    LONDON -- Two-time Olympic silver medalist Louis Smith was suspended for two months by the British gymnastics federation on Tuesday after appearing to mock Islam in a video. Wholesale NFL Jerseys China .An independent panel found that Smiths behavior was a breach of the standards of conduct.Smith and former British teammate Luke Carson appeared in a leaked video laughing and pretending to pray while shouting Allahu Akbar, Arabic for God is greatest.Smith apologized for the incident.Smith had been warned in June after a previous, unrelated case of misconduct. Following the latest breach, the disciplinary panel determined a cumulative penalty was appropriate and ordered a two-month period of suspension.Carson was handed a reprimand because he had no previous cases. The reprimand will remain on his record for two years, the federation said.Smith won silver medals in the pommel horse at the 2012 London Olympics and 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games. He won bronze in the pommel horse at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and a team bronze in London.Carson, who has competed for Northern Ireland at the Commonwealth Games and other international events, retired last year because of injuries.The two-month suspension wont have much impact on the 27-year-old Smith.

The next step is a better finish. Bae played bogey-free Friday on another gorgeous day at Riviera for a 5-under 66, giving him a one-shot lead over Aaron Baddeley and Robert Garrigus going into the weekend. .J. Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night. BOSTON -- Craig Kimbrel was supposed to spend Monday soaking in the All-Star festivities in San Diego.Instead, the Boston Red Sox closer will be in a hospital.Kimbrel will undergo surgery to repair a medial meniscus tear in his left knee and is expected to miss three to six weeks, the Red Sox announced Saturday. In his absence, Koji Uehara will be the Soxs primary closer, manager John Farrell said, with newly acquired reliever Brad Ziegler getting save opportunities when the 41-year-old Uehara is unavailable.Its the first time Ive been on the DL in my career, so its obviously frustrating, said Kimbrel, who has a 3.55 ERA and 17 saves in 34 appearances. Im kind of glad its nothing too serious. Its something that I feel like we can go in, get it scoped out, get it cleaned out.Theyre saying three to six weeks. Lets hope its more on the three-week side, if not a little faster than that.Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Aaron Sanchez was chosen Saturday to replace Kimbrel, a five-time All-Star selection, on the American League All-Star roster.Regardless, it was convenient the Red Sox were already looking for another late-inning reliever before Kimbrel got injured. Early Saturday morning, they acquired Ziegler from the Arizona Diamondbacks for a pair of Single-A players. The timing of the trade was coincidental, according to president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski, who said he had been talking to Arizona general manager Dave Stewart for several weeks.Ziegler, a 36-year-old right-hander with a submarine delivery, has a 2.82 ERA and 18 saves in 36 appearances for the Diamondbacks. Once Kimbrel is healthy, Ziegler figures to take over the tough-on-righties setup role vacated when Carson Smith was lost to Tommy John elbow surgery in May.I think I made a comment to our own people that itd be nice to get this done today because, with the Kimbrel situation, the timing would work out. But it really was just a coincidence -- a good coincidence to get him and bring him in here at this time, Dombrowski said.Zieglers an established big-league pitcher at the back end of the pen. Hes a different-look guy for us. Hes a guy that doesnt throw hard but is a ground-ball machine.Kimbrel said he took a step to ffield a ground ball in the outfield during batting practice Friday and heard a pop in his knee. Wholesale NFL Jerseys. . He went for an MRI exam that revealed the torn cartilage.Initially, the Red Sox medical staff held out hope that Kimbrel might be able to avoid surgery. Moreover, Kimbrel suggested he would be able to pitch through the pain.It was apparent to me in talking to Craig after [Friday nights] game and getting the medical information, this is not something you want to take a chance on, Dombrowski said. You dont want Craig Kimbrel to go out there and alter his delivery and be in a position where he hurts his knee more but also hurt his arm.Said Kimbrel: I felt like I could go out there and pitch and kind of go through the pain. What it is, its something that I wouldnt say is structural. Looking where we are in the season and what could come of it going out there and trying to pitch through it, it might change my mechanics or put more stress on my arm. Were just looking to take the safe route on this.Kimbrel is the second Red Sox pitcher this season to get injury while retrieving a ball in batting practice, a routine that he and many other pitchers use as a cardiovascular exercise. Left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez also injured his knee during a spring-training incident.Farrell said the team doesnt have any plans to alter their pitchers pregame routines,This is an anomaly, Farrell said. This is what our players go through normally, day-in, day-out, traditionally in the game. We cant put guys in bubbles. You get a little bit of a change in direction, and this is what happens. Unfortunately, in Craigs case were going to miss him for a little bit.Ziegler is scheduled to arrive at Fenway Park midway through Saturdays game and wont be activated until Sunday. Until then, right-hander Noe Ramirez was called up from Triple-A Pawtucket to take Kimbrels spot on the roster.The Red Sox also activated newly acquired utility man Michael Martinez and optioned rookie infielder Marco Hernandez to Triple-A. Martinez was obtained Friday from the Cleveland Indians for cash considerations. Cheap MLB Jerseys cheap jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping cheap nfl jerseys Cheap Jerseys USA China Jerseys Cheap NFL Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys For Sale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NBA Jerseys ' ' '
