BANGKOK - The 2022 Winter Olympics will remain in the traditional February time slot and will not be moved to make way for a rescheduled World Cup in Qatar, the head of the worlds national Olympic committees said Thursday. Lee Roy Selmon Jersey .FIFA is currently considering moving the World Cup to avoid the summer heat in Qatar, including a possible shift to January-February — a period that would clash with the Olympics.Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah, president of the Association of National Olympic Committees, said the Winter Games arrangements are already locked in and the onus is on the World Cup to avoid clashing with the Olympics rather than the other way around.Sheikh Ahmad, a powerful IOC member who also heads Asias Olympic association, said the World Cup timing is an issue for FIFA and not the International Olympic Committee.The Olympics should be maintained, Sheikh Ahmad said. The IOC will maintain their time because we already have been committed, the organizers have been organized, the broadcasting, the marketing partners.The IOC has repeatedly said that it has assurances from FIFA President Sepp Blatter that the two events will not clash.FIFA said Monday it was targeting two options for moving the World Cup — January-February and November-December. The January-February option is favoured by FIFAs confederations. European soccer clubs prefer April-May.Sheikh Ahmad said he is confident that FIFA will ensure that the World Cup and Olympics do not overlap.They are the best two events in the world, he told a small group of reporters on the sidelines of ANOC meetings in Bangkok. (FIFA) will analyze this and they will try to come up with the best solution how they will make it without touching each other, achieving the interest of each.Somebody is talking about January and February before the games, somebody speaking about October and November and others asking to maintain in August. Let the commission do their homework, but I am 100 per cent confident they will never be at the same time.Beijing and the Kazakhstan city of Almaty are the only two remaining bidders for 2022 after several cities dropped out of the running. They will give formal presentations to the ANOC assembly on Friday.The opposition to the World Cup being hosted in Qatars summer heat had also been regarded as diminishing the chances of a Middle East country hosting the summer games in 2024 or beyond.Sheikh Ahmad, who is from Kuwait, said that was an issue that will be addressed as part of the IOCs Olympic Agenda 2020 reforms. The reforms will be voted on at a special IOC assembly in Monaco next month.The ANOC chief said there needs to be more flexibility over the timing of the Summer Olympics to broaden the list of candidate cities. He cited Dubai and Doha as examples of Middle East cities that could host the 2024 Games.(Dubai) is capable. They dont have to do anything, only the sporting facility, Sheikh Ahmad said. They have the airport, the hotel, the accommodation, the name, the tourism. We have capable cities in our region which can bid for the games whenever they want.This is something we have to discuss in the 2020 agenda. We have to respect the south zone of the world. When we did it in Sydney, we did it in October. We have to put two periods of time: one achieves the north and one achieves the south.He said Doha, which bid for the 2016 and 2020 Olympics but failed to make the list of finalists both times, could be successful next time.The last time (Dohas bid failed) I dont know why it was, because they had almost all the federations accept the time change. Only maybe one federation gave disapproval, Sheikh Ahmad said. In any case, Doha is now in a position better than the last few years. If ever they will go again, I think they will be on the short list. Kendell Beckwith Jersey .C. -- The shot that would have beaten No. Cameron Brate Jersey . -- Nelson Cruz has only two hits in 15 at-bats against the Kansas City Royals this season. http://www.shoptheofficialbuccaneers.com/Elite-Keith-Tandy-Buccaneers-Jersey/ . And former Maple Leafs coach Ron Wilson certainly knows his pain. "Its pretty hard to coach there without allowing some of these things to kind of affect you," Wilson told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun in his ESPN.A night after reaching the top of the Eastern Conference, the Pittsburgh Penguins will be back on the ice trying to avoid handing that status to the streaking Montreal Canadiens. If the result is anything like its been between the two teams over the last four seasons, the Penguins wont have to worry about being passed by the visiting Canadiens tonight. The Penguins (24-9-5) joined the New York Islanders at the top of the East with Fridays 6-3 win over Tampa Bay as Steve Downie announced his return with two goals after missing five games with the mumps. Downie has nine points in seven games, while Sidney Crosby broke out with four assists after a 12-game stretch during which he had five points. Chris Kunitz scored for a second straight game, and Evgeni Malkins goal and assist snapped a three-game streak without a point. We have guys coming back slowly and I think that gave us a boost, Crosby said. As we get guys back, hopefully we can feed off that and continue to play the right way. More forward help could come against the Canadiens (25-11-2), who have won five straight and eight of nine while limiting opponents to 12 goals. David Perron could debut for the Penguins after being acquired Friday for Rob Klinkhammer and a 2015 first-round pick. Perron had career highs in goals (28) and points (57) a season ago but has failed to continue at that pace this season with five goals and 19 points in 38 games. At the stage Im at in my career, I think the first few years youre just happy to be in the league and to get more ice time and more opportunities. After a few years you just want to win, Perron told the leaguees official website. Donovan Smith Jersey. Obviously its not going to happen this year in Edmonton. Its nice to get an opportunity in Pittsburgh and to have that kind of trust they did to acquire me. Should Carey Price be in goal, Perron might have to wait on his first goal with his new team. Price made 22 saves in Fridays 4-2 win in New Jersey, the 200th of his career, to help put Montreal in a position to complete a perfect five-game road trip and match its best winning streak of the season. The Canadiens are a point back of the Penguins and Islanders. Price has won four straight starts and hasnt allowed more than two goals in a game over a 7-1-0 span during which he has a 1.38 goals-against average and .952 save percentage. Its a lot of fun to be able to accomplish that tonight, Price said of win No. 200. There have been ups and downs along the way, but to finally get this means a lot. The organization will do a nice job and put the puck on a plaque. Its just fun right now to come to the rink, and play with these guys. Its been a very different story against Pittsburgh. Price has a 4.20 GAA over a 1-4-1 span. That includes the Penguins 4-0 win in Montreal on Nov. 18 as Pittsburgh improved to 8-1-2 in the series with 3.91 goals per game since the start of the 2011-12 season. Montreal backup Dustin Tokarski has never faced the Penguins. Marc-Andre Fleury will start for Pittsburgh after getting the night off against Tampa Bay. Fleury had a 1.25 GAA in eight home starts in December, and he made 27 saves in the November shutout of the Canadiens to improve to 7-1-2 in his past 10 starts in the series.
