e wants to stay on as Australias Olympic team boss for the 2020 Tokyo Games.Chiller endured a torrid debut in the job, tasked wi Antworten

An emotional Kitty Chiller has declared she wants to stay on as Australias Olympic team boss for the 2020 Tokyo Games.Chiller endured a torrid debut in the job, tasked with improving team culture while also dealing with many security challenges thrown up by the Rio Games and her high-profile performance came in for criticism at times.However she believes strong groundwork has been laid and she revealed on return home from Rio on Wednesday that she hoped to stay in the job.If people think that I have something to offer I would love to be involved, Chiller said.Weve set up a great culture in this team now and I would love to continue to build on that in the next four years.Australia recorded its worst medal haul in Rio since Barcelona in 1992, with eight golds and 29 in total.However Chiller pointed to the youth of the team as a reason for hope, despite what she labelled a Games of missed opportunities.This was a games where we demonstrated the strength of our youth, she said.Sixty-five per cent of our team were Olympic rookies, 43 per cent under the age of 25, the depth and strength of our team and our youth is our future and Tokyo looms large.Having engaged in pre-Games sparring with tennis stars Nick Kyrgios and Bernard Tomic over their behaviour - both opted out of Rio - Chiller maintained her hardline disciplinary stance at the Games.Swimmers Emma McKeon and Josh Palmer were publicly disciplined for breaches of team rules, although Chiller later relented on McKeon and let her go to the closing ceremony.The biggest issue came when Australian Olympic Committee CEO Fiona de Jong had to negotiate the release of nine Australian athletes from a Rio police station following alleged tampering of accreditation passes, seemingly aided by a team official.A teary Chiller exonerated the athletes of blame and apologised to them, while an AOC investigation into that matter was to start immediately on arrival home.Chillers performance will be reviewed by the AOC before it decides on its chef de mission for the Tokyo Olympics.The difficult campaign clearly took a personal toll and Chiller was teary on the teams arrival in Sydney.But she said the team culture was the biggest success.It was a lot of investment over the last three years and its paid off, every single team member bought into it, Chiller said.What you see here today is evident of what you see every day in the village.All the athletes supporting each other, working with each other, celebrating and commiserating, it generally was one team.

The lawyers filed a 33-page amended complaint Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan, expanding on the suit originally filed Oct. 3 in New York Supreme Court.

Cheap Air Max Ireland . Laudrup revealed Thursday he was notified of his dismissal in "the briefest of letters which gave no reasons why such hasty and final action was deemed necessary. Cheap Authentic Air Max . With the first unit struggling of late and Amir Johnson - one of the teams iron men - hobbling on an injured right ankle, Patterson knew he could get the nod in a challenging matchup against one of the leagues up and coming players at his position. PITTSBURGH -- It might feel like a do-over Saturday when the Washington Nationals and Pittsburgh Pirates play the second game of their three-game series at PNC Park.Thanks to Pittsburghs 11-inning, 6-5 win Friday, Washington is still trying to clinch the National League East title, and the Pirates are still clinging to long odds that they will get into the postseason.Actually, even if the Nationals had won Friday, they would not have clinched because their magic number was two and the New York Mets won. But a win would have left Washington in control and needing just a win Saturday -- or in any of its last nine regular-season games -- to capture its third division title in five years.Pittsburgh also has nine games left, but a 3 1/2-game mountain to get into a wild-card position might be insurmountable.Still, getting the win Friday to help keep their hopes alive and avoid a scenario where Washington gets to celebrate at their home park was something positive for the Pirates -- and especially for rookie Jacob Stallings, who hit a walk-off pinch-hit RBI single with two outs and a full count in the 11th.Obviously, its a big win for us trying to make the playoffs, Stallings said. It was pretty cool.Washingtons Joe Ross (7-5, 3.48 ERA) is slated to start Saturday, his second start since coming off the disabled list after recovering from a shoulder injury.After being out 2 1/2 mmonths, Ross allowed one run on six singles in three innings on Sunday, throwing 51 pitches, in the Nationals rain-shortened loss against Atlanta the Braves.dddddddddddd felt good, and that was what I was mainly concerned with, Ross told the Washington Post after that game. Just going out there feeling good and competing.The Nationals hope for a little more from Ross, and look for him to go longer Saturday. That is particularly true now after Washington used seven relievers Friday.Before he got hurt, Ross struck out a career-best 11 in 7 1/3 innings in a 4-1 Washington win over Pittsburgh that was Ross third major league start.Ross will be matched against one of the Pirates steadiest starters over the past seven weeks.Ivan Nova (12-7, 4.19 ERA) has been more than steady since the Pirates acquired him from the New York Yankees Aug. 1.In his first nine starts with Pittsburgh, he is 5-1 with a 2.93 ERA with 46 strikeouts and just three walks.He has made just one career start against Washington, a 4-1 win while pitching for the Yankees in 2012.Nova has been so good that reports abound that the Pirates will not be able to afford to re-sign him despite their interest in doing so.For now, Pittsburgh needs him to keep its playoff hopes alive Saturday.
