SUVA, Fiji -- Former San Francisco 49ers running back Jarryd Hayne has failed in his bid to win selection in the Fiji rugby sevens team to compete at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Adidas Zx 750 g96718 .Hayne pre-empted the scheduled announcement of the Fiji team with a Facebook post Monday saying his time with the Fiji squad has ended.The former National Rugby League star who won a place on the 49ers roster as a rookie last year said he met with Fiji coach Ben Ryan last Friday and agreed he hasnt done enough to win Olympic selection.As much as I would have loved to go to Rio, I too knew I wasnt ready yet, he said. During my time with the team I pushed my body above and beyond. I used all my experience as a professional athlete and have tried every day and in every way possible to make this team and make it better but unfortunately, time has been against me.Fiji will start as favorite to win the gold medal at Rio de Janiero in the first Olympic rugby tournament since 1924. The Fijians won the World Sevens Series title in the season just ended, holding off South Africa and New Zealand, and have won the world championship of sevens in consecutive years.Hayne was a late addition this season, after quitting the NFL, and struggled to adapt to the pace and fitness demands of sevens in which teams play several matches in tournaments which last two to three days.Ive loved every minute of training with the Fiji Rugby 7s, Hayne said. Not only are they back-to-back world champions but they are a bunch of guys who have welcomed me into the team as one of their own family.Hayne, who has played rugby league for Australia, said his time with the Fiji team was an amazing journey for me and a truly humbling experience.Haynes post suggests he wont pursue his career in rugby sevens any further. Australian media reports suggest he is likely to return to the National Rugby League, though he is thought also to have been courted by Australian rugby union teams.For now, Ill be in camp with the team until mid-week before heading back home to Sydney for some time out and will determine my next steps from there, he said. Ill enjoy watching from afar and wish the team all the best of luck on their road to Rio. Adidas Zx Flux Multicolor Prism .

PETERSBURG, Fla. MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer, who had emergency surgery on a detached retina in his right eye Wednesday, will not coach against the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday night.General manager Rick Spielman announced Thursday morning that special teams coordinator Mike Priefer will assume interim head coaching responsibilities for the Cowboys game. Spielman said he did not know how much time the eye surgery -- Zimmers third in November -- would require the coach to miss. Priefer will be the interim head coach Thursday, though Spielman said the Vikings could take a different approach for future games if Zimmer is forced to miss additional time.I had numerous conversations last night before Coach Zimmer went under surgery. I talked to him numerous times this morning, going through the different scenarios, Spielman said. I believe, at this time, for this game, the best scenario is to have everybody do their roles. [Interim offensive coordinator] Pat [Shurmur] has spent all week getting the offense prepared. [Defensive coordinator] George Edwards has spent all week with the defense. This frees up them from those head-coaching responsibilities for tonights game, and we have the utmost confidence in Mike Priefer that hell be able to handle the interim coaching duties for tonight.Zimmer, who first experienced vision problems a few days before the Vikings game in Chicago on Oct. 31, had his initial surgery on his right eye Nov. 1, and had another operation on Nov. 8. The Vikings hoped at that point, Spielman said, that the second surgery would alleviate Zimmers vision problems, but the coachs vision decclined Wednesday afternoon, and doctors determined Zimmer would need emergency surgery. Adidas Sneakers Dames Uitverkoop. A follow-up appointment Thursday morning led the Vikings to conclude Zimmer would not coach Thursday.It will be the first game Zimmer has missed during his 23-year NFL coaching career. He will be resting at home Thursday night, able to watch on TV but prohibited by NFL rules from communicating with Vikings coaches during the game.As hard-headed as he is, and as tough-minded as he is, we had some pretty significant talks, one-on-one, heart-to-heart, on what is important in life, Spielman said. I expressed to him specifically that potentially going blind in one eye is not worth one game in the NFL. You have to look out for your long-term health, and you have to look out for whats best for you. He finally seemed to realize that today, but its very difficult for him to handle, because of his personality, because of his perseverance.Spielman would not discuss any long-term medical ramifications for Zimmer, including whether he could be at risk of permanent eye damage. The coach had been to regular checkups since his previous surgeries, and theres been steps in place to see if he can correct it without affecting his ability to be on the field, Spielman said.It got to a point where the surgery last night was more significant, Spielman said. We have to see how his eye responds to that surgery; its [been] a little over 12 hours right now. Well make all those determinations going forward. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
