Olympic leaders stopped short Sunday of imposing a complete ban on Russia from the Rio de Janeiro Games, assigning individual global sports federations the responsibility to decide which athletes should be cleared to compete.The decision, announced after a three-hour meeting via teleconference of the International Olympic Committee executive board, came just 12 days before the Aug. 5 opening of the Games.We had to balance the collective responsibility and the individual justice to which every human being and athlete is entitled to, IOC president Thomas Bach said.The IOC rejected calls from the World Anti-Doping Agency and dozens of other anti-doping bodies to exclude the entire Russian Olympic team following allegations of state-sponsored cheating.USADA CEO Travis Tygart expressed disappointment with the IOC decision in a statement.Many, including clean athletes and whistleblowers, have demonstrated courage and strength in confronting a culture of state-supported doping and corruption within Russia. Disappointingly, however, in response to the most important moment for clean athletes and the integrity of the Olympic Games, the IOC has refused to take decisive leadership, Tygart said. The decision regarding the Russians participating and the confusing mess left in its wake is a significant blow to the rights of clean athletes.Russias track and field athletes have already been banned by the IAAF, the sports governing body, a decision that was upheld Thursday by the Court of Arbitration for Sport and was accepted by the IOC again on Sunday.Calls for a complete ban on Russia intensified after Richard McLaren, a Canadian lawyer commissioned by the WADA, issued a report Monday accusing Russias sports ministry of overseeing a vast doping program of its Olympic athletes.McLarens investigation, based heavily on evidence from former Moscow doping lab director Grigory Rodchenkov, affirmed allegations of brazen manipulation of Russian urine samples at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi but also found that state-backed doping had involved 28 summer and winter sports from 2011 to 2015.But the IOC board decided against the ultimate sanction, in line with Bachs recent statements stressing the need to take individual justice into account. The IOC said the McLaren report had made no direct accusations against the Russian Olympic Committee as an institution.An athlete should not suffer and should not be sanctioned for a system in which he was not implicated, Bach told reporters on a conference call after Sundays meeting.Bach acknowledged the decision might not please everybody.This is not about expectations, he said. This is about doing justice to clean athletes all over the world.The leader of New Zealands anti-doping movement said the IOCs decision shows a lack of will to back the cord principles of their organization with hard decisions.World marathon record holder Paula Radcliffe said it is unfair of the IOC to leave it to ?individual sports to decide whether Russians should be allowed to compete in Rio.A truly strong message for clean sport would have been to ban all those who have been caught cheating, Radcliffe said in a statement posted on Twitter. In short, it does not send the clear message it could have done that doping and cheating in all Olympic sport will never be tolerated.Russian Olympic Committee president Alexander Zhukov presented his case to the IOC board at the beginning of Sundays meeting, promising full cooperation with investigations and guaranteeing a complete and comprehensive restructuring of the Russian anti-doping system.The IOC also said Russia is barred from entering for the Rio Games any athlete who has ever been sanctioned for doping.That appears to rule out swimmer Yulia Efimova, the world champion in the 100-meter breaststroke, 2012 Olympic silver-medal-winning weightlifter Tatiana Kashirina and two-time Olympic bronze-medal-winning cyclist Olga Zabelinskaya. All three have previously served a doping ban.Saying we dont have time enough to do such a thing, Zhukov said the ROC will not appeal the IOC decision to ban athletes with previous doping sanctions. Zhukov noted that he did not agree with the IOCs ruling.Zhukov does not rule out any Russian athlete filing an urgent appeal as an individual because all of them can go to CAS.In a statement, the IOC said it would accept the entry of only those Russian athletes who meet certain conditions set out for the 28 international federations to apply.?The IOC said the federations have the authority, under their own rules, to exclude Russian teams as a whole.The federations should carry out an individual analysis of each athletes anti-doping record, taking in account only reliable adequate international tests ... in order to ensure a level playing field, the IOC said.Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko said the majority of Russias team complies with IOC criteria on doping and will be able to compete in Rio.The criteria are very tough, but thats a kind of challenge for our team. ... Im sure the majority of our team will comply, Mutko said.Mutko said he accepts the criteria but adds it is not fair that former dopers from other countries can compete.Russian athletes accepted to the Olympics will be subject to a rigorous additional out-of-competition testing programme, the IOC said. Any missed test by an athlete would result in a loss of accreditation by the IOC.The International Tennis Federation said it expects Russias eight-player Olympic tennis team to compete at the Games.The IOC also rejected the application by Russian whistleblower Yulia Stepanova, the 800-meter runner and former doper who helped expose the doping scandal in her homeland, to compete under a neutral flag at the Games. However, the IOC added that it would invite her and her husband, Vitaly Stepanov, to attend the Games.Tygart said the decision to deny Stepanova an Olympics spot is incomprehensible and will undoubtedly deter whistleblowers in the future from coming forward.The IAAF had also granted neutral athlete status to Florida-based long jumper Darya Klishina. Her status was unclear after the IOCs ruling.Russia has admitted some doping violations by its athletes and coaches but denies that the government was involved. State media has painted the issue as a U.S.-led political vendetta.Russia faces a possible ban from the Paralympic Games. Citing evidence in McLarens report of doping among Russian Paralympic athletes, the International Paralympic Committee said Friday it will decide next month whether to exclude the country from the Sept. 7-18 event in Rio.The Associated Press contributed to this report.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Given how the season has played out for the Jacksonville Jaguars, its probably fitting they are on the verge of making NFL history for futility.The Jaguars (2-7) have gone nearly six games -- more than 23 quarters or 289 minutes, 21 seconds to be exact -- without a takeaway.The five-game streak is tied for the longest drought in the NFL since the 1970 merger, according to Pro Football Reference. Washington (2006), Indianapolis (2011), St. Louis (2012), Philadelphia (2012) and Baltimore (2015) also went five games without a takeaway.Jacksonville can set the mark Sunday at Detroit (5-4). Since the Lions are tied for second in the NFL with just six turnovers in nine games, the Jaguars cant count on getting any help, either.Oh, its in our heads, cornerback Aaron Colvin acknowledged. Weve got to find a way to get the ball. I feel like guys are conscious of trying to get the ball and stealing possessions, but its just not being handed to us, I can say. Sometimes with turnovers its tricky because if you start forcing it then bad things can happen and you start playing out of the defense, playing out of yourself. I really dont have any answers for you.The Jaguars, who have dropped four in a row, had never gone more than three games without a takeaway before this season.Contributing factors are a lack of consistent pass rush -- Jacksonville has four sacks in the last five games -- and rarely playing with the lead. The Jaguars have led for just 2 minutes, 49 seconds during those games.The streak should have ended two weeks ago at Kansas City and again last week against Houston .Against the Chiefs, Jaguars cornerback Prince Amukamara was in position to catch Nick Foles overthrow in the middle of the field when safety Tashaun Gipson crashed in him wwhile trying to get the pick.ddddddddddddLast week, linebacker Paul Posluszny had a bead on Brock Osweilers errant pass across the middle when teammate Malik Jackson stuck out a hand and deflected the ball away.Its more execution than bad luck, Posluszny said. Were not giving our offense the opportunities they need. Another game without a takeaway is the most disappointing part of (the game). We can play very sound fundamental defense, but we have to make plays that impact the game.It hasnt happened, and the Jaguars are minus-12 in turnover differential during the streak. Jacksonville is minus-14 on the season, last in the NFL . Coach Gus Bradleys team has just five takeaways on the season.The last one came during a 30-27 victory against Indianapolis in London on Oct. 2.Defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. came free on a line stunt and tipped Andrew Lucks pass in the first quarter. The deflected ball landed in rookie Yannick Ngakoues hands and led to a touchdown.Jacksonvilles last takeaway on American soil came Sept. 23 against Baltimore, when Fowler hit Joe Flaccos arm as he was releasing the ball. Posluszny hauled in the wobbly pass late in the fourth quarter. It led to a field-goal attempt, which was blocked, and the Jaguars ended up losing 19-17.Now, nearly two months later, the Jags on the verge of making NFL history.Weve just got to do more to get the ball out, defensive tackle Malik Jackson said. It has to be more than luck. We have to put ourselves in great positions. ... We just got to do better. Weve got to do more. Weve just got to do more, man.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys 2020 Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
