RIO DE JANEIRO -- Chris Froome knows all about missed out-of-competition drugs tests and the whereabouts rule and, while he was keen not to get dragged into the Lizzie Armitstead furore before the Olympic Games, he did issue a stark warning to his fellow competitors.The British Tour de France winner has made two such mistakes in his own career and cannot help but be aware of the reputational damage any sort of drugs-related suspicion brings, with or without foundation.Armitstead said on Tuesday that there will be people who will always have doubts about her performances after her missed tests. Froome, at the peak of his career, appeared keen to avoid any risk of being associated with the latest controversy to hit cycling.Ive missed two [out-of-competition tests], I think, in my whole career, Froome said. I spoke last year extensively about it and Ive got nothing more to add on that.Every case is different and I dont know what Lizzies personal circumstances were around those tests. The rules are there and the authorities have all the info to make the right decisions.Everyone wants to see a clean Games and we hope the authorities have made the right decision now. The system is very comprehensive. You have to give your whereabouts every day of your life for testers and thats there for a clean sport.Froome was frustrated last year by the out-of-competition system and appealed to have a missed test struck from his record; he had taken his wife to a hotel in Italy and claimed staff there denied testers access to them, as guests, at 7 a.m.His other missed test was in 2010 and he is far from the only high-profile athlete to have erred. Christine Ohuruogu, who is on the British track team for Rio, was the last from the country to be banned, getting a one-year suspension in 2006 for three missed out-of-competition tests.A report in?The Times on Wednesday claimed six British athletes, including some on the Olympic team, were on two strikes, or one missed out-of-competition test away from a ban,?although none were named.Froome has previously described failing to comply with the World Anti-Doping Agencys whereabouts rule as unprofessional and, on Tuesday evening, he admitted that the situation must be difficult for Armitstead.What were about to do now, especially me with the road race and time trial, I am completely focused on that, he added at a media event at the British House in Rio. You have to be here with the mindset completely fixed on that. Whatever else on the sidelines is all just periphery.British cycling was bathed in glory at the London Olympics four years ago and there are great expectations that the road-race team will produce a winner from among them for this edition of the Games.A medal in the mens event on Saturday -- which could be Team GBs first of the competition -- could help repair any damage done by the Armitstead furore before she is due to ride on Sunday.But Froome and his teammates have tried to talk down their chances, insisting they are not favourites.I guess we could be launching the British team, Geraint Thomas said. With the strength of the team and Froomey, what he has done, everybody will be talking about us and expecting a lot.Were looking forward to racing and hopefully it will pan out the way we want. If you start thinking about all the external pressures and the British public, it is not helpful. Kevin King Super Bowl Jersey . It says Pocklingtons lawyer filed the appeal Friday in a California court. CTV Edmonton also says Pocklington gave a $100,000 cash deposit as part of the conditions of his bail, and that he will be out on bail until his appeal is heard. Aaron Jones Super Bowl Jersey . Deulofeu injured a muscle in his right leg in Evertons 4-1 win over Fulham in the English Premier League on Saturday. Barcelona says that its team doctors will "co-ordinate" with Evertons medical staff as Deulofeu recovers. http://www.packersonlineteamstore.com/mason-crosby-youth-jersey.html . The No. 1-ranked Nadal tweaked his back warming up for the Australian Open final, which he lost almost four weeks ago in a major upset against Stanislas Wawrinka. His first stop after the layoff is the clay in Rio as he tests the back and tries to stay healthy for the French Open in three months. Dean Lowry Super Bowl Jersey . There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me. Blake Martinez Super Bowl Jersey .C. -- Calgarys Kevin Koe did it the hard way again. Ole Miss must readjust its goals.So must LSU -- albeit in a much different way -- as No. 23 Ole Miss and No. 25 LSU prepare for their annual encounter Saturday (9 p.m. ET, ESPN) in Baton Rouge, La.The Rebels (3-3, 1-2 SEC) entered the 2016 campaign hopeful the season would end in some kind of championship, but after six games they are sitting at .500 with that title talk in all likelihood muted for good.The Tigers (4-2, 2-1) came into the fall with a preseason No. 5 ranking and harboring hopes of making the College Football Playoff, but started 2-2.Coach Les Miles was fired at that point, but suddenly LSU caught fire under interim coach Ed Orgeron, posting big wins in their last two games (42-7 over Missouri and 45-10 over Southern Mississippi).With only one conference defeat and games remaining against West Division leaders Alabama and Texas A&M, the Tigers see themselves back in the title picture, if not nationally at least in the conference.You can see a little pep in their step. Guys are making plays, guys are having fun, Orgeron said this week. I know they feel good about being 2-0.OIe Miss, coming off a 34-30 loss to Arkansas that dropped it to 1/3 against ranked opponents, are a bit of a mystery. How will quarterback Chad Kelly and company react to the loss at Arkansas that was sealed when he lost a fumble on the Rebels final drive, ending hopes for a comeback win?I think this is when you find out a lot about yourself, a lot about your team, and a lot about your kids, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said.The Rebels figure to see their defense, which doesnt rank any better than 74th nationally in total defense, scoring defense, rush defense or pass defense, severely tested by an LSU offense that has come to life the last two games.The Tigers put up 634 yards in total yards against Missouri -- an LSU high against an SEC foe -- and followed that up with 45 points and 459 yards against Southern Mississsippi.dddddddddddd. The Tigers have the SECs fourth-best rushing attack even though they have been operating without star running back and Heisman hopeful Leonard Fournette, who missed the last two games with a left ankle injury.Derrius Guice has filled in admirably for Fournette with 564 yards on 62 carries. Fournette will rejoin him this week to give the Tigers a 1-2 punch that will go right at an Ole Miss defense that ranks 12th in the league against the run.This will be the ultimate test for us playing against Leonard Fournette, Ole Miss defensive end Marquis Haynes said.Orgeron is even toying with the idea of using Guice and Fournette in the backfield at the same time.We want to rotate our guys, we want them to keep fresh, Orgeron said. It might be a possibility of putting them both in the backfield at the same time.Fournette, Orgeron indicated, is anxious to get back on the field.Were going to let him do all he can, Orgeron said, and hes going to tell me, Hey, coach. Im 100 percent, 80 percent, 90 percent. These are the things I can do.Well run the plays hes able to run. The plays hes not able to run, we wont run them. But well play both. I think theyre both outstanding backs.Adding a side note to the matchup is the relationship between the two coaches.Orgeron went 10-25 as Ole Miss coach from 2005-07 and gave Freeze, his first on-field college coaching job in 2006.I really dont know that my career does what it does without the opportunity he gave me, Freeze said.Orgeron said his ties to the program and Freeze wont be a factor this week, however. This is about his players, he said.I wont mention it, he said. Thats the furthest from my mind. This is about the LSU Tigers. This is about this football team. This is about a very good opponent coming into Tiger Stadium. ' ' '
