BELEK, Turkey -- The head of Olympic summer sports federations called for urgent action Tuesday to tackle the critical delays facing the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro and accused the Brazilian government of neglecting the crisis. In an interview with The Associated Press, Francesco Ricci Bitti said Rios troubled preparations are reaching a stage where some sports may need to consider "Plan B" options for their venues. "Its getting very serious," the Italian said. "We have an organizing committee with good people but without the leverage to cope with the problem. ... We are scared. This is not a country like China where you can ask people to work by night. In Brazil, this could not happen. The government has to change speed." Ricci Bitti heads the Association of Summer Olympic International Federations, which represents the 28 sports in the Rio Games. He also leads the International Tennis Federation and serves on the IOC co-ordination commission for Rio, which made its latest visit to Brazil two weeks ago. "We can be flexible in the infrastructure but surely not in the sports venues, and we are at risk at sports venues," Ricci Bitti said. "Even for the ones that dont consider themselves at risk, we dont see a sense of urgency." The timetables are so tight that backup plans may need to be considered by some sports, he said. "We have to sit down and to start looking at some Plan Bs," Ricci Bitti said. Rios problems dominated discussions at the ASOIF general assembly, which took place during the SportAccord convention in this Mediterranean resort in southern Turkey. Rio will also top the agenda for meetings of the International Olympic Committee executive board, which meets here Wednesday and Thursday. "We need to act now because if we wait another six months, as it could be looking at the inactivity of the government, I think it will become very serious," Ricci Bitti said. "The organizing committee is doing its best, but the government is not supporting enough." Brazil is also struggling with delays ahead of hosting the World Cup this summer. With the country focusing on the World Cup, Ricci Bitti said, the Olympic preparations risk falling further behind. "We cant always hope in the fact that in the end we will solve the problem," he said. "This time we have the style and the habits of the South Americans. They are not used to managing big events like this. The Olympics is a very different problem from the World Cup. The World Cup in the end is one stadium, one hotel, in many cities. Rio has a lot of problems." Rio organizing committee chief Carlos Nuzman and CEO Sidney Levy were meeting in Brasilia on Tuesday with Brazilian President Dilma Rousseffs chief of staff to discuss the Olympics. It was left to Rios executive sports director, Agberto Guimaraes, to report to the federations in Turkey. "I still think we can pull this thing together and can have great games," he told the delegates. "The moment I dont I will (give) my resignation. I still believe we can do it. Please help me get through this alive and well." Christophe Dubi, the IOCs deputy executive director for the Olympic Games, said the IOC would be sending special task forces to Rio to monitor the situation. The first group will consist of construction experts, he said. "We have to have special measures in place," he said. Dubi noted that Gilbert Felli, the IOCs long-time executive director, has been assigned to work with Rio after he steps down from his post later this year. The meetings in Turkey come amid a daily drumbeat of troubles in Brazil. On Monday, striking construction workers and security personnel clashed at Rios Olympic Park. Random gunshots were fired but no injuries were reported. Workers also went on strike Monday at the Olympic stadium that will be used for track and field at the games. The venue has been closed since last year to fix problems with the roof. Guimaraes said the repair work would completed by December. The greatest concerns centre on the Deodoro complex, an area that is to host venues for eight sports. Work has yet to begin on the site. In addition, work on the Olympic golf course is far behind schedule, raising concerns for the sports return to the games after more than a century. Guimaraes said grass would begin to be laid on the course later this month and the venue would be ready by September 2015. Chidobe Awuzie Jersey . Interestingly, the culprits were not rookies, but well paid, experienced pros. The first gaffe came in the 24th minute of arguably the biggest early season MLS game in history between Seattle and Toronto. Sounder newcomer Marco Pappa, (with over 100 MLS games, and 39 Guatemalan Caps to his name) attempted a back pass to one of his central defenders. Custom Cowboys Jerseys .K.

