NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Ed Temple, the former Tennessee State track and field coach who led the U.S. womens team to 15 Olympic gold medals and helped break down racial and gender barriers in the sport, died Thursday night. He was 89.Temples daughter, Edwina, told Tennessee State officials that her father died after a lengthy illness. He celebrated his birthday on Tuesday.Temple coached the womens track team at Tennessee State, formerly Tennessee A&I, from 1953 to 1994. He was head coach of the U.S. Olympics womens teams in 1960 and 1964 and assistant coach in 1980.One of the athletes he coached at TSU, Wilma Rudolph, became the first American woman to win three gold medals at a single Olympics, in Rome in 1960. She won the 100 and 200 meters and teamed with Martha Hudson, Lucinda Williams and Barbara Jones to win the 400 relay.Temple, whose other gold medalists from TSU included Edith McGuire and Wyomia Tyus, was inducted into nine halls of fame, including the Olympic Hall of Fame in 2012; he was one of only four coaches to be inducted. He also served as a member of the U.S. Olympic Committee, the international Womens Track and Field Committee and the Nashville Sports Council.Temple coached the first U.S. womens teams to compete in the Soviet Union in 1958 and in China in 1975. But he was best known for leading the athletes at TSU, known as the Tigerbelles, during his 41 years as the universitys womens track coach.He coached his teams to more than 30 national titles and led 40 athletes to the Olympics.For many of the women on his teams, Temple was more than a coach.I always looked at Coach Temple as a father figure and a man of truth and wisdom, said TSU Olympian Chandra Cheeseborough-Guice, a former Tigerbelle who succeeded Temple as track and field coach. He really brought out the best in me. He made me realize my potential that had not been tapped.Former Tigerbelle Edith McGuire Duvall said Temple was there for her after she lost her father.This man treated us all like his kids, Duvall said. He impressed upon me to finish school. We were there to run track, but also to get an education and to be ladies.Temple began his career during a time when black female athletes were treated as second-class citizens, even by their male counterparts.At the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo, the U.S. mens team refused to provide Temple with clothes for a female shot putter who didnt fit into the womens uniform. His runners had to practice with Japanese starting blocks because the mens team refused to turn over three blocks sent over for the women.Still, Temples team brought home the gold and silver in the 100 meters, gold in the 200 and a medal performance in the 400 relay.Those were the kind of things we had to battle, he said in June 1993 after retiring from coaching. It was unnecessary types of things. We, the women, were USA citizens representing the United States. Why did we have to go through all that kind of stuff? It just didnt make sense.In a 2007 interview with The Tennessean, Temple said Rudolph was the best female track and field athlete hed ever seen.She had it all, he said. She had the charisma, she had the athletic ability, she had everything. When I look back, she opened up the door for womens sports, period. Im not just talking about track and field.Temple said Rudolph took a nap just before winning the 1960 gold medal in the 100.I was out there all nervous, walking around the infield, he recalled. And Wilma was on the rub-down table, and she had fallen asleep. Fell asleep!Rudolph, who suffered from polio as a child, died of brain cancer in 1994.Temple was born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and attended Tennessee A&I, where he received bachelors and masters degrees.The track at TSU is named for Temple. So is Ed Temple Boulevard in Nashville, adjacent to the TSU campus. Seminars on sports and society, held each year on TSUs campus, are named in his honor, and in 2015, a 9-foot bronze statue was unveiled in Temples likeness at First Tennessee Park in Nashville.Even the Bible says a prophet is seldom honored in his hometown, U.S. Congressman Jim Cooper said at the statues unveiling. But here we are honoring perhaps one of the greatest coaches in all of history.Temple took great pride in the success of his athletes, both on and off the field.They are an inspiration to everybody, he said late in life. It just shows what can be done. Where theres a will, theres a way. Cheap Jullian Taylor Jersey .

