumble at the Connecticut 2-yard line. Despite all that, South Florida continued to move the ball with ease and took a 42-20 lead with 2:57 left, finally covering the 20.5-point spread. The Bulls jusst needed one stop, and they appeared to get it when Jalen Spencer picked off Bryant Shirreffs.ddddddddddddBut in what turned out to be the most costly mistake for South Florida, defensive pass interference was called, extending the Huskies drive. Five plays later, Shirreffs threw a touchdown to Alec Bloom on fourth down with 57 seconds on the clock, and Connecticut would lose by just 15.Final score:?South Florida 42, Connecticut 27 (Connecticut covers)SundayCleveland Browns at Tennessee TitansClosing line:?Titans -7.5The majority of the action was on the Titans, who were favored for the first time this season, to cover the 7.5-point spread against the winless Browns.Tennessee led from start to finish, and seemingly took control when Anthony Fasanos 15-yard touchdown catch from Marcus Mariota put the home favorites up 15 with 6:43 left. The Browns proceeded to go on a 13-play scoring drive that included two fourth-down conversions, cutting the Titans lead to 28-19.In an interesting decision, Hue Jackson went for two (to cut the deficit to seven), but failed. Those who bet the Titans rejoiced. But that happy feeling didnt last long, as Cleveland recovered its own onside kick, getting the ball back with 2:05 left. Nine plays later, Duke Johnson Jr. scored a 1-yard touchdown with 27 seconds left to cover the spread for the Browns. Tennessee dropped to 1-8 ATS in its past nine games as the favorite.Final score:?Titans 28, Browns 26 (Browns cover)Indianapolis Colts at Houston TexansClosing line:?Texans -3 Over/under: 48For most of the night, it appeared that the Colts (who closed as 3-point underdogs) and the under 48 would be the winning sides. Indianapolis led 23-9 with less than three minutes left in regulation, prompting many Texan fans to leave the game early.They ended up missing an improbable comeback by the home team.A Lamar Miller 10-yard touchdown reception and Nick Novak extra-point cut the Colts lead to 23-16 with 2:37 left. Houston forced a three-and-out and got the ball right back. Three plays later, Brock Osweiler connected with C.J. Fiedorowicz for a 26-yard touchdown -- and just like that, it was tied at 23. Someone would need to score again (unless it ended in a tie), so in matter of minutes, bettors on the under went from winners to losers.As for the rest of the game, the Colts failed to score on both the final possession in regulation and the first in overtime before Houston ended it. The Texans scored on their first overtime possession, as Novaks 33-yard field goal forced those on Indy +3 to settle for a push.Final score:?Texans 26, Colts 23 in OT (Game pushes and total goes over) Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Jerseys White ' ' '
