In a qualifying heat for the womens 5,000 meters in Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday, American Abbey DAgostino and New Zealands Nikki Hamblin received praise for their Olympic spirit. First, when they both fell after getting their legs tangled, DAgostino helped up Hamblin and urged her to continue. Then Hamblin ended up aiding DAgostino, who had a knee injury. Both managed to finish the race.It was the embodiment of the Olympic charter that promotes Olympism and a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play.But not all Olympians have paid attention to the charter.In Rio, bad sportsmanship has reared its ugly head several times. Egyptian Islam El Shehaby refused to shake hands after losing a judo match to an Israeli. American soccer goalkeeper Hope Solo said we lost to a bunch of cowards after the U.S. was eliminated by Sweden. And Irish boxer Michael Conlan went on an obscenity-laced tirade against officials after a loss.You can add that trio to this long and varied list of Olympians who have displayed bad attitudes and poor sportsmanship at the Summer Games.Violence DivisionNicolas Batum, London 2012: With just seconds to go in the France-Spain mens basketball quarterfinal, Frances Batum reached around Spains Juan Carlos Navarro -- who had the ball -- to punch him in his groin. Batum, angry that a Spanish player had just feigned an injury, admitted his guilt. I wanted to give him a good reason to flop, Batum said. Later, Batum tweeted an apology for his stupid act.Angel Matos, Beijing 2008: After being disqualified in a semifinal taekwondo match, the Cuban retaliated. First he pushed a judge, then he kicked the Swedish referee in the face. Matos followed by spitting on the floor and was escorted out. The sports governing body disqualified him and banned him for life. This is an insult to the Olympic vision, an insult to the spirit of taekwondo and, in my opinion, an insult to mankind, said Yang Jin-suk, the secretary general of the World Taekwondo Federation.Melissa Tancredi, London 2012: The Canadian womens soccer player lost her cool in a chippy 4-3 semifinal loss to the United States, appearing to deliberately stomp on the head of American Carli Lloyd late in the game. Tancredi didnt receive a red card for her actions, and FIFA took no action against her.Uruguay mens basketball team, Helsinki 1952: Uruguay won the bronze medal while making enemies of every team it played. In a rough semifinal against France, all but three Uruguay players fouled out by the end of the game, and Uruguayans twice attacked the U.S. referee because of disputes, once kicking him in the groin. That resulted in the ban of two players from the Olympics. Uruguays next match resulted in three injured players on the Soviet team. Uruguay finished with a victory over Argentina that included a game-stopping brawl and so many fouls that the teams had only seven players on the court at games end.Cheater DivisionBoris Onischenko, Montreal 1976: The Soviet army colonel was one of the worlds top modern pentathletes and a former world champion, but he was discovered using an epee in the fencing portion of the competition that was illegal. It had been rigged to register hits on opponents via a button on the handle, even when he missed. He was disqualified and sent home.Fred Lorz, St. Louis 1904: The American, a bricklayer by trade, finished first in the marathon, but he wasnt very sporting about it. After running the first nine miles he started cramping, so he hitched a ride in a car for 11 miles. He got out and walked/ran the final six miles to the finish line, where he was hailed as the victor and posed for photos until he was called out by witnesses. At that point, he claimed it was a joke.Robert Charpentier, Berlin 1936: The record books show the French cyclist won the 100-kilometer road race, coming from behind to nip teammate Guy Lapebie by 0.2 seconds. Lapebie couldnt understand why hed felt himself slow as Charpentier passed him. He discovered the reason much later, when he went to see Leni Riefenstahls Nazi propaganda film Olympia about those Games. The final seconds of the race were shown, and Lapebie saw Charpentier reach out and tug Lapebies shorts as he sped past. Others, however, didnt view the film as conclusive, and the result stood.Drug cheats, multiple Games: Theres Ben Johnson, Marion Jones, Lance Armstrong, the East German swim team, Russian track stars, Tyson Gay and even an Irish swimmer named Michelle Smith, who came out of nowhere to win three gold medals in 1996 at Atlanta. Unfortunately, the list is far too long and growing longer. Bad sportsmanship personified.Cheater Division, Animal ClassificationWaterford Crystal, Athens 2004: The horse of Irish equestrian Cian OConnor in the show jumping competition tested positive for two banned substances -- used by humans as sedatives -- and OConnor had to forfeit his gold medal. In 2005, the international governing body of the sport upheld the decision but supported OConnors claim that the horse had been given the drugs to keep him calm during treatment of a minor injury.Violating the Spirit DivisionWladyslaw Kozakiewicz, Moscow 1980: After hearing whistles and jeers almost every time he jumped, the Polish pole vaulter made an obscene gesture toward the hometown fans after setting a world record and winning the gold. The gesture shocked Soviet officials and many fans but earned Kozakiewicz fame back home, where tensions were high