RIO DE JANEIRO -- British cyclist Jason Kenny insists there was nothing awkward about the 24 hours leading to the individual sprint finals.Even though he was sharing a room with his opponent, Callum Skinner.Just did the same thing we always do, Kenny said. We went to dinner, went to bed, woke up and had breakfast and came here.Kenny also insists there will be nothing awkward about heading back to their room together, even after he soundly beat Skinner on Sunday to win his second gold medal of the Rio Games.What we do on the track, he said, has no bearing with what happens at home.Besides, people should be accustomed to playing second fiddle to Kenny by now.Not only did he defend the individual sprint title he won at the London Games, he also won his fifth Olympic gold medal. And when you combine the silver he won in the event at the Beijing Games, he now has six medals overall heading into Tuesday nights keirin competition.I dont know how they do it, said Russias Denis Dmitriev, who at least managed to beat Kenny once in the semifinals of the best-of-three sprint event. But, yeah, theyre best at the moment.Dmitriev swept pass Matt Glaetzer of Australia to earn the bronze medal.In other events Sunday, former world road champion Mark Cavendish of Britain got started in the opening events of the six-discipline omnium, the decathlon of the track cycling program.The winner of 30 stages in the Tour de France, Cavendish was the lone member of the British track cycling team to leave the 2008 Beijing Games without a medal. He also failed to medal at the 2012 London Games, when he was among the favorites in the road race.Cavendish sits third in the two-day competition and must overcome Thomas Boudat of France and Elia Viviani of Italy. He will also have to hold off reigning Olympic champ Lasse Norman Hansen of Denmark, who won the scratch race and individual pursuit before taking last in the elimination race.Im in good position, Hansen said. (The scratch race) is a mental boost for me. I feel quite confident especially after that race. Normally the scratch is one of my weakest races.With its sizable funding from lottery proceeds, the British team has come to dominate track cycling at the Olympics, winning seven golds each of the past two Summer Games. And in events where nations are allowed more than one rider, they often claim silver and bronze, too.Their success four years ago led one French official to suggest they had magic wheels.The British insist the only magic is in their training. They plan every four years for the Olympics, even at the expense of major events such as the world championships. Everything is geared toward being razor-sharp for the Summer Games.Kenny is perhaps the best at it.Many critics thought the man from Bolton had lost some of the leg speed that carried him to two gold medals at the London Games. But he quickly silenced them by teaming with Skinner and Philip Hindes to win the team sprint gold on the opening night of the track program in Rio.I tried to convince myself that I probably feel better because I have more training than Callums got, but in reality I hurt quite a bit this morning, Kenny said. I knew it would be a fight and it was -- it was just a matter of coming here and focusing on the process, really.Kenny has been leading another remarkable medal rush for Britain that included world-record performances by the mens and womens pursuit teams and a silver medal for Becky James in the keirin.More could be on the way, too.Along with Cavendish in the omnium and Kenny in the keirin, Becky James and Katy Marchant are alive in the womens individual sprint. Both breezed through their opening round Sunday.To be honest, to do what we did in Beijing and again in London and to be pushing for it again, its really special, Kenny said. Its the whole setup, it gives us the opportunity, and Im really lucky to be part of this era to go through this amazing set of Games weve had. China Nike NFL Jerseys .

The details of her itinerary have not been set. The selection of Hermann to run the universitys sports department has been under fire since it was revealed a little more than a week ago that players on the University of Tennessee volleyball team she coached in 1997 complained she had been verbally and emotionally abusive. They said in a letter at the time that she called them "whores, alcoholics and learning disabled." The allegations come in the aftermath of the uproar that left Rutgers searching for a new athletic director. Predecessor Tim Pernetti was forced to resign in early April, days after mens basketball coach Mike Rice was fired for physically and verbally abusing his players during his three-year tenure. Hermann, who is scheduled to start at Rutgers on June 17, has denied the allegations. She said that she had not heard of the letter until last week. University President Robert Barchi has said Hermann remains his choice to lead Rutgers into the Big Ten Conference in 2014. While state politicians have called for Hermann to step aside, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has said he will not micromanage Rutgers, adding he has complete confidence in Barchi. Opponents of Herrmann said she was not vetted properly.ddddddddddddSome members of the selection committee said they had little or no say in the choice until they were informed that Hermann and Sean Frazier, the deputy athletic director at Wisconsin, were the finalists. Hermann had spent the previous 16 years as the No. 2 athletic administrator at Louisville. The universitys board of governors has the right to replace Hermann, but the school would probably owe her $2.25 million based on her five-year, $450,000 contract. Hermann was chosen May 15 as the Scarlet Knights first female athletic director. Rutgers problems started in December when Rice was suspended three games and fined $75,000 by the school after a video of his conduct at practices was given to Pernetti by Eric Murdock, a former assistant coach. The video showed numerous clips of Rice firing basketballs at players, hitting them in the back, legs, feet and shoulders. It also showed him grabbing players by their jerseys and yanking them around the court. Rice can be heard yelling obscenities and using anti-gay slurs. The controversy went public in April when ESPN aired the videos and Barchi admitted he didnt view them in the fall. Rice was fired and Pernetti, assistant coach Jimmy Martelli and interim senior vice-president and university counsel John Wolf resigned. ' ' '
