Jared Tallent desperately wanted to be an Olympic champion for more than a couple of months.But if he had to come up just short in his 50km walk title defence, this was a much better sort of second.So often in the past, Tallent has been edged out for top spot at major walking races by athletes he knew were cheats.The outspoken Australian anti-doping campaigner only received the 50km gold medal from the 2012 London Olympics in June this year after Russian Sergey Kirdyapkin was finally stripped of the title for a drug offence.Tallent looked set to get his deserved moment in the sun in Rio on Friday when he hit the front at the 40km mark, only for his legs to go with just two of the 25 laps remaining.One lap later and he was mowed down by reigning world champion Matej Toth, who motored away to claim the gold in three hours 40 minutes and 58 seconds.It was Slovakias first summer Olympics gold medal in any sport other than canoe slalom.A flagging Tallent hung tough to grab the silver in 3:41:16.Hirooki Arai from Japan crossed the line in third spot but was later disqualified, handing the bronze medal to Tallents training partner Evan Dunfee from Canada.I really wanted it and I thought I had it, said Tallent.I probably got a bit too excited.I was feeling really good, I was patient all throughout the race and just when I needed to be a little more patient I went for it at the 40km mark.... I gave it everything.It would have meant so much to have held on and got the gold here.Tallent paid tribute to gold medallist Toth and the other contenders.I didnt have to worry about any cheats in the race who were going to spoil the party for all the clean athletes, he said.It will be great to have a clean podium again and Ill be proud to stand up there with those other blokes.Its very different to London.There are no suspicions this time around.A sore hamstring prompted Tallent to withdraw from the 20km race earlier in the Games.The 32-year-old is the first Australian male track and field athlete to win four Olympic medals.Fellow Australian Chris Erickson set a PB of 3:48:40 to finish ninth and Brendon Reading was 39th on his Olympic debut.World record holder Yohann Diniz set the early pace, only to collapse at the 35km mark.The Frenchman got up to finish seventh, almost six minutes off the pace.

A statement from the worlds top-ranked player says all checks "were satisfactory and showed positive evolution" regarding the injury, which contributed to his loss to Stanislas Wawrinka in the final in Melbourne.

But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. [url=http://www.jordanshoescheapsale.com/]Wholesale Air Jordans China[/url] . The Canadian squad, skipped by Jennifer Jones of Winnipeg, got on the board first with two in the second end, and followed that with two more apiece in the fourth and sixth ends. CHICAGO -- The Milwaukee Brewers dropped both ends of a doubleheader and lost two key players -- slugger Ryan Braun and pitcher Chase Anderson -- with injuries in the nightcap. They were thankful things werent worse.Braun and Anderson both appear to have escaped serious injury. That was about the only thing to go Milwaukees way Tuesday.Jason Hammel threw seven innings of two-hit ball, Anthony Rizzo jumped onto a wall to make a remarkable catch of a foul ball, and the Chicago Cubs beat the banged-up Brewers 4-1 to sweep a day-night doubleheader.Milwaukee was most concerned about Braun, who slid hard into the side wall in left field. He sprained his left knee and ankle, but there doesnt appear to be any structural damage.I think all things considered, it was probably the best-case scenario, Braun said. Well know more tomorrow. Well see how swollen it is tomorrow. If its real swollen, we might end up getting an MRI, but the MCL, ACL and all that stuff is intact, so thats a good thing.Anderson, who took a no-hitter into the eighth inning in his last start against Chicago, left after just two batters when he was hit in the left quadriceps with a liner off the bat of Kris Bryant.Stiff and sore, Anderson said when asked how he felt afterward. Theres really not too much pain. Luckily it got all the muscle, so its just trying to get the swelling to go down.That was the extent of the good news for the Brewers, who managed just one run and nine hits in the two games and have dropped seven of 10.Javier Baez hit a two-run homer while Hammel (13-5) struck out seven to extend his scoreless streak to 22 innings.Rizzo wowed the fans when the first baseman jumped on the wall with both feet, leaned into the crowd and made a one-handed grab of Keon Broxtons popup in the fifth.Rizzo joked that perhaps the play could earn him a spot on the U.S. gymnastics team. Ive been watching them for the last week and a half, two weeks, he said. I got a good dismount. Could have stuck the landing a little bit better, but Im pleased with it.ddddddddddddIn the opener, Trevor Cahill came off the disabled list to throw five innings of two-hit ball in his first start in nearly 16 months in Chicagos 4-0 win.Hernan Perezs two-out solo homer in the ninth off Travis Wood ended Milwaukees 17-inning scoreless streak. After another single, Aroldis Chapman entered and gave up a walk and infield single before striking out Martin Maldonado for his second save of the day and sixth with the Cubs.David Ross walked and scored on Bryants single to left in the third off Jhan Marinez (0-1), who relieved Anderson.Hammel had two hits and the Cubs took control on Baezs two-run shot to left-center in Chicagos three-run sixth off lefty Rob Scahill to secure its 13th win in 15 games.In the opener, Chapman got two outs to complete the three-hitter.Cahill (2-3) also drove in a run with a safety squeeze, and the Cubs added runs on a wild pitch and Addison Russells sacrifice fly off Matt Garza (4-5).With right-hander John Lackeys right shoulder still sore after he left Sundays start, Cahill provides an option if the Cubs need a replacement.He gave us something to talk about, manager Joe Maddon said.Cahill bunted a 3-2 pitch in the fourth, and first baseman Chris Carters flip home wasnt in time to get Chris Coghlan.Garza allowed five hits and threw 103 pitches in five innings. Tyler Cravy, Milwaukees 26th player, threw two scoreless innings.TRAINERS ROOMBrewers: Struggling RHP Michael Blazek went on the 15-day DL with a right forearm strain. He was really just fatigued, manager Craig Counsell said. ... Damien Magnifico was called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs and gave up Coghlans sacrifice fly in the eighth in the opener in his major league debut.Cubs: RHP Pedro Strop (knee surgery) was off crutches. Hes expected to miss at least a month.UP NEXTCubs RHP Jon Lester (12-4, 2.93 ERA) faces RHP Jimmy Nelson (6-12, 4.07) on Wednesday night. ' ' '
