August 3 — Duke in Rio

August 3 — Duke in Rio

The Zimbabwe coach was generous in his praise to the Brazilian fans who cheered his underdog team on against Germany.

On Sept. 27, 2006 the Canadian Olympic Committee announced Baumann would take over Canada's Road to Excellence Initiative with the goal of taking Canada's Olympic team from 21st place at Athens in 2004 to the Top 16 at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the Top 12 at the 2012 London Games. You wouldn't dare criticise them in any way, shape or form in public, like we do the Socceroos. There is a consistent and dangerously high level of viruses that can cause stomach and respiratory illnesses reports have warned.

"For sure, (they're) unpredictable as a team", she added. "We have some very young players. We know they're physically fit as well".

The youngest member of Australia's entire Olympic team, 16-year-old Carpenter was hoping to make her fifth official appearance for the Matildas.

"It's more of an edge now", centre Natalie Achonwa of Guelph said. "It's a pretty powerful song". I eat too many maple leaf Oreos, wear too much red and white and get too few hours of sleep. It was the fastest goal in Olympics history, and Canada went on to win 2-0. In the 73rd, Canada was awarded a penalty on a phantom handball by an Australian defender.

Tancredi, who was sidelined briefly after injuring her leg in a pre-Games friendly against China in France, got the start Wednesday on merit according to Herdman. Is Tancredi going to be a regular starter?

Nevertheless it is unfortunate for athletes, volunteers, crew and Canadians wishing to visit Rio to have these concerns overshadowing the Olympic Games.

But their need to attack backfired spectacularly in the second half. "We're ready to show all the work we've put in and just show the world what Canada's made of".

Canada doubled their advantage in the second half despite having a player sent off. Then came allegations of grandiose spending on a $2.9-million boardroom in the COC's new headquarters in Montreal. But McCormack was also confident it wouldn't be a problem either, mainly because it's winter in Rio and mosquito season has ended.

Schiavone's final round of 74 gave her a three-day total of one over-par, 220, three shots ahead of Snodgrass. "But the risks are low".

"I don't swallow the water when I swim at home either", he said. "They'll have learned from the Germany match and those learnings will be applied in our match".

The Fijian U23 side qualified for Rio after defeating Vanuatu in July 2015 during the Pacific Games in Port Moresby.

Both teams play again on Saturday, August 6 in the second match of group play.
