Jorge Lorenzo
This weekend the Moto GP teams and riders are at the Estoril circuit for the Portuguese Grand Prix and the amazing Jorge Lorenzo is on pole position, Friday practice session was the first time that the MotoGP rookie had ridden his Fiat Yamaha on the Portuguese circuit, but his speed and riding style were out of this world. He had a narrow escape early in the qualifying session, when he squeezed past a slower rider, Chris Vermeulen. Lorenzo claims he is not feeling under any pressure to win the race on Sunday, but it is looking more and more likely and now only a question of time for his first victory after already claiming a third and second place on the podium.
The winner of the last race at Jerez, Dani Pedrosa, has taken the second position on the grid only 0.233 seconds, slower than Lorenzo. Pedrosa is currently leading the 2008 World Championship
Valentino Rossi, is back on the front row of the grid by securing third place and was absolutely beaming at his success after having been in the top four all weekend.
In fourth place is the teammate of Pedrosa, Nicky Hayden on the second Repsol Honda, who claimed he was blocked on his fast lap. He was followed by the two Tech-3 Yamaha riders, Colin Edwards and James Toseland on their first outing with the new pneumatic-valve engines.
In a superb seventh place was another rookie, Andrea Dovizioso with Randy de Puniet right behind him.
The reigning World Champion, Casey Stoner was the second best Bridgestone runner but still could only manage ninth place on the grid.
John Hopkins was in tenth place after hoping for a top five place this weekend on the Kawasaki.
Loris Capirossi was in a surprising twelfth spot after he had a fast low-side fall, which saw his bike cartwheeling across the gravel.

Jelena Janković (Serbian Cyrillic: Јелена Јанковић) pronounced [ˈjɛlɛna ˈjaːnkɔvitɕ] ( listen); born February 28, 1985 in Belgrade) is a former World No. 1 Serbian professional tennis player. She was runner up at the 2008 US Open and mixed doubles winner at the 2007 Wimbledon. Janković is currently ranked World
Family and early life
Janković was born in Belgrade, Serbia, Yugoslavia, as the third child of Veselin and Snežana, two economists.[citation needed] . She also has two brothers, Marko and Stefan. She is a student at the Megatrend University in Belgrade, studying economics; however, she has put her course of study on indefinite hold as she continues to pursue her tennis career. Janković learned her first tennis skills at the Tennis Club 'Red Star'.[1] As a nine-and-a-half year old she was introduced to tennis by her elder brother and fitness coach Marko.[2] With 11 years has won the national championship in the competition to 12 years. She was later trained at the Tennis Academy of Nick Bollettieri. As a junior she won the 2001 Australian Open.[3] In 2001, she started to play on the WTA Tour; she reached the second round at her first tournament at the Indian Wells Masters.

Tennis career
In October 2003, Janković entered the top 100 at No. 90 for the first time after winning her first ITF title in Dubai. Three months later, Janković garnered her first top 10 win against Elena Dementieva 6–1, 6–4 in the first round of the 2004 Australian Open. In May, Janković won her first WTA title, a Tier V event, in Budapest, defeating Martina Suchá in the final 7–6, 6–3. Following her win in Budapest, she reached No. 51 in the world. Elsewhere in her 2004 season, she defeated top 20 players Nadia Petrova (twice), Vera Zvonareva, Patty Schnyder and Paola Suárez. Janković finished 2004 ranked No. 28 in the world. Having a spectacular junior career is by no means a guarantee for success on the pro WTA Tour, but Jelena was junior number one and also was pro number one in the world. Only Martina Hingis, Amelie Mauresmo and Jelena Jankovic managed to do that.
She was ranked World No. 1 for seventeen consecutive weeks until she was overtaken by Serena Williams on February 2, 2009. She was the year-end World No. 1 in 2008, the second player in the history of the WTA tour to do this without winning a Grand Slam title, after Kim Clijsters.
Janković has reached the singles final of the US Open and the singles semifinals of the Australian Open and the French Open. In 2007, she became the first Serbian player to win a Grand Slam Title when she won the Wimbledon mixed doubles title with British partner Jamie Murray.[4]
She is one of only seven players who has defeated both Williams sisters at the same tournament and one of three players who were World No.1 and as a junior and a senior. Janković is also known for being one of the most consistent Top 10 players, entering it in early 2007 and never falling out of Top 10 ever since

