MONACO, Monaco - Athletes from Kosovo will be able to compete at the 2016 Summer Games after being granted full recognition on Tuesday by the International Olympic Committee.The full IOC formally ratified a decision made in October by the executive board that clears the way for Kosovo to compete as an independent nation.Kosovo, which declared independence from Serbia in 2008, becomes the 205th national Olympic committee recognized by the IOC.This is one big day, one historical day for athletes of Kosovo, Besim Hasani, head of the Kosovo Olympic Committee, told the assembly. This is the beginning of a new era for the Olympic movement in Kosovo.IOC President Thomas Bach said: This was a very important decision, particularly for the athletes of Kosovo. Now they can start to prepare for Rio.Serbia has refused to accept Kosovos independence and Olympic recognition had been fiercely opposed by Serbian officials.But Hasani went out of his way in his speech to thank my colleagues from the Serbian Olympic Committee for their friendship and all our international partners for their support.Bach said Serbian Olympic Committee president Vlade Divac, the former NBA star, had not been happy with the initial IOC decision but accepted it in the interest of the athletes and in a gesture of sportsmanship.This is really a good example for the Olympic movement, Bach said.Serbian Sports Minister Vanja Udovicic, however, attacked the IOCs decision as a precedent that could have serious consequences for the global system of sports.What were the motives to accept the so-called European state that is not recognized by the United Nations? Udovicic said in a statement. And that is happening in a pre-Olympic year with the games taking place in Brazil, a country which did not recognize Kosovo.Kosovo plans to send a team to the inaugural European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan, next year, and up to 10 athletes are expected to compete at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, including in the sports of judo, boxing and wrestling.We already have some very good athletes who in recent years achieved world gold medals and medals from European championships, Hasani said. Its a good example of what can be achieved through sports and through autonomy and thanks to diplomacy of sports.Kosovos best known athlete, Majlinda Kelmendi, is a reigning judo world champion. She had hoped to represent Kosovo at the 2012 London Olympics, but competed for Albania instead. She has Kosovo and Albanian citizenship.The IOC said Kosovo met the sports and technical requirements for acceptance, including the definition of a country in the Olympic Charter as an independent state recognized by the international community.Kosovo has not been accepted as a U.N. member. While more than 100 nations have recognized Kosovo, Russia and China have not. Most European Union members have also recognized Kosovo, with the exception of Spain, Greece, Cyprus, Romania and Slovakia.The IOC said Kosovos national Olympic body, set up in 1992, has more than 30 affiliated national sports federations, including 13 from Olympic sports. Six of those are full members of international federations.Kosovos top sports official, Memli Krasniqi, welcomed Tuesdays vote as a truly historic moment.The IOC has finally ended two decades of injustice and isolation which has plagued Kosovo sport and which has prohibited the thousands of Kosovo athletes to be equal on the world stage, Krasniqi told The Associated Press in Pristina.___Associated Press writers Nebi Qena in Pristina, Kosovo, and Dusan Stojanovic in Belgrade contributed to this report.___Follow Stephen Wilson on Twitter: http://twitter.com/stevewilsonap Roquan Smith Bears Jersey .Tzavelas opened the scoring in the 11th and Pereyra added another in the 51st. Emmanuel Kone pulled one back in the 80th and Levadiakos missed several chances to level in the last 10 minutes. Roquan Smith Jersey . Scotlands Greg Laidlaw made one of two penalty kicks and all three conversions, and Stuart Hogg added a try in the second half. "The most important thing to come out of the game is that we did not get scored against," Laidlaw said. http://www.bearsrookiesproshop.com/anth ... rs-jersey/. And once again, Team Homan emerged as the victor with the reigning national champions defeating Team Sweeting at the Pintys All-Star Curling Skins Game Friday night in the tournaments opening draw at The Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre in beautiful Banff National Park. Taylor Gabriel Jersey . For the Blue Jays the time was Wednesday and the ace was R.A. Dickey. He stepped up. "I feel some responsibility as a stopper from time to time," said Dickey. Chase Daniel Bears Jersey . On Thursday, they signed former Browns linebacker DQwell Jackson. Terms of the deal were not immediately available.KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Chinas Shanshan Feng rallied to win the LPGA Malaysia on Sunday for her fourth LPGA Tour title, playing a six-hole stretch on the back nine in 6 under.The 25-year-old Feng, four strokes behind Thailands Pornanong Phatlum entering the round, closed with a bogey-free 8-under 63 for a three-stroke victory over Phatlum.I like to come from behind, Feng said. I had no pressure at all today. ... What I was doing was just to focus on every shot and just try to do my best and hope that putts can fall.Feng birdied Nos. 11-14 to tie Phatlum at 16 under and pulled away with a four-stroke swing when she holed a 10-foot eagle putt on the par-5 16th and Phatlum made a double bogey on the par-3 15th. She set up the eagle with a 3-wood approach similar to the shot that led to a winning eagle last year in China in the Reignwood LPGA Classic.I hit the 3-wood with like a smooth swing, Feng said. Then I was hoping to get a good bounce, which I did. It reminded me kind of like 18 hole Reignwood last year. Same club. Its the magic 3-wood again. I made an eagle again. I think that was pretty important for my win.She parred the last two holes to finish at 18-under 266 at Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country CClub.ddddddddddddPlaying a group behind Feng, Phatlum birdied the 16th and closed with two pars for a 70. She was trying to become the LPGA Tours first Thai winner.I feel happy that I have a good week, Phatlum said. Today, just didnt make the putts, but hit it very good still.Swedens Pernilla Lindberg and South Koreas So Yeon Ryu and Chella Choi tied for third at 14 under. Lindberg had a 63, and Ryu and Choi shot 67.Lydia Ko missed a chance to take the No. 1 ranking from Stacy Lewis. The 17-year-old New Zealander needed to win and have Lewis tie for 12th or worse. Instead, Ko closed with a 70 to tie for eighth at 11 under. Lewis had a 69 to tie for 21st at 7 under.Feng is projected to jump from ninth to fifth in the world. In addition the victory last year in China, she also won the 2012 LPGA Championship and 2013 Titleholders.She was second last year, four strokes behind Lexi Thompson.Ive had a very good record here, Feng said. Maybe just one time I was out of top 10. Last year, I came close. I was second. So this year, I improved.The tournament was the second in the tours six-event Asian swing. The LPGA KEB-HanaBank is next week in South Korea, followed by the Blue Bay LPGA in China.
