RIO DE JANEIRO -- A botched ribbon toss -- a miscue that ended with one of Russias streamers briefly laying on the Rio Olympic Arena floor -- put the overwhelming favorites in the rhythmic gymnastics group final in an unfamiliar spot after the first of two rotations on Sunday. Discount Nike NBA Jerseys .There the Russians were in third place behind Spain and Bulgaria. Rather than panic, Russia went the other way.It just boosted us, Anastasiia Tatareva said. It forced us to pull ourselves together and do the best and not to give any chance to our opponents.There usually never is when Russia is on its game. The five-woman team responded with a brilliant finish during the second rotation -- an intricate set of dancing and gymnastics that included tossing clubs and hoops with precision that would look right at home in Cirque Du Soleil -- to claim a fifth straight Olympic gold.Russias two-round total of 36.233 was good enough to survive a serious scare from Spain, which returned to the podium for the first time since 1996 with a silver. Spain led qualifying on Saturday and was on top again after ribbons, though the Russians believe Spains lead had as much to do with their own rare mistake.There was a little hiccup, Tatareva said. But then everything went smoothly and we put everything together and finished well.Spain, which won the first Olympic gold awarded in the sport when it was introduced in Atlanta in 1996, was hardly complaining about the outcome. Four years ago the Spanish were a close fourth. A medal of any color would have been fine, though even they were taken aback when they found themselves on top of the leaderboard during qualifying.Yesterday came as a surprise to us, Alejandra Quereda said. Of course we worked toward a medal but we didnt expect things to happen like that. For us, a silver medal tastes like gold to us.It also raised the stakes heading toward Tokyo. Russia remains on top, though the gap may finally be closing.Nobody is undefeatable, Quereda said. We could see that yesterday. Yes, Russia is strong in rhythmic gymnastics but were getting there.

Australian netballers are in the money with a new pay deal dwarfing contracts offered in the new womens AFL competition.Netball Australia on Wednesday announced a huge pay increase for players in the new national league, confident it will ward off the challenge of rival codes such as the womens AFL.They are hopeful its another step toward netballers being full-time professional athletes within five years.With the new league set to start early next year, the collective playing agreement (CPA) allows for 80 players to be contracted to the eight clubs and share from a total payment pool of $5.4 million.Each club will have up to $675,000 to spend on its list of 10 contracted athletes, meaning that the average salary will increase to $67,500 and the minimum wage to double to $27,375.By comparison, AFLs new womens league has set a minimum wage of $5,000 for their players, with marquees earning $25,000, while female cricketers could earn at least $18,000 if they played both the one-day and Twenty20 domestic leagues.All netballers will sign 12-month part-time contracts, averaging 20 hours per week, with the hours of 10am-4pm protected should they wish to study or work.Other key points of the CPA are that players income is protected for up to two years in the event of injury or pregnancy, their health insurance is paid by the club, while new mothers will be able to travel with a carer at the clubs expense.

This will make it easier for new mother of twins, Australian and Adelaide Thunderbirds player Renae Ingles, to resume playing, while Test and Queensland Firebirds skipper Laura Geitz also recently announced her pregnancy.Current Australian player Madi Robinson said she was excited to be a player in this era of netball.To see the progression and growth of this sport in such a short time, over my playing career, is awesome, Robinson said.Hopefully it will empower and inspire the young girls as future Diamonds.NA deputy chief executive Marne Fechner said they had lifted the bar and believed it would keep more women in the sport.We want to ensure that netball remains the code of choice ... there was a story that potentially netballers are leaving the sport for AFL and our job is to ensure that over half a million girls want to be Diamond or a championship player.Fechner said she hoped the players could be full-time professionals by the end of the five-year broadcast deal.NA also confirmed that the CPA deal meant that clubs may officially commence contracting for the new competition, which starts mid-February.Robinson has been linked with a move from the Melbourne Vixens to cross-town rivals Collingwood.
