LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- With the eight-year deadline for IOC action approaching, U. [url=spamer://no]spamer://no[/url] .S. anti-doping officials have agreed to turn over files on American cyclist Tyler Hamiltons doping case so the Olympic body can decide whether to readjust the medals from the 2004 Athens Games. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency agreed to the IOCs request to provide the documents so it can proceed to formally strip Hamilton of the time-trial gold after he admitted doping and possibly move other cyclists up in the medals, the International Olympic Committee said Tuesday. The case is gaining urgency because the IOCs eight-year statute of limitations for revising results runs out in August. "USADA is looking into the Hamilton case and what we are waiting for is the result of their discussions," IOC vice-president Thomas Bach said Tuesday. "USADA assured us that we will get the report before the (deadline) expires. "They said they are aware of this and will make sure we get the information on time." The move comes as the Russian Olympic Committee presses its bid for retired Russian rider Viatcheslav Ekimov, who finished second behind Hamilton in Athens, to be upgraded from silver to gold. American Bobby Julich finished third in Athens, with Michael Rogers of Australia fourth. Bach said the IOC would hold off opening its own disciplinary procedures and would wait for USADAs files. "There is still time," he said. After years of denials, Hamilton told CBSs "60 Minutes" last year that he had repeatedly used performance-enhancing drugs. USADA said at the time that Hamilton had turned over his gold medal to the doping agency, but the IOC has not received it and the result has not been officially overturned. USADA is still investigating doping in cycling. Before adjusting the results and reallocating the medals, the IOC wants to be certain there is nothing in the U.S. investigation that implicates other riders or their coaches from the Athens cycling competition. One potential option is for the IOC to disqualify Hamilton but not readjust the medals. The IOC had initially hoped to take action on the case at its two-day executive board meeting that started Tuesday in Lausanne. Now it must wait for further meetings in the next few months. Hamilton came under investigation by the IOC during the Athens Games when he tested positive for a blood transfusion in his initial doping sample. The case was dropped after his backup "B" sample was mistakenly frozen and couldnt be properly tested. Hamilton tested positive a month later at the Spanish Vuelta. After serving a two-year suspension, he returned to cycling but tested positive again for a banned substance in 2009 and was banned for eight years. Standing to receive the Athens gold medal is Ekimov, a former teammate of Hamilton and seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong. Ekimov already has two Olympic gold medals -- the track team pursuit at the 1988 Seoul Games and the road time trial at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. The Russians failed in a 2006 appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport to have Hamiltons gold given to Ekimov. But they recently sent a letter to IOC President Jacques Rogge asking for the medal. Ekimov rode with Armstrong on the U.S. Postal and Discovery Channel teams. He retired from cycling at the end of the 2006 season but remained in the sport as a director of the Discovery and RadioShack teams. Hamilton, who helped Armstrong win the Tour in 1999, 2000 and 01, accused Armstrong in the CBS interview of doping. In February, U.S. federal prosecutors dropped their investigation into whether Armstrong and his team engaged in a doping program. Armstrong has vigorously denied all allegations of doping.

Kevin Durant had 31 points, eight rebounds and eight assists, Serge Ibaka had 21 points and 12 rebounds and the Oklahoma City Thunder continued their home dominance, beating the Memphis Grizzlies 86-77. [url=spamer://no]spamer://no[/url] . If one fighter gases, he usually gets beat up pretty bad from that point on. [url=spamer://no]spamer://no[/url] .com) - The Memphis Grizzlies are fully recovered from a stomach virus that plagued nearly half the team earlier in the week.TORONTO - It was a game with a sickening injury in the opening seconds and a stirring comeback in the final minute.An emotional roller-coaster of an MLS contest Saturday started with Portland Timbers captain Will Johnson being taken to hospital with a broken leg and ended when Michael Bradley, one of his best friends, completed a Toronto FC comeback with an 89th-minute goal for a 3-2 win.For them a teammate, for me a very close friend, Bradley, speaking in the Toronto locker-room afterwards, said of the Canadian international Johnson. Look for anybody else in here, you hate to see somebody down like that.Theres still a game to be played. Unfortunately theyre still passing out points at the end of the game.Rookie defender Nick Hagglund scored twice in the second half to set the stage for Bradley, whose curling free kick from more than 35 yards out went through a mass of players a