with the Soviet Union. He was voted sportsman of the year in Poland.Italian fencing team, Paris 1924: The team foil event came down to France vs. Italy. When officials allowed a questionable deciding touch to a French fencer, the Italians were furious and verbally assaulted the Hungarian judge, who then complained to a jury of appeal that the Italians had been abusive. The Italian team eventually withdrew, reportedly singing a Fascist party hymn as it left, and forfeited the match and the later individual foil competition.Four womens badminton doubles teams, London 2012: Two pairs from South Korea and one each from China and Indonesia were disqualified from play for losing on purpose to avoid matchups with stronger teams in the quarterfinals. Their non-efforts elicited jeers from the crowd as they served into the net and let shots drop to the court. In his defense, South Korean coach Sung Han-kook told the media, The Chinese started this. They did it first.Philip Hindes, London 2012: When the British cyclist got off to a bad start in the three-man, three-lap team sprint, he admitted to crashing his bike on purpose to get a restart. Rules allow for a restart if there is a crash early in a race. Hindes and his teammates went on to win gold. Hindes, born in Germany to a British father, told reporters after the race, I did it on purpose to get a restart, just to have the fastest ride. ... It was all planned, really. Later, British cycling officials said Hindes comments had been lost in translation because English was his second language. The French coach said it wasnt cheating, but it is not very good for the image of cycling.Team USA, Seoul 1988: At the opening ceremonies, the U.S. team was an undisciplined, free-flowing mass of humanity. Some athletes left the track to wave to family members, a few wore Mickey Mouse ears and several held up signs with messages for television. The South Koreans were offended, and the Americans movements inhibited other delegations marching near them. Said Canadian Dick Pound, an IOC vice president: As one of the leading countries in the Olympic Games, with a special role here in Korea, they should have thought, Lets not act like total klutzes. I dont think thats the image the United States wants to be spreading around the world.Bad Loser DivisionAli Mazaheri, London 2012: The Iranian heavyweight boxer lost his bout with a Cuban but stormed out of the ring without shaking the referees hand or waiting for the victors hand to be raised. Mazaheri threw down his headgear and gloves, and then he left. After being called for numerous holding offenses, Mazaheri called the bout a fix.Pakistans mens field hockey team, Munich 1972: Pakistan reached the gold medal game vs. West Germany but lost 1-0 on a goal with 10 minutes to play. Pakistani players disputed the goal, but it was upheld. Fans, team officials and Pakistani players crowded around the judges table, and someone doused water on the chief of the International Hockey Federation. At the medal ceremony, Pakistans players turned their backs when the winners national anthem was played.Ibragim Samadov, Barcelona 1992: The weightlifter from Russia -- competing for what was called the Unified Team (made up of pieces of the former Soviet Union) -- finished in a three-way tie for first in the light-heavyweight division. But he was awarded third place because he was slightly heavier than his foes (which is considered an advantage). At the awards ceremony, Samadov refused to accept his bronze medal, throwing it to the floor before briskly walking away. When another lifter retrieved it and brought it to him, Samadov threw it down again. He apologized the next day, but he was disqualified and banned for life by the International Weightlifting Federation.Ara Abrahamian, Beijing 2008: The Greco-Roman wrestler from Sweden felt he was cheated out of a gold medal in 2004 because of judging, so he was angry and disgusted after a loss to an Italian that left him with a bronze medal four years later. After shaking hands with other athletes on the podium, he stepped down, walked to the wrestling mat, threw down his bronze medal and then held an impromptu news conference nearby, blasting officials as corrupt. The IOC disqualified him for his behavior.Bad Winner Division, GoldUsain Bolt, Beijing 2008: The Jamaican sprinter blew away the competition in the 100 and 200 meters, but Olympic officials werent happy with his antics. IOC president Jacques Rogge said Bolts behavior was over the top and not the way we perceive being a champion. At the end of the 100 meters, Bolt had pounded his chest and held his arms out wide before the race was over and still set a world record. After setting another record in winning the 200, he mostly ignored all his competitors, danced and walked around the track yelling, I am No. 1! Other athletes didnt see a problem, but Rogge said, He still has to mature.Bad Winner Division, SilverMcKayla Maroney, London 2012: The American gymnast was favored to win the vault, but a mistake earned her a silver medal instead. On the medal stand, she made a face -- looking as if she were sour about having to settle for silver -- that upset many and went viral as a meme. Later, she said her expression was of disappointment in her performance and not disrespectful of the medal. She took ownership and later posed with President Barack Obama in the White House as they both made the not impressed face. Authentic NFL Jerseys China .

