Cheap Jerseys  Free Shipping . -- Ricky Foley believes he made the right decision last year to leave the B. Cheap Jerseys  From China . Five-time cup winner Sevilla became the nights only topflight team to be upset by a lower-division team when third-tier Racing Santander won 2-0 in Seville to overturn a 1-0 first-leg loss.Despite all her success, Canadian rower Darcy Marquardt wont be satisfied until that final box on her checklist is crossed off. That final task, however, is the ever-elusive Olympic medal. Marquardt, 32, made her Olympic debut in 2004 in Athens, finishing just shy – 3.97 seconds to be exact – of the podium with a fourth place finish in the womens coxless pair. She returned to represent Canada in Beijing in 2008 in the coxless eight and once again came up short, finishing 0.79 seconds back of the bronze medal-winning Romanians. Marquardt and the Canadian team have made strides since that disappointing August day in Beijing and will head to London as medal favourites, having won back-to-back silver medals at the rowing world championships. But the Richmond, B.C., native is quick to dismiss those accomplishments as nothing more than a signpost of progress on the road to her final Olympic Games. "Its a checkpoint. Youve got your checklist and its a check in the box, " Marquardt said during an interview at the Canadian Olympic Committee Media Summit on Nov. 21 in Mississauga, Ont. "Check; we got a silver medal, our training is working. Check; we got a silver medal and qualified the boat for next year in London. "Its silly to say that Im not satisfied with the silver medal but the truth of the matter is that I dont have a Olympic one yet, " Marquardt said. "And thats my goal and thats why Ive come back to try one last time." Marquardt is currently one of 14 women vying for the eight seats in the Canadian boat and although she has been a fixture on the national team, she isnt taking anything for granted. "My goal isnt necessarily to get in the boat anymore.ddddddddddddIts to help it win," Marquardt said. "Whats unique about this group of women is that each of them believe the same thing. When were training against one another in practice were pushing for (a spot on the team). So theres no time to be complacent and no time to enjoy the moment of the performance. But knowing that its possible keeps us going." While Marquardt remains humble about her chances, shes about as much of a lock as there is on the Canadian team due to her vast experience – an important attribute in a team-oriented event like the womens eight. Big-stage experience is especially important when the key to Canadas success in London, according to Marquardt, rests on their ability to stay focused in the final stretch of a race. "You cant win a race in the first 500 metres. Yes, having a strong start is important but you dont have to be leading," she said. "The last 500 is the mental preparation. Were working with sports psychologists on how to deal under pressure and when another boat is coming on and how you draw that last little bit of effort." Having six-time Olympian and four-time medalist Lesley Thompson-Willie as the teams leader and coxswain will certainly help when Canada is making the final push towards the finish line in London. "She knows, shes been there, shes raced every scenario that there could be, so its an enormous amount of trust and belief in her ability and her ability to know what the crew needs to hear at a very crucial moment," Marquardt said. And no moment will be more crucial for Marquardt than the London Games – her last shot at crossing off the final task on her checklist. cheap nfl Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys cheap nfl Jerseys wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
