RIO DE JANEIRO - Thousands of local schoolchildren will receive free tickets to the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro if city hall and organizers can decide how to pay for them. Wholesale Cheap Jerseys (http://www.cheapjerseysfromchina.info/) .Rio Mayor Eduardo Paes proposed months ago that the city buy 1.2 million of the 7.5 million tickets to be issued for the games about 16 per cent and distribute them to schools.Renato Ciuchini, the chief commercial officer for the games, applauded the idea on Thursday, but said the organizing committee would not foot the bill of an estimated $10 million. This would be up to Paes.There are no free tickets, Ciuchini said Thursday at a news conference.We think the mayors initiative is marvelous and we support it and are working on it with him, Ciuchini added. The negotiation is not finished. ... Its for the mayors office to make an announcement about it.Paes office said Thursday negotiations are ongoing but indicated no specific plan since he made headlines months ago with the idea. This followed criticism that the poor were priced out of last years World Cup in Brazil.We are trying to do something more democratic, Paes said at the time.Even without a ticket, some events like road cycling can be seen for free from the streets.Brazil spent about $15 billion on last years World Cup, building at least four stadiums that are expected to become white elephants. Spending on the Olympics is likely to surpass the World Cup.Rio organizers have a $3 billion operating budget, which is the budget for running just the games and excludes building roads and sports venues.Ciuchini said recently that ticket sales could bring in a bit higher revenue than expected and are crucial to help balance the tight operating budget.Ticket sales represent 13 per cent of operating budget income. Other income is from licensing, local sponsorships, merchandising, and a large contribution from the International Olympic Committee.Olympic host cities are bound by contract to pay for any cost overruns or deficits. Rios 2009 bid document showed $700 million in subsidies from national and local governments if the budget ran a deficit, which Rio hopes to avoid.Rio says its ticket prices are reasonable. About half are priced under $30. The cheapest ticket when senior or student discounts are included is about $8.This is two bus fares, Ciuchini said.He said some banks would even allow the tickets to be paid for in three to five installment payments just like large-ticket items.We believe this is accessible for all Brazilians, he said.___Stephen Wade on Twitter: http://twitter.com/StephenWadeAP Clearance NFL Jerseys (http://www.cheapjerseysfromchina.info/) .C. -- Only two Syracuse teams have won their first 20 games, and C. Cheap Jerseys Authentic (http://www.cheapjerseysfromchina.info/) .35 million. The right-hander had agreed last February to a deal that pays him $3.775 million this year and allows him to earn an additional $225,000 in bonuses based on games finished. http://www.cheapjerseysfromchina.info/ . The club says its first-choice centre back "underwent medical tests on Wednesday morning" which confirmed he has injured his right hamstring. The injury was caused in the second minute of Tuesdays 4-1 league win over Real Sociedad in the Camp Nou when teammate Sergio Busquets accidentally struck Mascherano just above the knee with an outstretched boot.DENVER - Patrick Roy returned to the Colorado Avalanche to restore the glory years he helped forge, and hes enjoying the ride with a young team playing at a high level. Nick Holden scored two goals, Ryan OReilly had a goal and an assist and the Avalanche rallied to beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 6-3 on Sunday night. Semyon Varlamov stopped 31 shots and Erik Johnson and Tyson Barrie also scored for the Avalanche, who have won two straight. Roy helped lead Colorado to two Stanley Cup titles in 1996 and 2001 as the goaltender with a dynamic offence in front of him. Now as the coach, hes bringing back memories of that era. "You ask me what reminds me of the Avalanche of the past, thats the type of hockey we were playing," he said. "And thats the way were playing right now." Those championship teams also featured goal-scoring defencemen, something lacking from last years squad. Colorados blue-liners had just five goals in 48 games a year ago. The Avalanche got four goals from its defence Sunday, including Johnsons first in his return from a two-game suspension for a slash on New York Islanders centre Frans Nielsen three weeks ago. "Its tough sitting out, and to be able to come back and contribute and help the team win is fun," he said. Johnson scored the go-ahead goal at 16:05 of the third when he pinched in to steal the puck and then sent a low shot past 6-foot-7 goalie Ben Bishop from along the boards. "I know (Bishop) from St. Louis, and I shot at him a lot," Johnson said. "Hes obviously a big guy and he doesnt give you a lot of room. Sometimes, big guys like that, you throw it at their feet and they dont see it." Nate Thompson had two goals, Tom Pyatt also scored and Bishop finished with 29 saves for the Lightning, who had four penalties in the last 21:28 of the game. "The penalties killed us," centre Alex Killorn said. "Six minutes where we didnt play in their zone." Holden tied it wiith a power-play goal at 5:12 of the third. Discount Jerseys (http://www.cheapjerseysfromchina.info/). It was Colorados sixth power-play goal in the past three games. Holden notched his second two-goal game when he scored into an empty net with 53 seconds remaining. Paul Stastny added another with 6.3 seconds left. "This is a tough one," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. "Tied game with under five minutes to go. I thought we were getting points from this one. We let them slip out of our hands." Thompson has eight goals, and four of them have come in a pair of two-goal games. He got his first one Sunday when he beat Varlamov on the short side 6:40 into the second period to tie it at 2. Later in the period, he sent a wrister at Varlamov that settled in the crease, and then he skated through to knock it in at 17:37. The Lightning missed an opportunity to move into second place in the Atlantic Division and third in the Eastern Conference after Colorados late-game eruption. "I think were going through a little bit of a rough patch," Thompson said. "A couple breakdowns there at the end and they end up in the back of the net, unfortunately." Colorado stayed within three points of St. Louis in the Central Division with the win. The Blues beat Phoenix on Sunday. The game was scoreless for most of the first period despite plenty of chances. Lightning centre Vladislav Namestnikov had two of them and Colorado centre Matt Duchene was stopped on a breakaway. Tampa Bay finally cashed in when Pyatt scored at 16:49 of the first. Barrie tied it 30 seconds later with a shot between Bishops legs, and OReilly gave Colorado a 2-1 lead with his 23rd of the season 1:42 later. NOTES: Duchene and Nathan MacKinnon finished with two assists. ... Tampa Bay C Valtteri Filppula missed his fourth straight game with a non-displaced fracture in his right ankle. ... MacKinnon extended his points streak to 11 games. Its the longest streak by a rookie since Stastny had one of 20 games during the 2006-07 season.
