    RIO DE JANEIRO -- Ashton Eaton retained his title as the best all-around athlete in the world by tying the decathlon Olympic record and, within minutes, had stepped back for track and fields ultimate superstar to take center stage again. Nike Air Presto Australia .What more could the now two-time Olympic champion Eaton do Thursday night to get just a little sliver of the limelight that beams down so brightly on Usain Bolt?Not much.I had the pleasure of being in the same era as Usain Bolt, Eaton said. I mean, the guys last name is Bolt, hes the fastest man ever, you cant write a story like that.You can try.For his own tale, Eaton made it back-to-back Olympic and world titles in the decathlon, an event the American has ruled since he rebounded from silver at the worlds in 2011 to claim the next four major gold medals available. From throwing, to jumping, to running, Eaton can do it all.But then Bolt -- a Jamaican who just deals in speed -- roared around the bend at the Olympic Stadium to win the 200 meters in 19.78 seconds, completing act two of his three-part quest for gold and history in Rio.Maybe there was some comfort for Eaton -- and loads of other athletes looking to be the one to shine -- with Bolts suggestion afterward that hes nearly done.On the straight, my body didnt respond. Im getting old, said Bolt, who was trying to break his own world record of 19.19.Fridays 4x100-meter relay final is all thats left now between Bolt and an historic three golds at three straight Olympics. Concentrating on not messing that up for Bolt, a Jamaica team led by Asafa Powell got into the final in a pretty important moment for the big mans legacy. They only finished second in their heat behind Japan, but Jamaicas in.There was some pressure to make it to the finals, Powell said, relieved he didnt have to deliver any bad news as Bolt prepared for the 200 final.Wednesday produced an awesome hour for the U.S. track team, according to Tianna Bartoletta. By Thursday night, that had evolved into a pretty great 24 hours.Alongside Eatons triumph, Ryan Crouser led an American one-two in the shot put, also setting a new Olympic record of 22.52 meters to win his first major title from world champion Joe Kovacs.Dalilah Muhammad kept the U.S. total ticking on with gold in the womens 400-meter hurdles and Ashley Spencer added a bronze, with another American 1-2 only just thwarted by Denmarks Sara Slott Petersen. Kerron Clement later won his first individual Olympic gold in the 400-meter hurdles.We are making history out here, Muhammad said of the U.S. teams gold rush.The crowd at a near-full Olympic Stadium was constantly reminded of that with a series of medal ceremonies through the day, most of them starting with: Oh, say can you see...With three days remaining, the United States was up to 24 medals in track and field, eight of them gold. The U.S. won 29 medals, including nine golds, in London.For a few short moments, the U.S. womens 4x100 relay team was a little like Bolt: They were the only ones everyone was looking at.Leading off, Bartoletta nestled into the starting blocks in lane 2 for the teams re-run -- all on their own and against the clock only -- after they fumbled the baton in their original qualifier. The second chance came after a U.S. protest. With just that clock and the crowd for company, the Americans took the baton around in 41.77 seconds to reach the final.Our coach said before we went out there, `Its just like practice, just the whole world will be watching, said English Gardner, who ran the third leg.Eaton finished with 8,893 points, digging deep through the final lap of the last event, the 1,500 meters, to cross the line third, incredibly matching exactly the Olympic record after 10 events over two days.How cant there be one stinking point in there somewhere? Eaton said.Eaton had briefly darted away from the decathlon to congratulate Clement as his teammate knelt exhausted in the midday sun after winning the hurdles, an indicator of the feel-good surging through the U.S. track team right now.Croatias Sara Kolak won the womens javelin, another first-time Olympic champion like Crouser.And South Africas Caster Semenya, the outright favorite for the womens 800-meter title, qualified fastest for the final as she breezed to victory in her semifinal heat, unchallenged, in 1 minute 58.15 seconds.Semenya, another compelling story at these games but for different reasons to Bolt, will run in the 800 final on Saturday.By then, Bolt will be done at the Olympics forever.Ive worked all my career, all my life, for this moment, Bolt said. So hopefully people can read about me as the greatest.---AP Sports Writer Raf Casert contributed to this report. Micro g Torch Basketball Shoes . Gerald Green and Miles Plumlee?

After Gasquet beat fifth-seeded Ivan Dodig of Croatia 7-5, 6-3, Tsonga followed up with a 6-7 (3), 6-2, 6-2 win against sixth-seeded Edouard Roger-Vasselin in an all-French match. AUBURN, Ala. -- The Auburn offense looked like its old self for at least one game.The quarterbacks were running for nice gains, the tailbacks were churning out yards and all that rushing success translated to big numbers on the scoreboard. That performance in a 51-14 romp over Arkansas State resurrected the formula thats generated the most success for past Gus Malzahn offenses.Of course, it remains to be seen if Auburn can keep it up against stiffer defenses, starting Saturday night against No. 17 Texas A&M.Auburn ran for 462 yards against the Sun Belt Conference team, fourth-most in school history. More importantly for the Tigers might have been how some of those yards were generated.Quarterback Sean White and backup John Franklin III combined for 130 yards on the ground. Whites 60 yards nearly doubled his 2015 total, giving opposing defenses something else to watch out for.I thought that was a big factor that he had some rushing yards, Malzahn said Tuesday. We talked about that in the offseason, that were at our best when our quarterback is a running threat. The fact that he had 60 yards rushing, I thought that was very good and that will help us moving forward. Thats kind of got to be the mindset.Franklin, a junior college transfer, is a speedy threat as a runner but has only attempted one pass. Whites running ability hasnt been on display all that much, but hes hoping to change that.The defense definitely has to respect me running and its something I feel like I havent been able to show, he said. I showed it a little bit this game and I think thats something I have to do all year.Forcing a defensee to be wary of him taking off running can help create more running room for the tailbacks. Nike Tanjun Australia. Kerryon Johnson (124 yards) and Kamry Petway (152), who didnt have a carry in the opener against No. 2 Clemson, both had big games.The performance was a big turnaround from the opener with Clemson, when Auburn was held to 87 yards on the ground. It remains to be seen which game will be closer to the norm.Malzahn has thrived with running quarterbacks like Cam Newton (when the Tigers coach was offensive coordinator) and Nick Marshall. The Tigers became the first Southeastern Conference team to lead the nation in rushing behind Tre Mason and Marshall in 2013. That team won the league title and made the national championship game.Since then, Auburns ground game fell to 13th and then 35th nationally, and the win totals decreased along with it.Thanks to the big game against Arkansas State, the Tigers moved back to the top of the league in rushing.They still havent done it against a Power 5 team. Johnson has had two solid games and totaled 218 yards and three touchdowns after moving into the starting job with the defection of three other tailbacks.The 6-foot, 240-pound Pettway didnt have a carry last season or in the first game. He converted from fullback in the spring and had a 64-yard ramble among his 15 carries against Arkansas State.I just knew I was going to like running the ball again, Pettway said.Ditto for the Tigers.---AP college football website: collegefootball.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
