SILVERSTONE, England (AP) — Valentino Rossi won the British Grand Prix in wet conditions Sunday to reclaim the outright lead in the MotoGP championship, with Marc Marquez crashing out in another blow to his title defense.

SENDAI, Japan (AP) — Unbeaten Russia kept up its ruthless form at the women's volleyball World Cup Sunday, beating South Korea in straight sets 25-20, 26-24, 25-22 in Sendai to remain top of the rankings with 17 points.

Tournament top-scorer Nataliya Obmochaeva was again the dominant force, notching 25 points to make it six wins from six for Yuri Marichev's side, which hasn't made the podium at the World Cup since a second-place finish in 1999.

BEIJING (AP) — Sebastian Coe cut into one last, rambling oration from retiring IAAF president Lamine Diack in a bid to characterize the attitude of the new regime running the sport.

"We're more than a discussion about test tubes, blood and urine," Coe, who will replace the 82-year-old Diack as president after the world championships, said Sunday at the Bird's Nest. "It is sadly, slightly the territory that we've inherited and I think one of my responsibilities is to move...

The 48-year-old Klopas was in his second season with Montreal after...

INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Sugar Shane Mosley stopped Ricardo Mayorga late in the sixth round Saturday night, winning a rematch between the veteran fighters.

The 43-year-old Mosley (48-9-1, 40 KOs) floored Mayorga with a body shot at 2:59 of the sixth round after largely controlling an uneventful bout at the historic Forum.

The 41-year-old Mayorga (31-9-1) was in unimpressive shape and did little to threaten Mosley, the former three-division champion...
