Britains Robbie Grabarz bounced back from almost two years of injury hell to win high jump silver at the World Indoor Championsh Antworten

Britains Robbie Grabarz bounced back from almost two years of injury hell to win high jump silver at the World Indoor Championships in Portland. Rashaad Penny Jersey . The 28-year-old, who questioned his future in the sport after a knee operation in May 2014 left him jumping, in his words, like a 16-year-old girl, produced a first-time clearance at 2.33 metres to make a welcome return to the podium.Grabarz, who won Olympic bronze, European gold and the Diamond Race crown during a memorable season in 2012, could not have timed his return to form better, with the Rio Games coming up in August. It was Great Britains third medal at the Oregon Convention Center, following bronze for both Lorraine Ugen in the long jump and Tiffany Porter in the 60m hurdles on Friday, and gave the team some much-needed reason for cheer after a succession of earlier disappointments.With Qatari favourite Mutaz Essa Barshim clearly not fully fit, Grabarz was edged out of gold by Italian Gianmarco Tamberi, who needed third-time clearances at 2.29m and 2.33m before sailing over 2.36m at the first time of asking. Grabarz celebrates his silver medal on the podium Grabarzs team-mate Chris Baker saw his hopes ended by a best clearance of 2.29m and finished eighth.Erik Kynard, who took silver ahead of Grabarz at London 2012, this time finished with bronze, losing out to the Briton on countback.Grabarz said: Im ecstatic, Ive lost my voice, I just cant quite believe it to be honest.If someone said Id get that result two years ago I wouldnt have believed it, I would have bitten their hand off.They [the days of competing at the top] looked very far away and that just made me train harder. To get the reward here of being able to compete with these guys and get a medal makes it great.Before Grabarzs glorious comeback, though, the day had been going horribly wrong for Britain, with Lynsey Sharp failing to make it past the heats of the 800m and Dina Asher-Smith forced to pull out of the 60m final as a precaution due to a minor hamstring reaction after her semi-final run. Lynsey Sharp chases home Burundis Francin Niyonsaba in the 800m heats Team captain Asher-Smith was gutted after having to settle for fifth place in the 60m in 7.14 seconds.I came here for a medal, I wanted a medal. I came fifth and I didnt run a PB or a seasons best, Im gutted, she said.American Barbara Pierre shocked favourite Dafne Schippers to win 60m gold in 7.02 seconds, with her Dutch rival having to settle for second in 7.04secs.In the morning session Sharp put a positive spin on falling at the first hurdle.The European and Commonwealth silver medallist finished second in her heat, her time of 2mins 02.75secs not quick enough to progress as a fastest loser.Even though it may not look like it was a success, to me it was because Ive learned a lot, said the Scot.It all means Britain are likely to fail to win a gold medal at the biennial World Indoors for only the second time since 1997. They lay in 13th place in the medal table with one day of the championships to go.Ashton Eaton delivered the victory his hometown of Portland craved most of all by winning heptathlon gold for the third time in a row. The USAs Ashton Eaton celebrates winning the heptathlon at the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Portland Eaton followed in the footsteps of his Canadian wife, Brianne Theisen-Eaton, who claimed the pentathlon title on Friday, by finishing with 6470 points.The 28-year-old American finished 288 points ahead of Ukraines Oleksiy Kasyanov in silver.The Netherlands won a gold medal in the 1500m courtesy of Sifan Hassan who triumphed in a time of 4:04.96.American Boris Berian, a college drop-out who used to work at McDonalds, was rewarded for a bold display of front-running with gold in the 800m.Strong enough to hold on as he looked set to get caught in the final 100m, the 23-year-old was thumping his chest as he crossed the line in 1:45.83.And his team-mate Michelle Carter snatched shot put gold moments later thanks to a sixth-round throw of 20.21m.Czech Pavel Maslak retained his 400m title in 45.44, with Bahrains Oluwakemi Adekoya winning the womens event in 51.45.

Bjoerndalen, who had failed to win any major race for two years before Sochi, writes in a Facebook entry that he is "full of energy and inspiration" after winning the 10-kilometre sprint and mixed relay at last months Olympics. Chris Carson Jersey . Bale has had a successful debut season in Spain, and Ancelotti appears ready to reward him with a starting role on Saturday. Ancelotti says "Gareth had some problems at the beginning (of the season) but when he found good physical condition he scored a lot of goals, he had a good impact on the team. . -- Canadas Justin Shin shot an 8-under 64 on Thursday on PGA Wests Nicklaus Tournament Course to take the first-round lead in the Web.ST. LOUIS – The series shifts to the Gateway City, where friendly Cardinals fans are ready to pour into Busch Stadium for a live look at their beloved teams fourth World Series appearance since 2004. The switch to National League rules will have a significant effect on the Red Sox lineup. Mistakes, on Wednesday night by the Cardinals and on Thursday by the Red Sox, have cost each team a game in this series. Were down to a best-of-five and St. Louis has home field advantage, although it must win three in a row to clinch here. Game 3 Preview: Pitching Matchup: Red Sox RHP Jake Peavy (Regular season: 12-5, 4.17, 1.147 WHIP in 144.2IP; Playoffs: 2GS: 0-1, 8.31, 1.5 WHIP in 8.2IP) How the Cardinals match up: Peavy spent the first eight years of his career with the San Diego Padres and there are three Cardinals whove played long enough that they remember Peavys days in the National League. Carlos Beltran: 8-20, .400/.480/.800, 1 HR, 3 2B, 1 3B, 6 RBI, 4 BB.Matt Holliday: 8-28, .286/.474/.393, 1 HR, 5 RBI, 10 BB, 7 K.Yadier Molina: 4-22, .182/.182/.182, 1 RBI, 5 K. Lineup Considerations: The Red Sox are well aware that Mike Napoli will be relegated to a bench role in Game 3, as David Ortiz takes over first base in order to keep his bat in the lineup. There is no designated hitter under National League rules. "I think that we certainly have a little bit of a disadvantage, just simply because of the way our roster is constructed as opposed to theirs," said Peavy. "Theyre a National League ballclub, and theyre going to play with their normal lineup, with the way they were built. Being an Americaan League team, were going to miss a huge middle of the lineup bat. Michael Dickson Jersey. " Also, manager John Farrell has confirmed left-handed hitting Daniel Nava will start in left field over Jonny Gomes, who played in the first two games at Fenway Park. "With the amount of ground to cover in left field, the left-right matchups against Kelly," said Farrell. "Hell continue to factor in here." Pitching Matchup: Cardinals RHP Joe Kelly (Regular season: 10-5, 2.69, 1.355 WHIP in 124IP; Playoffs: 3GS, 0-1, 4.41, 1.531 WHIP in 16.1IP) How the Red Sox match up: Only Shane Victorino and Stephen Drew, playing in the National League in 2012, have faced Kelly. Each has three plate appearances. Drew has a triple against Kelly and Victorino drew a walk. Lineup Considerations: With the right-hander Peavy pitching for Boston, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny will continue to play Matt Adams at first base. Allen Craig, who has two hits in the World Series serving as the designated hitter, has taken ground balls and is closer to being able to play the field. Craig was activated in time for the Fall Classic, having been out since September 4 with a sprained foot. Game 3 Prediction: With so many unknown factors, including the big mistakes weve seen so far, this predicting has become a challenge. If you look at Kellys season and playoff WHIP, it would suggest were going to see the Red Sox with runners on base. Can they cash them? Sure, but the Cardinals scratch and claw at Peavy and the bullpens will sort this game out. St. Louis is better and so the Cardinals will win, 6-5.