Deonte Thompson Cowboys Jersey . Trailing 2-1 from the first leg, Fiorentina levelled on aggregate in the 14th minute when Joaquin Sanchez Rodriguez headed back a long ball from David Pizarro and Pasqual smashed home an angled volley.Leicester Citys Premier League season has been impressive from start to finish, with Claudio Ranieris side cementing their place in history by winning the title. Every member of the squad has played their part - from the week-in, week-out starters to the bit-part back-ups - and Foxes fans now look forward to a Champions League campaign next season.With the clubs maiden Premier League title secured, Sky Sports asked club legend Alan Smith to rate their key title-winning players out of 10. GOALKEEPERKasper Schmeichel - 8Hes grown in self-belief as the season has gone on. Hes a very competent keeper; I wouldnt say hes one of the best keepers in the league. Hes not on the level of Hugo Lloris and David de Gea, but Schmeichel has done all hes had to and he is a good communicator with his defenders. Theres a good head on his shoulders and all credit to him for coming out the shadow of his father like he has. Hes an excellent goalkeeper in his own right. Kasper Schmeichel has been ever-present for the Foxes so far this season DEFENDERSChristian Fuchs - 8Id seen him play a bit at Schalke, and hes obviously the Austria captain so has come in to the club as a highly experienced player. He couldnt get in at the start - Jeff Schlupp was the left-back - but when he did get in, he hasnt looked back. Hes a tough man to beat in a one-on-one, and hes played his part going forward. That ball in for Vardy in the 1-1 draw with Manchester United was a beauty, so hes done really well. Christian Fuchs is tough to beat in a one-on-one situation Robert Huth - 8Another one who doesnt complicate his game; hes a very physical player. In terms of partnerships, he and Wes Morgan have dove-tailed brilliantly. If youre a centre-forward, hes the sort of player you dont look forward to facing. He grapples with you, he doesnt mess about, doesnt mind going in hard, and hes good positionally. He rarely gets caught for pace... hes not the quickest, but he doesnt often get into those positions where hes in a race with a striker. As weve seen on occasions, hes dangerous at attacking set pieces with his height and power. A great success story of the season. Robert Huth has been a rock at the back for Leicester this season Wes Morgan - 8Although hes the captain, hes not overly well-spoken or vocal. Everybody respects him, and hes in a position now where hes lifting the Premier League trophy after having a fairly unspectacular time at Nottingham Forest. A really good character and a good professional, much like Huth. He dictates things, and if he has to find Row Z, he will. Again, hes not the quickest defender, but between the two centre-backs, theyve not really been exposed. Wes Morgan is a well-respected leader for Leicester Danny Simpson - 8The two full-backs have been great. At one stage, Ranieri decided that he didnt want him bombing on too much - they can every now and again - but Danny concentrates on not getting beaten, and on holding his position. Hes done it very well. His career seemed to be heading nowhere - at Newcastle and QPR, it didnt take off - but here hes grabbed it with both hands. Hes not an attacking full-back in the mould of Hector Bellerin, but he is a top defender, very determined. He had a setback when he was sent off at Arsenal, but hes bounced back from that and has done really well. A very steady player. Danny Simpson has found a new lease of life at Leicester Ritchie De Laet - 7Ritchie de Laet joined Middlesbrough on loan in January but, before then, he made 12 Premier League appearances for Leicester this season and did his job well, if unspectacularly. It is the mark of a winning side that you have these kind of characters that go under the radar. Ritchie De Laet has been the perfect back-up player for the Foxes MIDFIELDERSMarc Albrighton - 8Hes been incredibly consistent, a regular in that Leicester team. Hes such a hard worker too, gets up and down. He protects and works really well with Christian Fuchs, and delivers a very good cross as well. Hes got this great ability to float a ball over the head of the centre-half and into the path of Jamie Vardy. He doesnt play a complicated game, he keeps it fairly simple, but hes been extremely effective. Marc Albrighton has been a regular for Leicester this season NGolo Kante - 10Hes been an absolute revelation. Nobody had really heard of him and the way he acclimatised to the Premier League almost straight away when he came into the team was