Ross Murdoch led the way with a gold medal as Britains swimmers enjoyed another successful night at the European Championships in London. The Great Britain squad are in heavy training throughout the competition at the Aquatics Centre as they prepare for the Rio Olympics but that did not prevent them from winning five medals on Thursday night. As well as Murdochs gold, Jazz Carlin claimed silver in the 800m freestyle, Siobhan OConnor took silver and Hannah Miley bronze in the 200m individual medley, while Kathleen Dawson secured a bronze in the 100m backstroke.Murdoch held off a late charge from world champion Marco Kock of Germany to win gold in the 200m breaststroke, clocking two minutes 8.33 seconds to win by 0.07 seconds.But, such is Britains strength in depth in the event, Murdoch did not manage to earn Olympic selection at the 200m, although he qualified alongside world champion Adam Peaty for the 100m.At the minute, Rios not happening for me in the 200m breaststroke because I failed to qualify, he said.Thats why Britains one of the best swimming nations in the world, because weve got the hardest qualification processes.I always knew I was world class in this event. Kathleen Dawson (right) finished third behind Mie Oe Nielsen Carlin was defending champion over 800m but had to settle for silver in 8:23.52 behind Boglarka Kapas of Hungary, who won in 8:21.40.I wouldve loved to have got the gold, but I raced tough, said Carlin. Its about working hard. Youll get those close races in Rio.OConnor produced a great swim to clock 2:09.03 in the 200m individual medley as she finished second to Hungarys Katinka Hosszu (2:07.30), with Miley third in 2:11.84.This is my favourite event and Im really happy with that time, said OConnor. This medal gives me a lot of confidence ahead of Rio.And Dawson bagged something of a surprise bronze, finishing behind Denmarks Mie Oe Nielsen in a time of 59.68.

Sure, Josh Browns 45-yard field goal on the third drive of overtime lifted the New York Giants to a 23-20 win over Detroit on Sunday. But the Lions (7-8) dropped themselves out of the NFC North race by losing five of their last six games, blowing fourth-quarter leads in each setback. Corey Moore Jersey . Raonic, the mens No. 8 seed from Thornhill, Ont., needed more than three hours to overcome Frenchman Gilles Simon 4-6, 6-3, 2-6, 6-2, 7-5 and become the first Canadian man into the fourth round at Roland Garros.Casey Haerther hit his fifth homer of the year and starter Ethan Hollingsworth got his first win in front of the Shaw Park crowd, as the Goldeyes beat the Kansas City T-Bones 5-3 in front of 5,078 on a chilly Canada Day afternoon. With the victory, the Fish won their sixth straight (theyve won nine of 10), improved to 29-14 on the season and tightened their stranglehold on first place in the American Associations North Division. “This team is firing on all cylinders right now,” said Haerther, who had two hits in four trips and raised his batting average to a league-leading .392. “Ive played on some good teams, but I dont remember many like this. Were pitching well, hitting well and guys are playing great defense. “And it doesnt feel streaky. It feels like were just going out there and playing and when the guys do what they do, we win.” Kansas City opened the scoring with a run in the first, but the Goldeyes answered with a pair of runs in the bottom of the inning. In fact, the first four Goldeyes in the lineup hit safely. Tyler Kuhn led off with a single, Josh Mazzola followed with a single, Haerther drove home Kuhn with a single and RRay Sadler drove home Mazzola with another single.dddddddddddd Haerther homered in the third to make it 3-1 and then, with two out in the sixth, a solo homer by Reggie Abercrombie made it 4-1 and an RBI double by Ryan Pineda drove home Brock Bond with the fifth Goldeyes run. Kansas City scored a pair in the seventh, but Brendan Lafferty and Chris Kissock came on to shut the door in the eighth and ninth innings and the Goldeyes opened this three-game series with Kansas City with a victory. Hollingsworth (2-0, 2.55 ERA) picked up the win for Winnipeg. Meanwhile, K.C. starter Andy Noga (0-3, 4.53 ERA) suffered the loss. Kissock picked up his team-leading ninth save. “I used my two seam and four seam fastballs and just got ahead of the hitters,” said Hollingsworth. “I really didnt throw very many off-speed pitches. I just used the fastball and got some great defense behind me.” The Goldeyes and T-Bones will play Game 2 of this three-game series on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. Chris Salamida (3-3, 4.53 ERA) will get the start for Winnipeg, while Rick Zagone (6-1, 5.40 ERA) will take to the hill for Kansas City.
