BRUSSELS -- With the Van Damme Memorial celebrating its 40th year, Olympic champion Almaz Ayana will be looking to get the party going with a world record in the 5,000 meters. Miguel Sano Jersey .The meet is named after Belgian middle distance runner Ivo Van Damme, who died at age 22 a few months after winning two silver medals at the 1976 Montreal Games. Since then, it has become one of the most popular and best attended events on the athletics calendar with huge crowds and a spate of world records.Sebastian Coe, now the president of the IAAF, set the first world record at the famed track in 1981 with a blistering run over the mile. Ayana will be looking to add one more on Friday.Besides the Ethiopian runners world-record quest, the expected capacity crowd of 50,000 at the King Baudouin Stadium is set to give one of the loudest cheers when the Belgian womens 4x100 relay team receives the 2008 Olympic gold medals after Russia was stripped of the title this year for doping.On the opening morning of the Olympic track program last month in Rio de Janeiro, Ayana set one of the most stunning world records in decades when she shaved almost half a minute off the quarter-century-old 10,000 mark of Chinese runner Wang Junxia. Her stamina was unmatched and, at the time, it looked like she would shatter the 5,000 mark with equal ease during the final weekend of the Rio Games.Ayana left the pack standing after one third of that race, but over the last kilometer, when no one expected it, she slumped as fatigue caught up with her and she had to fight hard to take bronze.On Friday, she will need to push hard to make her last 5,000 of the season count. She is chasing the eight-year-old mark of 14 minutes, 11.15 seconds, held by Ethiopian great Tirunesh Dibaba. She already came close with the second best mark of all time in Rome in June, but a bad alignment of pacesetters did her in.After Rio, she went to rest and recover, meet organizer Wilfried Meert said. She will go for the record one more time. Its Dibabas record. It is not an easy one.Ambitiously, the Van Damme organizers are even looking for a second world record in the mens steeplechase, with Olympic champion Conseslus Kipruto going for the record of 7:53.63, which Saif Saaeed Shaheen set at the King Baudouin Stadium a dozen years ago.At 21, Kipruto has the impetuousness of youth, but considering he has never broken the 8 minute mark, it will be a tall order. On several of his biggest wins and best times, though, he did not run full-out to the tape. He will on Friday.There are no easy record attempts, Meert said.One thing speaks in favor of all potential record breakers -- the weather. Often so fickle in Belgium, its expected to be balmy and dry for ideal running conditions.---Follow Raf Casert on Twitter at http://twitter.com/rcasert Byung-Ho Park Jersey . Batiste, who briefly signed with the Eskimos in 2006, has spent time with several NFL teams including the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins. Custom Minnesota Twins Jerseys . The Olympic champion curler and TSN curling analyst immediately went online to look at the Halls long list of honoured members. Thats when the enormity of the honour sunk in. http://www.baseballtwinsprostore.com/twins-harmon-killebrew-jersey/ . - After leading the Saints to a fourth playoff appearance in five seasons, Drew Brees expressed confidence in the direction of his team and, perhaps more importantly, showed a willingness to listen to contract proposals if the team needs his help getting under the NFLs salary cap. Its the obvious question that most AFL fans are asking now Adelaide have emerged as a genuine premiership threat.How good would the Crows be if Patrick Dangerfield had stayed?Or, to put it another way, how well are they going without him?The former Crow has taken his game to new heights in 2016, standing alone as Brownlow Medal favourite at odds not dissimilar to the ones enjoyed by winner Nat Fyfe last year.Its impossible to say the Crows wouldnt be a better side without the 26-year-old in it, but its not a question anyone at West Lakes is keen to entertain.Weve moved into a different space now, coach Don Pyke said.Weve got guys who have come in and relished the opportunity thats been presented.To be honest, theyre playing their role and playing it really well. We look forward.Pyke is hoping that his team without their former champion can grow into a champion team, and on the evidence of the past two months, theyre well on the way.The Crows are the leagues form side after notcching seven-straight victories including three over finals-bound sides. Brian Dozier Jersey. .There was scarcely a poor performance on the field; even the teams lowest ball-getters played a role.Charlie Cameron and Mitch McGovern only had nine touches each but Cameron had seven tackles and McGovern kicked a classy snap when the contest was hot.McGovern could be the man most to benefit from Dangerfields departure, debuting in round one and playing every match this season.He hasnt stopped to consider the alternate reality where Dangerfield might have made a different choice.We dont think about it at all, he said.It was a big talking point last year but to the credit of the boys, weve filled the spot really well and you can see the benefits on the scoreboard.We had 10 individual goalkickers (against Carlton).We know were a good attacking side ... we all chip in. Cheap Jerseys 2020 Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China China NFL Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '
