Post n his career against the As. Hudson spent the
The Kenyan athletes representative Noah Ngeny has quit after becoming frustrated with the countrys doping crisis. The former 1500m Olympic Champion has said the countrys sporting authorities were not doing enough to combat the problem ahead of the April 5 deadline.Having already missed one WADA (World Anti Doping Agency) deadline, Kenya may face expulsion from the Rio Olympics this summer if they fail to successfully prove they can tackle the doping issue. Kenya topped the 2015 World Cup Championships and are known for their dominance in endurance running, but more than 40 of its athletes have been banned for doping in the past three years. In addition, several senior officials have also been suspended for misusing funds among other allegations, although they deny any wrongdoing. IAAF President Sebastian Coe has said he is ready to ban Kenya from International athletics if they are deemed to be non-compliant with the WADA code Ngenys resignation comes just weeks after Athletics Kenya Chief Executive Isaac Mwangi was provisionally suspended by the Ethics Board of the sports world governing body after allegations of seeking bribes to reduce doping suspensions of two athletes.Athletics Kenya (AK) has ignored my advice to spend money in sensitising athletes on matters of doping. I find that unacceptable, he saidFormer AK President Isaiah Kiplagat, his former deputy David Okeyo, and former AK treasurer Joseph Kinyua have all been suspended by the IAAF Ethics Commission on charges of misusing funds from a sponsorship by sports manufacturer Nike. Isaac Mwangi says he has done nothing wrong amid accusations he was seeking bribes Ngeny, who retired from international athletics in 2006, also questioned why current AK President Jack Tuwei has not been formally confirmed after serving in the position for nearly a year.The best thing to do under such circumstances is call for elections to give officials a fresh mandate for running the federation, Ngeny saidTuwei was not available for comment.If they cannot make the deadline, Kenya will become the second country to be suspended after Russia were handed an indefinite ban from world athletics last November. John Starks Knicks Jersey . It took five games, but the Celtics finally helped Stevens earn his first NBA victory. "Im going to celebrate for a whole 12 minutes, and then Im going to start watching Orlando and trying to figure them out," the first-year Celtics coach said after Boston beat the Utah Jazz, one of the leagues other winless teams, 97-87 on Wednesday night. Allan Houston Jersey . The underachieving franchise finished 17th in the 19-team league with a 6-17-11 record this season. "Our soccer team is absolutely in complete disarray," said Leiweke, drawing laughs during an Empire Club luncheon speech about the future of MLSE teams and plans to improve them. http://www.nbaknicksauthority.com/krist ... rsey-c-20/. Klose has a bruised pelvic bone and abdominal muscle problems but team doctors are trying to get him fit in time for the match. Bender has a hamstring injury. Germany is already without half-dozen players, due to injury or bad form. Tracy McGrady Knicks Jersey . -- When the Los Angeles Kings are on top of their formidable defensive game, they revel in the silence they can create in a frustrated road arena. Joakim Noah Knicks Jersey . The same cant be said of last Saturdays 2-2 draw at Olympic Stadium against a very weakened New York Red Bulls side and one which had three stalwarts in Henry, Cahill and Olave back home in Harrison, NJ.SAN FRANCISCO -- All-Star Scott Kazmir capped the best first-half of his career with one of his best starts yet. Kazmir struck out nine in seven scoreless innings to help the Oakland Athletics win the annual Bay Bridge series by beating the San Francisco Giants 6-1 on Thursday. "I felt good from pitch one," Kazmir said. "I felt comfortable. I was able to get some quick outs and use all of my pitches." Josh Donaldson hit a two-run homer and Stephen Vogt drove in three runs for the As, who won three of four in the two-city series that began Monday night in Oakland. The As (58-34) have won seven of eight overall and have matched the best start in Oakland history. Tim Hudson (7-6) was unable to make it out of the sixth inning and lost his fourth straight decision for the floundering Giants. San Francisco has lost 15 of its past 19 home games and hasnt won consecutive games here in more than a month. "Were not playing nearly the kind of baseball we want to play, for sure," Hudson said. "We just have to improve in a number of different areas." The game ended on a replay review when As manager Bob Melvin challenged a call that Vogt pulled his foot off first base on an infield hit by Gregor Blanco. The replay showed Vogt kept his foot on the bag, leading to the final out. Kazmir (11-3) got the best of a heralded matchup against Hudson, allowing three hits and one walk. Kazmir has allowed one run or fewer in 11 of 19 starts this season for a 2.38 ERA. He is just two wins shy of matching his career best set in 2007 in Tampa Bay. "The way he moves feet and moves eyes and dots up the corners and gets people to chase pitches is really remarkable," Vogt said. "Hes doing such a great job." Kazmir retired the first eight batters before walking Hudson and didnt allow a hit until Michael Morses leadoff single to centre in the fifth. Kazmir struck out Brandon Belt and Brandon Hicks before Blanco doubled Morse to third base to snap a 19 at-bat hitless streak. Hudson then hit a drive to deep left-centre that Craiig Gentry ran down on the warning track for an inning-ending catch.dddddddddddd The As broke the game open in the top of the sixth when they put together four straight extra-base hits to open the inning against Hudson, including a two-run homer by Donaldson over the right-field wall. Donaldsons 20th homer came the same day he was picked to participate in the Home Run Derby at the All-Star game next week. "Its definitely pretty neat," he said. "It will be one of those things that adds icing to the cake. Hopefully Ill be able to put on a show." Vogt added a two-run single off Javier Lopez to give the As a 6-0 lead. Vogt also drove in a run earlier when he singled in the fifth following John Jasos two-out triple to make it 2-0. This marked the first time Hudson allowed four straight extra-base hits, according to STATS LLC. "That sixth inning got away from me a little bit, a couple bad pitches that they took advantage of," Hudson said. "They hit a couple decent pitches, I thought. It was a little bit of a weird inning. It kind of unraveled on us a little bit." Hudson allowed six runs and nine hits in 5 1-3 innings and lost for the second time in his career against the As. Hudson spent the first six years of his career in Oakland and has beaten every team in the majors except the As and Atlanta. The Giants finally got on the board in the eighth when Pablo Sandoval hit an RBI single off Dan Otero. NOTES: As All-Star OF Yoenis Cespedes went 0 for 5 with four Ks and hit into a double play. ... Home plate umpire Adrian Johnson left the game before the top of the fourth after being hit in the mask by a foul ball in the first inning. Crew chief Angel Hernandez moved from second base to behind the plate and the game finished with three umpires. ... Tim Lincecum (8-5) goes for his fourth straight win Friday when the Giants open a three-game series against Arizona. ... Jeff Samardzija (1-0) will make his second start for Oakland when the As open a three-game series in Seattle against Felix Hernandez (10-2).
