CALGARY -- Pierre Lueders had a satisfying conversation with German bobsled rival Christoph Langen after both men retired from the sport to coach. soccer jerseys from china . Langen told him the Germans couldnt figure out how Lueders was beating them when they had so much to work with and the Canadians so little at the time. "We certainly stuck our nose in where it didnt belong and it was a lot of fun doing it," Lueders said Thursday with some glee. The Olympic bobsled champion drove Canada into the worlds elite in the sport both literally and figuratively with his fierce competitive streak and not a little stubbornness. Lueders joins eight others who will be inducted into Canadas Sports Hall of Fame later his year. Hockey player Scott Niedermayer, speedskater Jeremy Wotherspoon, soccer player Charmaine Hooper, rower Derek Porter and the figure skating pair of Jamie Sale and David Pelletier are the athletes joining Lueders in the class of 2012. The late Daryl (Doc) Seaman, an owner of the Calgary Flames, and Marion Lay, an athlete-turned-advocate, join them as builders. Their induction ceremony will be Oct. 18 at the Sports Hall of Fame, which opened the doors to its new building at Canada Olympic Park on July 1, 2011. The Sports Hall Of Fame celebrates Canadians achievements across all sports. Each class of inductees represent a variety of athletes and builders, from people like Herman (Jackrabbit) Smith-Johannsen, the founder of cross-country skiing in Canada, to racehorse Northern Dancer. Lueders and Wotherspoon were two of this years inductees in the Grand Hall for Thursdays reveal. When they received a phone call about their induction, both men said they went straight to their computers to research some of the 520 who have gone into the Hall before them. "Theres some big names there that you watched as a young kid growing up in Canada," Lueders said. "To be honoured with those same athletes, its pretty hard to put into words." Both athletes remain in their sport as coaches. Lueders is a pilot coach with Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton based in Calgary. The 41-year-old from Edmonton is grooming the next generation of drivers, but not the next Pierre Lueders. "I think one Pierre Lueders was more than enough," he said with a chuckle. Lueders won Olympic gold in 1998 and silver in 2006, as well as two world titles in two-man bobsled during his 20 years on the national team. Wotherspoon, winner of a record 67 World Cup races and an Olympic silver medal, still holds the world record in the mens 500 metres. The 35-year-old from Red Deer, Alta., oversees young speedskaters at an academy in Inzell, Germany. Hes married to former speedskater Kim Weger and they have a young daughter Ella. "I was always focused on the last race or the last month of training or the most recent events and this has given me a reason to look at my career as a whole," Wotherspoon said. "I owe speedskating a lot. If it wasnt for this sport, I wouldnt be doing anything Im doing now. I probably wouldnt have moved to Calgary, I wouldnt be in this Hall of Fame. I wouldnt be coaching speedskating in Germany. I met my wife in speedskating and shes the reason I have a daughter." Niedermayer, from Edmonton, is the only hockey player to win every major North American and international championship in his career. That includes the Memorial Cup, world junior championship, mens world championship, the World Cup, Stanley Cup and an Olympic gold medal. Niedermayer played 18 NHL seasons with New Jersey and Anaheim and won four Stanley Cups during his career. Edmontons Sale and Pelletier, from Sayabec, Que., provided Canada and the world riveting drama at the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City. They skated a stellar long program to "Love Story" but were initially given silver medals. Outrage over a judging scandal prompted the awarding of a second pair of gold medals to the Canadians during the Games. The judging system in figure skating has drastically altered because of that incident. Like Lueders, Hooper was an outspoken pioneer in her sport and backed it up on the soccer pitch with long and decorated career. Hooper, born in Georgetown, Guyana, played in a record 129 international matches for Canada, including three FIFA Womens World Cups. She scored 71 international goals. Porter, a rower born in Belfast, won two Olympic medals, including gold in the mens eights in 1992. Porter also won a world title in 1993 in single sculls. Seaman was one of six businessmen who brought the Flames to Calgary from Atlanta in 1980. The Second World War veteran was a key player in getting the Saddledome built in 1983 and bringing the 1988 Winter Olympics to the city. His hockey foundation has contributed over $5 million to minor hockey initiatives. Lay won bronze in swimming at the 1968 Summer Games in the freestyle relay. She went on to establish the Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women in Sport and Physical Activity (CAAWS) and headed operations for Rick Hansens Man in Motion World Tour in 1985. Lay was a founder of the Canadian Sport Centre in Vancouver and served as chair of the Vancouver 2010 Bid Corporation. Triathlete Peter Reid, hockey player Ray Bourque, football player Lui Passaglia, soccer player Andrea Neil, para-Alpine skier Lauren Woolstencroft and International Olympic Committee member Richard Pound were the first class of inductees