RIO DE JANEIRO -- Sajedeh Norouzi jumped to her feet, both arms reached high into the air, beaming as she waved a small Iranian flag from side to side. Again and again.She waved at every chance. She waved for every woman back home who couldnt be there alongside her at Maracanazinho arena cheering for the mens volleyball team in its Olympic debut -- her first time in a sports stadium because in Iran women arent allowed to attend all-male sports events.The 27-year-old Norouzi, wearing a beautiful navy blue headscarf decorated with flowers of pink, yellow, orange and turquoise, insists she represented all of the other Iranian women Sunday night who are fighting to one day cheer their teams from the stands and not the TV. She had a purpose, and a passion, that she could release at long last sitting beside men who have been able to attend the games all along.We want to go to the stadium because the government doesnt allow us to. I want to cheer my team! Norouzi said, sitting alongside husband Saeed Javdaniyan in a lower section of seats across the court from the team benches of Iran and Argentina.She was overwhelmed by the special moment, one she couldnt have envisioned even a year ago. Even if Iran lost in straight sets.Very, very much, Norouzi said. Ive never been in the stadium.She and her husband have been in Brazil for four months to study, living in Copacabana. Norouzi called the moment for her really, really big and an important one to show support from afar for those Iranian women who wanted nothing more than to attend the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.I think so, she said, every woman wants to see the games.One of those female sports fans? A 32-year-old Iranian woman working with a group called Open Stadiums to push for access. The groups Twitter handle has become an underground voice of advocacy for women pushing to end discrimination.I really wish I could watch it in stadium. Its been very long time that I couldnt watch their matches live, she wrote to The Associated Press on Sunday, declining to be identified publicly out of concern for retaliation.From a world away, she planned to watch the match over a very early breakfast with her mother and two sisters. They were having tea and eating cheese with bread, butter and jam.The match Sunday in Rio had a scheduled start time of about 6 a.m. in Tehran, thus the early start to the day. The trip also is a challenging one for many Iranians: a 23-hour flight costing approximately $2,500.In 2012, the longtime ban on women from soccer matches in Iran was extended to volleyball. Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice last year called the ban ridiculous and said that nations that are part of international bodies should respect womens rights.Women have been fighting for months and years to change a long-standing tradition of women being barred from attending male-only sporting events in Iran -- efforts by authorities to enforce strict interpretations of Islamic norms.Its an issue that came up yet again as the 10th-ranked Iranians prepared for their first appearance in volleyball at an Olympics.For last months World League tournament at the Azadi Sport Complex in Tehran, some Iranian women unsuccessfully attempted to purchase tickets. A group trying make events more open said the tickets werent available despite multiple efforts to buy them online. From the moment tickets became available, the website for sales said the female allotment had been filled, according to several women who say they tried to purchase tickets.The International Federation of Volleyball, Switzerland-based FIVB, made a statement at the time that the Iranian federation said the first-day matches sold out within five minutes, and that 466 of the 5,000 tickets were allotted for a section set aside for women. Women were shown in the stands via livestream, but the section appeared smaller than 466 and it was unclear if the women were members of the general public or invited guests and VIPs. A female announcer handled substitutions during Irans match.Human Rights Watch and other organizations have closely tracked the situation, and the chairwoman of USA Volleyball has even been outspoken in support of the women. USA Volleyball chair Lori Okimura even brought her Let Iranian Women Enter Their Stadiums T-shirt along to Brazil.The women in Iran stay hopeful. They remain spirited about their sports teams.And, for now, those who cant actually be in Brazil are here in spirit. We say in Persian, `my soul fly for that photo of stadium! the woman behind Open Stadiums wrote. Cheap Air Max 90 . President of baseball operations Larry Beinfest was fired Friday after 12 years with the Marlins. The move came as the team neared the end of its third consecutive last-place season in the NL East. Nike Air Max 95 Clearance . Vaives lawyer Trevor Whiffen claims the former 50-goal man wasnt provided with a copy of the claim beforehand and that he would not have agreed to the allegations made against the NHL had he been asked to review its contents. http://www.airmaxclearance.us/ .J. -- Pitcher Carl Pavano is retiring after 14 major league seasons.

Tevez, who has had conflicts with coaches in the past, has not been called up since Sabella was named coach in 2011. Argentina boasts Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain, Sergio Aguero, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Angel Di Maria. In this edition of my Big Board: a new No. 1 quarterback and two Pac-12 defensive linemen make their debuts.A reminder: General scouting reports on these players wont change week to week unless my overall evaluation changes. Ill simply be updating performance notes and providing updates on key matchups to come.One asterisk denotes a junior, and two asterisks denote a redshirt sophomore for the 2016 season.1. *Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&MGarrett, still dealing with the effects of a?high ankle sprain, had a few more tackles for loss in the Aggies loss to Alabama, though he didnt?sack Jalen Hurts. Facing a really good offensive line, he still looked like one of the best players on the field. At 6-foot-5, 265 pounds, Garrett has the length, strength and ability to bend the edge. Hes a brilliant, natural pass-rusher??and is up?to 26.dddddddddddd0 career sacks. He looks like a top-five lock.2. *Leonard Fournette, RB, LSUFournette had one of those?special games in Saturdays win over Ole Miss, with 284 rushing yards and three touchdowns on just 16 carries. Thats 17.8 yards per carry.?Hes really special when hes healthy ?-- that was an issue the first half of the season, but he looks much more fluid after being limited by a gimpy ankle.?He has?an incredible combination of size, speed and power that can make him look like a varsity player hanging with the JV. Mileage was a concern heading into the season, so the ankle injury?could benefit him in NFL scouts eyes. He had a whopping 300 carries in 2015.
