RIO DE JANEIRO -- Niccolo Campriani saw his lead drop to less than a point heading into the finals. Jorge Alfaro Jersey .One miscue or great shot by Ukraines Serhiy Kulish and the gold that eluded the Italian four years ago would slip through his fingers again.Campriani pulled it out by pulling off the two biggest shots of his career.Campriani fired off two golden shots in the final round of the mens 10-meter air rifle Monday at the Rio Olympics, earning the gold medal that he missed in London.Today, I was trying to keep as many happy thoughts as possible. Fear is always around the corner, Campriani said.Campriani tied the Olympic qualifying record in London four years ago, but felt the pressure of being the favorite, hitting the 9-ring twice late in the finals. He finished second to Romanias Alin George Moldoveanu.Campriani still earned gold in 3-position rifle, but the air rifle loss stung.At Rio, he qualified first with an average of 10.503 and opened the finals with a 10.7. He took the lead late in the elimination rounds and led Kulish by 0.4 points heading into the final two shots.Campriani hit 10.6 on his first shot to Kulishs 10.4 and sealed gold with a 10.7 on his final shot. He had 206.1 points to finish 1.5 ahead of Kulish.For me, shooting in the finals is not about taking the best shot, but not making any big mistakes, Campriani said.Kulish, who competed in three shooting events at London, edged Russias Vladimir Maslennikov by 0.2 points in the penultimate round to reach the final, but could not catch Campriani thanks to a 9.8 on his final shot.It is actually a very strange feeling, but tomorrow I think that I will wake up and I will realize what has happened, Kulish said of winning a medal.Maslennikov narrowly missed a shot at gold, but still went home with a medal at his first Olympics. His bronze made Russia the 13th nation to have 400 overall Olympic medals.Campriani and the field took advantage after two of the worlds top shooters failed to make it out of qualifying.World No. 1 Cao Yifei of China had a poor final shot of qualifying to miss the final eight by one spot. Moldoveanu was nearly three points behind the lowest qualifying score and finished 19th. Greg Luzinski Jersey . -- Canadian Andrew Wiggins got the ball on the wing, made a nifty spin move and then let go with a soft floater from about 10 feet that swished through the net in Allen Fieldhouse. Steve Carlton Jersey . -- Ken Appleby made 32 saves for his first shutout of the season to lead the Oshawa Generals to a 2-0 win over the Belleville Bulls on Wednesday in Ontario Hockey League action. http:///...Santana-Kids-Jersey/ .S. hockey team after paying his dues as an NHL general manager for more than three decades and giving up a lot of his free time to help USA Hockey. NEW YORK -- Brian McCann still wanted to catch, a lot. So with his options limited in the New York Yankees lineup, the seven-time All-Star gladly accepted a new opportunity in Houston.McCann waived his no-trade clause and was sent, along with $11 million, to the Astros on Thursday for a pair of young minor league pitchers.The Yankees acquired right-handers Albert Abreu and Jorge Guzman.It had to be the right fit, McCann said on a conference call. It wasnt going to be just anywhere.McCanns playing time diminished in the second half of the season as rookie Gary Sanchez emerged as a power hitter behind the plate. Sanchez hit 20 home runs in just 53 games.It was like nothing Id ever seen before. He was the best player in the game, McCann said.The 32-year-old McCann hit .242 with 20 homers and 58 RBI this year.We entered the offseason with the acquisition of a catcher as a primary focus, Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said in a statement.Brian McCann is a great fit for the Astros as he is not only a good defensive catcher, he is also a left-handed hitter with proven run-producing ability, he said. His experience and his ability to impact his teammates will be a significant benefit to our team.Jason Castro made the most starts at catcher for the Astros last year, batting .210 with 11 homers and 32 RBI.Evan Gattis, known more for his slugging than his catching, also saw time at the spot.Houston and the Yankees met in the AL wild-card game in 2015. They both went 84-78 this year and missed the playoffs.Yankees general mmanager Brian Cashman said the trade gives the team financial flexibility for potential free agents and trades. Drew Hutchison Jersey. .Houston stepped up and I think all parties got what we wanted, he told reporters.McCann made 86 starts at catcher last season, his fewest since he was a rookie with Atlanta in 2005. He figured next year in New York likely would mean catching once a week, plus some platoon time as a designated hitter.I wanted to catch every day, he said. I feel like I still have a lot of good years left.McCann also likes what he sees in the Astros, praising a lot of great young pieces.I wanted to be a part of it, he said.McCann hit 24 homers in 2006 and has hit at least 18 home runs in every season since then. He has 245 career homers with 888 RBI while batting .266.This was McCanns third season in New York after signing an $85 million, five-year deal as a free agent.McCann is due $17 million in each of the next two seasons, and the Yankees will pay $5.5 million both years.The Yankees had a $15 million option for 2019 with no buyout. The option became McCanns if he had at least 1,000 plate appearances combined in 2017 and 2018, had at least 90 starts at catcher in 2018 and didnt end up that season on the disabled list.The 21-year-old Abreu was a combined 3-8 with a 3.72 ERA for two teams in Class A. The 20-year-old Guzman was a combined 3-4 with a 4.05 ERA with two rookie-level teams. 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 China Wholesale Jerseys 2018Nike NFL Jerseys China Jerseys From China Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale China NFL Hoodies Wholesale Authentic Jerseys ' ' '
