Bagleys decision was revealed two days before he was to report to El Segundo, California, for the second week of training camp. Bagley (above) was not immediately replaced, and unless that changes the US will have 16 players still in the mix for 12 final roster spots. Bagley was on the select team younger NBA players brought in to compete against national team candidates last week in Las Vegas, and earned a promotion to the national team following USA Basketballs intra-squad scrimmage. Sacramento still has two players left as World Cup roster candidates, with Harrison Barnes and DeAaron Fox headed to camp this week. Boston has four Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart, Jayson Tatum and Kemba Walker. Milwaukees Brook Lopez and Khris Middleton remain candidates, with Brooklyns Joe Harris, the Los Angeles Lakers Kyle Kuzma, Torontos Kyle Lowry, Utahs Donovan Mitchell, Denvers Mason Pluelee, Houstons PJ Tucker, Indianas Myles Turner and San Antonios Derrick White. Biles lands triple-double THE choice was entirely hers. Only there really wasnt of one for Simone Biles to make. She could have taken her triple-twisting double-flip out of her floor exercise routine during the final night of the US Womens Gymnastics Championships yesterday. She did not need it to assure herself of another national title. Coach Laurent Landi left the option up to Biles after the Olympic champions bid to become the first woman to complete the triple-double in competition came up a bit short on Friday. Biles (above) threw it in at the end of her first tumbling pass. When the dizzying combin ation ended the jolt through the packed arena was palpable. The triple-double served as the exclamation point on Biless sixth national championship. Her two-day total of 118.500 was nearly five points clear of 16-year-old Sunisa Lee in second and almost seven points ahead of third-place finisher Grace McCallum. Yet Biles doesnt pay too much attention to her scores. I wanted to see how it looked, she said. Its like she hit a hole-inone and we were all there, USA Gymnastics high performance director Tom Forster said. Its a big deal and we all know it. Peru celebrates Games DANCERS in colourful costumes took the capacity crowd of 50,000 at Limas National Stadium and millions following across the world on a trip along Perus coast, over its mountains and deep into the dense forests and jungles of the Amazon. The Pan American Games closed yesterday with a ceremony that gathered nearly 1000 performers from more than a dozen nationalities. The ceremony that capped the 17-day multi-sport event paid homage to Andean civilisations, with the set design inspired by stonework from walls used by the Incas to build their colossal cities. But it also showed a modern side of Peru with a DJ mixing cumbia beats on a stageturned-dancefloor, and colourful Chicha posters and graffiti that are often on display on the streets of Lima. The Games featured the debut of surfing in a country that is known as the Hawaii of South America and that rode a wave of support at home to dominate with gold medals and a likely ticket to Tokyo 2020. Nearly 7000 athletes competed in the games. A record 21 of the 61 sporting disciplines served as qualifiers for next years Olympics. The Americans finished atop the medal standings with 293, followed by Brazil with 171 and Mexico with 136. British Virgin Islands and Aruba won their first medals.
