into consideration

    导出博客文章RIO DE JANEIRO -- University of Oregon multisport star Devon Allen finished
    fifth in the mens 110-meter hurdles final Tuesday in Rio de Janeiro in the first
    time the Americans have been shut out of a medal in the event.Omar McLeod, the
    world indoor champion, converted his season dominance of the 110m hurdles into
    an Olympic gold medal, a first for Jamaica in the event.Add the hurdles to the
    growing list of things the tiny Caribbean Island is dominating. McLeod said he
    fed off the medal-winning performances of Usain Bolt in the mens 100 and Elaine
    Thompson (gold) and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce (bronze) in the womens 100.You see
    them go out and represent themselves and represent their country, have fun --
    and they win. They harness medals, McLeod said. You want to do the same thing.
    Its contagious. You want to feel how it feels. I felt how it feels.Could McLeod
    turn into the Bolt of the hurdles?Well see, he said. The feeling is
    indescribable. I dont know whats going through my mind right now. I need to go
    back and just recite it a couple times, saying, Youre an Olympic
    champion.McLeod, who was a track standout at the University of Arkansas before
    turning pro, gained the lead quickly and pulled away as he won in 13.05
    seconds.?Cuban-born Orlando Ortega of Spain took silver in 13.17 seconds, and
    Dimitri Bascou of France won bronze in 13.24. Ortega gave Spain its first medal
    in track and field since 2004.I was just thinking, Come on. Go. Go finish,
    Ortega said. I see the [big screen] TV and see my second place. I cant believe
    this moment.Allen said he didnt run the technical race hed hoped for but was
    proud of a top-five finish.?For it being my first international competition, as
    well as my first Olympics, I think I did well, he said. In hurdles, there are
    barriers, and theyre in the way, and its about maneuvering and managing those
    barriers, and my body position wasnt as great as I would have wanted it to be,
    and thats why I wasnt as fast.The Ducks wide receiver said he plans to wind down
    and enjoy the last few days in Rio with his family before?he joins
    his?Oregon?football teammates on the practice field.Ill probably be the
    best-shaped athlete on the field right now, Allen said with a laugh.Allen had
    nine catches for 94 yards last season for the Ducks as he eased back into action
    after tearing a ligament in his right knee during the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1, 2015.
    He said it wont take him long to get up to speed on the football field, and hes
    already at his playing weight of 185 pounds (84 kilograms). Still, rest might be
    a good thing.Jumping back in, it could work, Allen said. But maybe resting will
    make for a better athlete in the long run. Eventually, Ill get back in
    there.During the U.S. Olympic track trials, Allens high school track coach, Tim
    ONeil, said the 21-year-old has the potential to break the world record of 12.80
    seconds.?Asked about ONeils claim following his fifth-place finish Tuesday,
    Allen said the record is still in sight.?I think thats something I am going to
    be doing in the next couple years, he said. This is my fifth year hurdling, and
    you see a lot of guys -- it takes technique to hurdle, and that takes time. The
    world record gets broken at later ages.Aries Merritt was 27, and Liu Xiang was a
    little older. It takes time, and I got nothing but time.There were quite a few
    tumbles and falls in the hurdles Tuesday. Haitis Jeffrey Julmis smacked into the
    first hurdle in his semifinal heat, tumbled over it and took the hurdle right
    along with him. Then he got back up and finished to a roar from the crowd.It
    didnt make sense to go down as a sore loser, Julmis said. The Olympic spirit --
    finish the race.Information from ESPNs?Alyssa Roenigk?and The Associated Press
    was used in this report.?

    . 24 Baylor in a Big 12 clash between teams trending in opposite directions.
    Andrew Wiggins made 10-of-12 from the foul line and scored 17 for Kansas (14-4,
    5-0 Big 12), which capped a stretch of four straight games against ranked
    opponents unscathed.

    Chartier also scored for the Chiefs (3-0-0). Luke Harrison spoiled Garrett
    Hughsons shutout bid with a power-play goal at 13:17 of the third period. The
    Spokane goaltender finished with 28 saves, including a Brandon Fushimi penalty
    shot in the second period that would have tied the game 1-1.

    . Westbrook has missed 27 games since having a procedure on
    Dec. 27 to deal with swelling in his injured right knee — the third operation on
    the knee in nine months. Carlos Sainz believes the drivers are not being
    listened to on matters of safety after F1s Strategy Group decided to postpone
    the introduction of the Halo cockpit protection device until 2018.The FIA cited
    a lack of on-track testing as the reason, but Sainz believes the drivers should
    have made that call once they had been given a chance to test it.If I had to put
    a bet on now, I would say 80% are in favour, maybe 10% are I dont know and maybe
    10% are totally against, Sainz said. But what is clear I think is that every
    driver should try it or should run it before 2017. Every driver should give an
    opinion and then basically a vote between drivers after running the Halo.I think
    this is the most common sense thing to do, even though at the end they probably
    dont take into consideration our vote, which is probably whats going to happen.
    But at least I think every driver should get a chance to run it and give an
    opinion on it.Halo was discussed at Fridays driver briefing with FIA safety
    delegate Charlie Whiting, but Sainz doubts their concerns will be listened to.We
    talked about it, it was definitely a very long meeting, but I dont know how much
    they will listen to us or take into their consideration our point of view, or
    how much of a difference it willl make.dddddddddddd Hopefully it helps and at
    least it takes the drivers view into consideration.Asked why he thought the
    drivers are not being listened to, Sainz added: Its a good question. My opinion
    is everyone took the decision to have a protection device in 2018. It doesnt
    mean its going to be a Halo, it means the FIA and all the teams are going to
    work to provide us with a safety component for 2018, but it probably means in
    2017 well have nothing on the car so it opens the question of what happens if
    something happens in 2017?I think Halo could be - in my opinion - a solution
    just for one year before the come up with something even more technological,
    even more advanced. But its clear for 2017 they cannot bring this. They want to
    bring it in 2018 but what happens in 2017? Then you look back and say maybe we
    should have had the Halo for one year just as a prevention thing before bringing
    on the nice-looking, super safe aspect for 2018 that they have promised us is
    going to happen.Its a question mark that we all have but hopefully it will not
    be like that and hopefully nothing will happen. But we are all aware of it.
