SAN FRANCISCO - The Golden State Warriors have released new renderings for their planned San Francisco arena after the last design became an Internet punchline for its resemblance to a toilet. Jose Bautista Jersey .The updated concepts announced by the Warriors on Wednesday show a more curved look for the arena. Much of the viewing deck next to the arena — which together previously gave the aerial appearance of a giant toilet seat with the lid down — is now gone.The new renderings for the privately funded project — expected to cost more than $1 billion — in the citys Mission Bay neighbourhood also show a waterfront park across the street and two public plazas. The team said the arena will seat 18,064 and is expected to open by the start of the 2018-19 season.The Warriors played their first nine seasons in San Francisco after moving from Philadelphia in 1962. They have played across San Francisco Bay in Oakland since the 1971-72 season. Asdrubal Cabrera Jersey .Pete Morelli said the back judge threw a flag on Cowboys linebacker Anthony Hitchens on a pass to Lions tight end Brandon Pettigrew in Dallas 24-20 wild-card win Sunday. But the head linesman said there wasnt enough contact and that Hitchens was face-guarding, which isnt a penalty in the NFL. Noah Syndergaard Jersey . Huntington doesnt want to help run the club unless Hurdle is in the dugout. The combination thats returned the franchise to respectability will remain intact for years to come.The great Usain Bolt made a winning return to action in the mens 200m at Londons Olympic Stadium to cap a great night of athletics at the Anniversary Games. Bolt was the headline act but a plethora of world class performers were on show at the Diamond League event and Kendra Harrison proved best of the bunch, setting a new world record in the womens 100m hurdles.Bolt had not run since pulling out of the Jamaican trials last month with a hamstring strain but clocked 19.89 seconds in his first 200m of the year as he proved his fitness ahead of the Rio Olympics next month. Bolt will bid for a third successive Olympic sprint double in Rio The six-time Olympic gold medallist and world record holder at 100m and 200m was not at his brilliant best and had to work harder than usual in the closing stages, but finished clear of Panamas Edward Alonso (20.04) and Britains Adam Gemili (20.07).Bolt, who turns 30 next month, said: I thought it wasnt perfect.I came off the corner, just tried to hold my form and do the work. Im happy with the execution and hopefully my coach is.Im definitely feeling good. Im glad I could come here, run, finish the race, no injuries.Im happy about that and Im going to Rio to defend my titles.The performance of the night came in the womens 100m hurdles, as Harrison destroyed the field to set a new world record of 12.20 seconds.Incredibly, the 23-year-old American will not be going to Rio, after she could only finish in sixth at the US trials two weeks ago.However, she was in a different league on this occasion, coming home well clear to beat the old record of 12.21sec set by Bulgarias Yordanka Donkova on August 20, 1988.Brianna Rollins (12.57), Kristi Castlin (12.59) and Ali Nia (12.63), all Rio-bound after finishing 1-2-3 in the US trials, were left trailing by Harrison on this occasion. Kendra Harrison celebrates her world record run Im just so full of emotions, said Harrison, whose previous best was the 12.24 she ran in May.Not making that Olympic team, I knew I had to come out here and show the world I still had it in me.My coach has been telling me since day one that I had it in me. I still have a few weeks to go, so I am going to try and lower that time.Jesssica Ennis-Hill came home last in the final but had earlier fired out a warning to her Olympic heptathlon rivals by running her second fastest ever time. Juan Lagares Jersey. The 30-year-old, back at the Olympic Stadium where she memorably took gold at London 2012, clocked 12.76 seconds to finish third in her heat.It smashed her seasons best of 13.10 and was her fastest time since the London Games, when she ran 12.54.Im so happy to run a seasons best and it makes me confident, with Rio next, said Ennis-Hill.I wouldve liked to have gone quicker in the final, but just smacked a hurdle really bad and lost all momentum and that was it.In the high jump, Ennis-Hills team-mate and heptathlon rival Katarina Johnson-Thompson made a welcome return to form by jumping an outdoor personal best of 1.95m to finish in third.The newly-laid track at the Olympic Stadium was clearly very fast and Great Britains womens 4x100m relay team gave themselves a major pre-Olympic boost by setting a new national record and running the fastest time in the world this year.The quartet of Asha Philip, Desiree Henry, Dina Asher-Smith and Daryll Neita scorched round the track to claim an emphatic victory in 41.81. Asha Philip celebrates after Great Britain produced a fine display in the 4x100m relay There was also a brilliant performance from Laura Muir, who broke Kelly Holmes British 1,500m record with a hugely impressive display, pulling well clear of the field to come home in 3:57.49.The 23-year-old triumphed by more than three seconds and eclipsed double Olympic champion Holmes mark of 3:57.90 from the Athens Olympics in 2004.Muir said: Im over the moon with that. Its not just any record, its Kelly Holmes Olympic gold medal record. Its great to have.Ive always said I run for times, I run for places. I run for medals. But to get the record along the way is one of the biggest achievements of my career.Christine Ohuruogu completely justified her inclusion in the British team for the individual 400m in Rio by running the fastest time in the country this year at 51.05, but it was only good enough for fifth place as Shaunae Miller of the Bahamas took victory in a world-leading 49.55.
