TOKYO -- The Japanese government approved a 150 billion yen ($1.5 billion) contract Friday to build a new main stadium for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, a project that has been delayed by more than a year.Officials said the stadium construction would begin in December after an earlier plan was scrapped because of spiraling costs and an unpopular design.The Japan Sport Council, a government-funded organization operating the project, said the stadium was scheduled for completion at the end of November 2019, still five months behind schedule. The delay forced a venue change for the Rugby World Cup that Japan is also hosting in 2019.The cost of an earlier design by the late Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid had risen to 265 billion yen ($2.65 billion), more than twice the initial forecast.The 150 billion ($1.5 billion) contract is just below the 155 billion ($1.55 billion) ceiling set this time for the contractors, a joint venture among Taisei Corp., Azusa Sekkei Co. and the office of Kengo Kuma, an architect who designed the new stadium.Olympic Minister Tamayo Marukawa told reporters she would ensure steady progress of the construction.Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike said she would closely monitor the expensive project that the city is also part-funding.For the burden we have to share, I will ensure its utilized for the people of Tokyo, and raise my voice when necessary, she said.A sports ministry panel is discussing how best the stadium can be used after the Tokyo Games.The stadium delay is part of Japans troubled preparations for the Olympics, underscoring a widespread lack of cost-control. The Japanese organizers have also faced a bribery scandal. They are now also bracing for a possible delay in the construction of roads linking the main Olympic venues near a new fish market project, which has been hit by a construction scandal and tainted underground water.The Tokyo metropolitan government is currently reviewing the ballooning cost because of concern about its financial burden and the impact on Tokyo taxpayers.The city-appointed panel of outside experts warned in a report Thursday that the total cost could exceed 3 trillion yen ($30 billion) without a drastic cost-cutting effort, and suggested using existing facilities instead of building new ones that could likely end up as white elephants.---Follow Mari Yamaguchi at https://www.twitter.com/mariyamaguchiFind her work also at: http://bigstory.ap.org/content/mari-yamaguchi Yeezy Boost 350 v2 Cream White Pas Cher .

LAS VEGAS -- Neither rain nor heat nor an 8 percent administrative fee could keep football contest players from their appointed rounds.The famous Westgate Las Vegas SuperContest drew a record 1,854 entries despite an earlier announcement that it would take 8 percent out of the prize pool to cover costs of running the contest. This is the seventh straight year that the number of entries has increased -- there was a seven-year low of 328 entries in 2009 when the one-name handicapper known as Fezzik won the second of his back-to-back titles. SuperContestants pay $1,500 to enter and make five ATS picks a week on NFL games.Westgate collected $2,781,000 in entry fees, and the prize pool will be $2,558,520 after the takeout with the champion, who wins 35 percent of the prize pool, taking home $895,482. This falls short of last year when there were 1,727 entries for a prize pool of $2,590,500 and a Denver-area man using the alias rounding again won $906,675.The SuperContest pays out to the top 50 finishers, plus the Westgate increased the bonus for exceeding 67 percent winners from $15,000 to $20,000 and offering the same to the winner of its mini-contest over the last three weeks of the season for those that signed up by the early-bird deadline on Labor Day.In the first weekend of the NFL season, 78 SuperContestants went a perfect 5-0 to share the early lead while another 352 went 4-1. On the downside, there were two entrants that failed to put in their plays along with 58 others off to 0-5 starts.Well continue to follow the SuperContest here at ESPN Chalk with weekly updates. Updated standings and weekly selections from all players can be found on Westgates website, and I also follow the action in the forums at my ViewFromVegas.com website.Golden Nugget contest also sees growthThe biggest competition to the SuperContest in Las Vegas is the Friday Football Showdown at the Golden Nugget. Formerly an invitational open to public handicappers and media members, the Golden Nugget opened the field to the public last year, drawing 87 entrants. This year there are 96.There were a lot of people expecting the Friday Football Showdown, which has a higher price-point at $2,000, to have a biggger increase as it still pays back 100 percent of entry fees to players, but not enough people made the switch.dddddddddddd. The Nugget contest also allows players to pick NFL over/unders as well as NCAA sides and totals in making seven picks a week.This contest has a unique format in which everyone picks games over the first eight weeks with the top seven records advancing to the playoffs -- and then a wild-card chase in Weeks 9 and 10 for the eighth and final berth -- that are held in head-to-head matches on The Las Vegas Sportsline radio show on Fridays on ESPN AM 1100. Updated standings and players selections (as well as the complete rules) can be found on the Golden Nugget website.On the opening weekend, four players -- Jenny Butler, Doc Holliday, Bryan Leonard and Hells Kitchen -- went a perfect 7-0, with another four -- DSHOT702, DMILL, RoughRider39 and Mucked Nuts -- going 6-0-1.College Pick Em draws 162 in redux at William HillWe had a two-year hiatus from having a college-only ATS contest in Las Vegas, but William Hill revived its College Pick Em contest with a $500 entry fee and drew 162 entrants.Players make seven picks against the spread each week for 10 weeks starting with the Week 2 games (they dont use the first week of NCAA games to garner people who are entering contests in the week leading up to NFL Week 1). William Hill had guaranteed a prize pool of $25,000, but with the 162 entries it now has a pool of $81,000 with $56,700 (70 percent) going to the eventual champion.In the opening week, two contestants went 7-0 with another eight at 6-1. College Pick Em doesnt have players use aliases, and instead just lists the standings with players entry numbers. The standings and complete rules can be found on the William Hill US website.Note: There is a second college-only ATS contest in Las Vegas. Its a free roll at the Wildfire Gaming casinos, where players pick 10 NCAA games each week against the contest spread and play for $500 in weekly prizes. The season-long champion wins a trip for two to the 2017 Rose Bowl (or $1,500 in cash). ' ' '
