For some of Canadas top athletes, the Canadian Track and Field Trials are the final step towards qualifying for the London 2012 Olympic Games. Air Max Schuhe . Each week, CTVOlympics.ca looks at some of the names to keep an eye on as we count down to the Trials in Calgary from June 27-30. DISCIPLINE: Mens 20km Race WalkNUMBER OF OLYMPIC BERTHS AVAILABLE: Three. *The IAAF allows a maximum of three athletes per country per event if the three athletes have each reached an A standard time. TOP CONTENDERS:                                                                  Inaki Gomez – Vancouver, BCWHAT THEY NEED:Gomez is the lone walker that has met the A+ standard time in the event. That means hell need just to place top three at Trials to book his Olympic ticket.  Since he is currently the only Canadian in position to claim an Olympic berth, it would be considered a major upset if Gomez failed to qualify for London 2012.WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW:Because of the gruelling nature and distance of the event, the race walk at Trials will only be a 10km race. This means that any athlete who wants to make it to the Olympic Games in Race Walk would need to have reached the Olympic qualifying standard time prior to Calgary.Gomez achieved the A+ standard time (1:21:07) early in the season, finishing eighth at an IAAF event in China with a time of 1:21:05 – his career best time in the event. He followed that up with another A standard time (1:22:30) at last months meet in Saransk, RUS. Gomez finished 14th in that race with a time of 1:21:58.There was another Olympic hopeful, Evan Dunfee, looking to join Gomez in London, but it appears that his hopes have faded. While Dunfee achieved better than a B standard time this qualifying period—he completed a personal best 1:23:45 at the Naumburg International in Germany—but because of Gomezs success, Dunfee needed to secure an A standard time ahead of Trials.There is only one IAAF-sanctioned event left before Trials, which runs June 17th in Italy. Dunfee, who is not yet scheduled to participate in that event, would need an A standard to be eligible to qualify for the Olympic Games at Trials.MEDAL HOPES IN LONDON 2012:Gomezs personal best was just a few seconds off the national record set by Arturo Huerta in July of 2000. Realistically, Gomez would need to get his time under 1:20:00 just to break the top 15 in London 2012.Gomez has said in interviews that the goal is not necessarily to win a medal now, but to continue to build experience the Rio 2016 Summer Games.The best time this year is held by Italys Alex Schwazer, who finished a 20km race walk in 1:17:30. The current world record is held by Russian Vladimir Kanayakin, who walked a 1:17:16 at a meet in Russia in 2007.Check back on Friday for a look at the top competitors in the womens race walk leading up to Trials. The Canadian Track and Field Trials take place June 27-30 in Calgary. Nike Air Max 2009 Schuhe Herren Schwarz Grau Weiß . The defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks needed only a point to secure the final playoff berth still available in the Western Conference, and failed to get it. However, Chicago still locked up the Wests eighth seed after Minnesota defeated Dallas later Sunday. Nike Air Max Damen Billig . Stefan Frei would rather be without his "scary mask" altogether. But Toronto FCs No. 1 goalkeeper knows the protective plastic facemask hes worn since breaking his nose two weeks ago is a necessary precaution. http://www.airmaxschweizch.eu/air-max-90-tu-60/ . Faber and Jorgensen, who are both represented by the same management firm and count an 11-year friendship, didnt hesitate to engage. The pair traded punches in the pocket and engaged in rousing grappling scrambles from the opening bell. Nike Air Max 1 Frauen . Cliff Pennington scored on a Juan Pierre fielding error with one out in the top of the ninth to pull the As even and Tyson Ross (1-0) got the win for allowing only one hit with a walk in three innings of work. Nike Air Max 2013 Schuhe Herren Weiß . The native of Mont-Tremblant, Que., dominated both her runs against Valeriya Tsoy of Kazakhstan to capture a bronze medal in the womens parallel giant slalom.MONTPELLIER, France - Florian Mayer of Germany beat Gilles Muller of Luxembourg 7-6 (3), 6-3 Monday to reach the second round of the Open Sud de France. The sixth-seeded Mayer saved seven break points in the first set to force a tiebreaker, then broke for a 3-1 lead in the second. Mayer made his return from a hip injury that forced him to withdraw from the Australian Open. Mayer enjoyed his best season last year, breaking into the top 20 for the first time and beating Rafael Nadal in straight sets at the Shanghai Masters. French wild card Guillaume Rufin aand Russian wild card Nikolay Davydenko also advanced. Nike Air Max 95 Schuhe Damen Grau Weiß Orange. Rufin defeated Vasek Pospisil of Canada 6-4, 7-6 (6). The 209th-ranked Rufin won his first match in the main draw of an ATP tour event since last years French Open. Davydenko downed Stephane Robert of France 6-2, 6-1 to win his first match this season after first-round losses at the Qatar Open and in Melbourne, Australia. The former top 10 player won more than half of his return points to break Robert five times and will face fourth-seeded Richard Gasquet in the next round. ' ' '

 According to Vacheron Constantin, the inspiration for its Métiers d’Art Mecaniques Ajourées collection (“ajourée” is French for “openworked”) came from the Rolex Replica Watch architectural design of 19th century European railroad stations — the Gothic arches and airy vaults of the Industrial Revolution, along with the distinctive railway wall clocks and their Roman numerals. The Rolex Replica movement in these watches, Caliber 4400 SQ (“squellette”) is described by the company as “hand-sculpted,” featuring manual beveling, engraving, and straightening, fine interior angles and contrasting brushed and polished finishes. The Replicas rolex outer rings (in black, gray, or blue; there is also a high-jewelry version with baguette diamonds on the bezel) are made of grand feu enamel. The white gold cases are 40 mm in diameter, and the movement bears the Geneva Hallmark.
