  • 09 Jul
    Canadian curler Matt Dumontelle has been suspended for two years from competition after an anti-doping rule violation during the World Mens Curling Championship in Victoria. Dumontelle, the alternate player for the team skipped by Brad Jacobs, tested positive for the banned substance Methandienone Metabolites in a test following the gold-medal game. The result does not affect Canadas silver-medal finish at the World Championship, nor does it have any ramifications for the Jacobs team. "We are disappointed to hear this news," said Canadian Curling Association (CCA) Chief Executive Officer Greg Stremlaw. "We take the issue of doping in sports extremely seriously, and we stress repeatedly and emphatically to our athletes how important it is to respect the rules set down by the World Anti-Doping Agency. We respect the findings of the tests, and will pursue no further action on behalf of the athlete in question. In the end, regardless of the circumstance, our athletes are solely responsible for everything that enters their body. Having said that, we are firm in the belief that our athletes respect the rules and will continue to display a high standard of following them. As well, the CCA will continue to provide educational resources to our athletes on the subject of doping. Players who compete in national and international events are told in advance, and in clear language, of the anti-doping rules and the importance of following them." Dumontelle informed the CCA, World Curling Federation and the World Anti-Doping Agency that he has acknowledged the violation and has waived his right to appeal the finding. His two-year sanction ends on May 6, 2015 (two years from the date of the provisional suspension being assessed), and makes him ineligible to participate in any sport that is part of the Canadian Anti-Doping Program during the time of the suspension. "I take full responsibility for the findings of the positive test at the World Championship in Victoria. I am truly sorry for letting down my teammates, the Canadian Curling Association and curling fans across Canada," said Dumontelle. "I was taking a workout supplement that I believed was safe; clearly, it was not and I regret that decision. I had no intentions of trying to beat the system. I was made aware by our Canadian Curling Association High Performance staff of my responsibilities to respect and follow the rules as set down by the World Anti-Doping Agency. At the end of the day I accept that it was, and is, my responsibility to make sure that I am playing by those rules." "We have been informed of the positive finding for alternate player Matt Dumontelle, and while we remain friends with Matt, we in no way condone his actions," said E.J. Harnden, the second for Team Jacobs. "We respect the rules of the the World Anti-Doping Agency, and we also respect the process and the resulting penalty. Our team has undergone various in-competition tests this season with no adverse findings. As well, we are fully aware that as high-performance athletes, we are subject to random testing at any time. This is as it should be, because in no way, shape or form do we think that doping has a place in sports. We believe that this is an extremely isolated incident, and in no way should it be a reflection on our team or our sport." Dumontelle was added to Team Jacobs following its victory at the 2013 Northern Ontario championship. He did not participate in any games at the World Championship. Ryan Tannehill Youth Jersey . Hey!"

Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. http://www.titansstoreonline.com/Black-34-Earl-Campbell-Womens-Jersey/ .

Vancouver Whitecaps and Toronto FC failed to make the postseason while Montreal Impact fell at the first hurdle losing heavily to Houston Dynamo in the Eastern Conference Knockout Round. The pressure to spend money is finally off the shoulders of Arsene Wenger.The pressure to win the Premier League title, however, grows ever more.Armed with his two new signings, perhaps the faithful at The Emirates will at last be satisfied with the team heading into Saturdays contest versus Southampton.Over the past few seasons, Wenger has been assailed for failing to use all of Arsenals financial war chest to bolster his side, with cries of Wenger out! occasionally spilling forth in London. The Frenchman has been notoriously spendthrift at times, railing against the need to spend money for the sake of spending it and all but refusing to spend it on aging veterans.But Arsenal (1-1-1) again got off to a slow start, losing to Liverpool and drawing at reigning champions Leicester City while failing to address glaring holes in the central defence and on the attack. The fan base -- now in a seemingly constant state of unrest without a Premier League title since 2004 -- once more made their opinions known.Despite what appears to be a promising signing in midfielder Granit Xhaka earlier this summer, supporters wanted more. And they finally got them before the close of the transfer window as the team spent a reported £52 million in landing Shkrodan Mustafi to marshal the defence and Lucas Perez as another option going forward.The pair had been playing in La Liga for Valencia and Deportivo La Coruna. While the late press to sign the duo may have cost Arsenal a few more pounds, Wenger is confident both will make an immediate impact.He is the right age. He has good experience, Wenger told Arsenals website about the 24-year-old Mustafi, who helped Germany to the 2014 World Cup title. He is a very focused player who can play with the ball as well. We have taken a great player but have prepared well for the future.Nacho Monreal has already noticed Perezs pace at practice, something that makes the Spaniard different to the rest of the players in the squad, according to the defender. Perez scored 24 goals in 58 matches for Deportivo after being loaned out by Greek side PAOK.I think Im a pacy player, said Perez, who has the potential to form a dangerous attacking tandem with playmaker Mesut Ozil. I like to link up and combine with my teammates, playing one-twos to work a shot. I dont want to put myself in a box. I hope that Arsenal fans can see for themselves and enjoy watching me.The addittion of Perez made talented but oft-injured midfielder Jack Wilshire surplus to goods, and he transferred to Bournemouth.ddddddddddddSouthampton (0-2-1) have yet to give new manager Claude Puel -- a former player under Wenger at French side AS Monaco -- his first Premier League victory as they adjust to the Frenchmans midfield diamond.Despite holding a majority of possession in all three matches -- the Saints rank third in the Premier League in percentage -- they have only two goals to show for it thus far. Jay Rodriguezs late marker sent Southampton into the break on a positive note as they drew 1-1 with Sunderland on Aug. 27.Puel is hoping the addition of Lille winger and Morocco international Sofiane Bufal, signed for a club-record £16 million before last weeks transfer window close, will be able to partner with Shane Long and Charlie Austin to end the sides goal-scoring woes.He can make the difference, Puel told Southamptons YouTube channel of the 22-year old. He can beat two or three players in small spaces. This is important.We have a good collective, and he has good qualities at dribbling and he can score also and give assists.Puel is also excited to face his Wenger, who coached the Southampton gaffer for nearly half of his 17-year playing career at Monaco.Arsene was my trainer during seven years at Monaco and it will be a pleasure to see him on the other bench. He was a very important person for me and hes a great manager, Puel said. People dont sometimes realise how good his work with Arsenal has been, and I really think he is a good example for all the other trainers.Southampton took four of six points from the teams last season, flattening Arsenal 4-0 on Boxing Day at home before grinding out a scoreless draw at The Emirates. Despite not scoring in their last 315 minutes on the London grounds, the Saints are 2-2-1 in their last five league matches versus the Gunners and are confident they can get a result.Its a resilience that weve built up and thoroughly earned over the last couple of seasons, which has seen us go to the so-called big four clubs and get results, Ryan Bertrand said. Its a perfect opportunity for us. Weve dropped a few points, but this is a great chance to go and win against a big team and get our season up and running.
