Evening was approaching at more than 17,000 feet above sea level when Todd Stansbury noticed his mountaineering group was a person short. It was November 1995, and with a person missing from the group of eight now trekking together through the world's highest mountain range, the dangers they risked — snowstorms, avalanches, high altitude — seemed even more real. A couple of hikers grew frustrated: Hadn't Cathy known that straying from the group could endanger everyone. Stansbury's thoughts drifted to two-a-days 15 years earlier as a freshman linebacker at Georgia Tech. Everyone will be OK. ". Today, Stansbury believes that moment exemplifies college athletics' value. But somewhere between grueling summer workouts and narrow Yellow Jackets wins, Stansbury learned to push past his own limitations and look out for others. " It's why Oregon State 's new athletic director has built his career on developing student-athletes into leaders, on and off the field. "Sports force you to overcome something, whether it's fear or what you think you're capable of," Stansbury said. As a kid, Stansbury often ambled up a big grassy hill in his.
SAN ANTONIO — Michael Phelps already has far more medals than any Olympic athlete. Not after an astounding weekend in sweltering San Antonio, where Phelps turned in a performance at the U. S. national championships that re-established his place as the world’s dominant swimmer. When rival swimmer Chad le Clos trash-talked from afar, it only made Phelps go faster. He was barred from the world championships after his second drunken-driving arrest, so he turned the national championships into his biggest meet of the year. Never mind that this was essentially a junior-varsity event, largely made up of promising youngsters, a few late bloomers and a smattering of big-name swimmers who failed to qualify for worlds. [ Michael Phelps answers taunts from Russia with world’s best 100 fly ]. Hardly the sort of competition that Phelps is used to facing, but he wasn’t concerned about the guy in the next lane. His attention was focused on Kazan, Russia — specifically, the winning times at worlds in the 100-meter butterfly, the 200 fly, and the 200 individual medley. Phelps’ times in the fly harkened back to 2009, when rubberized suits made a mockery of the clock. That’s something I got back to, something I haven’t done in a while.

Toxic waste is still flowing from the Gold King Mine. The Environmental Protection Agency released some water samples Saturday, including pH levels and dissolved metal loads, but it didn't release the total levels of heavy metals, including lead, zinc, arsenic, cadmium, among others. Lead poisoning can create muscle and vision problems for adults, harm development in fetuses and lead to kidney disease, developmental problems and sometimes death in children, the EPA said. The high-water mark left from the pulse of toxic waste deposited a yellow-orange film along large swaths of the Animas River. High-water run-off events are expected to stir those sediments and cloud the river during the weeks and months to come.