"We just dont know what the results from Torino will be," Budgett said. Cheap Jerseys From China .com) - The Pittsburgh Penguins placed forward James Neal on injured reserve Tuesday. ATLANTA -- Evan Gattis blames himself for not getting his catchers mitt lower and keeping Adeiny Hechavarria from scoring on a wild pitch. Had he done so, the Atlanta Braves might still have a long winning streak, but Gattis says the teams goal now is to win the three-game series. "Yeah, man, we had a good run," Gattis said. "I hate that it ended." The Braves 14-game winning streak ended Saturday night with a 1-0 loss to the last-place Miami Marlins, who scored on reliever Jordan Waldens wild pitch in the ninth inning. Miami stopped its own six-game skid. The Braves fell one victory shy of tying the 2000 team for the franchises longest winning streak since the 1891 Boston Beaneaters won 18 straight. Hechavarria led off the Miami ninth with a triple and scored on the wild pitch by Walden (4-2). "Im more disappointed in not blocking it," Gattis said. "I didnt see the replay, but Im pretty sure I just came up on it. I think it went through me. I just came up on it a little bit with my mitt." Marlins starter Nate Eovaldi allowed one hit in seven innings. Mike Dunn (3-3) got the win and Steve Cishek earned his 24th save, striking out Paul Janish with a runner on first to end it. Both teams finished with just three hits. Hechavarrias NL-leading sixth triple bounced against the bottom of the wall in left-centre field and was the games only extra-base hit. He scored standing up -- ending the Marlins 22-inning scoreless string -- when Waldens fourth pitch to the next batter, Ed Lucas, got past Gattis. Cishek posted his 19th straight save. He got Justin Upton to line out and Freddie Freeman to ground out before Gattis singled. Janish took a called third strike. Chad Qualls recorded one out in the Atlanta eighth before Andrelton Simmons reached on an infield hit. Dunn struck out pinch-hitter Brian McCann and retired Jason Heyward on a groundout. Eovaldi allowed a first-inning single by Freeman and retired his final 14 batters. He walked three and struck out eight. "Theyre a great team," Eovaldi said. "I threw the ball really well tonight, It was just a great win all around." Braves rookie starter Alex Wood had retired 12 straight batters before Jeff Mathis singled with two outs in the fifth.ddddddddddddWood gave up two hits, struck out seven and walked one in six innings. Relievers David Carpenter and Luis Avilan combined to allow no baserunners and strike out three over the next two innings. Eovaldi received no run support for his fifth straight start. The Marlins havent scored while Eovaldi has been in a game since his 8-3 victory over Washington on July 12. He has a 1.04 ERA in his last four starts. "Hes always had a good arm to me," Heyward said after going 0 for 3. "Attacks the strike zone, has a lot of movement on his pitches, especially the fastball. Sometimes its a little bit wild and effective as far as which side of the plate." Braves third baseman Chris Johnson, who leads the NL with a .338 batting average, was ejected by plate umpire Jim Joyce to end the first after taking three pitches -- all fastballs -- for strikes with runners on first and second. Johnson yelled at Joyce and threw his bat and helmet before walking to the dugout. After a 54-minute rain delay, Janish replaced Johnson. Johnson was upset with himself for not being in the batters box with two out in the ninth. "Yeah, Im one of those guys that wants to be in the game the whole time and wants to be in that spot," he said. "So, yeah, Im definitely kicking myself a little bit." Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton didnt play. Manager Mike Redmond said he gave his star the night off because "it seems like hes just really grinding and not having a whole lot of fun out there." The Marlins have the NLs worst winning percentage and theyre last in the majors in homers, RBIs and slugging percentage. NOTES: Walden left the game after taking a liner off his pitching hand from Logan Morrison, the third batter he faced. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Walden might need a couple of days to rest his hand, but added that the injury didnt appear serious. ...
