WINNIPEG -- Reigning Canadian curling champion Rachel Homan got two bits of good news on Thursday. Real Jordans For Cheap Prices . The Ottawa skip advanced to Fridays semifinal at the Canadian Olympic curling trials, and then she learned the federal government had approved funding of more than $2.5 million for the Canadian Curling Association in 2013-14. "Its hard to make it as an amateur athlete because theres not much money involved and its not like the pros," said the 24-year-old. "A lot of times we have to take off work to try and fully train and commit to making it to the Olympics and trying to get Canada gold, so its nice to have that support in being able to try to get to your dreams and achieve that podium status." CCA chief executive officer Greg Stremlaw said the governments investment through Sport Canada is similar to the previous years funding. "It not only enables the Canadian Curling Association to grow the sport at the grassroots level, but helps our nation establish and maintain consistent podium results and the excellence that is synonymous with Canadian curling," Stremlaw said. "We sincerely appreciate all that the government of Canada does for sport." Stremlaw said the money is used for programs involving able-bodied athletes and those with a disability. Funds are allocated for coaching and salaries, national team programs and coaching and officials development. An Athlete Assistance program funded by the government gave $633,000 to 67 carded curlers in 2012-13 to help with their living and training expenses. The amount will be similar in 2013-14, Stremlaw said. Homan and her teammates are carded athletes. The winner of the trials earns a trip to next years Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia.

He earned his first caps for Sweden this month, featuring against Bahrain and Qatar. Wholesale Air Jordan Shoes . PAUL, Minn. http://www.cheapauthenticairjordanforsale.com/ . Berkman almost left the game last off-season before signing with the Texas Rangers. He then had another injury-plagued season and was limited to 73 games.At the recent Cup of China, it was a shocking collision during the 6-minute warmup of the mens event that unfortunately overshadowed the competition and stole the headlines. Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu of Japan and Han Yan of China collided full speed at centre ice and both were left lying on the ice holding their heads while they tried to get up and the medics tried to reach them. Both were helped off the ice and attended to and the warmup was stopped to give shocked officials and the other competitors a chance to regroup before it was restarted. Hanyu and Yan were examined by doctors who found no concussion symptoms. Both elected to skate and, while they struggled valiantly, the toll of the crash was obvious in their performances. It looks unlikely that Hanyu and Yan will be ready for their next Grand Prix events as Yan is due up next week in France and Japanese officials have said that Hanyu, who is at home in Sendai recovering, will be off for 2-3 weeks which is when he is due to compete in Japan at the NHK Trophy. We saw the skaters resolve and determination in China so stay tuned. The unlikely may happen. With his second place finish, Hanyu is still in the running for the Grand Prix Final in December and his next competition is on home ice so his motivation to compete will be strong. The bright light for Team Canada in China was the performance of 16-year-old Nam Nguyen, who continued to show remarkable composure and consistency in his second outing on the Senior Circuit. He was the first competitor to take the ice after the unsettling warmup and once again stepped up big time, nailing another quadruple jump and delivering a virtually clean skate. His only error came when he singled a planned triple axel but, showing a focus and confidence beyond his years, he added it later in the program in combination with a triple toe loop. Not only was it a smart calculation by Nam, it was a risky move that only a handful of skaters in the world would be capable of. He finished fourth overall to add to his surprise bronze medal win at Skate America. Interesting to note that Nam just started trying and landing his quad this summer and is 3-for-3 in competition this season. Quite remarkable. He is young and still growing so lacks the power of some of the top guys but what he has shown us so far this season, his love of performing and ability to pull in top technical scores, is that he is heading down a path that is reminiscent of some of the Canadian legends in the sport. As expected, the Russian ladies continued to dominate in China but what was a surprise was that it was not Olympic team gold medalisst Julia Lipnitskaya who was the eventual winner, it was her teammate Elizaveta Tuktamysheva who stole the show. Authentic Jordans For Cheap. Where Julia fell completely apart in the free skate, calling it my worst skate ever!, Elizaveta delivered an ambitious and engaging long program. She is, for many, the sentimental favourite when it comes to picking among the deep pool of young Russian talent. We watched her rise to prominence as a 14-year-old, only to have it slip away as the Olympics approached due to a maturing body which resulted in inconsistent jumps. In 2011-2012, the Russian golden girl became a Sochi spectator and this summer, her quest became a personal one about getting back to where she once was. Well, she has done that, and then some. Her triples are technically as good as they come. They are light and springy, and clean and controlled. Her performances now have soul. There is a heartfelt emotion that was not there previously. As the saying goes, you dont know what youve got till its gone, and Elizaveta knows what she lost and one can see the triumph of having it back written all over her face. With the win in China and a silver at Skate America, she has earned a spot at the Grand Prix final where, at only 17, she will likely be the elder statesmen in what is shaping up to be a very young field. Also in the ladies event in China, we got our first look at the 16-year-old Canadian silver medalist Gabrielle Daleman on the senior circuit. She finished in a respectable fifth place but was in a virtual tie for fourth (.01 back) in a tough field. Gabby has both the jumping arsenal to contend and the determined focus to attack and deliver. I like what I saw from her in China on her first time out at this level this season and while her face in the kiss and cry said that she did not like the results, she is in the game and, with a little fine tuning, can get the scores shes hoping for. We are now at the halfway point of the Grand Prix season and this is where the spots for the final (six in each discipline) will begin to be locked up. Canadians are strongest in the pairs and dance this season and are on target to qualify two teams in the dance and one in the pairs. Our attention turns to Russia this weekend and the Rostelecom Cup. Canada has only a couple of entries but the Russians of course will be out in full force, except for Olympic champion Adelina Sotnikova who is now out due to injury. In the renaissance that is Russian skating, it will be fun to watch some of their new teams in both the pairs and dance as they jostle for prominence in the early stages of this Olympic quadrennial.
