Omaha to host 2016 US swim trials for 3rd time

Sports

April 28th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — The 2016 U.S. Olympic swimming trials are going back to Omaha for the third time. USA Swimming President Bruce Stratton announced the decision to return to Nebraska on Saturday. San Antonio and St. Louis were the other finalists. Omaha has hosted the last two trials, in 2012 and 2008. Last year’s eight-day event was attended by more than 164,000 fans and the meet was broadcast live in prime time on NBC. Two temporary pools were built inside the CenturyLink Center for the event.

USA Swimming assistant executive director Mike Unger says Omaha won again because the setup for the athletes and coaches was the best among the three finalists. The trials will be held in early July.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Queen Harrison ran a world-leading 12.71 seconds in the 100-meter hurdles Saturday to win the marquee event at the Drake Relays.

Zusana Hejnova of the Czech Republic cruised to the 400 hurdles title in a world-leading 54.41. Germany’s Bjorn Otto won the men’s pole vault at 18 feet, 8 1/4 inches and Reese Hoffa took the shot put title.

Spain’s Ruth Beitia won the women’s high jump at 6-4 3/4 and Nick Willis took the men’s mile in 3:55.70.

Iowa RB Canzeri impresses in spring ball

Sports

April 28th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — A crowd of roughly 16,500 Iowa football fans was given a show Saturday by running back Jordan Canzeri. The sophomore running back looked like his old self after missing all of last season with a knee injury. Canzeri made swift cuts and displayed significant acceleration during Iowa’s 2013 spring game at Kinnick Stadium.

His performance was well received, both by the fans and coaches who watched him. Some of his family even traveled all the way from his hometown of Troy, New York just to watch him scrimmage.

Martin’s homer lifts Pirates over Cardinals

Sports

April 28th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Russell Martin hit a two-run home run to highlight a four-run seventh inning and the Pittsburgh Pirates rallied to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-3 on Saturday. The comeback gave A.J. Burnett (2-2) his second victory over St. Louis in 10 days. He gave up two runs and five hits in six innings. His six strikeouts expanded his team record for month of April to a league-leading 48. Burnett threw seven shutout innings in a 5-0 win over St. Louis on April 17.

St. Louis starter Jake Westbrook left after six innings with a 2-0 lead in search of his 100th career victory. He struck out six and scattered six hits to lower his ERA to 0.98 in four starts. The Pirates had three consecutive hits against Joe Kelly (0-1) to lead off the seventh and were aided by a hit by pitch and a walk to score four runs.

Okoboji Pioneers agrees to Oregon’s logo request

Sports

April 26th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

OKOBOJI, Iowa (AP) – A northwest Iowa school district superintendent says the Okoboji Pioneers team will phase out its use of an “O” logo after receiving complaints from the University of Oregon.  Superintendent Gary Janssen tells the Sioux City Journal the district will phase out use of the maroon logo at the request of the Eugene, Ore., university. Oregon has trademarked its green or yellow emblem, designed by athletic apparel company Nike.

Janssen says he has drafted a plan to stop using the logo and has asked Oregon for time, noting the district has used the logo for nearly 10 years.  Matt Dyste, the university’s director of marketing and brand management, says Oregon must protect its trademark but doesn’t want to hurt local school districts and will be patient.

Lolo Jones says she is “Hercules strong”

Sports

April 26th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – Lolo Jones returned from a brief stint as a bobsledder with a gold medal and more strength than ever. Jones’s power burst has led her to adopt a new starting technique – one she hopes can rejuvenate her hurdling career.

Jones helped the U.S. bobsled team win a gold medal at the world championships in Switzerland in January. She also discovered she was setting personal bests in training after pushing around a 400-pound sled for months.   Such power has inspired Jones to try a new seven-step starting technique, which shaves off a step leading to the first hurdle by using longer strides, at this weekend’s Drake Relays.

Jones, who grew up in Des Moines, will run the 100-meter hurdles final Saturday against London Olympics rivals and medalists Dawn Harper and Kellie Wells.
