    导出博客文章Schoolteacher Jennifer Hens has the honour of firing the first shots for
    Australia at the Rio Olympics.Hens is the only member of the 18-strong national
    shooting team entered in the womens 10m air rifle early on day one of full
    competition at the Games on Saturday (local time).Australia has never produced
    an Olympic medallist in the womens air rifle and there are a number of more
    highly fancied athletes on the Australian team including rising double trap star
    James Willett, trap shooter Mitchell Iles and veteran rifle shooter Warren
    Potent.But Hens is not ruling out the possibility of causing an upset.I have the
    technique to get it right on the day and anything can happen at the Olympics, so
    yes, (my competitors) should be worried, the 30-year-old told the Blue Mountains
    Gazette before departing for Rio.Hens is based in Germany where she balances her
    shooting career with a full-time job as a science teacher.The other two
    Australian shooters in action on Saturday are Daniel Repacholi and Blake
    Blackburn in the mens 10m air pistol.The Australian shooting squad in Rio spans
    the full range of the experience spectrum, all the way from 16-year-old Aislin
    Jones to 54-year-old Potent, a bronze medallist eight years ago in Beijing who
    is competing at his fifth straight Olympics.

    . As the crowd erupted, Davis knocked the ball off the glass and
    back into his hands. With 1:14 to go in overtime, Davis sixth block also became
    his 17th rebound. That, along with his 32 points -- which tied a career high --
    proved too much for Denver to overcome, and the Pelicans held on for their third
    straight victory, 111-107 on Sunday night.

    "It was nerve-wracking, but we pulled through," said Collaros, who threw four

    THE SUNSET side of Tennessees ever-expanding football facility, high above the
    practice fields, is the Peyton Manning Room. Accessible only to visiting
    dignitaries and the biggest of boosters, the room is draped in accolades
    bestowed upon the greatest of all Vols: Pro Bowl jerseys, his Super Bowl MVP
    award, trophies named for Maxwell, OBrien and Unitas. Alas, there is one bronze
    statue missing. Nearly two decades later, the absence of the Stiff-Armed One
    still stings, and always will, because its inclusion once seemed so
    inevitable.From the minute I announced I would come back for my senior year,
    everywhere I went, class or a restaurant or wherever, people congratulated me on
    winning the Heisman, Manning recalls now of the award that would go to Michigans
    Charles Woodson. We were fortunate enough to get off to a nice start that year,
    and it only got worse. So I always tried to politely remind them that I was
    pretty sure they didnt give it out in September. They do it in December. And
    December was still a long ways away.Manning wasnt the first September Heisman
    victim, and he certainly wasnt the last. This years presumed winner, Louisville
    quarterback Lamar Jackson, can ask Denard Robinson and Michigan fans about how
    the quarterback led the nation in rushing over September. But Shoelace & Co.
    lost five of their last seven regular-season games in 2010, and Cam Newton took
    the stage in New York. Or he can ask the folks in West Virginia about Geno
    Smith, who threw 20 TD passes and zero picks in September 2012 ... then fell out
    of the race with five straight Big 12 losses. Or he could ask LSUs current
    superstar. Leonard Fournette topped everyones Heisman rankings entering last
    October, averaging 210 rushing yards per game, but averaged less than half that
    in games against the SEC West in November and didnt get an invite to the
    ceremony.Its a compliment, and you have to take it that way, Fournette says of
    the buzz. But it can get out of control real fast. Ive used it as a lesson. What
    I did last week doesnt matter; what I do this week does. I tell guys that all
    the time -- not just on my team but anybody fortunate enough to get a little
    hype.If Fournettes 2015 September was intoxicating, then Jacksons start to 2016
    shouuldnt be street legal.dddddddddddd Through his first five games, he has 28
    TDs (14 rushing and 14 passing), and his 2,313 yards of total offense leads the
    nation.Hes on pace to reach 20 TDs through the air and 20 TDs via his feet by
    Game 8. Only four players have hit that mark in a full season: Tim Tebow,
    Newton, Johnny Manziel and Colin Kaepernick. The first three won Heismans. But
    only Tebow shouldered the weight of being the cover boy for every preview
    magazine. Newton and Manziel pulled off their magic past midseason, making
    Heisman front-runners vanish into thin air.Ive always been glad that I got to
    kind of ease into the spotlight, Newton says. Once I got into that spotlight, it
    was tough. I cant imagine what it wouldve been like had it been like that from
    the first day. By October youd already be exhausted.The guy Jackson most
    resembles, Baylors Robert Griffin III, pulled away from Andrew Luck to win the
    2011 Heisman despite three October losses. His November was too electrifying for
    voters to ignore, especially his eight total TDs against Oklahoma and
    Texas.Jacksons fan base at Louisvilles Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium still smarts
    over the buzz and bust of Teddy Bridgewater in 2013 (thanks, Central Florida).
    The Cardinals went 12 -- 1 that year, but that lone stumble to one-loss UCF was
    enough to sink him.Jacksons play is so dynamic that even a 42 -- 36 loss in the
    closing seconds to Clemson and its trophy contender, Deshaun Watson, may have
    only burnished his shine. On the road, Jackson threw for 295 yards and a
    touchdown and rushed for 162 yards and two scores. Since 2011, only one Heisman
    winner, FSU QB Jameis Winston in 2013, has played on an undefeated team. And
    over that span, Heismans have gone to three players with two or more losses.
    Jackson will have to maintain his level of play against a better-than-expected
    ACC and in Houston against a Cougars team with the nations No. 3 scoring defense
    (11.2 ppg).My goal is to win games, the 19-year-old sophomore says. In September
    thats what we did, and Im glad people recognized that. Now I hope they recognize
    us in December too. Not me, us.And if Jackson wins the Heisman, maybe Papa John
    will let Peyton Manning hold it. ' ' '
