MOSCOW -- Russia has appealed a ban of its athletics team from next months Olympics in Rio de Janeiro over doping, the countrys Olympic committee said Sunday. Gregor Blanco Jersey .Russian Olympic Committee spokesman Konstantin Vybornov confirmed to The Associated Press by e-mail that the appeal had been filed with the Court of Arbitration for Sport and would be heard July 19.If Russia wins, the Olympic application deadline will be extended to let Russian athletes apply, the ROCs legal department head Alexandra Brilliantova told the Tass news agency.The case is being brought jointly by the ROC and dozens of top Russian athletes.The IAAF, tracks world governing body, suspended Russia in November after a World Anti-Doping Agency report detailed widespread, state-sponsored doping in Russian track and field. The ban was upheld by the IAAF in a vote last month.A case has been filed at CAS today and a hearing date of 19 July set. We believe the deadline for team submissions should fit with this timeline, the IAAF said in an e-mailed statement.The IAAF ban already allows a small number of Russians to compete at the Rio Olympics if they can show they have been based outside the country and subject to testing from a respected, non-Russian anti-doping agency.Brilliantova said Sunday that she believed only two Russians would currently fit the criteria out of more than 80 who have applied to the IAAF. While Brilliantova did not name the duo, they are likely to be the U.S.-based long jumper Daria Klishina, who is a two-time European indoor champion, and the Italy-based pole vaulter Alyona Lutkovskaya.In addition, the IAAF has already approved an application from Russian athlete and doping whistleblower Yulia Stepanova, whose testimony of doping within the Russian team, including undercover footage of apparent doping confessions, formed an important part of the evidence against Russia in the WADA investigation.Stepanova is due to return to competition next week at the European championships, racing in the 800 meters as a so-called neutral athlete not representing a particular country.European Athletics said Sunday that athletes at the championships would wear bibs with messages such as I run clean, I jump clean and I throw clean in a statement against performance-enhancing drug use. Madison Bumgarner Giants Jersey . Brandon Morrow allowed five runs on six hits over three innings. He struck out two, walked one and hit a batter. Edwin Encarnacion had a two-out, bases loaded two-RBI double in the third inning. Mel Ott Jersey . It is a cliché dragged out by fans and pundits regularly when discussions take place around which teams are better than others. http://www.sfgiantsapparelsshop.com/brandon-crawford-jersey-c-26/ . From filmmaker Nanette Burstein (On the Ropes), The Price of Gold revisits the saga that rocked the figure skating world ahead of the 1994 Lillehammer Olympic Winter Games: the assault on Nancy Kerrigan, and the plot that led its way back to her rival Tonya Harding. ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Eric Ebron walked without a limp onto the practice field about 30 minutes after the rest of the Detroit Lions began practicing Monday.Afterward, Ebron ignored questions from reporters and Caldwell declined to shed light on anything related to the injury suffered by the tight end over the weekend.Only one thing is clear: Detroits backup tight ends are going to get a great opportunity to earn playing time and perhaps a spot on the final roster.Undrafted rookie Cole Wick and journeyman Matthew Mulligan are the leading candidates to get a lot of snaps Tuesday through Thursday during practices with the Pittsburgh Steelers and against them Friday night in an exhibition game.Wick, an undrafted rookie from the University of the Incarnate Word in Texas, said he had offers to sign with Carolina, Oakland, Philadelphia and Tampa Bay along with a few other teams before accepting the Lions offer. Wick took the only option he had to play in college and his position coach was Larry Moore, who made it in the NFL as an undrafted rookie and played for three teams from 1998 to 2005.Im just going to do my best with the reps that Im giving at this point and try to capitalize on all opportunities, Wick said.Ebron went down with an undisclosed injury to his lower right leg Saturday during a mock game and was carted off the field.Wick tried to make the most of Ebron going from the top player at the position to a tutor of sorts on Monday.He has been a great mentor, Wick said. If Im taking a step too shallow hes there to tell me. Hes helping me with routes, footwork and blocking.Mulligan has 17 career catches since making his league debut in 2009 with the New York Jets. Deion Sanders Jersey. Adam Fuehne, Orson Charles and Ben McCord are the other tight ends on Detroits roster.Obviously they get a little bit more reps, which I think is always good and guys have to take advantage of it, Caldwell said. When your rep count goes up youve got to make certain that youre playing well. Obviously you see them catch a few balls here and there, but theres a lot more to it than that.Ebron went down with an undisclosed injury to his lower right leg Saturday during a mock game and was carted off the field.Youre going to have some injuries happen all the time that way, Caldwell said. You hope they dont, but sometimes they do.The Lions were hoping Calvin Johnson would return for a 10th season, but the superstar receiver chose to retire. That led to them counting even more on Ebron, drafted No. 10 overall in 2014, in the passing game this season.They might have to come up with Plan B. Ebron had 47 receptions for 537 yards and five touchdowns. If healthy, he seemed set up to have the best year of his career.Even before Detroits best tight end was hurt, it didnt have much depth at the position.Brandon Pettigrew is recovering from a torn knee ligament late last year and might not be healthy enough to start the season. Tim Wright, another veteran, had a season-ending knee injury earlier this year.You have to be able to adjust, Caldwell said.
