RIO DE JANEIRO -- Before racing in the womens Paralympic triathlon Sunday, U. DeMarcus Cousins Pelicans Jersey .S. athletes Allysa Seely, Hailey Danisewicz and Melissa Stockwell talked about it being the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. They had hopes of hearing the U.S. national anthem from the podium.They all did, after sweeping the medals in the PT2 class in triathlons Paralympic debut. Grace Norman also won gold in the womens PT4 class.Its a great day for America, said Danisewicz, who won silver, finishing 48 seconds behind Seelys winning time of 1 hour, 22 minutes and 55 seconds. On some very, very small level, it proves that Americans have a really great spirit and that whatever setbacks, challenges, obstacles come our way, (we) can rise from the fire.Stockwell lost her leg to a roadside bomb in Iraq in 2004, becoming the first female American soldier to lose a limb in active combat. On Sunday, she finished third in 1:25:24.When it got really tough out there I thought of those that gave the ultimate sacrifice and didnt make it back, Stockwell said. They pushed me to the finish -- just wanting to give my thanks to them.Seely and Danisewicz, both first-time Paralympians, greeted Stockwell at the finish line, waving an American flag as the teammates collapsed into an embrace.Stockwell, a three-time paratriathlon world champion considered a favorite to win this event, had no complaints about her bronze performance. She competed in swimming in the 2008 Paralympics but did not medal.Everything was worth it, she said Sunday, draped with an American flag. I would not go back for one second, for one minute. This is the culmination of everything.---This story has been corrected to show that the first name of Danisewicz is spelled Hailey, not Haley.---Emily Greenwood is a journalism student at the University of Georgia. Penn State and Georgia are partnering with The Associated Press to supplement coverage of the 2016 Paralympics. Custom New Orleans Pelicans Jerseys . PAUL, Minn. Kendrick Perkins Pelicans Jersey . Neymar curled home a free kick from just outside the area to put the 2014 World Cup host ahead in the 44th minute. Three minutes after the break, a simple through pass from Paulinho freed Oscar and the Chelsea star rounded goalkeeper Jung Sung-ryong to extend Brazils lead. http:///...ins-Pelicans-Jersey/. The 15th-ranked Canadian men lost the opening two games of their European tour: 19-15 to No. 17 Georgia and 21-20 to No. With 27 points, 18 rebounds and 14 assists against the New York Knicks in a 112-103 win Monday, Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook is now averaging a triple-double and doing so later in the season than any player has since Oscar Robertson in 1963-64.Westbrook is averaging 30.9 points, 10.3 rebounds and 11.3 assists in 19 games this season. He is one of only five players in NBA history to average a triple-double more than five games into the season.Winning is sustainable, Westbrook said of averaging a triple-double for the season. My job is to go out and find the best way to win games. Right now, we won three straight, and that is the most important to me.The only player to average a triple-double over the course of a full season was Robertson, who posted 30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and 11.4 assists per game in the 1961-62 season. The era Robertson played in featured much faster-paced games, with around 25 more possessions, 30 more available rebounds and 30 more shot attempts per game.Its amazing what hes doing, Thunder coach Billy Donovan said of Westbrook. Theres also a part of it that hes probably the most unique player in the NBA because youve got great scorers, great assist guys, great rebounders. There are a lot of great players in this league. But he kind of touches it all in every facet of the game. He gets those numbers, but theres so much more to him than that to me, as a coach.Westbrook posted his triple-double Monday -- his third consecutive -- in less than 20 minutes. That made it the second fastest of his career. (He had one in 17 minutes, 35 seconds last season.) In 1955, Jim Tucker had a triple-double in a game in which he played 17 minutes. Tuckers feat is believed to be the fastest ever; however, due?to play-by-play restrictions, it cant be known -- before the 1996-97 seasson -- when in games a triple-double would have been recorded. Kendrick Perkins Jersey. Westbrook has eight triple-doubles this season, with the rest of the NBA combining for eight. The Knicks, by comparison, have had seven triple-doubles as a franchise since 1992.I dont really care, honestly, man, Westbrook said of his historic numbers. I just like to win and compete at a high level, play the same way every night. Ive been playing the same way since I got in the league, so I just do the same thing, and [Im] grateful to be blessed and play the game I love.Mondays triple-double was the 45th of Westbrooks career, which ties him with LeBron James for sixth all time. The Thunder are 39-6 when Westbrook records a triple-double, including 6-2 this season.You cant always expect to get numbers and win, Donovan said. It doesnt work like that. Theres more to it than that. The thing Im encouraged by is when he does what he did tonight and we win. Does what he did against Detroit and we win. Theres certain times when [a player] goes off and gets crazy numbers, and his team loses. Winning is the most important thing to Russell. And he knows that his assists, his rebounds and his scoring, being efficient, helps our team win.Robertson is the only player in NBA history to enter December averaging a triple-double. Westbrook and the Thunder have one more game in November, at home against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday. He needs just four rebounds to be averaging a triple-double heading into December, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.I can do a lot of things better, Westbrook said. Every night I will watch film and find ways to be better, even as a leader.ESPNs Ian Begley contributed to this report. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
