Rugby is returning to the Olympics for the first time in 92 years, bringing the ruck, the maul and the hooker back into the lexicon of the Summer Games. Jordan 5 For Sale Cheap .The format has changed, considerably, since the United States won the last rugby union Olympic gold medal in 1924. The abbreviated seven-player version was favored for Rio over the traditional 15-a-side game, and Fiji is favored for a breakthrough triumph. The aim remains the same: score more tries -- grounding the ball in the opponents in-goal area -- and youre a good chance of winning.Its fast and physical, with more emphasis on speed and passing the ball (always backward) than heavy contact.Heres some things to watch in Rio, where the womens tournament runs Aug. 6-8 and the mens from Aug. 9-11 at the Deodoro Stadium:FLYING FIJIANSFiji has never won an Olympic medal, but it has never had a chance to play its national sport at the Summer Games. The world series champions are favorites in the mens competition, and expectations are high in the Pacific.Englishman Ben Ryan took a squad containing an abundance of players with size, speed and natural flair for rugby sevens, and added extra discipline to every facet of the preparation from diet to drills. The result is a still entertaining, but more consistent Fiji team.Its the national sport, so our best athletes play rugby, Ryan says. We have been successful at it and thats also created this aura around the team, the way we play, totally different to every other side in the world. Its a risky, entertaining, exciting, slightly laid back -- sometimes -- way of playing the game. And we are doing it to a very high level.GO BROSonny Bill Williams is a high-profile game hopper who will feature for New Zealand in Rio, another notch in a career that has involved switching back and forth from rugby league to rugby union to win some of the biggest prizes in those sports. Already a World Cup winner with the famous All Blacks, Williams wants to add Olympic gold. He wont have to look far for family support, with his sister, Niall, selected in the title-chasing New Zealand womens team.POINT PROVEDThe sevens format has surged in popularity since its inclusion on the Olympic program, and the rewards are being spread more widely than ever. Countries such as Kenya and the United States have won stops on the world series circuit, and are ranked 6th and 7th behind southern hemisphere powers Fiji, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and Argentina. American Madison Hughes led the world series with 331 points in the 2015-16 season. American speedster Perry Baker was second behind South Africas Seabelo Senatla for most tries scored and most line breaks.WOMENS DRAWAustralia won the womens world series, reaching the final in four of the five tournaments to outpoint second place New Zealand, the dominant team in 2014-15. Canada and England were equal on points in third place.The womens squads in Rio will feature players lured from sports such as basketball, volleyball and track and field. As it catches on, therell be more professionals, and increased competition.New Zealand had been the benchmark ... ever since I had started playing rugby. Everything we trained for and played for can subconsciously be aimed around beating them, Australias Alicia Quirk said. But this series turned out to be the most competitive season yet -- the gap between teams has definitely closed.SPANISH ACQUISITIONSpain was the last of 12 teams to qualify in each of the mens and womens tournaments. The Spanish men had a stunning upset win over world series regulars Samoa in the last-ditch repechage, a victory which playmaker Patricia Garcia said inspired her womens team to its victory over Russia in Dublin the following week.USEFUL TERMSRuck, maul, scrum -- all physical contests for the ball. Hooker, prop, wing -- all playing positions.FORMATEach competition will feature 12 teams divided into three pools, with the top eight advancing to the quarterfinals.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Paul Menard has one other goal in addition to winning Sunday in the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.He needs to get a photo of the yard of bricks.Menard wants to build a yard of bricks at his home and wants to have it just like the bricks at the finish line of the famed racetrack.Theres a reason Menard has so much love for the track, as his family used to field cars in the Indianapolis 500.Menard remembers how he could get close to his family teams cars as a kid, even though at the time minors werent allowed in the garage. All he needed was to wait until the time teams started doing motor changes.We had these flatbed golf carts to run from where the haulers park into the garage and put the motors on in a plastic crate, Menard said. Every once in a while theyd stick me on a golf cart and put a crate over me and sneak me in the garage, shut the [garage] door and Id crawl out.Not everyone has as good a sneak-into-the-garage story as Menard. He doesnt need to sneak in anymore. He has visited Victory Lane once, as he captured the 2011 Brickyard 400 for his only career Sprint Cup win.After you win the race, you get in the pace car and drive around the track, Menard said. You wave to everybody. I rode around with my dad and Richard [Childress]. Wholesale Air Jordan 5. hat was my biggest takeaway. We were BSing the whole way around, looking at everything, trying to take it all in.Menard would love to race the Indianapolis 500 but feels that time is not on his side.I would love to, but I just dont see it happening, Menard said. Im 35 years old and its hard to teach an old dog new tricks.I drove an IndyCar [about 15 years ago], and it was a really cool experience but its just a lot different. You cant hustle the cars on an oval. These cars, youre driving so hard every lap.Thats what hell remember about racing at the Brickyard. And hell just remember the times of finding a way to get into the garage and sneaking in and out of various gates. Its such a part of his childhood, its why getting that replicated yard of bricks just right is so important.Its the best race track in the world from history just to what it means to American motorsports and world motorsports, Menard said. Its a special place for a lot of people, myself included. And we have a win there, something that Ill always have. When Im long done racing, it will still be there. ' ' '
