  • IOC: Chinese swimmer was tested

    LONDON — The IOC is weary of the doping innuendos being leveled against 16-year-old Chinese swimmer Ye Shiwen.
    She broke the world record in winning gold in the 400-meter medley, and her performance has been critiqued since, most recently by executive director of the World Swimming Coaches Association John Leonard.
    Asked Tuesday about the allegations, IOC spokesman Mark Adams would not specifically address Leonard’s comments. But he seemed tired of the talk about Ye.
    “I think we need to get real here,” he said during the daily briefing. “I mean, these are world-class athletes competing at the very highest level with records being broken all over the place.”
    Adams also said Ye was tested after winning the gold.

  • Martinson picks up 6-shot...

    It was another huge showing at the Los Alamos City Championship for Tami Martinson.
    Martinson grabbed her fourth consecutive City title this weekend at Los Alamos Golf Course. Martinson carded the two low rounds of the women’s title flight, shooting an 81 Sunday to win the title.
    The City Championship was played Saturday and Sunday. More than 50 players took part in this year’s competition.
    Martinson, who has been dominant in City competition since she began her impressive title run, won by six shots over Ellen Stallings. Stallings, who played Martinson’s group Sunday, nearly kept pace with Martinson, shooting an 82. Stallings finished as this year’s runner-up.

    LA All-Stars finish in third place

    The Los Alamos Little League 9/10 All-Stars bowed out of the state baseball tournament with a 10-7 loss Thursday night.
    The loss to Carlsbad ended a solid run by Los Alamos in the tournament, which was played in Portales. Los Alamos picked up two straight wins to advance to the semifinals, but was topped by Albuquerque Eastdale in the semifinal round and Carlsbad in Thursday’s elimination game.
    Los Alamos finished the tournament in third place.
    “The Eastdale team is really good,” Los Alamos manager Lance Eaton said. “Against Carlsbad, we just made too many mistakes. We actually out-hit them, but just had some mistakes. That’s Little League baseball.”

  • Anast, Martinson lead after day...

    With a big opening round in the men’s championship flight, Kurt Anast will head into today’s play as the man to catch.
    Anast had the low round of the tournament Saturday, a red-hot 3-under par to take the day-one lead at the Los Alamos City Championship.
    The City Championship will continue at 9 a.m. today. The tournament is being played at Los Alamos Golf Course.
    Scores from the tournament were all over the place Saturday, with a 14-stroke spread in the men’s title flight and a 21-shot spread in the senior men’s flight. Early last week, a leak had been detected in an underground pipe that feeds LAGC’s front nine holes and watering the course has been an issue — work begins to repair the leak Monday.

  • Topes Notes 07-27-12

    Express takes 3-2 win
    The Albuquerque Isotopes managed just two runs Thursday off Round Rock pitchers Zach Jackson and Yoshinori Tateyama, falling 3-2 on the road.
    Jackson (4-12) scattered six hits over 7-2/3 innings to pick up the victory for Round Rock. Albuquerque couldn’t provide much support for starting pitcher Will Savage (10-4), who pitched seven strong innings.
    Thursday’s loss, combined with an extra-innings win by Oklahoma City over Iowa, ties the two teams for the top spot in the PCL American Southern division.