New Zealand Cricket Picture&Wallpaper

New Zealand Cricket
New Zealand Cricket Star Players

New Zealand Cricket has told its selectors to never again consider six former Black Caps for any representative selection after they played in the rebel Indian Cricket League competition.
It appears the players won't even be allowed to hold contracts to play for State Championship teams, and will be limited to playing on for match payments on a game-by-game basis a huge blow to their prospects of playing any more meaningful cricket in New Zealand.
NZ Cricket has advised selectors to disregard for national or "A" team inclusion current prospects Daryl Tuffey and Hamish Marshall, or the recently "retired" Chris Cairns, Nathan Astle, Craig McMillan and Chris Harris.
The six former test players have drawn the ire of the establishment for competing in the lucrative but unsanctioned ICL, which completed its first season of operation this month amid unanimous condemnation from the International Cricket Council's member nations.
Of the sextet, Cairns, Harris and Astle are almost certainly past their use-by dates for national duty, but Tuffey, McMillan and Marshall if the latter opted to reverse his Kolpak status may have entertained thoughts of a comeback.
That now seems impossible following revelations of an agreement to actively discourage the selection of rebel players at all levels struck between the chief executives of all the test-playing nations.
New Zealand Cricket chief executive Justin Vaughan said yesterday he'd been in contact with Lalit Modi, a vice-president of the Indian cricket board, and had phoned Modi to clarify NZC's position and would be speaking to him again on the issue.
But he confirmed the policy of discouraging the selection of the rebels.
"We have a preference that our selectors take into consideration the fact that that these guys have been playing in an unsanctioned competition, an event that isn't in the best interests of New Zealand or world cricket, and that we'd rather that they didn't play," said Vaughan.
"I don't think we can say that they're ineligible for selection. We'd prefer to say that the selectors will be encouraged to consider other players.
"There's an understanding that we don't support the ICL and that we don't want to give them unnecessary traction."
The international pact came to light after the Indian board of control took exception to the inclusion of Tuffey in an Auckland XI that played the Bangladeshi tourists, claiming the selection of a rebel undermined the intent of the agreement.
"All the boards had agreed in principle at the last ICC CEO's meeting that any player who is part of an unauthorised tournament will not be encouraged," Niranjan Shah, the BCCI secretary, told the Times of India.
"This is a violation of a gentleman's agreement. Lalit Modi will write to New Zealand Cricket to protest against this move."
NZC had earlier made clear its position on contracted players participating in the rebel league, saying it would regard the action as a breach of contract. But until last week it had not spelled out its position on the status of non-contracted players.
The impact of the CEOs agreement will probably be felt again this week, when the announcement of the England squad to tour New Zealand will almost certainly highlight the exclusion of rebel players Darren Maddy, Paul Nixon, Chris Read and Vikram Solanki.
"We regard this as a very serious issue," the ECB's new chairman Giles Clarke recently told The Times. "Selectors will be instructed to take into consideration the fact that these players have played in an unauthorised competition. You can draw your own conclusions from that."
NZC's hardline stance follows that of the boards of India, Pakistan and South Africa, who have all threatened their rebel players with bans not only from playing international cricket but also from their domestic competitions.
"We view them as rebels," Gerald Majola, the CSA chief executive, told Beeld, an Afrikaans newspaper. "They have joined a breakaway organisation. Once they have played even one game in the ICL tournament, it's over and they will never be allowed to play in South Africa again."
Pakistan board chief Nasim Ashraf said: "We were very clear about our policy about the ICL and they [the players] knew they would be automatically banned from playing cricket in Pakistan if they took part."
However, the move to marginalise the rebels has received a predictable response from Tim May, the chief executive of the Federation of International Cricketers' Associations.
"If a player wants to retire from international cricket because he's had enough and wants to spend more time with his family and he can seek employment elsewhere, to allow him to spend more time with his family, then, like any other employee, he should be allowed to," May said. "We will resist that [banning players] with everything we have. That is an unreasonable restraint of trade."
Vaughan said at this stage, NZC saw no need to prevent the rebels playing domestic cricket on a non-contracted, match-by-match basis, but they would monitor the situation and could yet change position.

Olympics 2012 Review

Construction work is underway to deliver enhanced Rowing and Canoe Sprint facilities for the London 2012 Games, the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) announced today.

The Rowing and Canoe Sprint events during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games will take place at the Eton College Rowing Centre at Dorney Lake near Windsor. Set in a 450-acre parkland, the venue currently consists of a 2,000-metre, 8-lane rowing lake, return lane and associated competition facilities.

The venue's existing facilities will be enhanced to provide improved facilities for athlete warm-up and Canoe Sprint events during the London 2012 Games. The venue was visited today to view the construction work underway on the enhanced facilities by Matt Smith Executive Director at the International Rowing Federation (FISA), Alison Nimmo ODA Director of Design and Regeneration, and Debbie Jevans Director of Sports at the London 2012 Organising Committee (LOCOG).

Matt Smith, Executive Director at the International Rowing Federation (FISA) said: "Eton Dorney has already established itself as one of the best rowing courses in the world. It will be a great venue to host the Olympic and Paralympic events in 2012. It was good to visit the site again and to see construction work underway early-on. I look forward to seeing these enhanced facilities take shape in the run-up to 2012."

Sebastian Coe, Chairman of the London 2012 Organising Committee said:
"Eton Dorney is a superb venue set in the heart of rowing country. These enhancements show our commitment to providing the best possible facilities at Games time, whilst avoiding spending unnecessary money on creating new venues. Eton Dorney is a world class venue that hosts elite level competition as well as community events, it is a venue of which we can all be proud."

Alison Nimmo, ODA Director of Design and Regeneration, said: "Eton College Rowing Centre is a first-class venue and the enhancements we are delivering will create the best possible facilities for the world's best athletes to use in 2012. The start of construction work at Eton Dorney is an important milestone and shows we are making good progress not just on the Olympic Park but across the 2012 project at venues around the country. These are essential works but we have organised our construction activity to minimise disruption to the regular users of Dorney Lake."

Ivor Lloyd, Managing Director at Eton College Rowing Centre, said: "We have a fantastic venue and the improved infrastructure will help optimise the showcasing of the event for the worldwide media coverage. In legacy there will be additional operational benefits for the venue by bringing us up to the latest design standard for an International course."
The construction of enhanced facilities at Dorney Lake includes:

- The installation of a new 50-metre span finish line bridge over a widened entrance to the return lane for two-way vehicular traffic and segregated pedestrian traffic

- Construction of a cut-through between the competition lake and the return lane, with a new bridge over the cut-through

- The upgrade of the existing gravel/stone access road up to the competition venue to facilitate construction works and for use during the Games

Construction work is now underway on site with a 50m temporary bridge now lifted into place to provide temporary access across the return lane. Work to demolish and remove the existing finish line bridge is also well underway and works to construct the new, enhanced finish line bridge is due to start on site next month. The Eton Dorney enhancement works are expected to be complete in Spring 2010.
