    导出博客文章Olympic champion walker Jared Tallent has awarded himself a gold medal in a mock
    ceremony in the wake of reports that dozens of athletes failed retrospective
    drug tests from the 2008 Beijing Games. The Australian was confirmed as the 2012
    London Games 50km walk gold medallist in March after Russian Sergei Kirdyapkin
    was stripped of the title for doping following a Court of Arbitration for Sport
    (CAS) ruling.Tallent will be awarded the medal at a ceremony in Melbourne next
    month but put in some practice with a couple of friends in a video posted
    online. In it, Tallent walks through what appears to be a back yard and stands
    on a step as a voice behind the camera announces him as the winner, from
    Australia - Jared Tallent.Tallent, who has been training in Italy, stands up on
    the mock podium and waves in traditional Olympic style before a man comes
    forward to shake his hand and put a medal around his neck.The 31-year-old also
    took the 50km silver at the 2008 Beijing Games behind Italys Alex Schwazer, who
    recently completed a three-year ban for doping after failing a drug test before
    the London Games. Tallent will receive his real gold in Melbourne The
    International Olympic Committee said last week that 31 athletes had failed drug
    tests from the 2008 Games after samples were re-examined.Fourteen of the 31 were
    Russian athletes, the countrys national Olympic committee said on
    Tuesday.Russian media named the athletes, one of whom competed against Tallent
    at the 2011 world championships in Daegu, where the Australian won the bronze
    medal.Following the Russian media reports, a photo of Tallent was posted on
    social media showing the Australian crossing out the names of the two Russian
    race walkers who beat him at Daegu.The winner, Sergey Bakulin, was banned for
    doping last year by Russian authorities and had his Daegu result disqualified by
    CAS in its March ruling. The runner-up was Denis Nizhegorodov, who won the 50km
    bronze at Beijing. Also See: GBs Beijing haul may swell Marshall makes Rio

    . Perhaps Carroll was so prepared for a break because he believes there is very
    little the Seattle Seahawks need heading into the off-season. "I dont see

    . As he recorded his 23rd and 24th points of the evening, a
    segment of the sellout Air Canada Centre crowd expressed their appreciation for
    the Raptors point guard with a smattering of MVP chants. TORRANCE, Calif. -- The
    history of mixed martial arts is written in the scars on Dan Hendersons rugged
    face and in the swollen creases of his cauliflower ears.The 46-year-old former
    Olympic wrestler has been fighting in a cage professionally for nearly two
    decades. He has spent almost every month of his adult life in a perpetual state
    of recovery, nursing a training injury or a physical breakdown. These days, hes
    usually just battling the cumulative weariness of a lengthy athletic career
    entering early middle age.I dont even notice anymore, he said before a recent
    workout in his native Southern California. Happens every training camp. I get
    cuts and bruises. Its part of the job.Henderson is tired of getting hit in the
    face, and he longs for a life without daily cardiovascular training. He plans to
    retire after one last bout this weekend in Manchester, England, and he is
    determined to finish his fighting life on his feet -- with a belt around his
    waist.Over 16 years and 42 fights after Henderson participated in a four-man,
    one-night tournament at UFC 17, he will meet middleweight champion Michael
    Bisping in the main event of UFC 204.Henderson (32-14) relishes the chance to
    finish his lifelong climb at the summit of his sport. He has held titles in the
    Strikeforce and Pride promotions, but he never claimed a UFC belt, losing
    back-to-back title fights nine years ago.Ive had title shots before, and I know
    that for whatever reason, I didnt do well in them, Henderson said. Especially
    the UFC title shots that Ive had. Yeah, I want to make sure that I make the most
    of this opportunity.Henderson has lost six of his last nine fights, and he is
    only getting this title shot at the insistence of the UFC and Bisping, who wants
    revenge.At UFC 100 in 2009, Henderson knocked Bisping out cold with an
    astonishing overhand right to the jaw. Henderson punctuated one of the most
    spectacular knockouts in MMA history with a flying elbow to Bispings defenseless
    head as he fell.Henderson wont apologize for taking the spot of a more deserving
    contender against the 37-year-old Bisping (29-7), who claimed the title in
    siimilarly stunning fashion this summer by knocking out Luke
    Rockhold.ddddddddddddObviously, its the last goal Ive set for myself in the
    sport, Henderson said. Its definitely going to rank right up there with
    everything Ive done.Bisping has called Henderson a cheat for his past use of
    testosterone replacement therapy. A loophole in UFC regulations allowed fighters
    to legally compete on steroids, but Henderson dropped his TRT use when the
    practice was outlawed.Henderson said he plans to return to TRT use after his
    fighting career ends, saying his body felt a little better back then. Obviously
    Im still able to compete without it, though.He could have walked into that
    future in June after his stoppage victory over Hector Lombard at UFC 199 in
    Inglewood, his wife and four children in attendance. His UFC contract was up,
    and he owns a thriving gym in Temecula, where 300 of his closest friends and
    family are waiting to hold their annual Labor Day pig roast until after his
    title shot.But Henderson is fighting on. He wants one more shot to land one of
    his heavy right hands, dubbed the H-Bomb by his fans many years ago.Every day, I
    try to learn things and improve, Henderson said. Over the years, I wouldnt have
    been able to compete at the level Ive competed on if I hadnt improved, because
    this sport has evolved, and its still evolving. Everybody is getting better
    every year.So Henderson has vowed this will be his last fight -- but even he
    knows fighters cant be trusted to stick to these declarations.His children wont
    make the trip to England because of school, and he would hate to end his career
    without them. He has also said he would definitely consider fighting again,
    particularly as the UFC champion, when he knows his body would keep going for
    another half-decade.He needs only one more brilliant performance to take this
    two-decade career to a new pinnacle.I guess everybody has a price, you know, he
    said. If they really had to have me back, I suppose they could make me smile. '
