AKRON, Ohio -- Shane Lowry of Ireland says if the Olympics were anywhere other than Rio de Janeiro, he would be the first to show up. Instead, he is the sixth golfer to withdraw because of the Zika virus.Lowry, who got married in April, said he wants to start a family and soon and he received firm medical advice from doctors in Dublin that he should not go to Rio. He joins Rory McIlroy as the top two Irish golfers who wont be in the Olympics because of Zika concerns.That means Padraig Harrington at No. 159 in the world and Seamus Power (No. 283) would play for the Irish flag in Rio.Theres too much of a gray area for me, Lowry said. Theres not a 100 percent way of saying you have it or you dont have it when you get back, so thats a problem for me and my wife, especially. If I came back from Rio and was able to say 100 percent that I didnt have it? Then it might be a different story.Lowry said he read all the material from the PGA Tour and European Tour and met specialists in Dublin.They left it to me, he said. But they advised me that if I went to them and said I was going to Rio on a holiday, they would advise me not to go. It was our decision. It was a tough decision to make. Because I wanted to go.Others who have withdrawn specifically because of Zika are Jason Day, Charl Schwartzel, Branden Grace and Marc Leishman. Lowry said if he were single, that potentially would change his plans. And if the Olympics were elsewhere?One hundred percent, Id be there. Id be the first person there, he said. I was going for the whole lot and planning to stay on afterward. But Im recently married, were thinking about starting a family and its not ideal to be going places like that.Four other golfers already have pulled out for reasons beyond Zika, such as a crammed schedule. Lowry believes the threat of Zika has to be considered more for golf than most other sports.We do seem to be more at risk, he said. Were on the golf course for six hours a day, seven hours a day. Other athletes are in a stadium. This is just my opinion, but other athletes have been training four and eight years to go to Olympics. I can see why theyre going. Its the pinnacle of their sport. Its not the pinnacle of golf yet. It could be in 20 years time.On Wednesday, speaking ahead of the Open de France, McIlroy said he has no regrets about his decision to skip the Rio Olympics.I have four Olympic Games [major championships] a year, he said. Thats my pinnacle. Thats what I play for. cheap jerseys from china .

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick hosted a Know Your Rights camp for Oakland-area youth Saturday, an event designed to expand his focus on social and racial injustice beyond his national anthem protest.This is exciting for me because I see a lot of hope, what is to come, Kaepernick said beforehand, in an interview with The Undefeateds Marc J. Spears.Kaepernick said the campers, who numbered around 100, would have sessions to learn about situations with police, their rights, holistic health, financial literacy, and understanding both community and self. He said the camps aim is to empower youth, give them resources and tools to deal with difficult situations.We want to let them know they have options and people that are behind them to help them, he said. And thats a powerful thing, for someone else to have belief in you.The struggling 49ers (1-6) are on a bye this week. Kaepernick, who began the season as the backup to Blaine Gabbert, has started the past two weeks, both losses. He has completed less than 50 percent of his passes and his quarterback ranking is in the bottom half of the league.ddddddddddddKaepernick said he did not feel any extra pressure to succeed on the field because of his social undertaking.Football is my job, my profession, he said. This is part of what I am as a human and what my beliefs are. For me that is completely separate. Though football gives me a platform, these are issues that exist even if football doesnt.Kaepernick said he appreciated all the support he had received since he first sat for a pregame national anthem in August.He talked about the many people who had come up to him and thanked him. He said people had told him theyve had more conversations about issues of racial inequality in the past two months than they had previously in their entire life.The support was huge, he said. It gave me excitement, gave me life. ' ' '
