EUGENE, Ore -- Allyson Felix advanced to the final of the womens 400 meters at U.S. Olympic Track and Field trials, finishing her lap in 50.31 seconds, .03 behind Francena McCorory.Felix is nursing an injured right ankle that she said is still bothering her.Its not an ideal situation for me, Felix said. Im happy to keep moving on.Felix is aiming for a double in the 200 and 400 meters, and so far, the ankle injury has done nothing to change those plans. The final is set for Sunday.Nobody had a busier outing on Saturday at the Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon, than Tianna Bartoletta.The world champion in the long jump secured her Olympic berth in that event, which was going on at the same time as her 100-meter qualifying heats. She also advanced to the semifinals in the 100.Bartoletta petitioned for a schedule change, to no avail. So, she changed her entire practice routine to get ready.We changed the practices so I would go from the runway to the sprint, back to the runway, she said. Even though the pressure of being at the Olympic trials was higher, my body was actually used to doing that.On an 83-degree day, Bartoletta took one jump before running in the 100, passed for two rounds, then came back and jumped again.Other qualifiers for long jump were Olympic champion Brittney Reese, whose jump of 23 feet, 11? inches was the longest of 2016, and Janay DeLoach.Justin Gatlin, Tyson Gay, Trayvon Bromell and Mike Rodgers all advanced easily through the first round of 100 meter qualifying.Gatlin won his heat in 10.03 seconds to move one step closer to a possible Olympic showdown with Usain Bolt.?Gatlin lost to Bolt by .01 seconds last year at world championships.Bolt pulled out of Jamaicas national championships with an injured hamstring, but Gatlin said he fully expects the world-record holder to be in Rio next month.Molly Huddle led pretty much the entire way as she breezed to a win in the 10,000 meters.Huddle didnt raise her hands as she crossed the line -- a lesson she learned the hard way at world championships last August in Beijing.She was headed for the bronze when she slowed down and raised her arms at the finish, only to be edged out by American teammate Emily Infeld.The 31-year-old Huddle used a powerful final lap to hold off Infeld. She finished in a time of 31 minutes, 41.62 seconds. Marielle Hall placed third.Clearance Kevin Durant Shoes . -- Lou Brocks shoulder-to-shoulder collision with Bill Freehan during the 1968 World Series and Pete Roses bruising hit on Ray Fosse in the 1970 All-Star game could become relics of baseball history, like the dead-ball era.

They hope to persuade the other team owners and commissioner Roger Goodell to put pressure on Redskins owner Daniel Snyder to drop the nickname they find offensive. "Given the way the meeting transpired," Ray Halbritter, an Oneida representative and leader of the "Change the Mascot Campaign," said Wednesday, "it became somewhat evident they were defending the continued use of the name.RIO DE JANEIRO -- What happened out there?Serena Williams possesses what is arguably the most dominant stoke in the history of womens tennis: a powerful serve that has led her to 22 Grand Slam singles titles and Olympic gold in 2012. But Tuesday night in Rio, just when she needed it most, her serve looked like it belonged to a rank amateur playing a weekly round-robin at the local public courts.Time after time it happened: Her tosses wobbled in the air, and when her racket arm clunked into position it looked like her Wilson racket carried 20 pounds of extra weight. There was one uncertain double fault. Then another. Then, a little while later, another. Five double faults in one game, including one she barely managed to push into the net, leading to a break of serve that led to a three-game run of ungainliness that closed out the match.At the end of this 6-4, 6-3 third-round loss to 21-year-old Elina Svitolina, Williams game had vaporized into the warm Brazilian night. She was trying, but some in the crowd booed as if she wasnt. Others sat stone-faced, eyes wide, shocked at Williams loss of confidence, her 37 unforced errors and the sight of a supreme athlete looking lost on an Olympic stage.Was an injury the cause of it? She dropped out of the Montreal tour stop last month, citing shoulder concerns. But shes not saying, partly because shes not exactly saying much. When the match was done, Williams, the top seed, didnt make herself available to answer questions from the assembled media. Instead, she spoke into a recorder to a United States Tennis Association communications manager, who relayed to the media corps a short string of quotes.Its obviously disappointing but, you know, she played really well, and I think the better player today won, Williams said. It didnt work out the way I wanted to, but at least I was able to make it to Rio.It was awesome. It was fun. But its over now.Uh, yeah. That doesnt exactly give us much. It was Serena being Serena, which is why she is one of the most hot-button champions of our time.Make no mistake, from the start Svitolina dictated the terms of this match. Her forehand was simply dominant. She did not make many unforced errors. Importantly, before Williams meltdown, Svitolina did not back from the fight.The feeling is unreal. I still cant believe this match ended with a win for me, said the Ukrainian, who has risen to No. 20 in the world and is getting coaching help from retired Belgian great Justin Henin.Svitolina spoke of the importance of staying in the moment. How she kept on reminding herself, Dont play Serena Williams, Olympic champion and so many Grand Slams. Just play the ball and go for it.And so we have another stunner. Anotherr top seed down.dddddddddddd The Olympics can be rough ground for the top ranked players. Just ask Roger Federer, who has never won singles gold. Or world No. 1 Novak Djokovic, himself bereft of gold, the loser in a raucous upset Sunday night to Juan Martin del Potro.Part of it is that Olympic tennis is still trying to establish its importance. Motivation among the top players can wane; losing here hurts, but for most its not likely to sting as much as losing in a Grand Slam.This tournament just means more to the lesser-known players like Svitolina. For me, she said, the Olympics is the most special. Win the gold medal here, and she becomes a national hero in her Ukraine, no doubt.Less certain is whats happening with all of pro tennis right now. This match exposed the openings that seem to be spreading through the top of both the mens and womens games in 2016. Serena won Wimbledon but looked uncharacteristically befuddled in the finals of the Australian Open and French Open. Combine those results with Rio -- then consider her age and the upset she suffered in last years US Open semifinals against Italian Roberta Vinci -- and she seems far from a lock for taking Grand Slam No. 23 at next months event in Flushing Meadows.And what of the men? Djokovics upset loss here comes on the heels of being knocked from Wimbledon by journeyman Sam Querrey. With 35-year-old Federer off the tour for the remainder of 2016 because of injury, one has to wonder if theres an opening for someone else to make a sustained run at the top ranking that has been dominated by Djokovic for the past five years.Maybe itll once again be Andy Murray, who looks supremely confident after winning Wimbledon. He had an easy 6-3, 6-1 win Tuesday against Juan Monaco of Argentina. Maybe itll once again be Rafael Nadal, who looked very much his old self, beating Italys Andreas Seppi 6-3, 6-3. (Though two matches are not enough to judge someone who has been struggling through a year-long battle with injury and confidence woes.)Maybe itll be someone else. A few young talents are out there. Milos Raonic? The Wimbledon runner-up is one of them, though it would have been nice if hed bothered to show up in Rio. Nick Kyrgios is another. No doubt he has the talent, but his win last week in Atlanta cant cover up the fact that Tennis Australia declined to bring him to the Olympics because of his unpredictably awful behavior.Openings like this at the top havent come often in the most recent era of pro tennis. Then again, neither have performances as ungainly as those by Rios two No. 1-seeded players. ' ' '
