The Russian medal count at the Pyeongchang Games has been low because of the International Olympic Committee vetting process, bad luck, and - once again - doping. Medvedeva broke Yuna Kim and Mao Asada's world records. The four-time national champion from Kyoto appeared confident throughout and notched her best score of the season.
Pogba has been left out of three of the last five Manchester United starting lineups, with Mourinho's side losing the the two games that the 24-year-old has started. The Portuguese, however, pointed to the steely display of 21-year-old Scott McTominay , who was making his eighth competitive start for United and only his second in the Champions League .
Canada was ideal in the preliminary round of the tournament, defeating everyone in their group - including the United States . Kennedy and Hebert are Olympic gold medallists with the Kevin Martin rink at the 2010 Winter Games. Team USA can rely on the plays of Dani Cameranesi who delivered two goals against Finland in the semifinals. Shannon Szabados made 14 saves in the shutout.
Willian rattled Ter Stegen's other upright before the break as Chelsea broke from their shackles, although an absorbing first period, in which Barcelona's best chance was a wayward Paulinho header from a Messi cross, ended goalless.

Shiffrin had always planned to compete in the giant slalom, slalom and the alpine combined, with decisions to be made at games time relative to her participation in both the super-G and the downhill.

Vonn has been battling with her emotions since arriving in South Korea, appearing to teeter on the edge of a breakdown in nearly every interview. A devastating knee injury kept her out of the 2014 Sochi Olympics and Vonn estimated she has spent the equivalent of three years rehabbing from various injuries.
Before they pointed their skis down the mountain, Italy's Sofia Goggia, Vonn's friend and No. 1 rival in the Olympic downhill, was asked who she - Goggia - thought was the favorite. Shiffrin, who already won the giant slalom gold medal in PyeongChang, chose to instead focus on preparing for the combined event, which is scheduled for Wednesday.
She did win gold in the giant slalom, but now has just one more shot to win her second gold medal of the games. Vonn said she would be watching film of Goggia's training runs to see if she could get some ideas for the best line to take, especially in the lower section where others had complained it was hard to maintain speed.
There were many small moments of warm relations that seemed to improve as the games went on. That's what it is, right? "It's always going to be there". Canada beat the U.S . But they should have won in 2014, and they didn't. The teams' history against each other is extensive. "I keep pinching myself".
With only a handful of racers still to go, Czech racer Ester Ledecka appeared poised for gold with a mark of 1:21.11, which was 0.38 seconds ahead of Vonn. Frustrating to be so close to the podium and to have made such a big mistake...but that's ski racing. She's set to compete in two more events. Austrian Veith had been celebrating her run at the bottom of the racecourse as Ledecka pushed out of the start, the 26th racer of the day.

And it will be a promising one since they beat the American team at the opening Olympic tournament in PyeongChang on Wednesday, with a 3:2 win against the U.S. "If we can sustain the energy that we played with the first two periods, that would be what would help us be successful". In the game because of goalie Gasper Kroselj, who stopped 34 of 36 shots, Slovenia came to life when Jan Urbas scored 5:37 into the third period.
South Africa: Hashim Amla, Aiden Markram ( captain ), Jean-Paul Duminy, AB de Villiers , Heinrich Klaasen (w), David Miller , Chris Morris , Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Lungisani Ngidi, Morne Morkel.

Manchester City are lucky to have star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne , according to team-mate Sergio Aguero . City opened the scoring in only the third minute, Raheem Sterling showing he learned his lesson from a awful miss against Burnley last week and tapping in at the back post.
It hasn't been the best though. The Boilermakers gave the Spartans all they could handle, but MSU played smart and made some big shots down the stretch. Thompson were no-shows on Wednesday, and that just can't happen again today. But if the Spartans were to top the Boilermakers , they could very well be catapulted into that discussion.
Everybody knows what they bring to the group and everyone has that buy-in, team-first mentality. Ice Hockey player Jordan Greenway poses for a portrait during the Team USA Media Summit ahead of the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games on September 25, 2017 in Park City, Utah.
You know, the ones who do what they say they will. It's every assistant you hire, every person you hire and their families. Ballard noted McDaniels never asked to contact Luck. New England Patriots OC Josh McDaniels was set to take over. Whether it's Frazier or anyone else, they are probably looking for that quality more than anything else with the man they intend to hire as their next head coach.

Toure left Guardiola's Barcelona to join City in 2010 and has been one of the most influential players in the club's modern history, scoring in Wembley final wins over Stoke City and Sunderland and serving as a star performer in the Premier League title triumphs of 2011-12 and 2013-14.
Shikhar Dhawan's breezy 63-ball 76 also added flavours in India's batting. Virat Kohli slammed a masterful 160 not out to power India to 303/6 in the third ODI against South Africa at a sunlit Newlands on Wednesday. Not reading the spinners led to South African batsmen being defensive which pushed the run-rate up. "We bowl slow because the ground is very small and they have big hitters".
