James Worthy Jersey .Bobsleds world governing body, known as the FIBT, has opened the four-man competitions to mixed gender teams.Teams consisting of a female pilot driving and men push-starting the bob could now be seen on the World Cup circuit from December and at the world championships in February next year.I strongly believe women can drive a four-man and be competitive, FIBT President Ivo Ferriani said in a telephone interview on Thursday. For us, its the natural evolution of our sport.The 2018 Winter Olympics staged in Pyeongchang, South Korea, is a natural target for mixed teams, though Ferriani cautioned it was too soon to create too much speculation.Its important to make the first step, the Italian officials said. To analyze the situation and give the opportunity, and to have some terms of reference.Previously, women competed only in two-athlete bobs and men competed in twos and fours.There are no plans for adding fours to the all-female competitions, but Ferriani said the rules are open on what the gender balance can be in a four-member crew on the mens circuit.At the moment we dont have any limits, he said. I think, personally, a woman pilot with three men can be strong.Two-time Olympic champion Kaillie Humphries of Canada has said she wants to pilot a bob pushed by three male teammates.Ferriani said mixed teams could first take part in World Cup races at a Dec. 15-21 meet in December at Calgary, Canada.They must prove in the qualification process they are at the right level, he said.After the eight-meeting World Cup circuit, the world championships are held Feb. 23-Mar. 1 in Winterberg, Germany. Derek Fisher Jersey . The Italian side scored twice in a four-minute span in the second half to defeat former stars from S. Michael Cooper Jersey . - Regan Smith had the checkered flag in sight at Daytona a year ago and a freight train of cars in his rearview mirror.PASADENA, Calif. -- Manchester United made an impressive debut under coach Louis van Gaal on Wednesday night, with Wayne Rooney scoring twice late in the first half of a 7-0 victory over the LA Galaxy. Ashley Young and unsung defender Reece James scored two second-half goals apiece as United opened its summer tour with a surprisingly polished win over MLS overmatched Galaxy in the Guinness International Champions Cup. Danny Welbeck scored the first goal for Van Gaal, who has had limited work with his new club after leading the Netherlands to a third-place finish at the World Cup earlier this month. United still outclassed the Galaxy in the meeting of David Beckhams two former clubs. Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera also made their United debuts at the historic Rose Bowl. Van Gaals tenure got off to a start reflecting the confidence of Uniteds veteran coach, who intends to return the 20-time English champions to immediate international prominence after David Moyes poor tenure. United finished seventh in Moyes only season as Alex Fergusons replacement after 26 years, failing even to qualify for Europa League play. Van Gaal is still adjusting to his new job after spending the summer with the Dutch team, but he is already planning to spend more time around Old Trafford next summer. Van Gaal spoke out against lucrative preseason tours this week, saying the lengthy U.S. stay hinders his preparations for the season. Van Gaal might not like the summer tour, but United got it off to a sparkling start with goals from likely and unlikely sources. Rooney wasnt Uniteds captain, ceding the job to Darren FFletcher, but the England star easily handled his scoring chances. Robert Horry Jersey. James wasnt even listed on Uniteds 25-man roster, but the 20-year-old defender provided two outstanding finishes against the Galaxys ragged defence. Herrera, the Spanish midfielder acquired from Athletic Bilbao last month, also looked sharp early. United scored its first goal under Van Gaal when Juan Mata set up Welbeck in the 13th minute for a low 25-yard shot off Jaime Penedos post. After A.J. De La Garza was whistled for a handball in the 42nd minute, Rooney easily buried the penalty even though Penedo guessed correctly. Four minutes later, Welbecks centring pass went through the legs of Galaxy defender Tommy Meyer, who crumpled to the ground as Rooney walked the gift into Penedos net. James put a sharp side-footed finish on a pass from Young for Uniteds fourth goal in the 62nd minute. He then scored from distance on a deflection in the 82nd minute before Young capitalized on defensive blunders for two late goals. The Rose Bowl was largely full for the late-starting friendly, with United supporters easily outnumbering the home teams fans. Thousands of Mexican fans in the announced crowd of 86,432 likely showed up hoping to see embattled striker Javier Hernandez, but Chicharito stayed on Uniteds bench. Even at a friendly, several fans exchanged shoves and yells outside the venerable stadiums southwest gate before security intervened. Uniteds tour continues Saturday in Denver against AS Roma, followed by matches with Inter Milan in Washington on Tuesday and Real Madrid in Michigan on Aug. 2.
