BANGKOK -- A celebratory occasion for a Thai Olympic bronze medal winners family turned somber as the athletes grandmother collapsed and died minutes before he won third place in the 56-kilogram weightlifting category. Bismack Biyombo Jersey .A mourning ritual was held Tuesday at the home of Sinphet Kruithong, whose grandmother was among scores of family and friends watching his event live on a big television screen set up especially for the occasion in his village in northeastern Thailand. The festive atmosphere -- villagers cheering and clapping as Sinphet heaved the weights up -- turned somber Monday when people noticed that 82-year-old Subin Khongthap had collapsed.She did not live to see her grandson win the bronze medal.A video taken by a local media outlet, Thai Rath, showed cheering villagers quickly rushing to Subins side and trying to revive her. She was taken to Chumphon Buri Hospital in Surin province, 330 kilometers (210 miles) away, where she was pronounced dead. She will be cremated Wednesday.Sinphet, 22, was the second Thai to win a medal at the Rio Games, following Sopita Tanasan, 22, who won a gold medal for weightlifting in the womens 48 kilogram category on Saturday. He was, however, the first Thai man to medal in weightlifting while nine Thai women have won medals in the past.The gold medal in his event went to Chinas Long Qingquan and Om Yun-Chol of North Korea won the silver. Jonathon Simmons Jersey . The 43-year-old closer, in his 19th and final big league season, has said hed like to play the outfield. Yankees manager Joe Girardi says hes thinking about allowing Rivera to do it this weekend, when the Yankees finish their season with a three-game series at the Houston Astros. Mario Hezonja Jersey . LeBron James and Chris Bosh didnt need any more. Williams scored 11 points in 10 minutes, Alan Anderson scored 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets finished the exhibition season with a 108-87 win over the Miami Heat on Friday night. http:///...cgrady-magic-jersey/ . -- James Young couldnt wait to apply those tweaks to his jump shot, and the first one he made against UT Arlington told him it could be a good night. CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Theres potential for the fourth quarter of Sundays game between the San Diego Chargers and Carolina Panthers to be a wild one.Thats because neither team has particularly shown a penchant for finishing games this season.The Panthers (4-8) have allowed a league-high 138 points in the fourth quarter and have lost five games by three points or less. The Chargers (5-8) have surrendered five fourth-quarter leads and have allowed 122 points in the fourth quarter, second most in the NFL.You look at teams and the difference between winning and losing isnt much on a weekly basis, Chargers coach Mike McCoy said. It more often than not comes down to some play or some drive late in the game that a team makes or doesnt. You have to make those plays and theres a number of close games that weve been in ... for one reason or another we havent closed games out.Neither have the Panthers.Carolina lost 40-7 to the Seattle Seahawks last week as Cam Newton was benched to start the game because he violated a team rule by not wearing a tie on the team flight. But prior to that blowout, the Panthers lost to New Orleans, Kansas City, Oakland and Tampa Bay on last-minute field goals -- two of them as time expired.They also lost the season opener at Denver when Graham Gano missed a 50-yard field goal at the end of regulation.Cam made a great point the other day when he said, `The hard part, coach, is we didnt really get a chance to come back from some of those because they were last-minute plays, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. And I get that. You would love to have the ball in his hands because one of his strengths is the way he runs the two-minute offense.Some things to watch in the Chargers-Panthers game:CAROLINA CONNECTION: This will be a homecoming of sorts for McCoy, who spent eight seasons with the Panthers as an assistant coach and still has strong ties to the organization. McCoy said he and his family still vacation every summer with former Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme and his family.Meanwhile Rivera also worked as an assistant coach with the Chargers from 2008-2010.BOSA SWAG: The Chargers like the swagger that first-round draft pick Joey Bosa has brought to the team after missing four games following a holdout.Once he got going, hes been a guy whos had a big impact for us, Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers said. Terrence Ross Jersey. You know his demeanor, the guys love him, but his demeanor is what you would think in watching him play. Its a little bit, not cocky, but just kind of like he knows hes dang good. And he trots out there; he expects to be the best guy out there.KUECHLYS STATUS: The Panthers are hoping to get 2103 Defensive Player of the Year Luke Kuechly back this week after he sat out two weeks with his second career concussion. While some have suggested the right call is to hold Kuechly out for the rest of the season with the Panthers a huge long shot the make the playoffs, Rivera said his middle linebacker will play if and when cleared by doctors.My response would be that hes a football player, Rivera said. And if he passes the protocol and he wants to play and the doctors want him to play, hell play. Its that simple. I dont control the protocol. But I do control the football team, in terms of, `Were going out there to play, were playing (games) one at a time, we play to win.CHARGERS UNCERTAINTY: The Chargers are on the verge of missing the playoffs for the sixth time in seven seasons, and theres uncertainly about McCoys future. He is 27-33 in four seasons. Theres also a cloud hanging over the franchise as chairman Dean Spanos ponders whether to relocate to Los Angeles following the defeat of a ballot measure for a new stadium.I dont think anybodys thinking about that in the fourth quarter. You dont just start thinking about it, Rivers said. Shoot, I dont give much thought to things I dont know enough about.OPENING THE GATES: Chargers star tight end Antonio Gates still needs three touchdown catches to break Tony Gonzalezs NFL record of 111 for the position. Gates hasnt caught a TD pass in two games. He wasnt targeted in a win at Houston two weeks ago, and had only four catches for 37 yards in a home loss to Tampa Bay last Sunday. Rivers and Gates have connected on 82 TD passes, the most in NFL history between a QB and tight end.---AP Sports Writer Bernie Wilson in San Diego contributed to this report.---For more NFL coverage: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL ;Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Store NFL Jerseys From ChinaWholesale Jerseys 2018 Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys From China Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Hoodies Wholesale Authentic Jerseys' ' '
