Lee Westwood has reiterated his desire to captain Europes Ryder Cup team in 2020 with a stint as vice-captain in Paris in 2018 a likely stepping stone. Authentic James Daniels Jersey . Westwood, who was one of Darren Clarkes three wild cards for the Ryder Cup in Hazeltine, has not given up hope of playing against the United States for an 11th time when the event is staged in Paris and equal the record of his first Ryder Cup partner Nick Faldo.The 43-year-old needs just two and a half points to overtake Faldo as Europes all-time record points scorer in the biennial contest, after failing to win any of his three matches in the defeat at Hazeltine. Asked if he wanted to be European captain at Whistling Straits in 2020, Westwood said: Yeah, I think so. I certainly wouldnt want to be the captain next time around.Thats too soon for me, but I think 2020 is definitely on my radar. There are a lot of candidates for it but Ill be putting my name in the ring for sure. Its something Id like to do. Nick Faldo (left) and Lee Westwood (right) during the Ryder Cup at the Valderrama Golf Club Ive played on 10 and witnessed 10 different forms of captaincy, so Im pretty well qualified to be a captain I would have thought.Ive played a lot in it and Id like to maybe play again, but if I cant play again Id like to do the assistant captains role, see what goes on behind the scenes, although I paid a lot of attention to what Darren and the assistant captains were doing this year.I dont think necessarily you have to be an assistant captain (before being captain), but it probably helps. Another angle to see it from, more experience. Andy Sullivan was part of Europes 2016 Ryder Cup team Englands Andy Sullivan also failed to win a point at Hazeltine, the 30-year-old losing in the opening foursomes session alongside Rory McIlroy and to Brandt Snedeker in the singles.I think its one of those things that everyone wants to play five games, which is not going to happen, Sullivan said.Its not plausible to do that.Obviously different situations come about and unfortunately its one of them situations where we were behind and Darren had to send the team out there that he thought was going to get us in front.

As TSN reported Thursday, the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport is under intense pressure from the federal government to focus drug testing on athletes who compete in international events representing Canada. Since funding for the tests has been frozen and the cost of testing can eclipse $1,000 per test, university athletes in a number of sports are being tested less often. Chicago Bears Jerseys China .

As each game passes (each has played close with the exception of last night) it becomes clearer just how evenly matched these two teams are and how one mistake, or one bad inning, is likely to sway the result.SOCHI, Russia - According to head coach Mike Babcock, Team Canada came to Russia with a plan of how it would employ the goaltending duties at these Olympics, namely who, between Roberto Luongo and Carey Price, would be the guy. "Theyve both been real good," said Babcock. "Havent changed our minds." A decision has seemingly been made - Sundays Group B-deciding tilt against Finland ahead - but it could not have been an easy one. Price opened the tournament with a sturdy 19-save performance against the Norwegians, yielding just one goal. Luongo bettered his efforts a day later, stopping all 23 shots versus the Austrians. But which of the two deserves to start against the Finns, the most challenging opponent of the tournament to date and an indicator of which direction the brass is leaning, is a matter of some debate. On purely NHL terms, for this season, Price has been the better goaltender. He owns a .925 save percentage after 48 starts - ninth-best in the NHL - keeping the Montreal Canadiens afloat through good times and bad. He also entered the Olympics on a sterling five-game run that saw him stop 167 of 174 shots - .960 save percentage - banking one shutout in the process. Luongo has been steady meanwhile, boasting a .917 save percentage in Vancouver this season, a number about in line with his career average. But unlike Price, he and the Canucks have stumbled into the break, losing five straight. And though his struggling team managed to score just eight goals during the five-game slide, Luongo himself wasnt much better, allowing 17 goals in the process (.880 save percentage). If not better than Price at the moment, Luongo does have history on his side. Initially the backup to Martin Brodeur at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, Luongo grabbed the net against Germany in the pre-qualificationn round and didnt let go (albeit with a few hiccups) en route to the gold medal.

But unlike American starter Jonathan Quick, who has a stranglehold on the no. 1 gig due in large part to an unbelievable recent playoff track record, the 26-year-old Price has been just so-so in the postseason for the Canadiens. He had an .894 save percentage in falling to the Ottawa Senators in the first round last spring. Price did, however, steer the Hamilton Bulldogs to a Calder Cup championship during that brilliant 07 run. Back in 2010, Babcock started the Olympic tournament with Luongo against the Norwegians - they won 8-0 - but apparently had his mind set on Brodeur all along. The future Hall of Fame netminder started games two and three against the Swiss and Americans, but lost his job to Luongo after four goals passed on 22 shots in a 5-3 loss to the U.S. All of which goes to show that whatever may seem certain for even a moment in a tournament that extends for just days can change in an instant or two. Asked of his process for determining who would be the guy, Babcock pointed to the NHL season and said that he and the Team Canada brass had been closely monitoring who was doing what. If he favours the present then Price would seem to be the obvious choice, but if he has a sentimental spot for what Luongo managed on this stage last time around then the embattled Canucks keeper may just be the guy. The two netminders were to be informed of the decision on Saturday evening. "We did the same thing last time," said Babcock of 2010. "We had a plan. We understand and I said this a number of times you get one change in this tournament and you can still win."
