RIO DE JANEIRO -- Yelena Isinbayeva walked away from competing but not from her sport on Friday.The womens pole vault world record holder announced her retirement as she focuses on a new career in sports politics and considers an offer to lead Russian track and field.Isinbayeva was prevented from seeking a third Olympic title in Rio de Janeiro after the IAAF banned all but one Russian track and field athlete from the games over their countrys state-sponsored doping scandal.She still traveled to Rio to campaign in the election for the athletes representative on the International Olympic Committee. A day after being among the four winning candidates, the 34-year-old Isinbayeva decided she doesnt want to compete anymore.Today in Rio on Aug. 19, 2016, Yelena Isinbayeva is finishing her professional career, she said close to the end of a 50-minute news conference.Yesterdays election to the IOC commission inspired me, Isinbayeva added through a translator. It means I am not saying goodbye to the sport. I say goodbye to the pole, to my medals ... I fulfilled my dreams.And without doping, she maintains.I have proved it again and again, she said. All my tests were negative.One of her priorities now is campaigning for Russias IAAF suspension to be lifted so fellow clean athletes can resume their professional careers. Isinbayeva could be taking on that mission as the top administrator in Russian athletics.I have received an offer to head up the federation, Isinbayeva said. It is an interesting offer but it is also a serious challenge.When I get back from the Olympics I will meet the president of the federation. We will talk about my future role. I find it very interesting ... I think I can bring the federation back into the IAAF fold.Isinbayeva remains aggrieved about the IAAFs treatment of Russia. She said it speaks volumes about the IAAF leadership that they didnt congratulate her for being one of four successful candidates in the IOC athletes commission election.I am a bit offended, she said. We are the same team ... but for some reason I didnt receive any congratulations.Although Isinbayeva said she forgives IAAF president Sebastian Coe for the injustice of banning Russia, she said: Let it be on their conscience. God will be their judge.Isinbayeva also railed against the unfair investigations by the World Anti-Doping Agency, which has published reports in the last year by investigators Dick Pound and Richard McLaren.All of the accusations that have leveled have been built upon assumptions, there are no facts, no proof but for some reason (McLarens) assumptions were sufficient to raise the question of banning the entire Russian team (from the Olympics), Isinbayeva said. I would like to see more facts, more specific proof against specific athletes.She urged sports administrators to be dignified in developing sport rather than fostering some useful war.Isinbayeva won gold medals at the 2004 Athens Olympics and 2008 Beijing Games. She took bronze four years ago in London and will be elsewhere in Rio rather than watching the womens Olympic pole vault final on Friday night.When you compete without Isinbayeva this isnt going to be a fully-fledged gold medal, she said.

Francis told several hundred members of the European Olympic Committees that when sport "is considered only in economic terms and consequently for victory at every cost . State against state? Not in this game, says Graham Arnold.The Sydney FC coach doesnt care what colour kit Brisbane wear - orange, white or Queenslands maroon.The third-placed Roar will attempt to end A-League leaders Sydney FCs perfect - 6-0 - season start in Saturdays home clash, a clash they are billing as a State vs State affair.They will run out in in a special maroon jersey for the first time when they face the sky blue of the visitors on Suncorp Stadium, also the home of Queenslands beloved State of Origin rugby league team, whove regularly dominated the NSW Blues.The colour switch is a big deal north of the Tweed River, with the jerseys presented to Roar players by Maroons Origin legend Billy Moore this week.It doesnt matter if its rugby league, football or marbles. When sky blue plays maroon, everyone north of the Tweed cares, Moore said.The significance, however, was lost on FC coach Arnold, who isnt buying into talk of a state rivalry in Australian soccer.Its not ruugby league, its football, Arnold told reporters on Thursday.dddddddddddd.It doesnt matter what colour jerseys theyre in. Theyre still the same human beings - same bodies, same talent, same quality.Well go up there with the intention of suffocating them.It could also bring bad luck. Theyve never worn maroon.Adding another element of spice was Roar defender Jade Norths recent description of the Sky Blues perfect start to the season as lucky, particularly in conceding a competition-best only two goals in 2016-17.Rather than lucky, Arnold believes it was their opposition who were fortunate not have succumbed to heavier defeats.All Ill say is last week, we had 47 entries into Perth Glorys penalty box ... and we only scored four goals, Arnold said.Were nowhere near the finished product. Were still operating at about 60-65 per cent of where well end up. ' ' '
