    Werner.None of these accomplished skiers have achieved what Steven Nyman is
    aiming for this season: To become the first American man to claim the
    season-long World Cup downhill title.Having finished sixth in the past two
    seasons -- and within 76 points (less than the 100 points earned with one race
    win) of the crystal globe trophy last season -- Nyman believes he has what it
    takes to surge into the top spot.Its a possibility in my head, because I
    performed really well in the beginning of last season and I performed really
    well in the end of the year, Nyman said on Thursday after placing second in the
    final downhill training session on his preferred course in Val Gardena. So if I
    can figure out how to link all that together I definitely have a shot at the
    title.But its a big step and big names like Bode and Daron and (A.J.) Kitt and
    (Kyle) Rasmussen and Bill Johnson -- nobody has ever won it, Nyman added. So for
    me to say that is a big statement.Miller came close to the title in 2008,
    finishing five points behind Didier Cuche when the final downhill of the season
    was canceled in Bormio.Rahlves finished a distant second to Stephan Eberharter
    in 2003.If Nyman does realize his goal, hell raise the trophy on home snow at
    the World Cup Finals in Aspen, Colorado, not far from Nymans hometown of
    Sundance, Utah.After finishing only 15th in the opening downhill of this season
    in Val dIsere, France, this month, Nyman will be looking for a lot more on
    Saturday in Val Gardena, where he has claimed his only three career wins.With
    one more downhill win in Val Gardena, Nyman can match the course record shared
    by Austrian great Franz Klammer and Italian great Kristian Ghedina.Ive performed
    at most of the hills already so I just have to really stay focused and execute,
    Nyman said. The equipment is styled. Everything has been pretty good. My body is
    quite healthy.Over his career, Nyman has achieved podium results in five other
    World Cup resorts -- including a third-place on the course in South Korea that
    will host the Pyeongchang Olympics in 2018.Still, Nyman hasnt been able to win
    anywhere else besides Val Gardena.When I see him ski here the confidence seems a
    lot higher, Canadian rival Erik Guay said. I dont think Ive seen him ski with
    that kind of confidence in a place like Beaver Creek or Kitzbuehel.Peter Fill of
    Italy, who grew up just down the road from the Val Gardena course, is the
    defending downhill champion.Win or lose, Nyman will enjoy himself in Val
    Gardena.On Sunday, Nyman will take his annual tour around the Sellaronda, a
    40-kilometer (25-mile) loop of interconnected trails around the Sella Range
    massif in the heart of the Dolomites that traverses four Alpine passes.Last
    year, Nyman completed the Sellaronda on a mono ski.And I had never mono skied
    before. It was a long 40 kilometers. It took all day. But it was a lot of fun.
    You cant get a bad view here. And to ski all the way around and witness the air
    show in Alta Badia for the giant slalom is pretty exciting.Nyman finishes off
    his tour with a seafood dinner at the Emilio Comici refuge in Val Gardena.The
    fish is brought in every day from the Mediterranean so its top notch, Nyman
    said. Theyre proud of their food here and I like eating a lot of it. The people,
    the food, the air. Its kind of like the Mediterranean air. I step out of the car
    here and I just feel at home. Our hosts, the Demetzs, is family to us.When Nyman
    returns to Val Gardena next year, hes hoping it will be as the reigning World
    Cup downhill champion.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter:
    . -- Linebacker Myles Jack ran for four touchdowns, defensive end Cassius Marsh
    caught a scoring pass, and No.
    . Badenhop was 2-3 with a 3.47 ERA in 63 relief appearances for Milwaukee this
    season. He is 18-20 in his career with three saves and a 3.
    . -- Cam Newton pranced into the end zone, placed his hands over his chest and
    did his familiar Superman pose.
    . "Four now," Carl Gunnarsson told the Leaf Report proudly following a 5-2
    victory over New York on Tuesday night, the clubs fifth straight at home.
    . But now that hes in the NHL, the Calgary Flames centre showed big improvement
    in that department by scoring the winner in the eighth round of a 5-4 shootout
    victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday. In another life, Leilani Latu wouldve
    been just another big dog.But ahead of Sundays NRL elimination final against
    Canterbury, Latu will be Penriths biggest cat in a Moore Park cage full of the
    baddest canines out of Belmore.Ahead of his first game against his former club,
    the Panthers prop credits the Bulldogs for a breakout season that finally showed
    why many rated Latu a better prospect than David Klemmer.So impressive has the
    23-year-old been at the foot of the mountains this year that he became just one
    of five players across the league to be handed a contract until the end of the
    2020 season.And he owes most of it down to his old coaches.Everything that you
    see me do for Penrith, Ive learnt from the Bulldogs, especially from Jim Dymock
    as well, being a former ball-playing forward, Latu told AAP.Its just a credit to
    the program and the system theyre doing over there.Theres some big bodies over
    there but with the help of (assistant coach) Kelly Egan and Dymock that aare
    training them over there, theyre very skilful as well.ddddddddddddLatu came
    through a stacked Bulldogs juniors side that a string of NRL graduates,
    including current Bulldogs Klemmer and halfback Moses Mbye.We were all part of
    the originals from Harold Matts and SG Ball, Latu said.However a series of
    injuries, including major foot, knee and shoulder surgery, stunted Latus
    development and it appeared as though he would be another prospect to fall
    through the cracks.He played no more than a dozen games in the under-20s, and
    remembered thinking his career was over before it began when he was told he was
    free to sniff offers outside the kennel at Canterbury.At the time, no clubs were
    interested in me, he recalled.But then I got a phone call from Phil Gould one
    day and he just said I see the potential in you and I want you to come play for
