EUGENE, Ore. -- ?A few more kids are on their way to Brazil after Saturdays racing at the U.S. Track and Field Trials.In this case, they are 41-year-old Bernard Lagats son and daughter, Miika and Gianna.The American record-holder flipped the script on a youth-filled trials Saturday, running his final lap of the 5,000 meters in 52 seconds to charge from sixth to first and earn his fifth, and most surprising, trip to the Olympics.Lagat, who won in 13 minutes, 35.50 seconds, will have his wife, Gladys, and kids in tow on the way to Rio.Joining them there will be 34-year-old Justin Gatlin, who won the 200-meter final to advance to his third Olympics. He held off LaShawn Merritt and two high schoolers, Michael Norman and Noah Lyles, who stood as the latest examples of the growing youth movement in American track.Already, there are three 20-and-under track-and-field athletes heading to Rio -- Vashti Cunningham, Keturah Orji and Trayvon Bromell -- with 16-year-old Sydney McLaughlin trying for a 400-hurdles spot Sunday.But some of these old guys can run, too. And Lagat was determined to show hes not near finished.They were saying Im done and cannot make the team, he said. That didnt sound right to me.That talk picked up last year, when the Kenyan-born runner missed his first worlds or Olympics team since he became an American citizen in 2005 -- a failure he said crushed him, in large part because his kids were pushing hard for him to make the trip. The murmurs came back after he dropped out of the 5,000 earlier this season at the Prefontaine Classic and only got louder when he pulled out of the 10K earlier in trials.Turns out, Lagat has plenty of gas in the tank.We know Bernard Lagat will be done, said third-place finisher Paul Chelimo, when hes not running anymore.Galen Rupp, who pulled into a wide lead with two laps to go, fell behind during the final lap and finished ninth overall. He had previously qualified for Rio in the 10,000 meters and the marathon.The 200-meter final turned into quite a showdown along the stretch, with Gatlin finishing in 19.75 seconds and edging Merritt -- the 400-meter specialist whos pretty good at 200, too -- by a mere .04 seconds.?I said, You know what, if Lagat had the guts to go out there and do what he needs to do at his age, I can go out there and do what I need to do, especially from Lane 8, Gatlin said.Like Merritt, Allyson Felix remains in the mix for the 200-400 double; she made it easily through her semifinal round. Like Merritt, Felix turned 30 in the past year. And like Merritt, she is an expert at pacing herself through the rounds in multiple races.Experience means a lot, Merritt said. Its being comfortable once you get out there. Being able to use the nerves as positive energy. And knowing youve been there before and know how to handle it, it gives you a chip on your shoulder.Lagat certainly had one.Along with another incentive.My daughter said, I want you to win, Lagat said, so I can go see gymnastics. Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.? Justice Hill Youth Jersey . -- On the field, it was business as usual for Jameis Winston and No. Jonathan Ogden Jersey . -- Jacksonville wide receiver Cecil Shorts will likely be a game-time decision whether hell play Sunday in the Jaguars home game against the San Diego Chargers. . The Barrie Colts defenceman, who impressed many with his play for Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championship, is the top-ranked skater in the February rankings. He has 19 goals and 24 assists for 43 points in 45 games with the Colts this season. Justin Tucker Jersey . The No. 1-ranked Nadal tweaked his back warming up for the Australian Open final, which he lost almost four weeks ago in a major upset against Stanislas Wawrinka. His first stop after the layoff is the clay in Rio as he tests the back and tries to stay healthy for the French Open in three months. Miles Boykin Youth Jersey . Their 38th instalment is arguably their biggest fight card to date, including three-title fights and a main event which was selected by the fans. The promotion boasts 14-straight years of business and is operated by MFC president Mark Pavelich, who is often overlooked in this country for the foundation hes established for MMA in Canada. South Korea, meet Overwatch, the next big thing in esports. Overwatch, meet South Korea, the best competitive gaming nation on the planet. After a weekend in Anaheim together, it seems the two have come to know each other well.The South Korean Overwatch World Cup team swept the competition to win the exhibition tournament, making itself known to the Western audience at BlizzCon this past weekend. The staunch South Korean defense prevented any country throughout the group and bracket stages from taking a map from the team, and the six-man squad eventually roasted Russia in one of the most lopsided finals imaginable. It was a long list of zeroes for the underdog Russians who dropped four straight games to South Korea in the best-of-seven climax.Following the teams resounding win, ESPN caught up with the teams star tank and overall tournament MVP, Gong Miro Jin-hyuk, to get his thoughts on BlizzCon and the future of Overwatch as an esport.Im speechless on how incredibly amazing it is [to win and be MVP], said Miro. The fact that there are so many players and I got it as a tank, I think its super amazing.Miro wowed live and home audiences with his frightening Winston play throughout the tournament. Regarded as the best Winston and tank player in the world, Miro stayed stuck on the opposition from the group stages to the final match against Russia, always allowing his offensive talents to get the room necessary to rack up the kills to secure objective points. His perfect timing of Primal Rage allowed him access to the key members of the opponent, and it let Miro disrupt any sort of cohesion the enemy might have had.Although it seemed like South Koreas tear through the bracket may have been based on a higher skill level overall relative to the rest of the world, Miro has a slightly different take on it.Skill-wise, I think [Europe, South Korea, and North America] are pretty much the same, he said. Except, NA and EU dont use Winston as much as Koreans do, so aside from [myself], theree are a lot of Korean tanks who use Winston a lot more often.dddddddddddd I think that might be the difference.Currently, Overwatch is still in its infancy as a competitive title, with the exhibition tournament being one of the first tournaments to attain significant viewership numbers. While South Koreas Ongamenet has begun its APEX tournament and other leagues have popped up across the globe, there is still no set hierarchy between teams, players, or even regions. Everyone is still trying to figure one another out, with a majority of club tournaments coming down to small mistakes to decide outcomes instead of one or two teams ruling the field.With South Koreas long history in esports, we asked which players Miro grew up respecting before he got his chance at making a name for himself in the competitive scene.For [StarCraft:] Brood War, it was Lee Flash Young-ho I looked up to, and for League of Legends, its Lee Faker Sang-hyeok and Jang MaRin Gyeong-hwan.As Miro returns home to South Korea, his club team Lunatic-Hai will continue to contend for the APEX championship amongst fifteen of the other best teams in the world, including four non-South Korean squads such as NRG Esports and Rogue. L-H already has one win from its opening group stage, and another victory against each CONBOX T6 or Mighty Storm would put them almost certainly in the quarterfinals for a chance at the overall prize of $90,000 for the ultimate winner. Miro will be joined on Lunatic-Hai by World Cup teammates Ryu ryujehong Je Hong and Kim EscA In-jae in their quest to prove themselves the worlds strongest club.There is a lot of backing from Blizzard, and if more people come out and have all these super plays, I definitely see the potential of [Overwatch] to get bigger [as an esport]. Including [my own], I wish more super [highlight] plays will come from others to [grow the game]. ' ' '
