Roger Black believes Mo Farah deserves to be considered Great Britains greatest athlete, with or without a world record to his name. http:///...is-navy-blue-jersey/ .Farah recovered from an early fall in Saturdays 10,000 metres to claim his third Olympic gold in stunning fashion, with the possibility of a fourth awaiting in the 5,000m.His dominance over the distances has also seen him pick up multiple world and European titles as rivals from around the globe have tried and failed to unseat him.One thing the 33-year-old has not managed is besting Kenenisa Bekeles world record marks in either event but Black, a double silver medallist in Atlanta 20 years ago, thinks that is no bar to his claims on greatness.If were going to judge who are the greatest athletes, the only thing missing for Mo Farah is he doesnt hold a world record, Black told BBC Radio 5 Lives Sportsweek.But all athletes know although records are important the mark of an athlete is can you race when it matters, the Olympic final? and Mo is one of the great racers of all time.Im not sure its about records for Mo, its about medals and they are the most important things. Its corny but records are there to be broken.I dont see him getting a world record in the 10,000m or 5,000m but I dont think he needs to for us to at least talk about him as the greatest British track and field athlete of all time.How do you compare Seb Coe, Daley Thompson, Mo Farah...its a subjective question in an objective sport.But I think Mo is the best British athlete of all time.http:///...is-navy-blue-jersey/ . Thousands of fans at Mosaic Stadium will be cozying up to each other in an effort to stay warm in chilly temperatures and block the Prairie wind that locals say can knock your socks off. http:///...ia-navy-blue-jersey/ . After slipping from the summit during the week, the Gunners overcame struggling Crystal Palace 2-0 on Sunday thanks to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlains second-half brace. http:///...ck-navy-blue-jersey/ .com) - The Chicago Blackhawks aim for their third three-game winning streak of the season when they host the struggling Edmonton Oilers in Sundays battle at the United Center. Colin Kaepernicks decision to sit during the national anthem is prompting protests over a display at the Reno airport that includes memorabilia from his days at the University of Nevada, where he was a star player before being drafted by the San Francisco 49ers.An official at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport said Wednesday that the airport has received more than a hundred angry messages by phone, email and social media from locals and travelers who want Kaepernicks trophy, helmet and other memorabilia removed from the prominent display case. Others passing by have also offered disapproving hand gestures, hisses and venting in person.The toughest ones are the ones that come from veterans, said Brian Kulpin, the airports spokesman. Theres very strong feelings.Kaepernick said last week that hes refusing to stand for the national anthem because he believes the United States oppresses African Americans and other minorities. The biracial Kaepernick has been outspoken on his Twitter account on civil rights issues and in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.Kaepernick sat through the anthem during the 49ers three preseason games so far and said he intends to continue the protest during Thursday nights preseason finale in San Diego and beyond.While at Nevada, Kaepernick became the only player in NCAA history with three seasons of 2,000 yards passing and 1,000 yards rushing. He wwas drafted by San Francisco in 2011. http://www.authenticshopbroncos.com/customized/. .Kulpin said the community airport has never seen such an outcry as the one prompted by Kaepernicks things.The 20-foot-long glass display case at the airport highlights the University of Nevada in Reno, including its history and academics and sports programs. Featured in the primary concourse and visible to all passengers who go through security, Kulpin said the decorative display has always been popular, especially the Kaepernick items that were added about three years ago.Its the only thing in the public eye that is a shrine to Colin Kaepernick, Kulpin said.The displays contents are owned and managed by the university and are due for an update in the coming months. There was a brief mix-up on Monday when the Kaepernick items were removed temporarily for a cleaning and then placed back in the display.Nevada associate athletic director Chad Hartley said changes had long been planned and they are unrelated to the Kaepernick firestorm, though the school hasnt been immune to the feedback.Weve seen some messages. Weve heard from fans. But weve heard on both and all sides of the issue, Hartley said.---Follow Sally Ho at twitter.com/-sallyho.
