Biles sweeps all 4 events on way to 5th US Championship

first_img‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins LATEST STORIES Simone Biles competes on the vault at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships, Sunday, Aug. 19, 2018, in Boston. (AP Photo/Elise Amendola)BOSTON — Olympic champion Simone Biles easily won her fifth US women’s gymnastics title Sunday night, winning all four events as well as the all-around in a dominant performance that showcased the ever-widening chasm between Biles and the rest of her sport.The 21-year-old posted a two-day total of 119.850, more than six points ahead of reigning world champion Morgan Hurd and a full seven points clear of Riley McCusker. Biles’ margin of victory was greater than the gap between Hurd and 11th-place finisher Jordan Chiles.ADVERTISEMENT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Palace OKs total deployment ban on Kuwait OFWs Finally!

Biles also became the first woman since three-time Olympian Dominique Dawes in 1994 to wind up first on floor exercise, balance beam, vault and uneven bars.The only real challenge Biles faced on any event came from McCusker. A year removed from a hamstring injury that forced her to take herself out of consideration for the world championship team, McCusker put on a brilliant performance on uneven bars. She hugged coach Maggie Haney after sticking her dismount, but McCusker’s total of 29.300 was a tenth less than the 29.400 Biles posted on an event that used to be a weakness, or at least as close to a weakness as Biles gets.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’Otherwise it was Biles in a runaway.A year ago Biles was wrapping up a post-Olympic whirlwind in which she basked in the aftermath of her glorious run at the 2016 Olympics in which she brought home four gold medals, five overall and entered the “first-name” pantheon in gymnastics, a club that includes Nadia Comaneci and Mary Lou Retton. Gov’t in no rush to rescue animals in Taal View comments Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ Biles, however, is making a compelling case that she may be entering a class all her own. She didn’t get serious about a return until last fall, when she went back into training with new coaches in Laurent and Cecile Landi and not just returning to the form that made her one of the stars in Rio de Janeiro but pushing the boundaries of gymnastics.Two meets into her comeback, Biles appears well on her way. Her all-around score of 60.1 during the opening round on Friday was the highest since she and Aly Raisman both topped the 60-point barrier during the all-around finals in Brazil. And Biles did it despite stepping out of bounds twice during her powerful tumbling runs.Biles worried a bit about her endurance after cramming two meets in a span of three weeks. She wasn’t quite as sharp on Sunday as she was on Friday — scoring a bit lower on bars and beam — but it hardly mattered. She was so far ahead coming into the finals she needed do little more than stay upright to finish the night atop the podium.Biles will get a chance to add to her 14 world championship medals when she leads Team USA to Qatar in October. Hurd, McCusker and vault specialist Jordan Chiles figure to be on the plane too. Whoever earns the fifth spot will join a team that be heavily favored to continue its international supremacy.The Americans have won every major international team competition since the 2011 world championships, a run that started two years before Biles rose to prominence and one that figures to continue indefinitely with Biles doing things no gymnast has ever done.ADVERTISEMENT Peza offers relief to ecozone firms DepEd’s Taal challenge: 30K students displaced Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

‘Playing against Chelsea doesn’t sit right with me’ – John Terry on Villa move

first_img New Aston Villa signing John Terry John Terry has revealed he rejected more lucrative offers to remain in the Premier League in favour of joining Aston Villa – because he could face playing against his beloved Chelsea.The 36-year-old’s departure from Stamford Bridge, after 22 successful years at the club, was confirmed on Saturday as he left as a free agent.And confirmation of his move to Villa Park came soon after on Monday, as he penned a one-year contract with the Championship outfit.Terry won five Premier League titles and ten other major honours during his two decade-long career in London.And the former England international has revealed that he the prospect of facing his former long-time employers with a new top-flight team – such as confirmed suitors Swansea or West Brom – dissuaded him from staying in the Premier League.“Playing against Chelsea just doesn’t sit right with me, to be honest,” he said following the confirmation of his Midlands move.“Whether that’s different in a year’s time, I don’t know. The raw emotion of leaving the club after so long there just didn’t sit right with me.“I had a lot of big financial offers to play in the Premier League and still play at the top, but once I took that decision out of it – that I wasn’t playing in the Premier League – this was an easy one for me.“For a few weeks I switched off and a lot of managers gave me a lot of time and respect to make my decision and come to terms with it.“After 22 years at Chelsea it took a few weeks longer than I probably predicted. They were 22 fantastic and unbelievable years that I will never forget but I’m excited about this challenge here of getting us up.”The Swans and Baggies were not the only clubs hoping they would be the chosen destination for Terry’s next step.Harry Redknapp confirmed Villa’s cross-city rivals Birmingham offered the veteran defender terms, while other offers from much further afield were on the table.“It wasn’t a financial decision, if that was the case I certainly wouldn’t be here,” Terry added at his press conference.“I could have played in the Premier League – I had offers from other Premier League clubs, with a lot more money – or on other continents.“I’m here because the hunger and the ambition is the exact same as mine, and that’s to win this league and get back to the Premier League.” 1last_img read more
