Сообщение the second period while Zane Jones 
The British Olympic Association is confident that the most talented team it has taken to an away Games can create history at the Rio Olympics. BOA officials expect to send a team of just over 350 to Rio and are targeting a medal haul in excess of the 47 won in Beijing, which is currently the highest number won at an away Games.The build-up to the Games, 100 days away on Wednesday, may have been overshadowed by concerns over doping, the Zika virus and security, but the BOA is satisfied with Team GBs preparations and is focused on delivering medal success. It would be a huge ask for the British team to match the 65 medals won as host nation at the London 2012 Games but BOA chief executive Bill Sweeney welcomes the high expectations London created.London set the bar so high in terms of medals legacy but its been a good thing - the impact it had on the nation and the sports, said Sweeney, who revealed that the BOA had invested double the amount spent on Beijing preparations.There is a possibility for us to exceed the 47 medals overall in Beijing. It is a target for us.BOA chef de mission Mark England added: Its not only a big team but Im confident it is the most talented team weve taken away to a Games.Whether the British athletics team will face Russian counterparts in Rio remains to be seen, with the International Association of Athletics Federations Council meeting in Vienna on June 17 set to decide whether Russian athletes can compete. Jessica Ennis-Hill was heptathlon champion at London 2012 Russia was suspended by the IAAF in November after being accused of state sponsored doping in a report commissioned by the World Anti-Doping Agency.There is no higher profile topic than drugs going into the Games, said Sweeney. But we honestly dont know if it [the IAAF decision] will go one way or the other.It would be bad for the Games not to have a level playing field but on the other hand, you dont want to see a nations athletes banned.The BOA has appointed a head of security to co-ordinate security for British athletes in Rio.The safety of our athletes is our number one priority and we will work closely with the Foreign Office, said England. The assessment on threat and risk will dictate how many people go. Hope are high for Britains athletes this summer in Brazil While security is of paramount importance, there is also a strong focus on giving British athletes a potential edge on rivals with the preparation facilities that are in place.The Team GB pre-Games training camp in Belo Horizonte will enable track and field and swimming athletes to train together at the same base and the British School Performance Centre, situated close to the Olympic Park and the Athletes Village, will provide a training base in Rio at Games time.Olympic sport venues are spread across four zones - Barra, Deodoro, Maracana and Copacabana - with travel between the zones likely to be challenging.

Both of Padakins goals came in the second period while Zane Jones added a single in the first period for Calgary (13-6-4). Hitmen goaltender Chris Driedger finished with 30 saves for the shutout. Michel Therrien is keeping everyone guessing as to what lineup he will go with in Game 3 tonight against the Bruins. Following his teams optional morning skate, Therrien would only confirm that Rene Bourque, who missed practice yesterday with the flu, will play. Mike Weaver spent yesterday paired up with Douglas Murray instead of Francis Bouillon, indicating Murray could make his post-season debut tonight, which will give the Canadiens a little more size against a physical Bruins team. Up front, there are also question marks surrounding the potential forwards who will dress. Travis Moen missed the first round of the playoffs with a concussion and made his return in Game 1 of this series, but Therrien decided to go with Michael Bournival over Moen last Saturday, a move to bring more speed to the Canadiens line up. “Its nnever fun to sit out especially in the playoffs,” Moen said Tuesday morning.dddddddddddd. “You want to help your team win, but it was a decision and you have to live with it, hopefully I can play tonight.” With the absence of Bourque at practice yesterday, Ryan White was practicing as the centre on the fourth line. White has yet to play a game in the playoffs this year and will have to wait and see if his name gets called tonight. Even though the Canadiens have said that Brandon Prust is healthy, his play doesnt indicate it. At practice on Monday, Prust was no longer on his usual line and instead was skating extra forward alon side George Parros. Therrien refused to comment on the status of individual players, nut it is obvious Prust hasnt been himself since returning from an upper body injury. Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
