RIO DE JANEIRO -- The World Rowing Federation (FISA) is adamant every race will take place in the Olympic regatta at Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas despite Sundays programme being postponed due to windy conditions and a fault with the buoy system. 76ers Jerseys Online .Sir Steve Redgrave, Britains most decorated rower, backed the decision to postpone Sundays rowing but warned of a doomsday outcome where, if this wind continues and scheduling chaos ensues, then for the first time since the inaugural modern Olympics medals may not be awarded.The weather caused havoc on Saturday. After Serbias mens pair capsized in conditions Katherine Grainger called the worst shes ever rowed in, Sunday mornings training sessions saw two further boats flip.With gusts blowing down from the hills, the original 8.30 a.m. start time for Sundays rowing was firstly delayed by two hours but then came confirmation at 10.15 a.m. of postponement after the wind direction shifted, seeing 50 metres/second gusts causing boats unable to hold their direction and buoys shifted out of position in the lanes.It was a technical instillation issue causing the delays, FISA executive director Matt Smith said. The expected winds were above anything we expected for the cables of our buoy systems. We had cables lying in lanes. FISA say this problem is now solved.Having lost a day to the elements, Smith said the plan is to schedule the W8+ and M8+ races and M4x and W4x repechages on Monday morning from 8.30 a.m. and then slot in as many of Sundays postponed races from 9.30 a.m. until 1.30 p.m. FISA say the programme will have caught up by Wednesday but if the weather causes further delays then there is a contingency plan of extending the regatta to Sunday, Aug. 14.We are old and experienced in staging regatta, Smith added. We have a lot of tricks up our sleeve, a lot of contingency plans. We could even have two rounds on the same day, we have done that in the past. We have advanced racing in the past. With nine days, including Sunday morning, we are confident we are ready for nearly anything they can throw at us.For Redgrave, he said the rowers safety was paramount but added if these windy conditions continue, then the organisers will face a logistical nightmare to fit in every race.None of the rowers wouldve liked to have run out in that, especially the ones who have the repechages which determine whether they stay in the Olympic regatta or not, Redgrave said as a plastic chair flew off behind him. We are an outdoor sport and in outdoor sports you are open to the elements and you have to deal with that. Weve raced in conditions similar to this and there is a point you have to call it and I guarantee you that 99 percent of the athletes will be pleased.He added: The tough bit is that if this weather continues. But what were hearing is that if the programme gets delayed and delayed then the boats going through repechages may not get the chance to race in them.That is eight out of 14 categories -- so the [Team GB] womens pair and mens four wont race today and if they dont get to race until Saturday when there are perfect conditions on Saturday morning, what do you do then? Do you have the heats, the repechage, the semifinal and final in one day?Youd have 14 events. Its not going to happen, it would be cancelled. The worst case scenario is that there will not be any Olympic medals given out at this Games. So if you start that at the doom and gloom then anything better than that will be good.Team GB team leader Sir David Tanner said he was absolutely supportive of the decision to postpone Sundays racing and FISA had made completely the right call.If we look at the programme to be frank it is possible for it to be completed in fewer days than eight, Tanner said. Youve seen the sessions are relatively short and from my point of view, and our rowers would say the same, if we get a window and can get on with it, they wont argue with racing in the morning or afternoon, we could do it.

After his side dumped the Gunners out of the FA Cup quarter-finals at the Emirates on Sunday, the former Tottenham and PSV goalkeeper said Watford had been confident of stealing a victory.When you see Arsenal playing against big teams, they look like a small team, Gomes, who did not play in the fixture, told ESPN Brazil. They dont look like winning a title soon. They are not strong defensively. It is the best time to play Arsenal and we came to the match very confident.We knew once we had the ball wed be able to pass it around, since Arsenal give you too much space.
