n the 200 meters and missed out on making the U.S. squad in the event. But thats why McLaughlin appreciates F from xf's blog

Christian Horner says Max Verstappen demonstrated he is a team player at the German Grand Prix by not holding up Red Bull teammate Daniel Ricciardo at a crucial point of the race. Air Max 2018 Scontate .Verstappen rounded off a double podium for Red Bull at Hockenheim, finishing third behind Ricciardo. The teenager had beaten Ricciardo into Turn 1 but Red Bull then split its drivers strategies in a bid to stay ahead of Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg.Ahead of their final stops and with Rosberg set to serve a five-second penalty, Verstappen allowed Ricciardo, on the faster, super-soft tyre, to pass him without a fight. That move earned team boss Horners praise.He has demonstrated beyond any doubt that he is a team player, Horner said. The way the two drivers operated, they both had great starts, Max on the outside; Daniel gave him just enough room to work with, which is what I asked for in the briefing [on Sunday morning], and then they ran different strategies. We fitted the super-soft, the new tyre, on to Max at the first stop to try cover Rosberg. And took a different route with Daniel fitting the soft tyre.And then after Rosberg had picked up his penalty, the objective was very much to insure that we got both the drivers ahead, so whilst Daniel was on the faster tyre and closing very quickly on Max, we asked that he release him quickly rather than lose time fighting each other to insure that both of them were able to get ahead of Rosberg with his five-second penalty.Max immediately did that efficiently, and [the double podium] is a result of great team work between the whole team including the two race drivers.Rosbergs penalty was a controversial one, coming after he had lunged in deep on the inside of Verstappen earlier in the race, forcing the teenager to take evasive action and drive off the road. Horner thinks Rosberg would have escaped a penalty if he had shown more of an attempt to slow his car down.I think you can argue its a racing incident but if hed locked up all four wheels there would have been a puff of tyre smoke -- maybe then he would have got away with it. The problem was it looked like he stopped and then kept going, as if he was off to Cologne.Thats probably what caught the attention of the stewards but thats down to them, not us.

MacKinnons goal, also on the power play, came with just over a minute remaining.

SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. EUGENE, Ore. -- Fast fact: Teenager Sydney McLaughlin can juggle on a unicycle.Thats nothing compared to this: The 16-year-old is headed to Rio, and will be the youngest to compete for the U.S. Olympic track team since 1972, according to USA Track and Field.And to think, the 400-meter hurdles phenom had a panic attack before the start of the trials. She thought the stage might be a tad too big for her.It wasnt. McLaughlin, a soon-to-be senior at Union Catholic in Scotch Plains, New Jersey, finished third on Sunday, behind winner Dalilah Muhammad and Ashley Spencer.Sometimes, I just forget that Im 16, McLaughlin said. Theres not as much expectation. You know, I dont get paid for this. Im here just for fun.Once she got to work, she certainly had a ball. She planned to celebrate by going out for dinner. On her menu -- a cheeseburger, maybe some sweet potato fries, and possibly topped off with a slice of cheesecake.I want be like her when I grow up, said the 23-year-old Spencer. At 16 years old, I wasnt doing anything. I was running track, but it was like, meh? Shes an Olympian.It has always taken a bit of coaxing to get McLaughlin to the starting line -- both as a kid, when her father bribed her with a chocolate bar with almonds to keep her running at 6, and just before the trials.But her high school coach, Mike McCabe, has a counseling degree that he put to good use. He told her it was only nerves and everyone gets them.I think it was more self-doubt, he explained. It was the big stage, `I dont know if I can do this, I dont know if I belong here.We shared with her that everybody has this. Its not just her because shes so young. The elites have it, and theyve been doing it for years. Nike Shox Uomo Prezzi Bassi. he pep talk hit the mark. Although, the world and American junior record holder isnt exactly used to trailing like this. She finished in a world junior-record time of 54.15 seconds, which was still 1.27 behind Muhammad. She also was able to hold off fourth-place finisher Kori Carter.Shes a beast, Carter said. Shes the truth. I was in every single heat with her and she carries herself like a pro. I know shes going to represent the U.S. amazingly.McLaughlin grew up idolizing Allyson Felix, who finished fourth in the 200 meters and missed out on making the U.S. squad in the event. But thats why McLaughlin appreciates Felix -- those kinds of setbacks dont get her down. Felix still has the 400, an event she won last weekend, and will focus on that.You realize that sometimes you have to lose in order to get better, said McLaughlin, who still plans to compete at world juniors later this month in Poland. Thats a big thing.McLaughlin, who turns 17 on Aug. 7, tried to find humor in just about everything. After winning her heat in the semifinals during a steady drizzle, she said, The rain messed up my hair, but thats OK.Just Sydney being Sydney.Shes super-consistent as a racer, McCabe said. You dont see many bad days. You come to a meet like this and you have to be on at the right time. She doesnt take herself too seriously. Running isnt her life. Running chose her. She just happens to be real good at it.---AP National Writer Eddie Pells contributed to this report.
