RIO DE JANEIRO -- So this is what the year-in, year-out relentless talking about chasing perfection that starts at the top with Martha Karolyi and trickles on down to every gymnast on the five-woman U.S. Olympic team can do: Sometimes, crazy as it sounds, the idea actually does start animating every goal, permeating everyones thoughts, shaping what their dreams look like, until they get to the point where here they are in Rio, and near-perfection is literally, actually coming true.With three days down in the Olympic womens gymnastics competition and three days of individual events to go, the U.S. team is halfway to a perfect sweep of all six of the available gold medals that will be awarded here in Rio, a pie-in-the-sky sounding thought that nobody was really talking that much about before these Games began.Now look: The U.S. defended its team gold on Tuesday. Simone Biles and Aly Raisman finished 1-2 in the individual all-around on Thursday night, extending the American teams hold on that title to four straight Olympics.Biles -- already the most decorated female gymnast in history - has also qualified first for the individual events finals in the vault, floor exercise and beam and could take gold in all three. Teammate Madison Kocian has the highest qualifying score in the remaining event, the uneven bars, where shes a reigning world co-champion, and Gabby Douglas qualified third-best in that event, just a tenth of a point behind her. If Biles would falter on floor or beam, Raisman and Laurie Hernandez were the second-best qualifiers on those events behind her, respectively.But could they really run the table? Finish perfect? Pull off a clean sweep of six golds in six events?That would just be crazy, Biles admitted.Notice she also didnt rule it out.Its mind over matter, Raisman said, describing her philosophy about she frames whats possible and how she navigates doubt. If you believe you can or you cant, you probably will.Both of them looked a little weary Friday morning when they met the press. The wakeup call and ride to the Olympic main press center for their 9:30 a.m. session with Kocian, Douglas and Hernandez had to feel like it came early for them. It was the morning after an emotional night that Biles repeatedly called the best day of her 19-year-old life, but now the just-crowned Olympic all-around champion sat on the edge of the dais, trying to stay off her feet. Down the line, Raisman was re-living what she called her redemptive performance for the silver medal and how gratified she felt about her 4-for-4 night without a bobble in her routines, but she also sat in a chair, conserving energy.If they were exhausted, they wouldnt admit it.I think if you ask [multi-event swimmer] Michael Phelps, he would say the same thing -- you know you have less left to do, so you just keep going, said Biles.If Biles, the reigning three-time world champion, does sweep all three of her remaining events, and Kocians, Hernandezs, Raismans and Douglas coming performances match their qualifying scores, the U.S. team could walk away from these Olympics with a total of 14 medals scattered among the five-woman team. Thats extraordinary.So far, they have hit all 20 routines theyve thrown. If they go 7-for-7 in the coming three days, pushing them to 27-for-27 at this competition, that Final Five nickname theyve chosen for themselves -- partly as an homage to 73-year-old Karolyi, who is retiring after Rio -- might seem too pedestrian to capture it all.It could be a long time before the sport sees a team as deep and talented and immune to pressure as this team has been.Told Friday they are making this look easy, Biles -- ever the cold-eyed pragmatist -- looked at the TV reporter who made the statement and said, Well, thats our job, crinkling her nose a little as if its so obvious. If we make it look tough, she added, I think it would be a problem.Everyone laughed.Raisman is right, of course, to say the teams relentless pursuit of perfection is a mindset as much as happy accident of timing that put them all together like this at the same time and place in history. Both she and Aimee Boorman, Biles coach, have paid homage again and again the past two days to Karolyis tone-setting guidance. Boorman told a story about how when Biles got to the beam Thursday night, the most landmine-strewn of all the events, and she was trailing Russias Aliya Mustafina by a few tenths, I was thinking, JUST DONT FALL Boorman admitted. But Simone just looked at me and said, I got this. Thats something Martha does such a great job with them. She teaches them that attitude throughout their training. She tells them, How many times have you done these sets?Now theyre at the point they repeat it all reflexively -- the mantra, their sets, the all-for-one attitude that Karolyi also insisted on. As Mihai Brestyan, Raismans longtime personal coach, said, You have all the time the biggest expectations. But then here, you seen its happening! As Raisman finished her final event, the floor, Thursday night, she could see him out of the corner of her eye, pumping his fists and starting to cry.After the medals by Biles and Raisman were won, it was actually a little humorous Thursday night to see Karolyi -- ever the teacher, forever a coach -- lingering in the nearly empty mixed-zone press area long after the all-around event was over, energetically explaining the perfection mantra to an overseas TV crew who asked her how the U.S. program became this good. It was like watching a preacher who loves to spread the Word. The longer Karolyi has preached chasing perfection, the more it has seemed to come true. Sixteen years ago when she started imprinting the idea on the drifting U.S. program, it seemed like a buzzword shed dusted off from the days she coached Nadia Comenci to a gold medals and perfect 10s at the 1976 Games. No one says that anymore.Karolyi likes to say, Perfection is an attitude, not just an act. Right now, no team at these Games looks as perfect as this U.S. gymnastics team. Appreciate them before theyre gone. It will be fascinating to see if they can keep it up for four more events. Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Authentic .