freezing goalie Donovan Ricketts a and into the goal without being touched.Rallying from a 2-0 deficit after just 16 minutes, Toronto scored three second-half goals in 27 minutes in a character-defining comeback.These are the kind of days that can change seasons, said Bradley, who initiated Torontos second goal via another free kick.We know theres still a lot we can improve on, we still need to be better, he added. Were still right in the thick of it.But if you use these kind of afternoons in the right way, they can give you a real boost.The game, played on a sunny 22 C afternoon before an announced sellout crowd of 22,591 at BMO Field, was a matchup of two teams on the playoff bubble, with both carefully watching results of clubs around them.The Timbers started the day in fifth place in the West while Toronto was seventh in the East, three points out of the playoff picture.The win moved TFC into fifth place and a playoff spot, at least temporarily pending the outcome of the Columbus-Montreal game later in the day. Eastern-leading D.C. United did Toronto a favour by defeating Philadelphia 1-0.Toronto (11-11-7) stretched its unbeaten streak to three (2-0-1) while recording a franchise record 11th win of the season, surpassing the club mark for victories (10) and points (39), both set during a 10-11-9 season in 2009.Coach Greg Vanney called it a remarkable comeback.When I look in the guys eyes after, theyre believing, he said. Theyre very much believing in what they have to accomplish this season.The loss snapped Portlands unbeaten streak at four but the outcome will be overshadowed by the loss of its influential and popular captain.It turned into a game of two halves, with Portland holding the edge in the first a scoring twice in the first 16 minutes a and Toronto taking over in the second.Fanendo Adi scored for Portland, which also got an own goal from Toronto captain Steven Caldwell.Toronto started its comeback in the 62nd minute with Hagglund rising high tto head in a cross from Daniel Lovitz for his first MLS goal. [url=spamer://no]spamer://no[/url]. Minutes later, Ricketts stopped Dominic Oduro from in close to preserve the lead.Toronto made it 2-2 eight minutes later off another Bradley free kick that went through a mass of humanity before an open Hagglund, whose giveaway led to Portlands first goal, headed the ball down and it went in at the far post.The game started on a disastrous note for Portland, with Johnson injuring his right leg in a shin-on-shin collision with Toronto fullback Mark Bloom in a 50-50 challenge that saw both players sliding to get to the ball first. Johnson immediately grabbed his right leg just below the knee and motioned to be substituted.He was taken off on a stretcher with a fractured fibula and tibia in his right leg after a lengthy delay with Bradley looking on closely. The injury led to eight minutes extra time at the end of the first half.Johnson remained in Toronto to have surgery.Bloom was able to continue and wasnt penalized on the play. But he was in pain after the game, his leg throbbing from the collision.Referee Ismail Elfath pocketed his whistle for much of the contest, infuriating both sides at different times but helping make for a fast-paced, exciting game.The offensively gifted, defensively challenged Timbers came into the game with 52 goals, averaging 1.79 a game to stand third best in the league, and had scored three or more in three of their last four MLS games. And they carved open Torontos backline repeatedly.Portland went ahead in the 13th minute when Hagglunds pass out of defence hit midfielder Diego Chara, who fed Adi. The Nigerian striker headed straight into the penalty box and his low right-footed shot beat Joe Bendik.Three minutes later, it was 2-0 after Toronto failed to clear a corner. Diego Valeri, who pulled the Portland strings for most of the day, raked the ball across the penalty box and it bounced in off Caldwell.Caldwell thought he had repaid the debt three minutes later when his header off a Bradley free kick beat Ricketts. But the play was called offside.Toronto should have pulled to within a goal in the 20th minute when Oduros cross beat everyone and found Gilberto at the far post with the net wide open. But the Brazilians stubbed shot somehow went wide.Portland almost scored an own goal of its own in the 36th minute when defender Pa Modou Kahs attempted clearance of an Oduro cross rattled off the goalpost.Rodney Wallace shot wide in the 53rd minute, clutching his head in disbelief after Portland sliced through the Toronto backline yet again.The game marked the second time in club history that Toronto FC has overcome a two-goal deficit to win in MLS league playIt also was the 15th consecutive sellout at BMO Field, helping set a league record as the 113th soldout match across all teams this season.Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter [url=spamer://no]Cheap China Jerseys[/url] [url=spamer://no]Cheap NFL Jerseys[/url] [url=spamer://no]Cheap NFL Jerseys China[/url] [url=spamer://no]Cheap Jerseys From China[/url] [url=spamer://no]China NFL Jerseys[/url] [url=spamer://no]Cheap Jerseys[/url] [url=spamer://no]Cheap Jerseys China[/url] ' ' '
