#1 afford played brilliantly, going 31 of 39 for von love520 15.06.2019 05:41

EUGENE, Ore. -- Sprinter Tyson Gay has a new coach and a longer beard to go with a new attitude: He doesnt really care what people think about him.Behind that tough exterior, though, masks the pain of having to hand back his only Olympic medal. A doping violation cost him and all his relay teammates the silver medal from the 2012 London Games.A career full of missed chances, close calls, untimely injuries and that stripped-away medal is nearing its end. The man who used to be considered the biggest threat to Usain Bolt is now often viewed as a bit player in the sprint game. Fine with him, the American 100-meter record holder insists. Hes making one last run at the Olympics, doing it for himself, his family, his fans and nobody else.This could restore things for me in my heart, Gay said on the eve of the preliminaries of 100 meters at the Olympic trials. I lost something when I gave that medal back. The people closest to me, they know how bad I want that medal. Anyone on the outside? I dont really care.For the first time in quite a while, the 33-year-old Gay has no aches or pains. Well, maybe a little knee soreness, but thats about it, as he tries to earn an Olympic spot in the 100 and 200. Since becoming the American record holder in 2009, Gays body has betrayed him. Hes gone through groin and hip surgeries over the years to keep him on the track.He fully believes he can keep up with the likes of Justin Gatlin, who is a few months older than him, and Trayvon Bromell, the up-and-comer in the field.Im considered the old one, Gay said. Im going to go out there and give it my best, let it all hang.Hes accepted that his past doping problem will now be part of the permanent record. Gay received a one-year ban in 2013 for testing positive for a steroid precursor DHEA -- a penalty that was reduced because he provided information that led to the U.S. Anti-Doping Agencys case against his former coach, Jon Drummond.The key thing to that is putting the past in the past and showing people you can always persevere, especially when you make mistakes in life, said Gay, who is the second-fastest man in history, thanks to his 9.69-second 100 at a 2009 meet in Shanghai (Bolts world record is 9.58 and Yohan Blake tied Gays mark in 2012). I dont get a lot of hate mail, or any of that type of thing. (Fans) allow me to forget about it for the most part.Bolt called him out, though, intimating Gay shouldve been suspended for life. Although Gatlin has a doping past as well, Bolt has been harsher toward Gay, possibly because he was Bolts biggest rival for so many years.Doesnt bother Gay.USADA did their investigation and understood everything wasnt intentional, Gay said. But (Bolt) is entitled to his own opinion. Im moving forward, man. Just continue to do what I do, not worry about what no one else says.Hes reached out to Drummond, with the two sharing a text over a family matter. Drummond, the former track star and longtime coach, got hit with an eight-year doping ban after arbitrators found a series of discussions concluded with Drummond convincing Gay to take the banned substance, and carrying it to Europe for him.People are in situations and do certain things, said Gay, who has a son who is almost 2 and a teenage daughter. At the end of the day, I cant sit here and hold a grudge and beat myself up. Thats all I would do, if I didnt let go.These days, Gay is working with longtime coach John Smith, who partnered with him about a year and a half ago. The two are smoothing out his starts, which have sometimes stood in Gays way. Theyve recently discovered something, Smith said.On Tuesday, his first start at practice and Im like, `Where did that come from? Smith recounted. He got better and better and better. Hes a gamer. He knows how to go for it. Thats what I love about him.Hes older. Hes injury-free. Hes been scarred up for the last four years, coupled with all the other publicity he had that I dont have to expound on. This is motivational for him, to go out and prove to himself and to the rest of the public ... hes still here.Indeed, Gay still is.Its been a rough three years, Gay said. But I would say Im almost at peace. After I make this team, then Ill be all the way there.

Custom Blue Jays T-shirts . -- The boos poured down on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots at the end of a horrible first half. INDIANAPOLIS -- Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater just wanted a second chance Sunday.Matthew Stafford ensured he got it -- and Prater delivered with a 43-yard field goal that gave the Lions a wild 39-35 victory at Indianapolis.Just four minutes earlier, after Stafford had broken a 28-28 tie with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Theo Riddick, Prater pushed the extra point wide right. So it was 34-28, opening the door for Colts quarterback Andrew Luck to pull off another comeback.Instead, Prater got a shot at redemption and the Lions never doubted him.To see him bounce back is huge, coach Jim Caldwell said. When you miss like that, the second one can be difficult. But he has an unusual focusing ability.Stafford played brilliantly, going 31 of 39 for 340 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions.Somehow, Luck nearly rallied the Colts from an 18-point deficit to another last-minute victory when he threw a 6-yard TD pass to Jack Doyle with 37 seconds to go. It rekindled memories of the winning TD pass he threw at Detroit four years ago.Adam Vinatieris extra point gave Indy a 35-34 lead.But against Indys depleted secondary, Stafford found receivers who turned short catches into big gains. Four plays later, Prater got his chance, and he hit it right.We made a lot of plays, and we just ran out of gas (on defense), Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. We just couldnt make that one more play that we needed to make.Indy was called for a safety on the final play of the game, for throwing an illegal forward pass in its end zone.LUCKS RETURN: In Lucks first meaningful game in more than 10 months, he started slowly and finished strong, as he usually does.Luck wound up 31 of 47 for 385 yards with four touchdowns and had no turnovers -- a stark contrast to his mistake-prone ways during an injury-riddled 2015 season.KEY NUMBERS: Detroit averaged a league-low 83.4 yards rushing per game in 2015 but had 87 at halftime and finished with 116.Frank Gore rushed 14 times for 59 yards, but the Colts extended their streakk of consecutive games without a 100-yard rusher to 51.ddddddddddddSLOW START: Indianapolis spent the offseason looking for ways to start faster. The results didnt match the effort. Indy trailed 14-0 before Luck finally got in sync by finishing the first half with two scoring drives to make it 21-10.OLYMPIC MOMENT: For the second straight day, Olympic gold medalist Lilly King received the loudest ovation of the Indiana contingent that competed at the Rio Olympics. On Saturday, Indiana University honored the Hoosiers who competed between the first and second quarters. On Sunday, the reaction was the same at halftime of Lions-Colts.INJURY REPORT: Detroit running back Theo Riddick left for a while to undergo the concussion protocol, but returned late in the game after being cleared.Indy had three defenders go down on one series late in the first half: safety T.J. Green (sprained knee), cornerback Patrick Robinson (concussion), and linebacker Sio Moore. Cornerback Antonio Cromartie also left briefly in the first half, holding his left wrist. Moore and Cromartie returned. Green and Robinson did not, and Green is scheduled to undergo more evaluation Monday. Safety Winston Guy (ankle) also left late in the game and did not return.THEY SAID IT: Stafford on his confidence in Prater: No sweat. I knew he would be good from 65.Luck on another slow start: Im tired of being a part of slow starts. ... Weve got to start faster.FANTASY IMPACT: Riddick had a big day for Detroit and even better one for fantasy football owners. He rushed seven times for 45 yards and one touchdown while catching five passes for 63 yards and another TD.Owners in need of tight ends in Week 2 may want to gamble on the Colts tight ends. Dwayne Allen caught four passes for 53 yards and one TD, while two of Doyles three catches went for TDs.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
