#1 what worked in the second half. von riluowanying123 17.04.2019 12:34

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Abby Johnston set her alarm for 5:45 a.m. Friday, intent on getting in an early morning warm-up before the first individual diving event of the Rio Olympics.When she arrived at the pool, it was closed.I was a little frustrated, to say the least, the American diver said. A little cranky, because it was early too.In another embarrassment for the Maria Lenk Aquatics Center, a planned practice session had to be called off to give officials more time to clean the green-tinged water -- a four-days-and-counting scenario that prompted Johnson to dub it the Swamp.Its always changing, she said.At least the pool appears to be heading in the right direction. After reopening in the early afternoon, the pool was a lighter shade of green and appeared to be much closer to its normal color.Its not as green, Johnston said. But its a little murkier. Underwater, I just try to keep my eyes closed.The water suddenly changed color Tuesday, midway through the synchronized diving events. Officials insisted the water was safe for competing, even after a larger, adjacent pool used for water polo and synchronized swimming also turned green.Mario Andrada, chief spokesman for the local organizing committee, stressed that the pool was safe for competition, clearing the way for the preliminaries of womens 3-meter springboard.He conceded that some athletes had been bothered by the water, but said that was a result of efforts to clean the pool.We reiterate what we have been saying all along -- the water does not offer any threat to the health of the athletes, he said. In the first day of this water situation, one or two athletes complained about their eyes being itchy. This was a result that the first reaction when we saw the water turning green was to use one of the chemicals -- chlorine -- that is very common in swimming pools. We reduced immediately the quantity. We retested the water and it was totally within the parameters.Andrada said officials were caught off guard by the pools deteriorating condition.Chemistry is not an exact science, he said. Some things, as you can see, went longer than expected.Rain the past couple of days made it even tougher to get the water color back to normal.The rain doesnt help, Andrada said. He added that athletes had access to dry-land training in the morning, but conceded that was not ideal.He explained that the changing color of the pool was the result of increased alkaline levels, much like aquarium water can turn green when not monitored properly.When we went to fix the green, there was a discussion about the best chemicals. We cant use too much chemicals in the water because athletes are training in it, Andrada said. We certainly could have done better in the beginning to prevent the water from turning green. Once it turned green, we again made another bit of a mistake.The second American diver, Kassidy Cook, said the water wasnt a problem during the competition.Its just a different color. It doesnt really change anything, she said. I actually kind of like it because it makes spotting easier. When the skys blue and the waters blue, you can get them confused.Johnston, who still managed to qualify for Saturdays semifinals with the sixth-highest score, wasnt concerned about competing in green water.Well, except for one little matter.Im worried about my hair, she said, smiling as she brushed back her locks. If my hair turns green, I will send my hair-dye bill to the Olympics. Air Jordan 3 Wholesale .

Open champion Justin Rose birdied the first hole with a blind shot he hit to a foot of the pin, and he stayed in front Tuesday until he completed a 4-under 67 for a two-shot lead over Jason Dufner in PGA Grand Slam of Golf. MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Mark Walton saved Miami against Florida Atlantic last year.He was even better in the rematch.Walton rushed for career highs of 155 yards and four touchdowns, and No. 25 Miami shook off a slow start to beat Florida Atlantic 38-10 on Saturday night.He ran for three touchdowns against FAU a year ago, and this time became the sixth Miami back in program history to rush for four in a game.Im not a stats guy, Walton said. Its great for me. Great for me to be the sixth or whatever. Im not big on stats. I just go out there and play and my ability showed tonight.Walton scored on runs of 7, 3, 16 and 30 yards. He was suspended for much of the offseason after a drunken-driving arrest, a charge that was dropped, and said hes had a chip on his shoulder since returning.He just plays with a lot of passion and heart, said Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya, who completed 17 of 31 passes for 191 yards for the Hurricanes and was picked off twice. He shows up every day and gets after it.Miami (2-0) set a school record with 108 points in the seasons first two games, breaking the previous mark of 104 set in 1998 and matched in 2002.I just want to score enough to win, truthfully, said Miami coach Mark Richt, who is the 10th coach to win his first two games on the Hurricane sideline. I like when theres not a whole lot of drama.Greg Howell rushed for 75 yards and a touchdown for FAU (1-1). Jason Driskel completed 18 of 36 passes for 167 yards for the Owls, who punted on their first seven possessions. Kalib Woods caught nine balls for 121 yards.We came here to win. We didnt accomplish the mission we came here to accomplish, FAU coach Charlie Partridge said. The good news is these are all very fixable things for a very young football team -- a very young, talented football team.Joe Yearby ran for 121 yards and a score for the Hurricanes. Miami ooutgained FAU 470-214, and forced nine punts for the second consecutive game.ddddddddddddI thought our defense played spectacular, Richt said. Very obvious how great they played. They would not let it get interesting at all.THE TAKEAWAYFlorida Atlantic: The Owls had chances early, getting into Miami territory five times in the first half but only coming away with three points. Driskel was poised against Miamis rush, but his offensive line failed him -- and Howell, who managed only 16 yards on nine first-half carries. The FAU defensive front caused Miamis experienced offensive line plenty of problems, a good sign for the Owls.Miami: The Hurricanes regressed in the first half, plagued again by the mistakes that doomed them in past seasons. There were drops, a missed field goal for the second straight week and silly penalties -- roughing the punter most egregious among them. Kaaya threw multiple interceptions for the first time since Game 6 of his freshman season, though he got clobbered on one. But Miami found what worked in the second half.POLL IMPLICATIONSMiami might not be a lock to stay in the AP Top 25. Floridas big win over Kentucky could get the Gators back in the ranking, though No. 22 Oklahoma States loss -- the Cowboys fell to Central Michigan on the last play of the game, though officials later said the winning score should not have counted -- may be enough to keep the Hurricanes ranked.UP NEXTFAU: The Owls visit Kansas State next Saturday. Its the only time FAU leaves Florida in the first six weeks of this season.Miami: A dangerous game awaits at Appalachian State next Saturday. The Mountaineers are 18-3 in their last 21 games, and the biggest crowd in the history of Kidd Brewer Stadium is expected. ' ' '