to enter the new Hall last November. wholesale soccer jerseys . -- Patrick Holland scored the shootout winner and Robert Mayer made 30 saves, as the Hamilton Bulldogs defeated the Lake Erie Monsters 3-2 in the American Hockey League on Friday. cheap soccer jerseys china . -- Former British Open champion Darren Clarke has withdrawn from the Masters because of a hamstring injury. WASHINGTON -- The Washington Redskins opened free agency not with the familiar Dan Snyder splash but instead with a few noteworthy ripples, keeping a couple of key players while adding an offensive lineman, a special teams standout and a No. 2 receiver. No Jairus Byrd or Aqib Talib landing via the teams owner private plane within hours of the official start of the NFLs annual open market. While there still could a blockbuster to come, the brain trust of general manager Bruce Allen and new coach Jay Gruden began by spreading the salary cap money around to plug as many holes as possible after a 3-13 season. Inside linebacker Perry Riley and receiver Santana Moss were re-signed with just hours to go before they were set to become free agents. Receiver Andre Roberts, guard Shawn Lauvao and linebacker Adam Hayward agreed to terms and are expected to sign their deals once theyve completed their physicals, according to people familiar with their deals who spoke on condition of anonymity because the contracts had not yet been signed. Cornerback Corey Graham and defensive end Antonio Smith were scheduled for visits to Redskins Park. Riley was the Redskins leading tackler from last season, and his return gives Washington a measure of stability in the heart of the defence. With longtime captain London Fletcher planning to retire, the Redskins faced the daunting task of replacing both inside linebackers in their 3-4 scheme had Riley signed elsewhere. Rileys deal is worth about $13 million over three years, including approximately $4.25 million in guaranteed money, according to a person familiar with the contract who spoke on condition of anonymity because the Redskins did not publicly release the financial details. A 2010 fourth-round pick who has started 40 consecutive games, Riley became the third Redskins defensive player to re-sign rather than test unrestricted free agency. Cornerback DeAngelo Hall and defensive lineman Chris Baker also have new deals, and outside linebacker Brian Orakpo is all but certain to return after receiving the franchise player tag last week. Gruden also opted to retain defensive co-ordinator Jim Haslett. Also coming back is Moss, who turns 35 in June and signed a one-year deal. He had 42 catches for 452 yards in 2013 as the teams No. 3 receiver and has accepted without complaint his reduced role over the last two seasons. He recently passed 10,000 yards receiving for his career, and 2014 will be his 10th season with the Redskins. cheap soccer jerseys. While Moss will be back as the No. 3 wideout and Pierre Garcon as No. 1, Roberts is set to fill the No. 2 role being vacated by Joshua Morgan, who is now a free agent. Roberts, who has played four seasons with the Arizona Cardinals, had 43 receptions for 471 yards and two touchdowns last year. His best season was 2011, when he had 64 catches for 759 yards and five touchdowns. A person familiar with Roberts deal said it has a base value of $16 million over four years with $8 million guaranteed, including a $4 million signing bonus, and that the deal could be worth up to $17.35 million with incentives. The person said Roberts is scheduled to take his physical Wednesday and then sign his deal. The person spoke to the AP because the terms of the deal had not been announced. Lauvao represents the first move in Grudens plan to upgrade an offensive line in charge of protecting franchise quarterback Robert Griffin III. A third-round draft pick in 2010, he has played four seasons with the Cleveland Browns, mostly at right guard. Chris Chester has been the Redskins right guard for three seasons, and Lauvaos arrival could lead to a shuffling of a unit that allowed 43 sacks last year. Lauvaos deal is worth $17 million over four years, according to ESPN. The Redskins kick and coverage units were among the worst in recent NFL history last year, so Hayward was a natural target after his work on special teams over seven seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He agreed to a three-year contract, according to a person familiar with the deal, and he is expected to sign Wednesday. Graham and Smith will have to be courted in person before they agree to a deal, with both set to visit the Redskins practice facility. Graham, who has played the last two seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, could compete with second-year player David Amerson for the starting cornerback position opposite Hall. Smith, who had five of his 41 1/2 career sacks last year with the Houston Texans, would fill another need. While theyve been one of the NFLs most active free agency teams in 15 years under Snyder, the Redskins were quiet the last two seasons because of a $36 million salary cap penalty imposed by the NFL for the way the contracts were restructured during the 2010 uncapped year. Now they have money, but they have lots to do. Even if they sign Graham and Smith, they would still need a pair of starting safeties, a linebacker to replace Fletcher and probably a right tackle. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