impressive. Claudio Ranieri played Gokhan Inler initially, but he swapped about and Kante came into the side. He played wide against Stoke that day in September, and hes not looked back since. He covers the ground so quickly and effectively, almost glides across the ground. Hes so quick over 5-10 yards and is a great reader of the game. He can intercept withhout needing to tackle, but he doesnt mind a tackle either.ddddddddddddIve hardly seen him have a bad game. NGolo Kante rarely has a bad game and glides across the ground Danny Drinkwater - 9Hes just been brilliant. Hes not a youngster but he knows that midfield role and whats expected of him. Hes a good passer of the ball and likes to hit that long one to Vardy down the channel; he doesnt have to look up often, theyve got a good understanding. Hes got a good partnership with NGolo Kante as well, as a double act they dove-tail perfectly. They feed off each other and suit one another. Hes just been great. Danny Drinkwater has created a brilliant partnership with Kante in midfield Nathan Dyer - 7.5I commentated on the huge game against Aston Villa, when Dyer scored a massively important goal. He scored the winning goal in a 3-2 victory, which signalled the end for Villa and almost the start of things for Leicester. He showed a lot of bravery. I think some people at Swansea were surprised they let him go out on loan. He hasnt had much of a chance but that goal secured three points and you look back at the end of the season and these moments are huge. On loan from Swansea, Nathan Dyer scored a very important goal against Villa Andy King - 7.5I like Andy. Its been hard because hes been a regular before now but has had to step down and be a support act, but hes done it very well when called upon. Hes a very good finisher, as proved by his goals-to-game ratio for Leicester. Hes a hard-worker too, and a very, very good squad player. Andy King has proven to be a great back-up option Riyad Mahrez - 10What can you say? Hes a special player that gets people out of their seats. Hes so exciting and so positive when he gets on the ball. He looks about eight stone soaking wet but hes got that wiry strength about him and is hard to bully. Hes got great balance and change of direction, and of course his goals - hes scored more away from home than at the King Power, and theyve been big goals as well. Invaluable player. Leicesters Riyad Mahrez won the PFA Player of the Year award in April Jeffrey Schlupp - 7.5Hes had to take a step down and has spent large portions of the season on the bench, but he came in the other day and put in an excellent shift against Swansea, as he did when he won the penalty against West Ham - it was a vital point there. Hes very quick and very strong. Hes a good man to have on the bench and bring on. Jeff Schlupp hasnt played every game, but won an important penalty against West Ham STRIKERSLeonardo Ulloa - 7.5He has had a good season. Hes had to play the support act and is a different sort of player to Vardy. Hes a back-to-goal man and was excellent against Swansea the other day. Ulloa has scored some big goals: that penalty against West Ham and then two against Swansea last week. He is the classic sub who is always ready when called upon. He doesnt sulk, keeps his chin up and is always ready for the challenge. Leonardo Ulloa was magnificent against Swansea and has scored important goals Shinji Okazaki - 7.5Hes impressed, particularly in the last 10 or 15 games when hes played a big part. Youll rarely see a player run around as much. His perpetual motion, he never stops. He always gets subbed off with about 20 minutes to go; Ranieris attitude is, Let him run himself ragged and hassle opponents, and then when he starts to tire, Ill bring him off. He drops in, helps the midfield and allows Vardy to push on. Hes played more than his part in Leicesters amazing season. Shinji Okazakis work-rate has made him a valuable member of the squad Jamie Vardy - 10Hes been a whirlwind, hasnt he? Vardy has gone from strength to strength… no worries about his reputation, no fear, he grabs games by the scruff of the neck and what a fine finisher he is. Hes obviously got great pace, but he can finish with his left and his right foot. Its not a flash in the pan - you think, Hes come from non-League, is it a one-season wonder? but I dont think so with him, hes just been a late developer.Hes a top-class striker. He will be important for England at Euro 2016 this summer too. Youd expect him to have a role off the bench, but hes the last person you want to face in the last 20 minutes of a match with his strength and aggression. Hes in dreamland after where he came from.
