Champion sporting teams often speak of a family-like bond that ties them together and helps them thrive.For Australias rugby sevens womens side, a little girl - their 13th woman at the Rio Olympics - has already made that the case.Sophie Beck is only three but part of the squad, in coach Tim Walshs eyes.In hard-tackling mother Nicole Becks words, the world champions are Sophies family.It really is; its her extended family, she said.She comes to training at least once a day, every day.The girls are all her aunties, and she loves it.While Beck remains one of the few Aussie sevens players from before Olympic admission in 2009 still involved, she never considered the birth of Sophie in 2012 would stop her making a tilt at Rio selection.Even serious complications with birth, which prevented her from running for seven more months, didnt douse her motivation.With the support of the ARUs sevens program, Beck, 28, returned to be a key member of the side which won Australia its first sevens world series this year - playing an important impact role off the bench.Nic is a fantastic mother and the way she has been able to juggle that and perform has been inspirational, and it adds another dimension to our team, Walsh said.Sophies pretty much one of the squad.And she doesnt just sit on the sidelines colouring in or playing with dolls.She loves to watch, and its amazing how much she actually takes in, Beck said.We go home and she wants to practice lineouts at home, and tackling.While former touch football representative Beck is lauded for her speed and game awareness by the coach, shes best known for her defence - becoming an internet sensation twice with rib-rattling hits.Last-ditch tackles on England winger Fiona Pocock (2010) and Ireland speedster Amee Leigh Murphy Crowe (February) highlighted the strength and tenacity of the womens game expected to stun new fans when the sport debuts in Rio.Sophie will be along for the ride for an early fourth birthday present, staying outside the Olympic village with Becks parents and partner Joel.

RENO, Nev. -- Leave it to Charles Barkley to capsulize the challenges he and others will face atop the Sierra this weekend trying to keep their golf balls in the fairway, away from the galleries and out of the water during the 27th annual American Century Celebrity Golf Championship at Lake Tahoe.Golf is fun, until you hit somebody in the head, said Barkley, the Hall of Fame basketball player whos a 6,000-to-1 long shot to win but still draws some of the biggest crowds at Edgewood-Tahoe Golf Course in Stateline.Two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry, NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers, singer Justin Timberlake and comedian Ray Romano are among the 90 athletes and entertainers who tee off Friday in the 54-hole tournament running through Sunday near the California border, about 60 miles south of Reno.Curry, who finished fourth three years ago in the tournament with a $600,000 purse, will be paired with his father, Dell, who played 16 years in the NBA, and fellow Golden State Warriors teammate Andre Iguodala. He said it will be special to be the tourneys first father-son duo.It will probably get really competitive between us two, which is how it always is, Steph Curry said Thursday.Tourney regulars and Hall of Famers Jerry Rice, Emmitt Smith and Marcus Allen are back, along with more than a dozen past and present quarterbacks, including University of Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, Carson Palmer, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Alex Smith, Doug Flutie, Jim McMahon, Joe Theismann and Steve Young. Others include former vice president Dan Quayle, NASCAR driver Brian Vickers, Larry the Cable Guy, former Saturday Night Live star Kevin Nealon and Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty.The Harrahs and Harveys Race & Sports Book across the street has made ex-pitcher and defending champ Mark Mulder the co-favorite with recently-retired tennis champ Mardy Fish at 3-1 odds, followed by ex-quarterback Mark RRypien (9-2), ex-Cy Young closer Eric Gagne (5-1) and Curry (6-1).ddddddddddddA month after losing the NBA championship to Cleveland, Curry said he feels good about his golf game but confided he has much less confidence on the greens than I do on the court.Everybody asks if putting is like shooting free throws, he said after Thursdays pro-am. It has a very similar kind of mindset. And its just you, the ball and the target.But theres a lot more variables in golf, Curry said. The biggest thing is just routine. I think thats the biggest correlation between golfers and basketball players.Barkley said he tries to help newcomers understand its quite different than playing a round at their local country club.It aint like regular golf, because there are people everywhere, he said during a recent conference call promoting the event. And like I say, most of the guys will tell you theyre pretty good until they hit somebody. And then they get really nervous, because nobody wants to hit anybody.This year marks the 10th anniversary of one of the most infamous shots at the tourney where yachts and speed boats anchor along Tahoes south shore next to the par-3 17th and par-5 finishing hole.Actor Matthew Settles slicing 5-iron on the 169-yard 17th broke a boat windshield in July 2006 -- a shot playing partner John OHurley called a flaming whoopsie.Ive seen broken windows on golf courses before but never on a boat, OHurley said.It wasnt that strange to former NBA star Chris Webber, who once won a $50,000 charity bet with Barkley on who would finish last.I hit somebody in a boat a couple of years ago and they threw the ball back out like it was a home run at a baseball game, Webber said at the time.Barkley said, I just hit people, I dont hit boats.
