From a shortlist of 10, we are looking for you to vote for your favourite Hill race, with the top three to be screened in reverse order on Friday March 11, Saturday March 12 and Sunday March 13.Maybe its Hills maiden win in Hungary in 1993 that will get your vote or an emotional victory for Williams in Spain after the tragic events of San Marino in 1994.Perhaps it is his sole British GP win, or the joyous scenes of winning the world championship in Japan in 1996.Or maybe it wasnt a win at all, but rather challenging F1s elite in an Arrows Yamaha at the Hungaroring in 1997.Vote for your favourite by clicking on the corresponding picture below.

Note: The Calgary Flames announced Tuesday that Sean Monahan would not be made available to Canadas World Junior team. http://www.cheapravensshoponline.com/ Raninder Singh, the gregarious chief of the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI), doesnt break his step as he charges with purpose towards the McDonalds at the athletes village in Rio. Hes just finished delivering a pep talk to the Indian shooting team and suddenly realised that hes famished. These hunger pangs are easily satisfied with a quick snack, but for Raninder and his team of shooters, the next few days offer a chance to devour a record haul of medals.Four shooting medals have been won at the last three Olympics including Indias only individual Gold in Olympic history. No other sport has delivered as many individual medals in Indian Olympic history. Now, with the first competitive shot set to be fired on Saturday, the contingent faces the burden of building on this impressive legacy.We have been doing very well, training well, the government has given us great funding and we have used the resources very well, says team manager Ronak Pandit, a former international shooter himself. I wont say the shooters are under pressure at all. The atmosphere is fantastic, the shooters are very positive, the training results are excellent and we look forward to a great competition.There is little doubt that at least outwardly, no member of the contingent is overawed by the stage. At the official welcoming ceremony at the athletes village on Tuesday, several were seen out and about, posing cheerily for pictures, back slapping fellow shooters and happily mixing with other athletes and a motley crew of journalists. The man drawing most curiosity among them was the spunky Jitu Rai, who is being spoken of in hushed tones as the shooter who can get India off to a sparkling start on Saturday in the 10m Air Pistol.Over the last couple of years, Jitu has been a standout performer. He won gold in the 50m Air Pistol at both the 2014 Commonwealth and Asian Games and a clutch of medals on the World Cup circuit as well. He was the first Indian shooter to secure a spot for these Games and Pandit describes his current form as sublime. Jitu exudes an air of assured confidence and walks around with a cheeky glint in his eye. Pandit credits him for not succumbing to over analysis ahead of the biggest challenge of his young career. The 50m is his stronger suit but on his day Jitu can mix it with the best in the 10m as well. He is ranked third in the world in both events at the moment, establishhing his pedigree as among the elite shooters in the discipline. Custom Baltimore Ravens Jerseys. Jitu in fact is one of eight first-time Olympians in the contingent of 12 shooters who have qualified for these Olympics, the most ever for India in history. Besides the Naib-Subedar in the Indian army, two other debutants will be thrown into the deep end on Saturday itself. Apurvi Chandela and Ayonika Paul, both 23, will also be in action in the 10m Air rifle. They completed a memorable 1-2 by clinching gold & silver respectively at the 2014 Commonwealth games but in Rio, but will have no illusions about the the fact that the ferocity of the challenge at an Olympics is on an altogether different level.Of the four shooters with previous Olympics experience - Abhinav Bindra, Gagan Narang, Manavjit Sandhu and Heena Sidhu - two, Bindra and Narang have clinched podium places. Bindra, who will be the flag bearer of the Indian contingent at the opening ceremony tonight, has announced that his career will end once he completes his event, the 10m Air rifle, on August 8. Narang, who is at his fourth Olympics is set to compete in three different events as he looks to add to the bronze he won at London in 2012. As the the senior statesmen of the squad, it is no surprise that the first timers are gravitating towards them, eager to imbibe all they can to tackle the unique challenges of a high visibility occasion such as this.It shows us that people can survive so many Olympics, says Pandit about the value of having shooters of such eminence in the contingent. Whenever you have an issue, or you are experiencing jitters you can always look up to them and speak to them about their experiences because they have different things to put on the table compared to someone who is shooting for the first time.It has the makings of an intriguing week at the Olympic shooting centre. Since Rajyavardhan Rathore broke a glass ceiling in 2004 at Athens with his Double Trap silver, Indian shooting has been on a steady upward curve. These are set up to be a breakthrough Olympics, one that may well end with what Pandit assures will be the best medal count so far. If that were to indeed happen, one would imagine the boss man of the shooting federation wont settle for McDonalds to have a celebratory meal. ' ' '