In light of the Halo World Championship that took place in March, 343 Industries partnered with ESL to produce the first ever Halo Championship Series: Pro League. Some of the best teams in North America qualified and were put through a seven-week gauntlet that will culminate with the Summer Finals this weekend.The top four teams will go on to face off for a chance at being crowned the North American Halo champions while the fifth and sixth teams are safe until next season. The bottom two teams will be forced to fight their way back into the HCS Pro League through a relegation-style tournament where two top amateur teams will be waiting to contend for the spots.Heres what you need to know heading into the Summer Finals.The top contendersCounter Logic GamingPaul Snakebite Duarte Matthew Royal 2 Fiorante Bradley Frosty Bergstrom TJ Lethul CampbellAfter the dust of the regular season settled, four teams remained but one team stood head and shoulders above the rest. Counter Logic Gaming, winners of the Halo World Championship in March, finished in first place with only one blemish on its otherwise perfect record. Heading into the HCS Pro League, CLG dominated the conversation, along with the competition by not dropping a single series.But as people began to wonder if the team would ever lose, CLG were handed its first series loss by Enigma6. Luckily, the team didnt drop a series again to wrap up its regular season with a six-series win streak. CLG bled only slightly but this squad has been the standard of consistency since its formation and is still heavily favored to take the event.Enigma 6Carlos Cratos Ayala Cuyler Huke Garland Jesse Bubu Dubu Moeller Ryan Shooter SondhiEnigma6s season has been plagued by highs and lows, but it caught fire at the right time. The first time we saw this roster was at the PAX East Invitational and its debut was underwhelming at best. A last place finish, which included a loss at the hands of Optic Gaming, was the low point of its season while taking down CLG and finishing in second place established it as one of the best teams in North America. E6 enter the Summer Finals on a wave of confidence and is the team most likely to dethrone CLG.Team EnVyUsAustin Mikwen McCleary Justin Pistola Deese Visal el TowwN Mohanan Timothy Rayne TinklerTeam EnVyUs arrive at the Summer Finals as the third seed.dddddddddddd It was the first to show CLG have dents in the armor by taking the team to five games in Week 4. Does it have the potential to do so again? With Pistola and Mikwen, talented players who were left out after failing to qualify for the Halo World Championship, the team will be looking for revenge. Its shown that it can hang with the best, but the team has a hard time closing out series. It might explain why Envy carries a losing record against the rest of the teams in the top four.Cloud9Tyler Ninja Blevins Hamza Commonly Abbaali Cameron Victory X Thorlakson Zane Penguin HearonNinja is one of the most well-known and, at times, most dangerous players in the HCS Pro League, and Victory X has been competing since 2005, which brings maturity and experience to the roster. The team almost didnt make it into the Summer Finals and left its fate in the hands of Counter Logic Gaming, which was slated to compete against Evil Geniuses. Luckily, CLG swept EG 3-0 and secured the teams spot.Fighting for their livesTeam LiquidTyler Spartan Ganza Braedon Stellur Boettcher Kevin Eco Smith Dan Danoxide TerlizziTeam Liquid were one of two teams to make its way into the HCS Pro League and were winless until Week 4. The higher ranked of the two relegated teams gets to choose which amateur team itll face in the tournament. Team Liquid upset fourth place Renegades to finish the season 2-12, the same record Optic Gaming finished with. Due to map win percentage, Team Liquid enter the tournament as the seventh seed and its late season heroics should provide the momentum it needs to defend its spot.Optic GamingNick Maniac Kershner Aaron Ace Elam Cory Str8 Sick Sloss Bradley APG LawsFan favorite Optic Gaming were the last team to make its way into the HCS Pro League through the Last Chance Qualifier, and now it has to prove it belongs with its performance in the relegation tournament. Its last place finish means that it lacks the luxury of choosing its opponent and will have to address its gameplay if it wants to remain among the best.
