#1 weeks ago, his first since retiring af von lebaobei123 29.03.2019 10:12

Next up for Michael Phelps comeback: Two events that produced Olympic gold. Phelps has entered the 100-meter butterfly and the 200 freestyle at the Charlotte Grand Prix meet in North Carolina next week, his coach, Bob Bowman, told The Associated Press on Monday night. With both events on May 16, Bowman can stick to the plan of building up Phelps endurance while staying away, at least for now, from the grueling, multi-day programs that were once the norm for Phelps. There will be morning preliminaries and evening finals, though the coach said hes not yet certain Phelps will actually compete in both races. Phelps returned to competitive swimming at a meet in Arizona less than two weeks ago, his first since retiring after the 2012 London Games as the most decorated athlete in Olympic history. He is the three-time defending Olympic champion in the 100 fly, so its obvious that race would be part of any plans to compete at the Rio Games. He won the 200 free at the 2008 Beijing Games -- during his record eight-gold performance -- but dropped the event in London. Phelps also competed in two events at the Mesa Grand Prix, finishing second to longtime rival Ryan Lochte in the 100 fly and matching the fourth-fastest time in the world this year. The other event, the 50 freestyle, wasnt nearly as serious. That race has never been part of Phelps program at a major meet, and he even used his preliminary heat to work on his butterfly stroke. Not surprisingly, he finished 42nd overall against swimmers who were using the much faster freestyle. Still, it was a good starting point for what the Phelps camp is describing as a low-key comeback. "We were encouraged by his performances in Mesa and look forward to trying a 200 in Charlotte," Bowman said in a text message. Phelps has also put his name in for the final Grand Prix meet of the season in Santa Clara, California, next month, though he is taking the comeback one step at a time and not committing to any long-term goals. Still, its clear he wouldnt be putting in the work if the 2016 Olympics were not his primary focus. Phelps has already competed in four Summer Games, winning 18 golds and 22 medals overall. The Grand Prix schedule provides tuneups for the U.S. national championships in August, where spots will be earned for the Pan Pacific Championships later that month and next years world championships in Kazan, Russia -- an important steppingstone for the Olympics. After the Charlotte meet, Phelps will head to Colorado for high-altitude training beginning May 27. Cheap Air Jordan 1 Wholesale . -- Theres nothing like winning to bring hope for a struggling team.

Canizares mastered the windy conditions at the Golf du Palais Royal course in Agadir for the lowest round of his European Tour career, and it would have been even better if not for a bogey on the third hole. "It was one of those days for me, my swing felt great, I started putting well and the putts went in. It was a lot of fun, when golf is like this its easy," Canizares said. "I missed a couple of drives and from the fairway I missed one shot that cost me a bogey, but that was about it." Benson, who was named after the late Seve Ballesteros, had nine birdies to stayy two shots clear of American golfer Connor Ardenell and Swedens Magnus Carlsson, who were tied at 7 under.dddddddddddd "It was so windy out there on the back nine, but I just managed to play the tough holes well and sink some putts," Benson said. "Capitalizing on my chances is the big thing for me. I have been working really hard with my putting coach and it paid off today." Arendell finished eighth at Qualifying School in November to earn his card for this season, but missed the cut in his first four events. "Its huge, coming over here getting that experience, the travelling; week to week the courses vary quite a bit compared to the U.S.," Arendell said. "Its tough, but over time it will make it that much easier when Im in the U.S." ' ' '
