|SOCHI, Russia -- Ukrainian Olympic chief Sergei Bubka said he has "great sympathy" with the desire of his athletes to wear black armbands to remember those killed in the political unrest in Kyiv. Wil Myers Jersey . But he says it was agreed "after consultation with the IOC" that wearing armbands would not be in line with the Olympic Charter. "Both parties agreed that another way of allowing Ukraine athletes to mark their respects should be found," he said, adding that athletes on the team had observed a minute of silence in the Olympic Village and issued statements or gave interviews about the crisis. Bubka, a pole vault great, issued a statement Thursday following "erroneous reports" that he had prevented athletes from wearing armbands. The International Olympic Committee denied that it had received a request from the Ukrainians to wear armbands during the games. Ukrainian skier Bogdana Matsotska withdrew from the Sochi Olympics in response to the deaths of anti-government protesters in Ukraine. Bubka has urged Ukrainian athletes to remain in Sochi as a sign of unity. But he has also said he respects the rights of athletes to make their own decision.

He made an exception for the Cadillac Championship, and it made perfect sense. And not just because snow is in the forecast at home in Wisconsin. This is the 20-year anniversary of the first time Stricker played the Blue Monster at Doral. Now it seems as if hes on a blind date. "You know youre at Doral, but it doesnt feel anything like it," Stricker said Tuesday. "A few holes, they havent changed. But then you step up there, and 80 per cent of them look different from the tee." And that was before he saw the Trump helicopter in all its glory to the left of the 10th tee. "Isnt that something?" Stricker said. "That was probably the first thing they built, that helipad." Donald Trump bought Doral and is putting a golden touch on the resort, which includes the Blue Monster (now officially known as Trump National Doral). He brought in Gil Hanse, the architect who is designing the Olympic golf course in Rio, for a makeover the likes of which the PGA Tour has never seen. Some things havent changed — the tropical warmth, and jetliners soaring over the golf course every minute as they descend on Miami International Airport. Trump didnt get the flight patterns changed. Not yet, anyway. But with few exceptions, its a brand new course. Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano of Spain is in his first year on the PGA Tour. He only moved to Miami in December. He has played Doral four times, making this the one course he knows better than the other 68 players in the field, who are getting to know it for the first time. "Thats the feeling I have everywhere I go," he said. "Now they know how I feel." The opening hole used to be one of the easiest par 5s on tour. A big tee shot in the fairway would leave a short iron into the green for the second shot. Making par felt like losing a shot to the field. Stricker played a practice round with Jim Furyk, a past champion at Doral. Furyk hit a tee shot down the middle and had his head down as he walked toward the ball. Finally, he looked at his next shot — just under 260 yards to go, down and to the right with water wrapping around the right side of the green and bunkers dotting the landscape. "Wow," Furyk said. "Youre going to be saying that a lot today," Stricker told him. Whether the changes are for the better wont be known until Thursday when the scores count, and even then the opinions will vary. Odds are the player with a 68 might have a different answer from the gguy who shot 75. Erick Aybar Jersey. Its longer and stronger. Perhaps the biggest change on any section of the golf course is the 15th and 16th holes. The par-3 15th is only about 150 yards, but water wraps around all but the far right side of the green. Jordan Spieth hit an 8-iron to the far back of the green. It landed about six paces from the back and wound up down the bank and into the water. The short par-4 16th is a driver over the water, unless a player chooses to lay up with an iron to the right. Spieth was stunned to learn the lake wasnt there before. This is one time the 20-year-old Texan has an advantage. He knows the course about as well as anyone, which is not very well at all. "Everyones experience is gone," Stricker said. As for Tiger Woods? He is a four-time champion at Doral. He often talks about putting from memory, which will do him little good on a course where the greens have been redone. The shape of some holes is entirely different. There are slopes on the greens that werent there before. Woods was not at Doral on Tuesday, and the tournament was still awaiting word on whether the lower back injury that led him to withdraw from the Honda Classic on Sunday will be healed enough to play. If he does, hell get one practice round on the Blue Monster before he defends his title. "Its going to be a bit of a shock to him, I think because its just such a different look," Jason Day said. Justin Rose, who won at Doral two years ago, would rather a course go through a massive overhaul than just a few tweaks. This was an overhaul. Trees are gone. Others have been planted. There are bunkers where there had been grass (left of No. 3). There is water where there wasnt water. "So you dont get the sense of being on the same golf course," Rose said. "I think if they had just reworked the greens and everything else looked identical, that might mess with your instincts more. But I think you really just view this as a new golf course. I didnt bring my yardage book from the past number of years. So its a clean sheet." The busiest guys all week have been the caddies. Jimmy Johnson, who works for Stricker, went back to the course Monday evening after a practice round to study. He normally would have been out there by himself. But when he arrived at the par-5 eighth hole — a completely different look with carry-over water for the second shot — he found three other caddies and joined them in stepping off the yardage for the best place to lay up. "It took us 40 minutes," he said. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
