BUDAPEST, Hungary -- All of Russias weightlifters were banned from the Rio Olympics on Friday for doping for what the international federation called extremely shocking results that brought the sport into disrepute. Best Cheap Nike Dunks .The eight competition spots have been offered to other countries.The International Weightlifting Federation said the integrity of the weightlifting sport has been seriously damaged on multiple times and levels by the Russians. It said the punishment was an appropriate sanction to preserve the status of the sport.The IWF described the doping results as extremely shocking and disappointing.Weightlifting became the second sport after track and field to issue blanket bans on Russian athletes. Other sports -- including rowing, wrestling, modern pentathlon and sailing -- have banned one or more Russians from competing in Rio de Janeiro, but not all of the countrys eligible athletes.To replace the eight Russian lifters in Rio, five countries were offered places in the mens competition -- Belarus, Croatia, El Salvador, Mongolia and Serbia. For the women, Albania, Georgia and Moldova became eligible. Because of the lateness of the decision, the IWF said it was not clear whether all the spots would be filledIn justifying its actions against Russia, the IWF said retests of samples from seven Russian weightlifters who took part in the 2008 Beijing Olympics or 2012 London Olympics resulted in positive tests, and more were expected.Two female weightlifters -- Tatiana Kashirina and Anastasiia Romanova -- were withdrawn by the Russian federation for earlier doping offenses. The names of the other banned lifters were not announced.Four additional weightlifters were mentioned in World Anti-Doping Agency investigator Richard McLarens report -- which alleged a massive cover-up of failed drug tests -- as having benefited from the disappearing positive methodology system used by Russia to mask doping results.The IWF said the ban also applied to Russias technical official for the Rio Games, whose appointment was withdrawn.The IWF ruling took time because on Tuesday it asked the International Olympic Committee and WADA for further clarification on the recent IOC ruling giving individual sports federations the responsibility of deciding which Russian athletes can compete in Rio.Weightlifting has long had problems with doping, though the federation has gradually toughened testing and sanctions. Tellingly, 31 of the 98 positives confirmed so far in the retests of samples taken at the 2008 or 2012 Olympics have been by weightlifters. Nike Dunk Cheap China .C. United of Major League Soccer. United chose the defender in the second round of the 2013 MLS re-entry draft. Nike Dunk Cheap Wholesale . Now, with Game 6 set for Fenway Park and an 8:07 p.m. ET first pitch, the Detroit Tigers face the unenviable task of having to beat the Boston Red Sox twice, on the road, to advance to the World Series. .5 seconds to play in the game, Kevin Love never stopped believing that they would come out of there with a win. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Forty-eight hours, they said, and theyd be ready. Ready to fight for a medal of the wrong color.Nothing against bronze medals, but thats not what the U.S. womens volleyball team intended to bring home from Rio, and it was not what anyone expected the top-ranked team in the world to do as it sought the first gold medal in the programs history.In one of the bigger upsets suffered by the U.S. in these Games, the 2012 silver medalist fell Thursday to Serbia, playing in its first Olympic semifinal, 20-25, 25-17, 25-21, 16-25, 15-13.This one stings, for sure, [but] we have a great example set for us. Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross responded really well after their semifinal loss, and we plan to take that same approach, said team captain Christa Harmotto Dietzen, referring to the American beach volleyball duo that lost in the semifinals before beating the top-seeded Brazilian tandem for the bronze.The obvious difference? Walsh Jennings had never lost in three previous Games.Right now this loss is deeply disappointing. It cuts deep, its very painful, and thats OK. When you care this much, its going to, said U.S. coach Karch Kiraly, the most successful Olympic volleyball player in history, winning gold medals in beach and indoor.Kiraly went to his bench often after an unspecified leg injury early in the second set sidelined Foluke Akinradewo, who had led the U.S. with six points and three blocks in the first set. Experimenting with different lineups, the error-prone Americans were helpless to contain the sudden momentum of the Serbs, who won the second and third sets.Yeah, it was tough when Foluke went down, said Harmotto Dietzen. I think we were a little distracted there for a second because we care so much for her. We obviously wanted to turn this around for her and for everybody thats part of this program.The Americans rallied in a one-sided fourth set in which they converted on a whopping 12-of-18 spikkes. Nike Dunk Wholesale China. They led 12-10 in the final set before Serbia reeled off the next three points and five of the final six. A U.S. serve into the net to set up match point for Serbia was the most devastating point in that match-winning Serbian run.In a topsy-turvy tournament, Serbia will go for gold against either China, led by former U.S. coach Jenny Lang Ping, or the Netherlands, returning to Olympic volleyball competition for the first time in 25 years.What I can say after this game? said Serbian coach Zoran Terzic, whose team lost to the U.S. on Aug. 10 in a pool-play four-setter. I dont have words definitely because this is a historical moment for me, for Serbia volleyball, the first Olympic medal in our history. In this moment we are very happy, very proud, especially the way we played against maybe the best team in the world.Serbia may have been the underdogs, but the Americans, as has been the case in all of their games here, faced a loud majority of fans rooting against them.While Kiraly praised his teams ability to face adversity, he stopped short of using the crowd as an excuse.It had nothing do with the noise, he said. I love the energy in Brazil. Whether its loud against us or for us, that kind of energy and that atmosphere is why were all doing this. We love passion like that.Kiraly, an assistant coach in 2012 who was hired shortly after the London Games to take over a program on the upswing, led the U.S. to the 2014 FIVB World Championship, its first international title. And he was determined, by stressing team as family, to win its first gold medal.Weve built something special over the years. ... I dont know if it will happen four years from now or 52 years from now, he said, but our job is to make an Olympic gold medal happen at some point for the history of the U.S. program.
