Ilya Zakharov of Russia failed to advance out of the semifinals. He hit his feet on the board on his first dive in the prelims Antworten

RIO DE JANEIRO -- China is golden again, winning its fifth diving title of the Rio Olympics.Cao Yuan led throughout to win mens 3-meter springboard with 547.60 points on Thursday. He climbed out of the water after his last dive and pumped both fists in celebration.Jack Laugher of Britain earned silver with 523.85 for his countrys first medal in the event and his second in Rio de Janeiro. He and Chris Mears won synchronized 3-meter to give Britain its first gold in diving, spoiling Chinas bid to sweep all eight golds in Brazil.Patrick Hausding of Germany rallied from 10th after the semifinals to take bronze at 498.50.The water in the diving pool was back to its usual blue color a week after turning a murky green in one of the biggest embarrassments of the games for local organizers.With four-time Olympic champion Greg Louganis looking on, Cao led all six rounds in the final. The 21-year-old Chinese finished off his performance by scoring 96.90 on his last dive, a forward 4+ somersault tuck.Hes incredible, American Kristian Ipsen said. Hes so athletic, just really, really quick. Hes fun to watch.In the fifth round, Laugher performed the same dive that Cao saved for last and received the same 96.90 total.But it was Hausding who did the difficult dive the best of anyone. He earned 98.80, the highest score of anyone in the 12-man final.Why am I not first? Hausding said, laughing. But Im totally fine with third place.The 27-year-old German overcame knee and shoulder injuries to make it to Rio. He had surgery on his knee and is taking painkillers for his shoulder.Ive had a rough season with less training. I started very badly into this competition, Hausding said. But I kept myself mentally strong. Didnt watch the scores. Just did my thing. It was the right decision in the end.Cao added gold to the bronze he won earlier in synchro 3-meter. His teammate, He Chao, didnt make it out of the preliminaries on Monday, when strong winds and cold wreaked havoc on the competition. World champion He balked on his second and third dives and scored just 27.75 on his third attempt -- the lowest score given to a Chinese diver so far in Rio.Competing in the finals by myself added a lot of pressure, Cao said through a translator. I was able to let go and really focus on putting on my performance and putting up a show.Defending Olympic champion Ilya Zakharov of Russia failed to advance out of the semifinals. He hit his feet on the board on his first dive in the prelims and then he barely topped 50 points in the next two rounds.Laugher had his own problems, barely grabbing the last spot for the final earlier in the day.Its actually my personal worst score since London, where I actually failed a dive, he said, laughing. For me, it was a bit of a shocker, literally 60 points less than what Ive scored in ages. I realized if I just did a good dive to finish, I might make the final. I had luck on my side today.Ipsen finished fifth and teammate Mike Hixon was 10th.The semifinals were held in sunny and hot conditions; the nighttime finals were in cooler weather.I actually knew going into it that it was going to be an interesting Olympics, it was going to be different than some of the others just because its an outdoor facility, Ipsen said. There are a lot more variables that you have to deal with compared to an Olympics thats indoors. Cheap Tom Brady Michigan Jersey . Listen to the game live on TSN Radio 1050 at 7pm et.

Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer in a three-run first inning and the Indians maintained their hold on an AL wild-card spot with a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night. MADISON, Wis. -- One start into his college career, Wisconsin quarterback Alex Hornibrook has shown he can handle big-game pressure.Hornibrook stood firm in the pocket and made third-down completions into tight coverage in the eighth-ranked Badgers win over Michigan State.The stakes are only going to get higher this weekend at No. 4 Michigan.Its really just confidence, being able to know that you can make those passes, receiver Robert Wheelwright said about Hornibrooks third-down throws.Hornibrooks poise and accuracy have stood out, especially for a redshirt freshman. Coach Paul Chryst, known as a quarterback guru and a stickler for preparation, also likes how Hornibrook gets ready for games.That takes time and theres a lot that goes into it, Chryst said. Its never-ending.All that work has paid off so far for Wisconsin (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten). A consistent passing game can make defenses think twice about stacking the box to stop lead running back Corey Clement.Hornibrook was 16 of 26 for 195 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the 30-6 win over the Spartans. The offense was 7 of 16 on third downs.Some of those conversions didnt look easy.On the first touchdown drive, Hornibrook found receiver Jazz Peavy for a 25-yard gain on third-and-10 from the Badgers 35. He hit well-covered tight end Troy Fumagalli to convert a third-and-2 later in the drive.I saw him throw one to Fumagalli, its a tight window, and it was like, `Dang, I see you, Wheelwright recounted on Tuesday about Horrnibrooks impressive throw.ddddddddddddhree plays later, Hornibrook found Wheelwright for a 9-yard gain on third down to get to the Michigan State 3. The Badgers then converted the second of two successful fourth-down tries on the drive to set up a 1-yard touchdown pass to tight end Eric Steffes.He put them in a perfect spot, Peavy said. It feels just like practice most of the time when they look that easy like that. I wouldnt say theyre tough at all.It could go smoother if Wisconsin could get into shorter third-down situations. Its a crucial goal on the road on Saturday against the Wolverines, who are holding opponents to just 12 percent on third-down conversions.But if its a third-and-long, Wisconsin has shown that it can convert, too. Now that Hornibrook has proven that he can make those critical throws under pressure, receivers know they might have a little more leeway if their timing is a bit off.Just knowing sometimes you might not always get your depth, or you might not always be exactly where you need to be, but if you have good timing and good chemistry, you can still find those holes, Wheelwright said. Just knowing that you can be off a little bit and still make a pass.---AP freelance writer Dennis Semrau contributed to this story.---Online:AP College Football: Genaro Armas at: ' ' '
