Former world champion Peter Ebdon produced a remarkable comeback to beat Gerard Greene 10-9 and keep his hopes of qualifying for the Crucible alive. Adam Jones Jersey . The 45-year-old, who won the title in 2002, trailed Greene, who had beaten Jimmy White in the first round of qualifying, 9-3 in his World Snooker Championship qualifier but reeled off seven frames in a row to clinch victory just after 2am on Tuesday morning. A match that contained just three breaks of at least 50 came down to a final-frame safety battle with just the colours left on the table and it was Ebdon who potted the pivotal green before clearing up to move through to the final qualifying round.Two-time finalist Ali Carter came through a close and high-quality encounter with Cao Yupeng to progress to a clash with Dominic Dale, who saw off Oliver Lines 10-6.Cao had won his first-round match 10-0 against Rodion Judin and came from 7-4 down against Carter to level at 7-7. Carter then made breaks of 138 and 111, either side of an 84 from Cao, and wrapped up a 10-8 win with a 54 in frame 18.Chinas Ding Junhui had an easier time of things, rounding off a 10-1 win over Ross Muir with a break of 106.Up-and-coming pair Jack Lisowski and Kyren Wilson beat Rory McLeod and Martin ODonnell respectively but Luca Brecel was beaten 10-8 by Liam Highfield.Jamie Cope was beaten 10-5 by Liang Wenbo, Zhang Anda beat Mark Davis by the same score and Zhou Yuelong ousted Fergal OBrien 10-6.Matthew Selt lost a final-frame decider to Mitchell Mann while Dechawat Poomjaeng won 10-5 against Finlands Robin Hull.Thepchaiya Un-Nooh, who made headlines by missing the final black of a 147 attempt at the UK Championship, won 10-7 against Paul Davison.There were also wins for Matthew Stevens, Mark King, Ken Doherty and Ryan Day, the latter overcoming Alfie Burden 10-9.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- World-record holder Usain Bolt did not have nearly the fastest time in the preliminary rounds of the mens 200-meter dash, but that was partly because he slowed down so much near the finish line while leading his heat that he could have been pushing a grocery cart. Plus, the heats were relatively early, starting around noon as opposed to the late-night finals.I was a little tired, but it was a morning session and Im not a very good morning person, Bolt said. I just came out to qualify.Not surprisingly, he did so, winning his heat with a time of 20.28.That was well off his world record of 19.19 as well as the days top time of 20.09 by Canadas Andre De Grasse. It also was the 15th-fastest time of the day.The heats are not about records, though, especially for those who are fast enough that they can be confident they will advance without running their absolute fastest race.Its not about time right now. Its about getting to the straightaway, holding your form and getting to the finish line, said Justin Gatlin, who advanced to the semifinal round with a time of 20.42. If you think about time, that will get into your head too much.The scheduling of the track events has been a little odd here. The turnaround betweenn the 100-meter semifinals and final was not much more than hour, which both Bolt and Gatlin said caused them to have slower times than they had hoped. Trey Hopkins Jersey. The triple-jump final was held in the morning Tuesday, starting at 10:50 a.m., which gold medalist Christian Taylor of the U.S. said he had never experienced before.It required early-morning starts for the Olympians.Its not just the run thats tiring -- its the transportation getting to and from the athletes village to here because of the traffic, Gatlin said. You cant stay up too late, but how could I not stay up to watch the womens 400 final last night? I had to make sure I watched that, and then got right back upstairs to go to bed.Bolt, who won his third consecutive gold in the 100 on Sunday, is the favorite in the 200, and he will try to win his third gold in the 200 as well. The semifinals of the 200 are Wednesday and the final is Thursday.American LaShawn Merritt, who won bronze in the 400 on Sunday, also qualified for the 200 semis with a time of 20.15 (the fourth-best of the day), as did American Ameer Webb with a time of 20.31. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
