RIO DE JANEIRO -- Hot favorite Almaz Ayana suddenly slumped in the final stages, allowing Vivian Cheruiyot of Kenya to surge past and win the womens 5,000 meters in an Olympic record on Friday.That gave Cheruiyot revenge for her second-place finish behind the Ethiopian in the 10,000 meters a week ago.Cheruiyot timed her attack with less than two laps to go, suddenly closing a big gap Ayana had opened and speeding away for gold in 14 minutes 26.17 seconds, just over 14 seconds better than the previous Olympic mark. It was the 32-year-old Cheruiyots first Olympic gold after a silver and a bronze at the London Games and that silver behind in the 10,000 in Rio.Fellow Kenyan Hellen Obiri also beat world champion Ayana to take the silver in a personal record 14:29.77.Ayana, who broke the world record in winning the 10,000 on the opening day of track and field at the Rio de Janeiro Games, finished third in 14:33.59. All three medalists crossed inside the former Olympic record of 14:40.79 set by Romanias Gabriela Szabo at the Sydney Olympics in 2000.Not surprisingly, the five top finishers were all from Kenya or Ethiopia.The 24-year-old Ayana, who was completely dominant in the 10,000, was expected to challenge Ethiopian compatriot Tirunesh Dibabas world record of 14:11.15 in the 5,000 final. Halfway through the race she had taken control after an early break by Japans Miyuki Uehara and opened a big gap on the chasing pack.But, on a warm night in Rio, she suddenly tired and Cheruiyot breezed past, sinking Ayanas bid for a 5,000-10,000 double at her first Olympics.Nikki Hamblin, the runner whose act of sportsmanship alongside American Abbey DAgostino in the 5,000 meters heats warmed hearts at the Olympics, finished last in the final in 16:14.24 -- still a personal best for the New Zealand athlete.I went out there and I tried to compete, I tried as hard as I could, Hamblin said. I hung on for a while and then the move came and I didnt have the legs.DAgostino didnt run in the final because of a knee injury.The two were involved in one of the feel-good moments of the games when they collided in their heat and both tumbled. DAgostino first helped Hamblin to her feet and encouraged her to finish the race. The American then realized she had sustained a bad knee injury. Hamblin returned the favor by helping her, and DAgostino finished the race while grimacing in pain with torn knee ligaments.Both runners were given a place in Fridays final because of the collision. Jose Reyes Jersey . -- Most satisfying to Russ Smith about No. Keith Hernandez Jersey .ca. Kerry, Just watched the shootout in the Coyotes/Leafs game and I have to ask, why was the James van Riemsdyk goal allowed to count? All of the video replays we were shown on TV were inconclusive about whether the puck had entirely crossed the line or not. http://www.metsrookiestore.com/Mets-Tom-Seaver-Kids-Jersey/ . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Neil Walker Jersey . LOUIS -- Mike Smith is used to facing plenty of shots, so this was nothing new. New York Mets Jerseys . -- Jacksonville wide receiver Cecil Shorts will likely be a game-time decision whether hell play Sunday in the Jaguars home game against the San Diego Chargers.MILWAUKEE -- Clayton Kershaw scattered three singles in his second complete game of the year and Matt Kemp hit his first home run since April 24, lifting the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 3-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday night. Ryan Braun managed a pair of singles and Yuniesky Betancourt also singled for the only hits off Kershaw (5-2). The lefty struck out five and walked one. Andre Ethier homered and tripled for the last-place Dodgers before being ejected by plate umpire Dan Bellino for arguing a called third strike in the eighth inning. The victory was a respite for Dodgers manager Don Mattingly. He addressed speculation before the game on whether he would be fired this week, insisting he didnt feel as if he was about to be replaced. Yovani Gallardo (3-4) gave up three runs, including two homers, in six innings. The right-hander lost his third consecutive start and the reeling Brewers have dropped 15 of 18 games. With the Dodgers bullpen giving up 12 runs while Los Angeles was swept in a three-game weekend series at Atlanta, Mattingly took no chances. He sent Kershaw out for the ninth, and the ace needed only 10 pitches to retire the Brewers in order. Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said before thee game he thought Kemps lack of power this season was due to the sluggers off-season surgery on his left shoulder.dddddddddddd The star centre fielder hit his second homer of the season, connecting for the first time in a span of 87 at-bats. Kemps solo homer came in the sixth. Colletti said his team, second-to-last in the majors in scoring at 3.4 runs per game, needed to hit better in the clutch. The Dodgers went 0 for 6 with runners in scoring position against the Brewers. Kershaw beat the Brewers for the second time in five starts. He has given up only three earned runs in 39 2-3 innings for an 0.68 ERA in that span. Kemp, who hit 116 homers the past four seasons, walked to lead off the second and scored easily on Ethiers triple for a 1-0 lead. The Brewers tied it in the third. Rickie Weeks walked and later scored on a groundout to second by Norichika Aoki. Ethiers solo homer, his fourth, put the Dodgers ahead in the fourth.
