races (run early in the season), hes averaged 10.6.Kyle Lar Antworten

In her second exclusive column for ESPN, Australian Olympian Emily Seebohm opens up about those who have inspired her as she gets set to race for gold in Rio de Janeiro.Im incredibly lucky to have so much support in my life, and its thanks to all those who are close to me that Im in the position Im in. Without them, thered be no way Id be in Rio chasing gold.To be honest, if I didnt go down the swimming path, Id love to have been a netballer -- I found it really fun in my younger days because its so different. As a team sport, you get to hang out together, and with swimming, its just you.But I do love swimming, and one of my big inspirations is Ian Thorpe. Hes had such an amazing career -- hes won the most Olympic gold medals in Australias history -- but thats not the whole story.Ive heard him speak about the challenges he faced during his career, and I think I know that feeling; starting so young with swimming and basically growing up in front of the camera. Its interesting hearing his take on his career, and from my side, seeing the media take on his life, its almost two completely different stories.Of course, my family is my strongest support network. Mum taught me to swim when I was a little kid; she, as well as dad and two of my brothers, are in Rio, which is great. I love knowing theyre here -- its nice having that support, and you can almost feel that energy coming through.Another major influence on my life is my partner in crime Mitch Larkin [a mens swimmer who is also on the Australian Olympic team]. It is so nice having him with me in Rio because hes a little bit of home while were on the other side of the world. Its so great that we get to share our experiences and we can talk about them with someone who truly gets it.As a couple, we have to make it up as we go along; during the year, were often in different countries and its really hard being away from him as theres not a lot of one-on-one time, so that makes it a challenge. But its really special when we do get to spend time together.Mitch has actually been really helpful because we draw from each other a lot, and its great for our swimming, but we can also get away from the pressure of the sport when we can and we can talk about everything outside of swimming.So what happens if one of us is successful and the other isnt at Rio? Of course, were both extremely competitive, but we both respect each other so much that it wouldnt matter if one of us did better because of the bond we have. Weve spoken about it and we know its a possibility -- weve just got to deal with it if and when we come to it.In saying that, itd be a dream if we both achieved the goals we set out to. Weve both put in enough hard work, so hopefully our dreams do become a reality. Cheap NBA Jerseys . The winner Saturday will remain in the elite 10-team field next year.

Last week was the last off week of the season, providing us ample opportunity to catch our breath and prepare for the 14-race dash to the end of the season.This week, the race to the Chase takes us to Bristol Motor Speedway for a half-mile, high-banked Saturday-night affair. The length (500 laps) and style of racing at this track gives us plenty to keep an eye on.First, keep following the pole sitter. Fantasy-wise, this has been a smart play all season, but in the 23 Bristol races since NASCAR began tracking all the statistics used in daily fantasy NASCAR scoring, the pole sitter has stood out as the best race-to-race play, averaging 65.8 points per race. The next-best position averages 44.7.Thats not surprising, as the advantages of starting out front are heightened here. You get the best pit stall, which with the tight quarters of pit road could help avoid those pesky collisions.Plus, with the large number of available laps to lead here -- 500 ties for the most we run in a race all season -- taking the driver with the advantage off the start of the race provides a boatload of fantasy points right away, points that cannot be lost with a drop through the field.Each of the last four pole sitters at Bristol have finished with more than 70 points, headlined by Carl Edwards earlier this year, when he started first, finished first and led 276 laps along the way for 157.5 points.Side note: the race earlier this year was the sixth time in the last seven Bristol races that a Joe Gibbs Racing driver has sat on the pole.Going back to 2005, the pole sitter has averaged 94.5 laps led and 35.4 fastest laps per race. But starting in the front two rows can still offer high laps-led potential. Second averages 57.8 laps led, third 45.6 and fourth 46.7. The next-best value is 30.4.So, lets apply these numbers to this weeks race and go about picking a winning lineup.Heres my picks to get you started this week. But check back after qualifying for my final picks and fades.Im starting my team with...I mentioned Carl Edwards above, and Ill start my team with a driver who not only dominated this race earlier this year, but has led more than 70 laps in four of the last five Bristol races.dddddddddddd. In the three Bristol races hes run at the track since joining Joe Gibbs Racing, the preeminent short-track racing organization, hes led 145.3 laps per race.Overall, Joe Gibbs Racing has won eight of the last 15 races at the track, and the teams 2,747 total laps led in those races is nearly 1,200 more than any other team in that time.Keep an eye on these fourMatt Kenseth: Finishing position can be partially decided by luck. Laps led and fastest laps are often a better indicator of who could dominate the race and put up the huge numbers that lead to sweet paydays. Kenseth finished 36th and 42nd in the last two Bristol races, but led 142 laps earlier this season. Hes led more than 100 laps in three of the last six Bristol races, and more than 60 in six of the last 10.Joey Logano: You can usually count on Logano starting well here. He has nine straight top-10 finishes dating back to his time before joining Team Penske, and hes won this race each of the last two years. For some reason, he clicks in this race better than the spring race, run in the daytime. His last four Bristol night races, hes averaged 85.2 DraftKings points per race. His last four Bristol day races (run early in the season), hes averaged 10.6.Kyle Larson: Larson needs good runs to make the Chase (NASCARs version of the playoffs) for the first time, and hes shown the ability to race his way through the field at Bristol. Last year in this race, he led 90 laps and had 57 fastest laps from the 14th starting position (he finished seventh) for 95 points. Earlier this year, he had another 18 fastest laps, but finished 41st. But thats the only time in four Bristol races that hes finished with fewer than 50 points.Ricky Stenhouse Jr.: Value-wise, Stenhouse usually fits nicely on your roster, and strategy-wise, hes a great Bristol play. He has three finishes in the top six over the last four races at the track. In his Sprint Cup Series career, Stenhouse has just three other top-six finishes at all other tracks combined.
