British track sprinter Jess Varnish will not appeal against her non-selection for the Rio Olympics, saying it would be a pointless process that is stacked in favour of British Cyclings selectors. Puma Basket Heart Patent .Varnish was controversially dropped from the Olympic programme in April, shortly after she and Katy Marchant failed to qualify for this summers Games in the womens team sprint at the World Championships in March.In the aftermath of that disappointment, the 25-year-old from Bromsgrove was highly critical of British Cyclings selections over the two-year qualifying period, and, when her contract was not renewed a month later, she voiced further criticisms of the programme that ultimately resulted in technical director Shane Suttons resignation.British Cycling confirmed its 26-strong team for Rio last week, with a mountain biker still to be added, and said disappointed riders who were not receiving funding would be allowed to go through the same appeals process as funded riders.This was clearly an olive branch to the likes of Varnish but one she has rejected.Ive shared this procedure with a legal expert and the British Athletes Commission, and Im sad to report that it isnt new, said Varnish. Nothing has changed to the other appeals procedures Ive been through.It is heavily weighted in favour of British Cycling, puts significant financial risk on the athlete and ultimately comes down to selectors discretion.Its pretty plain to see that selectors discretion would not be in my favour and appealing would be a pointless process.Its sad that an organisation that once prided itself on fact and data, now picks and chooses riders on discretion - I know Im not the only rider to feel like this.

The lawyers filed a 33-page amended complaint Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan, expanding on the suit originally filed Oct. 3 in New York Supreme Court. Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz last week refused to compel Selig to testify in the grievance, and Rodriguez then walked out of the hearing without testifying. http://www.rihannacreepersdk.com/ . -- Ohio States Urban Meyer has never had any issue acclimating to the biggest stages in college football. TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Lightning are not exactly limping home following a successful five-game road trip.But that doesnt mean they dont have wounds to heal before hosting a Philadelphia Flyers team arriving at Amalie Arena with some injuries of their own.Tampa Bay returns home after collecting eight of 10 points on the road, but the Lightning lost captain Steven Stamkos for four months to a knee injury along the way. Tampa Bay is also missing top defenseman Anton Stralman, who has missed five games with an undisclosed upper-body injury suffered on Nov. 12 against San Jose.Though Jonathan Drouin returned to the lineup, the effects of those missing and those playing through injuries -- Brian Boyle and Valtteri Filppula have also missed games -- is taking a toll that was evident in a loss to Nashville on Monday.We just looked like a tired group, Lightning head coach Jon Cooper said. That was a winnable hockey game for us, and we let it slip. We have to regroup for Wednesday.Boyle said the lack of the right energy was noticeable.We had the speed that we normally would play with, but were not working hard enough, he said. Thats on us. We have to be way better. Its an easy game if a team isnt pressuring you, not being on top of you, not hitting you. We just werent skating ourselves into position.Though Stralmans status has remained day-to-day, he skated with the team for the first time during Mondays morning skate, although he was wearing a designated no-contact red jersey.One player the Flyers know they will be missing iis center Sean Couturier, who left Tuesdays 3-1 victory at Florida following a collision with Vincent Trocheck in the second period. Puma By Rihanna Danmark. Couturier had to be helped off the ice and was unable to put any weight on his left leg.The team reported that Couturier was being sent back to Philadelphia for further evaluation and is ruled out for Wednesdays game against Tampa Bay. Both the Philadelphia Inquirer and CSN Philadelphia reported the injury was a knee strain and the evaluation was to determine if surgery was required.It looked like (Couturier) got tangled up. I heard him yelling there, Mason told the Inquirer. He was obviously in some pain.Mason, meanwhile, earned first star honors for the victory at Florida, making 38 saves in his fourth consecutive start, which included Saturdays loss to the Lightning in Philadelphia. With backup Michal Nuervirth out of the lineup and rookie Anthony Stolarz yet to make his NHL debut, Masons performance on Tuesday could land him another start despite playing on consecutive nights.He was the best player on the ice, winger Dale Weise, who scored his first goal in 16 games, told the Inquirer of Mason.But Mason deferred any credit directed his way.It was a real strong game from the whole team, he said. Im going to point to the guys out front. They did a great job of moving bodies and giving me a good lane to the point shots and the shots from the outside.
