oatias Tonci Stipanovic at his own game.Burton went into the Laser medals race needing to finish five places ahead of fleet lead Antworten

From Rios Flamengo Beach, where his family and supporters watched hundreds of metres away among the flags and umbrellas, the gold medal winning move was a speck in the distance.Out on Guanabara Bay, Tom Burton had just out-smarted and out-sailed Croatias Tonci Stipanovic at his own game.Burton went into the Laser medals race needing to finish five places ahead of fleet leader Stipanovic to clinch the gold.After 10 preliminary races over the past week, he had enough points to guarantee himself a bronze and was likely to win silver.But he wanted gold, even if he rated his chances one out of 10.Stipanovic made it clear at the pre-start he was planning to remove Burton as a challenge and attacked the Australian as they jockeyed for position.Burton wasnt going to engage initially, but saw his opportunity, nicked inside the Croatian and forced him to touch boats.The ensuing penalty left the leader a long way off the back of the fleet as they crossed the start line.Burton was second last but in touch with the rest of the fleet and suddenly one in 10 became a possibility.It couldnt have come off any better, it was perfection, nearly, Burton said.The percentage chance I could pull it of was pretty slim.For the one move that I needed to come off, to come off, was critical to the race.Match race sailing in a single handed boat has been likened to playing chess while running a marathon.Mind and body are working full tilt.Burton was counting off boats and looking back to check on Stipanovic, while his thighs were burning as he leant out the boat, then ducked back in, shifted sides and worked the sail.All this while looking out for wind shifts, waves and the rest of the fleet as his heart rate reached levels similar to a cyclist on a hill climb.At the first of four marks, he was still second last but half a minute clear of Stipanovic and only 12 seconds from fourth.One by one he ticked off the boats he needed to pass as Stipanovic drifted further behind in ninth place in his desperation to try different, but ultimately wrong, angles to make up ground.Right before the bottom mark, I knew I was four ahead of him, Burton said.One leg to go, one boat to pass.He passed two, just to make sure of it.I could sense it, but I didnt want to look, he said of the last downwind leg.He ended up third, with Stipanovic languishing back in ninth ruing his decision to take on the Australian.

The Vikings announced Thursday that Priefer will be one of seven holdovers from the previous staff, along with offensive line coach Jeff Davidson, wide receivers coach George Stewart and others.

STANFORD, Calif. -- Even in November, Tara VanDerveer prepares her team for March by scheduling tough games and treating them like NCAA Tournament matchups.Crisp ball movement and balance carried Stanford.Brittany McPhee scored a career-high 28 points, Erica McCall added 17 points and six blocked shots, and No. 11 Stanford avenged a home loss against Texas from two years ago by beating the eighth-ranked Longhorns 71-59 on Monday night.McPhee shot 11 for 15 and had seven rebounds, while McCall had five boards and blocked five of her shots in the first half as Stanford (2-0) shot 54.9 percent to overcome 20 turnovers and spoil Texas season opener.Our team really focused. This was like an NCAA Tournament week. It was awesome, VanDerveer said. Im really proud of how people worked and Im really excited for the good things that we did and well go right back to work and get ready for Gonzaga and clean up some of those rebounds, some of those turnovers.VanDerveer, the Hall of Fame coach beginning her 31st season at the school and 38th as a college coach, moved 18 victories away from joining the late Pat Summitt as the only womens coaches to reach 1,000 career wins.After the Longhorns cut Stanfords lead to 52-47 on Joyner Holmes layin with 3:10 left in the third quarter, McCall quickly answered on the other end and Alanna Smith scored the next time down as the Cardinal capitalized on Atkins turnover.Smith, a sophomore from Australia, had her family in the stands visiting. Her father, Darren, was asked during one timeout what insight he had for the team -- and his response was a good one.Get Brittany McPhee the ball, he said, smiling.Brooke McCarty, the leading returning scorer for Texas after she averaged 11.8 points last season, had 20 points and Ariel Atkins had 14.It was an eye opener today, McCarty said. We kind of have to take that and roll with it. We just got outplayed and we got beat.A junior guard with 11 career starts over her first two college seasons, McPhee is taking on a bigger role for VanDerveers young team. And Texas, which beat Stanford the past two seasons, didnt have an answer for her accuracy.The Longhorns ended the Cardinals 28-game home winning streak with an 87-81 overtime win at Maples Pavilion on Nov.dddddddddddd 20, 2014, when Stanford was ranked sixth and Texas No. 10 -- the programs first win over a top-10 team in almost six years. It marked the first meeting when both teams were in the top-10.That year, Stanford couldnt make it two in a row after beating No. 1 Connecticut 88-86 in overtime three nights earlier to snap the Huskies 47-game winning streak.Then Texas won again last season in Austin, 77-69.Stanford was too much this time.When you get beat sometimes all you do is talk about what your team wasnt good at but I would say that midway through the second quarter they really broke our defense down, Texas coach Karen Aston said. Were young and a little bit immature and I thought that we started panicking a little bit. We missed some free throws and our confidence got rattled a little bit at the end of the first half and we werent able to recover from that.BIG PICTURETexas: The Longhorns held a 38-32 rebounding edge but were just 6 for 14 at the free throw line. They lost a season opener for the first time under fifth-year coach Aston (4-1). ... Aston coached her 300th career game. She is now 190-110 starting her 10th season as a college coach and 89-47 in her fifth season leading the Longhorns. ... Texas started the season on the road for only the second time in the past 13 years.Stanford: McCall was one off her career high in blocks. She had three blocks in a season-opening win against Cal Poly on Friday and now has nine through two games. I love blocked shots, she said. ... The Cardinal are 15-4 at home against top-10 teams over the last 10-plus seasons and 139-7 at Maples since 2007-08.UP NEXTTexas: The Longhorns host Houston Baptist on Wednesday morning in their home opener, an 11 a.m. local time tipoff for the programs annual 40 Acres Field Trip game for middle-school students from around Texas and a day that includes educational activities.Stanford: The Cardinal have another tough opponent Friday at home against West Coast Conference power Gonzaga, winner of 11 of the last 12 WCC regular-season titles and picked to do so again.
