But the league swiftly

Innleggfrá zxlbxj1 » 07 Des 2018, 06:00

One of Jean-Luc Brassards most memorable moments of the Sochi Olympics came in the hours long after an event, in a darkened, empty stadium.The Olympic moguls champion was consoling an athlete and his family after a disappointing performance. Seeing in their eyes the disappointment that they had, and trying to find the right words, knowing that you dont try to hide the truth, you try just to digest that moment, Brassard said. And then you tell them that in a few days, or maybe the following day, you will remember the entire process that brought you there. So much fun and great memories.Its not only about a single result, its about the entire process to become an Olympian.Brassard was named Canadas chef de mission Thursday for the 2016 Rio Olympics. His experience in Sochi, as an assistant to Canadian chef Steve Podborski, convinced him that no matter the sport, winter or summer, an Olympian is an Olympian.They speak the same language, its an Olympian language, Brassard said. And at the end of the day, that made me agree to go for Rio, even if its a summer Games. Its not so much about the technicality of the sports. Theres no more liaison between a bobsleigh guy and a short-track skater, than a bobsleigh guy and a 100-metre runner.Brassard competed in four Olympic Games, capturing gold in 1994 in Lillehammer to become Canadas first ever male Olympic champion in skiing. Four years later, he carried Canadas flag into the opening ceremonies of the 1998 Nagano Olympics, where he finished fourth.He capped his Olympic career at the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City.The Canadian Olympic Committee made the announcement at Brazilian-themed restaurant in Montreal.The native of Grand-Ile, Que., spent most of the Sochi Games at the Krasnaya Polyana mountain cluster of venues, where I kind of belonged.It was great to remember my past, as an athlete, to try to apply that to find the right words to talk to the actual athletes, he said in a phone interview. The great thing at the time is I think I had no desire to be an athlete anymore, its long gone for me, in my mind. That case is done. But I still want to help the young kids, and I want them to have the opportunity to feel exactly the great feeling that I experienced when I was an athlete, so I tried to find the right words to talk to them. And surprisingly, you dont really take care of the winners, because communications grabs them after the race and they reappear the next morning after they went through all the media. But you spend a lot of time with the people that didnt achieve the result that they wanted.Since the two-time world champion retired in 2002, hes been a full-on freelancer, working as a television host, commentator, and writing articles on skiing and mountaineering.He said feels the same thrill watching Canadian athletes compete as he did when he stepped into the moguls starting gate.Im way more emotional, he said. I dont have a child, but I can imagine its a bit like how a parent looks at their child. You really wonder how a kid can achieve something so amazing, being by himself on the top of the run, and they have to do the job. And at an age that most students are in school, they dont even know what theyre going to do in life. The only thing that they care is having a beer at night with their friends. But youre asking these athletes to make the performance of their life.I get very very emotional. Every time that I see one of these athletes at the bottom, stepping up on the podium, it brings tears to my eyes. I had the chance in my life to be successful and to feel that, and Im totally thrilled for them now when they can do it too.And I know that theyre going to be amazing role models after that. Im at an age where I find that this is important too.One of Brassards first tasks will be getting to know some of Canadas summer athletes. Some 200 of them will gather next week in Gatineau, Que., as part of a pre-Rio symposium.I dont want to walk into the place in my big boots, saying Hey, here I am. I want to do that very slowly, he said.Hell then choose an assistant chef for the Games, which run Aug. 5-21, 2016.Mark Tewksbury was chef de mission of the Canadian team at the 2012 London Summer Olympics.

But unfortunately for the Niagara Falls, Ont., native, a pulled muscle wouldnt allow him to go past the second set. Japan sealed its victory over Canada in the first-round Davis Cup tie after Nishikori downed an ailing Dancevic 6-2, 1-0.In an effort to restart collective bargaining talks with the CFL, the Players Association submitted a new four-year offer to the league Monday, TSN learned Monday night. The unions new offer included reductions on several financial proposals from ones made in its previous offer made last week. But the league swiftly rejected the new numbers, pushing the players closer to considering a work stoppage. In a memo obtained by TSN, the players financial proposals included a $5.2 million salary cap in 2014 ($4.8 million minimum) that grew to $6.0 million ($5.4 million minimum) after four seasons. Minimum salaries would start at $50,000 dollars in 2014, and grow to $53,000 by 2017. Last week, the players offered a $5.8 million salary cap that would grow 3% annually. But the crux of the unions financial recommendations was a "Revenue Protection Clause" created to set a threshold to renegotiate the salary cap if the CFLs aggregate revenues drastically increased. In the third year of a new deal, the players would want to renegotiate the cap if league revenues increased $12 million from the previous year. In the players newest offer, the threshold would be set at $18 million. The union also revised pension contributions ($4,000 per player and $4,000 per club), and "Compensation for Veterans for Increase in Salary Expenditure Caap" set at $8,500 for veterans and $1,500 for rookies.dddddddddddd And the union maintained its desire to discuss other points, including practice times and numbers of contact practices, and salary protection and medical treatment if players are injured late in season. At the beginning of the memo the Players Association describes its offer as "more favourable." Last week, the CFL offered a $5 million cap and a threshold to reopen discussions on the salary cap limit if league-wide revenues increased by $27 million from the previous year, also in the third season of a new CBA. Hours before the current CBA expired, commissioner Mark Cohon called it the leagues "final" offer. The CFL has evidently not moved from that position, and quickly rejected the players offer. "[The CFL] indicated that they see no point in meeting unless we are prepared to accept their offer," reads the Players Associations memo. "It is obvious to your Negotiating Committee that notwithstanding our effort to resolve this matter, the only possible way of convincing them that they should reconsider their position will be with a work stoppage." The Players Associations memo closes by stating players will be advised what the unions next move is once strike ballots from Calgary and Edmonton are counted. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
