RIO DE JANEIRO -- Russia was stripped of another track and field medal from the 2008 Beijing Olympics on Friday after three athletes were retroactively caught in drug tests, the latest blow to a country reeling from scandals over widespread doping. Wholesale Jazz Jerseys .Russia lost its silver medal in the womens 4x400 relay after Anastasiya Kapachinskaya tested positive for the steroids stanozol and turinabol in a reanalysis of her samples, the International Olympic Committee said.Its the second 2008 relay medal stripped this week from Russia because of doping. On Tuesday, the IOC took away Russias gold in the 4x100 after Yulia Chermoshanskaya tested positive for the same two steroids.Under international rules, an entire relay team loses its medals if one of the runners tests positive.With Kapachinskayas positive, Jamaica is in line to move up from third to silver and Belarus from fourth to bronze in the 4x400 relay.Kapachinskaya was also disqualified from her fifth-place finish in the individual 400 meters.In the two other cases announced Friday, Alexander Pogorelov tested positive for turinabol and was stripped of his fourth-place finish in the decathlon, and Ivan Yushkov had his 10th-place result in the shot put annulled after he tested positive for stanozolol, turinabol and oxandrolone.The three drugs are all traditional steroids that go back decades. Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson tested positive for stanozolol at the 1988 Seoul Olympics, where he was stripped of the gold medal in the 100 meters.The IOC stores doping samples for 10 years so they can be retested when improved methods become available. Using enhanced techniques, the IOC has retested more than 1,000 doping samples from the Beijing Games and 2012 London Olympics to catch cheats who evaded detection at the time. A total of 98 athletes have been caught.For the Beijing and London retests, the IOC used a method that can detect use of steroids going back weeks and months, rather than days.Fridays decision was another black eye for Russia, whose track and field team was banned from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics over allegations of state-sponsored doping. Investigations are continuing into wider systematic doping in Russia involving dozens of other summer and winter Olympic sports. Cheap Swingman Jazz Jerseys .

Julius Randle overcame a scoreless first half and added his sixth double-double in as many games with 14 points and 10 rebounds. http://www.cheapjazzjerseys.com/ .Y. -- Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo had little trouble picking up his first shutout of the season against a Buffalo Sabres team thats having trouble scoring goals. BEREA, Ohio -- Cody Kessler relishes the underdog role. Its the only one hes known.Clevelands rookie quarterback has spent his entire football life overcoming long odds, sidestepping danger and making the best of difficult situations.Hes in a new one.Just three weeks into his first NFL season, Kessler, who was once told his career would not take him further than junior college, will make his regular-season debut Sunday when the Browns (0-2) visit the Miami Dolphins.This wasnt the plan the Browns had in mind for Kessler, but the 23-year-old has experienced enough turmoil to know not everything follows a script.Thats how life is, he said. Youre going to have adversity, youre going to have different things that you dont expect to happen, and its just how you react to them. I know it might sound clich?, but I really believe in that.With Robert Griffin III and Josh McCown sustaining injuries to their left shoulders in the first two weeks, the Browns quickly ran out of options and will now turn to Kessler, a third-round draft pick who started 41 games at USC, to run their offense and lead them.Kessler is the fifth quarterback to start Clevelands past five games and the franchises 26th since 1999.Kessler has been consumed by preparation the past two days. He buried his nose deep in Clevelands playbook, spent hours watching and re-watching the Browns first two losses and studied tape on the Dolphins.Miami roughed up Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson in Week 1 and then knocked New Englands Jimmy Garoppolo from the game a week ago when linebacker Kiko Alonso drove him to the turf.Kessler knows he has to avoid Miamis vice.Their front seven is very physical and I think a lot of that has to do with how well their back four play, Kessler said before practice Wednesday.Their safeties, their DBs, they get after the ball and they hold up really well in coverage and then their front seven get after the quarterback.Browns coach Hue Jackson, whose selection of Kessler stunned draft experts, admires the way his young QB is digging into his assignment.One thing we all know about Cody is he is in this building from morning to night, Jackson said. We have to kick him out. That is just the way he is.He sees this as a tremendous opportunity for himself and I think he wants to go represent himself and the organization and his teammates well. He iis preparing as hard as he can to get himself ready to play. Cheap Jazz Jerseys Authentic. Kesslers path to the pros was not normal.After deciding in high school to focus on football, he didnt get any major college offers and there was a long period when it appeared his dreams would be dashed.His father, Don, a former corrections officer, drove him around to various summer camps and put together highlight videos hoping to entice a major college to take a chance on his son.There was times when people would just say, `Hey, youre not going to play college, expect to go to the junior college here in Bakersfield, he said.Kessler wouldnt let rejection discourage him.I just kept telling myself I want to be bigger, I want to be better than that and I want to continue to work, he said. And it paid off. Just worked for me, just kind of always having that no-quit mentality.Browns Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas has been impressed with the focus, work ethic and humility Kessler has shown.You admire a guy that kind of has a chip on his shoulder, a guy like Cody who has had to work for everything and hasnt been given anything, Thomas said. A smaller guy, not your 6-6, 250-pound quarterback, so you respect him because everything he has gotten, hes earned it.At USC, Kessler fought to win playing time and wound up throwing 88 touchdown passes while enduring numerous coaching changes and playing in one of college footballs most celebrated programs.Kessler recalled missing a potential touchdown with an incompletion on his first throw before connecting 15 times in a row.It was a cool experience, he said. But it was something that youll never forget. Like a situation like this, something that youll never forget and something you want to take advantage of.Game notes WR Terrelle Pryor would sacrifice everything for his team. Ill do anything to help us win, anything, cut my finger off, do whatever Ive got to do, he said. Im willing to die on this field.... Rookie DE Carl Nassib had surgery on his broken left hand. Jackson believes Nassib, who has been impressive so far, will be back soon. ...
