EUGENE, Ore. Chris Davis Jersey . -- At about the same time newly minted members of the U.S. Olympic track team get their uniforms, theyll be led to a TV monitor featuring a map of Rio de Janeiro with three dots: the athletes village, the track teams training center and Olympic Stadium.None of them are all that close to one another; all will take a long time to reach.USA Track and Field CEO Max Siegel said Tuesday that after a few visits to Brazil, we realized logistics would be a problem.So, in addition to counting on the Olympic traffic lanes that will supposedly make travel easier for the 120-plus U.S. track and field Olympians, USATF staff is making it clear to the athletes that they need to build in plenty of time to make their way through the city.Its expected to be a 45-to-60-minute drive from the athletes village to both the stadium and the training center.Its getting coaches and athletes to understand that its not going to be easy, like London, where everything is easy and right there, said Robert Chapman, USATFs associate director for sport science and medicine.Siegel said USATF is working with the U.S. Olympic Committee on contingency plans in case traffic does end up as snarled as some predict. Aretha Thurmond, a four-time Olympian who is now director of international teams for USATF, said staff will be on the ground a full two weeks before the Olympic track meet starts to make test runs to the stadium and map out every possible option for athletes.Theres only so much thats in your control, Thurmond said. Youve got a city with a mountain in the middle, and youve got to go around it.The process of getting from Point A to Point B may seem like a rather low-level concern considering all the other troubles consuming the Olympic city: Zika, polluted water, security concerns amid a financial crisis and more. But, as Thurmond knows, athletes need a comfort level as they head for the biggest competition of their lives.If we know somethings not right, then we try to build that into their travel schedule, she said, so athletes dont have to make that decision.Regarding the mosquito-borne virus that has hit Brazil as hard as any country, Siegel said USATF has taken part in USOC-led seminars and is distributing as much information as possible about health concerns.Among the many leaflets the athletes pick up at team processing in Eugene is one distributed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention called Mosquito Bite Prevention For Travelers. The USOC will give athletes bug repellant when they go through Team USA processing in Houston later this month.But traffic, in Siegels view, is frankly, one of our biggest concerns over things we dont have immediate control over.Siegel spoke on an off day at the U.S. Track and Field Trials, and outlined his vision over the four-plus years since he took over at what is widely viewed as the countrys most difficult-to-manage national governing body.Siegel said USATF ran on an average of $18 million a year when he arrived. Thanks to new sponsorship deals, including 12 new marketing partners, the number has doubled. That has allowed USATF to give $10,000 stipends to athletes who make the national team along with bonuses of up to $25,000 for gold medals at the Olympics.It hardly quiets the federations critics, who believe they should have more freedom to wear whatever gear they choose at the sports biggest events and want to see more revenue sharing beyond the stipends and rewards for medals.One of the most vocal critics, 800-meter runner Nick Symmonds, recently filed a sponsorship-related lawsuit against the USOC that was thrown out. He has been urging athletes and fans to wear black tape at trials as a show of solidarity against the governing bodies.If we cant change things through litigation, then we have to go through protest, and athletes have to stand up and say: `Enough is enough. This will change or were not going to race anymore, Symmonds told The Associated Press last week.Siegel said hes trying to create a bigger pie, but also gave a nod to the reality that USATF, unlike the NFL or NBA, is a not-for-profit organization that serves not only its professional athletes, but also its grassroots members and programs.The conversation gets a little cloudy when people have whatever their personal definition is about sharing money with athletes, he said. If you host an event that gives an athlete a platform, some would say thats not money in the athletes pocket. But someone needs to fund those things. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic .

The 32-year-old, who pleaded not guilty, has been fined 100 per cent of his match fee by match referee Andy Pycroft, but remains free to free to play in the third Test in Adelaide that starts this week. The decision was based on the evidence given from the umpires, who confirmed that had they seen the incident they would have taken action immediately, an ICC statement said. There was a confrontation between a reporter and a South Africa cricket team security guard at Adelaide Airport before the third test with Australia. And from (Marylebone Cricket Club head of cricket John) Stephenson, who confirmed the view of MCC that the television footage showed an artificial substance being transferred to the ball.The row, dubbeed Mintgate, has proved divisive and an Australian TV reporter scuffled with South Africas team security when he tried to question Du Plessis on Monday.
