Katherine Grainger has become the most decorated female British Olympian ever, winning womens double sculls silver with Vicky Thornley at Rio 2016.On a stunning morning at the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, the 40-year-old wrote her name into the record books by winning a fifth medal to move ahead of swimmer Rebecca Adlington.Grainger was only just unable to retain the gold won with Anna Watkins at London 2012, but securing silver with Thornley at the age of 40 is a remarkable feat.It is another silver for Grainger having also finished second at Sydney 2000, Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008. This one comes less than two years after returning to the sport having completed a PhD in the sentencing of homicide at Kings College London.The journey to Brazil has been bumpy, with the 40-year-old and 28-year-old Thornley deciding to abandon the double sculls project midway through the season, only to reform having failed to qualify for seats in the eight.Their selection in the double sculls was confirmed a month and a half ago and the duo have impressed in Rio, finishing second in both the heats and semifinals at the Lagoa.Things started brightly in the final as they crossed the 500m mark in the lead, which was stretched to 0.64 seconds over the Polish crew at the halfway point.It was nip and tuck for a while, only for Grainger and Thornley to open up a 1.25secs lead heading into the final stretch. However, Polands Magdalena Fularczyk-Kozlowska and Natalia Madaj were able to kick on to grab gold, with the British crew finishing an agonising 0.95s behind.Grainger told BBC One: Its one of those races at the start of the regatta youd have taken with both hands because we led most of the way. It was a little tinge of what might have been.Considering what weve been through the last couple of years, Im so proud of what weve done. Its a medal that not many would have put money on so Im pleased.Thornley added: Im so thankful to Katherine that she did such a good job in that race. It was really quite a big headwind and Im not sure what happened at the end and it just got a bit tight or whatever. Im just a bit lost for words if Im honest. Its a bit of a whirlwind.The British pair led with 200 metres to go but Grainger did not get over-confident of victory, saying: I dont think you ever think youre going to win it. I knew we were ahead and I knew we were feeling good and then we just came down so quickly and you draw on every element youve got and every bit of experience youve got.It wasnt quite enough in the end but we put so much into the race to make sure we were in that position. I dont think we could have done anymore.I thought if I could come out with a medal of any kind here it would be my greatest achievement. There were many, many dark days. So to stand here with a medal around our necks makes it all worthwhile. Air Max 97 Ultra Scontate .

PHILOMATH, Ore. -- The scoreboard at the edge of Philomath High Schools football field is dark. The stands are empty. This year, there are no varsity games that brought together many of the towns 4,500 people.Hazing inflicted by upperclassmen on 11 freshman players at a conditioning camp has led to the seasons cancellation, investigations by authorities and the school district, and calls for healing and for the tradition to stop.Studies show more than half of college students in sports teams, clubs and organizations have experienced hazing. Many were hazed in high school. Just last week in California, three varsity high school football players were charged in a separate incident.Breaking the cycle is difficult, but Philomath is tackling the issue head on.The school district is paying attention to both what happened and what could prevent this from happening again, Superintendent Melissa Goff told The Associated Press. Were paying very close attention to the mental health needs of our students and how we, as a community, can pull together.Philomath is a small, sleepy town. Traffic barrels past shuttered businesses on Main Street, a highway heading into the Coastal Range to the west. Corvallis, home to Oregon State University, lies 3 miles (4.8 kilometers) to the east.The town formed around Philomath College, which existed from 1865 to 1929. Its name is Greek for lover of learning.Philomath has little in the way of entertainment, and several people said the loss of the football season will be a blow.Its a little bitty town, and theres not much else to do, so there was usually a pretty big turnout there, said Rhonda Lewis, a waitress at the C D & J Cafe, on Main Street. I dont know whats going to happen now.Pastors representing seven churches have made themselves available to listen, pray for and offer counseling to local students, parents and school district personnel, said Jim Hall, senior pastor of Living Faith Community Church. Theyve had conversations with a broad spectrum of townspeople, Hall said.The school district contracted an independent investigator, Goff said. That probe is ongoing. The Oregon State Police also investigated, because the incident happened at a state-owned camp.Benton County District Attorney John Haroldson said 11 freshman players had intimate parts of their bodies targeted during an initiation.In court Thursday, one of six upperclassmen charged with misdemeanors pleaded guilty to harassment. As part of his sentence, he wwill speak out against hazing and stand up for the victims.ddddddddddddHaroldson, who advocated for the term, said victims are being blamed for the football seasons cancellation and some students expulsions, and instead should be recognized for their courage.The hazing existed for years, instilled as part of the institution, and had gotten worse, Haroldson said.The coaches didnt stop it, he told Circuit Court Judge Locke A. Williams. They chose not to stop it or couldnt stop it.The judge noted hazing isnt isolated to Philomath and said there must be an understanding that this is a practice that cannot continue.A 22-year-old volunteer assistant coach stands charged in the county where the hazing occurred. All the coaches are on leave, Goff said.The decision was made to cancel the varsity season after other athletes and coaches evaluated the readiness of eligible players. The junior varsity season remains on track.Brittany Dryden, manager of Wilsons NAPA Auto Parts store, feels the cancellation is a little harsh.I understand people make mistakes ... but I dont see why we have to punish the whole football team, and punish other people that werent involved, had nothing to do with it, Dryden said. Its just not fair to those kids.Goff has a rebuttal: High school football in Philomath is important, but it is not as important as our kids.Hazing might be part of human nature, and it definitely goes back to ancient Greece and Rome, said Susan Lipkins, a psychologist and an expert on hazing.Victims take the experience to college and the military, primed to be hazed again and again, Lipkins said in a telephone interview from Port Washington, New York.Over time, they often become perpetrators, feeling they have the right to do unto others what was done to them, Lipkins said.Ending the cycle requires breaking the silence.Philomath seems to be handling its case right so far, Lipkins said. To prevent hazing, schools must encourage victims to come forward, using clearly established methods like the internet and even reporting abuse anonymously so they arent labeled wimps.But few high schools and colleges follow through on promises to eliminate hazing, Lipkins noted.They react, she said. They dont prepare for it and dont have a system in place in any meaningful way.---Follow Andrew Selsky on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/andrewselsky Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap Wholesale Jerseys From China Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Online ' ' '
