An American accountant and a New Zealander walked into a Wollongong pizzeria.Four years later, Gwen Jorgensens decision to seek out Jamie Turner as a coach was rewarded with the first US Olympic triathlon gold medal.Australias record Olympic medal streak in the sport ended on Saturday at Fort Copacabana, but there was still a strong down under influence as Jorgensen beat Swiss Nicola Spirig.Jorgensen spends five months of the year training with Turners famed Wollongong Wizards squad.Spirigs coach is Australian Brett Sutton, a maverick figure in the sport.After finishing 38th at the London Olympics, Jorgensen sought out Turner, a New Zealander who has coached swimming and triathlon in Wollongong since 1995.Turner conducted what he calls LSD - lk, search and discover - to see if he and Jorgensen could work together.Id be more interested in an athlete who had the discipline to make their bed every morning, rather than someone whos run X-time for three kilometres, said Turner.The accountant and the Kiwi sn decided they liked the cut of each others cloth.Jorgensen lives for five months each year in a converted North Wollongong garage with the Allen family.She said her gold would not have happened without the Wizards.Im a better athlete, for sure, 100 per cent, because of them, Jorgensen said.Im 30, Im definitely grandma in the group - Patrick (her husband) and I are called grandma and grandpa because we always go to bed early.I feel younger because of them.Jorgensen calls Turner the best triathlon coach in the world and eight of his squad competed in Rio, including Australian top-10 pair Aaron Royle and Ryan Bailie.But never suggest to Jorgensen or Turner that the American has made sacrifices.We dont make sacrifices - athletes make investments, Turner said.One of the things that shell perhaps pat me on the back for is for teaching her that these things are not sacrifices.The accountants investing reaped massive dividends.Between 2014 and earlier this year Jorgensen had a record 13-race winning streak, dubbed Gwensanity, that made her the woman to beat in Rio.Jorgensen thrived under the pressure and had a storming race.Spirig, the London Olympics gold medallist, also impressed after crashing in March and needing hand surgery.There were mind games as they shared the lead on the run, with each telling the other to take a turn into a headwind.Spirig told Jorgensen the American should do the work, given she already had an Olympic medal.Fair enough - she now has two and I still only have one, Jorgensen said.She pulled clear to beat Spirig by 40 seconds, with Vicky Holland from Great Britain taking the bronze five seconds later.Beijing bronze medallist Emma Moffatt led the Australians with sixth, while London bronze medallist Erin Densham overcame a difficult four years to take 12th.Ashleigh Gentle lost touch with the front group in the swim and finished 26th in her Olympic debut.

They hope to persuade the other team owners and commissioner Roger Gdell to put pressure on Redskins owner Daniel Snyder to drop the nickname they find offensive. "Given the way the meeting transpired," Ray Halbritter, an Oneida representative and leader of the "Change the Mascot Campaign," said Wednesday, "it became somewhat evident they were defending the continued use of the name. ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Falcons found a way to finish out a win and end a two-game losing streak.Theyre hoping the discovery will help them stay on top of the NFC South.The Green Bay Packers, meanwhile, need better health as they try to stay close in the NFC North.Matt Ryan threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Mohamed Sanu with 31 seconds remaining Sunday and the Falcons overcame Aaron Rodgers do-it-all best to beat the Packers 33-32 on Sunday.It was an important win for the Falcons (5-3), who had lost two straight and already were hearing suggestions they were headed for a repeat of their 2015 season, when they started 6-1 and still missed the playoffs at 8-8.The Falcons insist this team is different and able to overcome losses to Seattle and San Diego the last two weeks.Certainly, we didnt get the result we wanted the last two weeks, but I dont think anybody was discouraged, Ryan said. We learned from those situations, we came back and when we had our opportunity late in the game today, I thought it was executed really well.On first down from the Green Bay 11, Sanu and Julio Jones lined up left.Julio ran outside and drew two guys and it left me one-on-one with a linebacker, Sanu said.Sanu beat linebacker Jake Ryan on his route and caught Ryans fastball under the goalpost.When we practiced it during the week, he said he was going to put a little extra zip on that ... and he did, Sanu said with a grin.Green Bay (4-3) couldnt overcome the loss of six starters.Linebacker Clay Matthews and wide receiver Randall Cobb were held out with hamstring injuries. Also missing were starting tight end Jared Ck, who has an ankle injury, wide receiver/running back Ty Montgomery, who was limited all week by an illness, and starting cornerbacks Quinten Rollins and Damarious Randall.Rodgers completed 28 of 38 passes for 246 yards and four touchdowns. He ran for a career-high 60 yards.First of all, there are no excuses, Rodgers said. Were all professionals out here and are expected to play well, and to that accord Im proud of our guys and the way they battled.Here are some things to know about the Falcons win over the Packers:NEW TARGETS: Receivers Geronimo Alliison, Trevor Davis and Jeff Janis caught their first career touchdowns as Rodgers kept the offense moving.ddddddddddddFullback Aaron Ripkowski, who had six carries for the season before Sunday, matched that with six carries for 34 yards. He had four carries for 13 yards on the Packers 13-play, 86-yard touchdown drive for a 32-26 lead with 4:04 remaining.12 IS T MANY: A crucial mistake by defensive end Brks Reed almost cost the Falcons. Reed was t slow to run off the field on a third-down play inside the Falcons 20, and Atlanta was penalized for having 12 men on the field.If not for the penalty, the Packers would have faced a fourth-and-1 play from the Atlanta 15. Instead, they had a first down at the 13 that helped set up Rodgers 7-yard touchdown pass to Janis. Rodgers run for the 2-point conversion gave Green Bay a 32-26 lead with about 4 minutes remaining.ADAMS TRIES BACKFIELD: Davante Adams, who started for Cobb, followed the lead of Cobb and Montgomery by lining up at running back as well as receiver.Davante, to his credit, has to know so many different positions and so many different personnel groups, said Packers coach Mike McCarthy, who called Adams the backup, backup, backup, backup running back/wide receiver in the backfield.TAMME HURTS SHOULDER: Falcons tight end Jacob Tamme left with a right shoulder injury suffered on the first possession. Falcons coach Dan Quinn said the injury is not expected to be a long-term thing. Quinn said Tammes status for Thursdays game at Tampa Bay is in question right now.BRYANT KICKS WAY TO TOP: Matt Bryant passed Morten Anderson to become the Falcons all-time leading scorer. Bryant began the day with 803 career points, three away from Andersons record of 806. He kicked a 36-yard field goal to cap Atlantas opening drive to tie Anderson and added a 40-yard field goal and three more extra points.Anderson kicked for Atlanta from 1995-2000 and then returned to close his career with the Falcons in 2006 and 2007.---AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
