    RIO DE JANEIRO -- Australian cyclist Melissa Hoskins was released from the hospital hours after a terrifying crash in training Monday, and she still hopes to compete in the team pursuit competition later this week. Denis Potvin Jersey .The team of Hoskins, Ashlee Ankudinoff, Georgia Baker, Amy Cure and Annette Edmondson were at race speed of nearly 60 kph (37 mph) when they clipped wheels at the end of the back straight. Edmondson stayed on her bike as the other riders fell hard behind her on the banked wooden surface.Hoskins was put in a back brace as a precaution and taken to a Rio de Janeiro hospital for an examination. Tests revealed no broken bones and she was released several hours later.I remember the whole thing. I had nowhere to go, straight over the handlebars and landed heavily on my side, she said. For those watching, it would have been spectacular. We certainly werent on a Sunday stroll. We were doing high-speed pace efforts.Ankudinoff, Baker and Cure walked off the track and were treated for bruises and floor burns, and Edmondson tweeted: Everyone is OK! Bruised, battered but OK with a thumbs-up emoticon.The team pursuit competition begins with qualifying Thursday.The women are all in reasonable spirits considering they touched the deck, Australia coach Kevin Tabotta said. I am not going to lie, no one wants to see that happen. It is not something we plan for, but we do plan to respond to these sorts of things.Each pursuit squad has five riders but only four compete in a race. So even if Hoskins is unable to go during qualifying, the Australian team should still be at the start line.I am staying positive. After four years of hard work, you dont want to give up when you are this close, she said. Luckily we have four girls who are firing and will fly the flag if I cant.Hoskins helped Australia win the team pursuit at the world championships last year, and along with Edmondson was part of the squad that was fourth at the London Olympics. But both of them have had a tough year, Hoskins dealing with pneumonia and Edmondson getting hit by a car.Their crash in practice was hardly the first of the Olympic cycling program.During the mens road race Saturday, several riders hit the deck on the descent of the Vista Chinesa climb. Vincenzo Nibali was left with a broken collarbone, Sergio Henao a fractured pelvis and Australian rider Richie Porte with a broken scapula.Dutch rider Annemiek van Vleuten crashed from the lead on the same descent in the womens race Sunday, sending her to the hospital with a concussion and three fractures of her spine. She was still in the hospital Monday while awaiting the results of more tests.Some riders who practiced on the $56 million Olympic velodrome this week have complained of the wood surface, which was delayed several times during installation and only recently opened.At first it looks very fast, but now I think it is not very fast at all, German sprinter Rene Enders said. After training on it, the boards have a lot of grip, and the wood is soft. Its a difficult track to race on because the wood is new and a little bit damp. It will get faster, in a few years, but not during these Games. Its OK because it is the same for everybody.The Australian team has been practicing on a similar track in Los Angeles, and arrived in Rio confident their pursuit squad could challenge the favored Americans and British for gold.Those aspirations didnt change even after their harrowing crash.As a team, they were on the best training form since they won the world title in 2015, Tabotta said. Sure, this has put a spanner in the works now, but they have had some great preparation and we are not looking backward. We are only looking forward. Mathew Barzal Jersey . Bryzgalov stopped 25 shots on Saturday in the Oklahoma City Barons 4-1 victory over the Abbotsford Heat. The Oilers signed Bryzgalov to a one-year $2 million contract last Friday after shedding payroll by dealing defenceman Ladislav Smid to the Flames. Calvin de Haan Jersey . The Oilers come in having lost five in a row (0-4-1) and 16 of their last 20 games, dropping a 2-1 decision to the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. . Tuesdays surgery at Atlantas Piedmont Hospital was performed by Dr. Xavier Duralde and Hawks team physician Dr. Michael Bernot. OKLAHOMA CITY -- After starting the season with a 6-1 record, the Oklahoma City Thunder were being looked at as the surprise team in the NBA. A week later, the Thunder are in a tailspin, riding a four-game losing streak.That is the situation that awaits the Thunder (6-5) when they play host to the Houston Rockets (6-4) on Wednesday night at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.The latest loss came Monday night when Thunder traveled to Detroit on the second night of a back-to-back. Near the end of the first quarter and the start of the second, Oklahoma City allowed the Pistons to go on a 23-6 run. It was an uphill battle from that point on, and Detroit emerged with a 104-88 victory.Defensively we started with really good energy, Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. In fairness to our guys, you can always expect on a back-to-back that youre going to be a bit leg weary. Generally thats going to affect your offense. Sometimes on back-to-backs you cant put stock or onus on having a great offensive output, but you have to hang your hat on your defense.Oklahoma Citys defense is getting precipitately worse, but it hasnt just been against teams such as the Golden State Warriors or Los Angeles Clippers.The Thunders last two defeats came at the hands of the Orlando Magic and Detroit, clubs that rank in the bottom seven in the NBA in scoring. Each team managed to score over a 100 against the Thunder.Were one of the top teams in the league when we play defensively, Thunder guard Russell Westbrook told The Oklahoman. So Im not really worried about whos playing and whos not.Having issues with defense, however, is not a good problem to have with the Rockets in town. Houston is 10th in the league in scoring at 107.8 points per game and fifth in 3-point shooting at 37 percent.Houston has noot had a problem putting up points this season. New York Islanders Gear. The Rockets are coming off a 115-88 plastering of the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday.I thought they came out with the right intensity, they came out the way they should have, Rockets coach Mike DAntoni said. We talked about it and came out in the second half the way we should have. That way we got some good rest. I saw a lot of good things.The Rockets might get even stronger Wednesday with the possible return of guard Patrick Beverley, who has been out since the preseason after undergoing left knee surgery.Beverley and the Thunder have a history that goes back to when he crashed into Westbrooks knee during the 2013 postseason. Westbrook ended up with a torn meniscus that cost him the rest of the postseason. Thunder fans catapulted Beverley to the top of their most hated list, which he has held onto since then.Against the 76ers, Rockets guard James Harden posted 33 points, seven rebounds and nine assists. He is now one of only three players in history to average at least 30 points and 10 assists through 10 games. Harden was also named Western Conference Player of the Week.However, Harden seems to be more focused on making sure his team plays the right way.Were getting better game by game, and defensively were getting better and offensively has been better, too, Harden told We take it one game at a time. These next three games will be extremely tough; well be all right as long as we continue to do the things weve been working on.Asked his assessment of the Thunder in the wake of Kevin Durant exit in free agency, Harden said, Its Russ. Its Russ, and its a one-man show. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2018Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys From China Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Hoodies Wholesale Authentic Jerseys ' ' '