According the Toronto Star, a knee injury will keep Sundin out of the lineup, which includes former teammates Gary Roberts, Darcy Tucker, Tie Domi and Curtis Joseph.Canadas mens national team lost its opening game of the 2013 Concacaf Gold Cup on Sunday, after they were blanked 1-0 by Martinique. Thats right. Martinique. You can add this result to the growing list of international embarrassments for Canadian soccer. Weve had our fair share of suffering in Canadian soccer over the years. An 8-1 loss to Honduras that eliminated us from World Cup contention back in October; failure to reach the World Cup finals since 1986, our one and only appearance; a 2-0 loss to Cuba in the 2003 Gold Cup that saw us crash out at the group stage. If you think our embarrassments are unique to the mens program, think again. Twelve months before coming home with a bronze medal from the 2012 Olympic Games, Canadas womens team finished dead last in the 2011 womens World Cup, losing all three group games. Critics can blame the players, the coaches, the weather, the field conditions or any combination of other factors. They are nothing more than excuses. The brutally honest truth is this: we are simply not good enough. That criticism is not leveled at the players, the coaches or staff, who represent our country. They do their very best when wearing the red jersey, and on some occasions - like during last years Olympic Games - they pull off the impossible. The criticism applies to us - you, me and anyone else who is involved in Canadian soccer at any level. We are not good enough. We have stood idly by and allowed soccer to become nothing more than a recreational sport in our country. We have allowed the game to sink to the lowest common denominator, and we have done nothing - absolutely nothing - to put in place an effective development system for players, coaches and referees in Canada. While there are over 850,000 registered soccer players across the country, the vast majority of them are recreational players. Very, very few of them go through what can even loosely be described as an effective development program. Our youth soccer system emphasizes winning over development. The result is a pool of players who fail to master the fundamental skills required to compete at the elite levels of the game. The players - both male and female - who do manage to go on to represent Canada do so by chance, rather than by design. They reach the national team through their own will and determination, not because they have followed a well-researched, well-designed development pathway. It is time for that to change. It is time for the Canadian Soccer Association to put its money where its mouth is and to mandate change in soccer across the country. Thats right. Mandate. Asking for clubs to implement the principles of LTPD is not good enough. Asking for coaches to educate themselvees is not good enough.dddddddddddd Asking for leagues to implement minimum standards for coaching qualifications, training-to-game ratios and competition formats (including the removal of promotion and relegation) is not good enough. All of these things must be mandated. Because if the CSA leaves it up to the clubs, districts or leagues - if they make compliance with these things "opt-in" or optional - they simply wont happen. Because there is nothing stopping these things from being done voluntarily right now - other than the fact that we, as a nation, sink to the lowest common denominator. How can these changes be mandated? Easy. Create two streams of soccer in Canada - recreational and high-performance. Most clubs across the country do an excellent job of offering recreational soccer programs. The evidence is right there in the numbers - over 850,000 players from coast to coast. Leave the recreational programs as they are, and offer those clubs access to coach and referee education, as well as to a national development curriculum for recreational players. Then create a high-performance stream and mandate that organizations must meet the technical standards required to be involved in that stream. Both non-profit clubs and for-profit academies should be allowed to enter the high-performance stream - provided that they all meet the required standards. This isnt difficult to do, but it requires the CSA to flex its muscles a little bit. Given that there are high-performance leagues either already in existence (BC, Quebec) or about to get underway (Ontario), the CSA might be surprised just how little resistance there would be to such a plan. And heres another important component of pulling this off - the CSA needs to sing it from the rooftops. The CSA needs to go on national television and lay it all out on the table. Tell anyone and everyone what the plan is and why it is being implemented. Go across the country and hold open-mike town hall meetings where Tony Fonseca, the CSAs Technical Director, answers questions about the CSAs plan until all the questions have been answered. That is Fonsecas job; he needs to be able to sell the game from coast to coast. He needs to be able to win over skeptics, to convince the many likeminded people who truly care about the game in our country to start pulling in the same direction and start working to fix the broken mess that weve tolerated for decades in Canada. If he cant do that, then he is wrong man for the job. How many embarrassments must we suffer before we say enough is enough? How many more failed qualifying campaigns must we endure before we realize that the time to change is now? The time for change is now.
