    导出博客文章The superb Alexis Sanchez scored one and made another as Arsenal turned the
    tables on their bogey team Chelsea with a resounding 3-0 win at the Emirates.The
    Chile forward tormented the Blues all game as his side ran riot with their
    intricate passing play, and got his reward in the 11th minute, stealing the ball
    from the dozing Gary Cahill and running through on goal to dink a lovely finish
    past Thibaut Courtois and into the corner of the net.The stage was set, and the
    Gunners brought the house down just three minutes later with a lovely flowing
    move that created space for Hector Bellerin on the right, the full back
    supplying a square ball for Theo Walcott to apply a simple finish. After that
    the Blues crafted a minor resurgence, and they nearly pulled one back when Eden
    Hazard found Willian, who dragged a low shot narrowly wide from just inside the
    penalty area. Arsenal showed no mercy, however, as they scored again just before
    half time, Mesut Ozil finding Sanchez on the break and volleying the dinked
    return ball down into the turf en route to finding the back of the net.Arsenal
    played an efficient second half rather than a spectacular one, and Chelsea could
    have pulled one back at the death when substitute Michy Batshuayi ran through on
    goal, but Petr Cech made an excellent save.

    Nuggets 122-111. SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Former Olympic sprint stars and civil
    activists Tommie Smith and John Carlos earned fame and scorn when they raised
    their gloved fists on the medal podium at the 1968 Mexico City Games and bowed
    their heads through the national anthem in protest during the heart of racial
    tension in the U.S.They were booted out of the Olympic village, condemned and
    sent home, then eventually celebrated back in the Bay Area years later.As the
    Rio de Janeiro Olympics prepare to kick off this week, these two men returned to
    where they shined on campus at San Jose State and now have a 23-foot statue of
    that history-making moment, helping the university with the announcement Monday
    that it is reinstating the storied mens track and field program in 2018 after
    nearly three decades without one.The Olympic project for human rights was
    started, and it was completed, Smith said Monday. Well stand behind ideas like
    that `til the day we die. This statue on my right represents you all. John
    Carlos and Tommie Smith might be the ones who put a foot on those steps, who
    were standing, but let me tell you, when we walked off, we carried you with us.
    I humbly thank all of you for the support back then. ... One great man said,
    `There is redemptive actions in proactive sacrifices, and I thank God that he
    made it possible and we took those steps to bring it forward.The renowned and
    respected Speed City track team Smith and Carlos carried to success and Olympic
    glory is back at last -- with the two sprinters now in their 70s.Smith won a
    gold medal and Carlos the bronze in the 200 meters in Mexico, committed to their
    Olympic Project for Human Rights. They wore black socks and no shoes to
    represent black poverty, raising their fists to symbolize blackk
    power.ddddddddddddCarlos said he is appreciative of getting another opportunity
    to come back to San Jose State and see so many people that remember and welcome
    us back with love, because thats what we exuded all the time we were here, was
    love for you guys as well.The city of San Jose is embracing the universitys
    decision, also remembering what Smith and Carlos stood for during their
    memorable Olympics in Mexico City.That race was at the forefront of national
    consciousness, San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo said. It raised our national struggle
    for racial justice to global consciousness. And of course today, again, race has
    surged in a national discussion.With many of their former teammates on hand,
    Smith and Carlos cherished the idea that their legacy would carry on through new
    young men in track and field in a place that meant so much to their athletic
    careers. Mens track and field was dropped in 1988.Were also bringing back track
    and field to honor their courageous stand for human rights, athletic director
    Gene Bleymaier said. For several years now weve had a dream, a dream that turned
    into a golden opportunity.The mens program will be reinstated on Oct. 16, 2018,
    50 years to the day after Smith and Carlos made their silent protest. The
    university has a womens program but the team practices 12 miles away at a junior
    college, so part of Mondays announcement was about the start of a $5 million
    fundraising campaign to build a new track and field facility on campus.The mens
    team will begin competition in the spring of 2019, marking the 50th anniversary
    of the schools outdoor track NCAA championship in 1969. ' ' '
