Adam Ramanauskas has urged Hawthorn fans to temper their expectations of an early-season AFL return for Jarryd Roughead.Ramanauskas, another AFL player well-known for his cancer battle, said Roughead must be patient with his comeback.The 2000 Essendon premiership player made the comments on Tuesday morning, before Roughead revealed he is now cancer free.While Roughead can now consider an AFL comeback, he is putting no timeline on when he might play again.And Ramanauskas says that is a smart move.What can happen, if he pushes it too hard, too early, that can be a major setback for weeks at a time, not just a day or two, Ramanauskas told RSN radio on Tuesday.I think hes out there, hes enjoying training and hes seeing how it goes.Theres a lot of issues around getting your heart-rate too elevated in the early stages of his recovery. Hell need to be very, very mindful of that.Ramanauskas has been an advocate for cancer-sufferers since he was diagnosed with a tumour in 2003 before recovering to return to senior football.He said it was up to Roughead and doctors to determine his workload, but his own progress back to health was slow.Theres no real hard and fast rules about what you can and cant do, Ramanauskas said.So itll be really up to Jarryd to say, yeah, I feel good, I can keep going or no, Im not feeling good at these stages.I know for myself when I came back from cancer, there were just periods where I trained for a couple of days and have to have two or three days off training just because you would exhaust yourself.Rougheads teammates are hoping the star forward may be available for round one in 2017 as he returned to pre-season training on Monday.He missed the 2016 season, first because of a knee injury.Roughead then received the devastating news that a melanoma had spread to other parts of his body.Despite being a premiership player with Essendon, Ramanauskas is most remembered for his brave battle with cancer and his lion-hearted return to football.

EUGENE, Ore. -- Allyson Felix, perhaps the biggest name in womens track and the owner of four Olympic gold medals and two silvers, has been to three Olympics with a fourth already secured in Rio by qualifying in the womens 400 meters earlier at the U.S. track and field trials. Jenna Prandini, meanwhile, has never been to the Olympics and failed to qualify in the 100 meters.Which made the finish in Sundays womens 200 final very interesting. And the wait to see the official results that much more agonizing.When the two crossed the finish line behind winner Tori Bowie and second-place Deajah Stevens, it was so close it wasnt immediately clear who had finished third to secure the final qualifying spot. Would Felix get to compete in the 200 for the fourth time at the Olympics and try for her fourth medal in the event? Or would Prandini realize her dream?I wasnt sure, Felix said. I just knew I gave all I had and leaned at the line.I was just hoping that was enough to get me on the team. It felt like a really long time, Prandini said. When the result finally showed on the board, I was overwhelmed with excitement.The photo finish showed Prandini had finished third by one one-hundredth of a second. She did so after having stumbled forward just before the line.It wasnt something that I intentionally did, but Im happy that it happened because it got me here, Prandini said. I knew that Allyson was coming, but II just wanted to get to that finish line and do whatever it took to get on this team.ddddddddddddThis will be the first Olympics that Felix hasnt competed in the 200. She raced in both the 100 and 200 at the 2012 Olympics in London, winning gold in the 200 and finishing fifth in the 100. She also won gold in the 4x100 and 4x400 relays to become the first woman to win three golds in track in one Olympics since Florence Griffith-Joyner in 1988.This year, she decided to try for a different double in the 200 and 400. It was unclear whether Felix would be able to qualify in either because of a right ankle injury she suffered a few months ago while training.She qualified in the 400, blazing past the other runners down the stretch to win with a time of 49.68. So despite missing out on the 200, she still has that.I hate that shes not on the team in 200, but she made the team in the 400, said Bowie, who also qualified for the U.S. team in the 100. She still has something to look forward to.Felix said she would not run any races before the Olympics, instead using the time to rest her body and recover.Ill just take the time we have to get back and perfect the 400, she said. I mean, the speed just wasnt there today. When I give all I have and I run 22.50, the speed just wasnt there. ' ' '
