RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) -- Floyd Mayweather Jr. David Rundblad Blackhawks Jersey . dropped in to see the next generation of Olympic boxers in Rio.The U.S. bronze medalist at the 1996 Atlanta Games stood on a platform at Riocentro Pavilion 6 to watch Saturday evenings fights, starting with the welterweight quarterfinals. He stuck around through a major heavyweight semifinal and a first-round knockout by Britain super heavyweight Joe Joyce.It was good to show him what I can do, Joyce said.Mayweather was besieged by a stream of autograph-seekers and photo-takers, even with most of the U.S. mens basketball team, including Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony and DeMarcus Cousins, sitting a few rows behind him.Mayweather is a boxing promoter of sorts after his retirement, and he could have been scouting talent for his company. Saturdays card included several pro prospects from around the world, but no Americans.The 39-year-old Mayweather retired last year after a 49-0 career. The International Boxing Association (AIBA) changed its rules this year to allow professionals to fight at the Olympics, but Mayweather had no interest.Mayweathers undefeated professional mark has been the topic of much fanfare as he became the most famous boxer in the world. But his Olympics 20 years ago marked the last time he lost a fight, when he dropped a much-disputed decision before winning bronze. ED Belfour Jersey . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety.Sheldon Brookbank Blackhawks Jersey . With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday. It was a victory that ended a decade of frustration for Parker and a talented French generation, which lost the final against Spain two years ago and took bronze in 2005. http:///...ikita-womens-jersey/ . - After leading the Saints to a fourth playoff appearance in five seasons, Drew Brees expressed confidence in the direction of his team and, perhaps more importantly, showed a willingness to listen to contract proposals if the team needs his help getting under the NFLs salary cap. Australias coach Darren Lehmann will mentor the national team until the 2019 Ashes series in England before making his exit, with succession planning to be a key part of his role over the next three years.Lehmanns contract has been extended until October 2019 by Cricket Australia, having previously been elongated until next year. Since his appointment on the eve of the 2013 Ashes series, Lehmann has guided Australia to home Test victories over England, India, New Zealand and West Indies, away defeats of South Africa and New Zealand, plus lifting the 2015 World Cup, also at home.However, a heavy away loss in the UAE to Pakistan, the surrender of the Ashes in England last year and a surprising defeat to an unfancied Sri Lanka in Pallekele last week make it patently clear that Lehmann still has plenty of work ahead of him to advance Australias claim to the title of the worlds undisputed best team. In addition to the multiple retirements that followed last years Ashes, Lehmanns support staff have changed considerably in the past six months, offering him fresh faces with which to work towards those goals.The board have actually seen that we are doing okay as such, barring the result in the Test [at Pallekele], but looking forward to the next few years in charge and hopefully getting some wins in the sub-continent, first and foremost on the agenda, but developing the side as we are, Lehmann said. We have a different coaching group now coming in and the players are refreshed and I am looking forward to the challenge.I suppose the big one on everyones lips is the sub-continent - we certainly have to improve there. Ashes is a big home and away and, obviously, the World Cup. They are the big ones for us, as everyone knows, but you have got to try and win every games you play. For us, we just have to get better playing in all conditions.Probably the spinning ball on the sub-continent [is our biggest challenge] you would think. Swinging ball - a lot has been made of the England swinging ball and we won a couple of Test matches this time, albeit we lost the Ashes and the wickets they produced were very seam friendly. End of the day, that is the way cricket goes. For us, it is probably more the sub-continent conditions at the moment, getting prepared for that obviously with the next two Test matches here and then India at the back end.With typical frankness, Lehmann replied I would think it would be, yeah when asked whether the extended tenure would mark the completion of his time as coach. Between now and then, Australia face a tour of India, a Champions Trophy, another home and away Ashes contest and a World Cup in England. Brian Campbell Blackhawks Jersey. The newly-appointed assistant coach David Saker, recent interim coach Justin Langer and Yorkshire coach Jason Gillespie will be among the candidates to eventually replace Lehmann.Well give those guys opportunities along the way. As Ive always said, its the best job in the world. I love the job. But its a job you cant do forever either, Lehmann said. So whatever opportunities we can give to the guys along the way we certainly will do. And then its up to the board what they do from there and the high performance department.I think youre judged on results most of the time all around the world not just on the subcontinent. I think youve got to play well and win a lot of games of cricket basically as a coach. Thats what players have to do, thats what coaches have to do in any sport. Youve got to hopefully keep getting the results that makes it a lot easier.The rapid improvement of the national teams results under Lehmann when first appointed three years ago arguably saved the jobs of more senior CA figures including the team performance manager Pat Howard and the chief executive James Sutherland. They have not yet forgotten this fact, allowing Lehmann the rare privilege of extending his role and also planning well in advance for life afterwards.This is a world away from the attitude the board once held, that Lehmann was too much of a maverick to be entrusted with a coaching job. Howard emphasised Lehmanns standing as a popular figure in Australian cricket and an influencer of the global game, in explaining the decision.We wanted certainty and stability for the playing group with both the coach and assistant coach contracted as we build towards the Ashes series and the 2019 World Cup, Howard said. Darren has had great success in the role and he and the National Selection Panel deserve a huge amount of credit for taking a relatively young side to number one in the world in two of the three formats.What often goes unseen is how big of a supporter Darren has been of the wider cricket system in Australia and that is crucial to the long term sustainability of Australian cricket. The commitment he shows to the role goes far broader that of the Australian mens team and extends into the global support of the game through his work on the ICC Cricket Committee. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
