SEOUL, South Korea -- The head of the organizing committee for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang resigned Monday, saying new leadership and a "stronger system" is needed to complete preparations for the games. James Harden Jersey . Former provincial governor Kim Jin-sun was elected president of the organizing committee in late 2011 after Pyeongchang won the right to host the first Winter Olympics in South Korea. He was re-elected last year for another two-year term. "PyeongChang 2018 is at a turning point for the latter half of its games preparation, which requires more detailed planning and execution," Kim said Monday, according to a committee statement. "At this critical juncture, I believe that PyeongChang 2018 needs new leadership and a stronger system that will effectively carry out various games-related projects," he said. The organizing committee did not comment on the process for replacing Kim or his likely successor. Kim, former governor of the eastern Gangwon province which includes Pyeongchang, led the South Korean towns two unsuccessful bids for the 2010 and 2014 Olympics. In 2010, he stepped down as governor and had since served as an ambassador to Pyeonchangs bid committee for the 2018 games. Kims tenure was to officially end in October 2015 and it is not known what exactly caused his early departure. International Olympic Committee officials who visited Pyeongchang recently expressed no major concerns about preparations for 2018. Gunilla Lindberg, who led the IOC co-ordination commission on a three-day inspection visit, said a large amount of work had been achieved since the panels previous visit in June last year. "The 2018 games are on the right track, but it is clear that much work remains," Lindberg said. "With only four years to go until the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Winter Games begin, it was important for the commission to be able to survey the progress being made on the different venues. We are pleased to see that work on key sites like the sliding centre and coastal Olympic Village has begun." IOC President Thomas Bach visited Pyeongchang earlier this month and downplayed concerns about tight construction schedules. "It is not new that when it comes to the organization of games that, in one or the other project, there are some delays in comparison to the previous plans, so theres no reason right now to become nervous," Bach said. He said the IOC remains confident that Pyeongchang can organize "excellent" games. The IOC thanked Kim on Monday for "his hard work and excellent commitment" to the organizing committee, known as POCOG. "We held our last project review meeting with POCOG at the end of June and developed with them a clear roadmap of activities until the end of the year," the IOC said in a statement. "We have full confidence that these activities will be delivered by the POCOG team in a timely manner and using their existing processes. We continue to work closely with them on their preparations for the games." Chris Paul Jersey .

The former world No. 1 Djokovic, who is the top seed here despite being ranked No. 2, snuck past 35-year-old Czech showman Radek Stepanek in four high- quality sets, 6-4, 6-3, 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (7-5), on Centre Court. Djokovic appeared relieved when he converted on his first match point by swatting a cross-court forehand winner that just caught the line to end an affair that featured only two service breaks.TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- For the first time in two months, an opponent was standing up to Alabama. The top-ranked Crimson Tide flashed its overwhelming punching power to knockout No. 10 LSU in Saturday nights 38-17 victory Saturday, scoring the final 21 points in punishing fashion. AJ McCarron threw three touchdown passes, T.J. Yeldon ran for 133 yards and two scores and the Tide (9-0, 6-0 Southeastern Conference) turned to smash-you-in-the-mouth football to take control of a game that was tied early in the third quarter. Yeldon carried 18 times in the second half, 25 overall. And down went LSU (7-3, 3-3). "I think we probably played our best half of football," Tide coach Nick Saban said. "We didnt play great in the first half, but man I tell you what, a lot of character out there in the second half." Yeldon and McCarron had hooked up for the game-winning touchdown pass in the final minute of last seasons meeting with the Tigers. This one had no such dramatic finish. Two-time defending national champion Alabama brushed aside its first challenge since Game 2 against Texas A&M. It was a dominant performance two days after one contender, No. 2 Oregon, fell to another, No. 6 Stanford. McCarron was a workmanlike 14-of-20 passing for 179 yards, letting Yeldon, Kenyan Drake and their blockers assert control. He did hit speedy freshman tight end O.J. Howard for a 52-yard touchdown and overtook John Parker Wilson to become Alabamas top career passer. "All he does is win and does what his team needs for him to do," Saban said of his senior quarterback. "I think the guy is the best quarterback in the country." He didnt need to put up big numbers to improve his career mark to 34-2. LSUs Zach Mettenberger completed 16 of 23 passes for 241 yards and a touchdown but was also sacked four times. It was the most points Alabama has scored against LSU since a 41-12 victory in 1947. LSU had won five of the last six meetings in Tuscaloosa, but lost fumbles on its first two possessions, including one on the goal line. The Tigers, who came in averaging 40.2 points, couldnt regain the lost momentum and managed just 52 yards in the second half and minus-9 in the final quarter. "You cant turn the ball over," LSU coach Les Miles said. "In the first half its a 7-to-nothing game and the fullback (J.C. Copeland) runs the ball off left tackle. Then we turn the ball over on the other side of the field. That cost us a terrible start. "We overcame it but it took time." Alabama haas been so dominant lately, some students began chanting "We Want Bama" in the fourth quarter, mimicking the fans of potential challengers to the reigning champs. Trevor Ariza Jersey. This one, at least, was a contest until Alabama scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Yeldon powered the Tide to a two-touchdown lead with a workhorse drive in the fourth quarter. He ran six times for 34 yards and had a 13-yard catch before powering it in with 10:31 left to give Alabama a 31-17 lead. "They came in here thinking that they were going to be more physical than us," Tide defensive lineman Jeoffrey Pagan said. "I feel like we changed that." LSU swiftly threatened to get back in the game when Odell Beckham Jr. raced 82 yards on the kickoff return. Alabama held firm and Mettenbergers fourth-and-13 pass to a well-covered Jarvis Landry was off target. And the Tide fans at Bryant-Denny Stadium could finally breathe. Alabamas Drake ran for 65 yards on 10 carries. The Tide outgained LSU 372-282, including a 193-43 advantage on the ground in a game both sides typically call one of the most physical of each season. LSUs playmaking receivers Beckham and Landry turned in some big ones but it wasnt nearly enough. Landry had five catches for 90 yards and Beckham gained 42 yards on three catches. Alabama limited Jeremy Hill, who came in as the SECs No. 2 rusher, to 13 carries for 42 yards and a touchdown. "You could look at the score and think one thing," Mettenberger said. "But if you watched the game you would know that if we didnt turn the ball over and made some smarter decisions in the third and fourth quarters, it would be a ball game." LSU tied the game at 17 with Colby Delahoussayes 41-yard field goal to cap the opening drive of the second half. Then Alabama turned to a fake punt in its own territory. Alabamas Jarrick Williams took a handoff from linebacker C.J. Mosley and ran for a first down on fourth and 2 in Tide territory after calling time out. The buck-the-odds gamble that is more Les Miles calling card than Sabans paid off. Yeldon capped a 14-play drive consuming seven minutes, 50 seconds with a 4-yard touchdown for a 24-17 lead. "We said if they put their defence back in there, we were going to run it," Saban said. "I felt like we didnt want to give them the ball back. We were playing great on defence. I think it was a big play in the game and for our offence to go down and finish that drive, I think it really changed the momentum."
